The support of Oxford University Labour Club's leadership, and other sections of Oxford's Far Left, for Jeremy Corbyn should not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with the state of politics at Oxford
The mayoral contest is bigger than London for Labour, and there are parallels to the Conservative Party when they were in their uppers. Boris Johnson's defeat of Ken Livingstone in 2008 was vital to show the Tories could win again.
The moment I heard Jeremy Corbyn had made it on to the ballot paper, I whooped with sheer joy. Apparently, however, not everyone in the Labour Party w...
Earlier this week, in response to a question in the Lords from my colleague Larry Whitty, Lord Lawson urged the government to rethink the UK's approach to climate change, and to back away from what he called "unilateral masochism". It is wrong to assume that our approach to tackling climate change is any kind of masochism, let alone unilateral.
The Lib Dems seem quite a tough lot. While it is impossible to ignore the gravity of the electoral crisis which has clobbered the party at all levels since Nick Clegg led it into coalition with the Tories in 2010, Britain without a Liberal party would be an alien place... So what is going on: and will it make any difference who wins?
The campaign is calling upon local beach users, coastal walkers, divers and ocean lovers to take photos of ghost fishing gear they find littering the coastline. This evidence will be presented to Government and seafood companies to show the environmental impact, and then to push for further action.
There are some who will say this is just part of politics - it's just playing the game. Well, it isn't and we mustn't allow it to be. Underhand briefing is unhealthy, it backfires and it shrouds the very real debates on substance that need to happen and need to happen on the record. So, on behalf of Yvette's Leadership Campaign, I am today making these promises...
Following today's announcement, UKIP has become even more closely linked to the fascist bloc in EU Parliament by way of MEPs from Poland's Congress of the New Right party, whose members now sit both in Farage's EFDD group and the new Europe of Nations and Freedoms.
The election of a new Labour Leader will define the Labour party for the next 10 years. This is the time where the party has to progress from the New Labour years and subsequent election defeats..
"I never gave anybody hell! I just told the truth and they thought it was hell" ― Harry S. Truman As more and more people discover the truth on ...
Too much of our time was spent speaking to Labour voters and not enough to those undecided. We need to listen to voters on the doorstep not just ask the odd voter ID question or spout party lines at them, our approach must be tailored based on the needs and concerns of the individuals we meet and the things they tell us.
Jeremy Corbyn secured the backing of 35 fellow parliamentarians for the Labour party leadership contest on Monday, in what was a nail-biting race to get his nomination in on time. Or at least, nail-biting for anyone who cared whether his name appears on the ballot sheet - of which there are few enough.
Running the government budget is fundamentally different from running a household budget. Simplistic dogmatic wheezes, such as enshrining budget surpluses in law, could cause real damage to Britain's economy. Mr.Osborne, please listen to the advice of experts and bin the policy.
Margaret Thatcher has withdrawn from the Labour leadership contest due to fears that she is too radically left-wing to lead the Labour Party.
We've had war-mongering Blair, pro banker Brown and fair but bland Miliband, Labour members deserve better. We need a party to be proud of. Jeremy is popular and will gain votes. As leader he'd re-claim our roots and rekindle Socialist values; values that are as important today, with inequality endemic, as they ever have been.
"Never trust a man with a beard" goes the ridiculous and unfair stereotype. Still, it is one Jeremy Corbyn MP will be familiar with, so you might think he would have more sense than to resort to desperate attempts to pigeonhole people himself. Apparently not. In an interview with Newsnight earlier this week, he suggested the 3.8million who voted Ukip at the General Election were "motivated by racism". It was as accurate an observation as his beard is duplicitous.
