  • Buying a pig in a poke


    TORY ministers cannot look at an industrial crisis without viewing it as an opportunity to slash workers’ share of the wealth that their labour creates.

  • Classic Planet Fear tactics


    ANOTHER day, another scare story from the Ministry of Fear to persuade us that voting to leave the European Union means welcoming war, pestilence and penury.

    BRITAIN’S inhumane systems for punishing the poor are now common knowledge internationally, it seems. The audience at Cannes, where Ken Loach’s film I, Daniel Blake won the top prize on Sunday night were reported to be weeping while it was screened.

  • Tories obsessed with fracking


    NORTH YORKSHIRE Tory councillors have a stark choice of backing the profits-at-all-costs approach of their national leadership or protecting the beauty and tranquillity of their area.

  • A real chance to beat TTIP


    POLITICS is clearly moving when one of Margaret Thatcher’s most hardline former ministers, Peter Lilley, feels he has to back a Labour amendment to defend the NHS.

  • Cameron’s total Toryshambles


    HEAD of state Elizabeth Windsor must have wondered yesterday, when she began reading the Queen’s Speech, whether she had just woken up after months in a coma.

    Much of the terminology and half-baked policies belong in 2015 when they first saw the light of day.
