Had a great time in Norwich last weekend supporting Clive Lewis in his attempt to be re-elected as Labour MP for Norwich South. Tomorrow I'm heading down in Plymouth to do a gig in support of Sue Dann and Luke Pollard, Labour candidates for Moor View and Sutton & Devonport respectively.

The Tories have been attacking Jeremy Corbyn today for simply what many in our intelligence and security services have been saying for years, that there are connections between wars that our government has supported in Iraq, Libya and Syria and terrorism here at home.

While Tory spokesmen have queued up to accuse Corbyn of being unpatriotic for saying such a thing, YouGov have just published...

Very disappointed to hear that Morrissey has joined the likes of Katie Hopkins in trying to inflame the situation in the wake of the Manchester outrage. Such behaviour plays into the hands of the extremists who perpetrated these terrible crimes - the likes of Salman Abedi and Thomas Mair hope that their murderous actions will precipitate a jihad/race war between Islam and the West. When we...

The news from Manchester is heartbreaking. I keep thinking of the faces of the young women who made up the vast majority of the audience at the concert I did with Bastille last night, of a similar age to those at the Manchester Arena, out for a night to enjoy music they love.

My thoughts are with the victims families and all those affected by this horrendous attack. Words are hard to find at...

All the Tory papers are loudly defending Theresa May's dementia tax this morning. Libby Purves in the Times is scolding people for being "sentimental" about their family homes (how dare they!) while in the Daily Mail Dominic Lawson is attacking Labour for their plan to raise the money for social care from rises in corporation tax, making "work and enterprise pay" (the market must be left alone...

In the wake of the Tory manifesto launch yesterday, this is a really good idea. If you're like me and have no grandparents left (I am actually someone's grandparent, on a technicality) then speak to a pensioner. Ask them why a party promising to be 'strong and stable' seem determined to undermine the security of the weak and infirm.

Theresa May's 'Strong & Stable' is a party slogan is straight out of Orwell's 1984. She so weak that she dare not face the other party leaders to debate her policies and Tory Brexit will plunge Britain into years of instability.
