Ken Clarke: Tories had deal with Rupert Murdoch for 2010 election | Politics | The Guardian
David Cameron may have done “some sort of a deal” with Rupert Murdoch to win the Sun’s support for the Conservatives in the 2010 general election, Ken Clarke, the former justice secretary, has claimed.

“Quite how David Cameron got the Sun out of the hands of Gordon Brown I shall never know,” Clarke said. “Rupert would never let Tony [Blair – Brown’s predecessor] down because Tony had backed the Iraq war. Maybe it was some sort of a deal. David would not tell me what it was. Suddenly we got the Murdoch empire on our side.”

No one can save the Tories | British politics | For Europe, Against the EU | Politics | spiked
The talk of May doing a Michael Howard, the nadir of the Tories previous electoral irrelevance who allowed the space for the Cameroons to emerge, misses the point. PR man Cameron may have been a hollow technocrat, but at least he at least had a strategy: turning the Conservatives into New Labour. The Tories now have neither a play nor principle in mind. Everywhere you look you see a party bereft of vision. [...] The last few weeks of broadsheet tittle-tattle and political melodrama has only confirmed that the Tory Party has no idea what it stands for or who it represents. It’s a relic of the last century, a zombie party. Theresa May, the ‘dead woman walking’ in No10, is precisely the kind of leader it deserves. &! http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/may-the-leader-the-technocrat-party-deserves/20392#.WdwbJ1uPJPU &! http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/whats-the-point-of-the-tories/20384#.WdwbI1uPJPU

IFS: Growth in UK living standards worst in 60 years | Business | The Guardian
The Institute for Financial Studies is predicting that households will be almost 20% worse off by 2021 - IFS calculations show that average household incomes will be 18% lower in 2021-22 than could have been reasonably expected before the financial crisis in 2007-08 - “One of the biggest drivers of the rise in child poverty is policy choices, which is why it is essential that the prime minister and chancellor use the upcoming budget to put in place measures to stop this happening. An excellent start would be to ensure families can keep more of their earnings under the universal credit.”

Michael Gove the 'Lord Macbeth' of the Commons, says Alex Salmond (From Herald Scotland)
Alex Salmond has mocked the leadership divisions plaguing Labour and the Conservatives by calling for MPs to spend a week debating "political backstabbing".

The former first minister of Scotland described Labour MPs as "rank amateurs" in their attempts to dislodge Jeremy Corbyn when compared with Michael Gove's bid to become the next Tory prime minister.

Mr Salmond labelled Justice Secretary Mr Gove as "Lord Macbeth" for having "dispatched" Prime Minister David Cameron before knocking Boris Johnson out of the Tory leadership race.

Polit-Chaos auf der Insel - Labour-Chef kämpft um seinen Job

Wer glaubt, die EU sei im Eimer, der sollte heute zur Beruhigung seiner Nerven nach Großbritannien schauen. Dort herrscht das eigentliche politische Chaos. Die Schotten wollen das Referendum nicht akzeptieren, und bei Labour bahnt sich ein Putsch an. Parteiboss Jeremy Corbyn wird von etlichen Parteigranden zum Rücktritt gedrängt. Sie werfen ihm wahlweise vor, nicht genug oder zu viel für den EU-Verbleib Großbritanniens getrommelt zu haben. Generell steckt dahinter wohl vor allem die Angst, mit dem wenig dynamisch wirkenden Corbyn als Spitzenkandidat bei etwaigen Neuwahlen keine Chance zu haben. In der Parlamentsfraktion wird heute ein Misstrauensantrag gegen Corbyn erwartet.

There’s so much to protest against. How to keep up? | Barbara Ellen | Opinion | The Guardian
On the eve of a House of Lords vote, more than 30 charities, including Mencap, Parkinson’s UK and Mind, plus peers, including Paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson, have criticised the cuts (which would in effect reduce ESA to ordinary jobseeker level), arguing that they would put the disabled under increased pressure and make it harder for them to find work. [...] This is what matters at present – however dutifully the Labour party opposes cuts, the Tories clearly feel “unopposed” and thus free to continue unleashing their bombardments. People like me may also owe the shamed, battered Liberal Democrats an apology – during their time in coalition perhaps they did put the brakes on the worst excesses of Tory policy.

How The Socialist Surge is Growing - YouTube
via Robert Reich on.fb.me/1Pn6XFK - According to a New York Times investigation reported this morning, just 358 families and the businesses they control have contributed over half the money to the 2016 presidential election so far – mostly to Republicans who have pledged to pare regulations; cut taxes on income, capital gains and inheritances; and shrink Social Security and Medicare. On the other hand, two-thirds of Americans support higher taxes on those earning $1 million or more a year, according to a June New York Times/CBS News poll, and six in 10 favor more government intervention to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. And according to the Pew Research Center, nearly seven in 10 favor preserving Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are. To an extent we haven’t seen since the Gilded Age of the 1890s, the upcoming election is between a tiny group of super-rich and the rest of us. We must do everything possible to reclaim our democracy.

Nicola Sturgeon asks opponents to back second independence referendum - BBC News
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has challenged Scotland's Labour and Lib Dem leaders to consider backing a second vote on Scottish independence. The plea came after Kezia Dugdale and Willie Rennie said their members could campaign for independence. Ms Sturgeon said she welcomed what her opponents had said but she found it a "curious tactic". Both Labour and the Lib Dems said the first minister should concentrate on her party's record in government. SNP leader Ms Sturgeon believes there should be a further referendum on Scottish independence if there is growing support for leaving the UK or there is a "material change" in UK politics. [...] She spoke out after Ms Dugdale said there was "no denying that 30% of Labour voters voted 'Yes' in the referendum" and that she wanted to lead a party "that is comfortable with people who voted 'Yes' and 'No' backing our values of creating a fair and more equal society for everyone".

It’s the British establishment that has a problem with democracy | Seumas Milne | Comment is free | The Guardian
‘Rewarding major donors with seats in parliament and jobs in government is a long-established British tradition.’ [...] But political corruption and the implacable opposition of the spooks and military to progressive change are the traditional forms of anti-democratic politics, in Britain, as elsewhere. For the past generation it has been the corporate embrace, the revolving doors, the privatised contracts, the “free trade” treaties, European Union directives, and the removal of economics from democratic control under the neoliberal rules of the game that have set the boundaries of acceptable politics. [ Jeremy Corbyn is a symptom/backlash to the status quo ] Since the 2008 crash the rejection of that broken economic model and the hollowed-out politics that reflects it has spread across the western world, now including Britain. Which helps explain why Cameron’s Conservatives have turned to the most retrograde measures to bring opposition to heel. //&! bit.ly/1FWK86Y

Jeremy Corbyn: Labour will campaign for UK to stay in the EU | Politics | The Guardian
McFadden stressed he did not believe Cameron was seeking to undermine those rights in his talks with his EU partners, but recognises that Corbyn is deeply concerned at what he regards is a shift from a social Europe to a free-market Europe. He said: “If the prime minister tries to water down hard won employment protections that would be wrong and foolhardy on his part and we would very strongly oppose it. But if he does try to water down these protections, the right response is not to leave the EU but to fight the 2020 election on a clear commitment to restore those employment rights – and we have to remain in the EU to do that.”

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.

Cameron shows how the Tories aim to take advantage of Labour
Aware that his party is still viewed as that of the privileged, Cameron continues his mission to rebrand it as “the true party of working people”. He vows that fines for non-payment of the new £9 “living wage” will be doubled to 200 per cent of upaid wages (up to a maximum of £20,000) and that bosses who fail to pay will be disqualifed as company directors for up to 15 years. Having originally opposed the introduction of the minimum wage, the Tories' aim is to show that they have unambiguously changed.  In response, Labour will point out that forthcoming cuts to in-work benefits will cost three million families an average of £1,000 a year. Tax cuts and a higher minimum wage will not compensate the many losers. The test for Corbyn will be whether this message is heard over the cacophony of attacks on him. As Ed Miliband learned to his cost, leaders of the opposition have only a narrow window within which to define themselves. Corbyn will have to use his time wisely.

Jeremy Corbyn wins economists’ backing for anti-austerity policies | Politics | The Guardian
In the letter to which David Blanchflower, a former member of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee is a signatory, the economists write: “The accusation is widely made that Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters have moved to the extreme left on economic policy. But this is not supported by the candidate’s statements or policies. His opposition to austerity is actually mainstream economics, even backed by the conservative IMF. He aims to boost growth and prosperity.” // UK can't compete with energy rich countries - ie through rebuilding (through subsidies) its industrial and manufacturing sector - it has to add value through expert services, knowledge, digital, research to existing products goods and services that then can be re-sold across the world - high energy cost, expensive transport through lack of infrastructure of the future, and lack of in-pipeline educated mobile youngster, is a structural deficit.
