UK General Election 2017

Labour opposes a second Scottish independence referendum. It is unwanted and unnecessary, and we will campaign tirelessly to ensure Scotland remains part of the UK. Independence would lead to turbo-charged austerity for Scottish families. The Scottish Parliament will receive a huge funding increase from our policies, and massive numbers of Scots will benefit from our plans in areas reserved to Westminster. We will establish a Scottish Investment Bank, with £20 billion of funds available to local projects and Scotland’s small businesses, creating work and stimulating the economy. We will set up an inquiry into blacklisting and will urge the Scottish Government to hold an inquiry into the actions of Scottish police during the miners’ strike.


And that's THAT.


You're a little late, I'm already torn

The Liberal Democrats have denied claims that their party leader is opposed to abortion after an old interview emerged in which he said the medical procedure was “too widely available”.
Tim Farron, who is a practising Christian, spoke to a Salvation Army publication in 2007 in which he said the medical procedure was “wrong”.
“Take the issue of abortion. Personally I wish I could argue it away. Abortion is wrong,” he told the publication, unearthed by the Guardian newspaper.

In the interview Mr Farron went on to say that abortion was “wrong at any time” and that it was “too widely available” and needed “tighter restrictions”.
Asked about the comments on Twitter he said the publication was “not a publication I’ve ever heard of or read or seen”.
A spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats said Mr Farron had actually always been pro-choice and would not discuss the interview in question.
“Tim’s view is that he is pro-choice and abortion should be safe and legal, that is what he believes,” the spokesperson said.
However Mr Farron’s Lib Dem colleague Ed Davey took a different line, claiming that his party leader had changed his mind.
“Tim has made very clear he has changed his mind,” Sir Ed told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
“He's made it clear that he is pro-choice and the Liberal Democrats believe that women should have the right to choose.”
The row over abortion comes after Mr Farron’s views on gay rights came under scrutiny.
The Lib Dem leader repeatedly refused to answer whether he believed gay sex was a sin, then later said he did not believe it was.

Nibbling thru this now




WIDENING OWNERSHIP OF OUR ECONOMY Britain is a long-established democracy. But the distribution of ownership of the country’s economy means that decisions about our economy are often made by a narrow elite. More democratic ownership structures would help our economy deliver for the many and lead to a fairer distribution of wealth. In government, Labour would give more people a stake – and a say – in our economy by doubling the size of the co-operative sector and introducing a “right to own,” making employees the buyer of first refusal when the company they work for is up for sale. We will act to ‘insource’ our public and local council services as preferred providers. 0any basic goods and services have been taken out of democratic control through privatisation. This has often led to higher prices and poorer quality, as prices are raised to pay out dividends. For example, water bills have increased 40 per cent since privatisation, and our private energy providers overcharged customers by £2 billion in 2015. In private hands, 5oyal 0ail has increased stamp and parcel charges, and failed to meet its customer service obligations, while its owners trade shares at significant profit. The Conservative Government’s privatisation of Royal 0ail was a historic mistake, selling off another national asset on the cheap. Across the world, countries are taking public utilities back into public ownership. Labour will learn from these experiences and bring key utilities back into public ownership to deliver lower prices, more accountability and a more sustainable economy. We will: • Bring private rail companies back into public ownership as their franchises expire. • Regain control of energy supply networks through the alteration of operator license conditions, and transition to a publicly owned, decentralised energy system. • Replace our dysfunctional water system with a network of regional publicly-owned water companies. • Reverse the privatisation of Royal 0ail at the earliest opportunity. Public ownership will benefit consumers, ensuring that their interests are put first and that there is democratic accountability for the service.

Labour offers fair rules and
reasonable management of
migration. In trade negotiations
our priorities favour growth,
jobs and prosperity. We make no
apologies for putting these aims
before bogus immigration targets

Support for kirk broadfoot against republican scum

May 18 at 7:13am · g_kf1vXYV_O.png

Think before voting.

Next time your in town have a look around, did you notice the boots chemist, the Argos, the McDonald's, perhaps the 3 year old child, excited, clutching his happy meal, not sure what toy was inside the bag. In the other hand he holds a mothers day card.

Did you notice anyone placing two parcels inside the bins 100 yards apart.

You may not recall but the scene I describe was Warrington, England 26th Feb 1993. Both parcels were explosive devices and were strategically placed by the IRA so that after the First exploded woman and children would run towards the second bomb.

The first bomb killed 3 year old Jonathan Ball. The blast wave and shrapnel ripped his tiny body to pieces. Both devices had been placed in cast iron bins to maximise the damage, moving away from the seat of the explosion the shrapnel ripped of chunks of flesh, muscle and limbs.

For the past 40 years Jeremy Corbyn has actively supported the IRA. Demonstrating at rallies in favour of these vile cowardice killers.

Jeremy Corbyn, as secretary of the editorial board of hard left magazine Labour Briefing, published a front page article praising the Brighton bombing. The same edition of the magazine, for December 1984, carried a reader’s letter praising the “audacity” of the IRA attack and stating: “What do you call four dead Tories? A start.”

Jeremy Corbyn also demonstrated outside the Royal Courts of Justice in support of the Brighton bomber.

Jeremy Corbyn has been asked repeatedly to condemn the actions of the IRA, he has refused on every occasion.
