    There is no such thing as a safe seat any more

    A couple of weeks ago saw the UK elect for the first time a UKIP MP – Douglas Carswell, with a huge majority of 12,000 votes. UKIP made enormous strides in the safe Labour seat of Heywood & Middleton as well, reducing the Labour majority from 5,971 to 617. This rise in the ‘acceptable’ far right should be a cause of concern not just to the Tories but also to us. It is clear from these results there is no […]

    We must tackle Ukip’s emotional appeal

    The result in Heywood and Middleton may have shocked some people, but not all. Some warned this could happen after UKIP took or seriously challenged safe council seats in the north, topped the national vote at the Euros, and polled strongly in Labour areas. Their highest average share of the vote in the 2014 elections came in Labour areas like Rotherham, Mansfield and Hartlepool. We’re told if we campaign on the “issues” people will come back to Labour. This fails […]

  • Featured Young Labour voted against supporting the free education demo, but the debate on tuition fees has been reopened

    Young Labour voted against supporting the free education demo, but the debate on tuition fees has been reopened

    Last night Young Labour voted on whether or not to come out in support of the free education demonstration set to take place on the 19th November. Reports suggest, they voted against the motion. This result could easily be interpreted as another sign that the argument against tuition fees is dead in the water. In reality, it tells us that opposite is true. The very fact that this was a topic for discussion at Young Labour’s national committee, that there […]

  • Comment The scandal of the care workers who don’t receive the minimum wage

    The scandal of the care workers who don’t receive the minimum wage

    There’s been a great deal of focus on the Minimum Wage recently. Labour pledged an £8 an hour minimum by 2020 (only to get into a war of words with Alan Milburn about whether this was enough). Meanwhile at Tory conference, the odious Lord Freud was questioning whether or not disabled people are “worth” the minimum wage at all – and whether some should work for £2 an hour instead. Understandably, the Labour Party rushed to defend the principle of […]

  • News Stagnant wages forcing Osborne to borrow billions more than he did last year

    Stagnant wages forcing Osborne to borrow billions more than he did last year

    Government borrowing for last month was £11.8bn – £1.6bn more than September of last year. Borrowing for 2014 is now almost £6bn more than it was at this stage a year ago, and experts say the problem is that wages are not rising. The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) warned that George Osborne’s forecast for borrowing could rise yet again as a result of these figures, and suggest lack of wage growth is the foremost cause of the Chancellor’s troubles: […]
