A blog with news, personal thoughts and ideas on politics by Nick Venedi. Current, relevant, critical, sometimes controversial and hopefully interesting. I support Water Aid and Battersea Dogs Home. Includes my personal diaries during my time in Lambeth and my involvement with the TU movement. The events I describe are as I saw and understood them at the time, they are part of my experience.

EU and left
The hypocracy of the left
I held senior elected positions with Britains largest TU for many years and worked with many on the left. They always understood the danger of a large pro boss organisation like the EU and feared the dominance of monopolies. But then suddenly and out of the blue many of these people have decided to do a huge U turn and are now in full support of this nasty slow moving Levithan! I can not understand where the warnings they were giving me for so many years have all been thrown in the bin and how they can possibly support such an unprogressive organisation like the EU!!!
