Theresa May’s Awesome Political Manoeuvre

While the enemies of democracy were paying attention to the Supreme Court hearing, the one and only, absolutely awesome, Theresa May, our greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill, used the sovereignty of Parliament to gloriously out manoeuvre the self serving traitors, totally pulling the rug from under them in the process.

We are getting out of there!

Urge all 52 Commonwealth countries to commit to ending modern slavery

While a third of the world’s population are Commonwealth citizens, according to the Global Slavery Index a staggering 55% of those currently enslaved reside in Commonwealth countries.2 This means that the Commonwealth is in a unique position to help significantly reduce slavery in the world.

cw-countries-3-640x333

So far, the Commonwealth has not made a formal commitment to ending modern slavery. However, if it adopts a position, it will commit to putting time and resources towards tackling this problem. The Commonwealth Secretariat – the governing body coordinating efforts – would provide technical support and expert guidance to help member states develop effective responses and legislation. Therefore, this would be a huge step forward.

So how do we make this happen? In spring 2018, the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) will take place in the UK. At this conference, the Heads of each country decide on a mandate of issues to work on in union. This moment is our chance to shape the agenda and ensure modern slavery is prioritised.

Decisions on which topics are included in the next CHOGM start long before the conference itself. Walk Free is working with the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI), to do this.  By showing the Commonwealth strong public support on ending modern slavery, we can persuade them to take up the cause.Show your support here

Lib Dem Focus

dadsxb1

Under 50% voted in the Richmond bye election so the new MP has no mandate. People didn’t know what they were voting for. There needs to be a second bye election in the constituency to clarify the result. As a matter of fact, we should let the high Court decide if it should go on a vote of parliament before a second by election because the result in Richmond is not what anybody voted for. Nobody understood the difference between hard bullshit and soft bullshit, as a matter of fact, nobody knew what bullshit means. So their needs to be a rerun of the bye election to determine what bullshit the people support.

Euro Fed Busy Body

Eurofedralist fanatic Guy Verhofstadt rejoiced in the Lib Dem victory claiming it was the end of Brexit, when he should have minded his own business. But his intervention nicely reminded a lot of us why we voted to leave.

That most odious of Lib Dem MP’s, Anna Soubry, rejoiced in her party’s bye election victory and claimed Brexit wasn’t going to happen.

Hard Brexit is the only type of Brexit there is and typically disingenuous Lib Dem, Anna Sourface,  is claiming there are different types of Brexit to confuse the people to stop the democratic will of the people taking place. Some claim that she is Blue Labour, but the reality is, she is as red as Martlesham Lion and is most at home with the anti democratic, illiberal, regressive, extreme left of the Liberal Democrats.

Here is the newly elected MP for Richmond explaining th eLib Dem position so well.

It’s not democracy. There needs to be a second bye election. The majority of her constituents didn’t vote for her. It’s not fair! I spent the whole day crying when I heard the result. Ignorant, selfish people voted Lib Dem and ruined our future. Such intellectually inferior people shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

Modern Slavery

Safer Suffolk Communities

The International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, 2 December, marks the date of the adoption, by the General Assembly, of the United Nations Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others

“On this International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, let us resolve to use the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a roadmap for stamping out root causes and freeing all enslaved people in our world.”

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

The focus of the day is on eradicating contemporary forms of slavery, such as trafficking in persons, sexual exploitation, the worst forms of child labour, forced marriage, and the forced recruitment of children for use in armed conflict

What does ‘modern slavery’ actually mean?  The UN explains that:

Forced Labour – alongside traditional forms of forced labour, such as bonded labour and debt bondage there now exist more…
