    Mike Amesbury: That Esther McVey hasn’t resigned says everything about this Tory government

    Reading the newspapers last weekend, it wasn’t surprising to see more talk of cabinet resignations with reports that Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey was considering her position. In any other political time or scenario, this would have been no surprise, given that the Secretary of State had faced a censure motion for misleading the House of Commons just days earlier. It is indicative of both Theresa May’s lack of authority and this Tory government’s current contempt for process and […]

Firstly, Jeremy Corbyn would be denounced as an antisemite leading an antisemitic party. Secondly, Labour MPs like me would be accused of whipping up a row on antisemitism to undermine Jeremy Corbyn. Thirdly, the Jewish community would experience an antisemitic backlash by those accusing […]

    Sheila from Bolton West Constituency Labour Party is having a bad day. It seems she sent details of the next local party meeting to thousands of Labour members outside of Bolton West… an email for the many, not the few. “The next meeting… will take place on Thursday 26th July starting at 7.30pm at the Brazely Centre, Cedar Avenue, Horwich, BL6 6HT (map attached),” according to Sheila’s helpful notice. Sheila has also sent thousands of members across the country Ann Black’s […]

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. Labourite self-reflection or Tory government chaos? That’s the question I have to answer every morning before I choose a focus for the daily email. And many are saying that’s the question the Labour Party must answer too. This week has seen the government defeated on a key Brexit vote, Anna Soubry call for a ‘unity government’, Boris Johnson give a resignation speech urging the country to ‘save Brexit’, Esther […]
