We need a Labour government to ensure Sure Start continues to change lives.

In the 1980s, Labour councils pioneered public nurseries; later the Workplace Nurseries campaign, which I chaired, persuaded the Tory Government to stop taxing workplace nurseries; and I established Lambeth's first workplace nursery.

The Labour Party took an unmistakable drubbing in the general election. But I wasn't surprised that Caroline Flint was one of the first to pick herself up and brush herself off.

That might sound like a counterintuitive, even risky, thing to say in the midst of a leadership and deputy leadership election, where only Labour Party members, supporters and affiliates can vote.
