Labour’s leadership hopefuls are busy letting us have the benefit of their wisdom about everything under the sun.  They carefully calibrate their sublime utterances with an eye to the electorate that will be elevating them or casting them out into the wilderness, where there will be weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. Or some such [...]

The forces of decency are slow to anger, but if you do manage to piss them off their power is awesome to behold. Despite the grim, continued bleakness of our current national crisis it has at least been gratifying to see the old, the young, the ‘I-don’t-care-about-politics-but-this-is-too-much’ brigade, all expressing their anger at the corruption [...]

In a statement this morning Repubblika, #occupyjustice and this website said they were angry and deeply concerned about what is going on in this country. It is clear to everyone that this pretence that everything is normal is really a cover-up for the institutional collapse of our democracy. The country needs a new vision for [...]

When there is no longer an excuse to twist facts and make the insane look reasonable, they place a deposit in the advanced justification of the punches they [...]
