#WEcan Expose The Wannabe Tory Councillor Behind The DWP’s Workfare Campaign

After failing to become a Tory Councillor Laura-Jane Rawlings decided she was the voice of youth employment instead

After failing to become a Tory Councillor Laura-Jane Rawlings decided she was the voice of youth employment instead

It’s been a humiliating week for the DWP on social media.  Yesterday hundreds of people used the hashtag #fakeDWPstories to take the piss out of the them after Welfare Weekly revealed that they were inventing case studies in support of benefit sanctions.

Whilst all this was taking place the DWP were desperately trying to rescue their #WEcan campaign which had also become a laughing stock on twitter.  This was a shabby attempt to promote unpaid work schemes, and came with a gushing press release promising that up to 12,000 young people would be posting ‘workies’ and sharing their stories of unpaid work experience.  Those 12,000 young people were supposed to come from their campaign partners Youth Employment UK (@YEUKYouth).  They never turned up.  Fucking kids eh.

At first glance Youth Employment UK appear to be exactly what they say, which is “The Voice for Youth Employment in the UK”.  On twitter yesterday they claimed that both the organisation, and the woman who runs it, are politically neutral and all they care about is helping young people get jobs.  They emphatically denied that their Chief Executive, Laura-Jane Rawlings, is a Tory.  That tweet has now been deleted.

In truth Laura-Jane Rawlings stood as a Conservative candidate in the 2011 Corby Council elections.  She lost and shortly afterwards set up Youth Employment UK.  And be in no doubt, Laura-Jane Rawlings is Youth Employment UK.  She is the sole director, the website is registered to her and even one of her claimed corporate patrons – plotr – is a company run by her.

Her qualification for this lofty position as The Voice for Youth Employment is that she’s a life coach.  In a nice little sideline business if you pay her £35 quid she will talk to you on the phone for 50 minutes.  Her coaching, according to her, is inspired by the discredited pseudo-science neuro-linguistic programming along with counselling and Cognitive Behavoir Therapy – neither of which she seems to be qualified in.  As she boasts on her website, she isn’t really qualified in anything at all.

But of course none of that matters if you know the right people in the Conservative Party and are prepared to say the right things.  Yesterday she gave a cautious welcome to the announcement that young unemployed people are to be sent on bootcamps or face benefit sanctions.  She sounds far more like the voice of the Conservative Party pretending to be neutral than she does the voice of youth employment.  And she has been well rewarded for it.  Whilst Youth Employment UK say they have not been paid by the DWP for the #WEcan campaign, they have received a huge of amount of free advertising including national media coverage.

Youth Employment UK claim to be led by their young members and youth ambassadors rather than just a Tory spiv with a big mouth.  If this is the case then those young people need to know they are ripping off themselves and millions of their fellow young people by endorsing workfare and benefit sanctions.  There is no evidence that Work Experience schemes help people get jobs.  A recent DWP evaluation found that young people who refused workfare were more likely to find work than those who went on the scheme.   Demand a wage and join the fight to destroy workfare.

  1. As a Life Coach does she claim a 95% success rate in curing life?

  2. hmmm

    Isn’t there a pattern forming here?

    First we have our friend who got 50K stuffed into his back pocket for NLP and curing the medically incurable [truly a miracle in it self – I wonder what the Medical Council thinks?]

    Now we have another sponger pop up doing NLP…

    I would wonder if like the aforementioned also got a nice 50K back pocket payment…

    How many more like this are there out there we don’t know about?

    • That ole’ devil IDS is throwing money to the wind with abandonment like no tomorrow, as if he has an endless pit stuffed with £50 notes. That money has obviously come from stolen benefits he had the audacity to authorise. Fucking lunatic needs to be sectioned before more deaths occur in his power-mad sanction killing machine.

      NLP and CBT: At the place where the DWP are sending me for CBT, which is at a place for the mentally ill (though they know I’m not), one of the volunteers (not a service user or ‘inmate’) says he is a Reiki practitioner. He believes in loads of weird conspiracy theories and rants all day nonstop about them, making him look like he’s a service user not a member of staff. He has said some quite bigoted things so far, and factually incorrect statements. He says as well that anything even poverty (it’s not a disease!) can be cured by alternative therapies. And (though qualified therapists should know this is totally illegal) he is going around saying he can cure cancer!

  3. Laura-Jane Rawlings – yet another wannabe who has spotted the potential to jump on the growing Work Programme gravy train and all of the millions on pounds wasted on it so she can live comfortably knowing all the misery this tory cock-up is causing doesn’t affect her, and nor does she give a flying fuck about.

    It’s only a matter of time before she puts together a website on the same lines as ‘startsmilingagain’ and peddles herself as a charlatan lifestyle guru with the power to change people’s lives for the better and claim that being happy is the key to getting a job under the knackered work programme.

    IDS and his pen-pushing numb-nuts must be rubbing their sweaty hands in glee with the promise she could pull in even more money for the tory turds through an extension of the work programme called ‘brainwashing you into eternal happiness’.

    Somebody should stop these greedy fuckers in power and all those others crawling out from under the rock from destroying lives and killing people through illegal sanctions and un-authorised health lifestyle guru brainwashing cobblers.

      Fen Tiger – You’ve totally hit the nail on the head with this post – brilliant!.

      • something survived...

        But jobs – most jobs these days and especially if zero-hours – don’t make you happy. They make you knackered, zombified, pissed off, feeling like shit. Yelling or snapping at friends. Too tired to remember to do important shit like pay bills or deal with debts. You tumble into your probably shitty home after another day of your shit job, practically comatose. In full knowledge that every day will be like this until you lose your shitty job or die. Even if you are making ‘loadsamoney’ and have a posh place you are probably not genuinely happy. Or necessarily a nice person…

        Home owners could be two missed mortgage payments from sleeping in doorways. And the stress of that knowledge must affect health. Without health, your job performance slides till you’re fired for getting ill, then told by DWP you are fit for work!

        • Santa hates you

          Something survived – Been there and got the T-shirt on feeling like shit. I worked for an organisation that drilled every last effort out my body and mind until after 4 years of doing this shit, fucked my work performance up due to depression. My employer then decided to suspend me from work for months under the lame excuse that I had sent a sexual harassment note to a colleague in my own handwriting! The note was not addressed to anyone, not dated, or made any sexual references towards this colleague. Equally, I had a completely satisfactory work record up until that point. During this period of suspension I had a complete mental breakdown. My doctor said I had clinical depression. I told my employer about my mental illness and they then said I must resign under a legally binding agreement so I would get a decent reference or they would dismiss me for sexual harassment. By that stage I was beaten and so resigned as I knew they wanted to get rid of me. Since then, having lost my job like this and my mental health, the DWP was in no way understanding to my plight.

          To them I’m rubbish. Given what’s happened in me, I suppose they have a point.

  6. “LAURA-JANE RAWLPLUG, A LESSON TO US ALL”

    The female guards at Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen and Ravensbrück are less well known than their male counterparts, but they were no less brutal

    ‘[They] hit the prisoners, who were almost as thin as skeletons with a thick stick … withholding of food and beatings, [they] also made the prisoners stand for hours’

    Scenes like this were inflicted by thousands of SS guards who reigned terror upon millions of prisoners interned in the hundreds of concentration camps throughout the Nazi regime. Names such as Josef Kramer, Rudolf Hoess and Theodor Eicke have become synonymous with such atrocities. Yet, to the female prisoners held in camps such as Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen and Ravensbrück, the names Irma Grese, Maria Mandl and Dorothea Binz – amongst many others – instilled as much, if not more, panic and fear than those of the SS men. In fact, the scene described above was committed by the Aufseherin (female overseer) Lehmann at Ravensbrück concentration camp, and was far from unusual in the female sections of camps.

    Of the 37,000 SS guards who actively participated in the daily suffering, torture and death of the internees, approximately 10 per cent were female overseers. Some of these overseers, including Irma Grese, were sentenced to death along with their male colleagues for ‘murder’ and ‘crimes and atrocities against the laws of humanity’

Are they sleeping with someone who knows someone? do they put these jobs on the U.J.M site ( I haven’t seen it ,mind you i haven’t seen any well paid jobs that this department keeps employing) A bloody life coach these people don’t know fuck about our lives or the problems and yet she has all the answers…..

    This really says it it all does’nt it!
    A wannabbee Tory bitch – so full of herself (after losing her election poll) that she has the absolute audacity to set up a company to take as much money as possible, from the ‘hard-working taxpayer’ of Britain. These, ‘tax-payers’ (such as myself) who have to get up at ‘silly-o-clock’ to get to my pig farmer employer (outside Hereford) and work a full day at minimum wage. I, for one have been a ‘victim’ of a ‘Tory’ Government in the past – working a ‘full-time week’ for ‘benefits’ + £10 per week + travelling expenses. The poor, the vulnerable, the sick & disabled – after all, I could be one of ‘these’ in the future – and the Tories – ‘fuck the poor, the vulnerable, the sick and the disabled’ Look after the very rich – the non-tax-payers, the bankers and the shareholders, the multinationals, the House of Lords and the Judiciary.

          ‘5 foot Latifa was forced to take an unpaid job lifting wheelie bins. However she found that a lot of the rubbish she was expected to deal with contained used drug needles. When one luckily stuck into her one day, she was inspired with a brilliant business plan. Sure, she was now HIV-positive; but that was defeatist talk according to her Life Coach. They visited her house daily to check A) That her mandatory picture of IDS was on the wall and that she wasn’t using it as toilet paper or a dartboard B) To observe her on film praying to it 5 times a day. Meanwhile her idea had taken off. She is now a self employed businesswoman who collects and distributes dirty needles. “We put them in an oil drum, shake them around, then pull them out at random. You never know what you’ll get. All those other needle exchanges were boring, using only clean new needles and costing too much money. We put stickers on for your kids to get into it too.” IDS recently sanctioned her for being away having her T-cells checked. While working in an alley scooping up the needles, Latifa was raped one day. The rapist was on a community litter picking placement nearby and had been stalking Latifa for weeks. She got pregnant and is about to become a single mother to a rapist’s HIV-positive baby. But as soon as it can walk, she plans to get it picking up dirty needles. It’s all part of the return to good old Victorian Underworld London values and lifestyle. Bring back hanging!’

  15. “FOR JUDGE MARK ROWLAND’S EYES ONLY”

    WELFARE campaigners are calling on the Scottish Government to intervene to protect people affected by benefit sanctions, after it was revealed that the UK Government admits cutting payments harms their health.

    The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) publishes guidance to the job centre officials who decide whether claimants should have their payments stopped.

    The rules appear to state that doing so for even two weeks will “usually” damage the claimant’s health. Some sanctions last longer than this, or are effectively indefinite.

    The Black Triangle Campaign, which lobbies for the rights of disabled people, said the guidelines were appalling and a “perversion” of discrimination laws, while a child poverty campaigner said they were beyond belief.

    In a section dealing with vulnerable people, officials termed decision makers (DMs) are advised to consider whether the vulnerable person’s health would be harmed more than the average person.

    The guidance says: “It would be usual for a normal healthy adult to suffer some deterioration in their health if they were without: 1. essential items such as food, clothing, heating and accommodation, or 2. sufficient money to buy essential items for a period of two weeks.”

    A vulnerable person is one who would suffer more than this, it suggests, adding: “The DM must decided if the health of the person with the medical condition would decline more than a normal healthy adult.”

    John McArdle, of the Black Triangle Campaign, said: “What decent civilised person would look at that and be anything other than utterly appalled by it?

    “Even if it were acceptable, we believe DMs are not qualified to make these sort of judgements.”

      • This is killing people, and the government knows it.

        They’re sufficiently embarrassed to try to cover it up. They appealed against the FOI request for statistics, and stopped collecting them too.

        But just because starving poor people to death is a little politically sensitive, it’s not going to stop them doing it. These aren’t Tory voters who are dying after all (!)

        • Mugabi is doing the exact same thing in Zimbabwe and even the UK Government hypocritically criticises him for it.
          But now I understand why they don’t actually sanction him or do anything to remove him from power.
          It must be like looking into a mirror.

        • There was a debate in the Scottish Parliament discussing bad/good work, income/lack of income on people’s health on the BBC Parliament channel yesterday. One of the comments was that an increase in JSA would increase jobseekers life expectancy. It then follows that reducing JSA or even stopping it wholesale will reduce jobseekers life expectancy. And this the whole point of sanctions – sanctions are designed to kill – on purpose! They want you DEAD!

      …………………lost for words, the hidden welfare mortality statistics say more than enough.

      • THERE was a time, aeons ago, that a government minister whose department was caught out telling bare faced lies would have had to resign for it. They’d have been slapped down and forced to make a grovelling apology to the House of Commons. That’s why cabinet ministers are paid so much more, because they are supposed to be responsible and the buck stops with them. They’re supposed to be accountable. But Iain won’t receive any sanctions for an action that would have resulted in a benefits claimant being sanctioned. It’s only the poor and the weak who have to suffer the consequences, not the rich and the powerful. That’s the real lesson of Iain’s sanction regime. We are governed by an unaccountable class which doesn’t need to bother with trivialities like truth, or even basic human decency. Iain’s department is also the department which insists that a raped woman prove that her child is a result of rape or she’ll get her benefits capped. And these are the people whose job is to ensure a basic standard of living for all citizens.

        These are the reasons why Jeremy Corbyn is attracting such support, why the SNP has crushed all opposition, why the British state is teetering on the verge and may not survive. It doesn’t deserve to survive. It’s a disgrace to common humanity.

    • “More lies expected from ids to hide real extent of welfare related deaths”

      The Government will reveal statistics for the number people who have died while claiming benefits next week, in a partial victory for campaigners.

      Tory Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith waged a legal battle to keep the figures secret even in the face of a ruling demanding their release.

      The department today announced a series of documents will be published on Thursday August 27th, detailing the number of deaths for people on out-of-work benefits, Employment and Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit or Severe Disablement Allowance.

      But campaigners worry the Government intend to ‘fudge’ the figures – releasing them in a form that’s impossible to compare to previous releases.

      • WHIICH IS NOTHING MORE THAN THE DWP AND BRITISH GOVERNMENT GIVING A CRAZED MADMAN AN ALIBI TO CARRY ON MURDERING THOSE THEY FIND NOT WORTHY OF A LIFE.

        • “Carry on the good work, Mike”

          Mike Sivier, the blogger whose Freedom of Information Request sparked the DWP’s panic, said the release is unlikely to include the actual number of deaths.

          Instead, the department has signalled that they’ll publish “Age-Standardised Mortality Rates (ASMR)” – ratios of deaths of claimants when compared with the population as a whole.

          The last time they published similar statistics in 2012, they published the total number of deaths. Some 10,600 people died between January and November 2011 while claiming Incapacity Benefit or Employment and Support Allowance.

          Mike Sivier said: “It is remarkable that, after three years of inactivity, the Conservative Government has rushed these ‘fudged’ figures into publication so soon after I won an appeal against the Department for Work and Pensions, meaning the actual numbers – not the ASMR fudge – would have to be published.”

          It’s understood the figures won’t include the number of claimants who have died while under benefit sanctions – something that more than 200,000 people have demanded in a recent online petition.

          Meanwhile, the DWP has appealed the against a decision to demand they publish the total number of deaths.

          They’ll take it to an Information Rights Tribunal, to be heard on November 10.

          When contacted, the DWP would not confirm what format the publication would be in.

          But in their appeal, barristers for the DWP said the department was preparing the numbers in the ‘ratio’ format.

            “They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the Scottish Parliament in the first place – and now it is clear they were just fobbing us off with promises that they had no intention of keeping.

            “ATOS are happy enough to do the UK Government’s dirty work by carrying out assessments that can lead to sanctions on welfare payments for disabled people – and they must now come clean on how much money they are making from this contract.

            “The Tory Government ministers hide from answering questions Scotland’s Parliament – but the sooner the organ grinder Iain Duncan Smith comes here to explain his decisions, which make life so difficult for so many vulnerable and hardworking Scots, the better.”

    This was a Soviet Victory of the Red Army against the Nazis
    and Resulted in Bulgaria turning against the Nazis whilst a Coup

  22. Another Fine Mess

    Public relations body investigating DWP fake welfare claimants leaflet
    CIPR has written to members who work at DWP to find out if they had any part in producing document which featured two non-existent benefits claimants
    http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/aug/19/public-relations-body-cipr-investigating-dwp-fake-welfare-claimants-leaflet

    • CIPR’s appear to have standards of ethical conduct does the PCS union?

      • something survived...

        Since they wrote a bullshit leaflet, can we write a bullshit ‘record of jobsearch’?

        • Idiotic Drunken Shite has got a bullshit CV and yet he landed a right cushy top job deciding who gets hammered with the Bedroom Tax and illegal benefit sanctions. Fucking right ugly cunt he is whom I wouldn’t want to meet on a dark night.

          If I falsified my CV to land a cushy, well paid job I would have been sacked for gross mis-conduct and would automatically lose any JSA for a minimum three years. How the fuck did the DWP let in a monster such as loony Smith, or are they all fucking brain dead cunts in the first place? I expect you’d have to be a brain dead zombie to work there in the first place or you were rejected for every other job going for simply having a fake CV, in the same manner as the slap-headed wanker they call ‘sir’ or ‘overlord high grand master’

    #LabourPurge is up there….

    • The Labour Party’s Beer Hall Putsch.

    • OBD: Off topic but ill ask here as you may know, living in Scotland. If you’re cited as a witness in a court case do you have to go? I told the police i wasn’t willing to give evidence when they asked me. Then i got this friggin’ citation to appear as a witness through the post. I’m bloody raging about it as my evidence is no evidence at all. I don’t even see why they want me to attend. It’s BS!!!

      Bloody pathetic.

      • overburdenddonkey

        raining
        yes, i would think so…best check with cab…

        • Yeah the thing is a policewoman took a statement from me and asked if i was willing to appear at court. Indicates that there is an option not to. Thing is if i don’t go i don’t want a warrant out for my arrest!!! LOL!

      • McCaber and Co. (Criminal Defence Solicitors)

        It depends if you are a defence or a crown witness. If you are a witness for the defence it is the defence lawyer who has to cite you; your citation will be delivered by a sheriff officer or whatever they are called these days, and if you don’t turn up in all likelihood nothing will happen. But if you are witness for the Crown then you will be be cited by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service and to give your citation added weight it will be hand-delivered by the Police with an accompanying threat of 21 days in prison if you don’t turn up. Not sure if anything would happen if you didn’t turn up, it would probably depend on the individual case and circumstances, if a Sheriff/Judge would issue and arrest warrant. Reluctant witnesses don’t make good witnesses. Depending on how critical the testimony was they would probably just call the case again or just drop it.

        Another thing to note if you are down as a Crown witness the police will have taken a statement, and it is up to the defence agent to secure one.
        But if you are a defence witness the police will pursue you for a statement. Generally this means that there will be loud banging at your door two to threes days before the trial (generally just after the shift change at 7am, 3pm and 11pm).

        You should never give a statement to the police if you aren’t willing to be a witness in court; one could also ask why on earth are you giving statements to the police in the first place. Are you assuming that the accused in going to plead guilty, something the police always say to address these concerns: “I wouldn’t worry about appearing in court; they always plead guilty”. It all fine and dandy making statements to the police but if you lack the moral fibre to face those you readily accuse in court then you need to think again.

        • McCaber and Co. (Criminal Defence Solicitors)

          Generally this means that there will be loud banging at your door two to threes days before the trial (generally just after the shift change at 7am, 3pm and 11pm). – just to be clear the police will call 3 times a day – this is standard procedure.

        • McCaber and Co. (Criminal Defence Solicitors)

          Off topic but the procedure of the police proves how unfair and one-sided the criminal (in)justice system. They do this so that the Crown will know in advance what the defence case it – and it is the police that they send round to get a statement. As for the defence we are left with usually the services of a private detective to secure a statement.

          And the Crown as a matter of course never furnishes the defence with the prosecutions statements. We have to wait for a pre-trail hearing in order to ask the Sheriff/Judge to rule that the Crown must provide full disclosure. Of course the Crown, as a matter of course, will always object to full disclosure. Without full disclosure it is practically impossible to prepare a defence.

        • LOL! Hahahaha! Thanks McCaber.

        • Interesting, it has now been revealed that Police State Scotland didn’t take a statement from “Harry Clarke”, or “Rudolph” as he was known in hospital to protect his privacy, the driver involved in the Glasgow bin lorry crash.

    A schoolboy on work placement has died after an industrial accident in Aberdeenshire.

    Michael McLean, 17, was found unconscious at Denholm Oilfield Services in Inverurie on Friday.

    His life-support machine was later switched off at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Michael, from Kincorth in Aberdeen, was on his last day of a summer placement.

    The teenager’s father, Mark McLean, works at the company.

    A company spokesman said the everyone at the “close-knit” firm was “absolutely devastated”.

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is investigating.

    • I can’t see the Work programme provider who sent the poor lad to a death trap being shut down by the HSE for a shocking dangerous breach of the Health & Safety At Work Act.

      Money is everything and comes before human life when it comes to ALL fucking Nazi scum work programme providers. The poor lad will be lucky to get buried in an old tea chest if the WPP was to pay for the funeral. Scammy Tory cunt WPP bastards.

    Simon Danczuk

    Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk received £10,000 for an article he “contributed” just five hours of his time too – £2,000 an hour. The payment was received by the Labour MP from the Murdoch owned News Group Newspapers, publisher of the Tory supporting newspaper, The Sun.

    The figure was revealed in the Register of Members’ Interests:

    24 July 2015, received £10,000 for an article I contributed to. Hours: 5 hrs.
    (Registered 28 July 2015)

    Mr Danczuk also received a payment of £3,000 from ITV for two hours of television appearance/s – £1,500 an hour.

    1 August 2015, received £3,000, for appearance/s. Hours: approx. 2 hrs.
    (Registered 03 August 2015)

    So far in 2015, Mr Danczuk has declared earnings of £17,960 from outside interests in addition to his MP salary, which including a recent 10% pay rise is now £74,000.

    Mr Danczuk’s expenses claim for the financial year 2014/15 have not yet been published – in 2013/14 he claimed a total of £206,908.92.

    Isn’t that disgraceful about Danczuk – another ‘pig’ with his nose in the trough! sarah – thank you for letting us all know about this, as normally we would not know anything about it!
    Greenwood4727 – Thanks for that also -sounds really good!
    It ought now to go viral on the net and be played on Sky News – I bet they would NOT play that – too politically sensitive for their Tory ‘ass’ darling!
    After all Sky News do not want people out there to know the real truth about what this cunt and his DWP entourage of dutiful monkeys are doing to our working poor, poor, vulnerable, sick & disabled population!
    Its about time that all of these heartless bastards from the very top to the very bottom, were investigated, tried in Court and if needs be, jailed for their undoubted crimes.
    Good to hear that the UN may be investigating what is going on – only one problem here though, as I understand it, they can only ‘advise’ the British Government, – they can not take them to Court.
    The European Court of Human Rights should get involved as should the Equality and Rights Commission in G.B. WHERE are both of these organisations in all this? Judge Rowland should also be prosecuted.
    Glad to see that the CIPR is investigating DWP – I expect that DWP will try to twist it and cover it all up as usual.
    Terence Donnelly – You are definitely right there! These greedy bastards believe that once they are in ‘Public Office’ then they can do exactly what they like. If you or me did any of this stuff – we would be tried & jailed!
    DWP re due to release the stats on deaths on 27th August – how very convenient – will it be the truth & the whole truth I wonder! – I somehow doubt it! More FOI requests required and any ‘other’ publicity is required to let the general population what is going on & the crimes that are being committed by this Government in ‘their’ name.
    Meanwhile, my friends please continue to let us know what is going on when you can. And also please continue to ‘pressure’ these heartless bastards in ANY way possible – from Facebook & Twitter etc, etc, to direct action. It’s the only way that all of us are going to win against this increasingly totalitarian regime of Neo-Nazi scum of the earth.

    Daily Express tomorrow: William & Kate have got permission to build a £60,000 tennis court. I wonder who’s paying for that! The queen (Ha Ha!) or the ‘hard-working taxpayer’ – they might even pay for it themselves (Ha Ha!) – it’s certainly alright for ‘some’!
    And of course, absolutely nothing about the IDS shithead or the DWP and their lies.

    • It will be built on the ashes of those that the DWP lay to rest. The net will represent the divide between rich and the poor, the tramlines the forgotten electrification of northern railway routes and the ballboys, the young kids that eminent politicians prefer.

    • £60,000 for a bleeding tennis court? Wimbledon tennis club is therefore far too down market and shabby for the likes of the pampered elite living off the rest of us in cushy palace buildings and doing fuck all for their money.

      And another thing, if William and Kate don’t want people taking photos of their two kids, they why the fuck do they take them to a public children’s play area all of the fucking time instead of having play equipment in their own fucking garden? Is their garden too small to have just a swing or sand pit, or is it they don’t want to ruin the grass? Fucking snobs having their cake and eating it.

      Upper class twits will always be upper class twits whom never change. The royal family will never marry commoners or into commoner families – they only ever marry into upper class families with double-barrelled posh names and loaded with money either through posh businesses they own or because their are lord and lady of the manor.

      Kate comes from such an upper class lord of the manor family. Would William or Charles have married into an ordinary family living on a council estate. Never, as this would taint the blood line too much and eventually we would be ruled by chavs and layabouts wearing a crown on their heads.

      Roll on the revolution so this country will no longer be in debt having to constantly pay out for that ‘royal’ family and the upkeep of every building and plot of land they own. The Queen even owns the coastline for fuck sake. Bit fucking stupid as I have never seen her build a sandcastle in all the years I went to the beach for a day out.

    • Even if the petition numbers reach 200,000+ we expect the tory tossers to disregard the petition and claim ‘we are far too busy to respond and debate the subject.

      Debating the petition and actually acting upon it and putting it into law or forcing IDS the sack are two different things that are not compatible.

        • Just seen a programme on tv that is stating emphatically that the judiciary in the USA are accepting bribes from lobbyist groups to push for more light offenders to be given custodial sentences.

      • DWP NAMES FUDGE FACTORY

        The First-tier Tribunal (Information Rights) has provided details of the venue for the ‘benefit-related deaths’ hearing at which the DWP will appeal for permission not to publish the exact number of people who have died while claiming incapacity benefits since November 2011.

        It will be at Field House, 15 Bream’s Buildings, London EC4A 1DZ, starting at 10am on November 10 this year. Apparently it’s a five-minute walk from Chancery Lane tube station; those of you with disabilities will need to plan extra time to allow for your conditions (although obviously you don’t need This Writer to remind you of that).

        All tribunal hearings of this kind are open to the public, so if you are able to attend, please make a note of the date and location in your diary and come along. If you can’t, tell all your friends to come in your place

        Any and all support on the day would be welcome. The Conservative Government, by rush-publishing its fudged ‘ASMR’ statistics on benefit-related deaths, is hoping to quiet public unrest about the number of deaths that have taken place after its “welfare reforms”.

        It seems clear that ministers are terrified that this issue will continue to blow up in their face.

        This is your chance to show that you are not going to let it lie down and die.

        • HOW THE DWP PLAN TO BURY BAD NEWS (along with their victims)

          “The DWP have cynically arranged for the long-awaited employment and support allowance (ESA) death statistics to be released immediately before a bank holiday in the middle of the parliamentary summer recess, Benefits and Work can reveal. This is a traditional method of burying bad news in the hope it gets the minimum possible publicity.

          The ESA death statistics will be released on Thursday 27 August, immediately before the bank holiday in England and Wales on Monday 31 August.

          So, not only will the news receive much less attention because it is in the immediate run up to the holiday, but parliament is in recess, so ministers cannot be challenged on the statistics.

          Given the enormous delay in publishing these figures, it is very clear that the timing was absolutely designed to ensure the figures receive a s little attention as possible.

              1, In your reply of 21st August 2015 you claim that the Home Office

                  “was he being evicted, and why?”

                  The incident began when officers escorted a housing official to a residential address in Tilson Gardens, Brixton, south London as part of a pre-planned eviction, Scotland Yard said.

                  At 9.45am, unarmed officers tried to enter the property. As they were doing so, a man was seen emerging from one of the rooms.

                  Officers withdrew and a police negotiator, London Ambulance Service (LAS) and firearms officers were called to the scene.

                  At about 4.45pm the man was shot by police outside the premises.

                  The man was treated at the scene by ambulance staff and taken to a south London hospital suffering serious injuries.

                  A Yard spokesman said that, as in any shooting, officers from the Metropolitan Police’s directorate of professional standards had been informed, and the incident had been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which has started an independent investigation.

  65. Forgive me intruding on your web site but i thought it was about time i came forward and said my piece.
    Lately, your site has featured, rather strongly, articles regarding an appeal court judge named Mark Rowland.

    I too have had the misfortune to come across this rather unsavoury character in my pursuit of my stolen disability benefits by an equally unsavoury ATOS Hcp.
    Rowland disputed that any of the disability discrimination laws, the equality laws or human rights laws had been breached.
    This man is nothing short of an utter disgrace having well documented links to the DWP.

    I suspect the same guy has quashed many more appeals using the same rhetoric.
    Would any others like to speak out?

    • Join the merry band my friend.

    • They have changed laws and cooked the books to steal benefits from people and then deny benefits to others. All to give money to high flying Corporate greedy pigs and bent banks.

  66. Another rough sleeper left to die on our streets

    Gary Dunn, 53, was found collapsed in Leather Lane, Southend, and died before medics were able to treat him.

    Volunteers at a soup kitchen claim Mr Dunn “fell through the cracks” of a system which struggles to deal with homeless people with alcohol issues.

    Homeless charity Harp has confirmed Mr Dunn was housed in a rehabilitation centre, inWestcliff, but was forced to leave after a month due to his drinking and behaviour.

    He was later forced to leave the charity’s night shelter for the same reason.
    Caren Rowson, of the Warrior Soup Kitchen, which feeds the homeless twice a week, said: “He was set up to fail.

    “He always wanted another chance but in the end he was just left to die.”

  67. New claims of Atos assessment lies are ‘tip of a massive iceberg

    Fresh concerns about the behaviour of Atos and its assessors emerged after Disability News Service (DNS) revealed last week how an Atos nurse repeatedly lied about a disabled man he was assessing for personal independence payment (PIP).

    The nurse, who is believed to be still carrying out assessments for Atos, stated in his report – in addition to a string of other incorrect statements – that Colin Stupples-Whyley had attended the PIP assessment alone, even though his partner had sat with him throughout the interview.

    Now, following the publication of that story, other disabled claimants have come forward to describe to DNS how their Atos assessors “lied” about them in benefit assessment reports.

    Former nurse Sue Hardy, who lectured on nursing for 22 years at the University of Bedfordshire, until she was forced to retire due to ill-health in 2013, said she was appalled when she read the report written by the Atos nurse who assessed her for the out-of-work disability benefit employment and support allowance (ESA).

    The report was littered with errors, but most worrying was the cognitive tests section, which was filled in by the assessor even though none of the tests had been carried out.

    Hardy, who was accompanied by a friend to the assessment, said: “This nurse lied on my assessment form. Having just had to give up my 35-year career as a nurse and senior lecturer, I found her assessment erroneous in many areas.”

      yes, the WCA et al and sanctions should be scrapped, that’s the root of the problem….the WCA is put in place so that they claimant has to prove need, it’s trial by ordeal…

  68. paultheswineherd

    Why is this Judge Rowland still in his job? There must be a conflict of interest I’d have thought! As Bizzalee said – there must be many, many other miscarriages of justice carried out by him and these have to be reported so that the public understands exactly what is going on in ‘their’ name.
    Is he not accountable to anyone? But, like IDS perhaps he is ‘unsinkable’ and ‘unremovable’. Can no one ‘sink’ or ‘remove’ this bastard also?
    But, having said that – the Chilcott enquiry has been dragging on for over 7 years now at a ‘reported’ cost of £10 million (and the rest I suspect!)
    Perhaps Rowland is very good at dodging any shit thrown at him, just like so many ‘Politicians’ and ‘Public Office’ people nowadays in Britain.

      MY FINAL VERDICT ON JUDGES? A LAW UNTO THEMSELVES

      Investigator says she got no co-operation and only met law chief once in three years

      By Mark Aitken Political Editor Sunday Mail 07 December 2014

      A former watchdog who probed complaints about legal chiefs has hit out at Scotland’s judges in her farewell report.

      Moi Ali was appointed the country’s first ever judicial complaints reviewer in 2011 but announced her decision to quit earlier this year because she had no power and the role was “tokenistic”.

      Her final report details complaints of alleged racial bigotry, bullying, lying, conflicts of interest and making secret recordings of meetings.

      And Ali, who left the role in August, reveals Scotland’s top judge, Lord Gill,only met her once.

      She said: “Unfortunately, there has been little interest in the positive difference that the JCR could make.

      “Although I have had a good working relationship with the judicial office, I have met the Lord President just once in three years.

      “My interactions with both the Lord President’s office and the judicial office have focused more on what I cannot do rather than what I can do and as such, an opportunity for whole system improvement has been lost.

      Reform campaigner Peter Cherbi said: The current system of judges slapping each other on the back and dealing with their own complaints is clearly unfit for purpose.

      “Ms Ali found investigations by the judicial office were delayed for months, officials were confused as to their own procedures, and complaints were treated with the disdain.

      “One complaint filed by a mother on behalf of her disabled son was kicked out because too much time had passed and the judge could have forgotten the events. There’s not much point in having judges who forget what they had for breakfast but can remember to pick up a £200,000 salary and all the expenses trappings of judicial office.”

      Independent MSP John Wilson said:”It is up to the new justice Secretary to take a serious look at the report by Moi Ali and develop a system that is independent of the Lord President to bring confidence in the judicial review process.”

      A judicial office spokesman said: “The judicial office has fully co-operated and will continue to work with the judicial complaints reviewer to take forward the recommendations of the Lord President’s consultation on the complaints process.

    overburdenddonkey – yes, you are right there – it all stems from the WCA and the total shambles of a way that is being ‘administered’, from private companies in it to make as much dosh as possible down to the often twisted, unqualified HCP’s (which bring their own ‘professionalism’ into total disrepute) who if they do not personally try to get their ‘customers’ off of their deserved benefits, then they pay the price too. The Tories and most of labour, as you rightly say are fully supportive of all of this barbaric cruelty to poor and unfortunate people, knowing that they do not have the ‘official’ clout to fight it. If people can, then they MUST appeal – if they do not, then they lose ot anyway. Any hope at all is worth going for and fighting your corner for. These priveleged and rich twats do not give a tuppeny fuck. After all, they are still getting their masses of money and expenses and anything else that they can get their grubby financial paws on and their corrupt and sleazy friends and acquaintances will fully support them in doing it. What really worries me also is the creeping and gradual ‘privatisation’ of ‘our’ NHS. If we lose this many of the people in GB will be in a terrible place. Credit Cards/Health Insurance fronm the likes of UNUM, Atos, Maximus & Capita – we might as well all try to emigrate to the USA – because it will be much the same! ‘Cameroncare’ under these awful private companies (not ‘Obamacare’) – the thought fills me with total horror.
    Toddy and sarah – I hope that Geoff is alright – he’s not been on here for days and days now.
    No Oppression – Yes, fully agree my friend – you have told many truths in your last post and Britain is now becoming an awful hellhole to live in,
    Only though, if you are NOT rich!

    overburdenddonkey – Yes, it is the WCA itself and it should definitely be scrapped. But, unfortunately they are DEFINITELY NOT going to scrap it.
    As the ‘Political Parties’ have it at the moment – both Tory & (shamefully also), Labour are fully happy to continue with this terrible policy of terrible cruelty to people who do not deserve this unfairness, to save absolutely fuck all.
    So, if they are not going to scrap it – then what is left?
    They will still call people in to be assessed for the WCA.
    With all of the HCP’s (physiotherapists, psychotherapist.s, chyropodists, (even paramedics now!) etc, etc trying to keep their pathetic jobs with ATOS etc, – all of these have nothing at all to be proud of.
    They are all bringing their own ‘medical’ qualifications into total disrepute by signing up to these awful companies. ‘Loads of Money’ comes to mind.

  84. paultheswineherd

    overburdenddonkey – I have just had a look at what Lucy Reynolds has said. After the terrible debarcle with the breast implants which have gone so wrong by ‘private’ doctors doing these procedures – as usual, the NHS has had to pick up the tab to correct what these ‘private’ doctors have done.
    Private doctors = Loads of Money from their ‘private’ patients.

      the point is that the mechanisms for the irreversible privatizing/profitising of the nhs have been slowly put in place since thatcher’s time… see Lucy Reynolds talks to Jill Mountford it’s over an hr long…the key to understanding the WCA and winning appeals, is who furnish’s the descriptors, and knowing that the WCA SHOULD NOT EXIST and therefore the reasons it does exist…which is to find people fit for work and put people off applying for esa…

    buttcrack – yes – you have definitely got this right.
    This, oh, so fallen Tory wannabee – she has picked herself up for her low, low life, to chrysalis into a ‘phoenix-bird’ angel to ‘help’ young unemployed people into jobs. What a total bitch – hopefully to get some ‘hard-working taxpayers’ money to help her sorely forgotten ambitions.
    The only problem is that the way it is today – this cow will probably win and get the hundreds of thousands of pounds of ‘tax-payers’ money that she, oh so much, desires. Get a REAL job, you cowbitch, – just like me and the rest of us have to do do.

  86. paultheswineherd

    ‘She’ ought to get up at 6-7AM every day – to work 5 days a week at the minimum wage (to feed and look after ‘someone-else’s) boars, sows, weaners and piglets. (I have to work occasional Saturdays/Sundays if and when required). She would very soon give up on doing this job I am sure! (of course, we are lucky at the moment – we also get Working tax Credits), but according to Cameron and his friends – we are soon going to lose this help and we may even be out on the streets in the future!
    Shame on the bastards.

    overburdenddonkey – I agree entirely. The WCA, in it’s present form should have been scrapped years ago. It is really ‘not fit for purpose’. I have so many friends who have been affected by this – both cut off from benefits (through the WCA system) for no apparent reason and being put into the WRAG group, with no support at all to ‘get a job’ as such.
    I really fear about what is going to happen to us in the future – at nearly 60 years old, if I was made redundant – I would not like to end up having to go into the JCP bastard ‘Jobsearch’ system. According to what I see on here, at almost 60 years old, I would be expected to look for work from day 1!
    And, I do not have a private pension that I can dip into!

      one has to deexist them and not recognize them….see them for what they are, that way one can hold onto much of one’s personal power….knowledge is power..
      i have had many appeals and wca’s, i can recall none of the names of the people involved, and i’m not the slightest bit interested in them as people..
      i feel no animosity towards them, nor do i see them as sociable human beings….yes, people are being shifted from support group to wrag…

    • When looking through Geoff Reynolds earlier posts, he states that his Atos report says he was seen to sit in a chair and get up unaided and got onto a couch to refuse to be examined.
      He later states that his medical report goes on to say that he “was observed to stand, holding his walking stick, for the whole duration of the examination”
      The whole report was nothing but a tissue of lies yet he has been without sufficient to exist on for over two years.
      Judge Mark Rowland must be an utter bastard, given that Geoffs case highlights the inadequacy of his judicial position.

      Twats like Rowland should not be in a position to abuse the disabled.

  90. “THE LUCKY POLICEMAN”

    How fortunate, the police have now discovered a gun in the property where the guy who was shot earlier this week, resided.
    He was shot after police and a housing officer tried to evict him. Surely the only reason you would shoot somebody is if he was brandishing a weapon at the time.
    It seems highly irregular to put bullets into an unarmed person?
    Mind you, brazillian electricians at Stockwell underground would say otherwise, if they were alive today, that is.

    We are becoming more and more Americanised. The finding of weapons after a shooting seems to have increased, no end, over the last few years.
    Indeed, i can think of three prominent cases in the UK where weapons just seemed to appear afterwards that helped the police case to draw firearms and discharge them.
    In fact, one was found in the boot of a suspects car and another was miraculously found behind a wall several days later.
    If you can tranquilise an animal, you can tranquilise a human being, what the fuck are armed officers doing at an eviction?

    The mind boggles, what next, the death sentence for taking a choc ice from a fridge?

    • When I worked in CID we used to keep a ‘stash’ of drugs back in the nick for planting on suspects…😉 Wouldn’t put it past the Old Bill to be keeping a ‘stash’ of guns back in the nick for this very same purpose…😉

    • Increasingly social housing providers are increasingly becoming part of system that is in fear of the people they house. It has come to the point where they will lie and play tenants off against one another, to the point where housing officials are generally regarded like we generally regard the police, bailiffs or cockroaches – and that is why armed police are there, partially to protect their fellow oppressors, but also to instill into the minds of the public at large that the poor, those in social housing are to be feared, that they are tantamount to being terrorists, and therefore the presence of armed police is legitimate.

      It’s all bollocks, of course, as we know, but since when has that stopped them?

    We have to thank the in-human Idiotic dumbwanker Smith for this barbaric display of his fellow man. Rob Tomlinson, who has cerebral palsy, has to bathe in a paddling pool after Iain Duncan Smith’s rules forced him out of the home converted for his care.

    The Ironic aspect about this is that his former four-bedroom converted home was taken by an elderly couple exempt from the bedroom tax. Fucking in-bred cunt that is in personal charge of the fucked up bedroom tax and yet I bet he laughs his arse of when reminded of this shocking story.

    Is there absolutely no way that IDS & Judge Mark Rowland (amongst others) could be brought to book for ‘committing crimes against the British population’ whilst holding ‘Public Office?
    After all, Tony Bliar was called up to answer in an inquiry over ‘his’ part in the Iraq War (although as yet, he has not had to face a ‘trial’ as such!)

    • As well as dragging the UK into an illegal war it was Tony fucking Blair’s truly evil administration that introduced sanctions into the benefits system – we are now paying the price!

      What about this Corbyn character? When he takes the reins of power does he intend to scrap sanctions, and does he intend to offer an immediate apology for the pain, suffering, misery, suicides, destitution and deaths an utterly cruel and abhorrent abomination of a policy introduced by HIS fucking party have been responsible? Or is Corbyn another one of those: “I believe sanctions have a place in the benefits system by only as a last resort. There has to be a mechanism to deal with claimants who refuse to stick to their agreements.” cunts which was incidentally the line those shower of utter, utter fucking cunts in the Scottish Parliament took.

      it really comes to something that we human beings need ‘proof’ that human beings will suffer and the sufferings without suffient income…imv the campaign should be focused on scrapping sanctions et al…and highlighting the dire consequences of behaviourism on humanity in all it’s forms….

    • Just the very act of being sanctioned, the very fact that an entity is attempting to KILL you; the knowing that an entity wants you DEAD leaves a lingering, everlasting most bitter taste in the mouth.

      • Even knowing that being sanctioned is a real possibility & the constant threat of it can’t easily be ‘un-felt’.

      Iain Duncan Smith – have no worries my (not) friend.
      All that I have to say to you is – just tot up your sleazy points and count your loads of money at your own pace and also your own ‘god-given’ blessings.
      I can assure you that we are going after you and intend to bring your sorry ass to justice – after all, you, of all the ‘lovely’ people really deserve this.
      Also, I will personally not forgive you for having a really good go at my friend Fen Tiger – who has spoken for ALL of us on here and is telling the real truth about what you and your decrepid and also deceitful DWP has, and is, doing to so many deserving people.
      You care not for the sick & the disabled and the poor – (even such as me on my minimum wage). I am sure that you will be prosecuted for your crimes that you have ordered and permitted through your beloved DWP. You my (not) friend have it all to come and you totally deserve it.
      Be prepared – ‘something’ is definitely on the way to you, – not today – maybe not tomorrow, not even next week – BUT, ‘in the future’ and (most probably) well before the 2020 General Election, I can promise you that it is definitely you will live to see it. What it is – well, you will have to wait & see.
      Just wait and pray – Just wait and pray and further, just you ‘wait’ and pray. You, my (not) friend are on our hit list. Just pray that it is NOT you.

          By the way – this information is meant and also directed towards the ‘real’ Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Works & Pensions – and NOT the ‘troll’ which is purportedly on here in IDS’s name!
          The ‘real’ IDS – You had better look out. You will definitely not see what is on the way to you. You WILL be surprised and also very dismayed at the justice which IS going to be meted out to you in due course. We are watching you at a discreet distance. Watch your back my (not) friend.

          • They all are tory cunts ‘in power’ whom think they have the upper hand with us UK citizens. We are their fucking bosses, not them.

            And as for any tory supporting troll (going by the name of Iain Duncan Smith or gimcrack on here) who wants to take me on for me simply telling the truth about the whole system, don’t waste your time bandying words with me as I will simply ignore you.

            I have been through the fucking grinder on more than one occasion with the jobcentre and have had many battles with them for simply standing up for my rights under the ECHR act and for trying to stop them dehumanise me through sanctions and every single work programme and new deal going – of which none of them put me into proper work as I was lead to believe by them at some stage, but instead was placed in a fucking death trap of a placement breaching Health & Safety At Work Act.

            If I seem to rant, it is against the government making me feel like a worthless criminal for simply being un-employed through enforced redundancy and not getting a scrap of any help from a bunch of fucking losers in a so-called jobcentre. I will only end the fight against David Camoron and his bunch of brain dead clowns when they are all tried for crimes against humanity through illegal sanctions, the mis-work programme and bedroom taxes.

          • paultheswineherd

            To the ‘real’ Iain Duncan Smith: Due to the unfair treatment that you and ‘your’ own DWP have meted out to so many undeserving people – I can assure you now that you had better be prepared for justice to be meted out. In the near, mid, or distant future and at a date that is ‘suitable’, this will be done. I would very strongly advise you IDS to watch your back. Justice is at last and very deservedly, on it’s way to you.

    • The hatchet will be in your head for being a complete asshole over your bedroom taxes and illegal sanctions.

  97. JUDGE MARK ROWLAND’S HENCHMEN ISSUED WITH GE OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD

    GUIDELINES on how to deal with suicidal benefits claimants have been handed out by the Department for Work and Pensions to Scots workers tasked with rolling out the UK Government’s controversial welfare reforms.
    As part of a six-point plan for dealing with suicidal claimants who have been denied welfare payments, call-centre staff in Glasgow have been told to wave the guidance, printed on a laminated pink card, above their head.
    The guidance is meant to help staff dealing with unsuccessful applicants for Universal Credit who are threatening to self-harm or take their own life.
    A manager is then meant to rush over to listen in to the call and workers – who insist they have had no formal training in the procedure – must “make some assessment on the degree of risk” by asking a series of questions.
    One section of the six-point plan, titled “gather information”, demands that staff allow claimants to talk about their intention to commit suicide.

  99. “BURNHAM IN THE POCKET OF PHARMACEUTICAL GIANTS”

    Front-runner in the Labour leadership contest and former Health Secretary Andy Burnham has hired lobbyists with connections to major pharmaceutical companies and private healthcare providers to work on his campaign.

    Sources working for his rivals said the revelations could hurt his credentials as a defender of the NHS.

    A lobbyist who counts a string of drugs companies as clients has been appointed by Andy Burnham to help run his campaign to become Labour’s next leader.

    John Lehal, who runs Insight Consulting Group, has taken leave from the company that he set up to become Mr Burnham’s campaign director of his leadership bid.

    He is joined on the Burnham campaign team by Katie Myler, a managing director at the lobbying firm Burson-Marsteller, whose clients have recently included HCA international – one of Britain’s leading private healthcare providers.

    John Lehal John Lehal

    The appointments are said to have “raised eyebrows” among rival campaign teams.

    “It’s just a question of how it looks,” said one Labour source connected with a rival campaign.

    Mr Burnham has previously been critical of the Conservatives links to lobbyists criticising the appointment of Lynton Crosby to run the Tories’ election campaign given his company’s links to alcohol and tobacco companies. He has also strongly condemned the Conservatives for opening up the NHS to private-sector providers describing it as “indefensible”.

    Mr Lehal’s clients in the UK have included the pharmaceutical giants Pfizer, Novartis and Bristol-Myers Squibb all of whom make multi-million pound revenues from the NHS. Other clients include Look Ahead Care and Support Ltd that provides services for people with learning disabilities and mental health issues. Of six centres, run by the company and recently inspected by the Care Quality Commission, just one was rated good, four “required improvement” and one was rated inadequate.

    • You did not need this many qualifications to join the SS, yet the only real quality needed to join INGEUS is a total hatred for fellow human beings.

      • It’s nice to note that the staff of IGNORAMUS work a 37.5 hour week and are not required to work zero hours or shifts.

        • Not forgetting the lazy twats at Seetec whose office in my home town is now only open just two days a week after seeing their funding from the DWP scrapped, probably because of the re-employment rates in Seetec of their clients have dropped to zero in the last few weeks.

          If the lazy turds at Seetec are still closed most of the working week I’ll probably be able to smash the windows in and nick their paperwork for their remaining few clients.

    • Who would want to work in a dumb place such as Ingeus? No working over 37.5 hours a week, no working at weekends, no working at night after 5pm, no zero-hour contracts. Fucking lucky wankers have got it easy and have never had it so good.

      I had to work alternate shifts early and lates some years ago for some shitty, dodgy food factory in town and was treated worse than dog shit by the management and some of the cunt. ugly staff I was teamed with. Being an agency worker there I had no say or rights in making a complaints if I felt aggrieved. The cunt shift manager was a right asshole who sided with the unsavoury staff members I had to team up with during the evening shifts and I felt uncomfortable of having to work with them.

    I am very interested in how institutions work. Especially evil institutions.
    Fast forward to Newsnight last week. The Catholic church offers an apology for the wrongs it sees itself to have done and supported in the sexual abuse scandal.
    A reporter asks What happened to you? to a victim. Victim says she was habitually sexually interfered with by convent nuns when she was 10. And? “When I was older,14,I reported it to my catholic priest” Then what happened,she is asked. “Well the priest he raped me” came forth the answer.
    We don’t want weak weasel worded apologies. We want heads rolling and £££££££££££. COMPO+++ Then the slammer for the rapists,the criminals,the bastards.
    IDS is psychologically raping people. Example set by the church. They really know how to screw people…and the government have learnt from ’em
    10 the nuns used to sexually abuse me

    • Institutions, especially the Church are a form of domination where the former uses its power to cover up it’s activities. No one guards their activities only their own. Why do they want people to believe in God when they don’t. Money.

      Many modern instutution’s for example professional unions do not have complaints systems. People complaining enter a system where their complaint will be forgotten about. They want us to believe there are robust complaints systems to protect the public but it is a sham.

  104. stitchedupandbroken

    I see IDS is about to announce new Work Schemes today making those incapable of work,now fit.
    This should be no surprise. IDS upholds Stephen Hawking as Prime Example. Hawking is disabled,he’s also 70+(or wotever age!) He continues to work! If he can work,YOU CAN WORK. WE WILL MAKE YOU WORK.
    With new anti disability laws that promise zero tolerance on discriminative practice,that will make wheelchair users eligible for scaffolding jobs at 500′ +: IDS’s wet dream. I would suggest that only those laying in a tray of pink liquid and able to move their eyes be entitled to benefits. Even then,wasn’t there some French guy who wrote a book,paralysed,but able to write ‘blinking’.
    I think the idea is to browbeat and bully anyone nto seen as unfit to work into…foregoing benefits. ANY BENEFITS. IDS’s job will then be done. Food Banks are about to multiply. And any rise in criminality? Stealing food? A Mars bar,even? The slammer!! And which of course the government ministers and the judiciary have a steak in: privatised. Nice little earners!! You read it all in the USA which is coming to a place near here soon.

        • The stock market is not the place to put your money if you are like ‘saving’ for a new ‘flat-screen’ TV or something.😀 You would like need nerves of steel😀

    • they cant use gas because its too expensive.. thats why they are doing fracking to reduce to cost so they can (i wish i was joking but it feels like that)

    Duncan Smith says ‘fake claimant’ officials face action

    BBC – 24th Aug 2015

    Iain Duncan Smith has said his officials who used fictional claimants to show the impact of benefit sanctions could face disciplinary action.

    The work and pensions secretary said the made-up stories on the DWP website were meant to help people understand the system and were based on “real life cases”.

    But Mr Duncan Smith stressed that he had not seen them before publication.

    And he told BBC News that the officials “should never have done that”.

    The DWP faced widespread criticism last week when it emerged that two sickness benefit claimants, supposedly called Zac and Sarah and who featured on the department’s website, were not real people.

      Everybody working in the DWP are only following by example. They are all blindly following the rules laid down by Iain Duncan Smith and also following his example to lie and cheat their way to the top of the food chain in DWP towers, and to lie and cheat their scrawny arses through life.

      SHAME ON THEM ALL!

      I don’t believe the cock and bull story that he previously didn’t know about sanctiongate or the dirty, underhand tactics those zombie wankers running the corrupt system putting out dangerous claimant success stories linked to the illegal use of sanctions. Fucking power mad wankers at all levels from bottom to top in a government department well versed in spreading malicious bullshit for the lowest denominator – i.e. lower un-employment levels and increased use of stripping people of their rights to money under EU law.

      Benefits shakeup aims to force more disabled people into jobs

      Government wants radical reform to push 1m more people into work, but disability campaigners fear they are being targeted

      The Guardian – 24th Aug 2015

      Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, is poised to announce a radical reform of sickness benefits that the government hopes will force up to 1m more disabled people into work. Changes to employment and support allowance (ESA) and the assessment of people claiming sickness benefits will be part of a package of announcements expected to be made public on Monday, which aims to shrink the “disability employment gap” by taking many people off benefits and expecting them to move into work. The reforms will anger disability campaigners, who claim that they are being targeted as part of a £12 billion cut in the welfare bill.

      The changes come days after the Department for Work and Pensions admitted it had used made-up stories from fictional claimants to demonstrate the positive impact of benefit sanctions. On Thursday, the DWP is expected to release data for the first time showing how many disability benefit claimants have died after having their benefits cut or stopped.

      In a speech on Monday, Duncan Smith is expected to claim that 2m more people are in work and that the number of workless households is at a record low following previous government reforms. “There is one area on which I believe we haven’t focused on enough – how work is good for your health. Work can help keep people healthy as well as help promote recovery if someone falls ill. So, it is right that we look at how the system supports people who are sick and helps them into work,” he is expected to say.

      “But we must not stop there. We need to be relentless in our efforts to get more people into work and off welfare,” he will say. “The number of disabled people working has risen by 350,000 over the past two years, the highest on record. Yet, even though we have got more disabled people into work, that is only the beginning.” According to a briefing, Duncan Smith will also announce new changes to the Fit For Work service and changes to access to mental health advice for claimants.

      • All those people that were sacked from the DWP will now be placed for two years onto the work programme, having to work as slaves in placements in recycling depots or sweatshops in return for their benefits.

    DWP seeks 2,800 short-term staff weeks after shedding thousands of full-timers

    Union says adverts are for roles similar to those done by 3,824 workers who left two months ago and shows ‘further casualisation’ of department

    The Guardian – 23rd Aug 2015

    The Department for Work and Pensions has been criticised for advertising nearly 3,000 jobs on short-term contracts less than two months after shedding thousands of permanent staff.

    A total of 3,824 permanent staff members across England, Scotland and Wales left under a voluntary exit scheme in late June. On Thursday, the DWP said it was looking to recruit 2,800 people to work on its “reform programmes”.

    Mark Serwotka, the general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services union, which represents public sector workers, said: “It is incredible that less than two months after cutting thousands of low-paid jobs, the DWP is advertising for close to the same amount.

    “Instead of constantly trying to trip up claimants, the DWP should ensure the proper resources are in place to return the department to one where sick, disabled and unemployed people are given the support they need and deserve.”

    A PCS spokesman told the Guardian: “We see this as further casualisation of the workforce, which we are obviously opposed to. We want to see people employed on permanent contracts.”

    According to the union, many of the staff who left in June worked in areas similar to those in which the department is now seeking to hire. It said the work could have been done by the existing staff, “with minimal retraining and setup costs”.

    Its analysis suggested that the first wave of hires would mean a shift in the department’s geographic focus.

    London and central England in particular are recruiting significantly fewer than they lost in June, while many more will be hired in north-west England and in Wales than those who left in those areas.

    A DWP spokesman said: “We are undertaking some big welfare reforms and we’re recruiting fixed term 18-month appointments to cover this period. There have only been a handful of compulsory redundancies over the last four years – with the vast majority of people leaving voluntarily.”

    The news comes as the DWP deals with a row over its use of fake benefits claimants to send out a positive message about its reformed benefits system.

    It used stock images alongside what it admitted in a response to a freedom of information request was invented testimony. The department said they were representative of conversations its staff had had with real people.

      There are loads more people wanting jobs on the WorkFare Programme.

      • THE DWP and JCP freely admit in the sanctiongate that they are breaching JSA client confidentiality rules when it comes to discussing benefit clients case loads and what is said in conversation between JSA client and their work roach to use as the basis for coming up with cock and bull sanction stories.

  124. If I was to lie and give false information when updating my claimant commitment I would be seen as committing fraud and have my JSA case closed down permanently. Yet the bug-eyed lunatic Drunken Shite is committing public fraud right under our noses with sanctiongate and his old eton chum David Camoron is endorsing that bald-headed sack of shit.

    • Fen: Your posts always cheer me up mate when i’m a bit down and despondent. IDS is indeed the biggest wanker of all time. Must be in the running for the most detested person in the UK, if not the world, with his smarmy answers and BS.

      • I must be doing something right on here if I can manage to cheer at least one person up with my rage against the state. I have plenty more venom against the government, especially IBS (IDS) – One Bull Shit. He talks it all of the time so he should have a name that befits him.

        • Your spirit shines through in your posts mate, not to let these evil bastards tear you down. That’s what they want; to keep grinding our spirit and soul down until we end up compliant friggin’ zombies willing to do anything the DWP + JCP scum tell us to.

  125. Don’t worry, the failure to deliver real welfare reforms, and the desperatiob by the private health insurance companies to take over the whole welfare system, is starting to come apart at the seams.

    Desperation is the key word, money is being flushed at an alarming rate and IDS (DUNKO THE CLOWN) is becoming aware that his days are numbered…………

    Can anyone name one thing that this government have been successful at?

    I can’t, everything they have dabbled with is either worse or fucked completely.
    If starving people is the tory answer to welfare reform then they have already failed.

    Reform is mean’t to improve, not destroy.

    The big difference between us and the yanks is that the yanks can spot a litigation case from a mile away. The DWP are easy pickings, like a huge ripe apple waiting to be picked from a lower branch.

    Reading the lists of benefit related deaths would attract the death sentence in any civilised society, but we are far from civilised, perhaps one of the lowest in how we honour human rights legislation.

    The eyes of the world are focused on the shit that is being dealt to us unworthy souls, but the sick dreams of a handful can be eradicated in many ways, that why Corbyn represents an immense threat to the building blocks of hatred.

    Everywhere you look anti Corbyn hysteria, and he has captured the hearts of the Scots through his stance on an alternative to austerity.

    They are in a complete frenzy, like a one legged dog in a lamppost factory, not knowing which way to turn………….

    There ill laid plans are going to come crashing down sooner than later.

    • ……………read in between DUNKO’S false smiles he is on his way out, a complete embarrassment just like wannabee porn queen Esther.

  132. I have committed over 100 Burglaries, stolen so much over the last couple of years just to live, buy food etc since my money was stopped back in Jan 1st 2013 and because of now having to maybe go 10 years with no money and my age 57 years old I am not sure of if I will even get a pension too. So over the next 3 years I have to plan on possible another 100 – 300 plus Burglaries and many other crimes to have a fall back plan of around £20,000 – £30,000 to last me in my pension years. IF and only IF I do get pension money I will give away all I have taking to homeless and people who have been sanctions.
