      Without a hint of irony one of the stars of the Biased Broadcasting Corporation, Nick Robinson, says that when Boris Johnson uses Twitter or Facebook to get his message out to the people he is using "propaganda like a dictator".

      Thatcher Stole Essential Industries – Time to Take Them Back

      by

      In every UK and Scottish election since 1997 I have helped to write socialist manifestos. Many of the policies which were dismissed as extreme or unrealistic by the grey suited middle class ‘mainstream’ have gone on to become ‘mainstream’ solutions to societal problems.

      So, let me get this right. Germany wants to take control of Northern Ireland and keep them permanently in the EU. However, Northern Ireland is an integral part of our union and will never be allowed to be sacrificed to the likes of Angela Merkel. Therefore, it is cut and dried, there has to be NO DEAL!

      Betraying Kurds is the American Way

      by

      US President Donald Trump is being roundly condemned by bi-partisan voices in Washington for “selling out” the Kurds in Syria. But the histrionics declaring that America’s honour has been sullied by Trump are, in many ways, absurd, given the long history of US double-crossing the Kurds.

      Don’t Close Down Private Schools – Open Them Up to All Children

      by

      The Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn has earned the right to throw off the Red Tory tag which for the last two decades has accurately summed up their policies and vision. Corbyn and his closest aides have dragged that party, often screaming and kicking, back to the radical anti-capitalist roots from which it was born.
