How can anyone working class vote Conservatives?

Green (Living) Review

The Labour Party, founded, originally, as a socialist party, has become social-democrat, and even, as far as so-called “New Labour” and its outcrops are concerned, neo-liberal, and thus an enemy of the working class themselves. And a very crucial element in those Tory victories was the working class vote. Working class Tories. Ever since working class people won the right to vote a large number of workers have voted for the Conservatives.

Labour has deserted the working class

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) RMT general secretary Bob Crow has accused Labour of deserting the working class and called for a new political party rooted in the trade unions after Ed Miliband promised Labour would cap benefits spending if elected to office. The Labour Party rose out of the trade unions and the movements of the working class but, since Blair, has been stabbing the working class in the back.

"Classes canceled; university closed until noon March 7"

Environmental Economics

From the inbox: All classes are canceled Friday, March 7. This makes an entire week that the university has canceled my MWF 10-10:50 Stats II class. That said, a week of class is a long time. Several years ago the TR morning classes missed two weeks of class. The only things I can think of is to have (a) some extra class days built in to the academic calendar or (b) have all classes with web content.

Bad News for On-Line Classes

Environmental Economics

Online classes are already common in colleges, and, on the whole, the record is not encouraging. Over all, the center has produced nine studies covering hundreds of thousands of classes in two states, Washington and Virginia.

Austerity a cover for class war against the poor

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Austerity is being used as a cover-story for class war against the poor Austerity and deficit reduction are being used as a cover-story for conducting class war against the poor as simultaneous reductions in taxes on the wealthy and cuts to spending on social security amount to a redistribution of wealth away from the poor to the rich. Thus it can be called nothing else but class war, or maybe we could even go as far to call it warfare on the poor.

The Party – the working class movement – is always right

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The slogan “The Party is always right” was misinterpreted and thus misused to mean that everything that the party of the working class – the communist party – did could not be questioned as it was always right. Comrade Lenin himself warned against the notion of the party knowing always best at all times, against this notion of infallibility, when he urged self-criticism and the acceptance of criticism by the working class.

Welfare reform reinforces growing class prejudice reminiscent of Victorian era

Green (Living) Review

Middle class research participants tended to identify and condemn ‘chav’ culture so as to validate and re-affirm their own superior social position. Working class respondents were more likely to identify and condemn ‘chav’ culture in order to distinguish themselves from it. The evidence presented here is based on 90 interviews which were conducted with participants from a variety of different social classes and ethnic backgrounds.

Meat is becoming the food of the lower classes

Green (Living) Review

One of the reasons for meat abstinence among the upper classes are the many scandals surrounding meat. The eating habits of the upper classes, for example, are undergoing radical changes: In the old times the higher their social status was the more meat the consumed. Those with a high disposable income and those who have degrees eat the lowest amount of meat while among the lower classes eat more cutlets and sausages.

The Transition Movement and the Working Class

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Attracting the working class Transition Towns and the Transition Movement as a whole suffer from an image problem in that the ordinary man and woman in the street seem to see it as something only for the better of middle and upper classes; for those “who can afford it”, and those in predominately rural settings. The Green Movement and the Transition Movement have so far, in the main, been unable to touch the working class and this must change.
