A word for Dianne Abbott

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 19/10/2021 - 8:06am in

We’ve just had an entire day of MP’s and indeed, journalists talking about the scourge of online abuse towards politicians. Yet there’s barely been a mention of the politician who receives the most online abuse (it seems – by an absolute country mile), Dianne Abbott. And a similar quantity of mainstream orthodox press abuse as... Read more

You can’t learn from history if you don’t know what it was

This short video gives information on the legal action that now has the necessary permission to bring a case to try to outlaw messaging secrecy within government. The case is a joint effort between All the Citizens, which is an organisation campaigning for more transparency and Foxglove Legal, which campaigns to hold the tech giants... Read more

The purpose of the state

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 08/10/2021 - 9:57am in

It seems to me that this is more and more of a problem as our current government appears to be of the opinion that in fact the state has little, or even, no purpose. In spite of the fact that they are in charge of it. Clearly the Johnson government like being in charge because... Read more

Make lying in the House of Commons a criminal offence

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 03/08/2021 - 5:00am in

For anyone who hasn’t seen this petition, personally, I suggest that this is well worth signing . Why on earth directly lying to the House of Commons should not be made a criminal offence needs some considerable explaining (not least by the speaker)…. Here is the link to sign the Parliamentary petition.... Read more

Devolving money creation

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 27/07/2021 - 9:18pm in

There is an interesting programme from Renegade Inc (27 minutes) with the South African, Brett Scott who is ‘an author and financial activist’. I suggest that he has various insights: First that the cashless society is definitely not for the benefit of individuals but rather for corporations and banks. Second the ‘war on cash’ is...

Dawn Butler on being expelled:

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 24/07/2021 - 7:35am in

I have to say Butler’s expulsion is decidedly surreal. It is an indictment of our democracy that she was actually expelled for telling the truth. Perhaps Keir Starmer could organise his party so that every Labour member called on to speak called Johnson a liar. If every one of their speaking members were expelled, hopefully... Read more

The real question is…

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 21/07/2021 - 7:37pm in

…who is the “we” continually mentioned below? Even Kuenssberg seems surprised, presumably at Cummings’ directness. (With apologies for the four letter word in the link): The most obvious conclusion is that “we” was the Vote Leave ‘party’ headed up by Matthew Elliott, previously of the Institute of Economic Affairs and a founder of the sham...
