“No-one will be conned by this nonsense. The Tories are the party of the rich and powerful,” TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes told Union News.

Conservative plans to create trade unions for right-wing workers have been branded ‘bizarre’, ‘weird’ and lacking any basis in reality by existing workers organizations.

The Conservative Workers and Trade Union Movement project is aimed at conservative-leaning workers and “moderate” trade unionists, who may be unhappy with “militant” union leaders.
There will be a voice for moderate trade unionists who feel they may have sympathy with the Conservatives,” Tory MP Richard Halfon, who is championing the idea, told the House magazine on Wednesday.
There will be a new website and people will be able to join,” he added.
Halfon is deputy chairman of the Conservative Party and has long supported blue collar conservatism. The initiative is the latest in a Tory drive to appear as the party of the workers.
We will always be the Conservative Party, but I want also for people to think of us as the Conservative Party for workers, the Conservative Party for working people,” he argued.
And actually, if you look in our history, we always have been the workers’ party,” Halfon said.
He claimed Conservatives, including former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, have been committed to protecting trade unions. He said trade unionism ought to be an activity for the many not just the militant few.
At the moment, so much of it, you see … a few militant leaders who I believe don’t represent the thousands of ordinary trade union members,” he said.
Trade union leaders were quick to respond to the plans, branding them a “gimmick.
No-one will be conned by this nonsense. The Tories are the party of the rich and powerful,” TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes told Union News.
Their repeated attacks on workers’ rights show they detest ordinary people as actions always speak far louder than words. This is a shallow gimmick without any foundation or basis in reality,” he added.
This is a bizarre development. The Tory government is attacking workers’ rights, including the right to be in a union,” FBU general secretary Matt Wrack told Union News, referring to the Conservatives’ proposed Trade Union Bill.
The Tories have helped to drive down workers’ living standards in order to boost profits for big business,” Wrack added.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.

In an interview with’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
