Jeremy corbyn issued the following statement, after 172 Labour MPs supported a motion of ‘No Confidence’ in his leadership.
“In the aftermath of last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is divided.
The government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.
Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes.
To do that we need to stand together. Since I was elected leader of our party nine months ago, we have repeatedly defeated the government over its attacks on living standards.
Last month, Labour become…

Jo Cox RIP. This is so so sad.
Labour MP and remain campaigner Jo Cox has died after being shot and stabbed outside her surgery. Jo’s attacker allegedly shouted “Britain First” before launching his vicious attack.
Already tinfoil hat Brexit campaigners* are calling this appalling murder a “false flag”:
Thoughts are with Jo’s family.
*I’ve deliberately not bothered to blank out the twitter identities of these sick people, so if you’re on Twitter, please feel free to tell them what you think of their disgusting comments.
The 14th March 2016 saw the 25th anniversary of the release of the Birmingham Six. Perhaps the most famous ‘miscarriage of justice’ in legal history. They were not alone then and they are not alone now. There are many innocent men and women languishing in prison who urgently need our help to turn the excruciatingly slow wheels of justice in their favour. The case of the Craigavon 2, Brendan McConville and John-Paul Wootton, is one such case and their conviction must be overturned. We at London Celtic Punks are fully behind the Justice For The Craigavon 2 campaign. We cannot let a miscarriage of justice to this scale ever happen again.
“Hopefully this miscarriage of justice can be over turned and this nightmare of suffering for us and our families ended. However, after the experience we have already had we do not have a great deal of confidence in the criminal justice system, hence, we…

ISIS terrorists have publicly executed 19 Kurdish women, local activists in Mosul reported. They were burned alive in iron cages in one of the city squares, sources told Kurdish ARA News agency.
The women, who belonged to the Kurdish Yezidi minority, were executed on Thursday, according to witnesses in Mosul, the Iraqi stronghold of ISIS.
“They were punished for refusing to have sex with ISIS militants,” local media activist Abdullah al-Malla told ARA News.
Hundreds of local residents witnessed the brutal execution, but could not do anything about it, he added.
Sunni Muslims living in territories under their control are forced to live by ISIS rules or be expelled or killed. Ethnic and religious minorities are being harshly persecuted. The Yezidis, an ethnic group that has its own synthetic religion and are considered devil-worshipers by extremist Muslims, are among those suffering under ISIS.
Thousands of Kurdish women captured by ISIS terrorists were…

Dr.Máire O”Shea,happily worked with anarchists on several campaigns of common interest such as abortion rights and ‘Trade Unionists & Unemployed Against the Programme’. Living in England for many years, she was an eminent psychiatrist with the Midlands Health Authority where she was a pioneer of patient-centred psychotherapy instead of ECT and drug treatments. She was also an active member of her trade union, MSF.
A brave woman, she campaigned in Birmingham for the release of the Birmingham Six. In 1985 the English police charged her, under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, with conspiracy to cause explosions. Gaining support from her union and from the Irish and left wing communities, the police case collapsed in court and she was acquitted. Generous to the last, she directed that after a wake in her house that her body be donated to medical research at UCD.

On Friday the 26th of November 1920, Patrick Loughnane, aged twenty-nine, and his younger brother, Harold, aged twenty-two, were labouring in the fields near their mother’s home in Shanaglish, County Galway, carrying out the arduous work of threshing corn for the autumn harvest. With them were a dozen or so neighbours, families working together as a cooperative during the late farming season, gathering and feeding corn into a hired, steam-driven threshing machine. While their siblings had left the region to find employment elsewhere, some emigrating to the United States and Britain, the Loughnane boys had stayed with their widowed parent to tend the family’s small patch of land in the west of Ireland. Patrick, a fine athlete and hurler, was the elected head of the local cumann or party branch of Sinn Féin while his studious, bookworm brother functioned as it’s secretary. Both men were also serving volunteers or citizen-soldiers of the insurgent Irish Republican Army, the older brother becoming a company commander in the local townland of Beagh. Though…

TheSpectator‘s Alex Massie penned an article last Tuesday entitled: “Jeremy Corbyn should not be allowed to rewrite the history of his support for the IRA”. Corbyn’s association with Sinn Féin – the political wing of the now-decommissioned (Provisional) Irish Republican Army – is a common line of attack used against him by his opponents. Whilst it is true that Corbyn has been happy to meet with representatives of Sinn Féin throughout his political career, what does this actually mean in context?
Last Friday afternoon, I attempted to submit a comment underneath Massie’s article on the Spectator‘s website in order to respond to some of the assertions he had made therein, but comments to the site must first undergo a filtering process before being published and it appears their censors were not happy to publish mine.
My comment remained pending for a number of hours before being deleted completely from the Disqus commenting system employed by the…

“Take Egypt out and the whole structure of the Israelites’ tale would instantly fall.”
Dr. Ashraf Ezzat
Obviously, Egypt must have played a vital role in the history of the Hebrews otherwise it wouldn’t have been such a recurring theme in the Jewish holy book.
Egypt was, and still is, the magnificent overture to the Israelites’ story. Take Egypt out and the whole structure of the Israelites’ tale would instantly fall.
The land of the Nile has been the theater for the Israelites’ epic stories of alleged enslavement, divine retaliation, wandering in the wilderness and finally a breath-taking and logic-defying exit.
But on the other hand, do you know how many times Israel or the Israelites were mentioned in the ancient Egyptian records? … Well, and according to history and the ancient Egyptian meticulous…
