Goodbye Sangin

Goodbye Sangin- it has been a complex, lethal, intense and nuanced campaign. But we leave Sangin and the Upper Helmand Valley a safer place to live for all Afghans.

Back from one war to join another fight.

Back from Afghanistan and now I join a different type of war - the fight for Britain as we move towards a General Election. spent the day reading blogs and tweets from Labour activists. I feel there is enough of us to make sure this election is not the forgone conclusion that the Tory Press thinks it is.
One activist I follow on twitter is BevaniteEllie -
and she is also a collector of Historical labour pictures and on the Labour blog of Chris Paul - we get to see this great Labour picture, and now it is up to us Labour members of today to fight like Bevan and Gaitskill did in their time for the future of this country.
