Extend The World War Veterans and Their Families Citizenship. Give Them Well Deserved Access to Medical Treatment.

Mothers Do Not Abandon and Forget Fallen and Scarred Surviving Heroes. British Government Did!

African & Asian WW2 Veterans.

Scandalous those Asian and African soldiers were paid, as the evidence in the war related documents show far less than white soldiers.

Wed 13 Feb 2019 “Africans who fought for British army paid less than white soldiers” https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/13/african-british-army-paid-less-than-white-soldiers

Tories are Way over Due in Action.   No Aid/ Money Paid To The Day.

First announcement made in June 2018 by Secretary of State for International Development of the United Kingdom.

It is not enough. People who laid their lives defending The Queen and  country, totally forgetting and abandoning them to destitution is very harsh treatment of the none white soldiers. Where is Their Pension?

Where they compensated?

After the war at some point they should have enjoyed and spent in comfort their remaining years. But that was not the case, having won their war on the front fighting poverty was not what they were expecting after the war.

Time to Heal the Wounds.

Announcements come plenty from the Ministers / Politicians. Deeds are rare indeed.

Government must take a sincere look at the problems faced by the living veterans and families. Give them lump sums, not two weekly based meals.

Make amends, but Honestly.

Extend The World War Veterans and Their Families Citizenship. Give Them Well Deserved Access to Medical Treatment.

“Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.” Penny Modaunt

Only to be abandoned?

Commonwealth Aid Receiving Nation,s ordinary public rarely see anything on the scale that is boasted about by our politicians in UK government. If at all.

In many cases, aid receiving nations’ public have for many decades rejected aid packages with strings attached.

Adding salt to the wounds of WW2 commonwealth veterans! “Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.” Says Penny Mordaunt.

Strategic goal aims are not compatible in terms of the needy people buried in  poverty and in Cemeteries across Asia, Middle East and Africa.


In some cases, the only bread winning member of the family was persuaded to join the war leaving no one to take care of the remaining family and kids. Over a million African soldiers had joined  WWll to serve their Queen and mother country.

Politicians need to take a deep look at how the aid is distributed.  In the case of African and Asian soldiers, their right to some type of payment, and compensation needs to be looked at.

The African nations’ Second World War veterans, the abandoned and the forgotten – whatever happened to their dues?

What ever happened to their pensions?

George Medal Awarded for Bravery

There is clear evidence ,in parts of the world, veterans who survived the 2nd world war have died of destitution.

And those that live? They are still fighting war, fighting the extreme poverty with no hope of ever coming out of their tragic situation.


Christian Aid warns Penny Mordaunt against ‘playing politics’ with international aid

International development secretary Penny Mordaunt has been criticised by charities including Christian Aid for suggesting Britain’s commitment to spending 0.7 per cent of gross national income on aid is ‘unsustainable’.

Mordaunt, who is tipped as a prospective candidate in the Conservative Party leadership elections, has said private funding should be part of the target. She has also said Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.”

Veterans Abroad and Some in UK They are Dying Fast of Poverty

Tories are lining up Penny Mordaunt as their next Party leader.

And the usual vote winning considerations?

2018     7 Months ago.  International development secretary, UK. Penny Mordaunt pledges to support Commonwealth veterans. Approximately 8,500 of these veterans or their widows are today living below the poverty line around the world, such as in India, Pakistan and a number of African countries.


2019     3 Months ago.

UK aid to protect 7,000 Commonwealth veterans of the British Armed Forces from extreme poverty

Over 7,000 veterans of the Commonwealth will receive two meals a day through UK aid, International Development Secretary announces.

Veterans numbers 8500 June 2018

Dropped to

Veterans  7000  November 2018

By the time payments, if any at all are made there is good probability few hundred veterans may still be living.



Moving Forward, Very Welcome Step Forward. A better and peaceful world is not only possible but its taking shape right now


Afzal Khan MP

“I was delighted to meet with a delegation from the Sikh and Pakistani community to discuss the development of the Kartarpur Corridor initiative.

The Pakistani government announced that access to the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur will be opened for Sikh pilgrims, in time for celebrations of the 550th anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak.

This is a big step for the global Sikh community, and also for Pakistani and Indian relations.

I would like to thank Yasmin Qureshi MP for organising this, as well as fellow parliamentarians for showing their support.

This significant milestone symbolises the cooperation between Pakistan and India and the potential to build peace between the two countries. I am hopeful this progress continues. Confidence building is critical for the South Asia region and this moment of positivity needs to carry on between India and Pakistan for the sake of their citizens “

Birmingham City Council Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling Majid Mahmood Resigns

Majid Mahmood

“It is with regret to inform you that I resigned from the post of Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling. I have found myself in a difficult position over the last few months with the effective backdoor privatisation of the nurseries, the proposals of the loss of pay to care workers together with the ongoing dispute with UNISON and the current dispute with Unite the Union around the “secret payments” to GMB. I was asked to sign off a report to seek an injunction against UNITE and UNISON using TORY party legislation that will ultimately lead to an attack on a trade union is something that I cannot be a party of.

I have very much enjoyed my time serving the city as the Cabinet Member for Clean Streets, Waste and Recycling. It has been a huge privilege and honour to hold the position establishing a really good working relationship with the workforce in street cleansing, refuse collection and waste enforcement. There are still major issues in the refusal collection and if we’re to build a long term sustainable service for the citizens changes need to be made working in conjunction with the workers.

However given the direction that the cabinet are seeking around the bins dispute, and the home care workers to take this Labour council I find myself having to compromise my socialist values of equality, fairness and justice. This is something I am not prepared to do, and I will as a backbench Labour councillor be in a better place to fight on a platform of socialism, and do my utmost to stop the cabinet making decisions that are against our Labour values.

A huge thank you to the many community groups, citizens, union colleagues that I have got to know during my role. You all do some fantastic work. Keep it up, and I am always here to help those seeking to improve the lives #FortheMany.

I will remain as a committed local councillor, and will do what I do best which is representing my constituents with my colleague Diane Donaldson in the Bromford and Hodge Hill ward. #solidarity #JC4PM

We often complain that our elected politicians/councilors are not doing enough
But when they do are we supporting them enough?
Think its time we show well deserved support where its due!

General Election Now. Thousand poured into Central London Wearing Yellow Vests.

Why Tories Must Go. Worst Post War Government.

General Election Now.  In their history Tories  never  did much for the nation.  They Consistently damaged nations wealth by creating and dramatising the need to rid off it by selling it off cheaply, such as BP and GPO  property owned  by the hard working people of Britain. Many more crown jewels were sold off by Tories, its a case where our nation has been taken for a ride to poverty.


Investment Gone,  £22bn flew away from being  invested in UK.  Job opportunities lost, 204,997 gone , Manufacturing in Danger, Job security gone. Fascists on the march. Far right Extremist numbers going up at an alarming rate.


Too many reasons for Theresa May to go. General Election has become order of the day.

Muslims under attack, Broad Street in Birmingham Petrol Bombed and as usual ignored by MSM.

Homeless numbers up, Nearly 600 homeless people died last year . Our NHS Disappearing, Wards closed, Hospital death waiting on trolleys gone up. Privatisation & Tax dodging on the increase. European parts factories close, Michelin and Schaeffler to close UK plants with 1,400 job gone. These are but just the few Tories failed Brexit mess mentions.


Large numbers of British people present in London protesting against Theresa May and her government’s BREXIT failures. General Election Now turn out in London is a massive statement demanding Tory government to hold elections

Weekend Saw a Huge yellow Vest Protest. General Election Now.

Hats off!  Now that’s commitment.    In very cold and wet weather thousands poured into Central London wearing yellow vests.

Honouring 550th Birth Anniversary of Sikhism founder Baba Guru Nanak next year. A Ground Breaking Ceremony to take place tomorrow in Kartarpur.  Pakistan.

550th Birth Anniversary of Sikhism founder Baba Guru Nanak next year

Indian leadership would not want to be seen as the massive hurdle to Sikh’s age old wish.  Modi and his fascists would never have wanted this. Still holding back, two of Modi’s prominent ministers have refused to join Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan in the ceremony of laying foundation stone at Kartarpur Corridor on Wednesday 28 November.

Sikh pilgrims from across  border in India, long standing wish to have this corridor opened has finally materialised. No visa will be required by Sikh pilgrims  to Kartarpur, Nankana Sahib and NarowalPakistan.

A 50 million Euro investment aimed at helping to end the scourge of femicide – where women and girls are killed just because of their gender – was announced at United Nations Headquarters on Thursday, thanks to the ‘political courage’ of a group of Latin American countries, said the UN deputy chief.


Amina Mohammed was speaking at a high-level event to launch the Spotlight Initiative in Argentina, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.


She described the joint UN-European Union initiative as “a bold and comprehensive response to the tragedies that we see across the world every day”, aimed at ending violence against women and girls.


“These five countries have shown the political courage to confront and end femicide – a crime that claims the lives of 12 women a day, in Latin America,” said the Deputy Secretary-General.


“Given the pervasive, universal, and entrenched nature of violence against women and girls, we knew that we would need to combine our individual efforts if we were to succeed,” she added.


Latin America is home to 14 of the 25 countries with the highest rates of femicide in the world and an astonishing 98 per cent of gender-related killings, go unprosecuted.


Ms. Mohammed said that the 50 million Euro investment would help tighten up laws and policy initiatives to curb unchecked violence against women and girls, strengthen institutions and promote gender equality overall.


It will also “provide quality services for survivors, and reparations for victims of violence and their families, producing disaggregated data so we can leave no one behind and empower women’s movements in the five priority countries.”


“Addressing femicide comprehensively from each of these angles is essential to successful and lasting results,” she added.


The UN deputy chief paid tribute to Mariana Lima – killed by her police officer husband in 2010 – and her mother, Irinea Buendía, who challenged the Mexican legal system for six years until her daughter’s murderer was brought to justice, and paid tribute to a survivor of a brutal attack, who was in the meeting at UN Headquarters, Natalia Ponce de León. She thanked her for her courage, “coming here to be with us to remind us that we will not stay silent until we end violence against women.”


“We need to end impunity for perpetrators and ensure that no woman or girl experiences violence either in the home, from a partner, or in any public space including from gangs, traffickers or others,” said Ms. Mohammed.


Jon Lansman Not for The Many but the Few.

Jon Lansman 3rd Place?


Labour NEC election. Top three positions are as follows:

1st Place, Yasmine Dar            88,176

2nd Place, Claudia Webbe       83,797

3rd Place, Jon Lansman            83,072               It may have something to do with his new found leanings to the right.


Labour NEC election results make a startling revelation, Jon Lansman came in 3rd place. That means he has lost his popularity and position as a leader this vote was before Momentum members found out he back stabbed Jeremy Corbyn. Think its time for Jon Lansman to step down or call out an election. His popularity will have further been reduced after the adoption of IHRA definitions in full.

“@jonlansman on Twitter

Margaret Hodge’s latest OTT intervention makes our task clear: (1) Do what we must to rebuild trust in the Jewish Community & move on (2) Transform the party – democracy, accountability, a mass movement (3) Stop the Tory Brexit ‘plan’, force a general election & transform Britain”


And what about other minorities Jon?     Where is the accountability for them?

For M Hodge’s OTT you would stop and go against the wishes of majority? Because that’s what you did during the NEC meeting. In arguing for the full adaption of IHRA code you failed to address very serious Muslim concerns on IHRA. Momentum members want to know why?  We wish to see the figures for your mandate in this case that  may have compelled you to argue for the case you did.

Any leader carries and argues mandatory, majority and not the few.  But that was Not the Case.


The Batman Goes for Fairness and Justice 4 The Many. Austerity measures are being placed in a style not known by the Elite in Pakistan

PM Imran Khan has begun the first working day hitting the boundaries with austerity measures. He did not mince his words. promised his team heading government will live within means fitting a nation buried in debt.

PM Imran Khan wishes to turn PM house into a University. Decides to live in a three bed room house himself. Intends to keep 2 Bat-mobiles and 2 Butlers.

Former heads of Pakistan had 524 employees working in the premier house, no doubt cooking Aaloo Keema.

Entourage consisting, a total of 80 cars including 33 bullet proof. Most cars will be auctioned off.

Tory government should take some leads from The Batman. Taking from the rich and giving it to the ones that have been robbed by the corrupt.

Strangely the old mafia, they can not let go of corrupt tyrannical mindset. PMLN members criticised his brilliant, genuine and a simply speech connecting with people right across Pakistani nation.
