What went wrong on 12 December? To mark the paperback release of #ClearBrightFuture  on 6 Feb, here's the first of a 2'20" video series about the ideas of the book, and their relevance to the struggle ahead... pls RT.

@drgerke1  And I do not think RLB's team has broken enough from the people who oversaw this catastrophe to be able to win. We can't run the party from the left given the severe differences within the left. We need a radical left social-democratic leader, and Keir and Emily both fit the bill

@drgerke1  But "alliance of the centre and the left " means much more than that: it means potential voting pacts with all non-Tory parties to prevent Britain's descent into a managed democracy, and to enforce radical climate action from below... a modern Popular Front.

I'm sorry @jessphillips  is out of the Labour leadership race. She represents a small but tenacious constituency in the party who could easily have quit during the TIG debacle and who I hope stay with us. Now it's down to various strands of the social-democratic left

At least Steve Howell has the decency to speak on the record here but he's mistaken. With HNH/TSSA I argued we could *not* win election with Remain votes only... and to avoid an election framed around Brexit: the Second Ref was also aimed at Leave voters - nobody listened. 👇🏽

Defend the BBC - sure... from itself. The next boss has to wake up and smell the ideology - my @NewStatesman  column:

Don't miss this London event: me, @AyoCaesar  and @LarryforWitney  - right after the Iowa Caucuses... for President @BernieSanders  ...

I've signed this petition to the BBC: Stop the Victoria Derbyshire Show being axed #VictoriaLIVE  - - it's about killing any BBC outlet that drives its own journalism agenda

Boris Johnson's "War cabinet" will spend at wartime levels on state propaganda. Because it's a war against you, the poor, the students, the old, the sick, the young families - oh and manufacturing. It's a war for greed and racism. Which side are you on?

Priti Patel's callous diatribe against the poor of Barrow and other places went viral. So the BBC took it down. Here it is again 👇🏽

Morning, media students: this is a shot of Boris Johnson's launch event. Now watch last night's TV news coverage of it and repeat after me "I must not manufacture consent"....

I worked 13 years at the BBC. This will have been the result of direct pressure, exerted from the very top, on people whose only desire in life is become the next PR guru for Downing Street, or get an invite to Rupert Murdoch's parties 👇👇👇

Here's the Corbyn speech that Sky ran in full and which BBC TV news is suppressing

Imagine Corbyn's team did this on the eve of the election. The Tory sense of entitlement and invulnerability against the media is stunning ... and fed by the daily sycophancy this was a break from 👇🏽

Let's get clear what the BBC got wrong over the Leeds incident. It relied on a single, partisan source with no corroborative evidence, providing right-wing newspapers with a BBC branded fake news story.

Five minutes befor Gove turned up at C4 the Tories fed Buzzfeed the threat to revoke the channel's licence - ours is becoming a "managed democracy"

Marr: Nurses are going to food banks Theresa Weird: "There are many complex reasons for people going to food banks" THE MAIN ONE IS POVERTY!

BBC’s Jon Sopel reporting May pushed for early strike “to avoid having to get parliamentary consent”. That’s the democracy you now live in.
