Let’s push things forward

So if, as Paul Mason observed last month, it really is kicking off everywhere could the UK be about to follow suit?  Anger at the proposed round of cuts appears to be building to an extent where even that famous agitator Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England, can point a finger at the bankers for getting away with the swindle of the century scot-free.

As a number of campaigns, the Broken of Britain amongst them, demonstrate exactly how hollow the Tories’ ‘no frontline cuts’ election promise is proving to vulnerable people, as protests against council cuts draw in those relatively new to direct action, it looks as if the initiative is finally being seized.  Where we go from here is anyone’s guess, but this writer for one hopes the destination is somewhere beyond the usual party politics.  After all, there’s nothing to lose but our chains…

Let’s push things forward!
