UK tories cutting social security

We pay into the tax system when we are working and when times are tough we have a small part of that tax held for when we need it, social security.

From the Socialist Party (UK)

Tories make the poor pay say Socialists as benefits cap is introduced

Paula Mitchell, Socialist Party London regional secretary said: “This is yet another demonstration of the Tories obsessional hatred of working class and poor people. Instead of getting people into work by creating jobs they are forcing some of the poorest people in society into destitution. Up to 40,000 households will now face the prospect of not being able to pay the rent or buy food.

The government claims that this is in the name of “changing a culture” and putting an end to “days of blank cheques”. It’s a shame that they have never applied these principle to the bankers who caused the economic crisis in the first place who have had plenty of blank cheques written for them in the form of huge bail outs.

Unfortunately the Labour Party is too busy attacking trade unionists to put up any real opposition. They accept the same logic as the Tories of kowtowing to big business.

This is why Bob Crow made the call for a new party at the weekend. In the elections next year, hundreds of trade unionists, socialists and ordinary working people, fed up with Labour’s inability to stand up for us, will be standing candidates in the elections under the banner of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC).

In order to end worklessness and poverty a government would have to unroll a programme of public works in order to create real jobs. The money is there – if big companies aren’t prepared to invest, they should be nationalised under democratic control.

We call for the trade union movement to work alongside unemployed activists and anti-cuts campaigners to build a mass movement against austerity. A 24 hour general strike should be the next step in the campaign against the ConDemolition of our rights and living standards.”

UKIP “closest to a traditional Conservative agenda”

By Leon J Williams

Conservative Lord Tebbit has stated that tories who are fed up with the coalition will turn to UKIP as they are the “closest to a traditional Conservative agenda”.

UKIP full of shitThis comes as news that Tory MP Priti Patel’s father (Sushil Patel) would be standing for UKIP in Thursday’s UK local elections much to the media hungry joy of UKIP leader Nigel Farage and the disappointment of the tories.

Of course UKIP have taken this as a real media winner to say ‘Hey look! we’re not completely racist!’
Sure, they love the foreigners who will vote for them and vilify those who don’t as spongers of tax payers money and stealers of ‘British’ jobs (that’s white British of course!)

UKIP, like their Conservative friends work for the rich, the banks, big business. Think the tory led coalition is bad? It’ll seem like a picnic if UKIP ever got in power!

Conservative councillor resigns after racist remarks

John CherryConservative (Tory) councillor John Cherry has resigned from the party after making ‘unacceptable’ remarks about ethnic minorities in London schools.

The now former Tory councillor basically called foreigners lazy, he said:

“There are certain nationalities where they are uncertain what this hard work is all about”

“It depends what type of Asian. If they’re Chinese, they’ll rise to the top. If they’re Indian, they’ll rise to the top. If they’re Pakistani, they won’t”

He went on to say that if the Children were not allowed to leave the school premises then it would create a “sexual volcano”.

The Guardian says on the report:

‘Many black and Asian people still associate the Tories with tough immigration policies and racist views.’

Can’t think why!!

The Conservatives, as is the case with all right-wing parties and groups are inherently racist. It’s part of a nationalist agenda of ‘our country/people are better than yours’. You don’t look/speak/etc like us so piss off!

Say no to the right-wing! NO TO THE CONSERVATIVES AND NO TO UKIP!

UK right; money for troops not the poor

British Philip Hammond MP flagThe ruling Conservative party’s Philip Hammond (the Defence Secretary) has called for a cut in the welfare budget in order to maintain the number of troops.

The toss-pot went on to say that in the upcoming government budget defending the nation must be top priority. We assume that he means attacking other countries must be top priority.

He also said that a fair percentage of the cabinet want to reassess the welfare budget. No surprise, the tories want to cut the welfare state, cut money to help the disabled, the vulnerable and the sick. Got no money to look after yourself? Fuck off then!
The conservatives; the caring and compassionate party…

How about a different approach?

How about we stop attacking other countries, dramatically reduce the military budget, join the EU army to ensure that real and genuine security is not compromised and use the leftover funds to increase the standard of living for the British public.

Bankers bonuses

UK; EU budgetOnce again the UK is out of step with the EU’s progressive stances, this time with bankers bonuses.

The European Union has provisionally agreed to cap bankers bonuses as part of a new financial rules package.

The agreement means that bonuses will be capped at a year’s salary, and provided shareholders agree that can rise to two year’s pay.

This of course has majorly pissed off the UK’s ruling conservative party who have well-known links to banks and the finance sector (over a quarter of Conservative MP’s have had jobs in banking and/or finance).

The provisionally agreed cap is yet to be finalised and the UK will fight the agreement and continue to support bankers multi-million bonuses when European finance ministers meet next week.

David Cameron and the Conservatives will eternally squeeze incomes for the majority, the everyday workers and fight for the wealthy so they can get wealthier at our expense and when things go wrong, we the majority will pay for it.

Don’t give the Conservatives the option, vote them out!

UK; Gay marriage legalised!

Support gay marriage UKBritish MPs voted in favour of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill by 400 to 175, a majority of 225.

Nearly half of the Conservative party voted against the bill and more Conservatives voted ‘No’ than ‘Yes’.

Who voted ‘No’?

Conservative/Tory 136/306
Liberal Democrats 4/57
Labour 22/258
Green 0/1
Others Unknown

The Roman Catholic church also voiced strong opposition to to the bill.

This clearly shows that the conservative party and religion are out of tune with the people of Britain who overwhelmingly support same-sex marriage.

Yes to equality, no to the Conservatives and no to religion!
