Ed_Miliband_head_and_shoulders.jpgEd Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party writes in the Labour North Conference Magazine:

Welcome to Labour North Regional Conference. I’m sorry I can’t be with you in Newton Aycliffe this weekend.

There couldn’t be a better place for the Conference to be held - next to the new site of Hitachi Rail, a company investing in the region thanks to the groundwork done by the former Labour government, a deal secured by a Labour MP and delivered by a Labour Council.

Since becoming Leader, I have visited the North region regularly and have always enjoyed talking directly to local people. From listening to them it’s clear that these continue to be really tough times for people in the North East and Cumbria.

The Tories and Liberal Democrats claim hardworking families in Britain are better off. But David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg simply don’t understand the cost of living crisis facing hardworking families in Britain.

paul_brannen_with_mandela.jpgHaving been an Anti-Apartheid Movement activist while at Leeds University in the 1980s I was lucky enough to land a full time job working for the Anti-Apartheid Movement (AAM) at its headquarters in Mandela Street in Camden, London.

Here I was employed as the convenor of Southern Africa - The Imprisoned Society (SATIS) and in this role I was responsible for organising the campaign aimed at gaining the release of the political prisoners in South Africa including those on death row and those on Robben Island, whose ranks included Nelson Mandela.

The Labour Party and the CBI don’t always agree, but on the importance of our continued European Union membership we do.

A recent survey of CBI members revealed that 78% of firms in the UK favour staying in.

This really does beg the question: why do UKIP and half the Conservative Party want to leave the EU?

If 78% of garages said my car needed new brake pads, I’d change them. Why do the anti - Europeans not believe the professionals? How can Nigel Farage and Bill Cash know better what is best for business than the CBI and its members?
