  4. Jeremy Corbyn

    Sometimes in life you just have to put your hands up and say you got it wrong. I was vocally critical of Jeremy Corbyn, I genuinely believed in his shaky first few months he was going to lead Labour to a catastrophic defeat and return them to the wilderness of the Foot years. Even recently I...

  6. Observer editorial - brutal, but on the money

    Observer Editorial is brutal! How did it come to this? How could a politician hailed for her courage and tactical acumen a year ago be spending this weekend holed up in Downing Street, friendless and widely ridiculed, a prisoner of her furious party and of events that have spun out of her...

  7. Time to put the Brexit negotiations on hold

    10 days before the most important negotiations in my lifetime take place, and we don't have a government. May will be lucky to survive until they start, and even if/when she cobbles together a deal with the DUP, there's almost certainly going to be another election this year, and who knows what...

  9. Proportional representation

    I think the Labour Party should include a commitment to PR in their next manifesto. As the chart below shows, if we we'd been electing on that basis on Thursday, Corbyn could well have been Prime Minister in a coalition today, assuming the Liberals had learned their lesson and didn't prop up the...

    Is there an Edinburgh Council at the moment? Just realised that I don't recall if a ruling group was formed or not, but cannot imagine that all councilors who were elected claiming to have the city's best interests at heart have spent over a month failing to organise themselves?
