Issues surrounding race in Young Labour and the wider Party persist. Even with the passing of this motion we will face battles for our voice to be heard across Young Labour, in wider Labour Party structures and Council and Parliamentary selections. Change won't happen in a year, or even two, but it will.
The Speaker represents the House of Commons, not just the members who reside there, but everything it stands for. Our values and our laws could not be clearer on equality for all. By speaking out in the way he did, he did not overstep the mark, but defended the honour of the House and all it stands for.
We are in danger of losing sight that only the highest quality early education and childcare reaps social and economic dividends. Britain desperately needs a new childcare strategy so we can get the greatest bang for our buck.
A Labour-run DfID would seek to offer a hybrid approach that focuses on economic, environmental and social development, without ever losing sight of what DfID was created to achieve. I will continue to champion the invaluable work DfID does and ensure the UK does not wane on its foreign aid commitments.
What matters most to Sadiq Khan? Is his primary motivation as London Mayor to leave a lasting, positive legacy? Or is his real focus to gain short-term popularity and establish a rival powerbase within the Labour Party to the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn? Does he wish to serve London for 8 years as his two predecessors did, or is he planning to cut and run after 4 years?
The NHS is facing a 'humanitarian crisis'. This was the message from the Red Cross as we entered the New Year. It may have sounded a bit dramatic, but reports from across the country certainly suggest that services are facing significant pressures.
When I held up a sign behind Nigel Farage on Wednesday it, to my shock, went viral. Less shocking was the torrent of abuse and hate that followed online. Quite a few, more understandably, asked me what Nigel Farage had done to deserve having a crudely, off the cuff note held up behind his head. For those people, here's a handy list of just five fibs Nigel Farage told that day and over the past decade.
We are starting to witness a shift in public opinion towards mental health. This is thanks not only to pioneering campaigners, but also an increasing number of celebrities, sports people and public figures who are willing to speak honestly about their experiences. But as the walls of silence begin to tumble, and the societal stigma around mental health begins to subside, there is concern that as more people seek treatment, they will find there just aren't services there to help them.
It is widely agreed that social care is in crisis, caused by insufficient funding in the face of growing demand. Over recent months, Tory Ministers have ignored repeated warnings from leaders and professionals in the health and care sectors about the impact of the £4.6 billion of cuts which have been made to Adult Social Care budgets since 2010.
I campaigned to remain in the EU. My heart is with all of those worried by the result. I wanted to stay in the EU. I want a Labour government. I don't always get what I want, frequently great swathes of the country don't agree with me. Unlike David Cameron I don't just walk away when things don't go my way. I've got a backbone... Bring on all the messages I'll get after I vote about how I'm weak and feeble. Send me letters telling me I sold you out, gave in to the man. Nothing anyone can say will be close to how I've tortured myself over this. Let me assure you my conscience has been exercised.
This week's government Bill to authorise the Prime Minister to initiate Article 50 is sufficiently long to answer the judgement of the Supreme Court, last week, and sufficiently short to discourage wrecking amendments. Having said that, the time to debate the Bill is even shorter - at just five days for all the stages in the House of Commons. Brexit brevity is far from the soul of wit, as Parliament will this week show.
President Trump banning people from certain countries entering the US has robbed millions of people of their individuality. They are no longer separat...
Labour MPs from ex coalfield communities and the National Union of Mineworkers have come together to ask the trustees of the Mineworkers' Pension Scheme for a meeting to review an arrangement that has left ex-miners billions of pounds worse off.
We should not honour or be seen to endorse those who attack or stand against our basic values of humanity and equality. We should choose not to honour those to those who denigrate women, advocate torture, and who demonise people because of their faith. Those are not British values.
his election is going to be a battle, but I know it's one we can win. Together we can stop the Tories taking Stoke-on-Trent backwards, and reveal Nuttall for the fraud that he is. 23 February is the moment that we reject their politics of hate and give power back to those who will truly fight for working people.
So, Theresa May, listen up! We the British people are telling you stop with the appeasement. Stop indulging a racist, torture-supporting, woman-hating, crypto fascist. Stop him from coming to this country until he lifts the ban on Muslims.
