offsite link This is Why Electricity Costs Twice as Much in Britain as in the USA Fri Jul 19, 2024 07:00 | Dr John Fernley
There's a reason that electricity costs twice as much in Britain as in the USA, says Dr. John Fernley. It's because of brainless plans like Ed Miliband's to power us with a sun that doesn't shine when we need it most.

The problem with heat pumps is they're fundamentally uneconomic, and no amount of shifting the costs around can hide that, says Andrew Montford. So beware the Government's latest bait-and-switch ruse to get you to buy one.

"I believe that spies, the security services, in the world generally, are becoming increasingly powerful and that our civil liberties are being eroded." Justin Keating.
This article is an attempt to put flesh on those bones. I attempt to list some of those agencies active in ireland, to list some of the powers they can and do use to make life difficult for those that cross them and to look at some of the technology they have access to. I put in two appendices too that hopefully show the controlling role of those agencies in Irish paramilitary groups and some international comparisons to this type of intelligence agency support for 'terrorist' groups that they are ostensibly opposing.

The French have excelled. People started reading books, thinking, and voting.

The Dutch followed on.

What will happen in ireland? Will there be another No vote election not be acceptable to Govt . Let us recall, the 'machinery' kicked in another strategic vote....and apathy and people beckoned to the call of the Master!!!

Will it be the same this time....Do we really need to waste money on holding an 'Election' as a form of token gesture.

Where are the Watchdogs? Who has the teeth? Why aren't Corrupt Practices not made a criminal offence? What about the scandalous loopholes in those who pay tax and more importantly the Equitable Amount.

A new statistical analysis published on 31 March indicates that the official vote tallies in the presidential election of November 2004 may have been altered in favour of George Bush. The authors of the analysis demand a thorough investigation of the discrepancies between exit polls, which predicted that John Kerry would win by a margin of 3% of the popular vote, and official vote tallies, which awarded Bush the victory by a margin of 2.5%.

Americans are not taking the presidential election fraud of November 2004 lying down. Members of a grassroots pro-democracy movement are organising teach-ins, house parties and conferences to educate themselves about how election fraud is committed and how to combat it.

Must-see video clips of speakers at the teach-in held in Santa Monica on 26 February.

More information about the organisation of teach-ins, including more links to video materials. read full story / add a comment

President Bush met President Chirac today...there is an urgent need to resolve disagreements and form strategies for peaceful resolutions worldwide.

Within months, the citizens of ireland review and vote on their choice for the EU constitution.

Perhaps it is time to review our own...in the light of the Peace Process.

Surely: our focus ought to be corrupt practices North and South but not make alleged criminality, at the last hurdle towards the conclusion of the Peace Process. The Gardai exist as do the PSNI let them seek out all illegal practices irrespective of origin and act with Due Process.

Justice delayed is Justice Denied.

The CAB will not apparently being receiving early pensions. Instead, their skills refined through the 1980's/90's scandals of tax evasion will now prove refined to the degree that we may have an effective, speedy system of tribunals with prompt delivery to the Justice system

However, in the midst of all this exciting blame festering news let us not forget the important issues. We need to review children, we need to consider restorative justice, we need to appoint educational psychologists in our schools, we need Ethics established as a mind set of those entering the work environment, government etc. read full story / add a comment

Microfinance is about giving small loans (generally upto 5000€) with as little interest as possible (ought to be none) to poor people so they can set up commercial or agricultural concerns.
It's very important for 3rd world agriculture and has played a pivotal role in conflict resolutions in the Balkans and Africa.
It's not quite "anti-capitalism", rather it is one of the tools of the system as it exists which can be better used to alleviate in the short term the suffering and under-development of the majority of humanity. read full story / add a comment

I am formally launching my campaign to stand in the North Inner City Ward as an Independent Socialist.
Born in the North Inner City, where I have lived - and struggled - for most of my forty-seven years, I will continue to fight for my community and the working class in the battles ahead against the capitalist system. In a time of unprecedented wealth, the divide between the rich and the poor has widened even further, pushing people even more to the margins and the growing 'underclass'. read full story / add a comment

Big issue today.
Help the 246,000,000 children under 14 years of age who daily compete with the workers of ireland who can't go protesting
to earn less than an average of 40cents.
Eurocents at that!

Barcelona Forum 2004 has been declared open, and now we all over have the God Given Right blessèd by the King of Spain to tell you all how to sort out your problems.

The conflict is at centre stage of world politics. Workers and youth across the world watch events in Iraq in horror. As well as marking international workers’ day, this year’s May Day will see protests against the imperialist occupation of Iraq. read full story / add a comment
