Is it really a problem of the 'left' or how certain parties have lost their identity and seem to be devoid of principle?

"UK slips on Davos ice
There’s little love for Brexit and its backers in the Alps this week."

The unity is deep says Werner Hoyer, the head of the European Investment Bank. “Nobody has ever brought the Europeans closer together than [David] Cameron and Trump,” he said.

Mind you, quite a few will see Davos - or rather, the typical attendee - as part of the problem.

The wages advertised for some doctors, for example, isn't enough to fulfil Home Office minimum pay rates for non-EU nationals.

Think more and more people are realising that Spiked have only one position - that of the contrarian. It becomes very predictable after a while.

Am convulsed with anticipation waiting for the Spiked article about how badly the groping millionaires have been treated by Twitter.

For some reason I never got into The Fall at the time - I was always more a Wire/Magazine man; and I did see the Witch Trials and Dragnet recently where I go to gigs (they have a record rack or three which is very tempting...) but never did pick them up.

"I've always thought of us as more a Salford band. Simply Red have some good tunes though."

Don't know about the band but he was born in Prestwich. (Actually Broughton Park, I think, which fell under Prestwich at that time - dam boundary changes!)

Wrong!
Just looked it up, born Broughton (not Broughton Park) and move to Prestwich early in life (Thank you Wikipedia)
