Privatisation – Water good idea eh?

 

 Water privatisation? Thatcher’s legacy? Gimme strength! All of us should understand why we are in such a mess with our water supply. In reality, only a few of us do, certainly not the BBC interviewers when questioning the water supply companies. Their ignorance is jaw dropping. The simple fact is

John Major’s extraordinary hypocrisy today

 

 Today John Major slated the current Conservative government, for the second time, for its lies and hypocrisy. He is probably correct in what he said but… Have the BBC journalists, and the rest who televised this man’s words, forgotten what he did whilst Prime Minister between 1990 and 1997? Back

Afghanistan – Hurrah for Biden’s words

 

 At last! Some objective truth emerges from a USA president’s lips. Biden just said that American troops would no longer fight for a people who would not fight for themselves. The BBC radio news and website omitted those most important words. They did so because those words were critical to

“The fairy tale of eternal economic growth”

 

 I was going to entitle this article “The current BAME*1 game diversion”, but, Greta Thunberg’s words are far more powerful, and, more to the point. Dr Erich Schumacher made strong arguments against economic growth in his 1973 book “Small is beautiful (Economics as if people mattered)” ; in my view
