  • 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!

    Labour leadership hopefuls pass judgement on Osborne’s Sunday trading proposals

    George Osborne has announced that shops in England and Wales may be allowed to stay open for longer on a Sunday. Labour’s leadership candidates aren’t impressed. As it stands, the law permits smaller shops to stay open all day, but those bigger than 280 sqm are only allowed to be open for 6 hours. Osborne’s proposals would change this, giving elected mayors and local councils the power to relax laws in their area. However, it seems Labour’s leadership candidates who’ve commented […]

    Labour needs to speak the language of ethnic minorities if it wants to win 2020

    What does 20% mean to you? On it’s own it is nothing – a mere solitary figure – but when put into context of the general election it’s the ethnic minority swing from Labour to Conservatives. It shows that the Labour Party have completely missed the messages we should be delivering to the ethnic minority communities across Britain. We’ve totally missed it on the economy, mental health and immigration, remaining as committed and steadfast towards the descriptor “party machine” than […]

    Remembering 7/7: tributes from Labour movement

    Today is 10 years since the 7/7 terrorist attacks in London, in which 52 people were killed and hundreds were injured. We’ll be collating words and tributes from across the Labour movement today. Ken Livingstone who was Mayor at the time and gave a moving speech which you can read here, has said the following: Thinking of those killed and hurt 10 years ago and the brave people who helped London respond. London did not let the bombers succeed. — […]

    Don’t just moan – moderates need to organise if they want their voices heard in trade unions

    It did not come as a surprise that Unite nominated Jeremy Corbyn for the Leadership of the Labour Party. There had been a high likelihood this would happen from the moment Jeremy made it onto the ballot paper. The absence of surprise doesn’t make it any more palatable a moment though. Unlike some commentators I am not moved to frenzy by this. Jeremy won’t win the leadership because you need 50% of the votes after transfers to do that, and […]

    Labour’s next leader needs to get older voters back on side, urges Liam Byrne

    Liam Byrne has urged Labour’s next leader to get “the silver majority” back on side. Or he warns the party will be left “on the sidelines” at the next election. In an article for the Telegraph (£), the Shadow Minister for Universities, Science and Skills writes the Britain’s “silver majority” – those aged over the age of 55  – might for the first time “make up the majority of voters in the 2020 general election.” Byrne argues that the Tories won […]
