Read More

By Sam Earle. On the dramatic stage of American politics, Marx’s famous line that ‘history repeats itself’, first as tragedy and then as farce, has taken on a newly prophetic edge.

By Fathia Begum Dear Theresa May, I would like to extend an open invitation for you to get to know me (or monitor me as you please). The Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill that you propose is not only instigating racial hatred but also further exacerbating the Muslim hating culture that is already prevalent in our society.
