In defence of Jeremy Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn is getting a lot wrong at the moment. Even his most passionate defenders would have to admit that. He seems to be on a quest to alienate himself from the media, whose support he will need to have any hope of getting elected. In his quest to appear totally above the mirky world of Westminster politics, he has missed wide open goals and is letting himself be attacked by opponents who aren’t living up to his high minded tactics.

In essence, he doesn’t care what his operation looks like from the outside as long as his inner circle is happy. And that’s his problem – who cares what things look like from the inside?

Terrorism: the Global Bogeyman

The 20th century sure was a terrifying time to be alive. It saw humanity permanately on the brink of utter devastation, be it world wars or nuclear Armageddon. Life sure is much calmer now, don’t you think? WRONG! As 24 hour rolling news will tell you, 21st century America is a bloody, violent and Godless place with suffering and death looming around every corner. This hell-hole is so terrible that we are willing to sacrifice our most basic human rights in the hope that if we sacrifice enough, eventually it will all go away. However, is this mentality really any different to a child’s fear of the bogeyman in their closet? Continue reading “Terrorism: the Global Bogeyman”
