Whilst addressing the Home Affairs Select Committee today, comedian Russell Brand said:

“Theresa May’s up next, check she knows what day it is…”

 

  • Drugs policy

    Choosing to highlight a political point-scoring joke rather than engage with the controversial issues under discussion? What a good example of where the Labour party went wrong!

      Its perhaps an example of where this blog went wrong, but its really beyond redemption now.

      On the substantive issue, unfortunately there are some topics about which it is entirely impossible to have an honest debate and drugs remains one of them. Too often discussions drift into politicians denying that they have ever tried them, and there is a constant failure to discuss the issues involved. All parties are equally guilty. In the meantime, nothing at all changes about the use of drugs nor their global distribution

    Lift cap on borrowing so councils can build – say Labour PPCs, councillors and AMs

    A group of London-based Prospective Parliamentary Candidates, councillors and London Assembly Members have written an open letter (published in the Guardian), calling on party leadership to go further in their policy commitments when it comes to building houses. Although the letter praises Ed’s pledge that the next Labour government “will build 200,000 homes a year by 2020″, the cohort which include urge leadership to commit to lifting what they deem the “arbitrary cap [placed on councils] on borrowing to build”.

    We stand up for human value – we proudly defend the Human Rights Act

    If you’re part of the Labour Party, or hold any similar values, you will certainly share the absolute belief in respect and dignity for everyone.

The publication this week of Human Rights: Reflections on the 1998 Act by Jonathan Cooper in Stephen Hockman’s Law Reform 2015 (with […]

    Friendship and solidarity must prevail, as the fog clears

    The air hangs thick this morning with the referendum. Last night a deep fog rolled down across Edinburgh, but in reality it is the campaign which has blotted the vision and stopped even the keenest of observers from seeing what lies just a few footsteps ahead. The final days has provided one crucial clarification though – the No campaign is capable of great passion and powerful rhetoric. Mocked, endlessly criticised, a reputation dragged through the muck.
