Party conferences 2014: What's the best Labour can pitch for on immigration?

With opinion polls still showing that the subject of immigration still elicits very strong anti- responses, with anything up to 70% of people saying they want to see incoming numbers reduced, it ought to be a no-brainer that these moods will be picked up by the parties and given due prominence during the election campaign.


Yet of the three largest parties in Westminster Labour is the one which will find it hardest to reflect negative views on immigration in its election manifesto.  It won’t be admitted by the leadership, but we can expect that the line being whispered out by the party’s campaign strategists will be – least said the better.

Whatever the outcome, there is no chance that the independence movement will fade away any time soon. For those fired by the dream of full secession, any form of “devo-max” will never be enough. Unless this fragile post-referendum situation is handled very delicately, in fact, fraught haggling and finger-pointing between politicians in Edinburgh and London will rouse nationalist fervour anew.

Provider Platform: supporting older workers makes sense

The appointment of Ros Altman as “business champion for older workers” in July saw a real shift in the way the Government wants us to view our 50+ year old employees.


Until recently much of the debate around older workers has been focused on what our senior colleagues can’t do. The task of the new business champion is to challenge such outdated perceptions and get us thinking about what older employees can do and not what they can’t.

UK preserved as Scots say NO to independence | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it
The Scots have spoken, opting to keep the United Kingdom intact after voting 55.3% to 44.7% in favor of maintaining the ancient Union, a much better result than was feared in recent weeks. The news restores calm to the jittery markets, while Prime Minister David Cameron can now shake off the anxiety and get down to keeping his promises of granting Scotland greater powers of devolution, which in itself looks certain to rock the constitution of the UK.
