Labour of the

Labour of the People?

The recent decisions by the NEC regarding Labour's leadership election are unrepresentative of a party that draws its power from the swathes of people it represents. These decisions restrict access to a democratic process on one's ability to pay. This is not what the Labour party stands for.

Labour Party's Day of Reckoning

Yesterday's events were a long time coming. 12 MPs at the last counting resigned from the Shadow Cabinet. It was not of a matter of if, but when. The damage they have done is irreparable.

What Was the Point Mr Jarvis?

I read with interest Dan Jarvis's speech about the economy. Some really good points were made. Then a weird feeling appeared. What was the point of it? I struggle to see what was Mr Jarvis aiming to achieve by this speech.

The Google Tax Deal Is a Slap in the Face of Small

The Google Tax Deal Is a Slap in the Face of Small Businesses

Every small business owner that pays his and her fair share of tax, now knows that the Conservative government is not here to foster and promote growth and competition. They are here to protect established and vested interests. George Osborne hailed this deal as a "major success". It was. For Google.

Surveillance Bill: A Cyber Security Expert's

Surveillance Bill: A Cyber Security Expert's View

If the government really wanted to make a difference, it would properly penalise companies that underinvest in security and lose people's information with little to no impact. It would not ask them to increase the data they are holding about individuals. Holding more data about individuals will make subsequent data losses catastrophic to their everyday lives.

The Conservatives Have a Clear Plan for the National Health

The Conservatives Have a Clear Plan for the National Health Service

The plan is to privatise the NHS. Blinded by the trillions of dollars the health industry generates for the USA and the subsequent donations private healthcare providers would quite possibly give to their party as a thank you, they are clear that the blight of the state-provided NHS to the free markets must go...

Diary of a Labour Conference Virgin, Day 3

I decided enough pain was enough pain. I said goodbye to my fellow delegates from Guildford and slowly with careful movements entered a taxi home. I t was a great day and experience, overshadowed by pain. I will definitely be in Liverpool next year!

Today's conference was an amazing experience that I was proud and humbled to be part of. Now, onwards to day 3 and standing for a few hours to hear Jeremy address the party for the first time in his 32-year career as a Leader of the opposition.

Diary of a Labour Conference Virgin. Day 1

I'll cheat and start first with day 0, Saturday, when I first arrived in Brighton. First time in Brighton, first time in a Labour conference. The sun was shining, the sea was iridescent, looking like a close sister of a Greek island's sea front in the Aegean sea. All good omens about the Labour conference for a conference virgin...

Labour Leadership Candidates, Peers, Alumni, Grandees:

Labour Leadership Candidates, Peers, Alumni, Grandees: ENOUGH!

How dare you declare that if you lose you will not support the new leader? We had one sore loser, David, that instead of staying on and helping his brother and his party win the election, he resigned and left. He showed what was important to him and it was not the Labour party and the people of this country. We do not need any more people like that.

TfL Strike: The Legacy of a Fleeting

TfL Strike: The Legacy of a Fleeting Mayor

For a Mayor who under-invested to improve London's ageing infrastructure yet had no issues in investing in new vanity ideas such as the air line and the garden bridge, the approach to TfL negotiations should be expected. As he abandons the office, he does not have to deal with the consequences.

What I Expect From the Next Labour Leader

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..
