Refugees, Terrorists and the Ugly Truthiness

It is, incredibly, exactly 10 years since the word 'truthiness' first appeared, courtesy of Stephen Colbert. I know this because I didn't just feel it to be true - I looked it up... And 10 years later, the ugly truthiness is back.

You're Damn Right We're Crying Out for Leadership: An Open Letter to Andy Burnham

I agree that we need an honest debate about welfare - just like we need honest debates about housing, education and all other aspects of government policy that impact greatly on people's daily lives. And I think these debates are best approached from the centre. For that reason, I still think you're the Labour Party's greatest hope as leader right now. But to do that, Andy, you have to take people with you. You have to lead them. You have to give them what Sarah Palin so memorably called "that hopey-changey stuff" (and I think it's about time the Left reclaimed that from her, don't you?). This is what Jeremy Corbyn is doing so well - and why he's getting such levels of support from party members, especially new ones like myself.
