Speaking on the radio this morning, the ex-Pontypridd MP said the party 'lacks radical thinking'.

Mr Howells also said most of the creative thinking is 'coming from the right.'

He warned that Labour would become a 'small and unimportant party' if changes aren't made.

I think the problem is that it was unmitigated gloom, and that unmitigated gloom that Miliband promulgated was because nobody is thinking in a radical way within the Labour Party.

It's dull, it's boring it doesn't inspire anyone and that's because they've stopped thinking about what kind of society they want in the future.
