Once again, Multi-corporations are trying their best to mitigate the damage caused by the UK tax payer finding out about their not so “Social Responsibility” tag. This headline news, once again is a clever ploy, to distract the public by putting out a statement through news channels about them taking this seriously. Once again, time will tell, whether anything will really change in the long term. For the common man/women £100 million is a lot of money, but for the Corporations its pennies as they dabble in Billions and Trillions.
Small change compared to what they should be really paying. I will in the next few weeks post more details about how to interpret these headlines as George Osborne and company are all part of this problem. If we don’t understand this, then we will never be able to effect positive change in the country and save our public services from being privatized by Politicians and their handlers/paymasters.
In the footsteps of Gandhi by Dr.Vandana Shiva
The above interview by Scott London was published in The Ecologist on 14th February 2016.
Some of you may know that in the last few years, major Corporations like Amazon, Starbucks, etc. have be exposed as some of the well know brands not paying their fair share of UK tax. The short clip gives an insight into how and why companies like Facebook do this and get away “legally” not paying their taxes! Have you ever wondered why public services are being cut, well! its not because of the so called “benefit scroungers” but Corporations like Facebook who by not paying their taxes do not contribute to the public purse in away you and I do. Will this change? or can this change? Of course it can, its up to us.

Are you keeping safe? Electrical wiring and appliances, overhead power lines, machinery, photocopiers, mobiles and cordless telephones, radio masts, TVs, tube trains, x-rays and laser beams are amongst the hundreds of everyday items that are now known to give off high levels of microwave radiation. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can be biologically active and capable of making changes to the structure of human and animal cells which are exposed to them. Long-term exposure is believed by an increasing number of scientists and environmentalists to be connected to tumours, fertility problems, behaviour and mood changes, concentration and memory loss, and also to affect melatonin production and impair our immune system repair mechanisms. The Powerwatch Handbook is a simple no-nonsense guide to EMFs and how to reduce their harmful effect. Alasdair and Jean Philips present their information in a practical, positive and lively way, in an easy-to-follow handbook style. EMF levels are graded using a star rating system, high level items are highlighted, and practical tips given in step-by-step, bullet point form.
A Must read for anyone who cares about their health.
What has happened to good, honest journalism? Since the last few decades, journalism has taken a back seat and we are no longer able to access the truth through print media. My intention here is to give an alternate view of all relevant topics currently not covered in the media either through newspapers, tabloids, magazines, books, radio, internet or television. The idea is to provoke and challenge the official version of story and the conditioning of the mind by main stream organisations like religion, governments and science!
The intention of this Blog and site is to stimulate “out of the box” thinking and solutions to mitigate and stop the destruction of this planet, our only home.
