Corbyn receives international peace prize in Geneva

This is all the more reason for wanting – needing – Jeremy Corbyn as our next Prime Minister!

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a man lead our country, who is genuine in his efforts at peace talks, instead of the succession of war-mongers we’ve had to endure over the last 4 decades?

As Theresa May scrambled frantically to present her Ireland ‘deal‘ as anything less than the utter capitulation it was, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a landmark, statesmanlike speech in Geneva on the great challenges facing us.

What few may know – because the ‘MSM’ have been largely silent on it – is that Corbyn was also in Geneva to receive the international MacBride Peace Prize in recognition of his decades of commitment and service to peace.

The award is presented jointly by the International Peace Bureau (IPB) and the World Democratic Forum. The reasons for the award are described on the event’s website:

Jeremy Corbyn is awarded – for his sustained and powerful political work for disarmament and peace. As an active member, vice-chair and now vice-president of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in the UK he has for many years worked to further the political message…

Conservative MPs accuse citizens of ‘scaremongering stories’ about experiences of Universal Credit.

Once again, Kitty Jones hits the nail on the head with this post:

via Conservative MPs accuse citizens of ‘scaremongering stories’ about experiences of Universal Credit.

I really don’t understand how so very many ordinary working – and non-working – people are being hoodwinked into voting for a party that are idealogically driven, and are all for the Elitist Rich?

This is a party who are driving poverty levels in the UK into the ground – to levels not seen since Victorian times!

The constant eroding of our Human Rights is barely being spoken of.

Our Economy is rapidly sliding down the drain, along with any of the Industries that had made the UK a leader in the past, and which are, once again, desperately needed, if we’re to build our country’s economic future on a firmer footing than the tory Tax Haven ideals.

The gap between the Very Rich, and the (so-called) undeserving Poor, has never been so wide.

Yet, where are the outcries about the gradual attrition of our hard-won Democracy – fought for by our grandparents, and their parents and grandparents before them – and bought on the backs of loss and pain?

All we need now, is for the terrors of the Work House to be brought back once again – something our forebears fought long and hard to abolish in the first place – and then we’ll see the completion of our lives being deliberately regressed back in time – where the Rich Elite have every bit of power, and the poor work for a pittance – and still starve!

Considering the thousands upon thousands of unnecessary deaths, due to the Tory-led DWP’s ideological attritions, which have created an ever-increasing result of Homelessness, which then leads on to Starvation, Chronic Ill Health, Disability, and then death, to so very many citizens of the UK – and all of this taking place under a very silent Mainstream Media (unless they are screaming that their Tory paymasters are being lied about, of course)!

These are things that were first introduced by the Tory-Lite Blairites, thus heralding the decomposition of an effective Opposition Party, and making it even harder for this new Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour Party, to fight against this pernicious, and machiavellian,  disease of tory greed and corruption!

The fact that, since the tories took power, and insisted on introducing their ‘made to fail’ Universal Credit,  it shows that we really have already reached the pits of despondency and despair!

So much for ‘scaremongering’ 😦

Martin Odoni: Lack of Brexit Impact Assessments Means Government Should Go

The fact that the tories have been able to get as far as they have already, with a Brexit that means a dire poverty for the masses, and a dream of invincibility for the rich Tory fatcat – and all with barely a whimper from any opposition parties – says it all to me. Our Nation has become totally subsumed within the tory ideology that work pays (as long as your work is that of an investment banker, of course), and that the road back to health can surely be trodden by the dying and medically unable, the poor, and all those sub-species other that anything born Tory – but only through work that is increasingly poorly paid, and with all Human Rights stripped from them, so they don’t disturb the tory dream machine!

Unfortunately, the Tories have lost any sense of the meaning of justice and decency – as those went out the window as soon as they got into power – and all that’s left in their place is a venal need for more and more power, driven by greed!

Unless Jeremy Corbyn wakes up, and realises he needs to be totally opposing everything the Tories are pushing, we’ll never get rid of them – for a start, he should be calling for the total abolition of Universal Credit!

Tweaking with something that was designed never to work in the first place isn’t the answer, and there are many thousands of new Labour supporters who are waiting for Labour to make the move that will break the tory grip on power, and to the bringing back of the major investment needed, not only in our public services, but also in our manufacturing industries – this is what will create new jobs, not the forcible poverty of a people who are totally deserving of the help they used to get from a Social Service that was the envy of many countries, but is now the worst in Europe.

The tories were really very clever when they renamed everything under that umbrella as Welfare – it’s automatic for anyone hearing that word, to think of an undeserving sub-class of people – which is just the ticket for any born and bred tory, as they push their elitist crap ahead of the helping of a Nation brought low because of their banker friends’ greed!

Of course there is nothing but despair felt by those burdened with poverty and debt – they see no future whatsoever under a tory rule that seems neverending for every day endured!

There were calls last week for David Davis to reveal the 60 or so impact assessments on Brexit, that the government had compiled and was supposed to be suppressing. Davis himself was facing accusations of contempt of parliament for refusing to release them. Now he has revealed that, actually, there aren’t any. Mike over at Vox Political has put up a short piece from Martin Odoni over the Critique Archives, who makes the obvious point: the government is seriously negligent, and should go. The members of every opposition party in parliament should unite and demand their resignation. He makes the point that the referendum was conducted so that Cameron could get the Tory right on board, and that in the 2 1/2 years since it is absolutely disgraceful that the Tories simply haven’t bothered to work out how Brexit would affect Britain.
