    Austin Mitchell showed us why people hate politicians

    Whilst I was out at the weekend campaigning in Hampstead & Kilburn to get the brilliant Tulip Sadiq elected Austin Mitchell picked up his poised pen and with one article brought shame to our PLP. Not only were his comments ageist and sexist – in the extreme – he also demonstrated complete contempt for both our party and his constituents. In doing so confirmed every disengaged voter’s fear about the politicians – that they’re only in it for themselves – […]

    Britain has to fight ISIS, but should be wary of their trap

    Yesterday night the terrorist group Islamic State released a video in which they beheaded the American journalist James Foley. I would not recommend watching it. The ISIS video was gruesome but it showed more than tragedy – it was also a carefully constructed act of propaganda. And its important we take that into account before deciding on a response. The video begins with President Obama talking about air-strikes against Islamic State. It ends with the executioner telling the camera: “[A]ny […]

    Chuka Umunna sets out Labour’s long-term plan for economic growth

    Chuka Umunna, the Shadow Business Secretary, will today highlight how the Government’s Regional Growth Fund will miss its investment target by almost £1billion – a failure that will lead to “long-term economic decline”. He will slam the “flagship” scheme as being “mired in chaos and delay”. In a speech to local businesses in North London, Umunna will also set out “Agenda 2030″, Labour’s long-term plan to build a new economy that is based on a highly-skilled, highly-paid workforce. This plan […]

    Why we keep messing up in the Middle East

    Britain’s history of failure in the Middle East is 150 years old. The presence of Britain in the region, first as a superpower, then as an ally of the United States, has been a continual source of chaos and instability. Throughout those years, from the occupation of Egypt in 1882 to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, our failure has had a single cause: we’ve constantly over-estimated the power of military force to create peace and order. To start with, […]

    Miliband spokesperson slaps down Austin Mitchell over views on female MPs

    Austin Mitchell caused a stir (not for the first time) this weekend, with an article in the Mail on Sunday. In it, Mitchell suggested that a more female Parliament would be “preoccupied with the local rather than the international (not necessarily a bad thing) and small problems rather than big ideas and issues”.  Understandably, Mitchell’s comments received plenty of criticism, and now a spokesperson for the Labour leader has weighed in on the row, branding his comments “ridiculous and wrong”.
