    Despite the government’s claims of recovery, the foodbank crisis isn’t going away

    This week, following on from my work with Leeds West foodbank and the Yorkshire Evening Post’s (YEP) excellent campaign raising awareness of the issue, I attended the launch of a new foodbank in Horsforth, one of the wards in my constituency, to show my support for the valuable work they do. Our current MP, a Tory, has been completely silent on the issue, while members of his own government have refused to meet representatives of the Trussell Trust to discuss […]

    David Lammy latest MP to call for all-minority ethnic shortlists

    David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, has become the latest Labour MP to suggest applying all-minority ethnic shortlists to future parliamentary selections in order to increase representation for black and minority ethnic (BME) people in Westminster. Responding to research carried out by former Labour minister Parmjit Dhanda and the Insight Public Affairs group on the lack of representation in the House of Commons, Lammy said: “Clearly none of the parties have any room for complacency when it comes to BME representation.

    Even the hecklers get soaked in this old style political tour

    In the first of a new weekly Scottish Referendum column for LabourList, Labour’s Shadow International Development Secretary Jim Murphy, writes from the Western Isles and seaside towns leg of his #100Streets tour.

Despite the weather you’ve seen on television at Glasgow’s brilliant Commonwealth games it has taken until yesterday for me to get properly drenched by […]

    5 books by women for the politically minded this summer

    Amidst the increasingly serious world events this week, two small ripples in the force caught my attention: firstly, the (Baileys) Women’s Prize for Fiction announced the top 20 novels written by women cited as part of its #thisbook campaign. They asked people to say which book (written by a woman) had most affected them. It turned out Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ was the winner.  Though given the gold-standard calibre of the top-20, it was the taking part, not the […]

    Is Osborne using public money to fund an election tour?

    George Osborne is facing serious questions about the use of taxpayers’ money used to fund an “infrastructure tour”, where he tours marginal constituencies and announces funding for infrastructure projects. The Times (£) report that the Chancellor has made 17 visits on the tour in the past month alone. Last week, he was in Southampton, where the Tories are 192 votes behind Labour, and the current MP John Denham is standing down. He’s also recently visited Stockton South, where the Tory […]
