  • POEM: No Chance For Peace by Chris Lane (10/12/2009 8:18:00 AM)

    While they say their prayers from high places out loud.
    Kind regards

  • POEM: Juneteenth - On June Nineteenth by Chris Lane (6/20/2009 9:31:00 AM)

    Just to add to the paradox of the poem, the UK had outlawed the slave trade with the Slave Trade Act in 1807.The Act also included the right of compensation for slave-owners who would be losing their ‘property’. The amount of money spent on the compensation claims was set at 'the Sum of Twenty Millions Pounds Sterling. Under the terms of the Act the British government raised £20 million to pay out in compensation for the loss of the slaves as business assets to the registered owners of the freed slaves.
    Today, the UK members of parliament, have been exposed for claiming £10000000 in taxpayers money for ‘expenses’ such as cleaning, extravagant household goods, meals out etc. Some of those individuals have resigned in shame but others are sticking it out until the next general elections. The government has already agreed that, when they resign at that point, they will receive full pension rights and qualify for payments worth a total of £129,532! ! .
    Bid the citizens therefore be of good cheer.
    Kind regards
