Dear Adrian

Thank you for your email. I don’t accept the premise that it violates the Good Friday Agreement, nor that the DUP are a terrorist organisation as you imply. The Conservative Party, through which the confidence and supply agreement has been made has never been neutral on the matter of the Union. The party’s full name is the Conservative & Unionist Party. The Labour Party clearly thought the same when holding pre-coalition talks with the DUP in 2010 and 2015. However the government remains neutral in its dealings with Stormont, thus complying with the Good Friday Agreement.

Thank you once again for taking the time to get in touch.

Best wishes

Dear Mr Paul Scully MP

I would be very interested in reading your viewpoint regarding the possibility that the Tory ‘coalition’ with the Christian terrorist DUP is illegal because it violates the ‘impartiality’ clause of the ‘Good Friday Agreement’.

Thank you for your time in this mater.

How Labour’s (2017) General Election Defeat Continues to Haunt the Ordinary British People

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The rightwing Tories represent the corporate establishment – that is middle and upper class cultural and business interests. This includes the non-payment of personal and corporate tax, and the rejection of any form of re-distributing wealth amongst the Working Class. in-short – the Tories represent a complete and total rejection of any form of Socialism and empowerment of the ordinary workers within a capitalist society. The Labour Party has not advocated Class Revolution since the early years of its inception (in the late 19th century), and even then such calls were half-hearted. When Socialist Members of the Labour Party renamed themselves ‘Communists’ around 1921 (in solidarity with Lenin’s Russian Revolution), they were expelled from the Labour Party – never to be re-admitted. This is why Labour’s call for Socialism remains thoroughly bourgeois in nature, and amounts to a collaboration with the forces of capitalism – rather than its over-throw. Even with this substantial compromise, however, the Conservative Party will not even consider what amounts to a ‘minor’ and downward re-distribution of wealth that would leave the capitalist system intact, and class privilege firmly in place. To this end the Tories are busy carrying-out two broad policies to prevent Jeremy Corbyn becoming a ‘Socialist’ Prime Minister: 1) mimicking certain peripheral Labourite policies (in an attempt to take votes away from Labour), and b) continuing unabated (and in an accelerated fashion) to ‘privatise’ the NHS and dismantle the Welfare State (inaccordance with EU legislation). As these services are cut, the tax-burden is not reduced, but continues to increase and be gathered by a bourgeois government that is re-distributing wealth in an ‘upward’ direction (through tax-cuts) – making the wealthier even richer in a manner that is quite pointless to the health of the British nation. In the meantime, the Tory government is using this ‘stolen’ wealth (paid for by the Working Class), to rage imperialist wars in support of US neo-colonial foreign policies (generally in securing oil supplies and revenue). What a despicable political party these Tories represent – which will not even allow a highly compromised version of Labourite Socialism to make life at least ‘tolerable’ for the majority of ordinary people in the UK – whilst the rich continue to live their lives of debauchery and excess.

Update: Tory MP Paul Scully (Sutton & Cheam) States ‘NO’ money Given to DUP! (22.7.2017)

Following Paul Scully’s recent lack of answers to my emailed questions the Tories donating over a £1 billion to the Christian terrorist group DUP – I replied pointing-out that I had reported him to Theresa May’s Office for his lack of parliamentary duty, evasion of questions, and unprofessional attitude. He then provided the following reply stating that Northern Ireland is one of the poorest areas of the UK – and that the Tories have not given any money to the DUP! This is obviously delusional, as the Tories have impoverished the UK through ‘Austerity’ since 2010, to levels of deprivation unknown since the Victorian era! He did not vote to end the 1% pay-cap on public sector workers because such a move would have apparently brought-down the Tory government and let Jeremy Corbyn in!

Thanks Adrian

I was responding to your original email. However in turn:

  1. It’s not a coalition as I mentioned in my previous email
  2. The government has given no money to the DUP. Money has gone to the NHS, schools and infrastructure in Northern Ireland to the benefit of all who live there in one of the poorest parts of the UK
  3.  The amendment to the Queen’s speech was worded specifically to embarrass the government but would have had no immediate benefit for those in the public sector. Amending the Queen’s speech effectively ‘no confidences’ the government and so risks bringing it down. This would have led to Jeremy Corbyn spending a few weeks failing to gain sufficient support to forma government and then another general election before a budget which may have then brought about a response to the various pay review boards. The government have stated that they will look at the review boards in turn.

Paul Scully MP (Sutton & Cheam) Fails to Answer my Questions but Blames Labour for Tory-DUP Alliance! (22.7.2017)

SU19057

Paul Scully MP represents a particularly callous incarnation of the Tory Party – one that was found ‘Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity’ by the UN in 2016 – for the deaths of between 10,000-80,000 people with disabilities since the 2010 and the instigation of identically led ‘Austerity’ (which is simply an attack on Socialism). Recently, I emailed Mr Paul Scully about his voting habits – particularly where he voted to keep the 1% pay-cap for public sector workers. This should not be surprising, as this the Tory MP who refused to support me in condemning a far-right march in Scotland, and who is personally over-seeing the ‘privatisation of our local St Helier Hospital. As usual, Mr Paul Scully does not reply promptly, and there is always a risk that he will not respond at all (as has been my experience dealing with him in e past). After re-sending my below email no less than three times as the weeks rolled by, I complained directly to Theresa May this morning, and in a matter of two or three hours – Mr Paul Scully issued a miraculous reply (also included below). However, as usual Mr Paul Scully MP has failed to answer my questions.

Dear Mr Paul Scully MP for Sutton and Cheam
As one of many of your constituents that is concerned with your voting habits in Parliament, I would be very grateful if you could provide a written answer to this email within a reasonable time, (as is your Parliamentary duty), to the following question(s).
1) Please explain why Theresa May – the Tory Prime Minister – has gifted over £1bn of British tax-payer’s money to the Christian terrorist group of Northern Ireland – the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) – which the Conservative Party has entered into ‘Coalition’ with.
2) In the light of the Tory financial support for this Northern Irish terrorist group, please explain why you voted for the continuation of the ‘Austerity’ measures that support the Emergency & Public Service Pay Caps & Cuts.
In this time of the Austerity-led Grenfell disaster – I am sure you will appreciate the ‘alarm’ and ‘concern’ that Tory Party policies are causing throughout the UK (and Ireland), within the minds of all right-minded people.
Thank you for your time in this matter.
Yours sincerely

Dear Adrian

Thank you for your email. I’m sorry for the delay in my response.

The agreement with the DUP is not a coalition but one of ‘confidence and supply’. The DUP play no role in government and have no ministerial positions in contrast with the Liberal Democrats in the 2010-2015 coalition. Rather the agreement is limited to them voting with the government on the Queen’s speech and the Budget; the failure to get either through would effectively bring the government down.

The Labour Party were happy enough to have early coalition talks with the DUP in both 2010 and 2015. Sinn Fein were agreeable to sharing power with the DUP in Stormont for 10 years. Having the DUP in mainstream politics is not new. They bear little resemblance to the party that Ian Paisley founded in 1971.

I don’t share the views of the DUP on abortion or LGBT rights but these are devolved powers and so rights within the rest of the British Isles will not change as a result of the agreement. One positive benefit through a deft move by the Labour MP, Stella Creasy, was the change to ensure that women travelling to the UK from Northern Ireland for abortion services will no longer have to pay.

Thank you once again for taking the time to get in touch.

A Glimpse of the Murderous Nature of Capitalism!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Western wikipedia, of course, publishes ‘fake’ history about the Soviet Union that has no bearing to recorded history – but remains absolutely ‘silent’ about the very real and obvious crimes and excesses committed by the economic system we are all brain-washed to follow – called ‘capitalism’. Even though capitalism privileges the few over the many – the many unquestionably accept the lie that the many are privileged over the few, when everyday facts are clear, and speak for themselves. The crimes of capitalism are so immense and wide-ranging that I can only point-out a few aspects here. According to Russian demographic records – 5.8 million Russian people died between 1991-1999 – the first decade of capitalism in modern Russia. Of course, the biased Western media remains silent on this atrocity because ‘greed’ is more powerful than ‘caring’. I have also read that according to stats from the US – 7 million people have died since 2010 in the US due to the economic collapse and the US government’s response of ‘cutting’ budgets to relieve the tax burden on the rich. Of course, in the UK since 2010 (and the imposition of Tory and LibDem ‘Austerity’), the total numbers of poor and vulnerable people who have died remains unrecorded as a distinct category – but the UN Report of 2016 (that found the UK government ‘Guilty of Crimes Against Humanity’ for its despicable treatment of British Disabled people) – suggests a number between 10,000 and 80,000 – with the DWP releasing the death figures piece-meal so as to downplay the disastrous effects of this murderous policy and avoid rioting on British streets!

BRITISH WORKING CLASS SOLIDARITY: Why the Grenfell Survivors Should Refuse Theresa May’s Luxury Flats!

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Theresa May’s Tory government is continuing to privatise the NHS and Welfare State and is desperate to keep Jeremy Corbyn’s Socialism out of power! Theresa May apologised in Parliament today for a failure by the State (both nationally and locally) with regards to the Grenfell tragedy – saying that the survivors will now be re-housed in a ‘local’ luxury block of flats (that are awaiting purchase by millionaires) – but she has not apologised for those British Working Class who have suffered and died since 2010 due to Tory (and LibDem) Austerity – or stated that she will replace or re-build the NHS and Welfare State! The Tories (and the big businesses they represent) are terrified of the British Working Class that is demanding Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister and a switch back to Socialism as national policy. Yes – the survivors of Grenfell get offered luxury flats (good for them!) but the rest of the country continues to suffer in squalor and poverty with no access to healthcare or benefits! The Tories are privileging a very few members of the British Working Class – whilst continuing to impoverish the vast majority forever – with education being next for the Tory austerity-chop! Theresa May must resign and ‘Austerity’ must immediately stop and be reversed! The British Working Class must stand together and not be drawn into factionalism by the Tories offering glittering baubles for the few at the detriment (and expense) of the many (after-all, more luxury flats can be built for the privileged, but an NHS or Welfare State are not that easy to replace!. In reality, the Grenfell survivors should act in solidarity with the broader British Working Class and ‘refuse’ the luxury flats – and instead demand the END to AUSTERITY, the RESIGNATION of Theresa May, and the inauguration of Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister. This how true SOLIDARITY works, and how PEOPLE POWER can bring down unpopular and unwanted governments!

The Cost of Labour’s Failure

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

I was hoping for an emphatic Labour Party victory in the recent UK General Election, but was also wary of a complete Labour defeat generated by Working Class voter apathy. What actually happened was something between the two. Labour did not win – plain and simple – but it did inflict a material and moral defeat on the Tories – with the Tories losing 12 Parliamentary seats, and Labour gaining 31 Parliamentary seats. The Tories also lost their slim Parliamentary majority – but have held-on to power simply because more people voted for them in the General Election (around 13.5 million) throughout the country, as compared with Labour’s approximate 12.5 million voters. This Labour Party defeat is being presented, not without good cause, as a ‘victory’ for Jeremy Corbyn who secured the second highest ‘swing’ in history to Labour of 9.6% of the electorate (only Clement Atlee scored more with 10.4% in 1945). However, the fact remains that Labour lost the 2017 General Election and this has allowed Theresa May to aggressively push ahead with the privatisation of the NHS, and the dismantling of the Welfare State in a much accelerated format (without having to hide the true nature of the policy). Theresa May has been able to do this because she admitted in the run-up to the recent General Election, that she favoured NHS privatisation and Welfare reform, and if she ‘won’ the election, she would take this as a mandate from the British people to proceed. Well, she certainty did not ‘lose’ the General Election, and she has resolutely refused to resign and make way for Jeremy Corbyn, or to call a new election.  The naturally bias right-wing British media has colluded with her decision, and has not exerted anything like the pressure on May as it exerted upon Gordon Brown in 2009-2010, or Jeremy Corbyn to quit after he recently became Labour Leader. The reason for this, is that the middle class powers that be in the UK, do not want a ‘Socialist’ Labour government in power, and will do anything to sustain May and her anti-Socialist agenda. On June 9th, 2017, I listened to the radio early in the morning, to hear that the Tories had suffered serious electoral set-backs, but that Labour had not won the General Election. One Labour Party insider stated clearly that regardless of the ‘Corbyn Effect’ and the Labour ‘swing’, the result was a ‘disaster’ for the country, as the Labour Party had failed to take power. This is the correct dialectical assessment – even if all of Jeremy Corbyn’s achievements are taken into account. Tory ‘Austerity’ has not been stopped, but has rather been ‘legitimised’ by this Labour failure. Hospitals continue to close, benefits continue to disappear, food-banks continue to expand, homelessness increases, death due to inadequate NHS treatment continue to increase, religious bigotry continues to dominate, vulnerable people continue to suffer, and people living in dilapidated Council buildings continue die, and so on, and so forth. A Tory MP talking on George Galloway’s TalkRadio programme recently, stated clearly that Theresa May will continue to hold-on to power by any means necessary to keep the ‘Socialist’ Jeremy Corbyn from being Prime Minister. In this regard, Theresa May is doing the bidding of Rupert Murdoch and the corporation bosses he serves, who think it an abomination to actually pay their legally demanded taxes. Another issue is whether the Labour Party can sustain the ‘momentum’ of the ‘Corbyn Effect’ as the days roll into weeks and months since the General Election, and Theresa May continues to act as Prime Minister, and cling-on to power. There is a very real danger that the bias media may start to present her desperation as a demonstration of true ‘bulldog spirit’, as comparisons with the odious Winston Churchill start to be rolled-out!

Labour Resists but Odious Tories Hold Sutton & Cheam (9.6.2017)

Obviously the majority of voters in Sutton and Cheam are wealthy enough to afford private health insurance, and probably private unemployment cover. St Helier (NHS) hospital has been marked for closure for years now, its resources have been cut-back, its staff demoralised, and its over-all efficiency diminished to the point of endangering lives as its services are ‘sold-off’ piece-meal to private (greed-orientated) business interests. It is a reasonable assumption if the Tory and LibDem voter numbers are added together,  which amount to around 40,000 – with both of these parties representing variants of rightwing politics. In 2015, the National Health Action Party (NHAP) stood a candidate in Sutton and Cheam (an employee of St Helier Hospital), and yet he scored just over 400 votes! The Green Party stood in this election, and with no real cogent political agenda – other than an ecologically-led soft-Toryism – the Greens earned just over 800 votes. The Labour Party – and local Labour Candidate Bonnie Craven – was the only political party in the borough to resist the privatisation of the NHS and the dismantling of the Welfare State.

The View from China and the Impending Defeat of Bourgeois Labour

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Mainland Chinese language articles tend to speak politely and respectfully about Jeremy Corbyn (the grey-bearded old man), who is known to be a vegetarian, and care deeply about the well-being of British working class people, but is generally scathing about the bourgeois nature and direction of Labour Party itself. The Labour Party is very much viewed as a supporter of ‘capitalism’ and not a party of revolution, despite the fact that individual members of it have held Communistic and/or Socialistic viewpoints throughout its existence. However, Chinese commentators have also pointed-out that many truly revolutionary Labour Party members have either been ‘expelled’, or permanently side-lined from direct or active interaction with the electorate. As Jeremy Corbyn advocates an old style bourgeois Socialism that seeks to reform, but never to over-throw the capitalist system, his leadership appears doomed to failure, as his message is not getting through to the working class (that refuses to register to vote en mass), and is opposed by big business. The trans-national-corporations (TNC) will not allow an ‘old style’ Socialism to run the UK, because it will mean that their tax-burden will be increased to finance the Welfare System, the NHS, Education, Housing and Social Services, etc, whilst major industries would be ‘nationalised’ (to reduce costs to the general public) thus depriving the private business sector of huge profits. The British working class is notoriously apathetic (an attribute recognised by Karl Marx himself), and refuse to take part in revolutionary politics. The British working class , despite forming the majority of people in the UK, and being on the receiving end of all the suffering caused by Tory ‘Austerity’, refuses to mobilise and will not even participate in voting. The liberal democratic process, the Chinese narratives explain, exists to serve the class interests of the capitalist system, and therefore conspires to continuously disempower the workers. It is as if the British working class will not even ‘resist’ the exploitation imposed upon it. This is the product of hundreds of years of physical and psychological oppression imposed by the bourgeoisie upon the proletariat, to such an efficient extent that the British working class nolonger considers any other reality to be possible. Of course, even if the Tories were voted-out, the Labour Party is not a revolutionary party, and so the capitalist system would continue to function as usual. As matters stand, the polls suggests that the Tories will win the next election and cement their ‘Austerity’ policy as the new ‘norm’ for British capitalism.

London: Save Our NHS March (4.3.2017)

20170304_142827

20170304_143005

Despite the British people voting for ‘Brexit’ for the UK to leave the European Union (EU), the Tory government is continuing to ‘privatise’ the NHS.  This why a protest march was arranged with people gathering between 11am – 1pm – in Tavistock Square (near Russell Square Tube Station) – and marching to Parliament Square. This political activism saw tens of thousands of people from all backgrounds, and political affiliations, come together in London today, to collectively protest the Tory plans to shut-down the Socialist NHS – which since 1948 has delivered top-notch medical treatment free at the point of use – and sell-off all its assets to private medical insurance companies, and private healthcare corporations, many based in the USA. This means that ordinary people in the UK will have to take-out ‘private’ medical healthcare insurance to pay for their treatment, but the reality is that only the already fit, young, or very rich will be granted this ‘private’ health-cover, and all those who are injured, elderly, disabled or terminally ill, will be left with no cover because the ‘private’ health insurance companies view these masses of people as being a terrible financial burden and unacceptable ‘risk’ in the business of making ‘profit’ out of other people’s misery. As matters stand, the NHS is currently funded by National Insurance Contributions (a form of tax) which is spread over the entire British population. Since the time of Margaret Thatcher, even people receiving State Benefit pay tax, as the amount they receive is reduced at source. The problem is that the New Labour government introduced the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) which saw internal markets open within the NHS, and began the process of selling-off large chunks of the NHS to private companies unaccountable to the British people. In 2012, the Tory and LibDem Coalition effectively privatised the NHS (in accordance with EU directives), and removed the last of the Socialist guidelines that had governed the NHS since its inception. It is no longer a legal requirement for a GP or a NHS hospital to ‘treat’ a patient (now termed a ‘client’), or if treated, not given appropriate treatment. This change makes it easier for private healthcare firms to ‘buy’ parts of the NHS and run them into the ground for profit. These trends must be reversed, and to do this, the UK requires a Socialist Labour Party in power. Just as Margaret Thatcher changed the onus from ‘care’ to ‘cost’, a Socialist Labour Party must abolish the exploitative concept of ‘cost’ and return the NHS to a ‘caring’ ethos. Lastly, prior to 1948, only the Soviet Union had a fully comprehensive healthcare system delivering free treatment at the point of use. The British Labour government of 1945 was not without its faults, but it did emulate the Soviet model.

There was a substantial leftwing presence on this march, including Socialists, Communists, and elements of the Labour Party (which still possesses a Marxist presence that is generally well-hidden from the public eye). Although the political purpose of this march should (and does) take precedence over any and all personal hardships that we experience getting to, or participating in the march, as a family we would like to thank the many male and female Comrades who helped us carry our daughter up the 175 steps at Russell Square Tube Station – due to over-bearing crowds alighting the tube and trying to get out via the lifts or the stairs. As one of the lifts was broken, we decided to attempt the stairs which spiralled through a narrow corridor, and which saw many able-boded people stopping for breath at various points. Our push-chair contained our young daughter Kai-Lin, and had our various bags hanging from it. At various points, very kind people took it in-turns to help lift our push-chair and climb those long and winding stairs!  Throughout the entire process, Kai-Lin stayed asleep. When we finally reached day-light, we needed a minute or two to get our breath – and dodge the parasitic Socialist Workers Party (which always attempts to hijack popular protests without actually taking part in any march).
