Roger Bromley talks to journalist and author Gary Younge, one of our foremost commentators on race, identity and politics.
Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman was today found guilty of election offences by the High Court. The judgment, read this morning at the Royal Courts of Justice, followed the longest election trial since the Second World War. Jennifer Izaakson reports for Ceasefire.
In the tenth and final instalment of his series on the French thinker, Andrew Robinson compares and contrasts Badiou's work with one of Robinson's favourite theorists, and Badiou's béte noire: Gilles Deleuze.
This week evidence has emerged of a LibDem parliamentary candidate sexually assaulting a lap dancer. The indifference of the culprit, his party, and the political class at large to this behaviour epitomises the establishment's toxic attitude towards women and sexual abuse, argues Jennifer Izaakson.

The apparent unmasking of ‘Jihadi John’ has dominated international headlines of the past 48 hours. Far less coverage, however, has been given to troubling revelations that Mohammed Emwazi and others had been subjected to sustained harassment by UK security services for years.

The recent mob murder of a young woman in Afghanistan is the latest in a long series of similar crimes, from the UK to India.
