Left Books

Left books are now stocking The Miranda Revolution. I am very pleased about this because I have a long association with Left Books (dating back to 1968)

The right to die could be the only right we have left!

As the politicians are hell-bent on destroying human rights isn't it nice to know they have our best interests at heart. A private member's bill will go before the Commons in September which will give us "the right to die."

I appreciate that the courts may well deal leniently with someone who assists a terminally ill person to die. If however it is decided that killing disabled people is no longer murder it really will prove that we are "children of a lesser God."

And why is the media narrative all about people who want to assist suicide and never about disabled people who want to live?

Poverty-stricken monarch needs cash

What is a nurse worth? What is a teacher worth? A doctor? A fireman?

One can bet it's not 40,000,000 pounds a year. That is what the taxpayer is paying out in these hard times for one royal parasite, a Mrs Windsor who gives her address as Buckingham Palace.

While public servants have had little or nothing in the way of pay rises, Queenie has had a wopping 29 percent increase in three years. It seems one cannot manage on a mere 31,000,000 pounds.

Still, not to worry. It is reported (in the i newspaper today) that Cameron and Osborne are going to crack down on all this extravagance. Hell is due to freeze over in the same week.

Human Rights "in context"

The government denies any abolition of human rights. They will just give them a context. The Government's "context" for human rights is that of the old National Front, "put Britain first". The NF had many admirers of Adolf Hitler who, you may remember, had his own context for human rights too. The disgusting xenophobia of UKIP is pushing the Tories to the right. They did not need much pushing.

"Britain First" is a neo-Nazi group which campaigns against the human rights act, against mosques and against migrants. Interesting bedfellows, Mr Cameron.

The rich have all the rights they want or need. Under Gove, the concept of "universal human rights" will get a kicking. And anyone who literally gets a kicking from British forces overseas will lose the right to have their day in court.

For Cameron, human rights are a nuisance. They are an example of the EU interfering in the right of the Conservatives to do whatever they want. For many people that is the only use the EU has: once in a while it stays the hand of the Conservatives. Now the Bullingdon bullies can give you a good old fashioned clip round the ear without anyone interfering.

There is an article in The Independent about this.

Many people have speculated that the Tories' desire to get rid of human rights shows exactly how inhuman this government is going to be.

The Daily Mirror is suggesting a number of ways to oppose the Tories. The most extraordinary is the suggestion that you "join a political party" and their list of parties included UKIP and the DUP for crying out loud! It does not include TUSC.

Other suggestions include joining a trade union which is more sensible than any other. We need strong unions whichever shower is in power.

How Labour betrays the working class

How the working class has been disenfranchised by the Labour Party. This is most clearly indicated by the fact working class voters are forced to vote for the Greens, a middle class protest party which opposes austerity, Trident and privatisation. Labour once purported to support public ownership and peace.
Russell Brand's anti-establishment phase was short-lived. Does he believe Labour austerity will be cuddly and nice? Or a Labour nuclear war for that matter? Or does he think Labour will expropriate the 1 percent?
Thank God for TUSC!
And the Mirror exposed a UKipper with a desire to shoot Asians between the eyes. Show us your nasty Nazis Nigel!

Tactical Voting - look where that got us!

"If you vote for us, it will get the Tories out." That was the promise of the Liberal Democrats where they had a chance of unseating the Tory incumbent. The result was the despicable ConDem government which launched a one-sided war against the poor.


"Labour is the lesser evil" was something people might have believed until Labour refused to fight the Poll Tax. The invasion of Iraq put the tin hat on that phoney argument. Is Labour civilian bombing the lesser evil for the civilians? When Labour bombed hospitals, women and children did it give the Iraqis a warm glow? And today Labour want to keep Trident - a weapon for nuclear war. Would a Labour nuclear war be all warm and cuddly?

Vote your conscience

Racism is the first refuge of a scoundrel.


On 6 April a change was made in the renewal of Discretionary Leave to Remain. Until 5th April all applicants for renewal had to fill a form with about 15 pages in it, most of the pages were in fact redundant if the person had committed no offences over the 2½ or 3 years since they had been granted DLR. There was no fee - only the postage cost.

The change means that applicants have to fill in a 32-page form and also have to pay £649 per individual, including dependant infants, plus a further £600 per person for a brand new "Immigration Health Surcharge". There is also charge of £40 per person for their "Biometric Residence Permit", unless they have one already. But most people don't have one because it was introduced more recently than 3 years ago.


This means that a family of three, for example will be paying £4,000. Where are they supposed to find that kind of money? MPs sit on massive expense accounts. Migrants do not.

 

The biometric Residence Permit identifies the person as a "migrant". It is the equivalent of the Yellow Star which Jews had to wear in Nazi Germany.

The Labour Traitors are remarkably quiet on this issue.
Your parliamentary candidates might be completely useless. The Labour Traitors are remarkably quiet on this issue.

If so I sympathise. You could however write to them so they cannot claim “none of my constituents is concerned about this issue”

World Book Night

The event at Worthing Library was packed out. The speaker was Juliet West. She is the author of Before the Fall. A former journalist, she was inspired to write the novel by an old story which was brought to light when she was working for the Daily Mail. The story was about a love triangle in the First World War and the fact that the information came in Coroners' records will tell you the tale is not a laugh a minute.

For me the most interesting exchange was the final question from the audience, "How do you know something you have written is good?"
Juliet West's response was to say that if the writing is flowing really well it will probably need extensive re-writing. She went on to say that she has come to enjoy rewriting because "at least then you have something to work on."
