Brexit is a class betrayal. So why is Labour colluding in it? | John Harris

The Tory leave elite is dragging the country towards a disaster that the opposition could still avert by calling for a people’s vote
Over the past two and a half years, while the most vocal leave and remain campaigners have endlessly yelled at each other, Brexit has often presented itself as a case study in contradiction and complexity. Certainly, whenever I have spent time in leave-voting areas, I have always felt deeply ambivalent:…

Without a fair tax on tech, it could be the end of the state as we know it | John Harris

Big tech companies are transforming societies – but their pitiful contributions aren’t enough to help governments adapt

Tell us about the things you do that represent non-capitalist living

From freecycling to volunteering, we’d like to hear about the things you do that go against the capitalist and consumerist grain
“Most of us would say, if asked, that we live in a capitalist society, but vast amounts of how we live our everyday lives – our interactions with and commitments to family lives, friendships, avocations, membership in social, spiritual and political organisations – are in essence non capitalist or even anticapitalist, full of things…
