If the Labour MPs want something constructive to do, then start working out policies and ideas that might help attract voters back to Labour... I'm not saying that any Labour MP should have to abandon his or her own views, or cease to articulate them within the Party's democratic structures. But I am saying that this continual war of attrition is achieving nothing beyond taking the pressure off the government. So my clear message to the plotters is - stop the sniping, stop the scheming, get behind Jeremy Corbyn and start taking the fight to the Tories.
Many union leaders favour staying in. But the wider movement is far from united on the question. Two unions have already endorsed a 'leave' vote, and a sizeable number of rank-and-file trade unionists want out.
You're probably thinking what on earth am I going on about, 2016 is just another year in the calendar but it's not. The decisions made this year in both the political, legal and economic spheres will have consequences that are far reaching.
Britain is facing a national emergency in housing. Millions of people are living in fear and desperation without a secure, affordable place to call home. This fear is tearing communities apart and creating a more polarised society where the lucky few are the only people who can afford to own such a basic commodity.
Keeping someone in prison costs £100 per day. If that money was used efficiently to pay for alternative forms of punishment with proven track records in countries such as Sweden, then the prison bill could easily be cut with no risk to the public.
Emily Thornberry's review appears to be open-minded. That is at least what she is claiming, and the evidence from her recent media interviews and the direct conversations I have had with her lead me to believe it. She is suffering a relentless attack on her character and intelligence on the basis that she has no place in questioning the assertions of invulnerability of our systems. But this is doing disservice, to her, but far more importantly, to the issue facing us as a nation.
We're planning to stay here all day in protest at government plans to force fracking on communities across the country. Today we want to show David Cameron's government - this is what it feels like to have the shale gas industry pushed on you against your own will.
The problem is that neither really comes close to the heart of the matter, which is that what the government calls a Living Wage is in fact nothing of the sort.
Osborne will also not gain a boost in popularity from amongst the Conservative Party membership by going down an anti EU line which Boris or Teresa might try to do. He has to stand on his record and achievements. He has misjudged the mood on the tax issue and it will haunt him.
Regeneration should be first and foremost about the residents of the community who belong there; otherwise we really should ask this question in the coming mayoral election: who are these gentrification projects really for?
The arguments for a political system that's genuinely democratic, that produces a government reflecting the will of the people that encourages a more constructive, effective politics are overwhelmingly strong. Britain needs to do this. It needs to do it soon. That requires parties, campaigners - the people - to get together and demand the change. Today's one step in that process.
That the speech took place at all was much more important than what was in it - the policies announced are all fairly small-scale and will have little to no impact if pushed through without comprehensive sentencing reform.
As a Briton following the US elections, I have many questions going through my mind. What is a caucus? Why are Democrats donkeys? Bernie who? All of these questions have answers that are easily available on Google, but one question still puzzles me: why are Donald Trump supporters so angry?
Last year, charities were threatened with the Lobbying Act's "gagging clauses", and now we learn that the Government wants to prevent charities using public money to participate in contemporary debates on public policy.
Scottish Labour will seriously lose out in this election, of that there is little doubt. Amid speculation that the Conservatives may even beat them to the punch as the SNPs main part of opposition, Labour released its regional list rankings. How will the makeup of the parliamentary party have changed after May?
