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.

    Great shows Tony ! Great commentary Martin ! I also enjoyed the first hour with Labour councillor Fabian Breckles . He sounds like a real labour guy. NOT a “new labour” Blairite fifth columnist .

    Question : Could Labour form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats and Greens ? Could this negate the power of the Blair “new labour” party members ?

    I would be grateful for answers from anyone . thank you . cheers !

    • Tony Gosling says:

      there’s every chance of that after the next general election, as a result the Tories will be considering their ‘grassy knoll’ options.

    • Martin Summers says:

      If the Labour Party does not win outright at the next general election it will have to form a coalition (probably with the Scottish Nationalists). This may then lead to electoral reform. If the local election results are extrapolated that is what it looks like,

    re Labour coalition possibilities

    Thanks Tony and Martin . If only we had the coalition option in the states….sigh . It seems that it’s impossible for a third, fourth , etc party to gain seats in our congress(something like but not like your House of Commons) , Anyway , there is little difference between the democrats and republicans here now
