Today Tony Blair has made another intervention into the countrywide Jeremy Corbyn meeting which is now dominating the Labour Party. Of course this intervention won’t change the dream of a Corbyn movement which will blast away opposition as it releases millions of non voters from the cocoon which Blairism installed, i.e. making labour electable destroyed… More Labour ignores Tony Blair at their own peril
As the Corbyn express keeps picking up speed he may be making a few changes to the transport system itself. He is proposing a mass campaign in order to make society safer for women. Some of the changes must be welcomed, policies such as a 24 hour police hotline for sexual assault and harassment and… More Corbyn’s proposals for women
Late last night on twitter I saw the hashtag #Muslimdragqueens, this was something which surprised me as it would anyone at seeing the hashtag at 1 o’clock in the morning. This piqued my interest and i went on it only to see what i was sadly expecting, the level of vitriol aimed at the programme… More Muslim drag queens
The criticisms of Jeremy Corbyn so far extend mainly to his domestic policy, specifically his plans to print more money to fund his future projects. However little attention has been paid to his foreign policy, and his support for causes and actions which could cause a great deal of damage around the world. Isolationism used… More Jeremy Corbyn’s foreign policy is the real danger
My ballot arrived in the post this weekend, I saw it staring at me as i arrived back from my camping trip. It seemed so ominous much like when you vote in a General election. You spend many months talking about ‘the thing’, writing about ‘the thing’, and when ‘the thing’ arrives it gives you… More Why I’ve voted for Liz Kendall
The Corbyn machine keeps going, and it seems he has taken an almost unassailable lead in the recent YouGov polls. The other candidates have been soporific to the point that just the mention of their names makes me want to go for a nap. Andy ‘i like football’ Burnham, Yvette ‘I’m always serious’ Cooper, and… More Electability isn’t enough It’s time to get after Corbyn
Free speech, the bedrock of a free intellectual society which questions all authority and power in all its guises. It is quite possibly the most difficult of all the ‘rights’ which we claim to possess and hold dear. This is because speech challenges us in our most sacred views, the beliefs we’ve held since before… More Free speech Isn’t a ‘fart in a lift’
Me and one Bradley Allsop are currently writing a public exchange together. He has just written his piece which can be found here, below is my response. While Mr Allsop may be correct in many things, on Mr Corbyn I cannot agree. The way Labour is going it could create a all out civil war… More My next response to Bradley Allsop
The Corbyn surge is a powerful wave of religious like fervour, this was exemplified yesterday with a 2,000 strong rally in the capital. Corbyn was late because he delivered a thumping speech on top of a fire truck, and another in a second room as the venue simply wasn’t big enough to accommodate the swathes… More Labour’s now fighting for the soul of the party, where are the centrists?
The accusation from Galloway was as sordid as ever, blood is cheap in Palestine and that the media will ignore the terrible terror which ended Baby Ali’s life in a fireball of hate and racism. Of course the accusations are nothing new, and many of those from Galloway’s corner expect universal coverage of everything in… More Is Palestinian blood ‘cheap’?
