David Miliband: The least bad option

David Miliband: The least bad option

first_img Share David Miliband: The least bad option ONE of the stories of the summer has been just how far the Labour party is moving to the left, as its leadership candidates appeal to grassroot members and trade unionists angry at the perceived betrayals of the Blair years. With the coalition’s honeymoon long since over, and the Lib Dems’ popularity in freefall, who takes over the Labour Party is a critical issue for Britain’s aspirational classes, including readers of this newspaper, as well as for London’s financial and business community. It is in this context that I recommend our interview with David Miliband on p17 – as well as our preview of Tony Blair’s explosive memoirs (see p3 opposite), where he decries his party’s return to hard-core statism.By the standards of the pre-recession economic debate, Miliband, who together with his brother and arch-rival Ed is one of the frontrunners for the leadership, is way to the left; yet in today’s anti-capitalist political atmosphere, he sounds almost (though not quite) centrist, the closest thing Labour has to an heir to Blair. He believes in some supply side reform of public services, hinting that Michael Gove, the Tory education secretary and one of the coalition’s few truly radical reformers, hasn’t gone fast enough with his support for academies. He backs Alistair Darling’s deficit reduction plan, which would halve it in four years; other candidates, including Ed Miliband, are dangerously equivocal on the matter. Like Blair, David Miliband understands that if Labour is to have any chance of winning again, it needs to appeal to the hard-working, struggling, striving middle classes won by Blair but lost by Gordon Brown. His brother Ed, by contrast, believes in returning the party to its “roots”, a neo-socialist strategy which would be electorally disastrous (especially in the private sector-dominated parts of England) as well as economically and financially destructive to the whole of the UK. Blair is right to argue in his memoirs, out today, that the previous government “could have gone on, had it not abandoned New Labour”; the only candidate who gets this, however incompletely, is David Miliband.So much for the goodish news. It remains unlikely that Miliband has the stomach for proper reform of public services – or, for that matter, for any other positive action. He is to the left of Brown’s government, and hugely to the left of Brown’s 1997 incarnation. We gave him ample opportunity during our interview to take positions to the right of the coalition on the 50p income tax rate or on returning capital gains tax to the 18 per cent it was under Labour. He wouldn’t bite. In truth, all of the Labour candidates are flawed. But anybody who cares for the future competitiveness and prosperity of this country should be hoping David Miliband becomes the next Leader of the Opposition. He is the least bad candidate – and that, after all, isbetter than nothing.KEYNES IS STILL DEADAnybody who still believes in Keynesian economics – and is therefore unduly worried about the UK’s public spending cuts – should take a look at Germany and America. The former, which at the height of the recession rejected demands by Gordon Brown to spend uncontrollably, is booming. The latter, under arch-Keynesian Barack Obama, is under-performing severely, despite (or because of) its massive budget deficit. Ever larger amounts of state spending is the problem – not the [email protected] KCS-content Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsUndoThe Sports DropForgotten College Basketball Stars: Where Are They Now?The Sports DropUndoAll Things Auto | Search AdsBuick’s New Lineup Is Truly StunningAll Things Auto | Search AdsUndoLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsUndoStudent SeaHilariously Relatable Family Photo FailsStudent SeaUndoThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramUndo whatsapp Tuesday 31 August 2010 9:34 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Best Tries of the Top 14 – Round 20

Best Tries of the Top 14 – Round 20

first_imgTuesday Mar 27, 2012 Best Tries of the Top 14 – Round 20 Time for some quality tries as we catch up on the best from the Top 14 for Round 20, which took place a couple of week’s back. As always there’s a whole lot of talent on show and some amazing tries that are well worth sitting still for eight minutes for. Shortly after it took place we featured the Toulouse vs Castres highlights here on the site. The game was a classic and went right down to the final few minutes of play, as Toulouse snatched the win with a late try by number eight Gillian Galan.In this compilation, as made by Canal+ as always, some of the best tries from that game are featured, including the winning effort by Galan, and another great one scored by Florian Fritz.When Stade Francais played Lyon, the final score was 41-19 to the hosts and some excellent tries were scored, including two for Djibril Camara, and a fantastic effort from former England winger Paul Sackey. Remi Grosso’s try for Lyon in the same game was also great to see.The try of the round, or at least the best solo effort anyway, went to French winger Yoann Huget, who scored a length of the field effort in Bayonne’s 37-26 loss to Montpellier. After beating the first line of defence with a lovely run and chipping the cover, it looked as though he’d run out of out of gas but a loose bit of defending and a good tackle allowed the ball to pop free and Huget to finish off a brilliant, determined, solo try.Did they get the order correct?

This Way Up launch unusual annual report for charity

first_imgThis Way Up launch unusual annual report for charity Design agency This Way Up has produced an unusual and eyecatching annual report in a calendar format for London youth housing charity Patchwork.Patchwork’s Fundraising and Communications Manager Clare Haynes commented on the new format: “Annual reports can be dry, but we want ours to reflect our organisation’s vitality. It highlights some of our success stories. The user-friendly spiral bound format invites people to flick through and read, whilst the calendar format is aimed to be kept, used and a reminder of our role in London to those who commission our services. It reflects our approach to providing practical applications and solutions.”The report builds on the iconic brand identity This Way Up created for Patchwork in 2000, when the identity was created in response to changes in the funding mechanism for care-based organisations, which has lead to increased competition in the housing sector. The report is aimed at potential commissioning boroughs, partners and stakeholders, but will also act as a year-long marketing tool.

Louisiana’s African slave revolt of 1811

Louisiana’s African slave revolt of 1811

first_imgSome writers today note that an often hidden and misrepresented anti-slavery rebellion in 1811 along the German Coast in Louisiana — located above New Orleans on the Mississippi River — was the largest African uprising during the antebellum period.Historiographical accounts of resistance to slavery among Africans in North America have undergone many revisions. Early 20th century accounts of the slave period were crafted for academia by Southern historians who were sympathetic to the planters and business interests that dominated the region.Reactionary white professors such as Ulrich B. Phillips, a Southerner who taught at the University of Michigan from 1911 to 1929, claimed that the Southern slave system was paternalistic, using largely benign, coercive methods to ensure production quotas. Phillips attributed acts of resistance to criminal activity and refused to acknowledge the humanity of enslaved Africans.However, African and white progressive historians have sought to unravel the recurrent rebellions and other forms of resistance against enslavement and national oppression. Rather than being considered an aberration in the slave system, the consistent acts of resistance to bondage suggest they played a significant role in shaping the character of the repressive mechanism utilized to maintain this exploitative system.For example, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 was implemented at the beginning of the decade that saw the economic decline of the plantation system. The increasingly intransigent positions of the Southern planters were, in part, a response to the economic and political crisis of the period — when resistance to slavery grew substantially.Origins of 1811 Louisiana slave revoltA re-examination of historical documents related to the rebellion along the German Coast point to the high degree of organization and discipline exercised by the African leaders who were brought there from Haiti and the region now known as Ghana in West Africa. The United States had acquired large swaths of territory in 1803, known as the Louisiana Purchase, as a direct result of the collapse of French colonialism and slavery in Haiti.Africans in Haiti rose up against slavery in August 1791 and continued their struggle for more than 12 years, defeating not only the French but Spanish and British interventions. The formation of an African Republic in Haiti in 1804 sent shock waves throughout the antebellum South.Enslaved Africans in the South were aware of the Haitian Revolution and consequently sought avenues of escape and revolt against the plantation system. Recent accounts of the Louisiana rebellion of 1811 indiicate that those who planned the break with the slave system were conscious of developments in Haiti and the ongoing struggle between Spain and the U.S. over control of Florida.Newspaper accounts at the time of the 1811 rebellion claimed that the Africans’ actions were unfocused and disorganized. However, a study conducted by Daniel Rasmussen, in the book entitled “American Uprising: The Untold Story of America’s Largest Slave Revolt,” looks deeper into the court records concerning the prosecution of the uprising’s African leaders and the timing of the resistance effort, which was aimed at seizing New Orleans and establishing an independent republic. (HarperCollins, 2011)In a review of Rasmussen’s book, Wendell Hassan Marsh writes, “The author situates the events in larger, international political and intellectual currents, revealing the sophistication of his subjects that many histories of slave rebels fail to portray. By the author’s account, the 1804 Haitian revolution victory inspired slaves around the colonies to rebel.” (The Root, Feb. 25, 2011)The review notes, “The timing of the revolt — when there was little work and the white elites were preparing for Carnival celebrations, paired with the absence of a significant force of order because of American expansionism in Spanish West Florida — speaks to the slaves’ political and organizational acumen. … A cosmopolitan black republicanism seems to have been ripe in the region at the time of the revolt.”It continues, “Maroon colonies in the bayou operated as effective bases from which rebels attacked in the years leading up to the German Coast uprising. Copies of the French Declaration of the Rights of Man were found in slave quarters. Battle-hardened warriors from Ghana and Angola also make an appearance in Rasmussen’s version, in which the rebels march in formation and in uniform with cavalry support, not simply to ‘give us free,’ as Cinqué asked, but to take control of New Orleans and establish a black state.”‘On to New Orleans’From 200 to 500 Africans participated in the rebellion. Most of them were armed with knives, axes and other weapons; some carried guns.The revolt erupted on Jan. 8 at Manuel Andry’s plantation in St. Charles Parish, 36 miles from New Orleans. Charles Deslondes — who was brought to New Orleans from Haiti — was a principal figure in the rebellion. He worked as a slave driver on the Andry plantation and occupied a relatively privileged position within the system.Nonetheless, Deslondes utilized access to the plantation house to organize fellow enslaved Africans; they severely wounded Manuel Andry and killed his son. They further armed themselves and set off, chanting “On to New Orleans” and picking up recruits along the way.Along the Mississippi River, as they headed to New Orleans, the Africans burned down several plantations and sugar mills. White slave owners and their families fled ahead of the approaching rebellion, alerting the authorities.On the night of Jan. 9, a detachment of U.S. regular troops and a planters’ militia attacked the Africans at the Jacques Fortier plantation in St. Charles Parish, halting their advance toward New Orleans. During the clashes between the Africans and the plantation system defenders, 66 revolutionary fighters were killed and 75 others were captured.Of the 75 Africans who were detained, 25 were prosecuted in a show trial. After a one-day investigation, 18 Africans were condemned to death and taken to their so-called “masters’“ plantations, where they were shot to death and decapitated. The Africans’ severed heads were put on poles on the plantations for the purpose of terrifying other enslaved people into submission.Some of the Africans who had escaped to Orleans Parish were captured and also received a putative trial. A tribunal consisting of a judge and a panel of slave holders tried them.Significance of African resistanceto slaveryThis important chapter in the history of African resistance to slavery is finally getting the historical attention it requires — two centuries after these monumental events took place.There are parallels between the U.S. ruling class’ suppression of information about Africans’ resistance to enslavement and their distortion of actual historical accounts, and today’s nationwide movement against racist police violence. Official reports on the killings of African Americans on U.S. streets provide legal rationalizations for them under the guise of “justifiable homicide” or “accidental deaths” unattributed to law enforcement actions.When the youth in Ferguson, Mo., rose up in rebellion in response to the brutal killing of Michael Brown on Aug. 9, they faced condemnation from all quarters of the capitalist class — from local officials up to the White House. However, these acts of rebellion and mass demonstrations against state violence will continue until institutional racism and national oppression are uprooted in the U.S.There can be no justification for either the suppression of slave revolts throughout U.S. history or the brutality used against today’s struggles against racism and national oppression. Washington’s emphasis on “human rights” around the world rings hollow amid the atrocities being committed against African Americans here at home, which in most cases go unpunished and are often even rewarded by the state.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

BS with Every Burrito

BS with Every Burrito

first_img BS with Every Burrito SHARE By Gary Truitt – Apr 18, 2016 SHARE Home Commentary BS with Every Burrito Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarm Credit System Paints Dismal Picture of Farm EconomyNext articleFunds Flowing Back Into Grain Markets Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter It is unlikely very many of you in the agricultural community felt too sorry for the Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant chain when its food safety problems made national news. After its attack ads on farmers, most of us felt it was about time “they got theirs.”  Chipotle’s troubles are not over, however, a class action lawsuit has been filed that claims its food is unhealthy and its nutrition and animal care claims are misleading. The suit charges that Chipotle’s marketing spins a false narrative to consumers that the company’s food is healthier and that the company’s practices are more ethical. Here’s what the lawsuit says consumers should know:Chipotle deceptively advertises its beef as free of added hormones. It doesn’t mention that all beef is low in hormones—lower than its pinto beans and tofu that have significantly higher levels of hormones.Chipotle claims its food is free of genetically modified ingredients. Yet that’s not true of Chipotle’s soda, and livestock used for Chipotle meat can be fed genetically modified corn and grains up until the day they are processed for food.Chipotle promotes a local farm profile and is critical of big processing food suppliers. The deception is that its food is processed in large factories and the company shares a distribution chain with McDonald’s, Taco Bell, and Chick-fil-A.A new web site “Chubby Chipotle” takes on the health claims of the chain by pointing out that its Burritos have as many as 1,500 calories. The New York Times noted, “The typical order at Chipotle has about 1,070 calories. That’s more than half of the calories that most adults are supposed to eat in an entire day.”  “Chipotle claims to be ethical, but its ‘Food with Integrity’ marketing doesn’t have any filling. It’s an empty ploy that is highly unscientific and harms animal welfare,” Will Coggin, director of research at the Center for Consumer Freedom, said. “Considering how Chipotle ignores scientists and experts, ‘Food with Hypocrisy’ would be a more honest slogan.”Consumer advocates are always calling on farmers to be more transparent. They claim people have the right to know how their food is being produced. Yet, why aren’t they demanding the same from food retailers like Chipotle who are using consumer concerns to market and mislead?  Farmers are working very hard to build consumer trust in their food supply and the methods and technology used to produce it. Firms like Chipotle are using false and misleading information to market their products to the public.The advocates for agriculture need to switch from defense to offense. Let’s stop defending the farmer and start exposing those who misrepresent and distort the truth about our food supply.By Gary Truittlast_img read more

Residents of Fort Worth were encouraged to get outside and meet with police officers and other city personnel.

We haven’t counted the value yet, but it looks substantial.“Notes of various denominations were dipped into our buckets….it seemed that just about everybody wanted to donate. It was an historic occasion, of course, for Limerick. The weather was most favourable and everybody was in good mood…. there was no hint of recession. The atmosphere was like Croke Park on All-Ireland final day”.  There was a possibility, he continued, that the fund might even top the €100,000 mark.“We are still counting…we were weighed down with cash and thankfully, all Limerick charities will be beneficiaries. We did not anticipate such a response”.The same source had a tip for those engaged in tourism.“At the entrance to the tunnel on the Dock Road side, there are two magnificent lakes, of which few, other than locals, could have been aware until now. There was an abundance of wildlife there last weekend, and now that the site has opened up, maybe they could now be highlighted”.last_img read more
