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 ...

Labour MPs should oppose the welfare cap here's why | James Bloodworth
It may be difficult to do so politically, but Labour should reject this regressive measure because it will hit the poor hardestAs announced in last week's budget, the government's cap on welfare spending is set to be £119.5bn in 2015/16, increasing to £126.7bn by 2018/19.Most of the spending that falls under the welfare cap is made up of the state pensions (£80bn), tax credits (£25bn) and housing benefit (£23bn). Significantly, jobseeker's allowance (JSA) and the housing benefit that gets paid automatically to JSA claimants are not part of the cap."there is more spending that is not in the welfare cap (albeit virtually all state pension) than is within the cap. Overall, 30% of spending from within the welfare cap is on the richest half of society but 40% of the protected spend". Continue reading...
Tales from the Watercooler: Can you bear to be boring?
Often, a news story’s worth can be dictated by our mood at the time of reading it. If your Saturday glee is pronounced, you may not be too fussed about another banker salary revelation which, on a wet Tuesday morning, may have you grinding your teeth to a fine powder.
'The people are so beautiful!' That's enough of the colonial tourism | SE Smith
I don't want to travel to meet 'noble savages' but to enhance my understanding of the world in a responsible waySocialising as I do with many people who have had opportunities to travel, conversations about different corners of the world come up frequently, and those conversations often make me deeply uncomfortable. One such example is the "the people are so beautiful!" conversation, in which the residents of a given nation are described as gentle and kind and loving, so warm and welcoming. This creates a mental image for me of noble savages, of a simple, "pure" society that isn't, you know, troubled by the realities of the world for the rest of us; the old "first world problems" slang term strikes again.Here's the problem with this conversation: it's a reminder that the traveller is an observer, and most of the people I know who travel are from colonial nations, with positions of power and privilege in their home societies (otherwise travelling would be likely to be difficult).

Beware of cupcake fascism | Tom Whyman
A sickly sweet movement expresses the desire of an infantilised populace to hide from the world while imposing bourgeois valuesThe cupcake is barely a cake. When we think about what "the cake-like" ideally should be, it is something spongy, moist, characterised by excess, collapsing under its own weight of gooey jam, meringue, and cream. It is something sickly and wet that makes your fingers sticky. The cupcake is none of these things; that is, it possesses none of the ideal essence of cakiness. The cupcake is neat, precise, and uniform. It is dry, polite, and low-fat. It is defined by its shape, not its taste, and the cake-cup limits any potential excess. The cupcake is largely aimed at the sort of flat-stomached people who think consuming sweet things is "a bit naughty" and who won't even permit themselves to go overboard on their binges. The cupcake is vintagey and twee. It invokes a sense of wholesomeness and nostalgia, albeit for a past never experienced, a more perfect past, just
