In Tutela Nostra Limuria No More?

Well, look how we have exercised that charge. So, wonderful news, say I. And note that, although it has been a crossparty effort, Jeremy Corbyn has been fighting for this neglected and reviled cause for a very long time.

As Corbyn's enemies rally, they will invoke the memory of Denis Healey, Britain's first monetarist Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Defence Secretary who perpetrated the crime against the Chagossians. Let that tradition clear off to the oblivion of the Independent Group with all haste.

And always apply the Chagos Test to anyone who professes to support self-determination for the Falkland Islanders or anyone else. Unless they also support the Chagossians, and with the same amount of vigour, then dismiss them with contempt and derision.

Another hung Parliament is coming, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it. It has become a local commonplace that I am on 30-30-30 with Labour and the Conservatives here at North West Durham, so that any one of us could be the First Past the Post. I will stand for this seat, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email Very many thanks.
