 Just one week after announcing his key budget tax rise, Chancellor Philip Hammond has been forced into a humiliating backdown. 

Hammond’s credibility has been “shredded”, said Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell.

Jeremy Corbyn demanded to know at Prime Ministers questions today how the government planned to fill the “black hole” in its plans. The money was intended to be used to support the desperately underfunded social care sector.

It was great to see journalist and author, Owen Jones, back in Thanet supporting Labour's KCC election campaign.  Popping in at the office first for a chat about the campaign and general news and views, Owen then headed off with local members and campaign agent, Kaz Peet, for a walkabout in different parts of Thanet.  Keen to talk to people about Brexit, a UKIP council and views on local and national politics, Owen is one of those journalists making sure he's out of the Westminster bubble and talking to real people.

Both Karen and Queen of Campaign Selfies, Raushan are at the Newington Road office pretty much every day, ready to be out and about with teams of activists knocking on people's doors.  Listening to people's concerns and anxieties, especially in the face of ever more vicious cuts and austerity measures is depressing but enlightening.  Labour are determined to offer an alternative that offers hope, fairness, homes, jobs and greater prosperity for all not simply the few fat cats at the top.
