Can there be a Labour Scotland?

Can there be a Labour Scotland? By Ewan Gibbs Throughout the referendum campaign the dulcet tones of Better Together and Yes Scotland promised some brand of fair-or-fairer Scotland that would better embody ‘Scottish values’. Jim Murphy has taken this to its logical conclusion, stating in his victory speech that he wants us to live in the ‘fairest nation on earth’, and boasting his patriotic credentials by seeking to demagogically enshrine them in the Scottish Labour constitution. [continue...]

MEPs must back LuxLeaks Inquiry

MEPs must back LuxLeaks Inquiry By Michael Calderbank Over the weekend, Labour supporters and others have – quite rightly – been getting hot under the collar about the subject of corporate tax avoidance.

International solidarity

More Support for Syriza Open letter published in Guardian 27 Jan. A new government has formed in Greece that places people at the heart of its programme of change.
The crippling bail-out package imposed through the EU/IMF Memorandum has created huge increases in unemployment – especially for the young. There is a consequent loss of health insurance and therefore access to health services for nearly 1 in 5 Greeks, as well as severe homelessness and energy disconnections. This has created what the Lancet has reported as a public health tragedy. Wages and pensions have been drastically cut while living costs have soared. There has been an erosion of basic rights such as collective bargaining. As well as damaging society these policies have failed to reboot the Greek economy and the public debt in relation to GDP is now far greater than it was before the programme started in 2010. [continue...]
