  • Hard News: The Midterms,

    Agreed, House seats starting to flip now. Up to 4 and they need 20-odd.

    Dems have lost a Senate seat and House struggling to flip seats. My friends in Philly are just about in tears.

  • Hard News: What we learned yesterday…, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    Absolutely agree Rich. Forget about a referendum and just get on with some effective, evidence-based policy, and then own it at the next election. I think the debate about whether to is over, it's about how to. Just get on with it and don't waste the time/money on a referendum. It will probably be impossible to frame a question that gives the answer required.

  • Hard News: Interesting Britain!, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Maybe it's hard to concentrate on the job of opposition leader with so many knives in your back, front and sides. I'm really enjoying this now as it creeps closer to a Labour victory – fingers crossed.

    Thank you for doing this Russell. It was just about driving me nuts reading through those to discover the lies on which they were based. It's just so awful and sends a message to all the young workers and couples out there that the reason they can't buy a house is because they are lazy and/or dumb. I pray to god that they vote for some change this year.

  • Hard News: The next four years,

    I'm still struggling with the evil Russia syndrome. There is nothing I like about Vlad Putin but his posturing on the borders of Europe is matched by NATO posturing. They are both adding troops and missiles, and attempting to sway bordering countries politics with equal enthusiasm. Taking a slightly longer look at history, with whom should we have most sympathy out of USA and Russia? USA has never been invaded nor even had enemy positions nearby – Cuba excepted. Russia has experienced multiple invasions, including by US military during the Russian civil war 1918. Imagine if, today, Russia was actively recruiting countries in South America to it's "defence" league, and positioning troops and missiles in Canada. Do I see Russia as a benign force who should be given free reign to operate in the world? Absolutely not. However, I don't feel the USA should have that option either and, yet, they are probably much closer to that free reign scenario. I fear that I am just demonstrating my naivety and ignorance here, but it strikes me that balance of reporting is weighted in "the West's" favour. Your example of the conflict in Syria would be a prime example of casting Russia as evil but ignoring the role of the USA in the current conflict, or Europe in the development of the whole sh*t show that is the Middle East.
