    The housing crisis in London is holding back Labour’s young activists

    For most young people, living in the capital means living in precarious housing. Sky-high living costs, short-term contracts and landlords who jump at every opportunity to increase rent make it impossible for many to settle into a home or neighbourhood permanently, let alone live by themselves. Since coming to London four years ago, I have moved seven times and been a member of five Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs). I started off my involvement with Labour in my local CLP in […]

    Our care sector is in crisis and crying out for urgent help

    Of all the dominant industries in Britain today, the care sector is possibly the most notorious for low pay, zero-hour contracts, lack of worker representation, and a 40-year legacy of privatisation that has proved catastrophic. With these conditions, it is little wonder staff turnover is so high.

    Compromises are being made, but Labour’s antisemitism row is ongoing

    As another week of summer draws to a close, there is still no end in sight for Labour’s antisemitism rows.

    Manuel Cortes: Brexit? No pasarán!

    The growing working-class disillusionment with Brexit can no longer be dismissed as a figment of the imagination of the 48%. Last weekend’s Hope not Hate and Best for Britain poll showed 112 parliamentary constituencies who voted Leave would now prefer to Remain. And so the alt-right’s British pet project finds itself facing a potentially serious threat from voters in Labour heartlands, who are now rising sharply and decisively against Brexit. Anger is visibly growing amongst working people at the disinformation […]

    Labour activists launch Kate Hoey for Tory leader campaign

    Labour activists have launched a campaign urging Brexiteer rebel Kate Hoey to run for leader of the Conservative Party. Party members involved with the campaign point out that Hoey has gone against the Labour Party line on several issues, from Brexit to fox hunting and grammar schools. The newly set up website Hoey for Leader sarcastically praises the Labour MP’s “brave leadership and loyalty to the Conservative Party whip”. The faux campaign comes on the back of a unanimous vote by Vauxhall Labour last month in […]
