    Cameron’s EU Race Card

    “The UK believes in an open economy. But we have got to be able to cope with all the pressures that free movement can bring – on our schools, our hospitals and our public services. Right now, the pressures are too great.” Cameron’s letter to Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, dated 10th November 20151. If the EU ’emergency brake’ on in-work benefits had been introduced 4 years ago only 84,000 families would have claimed in-work benefits and very little money would have been saved.2 Additionally, experts do not expect the ‘brake’ to reduce the flow of EU immigrants…

    The EU is a Class Issue

    “It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government.” Thomas Paine Class war may have ended but there is still the politics of class and this includes perceptions of the European Union (EU). Generalisations are always that but there is a distinct likelihood that the middle and working classes will vote very differently over continued membership of the EU. The majority of the middle class see the EU as a wide canvas, and can buy-in to slogans like ‘Britain Stronger in Europe’ (BSE). They accept that the EU is a work-in-progress, albeit a slow one,…

    TTIP – A Treaty made in Hell!!

    “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism, because it is a merger of State and corporate power.” Benito Mussolini  You thought the banking crisis and the recession were bad? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet! TTIP – Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership – is the latest deal the bankers, corporations and governments don’t want you to know about.  But just in case you find out just how toxic it could become, they’ve made sure that voters in the EU and the US will not have any opportunity to vote on it.  It’s happening behind closed doors in Brussels and Washington.

    The real costs of NHS contracting out

    The NHS is being given away! Normally, ‘privatisation’ means that shares are sold by the state-owned organisation to private companies, financial institutions and individuals. But shares are not being sold in the NHS – it is being privatised by contracting out. It’s being given away, the taxpayer is not receiving one penny, and it’s downright theft. Not surprisingly, those benefitting from the taxpayers’ enforced largesse claim that this is not privatisation by the back door. The NHS will still exist although the provision of services will be contracted out to ‘any qualified provider’, which is supposed to be more efficient…

    Austerity – It’s a lie & unnecessary!

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda It’s a political – not an economic – decision…
