Welcome to Spelthorne Labour Party
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
University witch-hunt menaces freedom
In a sinister letter to university principals arousing terrible memories of Nazi Germany – a high ranked Tory MP forces entry into university activities, and seeks ‘compliance.’
He demands the names of lecturers engaged in modern European Political Studies – ‘Enemies of the people.’
Lest ‘Brexit’ is challenged, he wants curriculum copies, access to essays and research theses with penalties for these ‘Enemies of the people’ who ‘defy’ the government line.
Backing him up is the ‘Daily Mail’ prints a front page ‘denunciation,’ with photographs of 14 university heads of political studies who, they allege favour ‘remain.’ these are ‘traitors.’
We are miles away from Hitler’s Germany burning of books, still more distant from his regimes beheading of students critical of the regime in 1945.
But we are taking the first steps down the road to ending free speech: the freedom – hence excellence – of our universities at risk.
More fake news from
Because of Brexit’s implicit threat to EU nurses joining our N.H.S., Health Minister and Surrey M.P Jeremy Hunt urgently needs a distraction.
Thames Water’s fine is a tap on a leaky wrist
Thus he proclaim a whooping untruth to a ‘Health Issues’ meeting of Tory activists.
Tory Minister for Health Henry Willink founded the N.H.S. in 1944. Not Nye Bevan in the Attlee government then?
Hunt’s historical accuracy is as lacking as his disregard for truth is rampant.
Willink voted against the N.H.S. legislation on no fewer than 22 occasions as ‘Hansard’ shows. He was in distinguished Tory senior Tory company in the voting into law of the service – Churchill, Eden, Macmillan, Butler joined him in voting ‘against’ as did rank and file Tory M.Ps.
He should cease misleading this generation of Tories and the wider public.
As the Labour cavalry charge over the hill, to Britain’s rescue Jeremy Corbyn’s reformers will sort out the privatisation of public services once and for all.
Last May, Thames Water, amid fears of drought, missed its water leakage target by 47 million litres a day. That is the daily volume of 18 Olympic swimming pools. OFWAT fined the miscreants £8.5 million.
The tap on a leaky wrist which is the maximum allowed. Before that — look away if eating — Thames Water pumped 1.4 billion litres of raw sewage into the river. The offence was hit with a record fine of £20.3 million.
Who owns this necessity of life? As the name implies, you would think,
we Brits/ Londoners.
Wrong the Tories have sold it to a mysterious foreign consortia of sovereign wealth funds involving Abu Dhabi, China, Australia, Canada, and Kuwait.
Are these the sort of trade deals we can expect when leaving the EU?
We “customers” might be disgruntled, but the shareholders will not. One billion pounds in dividends in the decade buys their complicity.
But surely Thames Water have sacked their £700.000 per year boss? Wrong again. No fine for him, instead, a bonus of £54.000.
Roll on a Labour government.
Excerpts from Labour’s fully costed manifesto
If you want free university education, vote Labour.
University tuition is free in many northern European countries,
and under a Labour government it will be free here too.
If you want to keep your home in old age, vote Labour.
In their first term, Labour will lay the foundations of a National Care Service for England.
If you want to see our utilities owned by the British Nation, instead of foreign investors, Vote Labour.
Across the world, countries are taking public utilities back into public ownership. Labour will learn from these experiences and bring key utilities back into public ownership to deliver lower prices, more accountability and a more sustainable economy. We will:
· Bring private rail companies back into public ownership as their franchises expire.
· Regain control of energy supply networks through the alteration of operator license conditions, and transition to a publicly owned, de-centralised energy system.
· Replace our dysfunctional water system with a network of regional publicly-owned water companies.
Reverse the privatization of Royal Mail at the earliest opportunity.
Public ownership will benefit consumers, ensuring that their interests are put first and that there is democratic accountability for the service.
If you want a good Brexit deal, Vote Labour.
Labour accepts the referendum result and a Labour government will put the national interest first. We will prioritize jobs and living standards, build a close new relationship with the EU, protect workers’ rights and environmental standards, provide certainty to EU nationals and give a meaningful role to Parliament throughout negotiations.
Brexit under Labour would result in a fair deal for the many, and good relations with our EU neighbors.
Brexit under the Conservatives would result in hardship for many, dodgy trade deals with dubious nations and isolation from our former EU partners.
Spelthorne Labour Party would prefer to become part of Greater London.
Although Spelthorne Labour Party would support the idea being put out, of breaking up of Surrey into unitary authorities — after all nothing could be worse than what we already have!
In a recent survey carried out among Spelthorne’s Labour Party members, the findings came out totally in favour of Spelthorne becoming part of Greater London and a motion was passed to that effect.
This policy must be thoroughly explored after the elections.
Some of the advantages of being part of
· We would automatically become part of zone 6, this would make rail fares cheaper for commuters going into London.
· All over 60s would get a freedom pass which would give them free rail travel into London.
· More money spent on primary and secondary school education.
· Being part of London instead of Surrey’s back yard would give us more self pride and status.
· The cheaper fares would also encourage multinational companies to relocate here, bringing extra wealth and prosperity to our Thames side borough with its nearness to Heathrow Airport good links to the M1, M3, M4, M25, with the added bonus of a London address.
· Lower council tax, e.g. Spelthorne band D £1,748.56, Hillingdon band D
As a point of interest neighbouring Greater London borough Hillingdon has frozen council tax for all residence for the ninth successive year. Also free burglar alarms, swimming and allotments for the over- 65s.
Pre 1965 Spelthorne was considered as part of Greater London. GLC (Greater London Council), low deposit, fixed rate, low interest mortgages were given out by the then Labour government to help young people buy their first homes, these mortgages were also available to people living in Spelthorne.
Metropolitan Police living here got London weighting.
We also have our Greater London London TW post code.
