Civil servants will be banned from helping Brexit ministers, Cameron says - Politics live | Politics | The Guardian
He put Brexit on the table because it was popular and feared to lose votes to UKIP. Opportunist. Career Politician. Needs a script. And now is changing the script in order not to lose the plot. The public voting yes. // David Cameron has made it clear that civil servants will not be allowed to help ministers who want to make the case for Britain leaving the European Union. He set this out in a letter listing four rules that will apply to ministers who want to campaign for Brexit. [...] [ and makes clear what his cabinet and peers can vote on ] Ministers will only be free to dissent on the issue of staying in the EU or leaving. [...] Ministers who speak from the frontbench will be expected to support government policy. But “we need to be flexible and apply common sense”, Cameron said. [...] This implies that Outist ministers will not be allowed to make the case for leaving the EU from the Despatch Box. [ Meaning his Brexit-Op is a dickless stunt. ]

Simon Hix on the election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new leader of the Labour Party - YouTube
Movement (Bobble Head of our time that captured imagination of disenfranchised part of society which became disengaged with Politics because they had no voice and no impact and no shared views) - vs - [Labour] Party (something babyboomers and pensioners could voted for (if) it is properly framed, spun, communicated over and over again that they've sold out their kids and grand children for their own gain and capture of wealth and have to change course. because their kids and grand children are on a backfoot very much, already. and can not take guaranteed the opportunities and social and capital luxuries babyboomers, post-war gen (pensioners) have enjoyed and continue to enjoy. that they have to give up some of their pie).

What now for Jeremy Corbyn? - BBC News
His opponents outside the party won't let him forget his past associations - reaching out to Irish Republicans and vocal opponents of Israel - peacemaking in his view, unacceptable to others. That, combined with his economic views, out of step with the mainstream, means for most Conservatives his success is a political gift. They believe his election is a chance, not just to poke fun week after week, at an accidental leader, but to maim Labour for a generation. And his election expresses a fundamental truth - the least palatable for Labour at Westminster. The party's core was unable to offer an idea, or a personality attractive enough to inspire or convince. What was, for them, an uncomfortable fantasy is now real. [...] Could that powerful niche ever expand to become a true national movement capable of winning a general election? That really would be breaking the rules.

UK businesses should highlight upsides of staying in the EU, says pressure group | Business | The Guardian
Rudd was responding to a report in the Financial Times (paywall) suggesting that David Cameron and his advisers are urging business leaders not to speak out in favour of the country remaining in the EU for fear they will damage the prime minister’s sensitive negotiations. [ // in the office for the sake of being in office ] [...] However, the prime minister’s team is concerned that if business speaks up in favour of remaining in the EU, it could hamper the renegotiation process. Sajid Javid, the business secretary, has already rebuked the CBI for its enthusiastic stance. Mathew Elliott, the head of Business for Britain and the founder and former chief executive of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, is also set to launch a business no campaign within the next few weeks, so yes campaigners are reluctant to give him an open field. [ not very democratic ]

"We are all in this together." << ya right .... /// "They see benefit fraudsters brought before the courts and small firms harangued by the tax man for modest VAT bills while giant firms and high net worth individuals know it's unlikely they'll be prosecuted for not paying all their taxes.

Along with “relentless” targets, huge caseloads, and less time to spend with individual claimants, she lists the increasing complexity of the system including the many and very complicated forms that needed to be filled in and problems with the fitness to work test administered by Atos. “It used to feel like we were doing something for clients, now it was [doing something] to them,” she says.

Monitor - Nationalistische Kleingeister So viel 19. Jahrhundert...
Klar: Wohlstandsversprechen allein werden es nicht richten. Erst wenn die Benachteiligten spüren, dass sie aufschließen können und wenn wir Profiteure wirklich bereit sind zu teilen, wird der europäische Gedanke die nationalistischen Kleingeister wieder in ihre Flaschen zurück drängen. Ein frommer Wunsch? Mag sein. Aber was wäre die Alternative? + !!! + Jon Snow from Channel4 in Response to apparent NO Vote Campaign Win - "The scale of YES and NO participation in Scotland's referendum sends a powerful message to westminster: Address the UK's democratic deficit."

[...] The election has delivered a big blow to the political establishment in Europe - the establishment that pursued austerity and bank bailouts, at great cost to millions of ordinary voters." [...] "Martin Schulz, the former Socialist president of the European Parliament - said of the FN victory: "It's a bad day for the European Union, when a party with a racist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic programme gets 25% of the vote."
