As we eat perhaps even more chocolate than usual on a day for the Christians among us, the masses go round stuffing their faces unaware or uncaring at the level of our corporate exploitation of black workers. Slavery never went away, it just got buried by those in the marketing and advertising professions whose evil daily work covers up their corporate masters greed and profiteering at any cost. Economic slaves taste chocolate for the first time
We found a great Fullers pub not far from Paddington station, The Victoria. Nice sunny day as well.
John McDonnell describes his blueprint for saving UK steel production, Save UK steel production
If everybody in the UK had a duty to vote in national elections and there was a box on the ballot paper that said none of the above I’m fairly certain as to what “party” would win the election on May the 7th. And of course our dear leader saying that he wouldn’t stand for a third term, well why would he when so many fat cat pay checks await in corporate land, the same organisations that he helped while being PM. I mean how can he possibly on a politician’s salary. And he is hardly likely to become one of the people and stack shelves in a supermarket or drive a taxi is he?
We don’t have a choice. The majority of the tiny turnout on May the 7th will vote Tory or Labour and we really don’t have a choice as both of them will spend £50 billion of our hard earned UK pounds on the HS2 without even asking us. That’s just so democratic isn’t it?
In Switzerland there would have been a vote but not here as we can’t afford it but somehow we can afford £50 billion. Probably the real reason is that if Britain had a democracy then most of our players and that is what they are wouldn’t be in the job anyway.
Oh well back to the hypocrisy rather than a democracy.
One of the species of trees that England is famous for, the oak, seen here on this hot summer’s day providing shade in this field. I need to read about the subject again but if I remember correctly a lot of the country was stripped of these in the past to build the ships that put the Great in Britain depending on how you look at the country’s history.

The Southbank in London may not be to everyone’s taste but it is there so leave it alone developers! Built when pouring concrete to create large monolithic structures was almost as popular in Britain as it must have been in the former Soviet Union the arts centre is a true public space. Back in 2011 the centre celebrated its 60th anniversary. As part of that there were some temporary fountains set up and on one sunny Saturday in June children were playing in the fountains. I was lucky enough to catch this photo of one of them getting caught out although maybe it was on purpose. Although it is a public space there is room for improvement on the pricing of the performances which, as with most other places and events in London, creates exclusion. You can see and buy more of our photographs on our Junagarh Flickr site or our website, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
As is usual with Private Eye a great mix of visual gags and serious comment guaranteed to please some and annoy others. It is such an important journal in exposing those who are trying to take the rest of us for a ride. If you haven’t tried it yet then pick up a copy. It is very compact and the only celebrities in it are those they make fun of. Need we say more?
