More smoke and mirrors from the halls of Parliament … Welfare benefits are now termed “addictive” … the new rationale for quietly dismantling NZ’s welfare state

July 20, 2016

Rangitikei Enviromental Health Watch

The latest spin from the powers that be, all about seeking work & not being addicted to welfare. Indeed welfare benefits carry a serious health warning reports the NZ Herald!

Doctors have been told that putting patients on welfare is akin to putting them on “an addictive debilitating drug … not dissimilar to smoking” (NZ Herald 16/7/2016)

What planet  are these guys are living on!? A corporation parading as a government that fails to concede we have a homelessness crisis also wants to blame unemployed for not working when basically there are no jobs (with nary a mention of course of the tax dodging multi national corporations)! They will cite figures about unemployment being down but the figures proffered are dodgy at the very least.

Classic case of smoke and mirrors basically where the victim is blamed for the crime. Shifting the focus off the facts … high unemployment (remember…

More hate crime increased, What have our nation become since post brexit UK

July 8, 2016

Here some hard hitting facts that people have to face up to See Youtube:

It’s roughly 41 years ago that our nation vote for the Single market then history change in UK in the year 2016 our nation voted to leave EU courtesy of Conservative Party who caved in to a one man party aka UKIP with the help of their sidekicks Boris Johnson, Michael Glove Douglas Carswell and it’s highly noticeable that Boris Johnson pulled out of a leadership challenge at the last minute. I can only surmise that Boris Johnson has lots of questions to answer for sexing up the Leave Campaign.

For the full list of Member of Parliament who supported Leave and Remain in political party order:

Have the so called rebels Labour fallen on their sword

July 4, 2016

Here is a letter from our leader of Labour party:

Dear Gordon,

United we stand, divided we fall is one of the oldest and truest slogans of the Labour movement.

After last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is split.

The Government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.

Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the Government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the Government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes.

To do that we need to stand together. Since I was elected leader of our party nine months ago, we have repeatedly defeated the Government over its…

Post In / Out Referendum

July 1, 2016

Well folks it’s no great surprise to all in my last blog post I mentioned the positives of what our EU funding has contributed  in the city of Birmingham in the West Midlands Region and I support the Remain camp.

Post in /out referendum what has transpired racism and fascism(intellectually challenged) has reared its ugly head in the most dangerous way by using selective targeting of Muslims and EU citizens who have helped to build our nation. Some will argue that it had began with the the death of Jo Cox when it was allegedly a member of the far right stabbed and shot a member of parliament which may or may not be true but for the moment I will wait for the court hearing to take place before commenting further out of respect for Mr. Brian and his two young children.jmfktgkh

Why is the war in eastern Ukraine still going on?

Ukraine solidarity campaign солідарність України кампанія

We republish here the presentation of the Ukrainian socialist Marko Bojcun to the conference The Politics of Plunder East and West: what is to be done? held at the London School of Economic

In February 2014, Russian forces seized Crimea and then began supporting the separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine. This intervention transformed the conflict between the Maidan and Viktor Yanukovych’s regime into an international one, and brought Ukraine and Russia into a state of war.

The ongoing crisis clearly has many complex causes that need to be tackled if it is to be overcome. But among the most important causes at the international level has been the contest between two grand projects of regional integration for the labour, natural resources and markets of Ukraine.

These are the European Union, on the one side, and the Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union on the other. Both of them serve as engines of capital…

The reason why Jeremy Corbyn should be allowed to succeed

Let’s get organised

June 28, 2016

Wee Ginger Dug

Does anyone have any idea yet of what’s going to happen to the country over the coming weeks, even the coming days? Because the British government and the official opposition sure as hell don’t. They’re more concerned about their own parties and their own careers than they are about Britain’s impending flouncing off from the EU, Scotland becoming independent, the Northern Irish peace process being sacrificed on the altar of Tory selfishness, or an economy that’s as threatened with extinction as the rhinoceros. It’s easier for them that way. When you’re facing with a catastrophe of unthinkable proportions, it’s a lot easier to argue about the colour of the wallpaper in the Cabinet meeting room than to try and wrap your wee heid around the enormity of the flustercluck that you’re responsible for.

Vote Leave wiped out the hopes of a generation, wiped out the United Kingdom as a union…

Crimea – The Way Home (excerpt)

June 23, 2016

Against the Grain


The Ukrainian armed coup was organized from Washington, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated in an interview for a new documentary aired Sunday. The Americans tried to hide behind the Europeans, but Moscow saw through the trick, he added.

“The trick of the situation was that outwardly the [Ukrainian] opposition was supported mostly by the Europeans. But we knew for sure that the real masterminds were our American friends,”Putin said in a documentary, ‘Crimea – The Way Home,’ aired by Rossiya 1 news channel.

“They helped training the nationalists, their armed groups, in Western Ukraine, in Poland and to some extent in Lithuania,” he added. “They facilitated the armed coup.”

The West spared no effort to prevent Crimea’s reunification with Russia, “by any means, in any format and under any scheme,” he noted.

He also accused the beneficiaries of the coup of planning an assassination of then-President Viktor Yanukovich. Russia was…
