Yesterday Keir Starmer's Labour Party announced a new reshuffle of its shadow cabinet. It just coincidentally happened on the same day Angela Rayner gave a big speech on Tory sleaze, leading some to speculate on friction within the party. 'What you can't avoid is that they ultimately decided to do the reshuffle on a day where Angela Rayner, the deputy leader was trying to make a big statement that would lead the news.' - Katy Balls Isabel Hardman talks with Katy Balls and James Forsyth about Labour's key moves, as well as the latest updates on the new Omicron variant and the plans to thwart it.

While the National Party was in the throes of its leadership crisis last Wednesday night, Parliament's Speaker had hours earlier taken the highly unusual step of lambasting the Labour government over the way it rushed through the far reaching traffic light system legislation, under urgency. The law that seriously curbs the freedom of unvaccinated people was rushed through in a 24-hour urgent session in order to be passed in time to take effect this week. The Speaker Trevor Mallard, himself a Labour MP, said the Government and the House had failed to fully scrutinise the bill. He made a specific ruling before the third reading debate started on the COVID-19 Response (Vaccinations) Legislation Bill yesterday, to lodge the criticism. One of a raft of critics of the way the legislation was rushed through is constitutional and public law lecturer Dean Knight, Associate Professor at Victoria University of Wellington School of Law. He tells Kathryn it is a 'constitutional disgrace.' She also speaks with litigator and public law specialist Andrew Butler.

In what was an avoidable tragedy, at least 27 people have died trying to reach the UK after their boat capsized in the English Channel. Anoosh Chakelian, Ailbhe Rea and Stephen Bush discuss the political context that allowed this to happen, and its implications for the government. Then, in You Ask Us, a listener wonders whether the Northern Ireland shadow secretary Louise Haigh made a gaffe by saying Labour would remain neutral in a poll on Irish unification.

This month, Premier Ford's Progressive Conservative government made major moves to court workers, seeking to change labour laws with the Working for Workers Act and pledging to raise the minumum wage. But, do Ontario unions actually like what they see, and will this help Ontario's working class in substantial ways? Also, are we witnessing a political realignment? The Agenda welcomes the minister of labour and union leaders to discuss their often rocky relationship. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Matt Forde is a comedian whose book, Politically Homeless, charts his progress from working for the Labour Party to disillusionment in the Corbyn years. He's also the host of the excellent podcast, The Political Party, and co-host, with Alice Levine, of British Scandal. Hannah talks to him about all of that, obviously, and a lot more besides, including the sort of personality it takes to fake your own death, drawing a cock and balls on a ballot paper, Mo Mowlam, and that time Hannah embarrassed herself in front of Armando Iannucci.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/standardissuespodcast.

There is definitely a podcast to be made about the political opinions expressed in many a TV Doctor Who adventure... but this isn't it. This is, instead, a look at many of those people who have sojourned in the Whonioverse who have dedicated at least some of their lives to politics. Forming parties, standing for parliament, serving on a district council - there are undercover government agents and wannabes in such stories as Carnival of Monsters, Time-Flight and Planet of the Spiders. There are liberals, UKIPpers, Labour and Tory, and even a genuine and unrepentant fascist among the cast and crew lists of Doctor Who. So here is a - not claiming to be exhaustive and definitely quite scattergun - guide to the characters, their policies and sometimes their very, very unconventional views. Hopefully it'll get your vote.
The government has confirmed it's scrapping the section of the HS2 high speed rail link from the East Midlands to Leeds. Labour accused ministers of a betrayal of promises.

This is a story about how quickly politics changes. Gemma Doyle was elected the MP for her hometown in 2010 with a massive majority. Then the 2014 independence referendum happened, upending Scottish politics. A year later Gemma lost her seat to the SNP on a 34% swing. Then Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the Labour Party. This is a refreshingly honest account of what it's like to be a Labour politician of this generation. Gemma worked for Labour in government, became an MP in opposition and saw British politics completely transform. No longer an MP, she is still involved with the party and she explains why, when others left, she decided to stay.

MPs can now request a security upgrade of their Wellington homes following growing threats from anti-vax protestors. The step-up from Parliamentary Security comes after Labour's chief whip Kieran McAnulty was the target of death threats. A protester, former ad-man turned conspiracy theorist went live on Facebook during a confrontation with McAnulty, who later met with parliamentary security about safety. He told Morning Report it wasn't the confrontation itself that concerned him. "It's those that appeared to watch it, and then get emboldened and then get in touch and they go one step further. That was the concern. “Death threats towards the MPs is nothing new, but we should never become immune to this, and we should always take it seriously." McAnulty said he wanted to get advice from parliamentary security about how credible the threats are. "Whether they were just some keyboard warriors getting wound up or whether they were credible. “When I met with parliamentary security yesterday, they were taking it seriously and so therefore, so should I." He said it wasn't just MPs that were copping it in the ear too. “We've seen this toward journalists as well, and just members of the public that might be coming out in defense of this approach to keep people safe from Covid. I've seen various online discussions that have turned pretty threatening pretty quickly. “We know that people say things online that they wouldn't dare say, face to face, but we can't sit back and be complacent and just put it back to someone that's just getting wound up online."
Party support has dropped slightly for Labour in One News' latest Colmar Brunton poll. It's down two points to 41 percent, while National has gained two points to 28 percent. Jacinda Ardern has lost five points in the preferred Prime Minister stakes, sitting on 39 percent while Judith Collins is at 5 percent, The ACT Party has held steady on 14 percent, with support for its leader David Seymour as prime minister also steady on 11 percent. Political editor Jane Patterson spoke to Corin Dann.
The Delta outbreak has nibbled away at Labour's popularity, but National is not exactly benefitting from it. In the latest One News Colmar Brunton poll, Labour is at 41 percent - down two points - and National is at 28 percent - up two points. Act are holding steady at 14 percent. The Green Party is on 9 percent - up one point. Craig McCulloch has the details.
Labour is beginning to hurt in the polls as rating of Covid management slump and another day of more than 200 infections yesterday. Also at COP26 New Zealand pledges an completely unquantifiable sum of money, dependent on international carbon prices to buy its way out of cutting emissions. How much of a `fiscal risk' is this approach? Neale Jones was Chief of Staff to Labour Leader Jacinda Ardern, and prior to that was Chief of Staff to Andrew Little. He is the director of Capital Government Relations. Ben Thomas is a PR consultant and a former National Government press secretary.

Marc was having a conversation with Manny and 5 mins in, this show idea came up, we have to share this. Marc recently had a Zoom call with our Minister of Labour and he's going to share that talk. We are going to talk about getting into trades and why teenagers should consider consruction as a career, we are going to talk about wages and rates, running your business, working for someone, we are going to compares construction to other career options, we are going to talk about Guidance Counselors and what they are doing wrong, we are going to talk about parents and what they are doing wrong, we are going to talk about how much money you can make, how much you can loose, we are not going to sugar coat anything on this show, you don't want to miss this one. We discuss the whole influencer career choice and what's really involved behind all that and how it's not a viable option for real tradespeople. Half way through the show Marc walks everyone through the wage numbers, what your student debt will be, what your starting trade wage will be, where you as a trade will be 10 years into the game, these numbers will open your eyes. We discuss the bell curve and how the industry is top heavy right now but that's going to dramatically change in the next 5 years, over 20% + of the workforce is leaving the industry and it's not being replenished by the new generation. Towards the end of the show Manny and Carlito share a rant of reality when it comes to clients, our rates and our worth. If you stay in the construction business long enough you will come across an asshole client that could potentially destroy your business, your livelihood, and you, all in the name of telling the contractor “go fuck yourself”. Yes we understand the construction industry is an amazing career choice but here at TCL we want to share the whole truth, why? Cause nobody on social media is doing that and certainly nobody on TV reno shows are doing it.Shared and Discussed Linkshttps://www.topuniversities.com/blog/10-oldest-universities-worldhttps://www.jordanbpeterson.comhttp://schuberttc.ca/About.htmlWhat an amazing show Marc, thank you so much for spending the time to share your stories and valuable information, looking forward to seeing you again and talking more construction. Find Marc @craigmhor_construction www.craigmhor.ca and email@example.comFind Manny @hardcorerenos firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.comWant to reach out to Manny, text him on his mobile, 416 433-5737 and or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Please let him know who you are and then ask away. TCL has and always will be about giving back to the construction industry. The 24HR Podcast Event is happening November 20th and 21st Carlito and Manny will be recording 14 shows back to back, no sleep, all great conversations and all 14 guests have been booked. Stay tuned.
Alok Sharma needs to turn up the drama to get COP where it needs to be, says Ed Miliband. Instead of ‘No Drama Sharma', the former Labour leader thinks the president of COP26 should go for ‘High Drama Sharma'.

And Adam shares some (unscientific) analysis about whether Newscasters are more likely to listen when they are walking the dog or brushing their teeth.

In Art Work: Invisible Labour and the Legacy of Yugoslav Socialism (U Toronto Press, 2021), Katja Praznik counters the Western understanding of art – as a passion for self-expression and an activity done out of love – and instead builds a case for understanding art as a form of invisible labour. Focusing on the experiences of art workers and the history of labour regulation in the arts in socialist Yugoslavia, Praznik unpacks the contradiction at the heart of artistic production, and shines a light on how the economic reality of creative work has often been obscured by the mystification of artistic endeavour. Drawing on Marxist-feminist analysis, the book demonstrates the value of recognising that artistic labour is ultimately a category of work. In this way, Praznik offers a strategic framework for enhancing our understanding of the struggle for equity in the world of institutionalised art production. Katja Praznik is Associate Professor within the Arts Management Program at the University at Buffalo. Iva Glisic is a historian and art historian specialising in modern Russia and the Balkans.

You are about to hear something very special. Anas Sarwar is a captivating politician, blessed with a unique ability to transfix an audience and move them emotionally. This is somehow mixed with another ability. The ability to dance so well it creates complete chaos at a live podcast recording. It's an instant classic of an episode and includes Anas' analysis of how Labour can recover in Scotland and across the UK, the racism he has faced throughout his life and issues of national identity and privilege. It also contains massive laughs, largely at Matt's expense as Anas starts to take over the night. Enjoy!

Following the resignation of the former Conservative minister Owen Paterson, MPs have been debating changes to their disciplinary procedures and the government has been forced to defend itself against a number of allegations of ‘sleaze'. Help support our independent journalism at theguardian.com/infocus
Over the weekend most media tore into the Owen Paterson affair, with a lot of talk about MPs' second jobs, how Conservatives pick their peers, and even Lords reform. But how did it come to this? Who should have told Boris that last week's actions and reactions were bad politics? 'I know some MPs who think the way that they voted last week will be held against them at the next election. They can imagine Labour running an anti-sleaze ticket.' - Fraser Nelson Katy Balls gets into all the Westminster details with Fraser Nelson and James Forsyth.
The Labour Party has been out of power for over a decade. And after a historic electoral defeat in the 2019 general election, the party looks to be in real trouble. Sir Keir Starmer became leader in April 2020 replacing self described socialist Jeremy Corbyn and tried to steer the party towards a less radical, more outwardly patriotic brand of politics than his predecessor. But the loss of the Hartlepool by-election as well as many other local elections across the country has led some to believe that Labour's decline is terminal. And the Party has lost touch with its base outside a 'woke' London elite.But are the Labour bashers declaring victory too soon? The Conservative Party may be ahead in the polls, but they are still benefiting from excitement around Brexit and a successful vaccine campaign, things which will inevitably wane as the pandemic eases and economic realities start to bite. And let's not forget that demographics are in Labour's favour. Most 18 to 24-year-olds supported Labour in the last general election. Over time, this cohort of university-educated, progressively minded renters will expand. The task may not be easy, but if Labour can articulate a forward looking vision for the United Kingdom, surely it can win again?

“A bingo card of Tory sleaze…” It's COP26 week so naturally the Tory Government puts the recycling out – bringing back 90s corruption by overturning the suspension of self-enriching paid lobbyist MP OWEN PATERSON. What were they thinking, will it bite them back in the end, what exactly were Randox getting for their money, and can we consign “standards in public life” to the box of quaint historic relics? Plus our guest this week is PAUL HAWKEN, author of Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation. • “Johnson's like a greasy pastry. The sleaze is baked in.” – NAOMI SMITH • “Politics is the most environmentally destructive industry in the world.” – PAUL HAWKEN • “The Brexit Party saved Labour from an even worse defeat in 2019… ‘Thank God for Nigel Farage' is quite a statement” – DORIAN LYNSKEY • “The only thing Bolsonaro hates more than trees are the indigenous people living among them.” – NAOMI SMITH www.patreon.com/ohgodwhatnow Buy Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation: https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Paul-Hawken/Regeneration--Ending-the-Climate-Crisis-in-One-Generation/25990481 Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Naomi Smith, Ian Dunt and Ros Taylor.

MPs voted in favour of reviewing the standards process after former Conservative minister Owen Paterson was found to have breached lobbying guidelines by the Commons' standards committee. The vote means Paterson's case will now be reviewed by a new committee chaired by fellow Conservative John Whittingdale. Labour said the move highlights the government's “corruption” and that it wouldn't take part in the new committee. Chair of the current standards committee, Labour MP Chris Bryant, spoke to Nick Robinson this morning and condemned the vote as a “perversion of justice”. Also speaking to the Today programme was the Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng who said the government was “trying to reform the system”. (Credit: House of Commons)
Kinnock is on a mission to make Labour electable... sound familiar? Stephen Kinnock is very much his own man and his own politician, and his new project 'Labour Renaissance' has published a fascinating report into the voters Labour lost and what the party can do about it. This is a brilliant analysis of where Labour has gone wrong, combined with practical recommendations about how it reconnects with the public. Stephen also talks about his upbringing, how it made him who he is and an incredible experience in Russia that had a profound effect on him.

Is it a “strongman” rising in the shadows or can it be the ascent of a leader without a democratic mandate as well? We go to Manitoba where the new Premier was elected by just over 8,000 PC loyalists and questions linger around her legitimacy. Then, we head east to PEI for an update on the provinces mobile health units. Many of the questions we asked when the program was launched have now been presented by the PEI Liberals. How can we expect transparency on public private partnerships and ethics issues when the goal is to privatize healthcare? Before we go, CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn joins us in the CUPE Ontario Union Hall for a look at the Ontario Federation of Labour's detailed plan to beat Doug Ford and create a better province for working people — on Election Day and beyond. https://twitter.com/Joe_Roberts01 (Follow Joe on Twitter) https://twitter.com/itsrodgermoran (Follow Rodger on Twitter) _________ Support this podcast
Fan of the show? https://www.patreon.com/newleftradio (Support us on Patreon)! It's time to reimagine what our government does on behalf of Canadians, how it does it, and who it serves. It's time to rekindle democratic socialism for a new path forward for Canada. Andrew Jackson joins to discuss his new book which lays out the arguments for a future that turns away from capitalism and towards replacement with something altogether different. About The Fire and the Ashes: Rekindling Democratic Socialism In The Fire and the Ashes, long-time union economist and policy analyst Andrew Jackson looks back on a fascinating career in the labour movement, the NDP, and left politics, combining keen historical analysis with a political manifesto for today. As one of the few trade union economists in Canada, Jackson brings a unique insider perspective and decades of experience to bear on his critical reflections on the history and changing fortunes of the NDP, the failures of neoliberalism, and the waning and recent renewal of the democratic socialist tradition. What plays out is a battle of ideas fought by Jackson and the wider left—one meant to rekindle both political veterans and a new generation of activists who believe that a true democracy cannot exist with great inequalities of wealth and political power, and that social ownership and public investment must be brought squarely into the mainstream. https://btlbooks.com/book/the-fire-and-the-ashes (Buy the book here) About Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson is the Broadbent Institute's Senior Policy Advisor.
