Maybe it slipped the Chancellor's mind. He must have a lot to think about right about now. The long-term downward trend predictions for the British economy; the volatile dip in jobs and investment seen in July; the seven week low in the value of sterling today. Not an easy in-tray. But, in case he has forgotten, a few months ago some bold spending promises were made.
Electoral oblivion can be avoided, but only if Labour embraces Brexit and stands up for its core voters. These policies will fit with Labour's ideology and will appeal not only to Labour Party members but to the wider public. The Labour Party must heed Get Britain Out's advice, or be out power for a generation.
People born in the early 1980s have almost half the average median household wealth of those born a decade earlier, according to a report released on ...
Today the SNP is publishing 100 Brexit questions 100 days on - it is by no means an exhaustive list, but is shows the sheer scale of uncertainty facing Scotland and the rest of the UK. The Prime Minister is today set to address the Tory conference on Brexit - she needs to take the opportunity to start delivering at least some of the answers. Theresa May's Brexit ministers are more interested in post-Empire fantasies about commissioning new Royal yachts than doing the hard work required - and this casual approach is putting jobs, investment and economic prosperity at risk.
The Government must do more to keep local authorities, housing associations and institutional investors in the business of providing affordable homes for rent, whilst also doing everything possible to assist and encourage private developers to increase their output of new homes to buy. The fetish for home ownership, embodied in the Right to Buy legislation, has had its day, and should be repealed.
So next time you find yourself browsing the supermarket aisle, take a moment to think about the positive impact you could make through what you choose to cook for dinner tonight.
As the great American poet Langston Hughes put it: "I see that my own hands can make the world that's in my mind". Everyone here and every one of our hundreds of thousands of members has something to contribute to our cause. That way we will unite, build on our policies. Take our vision out to a country crying out for change. We are half a million of us, and there will be more, working together to make our country the place it could be. United we can shape the future and build a fairer Britain in a peaceful world.
If we want to ensure that women's life chances aren't narrowed by gender, that girls born today won't face the limitations and closing off of opportunities caused by the combination of poverty and abuse, we've got to start joining these dots.
It is clear what Brexit 'means'. It means that our Government, and our voters will decide on the policies that affect our everyday lives. There will be no immovable 'Brexit Britain', but a democracy with politicians accountable to the voters, for both success and failure... Ultimately Brexit means trusting our democracy and trusting ourselves to find the right path to a brighter future, and to know when to change course too. It is now up to all of us, whether we voted leave or remain, to take part, scrutinise and put forward alternatives to a process that will not end when a deal is signed. Democracy can never end with a final agreement, with 'mandatory' policies, on Europe or any other issue. This is what Brexit means.
I would urge all of those who voted to Remain to rekindle the feelings that they felt in the days following 23 June and to make a stand. We need to protect our economic future and the futures of our children and the Liberal Democrats might just provide the platform to achieve that.
In the cold light of day, it's relatively difficult to see the possible positive outcomes of Brexit. The UK Government has thus far only been clear that 'Brexit means Brexit'. Nothing else is certain.
What exactly is a "Hard Brexit"? How is it different from "Soft Brexit"? Is there a "Hard Brexit" with "Soft" bits like a chocolate covered marshmallow?
With hundreds of his own MPs having no confidence in his leadership, Jeremy Corbyn is simply incapable of uniting his own party, let alone leading the country. But whilst it would be easy to sit back and watch Labour continue to tear itself apart, we in the Conservative Party have a duty to expose just how dangerous, expensive, and downright reckless the policies that they offer now are.
We cannot shape a new European future at such a time of fragility by indulging in nostalgia - none of us, including the UK, can bring back the past. The European Parliament and myself are committed to keep the European Union and its Member States fit for the challenges of the 21st Century: to increase citizens' rights, their freedom and their security. I believe a close relationship between the EU and the UK is instrumental to ease this task, but clarity is needed. The ball is in the British camp.
'Project Fear' claimed if we voted to leave the EU our universities would face financial ruin. We were told academics would flee the UK. We were told UK students would no longer be able to study abroad. False, false, false.
Real social mobility is definitely crucial if we're to help 'just managing' families. But we need a broader focus on progression in work, on building homes, and on geography to reduce segregation and connect people to growing economies. That's how we improve mobility in the here and now.
