Cameron making ‘historic mistake’ on press regulation, says Miliband

    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.

    How would an EU referendum pledge affect Labour’s support?

    A poll conducted for the Daily Mirror by ComRes has found that most Labour-leaning voters aren’t bothered whether or not the party pledges to have an EU referendum. The poll saw 2,000 Labour-leaning people asked how the party’s stance on an EU referendum would affect their voting intention. 13% said it would make them more likely to vote Labour, while 7% said they would be less likely to do so. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most people (67%) said that an EU referendum […]

    Labour’s London Primary must be as accessible as possible

    The two-party system is on the way out. If there is a political lesson from the last two months, then that is it. The SNP’s popularity in Scotland and the rising stock of UKIP south of the border tell a clear story of people fed up with politics as usual. They are sick of the tribalism, bored of the politicking, tired of trying to work out who stands for what. They want something different: to be treated honestly, listened to, […]

    “An important contribution to the immigration debate”? The poisonous rhetoric of Cameron’s Lords nominee

    Andrew Green has been nominated by David Cameron to be a cross-bench peer in the House of Lords. Previously an ambassador to Syria and Saudi Arabia, and former Chairperson of Medical Aid for Palestinians – it would seem that Green is a relatively uninteresting appointment. That is, until you spot the last (and current) job on his CV: founding chairperson of MigrationWatch. MigrationWatch describes itself as an ‘independent and non-political think tank‘. But the  group – which on its website declares […]

    The Government should listen to the Commons on recognising Palestine

    The vote last week by the House of Commons in favour of the recognition of Palestinian statehood was an historic one. True, it has no immediate impact on UK Government policy. But it’s symbolic and long term significance should not be underestimated. Sometimes symbols matter. Its significance has certainly not been lost in Palestine and Israel itself, where it has received considerable attention, not least because of Britain’s historic role in the region. Although the Conservative/Lib Dem Government, much to […]

    Labour must embrace Proportional Representation

    Britain no longer has a natural party of government. Yesterdays Ashcroft poll giving Labour and the Tories a combined vote share of 59% is an all time record low for the two main parties. In 1951 they secured 98% of the vote between them. Its been downhill ever since. Why and what does it mean for Labour and the future of our politics? Two earthquakes have transformed the political landscape since the era in which only two tribes went to […]
