    No much from Wales really, but I suspect my  CLP is still sleeping, nobody has told them yet, they will be shocked tomorrow when they are told everyone is on strike.

    Sutton and Cheam CLP have also written letters pledging support of N30 to the Party and various other bodies, including the incumbant Lib Dem MP. If I know of this one I am certain there are others also missed off this list.

    Islington North CLP backs the Day of Action!

    I contacted Labour List telling them that Thornbury and Yate CLP was also supporting the action. It is a shame that they couldn’t be bothered to update the list, perhaps the smaller CLPs aren’t important enough for them?

  • Peter Wheeler

    You can add Salford and Eccles CLP to that list. We had a speaker from UNISON at our Trade Union Forum last week and some of us are just going into Manchester nowfor the Rally.

    You can certainly add Bootle CLP as well

    Ilford South CLP should also be on that list. We were out in force with Unison and GMB today, tacking local government, NHS and education staff taking industrial action.

  • Deb Gardiner

    You can also add Isle of Wight CLP – good turnout from Party members at local rally today and banner proudly on display!

    Hi all – don’t be cross with Labour List, Mark added the 95 CLPs (as they were then) as we gave them to him earlier this week. We’ve been updating the list on the unionstogether website, here: http://www.unionstogether.org.uk/blog/entry/local_labour_parties_are_backing_public_sector_workers_on_november_30/ (including Thornbury and Yate and Ilford South). I will also add Salford and Eccles now!

    I am surprised that none of the Leicester City CLPs are listed.  After all, Labour have all 3 City MPs, the Elected Mayor and 52 out of  the 54 Councillors.  Still, none of the Leicester MPs verbally supported the strikes.  Perhaps that was on orders from the Party Leader.

    “We ruled it out” – Ivan Lewis says move to set up a Northern Irish Labour Party is unlikely

    The UK Labour Party appear to have put the brakes on a proposed move to start running joint candidates with Irish Labour in Northern Ireland. The Irish Labour Party passed a motion at their conference this weekend supporting establishing a commission to investigate founding a new Northern Irish Labour Party, whose members would hold full membership of both the Irish and British Labour parties. Currently, Labour’s sister party the SDLP stand in Northern Ireland, and take the Labour whip in […]

    “We owe it to the LGBT community” – Miliband announces Labour would pass ‘Turing’s Law’

    Ed Miliband has said that Labour would posthumously pardon men who had were prosecuted for being gay under the gross indecency law (which made all sexual acts between men illegal). This would be known as ‘Turing’s Law’. It would be named after Alan Turing, the WWII codebreaker who was convicted for being gay in 1952. Turing was pardoned in 2013, 54 years after his death. However many other men who were convicted because of their sexuality have not had their […]

    Tory MP says minimum wage advocates are practicing “the politics of envy”

    George Freeman, Tory MP for Mid Norfolk and Minister for Life Skills, has come under criticism for saying that  those who want to punish companies who aren’t paying the minimum wage are engaging in the “politics of envy.” Freeman, a former biomedical venture capitalist (someone who essentially invests in biomedical technologies), made this comment in the Commons when he was asked about the number of companies who were prosecuted by the government for paying below the minimum wage. He said in […]

    Diane Abbott: “Londoners want a Mayor who is not just directed by party bosses”

    I can hear the low murmur of the BBC News in the other room, complimented by the clack of typing in the small but hive-like parliamentary office behind me, when I knock on Diane Abbott’s door. Described by some as a “maverick” and branded a “hypocrite” by others, I’m not sure what to expect of the MP who so often divides opinion. She calls me into her office and I’m initially struck by how sparsely decorated it is; for a […]

    It’s naive for Labour activists to encourage people to vote tactically for other parties

    It is good to see the vast majority of Labour members focussed on campaigning in key marginal seats and promoting the positive policies being announced nationally. However, we are already beginning to see some of the same nonsense we saw in the run-up to 2010 with calls for tactical voting for the Lib Dems and Greens. The “Compass” group started out well over a decade ago as an inside-the-Labour Party “soft left” faction or think tank, filling the gap between […]
