Detroit, Detroit! ‘The Free Markets’ – another name for Armageddon…

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,207 Monday 21 September 2015.

Britain, TTIP, and the new dark age

A letter a day to number 10. No 976 Friday 16 January 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, Boris Johnson may well dismiss critics of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) as “numskulls”, a term he obviously learnt from reading the Beano, but playground insults do not strengthen the case for TTIP, quite the opposite.

Slavery rebranded – freedom

A letter a day to number 10. No 968 Thursday 08 January 2015.

A letter a day to number 10. No 945 Sunday 14 December 2014. Dear Mr Cameron, We are facing system failure and sadly that’s down to a failure of imagination and a failure to progress. For example, you and the Unions have something in common, work, you may differ over how you see it but […]
