When Politics Is This Broken It’s Time To Get Out In The Fucking Streets – Starting Tomorrow, 3pm Conservative HQ

Johnny Void here urges people to join a demonstration against Tory Central Office today, organised by London Black Revs.

He argues that after the re-election yesterday of David Cameron’s Tories, after only 20 per cent of the British public voted for them, leaves mass demonstrations as the only alternative. The first past the post voting system means that the rich will always stay in power, while the Labour party has just seen the Blairites re-emerge, trying to argue that Labour should move further to the Right. That’s definitely the wrong direction, as the victory of the SNP showed that what actually catches votes is a reversal of Tory anti-welfare, privatisation policies.

Mr Void presents the case that the only effective opposition now comes from the victims of austerity – the poor, the disabled, the students, tenants and benefit claimants.

The kind of people, in other words, who formed the Podemos movement in Spain.

I hope that eventually the Labour party is able to muster some kind of resistance to Neo-Liberalism, however, small. But in the meantime I think the country should show that we are not taking Cameron’s putative victory, or his victimisation of the poor, weak and marginalised lying down. He’s in, but we should make him fight every step of the way.

!No Pasaran!

fuck-rich1If yesterday’s election showed anything it is that most people do not want a Tory government.  Just 20% of the public voted Tory – the same proportion of the population the Office for National Statistics estimates have a personal wealth of over £600,000.  The rich are in charge despite what the rest of us want.  As usual.

No matter what might have happened yesterday the rich would still be in charge.  The UK’s electoral system has been designed over hundreds of years to ensure precisely that.  In Scotland the whole country can vote on mass to reject both of the main political parties and it doesn’t make a blind bit of fucking difference.  A million people can vote Green and nearly four million UKIP and nothing will change.  Although the UKIP thing is pretty funny.  Bye Nigel.

Already some in the Labour Party want to lurch even further to the…

    You missed a huge part of the welfare bill, pensioners, who face NIL STATE PENSION from 2016 and left to Work til you die or starve if you can’t.

    See all the pension changes that leave men and women with nothing at end of my petition, in my Why is this important secton, at:

    https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/state-pension-at-60-now

    You might care to widely share my petition, and sign it even if you are far off pension age, as this is the end of the state pension, which for many is their sole pension provision, from poverty or from works and private pensions hit by SERPs opt out and by firms going bust.

    Half of the over 60s are within the working poor, by the raised retirement age, and 40 per cent of the over 50s are disabled / chronic sick.

    Nil benefit, nil state pension, low waged or no waged, with Universal Credit depriving Pension Credit. The over 60s will not be able to cope with the cruel Jobcentres, with less rights to toilets, water, tea and overal rights than an alleged offender in a police station or a convicted prisoner.
