Can the union movement defeat the Trade Union Act 2016 in the same extra-parliamentary way its predecessor did with the Industrial Relations Act 1971? Not without a rise in the level of struggle and strength which makes for a bit of a Catch-22 situation.
There is a choice at this election. London is the greatest city in the world, but we're at a crossroads. Londoners can vote for a candidate who will fight for ordinary citizens, or they can vote for four more years of the same. They can vote for hope and diversity, or they can vote for fear.
Ask any British Jew what they want most, and most will tell you to live peacefully, quietly, and to live a Jewish life without fuss and attention. That's why it sits so badly with me that we have been manipulated like this. Used and I would say, abused in this inter-Labour warfare.
The tragedy of Southern Health NHS Trust continues to unfold. There has been a litany of failure and obfuscation by the Trust over the past four years, including over a thousand unexpected deaths which have not been properly investigated...
Labour have a pedigree of winning the biggest prize, in our case a General Election, in Leicester's the Premiership. If fact we've won 9 since 1945, for Leicester this is their first. Labour should have the winning expectations of a Celtic or Rangers, not a rank outsider.
The International Development Committee is encouraged by DFID's focus on the long term development of Yemen and the department's support for UN efforts to facilitate peace talks. We urge the Government to apply pressure on all parties to the conflict so we can see progress in the peace talks and particularly to ensure that the accompanying ceasefire is adhered to by all sides.
With friends like George Galloway, Corbyn doesn't need enemies. Despite describing himself as an old friend of the Labour leader, he has decided to make a nuisance of himself in these all-important local elections... It's no secret that Corbyn is short of friends in the Labour Party, which begs the question, who does Galloway think he is helping? Sadly I suspect it's himself.
The way this government has handled changes to the assessment regime means that the system is being undermined. That parents are taking children out of school speaks volumes about the approach this government has taken. At every turn they are cutting parents out of their children's education.
As the scandal of anti-semitism on the British left rumbles on - and in Ken Livingstone's case it's been rumbling for quite some time - we are hearing more and more of the notion that minority groups should have the final say in defining what does and does not constitute a racist attack on them. In other words, this means that if X is a member of racial group Y, and they think that comment Z is a racist attack on racial group Y, it is a racist attack on racial group Y and that's the end of the matter.
The reality is that nothing is decided at an EU level unless all member countries have explicitly agreed by treaty to do so. Even then, each and every piece of legislation that is made at an EU level is agreed by national governments.
In the past few weeks, I have felt little pride in being a Labour member and supporter. Rather, I have felt ashamed. Anti-Semitism is not the kind of issue you would expect to have to tackle in 21st century British politics. It is so far beneath us and, indeed, so morally inexcusable that members of the Labour party expressing anti-Semitic views should never even be a possibility.... It's upsetting to me that I am even sat here writing a blog about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. The two don't go together. Socialism is one of the key foundations on which the Labour Party was built. Labour has 99 problems, not least our current lack of credibility and leadership issues, but anti-Semitism doesn't have to be one of those problems.
I voted for Corbyn in the leadership election and I would have not done so if I believed him to be anti-semitic. However, I do believe he needs to denounce some of the platforms he has once shared to help repair a broken Labour party.
Saturday marks a milestone for the travel industry and for business people and holidaymakers alike. Mobile phone roaming charges are being slashed by almost three quarters. From 15 June 2017, there will be no roaming charges in Europe at all. And it's all thanks to the EU.
Over the last eight months, the Labour Party has undergone a rapid transformation, with its membership doubling in size. Unfortunately, polls do not look positive - and this is problematic, because if a Corbyn-led Labour Party is unable to win local elections at a time when the Conservative Party is divided over Europe: then when will the Party see gains?
If she is serious, she will appreciate that retaining the whip and the status quo was not in the interests of herself, her party or its ties with the Jewish community. If, despite the disciplinary process, she acts on her words to enhance her efforts with the community, we should all sit up and take notice. Going forward, she has an opportunity to make a real and much-needed contribution. Over to you, Naz Shah.
Daesh's appalling actions in the Middle East are well documented, but most people have not heard the full horrors. They have committed crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and war crimes against Christian, Yazidi, Turimen, Shabak, Sabaean-Mandaean, and Kaka'I people across Northern Iraq. The manner in which these awful crimes are taking place is truly shocking... Too often in history we have been silent in the face of atrocities. It is time we heed the warnings of past generations - 'never again' - and we ensure that action is taken against Daesh for their ongoing genocide.
