    Young European Socialists to UK Labour’s young activists: “We’ve missed you!”

    Earlier this month, more than thirty delegates from Labour Students, the Young Fabians and Rainbow Rose took part in the annual Young European Socialist (“YES”) Summer Camp 2018. This was the largest UK delegation in living memory, with members from across the Labour movement joining our European comrades. Historically, Labour has been reluctant to participate in YES events. To produce such a show of strength this year was striking, and perhaps reflected a desire to engage with the left across […]

    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 […]

    Forget factions in Labour’s NEC elections – vote for pro-EU candidates

    I’ll admit I rather enjoy Labour’s NEC elections. It offers the membership of the Labour Party an opportunity to offer its view on the direction of our movement: a genuine chance to influence the highest decision-making body in our party. But I do have a genuine concern. This year’s NEC elections are in danger – as they are most years – of being seen through the prism only of Labour’s leadership. Essentially, it’s a proxy battle between pro- and anti-Corbyn factions. […]

    Wes Streeting: Until we solve our antisemitism problem, we don’t deserve to win

    At Monday’s meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party, I warned that three things would happen should the NEC fail to adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism including the full list of examples. 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 […]
