Politics and Insights

[I can’t say any of it surprises me.]

One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction. It’s time to tell a chunk of that story, complete with the relevant documents.

#‎30JuneILFcloses‬: Today I’m working in the studio, trying to concentrate on my job, making and facilitating others to make music.  Excited about some schools work coming up! #SaveILF

I need to get a few myths busted before I do though.  ILF is not a benefit and so not part of the benefit cuts debate, its being pushed that way so the government can blurt out its rhetoric about its abhorent behaviour.  I do not pocket the money for myself, every penny is to support me to employ a brilliant team of PA’s to provide all the support I need to live and manage independently.

Independent Living is not about care (of course there is a relationship/cross-over) see the footnote below.

It is emerging that there is a view that I/we are somehow scaremongering about what is happening. That disabled people not on ilf are being ‘cared for’ (again…

Labour Briefing

What does Jeremy Corbyn stand for? Heiko Khoo provides some insights.

THIS IS HOW JEREMY INTRODUCED HIMSELF in the Newsnight Labour leadership debate on 17 June:

CorbynJ“I was first elected to Parliament 32 years ago, and I’ve spent that time in Parliament representing my constituency and standing up for rights and justice in Britain and all around the world. I believe that is the function of the Labour Party. But I also think that over the years we have lost our way. We’ve become cowed by powerful commercial interests, become frightened of the press, we’ve become frightened to stand up for what we absolutely believe in. I want a more equal society, I want a fairer society. I want a world at peace, not at war. I want the Labour Party to be the heart of the community that is demanding those things and demanding jobs, homes and hopes for…

The 2015 election result does at least give us clarity. The Labour Party is finished in any meaningful way as a vehicle to promote the needs of working people, the 99% of us who do not own the means of creating wealth and are completely reliant on decisions made by those with the power over whom we have no control.

The destruction of the Labour Party gathered pace in the 1980’s and was effectively sealed by the elevation of the Blair/ Brown axis, (facilitated by Alastair Campbell, Peter Mandelson and Phillip Gould) to the Party leadership.

In 1997 Blair inherited a somewhat benign economic scenario from John Major and was able to offer a few more scraps from the capitalist table, assuaging some minor clamours for social justice. The minimum wage and advances in health and education spending were laudable. But they were predicated on so called “supply side” economics…

The Jezolution will not be televised


After having snatched himself a place in the Labour leadership contest, Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn has ignited a social media explosion. Traditional Labour supporters, and even ex-Labour supporters were whipped up into a frenzy after austerity opposing Jeremy, a vocal advocate of social equality, gained the signatures of 36 MPs, securing himself a place as an official candidate. Jeremy has been championing the victims of injustice throughout his life. Out of his three opponents, Liz Kendall, who is viewed as the outright Blairite amongst the 4 contenders threw herself into the deep end during the initial Labour Leader debate. Kendall, rather than give coherent policies as to how she is going to help the most vulnerable in society, instead spoke of the ”aspirations” of people; an overly used sound bite which is used by none other than David Cameron himself. Jeremy…
