  • Joe Biden nuclear sorcerer’s apprentice, by Manlio Dinucci
    President Biden announced the birth of the AUKUS, a strategic-military partnership between the United States, Great Britain and Australia, with “the imperative of ensuring long-term peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific", the region that in Washington's geopolitics extends from the west coast of the United States to that of India. The purpose of this "strategic mission" is "to take on the threats of the 21st century just as we did in the 20th century: together ". Clear reference to China (...) ... ...
  • Morrison’s Dangerous Fantasies Represent a Danger to Australia’s Future
    Australia has just caused surprise among its friends, concern among its neighbours, and an overtly hostile reaction from the Chinese with its announcement that it was scrapping the submarine deal it had signed with France and replacing it with a scheme, cooked together with British and American allies, to buy 8 nuclear powered submarines. The scheme as announced was extraordinarily short on details. There is apparently at least 18 months of negotiating ahead before the contract is even signed. After that there will be a lengthy delay, estimated being at least 10 years in length, before the first submarine is ... ...
  • No rest for the wicked? Anti-war activists continue to heckle liberal media darling George W. Bush during public appearances
    The 43rd president of the US may now be beloved by the mainstream left, but some anti-war activists, who want to hold him accountable for the invasion of Iraq, continue to target his public appearances. The latest disruption happened when George W. Bush was delivering a speech in Long Beach, California on Monday evening. A small protest by about 30 members of the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) Coalition met him at the location, demanding his arrest for war crimes. The group followed Bush from Beverly Hills, where they picketed his speech on Sunday. Good crowd ... ...

  • Official documents show Australia had warned France for years that submarine deal was in danger
    Documents show Australia issued numerous warnings that its submarine deal with France was at risk, with a 2020 report from Canberra’s Auditor-General flagging concerns that the agreement was not in the national interest. Australian officials have stood by their decision to turn to the new AUKUS deal to build submarines, citing documents going back several years that highlighted Canberra’s concerns about delays, cost overruns and suitability of the vessels made by France. A 2018 independent oversight board, headed up by the former US Secretary of the Navy Donald Winter, suggested Australia seek alternative options to the French naval project and ... ...

  • Labour MPs & allies lash out at Starmer’s reported plans to revive electoral college in party elections, locking out Corbynistas
    UK Labour’s leadership reportedly plans to scrap the current one-member-one-vote system for party elections and bring back the older electoral college vote. Critics called it an anti-democratic “backward step.” Under the current system all Labour members, affiliated supporters and registered supporters, from rank members to members of the shadow cabinet, have exactly the same voting power in party leader elections. The one-member-one-vote (OMOV) system was introduced in 2014 by Ed Miliband, replacing a previous system of electoral college, which represented trade unions, MPs and local Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs). Keir Starmer will reportedly propose a return to the previous system, ... ...
  • ‘It was terrifying’ – Dr Caroline Lee on Covid and mental health of healthcare workers
    Dr Caroline Lee, a Gauteng anaesthetist, joined healthcare journalist Chris Bateman of BizNews to discuss burnout and the mental health issues faced by healthcare workers in South Africa. Dr Lee is the co-founder of the Healthcare Workers Care Network, an eight-year-old burnout and mental distress support group for medical professionals. She says that there was a great need for an organisation like this even before Covid hit, but the pandemic has aggravated the situation immensely because workers are exhausted and constantly exposed to death. “When you’re feeling more tired or it’s just too much – sometimes you see two patients, ... ...

The shocking high-speed smashes happened during the ‘Ekover-2021’ stage held in Asbest – a town named after its asbestos industry in Sverdlovsk Oblast on the eastern slopes of the Ural Mountains. A notoriously unforgiving route saw the demise of at least two vehicles in crashes that caused initial panic among onlookers.

  • The Right to Clean Air in Jakarta
    It seems utterly beyond debate but acknowledging legal rights to clean air has assumed the makings of a slow march over the years.  The 1956 Clean Air Act in Britain arose from the lethal effects of London’s 1952 killer smog, which is said to have taken some 12,000 lives.  The Act granted powers to establish smoke-free zones and subsidise householders to shift to the use of cleaner fuels (gas, electricity, smokeless solid fuel). There is certainly no shortage of advocates for the self-evident point that clean air is vital.  Some of this has been reduced – at least historically – ... ...

    The recent outbreak of the Delta variant in China “shows that its strategy no longer fits. It is time for China to change tack.” So declared a lead essay atop the New York Times Opinion/Editorial section on September  7 by Yanzhong Huang, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. The Delta outbreak that “changed the game” in Huang’s words emerged after an outbreak at Nanjing international airport in July traced to a flight from Russia.  Did this outbreak change anything, in fact?

  • Secrecy around nuclear power in SA needs to be stopped, says OUTA
    Built in the 1970s, Koeberg Power Station is the only nuclear station on the African continent. Situated in the Cape, it has been mired in secrecy for many years. Now, OUTA – the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse – has called out for more transparency at the facility, with the organisation’s Parliamentary and Energy Advisor Liz McDaid stating, “we need a strong governance structure, to keep South Africa safe from nuclear disasters such as Chernobyl and Fukushima.” OUTA notes that state-owned Eskom hasn’t got the money to decommission Koeberg, but is liable for the hefty bill. “There is only R16.2 billion ... ...

  • US, Germany lift travel ban for South Africa – but UK ‘red list’ status remains
    A lot of optimism surrounded the UK’s revision of their travel ban rules. South Africa, which was on the unfortunate ‘red list’, had numerous people and organisations lobbying on the country’s behalf to get it removed. Sadly, that didn’t happen. However, the United States and Germany have lifted their travel bans on South Africa and various other countries. As Bloomberg reporter Josh Wingrove writes, “new rules will replace the current system, which includes outright bans on entry for most foreigners who’ve been in certain regions – including the UK, European Schengen area, China, India, South Africa and Brazil – within ... ...

    Iran’s nuclear chief says the United States should remove all the sanctions it has imposed on the Islamic Republic in order for the stalled negotiations on the revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), to resume. Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Mohammad Eslami told Japanese public broadcaster NHK that the US should remove all its sanctions and quickly come back to the agreement.

  • Post Office workers face losing medical aid cover, SAPO owes insurer R602m
    This year, the South African Postal Office has been fighting to obtain control over the delivery of items weighing less than 1kg. A law essentially enables SAPO to have a monopoly on packages in this category, but private courier companies are fighting back against this claim. While they pursue this line, MyBroadband reports that the state-owned enterprise has internal issues which are affecting employees. SAPO owes Medipos, a medical aid provider, R602m in member contributions. This has now filtered down to 15,000 workers, who are at risk of losing their coverage.

    The bad news is that taxes in America are tilted in favor of the rich. The best news is that we could be only weeks away from a tilt in favor of the middle class: the reforms President Biden is urging to help balance the Administration’s $3.5 trillion budget bill. The changes won’t be going as far as the president first proposed. Congress writes the laws, and House Democrats have already dialed back on Biden’s wish list.  Even so, the bill will almost certainly reflect a sharp shift in America’s priorities.
