There are exactly six months to go before a General Election which will decide the future direction of our country. Labour will fight and win this election street by street, house by house, taking our case to the people on every issue. That is how I am going to be spending the next six months. That is what my Shadow Cabinet and our MPs will be doing. That is what our councillors, party members and activists will be doing – because that is what they do week in and week out – and they know that is how we win. We are in the fight for the future of our country and in the General Election Labour will show we are equal to the challenges of the time in which we live. This is a deeply anxious country riven by profound inequality, where millions of people neither believe Britain works for them or that politics can provide solutions anymore. The Conservatives cannot meet these challenges. Week after week I listen to David Cameron trumpeting how well everything is going. And I know it rings hollow with so many p ...
UK Government passes motion to recognize Palestine The UK House of Commons passed a motion, voting overwhelmingly in favour of recognizing Palestine as a State. Significantly, this motion is not binding on the UK government even though the House voted 274-12 in favour of granting recognition. Therefore, the vote, though highly symbolic, is not expected to bring about any real change in the policy of the British government with respect to Palestine. Stand of the UK government The British government has maintained that it will grant recognition to Palestine only if it will further the cause of peace. It is believed that the government will consider recognizing Palestine only if a peace deal is agreed upon bilaterally by Palestine and Israel. Split between parties The majority of the Labour Party voted in favour of the motion granting recognition. The motion had the complete backing of the Shadow Cabinet of the Labour Party. However, the Conservative Party was not in favour of granting recognition. Most Con ...

As the Labour Critic on the Green Party of Canada's Shadow Cabinet, I am proud to announce that all my policy resolutions have passed relating to labour issues. The GPC now recognizes that collective bargaining is a Human Right and that discrimination on the basis of union activity should be open to charges laid under the Human Rights Act. Wal-Mart, who goes out of its way to recognize and persecute union minded employees will eventually have to change their attitude and promote to management those so inclined. As it stands now, if one is not anti union, they do not get promoted to management.

Former British PM, and UN special envoy for global education, James Gordon Brown, a doctoral graduate of the University of Edinburgh, Brown spent his early career working as both a lecturer at a further education college and a television journalist. He entered Parliament in 1983 as the MP for Dunfermline East. He joined the Shadow Cabinet in 1989 as Shadow Secretary of State for Trade, and was later promoted to become Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1992. After Labour's victory in 1997, he was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer, becoming the longest-serving holder of that office in modern history.How many Nigerians will have PhD without Using Dr. in their name?

Mike Baldock is Shadow Cabinet member for Growth, Transport and the Environment; Lee Burgess is Shadow Cabinet Member for education and Young People; and Adrian Crowther is Shadow Cabinet Member for Public Health and Care. Congratulations to our local Councillors and we look forward to such a strong team taking forward UKIP ideas and principles over the coming 12 months. It is noticeable that whilst the Tories speak of cutting back they themselves have retained 8 Cabinet Members for a reduced number of Directorates on KCC - each with 1 or 2 deputies - UKIP have appointed a much smaller team of 4 that are directly related to the new system. Perhaps UKIP can take the decisions that the Tories only talk about!

'The Bank of England which is an impartial technocratic institution would implement whatever monetary arrangements were decided to the best of our ability.' Mark Carney Governor of The Bank Of England Alastair Darling ex Chancellor of The Exchequer and in charge while banks ran out of control and crashed the world economy interprets agreement as being told what to do. Maybe the two things are not totally disconnected. He talks of a very integrated social, economic and political system. Obviously not or we would not be having this debate or Referendum in the first place. So who do you trust? An ex Labour Chancellor of The Exchequer who was the darling of The Tory conference and who cannot get a seat in the Shadow Cabinet. Or someone who at least takes what you aspire to seriously and offers thoughts on a method. Thank you Mr Carney for your courtesy and respect and, I suspect, your sense of humour.
The 50p tax backlash: Shadow Cabinet split as Balls is attacked over 'politics of envy' Shadow Chancellor's plans to raise tax caused rifts in Labour, say insiders Ed Balls has been criticised for using 'GCSE economics' by former minister Yesterday Mr Balls even denied that Labour's deficit was a problem By TIM SHIPMAN PUBLISHED: 23:42, 26 January 2014 | UPDATED: 23:44, 26 January 2014 412View comments Labour was in turmoil last night as members of the Shadow Cabinet, party donors and businessmen united to condemn Ed Balls’s plans to raise the top rate of tax to 50p. Insiders said the Shadow Chancellor has left Ed Miliband’s top team divided over the wisdom of ramping up tax after refusing to consult his senior colleagues about Labour’s biggest economic announcement in a year. Former Labour City minister Lord Myners accused Mr Balls of using ‘GCSE economics’ to justify a return to the ‘politics of envy’, while other critics said the move would deter investors from coming to Britain and damag ...

Tom Watson's resignation letter (via Nick Gruen's earlier post). It's either just the ebb and flow of politics or Watson has skewered something profound and unsettling about the fractures in the way we currently play the game. Are we too squeamish or should we demand more? Independence day resignation letter July 4th, 2013 | Ed Miliband MP Leader of the Opposition House of Commons London SW1A 0AA 4nd July 2013 Dear Ed, I said that I’d stay with you as General Election co-ordinator within the Shadow Cabinet as long as I was useful. I think it would be a good idea for you, and me, if I stood down from the role now. As you know, I offered my resignation on Tuesday and you asked me to reconsider. I’ve thought about it and still feel it is better for you and the future unity of the party that I go now. There are some who have not forgiven me for resigning in 2006. I fully accept the consequences of that decision and genuinely hope my departure allows the party to move on. Yet it’s not the unattributed .. ...

Thanks to the South London Press for their support of our campaign. Thanks also to their support of the Young Citizens over the last three years. IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL NEWSPAPERS "Last week every police officer in Lewisham agreed to add their hand print to the those of the children of Lewisham's 10,000 Hands Making Lewisham City Safe' cloth. Last month Boris Johnson added his hand print, and in July Ed Miliband and the Shadow Cabinet are to add their in Westminster. These are of course all newsworthy stories, there is interest from London and National papers, support and publicity.

Four years ago though getting support, or even people take us seriously was almost impossible.

Fahan Abd ( DAP supporter ) SYA...what are your views on the quality of these BN ministers like Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Hassan Malek. You think these ministers are competent to hold the post they have been picked for? Do you think that with such Ministers Najib can take Malaysia to a higher level as he has been spewing all over the country before the elections. What about ministers like Idris Jusoh and Shadidan Kassim. Do you think these people are the creme de la creme of the intellectual resources available in Malaysia? SYA Reply 1. I dont even need to reply to your question because DAP got no rights to question about BN Cabinet when Pakatan Rakyat cannot even come out with your own Shadow Cabinet until today. Your only cabinet is all only about Anwar Ibrahim. 2. Stop questioning Ahmad Zahid Hamidi if you are a true Anwar supporter because it was Anwar who groom Ahmad Zahid Hamidi under his youth wing back then in UMNO when Anwar was the UMNO Youth Chief. If you think Ahmad Zahidi Hamidi is not capable t ...
With love from Pakistan...   Arming of Militants   Weapons Seized (see image appended below)     "...There are credible reports of official Pakistan support for militants fighting in Kashmir..." -U.S. State Department report "Patterns of Global Terrorism" 1995. - Mr. Jack Cunningham, Foreign Secretary of the Shadow Cabinet, Labour Party, U.K., in a press briefing on March 25, 1994.

They admitted that they fought in Afghanistan and Kashmir at the behest of Pakistan. A large cache of arms made in different countries and seized from the militants were shown to me. We want to cut off support to insurgency whatever the source.     The arms bazaar in Pakistan. (see ...
