Bad Eye Day - 14 October! 21 Sep 2015 19:32 #31

Earlier today I met with John McDonnell at the House of Commons, our first meeting since he was appointed shadow chancellor, to discuss arrangements for Bad Eye Day lobby on 14 October.

Thanks to John, the press and media coverage of our campaign should finally meet my long-awaited expectations next month.

Also, John told me that Jeremy Corbyn has said he will endeavour to join us for the lobby!

What more could I ask for...

Oh yes - regulation :kiss:

John McDonnell 16 Sep 2015 11:14 #33

In a Channel 4 News interview on Monday, Jon Snow said to John McDonnell, "For many of the issues you’ve pursued the media have been hardly there, but they’re now very there!



And they will be 'very there' for our Bad Eye Day lobby on 14 October :kiss:

My hero! 13 Sep 2015 23:26 #35

I think it now safe to say that Bad Eye Day lobby (sponsored by John McDonnell) can expect high profile press and media coverage - 14 October @ House of Commons, 4-6pm, Committee Rm 10.

Jeremy Corbyn landslide victory! 12 Sep 2015 16:18 #36

Absolutely fantastic news :kiss:

In case anyone has missed the point: John McDonnell and I have worked closely together since 2012, campaigning for the government to regulate the refractive eye surgery industry.

One of a number I contacted in late 2011, John was the only MP who agreed to support me.

John is sponsor of our forthcoming Bad Eye Day Lobby on 14 October @ House of Commons.

Seb Corbyn (to Jeremy's right in BBC photo) is John McDonnell's Parliamentary Assistant, recently on secondment to his father's campaign team, while John was Jeremy's campaign manager.

Until I launched my campaign I was never interested in politics, while Jeremy's bid to be labour leader has had me on the edge of my seat!

Regardless of your politics, thanks to John McDonnell's association with Jeremy Corbyn, this is guaranteed to increase media interest and highlight the refractive eye surgery scandal.

Trust me, John knows exactly what's going on, and whatever position he is offered on the Shadow Cabinet, his seat on the frontbench can only be a good thing for my campaign, and a very bad thing for the high street providers - and all those who collude with them.

On 20 November 2013 John McDonnell presented a Private Member’s Bill to Parliament calling for government regulation of the industry:

Gordon Brown and David Moulsdale... 16 Aug 2015 10:48 #38

Gordon Brown attended dinner parties with David Moulsdale, so not surprising that he ignored pleas from his constituents damaged by surgery at Optical Express asking for his support!

If for no other reason therefore, don’t expect Gordon to say anything positive about Jeremy Corbyn when he makes his speech at 2pm today at the South Bank Centre in London.
www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/l...corbyn-10456636.html

Not forgetting John McDonnell's strong support for me, and his involvement with My Beautiful Eyes campaign!

"Mr Brown’s intervention comes as it emerged that Mr Corbyn, who has become the surprise front runner in the leadership contest, is poised to name his fellow radical MP, John McDonnell, as shadow chancellor...

[Mr McDonnell] warned that the rich and large corporations should be taxed more, not less, while austerity that hurts the poor must end. “We can tackle the deficit by halting the tax cuts to the very rich and to corporations, by making sure they pay their taxes...
”"
www.telegraph.co.uk/…/Gordon-Brown-warns-Labour-over…

"ONE of Scotland’s most successful businessmen yesterday failed in an attempt to prevent a private investigator from making allegations about his business dealings and his friendship with a notorious drugs dealer.

David Moulsdale, the founder of the Optical Express chain of opticians, claimed Dr Allan George had made defamatory remarks about him to others working in the opticians trade.

But yesterday, he failed to persuade the Court of Session in Edinburgh to grant him an interim interdict against Dr George.

With a fortune estimated at 100 million, Mr Moulsdale is one of the richest and most powerful businessmen in Scotland. He was the youngest ever winner of the Scottish Business Achievement Award in 1998 and the following year he topped a poll of the country’s most eligible bachelors.

He is also highly regarded in government circles and his entrepreneurial skills have earned the praise of Gordon Brown, the Chancellor.

But yesterday, the court heard how he had been the subject of extensive media reports in recent years which had referred to an alleged friendship with a "notorious drugs baron" and had claimed he was "no stranger to financial bother".

The drugs baron was Tony McGovern, 35, a Glasgow gangster who ran the drugs trade in the Maryhill and Springburn areas of the city. His friendship with Mr Moulsdale, the son of a Leith taxi driver, emerged after McGovern was shot and killed in September 2000.

The "financial bother" mentioned in court referred to his company’s failure to settle some of its debts on time. Mr Moulsdale, who lives in Dullater, near Cumbernauld, had been accused of building up his fortune at the expense of companies which were kept waiting for payment and Optical Express was the subject of a number of adverse court judgments.

Corbyn will crack down on corporate tax dodgers! 11 Aug 2015 19:40 #40

I'm guessing 'corporate tax dodging' would include companies who put stores into administration, leave damaged patients without recourse to aftercare, write off millions in debt, yet continue to trade and open in new locations!
www.rt.com/uk/311453-corbyn-austerity-tax-avoidance

"Labour's biggest donors pledge to stop giving cash if 'economically illiterate' Jeremy Corbyn wins race"
www.telegraph.co.uk/…/Labours-biggest-donors-pledge-…

Wealthy businessmen threatening to withhold donations if things don't go their way? This explains why the Conservative government turn a blind eye [sic] to the scandal of the unregulated refractive eye surgery industry!

I'll say it again, no matter what your politics, if you support My Beautiful Eyes campaign then please register to vote for Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader now!

Deadline for registration is 12 noon on 12 August :kiss:
