    I want to recommend “Pablo’s” latest posting:


    Labour-led government take note: some well expressed advice even if the post relates to the Trump administration.

    Yeah, its overseas. But Snowden tweeted for help for the refugees who took him in

    I have been waiting for some here to speak about the Government’s moves to give equity to mental health workers and those employed in the addictions field.

    Better pay may attract more to this important work. Gradually, bit by bit the Coalition is improving things, giving hope to the workforce and more certainty to clients and patients.

    Winston has come out with a strong position on housing, people will recognise what he speaks about. Many want reasonably price homes for their children, along the lines of modest well built homes with loans at reasonable rates, a worker can afford. (Something they had when young).

    The response from the right inferred if we didn’t keep up the previous housing ponzi scheme, there would no work for the workers. They actually believe that!! How sad.. Never mind evidence of increasing homelessness, 21 million paid for J. K”s house. IThe ponzi scheme was useful to him at least!!

    Twyford is getting on a roll, and as I said in another post…. suddenly fruits of this will be evident for all to see.

    The extra work place inspectors and a receptive Government and Union work has seen many getting back unpaid holiday pay. Some receiving seven thousand in repayments. What a financial “pot of gold” that could be? I am happy for them. New glasses? Teeth? Tyres? Food? Those knowing you have shortchanged your workers,, Pay Up!!

      Yes Patricia and Phil Twyford is on a roll and is making Judith Collins look like the cheap shot queen of the National opposition in the house. Simon Bridges recent dalliance with comic shock jocks has shown the twat he is while on the other hand his deputy has at least mastered the art of eyebrow raising, eye rolling and lip-sync during question time.

    • marty mars 3.2

      Yes the move to equity for mental health support workers is long overdue and much appreciated. As a person who does this job the increase is modest but every little bit counts.

      This is all good but I often wonder if the same were called on to pay up after 3 decades of their neo liberal party at the expense of the rest of us that they wouldn’t go bankrupt.

      It is a good start this coalition is affecting,… but the pressure is on. People will no longer suffer the fall out of three decades of neo liberalism and its shafting of those most vulnerable.

      It is a time of the opening of the books.

      Natural justice demands this.

  4. Hmmm… that photo…being left alone on a planet with THOSE men…

    • tc 4.1

      Who’s the bloke on the positional left in the pic as obviously being grouped with specimens like Farage/Johnson/Gove he’s not politically left/socially responsible/good for the wider UK.

      Can’t place him.

      • Cemetery Jones 4.1.1

        Jacob Rees Mogg?

        • tc

          Cheers CJ, yup that’s him, Ben Chu of the independant sums him up…

          ” No one would ever accuse Jacob Rees-Mogg of being up to date. But that applies as much to the Tory backbencher’s politics as his Edwardian dress sense. “

    The housing issue can indeed be solved by moving away from a bubble speculative & post modern property neo-liberal economy ( which is being bought up by foreign interests anyway )

    There are therefore multiple alternative feasible & complimentary approaches.
