Tory Austerity Is Failing - Real Change Is Needed

Every week the Tories stay in power means more people face wage cuts, deeper inequality and higher levels of poverty. So it's more vital than ever to keep hitting the Labour doorstep and build workplace and community opposition to failed austerity.

Voting Against the Whip on the Welfare Bill Was a Hard Decision, But the Right One

The instruction of the whip was to abstain, and I'm still yet to hear a strong argument as to why that would have been the right way to vote. One of the arguments put to me by a whip was we would be voting against at third reading, so it was ok to abstain at second reading last night. If we opposed the bill then why not simply vote against it? For me Labour stands with the many who work hard in work, out of work, and in their own businesses to ensure that they, and their families, have a roof over their heads, food on the table, and that their kids can go on the school trips.
