ARTICLE: Was Guy Fawkes the Last Honest Man to Pass through Westminster?

Hat tip: http://www.westernspring.co.uk/was-guy-fawkes-the-last-good-man-to-pass-through-westminster/

Imagine a government that would deliberately take millions away from the budget meant to educate its own nation’s children, while at the time use billions to send foreign aid to other nations who don’t need it?

That would be nothing less than treason. You cannot imagine any sane government doing such a thing. Think of, for example, China, or Japan, deliberately depriving its own people of an education while giving money to Korea? It just wouldn’t happen, because the Chinese and the Japanese would—rightly—regard that as nothing less than treason.

Of course, you guessed it: Britain’s House of Treason down by the banks of the old river, has done precisely that—and no-one seems to know or care.

The Tory-Lib-Dem-Labour party—because they are just all the same party—is busy with much-vaunted “budget cuts” to “save the economy” (after they and their big business bank cronies screwed it over in the first place) and one of the first cuts to be announced was in the education arena.

Any parent with university-age going children is well aware that uni fees have now rocketed from a manageable amount just two or three years ago, to an impossible £9,000 per year—and that is just for the tutoring fees, never mind books, resources, living allowances, residence and so on.

Even those students “lucky” enough to get loans, start off their working lives with tens of thousands of pounds of debt—an impossible burden which—even more importantly—makes starting a family next to impossible.

The nuts and bolts of the process are as follows: England’s university budgets were cut by £449 million in 2010, with similar cuts being added each following year. This means that over £1.3 billion has been cut in the last three years, and there is no end yet in sight. By the end of 2014, the total uni education budget cut will be cut by nearly £4 billion.

In practical terms, this means that the universities have had at least 6,000 fewer places each academic year.

In addition, research funding has been frozen and the uni buildings budget cut by 15 percent.

At the same time, the Government has announced that taxpayers will hand over £50.8 billion in foreign aid to the Third World by 2014. This translates to 61 percent of the total “spending review” cuts announced by the Government.

According to a press release issued by the Department for International Development (DFID), the total foreign aid budget will reach the targeted 0.7 percent of Gross National Income (GNI) by 2013.

This would mean a yearly spend of £12.6 billion, the DFID said.

This increased spending, the DFID said, is “in line with the UK’s international commitments to help those living in extreme poverty in our world. Over the course of the Spending Review period, the Department for International Development will increase resource spending by 35 percent in real terms, and increase capital spending by 20 percent in real terms.”

This means that the foreign aid budget was £8.4 billion in 2010, £8.7 billion in 2011, £9.1 billion in 2012, and will be £12.0 billion in 2013, and £12.6 billion in 2014—totalling £50.8 billion by the end of 2014.

So there you have it: cut the education budget by £4 billion, but boost the foreign aid budget by £50 billion.

Who would dare call it treason?  I for one, and I am increasingly becoming convinced that the last honest man to pass through the halls of Westminster was indeed Guy Fawkes.

Chris Bryant, Labour M.P., says Parliamentary Watering-Hole ‘Virtually A Gay Bar Now’

 

Parliament’s biggest bar is “virtually a gay bar now”, an MP has claimed.

Chris Bryant, Labour MP for Rhonda and shadow immigration minister told MPs during a debate on diversity that parliament had so many gay and lesbian members now that his husband worried about him going drinking there.

“Indeed, sometimes when you go into the Strangers Bar you feel as though you are in Rupert Street [in Soho]. It is virtually a gay bar now, and my husband sometimes worries about whether I should be allowed in there any more.”

Strangers, which only MPs and their guests can go to, overlooks the House of Commons terrace and the Thames.

While Bryant praised the increasing number of gay MPs he also noted that the number were not yet representative of the general population.

“It is a matter of great sadness to me that there are still only two out lesbians in Parliament… I pay tribute to those who have come out”.

It’s not the first time Bryant, an ex-vicar, has spoken out against prejudice.

He recently told MPs that the hymn Jerusalem should not be “reserved for homosexuals”, warning straight couples increasingly found clergy were not allowing it to be sung at weddings “because it is not a hymn addressed to god”.

“In the interests of equality, the same should apply to heterosexual couples getting married in civil venues.

“It seems odd to say you can’t have Jerusalem for a straight wedding yet you can have it at the same place for a gay wedding.”

Article: New Labour M.P. Chris Bryant -CALLS FOR MORE CHEAP LABOUR TO CURRY FAVOUR WITH HIS CAPITALIST MASTERS

LABOUR’s immigration spokesman yesterday dismissed claims that Britain was overcrowded.

Shadow immigration minister Chris Bryant claimed the aid Governmentattempts to curb the number of foreigners moving here were “ludicrous”.

His comments are at odds with official projections that show the country’s population will surge from 62.3 million last year to 70 million by 2027.

Two-thirds of the rise will result from immigration with the rest due to rising birth rates and increased life expectancy.

The latest immigration statistics also show that half a million immigrants arrived in Britain last year – more than 1,300 a day.

Speaking during a debate on immigration at a fringe event at the Labour Party conference in Manchester, Mr Bryant said: “There is another argument which people worry about and it is that this country is too full.

It is astonishing that a shadow minister of immigration should have so little grasp of the facts

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of think-tank MigrationWatch UK

“I don’t subscribe to that view, I find that an odd argument. It is certainly true that Britain has an economy that is far too dependent on London and the South-east and I would like us to change that.”

He agreed that Labour had got “some things wrong” about immigration in the past but hit out at the Coalition’s attempts to tackle the issue.

He said: “There are some silly things they have done, they have set themselves a ludicrous net-migration target and they have done some silly things around university’s and so on.”

The Government has argued that Labour’s previous open-door policy on immigration has forced it to crackdown on numbers arriving in the country.

David Cameron has vowed to cut net-migration – the number of those arriving minus the number of those leaving
– to the tens of thousands by the end of this parliament.

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of think-tank MigrationWatch UK, said: “It is astonishing that a shadow minister of immigration should have so little grasp of the facts.

“Labour’s failure to address the immigration issue is the reason that 3.5 million immigrants arrived on their watch. It seems that they have learned nothing.”

MigrationWatch says net immigration needs to fall from its current level of 216,000 to around 40,000 a year to stop the population reaching 70 million.

Nearly 80 per cent of people in England think the country is overcrowded, a survey found earlier this year.
