Just wondering what peoples thoughts are regarding the whole Lybia invasion by NATO and now the emergence of Al-Qaeda flags flying next to Lybian flags on government buildings controlled by the new powers there? how has this not exposed the sinister activities undertaken by NATO? They have effectively installed the same people into power in Lybia who they went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan to remove from power?how are people standing for this and why isnt this being reported by the mainstream media??it beggars belief??

{Ed033's Note - Certainly does. As stated on here in a previous post Gadaffi used to give his people electricity for free, bread for free, interest free loans and enough money to buy a house when Libyan people got married and Libya was just about to attempt to make part of the deserts in Libya green again by tapping into underground aquifers and under Gaddafi, libya went from the being one of the poorest countries in Africa to one of the richest countries in Africa.}

Not really a conspiracy as such........

How would we all, as people under a government that a lot of people don't seem to want in power, go about trying to get them removed.

Vote of no confidence?
Mass rally?
Petition to the House of Lord's?

How does the system work to protect the people when the people don't like the onces now in power, especially when they are going back on pre-election promises?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Try waiting for the next election.

You say most people don't want it. And i agree a coalition isn't the greatest. But i didn't want a Labour government and based on votes cast nor did most people in the country as the lib dems and the tories together got more votes.

The only people who don't want the coalition are the lazy fat cat public sector workers who are waking up to the fact that they will have to share some of the pain the rest of us have had to put up with over the last 3 years.

Take my place of work for example.

2008 no pay rise. %00 job losses.
2009 no pay rise
2010 no pay rise (delayed till new tax year)
2011 pay rise but at 50% less of what would have had in previous years. More job losses.

Throw in the soaring cost of living and the last 3 years have not been a picnic.

Yet look at the public sector. I mean we had binmen in Brum on strike cos they were moaning about too much work, and then we find out the average wage was 27k a year!! I'd love to earn that. A binman on 27k a year for gods sake, no wonder people are fed up with councils.

The bloody teachers are a joke as well. All those holidays and they still moan.

So no mate, things aren't ideal but its about time the public sector was dragged into order and made to run more efficently.

O and yeah stuff does need to ne cut but the labour ran councils are doing it in spite to make things look bad, like Manchester for example cutting libraries and swimming pools to hurt ordinary people when their sat oon 60 million in the bank and could easily just get rid of all the non jobs in the city hall.

Have you ever been in side a town hall or city hall? They even have a tea trolley lady. My place we have to make our own. Talk about pampered.

Another exampe. Coventry City Council. 950 Public sector jobs have gone in Coventry since the elction, half of that in the council alone. So if they can axe almost 500 jobs, then did these people need to be employed in the first place? i guess not. {Ed001's Note - I am not one of those, but I don't want the coalition government, so your generalisation is untrue. In fact I doubt there are many that do want this coalition, especially not amongst those who voted for the Lib Dems, most of their votes came from people who wanted neither Tories or Labour in power.}

Agree2 Disagree2

On a less serious note, having watched V for Vendetta last night you could go and do that.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its still a democratically elected govt, popular or not.

the Miners managed to remove the Heath govt in 1974 through the general strike.

They tried to repeat the trick on Thatcher in 1984 and failed.

I do think the unions would love to have a repeat performance but this isn't a Tory govt its a coalition and popular support for the unions isn't what it was 40 years ago.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes Ed it was a bit of a generalisation, i think no-one at all wanted a coalition but thats what we got thanks to the system of having 3 parties. The Lib Dems were always going to hold the balance of power. Which is why i voted against that AV thing because we would have been in this mess after every election.

The thing is there really isn't anything to be done about it apart from hoping that next time there is an outright winner.

But at the end of the day we couldn;t have had labour after the mess they made. And a straight Tory govt, well we know how that would have turned out. As i see it the Tories have the balls to make the unpopular decsions Labour couldn't or wouldn't make and we need the Lib Dems in there to act as some sort of conscience and rain them in a bit when they start frothing at the mouth.

But i still stand on what i said about the Public Sector. it is in desperate need of reform. Labour had their chance and did nothing to reform only throw money at it. The money needs to be better spent. {Ed001's Note - I don't see how having yet another bunch of liars in charge helps with that?}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed i do see what you are saying and the political classes are full of liars, most of them being failed lawyers after all. But the alternative is what? Most people are apathetic anyway. {Ed001's Note - that is the problem, apathy, for starters voting should be compulsory rather than optional. Secondly any MP should not be allowed to have any kind of second job, if they have time for a second job they are not doing their job correctly as an MP. I don't have all the answers though, that would be a start, it would cut out the MPs who are purely there for money. After that, well who knows, but at least that's a start.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed Ed voting should be compulsory, enough people have made sacrifices for the privilge.

Also agreed on banning them from having 2 jobs. Might ease up on the corruption.

Should also ban any family members from working for them, blood relations or by marriage as well. I know most of them marry secretaries but can always get another one.

I'd also like to see some sort of requirement as well that opens it up to more ordinary people. can't really explain this well, but it always seems to be the same poeple. laywers like Blair, toffs like Cameron or people like the Milibands who have never lived in the real world. If there were more people in there from say an ordinary background who had had to struggle for a living for a few years and had more of a grounding with what the people they reperesent required it might help. if that makes sense. not sure how you would do that though. {Ed001's Note - that's because no one outside of a privileged background can easily raise the cash needed to stand as an MP. That needs to be changed, you are right there, it is easy to forget that side of it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah think thats what i meant. Something like a 500 quid bond isn't it? Half a months wages before the tax man has finished for me.
If they opened it up a bit more then we could see some changes but thats what they are afraid of so can't see it happening for a while. {Ed001's Note - I agree, last thing they want is MPs who actually truly represent the people they are supposed to represent.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed001 well if most people who voted lib dem did so because they wanted neither Conservatives nor Labour in power as you say then all they were doing was lodging a protest vote since for the past few generations it has always been Con or Lab. As for making voting compulsory I am not bothered either way about that but if people cannot be bothered to vote anyway then all you get is another batch of protest or spoiled votes. More to the point those who don't vote shouldn't moan about how things in the country are going.
To the earlier poster on public sector pay and conditions...he is exactly right ...scandalous situation we are in..it is partly weak management in negotiating with unions (over very many years) bear
in mind councils don't have shareholders to answer to and partly Labour when in power creating their own 'pet voters' It is no coincidence that towns returning large labour majorities often have large government depts in the constituency.
'Keep the public sector workers happy and they will keep voting us in'

Puzzled {Ed001's Note - actually you will find that in a lot of constituencies they are either Labour or Tory. There is no way Labour will win in a Tory area or Tory win in a Labour area, so a lot of people will vote Lib Dem in the hope that they might get in instead.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah god forbid lol. Good chat Ed, think we should be running things! {Ed001's Note - last thing I would want to do is be in charge! Then I would have no one to blame but myself if it went wrong! Plus, I don't feel I would be the best person to do it, I would worry far too much about every decision, knowing just how much it really affects people if I make the wrong choice. In fact even the right choice will affect people.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed that makes you the right person, in that you would worry. I doubt Dave or Gordon ever lay awake at night.

Agreed on the Lib Dem voting thing, it tends to be mainly students based on what i've seen. Tories will always do well in the South, labour in the North and its the Midlands that decides things as these Midland seats tend to sway from one to the other.

Puzzled cheers for the support on public sector. These people really piss me off on the news all this moaning about being made to do what the rest of us had to do anyway over the last 3 years, what makes them so special? They are there to serve me yet it often feels like i am serving them. And they are often awful to deal with, all rude and arrogant.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed001 has Goldman-sachs behind him, don't
trust him. Ed033 gets my vote,i like the cut of
that mans jib.
JR {Ed033's Note - Thanks JR}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed001 I am loathe to disagree with someone who has the power to decide whether my post appears or not BUT I
do not think that the government 'departments' are anything like evenly spread across Con AND Lab constituencies...and if we look at great swathes of our homeland (and a great proportion labour controlled) there are very many areas where at least one in four of those employed are in the public sector. Those people (and their immediate families) will probably vote for the party they believe more likely to maintain or even increase the public sector. So they vote labour. Labour wants to retain these votes and so public sector jobs, 'like Topsy, just growed'.
As regards people voting LIb Dem in the hope of sneaking in ahead of Con or Lab I think a lot of these votes are tactical
ie Labour voters in a Tory controlled seat - where the Labour party has no chance - voting Lib Dem in the hope they will get in and the Con will not. Vice versa in a Lab controlled seat etc etc

Puzzled {Ed001's Note - I agree with you, but you are talking about a small proportion of the population mate. Hardly going to make a difference. Very few family members are going to vote based on their brother, for instance, working in the public sector. They will vote based on what is best for their own situation.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Re the poster wanting more 'ordinary' people to be able to stand instead of 'toffs' - anyone can stand - just need to get a few signatures proposing your candidature and stump up the (losable) deposit. But unless you are VERY well know locally or are leading a very big local bandwagon you have no chance of election. Majority of electors vote for
the party not the candidate.

As regards toffs - whilst it would be wrong to generalise - you don't get toffs standing for labour. All you need is to work your way up a trade union (Ughh)
or be a teacher (lecturer?) in a polytechnic. Neither of those backgrounds strikes me as being capable of making someone 'at one' with their electorate. Parliament is not FULL of toffs
but it is almost full of deadwood

Puzzled

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed i know people that vote labour just cos their retired parents worked for the council, its all a case of how your brought up.

That said i come from a family with strong union connections.

Puzzled, i know anyone can stand, but how many ordinary people can put up 500 for a deposit that in all likelihood you are going to lose?

Ordinary people such as myself or the Ed or Bob the Builder have very little chance of becoming a candidate for a mainstream party like the tories or Labour, as we're not a part of the establishment of either of those parties, we don't have the connections etc. Therefore our only hope really is an independent, and well there goes your deposit.

There have been quite a few toffs sneaking into the Labour ranks over the years, the likes of Blair, the Milibands etc, not many but not what my old grandad would have called "proper" Labour. My gran hated Blair, callled him a Tory in a Red Tie.

As for Trade Unions i think they are a total irrellevance these days, most of the stuff they do is covered under European law anyway, and all they do is cause misery for ordinary people by always striking at the most inconvenient times and they seem to exist just to make their bosses richer, a sort of if the bankers can do it why can't we sort of attitude.

Agreed though that Parliament is full of deadwood.

just been reading a bit about pine gap in australia, why drill a hole 5 miles deep, anyone got any theories.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Maybe they detected buried alien tech like that cube thing in transformers? Maybe they found some sort of rare mineral buried that far down and had to go deep to mine it? maybe they have some really nasty toxic waste they wanted to dispose of? Maybe they were just really really bored one day? maybe they had a bet on how far they could get down? maybe they just bought a new drill?

Does anyone know of a CURRENT petition site to stop the extradition of
Gary McKinnon, the hacker with Aspergers syndrome who is facing 25 years
in a US prison for searching for (and finding?) evidence of alien technology ?
I think he may have been looking at 911 as well , which would explain why the
americans want him so badly. Time is running out for this poor sod , and though
depressingly a petition probably won't help you never know.
JR

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Sorry but he should go over there and face trial. The law is still the law and he broke it, no matter the excuse. Curiosity is no defence. If i wanted to go and look at my neighbours new plasma tv and broke down the back door to have a nosey i would be in the wrong and would expect to get punished.

Agree6 Disagree6

Hacking is just wrong plain and simple. i bet everyone on here, at some point, has had some sort of problem related to hacking. Its a nuisence and inconvenient.

Ok so he wasn't being a nuisence to ordinary people by going around planting silly or malicious viruses or anything or knocking out Sony or Blackberry. But it was still wrong. Still illegal. What if he'd got into some sensitive stuff and people got killed for it?

Or is because he has some syndrome people are prepared to cut him some slack? Because to me thats wrong as well. He knew full well what he was doing.

Agree3 Disagree3

{Ed033's note - I think where Gary McKinnon went wrong is where he had a telephone offer from someone that was probably high up in the American military system. (Gary talks about this telephone conversation in his interviews with Project Camelot, Jerry pippin etc.) He apparently was offered the chance to plead guilty and spend a couple of years in prison then be released. My opinion is that Gary at that point should have said, "I accept your offer" and a binding contract would have been in place. But Gary counter offered by asking for the offer in writing.

If the Americans then altered the contract, then Gary could have something substantial to go into court with, i.e a binding contract that can't be altered.

As all phone calls are recorded, the offer he was originally given [and his acceptance if he had accepted the offer] could have been obtained from telephone records ordered by the court.}

Agree1 Disagree0

Im always reading on here how the military and the government or both are all -powerful,surely they could have made an agreement on the phone but easily deleted the records of said conversation.

Make yer minds up fellas!!

Neil J

Agree1 Disagree0

Get what your saying No 33 but i would have wanted it in writing as well, whats to stop the sneaky so and so's losing the copy of the call. {Ed033's Note - What I put was in hindsight and obviously at the time Gary had no idea what was going to happen. Who's to say if Gary had accepted their offer on the telephone and kept quiet that he would have gone to prison for a couple of years and then released on the understanding that he keeps quiet. There's plenty of people alive who have been threatened and keep quiet about things.}
