Alliance of Labour, Ukip and Occupy members attempt to reform City of London

It’s an unlikely political alliance: members of Labour and Ukip, veterans of the Occupy movement, clerics and non-party political newcomers — all signed up to an agenda backed by, among others, the Tory MP David Davis.

Yet after last month’s Eastleigh byelection pointed the way towards a possible breaking of the mould in British politics, the slate of candidates assembled under the umbrella of the City Reform Group are seeking to do just that for the local authority that governs the country’s powerful financial heart – the Square Mile.

    Nigel Farage is a scion of the Financial Class and his party has ZERO interest in reforming the British Financial fraudsters. In fact they want to protect the lawless zone at the heart of London. Scoundrels hiding behind patriotism.

    Financial services is an evil, evil business where they syphon money from the rest of humanity, for producing nothing of value, however if you are one of the unlucky people that lives in the UK (like me) then you actually need the banking industry. The banking industry pays 20% of the taxes. If that disappears then ladies and gents, we’re f@@ked!

    @ Vonda. Yeah, a real surprise. For anybody with a feeble sense of logic that should have been clear from the very beginning (or, at least, from the London riots episode, when Farage called for the army to stop the dangerous criminals). Liberals in Europe are nothing but banksters apologists and a loyal courtesan workforce for oligarchs interests.

    Since libertarians in Europe are not much more than a radical marxist-anarchist minority, liberty seems to be orphan around here. We do not have a case for liberty in Europe anymore- our options are dire, indeed.

    The City will not fall by the means of righteous citizens. They will succumb by themselves after having plundered every single asset in the british islands and, for that matter, in the world. The UKIP, the tories and labors are all part of the problem- their trying to fix it in the last second will not make a difference (the ahrm is already done, anyways), but it could make for an interesting chapter of the collapse novel. I would like to be wrong. Lets see.

    “The banking industry pays 20% of the taxes” – are you sure? aren’t they experts at tax avoidance?

  6. Chris says:

    Yup I’m 100%. Check the government stats. I don’t like the banking industry but the UK has nothing else going for it
