My bad. I only heard about the SWP rapes on here. I didn't know that the DM had covered the story. Thanks for the link(s).July 13, 2014 at 1:04 pm in reply to: Tasteless, inane and disgusting: Family friend slams Left-wing paper for mocking death of Eton pupil mauled by a polar bear #102393
Vin, I did wonder that Fair point.July 13, 2014 at 12:31 pm in reply to: Tasteless, inane and disgusting: Family friend slams Left-wing paper for mocking death of Eton pupil mauled by a polar bear #102391
The newspaper, that the current owners, great grandfather supported the Nazi's. The newspaper, that is anti-semitic. Where is the DM apology? I think it is the case here, that yet again the DM, has sort to attack genuine Socialism. Partly the reason for making this post.I notice unlike us, the DM, takes no interest whatsoever of the rape of a member(s) in the SWP, and subsequent cover up, by the leaders. When the thread about the SWP and rape of a member(s), was made,( 'swp not welcome'') no such concern was voiced about wide spread hunger and starvation of children?I'm not sure about this?
Nazi military leader Hermann Göring blamed everybody but himself too, at his trial at the Nuremberg Trials for War crimes.I have seen the images of the killing of Iraqi Government solders, and I watched a video posted on the Web, of a handful of caputured Iraqi soldiers being excuted, by ISIS militia.I know that this video has upset lots of people on social media. I was kind of wondering what (my) Socialists response should be?May 30, 2014 at 8:12 pm in reply to: “Am I the only one who doesn’t dislike Tony Blair” ‘unquote’ #101647

A couple who won £161m on the Euromillions lottery have given a further £2.5m to the Scottish independence campaign in the past year.Yes Scotland figures show Chris and Colin Weir each donated £1.25m, after a £1m donation the year before. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-27361509
I'd rather not repeat it here. Facebook.
I was called a member of the "….. party of …. …." by the Militant member (who has their logo as his profile picture) which is used by as a term of abuse trots?! In reply, I said: to call someone a reformist was an insult once, not now, it's become a badge of honour"!I have pointed out in a few posts, their (Militant) utter dishonesty, in calling themselves the Socialist Party, when a Socialist Party already exists! Of course, and that they had nothing whatsoever to do with socialism!All good, I was a user on another site, and to mention Socialism, resulted in lengthy diatribes, on why millions die of starvation in Africa, and I could do nothing ever to change it?! From an angry elderly user. The site owners policy of mutual respect, no intectual abuse or personal insults, and no flaming, was ignored, with he's "old"? I did get a few posts in agreement.
The vacuous troll, also mentioned the IMF and Osborne.I looked it up on the BBC, and scanned the replies. I found this; the IMF failed to see the financial crisis in 2008. It didn't see the colllapse of Spain and Greece".
RNLI , this vacuous minded troll, claims it to be the "exception"? I also used the Olympics. I also said; "motherhood, as mothers are not paid", which he's ignored oddly? Apart from him, good general discussion. Got some good feedback. I have come across SPEW member, who doesn't "debate" but just claims; I"'m not a socialist"? Irony is lost on complete idiots. Ps, it went downhill after I posted the Joe Brand joke, about being asked to join the SWP(only in this instance, Militant, trots) , and saying: no thanks, I don't want a paper round". I was set upon by another SPEW member (friend?) who claims he isn't a member? Then attacked the me, for not being on the picket line, or where workers are? If instead of me, you put SPGB, If that wasn't a dead give away I don't know what is? Thank for your input.
Thanks for that AJJ.
Good topic. I posted this myself, elsewhere. I got back, IMF say that the UK economy is set to grow by 2.9%. That Osborne is doing something right?I also got a response, asking how working without wages, would work? I lost the will to live a bit….. Suffering from a head cold. As yet , I 've not responded. So some help would be appreciated. FYI, I got 350 views.April 1, 2014 at 6:39 pm in reply to: Unite’s Len McCluskey warns over Labour ‘defeat’ in 2015 #101203
C SLAPPER (Socialist Standard, March 1983) He is to Socialism what Groucho was to Marxism My wife Caroline put the Communist Manifesto in my Christmas stocking one year. I had never read it before and I found it offered the best possible explanation of what the world was about that I had ever read. It pointed out that the real conflicts in the world were not between black and white, men and women, Muslims, Christians and Jews, Americans, Russians and Chinese; it was about the conflict of economic interest between 95 per cent of the population of the world, who create the world's wealth, and the 5 per cent who own it. I think of Marx as a prophet: the last of the Old Testament prophets. And we should think of him as a teacher. Many political leaders, such as Stalin, have tried to steal him, but he is immune to that,because ideas survive without requiring the endorsement of kings, emperors, dictators or presidents. Karl Marx discovered it all long before I did, and I am very grateful to him
