    Politician 1, date A: “Feel good rhetoric”
    Politician 2, date B: “Feel good rhetoric”

    If you squint really hard, you can almost see some news.

    You’d hardly expect two politicians seeking office to say anything different Would you?. Even if it something that has never happened AND never will or can

    President Obama is doing much better than we have come to expect from an American President. The world is fortunate to have him instead of McCain or Romney.

    Given that class is the major divider in Britain, similar words mean something quite different (although still good) in the US, where few people recognise anyother class than the “middle class” and distinctions such as region vs region, state vs state, and above all race, play a much great role in political like and thought.

    Brexit would be a “gift to Putin”, Dan Jarvis warns

    A vote to leave the EU would prompt fresh uncertainty over Britain’s security, Dan Jarvis will warn on Wednesday.

Jarvis will lay out a stark message that “Britain leaving the EU would undermine vital efforts for peace and stability”, and would be […]

    Weekly survey: English patriotism and devolved mayor selections

    This week Tristram Hunt and Jon Cruddas have both called on Labour to embrace ideas of community and to develop a progressive idea of English patriotism.

There are now three people in the race to become Labour’s candidate for Greater Manchester Mayor: Andy Burnham, Ivan Lewis and Tony Lloyd.

    Momentum swings behind vote to stay in EU

    Momentum has vowed to throw its weight behind the campaign for an In vote in next month’s EU referendum after it held a consultation with supporters. The pro-Corbyn group surprised many people earlier this year when it confirmed they had not taken a position on the referendum, despite the Labour leader and the party adopting a firm stance in favour of Remain. It was seen as the first time that Momentum had not automatically supported Jeremy Corbyn’s position, and led to […]

    Apprenticeships pledge reveals another broken Tory promise

    Another month, another broken ministerial pledge. It centres around the delivery of a promise on apprenticeships, and it fuels the let-down felt by people and businesses in my Bristol South constituency. It seems a long time ago, but the 2015 Queen’s Speech highlighted apprenticeships as a big part of the government’s plan, with a pledge for three million new ones by 2020. Home to some of the most economically deprived wards in the country, Bristol South sends fewer of its […]
