  • Dennis has become the House jester. We need more than anti-Tory rhetoric.

    • Peter L Carabine

      No! we need¬† more anti- Tory rhetoric; Labour members who can inspire, attack and expose what is becoming¬† a nasty Tory government where those on a quarter of a million are to have their tax reduced, where joblessness is rife, where poorer¬† families will lose¬† income next week, where public service employees have wages frozen and shortly will be reduced but where managers at Barclays earn over¬† 20 million¬† per year.¬† Never,¬† never forget less you do not read them the tabloids are full of¬† anti-Labour and anti-Lib Dem rhetoric day in day out. Until we combat the ideology of the Right Wing / Neo-Liberalism we are weakened. Well done Brendan Barber for today’s¬† relevant rhetoric:

      “This budget is shaping up to be a giveaway for the
      super-rich and a takeaway for Britain’s hardest hit regions‚Ä̬†¬†¬†

      • I’m not complaining about anti-Tory rhetoric, just saying that we need more than anti-Tory rhetoric.

    The EU referendum showed that UKIP is now the biggest threat to Labour

    For a long time now commentators and Labour figures have regularly remarked on the growing cultural and political distance between the Labour Party and the core Labour vote, particularly outside London.¬†This fact was clearly demonstrated in the EU referendum, where Labour heartlands overwhelmingly rejected Labour‚Äôs stance on EU membership and all things associated with it.¬† This should serve as an immediate and urgent wake up call to the Labour Party. During the referendum campaign I served as General Secretary of […]
