LabourList to publish “One Nation Labour – debating the future”, edited by Jon Cruddas

December 20, 2012 9:22 am

A few weeks ago Labour’s Policy Chief Jon Cruddas Guest Edited LabourList on the theme “One Nation”. The week was so well received, that LabourList will be launching a pamphlet and ebook in the new year featuring the pick of the pieces from One Nation week.

“One Nation Labour – debating the future” will be launched in January at an event in Parliament – and we’d love you to join us. Here are the details:

One Nation Labour – debating the future
Time : Tuesday 15 January 6-7.30pm
Venue: House of Commons, Committee room 10
Speakers: Maurice Glasman (Labour peer), Hilary Cottam (Participle), John Denham MP
Chair: Jon Cruddas MP

We’re expecting plenty of interest in this event, so if you want to attend please register by emailing onenationregister@gmail.com.

The launch will be followed by a drinks event for LabourList readers in Westminster – venue TBC

And here’s a sneak peek at the front cover:

    Ye gods! James Purnell not listed as a speaker? Shurely shome mishtake?

    ” Labour List will be launching a pamphlet and ebook in the new year featuring the pick of the pieces from One Nation week.”

    This will be as big a seller as “The Best of Cilla Black” – the worlds only silent CD :-)

    Does it need a book and a pamphlet?. I should have thought a pokerwork panel with the words “One nation” would be sufficient because most of the articles, written very much to appeal to right-wing Labourites, were memorable only for how many times the writer(s) were able to weave the magic words into their pieces.

    A “One nation” pokerwork could be the “Home Sweet Home” of the last century.

    You hold a ‘One Nation’ meeting and it’s in Westminster. Again. Is England the one nation you mean?

      We’re hoping to run a series of events around the country later this year – if you think one might work in your local area, email us (mail@labourlist.org).

      P.S. – it can’t be “again” for LabourList as I’m not aware that we’ve ever run a Westminster event before

    As Osborne made further cuts, his adviser got an 18% pay rise

    In the past year, we’ve seen living standards falling, and while unemployment is down – wages are not up. Public sector pay is frozen. Labour’s cost-of-living crisis line has, perhaps, never rung more true. Not for everyone however. In the past year George Osborne, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and consequently one of the men who has overseen this unequal economic plan has decided to give his most senior adviser Rupert Harrison – an 18% pay rise. It’s reported that Harrison’s salary rose from […]

    “What would you call it?” Nigel Farage defends use of racist term by UKIP candidate

    Nigel Farage has defended the use of a racist term used by a UKIP candidate – who had to resign after his bigoted comments were uncovered. Kerry Smith, the party’s candidate in target seat South Basildon and East Thurrock, had been caught using homophobic and racist language in a phone call, and resigned as PPC on Sunday night. In a statement, he said that he wanted “to see the real issues discussed that touch the lives of people” – but […]

    An election pledge card of two halves?

    So far Ed Miliband has revealed two of Labour’s General Election pledges – first was a commitment to eliminating the deficit, which was quickly followed by a second on immigration. These pledge have been broadly supported by LabourList readers in our weekly survey this week, and that’ll be good news for Miliband and his team as they begin go think about their Christmas break, as these pledges were always likely to be the most contentious and hardest to sell to Labour […]

    Salmond hints at giving support to a minority Labour government

    The SNP’s convention says that it’s MP will not vote on English laws. However, former SNP leader, Alex Salmond has said they might be willing to put this to one side, to support a minority Labour government if no party wins an outright majority next year. In an interview with the Independent, Salmond explained “I would lay odds on a balanced parliament. “That’s an opportunity to have delivered to Scotland what we have been promised.” Giving the example of two […]

    LabourList readers back Miliband’s pledges

    Last Thursday, Ed Miliband made Labour’s first election pledge, Conor Pope gave us the low-down of what this meant.  Effectively, Miliband said Labour would reduce the deficit but noted that a next Labour government would do so while securing the future of the NHS. Labour is long portrayed as the fiscally irresponsible party, and this speech saw Miliband try to rectify this mischaracterisation. So we wanted to know what LabourList readers thought about this pledge. The news looks good for the Labour […]
