    Labour is on a roll – so let’s abandon the old divisions and work together for victory

    There are many lessons to be learned from the last general election and the dust hasn’t settled yet. After promising “strong and stable” leadership, Theresa May’s minority government is delivering anything but, as it depends on the DUP for its survival at a huge financial cost and the risk of undermining the Good Friday Agreement. One lesson for Labour is that it should look forward, not back. Since he was elected party leader, the media have spent far more time focusing on various coups against […]

    Momentum: We’re ready for the next election with our new campaign launch

    Momentum is launching a fresh general election campaign today, in preparation for a snap vote. Many political analysts suspect that a fresh vote could be called sooner than five years because of the absence of an outright majority in this parliament, and no clear coalitions, with the Tories sealing only a confidence and supply arrangement with the DUP — a deal that costs £1bn in boosts for the Northern Irish budget. The Corbynista organisation, which grew out of Jeremy Corbyn’s first leadership campaign, campaigned […]

    Dhanda: Heathrow expansion is crucial to the Labour message on jobs and prosperity

    Feverish political speculation is rife at the moment, but one piece of conjecture really caught my eye last week. It was in the Daily Mail and reportedly came from a ‘senior Conservative source’. The report suggested that although the expansion of Heathrow Airport was backed by the independent Airports Commission, is supported by the government, has been through a public consultation and received support in Conservative, Labour, SNP and DUP manifestos at the general election — it  may still be blocked. So […]

    Emergency services cuts make us less safe — let’s get rid of the pay cap, says Corbyn

    Labour will table an amendment to the Queen’s Speech to demand an end to the 1% public sector pay cap. The amendment, which will be voted on today, is described by the party as a “test case” for this parliament’s approach to austerity. Jeremy Corbyn said “You can’t have safety and security on the cheap”, and that emergency services “deserve” a pay rise given their hard work, particularly in the face of recent events in Britain. “It is plain to see […]

    Dugdale: The general election sent a clear message — get on with the day job, Nicola

    The general election results sent Nicola Sturgeon a clear message: get back to the day job. But her definition of the ‘day job’ means that her SNP government has, in the past few days alone, unveiled plans to cut the tax levied on air travel — which benefits the wealthy the most — and lifted Labour’s decade-old ban on cutting the tails off puppy dogs. Yesterday, Sturgeon refused to listen to concerns from staff and experts and forced through a vote […]
