  2. Owen Jones

    Attacked last night on a night out, far right thugs suspected. The question is; Brexit has emboldened the far right in this country, how do you get them back in their box and close the lid from here?

  5. The disappearance of Madeleine McCann

    Just started watching the documentary on Netflix. Such a sad but interesting story. I hope we find out the truth of what happened one day. FWIW, I think the parents know a lot more than they make out to believe.
