Kingfisher Victory!

Congratulations are due to the Kingfisher Mums and their supporters today, the CCG have finally capitulated.

Confounding  the many faces set against this campaign, including both of Oliver Letwin’s, with his ugly henchman Richard Grosvenor-Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax M.P., full consultant-led maternity and Paediatric services will be retained at Dorset County Hospital.

Full respect to the Mums who for three years now have maintained a relentless struggle in the teeth of abject treachery and deceit from local politicians and NHS officials, whilst bringing up their families and caring for some profoundly unwell and disabled children. We especially salute the tireless Naomi Patterson.

As history shall recall, Working Class women are a force to be reckoned with.

We didn’t even need to smash anything up, this time.

The NHS was built by the Working Class for the Working Class. Drugs and medical equipment are made by workers not capitalists. Cleaners, doctors, nurses, midwives, porters and technicians are workers. It belongs to us, it’s not a source of revenue for the socially useless. Keep your filthy grasping bourgeois hands off it!

To celebrate, here’s a song about vampires:

Dorset Socialists meeting Sat 2 December How do we get rid of sexual abuse & violence?

Sat 2 December 1.30 pm Colliton club Dorchester. How do we get rid of sexual abuse & violence?

Speaker: Lynne Hubbard

Leaflet from Lynne: “From Hollywood to Whitehall, the conduct of those with wealth and power has highlighted issues of harassment and sexual violence – abuse all too common for women and girls worldwide. Why does it happen? Are men the problem? If not, what is?

Men can behave in dreadful ways towards women. They should always be challenged – and be pushed to change. But abuse happens because of prevailing views in our society, not because of biology. Women’s oppression is part of capitalist society – the same society in which women are paid less than men for doing the same work, are more likely to live in poverty, pay a heavier price for “austerity”, and still take more responsibility for housework and childcare. The view that women’s lives are less important than men’s comes from the top. In challenging poverty and inequality we also challenge oppression, including sexist attitudes that encourage men to treat women as sexual objects.

Capitalism fails ordinary people – women and men – and women’s oppression is key to propping it up. 

How do we fight such oppression as part of efforts to bring social change? Lynne Hubbard introduces discussion at this open meeting – all are welcome.”

Letwin sticks his neck out!

Word reaches us that Evil Ollie Letwin The architect of NHS privatisation, racist, supporter of fox hunting, badger-baiting and other horrors, is offering a frank exchange of views with some of his intended victims. “Come and question Oliver Letwin at 6 pm on Wednesday 24th May at Loders Village Hall DT6 3SA” facebook event

felix2Rrrright, now, ahahahahahaa!

A warm welcome is assured for the old etonian author of ‘Privatising the World’ who will be delighted to answer questions about how he has made a career out of selling us things we already own. He can no longer show his face in Dorchester, so he’s holding his ‘public’ meeting in Maiden Newton, which is bloody difficult to get to, even if you live in the vicinity, because they’ve cut all the bus services.

Stolen lives: public meeting about immigration detention in Dorchester 10th March.

stolen-lives-poster-final_1_orig

Verne Visitors Group are holding a public meeting about immigration detention at Dorchester Corn Exchange on Friday 10th March at 7:30 p.m. free admission, all welcome.

If you can, please come to make the point that detention is not wrong for all the bad effects it has (which are frequently listed – mental health, physical health, loneliness, despair etc), although it certainly does have these effects.

It is inherently wrong to lock people up just because they don’t have the right nationality papers
