Our Guest Editor for the next few days is…

June 26, 2013 6:00 pm

It doesn’t happen very often, but I’m taking a few days away from the site – I’ll be back on Tuesday.

In the meantime the site will be Guest Edited by the fantastic Emma Burnell. A long standing contributor and columnist for LabourList, Emma is well known to LabourList readers as well as those who keep up with her popular Scarlet Standard blog . She will be commissioning pieces from across the Labour movement and I hope bringing a different flavour to LabourList over the next few days. You can contact her here.

Best of luck to Emma – and see you next week

    Why Vote Labour: An extract

We have been through tough times over the past few […]

    A day in Dundee – “my beloved rebel”

    Dundee has a special place in my heart; it’s where I was born. Historically famous for its jute, jam and journalism this unique trio forged its reputation as a single minded strong willed maverick kind of place. Raised in a politically active family, the DNA runs deep, I’ve maintained a lifelong interest in the political landscape of that community, built beneath an extinct volcano, The Law. Its modern manifestation as the City of Discovery is a homage to its proud […]

    Was the referendum result good for the union, but bad for Labour?

    Was this the high water mark of secessionist sentiment in Scotland? At first it may seem an outlandish idea. Scottish Nationalism has been a riding tide for over thirty years – from fringe cause, to Westminster representation, to a Scottish parliament, minority government and then majority government. But something also broke in the movement this week. The SNP dominated Yes campaign ran to a large extent on the idea that if Scotland voted for independence, the hated Tories would never […]

    Gordon Brown rules out return to frontline politics

    After his spectacular return to prominence in the final weeks of the referendum campaign – with many crediting his interventions as crucial in securing a final swing towards the No campaign – rumours began to circulate that Gordon Brown might make a more permanent return to frontline politics. His barnstorming speech on Wednesday in particular reminded many in the Labour Party of what they once admired so much in the former PM. Yet today – as he spoke publicly about […]
