If you are, for example, a disenfranchised labour councillor would you move to a party led by Tim Farron, a distinctly left of centre leader with interventionist instincts who will probably take the party 'back' to the kind of political territory inhabited by Charles Kennedy? I can't see New Labourites seeing Farron as their White Knight.
Jeremy Corbyn is coming to a town near you and he's eating human babies. Once he's finished devouring the nation's infants he'll crash the entire economy, close the banks and light bonfires piled high with savers' cash, just because he can.
This SNP Government has been in power for nearly eight years. In a historic political context that is an incredibly long time. They have achieved little and are now promising less. Let the new powers coming in the Scotland Bill be welcomed and utilised for the benefit of everyone.
It wasn't being 'too left-wing' that did for Labour; it was the belief that, so far as it was desirable to fight on the economy at all, the objective had to be one of aping the Tories on 'fiscal responsibility', for which read deficit reduction for its own sake.
The lobby for assisted suicide has had many advantages on its side - not least money and celebrity backers. Doctors, disabled rights activists, and parliaments around the world have all rejected this step, embracing better end-of-life care. The UK Parliament must do the same.
In this country, after centuries of struggle and strife, we the Labour movement finally created social mobility - the realisation and entrenchment of the British dream. Now it is our duty to protect it.
A concerted march against Jeremy Corbyn's candidacy for leader of Labour is in full stride across the political spectrum. Right and left, neoliberal a...
That's why Andy Burnham asked me to look into how Labour can reconnect with those who have left us for Ukip. Over recent weeks I've travelled to Ukip hotspots across the country and received hundreds of submissions from party supporters and members of the public to my consultation. I have now published my initial findings.
Although the installation of proportional representation looks highly unlikely in the UK, if minor parties manage to continue their rise into future elections, some form of electoral reform could take place with overwhelming public support.
It is sometimes said that we get the government we deserve (not sure about this, we'd have to have done something pretty bad to be lumped with these guys) but it might be truer to say we get the media we deserve.
Labour is no longer my natural friend, and it needs to work hard to deserve my friendship again. While many left wing 'disabled' activists (most of which were not active before 2010) will still argue Labour is the party for all disabled people, I believe the silent majority of disabled people will feel abandoned by them.
Where is all of Labour's genuine young talent? Chuka Umunna was seen as the poster boy of the Blairites but has since shown - with his withdrawal from the leadership election - that he can't cope with the pressures of being a leadership candidate, let alone the actual leader.
In response to the probably unnecessary furore about a statement Jeremy didn't actually say, his official campaign Twitter said this, "Jeremy has opened a debate on street harassment that is otherwise ignored." Well thank you so much Mr Corbyn. I must have imagined the stellar work by the @everydaysexism team for the past however many years. Or the local Hollaback campaigns in both London and Birmingham. I must have dreamed the Labour Women's Safety Commission meetings organised by Yvette Cooper. A lovely dream were I went to lots of local and national consultations with all of the founders of those campaigns and many other women's groups.
Saying that women should travel in single-sex carriages to avoid harassment is much the same as suggesting that women should dress conservatively in order to avoid being raped. The measure places responsibility in the hands of women.
Today Jeremy Corbyn issued his policy on combating street harassment. We are two of the women that were involved in suggesting the seven proposals outlined in this document. This year alone we have been on empty Tube carriages while a man has masturbated, been followed home, felt the need to abort journeys on public transport, and felt wary to report assault to the police.
Black Monday is the reason why Britain needs to step up its role in the European Union and the global arena. Those who have persistently argued that Britain needs to leave Europe completely disregarded the impact of globalisation and the growing economic interaction between states.
