    11 ways CLPs should invest in their online presence before the election

    With an election nine months in the future and with the Conservative’s enjoying a fiscal advantage over us in terms of election funds, it’s imperative that we make use  of the resources available. For MP’s and Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) in marginal areas, one of the most cost effective and efficient investments that can be made is developing an appealing web presence and a dynamic and interactive relationship with the electorate via the various social media streams. At the moment, […]

    David Jamieson elected as Labour win West Midlands PCC by-election

    Labour’s David Jamieson has been elected as the new Police and Crime Commissioner of the West Midlands, following yesterday’s by-election. Jamieson received 50.8% of first preferences across the seven councils voting, meaning that second preferences did not have to be taken into account. The full result is: Labour – 102,561 (50.8%) Conservatives – 54,091 (26.8%) UKIP – 32,187 (15.9%) Lib Dems – 13,056 (6.5%) Due to the lack of independent candidates Labour, the Tories and UKIP all saw their share of […]

    We shouldn’t be forced to choose whether we’re Scottish or British – we can be both

    Less than a month to go until Scotland’s referendum and I’m now sixty meetings into my 100 open air street meetings across Scotland. I marked the halfway point in Glasgow city centre’s Buchanan Street. Hundreds of people joined in. The City Council Leader Gordon Matheson and I enjoyed the good old fashioned politics in the Glasgow drizzle. Fast forward a couple of days and after campaign stops in Bathgate and Linlithgow with Michael Connarty MP, I was off to Edinburgh […]

    Labour must be the party for the socially excluded

    This week David Cameron announced an extension of the Troubled Families programme. Since then, the right wing press have come out hard against our country’s poor, marginalised, and socially excluded, repeatedly using the dangerous term ‘underclass’ to describe them. The announcement led to the following headlines: “Rise of new underclass” (The Sunday Times, £), “Underclass ‘costing the country £30bn a year’” (The Times £), and “Revealed, the staggering scale of Britain’s underclass” (Daily Mail). Labour must offer an alternative narrative […]

    Young people are political, we need to show them politics is worth their time

    Energetic. Ambitious. Optimistic. Passionate. Working with young people for nearly a decade taught me they’re the most likely of all age groups to challenge, ask hard question and tell it as it is. But young people are also the least likely of all age groups to vote. Why?Maybe it’s because they get a bad deal from politicians. Since the Coalition came to power young people have been squeezed hard. If you’re under 35 you’re more likely to be out of […]
