Labour National Policy Forum- Draft Policy Documents

The National Policy Forum South-East comrades have helpfully posted the draft documents for Labour’s six policy commissions.  These cover:

Although each policy document begins and ends with questions (they are draft documents after all, and the point of them is to encourage submissions from Labour members) the middle bits are also a useful summary of where we are now and current Labour policy.

Labour Achievements 1997-2010

There are lots of good individual sites out there that list Labour achievements from 1997-2010, so I thought I’d try and collate some of them for easy reference.  Some of these are slightly out of date, but still I think useful as a prompt for the kinds of things we should be monitoring now.  I’ll add more to the list if people point them out.

The Coalition Agreement

The Coalition Agreement covers the planned legislative programme for the Tory-Lib Dem Government.

It’s like a manifesto, only no-one knew what was in it until after the election.

Still, it’s an important resource in holding the government to account on their own terms.
