Gosh there is just something so satisfying about watching Imperial Star Destroyers be destroyed. They just look so indestructible, something about the design (I think the stark white paint job has something to do with it) just makes them seem so imposing and completely impervious to damage, like a force of nature. But it’s a lie. They’re just as destroyable as anything else.
of nearly every major British and Northern Irish political party (not including
David Cameron) have signed an appeal to prevent the NHS from being taken over
by US business interests as a result of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment
The appeal, drafted by trade union Unite, says “TTIP must not restrict the
scope for decisions by any level of government, public authority or NHS
organisation relating to public healthcare [and] must not give US investors new
rights that they could use to sue any level of government, public authority or
NHS organisation because of policies relating to healthcare.” This fear has
come about due to TTIP’s proposed creation of a new court, the Investor State
Dispute Settlement (ISDS), which would allow private companies to sue
governments if they thought that a country’s regulatory framework has cost them
Unite’s general secretary Len McCluskey said “David Cameron needs to add action
to warm words. Expert legal advice confirms that there are clear dangers
arising from TTIP that could impact the NHS unless political leaders are ready
to use the veto to deliver a robust carve-out. The NHS unites us all. The
people of this country do not believe it is right for the NHS to be part of
this trade deal.”
The appeal has been signed by Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, the SNP’s Nicola
Sturgeon, UKIP’s Nigel Farage, the Green Party’s Natalie Bennett, Plaid Cymru’s
Leanne Wood, the DUP’s Peter Robinson and Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness.
Nicola Sturgeon has also written to the Prime Minister saying “I urge the
government to ensure that the NHS is fully exempt from TTIP and, if that is not
the case, to use its veto at the European Council to prevent TTIP progressing.”
Lawyer Laurens Ankersmit has said on TTIP “It is a discriminatory legal tool…it
sidelines the EU courts with a quick route to legal damages that could run into
billions of euros.”
TTIP could risk the NHS’s future as much, if not more so, than the Tories’
backdoor privatisation. According to the War on Want, there is little chance of
a deal before the end of Barack Obama’s term so there is still time to organise
and campaign against it and if it does have to happen, to get as many concessions

On how the Chimaera got its lovely emblem.
Thrawn did not put much stock in dreams. They were by-products of neurochemistry, the mind consolidating information gathered throughout the day while one slept. A non-sense experience of the mind which possessed no discernable rhyme or reason. The nights Thrawn remembered his dreams were rare, given he slept little and couldn’t be bothered to recall what might have lingered at the edge of his consciousness upon waking.
But Thrawn had to admit. Sometimes he did remember. And sometimes, of that small pool of dreams, they proved to be quite useful.
