As the Coalition Government reveal their Mid-Term Review – the Labour Party have released their own document “The Tory-led government: A programme for no change”, which the party has described as “An updated version of the 2010 Coalition Agreement, taking stock of the Government’s real achievements date.” You can see the document for yourself below:

    No change? So just as Gordon Brown left it? A mess!

    17 pages of smallish print! It’s a bit heavy going for anybody who isn’t a politics addict.

    So…… No change from an incompetent Labour Government’s policies is a really bad thing?

    Sounds right.

    The progressive majority myth is over – you need Tory votes to win

    “The public is never wrong. We lose elections because we deserve to.” Just as mass each Sunday begins with the mea culpa, to force the congregation to think about the ways in which they could be better, perhaps it would be wise to begin every Labour Party meeting with these words from Alan Johnson this week. I would suggest carving the quote in stone, but that might suggest that lessons have not been learned. In the leadership contest, the demands for […]

    The empty, divisive mantra of “working people”

    When David Cameron returned to Downing Street after visiting the Palace on May 8th, he lost no time in reminding the country that his manifesto was “a manifesto for working people”. This endlessly-repeated slogan of standing up for “working people” is worse than meaningless. It is a rhetorical trick designed to smooth the way for further savage welfare cuts. If the Labour Party wants to avoid fighting – and losing – another election on terms set by the Conservatives, it […]

    ‘Better regulation’ or a gangmaster’s dream? Cameron’s plans for EU regulatory reform need closer scrutiny

    Of all Cameron’s requests from the EU, his call for regulatory reform has been one of the most specific, yet it has received little scrutiny outside the trade union movement. Indeed, of all the thousands of comments on the CBI’s call to promote EU membership published in the Guardian last week, it was difficult to spot any focused on Cameron’s right-wing spin on what in EU jargon is known as the ‘better regulation agenda’. In a rare example of Cameron providing meat on […]

    Working parents can’t rely on a government that gives with one hand and takes with the other

    Ask any working parent about the challenges they face in managing work and family life and childcare is often the first thing they mention. The availability and crippling cost of childcare is a huge barrier to working families, and over the last five years the situation’s gotten worse. On David Cameron’s watch, registered childcare places have fallen by more than 40,000, and the cost of a nursery place for children over two has risen by more than a third. That’s […]
