Thousands march against spending cuts

More than a quarter of a million people have marched through central London to deliver a powerful message about the government's cuts in public spending. The generally good-natured mood was soured by violent and destructive attacks on symbols of wealth including the Ritz, banks and a luxury car dealer, and an occupation of the upmarket food store Fortnum and Mason. Trade union organisers said that the turnout had exceeded their expectations, and thousands had travelled by coach and by train from as far as Edinburgh to vent their anger at the government's cuts by marching through London to a ...

We need a general election

Both the borough’s Labour MPs voted against dissolving parliament and holding an election. The vote follows months of scandal and allegations over Brent Labour MPs expenses claims, and a massive 25% drop in the Labour vote in last week’s European elections in Brent. Eight ministers have abandoned Gordon Brown’s government and internal disputes have overshadowed important policy debates.The only major party to move forward in the elections last week was Sarah Teather’s Liberal Democrats. Even David Cameron has admitted that the Conservatives can’t win in Brent ...

Britain has outsourced mayhem. Finally it's coming home

I believe that the current political crisis has little to do with the expenses scandal, still less with Gordon Brown's leadership. It arises because our economic system can no longer extract wealth from other nations. For the past 300 years, the revolutions and reforms experienced by almost all other developed countries have been averted in Britain by foreign remittances.The social unrest that might have transformed our politics was instead outsourced to our colonies and unwilling trading partners. The rebellions in Ireland, India, China, the Caribbean, Egypt, South Africa, Malaya, Kenya, Iran ...

The ABC's Ice Wars documentary is overblown and unhelpful | Nicole Lee
Ice Wars shows the dark side of crystal methamphetamine use, and there’s no doubt that the drug causes great harm, but creating fear and stigma helps no oneWithout doubt, crystal methamphetamine, or ice, is capable of causing immense harm. That’s true for many drugs, including alcohol. But, when facts are distorted to create fear and stigma, it helps no one. Not the people who use ice. Not their families. Not the health professionals supporting them. Not the police who enforce drug law.Ice Wars, airing over the next few weeks on ABC, shows the dark side of crystal methamphetamine use. It shows the great but difficult work that police, mental health and substance use treatment professionals do every day.

The young are paying for the privilege of unpaid work - and it's further entrenching inequality
Poorer Australians are less able to afford to take unpaid work experience and could find their job prospects restricted as a resultMost young Australians undertake unpaid work experience as part of their education or training, to maintain welfare entitlements or simply to improve their job prospects. But those from more disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to have those opportunities and those on placements associated with government benefits enjoy their experiences less.These are some of the key findings from our new report, funded by the commonwealth Department of Employment.

There are lessons to learn from the Centrelink data-matching fiasco | Helen Hodgson
The tax office has a light touch when dealing with debts. Centrelink could learn from them of the danger of matching data from different systemsThe commonwealth ombudsman has launched an investigation into Centrelink’s automated debt-recovery system. The issue had been referred after numerous complaints that the system, which matches income data reported to Centrelink with that held by the Australian Tax Office, was issuing incorrect debt notices to welfare recipients.The tax and social security systems can be seen as two sides of the same process – income support payments are a safety net funded through taxation. Both systems depend on an assessment of the financial resources of the “client”, whether a taxpayer or a recipient of a payment.

How Japan weaves caring and sharing into all layers of society
The Japanese believe politeness engenders order, safety and cleanliness – core values to live byAlthough they are ubiquitous, Japanese people rarely notice the grooved lines on their pavements. Every footpath that is wide enough seems to have these extruding lines. They inhibit the smooth movement of prams, wheelchairs and trolleys. In the rain or snow, they can be a hazard for the cyclists who share pavements with pedestrians. They are expensive to maintain.But these lines serve a purpose. With their prominently raised grooves they provide a means for blind people to traverse the city. They can feel these footpath guides with their feet or follow them with walking canes.
