Morning Star – Building local Activism & a local Voice

Morning Star – Building local Activism & a local Voice

Readers and Supporters Groups
Tony Kierney and Sandra Trotter reported from Dumfries RSG.

The group had been established in February 2014 and had now secured a Saturday readership of between eight and ten copies through a regular sale in the town centre. In at least one case these casual readers had been converted into regular daily readers. The group had produced promotional leaflets, held meetings on topical issues such as the Easter Rising and developed links with the Trades Union Council and the Film Centre. They had won both the local RMT branch and Unison to take out shares and taken the paper on to EIS and RMT picket lines. They had also had some excitement.

Recently they had secured the very speedy exit from Dumfries of the Conservative Scottish Secretary David Mundell by surrounding him with Morning Star sellers. Their proudest claim, however, was that of raising £1002 since their formation for the Star’s Fighting Fund.

Arthur West reported from Ayrshire RSG
Arthur stressed the importance of regular activity. The Ayrshire group been active for over five years and held regular monthly meetings. They sought to make these as attractive and accessible as possible and had found film shows particularly useful. Over 50 has attended the Tony Benn Life and Legacy showing earlier in the year in Irvine and sixteen come to the meeting with Esther Clark on Sanny Sloan MP earlier that week in Auchinleck. They also moved their paper sales around Ayrshire from Irvine to Kilmarnock.

Reporting: a Voice for the Movement
Zoe Streatfield, Morning Star Scottish Reporter
Zoe stressed that it was an exciting time to be a reporter for the Star in Scotland with increasing activity on the Left and with sections of the movement, Unite, RMT, EIS, all taking a far more proactive stance on issues. She had been allocated to the Corbyn campaign by the Star and was building up contacts. However, the bulk of Corbyn supporters still did not make the connection between their own politics and the readership of the Star and this remained a challenge for us.
Zoe appealed for details of Labour Movement events.

Understanding British Party Politics

Understanding British Party Politics


The 2010 general election caught many by surprise as it swept away the old certainties of two-party politics. But, as Stephen Driver shows in this new book, multi-party politics had already established itself as a feature of contemporary British political life. In recent years, both Labour and the Conservatives lost their iron grip on the electorate and the Liberal Democrats emerged as a significant and credible third party force across the country. In local, devolved and European elections, smaller parties from across the ideological spectrum have been adding to the political mix. This fluid and uncertain political scene provides a unique moment to explore the dynamics of UK political parties and the key challenges facing them as they grapple with the changing shape of politics in 21st century Britain. Key questions explored in this book include: How far have Labour and the Conservatives escaped from the shadow of Thatcherism? What turned the Liberal Democrats from a party of protest to a party of power? To what extent have green and far-right politics entered the political mainstream? What impact, if any, has devolution had on party lines across the UK? Moreover, at a time when trust in politics has hit an all time low, political parties are facing a crisis in confidence. Membership of mainstream parties has melted away, while support for pressure groups in areas such as the environment and human rights has grown. At the same time, parties rely on hired professionals to win support among the growing number of independently-minded voters. In understanding how political parties have become much more aggressive, professionally-driven organizations, this book points to real concerns about their capacity to engage and mobilise an increasingly critical and disenchanted electorate. British politics needs strong parties, but to regain voters'' trust, they need to change.

Non Bias Politics

Bon-unbiased books about politics?

I have 16 years trying to learn about the election Obama and McCain. I wondered what book I have read that it's fair if I can get a better idea of what to think / believe. Ideas?

There is no such thing. You have to read and see and then decide for yourself. Add C-SPAN, showing the Senate and House of Representatives meeting. Check the Library of Congress of legislation and laws on the two candidates. primary regulator is the closest you can get unbiased information. is the main source of information who or what is, for example, a written report on Barack Obama Obama is the primary authority. Bottom line, there is no easy or a book that will do for you. You do it for you and that takes time.

Press Bias and Politics: How the Media Frame Controversial Issues

Press Bias and Politics: How the Media Frame Controversial Issues


Kuypers charts the potential effects the printed presses and broadcast media have upon the messages of political and social leaders when they discuss controversial issues. Examining over 800 press reports on race and homosexuality from 116 different newspapers, Kuypers meticulously documents a liberal political bias in mainstream news. This book asserts that such a bias hurts the democratic process by ignoring non-mainstream left positions and vilifying many moderate and most right-leaning positions, leaving only a narrow brand of liberal thought supported by the mainstream press. This book argues that the mainstream press in America is an anti-democratic institution. By comparatively analyzing press reports, as well as the events that occasioned the coverage, Kuypers paints a detailed picture of the politics of the American press. He advances four distinct reportorial practices that inject bias into reporting, offering perspectives of particular interest to scholars, students, and others involved with mass communication, journalism, and politics in the United States.

I am currently working within banking and financial services. My MA was in international Politics and Human Rights and for my dissertation I studied US-China relations. I am keen to keep pursuing my academic interest however not at the cost of my career within banking and financial services.

Please give me advice on how I can do this? I know that writing articles is one idea and doing a PhD is another idea. I was wondering, is it possible to be a part time academic?
