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 ...

Using superannuation to pay for housing: a bad idea that refuses to die | John Daley for the Conversation
The latest thought bubbles won’t inspire confidence. If Scott Morrison really wants to tackle housing affordability, he needs to address demand and supply The treasurer, Scott Morrison, wants to use the May budget to ease growing community anxiety about housing affordability. Lots of ideas are being thrown about: the test for the treasurer is to sort the good from the bad. Reports that the government was again considering using superannuation to help first homebuyers won’t inspire confidence.It’s not the first time a policy like this has been floated within government. While these latest ideas to use super to help first homebuyers are marginally less bad than proposals from 2015, our research shows they still wouldn’t make much difference to housing affordability.

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.

How Cyclone Debbie exposed the perfect storm awaiting Australia's food supply
Our food system has served us well until now but land use pressures and climate change will make it harder in futureCyclone Debbie, which lashed the Queensland coast a week ago, has hit farmers hard in the area around Bowen – a crucial supplier of vegetables to Sydney, Melbourne and much of eastern Australia.With the Queensland Farmers’ Federation estimating the damage at more than $100m and winter crop losses at 20%, the event looks set to affect the cost and availability of fresh food for millions of Australians. Growers are reportedly forecasting a price spike in May, when the damaged crops were scheduled to have arrived on shelves. Related: After the flood: 'No tourists please.
