“David Cameron made the referendum policy because he didn’t want to risk losing 10-15 sears to UKIP. And look where it’s got us. This has always been because of the Tory party playing party politics with issues that are going to be huge generational changes for all of us… This is all caused by a party putting itself first before the country it is trying to govern.”

21 months after the Grenfell fire:

  • 354 buildings still have flammable cladding in England
  • 176 high-rise buildings in London have still not removed the Grenfell-style cladding.
  • Grenfell bosses received more than £90k and housing staff £131k in bonuses, while some households STILL do not have permanent homes.

There’s STILL no #Justice4Grenfell

We need a General Election and to finally vote the Tories out.

That the establishment media and centrist/right-wing politicians still give any credence to Tony Blair or his views about the Labour Party says a lot about them. Fortunately the general public doesn’t take this same view.

The reaction of the establishment media in denying its role in Islamophobia highlights exactly how complicit they are in perpetuating racism and xenophobia. The deflection of only talking about the role of social media ignores the fact that the media isn’t a detached passive observer of politics,
it’s an active participant. Its coverage has the capacity to legitimise and mobilise the far right.

Islamophobia does not exist on the fringes, it has been accepted and continually perpetuated by the mainstream media.
