"New Labour: New Puritanism"

That's the working title. Of course, titles can change.

The ambition is a book that examines two questions. Have we, as a nation, become more puritan over the last ten years? And how far can that be attributed directly to New Labour?

The obvious answers seem to recede as the questions come into focus. So it feels as though I have a happy few months of research ahead of me.

At the same time, any thoughts, angles, intuitions or perceptions on this issue would be exceedingly welcome.
