About Us

LabourList is an independent progressive blog providing a platform for open debate about centre-left issues and the future of the Labour movement.

Although we are a broad umbrella organisation seeking to draw together the many views and factions of the progressive spectrum, we also believe that progressive ends – such as a robust and resolute welfare state, social and educational equality and a fully funded National Health Service, free to all at the point of delivery – can only ultimately be achieved through the continued electoral success of the Labour Party.

    Clegg says the economy is “fixed”. But here’s proof that it isn’t – and from rich to poor, the British people are worse off

    Yesterday, Nick Clegg proclaimed in the Commons that: “We have fixed the economy” Yet today, the Office of National Statistics have released data that proves him wrong. After much crowing last week about wages overtaking inflation for the first time this Parliament, it turns out most people are worse off this year than they were last year. The ONS Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings data shows that average (mean) weekly pay in the year to April 2014 fell by 1.8% after accounting […]

    May backs Labour plan on EAW

    After refusing to allow MPs to vote on the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) last week, Labour moved to offer a full debate and vote on the matter – which will take place tonight. Labour are all for opting into the EAW. But to clarify the Government’s position following the confusion last week, Yvette Cooper, Shadow Home Secretary, wrote an open letter to Theresa May (the full text of which you can find below) asking her to support the motion. May responded […]

    Tuition fees can still be a fair solution to university funding

    Ed Miliband ran for leader supporting the idea of a graduate tax. As leader, he has presented a costed policy for reducing tuition fees to £6,000, as proof the Coalition had not put enough efforts into keeping fees as low as possible. Over the last year, all hints and whispers have pointed to conference season for what the manifesto pledge on Higher Education (HE) funding will be. So why didn’t it turn up? My hunch is that they decided on […]

    Labour MP allegedly received a death threats over Farage NHS video

    Last week, a video from which showed Nigel Farage calling for the privatisation of the NHS resurfaced on the Guardian. Farage was quick to say that he’d just been floating the idea, and it wasn’t Ukip’s policy. But the Labour leadership pointed out how disingenuous this was. Labour MP Ian Austin also criticised the video. And said on Twitter that because he’d voiced his criticism, he had faced a death threat: Despite this, Austin has stood his ground and said […]

    Badly handled immigration can be a problem

    Maya Goodfellow says Labour’s leadership is treading the UKIP-Tory path ‘by accepting that immigration is a problem at all’. This view is clearly shared held by a significant number of party members, so let me give a few reasons why she and they are wrong. Badly handled, immigration can be a problem. A sharp increase in a local population does put additional pressure on public services; the need to house more people can change local areas as, for example, family […]
