Greens On Thatcher’s death…

Green Party of England and WalesCaroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, said:

“As Britain’s first female Prime Minister and a true icon in that respect, it came as a great disappointment that Margaret Thatcher did so little for women – inside or outside Parliament – whilst also pursuing a political agenda which sought to marginalise the poor, undermine the very notion of ‘society’ and attack the fundamental principles of the welfare state.

“Whatever you think of her policies, Margaret Thatcher clearly made a massive and lasting impact on the political landscape, both here and abroad, and was incredibly effective in getting her message across.

“It’s just a tragedy that it was all in the wrong direction.

And fellow Green councillor Ben Duncan said the former Prime Minister had “not exactly changed the country for the better”.

He said: “She set in motion the whole notion of privatisation that had terrible implications for the whole nation.

“As a politician I’m not exactly sad because the legacy of her politics won’t be here in the same way”

‘State of War’ on Korean Peninsula

Korean War“The long-standing situation of the Korean peninsula being neither at peace nor at war is finally over.” – Statement from DPRK

Still analysts are saying that all-out war is very unlikely, which could be true but with daily threats coming from the North and daily antagonisms coming from the South/US it certainly couldn’t be ruled out.

It has been reported that North Korean troops and artillery have moved into combat positions. It seems that both sides are just waiting for the word from their leaders before they start massacring each other.
Leadership and governments as always under Capitalism will sit in their offices with a brandy (or any drink of their choice) and give the order, sending men, women and children to their deaths.
Around 3 million people lost their lives in the last Korean war, Chinese, Koreans, Americans, British and a small assortment of other nationals. The leaders were fine though.

No to war, workers of the world unite and down with leadership!

Workers burn boss to death

By Leon J Williams

The BBC has reported on an incident in the Indian state of Assam.

First, the story

Tea workers in India set fire to the owners home in which the owner ad his wife burnt to death following a dispute between the workers and the owner.

Interesting part

The article states this as fact however when it refers to a previous incident in which the owner fired on a crowd of workers it uses the term ‘allegedly’.
Typical, when workers do something it’s always bad but when a boss or owner does something it’s like ‘well I’m sure he had a good reason for doing that’ like it’s some fucking conspiracy against the boss.
