We have yet to read Owen Jones’ “The Establishment… And how they get away with it“, although Russell Brand’s take of the author has certainly piqued our interest: ”Owen Jones may have the face of a baby and the voice of George Formby but he is our generation’s Orwell and we must cherish him.” We do know, however, that the young author and Guardian columnist is one of those who are not afraid to think critically while accepting there is far more than meets the eye, and certainly than the controlled media would like revealed. To wit, from the book’s official blurb:
Behind our democracy lurks a powerful but unaccountable network of people who wield massive power and reap huge profits in the process. In exposing this shadowy and complex system that dominates our lives, Owen Jones sets out on a journey into the heart…

I’ll make no bones about it – I flippin’ adore Mr Sanders and absolutely learn something new from him every time I see him online.
If you are at all interested in how we, the masses, are so easily controlled by the few, then Neil has a hard hitting yet truly understandable way of putting it.
I like his faux ‘salesman’s pitch’ style on this video.
I must get to the next Alternative View Conference – such interesting speakers and subjects.
Thanks to Elissa for this. I’m so glad that my e mail offering my services as a volunteer for the People’s Voice was ignored. As was my donation – a thank you would have been nice…seems there was a long line ahead of me…!
Yep – you read that right!
When I was nine years old (back in 1989) I was lucky enough to visit Turkey with my Mum.
We spent three weeks with her friend from Uni. It was amazing.
Sadly, I didn’t get on with the food very well. This was the first thing I ate in a café in Istanbul. I couldn’t finish it – to my young brain it was just too ‘strange’.
In my mind, a milk sweet blancmange with chicken was a distant memory…one that I was a little unsure of. Surely I’d made it up in my head.
Alas, no! It DOES exist! Amazing :)
Last Monday, five people killed themselves on the railway tracks. A mother and child also took their lives in this way, this week. This isn’t a national scandal – not as far as the media is concerned.
‘According to Network Rail’s 2014 Annual Report, 286 suicides took place on our railways in the last year.’

Rest in peace.

A nationwide investigation into online paedophilia has netted more than 25,000 people suspected of viewing child abuse images in Britain.
Operation Notarise has led to 660 arrests. However, the National Crime Agency says that it will never be able to pursue all of those caught up in the inquiry. “There will always be more people than we are able to investigate at any one time,” a spokesman said. “We cannot arrest our way out of this.”
The true scale of the inquiry, which began this year, can be disclosed as the agency faces pressure from politicians over its record on dealing with online child abuse.
Last week it emerged that a hospital doctor and a deputy head teacher were left free to commit sex offences for more than a year after the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP), which is part of the…
