The R Word

See it, say it, sorted. What makes it any different when it comes to racial abuse? Over the last few weeks, the Conservative party have deliberated who would make the best Prime Minister for our country. In a time of great uncertainty, who will be able to handle the Brexit instability? Who will be able to act accordingly for the ongoing climate catastrophe? Importantly, who will best represent the people?

Why just “Friends of Israel”? Whats wrong with the rest of the world?

Stop the world I want to get off In the UK, since the days of Thatcher, have been told that Society doesn’t exist and that all Humans are simply motivated by self-interest. If you stop and think for a moment, its complete Bollox, but plenty of people bought into it anyway,  attracted by the promise of “Bright Shiny Things”. To hell with the Red Tape, the cost to the environment

Straight pride’s calling is to silence homosexuals, not uplift heterosexuals.

What’s all the fuss about? June marks Pride month for the LGBTQIAP community. “Where’s our straight pride?!” cries John, white, 56 yo, having never been attacked simply for the love he expresses to his wife and family. June was designated after the Stonewall riots of June 1969, where members of the LGBT+ community were attacked in police raids and began an uprising against their oppression. The normalised behaviour to not

Surveillance everywhere, just not for Boris.

Keeping your nose out of your neighbours business seems to have been a part of the basis on which Boris Johnsons’ neighbour should not have recorded the altercation at Boris Johnsons (Possibly the UK’s next Prime Ministers) current place of residence. The other part of the argument was that recording such an event was a breach of privacy. In an age where we are monitored by so many different surveillance

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. If you have 90 minutes to spare I thoroughly recommend it. As usual, he really gets to the heart of the matter. Throughout this piece, I will link to specific clips from the film so that you can access the relevant detail even if you don’t
