Make housing a key election issue!

When Labour led on housing in 1945, with the slogan “Let’s build the houses – quick”, they won, crushing a bombastic Tory leader trading on narrow, post-imperialist fantasies. The parallels are obvious.

Decent homes - not 'housing units'!

George Clark has launched a campaign to bring back council housing. Watch the programme on catch up and look out for future episodes. I trust that he and everyone else realises that the only way his campaign can succeed is to vote in a Labour government.

AS WE ENTER AN ELECTION PERIOD - A WARNING WE NEED TO HEED

SEVERAL FRIENDS contacted me to urge me to watch the new BBC documentary, Rise of the Nazis. Coincidentally, travelling back from a rally in Scotland, I met a young man who was part of the editorial team that made the film. Like my friends he impressed upon me the extraordinary relevance of the film for today’s politics.

Labour for the many – the Tories for the 1%!

The Tories would use the cover of a no-deal Brexit to pursue their wildest Thatcherite dreams to flog off our public services, strip away all the regulations that keep us safe, and undermine workers’ rights and environmental protections.

Labour should kill off 'Right To Buy', not breathe new life into it

The idea of extending RTB to the private sector should be unceremoniously buried and councils banned from selling off their homes.

The real threat to our NHS comes from Johnson, not Trump

To keep our NHS public, we need to make sure Boris Johnson becomes the shortest-serving PM of recent times.

From right wing populism to a new participatory politics

FORTY YEARS AFTER THATCHER told us that the market and privatisation would make the consumer king and queen, her big lie is exposed for all to see. Instead of being a nation of home owners we are more and more at the mercy of an overpriced and inadequately regulated private rented sector.

Republicans and Democrats in the US congress have made it clear that if Johnson’s Brexit strategy continues to exclude the Irish backstop, then Congress will block the US-UK trade agreement promised by Donald Trump.

Council House Scandal: 100,000 council homes a year needed

George Clarke's programme on Channel 4 underlines the need for Labour members to organise to radicalise Labour's housing policy, overcome the resistance of John Healey and to bury the remnants of New Labour's housing philosophy.

Remain Labour

“We need to mobilise our membership as we have never been able to before, both around our positive socialist policies – and around a clear position of opposition to Brexit (because any conceivable Brexit would stand in the way of all of those positive policies).” Jon Rogers, Chair of Brighton Pavilion Constituency Labour Party and of the Sussex Labour Representation Committee, writes in a personal capacity.
