One of Richard Reeves’s first acts as the new director of Demos was to write a thoughtful essay for Prospect on the question of character, and in particular the new thinking on the left that seeks to link character to traditional left-wing concerns of poverty, inequality and life chances. Reeves argues that some on the left are beginning to come to the conclusion that good character matters; that progressive goals can only be realised by a new focus on the old-fashioned character attributes of self-restraint and an acceptance of responsibility.
