    Westminster has failed the people of Northern Ireland

    Northern Ireland continues to make headlines these days, and I have become the unofficial Northern Ireland correspondent to my friends and colleagues who are keen to understand more about that neglected part of the United Kingdom. Despite its recent prominence, however, I continue to be frustrated by the widespread lack of understanding, and often the lack of will to understand.

    Chris Williamson denies targeting Labour MPs for deselection

    Chris Williamson has accused fellow Labour MP Barry Sheerman of “trying to sow divisions” within the Labour Party by publicly criticising his democracy roadshow, which advocates mandatory reselection of Labour MPs.

The Shadow Chancellor has called on the government to immediately halt all further outsourcing of government contracts and privatisations until an investigation takes place into why they are failing so badly. McDonnell’s intervention follows the government’s emergency takeover of HMP Birmingham. The prison, which was being run by G4S until yesterday, was found to have fallen into a “state […]

    Universal basic income can directly reduce work-related stress

    John McDonnell has announced that Labour may include a trial of Universal Basic Income (UBI) in the next Labour Party Manifesto. UBI – state provision of unconditional monthly stipends to all adult citizens – has been justified on myriad grounds: citizenship, welfare reform, growth. However, its biggest and, as yet, unexplored contribution may be to physical health and it is essential that any trial is able to measure that effect in very specific ways. Some of our research on UBI took place through an […]
