Tonight's vote on the Government's Charter for Budget Responsibility should have been a rare bipartisan moment for the Conservatives and Labour to come together for the good of the economy and the country. A mere two weeks ago, it looked like it would be.
This a Bill which will have a direct impact on the wellbeing of young children, where Ministers have failed in their promise, previously forced on them by Peers, to provide the essential details of how it will all work. That I'm afraid amounts to a dereliction of duty.
According to news reports, David Cameron has cancelled a deal to supply prison services to Saudi Arabia. Frankly, I don't believe it. At least, I don't believe that Cameron has stood up to the Saudi regime. If the prison deal has been cancelled, I am sure the Saudis have been offered something else instead.
Our mantra from day one of the campaign has been, "No police widow left behind," this now extends to widowers and civil partners; we will continue to campaign until we achieve parity with Northern Ireland and lifelong pensions for all police survivors.
The Conservative Party is often represented as antagonistic towards the 'working class'. Memories of blood-splattered striking miners and descriptions of the impact of tax credit cuts on struggling families are routinely used to illustrate this representation.
Russian jets and warships have been bombarding targets across Syria for nearly 2 weeks in a campaign which Moscow says is aimed at the Islamic State f...
The Prime Minister's lumping of madrasahs within a three part strategy to tackle extremism at the Tory party conference on Wednesday problematises an ...
Starter homes have two fatal flaws, and unfortunately one is their foundation stone. Firstly, they do not work for families on ordinary incomes. Shelter's analysis shows that Starter Homes will be unaffordable for families on average earnings in 58% of the country. It seems cruel to even mention how unaffordable they are for people on the National Living Wage...
As attention turns to the referendum on whether the UK should leave or remain in the EU, the 'in' camp has decided who will help target their campaign at young voters. June Sarpong will attempt to get the message across to young people that the EU isn't so bad.
The Tories are attempting to steal progressive rhetoric but they can't escape the reality of their policies. Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party will hold the Tories to account, stand up for the many and oppose their unfair cuts to tax credits. The only party of the common ground in British politics is the party that will truly stand up for working people. That's the Labour Party.
He knows exactly what he's doing, but thinks we won't notice. He thinks he's so good at the talking that we won't realise in which direction he's walking. He's so excited at the prospect of occupying the political ground that Labour has (temporarily?) vacated that he can see little else. When he looks out of the Downing Street window every morning, he sees a future that is only blue.
Without a doubt, we can say we are world leaders in this form of therapy - one which favours talking over tablets, empathy over medication. I feel a great sense of pride in our health and care system that other countries, such as Sweden - often held up as an exemplar of modern health care - are now trialling similar approaches.
In the 19th century it was British democracy protesters being cut down, now it's Saudi bloggers and protesters being lashed and facing public decapitation. With the Foreign Secretary wanting to raise a cheer for British business in places like Iran and China, I think jailed activists around the world are in for a cheerless time.
Put simply, chucking bricks together and hoping for the best is no solution, even if 200,000 homes were anywhere near enough to help the millions of wannabe Gen Buy. The current housing crisis is not just a supply and demand disparity (although that is an element of it).
We will have to fight tooth and nail to ensure that the British public vote "Yes" on referendum day and that Britain is not left isolated from Europe and the world. We should put our values into action by ensuring that we achieve more through our common endeavour than alone. I hope you will join us and get involved.
It is clear that Mr. Cameron has become terminally self-righteous. He really wants women, BAME and LGBT+ people in this country to believe that his 'compassionate conservatism' has substance - it doesn't.
