Ken Livingston

That arch Maverick and the totally uneventful Bradford MP ( hot air producers ) should both be dismissed from the labour ( what's left of it ) party. These are people who are doing their best to destroy the party. Throw them both out!

TUC Info

next edition of the TUC’s best-selling guide to health and safety at work is now ready. It is used by reps, officers, employers, professionals in the field and even enforcement officers.
This fifth edition is published at a time when the regulations that underpin workers’ protection are still under government scrutiny. It is no secret that cost-cutting and an obsession with ‘red tape’ lie behind the motives for reducing the impact of some laws, or even repealing others completely.
That is why trade union reps, officers and anyone with a practical interest in health and safety matters should have a copy of the 2016 edition of Hazards at Work. It explains the way unions organise to improve health, safety and welfare, how the law has changed in recent years and gives full details of the key legal provisions and how they are enforced.

EU

Theresa May yesterday questioned whether it is right to allow Albania, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey to join the EU. She argued that they were ‘countries with poor populations and serious problems with organised crime, corruption, and sometimes even terrorism’.

East Enders storylines

Tamwar is running away with Nancy. He gets a job modelling suspenders in Nepal and Nancy becomes a brain surgeon. Martin turns up after leaving Stacey and enrols at the national college for desperate actors only he finds that Emily Bishop is his tutor which means she is not actually in Peru? Wow love this story!

EU

This week, the Government fired some of its biggest guns – a Treasury report and a visit from Barack Obama – to try and blackmail the British people into voting to stay in the EU. We were expecting this to happen, but not this soon.
Downing Street are clearly panicking. They know that the Prime Minister’s renegotiation has not convinced the British public. They are now trying to scare people into voting to stay in the EU by doing down Britain’s economy and our place in the world.

Greek islanders nominated for Nobel

My thoughts are with the islanders and many volunteers who are spending vast amount of effort and time helping Syrian refugees who had no choice other than to leave their war torn country.

An online campaign run by the grassroots Avaaz platform for residents of the Greek islands of the Eastern Aegean to be nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize for their contribution in the refugee crisis has passed the halfway mark to reaching its target of 500,000 signatures.

“The native populations of the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea (and many other external, worldwide, non-profit organizations and diaspora Greeks) have done and are doing anything possible to help the displaced Syrian refugees and make them as comfortable as possible, although they themselves have very little to offer, despite being subjected to a severe economic crisis for many years,” Avaaz says in its campaign announcement. “On remote Greek islands, grandmothers have sung terrified little babies to sleep, while teachers, pensioners and students have spent months offering food, shelter, clothing and comfort to refugees who have risked their lives to flee war and terror.”

The Queen

Many will be surprised to hear that I am in favour of retaining the Monarchy. A few reforms like the abolition of the House of Lords and the dishing out of titles are needed but on the whole I much prefer the country to be represented by the Queen. The alternative is too horrific to even contemplate and would allow hot air career politicians like Blair or the likes of Wiiliam Hague or even Peter Mandelson to stand for the position of President that would be a total nightmare!

East Enders storyline

I am reliably informed by a totally unreliable source that the next story in East Enders is about Tamwar moving to LA and becoming a suspenders model but finds he can only makes it if he diverts to stockings. Can't wait !

Nick Venedi

Seems that there is no end to how stupid the EU ( leaders ) are. The use of the word leader is an absolute abuse of the term. The brain boxes of Brussells who are so obsessed and against migration from Syria have found a Blackadder type of solution. Let Turkey in with 80 million population to stop the flow of immigration from Syria a country with 8 million? First I don't think immigration from that war torn country is a major problem and second the ' move ' if we accept what the EU is worried about will produce the opposite affect? 80 million Turks will have an automatic right to move to EU countries and second those who seek asylum will just walk into Turkey to start with then move to the EU. So why don't the idiots in Brussell simply accept and support Syrian refugees who clearly need help?? Fucking do it idiots!

EU and left

The hypocracy of the left

I held senior elected positions with Britains largest TU for many years and worked with many on the left. They always understood the danger of a large pro boss organisation like the EU and feared the dominance of monopolies. But then suddenly and out of the blue many of these people have decided to do a huge U turn and are now in full support of this nasty slow moving Levithan! I can not understand where the warnings they were giving me for so many years have all been thrown in the bin and how they can possibly support such an unprogressive organisation like the EU!!!

Is the bbc responsible

should we accept that publicly funded organisations like the bbc have a duty to promote PC correct programming or should they ensure that the stories they come up with are entertaining and not range between the ridiculous and the full of shit type? We all like different kind of stuff and I particularly dislike the way bbc producers try to be all things to all people so would prefer them if they stick to a more real story line in East Enders. I am still waiting for them to cover a story of blond Eskimos from south east Greenland who live in Balham and work in pound land!

Sub standard programming on telly

It is of course our right to be treated like mushrooms, live in the dark and be fed by shit, but I think television producers must do more to ensure that the quality of programmes on our telly gets better. Pathetic story lines on programmes like East Enders do nothing to improve the quality of what we watch. And since I have to pay for the privilege of watching BBC I insist that the quality improves. When is Stacey, for example, going to be shown to think that she is the Ayotolah Khomeni? And when will the producers come up with a story that covers the concerns of blond Eskimos living in Streatham? They are failing in their duty of care by ignoring these subjects ( since the have covered everything else..)

Brazil

Brazil is experiencing a turning point for the survival of democracy. Conservative sectors use the judiciary and big media conglomerates to persecute former president Lula and his family with a sordid campaign of lies and accusations without evidence.
The fight is between the party of exclusion, which is headed by neoliberals who want to return to government, and the party of inclusion, which for 13 years has been promoting justice and social inclusion and income distribution in our country.
In order to derail the candidacy of the labor leader, Brazilian media, led by only six families, echo misinformation and enhance massive manipulation and distortion of facts. Nonetheless, they will never erase reality: Lula was the most popular, democratic president of the Republic. He is an example of selflessness, a driving force and a collective symbol of achievement of the working class and the poor.
Because of the international relevance of this ongoing political struggle and consequences of what happens in Brazil for progressive sectors all over the world; we are proposing this international petition and request your support:
IN DEFENSE OF LULA, SYMBOL OF SOCIAL STRUGGLE AND INCLUSION
Since the beginning of resistance against civilian and military dictatorship in the late 1970s and ensuing redemocratization of Brazil, the name of Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva became example of determination, a symbol of social struggle and justice for the working class and especially for the poorest.
Whether in charge of historic strikes that shook the foundations of the military regime or in dealing with harassment and abuse of its police forces, Lula has always shown discernment and serenity to move forward, propelling the best of each and all to build a new time, contributing to the founding of the Workers Party (PT) and CUT-Brasil and in the fight for democratic freedoms.
As years passed, the metal worker leader became president. His two terms in office were considered by all landmarks of economic growth, with an emphasis on employment and income distribution. With rapid social improvements, the Brazilian GDP became the seventh in the world. There was real increase of 53.6% in the minimum wage and more than 15 million new formal jobs were generated, which removed 40 million Brazilians out of extreme poverty.
During his government, more than six million domestic employees - historically marginalized second-class workers in Brazilian society - had their rights recognized to match those of other workers.
With determination, Lula has prioritized Latin American integration and the strengthening of ties with African countries. The aim was for more equitable international relations without despotism or subservience, welcoming refugees with open arms, thus strengthening self-determination of peoples, holding firm the banner of understanding and peaceful coexistence in a world at war.
We therefore denounce this sordid and irresponsible campaign led by conservative groups who use the judiciary and the media to persecute a former Brazilian president and his family. The same old dominant class which more than once supported former dictatorships and all sorts of misgovernment against sovereignty and democracy is now attempting to taint the reputation of a most relevant Brazilian so as to derail his presence in the national political arena and implement a neoliberal backlash, privatizing the State and excluding common people (“commoners”).
In confidence in the exemplary life course of Lula, we raise our voice against attempts of coups d’etat ever again.

It's official and simple. Exercise regularly but make it moderate rather than intensive. Too much is definitely not good for you. You also need to change what part of your body you exercise. For best results run 4 times a week 30 minutes each time unless you don't want to lose exercise. Nick Venedi

EU

Save Our NHS
In an open letter, more than fifty healthcare workers including doctors, nurses and paramedics have called for the UK to Vote Leave to save the NHS. They argue that the NHS has not received the necessary funding and that only if we Vote Leave can we protect the NHS.
Commenting, one of the signatories, Dr Philip Cunnington said: ‘Billions of pounds of UK taxpayers’ money is sent to Brussels every year while the NHS is starved of funding. Let's Vote Leave on June 23rd and take control of our spending, allocating it to more important things such as the NHS'.
The NHS faces a dangerous cocktail of threats, amongst them the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) - a series of trade negotiations taking part in secret between the EU and the US - and rising patient demand. For the NHS to prosper, we must leave the EU. If we Vote Leave and take back control, we can spend our money on our priorities such as the NHS.

Fitness for the weekend

Right. A few simple hints. Know your body and understand how far you can go but as a general rule I do not agree with over doing it when it comes to exercise. A balance approach which involves eating well and correctly with moderate but regular exercise is the right approach.

vote leave

own interests in the EU referendum debate, former Labour Foreign Secretary Lord Owen kicked off Vote Leave’s “Save Our NHS” campaign, the EU’s own border agency highlighted how our membership makes us less safe, and Scottish Vote Leave launched with cross-party and business support.

Government waste taxpayers’ money on EU Propaganda
The Government will go to any lengths to win the referendum and try to keep us in the European Union – even if it means breaking promises they made in Parliament. Number 10’s decision this week to spend £9.3 million of YOUR money on pro-EU propaganda is in defiance of the fact that just a few months ago the Government promised that it would not send out any leaflets supporting either campaign.
These glossy 16-page mailshots are going out at a time of ‘austerity’, wasting nearly £10 million of taxpayers’ money to try and keep us trapped inside a dysfunctional EU. David Cameron has been trying to avoid answering questions all week about how he benefits from his offshore trust, but is willing to spend YOUR money on pro-EU leaflets. After we Vote Leave, we can spend this money on our priorities such as the NHS.
This misuse of public money means that the referendum will not be fought on a level playing field. The IN campaign can spend nearly two and a half times as much we are legally able to. But your response has been overwhelming. In the 24 hours after the Government announced its costly leaflet we received thousands of pounds in donations – and there's still time to donate. The spending caps begin in just a few days' time – so it’s more important than ever to make a donation to our campaign. We cannot thank you enough.

Leave EU

You may have seen this evening’s news. I’m sure you’re as staggered as I am to learn that the Government is going to spend more than £9 million of taxpayers’ money sending out a leaflet to every single home in the UK telling us we should stay in the EU.
They promised they wouldn't do this. Yet they are now proposing to spend more money promoting a 'Remain' vote than even the official Remain campaign will legally be able to.
We know this is a big decision, and that people are still making their minds up. That's why there will be two campaigns to try and convince voters what the best option is: Leave or Remain.
Each campaign will be allowed to raise and spend the same amount to make their case and convince the voters.
But the Government is losing the argument and it seems they don't want a fair fight.
They want to skew the debate, using tired old arguments that have long since been discredited.
And they want to do it with your money.
They are going to spend £9.3 million of YOUR hard-earned cash on these leaflets. We already send £350 million to Brussels every week – why should we hand over even more of our taxes to pay for propaganda?

Remarkable how a moron like Charlie Elfik who was unfortunately a Councillor in the minority group of Tories in Lambeth ( there were just 5 of them ) is now an MP in Kent?

EU

This week saw how the EU weakens our safety and security, the British steel industry suffer due to the control we have handed over to the EU and leading businesspeople and entrepreneurs come out in favour of Vote Leave.

EU membership threatens our national security
Justice Minister Dominic Raab delivered an important speech on Wednesday in which he highlighted how the EU makes us less safe. He stressed that if we stay in the EU, we will be unable to take the steps needed to ensure our security, such as controlling our own borders, deporting dangerous criminals and fully supporting our NATO allies.
His speech followed Vote Leave research which pointed to 50 of the most dangerous EU criminals who came to the UK and committed serious crimes. The EU’s ‘free movement’ rules mean that many criminals can travel from the EU to the UK undetected. This makes the UK less safe and less secure.

Time for change

I am still looking forward to the day when some one takes on the system and challenges the fact that having people with titles contradicts the essence of the Equalities Act. It can not be acceptable that we are told that we are all equal under the law but some are more equal indeed superior to others? And of course the problem with challenging this comes from the fact that anyone who might be interested in doing the challenge would be in line with benefiting from the system that dishes out these ' distinctions' in which case I am not holding my breath!
