    Does Mr Price seriously imagine Blair would admit this, even though he knows it to be true?

    Blair is now completely deluded, as he entrance to Levenson showed yesterday: the would-be sauve, debonair, informal manner – he looks what he is – a cheap actor, the “Ken Barlow” of politics.

    Despite the hoity-toity voice and manner he is the epitome of sleaze and vulgarity.. He is a very good example of why politicians are held in such lo esteem in this country.

    I would once again urge Ed Miliband not to get too close to this toxic individual, or to let his MPs be influenced by him, to allow Blair to be rehabilitated to the extent that he could meddle in domestic politics again: if he does then I think you can consider the next election lost already. It is as sensible as allowing Dr Harold Shipman’s name to appear on the letterhead of an old peoples home.

    Sorry if I have upset the great man’s admirers with a dose of reality.

    Blair too close to Rupert Murdoch? If he’d been any closer he would have probably become the mother of Rupert Murdoch’s children rather than simply their godfather! Pucker up Tony and plant a big wet kiss of Murdoch’s gluteus maximus.

    Findlay says information going to party members for leadership vote is “insulting”

    Neil Findlay MSP, who is running to be leader of the Scottish Labour Party, is calling on the Labour Party to clarify what information will be given to members with Leadership ballot papers. At the moment it looks as though the booklet with candidate statements in it only lists the nominations each candidate received from Parliamentarians and not from Constituency Labour Parties, trade Unions or socialist societies. In response to this, Findlay has released the following statement: “Over the last […]

    It’s Ukip that offends working class sentiment

    After this week’s Twitter row at the Rochester by-election, I am using my keynote speech to the Labour East Regional Conference today to say that it is UKIP who truly offends working class sentiment and represents a party which is fundamentally un-British. Today I am lucky to serve as a Euro MP but, like many in our movement, I grew up on a council estate living in poverty, so don’t need any lectures from UKIP about snobbery. First, we can’t counter UKIP […]

    Balls says money raised from banking fines should go to the NHS

    In a speech today at Labour’s East of England regional conference in Ipswich, Ed Balls has announced that £1bn raised from banks who are fined for manipulating the markers should go to the NHS. He is calling on George Osborne to include this in his Autumn Statement, due to take place on the 3rd December. This also comes after many health care professionals said due to funding cuts, “the NHS and our social care services are at breaking point.” Balls […]

    Join the 1,000 – building a movement for Labour’s future in Scotland

    Last Tuesday I stopped by a Team Findlay phone bank in Glasgow. I was expecting to see a half dozen people making calls. There were close to 40. And that was just in Glasgow. More people were hitting the phones from Aberdeen to Ayrshire and from Dundee to Dumfries to take part in what we’re calling ‘Call 4 Change’. It’s been like this since my campaign kicked off two weeks ago. We launched ‘Neil 4 Scotland’ in the Miners’ Welfare in […]

    We must continue our support for Nigeria’s government in their efforts to bring the kidnapped schoolgirls home

    On 14th April, more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted in Chibok, in north-eastern Nigeria, by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram, prompting a widespread international outcry. Seven months later, many of these girls have still not been able to return to their homes and families. The hell they are still enduring can hardly be imagined. Here in the UK, there is cross-party support for Britain to continue to provide support – alongside our allies – to the Nigerian authorities in […]
