It boils down to the fact that they cannot command a majority in the House of Commons over, even slightly, contentious issues

While the two parties are clearly worlds apart, the Lib Dems look as though they are in line for the same fate of disappearing

Labour let the Tories set the bar in this year’s local elections. We didn’t challenge their agenda, and that has to change

The childish, naive rhetoric from Britain, USA and Russia must end before international peace and stability is put at risk

Local councils should act now

This is not opportunistic pragmatism, but a chance to put Labour's policies for a fairer redistribution of wealth, properly funded public services, and a stronger sense of social justice to the electorate at a time when the British economy is extremely vulnerable to the effects of Brexit and we have a Conservative government who are failing the British people, with a leader who isn't up to the job - Jeremy has proved that he is.

The SNP need to focus on protecting Scottish public services, Scottish education and the Scottish economy. Rather, they are fruitlessly chasing ambitions of an independent Scotland - one that, time and time again, the Scottish people have shown they do not want.

With desperate need for investment in preventing poverty and homelessness, the government is making clear that they intend to hinder social mobility further by undoing much of the vital work the last Labour government did to give every child a fair chance at a good education.

Electing women into positions of political power is a progressive force for change. It would be extremely beneficial to society to have a female leader, and voters in both leadership elections and general elections should be encouraged to cast their ballot for a more equal society, that a female leader would inspire.

Vote Leave suggestions that life would be better if Britain votes to leave the EU is unfounded nonsense, and a hardline Tory-led Brexit could never live up to the presumptive promises they are currently making.

The struggle is finally over for LUU Exec candidate, Jack Palmer's campaign banner after it was returned by hostage takers demanding tickets to the Leeds University Union club night, Fruity. The demands were set out a week ago from the anonymous students, with a ransom demand of several Fruity tickets after stealing the banner for warmth from the freezing Leeds early morning conditions.

We're still talking about it, but not many people in the Labour leadership seem to be listening. In 2020, Labour need to win 94 MPs to form a majority government of just two. The newly released Beckett report has pointed out a variety of reasons Labour lost in 2015, mainly that of the economy, immigration and welfare.

Boxing Day saw another victim of George Osborne's ideologically driven obsession to cut government spending - the homes, businesses and flood defences of Northern England.

With the launch imminent, the World Youth Organisation have said they intend to finalise the guest list, which already contains various figures from the charity alongside MPs, members of the youth parliament and notable journalists.

If the left carry on to hide away from this debate, then they forfeit credibility. Attacking the government's failed attempts to reduce immigration, while putting forward bold policies which outline Labour's belief in protecting workers, is the direction party policy now has to go. To convince voters of the progressive advantages immigration can bring to the UK, the left need to step up.

While opposing austerity, protecting the right to strike and installing a living wage are all things the public can get behind, Labour's strengths will come in highlighting Tory weaknesses. If the government carries on with damning cuts to public services and making working people worse off, #JezWeDid may have governmental relevance in 2020.

Should the EU fail again in a future crisis, whether economic or humanitarian, the tide will surely turn in the 'Out' campaign's favour. Unless pro-EU campaigners swiftly make a positive case for the future of the EU, and why Britain needs to be a part of it, a 'Brexit' could be a very real prospect by 2017.

There isn't a problem with the trade union movement in the UK, and the government is trying to fix something that isn't broken for purely ideological reasons. Surely if the government wanted to come across as the 'party of working people', they should start acting like it at least.
