The show for the over 60s
Vivacity, the show that loves good living, is a weekly magazine-style programme that focuses on alternative health, lifestyles and eco and ethical living issues here in the South West. These are the things that I’m passionate about and I enjoy spreading the news about all the fabulous people and projects we have here.
BCfm’s weekly politics show presented by Tony Gosling

First hour: Weekly news review with Southmead Councillor Jenny Smith (Lab). The Jack Lopresti report: The Bristol Freemasons’ Provincial Yearbook Jack promised us 4 weeks ago has still not arrived. Bristol Freemasons’ Hall Summer Craft Fayre and open day takes place on Saturday 16th June. Jenny Smith has Labour’s opposition Health and Social Care portfolio for Bristol. Possible closure of Bristol City Council’s Elderly Peoples’ Homes. Is privatised ‘Homecare’ a suitable alternative to care homes for elderly people? Day centres are also under threat: for elderly; the disabled and mentally ill. Fascist Bristol? Some worrying facts are emerging about anti-democratic powers of Bristol’s new mayor who can pass the budget on a vote of only 1/3 of the councillors and choose cabinet members from their own party even if it is a minority party. This is not democracy and far less representative than the London mayor. Member of the former Slave Trade financiers, The Society of Merchant Venturers, George Ferguson, used to be a Liberal Democrat Councillor so how can he be an Independent mayoral candidate? On Britain’s fraught economy isn’t it better to default on unpayable debts or else to nationalise the banking system rather than dither? But these solutions seem to be taboo in the mainstream media. Government guaranteeing a certain amount of money for each individual bank account but rich people will lose everything over that amount. Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) and other public sector unions on strike over pensions yesteday as a new public sector tax appears on their payslips as a deduction from their wages for the Treasury. We hear from Roger Thomas from PCS. Some public sector unions have withdrawn support from the Labour party but leader Ed Miliband is still trying to please a few ‘swing voters’, just like the two other main parties. People are coming to Bristol who cannot afford to live in London. Some individuals, particularly youngsters are becoming ‘Non-People’ due to being excluded from housing. Michael Meacher MP’s blog post points out that the 1000 richest in Sunday Times UK Rich List have increased their wealth by £155bn over the last 3 years. They could pay off the entire UK deficit tomorrow with £30bn to spare. Many at the poorest end of society in Southmead are feeling they can’t cope and small local shops are also being forced to close. First Bus withdrawing local bus services doesn’t help. In this year’s Westminster budget Tory Chancellor of the Exchequer and Bullingdon Club ‘Oik’ George Osborne gave Britain’s 40,000 millionaires £14,000 per week, that’s £3bn in tax dished out for lowering the top rate of tax from 50p to 45p. Bristol’s 8.4% council house rent increase is way over inflation and impossible for many to pay. Simon from Somerset calls in to BBC Radio 5 live on Monday morning and explains some home truths about the financial situation, saying the government doesn’t really govern the country, it is governed by the City Of London and private bankers instead who decide what the government can and cannot afford. Government and people who are in debt are their slaves. Private bankers govern the world and the thing they are most afraid of is that our elected representatives should print their own money, they want to keep their private oligopoly on money. The US Greenback dollar notes under president Abraham Lincoln was government issued money and Lincoln won the American Civil war on the back of it. We in Britain could do the same today. What’s the point in voting if the private banks are pulling the strings? Information tribunal tells government to publish the NHS Risk Register but Health Secretary Andrew Lansley and the Cabinet veto the decision and refuse to publish it. Andy Coulson former editor & criminal phone hacking mastermind at the News of the World appears at the Leveson enquiry. After losing his job at the News of the World over phone hacking he became Director of Communications for Prime Minister David Cameron at No. 10 Downing Street. But Cameron did not ask him anything about why he left the News of the World if you can believe that! Coulson was SSC vetted by a private company not DV vetted as required, but nevertheless he had access to Top Secret files which is a serious breach of national security before he resigned in January 2011. Europe Day on Wednesday: UKIP leader Nigel Farrage predicts civil unrest and possibly even revolution in Europe and a rejection of the centralised EU by the European people, he owes no allegiance to the EU flag. New survey indicates 71% of UK public believe it’s time to renationalise the water industry and we on the programme agree that it’s a good place to start.
Second hour: Latest book on the death of Princess Diana “Diana Inquest: Who Killed Princess Diana? by John Morgan” explains something called the Way Ahead Group (WAG) which met on on Wednesday 23rd July 1997 chaired by The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, may have ordered the assassination of Diana because William and Harry were about to go on an extended Holiday with Muslim Dodi Al Fayed. US Army running ‘Islam is the Enemy’ ‘Holy War’ course for their senior officers which includes nuclear attacks on Mecca and other Islamic holy cities. Enhanced Underpants bomb reappears with further entrapment of patsies by the FBI. But lawyer Kurt Haskell saw original underpants ‘bomber’ being ushered onto the plane without a passport. The real terrorists are inside the power structure. Russian armed forces are preparing for a potential world war, including PsyOps, this Summer. Alison Caldwell from Australian broadcaster ABC interviews David Nevin, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s lawyer, who says he cannot have a conversation with his client. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed allegedly ‘confessed’ to carrying out the 9/11 attacks after being waterboarded 183 times. Two massive bombs target Syrian government security police targets but were they planted by private military companies such as Blackwater, now renamed as “XE Services”. The Bilderberg Must Die For The World To Live, NATO zone royalty, bankers, media, biggest corporations and government finance people’s secret meeting takes place in three weeks in Virginia, USA next door to the National Reconnaisance Office (NRA) and down the road from the CIA. Occupy Bilderberg protest movement has already begun. Former US Secretary of State under Republican President Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger has a track record as one of the world’s worst ever war criminals and he is a key organiser of the Bilderberg Conferences.
