We are going to of course abolish the House of Lords and replace it with a reformed second chamber in which there will be enhanced Scottish representation and it would have a constitutional role to protect the devolution settlement,” he said. Val McDermid: The Winter of Our Discontent The fan club for Val McDermid’s books just keeps growing – lapping up each new novel featuring either DCI Karen Pirie or Tony Hill and Carol Jordan. But whether you’re an old hand or new to McDermid’s work, there’s something special this Aug… The Financial Times summarised the book by saying "the former Labour Prime Minister resisted the usual pressures to produce an instant memoir. To the frustration of the casual reader (and perhaps the publisher) he resists the temptation to engage in much gossip either. What Brown does provide is some score-settling, more self-criticism than one might expect, and a sense of deep frustration that his long wait to become prime minister ended with him struggling to cope with the job and seeing his economic legacy come crashing down." [6] Labour MP Peter Mandelson reviewed the memoir in the Evening Standard, also praising Brown's book. [7] See also [ edit ] Mandelson, Peter (9 November 2017). "My Life, Our Times by Gordon Brown - review". Evening Standard . Retrieved 25 July 2019. He will introduce his new book, Permacrisis: A Plan To Fix A Fractured World. From the escalating climate crisis to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, increasing nationalism, surging inflation and worsening inequality, Brown and his co-authors, the economists Mohamed El-Erian and Michael Spence, found their recent conversations focussed on the rapidly increasing chaos in the world.

Blaming Blair alone for the breakdown in their relationship and how that poisoned their government, Brown never once considers whether his own behaviour might have had something to do with it. A senior New Labour figure was reminding me the other day of one of the many epic rows between the two men. A confrontation in the prime minister’s study climaxed with Brown slamming out of the room so violently that the door lost one of its hinges. You won’t find that incident here. Nor any of the other ugly episodes that made him such a nightmare as a partner for a prime minister.I cannot recommend it enough. Despite its hefty subject matter, Brown’s book zips along... The book is peppered with quotations and statistics, but never struggles under their weight... As a call for global cooperation and a clear explanation of many of the planet’s greatest challenges, Seven Ways to Change the World is certainly more convincing than the partial and inadequate moves made at the recent G7 meeting, and a more clear-sighted vision of the threats we face than anything yet managed by Keir Starmer.'

The party said its centrepiece would involve mass transfer of power from Westminster to the people and their local areas, with Starmer saying “the centre hasn’t delivered”.Viet Thanh Nguyen: Through the Eyes of a Vietnamese Refugee In 1975, at the age of four, Viet Thanh Nguyen fled from Vietnam with his family. Like so many others, these refugees from their war-torn country ended up in America. Fortunately, Nguyen is blessed with a stellar command of the written word and has produc…

Bridget Phillipson, the shadow education secretary, said on Sunday that Labour will make sure there is an elected second chamber, and the plan is for it to be done in the first term. “We will be consulting ahead of the manifesto around how we make that happen,” she added. Labour will consult on replacing what the party calls the “indefensible” House of Lords with an elected chamber as part of a 40-point plan written by Gordon Brown to overhaul the constitution, but stopped short of committing to its abolition in the manifesto. He is a shy man who was brought up “to contain, even suppress, my inner feelings in public”. That, he thinks, explains why “I failed to persuade the British people” not to throw him out in 2010. “No matter what I did to get my message across I often fell short.” He believes himself to be a politician “out of season” who did not master the revolution in communications and public expectations of leadership. Seven Ways to Change the World ... offers a mixture of moral arguments and policy solutions that carefully avoids political controversy. The research is undeniably impressive in its scope and detail. He clearly holds deep-seated moral views regarding the responsibilities of wealthy countries to less wealthy ones, combined with a sense that true justice is never adequately achieved, but needs constantly pushing for. Brown’s ability to move between economic and moral reasoning is a potent one.'When the Covid-19 pandemic swept across the globe in 2020, it created an unprecedented impact, greater than the aftermath of 9/11 or the global financial crisis. But out of such disruption can come a new way of thinking, and in this superb new book former UK prime minister Gordon Brown offers his solutions to the challenges we face in 2021 and beyond. In comments released ahead of the Brown report, Starmer made no mention of the House of Lords, instead concentrating on how Labour would bring about “real economic empowerment for our devolved government, the mayors, and local authorities”. This astonishing debut is a powerful and heartbreaking story about the love between a boy and his mother, about poverty a…

They shared their fears and frustrations. And the more they talked, the more they realised that while past mistakes had set the world on this bumpy course, a better path leading to a brighter future exists. Informed by their different perspectives, they sought a common goal: achievable solutions to fix our fractured world. This book is the product of that thinking.We have an unbalanced economy, which makes too little use of the talents of too few people in too few places,” he will say on Monday. “We will have higher standards in public life, a wider spread of power and opportunity, and better economic growth that benefits everyone, wherever they are. By setting our sights higher, wider, better, we can build a better future together.” Brown is credited with preventing a second Great Depression during his premiership, and in his current post as the UN Special Envoy for Global Education he continues to fight for greater fairness and equality across the globe. This livestreamed and in-person event is a unique opportunity to hear Gordon Brown talk about how we can break out of today’s permacrisis and better manage the future for the benefit of the many and not the few. He'll be in conversation with Guardian columnist, Jonathan Freedland and will also be answering your questions live.
