Manifesto Review. UKIP, LIBDems, SNP, Labour and Tories.

Below you will find my notes on Lib Dems, Conservatives, The Greens, and UKIP Manifestos.

Many people speak about the budget, the austerity cuts and the NHS, and truly that is what bost people in Britain look for in the manifestos, except when you are a UKIP supporter and the only measure of things is the membership to the EU. However reading the manifestos has actually high merit because one recognizes the general political zeitgeist.

One of the really positive things from most manifestos is the drive towards more equality on gender and sexuality and general tightening of discrimination. Even UKIP cough up references on tolerance.

One point UKIP fails but all other parties more than recognise on is actually another, a comprehensive and deep understanding on climate change. Not one of the four others excludes the topic. Whilst the Conservatives are less specific and comprehensive on on it than the Lib Dems, and the Greens the two most elaborate parties on this, as well as Labour, you have a feeling that they felt they needed to act, both on grounds of negotiated global targets and because of the accusation that their aims as the new green party on the block announced last time around where not acted upon.

Education is another key area beyond the budget and the NHS. All parties seem to believe more child care is better, though there are huge differences in outlook. The Conservatives believe in an increase of free schools and tight testing. Labour on the other hand is against free schools. The ib Dems and the Greens are the only two who would take school curriculum development away from state, whilst the Greens are the only party that talks about school to start only at 7 like around the world, and that there must be a new emphasis on the inter-social.

If you like a breath of fresh air it is well worth saving through the Lib Dem and the Green party manifestos. Labour, whilst more socially attune than the Conservatives are not as radical and several issues as Miliband makes us believe. However the reality of the questionable first past the post system will have it that this will remain a race between Labour and the Conservatives.

Of course at the end it is the deficit and austerity and how much needs to be cut that many people ask. The Conservatives stand alone with a fast repay, followed by the Lib Dems in their thought on necessity. Labour remains rather vague on how much the deficit will go down, whilst the Greens feel it is time to invest as the economy changes and new jobs and relationships will transform society.

The best policy that UKIP offers and biannual people’s referenda on major policy issues, however such votes whilst they increase democracy, will also come with a price tag.

Clacton: Simple People rather than Elite | Ganz gewöhnliche Menschen, statt Elite

Clacton, potentieller parlamentarischer Einmarsch der anti-EU Partei Ukip – Will defector Carswell get Ukip the first parliamentary seat?

ENGLISH
Below is my article about the Tory defector to Ukip Douglas Carswell (published Monday 6/10/14), whom I met personally in Clacton-upon-Sea. My article talks about the city and region and its people, but then focuses on Carswell and his political outlook. Some may prefer many other political solutions to Clacton than Ukip. Strictly speaking, on political thought and his background, I have to say that I’d rather have Carswell than Farage heading a possible Ukip parliamentary group.

GERMAN: Mit Douglas Carswell erscheint ein Politiker an der Ukip Front, der viel näher an der Politik der AFD ist, als Ukip Parteiführer Farrage. Zwar sind er und Ukip mehr skeptisch gegenüber der EU als Afd, aber er versteht die historisch bedingte deutsche Stellung, wie er mir versicherte. Carswell ist im globalen Weltdenken, seinem Parteiführer Farrage um Weites überlegen, denn Carswell wuchs als Sohn zweier Ärzte in Uganda auf.

Daniel Zylbersztajn’s 2013

2013 through the selection of some of my articles:

This year I typed over 40 mostly on the ground researched pieces. Many were transforming and unique written for four media outlets, Taz, Jüdische Allgemeine, Open Democracy and Die Zeit. On three occasions I published only on my blog.

I hope I continue to write challenging and original pieces in the next year. I have some already forthcoming to do with urban culture, domestic violence, sustainability and on Jewish issues. Perhaps I will also write again more in English, as I have done in the past.

To my all my readers, but especially my loyal ones and interviewees, a great thank you. I could not do without you! Special thanks to all the newspapers and editors, you know who are!
