Beginning his working life in the aviation industry and trained by the BBC, Tony Gosling is a British land rights activist, historian & investigative radio journalist. Over the last 20 years he has been exposing the secret power of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and élite Bilderberg Conferences where the dark forces of corporations, media, banks and royalty conspire to accumulate wealth and power through extortion and war. Tony has spent much of his life too advocating solutions which heal the wealth divide, such as free housing for all and a press which reflects the concerns of ordinary people rather than attempting to lead opinion, sensationalise or dumb-down.

    If memory serves, There was talk on your show(a week or couple weeks back) about letting whitehall come in and sort out Bristol’s or any metro area in Britain, and do the the budget cutting and allocationg for Bristol, et al. Is it legal under British or English law to, for lack of a better term, for local elected officials to have a sit down strike not to handle budgets ?

    If the onus was put on Westminster wouldn’t this be a plus for Labour chances of being the next national government in next general elections ?

    I’d really appreciate answers from host Tony, commentator Martin, or anyone else out their in internet and radio “land”

    There are no plans at present for Labour run cities like Bristol refusing to implement cuts and forcing central government to do it’s own dirty work. For better or worse, the pragmatic approach of mitigation is being followed. However, the resignation of Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness in Northern Ireland will lead to a local election and then (because Sinn Fein will refuse to work with the Democratic Unionist Party) to the suspension of the assembly and return to direct rule from London. Thus, the UK Tory goverment will have to carry out their own cuts policy in the Six Counties in the teeth of total opposition from Sinn Fein (and embarrased silence from the DUP – do they like English cuts or not?).
