    Sit tight on the backbenches or dive right in – what next for the rebel MPs?

    Thousands of Labour people spent last night trekking home from conference. For a few of them, however, the journey from Liverpool will have weighed especially heavily in their legs. Those centrist MPs who had spent a year waiting for a leadership contest, and then seen the backbenches rally around Owen Smith only to lose to a re-invigorated Jeremy Corbyn, will be doing a lot of hard thinking over the weekend. The question of a looming shadow Cabinet reshuffle, which has moved from […]

    Jeremy Corbyn is considering a peace deal that would allow MPs to elect centrists to fill a set number of posts in the shadow Cabinet, the head of Unite said today. The Labour leader has held talks with Rosie Winterton, chief whip, and John Cryer, chair of the Parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) which could see the revival of shadow Cabinet elections for a share of posts, Len McCluskey said. It is the latest development after Corbyn won an increased majority in […]

The BBC revealed last week that MI6, our foreign-facing intelligence agency, is in line to receive the bulk of these new staff. When asked by Andrew Marr whether […]

    This is personal: Why Corbyn was right to pledge to revive the migration impact fund

    Immigration is a concern for most voters. But what should be done? David Cameron and Theresa May have seen this as a wake-up call for fewer people to come to Britain. They have tied their governments to an arbitrary number of net migrants. Those who think there are too many migrants will be no more satisfied by 100,000 than 110,000.

    Here’s something we can all get behind: Fighting for a Brexit that is fair to migrants and local communities

    It’s that time of the year again when we all make our way home from Labour’s annual conference – with grand speeches, late night debates and the occasional plot swirling around our heads. What was on my mind on the long way home this year? Brexit, Brexit and Brexit. I’m sure I’m not alone. Despite conference deciding not to directly the most depressing political landslide of our generation, the many aspects of our exit from the EU dominated the fringes, corridors and […]
