In a response to Richard Murphy's blog posted over the weekend, I think this is very insightful as to why the Tories are being so #cruel over #welfare #benefits and #CostOfLivingCrisis Support (a 🧵)... /1
/2 There is a new comment on The #Tories are now the most #rightwing governing party in the developed world:
"It could be worse than that. Maybe the rather tepid move to Labour in the polls is because of something darker.

Conservative MPs urge Liz Truss’s removal from No 10 after poll reveals British public’s fury over tax plans

/2 The survey by Opinium – which also reveals that Labour has extended its lead by a massive 14 percentage points in the last week alone, from 5 points to 19 points, and that Truss’s ratings are now lower than Boris Johnson’s at the height of the #PartyGate scandal
/3 Concerns were also voiced by Tories on Saturday after Simon Clarke, a key Truss ally and the levelling up secretary, signalled that #welfare would be cut as part of plans to bring public spending back under control.

Left Foot Forward:
Lurching the UK towards 'Reaganomics'

A ‘foot soldier’ for US economic fundamentalists, #Truss and her cabinet appear to be applying policy from an American right-wing playbook and lurching the country towards ‘#Reaganomics.’ /1
#RightWingWrong
/2 For the most part, since 1980, #Republican economic policy has revolved around a single policy - hefty tax cuts heavily tilted towards the rich with enormous budgetary deficits as a consequence. Under the Reagan Presidency (1980-1988), income tax was cut across the board
/3 and the top rate of income tax reduced from 70% to 28%. Both Reagan and Bush ran up enormous deficits via huge tax cuts. When Clinton came to power in 1993, he had an awful mess to clean up.

Apart from leading to higher income inequality and punishing the poor –

Our paper is out!
Current #adaptation projects do not automatically enhance #gender equality | need to be intentionally brought in at planning & implementation stages.

Delighted to have brainstormed👇figure with @Joyashree9
Embedding gender considerations and facilitating #women’s participation in project design and implementation along with #inclusive #policies, training, information access, planning, and monitoring is needed
Additional course correction for #SDG5 is needed.
Our #SDG5plus (SDG5+) approach takes into consideration #intersectionality and gender aspects beyond #women alone, & can help #adaptation actions move towards meeting #genderequality and other #climatejustice goals.

Discussing #Welfare today with a group.
Here are some basic facts:
In June 2020, TANF provided income to more than 2.1 million.

Most Temporary Assistance for Needy Families recipients are children. The June 2020 figures include 505,487 adults and over 1.6 million children.
In 2019, for instance, only 23% of the families with children living in poverty received TANF assistance, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

In 2020, the national median monthly assistance for a family of three with TANF benefits was $492 per month

What does it mean to fight in a city that the #Russians 🇷🇺 consider strategic?

"It's okay. I'll get over it," says one of the wounded soldiers. ⤵️
#Poland says they are ready to transfer their fleet of #fighterjets 🛩️ to a #US airbase in #Germany.

But, providing #Ukraine 🇺🇦 with war planes poses serious risks and #NATO does not want direct conflict with #Moscow 🇷🇺 ⤵️

This is hard to write but it is true for many. What I’m about to say is a harsh reality of what people go through.

What I am about to say is also the reason why a lot of people don’t ask for help.

People do not ask for help because of the fears and stigmas that exist.

Here Is Something to think about,

What if you were a #singleparent with a #child

You work full time for $15.00/hr

You take home roughly $960.00 per paycheck (bi-weekly after taxes)

#singleparent #parenting #Blessed #grateful #calgary #calgarylife #alberta #yyc

@EveryAlbertan
Your bills per month:

$1,000 or more for rent
$150 or more for cable/internet
$250 or more for utilities
$150 per month for car insurance

So let’s do the math

You bring home about
$1,920.00 a month

Your bills average about $1,500(give or take)

Considerazioni geopolitiche
Gli #StatiUniti ripiegati su se stessi.
Da anni insofferenti al loro ruolo di "poliziotti del mondo", chiudono un'era nel peggiore dei modi, con una disfatta che ora brucia agli Americani stessi (e a noi).

#Americaisback di #Biden più che ⤵️
Un ritorno sulla scena sembra ora un ritorno a un passato isolazionista.
Da #Americafirst ad #Americaalone

Abbiamo contestato il suo #imperialismo armato, la sua grossolana presenza negli #scenari globali, una certa ignoranza e prepotenza diplomatica, il modo semplicistico ⤵️
di dividere il mondo in buoni e cattivi, con loro nella parte dei buoni ovviamente.

Ma siamo tutti intrisi di cultura americana, dal jazz al rock alle sneakers, dalla Coca ai jeans, da Warhol alla letteratura, da un certo edonismo consumistico che abbiamo assorbito.

In exactly one month, I'll be leaving Bertelsmann Stiftung and start a new challenge. But before I leave, I would like to (re-)share some of the highlights of my work over the last five years. So join me for a little time travel and lots of still relevant research!
When I joined @GED_Tweet in 2016, the #trade world seemed still ok: the WTO still had the Appellate Body, TTIP was a political priority, Brexit had not happened and Trump was still an unlikely presidential candidate. Lots was going to change...
One of my core projects was research on public opinion and #trade. Our first publication was triggered by the intensifying debate on TTIP in Germany - but went beyond that: bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/publication…

There’s so much happening in 🌍 right now - including many tragedies - but farmers are asking you to lend your support to the campaign to protect 🇬🇧 food standards from being undercut in future trade deals.

Here’s why this is important & why you should care [1] Image
British #farmers produce your food to some of the highest standards of animal #welfare, environmental #sustainability & #safety in the 🌍

Many of these are 🇪🇺 standards. With #Brexit we are now free to alter them. But what does this mean? [2]
So domestic production standards are set to rise even higher, which is great (who doesn’t want quality?)

But govt looks set to conclude new trade deals with countries such as 🇺🇸 which would allow food imports which it would be illegal to produce here [3]

With only a few days to go before the most comprehensive #lockdown announced by GoI comes to an end, participated in a VC with Hon PM to discuss the exit strategy to deal with fallout from #COVIDー19 Crisis & ways to kick start the #economy. Made the following suggestions.(1/n)
1. TESTING: Use Rapid test kits to segregate the people into red, yellow & green zones. Empowering employers to test their workforce, will reduce the burden on Govt and create green zones of productivity and help get economy back on track. (2/n)
2. #supplychain: They are extremely important to get the economy moving even in a partial manner. Allowing trucks to #transport goods and other #materials is vital for the #economy. The Govt might also consider ensuring Road side facilities for the drivers' #welfare. (3/n)

FARMERS 👩‍🌾

We’ve a lot to be #proud of in 🇬🇧 - but we can #aspire to #better.

More productive. More tech-savvy. More collaborative. More environmentally proactive.

Change is coming. We have to embrace it & lead the #change. Consumers respect us - that’s a big asset ✅

[2/9] Image
FARMERS, II 👩‍🌾

With #NetZero we have to step up. It will be difficult; hard decisions will have to be made. But we must show #leadership.

We can’t complain about the consequences of #ClimateChange if we don’t play our part.

And only Ag can act as a carbon sink 💨 🌱

The National Commission for Enterprises in the #UnorganisedSector was set up in 2004 as an advisory body & a watchdog for the #informal sector. This NCEUS report reviews #labour #laws & #SocialSecurity systems that apply to #workers in unorganised sectors. bit.ly/2PhAOEN ImageImageImageImage
It observes that while existing laws have some provisions for conditions of #work for certain workers, there is no comprehensive legal framework for the “basic and minimum conditions of work” for unorganised sector workers.
Therefore, it proposes comprehensive & protective laws for agricultural & non-agricultural workers in the unorganised sector that will regulate conditions of #work, #SocialSecurity, #welfare and #livehood promotion.

1/ To the Republicans in my network, respectfully...

The 400 wealthiest Americans paid lower tax rates in 2018 than any other income group for the first time in history.

The average pay increase for the rest of us was about 3%.
2/ Are you one of those 400? Has that wealth trickled down? Were you able to utilize the private jet deduction? Are your tax cuts permanent?
3/ Or are you in the pile with the rest of us, celebrating a $30 per week raise while factories close down and workers strike and farms go bankrupt and consumer prices go up...
