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

    LabourList readers back airstrikes – but ground troops are out of the question

    Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander confirmed on ITV’s Good Morning Britain earlier today that Labour will be supporting the Government motion for airstrikes in Iraq. In our survey this week, we have found that a majority of LabourList readers back this decision, with 56% supporting airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq: 40%, meanwhile, are opposed to action, and 4% don’t know – although with a seven hour debate prepared for the House of Commons, there is plenty of opportunity today to […]

    Ed Miliband has made the right call on Iraq. Now he must make the right call on Syria too

    Today Ed Miliband will stand in Parliament, and back the government’s plans for airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq. That’s the right thing to do. Legally, there is a sound case for action. The democratically-elected Iraqi government have called upon the international community to help them fight back against the invading forces of barbarism that constitute the so-called “Islamic State”. It is the duty of those of us who believe in democracy, human rights and freedom from oppression to stand with […]

    Air strikes in Iraq are a fundamental mistake

    Over eleven years ago, MPs filed into the House of Commons to determine whether the UK should invade Iraq. There’s no need to rehash what happened, we all remember the outcome. Today, another crucial vote on Iraq will take place. Later today MPs will decide if the UK should join the US and France in carrying out air strikes in Iraq, to counter the rise of the Islamic State (IS). Although it’s yet to take place, the result is a […]

    Labour on Iraq and Syria: No Contradiction

    With the Cabinet meeting today and Parliament being recalled tomorrow, it looks as if British forces will again be committed in the Middle East, possibly as early as this weekend. Contrary to its position prior to the Syria debate last August, however, following a meeting of the Shadow Cabinet yesterday Labour has already announced that it will support the Coalition on air strikes against Daesh (ISIS) in Iraq. Labour’s position appears to be popular with the public but is it […]

    The Sun’s latest attack on Ed Miliband falls flat

    So this morning, The Sun attacked Ed Miliband – not for the first time. But the way they did it was pretty pathetic, even by their standards – but making it appear that Ed Miliband had refused to back a charity for war veterans. Here’s how it looked: So as Political Scrapbook have noted, that’s The Sun using a registered charity to try and beat up on a politician. That’s a dangerous road to go down, but the story itself […]
