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 !!

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.

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.



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.

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.
