Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

The Editor doesn’t moderate this blog,  3 volunteers do, they are very lenient to provide you a free speech space but if it’s just deranged abuse or putting words in bloggers mouths to have a pointless argument, we don’t bother publishing.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. ‘Aboot’ Trotter. He’s gone off to another place. Where he can talk his historical knowledge and not matter a bit. Youse seem not to care. No one seems to care for our great, true, imperative cause.

    • Give it a rest sumsuch. The way that factions start to spit at each other when there is ‘trouble at mill’ is one of the reasons that the people who profess to have concern for humanity and for each other, and the poor, and the conditions, can never get anywhere for long. The wealthy know what is important – stick together and keep the money and never give a sucker an even break, only appear to, and even then not for long. Using one’s brains is essential and looking at the perspectives from different angles will be necessary.

      Some Sun Tzu for our own individual thinking:-
      If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain to be in peril.
      If your opponent is of choleric temper, irritate him.
      Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.

      The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand.

      Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death.


      • I know Right from Left. Have read Trotter for 30 years. Incredibly inspired by him in the day — vivifying in the dark days of the 90s. So, ideas matter for our cause, his posts lately are a fullstop.

        • Oh what Cause is that? Seems that if people are lefties in their category of politics, they often do what feels good to them – Be-cause….? There are too many causes for any one to offer a clear and practical and principled way. The belief and dedicated way must be the light to work by – remembering humanitarian, practical, fair, honest and playful (to make life worth living). Causes – bah.James Sit Down (with me)

          • Fuck, you’re an idiot. Coming here I was just going to say you’re a ‘tree’ man and I’m a ‘forest’ man. You lost in details — which also help — me trying to make sense of the details. Trotter has gone to the Right. Why do you think GS is here now?

  2. I also note no columns by Trotter here lately, as further evidence. Martyn’s fury, much loved sometimes by me, is very politic. Key didn’t deserve his blast, in my view. Many others did and do.
