If Scottish Labour adopt a neutral stance on the upcoming independence referendum and continue to advocate genuine socialist policies, I'm willing to forgive previous misdeeds consider voting them again and I know I'm not alone.

I've Lived Britain's Housing Crisis - And Only Labour Can Fix It

Nathan Akehurst | Posted 02.05.2017 | UK Politics
Nathan Akehurst

Over the next few weeks I hope and expect new policies to support Labour's housing agenda - action on rogue landlords and assurances that new homes will be suited to those who need them, and service provision will keep pace with housebuilding. For now, I'm grateful that I can vote for a government not held over a barrel by vested interests, and willing to get tough on the housing crisis which is blighting - and shortening - too many lives to count.

The lessons from my experience at the local level are that divided parties don't function.

Jeremy Corbyn's Guide On How To Lose An Election

Tessa Milligan | Posted 20.04.2017 | UK Politics
Tessa Milligan

"The General Election isn't about Brexit" is as good as saying "the referendum wasn't about immigration." Yes, the referendum was surrounded by other pressing issues but immigration was the defining characteristic for a large swathe of voters. And the defining issue of this snap election is Brexit.
