Call it what it is: the climate crisis

No planet B “I want you to act as if our house is on fire” a 16 year old school girl from Sweden proclaimed. The IPCC reported that if action is not taken immediately, within just 12 years time we will notice irreversible effects. We live in a world which has become obsessed with political scandals but what if we alternatively become enamoured with the beauty of nature surrounding us.

Welcome to 1984

This was a post by Chris Renwick on Facebook and has been reproduced here in case they decide it is against their "values" and delete it. Here’s what I’m really struggling to understand. All I’ve ever heard from people, for years, is: “bloody bankers and their bonuses” “bloody rich and their offshore tax havens “ “bloody politicians with their lying and second homes”  “bloody corporations paying less tax than me”

TPS – Total Parking Solutions Scam

Parking Penalty Notices are the thing of nightmares for many motorists and with 32.8 million vehicles licensed in Great Britain, parking is becoming a lucrative system of making money from a simple plot of land. Whilst Local Authority parking sites are regulated under the 2004 Traffic Management Act, private companies are not, they are free to charge unsuspecting motorists whatever they see fit.

The Corporate Media do not want you to understand the Local Election Results

Soundbites aside In the run up to the local elections I pestered all of my friends and family to vote. I cast my vote in Leeds which remained a Labour hold overall. My home town also remained an overall Labour hold. And yet when the news reporters discuss Leeds and Lincolnshire, they jump straight to smearing the left with any losses they can grasp. Once all 248 councils were declared,

I Will Cry For You Venezuela

The underlying problem In 2007, John Pilger made a documentary called War On Democracy  covering several S. American nations but including Venezuela in particular.

Brexitrage

I am furious about Brexit, I am incandescent with rage and have been for months now and it is a fury driven by many different reasons.  I am not furious at the people who voted to leave the EU, I fully understand why they voted that way, what I am furious at is being manipulated by politicians working solely for their own personal gain and this is an attempt to
