    This week has shown Theresa May’s nasty party is ruthless but vulnerable

    This week saw the Conservative Party revert to type as the ‘nasty party’. Forcing Naz Shah MP to vote in a wheelchair clutching a sick bowl on her lap echoed what the Tories did in 1950-51. Facing a Labour government down to a majority of only five, they forced Labour MPs to come to Westminster in ambulances and vote by being pushed on hospital trollies. The Tories smelled power, and won the election of 1951 with a comfortable majority. They are […]

    Mike Gapes: Learn from history – join me on the March for a People’s Vote

    From its very foundation, Labour was established as a people’s party that would give voice to those excluded from power, wealth and opportunity by the elite and entrenched special interests. To create this new party, trade unionists joined with Fabian reformists and social democrats. We were not like the Tories and the Liberals, founded as organisations to support those who were already in parliament. The world has changed fundamentally since our party’s founding conference in 1900. Then only a minority […]
