The R Word

See it, say it, sorted. What makes it any different when it comes to racial abuse? Over the last few weeks, the Conservative party have deliberated who would make the best Prime Minister for our country. In a time of great uncertainty, who will be able to handle the Brexit instability? Who will be able to act accordingly for the ongoing climate catastrophe? Importantly, who will best represent the people?

Why just “Friends of Israel”?

Why just "Friends of Israel"? Whats wrong with the rest of the world? Stop the world I want to get off In the UK, since the days of Thatcher, have been told that Society doesn’t exist and that all Humans are simply motivated by self-interest. If you stop and think for a moment, its complete Bollox, but plenty of people bought into it anyway,  attracted by the promise of “Bright

Call it what it is: the climate crisis

No planet B “I want you to act as if our house is on fire” a 16 year old school girl from Sweden proclaimed. The IPCC reported that if action is not taken immediately, within just 12 years time we will notice irreversible effects.

Soundbites aside In the run up to the local elections I pestered all of my friends and family to vote. I cast my vote in Leeds which remained a Labour hold overall.

No Confidence

The Mother of Parliaments emits a low groan - her confidence shot - as our distrust grows We smell the foul essence worn by the rich - it's the stench of the moneyed on the front bench The PM frowns as her voice thins and strains - repeating her mantras - again and again The deceits are disclosed in emotional stories of neglect and fear under the Tories those perfidious
