This is National Action, the neo-Nazi group that Zack Davies followed. Why aren’t they labelled a terror group? — 6:02 am - June 26th 2015 "The revolution doesn't start a thousand miles away, it starts with you." It could be a statement put out by ISIS, the group that has encouraged its sympathisers all over the world to take action in defense of the Caliphate.

Our counter-terrorism policy is a mess and it’s about time Labour said so — Here are three predictions for the next few years: 1) ISIS will continue to consolidate its territory in Syria and Iraq, and extend its reach in Afghanistan and Pakistan at the expense of al-Qaeda and Taliban groups; 2) there won't be a major military assault on ISIS due to the reluctance of US and Arab leaders; 3) more western Muslims will go on to join ISIS.

Jeremy Corbyn earns fourth trade union endorsement — A third trade union has today given Jeremy Corbyn their endorsement in the race to become next Labour leader. The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has today said that Corbyn is the "obvious choice for trade unions."

Why the left keeps crashing and burning, and what to do about it — Cast your mind five years back, to the summer of 2010, when 50,000 students descended on London to protest the rise in tuition fees. They caused literal and political damage, forcing the government on the defensive and causing incalculable harm to the Lib Dems. Where is that student movement now?

93% of Immigrants Are Proud To Live In Britain, Nearly 9 out of 10 Respect Our Political System — 8:57 am - June 16th 2015 This came to my inbox last night, and I think the findings are worth sharing in full. Important to note, this was commissioned by a centre-right group, not a leftwing group.

We failed to defeat the Tories because the left has stopped understanding the public — When the exit-poll predictions came out on election night, now just a month ago, they felt like a body blow. I recall feeling physically sick. But the real pain came afterwards. The psychological blow of realising we on the left had misunderstood the public so badly was worse. Much worse.

Labour has “turned the page backwards”, says David Miliband — David Miliband has critiqued Labour's past five years in office, saying the party had "turned the page backwards." Miliband is currently President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee. He left British politics in 2013, three years after he lost the 2010 Labour leadership contest to his brother Ed Miliband.

Tristram Hunt slams “timid” approach of ‘35% strategy’ in major speech on Labour’s future — Tristram Hunt will fuel speculation that he intends to stand for Labour leader with a major speech tomorrow (Tuesday) about where the party has failed, and outlining how he thinks it must do better. In particular, the Shadow Education Secretary will take aim at the "timid, institutionalised caution" of Labour's policy offer and electoral strategy.

Diane Abbott officially declares she’s running to be Labour’s candidate for London Mayor, as nominations open today — Diane Abbott is officially launching her mayoral campaign today. Abbott announced back in November that she was planning on running to be mayor and she recently created the Twitter account DianeforLondon but today she will officially declare that she's running.

He may be gone - but here’s why Miliband’s legacy will continue to define Labour — On the day of Ed Miliband's resignation, I texted one of his closest aides to ask why he wouldn't stay on as caretaker while a new leader was chosen.
