Under current laws, inheritance tax affects 
640,000 households, but Labour's proposed 
Lifetime Gifts Tax (LGT) would affect up to 10 million homes.

Though the Land Justice Network Facebook page denied it - it was indeed true...

LJN, George Monbiot and the Labour party teamed 
up last year to write a Labour policy to tax 
almost all inherited homes rather than just the most expensive.
The result was a sneaky move in 'Land For The 
Many' which would force millions of children out 
of homes if their parents die 

Labour tax plan ‘could stop parents passing on homes to kids’
If you think inheritance tax is hated now, wait 
until Labour tries to bring in a lifetime gift tax with a £125,000 limit

This is just one contradiction in land campaign 
policy emerging as 'mogadon' Starmer looks set to hand Boris a decade in power.
BTW here's why Corbyn lost and no it wasn't the 
media IMO https://www.rt.com/op-ed/475891-corbyn-general-election-destroyed/

Now some on the 'left' have even turned on 
filmmaker Michael Moore's Planet of the Humans 
for exposing the massive investment nightmare 
taking over renewables, every bit as bad as the fossil fuel lobby
- basically saying the same money is just shifting to greenwash

Apoplexy is the order of the day among ‘green’ 
energy zealots following the release of Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’.
In the military they call it “blue on blue”, 
although when the hard left are pulling the 
trigger it’s more aptly described as “green on green”.
But the documentary backed by Moore isn’t so much 
‘friendly fire’, as an all-out assault on the 
billionaire hypocrites who whipped up fear and 
frenzy over changes in the weather and then, as 
if by magic, produced the notional ‘solution’ to 
the calamity in the form of heavily subsidised 
wind, solar and forest-munching biomass. A 
‘’solution’ which, of course, they are all heavily invested in.

How did Michael Moore become a hero to climate deniers and the far right?

Our founder, George Monbiot has used his Guardian 
column to condemn the film, accusing Michael 
Moore of being in league with the far right, yeah 
right, there has been no actual debate whatever

But possibly the most important discussion is 
about population - as so called environmentalist 
Prince Charles appears to insist that three 
quarters of the world's population drops dead for his convenience

Prince Charles warns that we will need 'four 
planets like earth to survive' as we just 'take 
and take' and urges companies to focus on the 
'green recovery' following coronavirus
The Prince of Wales spoke via recorded message from Balmoral, Aberdeenshire
He stated that at current rate we would need 
'four planets like earth to survive'

Philip at a Nazi funeral and the day his sister 
had lunch with Hitler: TV documentary reopens 
painful chapter of duke's family past

Okay, I'll wind up this, my call to debate, with 
this recent article about food and population on Medium - (below)

If anyone else would like to help organise these 
sorts of socially distanced debate events do please let me know

Environmental Justice or Eugenics? Prince Charles 
Says We Must Reduce World Population By Three Quarters
We produce enough food to feed 10 billion people. 
So why does hunger still exist?
Jeremy Erdman

This is the second article of seventeen exploring 
the challenges of each of the United Nation’s 
Seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.
Today, 795 million people are hungry. Another 2 
billion are expected to join them by 2050.
However, global food production is incredibly 
efficient. The world’s farmers produce enough 
food to feed 1.5x the global population. That’s 
enough to feed 10 billion (we are at 7.6 billion currently).
Despite this excess, hunger still exists.
How is that possible?
Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and 
improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Our inability to feed the entirety of the world’s 
population is mostly due to food waste. Globally, 30–40% of all food is wasted.
In less developed countries, this waste is due to 
lack of infrastructure and knowledge to keep food 
fresh. For example, India loses 30–40% of its 
produce because retail and wholesalers lack cold storage.
In more developed countries, the lower relative 
cost of food reduces the incentive to waste. And 
as portion size grows, more and more food gets thrown out and wasted.
Our food distribution system is inefficient. But 
this inefficiency won’t drive 2 billion more people into hunger by 2050.
Climate change will.
Change in potential average yields for corn, potatoes, rice, and wheat in 2050
Climate change will reshape the world’s 
agricultural landscape. Colder climates will 
become more favorable to agriculture, but many 
current agriculture powerhouses will see significant declines in yield.
The most notably impacted:
The US’s Midwest region will see at least a 20% decline in corn production.
Brazil will see a 16% drop in corn production.
Indonesia will see a 20% drop in corn production
To safeguard against these changes, farmers will 
need to both modernize agricultural methods and diversify their fields.
In terms of outcomes, modernizing methods falls 
into the same bucket as updating food 
infrastructure. Both require investment and 
knowledge to improve yield and food availability.
But diversifying fields? That incorporates more 
crops and methods into agricultural processes. 
And, ultimately, it can reinvent agriculture itself.
Diversifying and Decentralizing Agriculture
Diversifying our crops is paramount to our 
health. According to the UN, 75% of crop 
biodiversity has disappeared since the 1900s. 
Agricultural biodiversity contributes to more 
nutritious diets and builds more resilient and sustainable farming systems.
However, another necessary component to building 
resilient and sustainable farming systems is to 
reduce risk. Climate change-induced impacts will 
rock many agricultural hubs. To minimize these 
impacts on food availability, we need to decentralize its production.
And urban agriculture is a great place to start.
Urban agriculture incorporates producing healthy 
food into an environment long detached from its food production.
Let’s use City Fruit, a nonprofit in Seattle, as an example.
Seattle has an abundance of fruit trees 
throughout its neighborhoods and parks. Every 
year, much of this fruit falls, rots, and wastes. 
City Fruit saw a need and began diverting this 
fruit to communities lacking healthy food access.
In just a few years, City Fruit began harvesting 
over 55,000 pounds of fruit. This amount of fruit 
not just feeds thousands, but nourishes them as 
well. It makes use of local resources, and as a 
result, improves community resiliency.
To end hunger, we need to replicate these types 
of stories across the globe. We need to identify 
communities’ abundant local resources, strengthen 
them, and utilize them to improve food access to those who need it most.
Yes, it will be challenging.
And yes, it will require innovation.
But I’m excited to see what the world creates.

"And I think, in the end, that is the best 
definition of journalism I have heard; to 
challenge authority - all authority - especially 
so when governments and politicians take us to 
war, when they have decided that they will kill and others will die. "
--Robert Fisk

'From South America, where payment must be made 
with subtlety, the Bormann organization has made 
a substantial contribution. It has drawn many of 
the brightest Jewish businessmen into a 
participatory role in the development of many of 
its corporations, and many of these Jews share 
their prosperity most generously with Israel. If 
their proposals are sound, they are even provided 
with a specially dispensed venture capital fund. 
I spoke with one Jewish businessmen in Hartford, 
Connecticut. He had arrived there quite unknown 
several years before our conversation, but with 
Bormann money as his leverage. Today he is more 
than a millionaire, a quiet leader in the 
community with a certain share of his profits 
earmarked as always for his venture capital 
benefactors. This has taken place in many other 
instances across America and demonstrates how 
Bormann’s people operate in the contemporary 
commercial world, in contrast to the fanciful 
nonsense with which Nazis are described in so much “literature.”

So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish 
participation in Bormann companies that when 
Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv 
to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the 
Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. 
Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities 
in no uncertain terms that this must never happen 
again because a repetition would permanently 
rupture relations with the Germans of Latin 
America, as well as with the Bormann 
organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish 
money to Israel. It never happened again, and the 
pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of 
these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an 
Argentinian safe haven, protected by the most 
efficient German infrastructure in history as 
well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.'
