Interesting analysis of UKIP voters by YouGov: Some 87 per cent of Ukip voters feel that "politicians don't listen to the likes of me", compared with 55 per cent of Conservative voters, 77 per cent of Labour voters, 64 per cent of Liberal Democrat voters and 78 per cent of Green party voters. The survey also found that slightly over 80% of UKIP voters believed that life was better 30 years ago than it is now, and as consistent with other polling, YouGov also found UKIP voters to veer to the right on Social Policy but very Left-Wing on economics- Some 85% of UKIPers want the railways to be nationalised, with around 70% saying that they wanted utilities to be taken into public ownership. UKIP voters also tend to be, on average, poorer than any other kind of voter. Definitely the disillusioned white working class.

Well worth a read esp for Social Policy students Inequality hurts everyone apart from the super-rich – and here's why The extraordinary success of Thomas Piketty's best-seller shows that progressive ideas are at last winning • o Chris Huhne o o The Guardian, Monday 28 April 2014 o Jump to comments (515) ‘Even the IMF suggests that rising inequality, far from being a price worth paying, actually slows down growth.' Illustration by Andrzej Krauze Ideas, as well as interests, matter in politics. They shape the debate and determine plausible policy prescriptions. From the 1970s onwards, the intellectual and political current has run strongly against equality. The Reagan-Thatcher consensus on low taxes, and their suspicion of redistribution, has been remarkably powerful. The Blair-Brown government had a lower top rate of income tax for all its 13 years than Thatcher did for nine. Greater inequality has often been seen as a price worth paying for economic gains. The intellectual tide may, however, be turn ...

I'm struggling to find any point in Mike Elrick's article* other than a feebly contrived and decidedly tacky attempt to drape the anti-independence campaign in some of the respect that John Smith still commands. Stealing the clothes off the corpse of a well-loved man is certainly not beneath the people who brought you Project Fear and what is fast developing into one of the nastiest propaganda campaigns since Dr Goebbels set the standard to which the dark arts operatives of the British state now aspire. I'm uncomfortable even mentioning such things in the same breath as someone like John Smith. But Mike Elrick started it, so I feel obliged to point out that, if Smith was as aware of the democratic deficit as is claimed - which I have absolutely no reason to doubt - then, being an astute political observer and an honest man, he would surely acknowledge that devolution has signally failed to address the problem in the way that he hoped it might. As an honourable man, John Smith would not have been bou ...

When it comes to the world's maternity leaves report card, not all countries are passing with flying colours. In a report by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the majority of the United States (excluding two states) received a failing grade in providing women and new mothers support entering motherhood. In at least 178 countries around the world, paid leave is guaranteed for working moms, while more than 50 countries provide wage benefits for fathers, according to the ILO. The United States, along with Papua New Guinea, Swaziland, Liberia and Lesotho are some of the only countries in the world that provide no type of financial support for mothers, according to a study done by McGill University’s Institute for Health and Social Policy. Maternity leaves aren't simply a matter of time off for childcare -- they can also strongly impact the rest of a child's life. According to a report by non-governmental organization Save The Children, in countries with longer per ...
Asenati Lole-Taylor MP Spokesperson for Social Policy 18 December 2013 CHILD SUPPORT SCHEME DELAYS PENALISE FAMILIES New Zealand First has questioned the Government’s lack of preparation in implementing reforms to the Child Support Scheme Amendment Act. Inland Revenue informed the Government that more time is needed to implement the new scheme, which will not come into place until 1 April 2015 with remaining changes rolling out a year later. Social policy spokesperson Asenati Lole-Taylor says the Government needs to immediately address the on-going delays in the child support scheme as it would see many parents in shared care agreements penalised for a further 12 months. “This is the second time it has been delayed to enable the IRD enough time to implement the changes. “During the first stages of the select committee process the IRD was questioned if their technology and systems were competent enough to handle the reforms, so why has it taken the Government until now to realise they are not? “Wit ...
ERNESTO TALVI ;Nonresident Senior Fellow and Director, Brookings Global-CERES Economic and Social Policy in Latin America Initiative. Latin America, particularly countries such as Brazil and Argentina that are commodity-exporting and less dependent on the U.S. economic cycle, have had close to a decade of exceptional growth, doubling the region's long-run average. This period of exuberance was underpinned by sound macroeconomic policies, but largely propelled by cheap and abundant inflows of foreign capital and high commodity prices. High growth and active redistribution policies made possible by plentiful fiscal resources led to a 13 percentage point decline in poverty rates in Latin America, a 5 percentage point decline in extreme poverty rates, and the emergence of an incipient middle class. Since mid- to late 2011, however, Latin America's growth rates have cooled substantially as growth in important emerging economies lost steam (in particular, China's growth rate declined from previous skyrocketing ...
LIVING WAGE WEEK – A FLAWED IDEA This week has been the annual “Living Wage” week, when campaigners attempt to draw focus to the fact that millions of people are paid below what focus groups determine should be an acceptable wage to account for the basic cost of living in the UK, given the current tax and benefit structures. The Centre for Research in Social Policy (CRSP) at Loughborough University (for the UK, excluding London) and the Greater London Authority (for London) calculate family size-adjusted hourly wage rates that are necessary to cover “minimum living costs”, rent, council tax and childcare provision, such that someone working a 37.5 hour working week would be able to live comfortably. This year, given that the cost of living is currently rising faster than average earnings, the CRSP decided to limit the increase to reflect the ability of employers to pay the increased rate. The hourly wage rates suggested by the Living Wage Foundation to constitute the Living Wage for 2013 are the ...

£500 OVERALL BENEFIT CAP – IMPACT IN TOTTENHAM A TEST-BED FOR WELFARE REFORM A single mother living in Tottenham , who wants to be anonymous, with all the hard work of rearing seven children but not in paid work, has had her housing benefit reduced to 50 pence a week by the Government’s £500 overall benefit cap. Tottenham is in the Borough of Haringey, which is a test-bed for that cap. The 50 pence housing benefit will be swallowed by 20% of the council tax, or £5.10 a week on band C, imposed by the Haringey council. Her benefit income net of rent and council tax was £537.78 a week plus £245 housing benefit. The £500 cap with the council tax wipes out the housing benefit and leaves her with £277.68 to pay for food, fuel, clothing, transport and other necessities. Her income net of council tax and rent both before and after the £500 cap are far below the level needed for a minimum acceptable standard of living. Donald Hirsch, Director of the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough ...
There are 250,000 Muslims living in the San Francisco Bay Area, they are well-educated (with 75 percent having attended college), their median household income is $70,686 (slightly less than the average for the region), and more than 3 out of 5 Muslims volunteer their time, which is more than twice the rate of volunteering by all Bay Area residents. Those are some of the highlights of a groundbreaking study of Bay Area Muslims done by Zaytuna co-founder Dr. Hatem Bazian and Dr. Farid Senzai of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU). “Over the past 30 years, the Bay Area in general, and the Muslim population in particular, has experienced significant growth brought on by the region’s economic transformation and the emergence of the information technology industry,” the authors state in the study. Credible information about American Muslims is sorely lacking and hampers a true understanding of the community and its increasing numbers in the country. Now, this benchmark study provides ...
Last October, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech. Representatives from the Islamist side included Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding trial in 2008, as well as functioning as a Muslim Brotherhood Front. The leader of the Islamist attack was Sahar Aziz, an Egyptian-born American lawyer and Fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a Muslim advocacy group based in Michigan. At the meeting, the Islamists lobbied for: Cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training Limits on the power of terrorism investigators Changes in agent training manuals A legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination Aziz said that the word “Muslim” has become “racialized” and, once American criticism of Islam was silenced, the effect would be to "take [fed ...

IBNLive.com Providing Modi with a platform to speak a political act: Ania Loomba, dissenting professor POLITICS, Updated Mar 07, 2013 at 11:11am IST Narendra Modi's keynote address at the India Economic Forum organised by The Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania, scheduled for March 23, was cancelled after a protest petition by three University of Pennsylvania academics - Ania Loomba, Catherine Bryson Professor of English; Suvir Kaul, A M Rosenthal Professor of English and Toorjo Ghose, Assistant Professor at the School of Social Policy and Practice - which received support from various quarters of the American academic and non-academic society. Modi has always been a polarising figure and the Wharton saga has been no different. Many have supported him and some have not. IBNLive asked Professor Ania Loomba certain questions related to the controversy.

Swimming in Debt: Wealth Gap Between Blacks and Whites Has Tripled February 27, 2013 | Filed under: BizTechNews | Posted by: bowatkin by Dr. Boyce Watkins The wealth gap in America has been a persistent problem in this country since its founding. Over 400 years of slavery and a series of Jim Crow laws designed to restrict the accumulation of wealth and power has left the black community seeking to rebuild financially from it’s challenged past. To date, African American families have far more debt and far fewer assets than the typical white family in America. During the recent recession, the wealth gap between blacks and whites nearly doubled, with whites having nearly 22 times as much wealth as African Americans. A new study from Brandeis University’s Institute on Assets and Social Policy says that the growing gap is part of a long-term trend in differences between wealth, debt and income levels between whites and blacks. According to the center, the wealth of whites has grown a great deal over t ...

An unpleasant discovery, maybe only skin deep, but disturbing and heart-wrenched nonetheless, was made by the author as he attended his latest college class. Having previously been suspicious of his classmates might be reactionary and conservative-thinking people, he was relieved, somewhat, after hearing stirling defences of oppressed groups, from the LGBT community to single mothers, and he could forgive the odd backward opinion here and there. But today was very different. Perhaps it was the nature of the lesson's topic, perhaps it was a particular day of angry feelings, perhaps and by sheer coincidence the majority of the class had negative experiences to draw upon during discussions, but ultimately the author had to sit through an hour and a half of virtually the entire class engaging in the most brutally ignorant attacks on the poor. The lesson on Thursday afternoons is 'Social Policy', where the actions of past and present British governments with regards to health and social well-being are examined ...

February 15 Lecture: Bruce Western "Mass Incarceration and the Prospects for Reform" 6 p.m., Vollum lecture hall Bruce Western is a professor of sociology and director of the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. His recent work has focused on the link between social inequality and the growth of prison and jail populations in the United States. He finds that the penal system has become a common presence in the lives of poor Americans, with lasting effects on their life chances. Western has written numerous articles and books, including Punishment and Inequality in America(Russell Sage Foundation, 2006).

CNN iReport: Are you feeling the drop in net worth? The racial wealth divide is nothing new. Black and Hispanic Americans have historically had lower incomes, higher unemployment and less education. That makes it more difficult for these groups to save money and put their capital to work building wealth, said Tatjana Meschede, research director of the Institute on Assets and Social Policy at Brandeis University. The Great Recession exacerbated the problem. In 2005, the net worth difference wasn't quite as stark. Whites had 12 times more wealth than blacks and 8 times more than Hispanics. The main reason blacks and Hispanics did not fare as well during the economic downturn is that home equity makes up more of their wealth than it does for whites. The housing bubble that preceded the collapse pushed up homeownership rates among blacks and Hispanics, who relied more heavily on high-cost subprime loans to finance their purchases. As a result, the implosion of the real estate market had a more devastating imp ...

OBASANJO is Corrupt, Petty and Vindictive - Atiku Abubakar Camp. **he is impulsive dictatorial and believed a lot in gossips & rumours. **OBJ secured the cooperation of the EFCC chairman, Nuhu Ribadu, in dealing with whomsoever he want to single out for punishment. WARNING: LARGE VOLUME POST. If you thought that the rift between former President Obasanjo and his deputy, Atiku Abubakar, had healed you have another think coming as Atiku's media men have just released a book portraying Obasanjo as being corrupt, petty and vindictive. The book titled 'Atiku Media Office: The Wars, The Victories' is soon to be presented to the public. Except from the BOOK. It was clear that the President did not want a strong Vice President or one with a mind of his own. It was also clear by his decision to build a structure of his own that he had a hidden agenda, which was then unknown to Atiku. If indeed they were working as a team, as Obasanjo often claimed, why would he need his own platform outside the PDP? Even as Obasan ...
President Bashar al-Assad on Sunday delivered a speech at the Opera House in Damascus in which he touched upon the latest developments in Syria and the region. The following in the full text of President al-Assad's speech: Mr. Primer, Ministers, Heads and members of the leaderships of popular organizations and trade unions, Sisters and brothers, Today I look at your faces and the faces of the people of our country as they are covered with sorrow and pain. I look into the eyes of Syria's children and I don't see an innocent laugh shinning, nor do I see toys that draw a smile on their faces. I watch the hands of elderly people and see them open to prayer for the safety of a son, a daughter or a grandson. We meet today with suffering prevailing over Syria's land leaving no room for joy in any corner of the homeland. Safety and security have been absent from the country's streets and alleys. We meet today and there are mothers who lost their sons, families who lost their breadwinners, children wh ...

BROADCAST TO THE NATION BY PRIME MINISTER, THE MOST HON. PORTIA SIMPSON MILLER SUNDAY, JANUARY 6, 2013 THEME: LET'S UNITE AND BUILD My fellow Jamaicans: A year ago my administration assumed office, propelled by the hopes and aspirations of a nation that wanted a new type of governance characterized by humility, honesty, inclusiveness, respect and trust. We came to office at a difficult time on the platform of people power, and I have never allowed that to escape my mind. Our record over the year has not been perfect, but it has been persistent. We have restored trust; brought back respect and decency to governance while making important progress in some key areas. Our mission of uplifting the Jamaican people and working toward economic independence was challenged during the past year by the slippage of the Jamaican dollar. The Net International Reserves also dipped, but not our reserve of courage, determination and resilience in the face of the international economic environment and domestic challenges. Y ...
Let’s Save South Australia from Waste and Mismanagement Today is the day that we as South Australians draw a line in the sand and take back control of our state and control of our lives.

In the mean time it is ordinary South Australians, working hard, Raising families, planning futures that are wearing the consequences. WASTE AND MISMANAGEMENT Over the years prior to the GFC, South Australians have seen increased revenue flowing into the state. YET have our taxes been reduced? Are our hospitals running better?

A law firm sent the following advice to its clients in December, which, in keeping with so much advice from government bureaucracies, local councils and human resource departments, was unnecessary, passive-aggressive and constricting:
Economic development generally refers to the sustained, concerted actions of policymakers and communities that promote the standard of living and economic health of a specific area. Economic development can also be referred to as the quantitative and qualitative changes in the economy. Such actions can involve multiple areas including development of human capital, critical infrastructure, regional competitiveness, environmental sustainability, social inclusion, health, safety, literacy, and other initiatives. Economic development differs from economic growth. Whereas economic development is a policy intervention endeavor with aims of economic and social well-being of people, economic growth is a phenomenon of market productivity and rise in GDP.
I think social networking should have an age policy
I had a confusing conversation with someone today. This otherwise intelligent and observant dude actually said, "The two party system should be abolished." Huh? Two party system? What two party system? I mean, doesn't there actually need to BE a two party system before we can abolish it? Saying we should get rid of the two party system is like saying the Tooth Fairy should be arrested. If a magical pervert who breaks into your kids' bedroom and collects their body parts actually existed, I'd agree that she ought to be apprehended and exterminated. But she doesn't so she can't be. Similarly, if a political system wherein a duopoly of two ideologically opposed groups were in constant gridlock due to their fundamental and irreconcilable philosophical differences actually existed, I'd agree that we ought to abolish it and establish a system with more than two parties. But it doesn't so we can't. This nation is run by a rigid and ruthless monopoly. It may assume different names but all of its members strive fo ...

"The message this sends is one of sheer contempt for the American taxpayer. $7 million may be viewed by the White House as a drop in the ocean compared to the overall size of America’s federal debt, but it is the principle that counts. The vast majority of American people simply couldn’t afford the kind of vacation enjoyed by the US president, not least at a time when 12.2 million Americans are still out of work. For most of America’s embattled middle class, who, unlike the president have already returned to work, this kind of luxury is simply unimaginable in the current economic climate. And they’ve just been hit hard with a significant rise in their payroll taxes due to the expiration of the Social Security tax break. According to the Tax Policy Center, 77 percent of US households will now be paying more in federal taxes following this week’s fiscal cliff deal."

Sweden: The Triumph of Cultural Marxism Mona Sahlin, leader of the Swedish Social Democratic Party, confirmed that her party and the Greens want to form a coalition government in 2010. What kind of policy will such a government follow? Miljöpartiet de Gröna, the Swedish Green Party, state on their official website that the education system should start working for "gender equality" at an early age; children need counterweights to the gender roles which girls and boys are raised into. Therefore teachers and personnel in child care services must finish an education in equality before they are given their exams. They also want to abolish grades in schools: "We want to do away with the grade system [in today's schools]. Grades contribute considerably to stress and are not a fair and objective system of measuring the individual's potential." The Green Party favor ideological Globalism in its purest form. They want a "world citizenship" to replace the national citizenship, totally free migration on a global b ...

A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role." With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society. The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands .. The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law." The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigran ...
Here's a challenge to libertarians - and I am interested in your responses. Libertarians' chief principle is the non-aggression principle. But they also staunchly defend private property. Since in nearly all cases, land was originally co-opted by force by government, how can the two be reconciled when it comes to the ownership of land? RELEVANT QUOTE: "In California our land titles go back to the Supreme Government of Mexico, who took from the Spanish King, who took from the Pope, when he by a stroke of the pen divided lands yet to be discovered between the Spanish or Portuguese—or if you please they rest upon conquest. In the eastern states they go back to treaties with Indians and grants from English kings; in Louisiana to the government of France; in Florida to the government of Spain; while in England they go back to the Norman conquerors. Everywhere, not to a right which obliges, but to a force which compels." - Henry George
Scholars may shun CPU research funds amid politicisation suspicions SCMP 7-1-2-13 Academics say they may shun a public policy research grant scheme because of questions about its impartiality and academic rigour, after the government took management of the fund away from scholars and gave it to the administration's top think tank. One professor said if scholars accepted funding for projects from the new scheme, academic careers may not be helped as universities and other scholars could discount such research. The Public Policy Research Funding Scheme, which until last month was administered by the Research Grants Council (RGC), has been one of the major sources of research funds for social scientists since its establishment in 2005. The scheme has dispensed HK$20 million annually, and last year it sponsored 25 projects, researching topics that ranged from columbariums to cross-border low-carbon transport. The research fund was generally considered to bear academic merit as it was awarded after a rigorous ...

MAN AND NATURE From the time of the creation of Adam to this day there have been two pathways in the world of humanity; one the natural or materialistic, the other the religious or spiritual. The pathway of nature is the pathway of the animal realm. The animal acts in accordance with the requirements of nature, follows its own instincts and desires. Whatever its impulses and proclivities may be it has the liberty to gratify them; yet it is a captive of nature. It cannot deviate in the least degree from the road nature has established. It is utterly minus spiritual susceptibilities, ignorant of divine religion and without knowledge of the kingdom of God. The animal possesses no power of ideation or conscious intelligence; it is a captive of the senses and deprived of that which lies beyond them. It is subject to what the eye sees, the ear hears, the nostrils sense, the taste detects and touch reveals. These sensations are acceptable and sufficient for the animal. But that which is beyond the range of the s ...

(Doric: Σπάρτα; Attic: Σπάρτη Spártē), or Lacedaemon, was a prominent city-state in ancient Greece, situated on the banks of the Eurotas River in Laconia, in south-eastern Peloponnese.

HP Compaq HSTNN-105C Battery During c. 650 BC, it rose to become the dominant military land-power in ancient Greece.

Social Security: It’s Worse Than You Think CONGRESS and President Obama have pushed through a relatively modest stopgap measure to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” but over the coming years, the United States will confront another huge cliff: Social Security. In the first presidential debate, Mr. Obama described Social Security as “structurally sound,” and Mitt Romney said that “neither the president nor I are proposing any changes” to the program. It was a rare issue on which both men agreed — and both were utterly wrong. For the first time in more than a quarter-century, Social Security ran a deficit in 2010: It spent $49 billion dollars more in benefits than it received in revenues, and drew from its trust funds to cover the shortfall. Those funds — a $2.7 trillion buffer built in anticipation of retiring baby boomers — will be exhausted by 2033, the government currently projects. Those facts are widely known. What’s not is that the Social Security Administration underestimates how long ...

Let's talk about Rome! NO, let's talk about the USA! --Michael-- Bread and Circuses II: America in Decay Students of history are familiar with the great accomplishments of the various civilizations they study, and often compare significant developments in the course of a civilization with the trends and developments of their own. A common saying in academic circles is, "A generation which ignores history has no past - and no future." I would therefore not be surprised to learn that students of the Roman Empire are now hoarding gold, learning to grow their own food and raise livestock,and stocking up on firearms and ammunition. Rome did not fall because of an intelligent and planned conquest by a determined enemy, but because the citizens of Rome no longer believed in the self sufficiency of the individual. The situation in America today is terrifyingly similar, with apathy and selfishness the two most obvious traits apparent in our citizens. The citizens of the Roman Republic at its zenith understood and ...
I agree that the info on the shrinking middle class is accurate except for which should include the military. The military is a welfare state in itself as it produces no usable product or quality for society - not even the elusive "Freedom" that weapons and warfare are suppose to generate accordi...
When done well, assessment illuminates understanding of what innovations work, and what needs to change. Assessment, then, has a vital role to play in supporting innovators themselves, as well as enabling leaders and managers to make informed decisions on policy instruments, and funders and investor...
I was honored this evening to attend this powerful gathering of social justice faith community activists who are organizing for the people's legislature to promote public policy that creates greater opportunity, enhances the productive capacity of all people to meaningfully build a sustainable economy, empowers regular people to be free from exploitation whether it be from clever predatory finance sector practices of from the bigotry of racism. Rabbi Adam Spilker, Rev. Paul Slack, Rev. Jonathan Zielske, and Rev. Joseph Baring centered us on those common values of justice that our faiths call to us to act on. Rep Erin Murphy, Sen. *** Cohen spoke powerfully about how the needed public revenues for a structurally sound Minnesota that balances its immediate budget AND balances the work that needs to be done for our state to be prosperous (e.g. better fund education, safety net, job training etc) can't be demeaned by those who will argue that Democrats are "starting" their new control with taxing. After year ...
A little status update on our post on inflation. We said we're for it. We said you need to google "zero lower bound"; because you do. Sometimes - we don't always give the answers. Sometimes users have the debate and answer the questions. More inflation is good because it actually forces people with lots of capital (the 1% to put it to use in the economy instead of laying waste and losing its value via attrition. Inflation is a tax on capital but it also eliminates DEBT. Who has debt? The middle class. Also - Government. So it spurs growth. Now someone said we just need to look to history to understand why a gold backed currency is the way to go. Let me share this little fact. There have been FOUR Depressions in American history. FOUR. All of them were under the Gold standard. Fact.
Late night social policy essaying in Library. Stornoway playing and pack of (veggie) Percy Pigs. There is some form of winning there.
Taking this from Benjamin Newland's post to my own status to see what trouble I can stir up. I don't want to take away your guns. I do, however, want to require that you have to go through a psychiatric exam and a firearm safety course before purchasing any sort of high powered hand gun or rifle. Why? Because the Right is correct on one point. Guns DON'T kill people. They, however, make it easier for a mentally ill or ignorant person to put a magazine into a class full of children. The problem ISN'T guns, the problem is the society we live in that doesn't teach personal responsibility and stigmatizes mental illness. Until we learn to address these issues, the only solution is to be more cautious with who is allowed to purchase a weapon that can destroy 20+ lives in a matter of minutes. This is why I am 100% for gun control. What say you?
