Labour Party conference will be returning to Liverpool in 2016 and 2018, it has been announced today. That means the venues for the next few years will be:

2013 – Brighton

2014 – Manchester

2015 – Brighton

2016 – Liverpool

2017 – TBC

2018 – Liverpool

Announcing the venues, General Secretary Iain McNicol said:

“We are delighted to be able to confirm that we will be holding the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool in 2016 and 2018. 

“Liverpool is one of our great British cities and we had a wonderful conference there in 2011. ACC Liverpool is a first class venue for conference and we look forward to returning to the city.”

    Great move, great city.

      Crap football teams though.

      • Dave Postles

        You obviously reject Bill Shankley’s observation that there are 2 great football teams in Liverpool: Liverpool and Liverpool reserves.

    But the real question is where will we hold the karaoke!

    • AlanGiles

      Yes. That will probably be the only event that the particpants will enjoy. The rest of the time they will be too scared to say anything remotely socialist for fear of upsetting the tabloid press, Strivers, and Mr and Mrs Middle England.
      Still no word about the Hammond proposal for further welfare cuts to pay for defence from anybody at the top of Labour. They come over as weak as water.

        Could I ask the loyalist who voted this down whether or not he thinks that the public have a right to know:

        1) Does Labour agree with Hammond’s proposal

        2) Does Labour disagree with Hammond’s proposal
        or

        3) Don’t know

        If the answer is 2 why is it that Labour does’nt have the courage to say so clearly and plainly?

    I think it would be politically expedient to hold one in Scotland.

    PMQs verdict: No apology is good enough. Freud must go, and he must go today

    PMQs returns, and the Labour Party had an ambush waiting for Cameron. A recording from Lord Freud – the despicable welfare minister – saying that disabled people don’t deserve the full minimum wage (and suggesting that they might be paid £2 an hour) dropped only moments before PMQs. Ed Miliband – throat scratching as he delivered his lines without the aid of his voice – croaked as he spoke to the Commons. Yet the strained voice, painful as it sounded, actually seemed […]

    Lord Freud’s apology “not the end of the matter”, say Labour

    Lord Freud has apologised for his comments suggesting that disabled people are “not worth” the minimum wage. After Miliband raised the comments at PMQs today, the minister in charge of welfare reform, which includes the introduction of the Bedroom Tax, issued a retraction: “I would like to offer a full and unreserved apology. I was foolish to accept the premise of the question. To be clear, all disabled people should be paid at least the minimum wage, without exception, and […]

    Sadiq Khan has been given a new role in Labour’s election campaign, running a unit charged with dealing with the threat from the Green Party over the next seven months. The New Statesman’s George Eaton reveals that Khan has been handed the job by election co-ordinator Douglas Alexander. The Tooting MP’s previous stint as chair of Liberty, the civil liberties campaign organisation, means he is widely considered as well-placed to recapture socially liberal voters lost during the New Labour years.

    David Cameron’s government: some disabled people are “not worth the full wage” 

    David Cameron’s welfare supremo has advocated treating those most in need differently by paying them below the national minimum wage. Lord David Freud, speaking at a fringe event at  Conservative Party Conference, said he thought there was “a group” of disabled people who are “not worth the full wage”. Lord Freud has exposed a face of the Conservative Party which sees the vulnerable as runners up, those in need as undeserving, and the minimum wage as applying just to a few of […]
