    Labour needs to reclaim liberty for the left

    ‘Liberty’, Liz Kendall and Lisa Nandy argue in a collection of essays published by Compass yesterday, ‘should be reclaimed as a defining ideal of left of centre politics in England’. It was a nice coincidence I read colleague David Carpenter’s wonderful commentary on Magna Carta the same week Finding Our Voice. Making the Twenty First Century State came out. Liberty is an important theme in British politics 800 years after Magna Carta was sealed, and inevitably I was thinking about […]

    LabourList survey: Readers say Miliband is doing well (and back him on debates)

    Last night the first round of the debates took place (if you can call Cameron and Miliband being interview separately a debate). On April 16th, Ed Miliband has agreed to appear in a “challenger’s debate” alongside the leaders of UKIP, the Greens, the SNP and Plaid Cymru.

    Morale-boosting Miliband shows he’s more than a match for Cameron

    The impact of last night’s pseudo-debate on the polls is yet to be seen. The impact on the mood of the Labour Party though is obvious and significant. Before Miliband and Cameron took to the stage in the Sky studio, the general mood amongst grassroots supporters was gritty determination tinged with realism. A Labour majority looks far-fetched.
