Ombudsman Green Light for Burying Complaints

02-02-2007 13:05

To All Concerned Indviduals, Parties, Allies and Ministers in UK, EU and Global World

This will impact on all disabled people, families and carers who complain about their care and social care and other professionals.

As I said the Disabled People's, Mental Health Survivors, NeuroDiversity, Independent and Inclusive Living, Wellness and Recovery, UN DisabilityConvention, Indymedia movements and networks and all other concerned individuals, parties and allies all need to 'join-forces' with Local Government OmbudsmanWatch to 'speak-out' out on this urgently.

The United Kingdom Disabled People's Council (formely BCODP) need to act on this information immediately, because it's disabled people and their 'behaviour' that will be targeted for continued 'Disablism' and 'Victimisation' by The Local Government Ombudsman (LGO)

Basic Income Strengthens Workers' Negotiating Power

01-02-2007 13:06

Basic income would be an effective instrument against the growing poverty, a kind of democracy package and a good vehicle for self-determined reduced working hours.. Some leftists have a hard time with the idea of basic income because they folow a certain work fetishism.

East End of London points the way to Blair to save any remaining 'honour'

31-01-2007 05:18

Just as the London Metropolitan Police were fielding [on Tuesday 30 January 2007] of the huge media questions over the latest arrest Blair-peer Levy in connection with the cash for sleaze system that keeps some in the UK Parliament’s upper chamber the so-called House of Pee-ers, a deputation of people from probably the poorest, the most deprived part of inner city England, arrived at No 10 Downing Street. The deputation delivered a hand written letter giving Blair probably the most valuable and crucial advice anyone had ever given him whilst he was still in occupation of the post that is identified with that address, to save his fast disappearing legacy.

Reality knocks, nobody Home!

31-01-2007 05:15

All demagogues and most politicians are familiar with the curious phenomenon of the diminished intelligence of a crowd relative to the mean intelligence quotient of all the individuals that comprise it! The level of intelligence of a crowd decreases as the size of the crowd increases. Less known, however, is the diminished ability of the crowd to act without the assistance of an orchestrater or conductor. In the face of the most heinous crimes, today’s populations are conspicuous by their complacency, silence and inability to act. The crowd waits patiently for an appropriate catalyst or activator to trigger an appropriate response.
