The Scriptonite Weekly Digest – Scriptonite’s Round Up of the News

Happy Sunday Readers,

Here is you summary of the week’s news in articles from the Scriptonite Daily Blog, all in one place.  As you didn’t get one last week, I have included those articles as well.

This week seems to have been a bit of a lull as people try to comprehend some pretty horrifying new realities – such as PRISM, the spying ring and some of the full impacts of the ideological austerity programme.

We are now coming towards the G8 process where the leaders of the neoliberal project will meet to discuss their next steps.  I will be attending the Alternate G8 on June 22nd, which is where those outside of the neoliberal project – writers, thinkers, economists, scientists – come together to share their ideas on how to confront the hunger, poverty, ecological harm, and inequality of power and wealth created by the G8 and their system.

If you would like to donate to support the blog, your contribution would be most appreciated.  There are no ads on the site, and pay walls strike me as too exclusive.  So, I simply ask that you pay what you can and what you feel these writings have been worth to you this week.  You can do so by clicking here, please do.

  1. What about A blog on the frozen pension issue whereby half a million pensioners receive no annual uprated pension because of where they have chosen to retire which is a totally irrelevant reason to do so and is the result of a government regulation that freezes them which is bundled in with the Benefits uprating which is a pretty sick way of stealing from pensioners. These pensioners represent just 4% of all pensioners worldwide and the National Insurance fund is in a surplus situation of about 28 billion GBP.

    • Imeant to add that the 2nd reading of the Pensions Bill is due on Monday 17th June and this could be corrected by the removal of clause 20. But will they do it ?
