Labour's Campaign and Brexit

"Against Tory promises of ‘Strong and Stable Leadership’ Labour must make as clear in 2017 as in 1997 that you can never be sure with a Conservative. Today’s Conservative Party should not be allowed to hide its weakness behind Brexit. 1997 shows that a positive and principled alternative can be produced."



Labour's legacy of discrimination legislation

"With more disabled Labour MPs in parliament, there will be more insight and better knowledge into the problems disabled people face in the world of work and hopefully better legislation can be drafted to ensure disabled people can compete in a  21st century workforce. "


Campaigning

Want to campaign but not sure where to start? The Young Fabians have worked together with other organisations to pull together a timetable of campaigning dates.

Please get in touch with any member of the exec if you have questions. Please also let us know if your organisation would like to add their dates.


The intertwined destinies of Labour voters in the North and the countryside

"New Labour might have tried to update the party’s identity, but in government showed this really a con, and has never fully recovered. This has left a vacuum which shrieks of cosmopolitan elitism, with a lack of respect for the traditions that have developed British identity together for centuries, and appeal to many in Britain today. Without acknowledging them, Labour will continue to be soulless, and inevitably keep haemorrhaging votes."

Labour needs to start gaining ground and winning back voters by making in-roads into these communities if it is to have any chance of winning a majority in future elections. Only then can we realistically deliver the Labour government that Cornwall, and the country, so desperately needs.



We need to stop using “Blairite” as a term of abuse

I am concerned that our generation has yet to learn the lessons of pragmatism and compromise that facilitated that landslide victory and all the positive change that came afterwards. We should remain critical of the mistakes made in those 13 years, but throwing “Blairite” around as a swear word is doing nobody any favours.
