The Rich & Powerful Piss on Us – The Media Tell Us It’s Raining

Ignore the predictions of the unreliable and rigged opinion polls conducted primarily by organisations owned and controlled by right-wing Tory millionaires more intent on shaping opinions than reflecting them; this current General Election is very much in the balance. A Jeremy Corbyn led government with SNP support for radical budgetary measures which significantly improve the quality of life and standard of living for millions across the UK is a very real possibility. The panic among the British ruling Establishment is tangible. Several strategies were meant to guarantee Corbyn and his radical wealth redistribution policies were strangled at birth. The powerful […]

Jo Swinson is both Queen of Austerity and Warmonger – Dump Her

It took the LibDem leader one second to deliberate, consider and assess the most colossal question of all and it removed any lingering doubts that Jo Swinson is simply unfit to be an elected MP, let alone the Prime Minister of the UK. Would you “be prepared to use a nuclear weapon” she was asked during a one to one interview and instantaneously, without any context, consideration or hesitation a nonchalant “yes” was the answer, so relaxed it sounded like a laid back “yeah”.

Johnson only has One Punch but Jeremy has to Land More Blows

In truth it was a dull as dishwater fight with both men showing signs of nervous tension which clearly inhibited their performances. Johnson set […]

By Tommy Sheridan Hopefully today’s atrocious set of statistics in relation to the performance of the NHS in England will prove fatal to Boris Johnson’s bid to become the elected PM of the UK. For fifteen years three key targets have been used to measure the health of the NHS. They are; a) waiting times at Accident and Emergency Departments; b) waiting times for planned and routine operations; and c) how quickly cancer patients start treatment after diagnosis. The results for October 2019 are the worst since records began and confirm what doctors, nurses, other health professionals and patient groups […]

Trade Union Laws are rigged against the Workers – CWU Must Fight Back

By Tommy Sheridan The class nature of British society was exposed for all to see in glorious technicolour at the Royal High Courts in London today. In a matter of minutes a single unelected judge, Lord Swift, granted an injunction sought by the Royal Mail Group (RMG) to nullify a massive industrial strike action ballot conducted by the postal service union, the Communication Workers Union (CWU). Over 110,000 CWU members were consulted in the ballot. The highest turnout ever recorded in an industrial action ballot was witnessed. An amazing 75.9% of the workers returned their ballot papers and incredibly over […]
