  • So what now?

    That seems to be the question everyone was asking at a Labour Party Conference, which was noticeable for the number of people on both sides of the party divide who just seemed exhausted from the internal battle that has been raging pretty much since early summer 2015. It is this question that Jeremy Corbyn sought […] The post So what now? appeared first on MHP.

  • Clinton Trump and the politics of unpredictability

    Seth Linden, President of MHP’s North America partner Dukas Linden, was among the millions of Americans watching Monday’s first presidential campaign TV debate. Here he gives his analysis of what – if anything – has changed. If Brexit has taught us anything it is to plan for the unexpected. Despite criticisms of Donald Trump’s performance in […] The post Clinton Trump and the politics of unpredict...

  • A damp squib on the Mersey?

    With 24 hours left to run, it looks like Labour Party conference this year will turn out not to be the scene of more Labour blood-letting after all. Following a bitter summer leadership battle characterised by accusations of anti-semitism, internet abuse and bricks through windows, many MPs, party staff and long-time delegates travelled to Liverpool […] The post A damp squib on the Mersey? appeare...

  • Diane Abbott’s address to Labour Conference: Aligning a “re-nationalisation” agenda with today’s NHS

    A serial rebel for nearly 30 years on Labour’s backbenches (aside from a short-lived brief as Shadow Public Health minister under Ed Miliband), Diane Abbott today addressed Labour Party Conference at a time when the health service is calling for bright new ideas to ensure its sustainability. Much of Ms Abbott’s speech cut right to […] The post Diane Abbott’s address to Labour Conference: Aligning ...

  • Seeking solutions for social care

    The latest report from the Kings Fund, Social care for older people: home truths, is the latest in a long line of reports and commentary outlining the stark reality that “the social care system in its current form is struggling to meet the needs of older people”.  However, regular rhetoric about the problems social care […] The post Seeking solutions for social care appeared first on MHP.

  • Jeremy Corbyn and the slow death of the mainstream media

    At the Labour Party conference this week Jeremy Corbyn has managed to do something his predecessor Tony Blair tried but could never quite achieve. Alastair Campbell wanted to by-pass the “mainstream media” and allow Labour’s most successful leader to speak directly to the people who loved him, the voters. It never happened. Gordon Brown tried […] The post Jeremy Corbyn and the slow death of the ma...

  • Five lessons from Chinese G20 summit

    MHP’s partner agency in China, North Head kept a close eye on the recent G20 negotiations in Hangzhou. Managing Director John Russell, gives his assessment of some of the most significant outcomes – and what they may mean for business keen to work more closely with China. Corporate Tax and Transfer Pricing: In future years China […] The post Five lessons from Chinese G20 summit appeared first on M...

  • Don’t ignore Labour’s backbench army

    Another year, probably four, of Corbyn. Of endless, pointless rallies. Of failure to compromise with the electorate. Of competence vying with policy for the negative headlines. And of businesses wondering how, when and whether to ever engage with Labour again. First things first. Although many moderate members may call it a day at this point, […] The post Don’t ignore Labour’s backbench army appea...

  • A fractured Opposition: where are the credible voices on health and how will they come together?

    Turbulent times within the Labour Party have given rise to Opposition voices from select committees, Labour rebels, and the minor parties.  So who will form the opposition to the Government, and can they work together? Former Health Minister, Norman Lamb, has re-established himself since the last election as a respected health service reformer and is […] The post A fractured Opposition: where are ...

  • The Party’s Over?

    This weekend the Labour ‘family’ heads to Liverpool for their annual conference, preceded tomorrow by the announcement of the leadership election result. In this scenario, ‘family’ is better understood as a reference to Albert Square’s Mitchells than Virginia’s Waltons, say, as reports claim that Labour Party staffers have been issued guidance on how to respond […] The post The Party’s Over? appea...

  • Back to the future: Lansley on the legacy of his reforms

    Last night, NHS Providers took us back to the heady days of 2010-12, inviting Rt Hon Lord Lansley to deliver their annual lecture, focusing on what he believes are the legacy of his reforms. The audience – mostly NHS Trust CEOs – welcomed an academic debate, yet you could feel the tension in the room […] The post Back to the future: Lansley on the legacy of his reforms appeared first on MHP.

  • Polls prompt Merkel shift on migrants

    Regional election results have in the past never played a major role in the life of Angela Merkel. This has changed over the past two weeks. Following painful defeats for the Chancellor in Mecklenburg Vorpommern (see When Meck-Pomm spells trouble for Merkel) and Berlin, where her Christian Democrats party again scored less than 20% of the […] The post Polls prompt Merkel shift on migrants appeared...

  • Skittles not falling for Trump Jr

    Skittles last night became the latest brand thrust into the limelight as collateral damage from the chimpanzee-with-a-machine gun Donald Trump campaign. Donald Trump Jr – who calls to mind the bully from an 80s teen movie set in an exclusive private school – tweeted the meme: “If I had a bowl of skittles and I […] The post Skittles not falling for Trump Jr appeared first on MHP.

  • Double standards surround Hillary’s health

    With the first US presidential debate only weeks away, it was not the weekend Hillary Clinton would have hoped for.  A video surfaced, showing the Democratic presidential candidate collapsing as she left a 9/11 memorial service. The 68-year-old revealed that in addition to suffering from allergies, as had been originally stated by her team, it […] The post Double standards surround Hillary’s healt...

  • Germany’s House of Cards

    This year is shaping up to be an interesting one on many fronts. In the political sphere the agenda has been led by the UK Brexit referendum and the US presidential election. The general angst post-EU referendum has died down and is now in a “what is going to happen next?” holding pattern. The US […] The post Germany’s House of Cards appeared first on MHP.

  • NHS Expo 2016: The NHS leads the world, it’s time we told people about it

    Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the annual NHS Health and Innovation Expo, held this year in Manchester.  It was difficult not to get caught up in the sheer ambition of so many of the speakers and innovations on show, but the event was overshadowed by a perception that the NHS is too […] The post NHS Expo 2016: The NHS leads the world, it’s time we told people about it appeared first on...

  • The Grammar School Revolution

    Many careers have been killed walking into 10 Downing Street because of a stray piece of paper. An armed raid had to be brought forward in 2009 after Bob Quick, then head of the Metropolitan Police’s counter terrorism squad, unwittingly showed the world’s media a secret memo as he went to brief the Prime Minister. […] The post The Grammar School Revolution appeared first on MHP.

  • Silly season, simplicity, and a lesson in subtle messaging

    It’s the end of the summer – long known as silly season in PR land – the nights are drawing in, and half the office has the post-holiday blues. And what an uncertain summer it’s been. From the ever-unravelling saga of Brexit, and the apparent implosion of the Labour Party, to the weight of expectation […] The post Silly season, simplicity, and a lesson in subtle messaging appeared first on MHP.
