You keep seeing and hearing it around this conference, the call for


unity. Unity has been in short supply between Jeremy Corbyn


supporters and opponents. When he got here today, late thanks to a


delayed train, he asked all concerned to bury the hatchet.

councils and above all need a Labour government and a society based on


social justice and equality. He also said the UK Government should borrow


more money to fund new infrastructure. As any homeowner who


has had a mortgage knows, taking on a huge debt can save you money in


the long run. We should not be afraid of debt or borrowing.


Fairness was the theme with policies to help people in work and bereaved


parents. More funding for social care, no more child bury these, a


better deal for commuters and fair deal at work. That is the sort of

There is plenty to ponder after a disappointing night in Dublin. I


thought we had to win the game last night because then you are allowed a


couple of mistakes between now and the end of the campaign. But I think


we have to go to Serbia now and win. But they will have to do it without


Gareth Bale who is suspended after being booked for a second time in
