My thanks to all the Green Party members who attended,it was also refreshing to see the Labour Party and Independent Councillors who came and spoke openly,if you take on the role and have the guts to face the public of this city then you have my respect unlike the Tories and Liberal Democrats.Please take note from Tory Land we will not be losing as many jobs,i suggest you speak with the unions who attended last night and ask there views. It seems when the vote over student fees comes to a head the Liberal Democrats will abstain-Spineless comes to mind. One thing that keeps coming up people have not yes realised the seriousness of what the Condems are proposing and when they feel the pinch things will change,the Green have stood openly and made our case clear we will support the fight against the Condem cuts and the shameless ripping apart of our public services. Other meeting are taking place and i hope more will join the growing list of supporters.
”During the general election campaign many of our MPs (and now government ministers) signed a pledge with the National Union of Students that they would vote against any tuition fee rises during the course of the next Parliament.
“The wording of this pledge clearly indicated that this would be unconditional; regardless of whether the party was in government or in opposition.
“The party has been very clear for many years about its view on tuition fees and that we feel they should be abolished.”
But the petition went on: “There is one thing that sets the Liberal Democrats apart from other political parties; this is that when we say we will do something during election campaigns we then do it in government.”
The proposals to allow universities to raise fees by up to £9,000 a year have sparked two days of mass protests by students and lecturers this month.
I wonder if i should send a copy of how not to be hacked to Mrs Clinton.The spy masters of the world must be worried over job losses when all it takes is a quick look on wilkileaks.What form of security do these idiots have to allow so much data be accessed? the silly things that come out can be found amusing and gives some insight to the American mind set but some of the items that are being withheld by the major players like the Guardian thank god a paper with integrity could be dangerous to operatives around the world, when there lives are put in Danger it worries me. YOU CAN OPERATE DENIAL OF SERVICE ATTACKS ON ANY SITE but when the source is found you can attempt to stop it. What happens when the rest of the date leaks.Freedom of information is something i support but when it puts lives at risk it concerns me.
The Manchester Green Party monthly open meeting in December will be held in Levenshulme on Thursday 9th December at 7.00pm:
Public transport access from the city centre is by train or by bus, including the frequent 192 route, from Piccadilly. Arriving by train turn left out of the station onto Albert Road, go under the railway bridge to Stockport Road, and Isis is within 100 yards on the left.
Did you sit back and watch the TV political debates,two good sales men and one man who deserved a little better but never had the charisma to sell his self.Look back on the Nixon Kennedy shots on U tube,same problems in a different time. But do you feel cheated when you voted Liberal Democrat with their attacks on the Tories Vat rises,Student Fees,and now they sit there and fully support all cuts,VAT rises,increased student fees,Atomic power.What really happened to their manifesto down the pan with there credibility? remember that in May 2011.
I mean no defence to Labour but were the Tories in Salford the ones who kept on winging about Labours plans to build double the Number that they have proposed? looks good on leaflets though.
I think i would be more concerned about the security of the people who live in the damned Houses all ready, perhaps our local Liberal Democrats would like to explain to the worried residents we will.
I had a thought does it mean working all year round but not always in the area you were elected to represent? like for example stretford? just a thought.Let down by the Liberal Democrats.
What’s you view on the economic collapse that we are see today?who do you blame.
- Were the Labour Government at fault for its lack of regulation on the Banking sector.
- Are the Banks to blame for allowing access to easy money,offering credit to those that were unable to pay back the debt.
- Is it to easy to declare bankruptcy to take out the easy option and start next week under a new name.
- Are we to blame for being like the Joneses and wanting what next door have without the ability to pay for it.
- Is credit to easy to get.
- Do we live in a society were this is to be expected like a roundabout.that what we are seeing comes around in cycles.
- Should we protect are markets.
- Is the European market working.
- Are we not producing the goods people want to buy
- Are we living above our means as a Nation.
Do you have a view?
We had an executive meeting last night with candidates for the May elections and like you do we poured the coffee later and talked about the issues of the day,one that i had never thought about came up and made me think.With the Condems cleansing the city of the poor and less well off with there benefit capping are we going to see a mass exodus from the city of people looking for homes.where do the condems think they will go to find these none existent dwellings.It strikes me that once again we see a Government that as no idea of what it’s actions are going to be in the long term,short term knee jerk reactions is something that to me will only lead to chronic long term failure.
