    Another benefit scrounger’s mouth for us to feed.

  • Another reason why I won’t be voting Labour

    I’ll be thrilled if Labour starts to make the case for a Republic. How can we call ourselves a progressive party if we continue to support this out of date institution.

  • No the whole country is not thrilled it is tedious, boring and nothing more than pandering to people who do little with their lives except waste our money. There are some 10 million people in the UK who are republicans and lots more who could not give too hoots about the Royals.

    I wish Labour leaders will understand that they do not speak for all the party or indeed the nation with their assumption that everyone loves the Royals. A change in words so that we are not all put in the lets all make out their wonderful box would be a good start. What is disgusting is this dull issue will now knock of the real issues in the news and no doubt Cameron will yet again get of scot free as the news agenda will not be mentioning Leaveson for a while will they!

  • A new group has started Andrew Labour for a Republic. it is overdue and like the campaign Republic it is gathering support and will make it harder for Party leaders to ignore so many who are against the Royals. http://www.labourforarepublic.org.uk/

      Thanks for that Gary, I wasn’t aware of it!

    • That’s right, and the more people who get involved with us the quicker we can start to effect change. You can signup to our mailing list via the site & that way you’ll definitely hear about our next meeting.

      Incidentally, our response to all this is here: http://bit.ly/TG8rh2

    Luke Akehurst: We must recruit hundreds of thousands of mainstream members to defeat the far left

    It has been a terrible few weeks for centre-left politics in the UK, with the horrific murder of Jo Cox MP, the loss of the referendum and now the undignified spectacle of Jeremy Corbyn clinging onto the leadership despite pressure from across the whole of the mainstream of the Labour Party for him to accept his part in the culpability for the defeat and step down. It is absolutely vital that Labour changes leader and the party is able to […]

    Jeremy Corbyn will lose today’s confidence motion among MPs but is likely to go on to win a leadership election among members, Diane Abbott said today. The shadow Health Secretary, who was promoted yesterday, said she expected the leader to lose today’s poll “because it’s a secret ballot and there’s been no notice”.
