Labourlist Column

My Labourlist column this week is about the attacks in Norway: http://www.labourlist.org/rest-in-peace-young-comrades

It is always a good idea to wait a while before commenting.

I think it is true to say that rightwing violence has very largely been ignored by the media in this country. A few years ago a large haul of explosives was found at the home of a BNP activist and the media ignored it for ages.

People can send a message of condolence by visiting the Hope Not Hate website. A vigorous response will help make such acts in future less likely as people will not want to do things that are counterproductive.

Super piece Luke. I had turned away from the blogs over the last few days as I was so upset at the tone that some of our comrades were taking but your piece is one of the most thoughtful and human I have read. Rest in peace dear comrades. We will strive to live up to your vision for our world.

Excellent piece Luke.

1) Have a good cry.

I feel much the same way as Toby acted in TWW.
