Cruzing for a Bruising

So now Ted Cruz appears to be the Republican Party’s best chance to save itself from Donald Trump. Cruz is GOP’s great savior and the reason may well be better devil you know rather than the one you do not. The Republican Party’s establishment-led Stop Trump wing is now spending millions on TV ads in a desperate 11th-hour effort to block Trump from winning the next big states to vote for a GOP nominee: Michigan, Florida, Ohio, Illinois and North Carolina. But putting Cruz at the top of their…

Ignoring International Law

Proposals to send back refugees en masse from the European Union to Turkey would contravene their right to protection under European and international law, agencies and rights groups say. Europe has not even fulfilled its agreement last September to relocate 66,000 refugees from Greece, redistributing only 600 to date within the 28-nation bloc. "The collective expulsion of foreigners is prohibited under the European Convention of Human Rights," Vincent Cochetel, UNHCR's Europe regional…

A nightmare for workers

The number of workers on a zero-hours contract for their main job stood at 801,000 in late 2015, up by 104,000 from a year earlier, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has said. That meant 2.5% of the employed UK workforce was on such a contract. ONS statistician Nick Palmer said "There's also nothing to suggest this form of employment is in decline." 1.7 million contracts that did not guarantee a minimum number of hours in November, meaning that many workers had more than one…

Isn't Capitalism Wonderful

A while back, many economists thought that BRIC (an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, and China) would soon be the leading and most prosperous capitalist states. However, under capitalism prosperity is fleeting, especially for the workers, and, as far as Brazil is concerned, there is already trouble in paradise. It's economy lost one million jobs last year; police clash with students on the streets of Sao Paulo over school closings; the president, Dilma Rousseff is facing impeachment…

Don't Fence Men In

Countries are becoming increasingly walled in. At the end of WWII, the number of borders blocked by fences and walls could be counted on one hand. Today, sixty-five borders are sealed off. Republican candidate in the US, Donald Trump has endorsed completing a fence between his country and Mexico, a distance of 3,200 kilometres. Many European countries are erecting razor wire to keep migrants fleeing war, oppression, and poverty out. In capitalism, this could be a good thing as the shares in…

A Movement for the Many

"The comfort of the rich depends upon an abundant supply of the poor" - Voltaire Why should workers, who produce all the wealth in the world be denied the right to go where they please to engage in economic activity, or be restricted in their movements, while the parasite capitalist class can export their capital or exploit workers in wealth making opportunities for their self-enrichment, anywhere they damn well please without let or hindrance? Why should workers on benefits (reserve army of…

Fortress Europe

In exchange for agreeing to turn back refugees from entering Europe, Turkey will be offered visa liberalisation for 75 million Turks by 1 June, as well as restarting Turkey’s long-stalled EU accession talks. Former Liberal Democrat leader Lord Ashdown said the Prime Minister’s support of a Nato mission in the Aegean Sea that will forciby return refugees to Turkey was tantamont to the UK Government abandoning the very people it claims to be helping. “There is great confusion about if they are…

Ending A Bosses Union

Imagine your union president resigned—and three months later, became a high-paid consultant for your employer. Reformers in the Association of Professional Flight Attendants used this unfortunate situation to spur their campaign to reclaim the union. President Laura Glading stepped down in October—under pressure from angry members, who were pushing for a special recall election. American then later announced that it had hired her as a consultant. “Laura Glading pretty much had management’s…

Migrants - ostracised and alienated

More than one in 10 people in Britain are estimated to be foreign-born, with India, Poland, Pakistan and Ireland traditionally among the biggest sources of new arrivals. A study by experts at the University of Manchester found that the hopes of young migrants arriving here are all too quickly shattered. The reality faced by young migrant men arriving in the UK, often after arduous journeys of thousands of miles, is that Britain in 2016 is a far cry from the land of their dreams. New arrivals…

Greed is the real killer

An article by Charles Davis on the Truth-Out website explains the mercenary effect of capitalism on health-care and is worth quoting at length. More than 920,000 children died of pneumonia in 2015, according to the World Health Organization. For 2015, Ian Read, the chairman and CEO of Pfizer who earned a salary of $23.3 million, reported that the pharmaceutical giant turned a $7.7 billion profit, driven in part by a 53 percent growth in revenue from the Global Vaccines division. Pfizer is…

THE FLATULENT REPUBLICAN (weekly poem)

THE FLATULENT REPUBLICAN. (The man who makes even Boris seem sane!) The rise of Donald Trump in the U.S. primaries represents a new low point in political idiocy. Hot air and noxious gases fan, Out from both mouth and rump; That flatulent Republican, The apt-named Donald Trump! This bilious, butch, billionaire, This laughable, lewd, lump; Complete with verbal derrière, The turgid Donald Trump. There’s certainly an anal need, To prime the piffle pump; The big-wig of the bullshit breed, (1)…

Towards A Better World

The capitalist system is behind all the ills that burden humanity today. Poverty, deprivation, discrimination, inequality, political repression, ignorance, bigotry, unemployment, homelessness, insecurity and crime are all inevitable products of this system. For sure those problems that ails society were not invented by capitalism and existed before capitalism but importantly they have found a new meaning in this society and found a new lease of life, corresponding to the needs of capitalism…

Life's Lottery

Wealthy women in Glasgow are now living more than a decade longer than their poorer counterparts – and the gap is widening. A new report from the Glasgow Centre for Population Health on health in Glasgow, shows the average life expectancy of affluent females is 85.2, while women living in the city's most deprived areas are only expected to reach 74.5. The gap has increased from 8.1 to 10.7 years over a 15-year period - a finding described as "unacceptable" by anti-poverty campaigners who…

Peacefully if possible, Forcibly if necessary Our culture is dominated by a set of beliefs that make us think that it's human nature for people to subjugate each other. It's become "common sense" that capitalism is the only way. But it isn’t true. Occupy was forcefully evicted by the state in collaboration with the complicity of the media. But it was incredibly successful in getting the message of the 99% and 1% out there. It was a training ground for many activists and it created a…

The Fat Cats Get the Cream

Slashing huge salaries ‘would not hurt economy’, says a London School of Economics report as new analysis finds leading CEOs earn average of £4.6m a year. Interviews with the top 10 international recruitment firms behind 70-90% of chief executive appointments in recent years found a consensus among so-called corporate kingmakers that levels of remuneration for the most senior executives are “absurdly high”. Headhunters claimed that, for every appointment of a CEO, another 100 people could…
