    ‘Big fairies’??? How very dare they! ‘Big fairy’ is one thing I’d never associate with ‘Big Eck’.

    On the other hand, I’m reminded of blogger Sturdy Alex’s comment that occasionally at PMQs Cameron reminds him uncannily of a third rate drag act trading insults with a rowdy audience.

    NB: In the light of the Observer’s problems with Julie Burchill, perhaps I should add that that comment is anti Cameron rather than anti drag acts!

    Triumph in London and despair elsewhere: Corbyn looks safe for now

    Jon Trickett: In Jeremy Corbyn’s first national test, we have beaten the Tories

    Back in April, I wrote on LabourList that “we should be looking for Labour to advance on the 2015 election results, where we finished almost seven per cent points behind the Conservatives.” According to the BBC’s projection, Labour has now closed that 7 point gap and achieved a one point lead across the country in yesterday’s elections. That means that in the first national test of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour, we have beaten the Tories. It certainly represents progress, but it […]

    Burnham considering a run for Manchester mayor – so should he stay or go?

    Andy Burnham is considering seeking the Labour nomination for the contest to be Manchester mayor, it emerged last night. The new post will be part of George Osborne’s “devolution revolution” settlement with Greater Manchester, which will see a host of powers for health, transport and planning handed to the region. Burnham is staying in the shadow Cabinet for now but, as he weighs up several approaches from local MPs, here are five reasons to stand for the mayoralty and five more […]

    Corbyn: We are fighting inequality and forcing the Tories into u-turns

    Jeremy Corbyn and his senior allies have launched a fightback after Labour failed to make a breakthrough in English local elections and suffered another meltdown in Scotland. Corbyn delivered an impassioned speech in Sheffield, where he attacked the Tories over their failure to deal with the steel crisis, condemned the running down of the NHS and challenged David Cameron to tackle tax avoidance. The Labour leader was in Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough to congratulate Gill Furniss (above), one of two new Labour […]
