    Burnham remains most popular frontbencher in latest Shadow Cabinet rankings

    It’s been a while since we’ve done the shadow cabinet rankings, so we thought with the minor reshuffle that happened following Jim Murphy’s resignation – and as some, including Mark Ferguson, are calling for Miliband to use his front bench team more – we’d see what LabourList readers thought of each member of the shadow cabinet. Before we take a look at the results, here’s a quick explanation of how we’ve figured out each shadow cabinet members percentage rating. We asked […]

    Our defeat last night shows Labour’s forgetting the politics of inclusion and compromise

    There was a moment when we could have won Rochester and Strood. Talking on doorsteps there a month back, the mood seemed to be a plague on all your houses. People weren’t sure of UKIP, lots of people saying they were divisive and opportunistic. Mark Reckless was described to me as a vain man who lives up to his name. No-one seemed to see much evidence of the Conservatives’ economic ‘recovery’. Labour wasn’t trusted. But we could have stood above […]

    UKIP’s Reckless win is a disaster for Cameron – but it was a painful night for Labour too

    It was another long night waiting for the results to come in from Rochester and Strood, but when they did they confirmed what was already all but expected – UKIP had won and Mark Reckless had been re-elected to Parliament. Let’s focus first on the fundamentals from the Rochester and Strood result. David Cameron has lost another by-election. A second MP has defected from his party, joined UKIP, stood against Cameron’s party and roundly thrashed him. This seat was number 271 […]

    Emily Thornberry’s resignation – a “no cock ups” strategy or a wild over-reaction?

    Emily Thornberry’s now infamous tweet from Rochester was clearly a fairly epic mistake – a real “What on earth were you thinking?” moment. Of course the likelihood is that Thornberry wasn’t thinking about how her tweet would be interpreted, the firestorm that would ensue or where, dramatically, the story would end – with Thornberry’s resignation from the Shadow Cabinet. The tweet appeared crass. It appeared to play into negative stereotypes about Labour MPs not understanding voters, their concerns and their lives. But […]

    Emily Thornberry resigns from the Shadow Cabinet

    UPDATE: Emily Thornberry has released the following statement: “Earlier today I sent a tweet which has caused offence to some people. That was never my intention and I have apologised. “However I will not let anything distract from Labour’s chance to win the coming General Election. “I have therefore tonight told Ed Miliband I will resign from the shadow cabinet.” Thornberry reportedly had a private dressing-down from Miliband earlier today. A source tells LabourList: “Ed and Emily had a second […]
