    I was wrong on Corbyn – and with a united team we can win a general election

    How things have changed. Back in February 2015, I was standing shoulder to shoulder with Jeremy Corbyn during my General Election campaigning in the Nethermayne ward of the South Basildon and East Thurrock constituency. I remember clearly at the time, and long before anyone had used the term “Corbynista”, some Labour Party staffers and members thinking that I was wasting my time by inviting him.

    Sudden focus on the DUP shows how Westminster politicians have neglected Northern Ireland for far too long

    The result of the June 8 threw a Northern Irish party into the forefront of British politics – as part of an attempt to shore up Theresa May’s government – and all of a sudden politicos and journalists were in a muddle trying to understand the workings of one part of our nation. That it took a general election for some to care is shameful. Wherever you stand on the question of Northern Ireland’s status – in favour of a united […]
