    Tony Blair: The utter hypocrisy of the Daily Mail over ISIS suicide bomber

      This is the full response published by Tony Blair on his website following a Daily Mail story on the Tory government’s £1m compensation payment to a former Guantanamo Bay inmate who later became an ISIS suicide bomber. I would not normally respond to daily stories about events which happened during my time in office but on this occasion I will do so, given the utter hypocrisy with which this story is being covered.

    McDonnell demands “manufacturing renaissance” to revive Britain after Brexit

    John McDonnell will today lead calls for a “manufacturing renaissance” to power Britain’s economy in the aftermath of Brexit. The shadow chancellor will set out his vision of a “high investment, high productivity” future and draw on Germany’s Mittelstand, in which the success of medium-sized firms has helped deliver widespread prosperity. He will also seek to move the pressure over Brexit back on to the government – following a Labour rebellion earlier over article 50 earlier this month – and […]

    Alison McGovern: If Britain does nothing amid the horror of Syria then we allow a terrible new world order to take hold

    There have been times over the last five years when I have sat in the House of Commons and felt as though we had the power to affect real change. Yesterday at Foreign Office questions was not one of them, at least regarding one issue that will surely define our current time. Syria, and the horrific abuse of humanity we have seen there, was hardly mentioned. The situation for Syrian citizens makes this conversation urgent. Before Christmas last year, we […]
