The Road To Justice
  • This section of the website was renamed in January 2020. It had been called 'The Road to Corbyn', the title of my publication in 2016.
  • I had no choice. The Tories were returned to power in December 2019. Jeremy Corbyn will never lead a Labour government.
  • We did have a good run though – nearly five years of inspiration remains impressive - socialism has become a political force again.
  • So, this page is retitled: ‘The Road to Justice’.
  • Still the same message, though!

  • My present literary venture – a biography of Jago Stone (1928-1988), artist.
