Red And Black Telly: Has the big crash finally arrived?

According to Anthony Beevor, under the Spanish Inquisition’s persecution of Muslims and Jews, many people took to eating pork to divert suspicion. One reason it features so prominently in the Spanish diet. Hundreds of years later, progressive Denmark follows suit.

Mid-Jan round-up: antifascism, undercover cops, prison news and more

Cautiously pessimistic

At time of writing, the junior doctors’ strike planned for the 26-28th is currently suspended, although the action planned for Feb 10th is still provisionally on. At the moment, it’s still too early to tell if the talks have really achieved anything or if this is just the latest in a long line of powerful-seeming strikes being pissed up the wall to no effect.

Return to Dover, January 30th

Next weekend, the big news down south is the return to Dover to oppose the latest fascist march there on the 30th – transport is running from Berkshire/Oxford, Brighton (looks like that’s now full, though), London and Manchester (again, it might be late to book from there, but can’t hurt to ask), as well as from within Kent itself.

Pride's Purge

A foreign state openly sponsoring its agents to run around London killing people with radioactive poison seems to be the very definition of state-sponsored terrorism.

So why is Cameron so keen to allow his party to be funded by pro-Putin Russians?

At a Tory Party fundraising dinner not long before the last election, ultra-wealthy Russians were the most representative foreign nationality at the fundraising event.

According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, here are some of the foreign billionaires who attended the Tory Party party fundraiser in 2014:

And here’s Cameron chatting with Putin allies at a Tory Party fundraiser:

Cameron’s also made it possible for rich Russians, as well as Saudis, to come to the UK without even having to have a normal visa – if they are rich enough of…
