Battle for Britain: Fighting the Coalition Government’s Vile Ideology

Victory for Labour MP’s Private Member’s Bill To Repeal the Tory Privatisation of the NHS and Exempt the NHS from the TTIP Agreement

22.11.14

Congratulations to Clive Efford, the Labour MP for Eltham and Plumstead, in south east London, and the 240 other MPs who voted for his Private Member’s Bill, the National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill, which aims to repeal the worst aspects of the privatising Health and Social Care Act that the Tory-led coalition […]

Photos and Essay: The Inspiring Council House Occupation in Stratford That Is Resonating Across London

1.10.14

See my photos of my visit to the Focus E15 Open House Occupation in Stratford here. On Friday, I paid a visit to the Carpenters Estate in Stratford, in east London, to show solidarity with the Focus E15 Mothers, a group of single mums, from Stratford, who were recently kicked out of a hostel where […]

Humiliating Tory Defeat in Parliament Over the Reviled and Unjust Bedroom Tax

9.9.14

On Friday, there was some rare good news regarding the British government’s assault on the unemployed, as a Private Member’s Bill aimed at mitigating the worst effects of the hated “bedroom tax” passed a crucial vote in the House of Commons. Ever since the wretched Tory-led coalition government seized power in May 2010, the very […]

Save the NHS: Photos of the People’s March for the NHS in London, September 6, 2014

7.9.14

See my photos of the People’s March for the NHS and the rally in Trafalgar Square on Flickr here!

In 2012 and 2013, a grass-roots people’s movement in Lewisham defeated plans by the government — and […]

14.7.14

Please support my work! Over eight years ago, in March 2006, I began researching and writing about the Bush administration’s “war on terror” prison at Guantánamo and the 779 men (and boys) held there since the prison opened in January 2002. Initially, I spent 14 months researching and writing my book The Guantánamo Files, based, […]

London’s Insane Housing Bubble – and the Sickening Greed that is Strangling the Capital

30.6.14

Everywhere I look in London, monstrous new housing developments are rearing up — unaffordable to most working people, and largely bought up by foreign investors. While some take up residence, others leave their investments empty or join the frenzy of home-grown landlords in the buy-to-let market, fleecing an ever-increasing percentage of London’s workforce, who simply […]
