    Danielle Rowley: This is why Michael Gove’s speech made me angry

    During this week’s House of Commons debate on the motion of no confidence in the government, I got extremely angry listening to Michael Gove’s speech. While he was giving the government’s official response to the debate, I raised a point of order to challenge some of the harmful rhetoric that was being used. This rhetoric was clearly designed to whip up fear and to polarise – something that is very dangerous in the current climate. The motion we were meant […]

    Roy Kennedy: Here’s what we must add to the Offensive Weapons Bill

    The Offensive Weapons Bill is currently making its way through parliament, with provisions to restrict the sale of corrosive substances, knives and firearms.

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. We’ve got a new Brexit vote date: 29th January. But there’s no sign of a new Brexit plan from Theresa May, who engaged in cross-party talks yesterday that appeared to be purely performative. Jeremy Corbyn did his best to get some movement going. As discussed in yesterday’s email, the opposition leader has decided to snub substantive Brexit talks until ‘no deal’ is ruled out. In his Hastings speech, he told […]

    Alf Dubs: We cannot allow the far right to exploit refugee and migration issues here

    By any standards, the UK’s current immigration and refugee policies are failing. We don’t know how, or even if, Brexit will happen. But in any event, the British government could be doing more to assist the world’s refugees and should show leadership on the issue beyond our possible exit from the European Union.   Of all refugees, children are the most vulnerable to violence and exploitation.
