    Power to the regions

    After one of the greatest shocks to the global financial market, UK plc is tentatively getting back on track. Unemployment is at a six-year low, and the UK economy grew by 3.2% in the second quarter compared with the same period last year. However, whilst London and the financial services sector have played an important role, the real story is what’s happening elsewhere in the country. In the North West, a regional economic powerhouse is starting to take shape thanks […]

    Gordon Brown’s barnstorming speech in defence of the Union

    Gordon Brown’s speech this lunchtime has already been heaped with praise as ranking among his best – and it only finished an hour ago. If you have thirteen minutes to spare today, watch this: “When young men were injured in these wars, they didn’t look to each other and ask whether you were Scots or English; they came to each others’ aid because they were part of a common cause. And we not only won these wars together; we won […]

The great battle to save Rosyth was […]

    This referendum proves that nationalism is never a means to a progressive end

    There’s the Not All Argument. You’ll have heard it. It’s not all men. Not all coppers. Not all journalists at the News of the World. And then there’s the Small Minority Excuse. You’ve probably dismissed it before. Every time a new UKIP councillor is exposed as a bigot, Nigel Farage will remind us that they come from a small minority within the party. Now, it is the Scottish nationalists having their name dragged through the mud, as a biased media focusses on […]

    This is Labour’s radical English moment – we shouldn’t miss it

    Whatever happens tomorrow, things have changed. If the United Kingdom endures, and I hope it does, relations between our nations will be recast. We are not one people. We will be forced to recognise what we were all along, as Gordon Brown argued in 1998: a union of nations each with its own history, politics and identity. North of the border, the referendum will be followed by an extension of self-government, however the vote goes. Here in England, Labour faces […]
