    According to the Guardian the Labour Party might well be on the verge of making a historic mistake of its own. It seems that Labour will actually be voting to SUPPORT Iain Duncan Smith and the DWP’s emergency legislation to PREVENT benefit claimants UNLAWFULLY stripped of benefits, in some case for six months, for legitimately and legally refusing to participate on flaky workfare schemes, from claiming monies UNLAWFULLY denied to them by the DWP, a very serious situation indeed leaving many of the affected with no income whatsoever for long periods.

    Let me just write that out again (because I can hardly believe the story myself): The Guardian newspaper claims that the Labour Party, despite opposing the the benefit cap and bedroom tax et al, WILL be voting for a piece of retrospective, disgraceful, and shabby legislation, introduced by that delusional faker IAIN DUNCAN SMITH, expressly to prevent benefit claimant from being reimbursed in respect to money UNLAWFULLY denied to them by the DWP.

    If this is true it is a very sad day for Labour and for British justice. It also make you wonder just what Labour might have in store for benefit claimants if the Party is ever returned to office if this is its attitude towards the innocent now.

    The EU referendum showed that UKIP is now the biggest threat to Labour

    For a long time now commentators and Labour figures have regularly remarked on the growing cultural and political distance between the Labour Party and the core Labour vote, particularly outside London. This fact was clearly demonstrated in the EU referendum, where Labour heartlands overwhelmingly rejected Labour’s stance on EU membership and all things associated with it.  This should serve as an immediate and urgent wake up call to the Labour Party. During the referendum campaign I served as General Secretary of […]

    Owen Smith: Half of the great offices of state must be filled by women

    Owen Smith will today pledge to hand two of the top four jobs in shadow Cabinet and then Government to women as he launches a campaign to tackle gender inequality. The leadership candidate says half of the so-called great offices of state – leader/prime minister, foreign secretary, chancellor and home secretary – will be filled by women as he aims to tap into Labour’s history of fighting sexual discrimination. Smith’s speech comes two days after Jeremy Corbyn used the formal launch […]

    Senior Labour figures air fresh concerns over abuse in the party

    A fresh row has broken out over the scale of abuse and intimidation in the Labour Party, as Owen Smith claimed Jeremy Corbyn must “take more responsibility” for the concerns that have led to the suspension of most constituency Labour Party (CLP) meetings across the country. Leadership challenger Smith has claimed that the level of “abuse, misogyny and anti-Semitism” in the party has risen since Corbyn’s victory last September. His intervention comes after Angela Eagle suspended surgeries in her constituency […]
