Go to the election and beyond with the spring Fabian Review. Our cross-party panel of experts sets progressive tests for the next government, whatever its colour.

Michael Marmot, Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, Jonathon Porritt, Martin Narey, Richard Reeves and Phillip Blond spell out what it really means to be progressive and help you cut through the election rhetoric.

Sunder Katwala, Graeme Cooke and Stuart White look at each party’s progressive credentials.

Mary Riddell interviews Alastair Campbell as he throws himself into the election campaign.

Social geographer Danny Dorling writes in his Fabian Essay that there is no scientific evidence that intelligence is inherited and calls on politicans to stop acting as if it is.

And we list the Top Ten Terrible Tories and profile Labour’s next Generation
