Politics from a 'Marginal Constituency’ by Andy Reed

Always a useful reminder to put our own Euro elections into a wider European perspective – timely article that all points to the failure of capitalism to address the needs and concerns of the millions of people who prop it up for the rich to soak in the glory of such a ‘successful’ system and economy.

The new ‘precariat’ the article quotes… Those who just get by again. A series of zero hour contracts. Short term work and part time hours. Whilst nowhere near the same level I know that running a small business without the certainty if a pay-check from year to year is difficult enough to make long term plans but not knowing from week to week or month to month makes planning a future impossible.
