First hour news review: with Labour councillor for Ashley Mike Davies. Carole Johnson, Ashley Labour councillor, continually hasn’t responded; what is Labour’s future? Labour 'grandee' Lord Mandelson on why Labour lost – impractically of Labour policies – indifference of Labour left – PR – not listening to the electorate; Michael Foot, 1975, about being enmeshed in EU machinery – not democratic; Change Britain compilation, of politicians all saying Brexit will happen; why did Labour lose election; half homeless households have jobs in Knowsley, Liverpool; insecure Britain: Insecure Britain – we are two and a half pay cheques away from homelessness on average
A new survey finds three quarters of Brits worry that if their financial situation changed in just one way, they might end up losing their home, or evicted; knife crime – at a 10 year high; but WHY? Gang culture being encouraged from the top? Osborne includes prostitution and drugs; Prostitution and illegal drugs add £12.27bn to the economy. Drugs industry based on CIA Iran Contra to build up off-books slush funds; The Mafia and state are merging, or perhaps its simpler, the mafia are taking over the state apparatus?

Kier Starmer and the execution of Brazilian electrician Jean Charles Menezes; Kier Starmer no one charged for extraordinary rendition: Keir Starmer is a bad choice for Labour – it’s just too easy for Boris Johnson to destroy his reputation. As director of public prosecutions, Starmer refused to prosecute the police officers accused of killing Jean Charles de Menezes and Ian Tomlinson. It wouldn’t take much for a handful of cases to turn Starmer into a textbook establishment stooge – in the eyes of both right and left. In 2009-10, Starmer refused to prosecute the police officers who killed Jean Charles de Menezes and Ian Tomlinson. In 2012, Starmer announced that MI5 and MI6 agents would not face charges of torture and extraordinary rendition during the Iraq War; Jess Phillips and ancient anti-Israel tweets of suspended researcher Salma Hamid. None of these statements appear to be criticising Jews. They're all targeting racism by the Israeli state, yet classed as potentially antisemitic by The Daily Mail, Jess Phillips and, yes, the Labour party - 10 point plan to tackle alleged anti Semitism; Rebecca Long-Bailey leads way in committing to 10-point pledge to address Islamophobia

Plastic and other toxic rubbish burned in new Avonmouth incinerator – Anti-incinerator campaigner. Charlie Holmes from rural Florence in Italy on burning waste and unchecked emissions of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic nano particles drifting towards Bristol on the prevailing wind – When inhaled, some types of nanoparticles have been shown to act like asbestos, inflaming lung tissue and leading to cancer. In 2009, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Cancer Research declared titanium dioxide to be “possibly carcinogenic to humans” after studies found that inhaling it in nanoparticle form caused rats to develop lung cancer and mice to suffer organ damage.

the Mafia’s role with waste - conflicts of interest between for profit incinerator firms such as Viridor/Suez and the Local Authority who cannot afford to shut them down if there are safety concerns - Burning waste – green energy or just hot air? By L orna Stephenson - A new waste incinerator is being built in Avonmouth, but critics say the industry is polluting and contradicts climate aims. The incinerators also emit significant quantities of carbon. According to Shlomo Dowen, coordinator of UKWIN, “42 incinerators in 2015 emitted a total of nearly 11 million tonnes of CO2, about five million tonnes from fossil fuel sources such as burning plastic; new Government policy – anti unauthorised encampment – Gypsies – PMQs migrant labour work in agriculture; But what about UK's traditional itinerant workers? New criminal trespass law for gypsies and travellers: George Monbiot: A government consultation being framed as a crackdown on travelling people is an assault on all citizens’ freedoms - Stormont is back, now Brexit is nearly sorted.
