    Factional slates for Labour’s NCC and the Tory MP who wouldn’t vote Conservative

    Sign up to LabourList’s morning email for everything Labour, every weekday morning. Labour’s latest internal election, concerning six new places on the national constitutional committee (NCC), has prompted many party members to ask: why are there factional slates for a quasi-judicial body? You would think the NCC candidates should put factional allegiances to one side – the committee does, after all, have the power to discipline and even expel activists. On LabourList today, councillor Joshua Garfield touches on this question and also […]

    Rachel Reeves: To win in Yorkshire and England, Labour needs a radical plan for the whole country

    Before the general election, the outlook looked gloomy for Labour in Yorkshire. Seats like Wakefield, Dewsbury and Halifax seemed bound to change hands, with expectations of a great migration of voters from Ukip to the Conservatives eradicating narrow Labour majorities in Yorkshire towns. Thanks to the hard work of local MPs, a dysfunctional Tory campaign and the resonance of a challenge to an economic model that has failed communities up and down the country, Labour outperformed expectations. We not only […]

    Keith Dibble: Why I’m standing for Labour’s NCC

    Never, in my 34 years as a Labour councillor, have I seen Labour’s internal disciplinary procedures come under such scrutiny. The failure to adequately deal with serious cases of misconduct, in particular antisemitic abuse amongst members, has badly damaged the Labour Party’s reputation and once again inflamed tensions within the party. Many Labour members will have been aware of individual cases dragging on for months or even years. Rumours of some members allegedly being auto-excluded for innocuous views on their […]

    In Labour’s latest internal election, Momentum missed the chance to stand for something

    Squabbles have emerged over internal slates for Labour’s NCC, an apolitical body tasked with quasi-judicial deliberation on internal complaints procedures. Momentum just squandered an opportunity to stand tall and cement themselves as the voice of Labour’s forward-thinking and outward-looking progressive left, fit for a 21st-century party membership. Why have they given in to the demands of the CLPD, why are JVL vying for influence on the NCC, and why are we persistently flooded with new acronyms to learn? Very few are […]

  • Europe Featured News Seats and Selections Corbyn: “The Tories won’t use Brexit to rebuild Britain”

    Corbyn: “The Tories won’t use Brexit to rebuild Britain”

    The Tory government isn’t going to use Brexit to rebuild Britain, Jeremy Corbyn will warn voters today on a whistlestop tour of three Leave-voting constituencies in the East Midlands. Visiting North East Derbyshire, Ashfield and Bolsover, the Labour leader will express understanding of the reasons for which people voted to leave the EU. During the 2016 referendum campaign, Corbyn famously gave the EU a “seven out of ten” approval rating. Although the remark infuriated some Remainers, fuelling criticism that the lifelong Eurosceptic wasn’t doing […]
