One Nation Launch – thanks to everyone who came along and made it a success

16th January, 2013 4:59 pm

A big thank you to everyone who came to our pamphlet launch (and drinks event afterwards) last night in Westminster. Around 200 people (including dozens of MPs and peers) were crammed into Committee Room 10 in Parliament to hear Jon Cruddas Chair a debate on One Nation Labour, with thoughtful contributions from Hilary Cottam, Lord Glasman and John Denham.

We’re now mulling over a few ideas for what we do next with the pamphlet (including potentially a number of events around the country and a hard copy of the pamphlet which we hope will be available soon for a very reasonable price). In the meantime, if you want to know first about any of our future events – don’t forget to sign up to our email list, by filling in th box on the right of this (and every) page.

For those who weren’t there, below is a picture of the crowd last night. It was standing room only. (Yes, that’s David Miliband in the front row, and if you look closely, Lord Prescott is stood at the back). Thanks again to them, and everyone else who attended – and apologies to those who couldn’t get into the room, we were surprised/humbled by how popular the event was.

Those who haven’t done so yet can download the pamphlet by clicking on the cover picture to the right of this post.

    What’s here for Scotland ? Or Wales ? Or NI ? Is One Nation the right terminology in a United Kingdom of 4 nations ? Just saying

    “and if you look closely, Lord Prescott is stood at the back”

    Lord Prescott is STANDING at the back. Did your Cambridge education not teach you that Mark, or is that the point?

  • Are there any speakers who would present on this subject to Labour or Co-op Party meetings?

    It is time to talk to the SNP about how we would make a minority Labour government work

    Labour’s showing in the 2016 elections was terrible, but not bad enough to precipitate a change of leadership and direction, and nothing like good enough to offer any hope of winning a general election outright. There are two hard lessons for Labour from these results: 1. To have an outside chance of forming a government to replace the present reactionary and incompetent Conservatives, Labour has no choice but to construct a loose informal alliance with other progressive parties. The only alternative is permanent opposition and indefinite […]

    Clive Lewis: Labour needs to do a deal with SNP, Greens and Lib Dems

    Labour should explore the possibility of electoral pacts with the Greens, SNP and Liberal Democrats in order to defeat the Tories, according to a Shadow Cabinet minister. Clive Lewis, an ally of leader Jeremy Corbyn, has said that all the only way to get Theresa May out of office is to bring all anti-Tory votes together in a “progressive alliance”. In comments that have divided Labour opinion, Lewis said in The Guardian that working with other parties is “essential” for beating the Conservatives […]

    High Court set to rule on whether Corbyn is automatically on the ballot paper

    A High Court judge is expected to rule today on whether Jeremy Corbyn is automatically on the ballot paper in the Labour leadership election. The senior judge will decide on a claim by a Labour donor that the party “misapplied” the rules when its ruling body granted Corbyn a place in the contest without the need to seek a fresh round of nominations from 51 MPs and MEPs. Mr Justice Foskett will respond to the writ put forward by Michael […]

    Anna Turley: In an Uber economy, an active state can ensure the rewards reach the many and not the few

    Technological change is already beginning to transform our world, changing the way we live and work. The challenge for progressives is to find ways of managing the disruption so that all parts of our society can benefit. As my colleague Tom Watson MP has argued, the question is how we make this transformative process our friend and not our foe. The “job for life” is now rare, replaced with less secure work and more self-employment. The next generation of automation […]

    This sorry tale of Corbyn and Malhotra’s office politics reveals the mistrust at the top of Labour

    There are no winners from the row over access to Seema Malhotra’s office. The whole episode – from “unauthorised” entry to complaint, television appeal and then staff being cleared – has led to anger on both sides. To members it has probably prompted despair. Meanwhile the voting public looks upon Labour and is, once again, mystified. The fascination of the press and broadcasters with this dispute is not difficult to understand. It perfectly suited their narrative of another in a series of proxy battles […]
