    Heidi Alexander: 17,000 people have spoken out – Labour must consult members on Brexit

    I have been a Labour Party member for most of my adult life and there is one thing I know for sure: this party has never shirked away from the most important challenges facing our country. On the contrary, we are the ones who drive the national conversation forward. Our party leads, other parties follow. Yet this weekend, when Labour Party delegates to the National Policy Forum (NPF) convene in Leeds, they will effectively talk about Brexit for just two […]

    The Tory government designed devolution deals to devolve blame for austerity

    Last weekend I ran London Young Labour’s Annual General Meeting as the outgoing Chair. It was a privilege to spend the past year leading the largest Young Labour group in the country and working with so many incredible young socialists. What I didn’t expect to receive, as I coordinated the AGM throughout the day, was nearly 1,000 tweets from right-wing commentators, Tory politicians, UKIP MEPs and far-right trolls. Early in the morning I tweeted about accessibility arrangements that had been […]

    Teacher backed by Momentum wins tightly contested selection in Wimbledon

    A local activist and teacher backed by Momentum has been selected as Labour’s parliamentary candidate in Wimbledon. Yesterday Jackie Schneider won 154 votes at the hustings, compared to Eleanor Harrison’s 147. Schneider will fight the key seat at the next general election, now considered a marginal after sitting Conservative MP Stephen Hammond’s majority was reduced to 5,622 in June. I’ve never felt more involved in a political process.
