Comedians raise awareness of sewage dumping at Lake Windermere protest

Paul Whitehouse, Lee Mack and Steve Coogan at Lake Windermere: the water won’t be magically cleaned just because they joined a protest – that is up to the rest of us.

This Site would like to add its praise to that already heaped on household-name comedians Steve Coogan, Lee Mack and Paul Whitehouse (plus any others who haven’t been named by national media) for raising awareness of sewage pollution.

They joined a protest against United Utilities’ pollution of Lake Windermere, giving it a mass-media boost that put the message onto TV screens across the UK.

And they said – well, hear it for yourself. Here are Messrs Coogan and Mack on ITV’s Good Morning Britain:

And here’s Lee Mack on Channel 4 News. I include the tweet by Feargal Sharkey because the former pop musician turned environmental campaigner has himself done invaluable work in publicising this scandal:

One well-publicised protest won’t clean up our waterways overnight.

As you can tell from the clips, United Utilities doesn’t really care. It’s happy giving £300 million to shareholders this year, while devoting just one-fifteenth as much to cleaning up its act. That’s the wrong way around, but it is the way chosen by the UK’s right-wing governments since 1989 – both Tory and Labour, who privatised our water and sewage services and kept them that way.

If you care about the country you live in, you need to kick up a fuss about this. Complain to your water company – demand a refund! And get on to your MP about it too.

Sewage dumping brings disease. The creek near Environment Secretary Therese Coffey’s own constituency home is full of e.Coli – but she couldn’t care less. You have to make her care.

Are you going to follow the example of Coogan, Mack, Whitehouse and the others? They can’t do it by themselves.

Keir Starmer’s Labour is like an abusive partner. Here’s how

Open arms: Keir Starmer will probably welcome you to his events if you have done some door-knocking for him beforehand. But what will he then do for you?

Did you ever have a friend or romantic partner who always wanted you to do things for them, but never bothered to reciprocate?

I mention this because of the latest wheeze from Keir Starmer’s New New Labour:

“Labour is trialling a ‘Queue & Do’ system at the evening rally where attendees will have to sign up to a task – like knocking a certain number of doors – in exchange for their ticket.”

So basically you have to pay your way to get into the event by doing something for Starmer first.

And you don’t know in advance whether you’ll get anything worthwhile back in return.

Yup. Reminds me of a few gold-digger girlfriends from prehistory (Before Mrs Mike).

People who try to get you to do things for them without offering you anything more than a tiny part of their time in return are just using you.

Avoid.

‘Cancelled’ Young Labour rally is a huge success. Is this one part of the party we can still support?

Packed: the Young Labour rally that Keir Starmer’s Labour conference app falsely stated was cancelled. This is the way to beat liars like Starmer.

The antipathy shown by Keir Starmer, David Evans and their right-wing-dominated NEC toward Young Labour suggests that it is one of the few parts of the party that deserve to grow during their blighted reign.

According to the excellent Skwawkbox, Labour’s official conference app falsely announced that Young Labour’s “Rally for a Socialist Future” yesterday evening was “cancelled”; it wasn’t.

Instead, the event was packed with young socialists who heard speakers including Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell, Zarah Sultana, Nadia Whittome and representatives of the union Unite and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

And it was a huge success:

It seems to This Writer that Young Labour is one of the few parts of the Labour Party that is actually fulfilling its stated function as an organisation for democratic socialists.

As it represents a starting-point for people who will form the future heart of the Labour Party, CLPs should not only urge young people in their constituencies to join; they should actively find roles for Young Labour members as they mature – ultimately seeking to find Parliamentary candidates among them.

It’s a way of preventing Starmer and/or his successors from parachuting Tories in as candidates instead.

Also popular among the fringe events yesterday evening was a discussion between John McDonnell and former US Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who said left-wing Labour should challenge Starmer over his rejection of socialist policies.

According to the BBC,

Mr Sanders said what “the progressive movement” on the left was calling for was not “radical demands”, but it was time to put those who said no “on the defensive”.

“There is no reason why in the UK or the United States all workers should not be able to earn decent wages and have decent benefits,” he said.

“There is no reason all over the world [why] we cannot provide quality healthcare to all human beings as a right of citizenship.”

The senator added: “Those people who tell you you can’t do it, you ask them why, why can’t you do it? Because you are afraid to stand up to big money interests? That is not an acceptable reason.”

Mr Sanders said the approach would lead to a good outcome.

He concluded: “When you speak truth to people, they often respond in a positive way.”

He makes a good point.

And when you are speaking the truth in the face of an obvious lie – like the Starmer-run Labour app’s claim that the Young Labour rally had been cancelled – you have an immediate advantage.

Starmer’s supporters have voted to make Labour’s internal struggle a long, slow war of attrition, focusing on internal party politics while Boris Johnson and his Tories do whatever they like in the real world (and I use the word “real” advisedly). That has been their choice.

It should be the choice of socialists to call out their lies, put them under the spotlight and explain in the simplest possible terms why policies for everyone – upheld by honest people – are better.

Inside the campaign to support Jeremy Corbyn

Undaunted: He’sonce again, he’s got a sheer wall to climb but that has not stopped Jeremy Corbyn in the past.

One would imagine the supporters of Jeremy Corbyn were all rabid anti-Semites and extremists, judging from the behaviour of some Establishment stooges who should know better (including members of the current Labour leadership).

This could not be further from the truth, as a report on an online rally in support of Corbyn demonstrates. This Writer’s good brother, Beastrabban, attended (if that’s the right word for an online experience) the event and heard speakers including Diane Abbott, Jess Barnard, Howard Beckett, Sonali Bhattacharyya, Rivkah Brown, Richard Burgon, Deborah Hermanns, John McDonnell, Roger McKenzie, Barnaby Raine, Chardine Taylor Stone, and Jon Trickett.

Some of the speakers had personally experienced the racism of which Corbyn and his supporters are accused:

Jon Trickett is Jewish through his mother’s side, and suffered anti-Semitic abuse recently from a real Nazi.

But it is important to record that

they acknowledged that there was a problem with racism and anti-Semitism in the Labour party and society, and felt that it was growing, and needed to be fought.

This tallies with other information that has been revealed recently. It seems that, with increasing numbers of Jews relocating to Israel, anti-Jewish sentiment is rising in the European countries they are vacating, including the UK. Is this because there are fewer actual Jews around to provide tangible examples of the falsehood of the anti-Semites’ propaganda?

In the Labour leadership, of course, the anti-Corbyn sentiment was said to be motivated, not by a reaction against anti-Semitism, but against socialism – the very reason the Labour Party was formed:

Some speakers made it extremely clear that the anti-Semitism smears against Corbyn weren’t actually motivated by any concern about real Jew hatred, but were instead an attempt to stop the emergence of a genuine socialist Labour party. This was shown in a Torygraph article that day calling for Starmer to purge the party completely of Corbynism.

They made the point that what frightens the Tories and their supporters is that Labour has a membership of 500,000. The Labour party isn’t the leadership, it isn’t MPs, it’s the members.

They also pointed out that Corbyn’s problem was that no socialist could become a Labour MP during Blair and Brown’s tenure of power, and so the parliamentary MPs from this time, who have only been MPs for a few years, are naturally opposed to the [former] Labour leader.

That was clear from the moment Corbyn put his name on the Labour leadership election ballot. It opened a class divide within the Labour Party – something that should have been unthinkable in a party where everybody should be equal. Corbyn was considered to be a lower-class upstart with delusions of grandeur just for thinking that he could ever be admitted to the top table.

The result of that election, and the subsequent attempted coup in 2016, showed the elitists in the Parliamentary Labour Party that they had misjudged the membership – so it should be no surprise that, now they are back in control, they want to change party democracy to deny the majority of members any opportunity to elect leaders who actually want to bring about the changes for which the Labour Party was originally created.

People like Keir Starmer enjoy their power over the “little” people and want to keep it. They don’t want to give ordinary working people any more power over their own lives. Remember that, those Labour members who are left after the recent exodus, next time you take part in internal party elections.

There’s a link to a video of the event in the Beastrabban article (see below) so you can watch the whole event yourself.

I recommend that you do; it may dispel any disinformation that you have heard about Corbyn, his supporters and their beliefs.

Online rally to defend Corbyn against Starmer suspension: TONIGHT (October 30) 7pm

This is from that much-maligned organisation, Momentum – who at least seem to be doing something to protect Labour Party democracy:

“This is a pivotal moment for the Labour Party and the future of our movement. The suspension of Jeremy Corbyn yesterday was a factional attack that has undermined the fight against antisemitism.

“Join leading socialists from across our movement in an online rally at 7pm tonight and hear how we defend Corbyn, and build a socialist, anti-racist movement.

“Click here to join the online rally at 7pm. 

Speakers include Diane Abbott, John McDonnell, Richard Burgon, Jon Trickett, Roger McKenzie, Howard Beckett, Rivkah Brown, Barnaby Raine, Jess Barnard, Chardine Taylor Stone, Sonali Bhattacharyya and Deborah Hermanns.

“There are no quick fixes, but there are many things we can do to build a movement and shape the future of our party.

“That’s what Jeremy will be doing and that’s what we must do.”

Blue Peter – better on racism than BBC News?

Raising their arms? It looks like a Nazi salute to everyone who can see.

When is a Nazi salute not a Nazi salute? When it’s reported on the BBC!

Seriously: this is how BBC news was reporting the Nazi salutes we all saw at the far-right rally in London on Saturday (June 13) –

The rally – which crossed the line into rioting very early in the proceedings – was held to oppose a peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstration planned for that day, but BLM organisers cancelled their event because they can recognise a gang of ugly, thugly racists when they see it.

It’s a shame the BBC can’t – especially as the Corporation’s child-facing arms have been so good at addressing the issue of racism for our younger citizens. Consider this, from the Blue Peter presenters…

… and this, broadcast on CBeebies:

https://twitter.com/SophiaCannon/status/1271550571145768972

But when it came to actual news reports of actual racists, actually being violent, Auntie lost her nerve completely:

And we can’t help but note that this behaviour is at odds with the Beeb’s treatment of left-wing protestors, or even the anti-racists of Black Lives Matter:

What’s the matter, BBC news editors? Are you frightened of a few beer-bellied, tattooed twits?

Jeremy Corbyn’s speech at the TUC New Deal rally

This is just a representative image. If you want to see how Mr Corbyn appeared at the rally, watch the video.

He said all the right things – didn’t he?

Let’s have your opinions.

The sound on the following video is really good until around 10 minutes in – then it drops out, but can still be heard (just about). See how you get on with it.

Only 250? Anti-Semitism demo against Labour flops with tiny attendance – and dodgy speeches

Maureen Lipman: You’d think a performer of her standing would know the danger in ill-advised words.

“Who’ll go?” That’s what This Writer asked yesterday (April 7). The answer, we now know, is: Practically nobody:

Hundreds of protesters gathered in the rain outside Labour’s London headquarters today for a demo against anti-Semitism.

There were shouts of “Corbyn out”, “racists” and “shame”, and boos among the crowd of around 250 people when speakers named the Labour leader.

The protest was called by the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, which has regularly criticised Mr Corbyn’s approach.

Brilliant. 250 misinformed sheeple, standing outside empty offices, howling lies about one of the strongest advocates against racism of any kind (including anti-Semitism) that the UK has.

I also asked if Gideon Falter, chairman of the CAA, would take the right message from a poorly-attended event – that his organisation’s lies about Mr Corbyn, and about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, were falling on deaf ears.

It seems he did not:

https://twitter.com/LabourAW/status/983011769303040000

And what are we to make of Maureen Lipman?

She stood next to Mr Falter, to speak against the Labour Party – but brought instant ridicule on herself by attacking Ed Miliband, the party’s previous leader and a man of very clear Jewish descent:

“Everything we’ve heard today points to the fact that we have an anti-Semite as the head of the British Labour Party,” she said.

In that case, everything that was said at the event was slander, because Mr Corbyn is accepted by rational people as the antithesis of an anti-Semite. Indeed, as David Rosenberg states, above, Mr Corbyn is “one of the most longstanding opponents of all racism including anti-Semitism”.

I wish Mr Corbyn would take legal action against Ms Lipman and the CAA for their outrageous lies. Mr Falter was standing right next to her and failed to correct the claim.

But he’s far too clever to be drawn in.

The CAA’s attack on Labour was a false-flag attempt to rid the UK of the best opposition to Theresa May’s diabolical Conservative government. It was clever to attack Jeremy Corbyn on the basis of a problem that everybody accepts exists in many organisations, but the claims of the organisation and its allies have stretched credibility too far and they have lost the confidence of the public.

Why give them the oxygen of publicity when their argument is dead?

Bristolians rise against austerity with ‘Fund our city!’ call

On the march: The Rally for Bristol.

As I write this, the people of Bristol are staging a rally against austerity-driven Tory cuts to funding and services for their city.

The event was called by city mayor Marvin Rees – and This Writer (a former Bristolian) agrees with his reasons.

Only today, I had to write about funding cuts to another local authority that have endangered Women’s Aid services there – putting lives at risk.

Tories don’t care. They think money is more important than human lives.

The event’s Facebook page states:

“Mayor Marvin Rees has called a march and rally on Saturday September 9th … to demand the Conservative government gives Bristol and other cities the funding we need for our public services and stops the cuts that are damaging the lives of so many.

“The general election and polls since have shown that austerity is now opposed by the great majority of the public. But despite its weak position this government is handing £70 billion to the wealthy in tax breaks over five years, even as it burdens Bristol City Council with cuts to bare-bones essential services totalling £104 million (10% cut each year).

“On September 9th, three days before the Mayor is set to lobby ministers at Westminster, let’s send a powerful message by marching in our thousands in Bristol and other cities: we won’t take any more cuts – not to our social care and NHS, our children’s services, our housing, our libraries, our arts, our community centres, our parks, our schools, our children’s crossing patrols…

“We’ve had enough of closures, privatisation and job losses, and we’re uniting – as workers, service users and citizens – to fight all the way for the investment we need in the public services and the living standards of our communities!”

Tory tweeter who compared Corbyn event with Nazi rallies is owned by anonymous Labour spokesperson

This is the way to put down a mouthy Tory keyboard warrior. Check out the Labour spokesman’s comment at the end of this extract:

A Conservative councillor has come under fire for a Twitter comment in which he compared the huge turnout at Jeremy Corbyn’s rallies with Nazi gatherings under Hitler.

Cllr Chris Steward, a former City of York Council leader, has been criticised, with a call for him to apologise, after he wrote the comment about popular rallies held by the Labour leader.

“You can judge mass attendance at rallies as the proof of a great leader if you want, I will judge their views,” he tweeted, alongside an image of a Nazi gathering.

A Labour spokesman [said]: “The fact that this Tory councillor thinks this is the appropriate reaction to a politician from another party being listened to, speaks volumes about why his party is not.”
