Dodgy Relationships- Nuclear Intimacy

13-02-2012 22:55

Dodgy relationships bought with millions of pounds of taxpayers money and promoting the nuclear agenda grow more blatent day by day.  The nuclear corruption of Cumbria's decision makers could of course be a horrid series of coincidences that remain unchallenged and unreported on, it is surely too blatent to be a conspiracy?  

Lord Clark non executive director of Sellafield is on a salary 'not in the public domain' he is also chair of the Lake District National Park Partnership. Lake District National Park meetings chaired by Lord Clark reveal a bias as he talks up the safety and economic importance of Sellafield and new nuclear developments while playing down the risks.  

Under his chairmanship the LDNPA SUPPORTS dangerous new build (9 new reactors) at Sellafield and is going merrily along on  'steps towards geological disposal' of high level nuclear waste under Cumbria. As well as Lord Clark's salary as a non executive director of Sellafield, the LDNPA itself is in reciept of money from Managing Radioactive Wastes Safely (MRWS). Government has drastically cut the LDNPA's budget and is now filtering taxpayers money to the Lake District National Park from MRWS ( a government quango set up to promote a geological dump in Cumbria).

Everyone has their price?

Cumbria Tourism Eric Robson  - good old Uncle Eric, the countryman that everyone loves is the Chair of Cumbria Tourism and part owner of Osprey Communications the PR Team given the government contract to push the nuclear dump (Eric is featured in the book 'When the Water Flows' as 'the voice.'  Free to view here:  t


Made in Cumbria and the Chamber of Commerce now funded by the arms and nuclear industry


Don't forget the slush fund....


More on Lord Clark



The Bishop of Carlisle (i.e. Cumbria) was making pronuclear pronouncements supporting new build and geological dump - even before his enthronement at Carlisle Cathedral.

Solidarity with the Greek People

13-02-2012 02:55

Demonstrate in solidarity with the Greek people

It was in Greece that the concept of democracy - rule by the people - was born.  Now the Greek people are bravely protesting against the government in Athens which is trying to impose  extreme austerity measures on them in order to bail out the international bankers, as supported by politicians and governments throughout the European Union.

The Greek people are showing the way forward.  Tell the capitalist bankers and their politicians to fuck off.  Let us demonstrate in solidarity with our Greek brothers and sisters.

Assemble in Old Market Square, Nottingham at 18.00 onwards on Tuesday, 14th. February.  We will:

1. Express our militant solidarity with the Greek people.

2. Demand that the Con/LibDem Goverment abandon their austerity programme.

3.  Demand that Labour Nottingham City Council ditch their cuts budget.

4.  Hold an open democratic forum to discuss how we can effectively deal with our home-grown oppressors and exploiters in Britain.

Are you up for it?  Spread the word, inform your contacts. Bring banners, placards,etc.. Be there.

Final chance to save our UK squats

12-02-2012 20:55

It is time for squatters to act NOW to save squatting with the House of Lords having their committee stage this Wednesday.


"The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill which includes Clause 130, added at the last-minute, to criminalise squatting in residential buildings is currently passing through the Lords," said Squash on its website


"The bill is at the committee stage, which means the Lords will gradually read through every clause in the Bill, and discuss any amendments to each clause. Any Lord can join the debate, and any Lord can table an amendment. Every amendment will be discussed.

"Unlike MPs, Lords don’t have constituents. This means that anyone is allowed to contact any Lord – but it’s not always easy. We have produced a briefing for Lords, and have been busy contacting as many sympathetic Lords as we can lay our hands on.

"So far two amendments we support have been proposed by some Lords. The first, would strike the clause entirely and the second, tabled by John Mcdonnell MP and Homeless Charity Crisis previously in the Commons, states that any new law only covers residential property left empty for less than 6 months," said SQUASH.

We now need your help

If you can help us brief the Lords, email and we will send you our briefing, a template letter and details of a Lord for you to contact.

Please take a minute or three to fight for our freespaces. If only 1% of all UK squatters responded to this call we should have at least 300 people to change the Lords' opinions. Already some Lords have declared their support for squatting; it is time to show them they are not alone and we really care.

Dr Phil Hammond: 'Killing The Nation', Lansley & McKinsey Inject Poison Into NHS

12-02-2012 18:07

McKinsey is already benefiting from contracts worth undisclosed millions with GPs arising from the Bill. It has earned at least £13.8 million from Government health policy since the Coalition took office – and the Bill opens up most of the current £106 billion NHS budget to the private sector, with much of it likely to go to McKinsey clients.
