Any reasonable person would conclude that these proposals are an unjustifiable assault on trade unions and their members and will seriously undermine good industrial relations. They illustrate perfectly well what this Government really thinks of workers and make a mockery of David Cameron's claim to be on the side of working people.
Ignore his policies - and many will choose to - comrade Corbyn has finally buried New Labour. Where Brown and Miliband failed to break with the Party's immediate past, Corbyn has succeeded in making Tony Blair and New Labour old news.
That was the mood at the Refugee March where Corbyn spoke as well as I was strolling around with my camera noticing a sense of unity and hope for real positive change amongst everyone. From people welcoming refugees, to folks providing papers declaring it was the people's victory to the individuals attentively listening to a rarity.
The Syrian refugee crisis needs to be met with structural policy responses. Individual Europeans have responded with ...
Our current political leaders, whether we support them on other matters or not, must not abdicate themselves from showing the leadership the world so desperately needs.
I'm pretty sure that a piece of parchment in the HOC library wasn't much of a deterrent anyway. Please learn the difference between your human rights, and the Human Rights Act. Or I will take them from you. Kidding.
Since 2010 David Cameron has successfully made the Conservatives seem more socially progressive, whilst simultaneously bringing through a punishing programme of budget cuts that surpass even those of the Thatcher years. Another Blair is not the solution this time around. Whether or not Corbyn is the person to redefine the left as Blair once did remains to be seen.
Bashar al-Assad is responsible for some of the most heinous war crimes of recent times, including the use of chemical weapons, the mass imprisonment and torture of political opponents, and the indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas causing massive casualties. Yet the unpalatable reality must surely be that, despite his grim record, he remains indispensable in the search for an end to the conflict.
On Saturday I'll join thousands of others - including my Liberty colleagues and many of our members - to take to the streets of London in solidarity with refugees. We will march to show the powerful that we see through the barrage of poisonous, dehumanising rhetoric with which we've been bombarded in recent years. These refugees are not a "swarm", as the Prime Minister labelled them, and they're not "marauding" as they were branded by the Foreign Secretary. They are not, as they have been variously described in the media, an "organised mob", an "unstoppable flood" or "the biggest threat to Europe since the war". They are desperate human beings fleeing war, genocide, tyranny and exploitation in the hope of finding a better life for their families.
The back-and-forth drama between politicians is unlikely to decrease anytime soon and in the current political climate, perhaps we need all the humour we can get. And who knows-picturing Cameron, Clegg and Miliband setting up their own cafeteria rules and sashaying down a hallway to Missy Elliott might be just what we all need.
Fresh from winning a majority at the General Election, the Conservative Government has been free to develop policies without fear of the need to comprise with a coalition partner. But rather than a clear set of policies being laid out, an agenda emerged based on the election manifesto.
Was Khan ever going to commit a crime in the UK? I have no idea. The benefit of a courtroom - or even a Parliamentary debate - is that it allows us to hear the evidence beforehand, and can prevent us from making mistakes. The CIA (and now Cameron) want us to think that they are clinical killers. It just ain't so.
Suddenly we've all got a conscience. Or as frequently happens in situations when humanitarian disasters occur, we've just developed an acute sense of ...
British Prime Minister David Cameron today announced that the UK will "resettle up to 20,000 Syrian refugees" in the next five years. He makes clear ...
Austerity is a political choice not an economic necessity. When the Chancellor rose to his feet at the emergency Budget in July, and when he does so for his Spending Review in October, what is being put forward is an ideologically-driven rolling back of the state. The analysis published today by the TUC reveals how the Budget gives money to the rich, but takes away from the poor. This is the Conservative project, dressed up in the post-crisis language of budget deficits and national debt for extra impetus. Inequality doubled under the Thatcher government, and her heirs seem to be doing all they can to ensure that legacy is extended.
