When you're not doing so well, vote for a better life for yourself. If you are doing quite nicely, vote for a better life for others.

Slashing the benefits of the poor to reassure investors panicking about unfunded tax cuts for the rich has to be the most unapologetically evil domestic policy inflicted by a British government for generations

Just seen a guy refer to a cis woman who said she’d be happy to share toilets with Eddie Izzard as a ‘silly bitch’. Because how can you ‘protect women’ if the silly bitches won’t think what you tell them to think?

Solidarity to @kthalps. It's shocking that @thehill blocked her from discussing #IsraeliApartheid and disgusting that they sacked her for this. Watch and share her video. She and @RashidaTlaib are correct- if you support apartheid, you're not progressive. invidious.fdn.fr/_3xLOxx1ggQ

Learning is fun, nice choice of words but I guess that's your job.

Diligent work by Al Jazeera has made a serious case that something went wrong with media reporting of the Corbyn era. Its investigation deserves a conscientious response. Instead media omerta. In my new column for Middle East Eye I ask why the silence. middleeasteye.net/opinion/uk…

In 2019, I intervened to stop the deselection of a heavily pregnant Labour MP. That was our duty of care. We owe the same duty of care to Apsana — a socialist, Muslim, working-class woman and one of the best of our movement. She will not be silenced. theguardian.com/politics/202…

We saw the TV interview you gave in the context of “Labour antisemitism” where you described some horrific incidences you had suffered without revealing that (a) they occurred before Corbyn became leader and (b) that those convicted had no links to Labour. That was enough, thanks

Remember when Coolio did a gig in Preston, ran into a group of random students outside afterwards and went back to their place, where he made Caprese Salad, Chicken á la Daaaamn and Peach Crumble, and they jammed Gangster's Paradise. What a guy.

We keep hearing talk that landlords will “need” to hike rents up because of increasing mortgage interest rates, but just look at this: a mortgage of £600pm with rent of over triple that. Most landlords already charge far in excess of what they’re paying out. Remember that.

The Chancellor may choose to uprate benefits by earnings rather than inflation. This saves £11bn in one year, and £20bn across two years. This would leave a typical working couple with two children on Universal Credit over £1,000 worse off (when incomes are already falling).

My latest: Panorama mentioned none of this background on Ella Rose, who'd earlier been exposed working with an Israeli spy – in breach of journalistic ethics and the BBC’s duty to deal fairly with viewers required by the government to pay for its services mintpressnews.com/britains-l…

How wonderful. Imagine how authentically sad/sorry he'll look as he steps up the NHS sell off. I wonder what they'll call it so "centrists" can pretend it's not happening?

In #LabourFiles – The Hierarchy: we reveal disturbing allegations of entrenched racism and abuse within the UK Labour Party – including the secret surveillance within the party of ethnic minority members and their underage children. invidious.fdn.fr/P-cHBQf5z_M

"Great British Energy" is very off-putting. Sounds like a phrase you'd use to describe Jeremy Clarkson's personality
💥New - Keir Starmer announces new nationalised Great British Energy, which will be publicly owned, within the first year of a Labour government

Schrödinger’s #LabourFiles: simultaneously not significant or important enough to merit any coverage or even mention in the UK mainstream media—and yet so explosive and damaging as to warrant legal injunctions to prevent their being aired.
