Anger at MPs' demand for secrecy if they're arrested: Review says naming members could breach their right to privacy under human rights laws

MPs will decide this week whether to grant themselves anonymity if they are arrested.

Making their names public could breach their right to privacy under the European Convention on Human Rights, they say.

Under the current rules, the House of Commons must be notified any time a member is arrested by police. The details are then printed in the official parliamentary record so the public can know about any criminal proceedings involving elected members.

But a review by the powerful Procedure Committee, which oversees the rules governing the Commons, has called for MPs’ names to be kept secret to protect their ‘right to privacy’ under the European Convention.

The recommendation has been endorsed by ministers and has been scheduled for debate on Wednesday but could be nodded through without a vote.

I have shown from official data that a smart single-payer system would save so much money it would be the equivalent of eliminating the income tax for 99% of Americans.

The zeal of Bernie Sanders supporters is a mystery to many people, especially those who cringe at the word "socialist."

How, can a geriatric Brooklyn-born Jew who speaks in long, complex sentences, his hands providing the punctuation, draw bigger crowds than Donald Trump, despite claiming a tiny fraction of the mogul's TV news coverage? How could he battle Hillary Clinton to a virtual tie in Iowa, with a good chance of beating her Tuesday in New Hampshire? How could he be closing the gap with her in national polls?

TPP Deal Just Signed: Paves Way for Authoritarian Technocracy

Beware TPP. It's nothing more than the further formalization of the worst part of the 20th century: The warfare/welfare state.

It's just been signed in New Zealand by the 12 negotiating parties and now US President Barack Obama is pressuring Congress to get it passed quickly. Obama wants it passed so that the US will be able to "write the rules of the road in the 21st century," enabling it to shape global trade to its own advantage.

Obama is nothing but a puppet for Western banking interests that want to disguise and expand their growing global control via TPP. It will be a disaster that places multinational corporations on an equal footing with nation-states.

TPP is an authoritarian exercise that further solidifies various kinds of global "bigness" while squeezing out the average citizen.
