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

    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

    Independence? UKIP can’t even spell it

    Slow clap for UKIP, who have put out a leaflet in Blackpool in which they’ve managed to spell their own name wrong. Proudly proclaiming themselves as the “UK Indepencence Party”, the leaflet has been delivered to voters for the Clifton by-election taking place today. Maybe their campaigning against “Eurocrats” has just been a typo all along.

    Company pulls out of workfare scheme days after Osborne visit to promote it

    A business in Bristol has pulled involvement with the Government’s controversial workfare programme, only days after Chancellor George Osborne paid them a visit to publicise the scheme. Byteback IT Solutions welcomed Osborne earlier this month for an opportunity to publicise the Help to Work programme, where long-term unemployed must work on placements in order to receive their benefits. However, after campaigners took to Byteback’s social media sites to protest, they decided to terminate their involvement, saying they had been “ill-informed” […]

    Cameron to make Tory party donor a peer

    The Times (£) have reported that next month, David Cameron will make a donor to the Tory party a peer in the house of Lords. This appointment will be made alongside a dozen of others in August, including political peers but also “working peers” such as   party donors. A senior Conservative source said said that including donors on the list  would “complicate” the way it’s perceived by the public. Downing Street, hoping to avoid controversy over this, have yet to […]

    The Commonwealth is a good not just a games

    The Right hate the Left pointing out the achievements that we have brought to any moment of national unity.  Just remember Tory MP Aiden Burley’s horror at a telling of our national story at an Olympic opening ceremony that was warm, inclusive and celebrated both our capitalistic and socialistic achievements. The Commonwealth games organisers had an incredibly difficult balance to strike last night, finding the political balance between being proud of Scotland without that pride seeming to make a statement […]

    Labour will bring back two hours of sport for primary school children

    Harriet Harman will today announce plans to reintroduce a minimum two hours of sport a week for primary school children. The policy was first introduced by the last Labour Government, but a study last summer showed that the number of children receiving at least two hours of sport education a week had halved under the Coalition. Harman’s speech, which coincides with the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow today, will be given at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in […]
