It is 35 years since Margaret Thatcher had the party faithful cheering delightedly at the Tory party conference in Brighton: "You turn if you want to - the lady's not for turning." She would not be much impressed by the - what's the polite term: flexibility? - of today's politicians. Groucho Marx, on the other hand, would thoroughly approve.
On Wednesday, David Cameron told the House of Commons that he and I agreed. No, prime minister, we most certainly do not. For the avoidance of doubt, let me spell it out. The thresholds for industrial action being brought forward by the Conservatives in their trade union bill are not acceptable. They erect a double hurdle for millions of workers, in the main low paid and female, to clear before they can take lawful action to defend themselves and they will trip unions into law-breaking as they endeavour to uphold the fundamental freedom of all workers, the right to withdraw their labour.
In January 2013, Prime Minister David Cameron delivered his now infamous Bloomberg speech, promising to renegotiate the UK's relationship with the EU. Following renegotiation, he said he would present the British public with the "simple choice" of staying in or choosing to leave, based on the terms secured by the end of 2017.
Existentialism appears to be everywhere. According to UK Prime Minister David Cameron IS poses an 'existential threat' to the West. It is not uncommon...
We've looked at the problem, and we've outlined the solutions. Now it's time for parties, government bodies and the press to commit to dealing with the underrepresentation of women in Westminster so we can get the fair and balanced politics Britain deserves.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
