    Melanie Onn: Let’s harness the passion of children to help change the world

    Kids care. We should harness that. Last year one of my local schools produced a film that reached the finals of a national competition. The child film makers asked other children what they liked about their town, what they enjoyed, what they thought was good. The children gave great answers. They liked their school, enjoyed the open spaces, clubs and sports, shops and McDonalds. Then they were asked what they thought could be better. They said they wanted more play times, didn’t like bullies, wanted […]

    Andy Burnham: I’ll reverse the Tory crisis in Manchester’s NHS

    Andy Burnham has pledged to reverse the Tory “crisis” in Greater Manchester’s NHS as he promises to introduce a nursing bursary for the city. The shadow home secretary attacked Conservative Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt in a letter for the huge waiting times and worrying drop in standards – while health services in the area fell into greater financial difficulties. He went on to demand the Government “clear up its own mess” before the city’s NHS services were made the responsibility […]

Barry Gardiner, the Shadow Energy spokesperson, has described the deal as “absolute chaos” and demanded the Tories “seriously review it”, after it was revealed that the Government were throwing the whole deal into doubt just hours before the contract was due to be signed with French energy firm EDF. Gardiner said that “EDF have mismanaged the Hinkley project; but the Government has […]

    Andrew Harrop: Labour’s recovery starts with stripping power from Britain’s political and economic elites

    Whoever wins the leadership contest, the centre of gravity of the Labour Party has shifted to the left. Our members, our supporters and our MPs are more left-wing than 10 years or 20 years ago and two unashamed socialists are vying to be leader. This has been our movement’s response to the crisis of capitalism which began in 2007. But the people who we need to vote for Labour, in order to govern again, did not respond in the same […]

    Working people are losing their voice: It’s time to bring democratic reform back into the Labour mainstream

    The vote to leave the European Union was a stark reminder that Labour’s political elites are losing touch with the working class communities the party was founded to represent. Despite the party urging otherwise, the majority of Labour’s heartlands – Britain’s neglected former industrial towns – voted to leave the EU. In many of those places, Labour’s support base has been in decline for some time. There are many explanations for this existential threat to the Labour party. Labour’s inability to address concerns on […]
