    It’s time for Labour to back a people’s vote. The stakes have never been higher

    Despite the daily updates, the major distinction of Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations is that there has been precisely no change since December 2017. The agreement made then to go to transition and to accept the Irish border backstop was the last real progress, and even that has been largely clawed back by May in the nine months since. Caught between the EU’s unwillingness to compromise the single market and the DUP’s refusal to accept a border in the Irish Sea, […]

    10 days paid leave for domestic violence victims – Dawn Butler’s full speech

    Below is the full speech given by Dawn Butler, Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, at Labour Party Women’s Conference today. Good morning conference. What a year it’s been for us. Sadly, we have lost the wonderful Tessa Jowell. But in her memory we have marched in our thousands against Trump, said enough is enough to sexual harassment, fought for the reproductive rights of women in Northern Ireland, called for an end to period poverty. And all this – in the centenary year […]

    Joe Anderson: If we stay united, Labour can govern for a generation

    As I look out of my office window onto the iconic Liverpool waterfront, all is calm and bright. In five days’ time, as we gather few hundred yards down the dockside for the Labour Party conference, I hope things remain just as pleasant. Speculation about the party’s future continues to spill forth from Westminster and television studios, with accusation and counter-accusation about the state of the party. The political has become personal. Bone grinds against bone. Bad faith abounds. Having […]

    French radical Jean-Luc Mélenchon should be welcomed by Labour activists

    Next week’s The World Transformed conference will play host to France’s most popular political leader, France Insoumise’s Jean-Luc Mélenchon. Winning seven million votes in last year’s presidential election, the radical left-winger is today at the forefront of the revolt against Emmanuel Macron’s crisis-wracked government. Mélenchon’s major breakthrough came in the 2017 contest, when he was under two points shy of beating Marine Le Pen into the second round.
