Sitting London ducks

2019-election-results-pic_editedJust reading up on ‘what the Tory election win means for your money‘ and find it has little to do with the practicalities of current financial realities.

There are these red specks in seas of blue. London is like an out-landish Labour bastion amidst the blue rural regions.

It seems to be the land- and property owners elections. Yet the young people, who want to get a fair outlook on life, voted Labour, those people who cannot count on their land-ownership and have to look at University fees and interest to be paid on those.

2019-cartogram_editedIt doesn’t even bring much relief to think that the Living- or Minimum wage will rise and get allocated to younger people because the rents are too high and the housing costs and also commuting costs swallow up all earnings, making people reliant on food banks.

I personaly shouldn’t really complain, my pension is set to rise and I get free travel in London.

This election win, will mean little change to our current infrastructure. The same old class tensions will exist and probably be intensified through problems created in Scotland – who want to strive for Scottish independence and Northers Ireland, which is predicted to become part of the Irish nation within the next few decades.

Perhaps that is the reason why the visit of Boris Johnson to her Majesty the Queen took so long because is there really any way to explain to the Royals that the age of discontent has really only begun, rather than healed off?

Obviously – in terms of Brexit – the Brexitiers have won for England and Wales. Perhaps that will shape the future of the United Kingdom, in that it divides the nation and split off Scotland and Ireland from the Union.

Boris Johnson’s bariton voice can of course soothe emotional alarms instantly but rationally and analytically looking at this mess will simple not heal anything.

Those who are fobbed off by Boris Johnson’s calming effect really miss out on the reality of the situation.

Yes, the election results will calm foreign investors, will ensure that business knows how to prepare for the next few years but very little is resolved in terms of infrastructure and the one-nation agenda.

 

2019 general election

On reflection it was very risky of the Liberals to choose Jo Swinson as leader when her seat East Dunburtonshire is located in Scotland, a home nation, with gains for the SNP. I reckon she would have been much more likely to win a seat in an English contituency.

SNP gained 48 seats compared to the 35 in 2017.

The overall voting pattern, giving the Conservatives a clear 47 seat majority, was probably the voice of the people trying to end the uncertainty and make it easier for today’s business to invest and to make some certainty for jobs clear.

For the long term, I still think that the Labour Manifesto was better suited. In a climate emergency business cannot make good decisions other than those that lead to monetary rewards for individual investors. I don’t think that climate change will be profitable for anyone.

Yet the world cannot imagine change and business cannot change.

It will be interesting to see what happens to those arch Labour supporters up in North England who voted Conservative.

 

 

The same old

When I had these legal proceedings going on in a court of law against various Labour Party members, the Guido Fawkes website was used by a lot of people to communicate on a foul and abusive basis.

Now again, the same principle has come into play again in that Guido Fawkes has become the communications hub to try and ridicule the Labour Party because some conversation was published that Jonathan Ashworth made to someone else, which was then published by Paul Staines.

I am frankly very surprised that the BBC even bothers to invite Paul Staines to panel discussions of sorts and asks for that man’s opinion. The sensationalism associated with Guido Fawkes is more than embarrassing.

Quite remarkable that Labour members continuously need to seek reassurance via the right-wing communications networks. But I did at the time establish that the Guido Fawkes website was run via a German based Internet server.

Don’t vote Tory

Boris Johnson yet again hints at further tax cuts. Tax cuts mean cuts in services. Tax cuts mean subsidising business on the expense of the poor working people.

The different principle of Tory v. Labour is simply that Labour would nationalise key industries and services. The Tories would privatise everything.

Privatisation is people running a business that has to make a profit. The more people run our services the more profit they need to make to create a living from it. The more profit has to be made, the more expensive anything becomes.

To make a profit, the business pays as little wage as possible to its employees. Or to say it in better words, the business employs as few people as possible. This then forces those not in work to create their own business to do something.

We see the creation of the working poor, people who got jobs but can’t afford to buy food. People get enslave to work for those who create profits for themselves, from which they pay less taxes to provide services for those who need them.

Overall a government collects taxes to run services for the nation. The less taxes they collect, the less services they provide.

Of course those who make a lot of money from their companies, they couldn’t care less about services provided from the state. They simply buy their own services. Hence we see private health care, private schools, private homes. etc.

The poor and ever increasing poorer masses have to do with the small amount of services the state provides and share the spills of the rich, that they can get hold of. Because Tories reduce taxes, the services the poor masses get, become worst and worst.

On the other hand if Labour wins, we get nationalisation of services and utilities and that will make everything cheaper for all of us. Because if now 100 companies run a service, 100 companies will need to make a profit; we all have to pay for those profits.

But if a state runs the services, we just need to pay as much as it costs to run that service, the material and the wages of those running it, which is of course less than if private businesses run it.

 

 

Right-wing extremism

the development of which is a real danger for Britain today. The Big Society is the breeding ground for extremists of all sorts.

We cannot categorise a person as left- or right-wing whether they are white or not, we have to categorise them by religion and/or traditional behaviour towards their religious doctrine.

We need to re-evaluate the systemic fascist bevaviour that may or may not be religious because the orientation towards a god-like persona, whether living or dead is the main attraction in those movements. Domestic abuse is an indicator of wide-spread day-to-day facism.

Boaz’s book of ‘The politics of Freedom’ are a symphony’ to praise venture Capitalism and with it comes the religion of exploitation of the moment to help the venture individual become rich and successful.

With the Big Society, the Conservatives developed the red herring of Brexit, a concept that runs right through their tenure of government. Whenever they needed something to talk about, it was/is Brexit.

Newsnight’s data – obtained under the Freedom of Information Act – revealed there were 322,250 RUI cases between April 2017 to October this year. Of these, 93,098 related to violence against a person and sexual offences cases.

All pressing current issues were ignored. Right-wing extremists are not necessarily white these days, they can come from all backgrounds and Usman Khan, the recent London Bridge terrorist is the dead proof of it. He got a ‘get out of jail’ card without proper scrutiny but it would have been apparent to specialists that he is definately a terrorist risk. Yet there was no money available to properly assess or monitor him as the government spent millions on Brexit preparations instead, putting all our security at risk.

_rui_offences-ncIn fact 93.000 suspectd violent criminals and sex offenders – were released since 2017 into society without restrictions. The government changed the rules on pre-charge bail in 2017. People suspected of offences including rape and murder have been among those “Released Under Investigation” (RUI). Such persons could have an immense effect on society because they may have a different attitude towards democracy and freedom of the individual among other things.

This means suspected offenders who could be part of a certain ideology could be released without jail back into society and severely affect the fabric of society.

Politics is evolving very fast and we cannot keep getting stuck to old and no longer reliable concepts. Multi-nationalism and international movement puts a stop to that.

Whenever I write to a government department, the answer that the minister is just changing prevents a meaningful dialogue. Many voluntary organisations are primarily staffed with those who can afford to spend the time and energy to do those roles. That in itself indicates, the persons are well off and from a middle to upper class background. There are a few organisations who meet through need like those around Grenfell Tower and victims of crime of some sort, who meet whenever they can.

The ability to organise these days is severely restricted through changing working patterns. The change in working patterns was orchestrated on purpose so the so-called working classes could no longer meet and organise themselves on a regular basis.

Only those who are established and well off can find the resources to dedicate themselves to the Big Society, they are also the least likely wanting to rebell.

Wealth concentration is spiralling towards a smaller elite whilst the masses are kept in some poverty and ever bigger dependance on the charity donations that fewer people are able to give.

The Labour policies currently pushed by the Labour Party are there to counter this development and it is necessary to re-establish some level of playing field for society to flourish.

 

Labour is learning fast on anti-semitism claims

Safia Ali, former Labour candidate for Falkirk has been removed immediately, to satisfy concerns over Labour’s anti-semitims. So Labour is learning fast.

Tories spreading rumours

How Andrew Neil ran that Corbyn interview was more than manipulative, but now that rumour that the Conservatives are due to get a 68-seat majority and how the media further now influences voters to report that Domic Cummings is reported worried about the Lib Dems is clearly aimed at getting voters to switch to Lib Dems because the Tories know that the Lib Dems are the only party likely to support them.

How a YouGov poll works already determins that the poor and those working people who have not gotten much time are very unlikely to even take part in them.

YouGov polls are conducted via e-mail request from YouGov to registered voters, they are urged to do a survey. It takes internet access, a device capable of going onto the internet for the purpose of the survey and then it takes around 15 minutes to do the survey.

A lot of people don’t even have internet access or at limited times and then a lot of working people hardly have time to cope with their daily grind rather than do YouGov polls.

Those YouGov polls only attract a certain type of people who have the equipment and time to take part, that is hardly the typical Labour voter who enmass probably is more engaged in community activities. So the poll is not representative. It just shows that the participants are mainly Conservative voters or right-wing.

Unfortunately because Labour announced that they will tax the online providers more, they will find now that every Internet company will be as unfriendly as possible towards Labour and not support them and report favourably for the Conservatives.

Yet if you look at the Labour policies, they are extremely friendly towards the community and even though Labour is accused of being anti-semitic, nobody can argue against the fact that the many Jewish children who grow up in Britain will benefit immensely from the Free University policy that Labour has announced.

self-indulgent Conservatives

Reuters reports that the Conservative Party raised 26 x more donations than Labour. What do you expect, the rich splash the cash and the poor don’t have a lot.

If the Conservative Party would donate that money to the poor and homeless instead of using it to lie to us, they would gain some respect but like it is, nobody is believing the lies, regardless how nicely they dress it up.

Conservatives raised £5.7 Million and Labour raised £218.500. Of course the rich pay a lot of money to get the Conservatives back into government. I don’t think they care who the prime minister is, they are just interested in keeping those same policies.

Since this is a manifesto for the poor of course the poor can’t donate as much. So I don’t care.

Looking at the Manifesto Labour shouldn’t need much money to convince pensioners that they get care for free and they do not need to convince students who will get university for free. Families want good quality council housing that they can rent on a permanent basis. So who needs a lot of convincing?

The warm-up act

Jeremy Corbyn certainly doesn’t lack confidence when he described Boris Johnson as his warm-up act at today’s CBI speech.

Overall Jeremy Corbyn sounded more coherent and articulate and knowing a clear plan of what he wanted to achieve.

Boris Johnson brought on a lot of stammering and ahs but was honest enough to announce that the Conservervatives no longer want to cut Corporation tax.

So business is between a rock and a hard place but the Labour plan seems overall more business friendly because the free broadband plan and regulation of bus transport across the country will enable business and productivity across the country.

Obviously the free education for all will raise skill levels and participation in educational opportunities, a clear enhancement for productivity and skills development.

Overall the Labour strategy is more business friendly despite wanting to nationalise a few services because it enables business better rather than a conservative strategy, which allows only a few, very rich and large businesses to thrive on the expense of smaller outlets.

 

Rushanara a proud remainer

Just got the first Labour leaflet through my door and Rushanara Ali states she is a proud remainer.

So much for all those on TV debates who call Labour pro leave and waiting to do the Brexit. Either Rushanara has an individual deal as local and established MP or Labour has a general policy of remain.

I am happy about this because that clears the air with those who will argue for pro-remain and keep on saying Labour is for Leave. Rushanara also argues for a People’s vote on the issue, which is fair.

The last referendum was years ago and so wishy-washy, it was unable to be executed. This time round people should get acceptable optionso n Brexit with the referendum.

I will be voting Labour this time because years of austerity have left Britain starving of investment. Rushanara is always communicating about issues, I contact her with.

Our technology is behind Japan, who as a similar Island nation are fully covered with broadband.

Fibre broadband everywhere will attract investment and also provide important security for all parts of Britain. I also hope that Labour will introduce free University education for students of British students in Britain.

I don’t think that private broadband firms have the money to put on a full network of cabelling throughout Britain because they would need the money for the work, which remote people and villages simply could not afford.

The lack of communications facility through a lack of broadband makes our communities vulnerable to abuse by criminals, who have advanced technological methods to their advantage. Our residents and businesses need to be able to communicate with law enforcement and potential customers for business ventures.

Free university education should save a lot of money in administration fees for the scheme that is currently in place. Students simply do not constantly want those depressing letters, telling them how much they own and how much the debt has increased with added interest. Perhaps one could ask for a contribution to university education once a student has graduated and gotten established with a very well paid post without sending constant letters reminding them. Perhaps one could attach a clause waving any pay back of the degree will be benefitting the UK.

Many other countries have nationalised utilities, which the Tories have all privatised with detrimental effect on services. Tories are crazy about privatisation and put the principle before effect. Any policy is only as good as the service it provides.
