    Kevin Brennan: The Tories face a creative test in Wednesday’s Budget

    This is part of a series of articles in the run-up to the Budget on Wednesday. The creative industries are one of the great British economic success stories. We’re not only a world leader in culture and creative output, our creative businesses are a huge economic driver that contribute £87bn to the economy, incidentally more than either car manufacturing or aerospace, and employ two million people.

    Left-wing slate tops table for elections to Labour’s ruling national executive

    The Momentum-backed slate for elections to Labour’s ruling body received a major boost today when it scored a decisive victory in nominations by local parties. Candidates from the group, which includes Momentum founding chair Jon Lansman, each racked up around twice the number of nominations as their rivals from the centre-left tradition, according to initial estimates following last night’s deadline for constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) to register their support. Three new reps will be elected to the national executive committee […]

    Labour drama poses centre-ground lessons that must be heard beyond the theatre

    “I got involved in politics to find the vaccine not put plasters on problems” says the fictional New Labour MP who is the central character in James Graham’s latest play. Labour of Love stars Martin Freeman and Tamsin Greig and starts with the 2017 election.
