We need the state and the state is, or should be, for us

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 15/06/2024 - 6:12am in

It is now the seven year anniversary of the devastating Grenfell Tower fire in North Kensington. Soon after, this powerful piece was written by John Boughton, author of ‘Municipal Dreams’: Privatisation of everything is still somehow seen as advantageous and efficient in the face of all the evidence to the contrary. Nonetheless, it is rarely... Read more

He might have added that he personally was never stupid enough to spend £4bn on unusable PPE or £27bn on test and trace. Now he couldn’t possibly be part of that government could he?... Read more

How is the UK Government Funded? A Primer:

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 12/06/2024 - 7:26am in

This is again from Mike Parr, earlier of this parish… This is about Money, Government, Taxes, Interest Rates’, and the lies that the lying liars keep telling you…. The UK government has three ways in which it can raise money: Borrow by selling government bonds…Tell the Bank of England to create money…Selling assets such as,... Read more

Lying and deceiving Sir

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 12/06/2024 - 4:32am in

Aaron Bastani of Novara Media goes to the heart of this egregious smear from Starmer. How does he think people who were campaigning for the Corbyn 2019 manifesto (such as me – and him!) think this is in any way fair or even logical? I fear Johnson has taught him to dissemble and deceive –... Read more

Brexit has woefully diminished Britain

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 11/06/2024 - 7:44am in

This is a great, informative thread by Daniel Lambert of wine trade fame… He points out that – even in Mexico – absolutely nobody thinks that Brexit is remotely sensible and that it has diminished Britain. I’m sure it has. Britain has completely lost its way under this Tory administration – it is pretty unfathomable... Read more

The ‘unaffordable’ NHS…

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 07/06/2024 - 7:11am in

This is from tax lawyer Dan Neidle: I’m not talking much about the general election tax debate. Because it’s irrelevant. The few £bn being discussed is dwarfed by the actual UK tax increases over the last few years, and the further tax increases we’ll almost certainly see in the future. Perhaps tax increases will be...

The Green & Pyloned Land of East Anglia

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 05/06/2024 - 8:45pm in

Mike Parr (after a seven year gap!) has been kind enough to contribute this piece on the problems of getting windfarm electricity from the coast to inland users, which turns out to be yet another problem that is made much worse by the failure to understand the government’s power of money creation…. If LINO (The... Read more

The public is gradually beginning to beware of Ultra Processed Food…

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 04/06/2024 - 5:48am in

And so they should. This is (for the UK and US at least) a most damning chart from a recent FT piece on Ultra Processed Food: And the FT points out that medical research into ultra-processed food (UPF) has almost tripled since 2020 – so the medics are trying to look after us.. Indeed it... Read more

Growth or bust

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 28/05/2024 - 8:28am in

I’ve just listened to someone suggesting that we are going through crazy times now and we’ve got to learn to do it all ourselves, because government cannot… Why have the state? Why elect governments? Why have government at all? Stokholm syndrome seems to rule… Of course it is not that governments cannot – it is... Read more

Conservative Conscription is the next con

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 27/05/2024 - 9:08pm in

I post this litany of corruption for context: No wonder the Tories now want us to forget their past and concentrate on their future ‘visions’. Whilst enriching themselves during their time in power, they have impoverished the rest of us and driven most of us into debt servitude, and they now want to – oh... Read more
