2014 – Manchester

2015 – Brighton

2016 – Liverpool

2017 – TBC

2018 – Liverpool

    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.

    Labour can change the false narrative with a reality check

    A false narrative has developed about Labour that must be rejected comprehensively by a party aiming to govern in six months. It claims that Labour has become alienated from virtually the entire electorate. Our response to date has been ineffective. Here are some suggestions for how we may succeed in future. Franklin D. Roosevelt said: “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. We should take heed and refuse to be cowed by something as illusory as a […]

    Labour consider selling off central London buildings to help pay off debts

    The Labour leadership say they would consider selling off QEII Conference Centre and the Civil Service Club – alongside two other buildings in London – to help pay off the country’s debt. They say they selling off these government-owned buildings could raise up to £100m, and would be part of a “fairer way” of reducing the deficit. Alongside selling off the QEII conference centre and the Civil Service Club, Labour are also thinking about selling Marlborough House, which is near Buckingham […]

    Neil Findlay MSP, who is running to be leader of the Scottish Labour Party, is calling on the Labour Party to clarify what information will be given to members with Leadership ballot papers. At the moment it looks as though the booklet with candidate statements in it only lists the nominations each candidate received from Parliamentarians and not from Constituency Labour Parties, trade Unions or socialist societies. In response to this, Findlay has released the following statement: “Over the last […]

    It’s Ukip that offends working class sentiment

    After this week’s Twitter row at the Rochester by-election, I am using my keynote speech to the Labour East Regional Conference today to say that it is UKIP who truly offends working class sentiment and represents a party which is fundamentally un-British. Today I am lucky to serve as a Euro MP but, like many in our movement, I grew up on a council estate living in poverty, so don’t need any lectures from UKIP about snobbery. First, we can’t counter UKIP […]
