Stories involving Ivan Lewis

U-turn on reporter ban plan

Ivan Lewis has denied that his call for rogue journalists to be "struck off" was a step towards a state regulated press. In his speech at the Labour Party Conference Mr Lewis called for reform and independent press regulation where journalists who commit "gross malpractice" can be punished. His words drew heavy criticism and Labour leadership yesterday distanced itself from his remarks. Mr Lewis later clarified that he did not want a state register for journalists.


Fifa in fresh bribery claims

Labour shadow minister Ivan Lewis has said he will write to Fifa, asking them to launch an investigation following claims by a whistleblower that two of its executive members had agreed deals worth $1.5m for their votes ahead of last week’s contest to host the World Cup.


Labour becoming a party of 'urban elite'

Ivan Lewis has said that Labour's rush to modernise and move forward has meant the party has ignored the way in which low and middle income earners felt over issues such as immigration, bankers' bonuses and welfare. The Shadow Culture Secretary also warned that too many voters felt the party "looks like and speaks on behalf of an urban metropolitan elite". In an article written for a book entitled Purple Labour, Mr Lewis said that Labour needed to understand "how large numbers of our fellow citizens feel removed from the cozy consensus of Britain's elite".
