By : Harry - Monday May 12, 2008
UK USED TO BE A FREE COUNTRY Thousands of UK residents have signed a petition against a law preventing photography and filming in certain public places. Yet this all turned out to be a misunderstanding, and no such law was proposed.

Friday May 9, 2008
By Damien McElroy, Foreign Affairs Correspondent British officials were today accused of turning a blind eye to an Iraqi woman’s complaints that she suffered sexual harassment while working in the UK Embassy in Baghdad. The unnamed woman was allegedly sacked last year after she refused to perform sexual favours for an employee of a private contractor that ran the embassy canteen. “I suffered this aggression under the British flag,” she said. “I felt like I had (...)

Solidarity with Grangemouth Workers !
By : pension - Monday April 28, 2008
Solidarity is proud to offer our 100% support to the oil refinery workers at Grangemouth. For the “crime” of refusing to accept the tearing up of their pension scheme they have been vilified by the Ineos management and sections of the press in Scotland. In a disgusting campaign the oil workers have been accused of “holding the country to ransom” and of being “hell bent on strike action.” In reality it is the Ineos Company led by billionaire James (...)

Tradesman show The proposal by Joe Carter of having a new type of universities league table, reminds me of going shopping. I have learnt from such excursions how a tradesman details all the features of the object of desire, in an effort to sell it to the customer. He or she lists, one by one, all the features to let you know that the object of desire is in reality what you really wanted already. I have spent many days just looking at and listening to tradesmen/showmen listing all the (...)

Round the crown
By : Salvatore Fiore - Wednesday April 2, 2008
The lastest opening of UCU (University and College Union) to more ’extreme views’ will not convince many people. UCU has suddenly become concerned with marketization of British education and is calling with a loud voice for an exchange of ideas. Indeed, it appears to be a well-directed drama in which many recognizable voices have suddenly raised concerns on the marketization of British education and its deleterious end as a commodified field which will saturate and decline with (...)

Europhobia and Where it’s Taking Us

Alf Garnett: Patron Saint of British Europhobes and Bigots This essay was written as a counterblast at the Europhobes on the UK 911 Truth Forum. As I’ve been away from this thread whilst dealing with the Europe issue elsewhere, I thought it would be a good idea to summarise what has been going on. It started with my publishing the European Left’s Athens Declaration in order that forum readers could be given an insight into an alternative Europe which they would otherwise miss (...)

Self-Serving

Each country has got its own Berlusconis, Blairs, Bushes or Popes. It is a kind of globalization thing and Blair may seem to have exaggerated recently in France whilst speaking about the current political situation. In reality he was just making another of his speeches on the "third-way" and that which he has really not been able to do; bring peace. Instead he has been able only to open discontent, the consequences of which he has sought to manage with repressive laws. Has the Blair era (...)

edward thompson and the growth of britain’s police state
By : Anon - Monday January 21, 2008

from CHIMES OF FREEDOM blog Dipping into the late Edward Thompson’s Writing by Candlelight it begins to become clear how Britain has become an embryonic police state without any serious opposition by the libertarian/left. It also becomes clear that the destruction of freedoms has come not from either that section of the population or from Marxist subversives but from the authoritarian tendencies of the British establishment itself. Thompson wrote of this trend to the police state (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
