We're On The Offensive, And Boris Johnson's Constituency Is Firmly In Our Sights

The case against Boris Johnson is very clear. Here is a man who was sacked for lying twice: once by a newspaper editor, another by his party leader. He opportunistically backed Brexit only because he felt it would further his political career. He recently had perhaps the most humiliating carcrash interview of any Cabinet minister in recent history. And as Foreign Secretary, he is reducing this great country to an international laughing stock.

As A Brit, I Refuse To Be Terrified By Terrorist Attacks

The purpose of terrorism is to spread terror. This should be a statement of the obvious, but it apparently isn't. Terrorists want us to feel afraid. They want to cause maximum disruption to our lives, to the way we live those lives, to our democracy. The greater impact, the greater the success of terrorism.

Why We Need To Protest Now More Than Ever

So I'm going to protest tonight. Theresa May is probably going to pay no attention. This is the woman who wanted to make a list of foreign workers after all, so her refusal to condemn the 'Muslim ban' wasn't exactly a big surprise. But I wouldn't forgive myself if I didn't try. I protest so I can sleep at night, knowing I stood up and made my voice heard. Will you be able to do the same?

Activism, No Longer A Dirty Word

William Crona | Posted 31.01.2017 | UK Universities & Education
William Crona

The term 'activist' should really be stripped of its obnoxious (and in many cases unfair) connotations and begin to be understood exactly as what it really means: acting resolutely in accordance with ones most dearly held principles. The crowds that have been marching in unity throughout the world show that this process is already under way and I urge every one of us to raise their banner alongside them in solidarity.

Why Corbyn Supporters Need To Act On Fair Criticisms Of The Labour Party - And Not Just Dismiss Them As Unfair Attacks By The Mainstream Media

Lee Burkwood | Posted 06.12.2016 | UK Politics
Lee Burkwood

So to sum up, rather than being dismissive of anyone criticising Corbyn or Labour, look deeper to see whether it is constructive or silly tabloid criticism and work on making things better. You can shout people like Owen Jones down all you want but that isn't going to change the fact that Labour have many issues they have to sort out before they can even think of being elected into government and ousting the Conservatives from power.
