    The cruelty of universal credit represents how the Tories betrayed the north

    The Tory government has failed the north of England on transport links, policing, health, industrial innovation and the environment. Greater Manchester is the epitome of neglect. Despite the Labour Party’s warnings, the government’s apathy and complacency towards everyday problems continued in the Budget. Labour has often pointed out the inefficiency and the slow pace of the promised devolution in core policy areas.

    Sadiq Khan: Local election campaign starts now – so let there be no complacency

    The local elections in just under five months times are a massive opportunity for Labour in London. We are setting our sights high – not just keeping the councils we currently hold but aiming to make major inroads into Tory strongholds in London and take control of even more councils across the capital.  Following our fantastic results in London at the general election in June, we can honestly say that there is now no corner of London where Labour can’t win.   Our aim is to elect a raft of new […]
