Tory Cuts KILL – perhaps it’s because they’re Psychologically disturbed?

I agree with you Jayne, that people should vote and something I have been urging people to do for some time. Not voting only leaves the inmates in charge of the asylum and nothing will be changed. And I urge them to vote anything but Conservative or Labour.  Though here in Manchester, with our 100% Labour council, which willingly imposes the Conservatives policies.  I urge people to vote anything but Labour.  As for a democratically elected Government, in reality, with the First Past the Post electoral system, we have never had a truly democratic Government.

The We Own It campaign are not happy with Labour’s lack of support for public services.  It was a Labour Government which started privatising the National Health Service (NHS), through PFIs (Private Finance Initiatives)

We’re asking the Labour party (along with all the other parties) to do just one thing: commit to a Public Services Users Bill in their election manifesto. (1) This would be a small but important step towards public services for people not profit.


Yesterdays news was full of the latest findings from Institute for Fiscal Studies demonstrating  the ConDems Changes to the Tax and Benefits system has cost households £1,127 a year on average, and even the Mail concedes this means “poor families have lost the most as a percentage of their income“; and yet despite this, the Government still maintained “UK income inequality is now lower than when this Government came into office“.

I doubt anyone will be remotely surprised at the Coalition disputing the data, this is another example of how this unelected Government has persistently and systematically Lied to the people.

There been countless claims on social and even occasionally in main stream media about the number of people dying as a result of Welfare Reform, and those of us involved in any of the campaigns to raise awareness, need no persuading this is an absolute truth. The situation where respected organisations produce…

What targets will improve the lives of children across the world?

Featured Image -- 1874

Lets make 2015 a year for Global action for every Child.


2015 will be a year to remember: this coming September, world leaders are set to pass a new global development agenda that will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This agenda will drive action and investment in every country over the next 15 years.

The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aspire to be universal in scope and transformational in nature for both people and planet.

For this to happen, children must be at the heart of the new agenda and have voice in defining and implementing it. As UN Member States move towards the critical stage of negotiating the final iteration of the new framework for sustainable development, UNICEF has released a set of two-page “issue briefs” that articulate essential targets for children and future generations.

These two-pagers are intended to be a tool for Governments and other key decision-makers in the forthcoming negotiations and beyond. Using the watershed…

17 pictures inspired from Paris March that show many can’t be fooled by hypocrisy

THe clowns who flocked to the Paris march forgot a few things, one being all pro-Palestinian marches in France are banned. Free speech? France has long been a racist country and has treated it’s old colonials from North Africa atrociously.

In Gaza, My Gaza!

17 pictures from the Paris March that show the world can’t be fooled by hypocrisy. These pictures show how social media activists reacted to the infamous picture from the Paris March for Freedom of Expression. Ironically, many of these leaders are accused of war crimes and/or human rights violations especially against journalists and freedom of expression.

Both Netanyahu, directly responsible for the murder of thousands of Palestinians including 17 journalists, and Mahmoud Abbas, whose security forces, while protecting Israeli occupation and settlers, continue to arrest journalists and political activists, came under fire.

1)It turned out that the world “leaders” were not leading the masses. Nor were the masses marching behind the leaders. 1) It turned out that the world “leaders” were not leading the masses. Nor were the masses marching behind the leaders.

2)Some activists added their touch to the infamous picture by adding people who should have been there too but could not due to personal circumstances such as death or massacring people. Note: missing from this picture are the Joker, Gargamel, and Bart Simpsons 2) Some activists added their touch to the infamous picture by adding people who should have been there too but could not due to personal circumstances such as death or massacring people.

A favourable post UT bedroom tax decision and boy are councils not going to like this!!

Manchester City Council is one of those councils which have not looked at the individual circumstances before applying the bed-room tax. The 100% Labour controlled council, has always been swift to carry out Conservative Government’s wishes, whilst blaming the Government. If it had carried out its duties correctly, it would not put hundreds of tenants through the trauma.

Seeking justice is counter-productive, US tells terrorised Palestinians

USA and Israel are the pariah states which should be before the International Court of Justice.

You could not make it up.

“The one who needs to fear the International Criminal Court in The Hague is the Palestinian Authority, which has a unity government with Hamas, a terror organization like [the Islamic State group] which commits war crimes.” So says Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

This certifiable crackpot, this bloody butcher who tops the world’s ‘most wanted’ list, was speaking after Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas signed the Rome Statute, at long last joining Palestine to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Membership of the ICC could enable the Palestinians to file charges against Israel for war crimes.

Abbas’s move came after his disapointment when a UN Security Council Resolution calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state and an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza by late 2017 was blocked. Only eight…
