I have largely kept my personal party politics out of this blog. But as many of you know I am running as the parliamentary candidate for the Green Party in Scarborough and Whitby. I hope you will forgive me this one post. If people think it out of place please just say so and I […]
Two quite different videos for you. First is a public talk I gave recently on the TTIP trade agreement and its Investor State Dispute Settlement ISDS. I have been giving this talk up and down the country for most of the last two years, updating it as events have unfolded. Most of what I say […]
For what little they might be worth here are a few thoughts about Greece. My great concern is not what happens if Syriza stick to their guns but what happens if they don’t. If Syriza backs down to Germany and fails to deliver what so many Greek people voted for, I fear people will, in […]
I think Friday saw a power-shift from the central banks to the global private banks. I think the global banks served notice that the Central bank plan of 1) reining in the risk-taking of the TBTF banks and 2) stimulating growth in the real economy is now dead in the water. There is a new plan. […]
Either everything’s already fixed or is being fixed as we speak by those clever people at the central banks and our oh-so-caring Leaders OR its a sham and and shambles. You decide. A first video blog. I just want to make it clear – I do say it in […]
At this point I would like to make it clear that just because I have suggested the Global Over Class are likely to have thought ahead to what they will need to achieve before the next crisis arrives and have outlined some of what I think their Manifesto might contain, does not mean I think […]
The present crisis is not yet over and yet we are already overdue for the next. In Part One I suggested that not only are the 1% well aware of this but that while they have been telling us how we must ‘save’ the present system and assuring us that any radical break with the […]
The present global financial ‘crisis’ began in 2007-8. It is not nearly over. And that simple fact is a problem. Not because of the life-choking misery it inflicts on the lives of millions who had no part in its creation, but because the chances of another crisis beginning before this one ends, is increasing. What […]
In 1854 a Mr John C. Cobden, published a book on the poverty and inequality of his time. I offer you these quotes from it with the suggestion that where he writes “aristocracy” you substitute “Bankers” or “the 1%” and where he writes “slaveholders” you substitute “debtholders”. Where he and I have written “England” subsitute […]
We are off on our first family holiday in five years. I am more excited than the kids. We will be gone a month and during that time almost entirely off the grid. Before we go I wanted to say thank you – to all of you who come to the blog to read and […]
