Nate Silver has a sharp critique of the New York Times, as expressed here, which I think has a much broader applicability both in terms of media and beyond the US 2016 Presidential election. I think they are way too reliant on ? first of all, in 2016 they were very, very subscribed to the […]A

I thought it slightly entertaining the way Noel Grealish popped up the other day to say that in the country’s time of need, what with Brexit etc, he would (no doubt selflessly) support the Government. To add to the good news Sean Canney was reappointed as a junior Minister – not shabby for a man […]A

Police deployed 24 undercover officers to infiltrate a small leftwing political party over a 37-year period, the Guardian can reveal.The police spies infiltrated the Socialist Workers party (SWP) almost continuously between 1970 and 2007, often with more than one undercover officer embedded within the party.
