Political round-up – Iran, Unions and more Jeremy Corbyn

Blue_Moon2

Obama announces Iran deal – Republicans not impressed

Barak Obama has announced what he states is an ‘historic’ deal with Iran which, if implemented, put’s an end to Iran’s ability to produce a nuclear weapon. The Rose Garden announcement was aimed at congress and very cautious. Obama was keen to stress the consequences if Iran did not stick to strict inspection regimes within the deal. The likely Democrat nominee for the 2016 US Presidential election welcomed the deal. Her Republican rivals Jeb Bush, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have all opposed the deal stating it adds to rather than reduces the risk of tension in the middle east. Moderate Republican John McCain has also criticised the deal.and the response from Israel has been furious with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu making clear Israel do not agree and are not bound by this deal and calling it an ‘Historic Mistake’

Strike Plans

The Government have brought forward plans to impose a 50% turnout and 40% threshold to be passed before a legal strike can take place in England and Wales. On the face of it, the Government who brought in elected Police and Crime Commissioners many who were elected on turnout of less than 20%, now bringing this in looks quite astonishing. However David Cameron is confident he can shake that comparison off and the public will support this measure. The unions as you would imagine are very upset and they are laws all four of the Labour leadership candidates are agreed (for a change) they would look to repeal. It is a measure of the Conservatives current confidence that a measure as blatantly political as this can be considered.

Poll says Jeremy Corbyn in front

The New Statesman has released private polling leaked to it that suggests that the extremist candidate Jeremy Corbyn is leading the other three candidates on first preference votes in the Labour leadership contest. The trend also appears to be confirmed by a second poll seen by the Daily Telegraph.  The analysis states that many moderate supporters left the party under Ed Miliband and young members now joining, along with those affiliates through the unions, are much further to the left. This it appears may be giving Corbyn the edge. One Labour moderate Tom Harris, a former Glasgow MP, has accused the party of ‘putting it’s finger in it’s ears and loudly say I’m not listening’ when advised they need Tory voters back in order to stand a chance of winning in 2020. My main experience of the left is via Twitter, and Harris has got it spot on.
