To reap the greatest benefits for the majority of Britons we can't simply accept the economic ideology of the richest, most profitable sectors of our economy. They will always support lower taxes and less regulation, and adherence to this form of economics, as recent history has shown, is not a healthy way to sustain an economy.
I really don't get Labour's campaign at the moment. It's like they're heading into a football match with a 10-0 advantage, up against nine men who are all in blindfolds, and they still end up getting trounced.
On 7 May Britain will vote in the most important General Election for a generation. But there is real doubt about whether the new generation of voters will have their say... This general election will have huge consequences for the young.
As Labour MEPs we are not willing to let medical research funding and policy be dictated by the wealth or strength of vested interests or particular parts of society. Politicians must ensure that those without a voice are heard, particularly as a silent epidemic emerges in our midst.
This week could be seen as the defining moment of the 2015 election. The week that the true nature of the election made itself clear. Whether it is going to be an election based on policy or frippery - a tax avoidance or a pink bus election.
Labour have failed to learn the lessons of the referendum and the previous two Holyrood elections, and in doing so they are depriving millions of Scots of any real hope of change. Saying they are "sorry" and "have changed", just doesn't cut it any more.
For many on the Left, the Labour party is beyond the pale. Damned as having sold out, and seen as no different from the Tories, many see the idea of voting Labour as an assault on their integrity...
It isn't just his opponents who question whether Miliband will become prime minister. A growing number of his supporters do, too... The Labour leader cannot afford to be his own worst enemy, as he approaches the closest general election in a generation.
Please make sure that you, your family and friends are all registered to vote in the coming general election and for any possible referendum on our continued membership of the EU.
Your criminal record, educational attainment and health data could be used to decide when the state should intervene in your life, and equally, when to withdraw benefits from people who are deemed less needy.
I want the government to focus on all young people and nurture the talent we have in order to help our country keep up with global competitors. We are repeatedly told that we are the future of the nation. If indeed we are the future of Britain, why are our leaders not taking us seriously and investing in us?
If there's any one unifying message springing from Change:HOW? so far - from the Labour politicians, to the Greens and SNP, from Syriza to the Pirate Party, from the direct action activists occupying power stations to the man who organised pillow fights in Trafalgar Square, it's exercise your democratic right to have an opinion, to voice it, act on it and fight for it.
On 18 September, the people of Scotland voted against independence. The Scottish National Party (SNP), created in 1934 with independence as its central goal, had lost. Yet just five months later, they are now positioned as one of the big potential winners in May's UK General Election.
It's time for us to be as bold on tackling the staggering income inequality that exists in the UK, by introducing a maximum wage to end the disparity between the top and the bottom. The facts and figures tell it all. In 2013 the average FTSE 100 CEO received total remuneration worth 143 times that of the average employee in their firms.
While this Labour policy may seem progressive, reflecting the reality that many fathers want to be at home with their newborn too, I feel what it's really reinforcing is that after four weeks a man's place is still at work while a woman's is at home with the baby.
Increasing paid paternity leave from two weeks to four weeks might sound like a small step, but it's an essential one. It goes someway to creating an equitable system that sees mums and dads as equal and able... What's not to like?
