Signs of Hope – A continuing series June 30, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.

Any contributions this week?

Particularly hard this week, as you might imagine.

But there seems to be significant push-back from Parliamentarians (EU and national) against Juncker’s assertion that CETA can be decided on as a purely EU treaty at the EU level, and doesn’t have to approved at the national level.

To be fair, Lexiters could, not implausibly, claim that this would not have occurred had (pre) Brexit not occurred.

Significant support among European trades unionists for their sisters and brothers in France.

Does it count as a sign of hope that a couple of TDs were prepared to stand up in the Dail and denounce FEMPI for the disgrace it is? Or is it cause for despair that the government’s power to break, unilaterally, its contract with its own employees is just nodded through by the rest of them?

Not alone has Corbyn started filling in the hole in the ozone layer but he would also win a leadership election according to the latest polls.
