Parliament will be standing up for fair taxes. For all companies to pay responsible tax and to play by the same set of rules. If Parliament steps up, we won't be the last country to do so. But the UK will be at the front of the pack. Right where we should be.
Weaponising allegations of abuse by opponents (or allegations of purges in response) may not be the same as weaponising the abuse itself but it is also unlikely to help. Insults are never an acceptable substitute for political argument, from whichever direction they come. Abuse in politics disfigures us all and it threatens us all.
Yet for those on the receiving end, the repercussions of meritocratic liberalism are having your pay cut year on year, drowning in debt, losing your tenancy, or surviving on minimum wage. To such people this ideology basically says; 'give it up'. You have no one to blame for your precarious situation but yourself. These are, let's not forget, the very people that Labour was formed to represent.
Jeremy, it is admirable that you have taken up the 'women's' issue. It is necessary for women's position in society to be free from discrimination and for equality of opportunity and treatment to be the norm. However, what is missing is the recognition of equality of worth for those who work, unwaged, outside the paid economy.
What could lead Rowling to align her views with that of career politicians over that of a huge percentage of ordinary people, young and old, who have continued to show support for the Labour leader despite the constant media barrage against him? I don't know. However, I do know why I, as well as many others, support Jeremy and so I will now endeavour to explain why.
Plenty of us believe that progressive parties need to start to discuss - to at least consider the possibility of - some kind of electoral pact. A 'popular front' to avoid fragmenting the vote among ourselves in winnable seats looking towards electing a Parliament in 2020 that would have a progressive majority for democratic change. For mending our broken democracy.
Then as the so-called coup began, as resignations began to happen, I began to wake up to a reality that many had already seen. Jeremy, while his politics are great, was not going to be a man to lead us to an election victory. When you cannot command the support of your MPs - how can you be expected to command the support of the country.
Both campaigns have deliberately bypassed rational argument. They play instead to the emotional response of angry people for whom reason no longer makes sense. Since the time of Plato and Aristotle, democracy's critics have warned of the ease with which reason can be subverted and citizens seduced by the false oratory of charismatic leaders.
We must accept that for decades women have asserted their rights both through stripping off and burning bra's to covering themselves up in clothing. This is about us as women deciding how we choose to dress, writing our own scripts and owning our own narratives And the men need to get with the programme and stop using women as pawns for the sake of their own control and power regardless of whether that be through democracy or dictatorship.
Without defeating austerity, and the mixture of ideology, corruption and spinelessness that allowed PFI to happen, we cannot save the NHS. It is for that reason that Jeremy Corbyn is the only leader who I trust as a doctor to not only defend the NHS but to make it the envy of the world.
During the referendum campaign Davis and his Leave campaign colleagues were incredibly reticent when it came to explaining the Brexit process and what comes next. The narrow Leave vote was therefore achieved on the basis of many unknown factors about what Brexit would mean. With Leave winning, and getting their desired Whitehall Department, they need to start providing answers. In the last days before the Commons rose for the Summer Recess I tabled fifty Written Parliamentary Questions to DREXIT that I think the Government now needs to answer.
Back in May, Philip Hammond, the then British Foreign Secretary, said that the International Syria Support Group - an alliance of countries trying to end the conflict - had agreed to a UK proposal for the UN World Food Programme to carry out airdrops of supplies if aid continued to be blocked on the ground. Since then the suffering and the sieges have continued and yet no airdrops have taken place. The UK must ensure that the commitment it claimed to have secured is delivered and that aid gets through.
The sets of proposals from Smith and Corbyn are to be welcomed. Notwithstanding their weaknesses (Corbyn, Smith) and doubts over the degree of commitment to them (Smith), they present an opportunity to re-open a public debate on a long marginalised subject, namely, levelling up workers' rights.
To analyse the demise of these parties, we must look at the historic role of social democracy, which emerged in the 20th century as a compromise between capitalism and socialism. It sought to regulate capitalism, rather than replace it.
The UK is in a mental health crisis. Millions of people all across the country suffer in some way with mental health issues. In treatment they face long waits and insufficient care. Many regions are without the correct services to treat people. People are misdiagnosed and ignored.
More funding for the NHS will not build a healthier nation if it leaks straight into the pockets of drug companies. The wellbeing of Britain requires the political will to strike a fair balance between private profit and public benefit.
