    ILF the key emotive is a public life, which sums it all up neatly for me…to be enabled, out and about, living large, in plain view, in yer face, with vitality…not shunted off to a railway siding, detention center, out of sight out of mind, digitally remastered by machine management schemes…”where have all the flowers gone” locked up for their own good….the shopping mall/center is a much pleasanter experience, without all those sick and disabled things, cluttering up the boulevards…meals and beverages served, not when i want but when they get round to it…sounds like factory/industrial behaviorist management/shawshank/hell/battery farm, to me…

    • “”where have all the flowers gone” locked up for their own good…”

      That sums up the UK.

        yes indeed, what with the above and what’s happening to uk state pensions…re retirement @ 66/WP/disability denial et al people should be very concerned/alarmed, not frozen into not speaking out when/while they/we still can and other general inaction’s…throwing frozen childhood tantrums @ abuse/abusers solves nothing, the attachment still remains….being adult is being upset and angrily rejecting abuse/abusers, and detaching from the abusers company…except our attachment to abuse/abusers is forced, such is the corral/kettle built around getting our vitals of life, constructed…so we must fight administratively (and/or collectively, as in protest marches etc)…ie with the pen, words and ensure all their diktats are in writing and we sign nor say anything that dumps their will/desires/wants, as if by implication we are a/the burden, back onto us…makes it our fault or blames us for our situation…volunteering is not always a good thing….our voice(s) must be heard….

        • obd, all true.
          Once you have seen it, learned about it, accepted it, you see it everywhere, you just can’t un-see (I’m the greenhorn with this) The seeing and accepting of it, is both difficult and painful, but oh the relief!

          Stopping that cycle of gravitating to abuse and abusers is the action that no one wants us to take. Tough. We do it. We have to and to do it, we have to engage with the abusive Social Security system, an ironic cruelty if ever there was one.

          The traumatised are on both sides of the desk, just as frozen and trapped, but so much more dangerous, because they have free rein to sanction, section, arrest, attack, undermine. We have to stand up to them, do the adult thing, endlessly repeating the words, politely, without venom or anger, plodding on, never getting immune to the set backs because we need that flash of anger to keep us going. If we make a mistake, we’ve had it. If they make one, that’s another opportunity for them to try and destroy us when we point it out to them. This 8th circle of hell is endless.

          The ILF must stay, it’s helped so many people carry on just living their lives the way they choose. To arbitrarily devastate yet another group of people is ridiculous and barbaric. This is why the sadistic goons in power want it gone, nothing about money, everything about them having the power to do so on a whim.

          Have shared the links.
          Good luck and cheers to all who can attend.

          • The sadistic thugs at my JCP are trying to get me to allow them access to my CV. I’ll have some fun with them and play them something rotten the next time I attend and also take my CV to them. I’ll accept whatever they say and do to my CV but soon as I get home will tear the JCP’s CV up and set fire to it.

            if we are emotionally stabbed, in all of it’s forms, we go ouch, hurt, upset, let down, angry…spit it back, no further explanation required, it’s their crap not ours, we don’t need to absorb it, but reflect it…dealt with, not festered…opening ones eyes to our toxic world, is extremely difficult…the system continues to try to crush one to keep fear/terror of the box intact, to keep control…once one discovers it is m/t one is free…life for many is no longer about social community, but the buying “freedom” paradox…once the door is opened there is no going back…lies do untold damage, only truth sets one free…

    “CLARKSON’S USE OF THE N WORD”

    YES THATS RIGHT, JEREMY CLARKSON’S USE OF THE N WORD GOT MORE ATTENTION FROM THE MEDIA THAN THE FORTY SOMETHING THOUSAND MURDERED BY OUR ASSASSINATION ARM OF THE GOVERNMENT, THE INGLORIOUS DWP……………

    HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE MINISTERS COOK UP A NEW CATEGORY FOR THE DISABLED AND JUST SLAY THEM AT WILL?

    IMAGINE THE GAINS TO OUR GOVERNMENT IF THEY DECIDED TO USE G4S TO TAG ALL THE USELESS EATERS, THEY COULD BURY THEIR MISTAKES IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER WHILE G4S MANIPULATED THE DEATH TOLL USING DEAD PERSONS IDENTITIES………

    OH, SORRY, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY DO AT PRESENT, ISN’T IT?

    “REMOVAL OF THE INDEPENDENT LIVING FUND IS AKIN TO PUSHING A DROWNING MAN UNDER THE WATER WITH YOUR FOOT”

    TAKING AWAY SOMEONES LIFELINE IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM THIS SHOWER OF SHIT, WHOM I HAVE GOT TO DESPISE INTENSELY…………

    THE REST OF THE WORLD ARE MOSTLY OBLIVIOUS TO THE OLD ETONIAN NAZI SPIRIT OF WELLBEING, WATCH THE CUNT’S START DANCING WHEN ANARCHY STARTS TO KICK IN.

    I DON’T THINK IT WAS SO MUCH OF CAMERON HAVING A HANDICAPPED SON, AS THE SON HAVING A HANDICAPPED DAD!

    THEY SAY YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AND HONESTLY I FEEL RATHER SICK………….

    SICK OF THOSE EVIL TWAT’S IN POWER THAT SEE FIT TO DEMONISE THE WEAKEST AMONGST US…..

    IAIN DUNCAN SMITH AND HIS RIGHT HAND THUGS HAD BETTER KEEP LOOKING BEHIND THEM, HISTORY HAS A WAY OF DEALING WITH THOSE WHO ENJOY INFLICTING PAIN.

  3. GEOFF REYNOLDS

    In a way i can understand why the government may want to take away the living fund…………….

    Most of them have been killed already!

  4. the dwp is currupt to fuck aka the department for deciet and sanctions

  5. Landless Peasant

    Good luck to DPAC, keep fighting these greedy psychopaths.

  6. Hey jobseekers: take a tip from Mike Sivier and wear shades for all your👿 JC/WP👿 appointments🙂

  7. off-topic –

    Will be attending a so-called ‘Employability course’ tomorrow & Friday and again the same two days next week at my fucked-up WPP. I honestly can’t see the fucking point in being made a pawn and cash chow for those evil sadistic WP wankers, all the more reason as I’m due to leave the scheme in less than seven weeks time.

    I know one thing for certain about tomorrow. One of the other attendees will be someone I know from my old school who is a complete and utter dippy waste of space – a complete loony dickhead from when I knew him at school, and is still the same loser now. I just hope that this utter numbnut isn’t there tomorrow as he is a right smart-ass who thinks he will get by by just joking around and generally being a complete ass, and which his manner will save him from being put into work. No employer would have him though as he is totally unemployable and has a criminal record for animal cruelty and neglect. Just shows you the type of person my WPP is actively keen in taking on, and to do anything to secure weekly payments all in the name of the welfare reforms and make it look good for themselves.

    Any tips on how I can sabotage my next four days and legally get out of their so-called employability course of which I know will just waste my time and be a complete disaster, especially if there are complete and utter smart ass twats also having to attend?

    • @ Fen Tiger – I wouldn’t try to get out of it. It is possible the scumbag you mention may not even turn up, and if he does, he will soon discover that if he acts up during it, it is sanction time. I had one of these recently, and only about half of the people given jobseekers direction to attend actually attended. I later read in the local paper that someone was charged with threatening the JCP staff, oddly enough on the next giro day (I know we don’t get giros anymore but I’m using that expression anyway) after the course.

      • I’ll see what happens from tomorrow onwards who else is turning up to attend this contravince session. Rather hoping that this lazy scumbag I know, since school, isn’t there otherwise I may complain to the rafters about the lazy git. I never did like him at school, nor have I changed towards him now. Especially more so when a few years ago he was convicted for animal neglect.

  8. Via the blog – Watching A4e, a mention of the re-launch of A4e’s Independent Living Services website.

    https://www.a4eils.com/

    Coincidence much?

    • Did the silly Emma Harrison get jailed for over-seeing massive fraud and false job out-come payments through non-existant A4E clients?

      • Alas, no. She, like all the other robber barons that are busy raping the people of the UK, still lives in a nice mansion and is still busy wiggling her sticky little fingers in as many government funded pies as ever.

        • I thought that A4E was short for ‘action for employment’ until I read somewhere on the internet that A4E really stands for ‘All for Emma’ No wonder the devious moo managed to evade questioning of her till fiddling operations…

      • Dippy Emma Harrison, do not believe that A4E is Harrison’s bastard there are obviously darker minds behind the A4E operation.

  9. Inside the tiny mind of IDI Amin Smith. Compare and contrast the musings of this hypocritical fascist from July 2013 and May 2014.

    Taken from the DWP’s own website and as far as I know still valid at present –

    JUNE 2013 –

    “Jobseeker’s Allowance claimants are not required to apply for zero hours contract vacancies and they will not face sanctions for turning down the offer of a zero hours contract.”

    This is a highly critical statement for anyone who may have been sanctioned by the jobcentre for refusing to pursue a job which comes with a zero hours contract. It opens the floodgates for a surge of complaints and appeals against such decisions from jobseekers who feel they may have been unfairly penalised, and it could cost the DWP a lot of money.

    So what does the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions think about these contracts? A question on zero hours contracts was posed to Mr Iain Duncan Smith in the House of Commons on Monday 1st July 2013, in which he gave the following reply:

    “I recognise that this is an issue. Some 200,000 people [now believed to be 1million or more] are employed on zero-hours contracts, which is just less than 1% of all workers. The current benefit system deals with claimants on zero-hours contracts, but universal credit will mean that they will not have to re-sign on. Personally, I think there should be far fewer zero-hours contracts. We are trying to work with employers and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to persuade those who have a genuine long-term job to get off zero-hours contracts and get a proper contract of work.”

    MAY 2014 –

    Iain Duncan Smith launched a robust defence of the use of zero-hour contracts – the day before the Conservatives try to rebrand as the “Workers’ party”.

    The Work and Pensions Secretary said the controversial employment arrangements, under which employees are not guaranteed weekly hours, can “allow employers to be competitive in response to market trends.”

    ** The bald-headed fanatic has now back-tracked on what he originally said last year and is now denying any involvement over his previous statements. Somebody please put the ugly little tory weasel out of his life before he peddles more back-tracking bollocks.

    IT’S NICE TO SEE THAT THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE, BETTER KNOWN AS, “MAKE IT UP AS WE GO ALONG UNTIL IT’S CHALLENGED”, HAS BEEN DEALT A COUPLE OF HAMMER BLOWS……………

    FIRSTLY THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD TO TOE THE LINE IN THE EXCHANGE OF VEHICLE REGISTRATION DATA BY THE EUROPEAN COURTS AND NOW A CHALLENGE COMES FORWARD FROM A FEMALE PRISONER DENIED ACCESS TO PRESENTS OF BOOKS.

    OF COURSE THE M.O.J. TRIED TO SAY THAT BECAUSE THE NEW LAW ON THE SENDING OF BOOKS TO PRISONERS, HAD NOT BEEN CHALLENGED WITHIN THREE MONTHS , IT COULD NOT STAND……

    NOW LETS SEE WHAT EUROPE HAS TO SAY.

    FOR FAR TOO LONG OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM HAS RODE ROUGHSHOD OVER EUROPEAN LEGISLATION, NO WONDER CAMERON WANTS OUT.

    IMAGINE HOW MUCH MORE EVIL THESE SCUMSUCKERS COULD INFLICT IF OUTSIDE OF EU LEGISLATION………

    • Europe hasn’t done much for human rights either Geoff. It’s easier to fight for your rights in your own country than having to travel to Europe.

    “not a bad statement from a lord on £300 a day expenses”

    Lord McConnell said some nations had used the global financial crisis as an excuse not to keep their promises to eradicate absolute poverty across the world, made around the time of the 2005 G8 Summit at Gleneagles.

    But the Labour peer, living on £1 a day for five days for the Live Below the Line campaign, said the UK was “by far and away the most generous in the world on these sorts of causes”.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-27294373

    • Lord McConnell, Scotland has been a poverty hell hole for decades thanks to your socialist cronyism, generations of Scots will be turning in their premature paupers’ graves at your self loathing hypocrisy and contempt for destitute children of Scotland.

      SUPERSPASTICS 1 IDS 0

      IN ANOTHER BLOW TO MR EL SUPREMO, THE BIGGEST SHITHOUSE EVER TO LEAVE A WOMB. THE COURTS HAVE FOUND IN FAVOUR OF THE UNDERDOG………..

      SMITH AND HIS ASSASSINS, THE DWP, HAVE SPENT A SMALL FORTUNE OF THE BENEFITS THAT THEY STOLE, TRYING TO HUSH UP THE FOUR REPORTS REGARDING “UNIVERSAL CREDIT”.

      DESPITE MORE PRESSURE TO WITHHOLD THE INFORMATION FROM PUBLIC SCRUTINY, A JUDGE REFUSED THE APPEAL AGAINST HIS RULING.

      PERHAPS WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO SEE THE MORTALITY STATISTICS THAT THE GOVERNMENTS EXTERMINATION SQUAD ARE LOATHE TO RELEASE?

      I PUT A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ABOUT UNIVERSAL CREDIT A WHILE BACK AND THIS WAS THEIR ANSWER;

      Thank you for your Freedom of Information request received 30 July 2013. You asked;

      QUESTION;
      “How much has been spent on this doomed fiasco?

      When will ministers accept that it is not fit for purpose and never will be?

      Whose head will roll if it is abandoned?

      What happened to the security measures within the software?

      How long before it is abandoned, leaving one of the largest bills for a failed project in British
      history?”

      ANSWER;
      We hold no information on a doomed fiasco.

      If you have any queries about this letter please contact me quoting the reference number
      above.
      Yours sincerely,

      DWP Central FoI Team

      THE DWP HAVE CLAIMED THERE WOULD BE A “chilling effect” IF THEY WERE FORCED TO PUBLISH – AFFECTING THE HONESTY OF CIVIL SERVANTS WHO CONTRIBUTE TO THE REPORTS……………………….

      “ROUGHLY TRANSLATED, THE LYING BASTARDS ARE HAVING TO EXPLAIN THE COSTLY, MONUMENTAL FUCK UPS THAT HAVE BEEN WITHHELD FROM THE ELECTORATE”

      • Certainly can’t trust the bog-eyed monster running the DWP after he has changed his tune over zero-hour contracts. First he announced he was going to clamp down on them (July 2013), and now (May 2014) he is defending them. What a stupid little tinpot slaphead he has himself outed to be.

        He know his days are for the chop, so he has to try and peddle more horse manure from his flabby gob just to try and claim the tory’s are now the ‘workers’ party. Fuckwit he is, and never done a days work in his life since leaving his mother’s house. I bet he has never even got his fingernails dirty from any work, except for scratching his fat ass.

  12. oh, another demo in london – is london the only place that matters????????
