In this edition, Mike Swadling shines a light onto industrial action and strikes on the railways and in schools, plus the right of individuals to unionise and protest, looking at how the development of guilds in Ancient Greece and Rome and Combination Acts of the Industrial Revolution led to modern unionism and working practices, and how collective bargaining for pay increases against the background of misinformation may harm union members when agency staff are used in lieu with reduced employment rights and securities. Christopher Wilkinson looks at the prospects of Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss – one of whom will lead an ageing Conservative government, discussing the potential for political apathy triggered by scandals, inflation, and strikes and their historical parallels, examining how the victory conditions for the next general election are closer than current opinion suggests between Labour and the Conservatives, and how prospects of capitalise on change is failing to translate into success for libertarian alternatives. Mike Swadling also argues the case for a national day for Britain to celebrate British values and togetherness.
The Free Speech bulletin is a weekly electronic publication of political, social, economic and cultural thought from Britain’s pioneering free thinkers. With a focus on politics beyond the propaganda, Free Speech aims to give a voice to smaller pro-liberty political parties, organisations and individuals whose ideas and perspectives have been silenced by the mainstream. Packed with concise yet informative articles, Free Speech intends to challenge corporate media by presenting accurate and truthful accounts of current affairs that empower individuals to value liberty.
