I decided on the 10th of September, twelve days before my 47th Birthday, that I’d like to be an MP.
The thing is, I’m a punk, I’m neither a Labour man nor a Conservative. And the Liberal Democrats have been shown to be a traitor to there own policies; so they are out. I don’t have faith in the fringe parties – neither Greens nor UKIP. And the fanatics don’t interest me in the slightest (BNP, SNP, etc).
Reblogged from i-politics & i-thorts:
Once they get to grips with it not being about mico-party-political broadcasts, then they might get somewhere. But with only a handful of MPs sharing the nouce or having the gumption to use social media properly, it makes the Social Media political party very threatening to the big three.
A new British political party launched yesterday: The Social Media Party. “A cross-party party” designed to appeal to members from the full political spectrum.

We believe in a state that allows individuals to take part in the decision-making process that affects their lives, to contribute fully to that society (and their own communities) to attain these ideals. United by a common belief in respect, equality, education, and social justice.

I’m told that the struggle on the streets is real!
It’s a gang term that’s crossed over to mainstream media.
When you want to tweet how hard life is being or your trying to be sarcastic the Trend is to add “#TheStruggleIsReal”
Throughout this article the word ‘pussy’ will be used frequently. (This is not for effect it is solely because the focus of this article is the group Pussy Riot.) If this offends please leave now.
Pussy Riot have become the face of modern feminism in Russia today.
.: Feminist collective &
Punk-Rock band Pussy Riot :.
But who are Pussy Riot?
No one knows. They are a collective of middle-class young women. They are ‘kind’ revolutionaries. They are a phenomena. They are few, but they are many.
In a country that feminism seemed to miss, the not so quiet women’s revolution rages on. Western women can say or sing whatever they please without having to hide behind nicknames and masks, but in Russia feminism has to shield her face from the government.
