We are in a new world since the revelations of the #panamapapers and this world has to believe in better which is why Hillary Clinton is old news.
 
Bernie is right Hillary isn't fit to be president she's rotten to the core and greedy, lies to much can't be trusted to tell the truth, she would have us in wars and even get us bombed !!
The architects of Hillary Clinton’s presidential run are lobbyists for Russia’s most powerful bank. What are the national security implications?

Cameron has said he does not now have shares or other schemes apart from his earnings, some savings and rental from his house whilst he is in no 10.

It is the tradition in any case that any such schemes would be parked whilst in office. However what is missing from his statement is will the offshore investments which are tax invisible which were part of his fathers estate be part of some future inheritance or has some of this been given in the past.

These stark omissions do provoke the darkest suspicions and his credibility nay utter moral standing will be in tatters until we know otherwise.

This is not a private matter when if we recall in 2011 he criticised Jimmy Carr for being in a similar scheme. He is judged by his own public platform.

A moving and relevant talk about profound personal grief
 
Joe Biden lost his son Beau yesterday.  This is from about three years ago.
I have never thought much of the man more than in passing.  I am not a big fan of politicians in general.  That changed today.  What a genuine and decent human being.  Raw and emotional, a man of character.  It is worth your time.

• Foreign Policy  - 
 
From the begining of the Ukraine issue when EU institutions pulled hard on the then government and its people's to decide on being orientated towards Europe this was bound to exert pressure on a country which is a fault line between European and Russian ethnic groups.

We in the west have to take some responsibility for what has occurred. Ukraine has never existed in a vacumn historically or geographically. The government in the country has been an uneasy tug of war where arguably democracy has taken second place and the lack of resolution of the East versus west situation. Russia's access for its navy to the Mediteranean via the Crimea is seen as so vital to Russia's interests that the threat to place this under 'other' as yet undefined influence was bound to be acted upon. This is not to say that Russia is right in its actions, its covert support for a democratically fragile and arguably corrupt regime is also a major part of this, however where do we go from here.
 
The institutions within world bodies have failed the people's of the Ukraine and we now seek a firm role for disinterested parties such as the UN and it seems Germany as a direct conduit, to do the boring but steady work to heal this.
 
Russia's hold and pressure on the governments of Ukraine through the dependence of gas and oil through Russian pipelines has to be scrutinised but also the EU's understanding that the country should never ever be finally decided on fixed identities which suit the ideas of certain traditions and allegiances from east and west but fataly fail a complex society

#UKpolitics #panamapapers #Davidcameron

Sorry to have to say but Jeremy Corbyn this morning on the Andrew Marr show failed to focus on the killer point which is that the lack of candour by Cameron reflects on who he represents, what values he espouses and the key point which is he wishes to hide this from the electorate because it would cause a complete change of perception of the rationale of his policies.

His association with offshore tax arrangements shows his continued allegiance that this is OK despite the political messaging we have been subject to. It hides the fact of this neoliberal economic age that there has been a flight to capital when wages and other social provision has been forced onto the defensive and offshore, opaque investments are a massive part of this.

That game is up we should drive it home with more clarity and force. Sadly Corbyn lacks this part of his game plan. We must improve on this as the news agenda is now slipping to ennui and timing is all important.

▶ Introduce Yourself  - 
 
Hello, I hope that you will accept a Brit into these useful debates. Why join a predominately US orientated political forum? Because US politics have a connection and impact with many in the world and we in in the UK have common themes on the issues of how we step into a post 2007 world and how this effects the balance between the values and boundaries we challenge and the pursuit of power to make the changes we believe in.

In the UK I am a supporter of the Labour Party.

I receive valuable insight from BBC and Al-Jazira, so I joining a US political forum makes perfect sense.

This is the place to sit with others in a social atmostphere where you all get to share the moment when quality arrives on a plate leaving you relaxed. John the chef/cook does this becuae he loves it and this shows in the ambience as well as the food. DO VISIT THIS.

One of the most charming of places to go to any where in the South East of England. Its a place for that special occassion with friends. Organic food of this quality does come with a price tag but its worth it.
