I'm trying really hard to remember a time when we could go a whole week without having to have a national moan about "Europe"*. I mean I get it, I really do. All that great food, fantastic culture and nice weather.

Saving Gary McKinnon: One Year on With Janis Sharp

October 16 2013 marked the one year anniversary of Theresa May's statement to the House of Commons confirming that the UK would not be extraditing Gary McKinnon on charges of hacking to the United States as "a decision to extradite would be incompatible with McKinnon's human rights."

Was Anti-Semitism Lurking Behind the 'Daily Mail's Attack on Ralph Miliband?

Jonathan Romain | Posted 03.12.2013 | UK
Jonathan Romain

The Daily Mail's attack on Ralph Miliband is so preposterous that there must be a hidden motive behind it. But what? One is that it is based on anti-semitism. That would put the Mail in the same category as Hitler who defined a Jew as anyone with one Jewish grandparent - nothing to do with faith and purely according to their birth.
