UK Snap Election Promises 'Rude' Campaign Amid Political Discontent

Political analysts weigh in on the Conservatives' chances in the upcoming UK election, citing economic concerns and voter disillusionment.

It would be “truly astonishing” if the Conservatives win on July 4, Mark Garnett, a politics professor at Lancaster University, told Sputnik. Sunak hopes an early election will minimise his party's losses, “banking on good economic news” like falling inflation, the academic noted.

“Calling the election for July suggests he has given up hope that other things could improve between now and the end of 2024,” Garnett said.

In our last article, we analyzed Kiev’s military prospects in light of its new mobilization law. Here we consider the West's options in the proxy war it's using the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) to fight.

Trump to hold first NY rally since 2016, weeks after massive Jersey Shore gathering

Former President Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally in the South Bronx next week, and his first major gathering of supporters in his native state since his first White House bid comes on the heels of a record-breaking event at the Jersey Shore.

The May 23 rally will take place at 6 p.m. in Crotona Park, and the Trump campaign has a permit for up to 3,500 people to attend, his campaign announced Friday.

Trump, 77, is expected to speak on the Empire State’s economy, crime rate and migrant crisis. It’s his first rally in his birth state since Buffalo in 2016.

“President Trump will ease the financial pressures placed on households and re-establish law and order in New York!”


Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is aiming to hire a person to promote his image by harnessing the power of memes, according to a job listing. Both the Biden campaign and that of his archrival, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, have relied on memes to boost their electoral chances ahead of the November vote.  

The job ad was first posted on LinkedIn earlier this month and duplicated on the Biden campaign’s website, but only came into the media spotlight this week. The job, officially titled ‘Partner Manager, Content and Meme Pages’, is a full-time position with a salary range of $65,000 to $85,000 a year, and is based in Wilmington, Delaware.

Engagée dans la Résistance à Londres pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Jeannine Manuel (1920-2003) participe à la libération de Paris en août 1944.

Elle rentre de Londres convaincue que la source des conflits entre les nations et les cultures est la peur, issue de l'ignorance, et fait sienne la déclaration constitutive de l'Unesco : "Les guerres prenant naissance dans l'esprit des hommes, c'est dans l'esprit des hommes que doivent être élevées les défenses de la paix".

Rupert Murdoch’s Sunday Times outlet has just published another cookie cutter Russkie scare story. The Russians, “Putin”, if you prefer, have Ireland saturated from top to bottom with crack secret service agents, who are all working towards the Kremlin’s objective of world domination, or some such thing. James Bond, hold their beer.

A new court filing unsealed on Tuesday in the Trump classified documents case revealed federal agents were prepared to use 'deadly force' when executing a raid at Mar-a-Lago in 2022.

That raid on the ex-president's home ended with the FBI seizing hundreds of documents containing classified information.

“Never were we freer than under the German occupation. We had lost all our rights, and first of all our right to speak. They insulted us to our faces every day — and we had to hold our tongues”.

"not genocide"....

Australia has a duty, under Article 1 of the Genocide Convention, to “undertake to prevent and punish” the crime of genocide, and to “employ all means reasonably available to them, so as to prevent genocide so far as possible.”

The ‘Israel Country Brief’ published by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) confirms that ‘Australia and Israel share a close relationship with significant people-to-people links and broad commercial engagement. Australia established diplomatic relations with Israel in 1949.’

It is obvious to all, even the most ardent Ukrainian nationalists, that Ukraine is on the ropes, being battered relentlessly by a far better trained, prepared, and capable opponent. It is like watching a college boxer get hammered by a world champion heavyweight at this point, and one would think it would be in Ukraine’s immediate and long-term interest to cry uncle and try and make the best deal it can with Russia.

Even neocon mouthpieces like Politico realize this fact, but, of course, try and attribute this only to the recent “delayed delivery of weapons” caused by disagreements in the US House of Representatives.

Nothing could be further from the truth.


zelensky has been traumatising his own people.... and the animals....

Volodymyr Zelensky's overwhelming election victory in 2019 was based on the hopes for peace of the vast majority of the Ukrainian people. His de facto nonexistent election platform was thereby replaced by his performance as Ukrainian president in a popular television series. But instead of promoting peace, Zelensky submitted to the extreme nationalists in Ukraine.

In approximately 2 weeks, the European elections will take place. For people and workers, the European Union (EU) is at the heart of a deep crisis and their divorce from it is largely complete. On May 16 in Montauban at a meeting of CGT activists in Tarn et Garonne, Jean-Pierre Page spoke about the European Union, the far right and fascism, the new international balance of power.
