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

Question Time

Heating the piled politics to a thick lathered buzz - Question Time's audience is a scream-streamed TX Almost over directed for a hyped-up reception - Our screens are re-tuned to TV's deception Below the radar into our licensed homes - finding the softest - in our sofa-slumped zones - Some people will toss their floating votes - they'll re-tune held views via the set-top box to long-lost frequencies of old-school

No Confidence

The Mother of Parliaments emits a low groan - her confidence shot - as our distrust grows We smell the foul essence worn by the rich - it's the stench of the moneyed on the front bench The PM frowns as her voice thins and strains - repeating her mantras - again and again The deceits are disclosed in emotional stories of neglect and fear under the Tories those perfidious

Each headline is a link to the MSM article concerned, because you cannot just make this stuff up and I just wanted to prove it to you August 2014 CONSERVATIVES SECRETLY PLAN TWO NEW GARDEN CITIES Supposed to relieve housing shortages in London and home-counties (and possibly a good way to use up all that lovely surplus land local tory politicians have been buying up over the last 10 years).

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

The Birth of BrExit

In 1997, Liam Fox founded a Think Tank called Atlantic Bridge under the patronage of Margaret Thatcher Liam Fox is on record stating that Atlantic Bridge  had been created to “Defend people of common interests from European Integrationists who would like to pull Britain away from its relationship with the United States”. So not exactly big fans of the Union of Europe even 20 years ago, but great fans of

The History of Grenfell

Introduction If I hadn’t lived through the past 60 years, I would not have believed what has taken place in world politics during the last 25 years. Every day I wake up and look around and see the likes of Trump; Rees-Mogg; Bannion; Hopkins; May; Johnson; Farage; Koch Bros; Mercer; Gove; The disgraced Liam Fox; Sugar; and John Paul Watson slathered all over the Press, TV and Social media….and I

Doughnut Economics

I was inspired to write this as a result of reading Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist by Kate Raworth. I was hoping it would help me understand the subject (beyond my O Level 2), and a quick peek at a review told me it was written in a really good and understandable style. It was fun too.
