Bolsonaro: A monster engineered by our media

With Jair Bolsonaro’s victory in Brazil’s presidential election at the weekend, the doom-mongers among western elites are out in force once again. His success, like Donald Trump’s, has confirmed a long-held prejudice: that the people cannot be trusted; that, when empowered, they behave like a mob driven by primitive urges; that the unwashed masses now threaten to bring down the […]

The trust deficit tearing apart our societies

The latest “scandal” gripping Britain – or to be more accurate, British elites – is over the use of the term “Zionist” by the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, the head of the opposition and possibly the country’s next prime minister. Yet again, Corbyn has found himself ensnared in what a small group of Jewish leadership organisations, which claim improbably to […]

The Jewish establishment’s ‘War Against Corbyn’ risks bringing real antisemitism to Britain

Greetings from Britain, where the Jewish community is facing an “existential threat to Jewish life”. At least that’s according to an editorial shared by all three of our Jewish community newspapers this week – the Jewish Chronicle, The Jewish News, and the Jewish Telegraph. You’re probably thinking that Her Majesty’s Government must have just introduced the equivalent of Hitler’s Nuremberg […]

Corbyn and anti-Semitism claims: The real reason behind attack on Labour leader

The British media has been dominated of late by talk of “Labour’s anti-Semitism scandal”. Two self-appointed right-wing Jewish organisations, the Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council, organised a demonstration outside parliament, attended by right-wing individuals such as Norman Tebbit and Ian Paisley Jr, who have no record of fighting anti-Semitism and racism in general. The demonstration was ostensibly against the anti-Semitism of the Labour Party, […]

The anti-semitism paradox damaging Labour

The supposed “anti-semitism crisis” in Britain’s Labour party is revealing an interesting paradox at the heart of modern discussions of anti-semitism. Undoubtedly there are those who intentionally exploit anti-semitism for political gain. That should be obvious if we pause to consider how much attention leftwing “anti-semitism” (criticism of Israel) – formerly promoted as the “New Anti-Semitism” – is receiving compared […]

Russiagate, Corbyn and the Crimes of the Corporate Media

Anti-Russia hysteria reached parodical proportions in the ‘mainstream’ media in the wake of the Sergei Skripol ‘novichok’ incident in recent days but what this burlesque spectacle actually reveals is the toxic interdependence between the corporate state and the corporate media – the operative word there being ‘corporate’ – exposing how they always work together to sweep us all along on a tide of fast-rising nationalistic fervour into the next geopolitically convenient conflict.

Challenging the Mainstream Media

There have to be ground rules to assist Labour MPs attending media interviews. The studies and articles appended below show that, at the moment and without exaggeration, #MSM is our enemy. Look beyond the studio staff and the interviewer’s phony camaraderie to see the immovable first principle that every interview, casual or in studio must be treated with suspicion. Expect […]

The Entirely Fake Owen Smith

Even the mainstream media feel compelled to drop hints that Owen Smith is not what he is being promoted as. The Guardian’s words yesterday were unintentionally revealing; the former shadow work and pensions secretary plans to pitch himself as the soft-left option Note “to pitch himself”. For PR professional Smith, political stance is nothing to do with personal belief, it […]

An open letter to Angela Eagle about her hypocrisy

You may be aware that a window at the Wallasey constituency office of Labour leadership challenger Angela Eagle was smashed with a brick overnight. Ms Eagle was quick to blame the vandalism on supporters of Jeremy Corbyn, claiming that it was “bullying” against her that had “no place in politics in the UK and it needs to end”. The hypocrisy of […]
