• As of this week, if your boss sexually harasses you, or sacks you for the colour of your skin, you will have fork out an eye-watering £1200 to have your case heard before an employment tribunal.

This week Left Foot Forward looked at some of the Tory myths around employment tribunal fees.

• One year on from the Olympics, in the first of a three-part series on the Olympic legacy, Shamik Das this week looked at the impact of the Games on Stratford and the surrounding areas.

Unfortunately in many of the key economic and social areas the benefits of the Olympic legacy are still to be felt in one of the capital’s poorest boroughs.

• This week Times comment editor Tim Montgomerie set out five proposals he believes the Tory party should adopt to win the next election.

At Left Foot Forward this week we also set out five policies we believe Labour should adopt to win in 2015.

This will be the last Left Foot Forward email until September. Enjoy the summer!

    Olympic legacy – debt.

    If you say you can get the Olympics for 2 billion and it ends up costing 11 bn, that’s fraud or incompetence.

    Which one is it? 9 bn of crap management, or a 9 bn fraud?
