On Friday 18 November the BBC broadcast its annual Children in Need appeal. With this in mind it seems pertinent to reflect on both the charity and broader understandings of children in need. Children in Need the charity has been in existence since 1980 and has raised approximately £650 million pounds (including the £46 million raised so far this year). Terry Wogan (the primary host of the event from 1980 – 2014 inclusive who died in January 2016) and his contribution was remembered during the annual Telephon and online. #ChildrenInNeed trended all evening and alongside tweets referring to the stories told on the night, the celebrity appearances and the growing total there were many others focusing on how life is getting harder in Tory Britain for an increasing number of children. There was also some reference to the government’s announcement, that day, of its support for the 10 year refurbishment of Buckingham Palace. For example:

#ChildrenInNeed has raised over £600 million in 33 years. The Government has pledged £369 million to Buckingham Palace in one afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who raised £46m for #ChildrenInNeed. And those who raised £369m for #RoyaltyInNeed.

“The fake anti-elitism of rich white men like Nigel Farage and Donald Trump is farcical at one level, but in reality it’s no joke. So it is down to Labour to restore hope – and give people the chance to take back real control. The Tories under Theresa May are taking Britain backwards and failing to meet people’s needs and aspirations. Under my leadership, Labour is setting a real alternative for Britain.”

Jeremy Corbyn 19/11/16 in the Guardian

Last week's US Presidential election result was a global wake-up call. Whether in the US or the UK, people are feeling left behind – marginalised by an economic system that makes them work harder for less, while hoovering up ever greater rewards for a small elite.

The event opened with a keynote speech by Jeremy Corbyn MP. In a wide ranging speech the leader of the opposition spoke - with references to work, education, taxation, Europe and more - of Labour's aim to invest in the future for 'a society that cares for all and doesn't just protect the privileged few'. Full text of the speech.

Message to Labour Party members and supporters: Many of you will be aware that several thousand members and registered supporters were disenfranchised during the leadership elections. Many have been suspended for alleged misconduct which has not been proven. Others, some local members, simply never received ballot papers.

Yesterday there was complete panic. Tesco announced that Marmite and Typhoo tea-bags would no longer be stocked on-line. Why? Because Unilever, the multinational consumer goods company, wanted 10% more for their products because of the sharp decline in the value of sterling as a result of Brexit. Marmite was set to become a luxury, as a joke half-used jars went online for auction, marmite was set to become a treat at Christmas. Phew! Panic over, matter resolved.

Seriously, two years before the referendum on independence in Scotland, the Scottish Government produced a hefty 670 page document, Scotland's Future: Your Guide to an Independant Scotland. What did the Tories produce before we went for a referendum on exiting the EU? Nothing?

What did we get? A free for all of figures, contradictory predictions and xenophobia. And now we have May-hem. At least Teresa has a sense of humour. Hole three people who dislike each other, loose canons, up in a mansion (Chevening House) and see what the three Brexiteers can pull out of a hat.

Jeremy Corbyn was right yesterday put the PM on the spot, "at Prime Minister's Questions today, I asked Theresa May about the shambolic Brexit negotiations she is overseeing. The Conservative have offered no plan, no clarity, no transparency, and no chance of scrutiny of the process for developing a strategy for Brexit."

Conservative Party leaders have sunk to a new low this week as they fan the flames of xenophobia and hatred in our communities and try to blame foreigners for their own failures.

Drawing up lists of foreign workers won’t stop unscrupulous employers undercutting wages in Britain. Shutting the door to international students won’t pay young people’s tuition fee debts, and ditching doctors from abroad won’t cut NHS waiting lists.

The Conservatives will instead foster division and discrimination in our workplaces and communities.

Once again, they are making false promises on immigration they can’t deliver. Instead of turning people against each other, ministers should take action now to deal with the real impact of migration.

They should stop the abuse of migrant labour to undercut pay and conditions, which would reduce numbers.

They should support communities with high levels of migration and they should set out a positive agenda for fair migration rules as part of the Brexit negotiations for a new relationship with the European Union.
