Is Socialism making a come back??

We all watched with great interest (or not) the party conferences and there were some interesting moments that may well have indicated that things are moving to the left.  At snails pace, I grant…Continue

A government's first duty is to protect its citizens!!

It is well known that the first duty of government is to protect the citizens to whom they are answerable.  Few will disagree with this, yet many will focus on this responsibility being carried out in a time of conflict and war.  However, this responsibility of defending, guarding or keeping safe has also to the honoured during peacetime.  Such protection extends to the young, the elderly, the sick and the disadvantaged.  Clearly, this government is neglecting its responsibility by ignoring the…See More

This is the Britain (America and Europe) we live in today!

Teresa May, our new PM, stated that she wants a Britain that works for all and not just the wealthy and influential.  She re-stated this view at the recent Tory Conference, yet the reality is very different.  If one reads the newspapers, watches or listens to the news, it is not hard to see that what she and her colleagues say in public and what is real are completely at odds.  By simply perusing the information that is in the public domain, it is clear that the Tory party is not on the side to…See More

Jeremy S Mills replied to joe taylor's discussion Do These Statements Make Sense re the Labour Leadership?
"For too long we have had a right wing agenda dominating politics.  That has resulted in there being no real alternative; just different versions of the same stale message.  Corbyn at last offers the chance of a real choice.  That is…"

The Tory Sycophants (Or should it be Sick-o-phants)

I watched the news last night and witnessed the appalling spectacle of Tory MP's falling over themselves to congratulate Cameron on his failure to muster support from EU leaders.  My own MP, Stephen O'Brien made reference to '...the previous Battle of Britain' and 'seeing off many Junkers.'   Some might say an amusing play on words.  Other Tories spoke of leadership.  What leadership?  That of a small group of Tory Euro-sceptics who live in an era long past; our questionable imperial age.…See More

The NHS under further attack

Recently the idea has been inserted quietly into the media of charging patients for making visits to their GP's.  It is suggested that it would be appropriate to introduce charges for richer patients and pensioners and for fines to be charged for patients who do not turn up for appointments, along with charges for hospital treatment.  I would agree that the cost of missed appointments does need to be tackled in some way but I'm not sure that this is the right solution. As for the other…See More
