Here are this weeks top five political stories summarised and personalised:
5. Miliband struck back at payday loaners such as Wonga, promising to ban their adverts on children channels. Miliband believes the importance of removing payday lenders is critical as they ‘ruin families’. Pretentious policies only get you so far Mr Miliband, people want more than throw-away short-term policies.
4. The Paxton & Russell Brand row rumbles on, after Paxton critically condemned Brand for not voting, and urging voters not to vote also. I particularly find this quite amusing as with the last elections some three years back Paxton himself abstained from the ballot, how interesting.
3. Geneva saw the worlds superpowers coming an inch away from binding an agreement between US and European powers such as UK, France and Germany with Iran on their nuclear programme. However, France (yes, France) declared the deal wasn’t meeting enough standards and wanted ‘tougher terms’ for Iran. Officials will now begin talks to string together an agreement in the coming weeks/months. Many delegates speculate an agreement will come up by the new year adding there was ‘good progress’.
2. A media blackout came to befall the UK with virtually no newspapers or media outlets giving a serious piece on the protests on the fifth of november. Thousands marched on to Buckingham Palace accompanied by unions fashioning the infamous Guido Fawkes worn by activist group Anonymous. Petty tedious pieces were however written by BBC; bare-facing lying claiming there to be ‘hundreds’ whilst in actual fact the number was in the thousands many claimed there to be ten thousand.
1. The Guardian’s very own Alan Rusbridger is to be brought forth to a Home Affairs select committee ram packed with political cretins defending the governments rights to spy on their people. The call came from Cameron’s PMQs saying the Guardian’s involvement in publishing the whistleblower Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks which found that American and UK government spying on civilians as well as political leaders of Brazil, France and even Angela Merkel, yikes. The Guardian says it published leaks to enforce a debate that should be brought to the media arena.
