I Predict A Riot !!

David Cameron and his cronies are trying to reignite that old Thatcherite hot potato “The Poll Tax” although the cheeky monkeys are calling it a Council Tax Benefit reform, mixing it in with the Universal Credit but the outcome is more or less the same, an unjust tax benefiting the rich and demoralising the poor, this could also escalate into more job losses as the public sector has to find more and more money in order to meet the demands of the vulnerable and low paid who require assistance to pay their bills. Just as that cunt Thatcher did in the eighties Cameron and his Con-Dem lackeys are striving to follow in her footsteps to slash the state and privatise the public realm, did they not learn by their mistakes, the poll tax was her demise, remember it was only months after the riots that the wicked witch of the west resigned, so remember David, implement this tax and we will protest again, we will burn down more buildings, we will bring chaos to the streets, we will cause civil disorder, we will take vengeance on ANY of your sheriff officers who try and repossess our goods and more importantly we will win again.

Here’s the background on the proposed new tax, on average, households pay £1,000 a year in council tax. Until now, households on low incomes were exempt or paid only according to their means, so 5.9m households received council tax benefit. From next April, the benefit is cut by 10%, which is bad enough, but, then insanity takes over. Each local authority will be given the sum that was handed out in benefit in their area (less 10%) to disperse as they please. They must keep paying the full benefit to pensioners and “the vulnerable”. Each council must choose who is “vulnerable”, as the government refuses to provide its own definition. Half of the recipients are pensioners, so protecting them means all other low-income households bear the whole cut, averaging 20%. People who live in areas with a lot of pensioners or a lot of the “vulnerable” will suffer the biggest cuts, as much as 30% or more. Benefit expert Lady Hollis points out that if a factory closes and suddenly a lot more people claim council tax benefit, everyone else claiming council tax benefit in the district will have their benefit cut to accommodate the new claimants. It is, in effect, a lottery. Since the majority of the non-pensioner poor are in work, this hits the working poor hardest, adding to disincentives to work, when every extra pound they earn can see 95p in benefit lost. Sounds like a great plan David, where do we sign up, you fucking moron.

So break out the banners, print those leaflets, “Can Pay, Won’t Pay” and my favourite at the time, the succinct “Fuck The Poll Tax”, see you all on the frontline.

Diamond Geezer ?

As the Barclay’s bank interest rate rigging scandal enters another day, let’s have a look at the Chief Executive Bob Diamond, when he was questioned by the Parliamentary board yesterday he said he “was sorry”, what was that Bob, you’re sorry?, fucking sorry!. Sorry is a word that should be used when, you bang into someone by accident, when you forget you’re wife’s birthday/anniversary, when you hear of a death or when you don’t hear someone properly, not, and I repeat NOT when your responsible for cheating your customers and the country out of trillions, yes trillions of pounds, this requires more than a simple sorry.

Bob Diamond – One Sorry Fucker

 

Whether Bob is directly responsible or not is circumstantial, he was in charge of operations, the buck stops at him, he tells us that it was a few rogue trader that were responsible, well let’s get these fuckers names out there, oh, and pictures, we need to know who to give a kicking to when we see them in the street, Bob you need to show and tell my friend.

Now on the Parliamentary enquiry, David Cameron wants it to be a Government investigation leading to new legislation being put in place, and Ed Milliband wants a judges enquiry, while they argue, nothing is being resolved, if Cameron gets his way the legislation would come into effect next year, NEXT YEAR! way to get a fast resolution Dave, this gives these cheating fuckers a whole twelve months to lie and cheat their way out of the situation, although I don’t agree with Milliband, i do think that everyone involved should go through a criminal proceeding, we need these cunts to get some serious jail time, and not the Jeffrey Archer pussy prison kind, put them in Pentonville or somewhere similar that they will feel the wrath of the prison service.

This recent banking disaster further adds to the distrust of the whole banking system and the people that are responsible for running it, take heed Cameron and Co. we won’t take this shit for much longer, you’ve seen the riots of last year, every year you feel the wrath of the G20/Anti-Capitalist protests and their numbers are rising, one day will come when you can’t ignore it.

The banks are responsible for the economic crisis we have been subjected to, we are told that we all have to tighten our belts, we accept job losses daily, and we continually see the bankers get large bonuses and no redundancies, where’s the justice in that? Get a grip Cameron, control your rich cronies or pay the consequences, we will take to the streets and claim what’s rightfully ours.

‘Till the next time…….

Obama Announces US Deficit Cut Plans

President Obama yesterday announced plans to reduce America’s debt, this involves a controversial tax rise for the rich and wealthy and cutting Medicare health plans. President Obama said:

Obama Ponders, how to start the Class War

“the wealthy and corporations should pay their “fair share” to cut the deficit” he went on to add “Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires,” he said. “It’s hard to argue against that”

He finished of by saying “It’s not class warfare, it’s math.”

As much as I agree with what Obama is trying to do, I do disagree with his last statement, It’s not math, THIS IS CLASS WAR, it always has been and until capitalism dies, it always will be. Until we rid ourselves of the shackles of a grossly unfair monitory system we will always have differences in class structure, the “haves” will always taunt the “have Nots” and use them to fulfill their needs, without actually paying them what their worth, for the sole reason of “keeping them in their place”

Coming To A Street Near You !

Bit by Bit the working class will start to fight back, well, look at the recent riots in England, the rumblings are there and they will only get bigger, as will the Class War movement, we are sick to fucking death of the privileged classes shiting all over us, we used to disrupt the Henley Regatta’s in the 80’s, let me tell you it’s funny as fuck watching the uber posh running scared as we ran through their party, we likened it to their fox hunting, this was our version, only difference was we didn’t skin any fucker we caught. The rich put up with the working class so long as they can control them in an environment such as their kitchen, or cleaning for them, but god forbid we have any thoughts of our own and try and act on them, and boy do they get miffed when we gather in areas where they wish to congregate. We must devistate the avenues where the wealthy live.

This is Class War, we will take the power from you by any means necessary, it might take a while but we will win. Obama you’re heritage is being part of an oppressed race, the African-Americans, Chinese-Americans, and all other minority races in America are looking to you to change the status quo while you are in power, and, I do think that you are making a small step towards change, the Republicans don’t like your proposals and vow to stop any proposal you put forward, but I support what you are trying to do, any money taken from the wealthy cannot be bad.

Thatcher, How Long Will You Prolong Our Misery

It’s now 21 years since the wicked witch of the west resigned from power, 21 years waiting for this odious, obnoxious, repulsive, hateful human being to die, oh….. In case your not sure of who I’m talking about, well…… It’s Margaret Thatcher, there are not enough adjectives in the English language to describe my hatred of this woman.

20110901-012613.jpg

What has she done to deserve this, where do I start….. With the closure of the mining industry or the closure of the steel industry, or the introduction of the poll tax, allowing 3+ million people to be on the dole, the decimation of the NHS, I could go on but, I’ll get to more of them later.

We should have got an idea of how obnoxious this woman was when she was Secretary Of State for Education And Science in 1970 and decided to cut the schools budgets resulting in the children not receiving free school milk, and earning her the nickname ” Margaret Thatcher, milk snatcher” the first attack on the working class, and certainly not the last.

She became Prime Minister on 4th May 1979, then piece by piece she started to destroy the working class, the mining industry, the steel industry, and the Liverpool dockers were all attacked by her and the Conservatives, leading to major strike action, which ultimately resulted in the closure of numerous mines and steel plants and the decimation of communities that depended on those industries, she did not care about this because the banking and financial sector were doing very well, this is the introduction of the yuppie scum that have made the era of the eighties their own, these bastards bought up run down properties in working class areas renovated them, moved in and out priced the local inhabitants leaving them no option but to move away from their areas, this resulted in certain parts of London commanding prices of millions of pounds for properties that are worth, in reality, a fraction of the cost, resulting in the formation of Class War, a reactionary group led by Anarchist Ian Bone.

20110903-022614.jpg

Class War led the attack on the yuppies by graffiti attacks on properties within the new yuppie areas and also attacks on the properties themselves and vehicles, Porches were not safe. It was recorded that in the mid eighties that Class War had in excess of 50,000 “soldiers” who were ready to manoeuvre at any time. Class War’s tabloid paper sold in newsagents around the country and most major cities had their own local branch, Thatcher and her Tory party had started a mini civil war, and we weren’t finished. Riots were common place, the biggest of these in Brixton, Toxteth, Southhall and Handsworth, although smaller skirmishes broke out in Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol, Southampton and Edinburgh, the hatred was spreading. On the 12th October 1984, the Provisional IRA set off a bomb in a hotel in Brighton on the eve of the Tory Party conference, although she was shaken the bitch survived, 5 Tory Party members were killed and a number injured, but the main objective failed.

20110903-024421.jpg

The poll tax was the last straw for the public, this was first introduced in Scotland on the 1st April 1989, and the Scots quickly rose up against it, with a “can pay, won’t pay” campaign and a bash the bailiff mentality, the reason for this anger north of the border was it was only introduced in Scotland, and not England, we were not going to be guinea pigs for Thatcher and her cronies, and put up a reasonable fight, but only when she decided to introduce the tax south of the border did the fight really begin. On the 31st March 1990, 200,000 people marched through London in protest to the illegal tax, it set off at 12:00am by 1:30pm the police, overwhelmed by the numbers, moved the protestors quickly towards Trafalgar Square, but as the numbers swelled, Trafalgar Square was nearing capacity and this caused a bottleneck which meant that protesters were gathering outside Whitehall, the sight of Downing Street was all the protestors required, a few hardcore Anarchists took their chance and started splitting from the main protest to start their own protest, and the full blown riot ensued, named “The Battle of Trafalger” shops along Chelsea were vandalised, the obligatory attack on McDonalds burger chain, and South Africa House was petrol bombed for good measure, the police were given the runaround until 3:00am when the rioters went home. This was ultimately then downfall of Thatcher, who resigned in November 1990, 11 years after coming into power, 11 years of misery, poverty, and social deprivation.

So why do I hate Thatcher so much, well from the above it’s pretty obvious, but it’s more personal, you see I was a steel worker, my steel plant was the first to close in North Lanarkshire, I had already been on strike on two occasions to try and save our jobs, to no avail, the plant still closed. But away from that, I also felt compassion for my comrades in the mining industry who were going through the same as we were. She killed working class communities by the job losses in those areas, she killed pensioners who could not afford to heat their homes properly, or afford food, she killed young soldiers needlessly to fuel her power mad war in the Falklands, she gave no future to the youth leaving schools with no hope of employment, she left the country with over 3 million on the dole. Her decimation of available council houses to rent by her sell off, left millions without a hope of having a home to live in, unless they could afford to buy, even then her yuppie scum had forced the price of a descent house out of the grasp of normal folk. She widened the gap in the class structure, the rich got even richer and the poor got even poorer, 20 years on and the gap has not shortened, it is as bad as it was. Don’t get me wrong, the Labour party who took over from the Tories have done as bad a job, if not worse considering they should be looking after their own as it were, but the scale of depravation the Tory party put the country in was disgraceful.

20110903-020011.jpg

It has been suggested that we should have a state funeral for Thatcher on her death, well not in my name, or, with my tax pounds, this evil octogenarian should be left to rot in the gutter with the rest of the rubbish, but, on her death their will be parties up and down the country I’m sure, the main one being organised by Class War, the first Saturday after her demise, I also know that the Glasgow Anarchists have organised a get together in Glasgow Green. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long for these celebrations to rejoice in her shrugging off this mortal coil, we will be rid of the most evil person since Adolf Hitler, a truly obnoxious creature.

Trafalgar Square…… I’ll be there !

Profit – The Ugly Face Of Capitalism

The Post Office announced a loss this year of £140 Million, quite a loss but this is not really a loss because they have £39 Million profit, yup…. £39 Million profit, so not really a loss is it. You see that’s the problem with the Capitalist society today, we are supposed to believe that companies have made a loss and this has to be reflected in job losses……. bollocks, this is just to alleviate the guilt of management for laying off the workers.

Teachers, in England and Wales, voted this year to take strike action over pension cuts along with a 2 year pay freeze it equates to a 3% pension cut.

What do these two stories have in common, greedy bankers, that’s what, the so called losses and local authority cuts are to counteract the bank crash, now, have the banks cut staffing levels, have the banks announced losses, well with the exception of the Royal Bank Of Scotland, have the management taken pay cuts, have they declined bonuses ???? HAVE THEY FUCK, they continue to rape the poor and working class of this country to fulfill their greed, it is time we all stood together and vented our anger at not only the banks but the government themselves as it were they who “gave” our money away to the banks to bail out their incompetence, it is time for everyone to take a stance and let the Financial organisations know we will not put up with their greed any longer.

Need Not Greed, feed the hungry, house the homeless, look after the sick and infirm, is that not the basic rights we all should have being part of a democratic free country, well it would be if there was cash in it for the rich. No money ? Well fuck off, unless you can do something for it, lick some rich fuckers arse, then you can have a crumb, otherwise shut up and beg for a better life.

Break The Banks

With the recent theft of our taxes by the rich, and let us not forget that the people involved with this are extremely rich, bankers and financiers, to bail out their incompetence and fulfill their greed. It is time to hit back and hit back hard, what we must do is question every move they make question every transaction they make and stop using their services that produce profits for them, it will be only then that they will have to listen to us and we will retrieve the funds we generously gave them.

Write to your MP on a regular basis, a very regular basis, bombard your bank demanding to know what they are doing with YOUR money and then charge them for the the letter, remember the way they do with you, do not accept loans or credit from them, go to a local credit union to secure low cost loans take out interest free deals for products you require just don’t use the banks and big financial organisations for these services, let’s together run them out of town and show them we won’t put up with their greed any longer.

Here is a breakdown of where OUR money has gone:

The commitments include buying £76bn of shares in Royal Bank of Scotland and the Lloyds Banking Group; indemnifying the Bank of England against losses incurred in providing more than £200bn of liquidity support; guaranteeing up to £250bn of wholesale borrowing by banks to strengthen liquidity; providing £40bn of loans and other funding to Bradford & Bingley and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme; and insurance cover of over £280bn for bank assets.

In a report, the National Audit Office ruled that the “unprecedented” £850bn of support for the banks was “justified” to head off the potential damage of one or more of them going bust, and preserving people’s savings and confidence in the financial system.

“Justified” your having a fuckin’ laugh of course we’ve lost confidence in the banking system in as much as we would lose confidence in a baby sitter if they were to kill your child whilst in their care. It’s possibly time we let the fuckers go under, let’s face it capitalism is dying in front of our eyes, let’s give it a decent burial and soon before they bring the rest of us down with it.

Banking is a business just like any others, unless your one of the wealthy that have shares in one or more or actually own it, then it becomes a priority to keep it running, did any one give a fuck when Woolworths bit the dust, or Borders, Habitat, Focus DIY, Oddbins or Pontin’s, did they fuck, sell the resources and get on with it, but god forbid a bank goes under, we are told that if any of the large banks went under then it would be a crisis form the country as our economy relies on these financial organisations to keep the country afloat, bollocks, a country relies on it’s inhabitants to run it, inhabitants like me and you, we are the ones working our fingers to the bone, creating the wealth for these cunts to play monopoly with in the stock market, then, when they fuck up it’s put the hat round and give us more money to play with, well for me it’s a big FUCK OFF, to them. If any of us messed up in our jobs then we would pay the ultimate price in losing our jobs, why should they be any different. It’s time we ran down the avenues where the wealthy live and burn their shit down.

London’s Burning – A Riotous Retrospective

So it’s nearly the weekend, seven days since the riots in London began, and as the Londoners start the clear up maybe it’s time to clear up why this has happened.
Various politicians, tabloid and television media and social commentators of the day are all using the same old platitudes, boredom, bad parents, poverty, bad education, gang culture …. etc. well, you get the idea.
So it’s time for me to pitch in with my tuppence worth.
Firstly, the Politicians, there’s an old saying regarding stones and glass houses, please stop throwing stones, if you did not allow the bankers to play the biggest game of Monopoly with our money, this could have been avoided, if you had not stolen tax payers money, then denied any wrong doing, then this could have been avoided, if you persist with your lies and creating a “them and us” society then this will happen again. Cameron and Clegg have been speaking to the media and call for the public not to link these riots to the recent employment cuts, how stupid do they think we are? Of course they’re linked, the public have less jobs, even less money, thanks to the cuts and the bailouts, this all equates to a disenchanted angry public who will vent their anger at some point.
Also the Police need to have a look at how they handle situations like this, the Police force was set up to protect the public, these days they are there to protect the corporations, businesses and the rich, they can dress what they do up by explaining that they were protecting the community….. Bollocks, it was shown on TV they stood around watching shops, houses and cars burning without so much as a move to assist, the blame for the uncontrollable mob lies as much with these cowards as it does with the morons who took part in the riots and burned down their own communities, but more on them later, The Metropolitan Police force motto is “Working Together For A Safer London”, what they seem to have missed out is the ending which should be… “If You Can Afford It” they patrol the avenues of the rich, the rest of London can FUCK OFF.
Now on to the actual rioters themselves, now if the initial reports are to be believed then this started as a legitimate protest at the shooting of Mark Duggan, and the public have a right to do this, we do after all live in a democracy, remember, the same democracy we want to sell to the savages in the East who would benefit from our freedom, yes you do detect a bit of sarcasm there, but after the small amount of people who wanted to protest their anger at one of their community getting shot, their protest was mugged by some folk who were out to cause chaos and do no more than profit from the ensuing confusion. If the riots were directed at the Police, Banks, or Government buildings then I would have given it my full support, but as the pictures showed the rioters were only out to profit for themselves at any cost. But let’s analyse what actually caused this, the UK now is a country with high socio-economic inequality and high youth unemployment, coupled with the global economic crisis is it any wonder that tempers are fraying, this has little to do with a gang culture that is being blamed it is solely to do with a mass culture of profit, greed and consumerism, this is what we’ve been sold as the “perfect life”.
This is a global class war driven by bailing out the rich and shafting the poor, If these cunts treat us like pricks, then let’s fuck them good and proper, expect more rage and more violence but let’s vent it at the people responsible and not in our own communities and on our own people.
