U turns or EU Return which will you choose?

U-Turns a sign of people power DONT THROW IT AWAY FOR AN EU - RETURN
Working tax credits, disability benefits, unaccompanied refugee orphans, turning state schools into academies, sugar tax, recruitment of overseas nursing staff, liberalising Sunday trading laws, agreeing to talk to junior doctors and in the previous times reverses to cuts in legal aid, anti trade union laws, criminal fines and primary school testing.

What do all these things have in common? The above government reverses show the power of people to hold our government accountable for its actions. This is the British way!

If we vote to remain in the EU we will lose all ability to bring about such reverses or hold anyone to account for future decisions about our lives as these will be done in Strasbourg or Brussels not London. 

We will be lucky if we even find out just who is responsible for these remotely taken anti democratic decisions and have difficulty just pronouncing their names if we ever do. That is worth thinking about as June 23rd fast approaches.! The therefore irrational wish by the Labour party to remain in the EU to whom we are we are surrendering freedom to be enslaved by big corporations. 

Furthermore under TTIP for the first time ever those US corporations ability to make a profit will be underwritten by the tax paying public of the country in which they are operating.

All the firms have to do is to have their expensively employed legal teams identify some obscure (or not so obscure) EU regulations (and God knows the EU is completely awash with those) as an excuse to sue. Big US tobacco used an Obama TTIP deal to sue Uruguay for $2 billion because they claimed their profits were hit by having to put cancer warnings on cigarette packets. Workers wages hurt profits too prior to winding up in a Panama tax haven.

The fact that they will then be able to take such cases before the special trade dispute court which will have a judge appointed by those corporations plus one appointed by the unelected EU commission and an alleged independent, will ensure their chances of winning the argument are highly more enhanced and indeed speeded up than through a normal court.

The only way to stop this happening is to take back accountability and control of holding those we actually elect to full account by voting to leave this new burgeoning superstate of the United States of EU.

David Cameron calls for political courage to seal TTIP deal

Greenpeace secret TTIP expose full documents download here

The BBC will prove a primary target for the unelected EU Commission - USA corporations TTIP annual review of all government services and monopolies for forced privatisation.

The reason is that they will require a tame media to control the information we are fed about what they are really up to when TTIP kicks in fully.

For a media company like the BBC this propaganda aspect is nothing new because currently it slavishly churns out the pro EU government line. All that will change for them is who they are producing the propaganda for.

Its supreme irony though that the pet project they are spending so much time and energy promoting will in the end lead to the BBCs own irrevocable and utter destruction

He Cam He saw He lied! Obama is not what he seems.

President Obama was elected on a huge wave of hope that he would radically chanthings for millions of impoverished ordinary Americans. Instead he betrayed that popular groundswell to make their lives better.

Somewhere along the way he dashed all that hope when he made a pact with corporate America. Now the only betterment he is interested in is that of Barack Obama. His presidency is in decline and he knows it so what of his legacy?

TTIP the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership, TPP theTrans Pacific Partnershi  plus TISA his Trade in Services Agreement.

Let's take the latter Trade in Services Agreement. The clue is in the apparently innocuous title. Big business namely the US corporations want the ability to trade in services and to be able to privatise them. Its already here in the UK check out the UK treasury website.

UK Treasury TISA website

 Our treasury being run by an ex Wallstreet whizzkid one Mark Carney who previously worked for Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sach already pay the wages bill at Britain Stronger in Europe.

His TTIP deal is even being speeder up after years of procrastinating by the lumbering EU bureaucracy requiring agreements with 27 disprate members. The unelected commission faced with a possible brexit however cynically dismissive Junckers was when he stated he needs to change nothing as our vote to remain was assured, plus the Dutch anti TTIP referendum call now even  sees this urgency too. Their nightmare is remove the UK brick when we quit and the whole rotten EU building then collapses around them. Corporate America did not spend its time and dollars to buy Obama for that to happen!

If Corporations cash can buy a president what else can it purchase? Boris Johnston was late to the Brexit table. Several days after Cameron untied his party Boris apparently jumped down off the fence. He has been making it up as he went bumbling along ever since. His original plan and one he has never really abandoned was to win a brexit then renegotiate a better deal. That bombed why fight for 20 years to quit then beg our way back into the same toxic club.

Now every utterance he comes out with like brexiting like Canada or the latest rubbish about Churchills statue (who fed him this garbage in the first place we wonder BSE perhaps) is comprehensively shot down in minutes by first Cameron and the latter Obama. A cynic would think the entire episodes was stage managed from beginning to end AND IM A Dyed in the wool CYNIC.

Obama has sold out, Boris has sold, out and when you realise that MPs can be bought for the price of as duck house who else will these ruthless corporations not buy? They are a spent force as far as those who trusted and elected them are concerned and a bought force of big business.

As many have been moved to sing in honour of Her Majesties 90th birthday and even Cameron has exhorted us to observe in our National Anthem:

 "O Lord our God arise Scatter her enemies And make them fall Confound their politics Frustrate their knavish tricks On Thee our hopes we fix God save us all"

Confound their politics indeed,

Frances Rise Up At Night. Mare

Anger is rising in France due to Msr Holland's plans to cut wages increase working hours and reduce overtime pay. A new popular movement is spreading across France in opposition to the austerity measures calling itself Rise Up At Night.

The movement says the government is destroying the hopes and aspirations of the young. A combination of factors on top of the working hours measure has served to fuel the anger on the streets like a chronic lack of affordable housing for young people.

For over a fortnight the movement has orchestrated protests in central Paris against the imposition of the measures. There are daily stand offs and skimishing between police and protesters who use pepper spays against the rioters who throw anything they can get their hands on in response. The wave of angry protests were initially against the proposed draconian labour reforms but following government concessions like a €400million package to placate angry young protesters

President Holland's government is emerging badly from the backlash its policies have provoked.Holland's claimed the reforms are his governments response to try to tackle record unemployment in France especially among youth who are particularly hard hit.

However the imposition of a proposed 35 hour working week waspercieved as Frances socialist administration going much too far. Recent opinion polls in the country indicate that as high a figure as 76% of people there want to see Hollande quit by 2017.
