I had a thought in recent days – concerning the June 8th election.
And then I had a look online and realised other people had been having the same thought: specifically, the possibility that Theresa May and the Tories are deliberately hoping to lose this election.

It had been occurring to me for some weeks – as bad Tory policies and missteps continued to add up. But the point where it went from being a random musing to a more serious thought was when FOX HUNTING was suddenly in the news and on the Tory agenda again – which felt like a totally random and entirely unnecessary piece of time-travel (and a very odd thing to revive at a time when you’re trying to secure votes and strengthen your mandate).

The Prime Minister then skipping the Leaders Debate last night (and in general refusing to debate with Jeremy Corbyn) seemed to add to this suspicion. (more…)

Theresa May’s sudden call for a General Election – to be held on June 8th – caught many by surprise.

Having previously said on multiple occasions that she didn’t intend to hold another election, she suddenly changed her mind.

The question is why. (more…)

And so we’re dragged back to the Ken Livingstone ‘Anti Semitism’ scandal and the torches and pitchforks are back out.

Livingstone, who has been described as “the only truly successful left-wing British politician of modern times”, may have made a comment that was offensive to some: but it was essentially only a historical observation, and the witch-hunt that followed it spiraled out of all proportion and continues now to rumble on.

A brief word in respect for Labour MP Gerald Kaufman, who passed away a few days ago.

Kaufman, who served as a Member of Parliament from 1970 until his death in 2017, was the longest-serving MP in the House.

It was curious that Kaufman happened to pass away at precisely the time I was putting the finishing touches on a very extensive article that I’ve been working on since December – specifically about the extremist nationalists in Israel and about Israeli agencies’ connection to the rising Far-Right parties and politicians in Europe and the West.

Since his accession to leadership of the Labour Party, barely a day has gone by without the political establishment and mainstream media engaging in anti-Corbyn, anti-Leftist propaganda or questioning Corbyn’s ‘legitimacy’ as leader of the opposition.

The controversy now rocking the Labour Party in Britain – which is now being blanketly labelled as an “anti-Semitic” party by the media – is actually a symptom of a much bigger problem.

OK, I apologise for the shamelessly attention-seeking headline. But not a day goes by without some attention-seeking newspaper headline or ‘story’ concerning Jeremy Corbyn.

Not since Princess Diana has a single individual in Britain taken up so much newspaper space on a daily basis (and it didn’t end well  for her when she was assassinated by MI5 died in an accidental car crash in Paris).

“What just happened?” one devastated voter writes in a letter to The Independent, trying to come to terms with the 2015 General Election outcome. He concludes that was just happened was “Nothing short of an Establishment coup.”
That wouldn’t necessarily be an exaggeration. This is a very serious generational moment (of crisis) with major implications for society, for social cohesion, for common welfare and for the United Kingdom itself.
A forlorn Nick Clegg warned in his resignation speech on Friday morning, “The continued existence of our United Kingdom itself is now in grave jeopardy…”
