Mayday – International Workers Day.

A day the Tories would love to forget. As solidarity has been eroded away over the years, Thatcherism followed by the soul destroying New Labour, the coalition and next?

It is important that wherever possible, people support & join their trade union; and for trade union leaders, it is important they forcibly put forward the collective needs of whom they represent (RIP Bob Crow). The establishment has continually favoured employers rights and the need to protect their profits, citing the demands of the free market as a defence, workers being treated as an expendable commodity.

However it doesn’t have to that way. Carlsberg & John Lewis are shining examples, successful cooperatives whose staff share the ownership of the company. Pride and self respect are invaluable traits that both these companies use to their advantage by not just by non-exploitation but create valuable benefits for their staff.

Capitalism, a monetary based economy is wrong and immoral but there are ways of being fair and still being successful.

People are quick to denounce obvious change but not that which is gradually undermining communities.

As soon as there is a proposed new building / service, whether it a school, a supermarket or a Mosque, the Nimbyist squad are out in force; the traffic, the noise, the reduction in speed limits, there is no need for that in our area. They moan, they complain, especially when services disappear due to the fact that nobody actually used them.

What a load of bollocks.

However when services are gradually ebbed away; rubbish collection, street cleaning, local park maintenance and upkeep, libraries, museums, art galleries, local care services having their funding cut, buildings of historical importance being left to rot; it all resulting in it being left to the volunteer sector stepping in – an essential paid job being replaced by free labour; not a peep.

None of the Nimbyists get on their pedestal (foundations of sand) , perhaps it would mean stop wanking over the computer, trying to give life to their dead negative destructive view, and going out within their own community, enjoying and supporting what it does have to offer not simply trying to create their own Nimbyist Utopia.

I’d rather the Scottish than the rich greedy scum that have made millions while the rest suffer 

So the Tories tactic to be allowed to abuse this country more, is that if Labour win, we will be ruled by Scotland.

At least Scotland have a fairer system, free prescriptions, free education etc. give me Scottish rule anytime over Etonian rich bullies, that are only bothered by the minority.

Immigration or Deficit will eat your soul!

Is it because people think they are clever talking about economics – deficit this, deficit that – don’t people realise that since 1900’s EVERY country has always had a deficit. In a monetary based capitalist economy as soon as one pound is created by a treasury, they want that pound back with interest lets say £1.10. If there is only £1 in existence you can only pay back £1, so you borrow more to pay the interest.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PAY BACK A DEFICIT AS ALL ECONOMIES STARTED IN DEBT.

What do people think will happen, are bailiffs going to come and take Kent? Fuck all will happen apart from the value of the pound which is relevant for importing exporting.

What has fucked this county is not the deficit but the fact that we rely on imports. Most industry in this country was destroyed by greedy cunts who only saw the short tern desire to have more 0’s on their bank statement then worry about the future.

This election campaign is being based on aspects of society that are not black and white; immigration and the deficit are not simple issues and impossible to put into soundbites. If there was no immigration into the country do people think THEIR life would be better; if there was NO deficit will YOIR life get better?

No – there will just be more reasons put forward to why life hasn’t got better; the key is using policies that will never be easily resolved the dance continues.

Until our whole economic and democratic precess is drastically altered, there will be little change for the working class.

The first election in history lost by a mug……

No not Ed Milliband, but a ceramic one. How could they have got this so wrong?

I just bought 2 Tea Towels with pictures of old election posters from the 50’s, when Britain had a party that represented the working class and Trade Unionists, a million miles away from the rag tag and bobtail party that it is now.

It comes to something when complex issues are condensed to soundbite phrases that have jingoistic racist undertones.

Government decided by quality of merchandise.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times and then there was the pool in heaven!

When I first moved to London in 1994, I volunteered working a disabled person in their own home. As part of the agreement I was also given a place to stay with other volunteers. Many people came and went through our house in St Clare’s Road, most forgettable but some not so.

It’s strange how things turn out, Lillian Pute, the lass that pushed me in the pool at Heaven, is just living up the road despite us both moving away from the place we became friends 20 years ago.

Our experiences make us what we are today, including all the people that have crossed our path to the present; our paths have crossed again and it will be interesting to see what has happened between the two points.

Mansion Tax and the Bogeyman designed to do the same thing.

The Bogeyman is a common allusion to a mythical creature in many cultures used by adults or older children to frighten bad children into good behaviour.

bm

The mansion tax is a way of telling people that they need to redistribute their wealth as they have to much; either through luck or greed, if you own a £2 million house you can afford it – there are people who don’t have anywhere to live.

They are both ways of telling those who know no better that there practices should change. The rich should be careful when they close there eyes as the Bogeyman WILL get them. Right is right because it is right not because Politicians/law/religion/ parents/school/social media/friends* say it is!

* apply whatever

Cheryl is quaking as we speak.
In the desolate depths of a perilous place
the bogeyman lurks, with a snarl on his face.
Never dare, never dare to approach his dark lair
for he’s waiting . . . just waiting . . . to get you.
He skulks in the shadows, relentless and wild
in his search for a tender, delectable child.
With his steely sharp claws and his slavering jaws
oh he’s waiting . . . just waiting . . . to get you.
Many have entered his dreary domain
but not even one has been heard from again.
They no doubt made a feast for the butchering beast
and he’s waiting . . . just waiting . . . to get you.
In that sulphurous, sunless and sinister place
he’ll crumple your bones in his bogey embrace.
Never never go near if you hold your life dear,
for oh! . . . what he’ll do . . . when he gets you!

GEORGE OSBORNE YOU FUCKIN’ LIAR – [ALT TITLE]

Inequality has never been so low, the rich are paying more than their fare share, reducing student fees would be unfair – living standards are generally increased.

Am I living in a different country?

If the Tories get in again this country is fucked for the working class, with no future for the young unless your parents are rich.

It’s no wonder my dark friend has appeared again, clouding my thoughts, hopes and dreams.
