Trump might be trumped

Feeling bleak and despondent at the election of Trump? Yes, you have got good reason to be, but this article shows that wish as he may, he and the rampant right cannot easily unpick the Paris climate deal or hold back a powerful, growing movement for renewables and against fossil fuel interests and climate change.  …

Access to justice - the difference between law and justice

Mauritian lawyer, political activist and friend Jean Claude Bibi was interviewed by the l'express on this subject in 2012.  It's a clear statement of the difference between law and justice and demonstrates that the struggle for justice is indeed international. JCB is referring to the Mauritian system.  It should be remembered that legal aid has been cut savagely by the UK Government.  It would be good if someone could blog about…

BBC Invents 3 Different Reasons to Justify Anti-Corbyn Bias

Those who read my blog at the time will be familiar with the fact that back in October BBC Newsnight ran an astonishingly biased piece about the Tory government's U-turn on contracting to help the Saudi dictatorship run its prisons. [I know the BBC is routinely right-wing and anti- Corbyn but this really took the biscuit.]
