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

    Was the referendum result good for the union, but bad for Labour?

    Was this the high water mark of secessionist sentiment in Scotland? At first it may seem an outlandish idea. Scottish Nationalism has been a riding tide for over thirty years – from fringe cause, to Westminster representation, to a Scottish parliament, minority government and then majority government. But something also broke in the movement this week. The SNP dominated Yes campaign ran to a large extent on the idea that if Scotland voted for independence, the hated Tories would never […]

    Gordon Brown rules out return to frontline politics

    After his spectacular return to prominence in the final weeks of the referendum campaign – with many crediting his interventions as crucial in securing a final swing towards the No campaign – rumours began to circulate that Gordon Brown might make a more permanent return to frontline politics. His barnstorming speech on Wednesday in particular reminded many in the Labour Party of what they once admired so much in the former PM. Yet today – as he spoke publicly about […]

    Miliband outlines housebuilding plans – including “New Homes Corporations” and public sector housing

    Last year Ed Miliband committed Labour to ensuring 200,000 homes are built each year by 2020. Whether or not that target is ambitious enough has been hotly contested over the past year, but as he arrived in Manchester for Labour conference today, Ed Miliband outlined how that target will be met – as the first of a series of “Labour’s plan for Britain’s Future” announcements. The proposals – the first to be revealed from an interim report of the party’s […]

    We should have high expectations of all fathers

    Three months ago, on Father’s Day, ICM released a poll showing that two out of three British adults think the role of fathers is undervalued. I find this deeply worrying, but sadly unsurprising. There is no doubt that some progress has been made in recent years: many fathers are spending more time with their children, while the ability to balance work and parenthood is an option for an increasing number of mothers. But, while of course welcome, these trends should […]
