Andrew “Defeat NATO” Murray

What to do if your election campaign is in trouble? I know! Bring in a man who called for the defeat of NATO!

But let us not forget that the victims of NATO are not in Europe. They are in the Middle East. They are in South Asia. And our common humanity and our [...]

John McDonnell v. The System

Earlier today, John McDonnell assured us that he only wants to “transform the system”, not “bring it down”.

Uh huh.

Jeremy Corbyn Praising Viva Palestina

Here’s another scene from Jeremy Corbyn’s political career. Filmed in March 2010, he sings the praises of Viva Palestina.

Viva Palestina was George Galloway’s Hamas support operation in those years. He could not have made the purpose of the Viva Palestina “aid” convoys more explicit, from the very first one in March 2009. [...]

Another Scene from Corbyn’s Swamp

If you really don’t like antisemitism, there are some people you should challenge. Or, at the very least, avoid.

Corbyn has stated on record that he was “not happy” with police or security services operating a “shoot to kill” policy in the event of a terror attack.
In November 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was asked by [...]

Last night: A Corbyn supporter’s response.

This is not – because you were probably wondering – a parody account.

Here’s Corbyn’s own response to the Copeland result

and a rather different perspective from Dan Hodges.

Goodbye to Tristram

This is cross-post by Phil BC
It was nice for Stoke-on-Trent to make the news for something other than footy and the BNP. Less nice that it was my constituency party and my MP at the centre of it. Yes, as the world and its uncle now knows, Tristram Hunt is resigning the Stoke-on-Trent Central seat to take [...]

What’s missing?

Guest post by Sackcloth & Ashes
On 3rd December the Leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition delivered a speech in Prague to the Party of European Socialists Council. The text contains a reference to the host nation’s troubled history, and particular the traumas the Czechs experienced during the 20th century.
But there’s one episode in the Czech [...]
