Priti Patel ‘misled’ MPs over plans for protest crackdown
Sun 18 Jul 2021

Priti Patel is under fresh pressure after she appears to have misled parliament on proposed powers to crack down on protests and, separately, issued a statement on her asylum bill that does not seem to be supported by evidence.

Both interventions from the home secretary were used to justify some of the most controversial aspects of her bills on policing and the asylum system, which have both been criticised as either undemocratic or cruel.

The developments emerge days after Patel was accused by England footballer Tyrone Mings of “stoking the fire” for racists to abuse his teammates after she dismissed taking the knee as “gesture politics.”

‘Generation Left’ will soon become ‘Population Left’

12 July 2021

A substantial majority of the younger generation are rejecting capitalism and would prefer to live under a socialist economic system, according to new research.

Around 67 per cent of Millennials and Generation Z would prefer to live under socialism, and three quarters believe that capitalism is specifically to blame for climate change and the housing crisis.

Young Britons predominantly associate “socialism” with positive attributes like “equal”, “fair” and “public”, while the term “ca[italism” was associated with negative terms like “exploitative”, “unfair”, “the rich”, and “corporations.”

Over 70 per cent believed that capitalism promotes selfishness, greed and materialism, and that a socialist alternative by contrast would deliver solidarity, compassion and cooperation.
