Until the election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new Labour leader, none of the breakfast cereal packages on offer from any of the main political supermarket chains came even close to cutting the muster. They all had too many synthetic ingredients, fake sweeteners, toxic PFI debts. Not enough fresh, real political food, preferably organic. They claim to cut costs for the tax payer, but sometimes it is cheaper to pay a bit more for a better product.
‘Real Labour’ under Jeremy Corbyn (who as a vegetarian is obviously aware of the importance of ingredients), seems to be serious about throwing out the artificial additives and toxins in the political ‘junk food’ we have had to put up with for so long. They are even asking for ideas from their supporters!
The following ideas come from non-aligned think tank ‘The Committee On Preparing For The End Of Now Forever’:
Close the Banks
Close the banks, and repeal the slavery laws,
it’s your money and your life.
Close the banks, before they make summer too expensive,
before spring is extinct.
Close the banks, they are a Vampire Death Cult,
Drakula is alive and well, in a branch near you.
Close the banks, and ‘abolish capital punishment;
the people have always been punished by capital’.
Close the banks, ‘their’ capital is our time on earth,
the amassed toil of generations, stolen without pity,
we have enough laundries that don’t work.
Close the banks, the Politicians Pimps,
the Multinational Vandals,
the Stooges of the Rate of the Dollar.
They make deals with genocidal murderers.
Close the banks, and open your hearts!
The money has all gone, so join the real economy
and STOP THE CITY.
Close the Banks, this is one debt we owe ourselves.

London Tuesday 15th July 2010. A police helicopter has been buzzing my central London safe house for over an hour. Why don’t they use drones? It sounds like the the end of the world might be happening. I decided to follow the annoying flying beast. I soon came across a loud and energetic but peaceful demo outside the BBC HQ near Oxford Circus. It was about the ongoing Gaza/Israel atrocities which make my complaints about a mere police helicopter seem pathetic.
The large crowd was chanting “Shame On You” outside the BBC so loud shoppers could probably hear them in Top Shop. Apparently the organisers blame the BBC for not covering their last demo the previous weekend attended by thousands of people, and being biased in favour of Israel.
Although it is a great protest in support of the people of Gaza I am not sure the BBC really deserve this abuse. Personally I have found some of the BBC’s live reporting from Gaza to be excellent and certainly not all pro Israeli.
In fact, due to some of the BBC’s reporting from Gaza I expect the Israeli government and many Israelis would like to join in shouting “Shame On You” at the BBC along with the Palestinians. Maybe we can get them co-operating this way? Could this be the start of a Peace Plan? Not a chance in hell unfortunately.
