Stop the War: Shame on You [updated]

An agitated man, reportedly a Syrian refugee, here takes issue with Stop the War Coalition’s demonstration against Trump’s recent air strike in Syria.
But Chris Nineham, a StWC founder member, doesn’t seem keen for this voice to be heard. ‘Keep chanting’, he urges his distracted followers.
Update Here Hassan Akkad, the Syrian who tried to argue with [...]

Jeremy Corbyn and Anas Altikriti

Jeremy Corbyn and Anas Altikriti will speak at a “Stop the War Coalition” rally in October. How appropriate, for they make a fine pair.
Starting with Mr Corbyn’s “friends” Hamas. Here’s Mr Altikriti, a veteran Muslim Brotherhood devotee, posting a happy moment with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in 2012.

Andrew Murray writes defense of Stoppers

Apparently reacting to the wave of critical attention after Stop the War Coalition chair Jeremy Corbyn was elected head of the Labour party, current chair Andrew Murray has written Stop the War and its critics. The book is published by Manifesto Press, which also published Murray’s page-turner The Empire and Ukraine.
You can read Murray’s introduction [...]

Corbyn friend Andrew Murray: we are much worse than the terrorists

Here’s another scene from Jeremy Corbyn’s career which illuminates the strange and nasty darkness he so loves.
It’s the middle of January 2015. The terrorist attacks on Charlie Hebdo, a Jewish supermarket and police officers in Paris less than two weeks earlier are on people’s minds. The horror is hard to comprehend. Pain [...]

Stop the War figures out Islamic State

As you have seen, the “Stop the War Coalition” has had to resort to airbrushing several dangerous truths from its website as the warmongers’ assault on the vanguard gathered strength.
It’s a survival measure, comrades. Regrettable, sure, but some flanks are dispensable in a fight like this.
Still, not to worry. A number of the [...]

Stopper Andrew Murray’s Good Wars

Andrew Murray is Chair of the “Stop the War Coalition” (StWC). So of course he is fond of war. Provided it is jihad.
This puts him right in line with his stopper comrades Chris Nineham and John Rees – this is the cause, proudly proclaimed, not a deviation.
Here he is at a “No to [...]

Peter Tatchell’s supporters?

Since Peter Tatchell’s split with the Stop the War Coalition, John Rees is

Stopper Lies and “Heroic Resistance”

Stung by people seeing it for what it is, the “Stop the War Coalition” has reached for one of its favourite tools: lies.
They can be seen in this press release. Let’s look at the first statement on the list.
1. The STWC has never supported the Assad regime. Just as we never supported the Taliban, [...]

Stopper Chris Nineham: Back the Terrorists

Calling the “Stop the War Coalition” an “anti-war” movement is offensive, stupid, and stone dead wrong.
It is more important than ever to note this, since Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour rolled out the “anti-war” line just yesterday, making it too a party of lies.
Let’s look at prominent stopper Chris Nineham, the face of the movement in [...]

Who said it?

Stop the War or Islamic State?
I’m ashamed to say I only got six out of ten right. And I probably pay more attention to this stuff than most.
