GMB Millions Move Forced Ed’s Weak Hand

GMB Red Ed Ballot Paper

Within days of the GMB canceling their million pound direct debit to the Labour Party, Ed exonerates the unions from undemocratically stitching up MP selections. Brutal power politics at its most raw. Union member witnesses mysteriously withdrew their allegations that they were signed up to the Falkirk Labour Party without their knowledge, Karie Murphy withdraws her candidature and everything is swept under the carpet in time for TUC conference. Ed has bottled it…

The GMB made him leader, they pay the bills, they pull his strings on policy and they have now pulled his leash. Ed’s attempt to stand up to the unions has left him looking weaker…

    Fact: GMU currently affiliates on basis of 420,000 members @ £3 each a year.

    Fact: that amounts to some £1,260,000 a year.

    GMU reckons 50,000 members voted in Labour Leadership election. That suggests the actual politically-active and motivated core.

    Fact: under Miliband’s scheme, those 50,000 join the Party as individuals.

    Fact: 50,000 @ £3.71 each a month amounts to £2,226,000 a year.

    Fact: if 30,000 of those affiliates became full members, the Party is into profit.

    Facts: troublesome little details found in most political commentaries, but rarely in this one.

    Loons: far more plentiful here.

    Casual Observer made a good post last night about the corruption that has unsurprisingly seeped from every other walk of public life into the NGO sector. I hope he is wrong about Médecins sans frontières but fear he is correct.

    However I think there is a full-circle rationale witnessed in the unwillingness of the elected legislatures (in both UK and USA) to support any decision to go to war if there is not seen to be any direct or contingent threat to our national interest that recalls the policies of non-intervention some decades ago.

    It is harder to do nothing nowadays as the media brings it straight to us. But doing nothing can be an honourable option if there is any chance that direct involvement will actually make matters worse.

    The calculus relating to such decisions has been badly skewed in the past by relying on poor intelligence so the onus of proof must always reflect this now widely acknowledged weakness. That is why the British people are 80% in favour of keeping out of Syria, a position with which I totally agree.

    Labour opened the flood gates to get people in for:

    1. Votes
    2. Tax revenue
    3. Reduced cost of Labor

    they bribed the first generation with housing and benefits, so as they could afford to work cheap, pay tax and vote. They did not extend pension benefits though as new comers were to cover existing liabilities now capped.

    The next generation are not entitled to school places etc in their calculation as this destroys the public sector savings. They I guess hoped that low wages and no meaningful future would have prevented breeding. They got that wrong.

Will Congress and the American public buy the White House lie that they must support war criminals and liars or “America will lose face”?

    The obama regime’s lies are so transparent and blatant that the cautious, diplomatic President Putin of Russia lost his patience and stated the fact that we all already know: John Kerry is a liar. Putin said: “This was very unpleasant and surprising for me. We talk to them [the Americans], and we assume they are decent people, but he [Kerry] is lying and he knows that he is lying.

    Of course, it won’t be anything like 20%. Focus on the 50,000: they are the activists. Many of that cohort are locked into positions and involvements in local Labour Parties, Trades Councils, delegated offices, whatever. They’ll have to cough the full subs.

    Meanwhile, you are howlingly wrong about NUT. It’s not an affiliated union, as far as I know. What I do know, from bitter personal encounters, is that the high-octane activists (especially in and around London) are SWP and even worse.

    Get with the program and follow the facts.

    Britain faces huge challenges but if we work together, we can rebuild Britain as One Nation.

    Britain is at a fork in the road.

    We can either carry on as we are, heading further into a lost decade. A lost decade where young people can’t find work, where energy companies and train companies charge rip off prices, where wages fall year on year and where the government says there is nothing they can do, apart from give tax cuts to millionaires.

    Or we can work together to turn things round with a recovery made by the many and built to last. We can build that recovery by nurturing new and higher quality jobs, ensuring everyone has access to proper education and training and that the businesses Britain needs for the future can get proper support from our banks.

    I know that wealth is not created just by a few at the top but by every single person who goes to work in this country – every builder, teacher, small business, carer and checkout worker.

    All these people need to succeed is a government that’s on their side, that helps everyone play their part.

    That’s what One Nation Labour is all about. And I hope you will join us in our work.

    The recent billion euro Saud! arms deal signed with France is perhaps also relevant. Signed off and announced on the 29th Aug. US also signed a very large deal last month.

    Point of Information 5 says:

    The real Jimmy would not give such a coherent argument.

    Also, Jimmy would not erroneously lay the blame at !srael’s door.

    Look to Qatar / Saud! Arab!a / France for the main source of the weapons and funding. Follow the !slamic trail of the Sunn! radical and the Wahhabist for some of the modus operandi.

    The drawing in of !ran is a clear strategy, and the US !srael lobby perhaps does have a role in the design and running of that. But !ran have extended the olive branch to !srael, so this is perhaps not going to wash as easily.

    Comparing the systems of governance in Syr!a and !srael would be a worthwhile exercise, considering that regime change in Syr!a because of perceived ‘badness’ of that government is apparently desired.

    Laying the wholesale blame at !srael’s door is a trap, and not the complete truth.

    The !sraeli-Arab!an axis is most curious and has been overlooked thus far.

    As of June 2013 of the 400 councils In England and Wales there are now 86 paying or committed to pay their staff the living wage. In addition all 32 councils in Scotland are now living wage employers paying their staff at least the living wage.

    The councils in England and Wales are:

    Ashfield District Council, LB Barking and Dagenham, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Bassetlaw District Council , Blackpool Council, Birmingham City Council, Braintree District Council, LB Brent, Brighton and Hove City Council, Bristol City Council, Bromsgrove District Council, Burnley Borough Council, Caerphilly County Borough Council, Cambridge City Council, Cherwell District Council, Calderdale Council, LB Camden, Cardiff Council, Carlisle City Council Chorley Borough Council, City of London Corporation, Coventry City Council, Crawley Borough Council, Croydon Council, Dartford Borough Council, Deal Town Council, LB Ealing, LB Enfield, Exeter City Council, Gedling District Council, Gloucester City Council, LB Greenwich, LB Haringey, Harlow District Council, LB Harrow, LB Hounslow, Hyndburn Borough Council, Ipswich Borough Council, LB Islington, North Kesteven District Council, LB Lambeth, Lancaster City Council, Leicester City Council, LB Lewisham, Malvern Hills District Council, Mansfield District Council, Manchester City Council, Melton Mowbray District Council, LB Merton, Newark and Sherwood District Council, LB Newham, Newcastle under Lyme Borough Council, Newcastle City Council, Newport City Council, Norwich City Council, Nottingham City Council, Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council, Oxford City Council, Plymouth City Council, Preston City Council, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, Rossendale Borough Council, Salford City Council, Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Sheffield City Council, Slough Borough Council, South Gloucestershire Council, LB Southwark, Surrey County Council, Swindon Borough Council, Swansea City and County Council, Tamworth Borough Council, Thurrock Council, LB Tower Hamlets, South Tyneside Council, Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council, Winchester City Council, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council, Worcester City Council, Wolverhampton City Council, Wyre Forest District Council and City or York Council.

    GMB congratulates all 22 councils in Scotland for their trailblazing decision to introduce a living wage at their councils from 1st April this year (2013). This is pointing the way forward for councils in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    GMB in Jan 2013 launched a campaign to win a living wage for 280,000 low paid workers in councils across England and Wales. See copies of campaign material in additional resources at the bottom of this page:

    GMB Living Wage – Petition
    GMB Living Wage – Workplace Poster
    GMB Living Wage – Model Council Resolution
    GMB has secured the support of Labour leader Ed Miliband and Shadow Treasury Secretary Rachel Reeves for higher pay for low paid council staff and other workers across the UK.

    Council pay rates start at £6.30ph, just 11p above the national minimum wage. As a result hundreds of thousands of council workers are forced to claim tax credits, free school meals, housing benefit and council tax benefit to make ends meet.

    GMB is campaigning for a living wage – keep up to date with the latest GMB press releases.

    Not the money tree says:

    Question. Does the living wage take into account other benefits an employee may already be receiving? Housing benefit- council house- additional holiday allowances etc? Are they factored into which employee needs a living wage as you seem to imply they only need to get increased pay to reduce the benefits that they claim?
    {Please see below also.}

    – Is the living wage regional? Does an employee in Hull receive the same wage as an employee in London? If so, why? Living standards vary considerably.

    – Have councils reduced employee numbers in order to pay this living wage or have they increased council tax, thereby raising a tax on their constituents to pay for this increased cost?

    – is the living wage included in all future pension commitments? IE has the council not only increased it s costs but also dramatically increased its future liabilities too?

    – Have any cuts to services been made to pay these new salaries?

    – Has there been an incremental shift in ALL council worker’s pay in order to retain the divisions of labour or are managers now paid the same as non-managers?

    – Have these newly increased paid workers undergone an assessment from the council in order to ensure that as they were claiming free school meals, tax exemptions and credits etc, that they are no longer doing so as they now no longer need to?

    – Why is it mainly Labour councils who’s officers and elected officials are in receipt of union money that have agreed to this increased public expense? is this not in fact a conflict of interests? is this in fact..lobbying? Something the labour party is against.

    – Have workers agreed to any new productivity targets in order to qualify for this new sum? or is it simply a bigger payment for doing the same job in the same way?
    In fact, if no productivity has been agreed then surely all the union has done is to put these jobs at risk once private companies show they can deliver the same services at a considerable saving?

    Thankyou for your post and I’m sure that once you have demonstrated that there has been no increase or additional burden onto council tax payers and no services cut, and that no one has been given a significant wage increase many times above that their private sector colleagues might enjoy, but for no extra work, then we would all welcome this interesting proposal.

    Dame Diane says:

    The living wage is nonsense, It simply increases costs for no net gain. We will rue the day…..

    For example, lets say the living wage increases to £10 per hour. The government and local authorities have to raise taxes to pay the extra. Because taxes have gone up, the living wage has to go up to, say £11 per hour. However, private sector workers have to find extra tax to pay the living wage to the public sector – even if they are on wages below the living wage themselves.
    The public sector is already paid more than the private sector and has huge, gold-plated pensions. We need to redistribute public sector pay and pensions back to the private sector.

Despite that they continue to lend money to other Labour controlled councils from their reserves, and declined to take up the government’s offer of additional cash this year.
    That’s what happens when Labour gain control and the ‘chief executive’ has been a union trougher all his life, ratcheting up his salary by moving from one council to another.

    The State of !sreal is the greatest threat to the Middle East – it wants to attack Syria and then Iran – everyone whose eyes and ears are half open knows that – And the lead warmongers AIPAC state its openly

    Above all, to push western countries into sacrificing ilives and treasure for a

    2. We shall hire a magician to come and entertain us and when he has finished pulling rabbits from hats he can magic some more money out of thin air to spend on those poor people who vote for us.

    6. We’ll tax everybody at a million percent and pay them benefits back. They’ll be so grateful they’ll come to the party too, and because there’ll be crisps and cakes and sandwiches they won’t need to buy their own food. So we can tax them even more.

    “What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.

    What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income — to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That’s what I’m opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics.”

    Point of Information 5 says:

    The humanitarian situation is a problem now.

    It would be increased significantly by an intervention, excluding an intervention coordinated with and at the request of the Syr!an government.

    With the current state of EU, especially the periphery, a large number of refugees showing up would be a big impact. In Greece it has not helped their fragile political status quo at present.

    J0rdan and Lebanon have been bearing the brunt thus far, but !srael is now beginning to see displaced Syr!ans showing up en-masse at their border.

    The people have been displaced by the insurgent forces, not the government.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Kerry’s rhetoric in attempting to promote his and his friends’ case for attacking is floundering. Even the lawmakers in the US have to be careful with the legalese being touted as if it were fact. Kerry stated by implication of it being ‘clear’ it was Assad – yet he still used the believe word.

    If you do not know for a fact then put a sock in it Kerry.

    Kerry and his executives’ case for ‘attack, attack’ has more holes in it than the bumbling and bungling ruse [pack of lies and twisted statistics] of Al [fucking] Gore’s pitiful Global Warming scaremongering < The vast majority of its so called scientific evidence having been outed as legalese, fear-mongering, hot air and utter drivel in order to mislead the masses on 'both sides of the Atlantic'.

    If they can't have civil, open and transparent public discussions with the public – then politicians have no right to claim any form of public / national interest without being held to account. And that includes the despicable closing down of public opinion by the msm as well.

  357. 357
    Point of Information 5 says:

    To clarify why I singled out French being a problem was to focus on the EU angle.

    UK has been supplying materiel, but has mainly logistical equipment to the insurgents. eg. The mobile phones a lot of them have been using to make propaganda flicks for uTube.

    If UK guns / grenades / etc. start showing up, then Parliament has some very serious questions to ask of Hague.

    France has been supplying arms and cash.

    The Qatar!, Saud! and US involvement, when looked at from the humanitarian angle and the direct impact it is having in the region should be considered as hostile action against EU periphery nations, J0rdan, Turkey and !srael.

    They have been supplying arms, fighters and most importantly the ideology which has been dr!ving the insurgents on.

    Creating humanitarian problems is a standard strategy in warfare, and a powerful one. In particular large refugee displacements are good for clearing land and destabilizing regions. Draining the resources of the enemy by creating casualties slows them down and weakens them.

    An example of the last point: The deliberate targeting by insurgent snipers of children in Syr!a, aiming for the spine to cripple rather than kill.

    The interventionists are supporting these actions by targeting the Syr!an government, and a practice which will leave a permanent mark on the next generation of Syr!ans.

    In a twisted way the NGOs appear to be satisfied with this as where they are assisting in dealing with the problem, they are able to justify their continued funding.

    It should be noted that NGOs are involved as the Syr!an government is tied up with the insurgents, and itself is denied the ability to purchase the resources it need to deal with this problem due to trade restrictions which have been imposed on the country.

    One should look at this entire picture very carefully, and somewhat dispassionately.

    Point of Information 5 says:

    The easiest way to fix the mess is to cut the funding and supply lines to the insurgents. They will run out of munitions fairly quickly.

    Lift the trade embargo’s on the Syr!an government.

    Allow the government to finish off the insurgents, and perhaps supply UN observers to confirm that the government does not take action against its own people, or use CW in dealing with it insurgent problem.

    Humanitarian aid in the form of food and medical supplies should be made available to the Syr!an government and local agencies on the ground, with UN oversight to ensure and assist in distribution.

    Russ!a itself should be a willing assistant and donor.

    The UK may wish to provide aid, but needs to work on rebuilding diplomatic links with the country with an eye on the future.

    Syr!a could be a good trading partner moving forward.

    Free trade across the Levant should be more in the UKs interest than the false case for regime change and disruption of trade which the insurgency is causing.

    This is a Poco song: And Settling Down from A Good Feelin’ to Know.

    It has arguably the strongest hook in any of their songs in the chorus at the end of each stanza (0:27, 0:37, 1:11, 1:48 etc) repeat together with incredible harmonies lifted by the incredible voice of Timothy B Schmitt (1:27).

    I cannot find any chatter on the internet about this subtle use of a slightly overlong pause before resuming with an emphatic return of the opening chord to the next portion. If there is a recognised musical term for this device, I should love to know.

    Saw them live at the New Vic on 27/10/1976. It was the Pаul Cotton reincarnation, the founding members Jim Messina and Richie Furay had already left but Rusty Young was still playing brilliantly as ever.

    “Stupid idiots at the Proms are massacring ‘You’ll never walk alone”. Far, far too slow. Americans should leave British popular culture alone.They can’t always do it.”

    This comes as news to us.

    After all, we only wrote the fucking thing– about a young widow in New England having to face the fact that her late husband was a criminal, and that she will have to raise their daughter alone– sung to her by a relative, telling her that she will never walk alone because impliedly she has friends, family, and Almighty God with her. (Reprised at the end when her daughter graduates from high school and the girl’s father, in spirit, watches her.)

    It was in the BROADWAY show, Carousel, which premiered in 1945, FIVE fucking years before it played in London the first time.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Roman-a-Clef Service says:

    That part of the film was more specifically a reference to Samuel Insull, a British-born investor who owned the Chicago electric utility corporation and elevated transit lines. He built the Chicago opera house for his wife. That particular fact would have been a fairly recent memory for filmgoers in 1941. Orson Welles did this as a way of deflecting criticism that he was skewering William Randolph Hearst personally– almost all of Kane’s biographical details are at variance with Hearst’s and quite similar to those of other tycoons, for this very purpose– and yet in its overall effect, the fact of its being about Hearst was undeniable.

    broderick crawford says:

    Grumpy dwarf Gordon Strachan has refuted claims he is a garden ornament which has been brought to life through the use of black magic.
    The Scotland manager addressed the issue after his team were bent over and had their liberty taken by a genetically superior Belgium side.

    He said: “I still can’t believe this story keeps coming up.

    “I’m a man, a very small angry man who doesn’t look human…but I am human.

    “Let me take this opportunity to say, I am not a fucking gnome, or a fucking hobbit or one of the supporting characters from Gregory’s Girl. I am me, no one else.”

    A source close to the funny looking Strachan confirmed there will always be questions over his genealogy.

    “No matter what he says or does, people can’t help imaging him dressed as one of Santa’s helpers or a character from Lord of the Rings.

    “His family keep telling him he should be thankful.

    “If the Nazis had won the war, he would probably be performing in a camp somewhere to groups of Japanese and German businessmen, whose moral compasses have been surgically removed by the satanic overlords who have turned the world into a living fucking horror show.”

    The leftie health warning says:

    So as unemployment falls and all economic conditions improve rapidly the Lefties fall back on their normal moaning. The TUC have issued a report that they say indicates Unemployment Figure Could Be Double and many economically inactive are not counted. It’s odd because during the method of counting over the 13 years of terror between 1997 and 2010 this did not appear to be an issue.

    The TUC, Labour and the left in general just cannot bring themselves to admit they got it all wrong and always get it wrong. Expect to see days of moaning and deriding the recovery from a crash that THEY themselves created along with their banker friends who suddenly are now the enemy and the friends of the right.

    Of course the BBC have this front and centre of the news reports so again doing all they can to damage the country , the present government and anyone one that does not agree with the twisted minds of the left in general

    Vote Labour back in if you must but be aware of he consequences of doing so. If they ever get hod of power again there will be absolutely no return for the UK. Don’t say you have not be warned.

    And anyone who thinks that attacking Assad will only make things worse if an “apppeaser”?

    Not Blowing Whistles says:

    No problem BW + no need to chastise yourself.

    The official CP maxim of ‘leading beyond authority’ makes as much legitimate sense as ‘leading by authority’.

    Legitimate leaders lead with authority, the authority being granted by consensus of those following to their leader.

    This is the ‘democratic’ way.

    The corruption CP has promoted, and that which you put down in error, point to a subtle difference. In both cases the consensus of granting authority is removed, and in the CP case, that leadership is by those unaccountable to authority as they are beyond this.

    Both suggest a dictatorship model. The CP version an explicitly unaccountable one for would be leaders.

    For CP to be disassembled, their so called leaders simply need to be held to account, and consensus allowed to grant authority to leaders moving forward. The legitimacy of CP qualifications should also be clarified and in most cases denied.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
