Chris Knight Arrested – Rabbit Still at Large!

Anarchist Snub To Wills and Kate!

Palaces insiders have been left fuming after the humiliating news was revealed that most anarchists intend to ignore the Royal Wedding celebrations on Friday and probably go down the pub instead.

Whilst thousands of police officers have been drafted into the capital it appears that any chance of a major demonstration against the wedding looks remote.  This is believed to be due to no-one really giving that much of a shit about the affairs of inbred chinless wankers.  Plus it’s probably going to piss down.

Commander Bob Broadhurst is said to be devastated at the snub.  According to Scotland Yard sources all usual procedures were followed, including a plea for anarchists to attend published in both the Evening Standard and Daily Telegraph and even an offer to haul them out of their beds to make sure they didn’t miss the big day.  “What a waste of fucking money” say police sources.

The lack of anarchist participation is believed to be a sign of increasing indifference to the Royal Family.  One palace insider told us “It’s a pretty poor show when not even anarchists can be bothered to protest at a Royal Wedding.  Fucking Vodafone gets more attention than we do these days.”

It’s now down to just famous anarchist liability Chris Knight and his cardboard guillotine, EDL’s Chipping Norton division and pair of pretend jihadists to provide entertainment for the hundreds of bored coppers  who plan to turn up on the day.  Donut shops are readying themselves for record sales.

Anarchists are not the only ones to deliver a snub to the Palace.  The Butcher of Bahrain, Darth Vadar and even Margaret Thatcher have all declined their invitations.  In Thatcher’s case this is believed to be because the senile old hag could croak anytime.  Some have suggested that only the death of Thatcher is likely to bring anarchists out onto the street this weekend.  That, after all, would be something worth celebrating.  A plan by the Palace to off the old trout has so far been resisted until George Osborne has been surgically removed from her arse.

Anyone wishing to ignore the whole pointless charade and get pissed instead could do worse than visit the monarchy-free street party to be held in Deptford on Friday.

National Week of Action Against Atos Origin Begins Monday 9th May

Disability activists, claimant groups and anti-cuts campaigners have called a week of action against poverty pimps Atos Origin beginning on Monday 9th May with a picnic and party in Triton Square, home of their head office, at 2pm: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=194299250612882&

Triton Square is on the North side of Euston Road, just over the road from Warren Street tube and less than five minutes from Euston/Euston Square or Great Portland Street tube stations.

Atos Origin have just begun a £300 million contract by the Con-dem Government to carry out ‘work capability assessments’ on all of those claiming Incapacity Benefit.

It is claimed assessments are to test what people can do rather than what they can’t. The real purpose is to strip benefits from as many people as possible.

This testing system has already led to people with terminal illnesses and severe medical conditions being declared fit for work and having benefits cut. GP’s are ignored in favour of decisions made by Atos Origin’s computer.

Plans announced for the scrapping of Disability Living Allowance have also revealed that this intrusive testing is likely to be extended to everyone on some form of disability or health related benefit.

To date around 40% of appeals against Atos Origin’s decisions have been successful.

On the 24th January claimants from around the country demonstrated outside Atos Origins premises, with many choosing to close for the day rather than face their ‘clients’. We call on all groups around the UK to take action against these parasites who have been dubbed ‘the racial purity and euthanasia arm of the DWP’

Atos testing centres are listed at: http://www.atoshealthcarejobs.co.uk/locations.html

National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts – Day 3

The 3rd National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts has been called for April 14th 2011.

Millions are set to be affected by savage cuts to housing, disability, sickness and welfare benefits. People with disabilities, illness, the unemployed, single parents, carers the low waged, part time students, volunteers, homeless people and college students are all likely to see a devastating drop in disposable income with many slipping even further below the poverty line.

The poorest and most vulnerable are being asked to pay for the mistakes and extravagances of the richest. Meanwhile poverty pimps like Atos Origin and A4e are set to rake in hundreds of millions on government contracts to bully and intimidate people from claiming the pittance handed out in benefit payments. Many disabled people have threatened suicide if these cuts are allowed to continue. Some have tragically already carried out that threat.

The first two days of protest against benefit cuts have seen demonstrations, meetings, unemployed discos, public pantomimes and occupations in cities across the UK. Atos Origin have been forced to close offices, protesters have gathered inside and outside workfare sharks A4e and demonstrations have taken place from Downing Street to local town centres such as Lydney and Crawley.

We are fighting for our homes, our livelihoods, our very survival. It’s time to show these public school parasites and their poverty pimp collaborators we mean business.

National Campaign To Make Nick Clegg Cry

“Papa, why does everyone in the country think you’re a cunt?”

Perhaps it’s because you’ve sold out a generation ensuring that only snivelling little wretches like your own children, who don’t like you, will have a chance of an education.  Perhaps it’s because you’ve sold out your party and every Lib Dem activist in the country wants to kick you in the face for destroying their political careers.  Perhaps it’s because the public rightly see you as a pathetic bitchboy apologist for Cameron and Osborne.  Perhaps it’s because you’re a bad father and lie to your family.  Perhaps it’s because you blew the one chance you had of introducing a genuine PR electoral system.  Perhaps it’s because your name will forever be synonymous with toadying up to the rich, selling out principles for a plush job and then crying to the media about how horrible people are being to you.

Perhaps it’s because you can no longer walk the streets of your constituency without being subject to righteous abuse.  Perhaps it’s because we all know now that without your dad you’d just be another chinless non-entity.  Perhaps it’s because of the very real suffering your spineless coalition is inflicting on the country.  Perhaps it’s because you’re a joke, a spineless sub-human piece of fetid scum who’s only contribution to modern politics has been to show what a vapid shambles of power grabbing morons the soon to be over liberal democrat party was.

There are many reasons to think Nick Clegg is a cunt.  Why not tell him and his party all about it on National Troll a Tory Day on 14th April.  Be unkind.  Be unfair.  Be fucking brutal. Let’s make Nick Clegg cry like a baby, tonight, tomorrow night and every night until his pathetic career comes to a well deserved end.

Then someone can take him out the back and shoot him.

Posh Wet Tories to Hold Posh Wet Rally Against Debt

A bunch of thick tories, right wing libertarian types and hand wringing Ukippers are planning to hold a Rally Against Debt in central London on Saturday 14th May.

According to their crap blog this will be: “A well mannered, polite rally for civilised people who don’t wish to see their hard earned money being spent on pointless government initiatives.”

Already they are very cross that the event is being hijacked by subversive forces.  Some on twitter have decided that the Rally Against Debt should be extended to student debt and household debt, set to rocket due to the spending cuts.  The original twitter feed – @ukdebtrally has been usurped by @UKAgainstDebt, or is that the other way round.

Ever the opportunist, reformist traitor  Sunny Hundal is confused again.  Elsewhere a Rally Against the Rally Against Debt has already been announced.  The original Rally Against Debt say they are talking to the Met about a route.  Presumably these so called libertarians are depending on the filth to protect them.  Hating the state only goes so far.  How motivated the filth will actually be to facilitate a demo calling for more of them to be sacked remains to be seen.

Here’s hoping for a scrap – black bloc vs posh twats – at least 10 and possibly 20 wet right wingers might turn up for this event.  This could be the biggest gathering of the libertarian right in years.  We should not be complacent.  No doubt the feared Tax Payers Alliance direct action group will be making an appearance …
