    Pokemon No for Camden Council

    July 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

    IT’S time to feel a little sorry for local authority press offices, who around the country are having to deal with local reporters desperately trying to crowbar the Pokemon Go craze into their newspapers. Around the country, communications teams are having to face some back-breaking bandwagon jumping with press queries about whether they are happy their civic centres are ‘pokestops’ on the game map, or whether they really think cemeteries are appropriate places for players to [READ ON]

    THE threat of a split – or to use the buzzier term, ‘an existential crisis’ – hangs over the Labour Party’s leadership contest. This has been translated as gun talk by some Corbyn supporters, who feel they are being told that whichever way it falls, they can’t have their man in charge: He is either voted out, or the party dissolves in two and he can be the leader of a party with only 40 MPs. So the What If Corbyn Wins question is what really looms over the [READ ON]
  • Theresa May
    WITH Theresa May heading to Number 10, the Conservatives continue to recall the time they passed her over for the far less attractive role of standing for the party in Holborn and St Pancras against perennial Labour winner Frank Dobson. Everybody seems to have a different version of it, even disagreeing over what year it was. Some say 1987, some say 1992. The pulped Wauchope book on the history of Camden’s politics doesn’t even mention it. One long-server says May simply [READ ON]

    IT was only twelve months ago that we posed the question over whether the Tories could, or perhaps should, have won back the Hampstead and Kilburn constituency at last May’s general election, given the polls-defying success the party had elsewhere in the country. As energetic as Tulip Siddiq’s victorious campaign was for Labour, the margin of her majority was not so emphatic that it could definitively answer the question: what if the Conservatives had gone full kitchen sink?

  • Jeremy Corbyn, Gunnersaurus, Kat Fletcher
    HE was considered a legend in Islington with crowds of fans wanting to shake his hand, but is now accused of outstaying his welcome as he faces a backlash from supporters of his own team. But that’s enough about Arsène Wenger/Jeremy Corbyn… etc, etc Almost trending on social media, see the evidence below, the switcharoos around the Arsenal manager and the Labour Party leader just keep coming. Everybody who tweets it thinks they’ve thought of it first, and on it goes. [READ ON]
  • Tulip Siddiq
    THERE was a big crowd at the Kingsgate Community Centre this evening as Labour members gathered for a constituency meeting, at which an emergency motion on Jeremy Corbyn’s future as party leader was to be discussed. Some people were turned away, some people were left listening through the windows. It was only when a zumba class in the main hall finished, the one where Ed Balls once famously did a bit of line-dancing, that the members were able to move into a bigger room. Some estimated [READ ON]
  • Tulip Siddiq leaves the council... that's not why she's punching the air
    HAMPSTEAD and Kilburn MP Tulip Siddiq is getting ready to explain her position to constituency members this evening, after backing calls for a Labour Party leadership contest. This week, she said she didn’t share the view of 20,000 residents in her area who have signed a petition calling for a second EU referendum because she believes people should accept the democratic vote. Tulip adds in the same edition of the CNJ, however, that she does support a second Labour leadership contest [READ ON]
