Two fingers on the environment David Cameron, a lorry driving around with your stupid poster.

If you see a Tory poster, please subvert it. Plenty of ideas here.

BBC: Tories not the Nasty Party

Nasty Party

I have just listened to the most sickening biased programme from the BBC, a half hour programme trying to justify the Tory Party not the Nasty Party.

Try telling that to all those ‘assessed’ by Atos who had their disability allowances quashed.

Try telling that to all the victims of the Bedroom Tax who are at risk of eviction from their homes.

Try telling that to all those who are seeing cuts thanks to slash and burn of public services under the guise of austerity.

Try telling that to all who are now dependent on food banks, not as one stupid Tory councillor claimed because it was a lifestyle choice, but because they are desperate.

Tories have attracted the name the Nasty Party, as that is what they are.

Local and European Elections 2014

Why the surprise at the results? The surprise is the surprise, or maybe we should not be surprised that political commentators and mainstream parties are so out of touch.

Anyone who has an ear to the ground would not be at all surprised at the results.

Ukip have trashed the other parties. Why, because people are sick of the other parties, sick of the EU and want to see tight controls on immigration.

What was disgraceful during the campaign was the smear tactics used against Ukip.

Labour blame failure to tackle Ukip. That was not the problem. The problem is the failure to offer any radical alternative to the hated ConDem government. All Labour offer is Tory Lite. A leader who is incapable of coherent argument, who speaks in meaningless sound bites.

The only party offering a radical alternative is the Green Party. And yet they barely got a look in, thus the public is not aware of their polices: EU referendum, tight controls on immigration, renationalise the railways, no to fracking, safeguard the NHS, a living wage, derail HS2, no second runway at Gatwick, no third runway at Heathrow, tackling of climate chaos …

We could have had an EU referendum during the May elections. Why did we not? Because the outcome is known, a massive NO to EU.

Labour are refusing an EU referendum, which shows arrogant contempt for the people. The position of the Tories little better, sometime in the future in Never Never Land.

The contempt the Tories have for the people was shown when one day after the elections, they made an important announcement on fracking.

It is not only England that seeks a destruction of the EU. It is true in other countries too. The same applies to mass immigration.

In Cyprus, their tourist industry is being destroyed through use of cheap immigrant labour. Cheap Romanians and Bulgarians, who do not speak English who lack any knowledge of Greek let alone Cypriot culture, who make no contribution to the local economy. Side by side with the use of cheap immigrant labour, high local unemployment, reliance upon food banks.

Cyprus and Greece have seen their economies destroyed by the EU.

The EU is corrupt, undemocratic, a tool of big businesses, an attempt by Nazis in the dying days of the Third Reich to create the Fourth Reich.

Break up of the EU is not a left-right issue, it is an issue of democracy and accountability.

LibDems blame their trashing on being willing to take on Ukip. They did not, Nick Clegg came across as a fool, Vince Cable a clown. LibDems are a party entirely lacking in principles. The party whose only interest is power, who will do anything to remain in power, and it is this lust for power that has been their downfall. The party that delivered austerity, Bedroom Tax, a tripling of student fees, massive growth in food banks, workfare, class warfare on poor, disabled, destruction of NHS, hike in rail fares. The LibDems deserve to be wiped out. Nick Clegg will be written in the footnotes as the unprincipled leader of the LibDems who destroyed the party. If Nick Clegg had any decency or integrity left, he would have resigned.

The LibDems are going to be wiped out for a generation, and they deserve to be. And the LibDems cannot pile all the blame on Nick Clegg. They are calling for the sacking of Nick Clegg. They should have ousted him as soon as he sold out the party for a handful of silver. They did not as so they are all tarred with the same brush.

The mainstream media talk of a redrawn four party political scene. Once again they have lost the plot. It is now a five party political scene, with the LibDems as also rans.

In the Rotten Borough of Rushmoor, only two Green candidates stood in the local elections, they only announced they were standing a couple of weeks before the elections, and yet by highlighting the contempt the local council has for local people, they managed a respectable second and third place in the respective seats they challenged. In the Euro elections: UKIP 7712, Tories 6435, Labour 3636, Green Party 1661, Libdems 1491.

There is something else happening, reflected in low turnout out, far more important than elections and political parties and that is the move to a gift economy and collaborative commons. It is slowly, slowly gathering momentum.
