Message to Jeremy Corbyn: You Represent Hope Not Just Because You Oppose Austerity, But Because You Must Save Us From Brexit

13.7.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   It’s over a month since the General Election, which destroyed Theresa May as any sort of credible leader. Having called an election, despite repeatedly promising not to, she then showed a startling inability to meet ordinary people and to connect with them, in […]

My photos of ‘Not One Day More’, a Huge Protest Against Theresa May in London, July 1, 2017

1.7.17

See my photos on Flickr here! Please also, if you can, consider supporting my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Today (July 1, 2017), I cycled into central London with my son Tyler to support the ‘Not One Day More’ protest called by the People’s Assembly Against Austerity, and to take photos. […]

As Brexit Talks Begin, It’s Clear That We’re Doomed Unless We Ditch the Tories

20.6.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   What an embarrassing and disgraceful position we find ourselves in, as the deluded representatives of an illegitimate government (the shambles that is the minority Tory government headed by “dead woman walking” Theresa May) begin official negotiations for our departure from the EU, following […]

Corbyn Rises, Theresa May Falls; Hard Brexit Now Looks Untenable

9.6.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   What a great, great, great, great, great day for the fundamental decency of so many of the British people, after seven long years of cruelty, mean-mindedness and division. Last night was, undoubtedly, Jeremy Corbyn’s night. Vilified by the media since winning the Labour […]

On Eve of Election, Theresa May Returns to Her Default Position, That of a Grubby Racist Scaremonger with Contempt for the Law

7.6.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator – and watch my band The Four Fathers playing ‘Stand Down Theresa’, a cover of The Beat’s classic protest song, ‘Stand Down Margaret.’   It was all going so well until Saturday. As I explained in my article, The Spectacular and Unforeseen Collapse of […]

Video: Andy Worthington’s Band The Four Fathers Play ‘Stand Down Theresa’, An Updated Version of The Beat’s ‘Stand Down Margaret’

5.6.17

When I was growing up in late 70s Britain, one of the great political anthems of the time — when we were not short of protest music from, to name but a few artists, the Sex Pistols, the Clash and the Specials — was ‘Stand Down Margaret’ by The Beat, featured on their debut album, […]

The Spectacular and Unforeseen Collapse of Theresa May and the Tories

3.6.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Something extraordinary is happening in the UK, as Theresa May has turned a 20-point lead over the Labour Party into a three-point lead in the course of just one month, in what has been, without any advance warning, the most inept leadership performance […]

Never Trust the Tories: It’s 32 Years Today Since the Intolerable Brutality of the Battle of the Beanfield

1.6.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Today, June 1, the cultural nostalgia industry — a burgeoning movement that seeks safe havens in the past, where the reality of the here and now can be denied — is in overdrive, marking the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ […]

DIY Cultures 2017: The Counter-Culture Is Alive and Well at a Zine Fair in Shoreditch

24.5.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   Last week I paid a visit to DIY Cultures, a wonderful — and wonderfully packed — one-day event celebrating zines and the DIY ethos at Rich Mix in Shoreditch, curated by a core collective of Sofia Niazi, my friend Hamja Ahsan and Helena Wee, and […]

Ismail Einashe, British Citizen of Somali Origin, Describes How The Status of Migrants is “Permanently Up for Review” in the New Intolerant UK

16.5.17

Please support my work as a reader-funded investigative journalist and commentator.   What strange, and almost unbelievably infuriating times we live in, as Donald Trump somehow remains president in the US, and Britain continues to be bludgeoned by a phoney demonstration of democracy. The latest example is the General Election on June 8, which follows […]
