This control is now being broken in

“The diverse states that make up the Arab world,
stretching from the Atlantic coast to Iraq, have some
of the world's greatest oil reserves, but this disguises
the fact that they mostly occupy hyper-arid places.
Rivers are few, water demand is increasing as populations
grow, underground reserves are shrinking and nearly
all depend on imported staple foods that are now trading
at record prices.
“For a region that expects populations to double
to more than 600 million within 40 years, and climate
change to raise temperatures, these structural problems
are political dynamite and already destabilising countries,
say the World Bank, the UN and many independent studies.”
“Gaddafi declared Libya a socialist state. He

“Gaddafi supported the Palestinian cause whole-heartedly.
He stood for Arab-unity and was a staunch Arab-nationalist.
He was an enemy of imperialism and supported the national
liberation movements throughout the world. He extended
support to liberation movements in Jordan, in Morrocco,
in Ireland and in Philippines. He was working and championing
the cause of Arab nationalism at a time when Arab states,
one after the other, were surrendering to the U.S.A.
and Israel and were accepting peace dictated by them.
“This pro-left and anti-imperialist posture of
Gaddafi was disliked by western powers in general and
the U.S.A. in particular. He was denounced as a dictator
and during presidency of Ronald Reagan, U.S. airforce
bombarded Tripoli. The target of air attack was Gaddafi
when they wanted to kill. The attack failed to fulfil
its object. In 1988 an air-craft of Pan-America crashed.
The U.S. government declared it an act of sabotage perpetrated
on the behest of Gaddafi. President George Bush declared
Libya a rogue state and after terror attack on the U.S.A.,
Libya was identified as a breeding ground for terror.
“From 1969 to 1990 Gaddafi was a dashing revolutionary
leader of a third world country, who challenged the
might of U.S. imperialism and worked for a better life
to his countrymen. But now all this is past history.
Gaddafi is a changed leader and the change is not for
better but for worse.”
Even a fool like John Prescott knows
a minimum wage destroys the jobs of the weak, but it protects
his union sponsors, of course.
“And yet government regulation forces employers
to pay not less than £4.92 per hour for 18 to
20-year-olds and £5.93 for those 21 and above.
It is plain that many employers think a large proportion
of young people are just not worth that amount of money
too them. Particularly when other employment legislation
adds to their costs even more, and makes it almost impossible
to get rid of workers they find they don't need. No
wonder they aren't hiring.” [Quoted from adamsmith.org]
1994 - before the blessing
of fascist ‘New’ progressive Labour:
“ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for
Employment (Mr. Phillip Oppenheim) : Minimum wages destroy
jobs, particularly among young people. Youth unemployment
is far lower in the United Kingdom than in France or
Spain, which both have statutory national minimum wages
similar to that proposed by the Labour party.

Box. Is he aware that the right hon. Member for Kingston
Upon Hull, East (Mr. Prescott) has observed that any
fool knows that a minimum wage— [HON. MEMBERS:
"Reading."] I am quoting.
“Madam Speaker : Order. We are not making a good
start today. It is not in order for the hon. Gentleman
to quote. I am sure that he can do well without that.
“Mr. Luff : I shall paraphrase, Madam Speaker.
The right hon. Member for Kingston Upon Hull, East has
observed that any fool knows that a minimum wage would
cause a shake-out in jobs. Could my hon. Friend give
an estimate of the size of that shake-out?
“Mr. Oppenheim : There are a number of estimates,
ranging up to 2 million jobs. I shall give my hon. Friend
another interesting quote. John Grant, who was Minister
with responsibility for the low-paid under the last
Labour Government, recently wrote in The Guardian that
it was a "pious hope" to expect better-paid
workers not to want to increase differentials if a statutory
minimum wage were imposed. That increase in differentials
would have an enormous knock-on effect through the rest
of the economy, severely damage our competitiveness
and lead to a massive shake-out in jobs.” [Quoted
