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

    Tony Blair has warned the Labour Party not to give in to UKIP’s arguments on immigration, saying that the party has a “nasty core of prejudice”. In an interview with Progress, Blair says Labour should be take the line that UKIP are wrong: “Let’s be clear: We don’t think that UKIP’s right, not on immigration and not on Europe – so the first thing you’ve got to be really careful of doing is … saying things that suggest that they’re kind […]

    Brand or bland? Are these really my choices?

    Russell Brand has a book out and a great publicist. His diagnosis of our current malaise is pretty spot on. His solutions however are woolly headed at best and inconsistent at worst. But Russell Brand is being taken seriously. He’s never off Newsnight nor out of the pages of the Guardian. People are flocking to follow him in their thousands. He is Che Guevara for the scripted reality generation. The established left simply don’t know what to make of this. […]
