Labour: how NOT to respond to the threat from UKIP

liberalconspiracy.org — 4:24 pm - October 12th 2014 We are back to the regular news cycle whereby Westminster freaks out over how to the threat from UKIP. The political parties will respond with the same promises, soundbites and narratives. Then they'll go back to existing plans until the next 'crisis'.

Anti ISIS protesters in London now outside Downing St.

Nick Clegg’s best moments as Lib Dem leader

labourlist.org — Sadly, the rumours weren't true, and Nick Clegg did not resign, but that shouldn't stop us reflecting on Nick Clegg's best moments as leader of the Lib Dems. Here's a few highlights: When he did that election broadcast called "Say goodbye to broken promises" It's got funnier with time.

How the Labour leadership misunderstand two of their biggest problems

labourlist.org — Even before Ed Miliband entered the stage last Tuesday afternoon to give his conference speech, a few of us knew there would be no big surprise. A source close to the leader had earlier told a group of assembled journalists and activists that they wanted to focus on the "big six" national goals, not a surprise that would grab all the attention.

The real threat from the Islamic State is to Muslims, not the west

m.aljazeera.com — The rise of the Islamic State group is probably the worst event in recent Muslim history since 9/11. "I was like any other regular Canadian. I watched hockey, I went to the cottage in the summertime, I loved to fish, I wanted to go hunting...

Why Pakistanis should be angry as everyone else with what happened in Rotherham

labourlist.org — The exposé of child sexual abuse in Rotherham over 16 years reads more like a horror story than an academic report. It was more than a dossier on how girls (and a few boys) were abused by gangs of men; it was also a damning indictment of multiple cover-ups at a senior institutional level.

The real threat from the Islamic State is to Muslims, not the west

aljazeera.com — "I was like any other regular Canadian. I watched hockey, I went to the cottage in the summertime, I loved to fish, I wanted to go hunting... I was a regular person," said Abu Muslim in the last video he recorded before his death.

The demand that more Muslims ‘must condemn ISIS’ is racist and ridiculous

liberalconspiracy.org — Let's get two caveats out of the way first: I'm neither a Muslim and nor am I religious in my daily life. I come from a Sikh family. Secondly, anyone who's read my writing knows I have zero sympathy for religiously motivated terrorists.

The ISIS leader was NOT trained by the CIA or Mossad, and Snowden didn’t say it

liberalconspiracy.org — There are three common rules when people discuss politics: 1) they are willing to believe anything on the internet if it confirms their prejudices 2) they don't want to accept people of their tribe do awful things 3) they find a way to blame America or the UK for most of the world's problems A recent example: the claim that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - the self proclaimed leader of Islamic State in Syria and Iraq - was funded or trained by the CIA or Israel's Mossad, and that this was apparently revealed by Edward Snowden.

Sayeeda Warsi’s resignation shows why most people like me will never vote Conservative

labourlist.org — If you wanted one iron rule about British elections, it's that most non-whites will avoid the Tories and vote Labour.
