Stories involving Tessa Jowell

People will get the power to own and run local services including council housing and SureStart centres, under Labour's "mutual manifesto" plans to be outlined today.


A survey of 758 leaflets produced by the three main parties has shown that Gordon Brown was only featured on 12% of Labour posters, and notably has been excluded by Yvette Cooper, Tessa Jowell, and Sadiq Khan.


Former ministers and key aides have criticised Gordon Brown's time as prime minister, saying it was frustrating and decisions were not made quickly enough, in the Radio 4 series The Brown Years. Alan Johnson has admitted that at times "there were big problems over at Number 10" and the former head of the Number 10 Policy Unit has said "there was a year which was frankly awful".


Unforeseen problems mean the London Olympics budget is "worryingly tight", according to the Commons public accounts committee.


Labour leadership frontrunner David Miliband and former Olympics minister Tessa Jowell have called for the BBC to be made into a mutual in order to give licence payers more say in how the corporation is run.


The chief executive of the Olympic delivery authority has resigned from his post. David Higgins, who has overseen construction for London 2012, is leaving to run Network Rail.
