    One further thought… is there any chance of this being used as a Labour Party Political broadcast in some of the allocated TV slots? I think people might actually watch this!

    Whatever the result in Scotland, devolution must remain on the agenda

    As we enter the final week of the Scottish Referendum campaign, when it seems everyone both sides of the border has fully woken up to the momentous decision facing people in Scotland on the 18th September, the Decentralisation Decade report from IPPR North is timely to say the least. The question for next Thursday is will the Scots choose to end the 300 year union? Whether the answer is yes or no (and I hope it’s a no), further devolution […]

I was born here, have lived here all my life and I’m proud to be standing for Labour in my home town, Harrow, at next year’s General Election. But like many people my age […]

    How local government can empower communities

    “Labour stands for big reform without big spending” is the opening line in the One Nation policy review published by Jon Cruddas and Jonathan Rutherford this week. As a London council Leader and in the face of identifying £70m worth of savings over the next 3 years on top of the £100m we have already found, I feel confident in stating that local government is already delivering this aim. As the policy review recognises, local government is leading the way […]
