Corbyn’s foreign policy would make both Britain and the world safer: let’s rally behind his vision

Jeremy Corbyn’s opponents never cease to attack his unorthodox foreign policy stance.  This has ranged from recently being called “irresponsible” and a “threat to our national security” by defence secretary Michael Fallon, to former Prime Minister David Cameron pettily labelling Corbyn a ‘terrorist sympathiser’. Let’s not forget the contribution that the pro-Tory media outlets have … Continue reading

How a new (and perhaps the last) Israel-Hezbollah war will breakout

Israel and Hezbollah relations are beyond repair. It is inevitable that a conflict between the two will emerge. Neither side could claim victory in the inconclusive war of 2006, despite both professing themselves as the winner. Tensions have remained at boiling point since, and neither have been shy about directing threats at each other. Naftali Bennett … Continue reading

Why Syria is Iraq once again

The Syrian war propaganda clearly justifies US intervention. Sound familiar? No doubt you have all heard about the alleged gas attack by the Assad regime in Idlib. While hundreds of Syrians were directly suffering, people pinned the blame on different actors in the region: some have obviously blamed Assad, including the Western media; others say it is a ‘false … Continue reading

Why Black Friday is a complete scam

Retailers simply inflate the prices of ‘bargains’ in advance, before reducing them on the day. Continue reading

Did alternative media really help Trump win?

  The world is still in a state of bewilderment. Trump’s shock victory as President baffled both the people absorbing Mainstream Media polls, and those behind Big Media themselves. Clearly many were oblivious to the subtle influence that alternative media had on individuals across the United States. Of course, much of this exposed the Clinton … Continue reading

A warning to the liberal left

Many are horrified at the support Donald Trump has received. Yet this condescending attitude towards his supporters has only enhanced it, and will continue to do so. With the US Presidential Elections just a matter of days away, people across the world are terrified at the prospect of Donald Trump winning. In the West, the … Continue reading

A step into Qatar: Peace, Prosperity and Inequality

An evening at the ‘Souq Waqif’ in Doha. “Here, it is very peaceful” A Qatari immigrant from Bangladesh tells me. “The government looks after its people, there is very little crime, and there is much order in society.” I arrived in Qatar in almost unbearable heat– peaking at 50 degrees. Even many locals found it … Continue reading

For peace in Syria, one has to look further than Assad’s future

The world has its eyes firmly set on the Syrian Civil War; a future settlement for the region is far from established. The dispute from world powers over Assad’s future is largely the cause of this indecision; the US and NATO want him gone, while Russia and China want him to stay. The longer it … Continue reading

There is an easier solution for Brexit…

  Since the ‘Leave’ campaign was victorious on June 23, there has been a lack of clarity regarding the solution for Brexit. While different ideas have been thrown about, nothing has been set in stone. Even recently elected Prime Minister Theresa May, who staunchly declared ‘Brexit means Brexit’, has not offered a solid direction for … Continue reading

Andrea Leadsom quits Tory leadership race – the result of a smear campaign

This article was originally published in JMA by myself.   In the run up to the EU referendum, many people had not even heard of Andrea Leadsom. Going from a sideline Member of Parliament, she gained much prominence after appearing in a debate alongside Boris Johnson, Angela Eagle, Nicola Sturgeon and others — as a … Continue reading
