Election Result - Labour Wins South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner / ElectionOracle / UK Local Elections
The mainstream press were once more caught out by an apparently surprise Labour win in the South Yorkshire PCC by-election, as the press had increasingly built themselves up into a fever pitch of expectations for an upset UKIP victory all in the wake of the single issue of the Rotherham child abuse scandal as illustrated earlier by the likes of Channel 4 news -
"A UKIP victory here would be especially embarrassing to Labour as Ed Milliband is a South Yorkshire MP. It would be a sign that Nigel Farage's party poses as much as threat to Labour as it does to the Conservatives and a sign too that in many parts of Northern England just as in Scotland that Labour can no longer depend on its working class base" - Michael Crick, C4News (28th Oct 14)Read full article...

UKIP South Yorkshire PCC Election Win is Just Not Going to Happen / ElectionOracle / UK Local Elections
The by-election for the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner in the wake of the resignation of Shaun Wright is to be held this Thursday, and which has started to galvanise the mainstream press into swallowing UKIP propaganda that they actually stand a chance of winning the by-election all on the basis of one message centred around the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal as illustrated by the poster vans that are doing the rounds in Rotherham area.Read full article...

UK General Election Forecast 2015 - Cameron Tory Tax Cut Fact Check / ElectionOracle / UK General Election
The big election bribe news out of the recent party conferences was David Cameron's promise / voter bribe to substantially raise both the starting and higher rate tax bands that the mainstream media uniformly costed at £7 billion to be added to Britain’s black hole (budget deficit of £95 billion per year).
I can tell you now that a future Conservative Government will raise the tax-free personal allowance from £10,500 to £12,500.
That will take 1 million more of the lowest paid workers out of income tax – and will give a tax cut to 30 million more.Read full article... Read full article...

Bulgaria’s October 5th Elections: A Flashback at the Economic Records / ElectionOracle / Eastern Europe
Bulgarians will go to the polls on October 5th to elect new members of its parliament and thus a new government. Before casting their votes, voters should reflect on the economic records of Bulgaria’s governments since 1995.
Every country aims to lower inflation, unemployment, and lending rates, while increasing gross domestic product (GDP) per capita. Through a simple sum of the former three rates, minus year-on-year per capita GDP growth, I constructed a misery index for each of Bulgaria’s six governments since 1995 (see the accompanying table).Read full article...

Thus far this election cycle has been a dud. Hardly a sweat is broken in the rarified air of partisan politics punditry. The only consistent factor that can always be counted upon to amuse is the reams of paper wasted on the false promises and prevarication made by the esteemed party regulars. It is easy to simply blame the entrenched incumbents or the current crop of insurgents, but it goes much deeper when an entire nation remains mute in the face of the worse run and most condemnable conduct, coming out of the District of Criminals in decades. The party in power traditionally will suffer huge losses in Congress, while the gang of “pols” out of power will start contacting real estate agents within the beltway.Read full article...

Elections in Sweden Could Destroy 20 Years of Economic Progress / ElectionOracle / European Elections
I’m sure you’re familiar with the famous quip, erroneously attributed to Einstein: Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results. Well, this Sunday, Swedish voters have the chance to go insane — or to prove that they learned their lesson the first time around.
Swedes are going to the polls on Sunday to elect a new government. And there is a very real chance — let’s call it what it is: a very real risk — that the country’s former government, the Social Democrats, will reclaim ultimate power in the Nordic nation.Read full article... Read full article...

Channel 4 News Vendetta Against UKIP Backfires, Brit's Don't Like Bully's! / ElectionOracle / Mainstream Media
UKIP politicians and candidates have been literally hounded for over a year. Whilst most viewers enjoy the usually slimy and slippery politicians being held to account by veteran broadcast journalists such as Jeremy Paxman. However where UKIP is concerned, and by Channel 4 News in particular, the mainstream media have gone too far, where tuning into Channel 4 News virtually every other day reveals an usually inexperienced UKIP candidate being goaded into a particular response by a smug faced Michael Crick or Krishnan Guru-Murthy amongst others.Read full article...

The Big Blue Flag
An expert iconographer interviewed on France-Inter which is a state-owned radio and therefore pro-European, May 25, was however allowed to explain why the European Flag has 12 gold stars – but the Union has 28 member states. The official explanation from Brussels that the stars symbolize “12 virtues” such as unity and creativity (and other things the Commission spokesperson likes to think up as their answer, when they're interviewed) was in the iconographer's opinion a cop-out. It was an attempt to prevent people knowing why 12 gold stars were chosen. He said it's a basic Christian symbol, for example the 12 Apostles but obviously the bureaucrats in Brussels don't want to admit it.

Britain's Zombie Marginal Democracy to Deliver Labour General Election 70 Seat Majority? / ElectionOracle / UK General Election
The housing market is booming and the economy within a matter of months will have recouped the whole of the loss of the last Labour governments catastrophic drop in GDP of over 7%, the worst since the 1930's Great Depression. But still there has yet to be any feed back towards an improvement in Tory general election prospects as illustrated by the local election results that show that the Conservatives currently stand in a far worse state than where they were at the start of the Coalition government as the surge in UKIP votes claims seven Tory votes for every one Labour vote taken.Read full article...

Sheffield, Rotherham Local Election Results 2014 - Labour Turkeys Vote for Christmas / ElectionOracle / UK Local Elections
Many people across Britain rebelled against the three party dictatorship that clusters around the centre and panders to some 5% of voters of marginal constituencies as they take their 'heartlands' for granted and never more so than Labour career politicians of Sheffield and Rotherham that expect the voters of the Peoples Republic of South Yorkshire to mark their X zombie style at each election regardless of whatever imbecile that the Labour elite puts up as candidates.Read full article...

The troubled, often bloody and sometimes farcical history of union and disunion in the British Isles has major tipping points. One of the biggest was Scotland's union with England of 1707, described by historians as a surprise transformation from a hostile merger of two parliaments (Scottish and English) driven by politicians and bankers, to an expansionary and colonial economic partnership project which for some while was the most powerful going concern in the world. The previous Union of the Crowns, of 1603, could be called an arms-length deal whereby Ireland played the role of the main colonizing value-added target, but the two crowns of Scotland and England, although they sat on the same head of James I (of England) and VI (of Scotland), stayed separate.Read full article...
