Are you worried about Brexit?
FEATURED
The news just seems to get worse. The UK economy is slowing compared to the EU and the Conservative politicians we send to Brussels only only now coming to terms with the complexity of the negotiating process. They still seem to harbour an exaggerate...

Does Naomi Klein have the best analysis of what Trump represents and how he came about?
FEATURED
As oppose to what he does, which is less interesting and significant IMO. Lots of other good points in the video.

Is no enough?
FEATURED
I have just finished Naomi Klein's new book 'No is not enough' and it is a comprehensive and compelling account of Trump and the conditions which enabled him to become US President. I read 'No Logo' when it came out and twent...

Anyone still believe the Brexit fantasy of taking back control?
FEATURED
People were promised £350 million a day more on the NHS and the NHS continues to be cut. Now May and Hammond admit that there is no guarantee of significant drops in immigration. So the signature promises have been publicly conceded before the negoti...

Have the Trumps been played by the Russians?
I'm pretty sure that they have. One thing that I actually believe from Trump Jr's account is that nothing was revealed at the meeting with the Russian lawyer. If you assume that Russia was behind the DNC hack, why would they choose to leak ...

What is plausible deniability?
Donald Trump Jnr gets contacted by a shady Russian lawyer. When asked if he wants info on Hillary Clinton (from Russia) he says hell yes. We know this from his emails which apparantly he didn't even have to release and the emails incriminate him...

Is Trump conrolled by the fossil fuel lobby?
The rest of the G20 (all 19 others) rebuke Trump and continue with the Paris deal. http://edition.cnn.com/2017/07/08/europe/g20-merkel-trump-communique/index.html The Paris deal itself is nowhere near strong enough but is at least a step forward. ...

Well done to the Lions
It is an anti-climax to have a draw but I think it is tremendous achievement to tie the series. Its a strong All Blacks side and nobody gave the Lions a chance. The Lions usually lose and when the win its more often than not against a weak Southern ...

What is your favourite emoji and why?
😜 wins every time for me. It has a special place in my heart because to me it means 'I am taking the piss out of you but don't cry'. SW makes me feel like that a lot. 😜

Is shifting the Overton Window the most important thing in politics?
By Overtone Window, I mean terms of debate and what can reasonably be contested in mainstream politics. Two years ago in the UK general election, both major parties accepted the terms of austerity economics. Immoral and economically illiterate though...

Congratulations to the Lions.
I know it was against 14 men but any win over the All Blacks is a huge achievement. Congratulations also to Steve Hansen for showing class in accepting the result and a borderline contentious red card for SBW. It makes the third test interesting. I ...

Would getting rid of Trump make America better for its citizens in material terms?
Yes he is loud and abysmal but his policy program (as Paul Krugman has said) is standard right Republican + corruption + incompetence. President Pence won't feed your children and President Clinton won't stop drone strikes or inequality. It...

Any thoughts on the Lions Tour. (Rugby)
Personally I think the Lions will lose all three tests. They are not a bad team but are nowhere near good enough for the All Blacks. The Northern Hemisphere has got closer to the South in recent years though that is more down to the decline of South ...

Have you ever known a politician speak at a music festival?
Jeremy Corbyn addresses Glastonbury and gets rousing cheer from the crowd. This is the leader of the UK Labour Party. There is no way any other UK politician in recent history would have been able to carry this off. The bearded 68 year old has rea...

Do the Democrats need a new strategy?
I have just found out about the poor results for the party in the special elections and it seems obvious that in spite of everything that Trump has done, there is little or no sign that the Dems are about to win big on the back of it. The Republica...
