  • Walthamstow Hustings

    Hello Everyone, Radical Soapbox, otherwise known as Michael Gold, is  the Green Party candidate for Walthamstow in East London for the 2015 General Election and this is the clip of my view of the lamentable state of democracy in the UK in 2015. This was made at the recent joint  hustings of the Waltham Forest Trades Council and Walthamstow Village. If you want to see more of the hustings these can be found at http://bambuser.com/v/5453511 Hope you will vote Green but if not please make sure you vote. Our ancestors fought for the right to vote so don’t let them down. Michael Gold…

  • Collecting Tax is about Political Will!

    Politicians of all parties, from all countries, will tell you that there needs to be international agreement to deal with tax avoidance, tax evasion and tax havens. Yet there are more tax havens under UK jurisdiction than any other national jurisdiction, and we could start by putting our own house in order! However, this doesn’t need to begin with tax havens, but could begin with tax relief on interest paid, a system currently being abused by British, multinational and trans-national companies. Interest paid by a company on loans is tax deductible – this is a hangover from the introduction of…

    The EU and 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   The Common Market, formed in 1957, originally consisted of 6 member states –- Germany, France, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg. The basis of the Common Market was the free movement of capital, goods and labour between the member states – the resulting free trade would increase the wealth of all its member states. However, economics is not an exact science – maybe not even a science at all – and theory doesn’t always translate into practice. The basis for increasing…

  • Neo-Liberalism – Invisible Fascism?

    “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism, because it is a mergerof State and corporate power.” Benito Mussolini The UK economy today has some startling similarities to the economy of Nazi Germany and privatisation is at the heart of both. The Spanish economist Germà Bel1 stated that the word – which is synonymous with neo-liberalism and Thatcher – has its origins in the German word reprivatisierung (denationalisation) and the term was first used in English by the Berlin correspondent of the Economist in 19361 to describe how the Nazi economy worked. The overriding image of fascism is the Nazi jackboot…

    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…
