House of Cards

The Con-Dem coalition staggers from one crisis to another. Tory MPs are not just in revolt against Clegg, but also against Cameron over the proposals to reform the House of Commons.

If agreed they would reduce the Lords from above 800 to 450 members. 80% would be elected for 15 years (by proportional representation) – if anyone could be bothered to vote for them and the remainder would be appointed by politicians – still enshrining the tradition of privilege and patronage. Why should such an anachronistic institution as the Lords exist anyway? The real battle is about who should have power in our country and what should be the future of parliament if it has one. What do we, the British people, understand by democracy when the main parliamentary parties are mired in sleaze, and all too willing to represent the interests of capital?

In the short term the survival of the Con-Dem coalition and the existence of the Lib-Dems are at stake. The longer term is our responsibility.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.
