#GrenfellTower – act against system fail

Grenfell Tower in flames

The anger mixed with compassion over the Grenfell Tower fire is threatening to turn into a conflagration of its own as the estimated number of dead soars. The wave of support by local communities is in sharp contrast to the cruelty that now dominates a system, where the few luxuriate in obscene wealth while the […]

Brexit can wait. Democracy can’t. Demand

Brexit can wait. Democracy can’t. Demand new election now!

The popular social movement that swept Jeremy Corbyn to within touching distance of Downing Street should be sustained until the illegitimate, Tory-DUP government is removed from office and another election held. Theresa May has no mandate to rule, having lost her overall majority by gambling on an unnecessary general election. The aim was to shore […]

After London Bridge terror, Corbyn offer...

Armed police at London Bridge

If they demonstrate one thing above all else, the horrific terror attacks in London and Manchester are proof that policies pursued by successive governments have failed. Now it’s time to give Jeremy Corbyn’s approach a chance. Since 2000, there have been no fewer than 13 pieces of legislation related to the “war on terror”. Yet […]

Get ready to defend a Corbyn government ...

Corbyn speaking in Reading

If Labour wins next week’s general election, a Jeremy Corbyn government would come under immediate assault from the political establishment, the secret state and the financial markets to name just a few enemies of the people.

New democratic constitution key to Corbyn’s plans

You couldn’t argue with most of Labour’s manifesto drafted by Jeremy Corbyn and his team.

PM Theresa May is married to capital – literally

PM Theresa May is married to capital – literally. Her husband Philip is a ‘relationships manager’ working for Capital Group, a global financial services company. With $1.39 trillion in assets under management, Capital ranks among the world’s oldest and largest investment management organisations. Measure that against the UK’s $2.9 trillion GDP for 2016 and you […]

Backlash against Corbyn victory warning

Croydon TUC's May Day march through Croydon town centre

“The money is there – we need it,” – that was the uncompromising message from Ted Knight, chair of the Croydon Assembly. “Let the 6th richest pay the price. Let the Sunday Times Rich List open up their bank accounts.” Knight joined other speakers at Croydon’s Ruskin House in a late May Day celebration after […]

Election 2017: Let’s campaign for REAL democracy and back Corbyn

The June 8 General Election is aimed at giving the Tories an absolute grip on power as they struggle with the dramatic economic, political and constitutional consequences of last year’s vote to leave the European Union. As the old politics breaks up, ruling elites everywhere are moving towards autocracy and even dictatorship. May is following […]
