Anti-Semitism: Labour could face human rights probe - BBC News
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission said it was considering launching a formal investigation into anti-Semitism in the party.

The Labour Party said: "We completely reject any suggestion the party has acted unlawfully and will be co-operating fully with the EHRC."

The watchdog is asking the party to work with it to improve its processes.

Once the EHRC's formal letter is received by Labour, the party will have 14 days to respond to the concerns raised.

An Equality and Human Rights Commission spokesperson said: "Having received a number of complaints regarding anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, we believe Labour may have unlawfully discriminated against people because of their ethnicity and religious beliefs.

"Our concerns are sufficient for us to consider using our statutory enforcement powers.

"As set out in our enforcement policy, we are now engaging with the Labour Party to give them an opportunity to respond."

Ilhan Omar is right about the influence of the Israel lobby | Alex Kotch | Opinion | The Guardian
Following the Ilhan Omar controversy, it’s incredibly important to be able to decipher between real antisemitism and basic political facts [...] Omar’s controversial tweets noted two important realities. First, money is a huge problem, and motivator, in Washington. Second, Aipac is a powerful group that uses its money to influence the policy decisions of members of Congress. As both Mehdi Hasan and Ryan Grim detail in the Intercept, Aipac officials have bragged about their power over Washington lawmakers.

Taibbi: Goodbye, and Good Riddance, to Centrism - Rolling Stone
In December, Barack Obama said he wasn't worried about the "Corbynization" of American politics because "the Democratic Party has stayed pretty grounded in fact and reality." [...] For decades pundits and pols have been telling progressive voters they don't have the juice to make real demands, and must make alliances with more "moderate" and presumably more numerous "centrists" in order to avoid becoming the subjects of right-wing monsters like Reagan/Bush/Bush/Trump.

Voters for decades were conned into thinking they were noisome minorities whose best path to influence is to make peace with the mightier "center," which inevitably turns out to support military interventionism, fewer taxes for the rich, corporate deregulation and a ban on unrealistic "giveaway" proposals like free higher education. Those are the realistic, moderate, popular ideas, we're told. [...] Here and abroad, voters in other words stopped deferring to politicians and media figures and began making their own decisions about what is and is not realistic.

Yes this really is the end of Tory austerity – because it was never about economics in the first place | The Independent
[private sector will pick up the tap - the households did, but not corporations! bc long-term ROI growth in not attractive in the west w secular stagnation! see Richard Koo ] But it was a very long time coming. It became clear within a year of George Osborne’s 2010 “emergency budget”, which forced through huge cuts in capital budgets and an intense squeeze on Whitehall departments and welfare spending, that the austerity medicine was hurting, not helping.

The economy was flatlining, teetering on the verge of recession. Whether this was primarily due to the crisis in the neighbouring eurozone and a spike in global oil prices or because the negative knock-on impact of the government’s domestic spending cuts was bigger than initially thought is still debated by economists.

From the NME to No 10 – could the youth vote win Corbyn the election? | Politics | The Guardian
The huge divergence hinges on a key question puzzling the pollsters. Will a flock of young voters, enthused by Corbyn’s willingness to pump billions into the welfare state and abolish tuition fees, head to the polls in record numbers to back him? Will the adoring crowds that turn up to his events, the cheers he received when he pitched up at a Libertines gig, or the kudos gained from being the cover star for the NME and Kerrang! magazines translate into a new voting zeal among the under-25s?

Researchers have answered a big question about the decline of the middle class - The Washington Post
“This idea that we’re having this progression of increasing incomes over time — I think that might be true for the upper regions of the income distribution but not for the median,” said Nathaniel Hendren, a Harvard University economist who was not involved in the study. [...] The implication, Guvenen argues, is that economists should search for explanations for households’ current financial woes in the youth and childhood of today’s workers.

“We are maybe looking at the wrong place for the solution to stagnation in wages and rising inequalities,” Guvenen said. “To understand higher inequality, we should turn and take a closer look at youth.” /// &! one comment https://redd.it/69zf27 said part to do w competition. if you don't work for that money, others will. labour pool available for some kind of work. already applicable in the auto industry in usa uk and germany.

Tony Blair's legacy 20 years on - BBC News
[hard left was banished to the wilderness under Blair] Blair's supporters point to his domestic achievements - the minimum wage and all the new schools, hospitals and Sure Start children's centres that were built during his time in power - and they insist that his reputation will one day recover.
But with Britain on its way out of the European Union, and the Labour Party back in the hands of the left, it seems like much of what Blair stood for has been swept away.

Jeremy Corbyn has attracted "socialism fans", not Labour voters
centrist left was infiltrated my outright socialists - Although Corbyn was originally elected with broad support from existing members of the party, his power base within it now primarily consists of people who joined it in order to re-shape it in his image and their own. These people might best be thought of as "socialism fans", and are quite different from traditional Labour Party members and voters. They are people who joined the party not because they agreed with its goals and wanted to help it achieve them, but because they identified with the culture of Leftism and sought an active form of cultural participation — much as theatre buffs might join an amateur dramatics club, or history enthusiasts might join a medieval re-enactment society.

BBC's Brexit coverage pessimistic and skewed, say MPs - BBC News
[ there is no backbench in Parliament and Lords, there is no opposition in parliament and lords, and then the parliament attacks the media ] A group of 72 MPs have written to the BBC accusing it of being pessimistic and skewed in its Brexit coverage - in the months since the vote on the EU.
In a letter to director general Tony Hall, they said the BBC is "unfairly representing" Leave voters by focusing on those who regret their decision.
The MPs warned the future of the BBC "will be in doubt" if it is not seen as a impartial broker.
Lord Hall said impartiality was the "cornerstone" of BBC News.

The 60% of the population who do not want Conservative rule are faced with Conservative rule without end, with the only pressure for change coming from an ever-more audacious right.

Given that equality is so central to EU law, and given the emphasis that has been placed by the prime minister on equality since her speech outside No 10 when she first entered Downing Street, it came as a surprise to me that the word “equality” does not appear once in the government’s white paper.

There is a brief mention of women’s rights in relation to maternity leave, but no mention of race, disability or sexuality and gender identity.

This cannot be credibly perceived as a deal that works for everyone in Britain if women, BAME, disabled people and LGBT communities aren’t even referenced in the white paper.

The clearest example is competition from foreign workers, which really has slammed the American working class. Economists David Autor, David Dorn, and Gordon Hanson did very careful empirical work and found that competition from China lowered wages and increased unemployment for American workers who were in competition with Chinese imports. Economists Michael Elsby, Bart Hobijn, and Aysegul Sahin found that competition from developing countries—not the decline of unions or the rise of automation—has been responsible for the bulk of the recent decline in labor’s share of income in the United States.

EU governments would consult their business sectors, she added, and she was "not worried that we will not stick together". [...] The Financial Times praises the prime minister's "bold vision" but warns that the road ahead will be perilous. [...] At Prime Minister's Questions, Mr Corbyn urged Mrs May to "stop her threat of a bargain basement Brexit, a low-paid tax haven on the shores of Europe".
He added: "It won't necessarily damage the EU but it would certainly damage this country." [...] Mrs May told MPs: "What I set out yesterday was a plan for a global Britain, bringing prosperity to this country and jobs to people and spreading economic growth across this country." [...] "not just nasty but also blind to reality".

For Tories who won their seats from Lib Dems in 2015, this is a sign that there is a small but significant block of voters for whom Brexit is a motivating issue. (Nearly three-quarters of voters in Richmond voted Remain.) For Labour, the concern is that a political discussion polarised around pro/anti-Brexit lines leaves them out of the picture - as has happened in Scotland, where the narrative is framed around independence/unionism.  //&! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38178486

[...] median income divide (low median income = leave vote) [...] 'Poorest voted to leave as life can't get any harder. And punch the toffs in the face. The only chance you've got.' [...] net immigration 300k low skilled, the sized of Newcastle = pressure on schools and services (longer queues). + AUSTERITY + secular stagnation + no wage increase + cost of living increase = DISASTER. low skilled England had to compete with low skilled EEA immigrants.

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.

Inside Story - What's the future of the UK in the wake of Brexit? - YouTube
Felt left behind! proxy protest vote. Dog whistle racism/xenophobia. World of post-fact politics and post-fact campaigning! Still a protest vote vs the elite and establishment always promised Disneyland. Reclaiming democracy at home, from bureaucracy, unelected officials, unaccountable ones, in Brussels. Young voters; 3 in 10 voted. Scewed the result somewhat. This is a warning to mainstream parties around the western world. Politics is being hollowed out, voters go to either extremes as alternative!

The tech industry has cut a Google’s worth of jobs in the past 12 months
bigger companies, more profitable products, with less people. // “It would be wrong to assume that increased job cuts are a sign of weakness in the tech sector,” Challenger, Gray & Christmas CEO John Challenger said in a statement. “The simple fact is that the industry is going through a transformation and companies either have to shift their focus or risk extinction. We will always need technology, but how we interact with it, as well as where and when we interact with it, are changing rapidly.” //&! http://recode.net/2016/04/19/intel-chipmaker-mobile-earnings-restructuring/ - Intel missed the mobile revolution.
