    Nationalism, immigration and racism in the EU

    I'll kick things off with a couple of things worth reading: first everyone's favourite Channel 4 journalist http://blogs.channel4.com/paul-mason-blog/price-eu-awash-nazis/851 and a rejoinder of sorts from my favourite unrepentant Blairite...

    World Cup 2014

    There's a lot of apathy about this, isn't there? Maybe just because England fans have given up even pretending to be excited. Or maybe just cos the PL (and CL?) has been so absorbing people have been distracted. Anyway, at the risk of this just sitting here unloved, here we go with England's...

    Plebgate conspiracy

    Roaring back into life, thanks to Channel 4 News tonight. If you haven't seen it, you really should http://www.channel4.com/news/catch-up/ It now seems within hours of what was probably a very minor argument at Downing St gates, the Met officer on duty lied about Mitchell's reaction (the...

    How crap is Cameron?

    I sometimes think I'm so blinded by knee-jerk loathing of Tories in general that I can't tell the crap from the really really crap. So how crap is Cameron? And would they really be better off ditching him before the next election, something that's now more likely than the LDs ditching Clegg...

    Most embarrassing sleeve

    Scarcely worth its own thread, since none of you – none of you – will be able to top this. But you're welcome to try.

    Public enemy?

    There've been signs of a looming war against the public sector from a the right for a few years now. Since public sector jobs generally can't be outsourced, they're the last bastion of strong trade unionism. The record deficits, caused primarily by private sector insanity, present the perfect...

    Tunisia

    What next? Liberalisation? Islamisation? Another Algeria? Brief shuffling of the pack before the next dictator? Haven't a clue. Anyone here know anything about it? And since the causes of this revolution – food prices rises, authoritarianism and corruption – seem widespread in the Arab world...

    It was only a joke

    Actual straight-up unequivocal hell-in-a-handcart legal insanity. With chapter 2 about to play out here.

    EDL

    I've moved this from the other thread. with the BNP having a disastrouss election and undergoing some kind of oprganisational meltdown, the EDL is likely to be home to most of the action for the far right, so it should get its own thread. They also get a surprisingly easy ride from people who...

    Fire fe de Vatican

    This is pretty shameful. Right, Mel knows what's going on... edit: forgot the link. good to see the Times have got Roger back on the case. They should get him to stand outside the Vatican until the Pope quits [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIQ3UpORjHE

    dumb questions

    I'm working on some Word files sent to me from Germany. It's all in English, but because the file is German it's impossible to spellcheck and does all manner of weird stuff (upside down quotation marks for one). How do I put it into something more manageable?

    Trafigura

    Trafigura and their lawyers are keen no one should know about the allegations of their toxic dumping off the Ivory Coast, er, coast. They're so determined, they've even managed to bypass a 300-year-old law guaranteeing the right to report parliament and got an injunction banning the Guardian...
