Until the party are able to present to the electorate a coherent, attractive and gaffe-free plan, they are in serious danger of returning to the political wilderness. The current landscape is being shaped almost solely by an ascendant Conservative Party, leaving Nuttall with a lot of work to do if he is to stop his party from descending into irrelevance.
This week's Commons People sees the team wondering if Labour has gone too far with its campaigns on the NHS, after saying "babies will die" if the Tories win in Copeland. Theresa May is facing trouble from her backbenchers over business rates, and is also under scrutiny over what she knew about former Guantanamo Bay detainee who was awarded £1million compensation before becoming a suicide bomber in Iraq. There is the usual amazing quiz - no, seriously - and the crucial In Case You Missed It.
If the Prime Minister respects the will of the people she will call an end to the partisan manoeuvring by some of her MPs. Mr Speaker has my full support and that of my Labour colleagues. We are ready to defend him because his modernising agenda is right for Westminster and right for the country.
The past week or so in Copeland has seen a Labour campaign that has made me angry and sad in equal measure. To see a mainstream political party - a party I respected - run a campaign quoting from unnamed midwifes saying 'mothers will die, babies will die, babies will be brain damaged' is simply disgusting.
Disabled people often face a lack of representation in media, art and culture, despite the fact that there are over 11million people with disabilities or long term illnesses in the UK alone. This is something that we all have the power to change.
When a musician like Madonna jokes about blowing up the White House, it only serves to crowd out the real and substantive criticisms of Trump. When he steps out of line, Trump needs to be challenged with facts and reason, not incoherent wailing or malicious threats. In an age where politicians must be incredibly careful about what they say and how they say it, famous celebrities should take similar care when they preach to us on political issues of which they might only have a limited understanding.
Doubtless both the 'Remainers and Brexiteers' will ignore the very real issues stated above while, if asked to comment, the Home Office will produce its usual bland spin along the lines of; 'the Home Office is committed to strong borders and we are confident we have the resources to cope with all eventualities post Brexit.'
As a London MP, I see the consequences of those failures every week in my surgeries. Young people forced to live in their parent's home until well into their 30s, couples renting in the private sector and struggling to save for a deposit, and families living in overcrowded conditions. Worst of all, there are far too many people who can't find anywhere to live at all. They need our help, and that's the purpose of the Housing White Paper we have published today.
What matters most to Sadiq Khan? Is his primary motivation as London Mayor to leave a lasting, positive legacy? Or is his real focus to gain short-term popularity and establish a rival powerbase within the Labour Party to the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn? Does he wish to serve London for 8 years as his two predecessors did, or is he planning to cut and run after 4 years?
The internet is one of our greatest inventions - a powerful tool that children and young people can use to learn, to express themselves and explore the world around them. However, protecting them from the risks they might face online or on their phones is vital. You wouldn't let your child go off to meet a stranger or put themselves in a risky situation - and the same rules apply to the online world. Some children are visiting adult chatrooms, viewing inappropriate content and in some cases being bullied by peers or even - in extreme situations - radicalised, and we need to protect them from these risks.

Jeremy Corbyn wants this government to listen to his concerns regarding "jobs, security, economic rights, justice", yes indeed. Now put the maximum pressure on the government by allowing your MPs to have a free vote on this vital issue that will shape Britain's future for generations to come.
Ultimately, it does not make sense that the Tory leadership does not feel the need to concentrate its funding in social care, bearing the current NHS crisis in mind. Regardless of the rising costs, what could possibly be more important than financing the support structures for the health and wellbeing of members of the British public?
The Conservatives have no-one to blame for their record on homelessness but themselves. To turn the tide and end the national scandal of rough sleeping, will once again take a Labour government. After seven years of failure, Ministers are set to relaunch their housing policy with a new white paper. Ending the scandal of homelessness must be at the heart of it.
The African Union Commission will be electing its next Chairperson at the end of January. This is an influential position, and whoever assumes it will play a major role in the direction the continent takes in the coming years - and in selecting which issues to prioritize.
