FEATURED
My own short answer would be to say that voting sometimes achieves little but not voting always achieves less.

Do Britain and America allow their citizens democratic choice on foreign policy?
FEATURED
My answer is a fundamental NO and recent events make that very clear. Whoever is elected US President is pressurised into having a hawkish foreign policy by the deep state. My native Britain is effectively a US puppet in foreign policy terms and will...

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 UK Conservatives brought stability?
FEATURED
People who voted for the 'safe option' have got a chaotic hard-Brexit and the probable break up of the UK. We are turning into a poorer, smaller and more divided country all because our political elite tried to blame problems on the wrong t...

I'm out canvassing for the UK Labour Party Tomorrow.
This means knocking on doors and asking people to vote Labour. This also means the general public of east London have to listen to my political opinions instead of you horrible lot. 😜

Vote Labour as the only way to avoid a disastrous hard Brexit.
May is calling an early General Election for a reason. She knows she will lose support when the consequences of Brexit hit.

Who is the best manager in the English Premier League?
Poll See Poll Options
You can pick two. One from a big club and one from a smaller club whose manager overachieves. Give a reason for each if you like.

Left and right accuse each other of hypocrisy on foreign policy, shock!
And argue with each other even though they are both against War. This is how politicians win and people lose.

I am embarrassed to be British sometimes.
Its been quietly reported that the UK government suggested targeting the Russian military in Syria but luckily got overuled - and probably laughed at - by the rest of the G7. For all the talk of Trump being crazy (which he kinda is) its Boris Johnson...

Who is the best political journalist of this generation?
For me Glenn Greenwald wins hands down. Fearless, independent and with superb analysis. He is most famous for being the Guardian journalist behind the Edward Snowden revelations. He has also been heavily involved as a critical friend if Wikileaks a...

Is 'the left' acting 'hypocritically' to be anti-war?
This came up in a debate I was having on here. This was news, given that I and people of similar political bent have been consistently against military interventions. Nonetheless, the fact that some leftists are critical of Trump's airstrike has...

I have no idea what to make of Trump's airstrike.
Well its a slight lie. I'm confused and worried. Without wanting to sound like Donald Rumsfeld; there are known unknowns. Mostly though there are unknown unknowns. The Syrian War is so complicated and with so many atrocities committed on all si...

Who is your favourite candidate in the French Presidential Election and why?
Jean-Luc Mélenchon is who I want to win because he represents everything that I believe. Its a shame having two left candidates in one election pretty much ruins both of their chances of making the second round though. The mainstream socialists are d...

The Labour leader has been heavily criticised by the UK establishment but his free school meals plan is an excellent policy. Its nice to talk about the issues for once and his detractors are kidding themselves if they think that something like this w...

Are Trump and Brexit about freeing the rich to exploit the poor?
I have said so for some time. I accept many of the criticisms of the EU and of the Democratic establishment but I fear that people have voted for greater evils. 'Taking back control' of the EU has removed power from Brussels bureaucrats but...
