    Dugher stokes row with Jeremy Clarkson, brands Top Gear presenter “an idiot”

    Labour Shadow Transport Secretary Michael Dugher has become embroiled in a bizarre row with Jeremy Clarkson after saying he is not a fan of Top Gear.

    Clamp down on second jobs and nationalise railways, say LabourList readers

    At the start of this week, allegations of a ‘cash-for-access’ scandal were levelled at Jack Straw MP and Sir Malcolm Rifkind MP. Following this, Ed Miliband reiterated his pledge that if Labour win in May, MPs of the party would be banned from taking up paid directorship and consultancy positions. Miliband went on to ask Cameron if he would support a bill to do the same for MPs across all parties. Labour used their Opposition Day in the Commons on Wednesday […]

    The Tories don’t have any solutions to London’s cost of living problems

    London needs a plan for growth. By 2022 a city the size of Birmingham will be added to London’s population. No city can afford to expand so quickly and do it in a haphazard fashion. It demands careful consideration and investment to avoid an unplanned mess. But in planning for growth we need to take all Londoners with us. This is a once in a lifetime chance to deliver an inclusive city. In which we hardwire tackling inequality into everything […]
