History Of The Far Right In Britain

Far Right, Nationalist and Fascism based groups have a history in Britain dating back to before the Second World War. The evolution of the far right ideology with its roots in Mussolini’s Fascisti to the modern day Britain First and Neo Nazi hate groups is a fascinating journey and one we have documented here for […]

The Problem With The Will Of The People

Possibly the most oft quoted catchphrase of the post Brexit referendum world is the statement ‘The Will of the People.’ It is hard to find a single article on the EU referendum that doesn’t make reference to the words that have become synonymous with the concept of democracy. However when discussing democracy it is important […]

Prevent – Get The Statistics Out There

The government’s counter terrorism Prevent strategy has generated a good deal of controversy in the twelve years since it was first launched. Ostensibly a program that aims to target radicalisation and to help people unwittingly drawn into terrorism it has come under a lot of fire both from Muslims and Non Muslims for being focused […]

Politics And Our Relationships

Last year was one of the most politically turbulent in living memory for the citizens of Britain. The impact of the country voting to leave the European Union will be debated and discussed for years to come and Brexit will take its place in the history books as one of the pivotal turning points of […]

Another Week In Trumpland

So………let’s see what’s happening in the world of Trump…. 1. He has been crying as his “Muslim Ban” has been lifted by the courts….that hasn’t given him much to smile about. In fact, as usual, you can see the fallout from that by looking at his Twitter account 10 minutes after the decision was made. […]

Supporting One Another

  Today I listened to this from the New York governor in response to Trump and his “immigration ban” Now, I know people are saying that it’s nothing to do with religion and it’s only temporary (and many other things which they use to pardon Trump and his actions). Fact of the matter is, his […]

Trump Discriminates Against Judge

Trump is talking about a judge….an AMERICAN judge, who is obviously in their position as they are competent to do the job. It’s not like you just happen to walk into being a judge because you fancy giving it a go during a gap year or something. During his interview, he gets asked time and […]

Government Accountable To People

Looks like the bleachers are full of…..one person it seems. Hmmmmmmmmm. The inauguration was quite an eye opener. The only time I’d seen protests on around the same scale was when Bush Jr had his inauguration- If one this is very clear, the US voting system needs to be addressed so that you don’t get […]

Where Do We Go From Here

This isn’t where we intended to be….. It is hard to find anything positive to write about the appointment of Donald Trump to the most powerful political position in the world. Even without considering his far right views, his links with white supremacists, his obsession with Putin and his sexist behaviour, the man lacks the […]

Is The End Of The World Nigh?

As the USA Presidential race heads into the final two days and shows no sign of being the Democrat landslide that many of us liberals hoped for we enter a nailbitingly tense period which will involve a lot of good people having very little sleep. When Donald Trump first rumbled onto the political scene I […]

Why We Could Never Have Voted Brexit

It is rare to find our pro diversity group agreeing unanimously on anything. The strength of our group lies not in conforming our views to fit a party line but in respecting the different views and beliefs held by our members. This defines tolerance as opposed to conformity which pretty much encapsulates the ethos of […]
