General Political Thoughts Thread


Recommended Posts

"Save Our Rights UK" have raised only 25% of the £15000 needed for their new project in just one weeks time (23rd October). Louise Creffield writes:

 

"The reality is simple – if we don't reach our target in these next 7 days, we won't be able to kick-start our initiative as we've envisioned. The goal we set isn't arbitrary; it's the threshold we need to create genuine change.

 

"Every donation, be it big or small, carries weight. We've had everything from £2.55 to £400 and it all makes a difference. We are so grateful!

 

"Each contribution reflects your belief in our cause, pushing us a step closer to our aspiration of transforming UK politics as we currently know it. Remember, it's not just about reaching a financial target; it's about what we can achieve together, united, with that backing.

Louise Creffield at "Save Our Rights UK" writes of their new campaign:

 

"What does our campaign stand for? Well how many of these do you agree with?

 

"Right and left are the same and are equal parts of the problem.

Net zero equals eco-fascism.

The systems are rigged against the people.

Our children's innocence is not being protected.

Our rights are being eroded.

Money overrules democracy.

We only have a faux democracy in the West.

Our NHS hinders true health.

Most of our foods and products are legally toxic.

We live in a surveillance state.

The people have the power.

It's time to unite."

 

"This is not an exhaustive list but covers a number of the issues that will be upheld during our campaign. When we say it is the campaign to end all campaigns we mean it."

Mr Putin's visit comes amid fears that China and Russia are building their own bloc to rival the West.

 

Both countries have publicly denounced the US-led "global hegemony" and have called for a "multipolar" world with more centres of power.

 

In the lead-up to the BRI's anniversary, China released two white papers positioning the BRI as the bedrock of a new world order, one that it casts as more just and inclusive.

The Guardian
"Major UK retail bosses plead for staff protection as ‘violent criminals empty stores’"

 

Sarah Butler
Sunday, 1 October 2023

 

"Almost 90 retail leaders, including the bosses of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Boots and WH Smith, have written to the government demanding action on rising retail crime, in which violent criminals are “emptying stores”.

 

"The retailers, who also include the bosses of Aldi, Primark and Superdrug, call for the creation of a new UK-wide aggravated offence of assaulting or abusing a retail worker – as already exists in Scotland – which would carry tougher sentences and require police to record all incidents of retail crime and allow the allocation of more resources.

 

"“The police consistently tell us that a lack of data about these offences means they have no visibility about the nature or scale of the issue,” the letter says.

 

"The 88 retail bosses have asked for a meeting with the home secretary, Suella Braverman, to discuss the issue after a meeting with the minister for crime, Chris Philp, led to the promise to develop an action plan.

 

"The call comes after retailers, including the Co-op and John Lewis, highlighted what they said was a worsening issue. A survey of members of the British Retail Consortium (BRC), which represents all the major chains, found levels of shoplifting in 10 of the biggest cities had risen by an average of 27% this year.

 

"Meanwhile, the police’s own data for one major retailer shows that forces failed to respond to 73% of serious retail crimes that were reported, while 44% of retailers in the BRC’s annual crime survey rated the police response as “poor” or “very poor”.

ITV broadcast a prime time "Tonight" documentary: "Shoplifting: the battle on the High Street?" (October 19th 2023). Not surprisingly, facial recognition technology was offered as a potential solution to the problem.

Save Our Rights UK have summarised the UK Govt's proposed Data Protection Act, with 5 main changes:

 

"Data Protection Act"

 

"Proposed Amendments"


"The new bill currently progressing through the UK parliament has raised significant concerns within the human rights community. We’ve dissected the main components of the bill to provide a clear and straightforward explanation of its implications. Here’s what you need to know:

 

1. "Increased Police Powers to Access Data:


What it Means: The police will have expanded authority to access personal data with the intent of apprehending individuals.
Significance for Human Rights: Such expansive powers can risk privacy infringements. Without strict oversight and clear boundaries, there’s potential for misuse, which can endanger the right to privacy enshrined in numerous international human rights treaties.
 

2. UK GDPR Changes via Statutory Instrument:


What it Means: Future changes to the UK’s GDPR laws can be made using a statutory instrument, a type of delegated legislation.
Significance for Parliamentary Protocol: Using statutory instruments means these changes can bypass the usual parliamentary scrutiny. For something as significant as data protection rights, this could lead to critical amendments being made without comprehensive debate or public consultation.
 

3. Secretary of State’s Power to Amend Primary Legislation:


What it Means: The Secretary of State can alter, repeal, or revoke provisions made by primary legislation using a statutory instrument.
Significance for Parliamentary Protocol: This concentrates significant power in the hands of the Secretary of State, bypassing the usual legislative processes. It undermines the principles of parliamentary democracy where primary legislation, representing major law changes, should undergo thorough review and debate.
 

4. Abolition of the Office of Commissioner for the Retention and Use of Biometric Material:


What it Means: The designated office responsible for overseeing the use and storage of biometric data (like fingerprints and DNA) will be eliminated.
Significance for Human Rights: Biometric data is among the most personal data individuals possess. Without an overseeing body, there’s a heightened risk of misuse or overreach, potentially infringing on individuals’ rights to privacy and protection from unlawful surveillance.
 

5. Abolition of CCTV Regulations:


What it Means: The specific regulations governing the use of CCTV will be removed.
Significance for Human Rights: With no clear regulations, there’s potential for unchecked surveillance. Unregulated use of CCTV can infringe upon the right to privacy, and without clear guidelines, there’s an increased risk of misuse or abuse.
 

"Thankfully this Bill is only at report stage so it allows us time to lobby MP’s and ask them to propose or support amendments to get rid of these parts of the Bill. If this Bill passes as is they are paving the way towards a surveillance state!

The question that should be asked here is whether there is any convergence between East and West, because Marxist-Leninists seem to be pushing woke crap in the West, and then pushing another flavour of Marxist-Leninism in the East as a solution.

'Communism is real. The communist bloc is real. The communist movement is real. Communist subversion is real. It is not some vague thing, like “the Illuminati” or an unnamed group'
