The First Transgender Member of European Parliament

 photo nikki_sinclaire_zps8fc51291.jpgNikki Sinclaire, 45, is a British Member of the European Parliament. She was party secretary of UK Independence Party until she resigned after a disagreement with party leader Nigel Farage over UKIP's alignment with racist, homophobic, and extremist parties. She then founded a new party, the single-issue We Demand a Referendum, which calls for the British public to be given the right to decide on EU membership.

She has also proved unable to collaborate adequately with the voluntary party in the UK, particularly with the regional committee in the West Midlands. The national executive committee has therefore removed the whip; Nikki Sinclaire may no longer describe herself as a UKIP MEP, and she may not stand as a UKIP candidate in the forthcoming general election.

She sued UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom for sex discrimination and won her claim after UKIP offered no defense. Bloom had referred to her as "a queer."

On November 17 Ms. Sinclaire came out as a having been born male. There are reports that there is an autobiography, entitled Never Give Up, available somewhere. I finally located it at Junius Press. It is scheduled to be released on November 25 and will be available on Kindle.

Anti-Capitalist Meet Up: 0 Bread, + Circuses - London Under Occupation

People may be thinking that London under Occupation may be a little over the top to describe the situation for Londoners living under Olympic rule for the next 18 days, but that is in many way an understatement. Between the rights of corporate sponsorship, the occupation by security and armed forces, and a government that is hell-bent on prioritising the needs of sponsors and security concerns over the rights of citizens for freedom of speech and the right to live in peace, the term “under occupation” is an excellent description of the situation.
