Dennis Skinner, Clegg and a horse

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.

    Clacton polling: What does it say for Labour?

    The date for the by-election in Clacton was confirmed this morning as Thursday, October 9th – not only the day after the Lib Dem conference finishes but also David Cameron’s birthday. The two polls so far in the constituency do not point to many happy returns for the Prime Minister, as the result appears to be a foregone conclusion. At the weekend, a Survation poll in the Mail on Sunday gave UKIP a 44% lead over the second place Tories. […]

    Does Labour have a problem with black men?

    Now that may seem a strange question for a Party that has both Chuka Umunna and Sadiq Khan in its Shadow Cabinet but something troubling is emerging from the current round of Parliamentary selections. Of the 100 constituencies where Labour hopes to make gains or when Labour MPs have announced their retirement/parliamentary by-elections since 2010 so far just three have selected a BME male candidate. And this is from a section of society which is immensely loyal to the Labour […]

    Why are you Labour?

    Why are you a member of the Labour Party? I’d been a member for years when someone first asked me that question. On some level I guess I knew the answer, but no-one at any Constituency Labour Party meeting, canvassing session, conference – or even in the pub  –  had ever outright asked me the question. It was Arnie Graf – an American, rather than someone steeped in the party their whole life – who asked me. It was an obvious […]

    Eddie Izzard commits to running for “Parliament or Mayor” by 2020

    Comic and actor Eddie Izzard has reaffirmed his longstanding commitment to entering electoral politics by 2020, by going for a Labour parliamentary selection or London Mayor. Izzard is a lifelong Labour supporter (and Londoner) and has spoken in the past of his desire to become London Mayor. However, the recent announcement that Boris Johnson does not intend to stand for a third term has raised the chances of Labour winning the mayoralty in 2016, and thus there being a Labour incumbent in […]

    Jowell takes on new London-based role before potential mayoral bid

    Tessa Jowell has taken on a new role lecturing at the London School of Economics (LSE), which should give her the time to concentrate on a likely campaign to be Labour’s candidate for London Mayor. Jowell, who is standing down as an MP next year, has started her post as Professor of Practice with the LSE Cities and in the Department of Government part-time. Jowell is currently considered one of the front-runners in the race for Labour’s candidacy, but all […]
