The culture war Labour activists have been waging against the First World War commemorations

Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umuna points to this LabourList announcement of a speech by Dan Jarvis MP and calls it "important":  http://labourlist.org/2014/06/jarvis-to-call-on-labour-activists-to-take-part-in-wwi-commemorations/

And yet the two quotes from the speech seem entirely unremarkable.

What is Mr Jarvis going to say this evening that is so remarkable?

Is he going to call an end to the culture war Labour activists have been waging against the First World War commemorations (perhaps knowing how badly this is being received in the country)?

Will the speech be filmed and posted on YouTube so that we can all have a look?
