Backwards Together!™©® a new but familiar British political party

After a lifetime of not understanding how ‘centrism’ could possibly be a helpful idea for a healthy, functioning democracy, I’ve finally seen the light. Having heard that there is a serious prospect of one Mr Chuka Ummuna MP forming a new, radically regressive ‘centrist’ political party, undermining the huge gains Corbyn has made for Labour and for the quality of public awareness fills me with delight*.

The fact that it’s apparently called ‘Back Together’ leaves it wide open for this obvious pun, and probably much more hilarity.

So I’ve started designing some concept art for ‘inertia™©®’, an imaginary new centrist activist group, to spread the good word about Backwards Together! and why we should keep things how they’ve been going for the last three decades or so.  If you think I should keep going with this, let me know.

*This entire post is just satire.

If you loved Neo-Liberalism, Thatcherism, Blairism, Centrism and want to keep Britain going the way it had been for the last three decades or so, join us, Backwards Together! to fight against the progressive politics that is threatening to redistribute our wealth and power.

National Funeral for the Unknown Cyclist, London, 13th October 2018

TJFL_GIF

I’m very proud to have collaborated with my mate, Donnachadh McCarthy again, helping to put together the posters, flyers and social media materials for the National Funeral for the Unknown Cyclist, organised by Stop Killing Cyclists and supported by a broad coalition of campaign groups.

The event will honour and mark the deaths of:

  • over a thousand cyclists killed on our roads in the last decade
  • the thousands of cyclists killed by traffic pollution
  • the hundreds of thousands of people who wanted to cycle but were afraid to, due to the lack of protected cycle lanes and who thus died from horrific lung & heart diseases, asthma, diabetes and a plethora of other diseases brought on by the sedentary, petrochemical lifestyle.

National_Funeral_800X800_V3UK Gov. Plc has invested almost nothing on safer cycling but tens of £billions on ever more roads for the car-lobby. £billions more is given in annual tax-cuts to the toxic diesel/petrol lobby, which is accelerating the 6th Mass Extinction.

The excellent photograph in the poster captures the scale of Stop Killing Cyclists’ first mass die-in, at Tfl headquarters, 5 years ago. 1500 people came together to protest, after 6 people were killed while cycling in one month.

This year’s National Funeral for the Unknown Cyclist hopes to be the largest ever Die-In in UK history, to ensure the Chancer of Death, Phillip Hammond, the incumbent PM, Jeremy Corbyn and his incumbent Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell hear two clear demands for the Autumn budget:

£3 Billion per year investment in cycling

A reversal of tax cuts on toxic diesel and petrol

#3Billion4Cycling

Donnachadh explained how they had arrived at the £3 Billion per year figure based on doubling the Dutch model, which invests the equivalent of £30 per person per year on cycling. The UK needs to catch up with 50 years of failure to invest in safer cycling.

The Dutch have the safest cycling infrastructure in the world. Despite some hotspots, they also enjoy some of the cleanest air in Europe.

More Dutch Cycling = Safer Cycling + Less Pollution + Cleaner Air

Dutch-Cyclists-Safest

#Divest

The second demand, a reversal of the year on year tax-cuts on toxic fuel should be a no-brainer, given the calamitous state of our collapsing climate. If we are to survive the 6th Mass Extinction, we must create a cleaner, safer world. Electric vehicles alone aren’t going to cut it, especially if the electricity which powers them is still produced by burning toxic fossil fuels and distributed across an ancient, inefficient power grid. Electric vehicles still have a massive embedded carbon footprint.

The UK, and the world must fully divest from fossil fuels as Ireland has done and properly invest in safe cycling infrastructure.

Righteous Rage to Peaceful Action.

Channel your anger at all these injustices into peaceful direct action and demand better from UK Gov. Plc.

If you’re not able to attend, please share this event with your networks.

Cheers.

The Extinction Symbol represents extinction. It is quite important to raise awareness of the 6th Mass Extinction, particularly as corporate power invests so much pretending that it isn’t really happening…
