    Perhaps you could teach Jezza a thing or two Owen?

    Loved this- and seeing Billy Bragg on This Week…..

    I think you all do and say more in one sentence than any amount of
    right wing spin and rhetoric.

    Those people didn’t look like “militants,” more the Big Society!

    It’s people in the end that will make all the difference.

    Thankyou- and don’t lose the sense of humour!

      I hope more people see this Owen and Mark- I thought brilliant.

      It just challenges all the misconceptions and makes the rhetoric look very silly.

      Every time I read yet more ranting and raving about public service workers
      and the unions etc; I’ll visualize this video!

      Maybe you could do something like the Andrew L Rap next time?!

      We could all provide the chorus!

    Over the summer, I wrote a piece for the Evening Standard in which I worried openly about: “Labour [Mayoral] hopefuls could spend months grandstanding, peeling away from party policy and ingratiating themselves with the London establishment.” Last week Ed Miliband announced that the party’s proposed “Mansion Tax” would be spent on funding the NHS. And in the week since, several London politicians who are likely Mayoral hopefuls (and a few other London politicians) have spent their time at best distancing […]

    Ed’s speech: the missing bit

    Pity poor Ed Miliband. Think of all of the weeks of preparation which he and his team must have spent on his conference speech, the last before the General Election. The speech which was designed to set out Labour’s vision for the country: a vision which was going to persuade us to give it a mandate for change. And after all that work, the only thing which anyone will ever remember about it is that he forgot the bit about […]

    Tory Minister says teenagers will have to “work forever”

    Is it any wonder young people aren’t flocking to the Tory Party? Not only have they announced plans to slash benefits for young people today, but the Skills Minister took to a fringe event earlier to tell Britain’s teenagers that they will “work forever”. According to Politics Home, Nick Boles told a Policy Exchange event: “My message to them, which always puts them back on their feet but makes them laugh, is that basically they’re going to work forever, their […]

    Weekly Survey: Labour conference and the Reckless defection

    We are now well into party conference season, and while the media may have set their narrative for Labour’s conference last week, how do you feel it went? Take into account how it was reported, how it came across with voters, the policies that were announced, the performances of those representing the party and, of course, your own experiences of it. We want to know how party supporters really felt about it. Particularly, how did Shadow Cabinet members do? Shadow ministers […]
