  • Peter Barnard

    Thank you, Laura Wilkes, for making this effort.

    You must be a great asset to your CLP.

    • Dave Postles

       Well said, indeed.  I add my gratitude.

  • Brumanuensis

    Thank you Laura, wonderful spreadsheet. Looking out for Rugby and Nuneaton in particular, as well as Brum of course.

    Voted today at the Church, during a rather doom-laden sounding organ recital. Slightly unusual setting!

  • Lauraeva

    Thanks Laura, I keenly await the result in Reading (Berks) where Labour should gain four seats, two or three from LibDem, one or two from Tory, and an ex-Tory standing as Independent who could win … Cons are self-destructing, losing a standing councillor as Independent and LibDems are on their way to wipeout !

    Either way Lab will have an overall majority of around six seats, and no longer have to pass a nod to the Greens who poisoned their chalice by demanding a council tax rise …

  • Ian Stewart

    Well, East Anglia looks good so far – Norwich and Great Yarmouth!

    Why I introduced the Assisted Dying Bill

    My main reason for introducing the Assisted Dying Bill is simple. It’s a straightforward question of choice and dignity: with appropriate, strong safeguards, terminally ill adults of sound mind should be legally allowed to choose to have assistance to end their own lives. I value life, and I do understand that some people believe very deeply that ending one’s own life is always wrong. Nevertheless, the depth and sincerity of their belief should not mean that they deny choice to […]

    Leadership candidates slam Cameron for inaction over refugee crisis

    The Labour leadership candidates have this morning weighed in on the refugee crisis, in which it’s estimated over 2,500 people have died since the start of this year. Yesterday, David Cameron made the following statement, in which he claimed the following: “We have taken a number of genuine asylum seekers from Syrian refugee camps and we keep that under review, but we think the most important thing is to try to bring peace and stability to that part of the world. I […]

    It will take heart and head to win again

    When I joined the Labour Party in 1979, age 17, I had no idea that for the next 18 years, Labour would be in opposition to a Tory government. As a young activist, I seemed to be on a different demo every week. Thatcher was in power and there was no shortage of worthwhile causes. Marches for jobs, marches against the cuts, Anti-apartheid, the Anti-Nazi League, women against violence against women,… It was a long list. I was full of […]

    We have the money to make Labour a movement – we can’t lose this moment

    Jessie J may have tried to argue it’s not about the money, money, money, but anyone facing a well-funded opposition at an election knows all too well the difference it makes. One aspect of the leadership contest yet to be fully discussed is the cash that it has generated for Labour. The combination of the volume of people paying the supporters rate, the increase in membership and the levy paid by leadership candidates means a serious amount of money will […]

    Leadership matters

    This week has really shown up the petty squabbling in the Labour leadership contest for what it is – inward looking and small. Because when it matters, the Labour Party has united around the issue of giving much needed asylum to refugees. Our differences may seem big – and sometimes they are . They do matter. But the gulf of difference between the way the whole of the Labour Party has reacted to what is needed and the nasty, small […]
