Obama isn't even really facing the full blown agression of Faux News yet.

I took part in the Democratic campaign for 2004 in Ohio so saw first hand the activity that the Conservative Right use in the elections. My first time round I felt a nauseating similarity to tactics I had seen in history lessons about the Nazi's. It restored a lot of my faith in the American electorate that Bush won by such a small margin (and that in many ways due to their flawed electoral college system) and that in the next election Bush was rejected.

However Fox (Faux) news is definately worrying. Blairs association with Murdoch is pretty vile when you consider what he is doing in America. Can't wait till the evil old man (Murdoch not dear old Tony) dies and his brats hopefully tear his company apart.

About this Blog

  • From the folks who brought you the weekend, a sometimes happy human blogging from the left of centre and keeping it sceptical, freethinking, secular and humanist. Because every reasonable human being should be a moderate socialist – or drinker – or preferably both. “It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan.

About Labour

  • ‘The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few. Where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe. And where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.’

The Labour Humanist Group

  • A Labour Humanist Group exists to spread awareness of humanism and humanists within the Labour Party and to promote humanist and Labour values. Membership of the Group is open to any person, who agrees with the aims of the group and is a member or supporter of the Labour Party, or a member of a group officially affiliated to the Labour Party.

What is Humanism

  • Humanism is the belief that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. Humanists make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. We seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves. We take responsibility for our actions and work with others for the common good.
