Our manifesto will lay out a vision for the future – and we want the insights and passions of the Labour community to help shape and define it.

We’ve just published a summary of some of the key policies we've announced already, which you can read here: www.labour.org.uk/our-policies

Help shape our 2015 manifesto by joining one of our supporter panels on five key issues. First, contribute your views and ideas online. Next, we’ll be inviting a group of supporters on each panel for a round-table discussion with the Shadow Cabinet member responsible for that issue.

Alison was delighted to accept a commemorative shield from a group of Palestinian students yesterday to thank her for voting ‘yes’ to officially recognise Palestine as a state.

The students travelled all the way from Ramallah, in Palestine, to present the shield which was made in Bethlehem. Alison voted to recognise Palestine, along with almost 200 other Labour MP’s, in the House of Commons, back in October last year.  Travelling in and out of the area is a trial in itself given the restrictions.   We heard from one young man who had been in the UK and wanted to return because his father was dying.  He was not allowed entry and his father died.

Alison said: “It was great to meet these students who have travelled such a long way. I felt it was important to vote to recognise Palestine, along with so many other Labour MP’s. The situation there continues to be desperate and the need for a peaceful and negotiated settlement gets greater every day.   This was an important step for the British Parliament to take in sending a strong message that Palestine is a state, should be recognised as such and given every diplomatic assistance possible to get the negotiated peace with Israel.”

schizophrenia_2.jpgAlison was really interested to read about the new improved Living with Schizophrenia website this week. 2014 was a very busy year for the Living with Schizophrenia project and over the year they have seen their website traffic grow fourfold.

Schizophrenia is a major public health issue in the UK, with over a quarter of a million people currently being treated for the condition by the NHS and accounting for several thousand deaths each year.

Despite much research work over the years it is still not fully understood and although some aspects can be effectively controlled by modern treatments there are still symptoms of the condition for which we have no ready solutions.

Living with Schizophrenia is a UK project providing help and advice to people in the UK who are suffering with schizophrenia, their carers and relatives and to healthcare professionals.
