Category: Ultra-safe Labour seat

Geography: Greater London. Part of the Islington council area.

Main population centres: Tufnell Park, Archway, Finsbury Park, Highbury.

Profile: A compact, densely-populated inner-city seat in North London, the smallest in the country by area. While there is some gentrification this this seat covers some of the most deprived, troubled and crime-ridden parts of Islington, inclusing the huge Andover Estate. It includes HMP Holloway and Arsenal`s Emirates Stadium. Islington is a particular young area, and has the highest proportion of unmarried people in the country.

Politics: The constituency has been safely Labour since the 1930s, though the then sitting MP Michael O`Halloran defected to the SDP in 1981 and fought the seat as an independent in 1983, having lost the selection for the SDP nomination.


Current MP
JEREMY CORBYN (Labour) Born 1949, Chippenham. Educated at Adam`s Grammar School and North London Polytechnic. Former trade union organiser. Haringey councillor 1974-1983. First elected as MP for Islington North in 1983. Leader of the Labour Party since 2015. Jeremy Corbyn spent over thirty years on Labour`s backbenches, a stalwart member of the left-wing Campaign Group and Labour`s most rebellious MP. In the 2015 he was the left`s sacrificial candidate for the Labour leadership, reportedly because it was his turn. In the event he was not just competitive in the contest, but won a landslide victory.

  1. As high as 50% – and his parliamemtary party was more moderate than todays

    All suggests death penalty isn’t a Left/Right issue

  2. Well in that sense yes, but no Labour MP has voted for hanging since the early 80s, and the only SNP MP ever to do so was Donnie Stewart, the former leader. No Welsh Nationalist has ever done so.

  3. When was the last time we even had a vote on the issue?

  4. indeed, capital punishment isn’t an issue of left or right

  5. I thought SNP MP Andrew Welsh supported the death penalty as I was told did Labour MP Owen Jones – although rather tellingly neither voted for it in the Commons when they had the opportunity – 94 in Welsh’s case and 98 I think in Jones – which I believe was the last time it was debated (although that debate resulted in it being abolished for high treason)

  6. The fact that no single Labour MP – and as Barnaby says that has been the case for many Parliaments – support something the majority of the British working class are in favour of perhaps demonstrates the current disconnect between the rulers and those they rule over

    Also i can’t think of one national newspaper that endorses the reintroduction of the death penalty – maybe the Daily Mail or the Express?

  7. There has never been a Labour MP called Owen Jones in my lifetime. Not sure who you mean.

    I am quite sure Andrew Welsh has never voted for capital punishment.

  8. Not yet at least 😉

  9. Barnaby’s right (and Tim J’s wrong in his claim).

    Just checked – in fact there were 14 votes to reintroduce the death penalty during the Thatcher era and she voted for every one of them!

    To answer PT’s Q specifically (assuming he meant the Commons and not the people):

    The most recent vote to reintroduce was defeated in 1994, by 386 to 183 MPs.

    There was a Private Members Bill to do so in 2013 – after Chope and Davies slept outside the office to hand in as many as possible before others – but this was withdrawn.

    The closest recent vote to reintroduce was in 1983: 344 to 266 MPs in favour. On that basis it’d take a Tory majority of over 180 for a vote to succeed in the House (in fact 200+ as newer MPs aren’t as in favour).

    Most Tory Leaders (just) have supported the death penalty, as did Maggie and Hague. Michael Howard did so for 35 years, but admitted to changing his mind as Home Sec.

    All DUP Leaders have supported it.

    Some other stats – and useful pub quiz answers:

    The last man executed in the UK was in Liverpool in August 1964 (where a gallows continued to exist until the 1990s).

    The last man sentenced to death in the British Isles was in the Isle of Man in 1993.

    It was effectively abolished there on 1st November 2006.

    High Court Judges still carry the black cap. The last to don one – as a rather cruel joke – was HHJ Wickham in Liverpool in around 2000. Known as “Wack’em Wickham” he’d clearly had enough of the repeat offender before him that day and decided to do so as a shock tactic. I think the infamous Lord Denning was the Judge who wore the cap the most often.

    PS Barnaby – not sure either Chalker or Enoch’s votes were unusual. She was regarded as a bit of a Wet but her Christian beliefs were why she was pro and also why supported overseas aid. I think Enoch just believed the State should not have that power over the citizen. But I realise people are often surprised when they discover Enoch’s views on nuclear weapons and war and Alan Clark’s on animal rights.

  10. WW – to answer that: papers don’t have policies, but at various times as recently as 2003-2013, the Sun, Star, Express have supported and had petitions for the reintroduction for terrorists or child abusers.

  11. ‘the Sun, Star, Express have supported and had petitions for the reintroduction for terrorists or child abusers.’

    I’d be surprised if the The Sun has ever called for the introduction of the death penalty

    I thought it was common knowledge that Rupert Murdoch was a long-standing opponent of the practice, although that does sound at odds with many other things he dislikes

    Walt’s right though – in 1994 more than half of the Tory MPs who actually voted casted their ballot for reintroduction

    There’s barely more than 50 MPs in the Commons today (all from the coalition) that support bringing back the rope so I think the likelihood of it coming back in my lifetime is extremely unlikely

  12. “The fact that no single Labour MP – and as Barnaby says that has been the case for many Parliaments – support something the majority of the British working class are in favour of perhaps demonstrates the current disconnect between the rulers and those they rule over”

    This is less a case of disconnect and more a case of what you expect from politicians.

    If you expect an MP to blindly and without question parrot the views of his/her constituents (no matter how nutty) then yes there is a huge disconnect but that not meant to be how our democracy works. The idea is that the public have lives of their own and thus rather than expecting them to have an opinion on everything they elect somebody they deem of sound judgment to scrutinise things and make decisions on their behalf. So rather than trying to get everybody in a seat to read a five hundred page report on the effects of withdrawing from Euratom they elect their MP to do it for them.

    And indeed when it comes to the dry subjects this mostly works since the public aren’t interested, its when it comes to stuff like the death penalty where every Tom, Dick and Harry has an opinion despite knowing literally nothing about the topic whereas anybody who has done even some cursory reading on the issue would have to come out against it, putting aside the moral issues, the execution of innocents, the expense etc the death penalty just doesn’t work, the evidence is very clear on this that it does nothing to deter or reduce crime rates especially for the very serious crimes people want it reintroduced for.

  14. I refer fellow posters to the list above this post.

  15. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/25/lord-sugar-calls-jeremy-corbyn-resign-student-debt-lie/

    Ignoring what any of us thinks of Lord Sugar, this wasn’t why I posted this.

    What I found incredible was the video of Shadow Minister promising to wipe out debt during the election campaign.

    Also, Labour supporters are claiming – technically correctly, depending on which statement of Corbyn’s you are referring to – that JC didn’t promise to wipe out student debt. But quite simply, Labour must have known that the comments they made would be taken that way by the vast majority of people, especially young people who didn’t hesitate to share this with each other, and their parents etc. I certainly took that to be the case, and I follow politics / politicians etc a lot more than the average guy.

    So it is clear, even without the videos of shadow ministers, that the country was very publicly misled on this, which is quite serious during an election campaign IMO.

  16. Bollocks. partisan crap as always

  17. As Rivers pointed out only 17% of people believed labour would wipe student debt according to yougov

  18. Matt, the 17% figure came in response to a “how do you interpret this statement: [what Jeremy Corbyn said]” question. It’s tenuous to infer that 17% of people, at the time they voted, believed Labour would wipe student debt, because most people will have not picked up the information directly from reading what Jezza said, they will have picked it up second- or even third-hand from online and offline communications with friends. It’s like a game of Chinese whispers – the more hands the message passes through the more it gets corrupted.

    But this isnt really Labour’s fault at all – this is just humans being humans rather than perfect, information-conserving motherboards. Overall the media is fussing over nothing. The only reason the story has dragged on like it has is because the silly season has started and there isn’t that much else for politcal hacks to report on.

  19. A bit of not-that-important anecdotal evidence: both my Tory-voting father and his Labour-voting fiancee were of the understanding that Labour had pledged to wipe the debt. Take from that what you will.

  20. I took part in that Yougov poll, and answered something like “reduce the debt” rather than “wipe out the debt”.

    Aside from anything else, the poll is presented with the benefit of hindsight after the backtracking/clarification (depending on your political slant) of the past week or two.

    I wouldn’t therefore seize on this 17% figure with any sense of glory that there was no “promise”. Had the poll taken place in the days/weeks immediately following the NME interview and press coverage around it, I suspect the 17% figure would have been an awful lot higher.

  21. I had one friend approach me and ask if this was true as he was under the impression it was and I asked my gf who voted Labour for the first time and she said she never believed that Corbyn planned to eradicate the debt. I would say my friend is more politically engaged than my gf despite having to live with a nerd like me.

  22. I’m sceptical that this was even common knowledge prior to the election, in all my time campaigning (often in student dominated areas) and all my time on social media and all my time talking about politics with my friends (all in their early 20’s) the issue of Labour supposedly writing of all past debt never came up once, as I said before I wasn’t even aware of Corbyn’s commentson the subject and I’m a complete saddo who follows politics incessantly.

    So I’m going to paraphrase Polltroll when he says that
    “It’s tenuous to infer that 17% of people, at the time they voted, believed Labour would wipe student debt”
    I agree I’d say it was even less, I wish Yougov had just straight up asked “did you believe Lab would write of past debt prior to the election?” and I imagine the figure would be even lower than 17%. Irony being I imagine the partisan splits would probably show that contrary to Tory claims that there are millions of betrayed Labour voting young people and their parents it would be mostly Tory voters who “claim” they thought this was Labour policy simply cos they’re parroting their own sides line.

  23. The yougov poll age break down seems to suggest older voters albeit only a bit more believed that what corbyn meant was to abolish debt. Which would either suggest that older voters like PollTrolls father and fiance believed that corbyn meant he would abolish the debt marginally more than younger people or that Rivers is right and its just partisan lines as we know age is now the biggest determining factor

  24. Significant internal Labour news today, Labours ruling NEC approved some changes, firstly the compromise on the “McDonnell Amendment” which set to lower the nominations threshold from MP’s in future leadership contests from 15% to 5%, instead the NEC approved a reduction to 10% which would still easily be achieved by any left winger in todays PLP.

    Secondly the NEC approved the introduction of 4 new members to the NEC, one new member representing USDAW (to account for their growing membership) and three more “members reps” directly elected by the membership. Assuming the pro Corbyn slate win these three new members (which the last NEC election very much suggests they would) then it would firmly tilt the balance on the NEC in the lefts favour.

    The proposed changes will now go to a vote at conference where they are expected to pass, this is very significant, the Labour party is now very much in the hands of the membership, so long as the they remain broadly to the left the left will remain in power, if Progress want to take back control they’ll need to take the membership with them.

  25. Easily achievable is difficult to measure. Its difficult to know who will nominate who until we have a leadership election which isnt happening any time soon.

    I didn’t know USDAW didn’t have a rep. I’m pleased to see a booming service sector is being met with increasing numbers joining the union. Particularly in the gig economy. USDAW are a broadly moderate union so should be interesting. I assume they will take UCATTs seat now theyve merged with Unite.

    Pleased to see greater representation for members. If the moderates do succeed control of the party at least they will have done it by going through the members

  26. Matt
    “Easily achievable is difficult to measure. Its difficult to know who will nominate who”

    Somewhat true but past precedent shows that MP’s tend to nominate along partisan lines, the Blairites nominate a Progress big wig, the soft left nominate a Tribune big wig etc
    The point was that so long as the openly Corbynista MP’s nominate another Corbynista they’d get onto the ballot, wouldn’t require any lent votes, it wouldn’t even require the nominations of the “pragmatic left” there are enough fervently Corbynista MP’s now to manage 10%
