Ed Miliband interviewed by young people

    Ed Milliband is clearly a very nice guy. But a Prime Minister? Sadly no. It is a cruel world. But some politicians ‘look’ like PM material. Others say like IDS, Kinnock, etc do not ‘look’ like a PM. Blair looked like an MP. Cameron – pure PR man – looks like a PM. Think hard. Imagine Ed on the steps of number 10. You cannot can you. Labour is doomed to opposition with Ed Milliband as leader.

      It’s not so much a question of what they look like, Malcolm IMO, it is what they stand for. Today, for example he is announcing plans to “solve” youth unemployment – by offering a 6 month”job”. This does not “solve” the unemployment issue – it merely defers it for half a year. In the same way the current government’s idea of “help” is by making them do 8 weeks unpaid work experience for Tesco and other big companies who could afford to at least pay minimum wage.

      We need bold measures to do any good – thinking big – Ed, like the coalition thinks small. Timidity is pointless – like trying to drain the Thames with a washing-up bowl.

    Ken Livingstone is a pariah and must be expelled from Labour

      Ken Livingstone is finished in the Labour Party. His bizarre Hitler rant has succeeded in uniting Corbynista and centrist Labour MPs, as well as the entirety of the mainstream press, in condemnation. He has been suspended and will surely be expelled. For many in the Labour Party, it cannot come soon enough. Livingstone has disgraced himself one time too many and, if he is bowing out, it will be with perhaps his most toxic intervention yet. His comments about […]

    MPs slam Cameron’s right to buy plan over lack of detail

    David Cameron’s controversial plan to sell off housing association properties to tenants at a discount has today come under fire from an influential group of MPs for huge gaps in the detail. The public accounts committee, chaired by Labour’s Meg Hillier, has several concerns over the Right to Buy scheme, criticising a lack of detail, concerns that it may worsen the housing crisis and that the scheme may be open to abuse. The report condemns the Government for only providing […]

    Michael Gove is cynically trying to exploit the EU small print to boost his Brexit campaign – Richard Corbett

    I am somewhat shocked that a man with a reputation for intellectual rigour should throw so many distortions, half truths and lies into his attempt to “launch the Brexit fightback” after a miserable week. Michael Gove started his Times piece with a sweeping statement that nothing has changed in the EU because, er, the treaties have not been changed. That is like saying that in domestic politics (and his article starts with a long list of Government “reforms” to schools, tax, welfare, […]

    Ken Livingstone must be expelled from party, Labour MPs demand

    Labour figures are calling on the party to permanently expel Ken Livingstone as thousands sign a petition demanding John Mann be suspended for his confrontation with the former London mayor. This comes as a Jeremy Corbyn campaign visit to Wales was cancelled today amid the row over handling of anti-Semitism in the party. MP Jess Phillips has become the latest to say Livingstone – suspended yesterday – should be thrown out for his remarks about Hitler, Zionism and the influence […]
