Rhammel Afflick

I think its important to remember how much we really need to come together for the sake of democracy as a whole to ensure young voters don't just visit the polling stations, but have they have an authentic opportunity to really understand what political parties are putting forward and more importantly have a chance to scrutinise those plans.

A "Mental Patient" fancy dress costume on sale at Asda and a 'Psycho Ward' costume at Tesco shows just how much further we have to go in destigmatising mental health issues. Ed Miliband was rightly lauded on Tuesday as he called for greater openness and discussion of mental health issues during his speech at Labour Party Conference.

Labour understands that the people who go out and work long, hard hours to build up a business and create wealth and value to communities are not simply Treasury cash cows. They need help and support. The Tories have long forgotten this.

UK's Failure to Grow Talent Has Nothing to Do With Immigration

Heather Rolfe | Posted 23.11.2013 | UK Politics
Heather Rolfe

Ed Miliband is right to put training on the political agenda, but in pointing the finger at firms who recruit skilled migrants, he is attacking the wrong target. The proposal fails to address the lack of training and opportunities for workers in low skilled occupations and sectors, and competition for these jobs between migrants and UK born workers.

Ordinary Working Men and Women Should Be Involved in Our Party

Gloria De Piero | Posted 10.11.2013 | UK Politics
Gloria De Piero

I've just watched his speech to the TUC. It shows that Ed is determined to open up our politics and involve ordinary working men and women in our party. Anyone who thinks that these people dominate the Labour Party - its selections, elections and decision-making - are not living in the real world.

John Wight

The Labour Party leadership's embrace of welfare reform - set out in Ed Miliband's recent keynote speech on welfare to a select audience in Newham, East London - marks a victory for the right and describes another benchmark in the political degeneration of the party that created the welfare state.

The left has moved so far to the centre we have three parties of professional politicians who have little emotional or intellectual connection with the electorate. The electorate have very few options.

Can We Trust Labour's Surprise 10p Announcement?

Robert Halfon | Posted 16.04.2013 | UK Politics
Robert Halfon

Already in parliament, and through the website www.GreatGordonBrownRepealBill.com I have argued that the focus must be on lifting the burden of taxes off the low-paid. Once we have lifted the personal allowance to £10,000, I think the next step must be to restore the 10p rate.

Robert Ford | Posted 13.02.2013 | UK Politics
