It just so happened that a cat came along and appears to embody the Buddha at that exact moment – and this made for an excellent photograph!
Mark Chambers explained to me that due to the fact that he has separated from his partner, local Social Workers, acting in conjunction with the Family Court, have prevented him from having access to his four children. This is despite the fact that he has proven in Court that the allegations levelled against him by Social Workers (such as he ‘hates women’), are false and have no substance in reality.
The struggle continues just it did before. It repeats in cycles of highs and lows, and we as individuals and groups – what I call the resistance to the rightwing – must gather in our energy and regroup around common political values and spiritual ideals.
A new grass roots political movement is needed to represent the workers and take the initiative away from Labour and their confidence trick of claiming to represent the workers at each election. If Labour continues to take hard earned money from the workers via union dues – then it has a moral duty to represent those who funds its existence. The fact that Labour continues to take working class money but refuses to represent the workers suggests a very exploitative relationship. This situation has allow a far-right fascist Tory Party to gain power for a second time. This kind of duplicity has cost lives, and will continue to take lives.
Within the Chinese Buddhist tradition, there are seven classes of disciples:
The CPB called upon voters to support the local Labour Party candidate in an effort to keep the Tories out of power. Some fellow Comrades did not agree with this policy – as the Labour Party nolonger pursues leftwing policies that represent the workers, but rather policies that pander to middle class sentiment and aspiration.
