THE SUN REVEALS WHAT THE TORIES HAVE PLANNED FOR OUR NHS

In today’s (28/04/17) Sun newspaper editorial, the paper attacked our NHS and in doing so revealed how it would like to see the NHS run, after a possible Theresa May landslide General election victory.

The Sun is owned by Worldwide media billionaire Rupert Murdoch, who owns 3 national newspapers and is currently trying to get full control of UK Sky TV.He has massive power and influence over the Conservative party.  Mr Murdoch also helps the Conservative party plant it’s agenda in his flagship newspaper The Sun, read by over 1,666,715m readers.

So today’s editorial comes as no surprise to many from the left. As many people fear that the Tory agenda of destroying our National Health service by running it to the ground, selling it off to the highest bidder and bringing in charges for patients, will become a reality, if Theresa May wins on 8th June.

UNITE UNION CONDEMN TOM WATSON

20/03/17


On Monday morning Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the Labour party, said Grassroots Labour group Momentum is hoping to get financial support from Britain’s largest trade union, Unite.

He said on BBC Radio 4’s Today “enough is enough, this has got to stop… I’m afraid there are some people who do not have our electoral interests at heart”.

Mr Watson said: “We have never seen the biggest union organising a political faction in the Labour Party with the tacit approval of the leadership.”

Mr Watson said he had a duty to “call out” what appeared to be a “secret plan” to take over the Labour Party and he urged Mr McCluskey to publicly state Unite would not fund Momentum under his leadership.

The Unite Union issued the following statement: 

“As Unite has made it clear it is exclusively for our executive council to determine which organisations we affiliate to. There are no plans for Unite to affiliate to Momentum. For the record, Len McCluskey has never met Jon Lansman to discuss this or any other matter. 

“It is extraordinary that the deputy leader of the Labour party should  interfere in Unite’s democracy in this way, and it is very disappointing that he was allowed to make his unsupported claims without being challenged, and that the BBC ignored the Unite statement with which it had been provided well in advance. 

“Mr Watson’s latest, and misguided, campaign is part of an unprecedented pattern of interference in the current Unite general secretary election by elected Labour politicians who should, frankly, be concentrating on their own responsibilities. 

“Mr Watson is a Unite member with a right to a vote and a view. But he should remember that, first, he is deputy leader of the Labour party with the obligations that this senior post imposes, and second that Unite is not a subsidiary of any political organisation.”

Unite has complained to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme that the statement the union provided in good faith last night was only used in part and following representations from the union this morning. The union has also complained that Mr Watson was allowed to make his extraordinary claims about Unite and its general secretary without being subject to any demand for evidence.”

The Guardian censor Ken Loach’s letter 

Ken Loach tweeted today that The Guardian chose to delete the first and last line from his letter in today’s paper.

The letter was critical of how The Guardian newspaper has treated Jeremy Corbyn.

​THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG ‘CON’ ON THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE!

​THE CHANCELLOR’S BIG ‘CON’ ON THE NATIONAL LIVING WAGE!

The chancellor will unveil in the autumn statement, that the National living wage will rise to £7.50 an hour in 2017. He will use this announcement to feed into the spin that the government are on the side of the “just about managing” – or “Jams”.

But according to forecasts by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), an advisory public body established by the UK government to provide independent economic forecasts, the National living wage should go up to £7.60 in 2017, if it is to reach the government pledge of £9.00 an hour by 2020.

So Philip Hammond is in fact making a cut to the lowest paid workers wages by 10p an hour.

JEREMY CORBYN- “UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL..”

JEREMY CORBYN STATEMENT
30th June 2016

image

” United we stand, divided we fall is one of the oldest and truest slogans of the labour movement.

After last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is split.

The Government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.

Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the Government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the Government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes.

To do that we need to stand together. Since I was elected leader of our party nine months ago, we have repeatedly defeated the Government over its attacks on living standards. Last month, Labour become the largest party in the local elections. In Thursday’s referendum, a narrow majority voted to leave, but two thirds of Labour supporters backed our call for a Remain vote.

I was elected leader of our party, for a new kind of politics, by 60% of Labour members and supporters.  The need for that different approach now is greater than ever.

Our people need Labour Party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite. As leader it is my continued commitment to dedicate our party’s activity to that goal.”

JEREMY CORBYN FULL STATEMENT ON ‘NO CONFIDENCE VOTE’

Jeremy corbyn issued the following statement, after 172 Labour MPs supported a motion of ‘No Confidence’ in his leadership.

“In the aftermath of last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is divided.

The government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.

Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes.

Last month, Labour become the largest party in the local elections. In Thursday’s referendum, a narrow majority voted to leave, but two thirds of Labour supporters backed our call for a remain vote.

I was democratically elected leader of our party for a new kind of politics by 60% of Labour members and supporters, and I will not betray them by resigning. Today’s vote by MPs has no constitutional legitimacy.

We are a democratic party, with a clear constitution. Our people need Labour party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite behind my leadership at a critical time for our country.”

ENERGY SECRETARY FACING SECOND ALLEGATION IN TORY ELECTION EXPENSES SCANDAL.

Energy Secretary Amber Rudd, MP for Hastings and Rye is facing a second allegation of failing to declare election expenses in the last General election.

On Sunday it was reported in the national press that Ms Rudd used a local version of national online advertisements designed by ad firm M&C Saatchi, but failed to declare the ad in her election spending returns.

Ms Rudd posted a version of the same ad on her YouTube page on March 29, 2015, with the slogan changed from ‘Recovering Economy: Don’t Let Labour Wreck It’ to ‘Unemployment down by 1,921 in Hastings and Rye since 2010.’

Now B heard media have learnt that a
controversial wraparound advert that appeared on the front page of the local newpaper, the Hastings Observer, just a week before the General election was paid for by the Conservative party national election campaign despite being aimed directly at local voters.

SACK LAURA KUENSSBERG PETITION TAKEN DOWN, AFTER BEING HIJACKED BY SEXIST TROLLS

PETITION TO SACK BBC’S LAURA KUENSSBERG TAKEN DOWN, AFTER BEING HIJAKED BY SEXIST TROLLS.

A petition started in the wake of a perecived bias against the Labour party and it’s Leader Jeremy Corbyn by BBC news Political editor Laura Kuenssberg
has been taken down by Joe, who started it.

The petition had been signed by over 35,000 people, after only 4 days, before todays news.

A very strong article appeared in the Guardian today linking the petition with sexist trolls on twitter and saying the petition had a sexist agenda.

Joe, who started the petition replied to
accusation in  the Guardian, he said: “This petition has precisely zero to do with Kuenssberg’s gender. Regardless of the gender you identify with, there is no excuse for biased reporting and misrepresentation of facts when you represent an organisation that has been famed for its impartiality and balanced approach.”

When you click on link to petition now, the following statement appears.

Joe said the following:

“When I started my campaign I was trying to raise a serious issue about what I saw as a reporter not being balanced and fair in the way that the news was covered. My petition has since been hijacked by a group of people who absolutely do not share my views.

I would like to reassure everyone that I am a passionate advocate for equality in all areas, not just gender equality. This petition has precisely zero to do with gender.

As a result of the sexist trolls who have attempted to derail my petition, I have decided to take it down. “

CAMERON IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW CARMAKERS TO BREAK AIR POLLUTION LIMITS UNTIL 2021!!

CAMERON IS LOBBYING TO ALLOW CARMAKERS TO BREAK AIR POLLUTION LIMITS UNTIL 2021!!

After the #COP15 agreement was signed, the UK Prime Minster David Cameron said:
“We’ve secured our planet for many, many generations to come – and there is nothing more important than that.”

And only months after Volkswagen  admitted that the diesel emissions scandal was the result of a collection of failures within the company.

We learn that the UK government have been pushing for a weakening of air pollution limits and a delay to their introduction in response to lobbying from the motor industry, documents reveal.

The government’s papers called for carmakers to be allowed to far exceed the nitrogen oxides (NOx) limit of 80mg/km until 2021, and to be allowed to go 40% over the current limit after that.

Alan Andrews, a lawyer for ClientEarth, said: “The decision to water down vehicle emission standards was a political stitch-up by the commission and an unelected committee of technocrats that will force us all to breathe illegal levels of air pollution for years to come. These rules are illegal and should be vetoed by the European parliament. If they fail to, the British government should take legal action to strike them down.

The Department for the Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) has accepted that more than 50,000 people a year die prematurely as a result of air pollution in the UK. The figure includes about 29,000 deaths hastened by inhaling minute particles of oily, unburnt soot emitted by all petrol engines and an estimated 23,500 by the invisible but toxic gas NOx emitted by diesel engines.

BLAIR’S FIRST OPEN ATTACK ON CORBNY’S LABOUR PARTY

image

Tony Blair has not openly commented on the Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn, until now.

But In the Christmas issue of Right-wing UK magazine ‘The Spectator’,  the former Prime Minister has written a blog attacking the way Jeremy Corbyn is running the Labour party and the direction Corbyn is taking the party.

” All wings of the Labour Party which support the notion of the Labour Party as a Party aspiring to govern, rather than as a fringe protest movement agree on the tragedy of the Labour Party’s current position.”

Blair forgets that Jeremy Corbyn was elected Leader of the Labour party with the biggest mandate from members in living memory, with almost 60% voting for him.

Blair contues: ” Right now we’re in danger of not asking the right questions never mind failing to get the right answers. All of it is about applying values with an open mind; not boasting of our values as a way of avoiding the hard thinking the changing world insists upon.”

Blair forgets that membership for the Labour party is higher than at anytime under him.

Whichever party people from the centre left in the UK support. All would agree that Blair’s vision for our Country is out of date and is for the few and not the many.
