    Latest London Mayor poll shows rise in support for Khan and Hodge, but Jowell still leads

    New polling for the London Mayoral race shows Tessa Jowell is still the most popular candidate among Labour supporters in London – and has even more support among Londoners as a whole. The retiring Dulwich and Norwood MP comes top of potential Labour candidates with 26%, no change from last month. When including non-Labour supporters, this figure rises to 28%. However, Shadow London minister Sadiq Khan has seen a boost in his support, rising eight points to 19%. This appears to have […]

  • Comment There’s no point criticising Stuart Broad without looking at the real issue at hand

    There’s no point criticising Stuart Broad without looking at the real issue at hand

    The ill-judged Twitter comments of England cricketer Stuart Broad tell us less about him and more about society’s need to focus on the issues that really matter. Given my openly stated wish to not just raise the minimum wage, as Labour has pledged to do, but to go further and implement the Living Wage, you may expect to hear me criticising the fast bowler. Well, I won’t be. His comment was certainly not his smartest move: “I’ve heard if you […]

    The values of our NHS should be at the heart of our economy

    So we’re now within 100 days of the General Election. I bet most people outside the Westminster bubble won’t see it in those terms, or care, for that matter. In fact, they are probably already fed up with the constant TV coverage about it. For many people, ‘100 days’ simply means three more pay cheques where their basic outgoings exceed what they’re bringing in. It means three more calls to a payday lender to bridge the difference. It might even […]

    Kinnock calls for an end to “sniping from behind” following Milburn and Hutton comments

    Lord Neil Kinnock has waded into the debate over Labour’s policy offer ahead of the general election and called for an end to internal fights within the party. He said was reluctant to enter into the current conversation but following interventions from people such as Tony Blair and Alan Milburn, Kinnock said their criticisms of Labour’s current strategy were ““so great that it requires a response”. This comes after Milburn along with John Hutton openly criticised Labour’s policy on the […]

  • Comment Politicians who recognise that Cameron is wrong on immigration must have the conviction to say so

    Politicians who recognise that Cameron is wrong on immigration must have the conviction to say so

    On Tuesday, David Cameron said Britain would be a “better, stronger country” with fewer migrants. So, if you’re a migrant, sorry about that. I guess it’s off to the ferry terminal for you (that includes you too, Dad). I’m actually a little confused as to the acceptable discourse around migration. Apparently it’s totally ok, even welcome, for the Prime Minister to blithely observe that fewer migrants would be good for the country. But when Mark Reckless says UKIP would ask EU migrants to […]
