A commentary on Iran

The Iranian nation is one which continues to be paradoxical in the way it runs. The role that history adopted through Persian Nationalism, and Shi’ism play in defining Iran’s policies cannot be underestimated. The Iranian nation is modern, vibrant, and educated, with a rich history. They had an empire well before the British and its territory… More A commentary on Iran

Labour is Insane

I’m a new Labour party member, and only last week I wrote about the brave attempt of Harriet Harman of holding together a party which is in the middle of falling apart at the seams. I want to believe the best in my party, which my parents have voted for,which my grandad has  voted for, even… More Labour is Insane

The Labour party is in danger and no options to save it are easy

ISIS, the Frankenstein monster which no-one intended to create, is now running rampant in three countries, and has affiliates across the world. It emerged from an Al-Qaeda umbrella group, into a global force which is the cutting edge of Islamic Jihad. It has relegated Al-Qaeda to a second-rate organisation which is increasingly irrelevant, and is… More ISIS; the nightmare which isn’t going away

Corbyn is self-deprecating, noble in aim ( the quote on his website is “prioritising the needs of the poor and human rights for all”),  a veteran campaigner for human rights, and  an MP who was first elected in 1983 for the constituency of Islington North. He’s… More Trump and Corbyn; both can damage their parties
