Opinion – Jeremy Corbyn faces humiliation as more than 100 Labour MPs plan to defy leader over Syria air strikes – Telegraph – John Gelmini

I fear that Corbyn may not resign as Dr Alf surmises he might. He will not climb down and sadly the man, much as it pains me to say it, has a point.

Whilst I favour bombing ISIS, what the Prime Minister proposes is not going to deal with the problem because already with the excessive amount of advanced warning we have given them ISIS commanders have already decamped to Mosul and elsewhere whilst the rank and file beheaders and jihadists have copied the North Vietnamese and built a maze of electrified tunnels under Raqua in which they can ride out the bombing. Civilians and those under ISIS’s tutelage remain on the surface, hostages to their Orc-like masters.

Doing what David Cameron suggests will not deal effectively with ISIS and it leaves their financiers and the duplicitous President Erdogan and his familyn free to promote more mayhem, with intermediaries potenially profiteering.

Exclusive: Yanis Varoufakis opens up about his five month battle to save Greece – the New Statesman

This is an outstanding, must-read article by the New Statesman. Check it out!

Exclusive: Yanis Varoufakis opens up about his five month battle to save Greece.

I am not a Yanis Varoufakis fan. He was always too brash and arrogant for me. But Varoufakis does have a better understanding of economics than many Eurozone finance ministers. The sad conclusion for me is that economics is always subordinated below prevailing politics. With democracy being the loser, there’s an increasing polarization in Europe towards the extremes of the political spectrum.

Surely, this article and many similar articles in the UK’s media will influence UK voters ahead of the Brexit referendum?
