    As a newly qualified teacher, here’s why I’m marching against school cuts today

    With Theresa May’s government in utter chaos, the prospect of a Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour government that could tackle the education crisis is within reach. Many questioned my choice to train as an English teacher in the current educational climate: devastating cuts, hours that ruin many teachers’ relationships, a semi-privatised system in which accountability is non-existent in many areas of the country… the list could go on. In my first term as a newly qualified teacher (NQT), I have witnessed first-hand […]

Professor Philip Alston estimates that 14 million – a […]

    Diane Abbott: Trump ran on an anti-abortion, anti-immigration platform. Then he lost the mid-terms

    As the Tory crisis rumbles on, a general election could be on the cards. It is worth looking, then, at the lessons of the recent American mid-term elections. The first thing to say is that, despite the spin, Donald Trump actually lost the midterm elections. He ran on an anti-abortion and anti-immigrant ticket. One of his own supporters called it a platform of “Kavanaugh and caravan”. That he lost the popular vote by some margin tells us something quite encouraging […]

    Corbyn sets out Labour’s plans for a “jobs-first” Brexit

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. Jeremy Corbyn will set out Labour’s alternative plan for a ‘jobs-first’ Brexit this afternoon, when he addresses British businesses at the CBI annual conference. Following Theresa May’s speech at 11.10am, the Labour leader is due to make his own pitch at 4.45pm and blast the Prime Minister’s offering as a “botched, worst-of-all-worlds deal” that has left people “anxious and confused” and the country “without a real say”. Instead, […]
