The newsfeed part of my journal. Good fun, but not valid for my main lj really. So I shifted it here. Innit.





This is my research, but on an lj for general amusement. A game, and also handy for looking stuff up on. I have got a Democracy Club profile as well, so being able to link to this is very useful. Well, if the govt have decided to actually listen then who am I to argue?

Benefits Deaths & Injuries. What I have at present.
valkyriechris
ctgsnewsfeed
Ok, let's get this into some kind of order.


When it comes to deaths we have the following: As of Nov 15. It was a hard fought battle to get this data.

I was forced to estimate the deaths when IDS tried to hide the data. That estimation was too high ( thankfully ) but it leaves A LOT of people in pain.

The Govt has now wilfully stopped recording the deaths.

We are condemned by both the UN AND Europe for our cruelty towards Benefits Users.

Charities still speak out now, but are facing new Laws stopping them from talking about it.

The sources of stress are here. The Stress Chambers. There is so much pain out there at present.


We did have a mention in 2 articles of nearly 1m extra Anti-depressant Prescriptions going to people on benefits; but both those articles have now been taken down. As such I do not know what the official 'injury count' is.

Anti-depressants are up A LOT out there. Low Pay Britain, Benefits Britain, poverty Britain, Food-bank Britain, the list goes on. That's a LOT of arguably-avoidable stress.

Victorian Diseases continue to return.


And now we have this:

Sanctions are REALLY messing up people's Mental Health.


This is linked to this story on how Talking Therapy will become available in Job Centers, and slowly compulsory in some cases.


Here's the problem. Much as a Gentle Nudge ( to quote the Tory MP Dr Wollaston ) is useful in the odd case, and 'compulsory' does happen on occasion in Mental Health Care & Support, this Govt simply doesn't do gentle. Victorian Diseases are coming back after all. That's not gentle is it? ( Obvious stuff ).

So...


How many Disabled or Unemployed people are now using Mental Health Support Services due to the system being too harsh? A serious question. I know that my ability to work has been reduced by this new system.

How many ill people are now being shoved into work, only to then relapse & have to be signed off again? Sanctions, and ESA-WRAG not being generous enough.

Apart from the lack of humanity in it ( it's truly psychopathic I assure you ) it's also financially wasteful.

Wasteful?

How are you supposed to get a job if your health has failed?

Starving your work-force will not get them into work. It never works that way. They break instead.

And then us #NHS have to dive in & patch them up; and they aren't paying Taxes at that point I assure you...


And the kids? Apparently they don't need help. They are now getting the same money as adults, even though said kids can't go out to get a job to top themselves up like us Adults can...



Basically it's still a mess out there.

My recommendations are here ( pre-Brexit, so lob an extra tenner a week on for current prices ), for those interested.



As for it being like 1930's Germany out there here is a list of the Legal Changes so far that have taken us to such a low.

The Tory War on The Young. Updated > 2017.
valkyriechris
ctgsnewsfeed
Right, this one...


As of 18/6/17:

Number of Nippers on Antidepressants in England rises by 12%.

As the race hate & skill shortages continue I hasten to add. IDS et al did this.

IDS may have championed Broken Britian, but he did not repair it. Those locations remain run down. Instead he let the race hate rise, whilst cutting education ( and, as such, life chances ). It's like he wanted a major BNP out-break ( I know, quite the coincidence that ).




Up to 20/7/16: As I'm sure you know dear reader I have been tracking what The Torys have been doing regarding kicking the living daylights out of our kids.


Firstly we have the job-centre failures here.


Now let's factor in how well The Old are doing Financially, but... Let's look at how they vote Specifically.

Specifically the approximate-75% of that Baby-boomer Vote that Votes Tory and has genuinely NEVER helped a younger generation. In fact they've happily asset-stripped the Youth to line their own pockets, which is a disgusting act.



The crunch is that 2008 changed everything. The massive increase in debt has made the Old Ways ( Low Taxes for the Rich. The Baby-boomer Way ) unaffordable. we need more Tax money coming in, or we lose key services. And tax take at present remains too low.

When you spend more than you Tax you sink into debt; and yes, the Baby-boomers have done this before.

We also know that Osborne's Recovery ( 2010 to 2016 ) was carried by Consumer Borrowing, not wage rises. So it was also unaffordable.


So far so 'oh dear gods what are they doing?' It is the Baby-boomers that are doing this I assure you. A good 75% of them vote Tory, and they have wrecked the place for 30 years now.

There's a point where you have to say no.


So, well, yeah.


So let's look at millennial life. Croydon MHF did do some work on it before a bad manager tried to censor us ( I resigned in protest due to this dodgy Censorship ). These were our findings, and it does read bad for Ze Kids.

And all of that stress, due to the neglect being carried out against Ze Kids, IS messing up their health.

I don't doubt that 1 or 2 nippers needed a boot up the bum ( kids are kids after all ); but this current wave of violence ( deliberate neglect. from 2010 to 2016 ) from Govt towards the next generation of Taxpayers is...



There is no denying that we have a major War On The Young going on. As the Baby-boomers sit their ignoring the cries of help from their own kids and grand-kids ( which is rather extreme, let's face it ).

Are you seriously telling me that you did not tell mum / gramps about how rough life is these days? If you did tell them then, well, it looks like they do not care about you...



So the clinchers are thus:

The Torys ( specifically ) carried by only the Baby-boomers ( everyone (2012) else hates them (2016) ) have done the following:

- Spent 30 years asset-stripping more and more of The UK to bribe the Baby-boomers into carrying them. Hence why only the baby-boomers like them.

- Have taken away our kids Education Support on a truly grand scale; burying said kids in debt, & damaging their health due to this new debt-stress.

- Have left our kids with nowhere to live. The adventure my generation had in places like Student Housing is now more & more unachievable for this current batch of nippers.

- Transferred a ton of our cash to foreign climbs, where it will never be spent again ( the Cayman Islands being a prime example ).


So there you have it. A whole Generation robbed now, and half a Generation robbed in my day; so that is 1.5 generations now robbed in total; all to feed the greed of the Baby-boomers, and the Rich that said Baby-boomers decided to side with.

The Baby-boomers started this, with their lack of interest in the concept of Finite Resources; and they are the ones that have to lose, or our country will have a permanently-poorer future...



So let's get some key facts in at this stage:

- UK Inequality has been condemned by The UN.

- The Millennials, as well as having nowhere to live, are on genuinely-lower wages compared to the Baby-boomers when they were young.

- The Millenials are being crushed by dishonestly-high Rents ( Generation Rent ), to the point where they can't save for their older age ( by investing in Bricks & Mortar like the Baby-boomers could ). Look at how much more they have to pay out in Rent compared to their parents.


The Youth are GENUINELY being asset-stripped by the Elderly. It's real. And the price of this Asset-strip is an increasingly-low-skill Next Generation of Taxpayers, which trashes the countries' future with all of the debt we're now stuck with.

And it's all because Granny did not want to pay Tax. Oh, and Granny doesn't like foreigners either. And Granny doesn't even like her kids.

So why celebrate granny?


I'm quite serious. How else do you kick back when they have the power, money, Law, & property? You have to refuse them access to grandkids and the like. Leave them utterly alone sitting on their piles of hoarded wealth.

They chose to burn you to get Rich. Are you going to reward them for that behaviour?



In fairness I will mention this Tory Project. The Youth Offer on Apprenticeships ( kicks in in 2017 ). But...

If it is too small ( as there is not enough Tax Money coming in to pay for it ) then a huge tranche of kids will remain without help.



This is why I am a Lefty. The more you see the more Left-wing you become. We have to Tax The Rich to get the cash needed to pay for rescuing our kids from this evil Baby-boomer-Tory alliance.

Most Rich people can't leave...

It's the only way left to us now. All other options have been exhausted. As has our balance sheets in carrying these dodgy Shareholders.

Once again the Baby-boomers have taken us to a major debt crisis ( first time being in the 1970's ) with their greed & laziness.

Why Corbyn will fail in 2017.
valkyriechris
ctgsnewsfeed
Needless to say: if I am wrong I will look like a right muppet, but that is Politics for you.

Moi?

I feel Corbyn will fail.

In fact I need him to fall. And fall hard.




It hasn't escaped my attention that some of my stuff has made it to cabinet and shadow-cabinet levels. Much as this is a compliment I am now keeping to my anti-Corbyn line. Why?

Credibility.


There are a number of major social trends going on at present.

1) The rise of the youth vote, still in their Green Party & SWP dreams. This is useful, but not big enough yet.

2) The Senile Vote of the Baby-boomers is getting more and more short-sighted as their faculties fail. Hence why so much racism is now openly spoken. They are big enough to affect govt too, and are VERY stubborn in how they operate. They will do something ghastly just to Tax Dodge. They already have.

3) Generation Rent still isn't big enough to tip the scale. We're getting close now, but we're not there yet. Not enough people are suffering yet.



Generation Rent are those who have lived it. From my age down they always end up with nothing; and they are gonna have to seize assets to protect themselves in their Old Age, as they have had zero options to build up savings and equity to do it so far ( and time is running out if you are 40 years old like I am ).

So Generation Rent will have to Tax The Rich just to survive. A 'safety' is already in play here, but it is not big enough yet.


The nippers? They'll calm down a bit as they get older, and they'll get smarter in their politics. For now I'm happy to leave them to it ( I'm ex-Green after all ).


The Baby-boomers? Yup, still the barrier.

Basically we need to split the Baby-boomers in 2. Only about 30% of them vote Lefty, and in a world of FPTP that just isn't enough. So...


There are 2 major groups in the Baby-boomers I know of. The 70-75 crowd ( well into old age. Health declining, and NHS usage up A LOT ), and the 60-65 crowd ( recently retired. Still hanging in there. Just GP users mostly ).

If the 70-75 crowd have to pay through the nose, because the State is too small to cover them, then that might wake up the 60-65 crowd as to recognising the need to repair The State.

What you also have to remember is that said Baby-boomers are all 'market types'. They like choice.

So...


How do you reverse a privatisation? Replace the iffy Shareholder-laden company with one that is in a much better place debt-wise ( like a Co-Op ). It's not Labour's Clause 4 'buy-back' agenda, as that would massively ramp up the already-back-breaking debt we have. It's the Co-Op Revolution.

Over the next 5-10 years services will reach a 1980's level of low. And the numbers of poor people will grow, and said poor people will get VERY jealous of the rich people.

So there will be two major desires showing up. Desires for...: Better incomes ( including better Benefits for those injured ). And also better Services ( including Social Housing ).

And the Baby-boomers will be dying off.


At the same time the Torys will have sat there for ages saying that people have to make do with less, whilst the Torys themselves roll with cash in front of said now-poor people. A clear double-standard.


And that is Labour's path back to power. As the pensioners die off those in pain, because of what said pensioners did, will need a rescuer. A Housing leader, a Europe leader ( as the rise in prices due to Brexit going bad will have stung A LOT of people ), a Medical leader, and a Services leader.

And the Rich will be hated by then, as said Rich will have lied so often that no-one will ever trust them again. So they will become VERY tax-able. Which pays for the repairs.

Blair 2.0. Possibly a Woman, who knows.



But...



To get this Blair 2.0 in place as quickly as possible, to minimise the pain for people like me, we need that person on the campaign trail now. Building trust.

Corbyn has waded in, fired on the Army ( a national religion ), fired on Blair ( who gave a lot of people help ), and is also trying to cosy up to gay-bashing Putin.

He is hated because of that. Only the core vote of Labour will back him. Us Swing Vote will not back him.

I know Sarah Jones is a good candidate, but Corbyn is so extreme that any small victory will be used to keep him in place ( yes, Momentum is that dodgy ). So Corbyn must not have any victories.



So I need Corbyn to lose hard. Scorched-Earth hard. So that his fanatics have literally no ammunition to work with. So that he can be ousted quickly.

So that Blair 2.0 can start grinding away at the stubborn-ness of this Baby-boomer vote. The sooner Blair 2.0 gets into play the sooner this Big Grind against the stubborn-ness of the dominant vote ( the Baby-boomers ) can begin.



It is about shaming. That's how you beat stubborn. You make sure that they can see the ruin they created, and just keep doing it until they play the damn game again. Like putting a cat's nose in it's poop when it refuses to use the litter tray. You just keep shaming them. With more and more of us looking at them with hatred in our eyes.

They'll break. As their numbers die off, and more and more people at street level grow to hate them.

They started it when they chose to do something ghastly 35 years ago, and we are left with the debt they created. So we have to Tax the Rich. Which means we have to get those Baby-boomers to change.

And we need people realising that this has to happen. Hence why the 70-75 year old crowd need to take a big hit, so that the 60-65 crowd wake up to the mistakes being made. We need these people to wake up from their ridiculous day-dreams.


People who, so far, still think that mass-scale Tax Avoidance works; because it did for them personally, and they do not care about anyone else. Severe levels of stubborn-ness and selfish-ness are what we are up against.

So we ARE talking about grinding them down. And scaring them too. And it is going to take time.



Which is why you have to offer Socialism-lite at first. Corbyn is trying to change too much too quickly. The people of the UK have never really gone with fast change.

Offer a fixed up Social Care, paid for by Taxing the Rich. The stuff of Ed.

Offer a repaired NHS, paid for by Taxing the Rich. Ed again.

Offer an expansion in Social Housing, paid for by... Guess.

Make sure the Army is properly looked after. Paid for by...?

Mansion Taxes. The 50p rate. All the stuff of Ed. And it's small steps. With time maybe the 60p rate might be an option too. When people have seen that small amounts of Taxing The Rich can work.


Do you see what I mean? It's all paid for by Taxing The Rich. Leaving us mere mortals in a better place. But it has to be done slowly, as said Baby-boomers have a habit of siding with The Rich as they try to dodge their Care Fees & Inheritance Tax. You have to show the older vote that 'little bits of Socialism are ok'.

Socialism-lite. Ed's turf. Not Corbyn's Socialism-max.



And Corbyn is a stubborn old man too. He doesn't do the right thing. He's a Careerist, who plays the Far Left to get his votes. Hence why he didn't resign after losing Brexit for his party ( the biggest vote in a generation ); and also why he is sorting out a safe seat for his son. He's just another MP on the rob for personal gain. Nothing more.

Oh, and he's a Brexit-eer.

And his fanatics are also stubborn. So they will need to see him crash and burn badly, so that they are forced to wake up.



2017 needs to be lost badly, so that 2022 can be a glimmer of hope.

Sometimes you have to lose to win.



As the Baby-boomers die off Generation Rent will just get bigger and bigger; and that will be the game changer.

Forcing the 60-65 years old crowd to wake up, by letting the 70-75 years old crowd fall, will speed this process up a bit.

The Young will join Generation rent, bolstering their numbers.

But it has to be Ed's line. With patience behind it. 5-10 years of patience.


Not the rush-job that is dodgy old Corbyn.

Election Time. Election 2017.
valkyriechris
ctgsnewsfeed
So here we go.


Around here The Greens are corrupt. Esther turned a blind eye to significant violence, and Shasha is so incompetent he is now ass-deep in debt because he picked a Legal Battle he could not win.

So they are stupid. Not really Govt material.


Labour also turned a blind eye to Esther's iffiness, and are now declaring for Brexit. Corbyn. The Rich Boy Career Politico who used the Far Left to turn the Moderates of Ed Miliband into the Brexit-eering nutters of... Well, the local nutters.


The Torys? Tax-dodging corrupt disability-bashing Brexit-eers.


Who is left?


Lib-Dems? Bingo.


Croydon does need change. The same-old same-old has brought this place to ruin. Plus we need to stay in Europe to stop the English Voters from doing the evil things they do. I had high hopes for Croydon Labour. But it was the same faces as 2005, and they had not learned a thing since then. And... Then Corbyn was forced on us. And I left Labour.

I'm a Co-Op kinda guy, because I don't do Shareholders. But with Labour as badly compromised as it is these days I have no choice but to Protest Vote.

I'll be voting Lib-Dem. Tactically. To send a rocket up Corbyn's ass.


I think we need some new blood going into the veins of Croydon Politics; and getting a Lib-Dem presence going in Croydon may well shake things up enough. If the 48% back them then that will be a big change in dynamic for Croydon ( and you know full well that Croydon needs change ).



The Polls? When averaged they are accurate. And so far we have the following:

Here are the 2010 Polls. Torys have the lead, but not by enough. Labour in second, with the Lib-Dems 3rd. The Coalition then happened. So the Polls were accurate.


Here are the Polls for Election 2015. A slight lead to the Torys, that translated into the slight majority ( 12 seats ) Theresa May has at present.


Here are the latest Polls on Corbyn. A complete & utter collapse for Labour, due to massive SWP & Green Party sabotage of Ed's work.


We need Ed back. But until it happens we need to think tactically. I'd rather have Tory-lite in Europe ( the Lib-Dems ) than Tory-max outside of Europe's restraint ( the Torys ).

Corbyn is not even worth looking at. And can't possibly win. So we are looking at Tory-lite in Europe or Tory-max outside Europe. Blame the baby-boomers ( they have forced this on us ), but even so; that's your choice.



So, decision made. Lib-Dem it is. Protest Vote sure; but it's still a declaration for Europe, instead of *spit* England.


The Lib-Dems took a beating at Election 2015. They know that helping the Torys again will be suicide for them.


The Plan. I have always said that I am swing vote. I am loyal to policies & principles, NOT croneys & manipulators.
