Peter Tatchell is doubling down on McDonnell. He's going to raise a trillion. Or £1000 bn as he calls it as if it sounds any less scary. Its like a cross between Le Pen and Kevin Pork. I agree with him about the financial transaction tax but it must be the worst timing ever to put that one out there. Peter's one of the good guys but he should stick to winding up Mugabe. Especially as he might poach him for chancellor.

I had it explained to me by the charisma-free zone that is Rachel Reeves no less. I can't remember the difference or be bothered to find out. A Labour MEP Peter Skinner told me on a tour that there was no practical difference. But he's not too good with his figures http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/04 ... ars-after/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
