Owned: Scrounging skinflint Tory Nigel Adams gets what he deserves

Labour has announced that, the next time the party is voted into office, it will extend the adult living wage to cover people aged 16 and 17. That means it will be £10 per hour.

Labour launches plan to attack political corruption

If there’s one area of British life that needs reform, it’s politics. Every day, Vox Political receives at least one comment from somebody saying that the system is corrupt and desperately needs an overhaul. Today (Tuesday, March 3), Labour is due to announce its plans for tackling this very issue. The trouble is, of course, that many people are saying Labour is part of the problem.
