Once again I find myself writing about a fashion journalist. This one is freelancer Siam Goorwich. She is still living with her parents at the age of thirty, which is in large part the result of the unaffordability of houses in London. Her younger sisters also still live in the family home.
Writing for The Daily Mail, Siam appears quite contented with her situation, but writing for Cosmo earlier this year she was rather pessimistic. Commenting on a survey by Saga, she observed that:
"Saga are ignoring the bigger issue of house prices and unliveable wages".
A conference entitled: ‘The Post-American Century and Beyond’ is due to take place at a prestigious central London venue this coming Saturday, 12th October 2013, and is expected to introduce a number of new and interesting ideas and perspectives into right-wing and nationalist discourse in this country.
The conference is set to feature speeches by three renowned thinkers on the radical right who are advocates of what has been termed ‘Eurasianism’, which holds that the peoples of Europe and those of European extraction living in the North-West of Asia, i.e. the Urals and Siberia, are best placed to dominate the next century and beyond due to our occupation of both the cultural centres of Europe and the ‘Hinterland of the Eurasian landmass'. All that is required is that we Europeans open our minds to the possibility of aligning our interests with Russia and the old Eastern Bloc countries rather than perpetuating the delusional ’special relationship’ with the USA.
I thought I would take a short sideways look at our democracy and the “first Past the Post” system of election. There are many reasons why people vote and don't vote, but the outcome often seems to be that the government does not represent me, or even act in my interests. Indeed once a government has been elected it is free to carry out policies to suit itselfand usually does just that.
I can remember a good few general elections, and the turnout has sometimes been as low as 44% but never as high as 70% if memory serves correctly. Usually it's around 60% of the electorate, who either send in their postal vote or cast it in person. That means that nearly half just want someone else to decide, but of course it means that their vote doesn't count because they didn't cast it.
There have been a number of raids on jewellery stores recently, the most recent being in Paris. It seems that in many cases Roma gangs are to blame, and that Roma gangs are responsible for a lot of low level crime as well.
I cannot help but wonder how many of the jewellery stores which have been raided are owned by companies which have expressed support for the Front National. I don’t have exact figures, but I believe the answer to be in the region of zero.
Following on from the illegal arrests of the leader of Golden Dawn and her MP's she is not only still in the game but has just polled her highest percentage yet putting her in second place.
Our Editor has been busy running a local campaign over the past week so in his absence i'll almalgamate the latest three articles from the USA Golden Dawn site so that those of you that may have missed them are kept up to speed on the rapidly unfolding events in Greece and also to give you somewhere to comment on them. So, without futher ado:
For those who do not know about her, Liz Jones is a fashion journalist who writes for The Daily Mail.
Her most recent offering is about how she has transformed the life of a teenage girl in Bangladesh. Dolly used to work seven nights each week in a garment factory in Greater Dhaka in Bangladesh, but now lives in a village and goes to school.
Jones goes into detail about the Rana Plaza disaster. The Rana Plaza was an eight-storey building in Greater Dhaka which collapsed in April this year. Its top four floors had been built illegally, and housed a number of garment factories. The structure was not sufficiently robust to accommodate the vibration of machinery, and on 23 April it was declared unsafe. Many businesses using the building closed as a result, but the garment factories ordered their staff to come to work as usual.
