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.

The EU's vaccine export ban is potentially a genocidal policy, an act of an enemy. There are still remainers who would have us back in. The SNP & Alba after breaking up Britain would seek membership of the gangster EU.
Better together! Oppose the EU!

The EU wants to impose a vaccine export ban without saying it’s a ‘vaccine export ban’.
As usual, they play with language to deny their most unpleasant motives.

There have been numerous calls for Sturgeon to resign, on the grounds she has misled parliament. The workers of Scotland now should give the SNP it's marching orders, for attempting to create division in the British working class.
