Sunday Mirror’s Savage Attack On Elderly Women’s Wedding Shows Where The Labour Party Are Heading

The Labour party was created by the Trade Union and Cooperative movement in 1899 because the existing Political parties failed to represent the interests and aspirations of ordinary working people.

I make common cause with those who share a will to create a more collective, tolerant and equitable World.
