British youth overwhelmingly supports Jeremy Corbyn


A recent survey by YouGov shows that the British youth overwhelmingly chooses to vote for the Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn against the Conservative party under Theresa May.

Perhaps the most interesting feature here is that the power of the Conservatives grows linearly with the age of the voters, which shows the gap between younger generations and the older ones. The younger would like to see Corbyn's socialist policies implemented, to drive UK forward against neoconservatism and neoliberalism. On the contrary, the older remain conservative and unwilling to see real changes.

This is clearly depicted:

Age

18-24
25-49
50-64
65+
Conservative
22
31
45
67
Labour
59
48
32
19

We see a similar picture here with the primary elections of the Democrats in the US, where the American youth supported massively Bernie Sanders and managed to boost its power against Hillary Clinton. When the establishment saw his power grow rapidly, the DNC itself decided to get him out of the game.

Various polls in the UK show a bigger gap between Conservatives and the Labour, but all show that the gap is closing significantly as we approach the election day. Will Jeremy Corbyn manage to make the surprise, despite the war against him from the establishment and the media?

Everything shows that the British youth could bring a political earthquake in the UK that could affect significantly the political developments in Europe, despite Brexit.

Οι νέοι στη Βρετανία ψηφίζουν Κόρμπιν

Σημαντικό προβάδισμα στους νέους ψηφοφόρους έχει ο ηγέτης του Εργατικού Κόμματος Τζέρεμι Κόρμπιν, σύμφωνα με έρευνα της εταιρείας δημοσκοπήσεων YouGov ενόψει των εκλογών στη Βρετανία.

Ειδικότερα το Εργατικό Κόμμα, στους ψηφοφόρους κάτω των 25 ετών, προηγείται με 57 μονάδες. Στο σύνολο των ψηφοφόρων, η Τερέζα Μέι διατηρεί το υψηλό προβάδισμά της, αν και ο Τζέρεμι Κόρμπιν, σύμφωνα με τις δημοσκοπήσεις, φέρεται να μειώνει τη διαφορά.

Σύμφωνα με τη δημοσκόπηση της εταιρείας ORB, η απόσταση που χωρίζει τους Συντηρητικούς από το αντιπολιτεύομενο Εργατικό Κόμμα μειώθηκε στις 6 μονάδες, από 12 που ήταν την περασμένη εβδομάδα. Η δημοσκόπηση αυτή δίνει ποσοστά 44% στο Συντηρητικό κόμμα, 38% στους Εργατικούς, 7% στους Φιλελεύθερους Δημοκράτες και 4% στο ξενοφοβικό UKIP.

Μείωση της διαφοράς, αλλά στις 10 μονάδες (από 13 που ήταν στις 16 Μαΐου) δείχνει και η δημοσκόπηση του ινστιτούτου Opinium για λογαριασμό της εφημερίδας Observer. Σύμφωνα με αυτήν, οι Συντηρητικοί συγκεντρώνουν ποσοστό 45% και οι Εργατικοί 35%.

Λίγο μεγαλύτερη διαφορά, στις 12 μονάδες (από 18 που ήταν στις 13 Μαΐου) δίνει η δημοσκόπηση της ComRes για λογαριασμό των εφημερίδων Sunday Mirror και Independent. H Comres, που ρώτησε διαδικτυακά 2.024 ψηφοφόρους, αναφέρει στην εκτίμησή της ότι οι Συντηρητικοί έχουν πέσει στο 46% ενώ οι Εργατικοί ανέβηκαν κατά 4 μονάδες και έφτασαν στο 34%.

Τέλος, σύμφωνα με τη δημοσκόπηση της εταιρείας YouGov για την εφημερίδα Sunday Times, οι Συντηρητικοί προηγούνται με ποσοστό 43% και οι Εργατικοί βρίσκονται στη δεύτερη θέση με 36%. Και σε αυτήν την περίπτωση όμως η διαφορά μεταξύ των δύο κομμάτων μειώθηκε μέσα σε μία εβδομάδα κατά δύο μονάδες.

A recent case in Greece gives another proof for the fact that the neoliberal establishment becomes increasingly authoritarian


Political heat rose for one more time in Greece on the occasion of the recent bomb-attack against the former Greek PM Lucas Papademos.

The political opposition, mainly through the neoliberal right party, New Democracy, attacked the current government, and mainly SYRIZA, for its stance to criticize Papademos administration as being a non-elected government, imposed by Greece's creditors from November 2011 to May 2012.

Such political attacks have become a routine case from the side of the old political establishment (mainly the Right New Democracy and the Social-Democrats PASOK), constantly accusing SYRIZA (Coalition of the Radical Left) that encourages terrorism.

This time, however, the neoliberal establishment in Greece went one step further. In one of the biggest TV channels which belongs to a top Greek oligarch, some neoliberal pundits called for censorship against Facebook and Twitter users who expressed negative views against Papademos. Moreover, one of them, called for prosecution against nearly 10,000 users! The social media and various independent blogs fired back, pointing that these pundits have come to the point of requesting Erdogan-type practices!

This is a picture of a regime that becomes increasingly authoritarian. We can imagine a 1984-type future where censorship could come at any time, against anyone who dares to criticize even an unelected banking puppet, like Papademos. With the pretext of terrorism, repression measures and militarization of urban centers becomes something common and people are getting used to it. In the authoritarianism of the future, people could become suspects of terrorism just for criticizing someone, even if that happens before any attempt against him.

The neoliberal regime in the West and elsewhere becomes increasingly authoritarian, exactly because the old political establishment which represents it, starts to collapse almost everywhere. Because its brainwashing mechanisms start to collapse too. Authoritarianism is the last resort of the elites when the old tricks don't work anymore. It happens right now in Brazil, for example.

Recall that, the former president of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, came up with the idea, back in 2011, that the then Greek PM George Papandreou could be replaced by the technocrat Lucas Papademos, as eventually happened, when Papandreou "dared" to think to hold a referendum on the acceptance of the terms of the eurozone bailout deal with Greece, and that, Papademos worked with Goldman Sachs when Greece was trying to get its debts levels down so it could swap its currency from the drachma to the euro. It later transpired that that cross currency deals negotiated between Greece and Goldman had helped mask Greece’s true levels of debt and contributed to the current crisis in the eurozone.

Theresa May twists Corbyn’s words on Manchester attack to grab a few extra votes

UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has had the audacity to utter the unthinkable. In his first campaign speech since the terrorist attack on Manchester Arena, he dared to link Britain’s involvement in foreign wars to terrorism on British soil.

During the 15-minute speech on how Labour would deliver on domestic security in the UK, Corbyn said: “Many experts, including professionals in our intelligence and security services have pointed to the connections between wars our government has supported or fought in other countries, such as Libya, and terrorism here at home.

It’s no surprise that Corbyn was immediately accused by his critics of politicizing the Manchester attack by drawing a link between terrorism and foreign policy. But the response from Prime Minister Theresa May was perhaps the most sickening and disingenuous of all.

Speaking on the sidelines of the G7 in Taormina, May unashamedly twisted Corbyn’s words and lied blatantly: “Jeremy Corbyn has said that terror attacks in Britain are our own fault,” she said, before going a step further to imply Corbyn had made excuses for the Manchester attacker: “There can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism. There can be no excuse for what happened in Manchester.

Let’s just get this clear: Jeremy Corbyn did not say terrorist attacks on British soil are the fault of British people — and he did not make any excuses, nor did he imply any excuses could ever be made, for terrorists who carry out such attacks.

For anyone who actually listened to his speech, there can be no debating this. Corbyn never said any such thing. May simply decided to take his actual words and fashion them into something which she thought might win her a few extra votes in the upcoming general election. Ten days out, with her lead in the polls dramatically sinking, any dig against Corbyn will do — even if she needs to stoop to calling him a terrorist sympathizer.

Indonesian Borneo is finished: Pollution reaching epic proportions

How destructive can man get, how ruthless, in his quest to secure maximum profit, even as he endangers the very survival of our planet?

The tropical forests of Kalimantan (known as Borneo in Malaysia), the third largest island in the world, have almost totally disappeared. Coalmines are savagely scarring the hills; the rivers are polluted, and countless species are endangered or extinct.

It is all a terrible sight, whether you see it from the air or when driving (or walking) through the devastation that is taking place on the ground. The soil is black; it is often saturated with chemicals. Dead stubs of trees are accusatively pointing towards the sky. Many wonderful creatures, big and small, who used to proudly inhabit this tropical paradise, are now hiding in the depth of what remains of one of the largest tropical jungles on earth

Engines are instantly roaring everywhere; huge equipment is continually cutting through something pure, or digging and finally transporting what has already been extracted, killed, or taken down mercilessly.

Ms. Mira Lubis, Senior Lecturer at Tanjungpura University, Pontianak in Western Kalimantan, summarizes the situation honestly but brutally:

I think we, the people of Borneo, have lost our sovereignty over our own space and resources, under the pressure of global capitalism... Apparently, we just became poor despite all the wealth that we have.
