Socialist, anti-fascist, Guardian columnist, author, owner of 2 ridiculous cats, losing my Northern accent with every passing day. Sad.

There are no debates in TV or radio studios or newspapers columns about each individual from a minority who gets racially abused, or threatened, or spat at, or bullied in a playground or workplace, because of the bigotry and hatred and racism whipped up by politicians.

IWGB Couriers Branch 17h
Firebrand will be speaking at the Doctors Laboratory couriers picket line this Thursday. Wonder if he has anything to say on workers rights, NHS privatisation and greedy bosses...

This is a picture of my dad in New Brighton in the late 40s/early 50s. I want to find the exact location. Twitter, please do your thing!

Hi! I’ve never cried on air, not that I have a problem with people who have, and I’ve walked off once out of several hundred appearance, proud to have done so, and I’ve never let fascists chasing me down the street spitting down my face or trying to punch me intimidate me 👌

I'm sorry, I've got this completely wrong. I meant a banana and salted caramel milkshake.

Nigel Farage once declared that he'd "don khaki, pick up a rifle and head for the front lines" if his type of Brexit wasn't implemented. He said Brexit had been won "without a single bullet being fired" days after Jo Cox was murdered. Spare me the tears over a banana milkshake.

This is a very thoughtful and wise thread, particularly for those of us - like myself - who struggle when it comes to cases of Jewish people being accused of antisemitism.

The far right would hate you to see this video of the extremist James Goddard calling Liverpool a "shit hole" and proving what a lie it is that they're the champions of Britain's demonised working class

Kudos to Jess Phillips here. I've had the misfortune to argue with this loudmouth bigot - who doesn't even have kids at the primary school he's protesting against. The protests are based on ignorance, myths, outright lies, and old school bigotry.

is a union that stands up in and out of the workplace. We’ll fight the far right at home and abroad and that’s why on June 4th at 11:00 we will be alongside thousands in Trafalgar Square letting Donald Trump he is not welcome in the UK Join us 👇

Organising a local anti-Trump event, a coach to the London protest, or something creative on the day? Add it to the Stop Trump action map:

The Brexit Party have the cheek to say Labour have abandoned the working class - whilst releasing an ad lauding the Prime Minister who ravaged industrial and mining communities. Don't be conned: they're ultra-Thatcherites bankrolled by millionaires.

Grateful to Danny Alexander for reminding us how Britain ended up in this appalling mess, and who the architects were.
