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 ] //&!

Doctors, teachers, the police – public servants are demoralised | Will Hutton | Comment is free | The Guardian
To toil in the present-day NHS is thankless. [...] Whatever its merits, a workforce whose morale is already low sees it as yet more evidence that professionals’ views don’t count. Morale takes a further downward lurch. [...] Thus by 2020, the government will have imposed an unprecedented 10-year freeze in real pay across the public sector, shrunk its numbers by more than 1.5 million and offered as little upward career progression to public employees as it possibly can. A new industry of private contractors feeding off contracted-out public work will have been invented, offering even worse pay and conditions than the public sector itself. To raise taxes that might alleviate the crisis is ideologically prohibited. [...] Employees are voting with their feet. Between November 2013 and November 2014, 49,120 teachers quit – the highest rate on record. Nearly four in 10 newly qualified teachers leave after their first year. [...] [ Met warned less police officers on street ]

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.

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).
