Labour don't support labour...time for a rebrand?
at 14:05 26 Jun 2022

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/26/labour-heathrow-airline-staff-p

Lammy was asked if he supported the BA check-in staff at Heathrow who have voted go to on strike over management’s refusal to reverse the 10% pay cut imposed during the pandemic.

“Many of us might want a rise of 10%,” Lammy said. “In truth, most people understand it’s unlikely that you’re going to get that.”

So, too much to ask to have a pay cut reinstated and 'fit to govern' means protecting the interests of shareholders over those of the working class. We have no meaningful choices in British politics.

Surely Johnson and the EU can manage that again!
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jun/26/timid-west-ukraine-line-in

"Fear corrodes the will to act, even though rampant price inflation imperils their national interest. Soon after the blockade began, Lithuania, bravely punching above its weight, proposed a naval “coalition of the willing”, preferably under UN authority, to escort Ukrainian grain carriers past Russian warships from Odesa to the Bosphorus. It’s an entirely reasonable idea.

But it hasn’t happened – mainly because Biden disproportionately fears direct Nato-Russia confrontation, because the UN security council is paralysed, and because Macron and Scholz privately oppose it. The Paris-Berlin dynamic duo, AKA the two stooges, still believe they can talk their way out of trouble by pressing Kyiv to give ground and making nice with a monster."

Definitely not positioning himself as a leader in waiting!

Burnham adds: “My starter for10 would be: good housing as a human right in UK law and a major council housebuilding programme to make it real; a higher basic minimum income for all and the end to insecure employment; social care on NHS terms and a substantial increase in mental health spending: and the re-nationalisation of rail and re-regulation of bus services.

“Whatever the precise policy programme, the enormity of the change needed can’t be denied and will require consensus and political foundations to sustain it for a generation or more.”

Labour policy is not to support PR for Westminster elections....."

What is more inflationary?
at 08:45 20 Jun 2022

Limitless QE for banks and then the comfortably off (likely with savings) during a pandemic or an extra 10 per cent for those on wages of say £10 to £15/hour during a cost of living crisis.
Makes you wonder who has really been "holding the country to ransom!"

Wouldn't want to be seen supporting a demonstration about the cost of living crisis now would he. Perhaps he's waiting to back some striking workers next week though or is he just doing everything possible to not be Corbyn and busy at home wrapping himself in Union Jacks?

Each track is poetry in motion.

Oh when we realize, we have only to dive, then we're out of here (oh, oh, oh)
We're just skating on the surface (oh, oh, oh)
We have only to click our fingers, and we'll disappear (oh, oh, oh)
We're just skating on the surface (oh, oh, oh)

Dull eyes, trying to pull you through the ice (oh, oh, oh)
Being drawn to the ledge (oh, oh, oh)
When we realize that we are broken, nothing mends (oh, oh, oh)
We can drop under the surface, ooh

When we realize we are merely held in suspension (oh, oh, oh)
Till someone comes along and shakes us (oh, oh, oh)
As the pattern lines cross our fingers like a web (oh, oh, oh)
Do we die upon the surface? (oh, oh, oh)

Dull eyes, trying to pull you through the ice
Being drawn to a ledge (oh, oh, oh)
When we realize that we are broken, nothing mends
We can drop under the surface, ooh

Average weekly cost of living...£587.
at 07:27 10 Jun 2022

Add about £100 to that if you are in the private rented sector.
https://www.nimblefins.co.uk/average-uk-household-budget#nogo

So that requires a wage of £14.675/hour (40 hour week) just to tread water. Just whatever you do, don't think of asking for a proper minimum wage or pay increase.
