This week's Conservative Party plan to make some companies disclose how many foreign workers they employ may be controversial. But is a positive step forward for transparency, and could take the wind out of the sails of those peddling racist myths about immigration.
She also believes that she can prevent resentment and division and make sure that no one in this country lives in fear. This is undermined by far right policies such as making firms list foreign workers and "phasing out" foreign doctors by 2025. Also EU residents that are "cards" in our Brexit negotiations will be fearing their future now.
Theresa May opened her Tory conference speech today by saying that when her party came to Birmingham this week, "some big questions were hanging in the air". They still are. In fact, I have even more questions now than I did when she started. Here are ten...
Whether we are left, or right, or centre, those of us interested in a peaceful future for ourselves, our families, and yes, even those we disagree with, should start to stand up against this kind of politics, before it is too late.
I accept that the British people made this choice on 23 June. But on the other hand, as an MP elected to stand up for what I believe in - for social, economic and environmental justice - I find the prospect of Brexit genuinely frightening. It is my belief that Britain would be better off if we stayed in the EU - and that my constituents face real risks of us leaving.
The nauseating Trump/Brexit mashup headline, courtesy of the Daily Star, no doubt had many backwards thinking Brexiteers waving their union jack flags and 'Go Home' placards in obvious joy.
I don't know how long I'm going to be in here before my transplant, but my stay so far really has hardened my resolve to ensuring we defend our NHS with everything we've got. That means defending the services from budget cuts and privatisation. And it means defending the healthworkers who have been treated appallingly, with their pay and pensions slashed, their contracts ripped up and even hints now that foreign doctors won't be welcome in the UK in the future... We really can't say it often or loud enough -- our NHS is very special. The greatest achievement of a time of political optimism, when national pride meant public investment. Our health service is the envy of the world, we can't afford to let the Tories grind it down.
It would be a travesty if these announcements have only been made to pander to a political audience rather than to solve the very real staffing problems within the NHS, or to improve patient care. The government must tackle the root causes of this workforce crisis and the reasons why so many UK-trained doctors are considering leaving the NHS rather than forcing doctors to stay in the health service.
When the practical and economic feasibility of a routine 7-day NHS has been roundly debunked by senior doctors, service providers and analyists, it is only natural to ask how this is going to happen. Maybe, we ought to be thinking a little more naturally ourselves, and prepare for our complementary secretary of state for health to give us a very complementary 7-day routine NHS.
The UK loves an underdog. There is something irresistible about the story of the little guy standing up to the established players and leaving them with a bloody nose, whether it is Henry Cooper putting Muhammad Ali on the mat or the Wallabies trouncing the Kiwis in rugby.
"The central task of the whole Labour party," Corbyn said, "must be to rebuild trust and support to win the next general election." I agree. I just wish he had put a bit more flesh on the bones - and I wish he had told his party activists that they need to start talking much more to former Labour voters in key constituencies and much less to each other.
Would a progressive alliance make much difference? Opponents of the idea argue that, for the Tories to be defeated, most seats need to move from Conservative to Labour, so the aim must be to persuade Conservative areas to switch sides. This is a category error - it looks at seats when it needs to look at votes.
In the heat of the EU referendum campaign leading Leave-supporting ministers (many of whom remain in Theresa May's post-Brexit cabinet) were categorical that regions like the North East would not be financially hit if the UK voted to leave the EU. It is looking ever more uncertain that England's poorer regions will receive their full allocation of funds.
We want a democracy that works for everyone: if we are to achieve this, then the principle of equal-seats, effectively restoring the principle of one-member one-vote, ending historic inequalities in our electoral map, must be delivered by a Conservative government.
On 23 June, in voting to leave the EU, the British electorate initiated a process of far-reaching, largely unpredictable change in Britain's constitutional, legal and commercial arrangements. The legislation that set up the referendum had failed to specify how its result should be handled or interpreted.
The contrast between Theresa May's and David Cameron's styles could be a refreshing change, with serious times calling for more serious leadership. But to really make a success of her time in Downing Street, May has a lot to learn, including how to adapt her style to the challenges of the office she now occupies.
