Newell News-round up, week 19

Free bradley

This week we will just get straight into it.

NHS/Health

VICTORY! Lewisham A&E has been saved this week as the high court over ruled Jeremy Hunt, citing that he acted illegally in his move to close the department. The scenes of euphoria were something to behold and a timely reminder to us all that collectively we can turn back the tide of oppression and austerity we face.

99% of patients were happy with their NHS care, 100% of the Conservative Party want to privatise it any way.

Save Lewisham

A doctor has prescribed surgery to remove fallopian tubes in a pre-emptive move to beat ovarian cancer. It has drawn some scepticism from Cancer Research who say there is no evidence to support such a suggestion and is another act in a worrying trend of fashionable surgeries to beat cancer. Angelina Jolie recently underwent a double mastectomy to reduce the chances of her developing breast cancer saying it did not affect her woman hood.

Human Rights/Hatred UK

Bradley Manning, found not guilty of aiding the enemy, still faces 130 plus years in prison for not following orders. See what we had to say about that here.

 

After the hate vans ‘go home’ we had spot checks for immigration visa’s. The BLACK SHIRTS are in town! Of course these were brown people in deprived areas of London town. Wonder if they are going to do spot checks at the local Walkabout bar and check for Australian’s who’s visa’s may have expired? No, just Trenton Oldfield then is it? What kind of world are we living in? You cannot be illegal on your own planet.

Workers rights are being smashed by the not so new phenomenon of the zero hour contract and whilst the public get set to protest the media’s main focus, Mike Ashley and Sports Direct, the frugal Queen with her 52 bedrooms and 78 toilets at Buckingham Palace get away with the same contracts being offered out to her wage slaves without so much as a whimper. This news ‘broke’ only a week after I had written about the Daily Hate Mail front page, stating that firms have a duty to employ British people, echoing Gordon Brown’s comments in 2009 that there should be British jobs for British people.

Environment

Lord Howell, George Osborne’s father-in-law, has said we should ‘frack’ the desolate North East..no wait, sorry, the North West. You cannot make it up. Whilst the battle for Balcombe continues  we have clowns like this wading in with ridiculous comments. 40 years of shale gas or not, it does not solve a whole list of problems we face regarding energy, what do we do after 40 years? What do we make everything out of? What about our water sources? What about seismic activity?

Finance

52% of the UK are now struggling with their bills in 2013. This is an increase of 9 million people who now struggle financially but interestingly only two weeks ago George Osborne informed us that the UK economy was on the mend and before this that we never had a double dip recession. A man also told the Daily Mail that the high street is dead and that the only thing left will be Tesco and Costa.

World

Terror alert, BE AFRAID. The US announced that there was imminent danger as the end of Ramadan came and they drew back on their drone assault on Yemen, prompting fears that the US embassy in Yemen may be subject to an attack… If you drone bomb innocent people then you may expect them to be upset. The US and the UK are engaged in acts of terror everyday, one way of ending the war of terror is to stop participating in it.

Technology 

Future king has penis drawn on his forehead, world goes nuts. You cannot make it up.

Why art is crucial to change was discussed by Peter Joseph on Russia Today with Abby Martin. Kill the artist, kill the protest!

Twitter silence started at 00:01 this morning and finishes at 23:59 tonight in an attempt to highlight Twitter’s failings to deal with abuse and ‘trolling’ on the 140 character or less website. There has been much debate about the worth of this act, we wonder whether or not those abstaining from Twitter have also withdrawn from other sources of misogyny and rape culture for the day such as The Sun on Sunday, Facebook, Lynx or anyone of a hundred other items portrayed using rape culture through advertising?

Bees are to be tracked using a new radio antennae with Rothamstead Scientists taking the lead on the project from Harpenden. We do not know why honey bees are dying off but if they die out we are in serious trouble. I hope it has nothing to do with the GMO crops they have been trialling in Rothamstead Park…

Newell News-round up, week 17 and 18

News round-up took a two-week break so tonight we will take you through a whistle-stop tour of the obvious and not so obvious from the past couple of weeks

NHS

Is SOLD! the government have allowed a £1bn contract sell off to occur. The outsourcing project will see invites of bids from £700 to £1bn and will no doubt see Jeremy Hunt’s bearded friend Richard Branson of Virgin Care coming in to take over the end of life care department. There are no lows that these people will not sink to. Profiting from the illness and death of the public.

Your blood or rather plasma has been SOLD! Plasma UK has been sold off to U.S. venture capitalist Bain Capital now, who own an %80 stake in them. For those of you unaware, Bain Capital have fingers in lots of pies as with all good capitalist monopolies, including Dominoes pizza but not apparently UK Dominoes… You cannot make this up.

There are daily articles about dangerous nurses, bad trusts and a hole host of other things being peddled by the main stream media. These are exceptions to the rule, the rule being that doctors and nurses are wonderful people who do amazing things everyday that many of us would never be able to do even if our lives or that of our loved ones depended on it. Do not let them be stolen away by blood thirsty soul sucking vampires intent on making a living off our misfortune.

Human Rights

Internet pornography has been David Cameron’s big issue the past couple of weeks, aside from Labour and the union barons and he has pushed through some reform that will mean censorship of the internet. The attack has been very visceral regarding porn but with young family members that use the Internet all the time I have never come across them looking at lady boys daily or any other online porn, which raises the question what has darling David been looking at to be so worried? Unsurprisingly it is not limited to internet porn but covers a wide spectrum of other things that you must opt in to if you want access.However most humans will probably go for default settings, thus meaning they will be screening out this blog amongst many other things the state will not want them to see. 1984 was never more real than it is right now. For further reading see Laurie Penny’s article for New Statesman.

If David is that worried about the psyche of our children he may want to address this.

Hatred UK Gohomevans

Go Home Vans…It is enough to make you sick. The allowance of a rise in fascism to let right-wing agenda creep into main stream politics. The only reason these vans are being plastered about the street is to spread hatred, mistrust and fear amongst one another. “Is your neighbour illegal? Dial 0800 FASCISTPIGS” You cannot write it. There is a picture doing the rounds on the internet of another billboard van from the 1930’s doing the same thing but as yet I have not authenticated it.

Environment

The government have four people advising them that have a vested interested in the energy firms who stand to profit from fracking. You couldn’t make it up. There have been anti fracking protests this week in Balcombe as the search for gas and oil begins in earnest and the police brutality has been close behind. The police have to see that they are responsible for the world that is being created and that their interest lay with the people and not the state. These vans arrived the same time as the Royal spawn.

The Daily Hate Mail front page this week was that firms have a duty to employ British people, echoing Gordon Brown’s comments in 2009 that there should be British jobs for British people. I hope the are not brown British people they are talking about otherwise the EDL, Ukip and BNP will be most displeased.

The UK have a complacency on arctic drilling that should worry us all, the issue being how an oil spill of any magnitude would be cleaned up in such a harsh environment. As with both of these issues it is not the planet that needs saving, it is the humans. George Carlin once said that the planet would be fine and that it may have created humans so that it might eat plastic. The damage done to the environment will directly affect us and we have a duty to provide a world that allows our descendants to flourish and be nourished by it.

Finance

Need a loan? Then ask your local church! So some back ground, one of David Cameron’s former advisors, Jonathan Luff, now works for Wonga. You cannot make it up. They are all over the television and providing loans to people with huge interest rate returns. The church has directly invested into Wonga and it has been one hell of a mess. What is the church doing you might think? Then it comes out about their other investments, including the arms trade but they do not apparently get involved directly with making arms, just providing component parts and it must go to people with good moral standing. What would Jesus say? He would no doubt be spinning on his cross.

Whilst the Royal spawn was being pushed out and Kay Burley was quizzing the hospital on how dilated Kate was, Japan was busy telling the UK it should be mindful of withdrawing from the EU as it would make it less appetising for the Japanese to build cars and manufacture other stuff here as trade with Europe would become a problem.

World

The world has been busy! In Japan commuters joined together to lift a train off of a passenger proving that the empathic civilisation is not dead just yet. Luckily for them there were no U.S drones coming in for a second strike to kill the first responders.

Bradley Manning is in the dock and about to be tried by the barbarian hordes responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq.

Buy your clothes from one of Philip Greens establishments? Then you are contributing to the dangerous working conditions for thousands of people living in Bangladesh that no one in this country would put up with (at the minute) as he refuses to sign up to a safety deal following the building collapse earlier this year and the numerous fires that have devastated their lives and work places. When profits rule, health, safety and honesty go out of the window.

The UK is profiting to the tune of £12bn from arms exports to regimes with questionable human rights; namely the apartheid state of Israel, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. War is good for business and with the world rising up against oppressive regimes, business is booming.

The people of Egypt are on the streets with rival rallies for and against Morsi who was recently usurped in a military coup, called for by the people. Dozens of people have been killed and there is real danger of Egypt descending into civil war.

Remember Libya? The violence is escalating in Libya at present with a prominent activist being shot and killed

Iraq. I have lost count how many have died in the past week but the violence rampaging through Iraq is startling. The following links show two of the most recently reported. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-23481088 and http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/19/world/middleeast/suicide-bombers-shiite-mosque-baghdad-iraq.html?_r=0 The blood left on Tony Blair’s hands must never be forgotten. 

Detroit City went broke at the same time as JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs recorded profits almost to the level before the financial crises that started 2008.

And whilst some babies were being born in to a life of privilege, with people hoping for a daughter, millions of other daughters face the prospect of genital mutilation.

Science and Tech

This week we were paled into insignificance by the marvellous picture of Earth taken from the orbit of Saturn. We are truly a pale blue dot spinning around at a thousand miles an hour through the cosmos. We are a people capable of great innovation and empathy as shown by the Japanese train crash and the picture of Earth, why we must debase ourselves at the behest of the soul suckers is beyond me.
