ah it's all good, this is on the exceptionally mild end of things, cliched 'fascists and socialists are morally equivalent' take

Ironically the accounts piling in to support this steaming hot take have the same position on trans rights as Katie Hopkins, and their main grievance against me is that I don't

I dunno, I haven't called migrants cockroaches, called for a Final Solution, preached white supremacism, or demonised Muslims. I have campaigned for workers' rights, LGBTQ rights, anti-racism, tax justice, and peace though? Tough call.

making rape jokes about a female politician just because you don't agree with her argument is obviously not ok

Outrageous that the govt is ploughing ahead with a on the basis of the 2015 electoral register, thus omitting the 2.1 million people who have registered to vote since then. Blatant abuse of democracy. My intervention on Andrea Leadsom:

People like Nadine Dorries and Tim Montgomerie crow about free speech and fighting political correctness, until they see a brown person say something they don't like. Then suddenly we have to be grateful. Fuck you. I have every right to criticise and support Britain when I want

Tony Blair: that eternal reminder you can help invade a country, with hundreds of thousands of deaths, millions of displaced and injured and the rise of fanatical groups, then go and work for murderous dictators, and still be treated as a statesman by the British media.

Not content with targeting migrants, has created a hostile environment for homeless people. Labour will end rough sleeping and build the homes people desperately need.

For what it's worth, I was told today by a reliable source that a US State Department official who visited London recently warned that the US was "ready to eat Britain alive" in trade talks. "They're frothing at the mouth," they told me.

What Ken Livingstone did on LGBTQ rights, anti-racism, and left politics in the 1980s and as London Mayor was immense. He made the choice to say offensive and inflammatory things (for what end?) that have upset and hurt people. That's why he had to go.

If young people were planning on deserting Corbyn over Brexit they'd have done it, oh I don't know, during the first leadership election? Or maybe the second one which was billed as a referendum on our Brexit stance? Or maybe the general election with no second referendum pledge?

Needless to say, I do not believe Murphy can speak with credibility on this issue. Call out Murphy, continue to challenge anti- semitism- one without the other is hypocrisy.

Ken Livingstone quits Labour. A very welcome decision. It’s sad given his huge contribution in the past but clearly something has gone very badly wrong. Sure that under new management, party will deal with these issues swiftly and fairly.

Glad that Ken Livingstone has left the Labour Party. He could have gone down in history as a brilliant progressive Mayor, and just trashed his reputation. Now Labour has to keep desperately working on mending its relationship with Britain's Jews.

this is genuinely appalling. until recently Montgomerie was considered a mainstream commentator. the person who he’s defending is literally an MP. time to take this seriously.
