lets you quickly and easily set up a campaign and share your ideas with the Labourspace community. If you start a campaign which gains the most popular support your ideas will be bought to the attention of senior Labour politicians - your campaign could give you the opportunity to change the world!
Or at least influence those who can effect change in our own small corner of the world.
A campaign which should be of interest to Unionists in all four parts of the UK has now been set up on the site:
A National Conversation for England
‘A National Conversation for England’ is a campaign that urges people to engage positively in discussion on the question of England: our national identity, our democracy, our governance, our future. We call for a government consultation of, and for, the people of England, so that we - the people - can determine the form of government best suited to our needs.
What exactly is being proposed:
...an English equivalent of Scotland’s Calman Commission, to be tasked with gathering evidence from around England, with a view to making recommendations to the Government on ‘The English Question’ – the question of how England should be governed. Following on from that an English Constitutional Convention should be established along with a Royal Commission on the Governance of England to bring forward proposals to the UK Government.
The asymmetrical devolution system inflicted on United Kingdom in the late 90s has resulted in the igniting of “The English Question”...the question for Unionists in all four parts of the United Kingdom is how do we propose to address the constitutional and democratic deficiencies highlighted by this campaign?
