Leveson; UK press regulation

The Leveson InquiryIn December I wrote about The Leveson Report.

In regards to the setting up of a regulatory body…

‘The body should consider encouraging the press to be as transparent as possible in relation to sources for its stories, if the information is in the public domain.’ – BBC

Now David Cameron and the tories (Conservatives) are trying to push through an amendment to give the press a veto over who sits on the ‘independent’ panel to oversee compliance with the regulations.

All sides agree that no serving editor or politician can be on the committee but if the press has a veto the keep on vetoing until they get someone who suits their agenda.

Not very independent now is that Dave!

Rupert Murdoch

In perfect timing as a reminder why the Leveson inquiry came to be there have been around 600 new claims of phone hacking against Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World, part of News International.

Further details are set to be released on Monday.

LEVESON INQUIRY: CULTURE, PRACTICE AND ETHICS OF THE PRESS

UK; ditch human rights

British tory flagOnce again the Conservative party, currently in government in the UK are attacking the vulnerable in society.

This time they say they want to repeal the Human Rights laws and the European Court for Human Rights if the get elected at the next General election.

While election for the tories is unlikely (at least out-rightly) this attitude should have alarm bells ringing in the UK electorates ears. Their callous behaviour and complete disregard for the vulnerable in society and the working class, those who are more likely to be victims of human rights abuse.

It begs the question, why would anyone want to do this? When other countries ignore human rights we think of dictatorships and brutal regimes, is that what the UK has coming under a Conservative future?

If you’re not wealthy, the coalition doesn’t care about you, so stop voting for them!

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!

Democracy and Dissent

By George Volkov

Events rely upon each other. Two ideas that oppose each other, sometimes so much as to be the complete enemy of the other.
Throughout history, events of this nature reoccur, so much as to have integrated themselves into our daily life. Take our two leading parties in the UK: Conservatives and Labour. Conservatives and Labour, are widely thought to be the only two parties worth voting for. What if the labour party dissolved? People decide to vote for the party they think represents their views, not wanting another 5 years of cuts and MP pay rises.
So we get, say the Green Party in power, they do a good job, get voted in again, and nobody wants the conservatives back in, because they realise they need no longer vote for the Tories as an alternative party, they vote for who they think is best, not for the lesser evil.
Now the conservatives, previously having labour as their rivals and opposition, wanting no more than their capitulation, are feeling nostalgic. They knew before that if they were voted out, it would be 10 years maximum before the British people got tired of labour, and turned to the only party worth voting for other than labour. Thus, the conservative party relies on labour, as much as it disagrees with it, it needs it to gain power, as seen in 2010, when the British public appeared to forget about thatcher and the 80s, due to their disdain of Brown. Now, Miliband, who would never see power in his lifetime has a 40% approval rate, compared to Cameron’s 28%, because who else would take over from Cameron, if not Labour’s Miliband?
Same with Trotsky and Stalin. Each would have not got to their positions of power without each other. If Stalin had not got funds for the Bolshevik party, they would have collapsed because of the lack of funds. Also Stalin’s defence of Tsaritsyn, an important town, during the civil war, was a massive victory.

But without Trotsky’s organisational skills, the red army would have not been created, or if it had been created, not organised as well. Thus, the whites win the civil war against the Bolsheviks, leading to the Bolshevik party members fleeing or being executed.

Without Marxism-Leninism, what some call Stalinism, there would be no Trotskyism, no revolution betrayed, and some of Trotsky’s best books never wrote.

Lenin entered Russia via the ‘sealed train’, provided by imperial Germany, who were massively opposed to socialism; Germany was a highly nationalistic and militaristic county.
So without imperial Germany, there would be no soviet union, which Germany later despised, Hitler being a big fan of Bolshevism, considering most leading Marxists were Jewish.
These were just a few examples, if you have any more please post them in the comments section, I would appreciate it greatly.

UK’s Conservative Party causes child poverty

By Leon J Williams

Tory Child Poverty

Today for the first time the UK’s right-wing Conservative (Tory) party admitted that it’s policies will cause 200,000 children to fall beneath the poverty line.

In conjunction with the government’s previous cuts and attacks on the poor this will mean that in total an extra million UK children will be in poverty thanks the the coalition’s welfare cuts.

In typical right-wing policy the rich are ensuring they remain wealthy while taking away the very little that the poor have, keeping them downtrodden without any prospects.

Verdict:
Conservative Party = Scum
David Cameron = Scum
Liberal Democrats = Scum
Nick Clegg = Scum

Coalition = Scum
