A Dennis Skinner classic at PMQs yesterday:

    Dennis Skinner is one of our LAST surviving ‘decent’ MP’s. Most others are simply cash-earners, whether the source is tax or private business.  It’s all so sad :(

    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”

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

    Ahead of the Ukip party conference, which will take place tomorrow and Saturday in Doncaster, the Labour leadership have highlighted that the anti-EU, anti-immigration party is more Tory than the Tories.

    What kind of party are we?

    The Labour Party have returned from our annual conference with sore heads and slightly sore hearts. The atmosphere rarely got off the ground. Whereas usually this is our first big event of the political season – one wecome to fresh from our holidays – the referendum changed all that. There were many who were completely exhausted from campaigning before the week had even begun. But it was more than that. The referendum showed us a glimpse of a different kind […]

    Miliband says Labour will back airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq (but, not yet, in Syria)

    After a a hastily arranged Shadow Cabinet meeting this afternoon in Manchester, Ed Miliband has announced this evening that Labour will back airstrikes against ISIL. However, the airstrikes will only (for the time being) take place in Iraq, where the government have asked for the support of the international community. The position Miliband set out yesterday (that Labour would want to see a UN Security Council Resolution before supporting action), only counts for the quagmire that is Syria, mired in […]

    A chance to end Labour’s hypocrisy on working class representation?

    Practice what you preach. It’s not a bad a principle and it’s one that Labour could do with bearing in mind every now and again. Just before conference Labour’s shadow women’s and equalities minister, Gloria De Piero, announced the party would force public sector staff to declare their social class. To bring about change you need to know how bad a problem is and whether what you’re doing to solve it is working. Middle class domination of the upper reaches of […]
