Tony ‘war criminal’ Blair used to pontificate to all and sundry that talk of class war was irrelevant in the 21st century as a society had moved on and it was wrong to use such antagonistic phrases any longer. The “class war is over” declared the born again ‘Tory Blair’ in September 1999. What utter tosh. I remember rising to ask one of Blair’s enthusiastic acolytes in the Scottish Parliament, First Minister Donald Dewar, if he was an adherent to Blair’s proclamation about the death of the class war and if so ‘who won’? Mr Dewar stumbled and mumbled but as usual avoided the question while backing his New Labour Messiah. The class war is far from over and the introduction of ‘austerity’ by the Tory/Liberal coalition Government elected in 2010 on the back of the bankers crash of 2008 was just another name … [Read more...] about Austerity is Just a Fancy Name for Class War

But twice in recent years, the couple have driven halfway across Ireland to baptize their children at their families' community parishes. The reason? Their children's education.

But as opponents and campaigners expressed their disappointment, saying it sent out a message that the scheme was “a done deal”, Kirklees Council backed down. It said the process of consulting on road names was standard practice and was not an indicator as to whether planning permission would be granted. However it has now been stopped.

But in a battle that has lasted two decades campaigners with action group Save Mirfield have succeeded in winning a public inquiry to stop development and have forced Bellway to reduce its planned number of homes . And, earlier this month, a team with West Yorkshire Archaeology … [Read more...] about Public asked to come up with name for road
