Getting them onside

More importantly,  the rich always attract envy but they are the moneymakers for the government,  it's the latter who are responsible for utilising
some of that money to help the poorer.

  Poor Ange  ;D
Angela Rayner has made things “worse” for the people of Ashton-under-Lyne, voters in her Greater Manchester constituency claimed before they head to the polls on July 4.
Sir Keir Starmer’s deputy is said to be “nervous” about holding onto her relatively thin 4,263-seat majority, local council sources have told this website.
A Labour Party spokesperson told the Express Ms Rayner has been a “strong local champion for her community for nearly a decade”.
But on the ground in Ashton, it was clear many voters had serious concerns about the woman who served as their MP for ten years.
Receptionist Jenny Ardron-Adams, 56, said the town had become “severely run down”.

Alastair Campbell, former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s right-hand man during his premiership, is urging Britain’s Labour Party and its supposed rivals, the Conservative (Tory) Party, to form a uniparty coalition to stop Nigel Farage from winning the parliamentary constituency (electoral district) of Clacton.Campbell, a top spin doctor who infamously issued the British press with the “dodgy dossier” the Blair government used to justify the disastrous Iraq War, pressed Clacton Labour to “Please sort something out with the Tories” after a poll predicted Reform Party leader Nigel Farage would narrowly win the seat, ahead of the incumbent Tories, with Labour in third place but not too far behind.Clacton Labour candidate Jovan Owusu-Nepaul is proving something of a liability, with a record of boasting that “white man tears” are his “favorite drink.”Farage argues there are “no real, fundamental differences between” Labour and the Conservatives, with both parties presiding over a high tax burden and mass migration.They claim to be bitter rivals, however. The Conservatives present themselves as pro-borders, pro-tax cuts, and anti-woke–despite increasing immigration, taxes, and state-funded woke activism. They argue right-wingers should not vote for Reform because it would help Labour. Meanwhile, Labour figures, including Campbell, present the center-left Conservatives as “hard right.”A pact between the two in Clacton could stop Farage, whose party is currently polling ahead of the Conservatives nationally, but would also strengthen his argument that they are much the same.

A group of Conservative politicians have signed a “Hindu Manifesto” document calling for new “hate crime” rules and “streamlining immigration policy.”


Several Conservative Members of Parliament have endorsed a Hindu Manifesto demanding candidates commit to it in return for political support from the country’s one million Hindus at election time. The document comes amid warnings of the dangers of rising sectarianism by campaigners including Reform UK leader Nigel Farage.

Oh, Dear!


The Establishment are in full meltdown over Nigel's truthful assertion that NATO expansionism provoked Russia into taking military action against Ukraine which is, of course, precisely what it was intended to do. Sadly for the WEF it is not going entirely according to plan, although one of its objectives is being realised in full; two generations of white Christian males have so far been lost in that country. The latest aid package approved recently by Congress is intended to finish off another one, namely those in their 50s and 60s who can expect to be drafted very shortly.

There is "no doubt" the election betting inquiries will cost the Conservatives seats at the general election, a Tory candidate says
  • Former minister Tobias Ellwood tells the BBC that Rishi Sunak should suspend Conservative candidates involved in the "saga"
  • The Gambling Commission is looking into alleged bets by at least four Conservatives, including candidates Craig Williams and Laura Saunders, on the date of the general election
  • Labour plans to introduce a two-year "cooling-off" period before people can legally change their gender
  • A person would still need a gender dysphoria diagnosis but it would come from a single specialist doctor, rather than a panel
  • The Lib Dems are focusing on hospital waiting times; the SNP's John Swinney will give a speech on Brexit; while the DUP is launching its manifesto in Northern Ireland

    Liberal Democrats leader Sir Ed Davey speaks to media after a visit to Richard James Hub, London, while on the General Election campaign trail. Picture date: Tuesday June 18, 2024.[size=0.75rem]IMAGE SOURCE,[/size]PA MEDIA[/size]Elsewhere on the campaign trail, Liberal Democrats leader Ed Davey says he hopes a higher minimum wage for care workers would help recruit people from "supermarkets and Amazon warehouses", and reduce migration.
    A manifesto pledge of the Lib Dems is that care workers should earn at least £2 an hour more than the national living wage, which is currently £11.44.
    Speaking to BBC Radio Lancashire, Davey says the Conservative government has issued hundreds of thousands of visas for overseas workers to come to the UK, but "what we say is hold on a minute, why don't you just pay care workers properly?"
    "So people are thinking, 'am I going to work in a supermarket or an Amazon warehouse or a care home, actually I'd be paid quite a bit more if I worked in a care home', and if we did that we wouldn't have to issue those visas," he says.
    In a series of interviews with BBC local radio, he also defended the stunts he has carried out during the course of this election campaign, as a way to get the Lib Dems noticed in the media.

    It was in April 2022. The conference, which would have secured a peace deal acceptable to both Russia and Ukraine, was in Prague. Boris Johnson was sent waddling off to Kiev to persuade Coke Head not to sign the deal, offering promises of endless NATO support for a war that Ukraine cannot possibly win.


    As I believe I have stated before, Johnson is a superb contemporary example of 'The Banality Of Evil'.

    I've not heard that mentioned elsewhere so I'm pleased we both recall that.
