Labour to oppose 'Henry VIII powers' being used to rewrite EU laws | Politics | The Guardian
[ no moderation, moderation is gone. Global Britain is here. 'indyref2 wil happen one way or another. no opposition and no say will infuriate Scots even more eventually ] It is expected that this will involve extensive use of “Henry VIII powers” – laws allowing ministers to change primary legislation (government bills) using secondary legislation (orders that go through parliament with little or no scrutiny). [...] Corbyn said Labour would oppose handing ministers such extensive powers when the House of Commons votes on the great repeal bill. [ less accountability, transparency, democracy, representation ... more technical! technocracy! that was voted actually against as it is practiced in EU ... the irony ] //&!

Steuerdeals: Fiat und Starbucks müssen offenbar zahlen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ POSITIONING: all in the name of job creation and prevention of job losses. Playing with fear, spin, pr, polarization, populism, propaganda, corporate media. Policy Makers making policy for capital. // Policy Making for the Super Rich, 1%, vested interest groups. ] Seit Monaten prüft die EU-Kommission dubiose Steuerabsprachen zwischen Konzernen und Mitgliedstaaten. Nun soll offenbar eine erste Entscheidung verkündet werden: Insidern zufolge drohen Starbucks und Fiat hohe Nachzahlungen. [...] Laut Insidern wird die Brüsseler Behörde Steuerabsprachen mit dem italienischen Autohersteller Fiat in Luxemburg und der US-Kaffeehauskette Starbucks in den Niederlanden voraussichtlich als unzulässige Subventionen bewerten. //&! bit.ly/1W4TY0F

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
