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.

    Tories’ turmoil should ring snap election alarm bells

    As most party members know all too well, Labour will face its first major electoral test under Jeremy Corbyn this May.

    Scottish Labour have announced their list candidates rankings for May’s Holyrood elections. With the election taking place through Additional Member System (AMS), there are two types of candidate, constituency and list. Given current polling, and the near wipeout in last year’s general election, it is expected that the vast majority, if not all, of Labour’s MSPs come May will be elected via the the lists. The candidate shortlist was announced in December, and was the largest ever for the party […]
