if you’re wondering how leftist leaders like jeremy corbyn are treated in the mass media just remember that at a time when the conservatives are responsible for the racist treatment of windrush citizens, the tories have voted down leveson 2 from going ahead, and the uk just abstained from the un vote to have an independent inquiry into israel’s killing of unarmed palestinian protestors… this made the news:
Labour’s shadow home secretary Diane
Abbott has accused the government of failing the families after Grenfell relatives have been blocked from attending the public enquiry.
“It is simply not right that bereaved relatives who
are core participants have not been granted visas for the inquiry. It
would be easy for the Home Secretary to grant visas to a handful of
“The Grenfell families had to lobby hard even to get a partial panel,
although Theresa May said she would leave no stone unturned in this
inquiry. She also promised victims would not suffer, irrespective of
their immigration status, but is now failing the families once more.”
2 years after the referendum and less than 1 year until what used to be the hard deadline for Brexit negotiations to be completed and our government finally deigns to tell their public what their Brexit vision actually is.
I feel like we should have gotten this a lot sooner. Say… at least before the general election the PM called where she campaigned on getting the electorate to trust her with Brexit.
