When you bear in mind that 75% of abused women who are murdered are killed after (or as they attempt to) they leave their partners, a victim looking for housing is at risk and needs the governments' help and support.

We Need Joined Up Politics

The General Election is looming and never have I seen such dark clouds on the horizon, and never have I seen the Labour Party, the main party of opposition, in such disarray. I blame Labour MPs, for all the in-fighting, and for failing to take a broader view.

Integration - A Language Problem?

Michael Abberton | Posted 09.01.2017 | UK Politics

Just like the Casey report, this report is flawed in that it completely fails to address its own cultural bias, and rather than looking at the whole picture which includes deprivation, education levels, historical ethnic divisions, collapse of industry, austerity and the populist exploitation and creation of mass immigration myths, it points the finger of blame squarely and solely, once again, to migrants - and not just new immigrants, but long established migrant and minority communities.

Voter ID - The Smokescreen Of The Pickles Report

The Pickles report is a largely a smokescreen - to cover the implementation of other Tory anti-immigration policies with very tenuous links to voter fraud. The fact that voter fraud and personation is extremely rare - so rare as not to be statistically significant - is really not the issue.

Whether You Like Him Or Not, Corbyn Is The Symptom, Not The Cause

The problem with the Labour Party right now is not that it has a problem, but that it doesn't know what that problem is.

Who Can Replace David Cameron?

Will Black

The Tories and their media can be like a broken record in their questioning of Jeremy Corbyn's ability to lead the country. However, as David Cameron has already said he will not lead the Conservative Party for a third term, a more pressing question is which Tory is going to be able to take the reins from Cameron.

Today's economic mauling of the poor and the vulnerable has ushered into being a brutal dystopia for those at the bottom of society and a wondrous utopia for those at the top.

The austerity narrative is finally being meaningfully punctured from the front bench of the opposition. If Labour maintains this level of pressure it can expect to do rather better than its critics predict in the upcoming local elections.

Friends on Benefits

Chris Tavner

Fingers crossed I'll snare some people in to reading this blog with its almost sexy sounding title. It's fair to say though that 'friends on benefits' is a lot different to 'friends with benefits'. Simply, having a 'friend on benefits' means only one person is getting fucked.

The Right-Wing Victory - Can We Really Complain?

Cohan Chew | Posted 22.05.2016 | UK Politics
Cohan Chew

The election results at the start of the month came as quite a shock. With a Labour-SNP coalition taking the lead at the polls, a Tory majority seemed highly unlikely. However, winning just over 50% of the 650 seats, the Conservative party shamed the pollsters' predictions.

So, imagine that you and four mates are popping into ASDA on the way to a party. You've each got a quid, and you're heading for the 'one pound a can' offer in the drink aisle. When you get there you spot another sign - twenty cans for a fiver. What course of action makes best business sense?

We've hit the part of the General Election campaign that really starts to get on my nerves.
