    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.

    Burnham says he’ll turn down 10% pay rise for MPs

    Andy Burnham has announced that he won’t accept the 10% pay rise MPs are expected to receive. He has said he would either turn down or give away the extra £6,700 the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) has recommended that MPs receive. Burnham made this announcement on Twitter: Burnham is one of four people standing to be Labour’s next leader. This announcement will undoubtedly put pressure on the three others standing – Yvette Cooper, Mary Creagh and Liz Kendall – to do […]

    Kezia Dugdale has said that Scottish Labour made a serious error in not focussing on the role Scottish Parliament – Holyrood – plays in people’s everyday life. Dudgale, who is one of two people to announce they’re standing to be Scottish Labour leader, argued that her party failed to focus “front and centre on the role of Scottish parliament.” She also said that she agreed with “much if not all” of former Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont’s recent comments. Earlier […]

    The road less travelled and the one that can make the difference

      I doubt I am alone in how I was feeling one night about three years ago. Dissatisfied with the way our city was being run by a part time Mayor who spent most of his time devising plans for his return to Westminster, I did not feel that there was any meaningful alternative on offer. Of course I wanted to see a Labour Mayor, but, like many others, I wanted something fresh, new and authentic; far from the empty […]

    The progressive majority myth is over – you need Tory votes to win

    “The public is never wrong. We lose elections because we deserve to.” Just as mass each Sunday begins with the mea culpa, to force the congregation to think about the ways in which they could be better, perhaps it would be wise to begin every Labour Party meeting with these words from Alan Johnson this week. I would suggest carving the quote in stone, but that might suggest that lessons have not been learned. In the leadership contest, the demands for […]
