Written by Alan Woods Tuesday, 27 September 2016

Trump and Clinton - Gage Skidmore CC BY-SA 4.0 In ancient Rome the ruling class maintained its hold on power by offering the people bread and circuses.

Written by Rob Sewell Monday, 26 September 2016

corbyn-warThe sense of shock amongst the Labour right wing was evident from the look on their faces as they streamed out of the Party Conference on Saturday.
