It is a Manifesto to further our goal of a modern, progressive Britain, based on the values of fairness, respect, decency and openness.  It sets out plans to address the main future challenges we face in our economy, our society and our politics: rebuilding our economy; renewing our society and restoring trust in politics.

Gordon Brown said in the foreword to the manifesto:

"Our aim is a modern, progressive Britain based on fairness, respect, decency and openness. This is a Manifesto about the greater progressive change we need because of the tougher times we are living through. There are no big new spending commitments, but there is a determination for every penny to be used wisely, and, as present plans make clear, to give the maximum protection to frontline public services. This is a moment to show greater boldness in response to what Britain has gone through and the toll it has taken.

I love Britain and want the very best for our country. This Manifesto is my pledge of a future fair for all."
