    A ‘people’s vote’ has no parliamentary roadmap. Corbyn is right not to back it

    When the Labour leadership opted not to table a no confidence motion earlier this week, it felt like a good decision at the time given the slim prospect of a majority in the House. With the benefit of hindsight, following Theresa May’s Pyrrhic victory in the internal Tory vote of confidence, Jeremy Corbyn’s strategy is vindicated further. But the other opposition parties, and some members of the Labour movement, feel that a no confidence motion cannot ever succeed. The sooner […]

    Rupa Huq: Don’t let Tory sound and fury conceal the real victims of Brexit

    With all the chaos and infighting of the Tory Brexit tribes, it is tempting for Labour folk to just sit back and watch the spectacle unfold. The mess over the pulled meaningful vote and the failed but damaging ERG coup has provided quite a sideshow to the debate. But while we have all been appalled by the antics of the Conservative Party, our black and ethnic minority communities have particular reason for concern. Most of us will have seen the […]

    EU unimpressed by May while Corbyn waits for perfect time to strike

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. Theresa May’s visit to Brussels has actually made her deal less likely to pass, if that is even possible.

Extraordinarily, it seems May is still asking the EU for suggestions rather than laying down her […]

    Shelly Asquith: 10 Christmas gifts for trade union members

    A look at the weird and wonderful world of trade union merchandise has been a long time coming. I am continually intrigued by some of the random items Labour’s affiliates emblazon with their logos. Who curates the online stores? Who buys the tat? And what better time to take a look than in the run up to Christmas? Surely many a LabourList reader is just itching to get their mitts on these stocking fillers… I did some browsing so you […]

    Democratising policy, a new fundraising approach and community organising – CLP reps NEC report

    The November meeting of Labour’s NEC is usually an ‘away day’ and an opportunity for reflection on how the NEC operates, its terms of reference and objectives. Although there were some changes for the better last year, constituency representatives were keen to make further progress and ensure the NEC is democratic and transparent. Unfortunately, just as with the party’s democracy review, we were disappointed by the speed and breadth of changes. But in the middle of the government’s latest Brexit […]
