As well as the changes to the Labour Transport Team that we revealed earlier, there have been three other changes made to Labour’s front bench teams today. They are:

  • Chi Onwurah MP has moved from the BiS team to join the Cabinet Office team 
  • Alison McGovern MP joins the Whips Office replacing Yvonne Fovargue MP 
  • Chris Ruane MP has left the whips office and is replaced by Karl Turner MP  

Congratulations to everyone on their new roles.

    Why is Chi Onwurah, one of the very few Engineers in the PLP being moved from BIS, when the lack of manufacturing and engineers is a huge problem in the UK?

    Corbyn’s support among Labour members looks fragile, a leading pollster writes

    Barack Obama and Bill de Blasio are just two of the long list of outsiders who have won primaries having polled around single digits. Ed Miliband went from little-known outsider to Labour leader. In May 2015, Jeremy Corbyn scored 1 per cent in a poll of Labour members. As I write, he is still leader of the Labour party. This pattern recommends a cautious reading of yesterday’s Times/YouGov poll of Labour members. In particular, it suggests that the poll tells […]

    Momentum set to mobilise thousands to back Corbyn this weekend

    Corbynite pressure group Momentum is expected to muster thousands of activists in a series of emergency rallies to counter what it describes as the “deeply undemocratic” efforts to oust Jeremy Corbyn.

Protests have been planned in Manchester, Liverpool, Exeter, Plymouth, Penzance for the weekend, as well as emergency meetings to bring together […]

    McDonnell: Rebels’ leadership bid will land in the “next few days”

McDonnell, a longstanding ally of Corbyn, confirmed he would chair his friend’s campaign once again as expectations […]

    Dugdale and Khan join forces to protect jobs after Brexit vote

    Alison McGovern: We may have a Brexit hangover but now is the time to listen to Labour’s local leaders

    Politics and government are different activities and while the corridors of power are buzzing with the former, the latter is in short supply. Westminster at the moment is in a state of paralysis, poleaxed by a referendum result that few wanted and even fewer predicted. But across the rest of the country, the show goes on. It is notable the first off the blocks in response to Brexit were leaders of devolved administrations, in Scotland, Wales and London. While Westminster […]
