To The Fucking Streets – Protesters Bring Traffic To A Standstill In Spontaneous Housing March

rich-graveyard

Whitehall was briefly blockaded and a smoke bomb let off outside Downing Street today as over 100 people took to the streets in protest at the Housing Bill being debated in Parliament.

The new laws, which will mean mass social housing sell offs, vicious rent hikes for families on even modest incomes and the scrapping of lifetime tenancies have been called the end of genuinely affordable housing in the UK.  Tenants, housing workers and campaigners have vowed to fight the bill which will lead to growing numbers of people living their entire lives without ever knowing what it is like to have a secure home.

Today’s protests began early this morning when the vile Policy Exchange and Localis were evicted by housing activists who blockaded their offices preventing staff from entering.  These two so-called think tanks – both stuffed with chinless fucking Tarquins – were responsible for proposing several of the measures in the housing bill.

Later in the day over 200 people gathered outside Parliament in a protest that was well-attended despite coming so soon in the new year.  After an hour or so of speeches many of those present occupied the road and then began a spontaneous march through the streets of central London accompanied by a sound system.  As police scurried to keep up traffic was brought to a standstill by the boisterous crowd who defied attempts to herd them off the streets and onto the pavement.

A place to live and sleep is the most basic human need and now the bastards even want that.  The time for politeness and asking for permission to protest is long over.  Disobedience, disruption and disorder are all that governments understand – and for all their bluster they are fucking terrified of it.  So that is what it will take to smash this new bill and every other attack on our homes.  Anything else is just consent to carry on as usual.  Don’t consent.  Fuck shit up.

    • social housing was bought and paid for by the people, it belongs to the state and those working for the state cannot sell it off – if anything it should be given to the families who are unemployed (not unemployable) for the way both New labour and Tory have fucked up and robbed the country.

    It’s time to put up or shut up. Social /affordable housing are being stolen from right under our fucking noses by twat faced Cameron. People died in two world wars for the basic human right to live in an affordable home (homes for heroes) rather than stuck in a high rent slum. So enough is enough as if we do nothing the Tories will leave people with fucking nothing but a double kick in the balls – homelessness and dire poverty. Remember, we are many and they are the few!

    • paultheswineherd

      Santa Hates You, Gringley Borstal, No Oppression & Stepping Razor – you are all right – what a disgraceful reflection upon British society today. We are now in a situation where an unelected Tory Toff Government has declared an all out war on the sick, the disabled, the poor, the underpriveleged and the low-paid. Their intent is to ‘get rid of the poor’ as soon as possible and it seems by whatever means possible.
      This is shameful, when it has been announced that today, on ‘Fat Cat’ Tuesday, some Chief Company Executives have ‘earned’ more in one day than a worker on an ‘average’ salary of about £27,500 could earn in a whole year. (Very many people in Britain are earning much less than this ‘average’ salary). Some FTSE top executives are also receiving £4 million or so bonus – all at a time when the poor, the low-paid, the underpriveleged and the sick and disabled are being slowly starved and tortured by this uncaring Nazi Tory Government – I really feel ashamed to be British now.
      What the fuck is going to happen next I ask myself!

      • paultheswineherd

        Whilst talking about ‘Toffs in Government’ – I’ve just seen a report on Sky News (with regard to the proposed in/out E.U. referendum). Cameron & his ‘ministerial team’ (including IDS) was sitting around a large table, all looking very priveleged, rich and smug with ‘I know everything about everything’ written across all of their respective their faces.
        When it comes to the truth – they generally know little or nothing at all about their various prospective briefs that they’ve been given.
        A pompous set of unelected simpletons led at the helm by an alleged pig fucker – who could really ask for more from a current British Government in office!

        • Pity the alleged pig-fucking incident was way back in the day before everybody carried a moby fone🙂 If anyone has a pic of this alleged incident it will be worth a fucking fortune🙂

          Katie Davidson, flanked by her mother Morag and partner Martin Laird, is appealing against her benefits being stopped but fears the process may take at least six months
          Katie Davidson, flanked by her mother Morag and partner Martin Laird, is appealing against her benefits being stopped but fears the process may take at least six months
          DWP refuses to reinstate benefits of disabled woman forced to turn to food banks

          A YOUNG disabled woman who has been forced to turn to food banks and crisis loans to survive after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) slashed her benefits and stopped her partner’s Carer’s Allowance has failed in her first bid to get the decision overturned.

          Katie Davidson, 21, suffers from a range of mental and physical disabilities including autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, joint hypermobility syndrome, which causes her a lot of pain and restricted movement, panic attacks, depression and anxiety.

          For the past two years she has been receiving £82.20 a week on the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) enhanced care rate as well as the standard mobility payment of £21.80 a week.

          Her partner and full-time carer Martin Laird, 23, was also in receipt of £62.10 a week in Carer’s Allowance because she needs round-the-clock care.

          However, after a DWP assessment, Katie got a letter saying that her PIP enhanced care payment had been stopped and her partner would no longer get Carer’s Allowance to look after her, which means the couple are struggling to make ends meet on £87 a month. The DWP said the reason for Katie’s benefit cuts was that she told the assessor she was able to carry out eight out of the 10 criteria and only had problems preparing food and engaging with people face-to-face.

          However, both Katie and Martin say this is not true and they did not say this to the assessor.

          GEOFF, according to Wikipedia joint hypermobiliy is what is colloquially referred to as “double-jointedness”. i.e your joints click lol It is NOT a crippling disorder. As to rest of this young ladies maladies it is just the usual nonsense of “depression”, “anxiety”, “panics disorders”. As to this “carer” we all know what is going on here…😉 “round the clock care” – but we all know what sort of “care”…😉 In short, it is all a load of nonsense. It is all a scam, GEOFF. That is why these scammers are being booted off these premium benefits.

          “Katie’s benefit cuts was that she told the assessor she was able to carry out eight out of the 10 criteria and only had problems preparing food and engaging with people face-to-face.

A lot of people are shy and how many people actually cook from scratch these days anyway. Lots of people don’t even have a cooker. So, having a dislike to chopping vegetables and being shy entities this young lady and her scammer super-shagger…. er “carer” to steal out of the public purse? The worker bees of Britain are sick to the back teeth of this crap!

          • Joint hyper mobility is NOT being double jointed. And scanning a few pages from the web doesn’t make you an expert – in this case you have visibly demonstrated that you are s prat. I say this as one with JHS. It is a problem with all connective tissue in the body. Some may be able to twist around. For those on the further end on the spectrum it affects the connective tissue in the heart that makes it beat. It affects connective tissue in the lungs that is needed to breathe in &out. It affects the connecting tissue that holds othe bones if the spine together. I can dislocated parts of my spine if I move in a particular way. Knees dislocated unpredictable, even when walking. It leaves joints damaged and painful. Joints can suddenly move into a locked and painful position as cartilage misbehaves. Please don’t be a prat, just STFU about stuff you don’t know about. (Or would that rob you of your entire repertiore?)

    Seemingly it’s now become standard practice for the DWP to withhold payment of benefit for any reason they deem appropriate and without any warning to the claimant. All benefit recipients are now regarded as guilty until they can prove themselves innocent. Unemployment is now treated as a criminal act.

    The DWP culture is now ‘negative parent contaminated’ (to use a term from Transactional Analysis), meaning that all claimants are treated permanently like naughty children by a parent who delights in dishing out punishment for even the slightest error.

    If any enterprise or organisation used the same techniques with its staff, it would fail utterly due to the demotivating and demoralising effects it would have on them. All enlightened business leaders know this. Similarly, and unsurprisingly, this brutal bullying system is having a devastating effect on the unemployed by providing a state of permanent instability and a feeling of not knowing if you’re are going to be able survive from one day to the next. Not only is this evil and backwards but it’s also counterproductive. Trying to focus on worksearch under such conditions is almost impossible with performance affected by being placed under a condition of permanent stress with many outcomes being an unsurprising deterioration in wellbeing instead of being able to focus on finding worthwhile employment. Once basic income is stopped, for whatever reason, then worksearch becomes impossible by sheer virtue of the fact that one is then obliged to take steps to merely survive – if this isn’t a definition of madness then I don’t know what is?

    In no other sphere of life is such a system acceptable. And all this new culture driven by the simple minded beliefs of a man who simply doesn’t possess even the basic skills of good leadership and he has a track record to prove it – IDS a failure, a henchman and a bully. History will judge you IDS, the Sir Henry Simmerson of British Politics.

  46. Double amputee fights for payout as insurers say he is ‘not permanently disabled

    A FORMER mechanic who lost both of his legs in a motorsport event has been told he is not disabled enough to get a full insurance payout.

    Gerry McPeake, 32, was competing for the first time in the Scotia Winch 4×4 Challenge at Griffin Forest, near Aberfeldy in Perthshire, in June when he almost died in an incident which destroyed his legs and mangled his right hand.

    “The insurance company said they would pay out on the loss of limbs but they won’t pay out on permanently disabled because I’m not disabled enough for them.

    “According to them I’m not permanently disabled even though I’ve lost both my legs. They argue that I will be able to do some form of work so even if you can answer a phone or press a button you are not disabled.

    “Basically, you have to be a vegetable to get the full payout. We have not settled the payout yet. None of this is about money, it is about making people accountable for what happened and making sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else.

    An old age pensioner is expected to live for a year on a pension of some £7k a year. Simon Hart MP gets over 4 times this amount for his job with the CountrySide Alliance. This of course is on top of his not inconsiderable MP salary and generous expenses account. He also receives funds to run his Office which employed his wife.
    I am staggered that Mr Hart sees fit to Criticise this story in the Western Telegraph and claims that he has won two general elections.
    That may be so, but I would question if everyone that voted for him would have done so if they were fully aware of this ‘extra’ income that he gets and also of the full amount that he received from others, in support of his general election campaign that allowed the countryside to be plastered with his election posters.
    See the theyworkforyou website for full details.
    I believe that many people who voted Conservative at the last election now rue having done so, perhaps next time they can kick Mr Hart out and he can go back to working full time for The CountrySide Alliance.

  54. Iain Duncan Smith ‘should be sanctioned’ for refusing to speak in welfare cuts debate

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/iain-duncan-smith-should-sanctioned-7129648

    • Yet one of Mr Duncan Smith’s ministers claimed the cuts won’t hurt Britain’s poorest people – because they’re saving £10 on filling their cars.

      Shailesh Vara made his “car crash” remarks despite the fact many on the all-in-one benefit can’t afford to drive.

      Speaking alongside Mr Duncan Smith, he told MPs: “There’s a broader perspective [of] the raising of personal allowances, the introduction of the new living wage, the doubling of free childcare to 30 hours, tax free childcare from early 2017.

      “And don’t forget that every time you fill up your tank with petrol there’s a saving of £10 because of the freezing of fuel duty.

      “So it’s important to consider everything in a broader perspective, not the narrow perspective that we’ve seen from so many of the people opposite.”

      sian – Thank you for putting this on here.
      Iain Duncan Smith – AKA ‘DUNKO THE MURDERING CLOWN’ – really needs to be prosecuted in a proper (and not a bent Judiciary) Court of Law for the reckless and totally unnecessary murder of claimants under his ‘duty of care’. IF THIS HAPPENED IN THE NHS HE WOULD HAVE TO ANSWER FOR IT.
      He is at the head of the DWP – he gives the ‘orders’ to his DWP. He and he alone (as the Secretary of State for Works & Pensions) in law is responsible for these deaths.

  55. When 100,000 citizens march in protest about the paring down to the bone of the welfare state, and the march takes place in a city of 11,000,000; then maybe the Guv will listen. Even then that’s only one percent of the capital’s population; but it won’t happen, and it won’t happen due entirely to the undisputable fact that we are a nation of selfish bastards. And you, you barrack room lawyer/ armchair General bastards, and you know who I’m talking about, OBD, Maria, Raining, Stepping Sound Plate System, Flytehawks et al; You whining bunch of takers should stop whingeing like fuck and milking the cow but crucially never feeding it – And go out there and look for some fucking work!!!

    The ‘Labour’ Party – now riven with division and backbiting hatred – the two sides – the Corbynites and the Blairites – are now each fighting for their own corner in a two-sided fight, headed by Jeremy Corbyn (on the Left) and Hilary Benn (on the Right). As was originally reported, Tony Benn would be turning in his grave as to what his ‘son’ has done. He (Hilary) after all, voted with many of the other ‘Labour MP’s’ (with Cameron and his MP’s) for the ‘bombing of Syria by the Royal Air Force’.
    Meanwhile, Cameron is cock-a-hoop as to what has now happened – it is now not an ‘official opposition’. Labour is now a laughing stock and unless they really get their act together,and bring back ‘REAL’ Labour values, then we are sunk. We will face another 5 years of the Tory Toffs in ‘POWER’ – with their idealogical and continuing relentless attacks upon the poor, the low-paid, the sick and the disabled. I was hoping that the SNP – the original real hope of an ‘opposition’ as such would take to the benches and stand up to the Tories – but, alas, I am afraid that this will now not occur.
    It seems that the SNP have ‘abstained’ over the ‘Housing Act’ – letting Cameron and his unelected administration hold sway and let through the idea of ‘new Council Tenants’ having no security of tenancy.
    Shame on the ‘Labour’ Party. Shame on the SNP – but most of all, shame on Cameron and his Tory Toff Millionaire Government – (ably abetted also by The Speaker of The House of Commons, John Bercow) his own miserable and drunken, expense driven M.P.’s driving down on the people in Britain who least deserve it. The whole lot of them are nothing but a bunch of fucking rich and uncaring Nazi bastards.

    • Would have loved it if he’d shown that big Tory Hilary Benn the door. If ever anyone deserved it it was him. Standing up there in the HOC and the Tory bastards all cheering him. What a disgraceful individual to even be a Labour MP.

      Not only that, they have made us an massively bigger target for nothing! Zilch, zero. Because it was looked at recently and straight after the vote the aircraft went and bombed and since then there had been no more bombings. This go’s to prove once again it was all about flag waving and the UK showing the big boys that ‘we’re a real world force on the big stage’.

      Of course all at the expense of making us a juicy target for every nutter with an axe to grind.

      Congratulations Labour party you have officially sunk lower than anyone would have thought possible.

      • paultheswineherd

        Raining – yes, unfortunately Corbyn did not have the guts to sack him completely – perhaps he thought that if he did, Hilary Benn could cause him even more problems. Corbyn, after all in the ‘Labour’ HOC is in a real minority – he wants to keep as many people as possible on board. I still forecast though that they will eventually oust Corbyn as the Labour leader by the end of April 2016. The Blairites will prevai,l I am sure!

      • “THE MINNESOTA EXPERIMENT, THE RATIONALE FOR THE DWP’S USE OF SANCTIONS TO BREAK MORALE”

        During WWII, conscientious objectors who refused to be drafted into the military were put in something called the Civilian Public Service and assigned to work camps to do “work of national importance.” The work ranged from fighting forest fires to being attendants in mental institutions.

        Conscientious objectors also were given the opportunity to be “guinea pigs” in medical experiments studying conditions such as malaria, typhus and pneumonia.

        The experiment began Nov. 19, 1944. The 36 volunteers, with an average age of 25, were housed and tested in windowless rooms in Keys’ laboratory under the bleachers at Memorial Stadium.

        First, there was a three-month control period when the men received a normal diet of about 3,200 calories a day while researchers tested their strength, endurance, dexterity, hearing, sight, intelligence, personalities and even the potency of their semen.

        The tests continued when the six-month semi-starvation period began. But now, the calories were cut almost in half.

        In addition to part-time work, the men were required to walk 22 miles a week.

        The men eventually would would lose about 25 percent of their weight, dropping from an average of about 153 pounds to about 116 pounds.

        Their hair fell out. Their skin roughened. Their hearts shrank in size, and their pulse rates dropped. They constantly felt cold. They found it uncomfortable to sit on hard surfaces. Some men collapsed during treadmill endurance tests.

        The complete results of the study were documented in 1950 in a two-volume, 1,385-page work titled “The Biology of Human Starvation.”

        ……………One man wrote;

        I have been more depressed than ever in my life. . .I thought that there was only one thing that would pull me out of the doldrums, that is release from C.P.S. [the experiment] I decided to get rid of some fingers. Ten days ago, I jacked up my car and let the car fall on these fingers. . .It was premeditated.

        Several days latter, this man actually did chop off three fingers with an axe, on one hand in response to the stress.

        Standardized personality testing with the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) revealed that semistarvation resulted in significant increases on the Depression, Hysteria, and Hpochondriasis scales. The MMPI profiles for a small minority of subjects confirmed the clinical impression of incredible deterioration as a result of semistarvation. One man who scored well within normal limits at initial testing, but after 10 weeks of semistarvation and a weight loss of only about 4.5 kg (10 pounds, or approximately 7% of his original body weight), gross personality disturbances were evident on the MMPI. Depression and general disorganization were particularly striking consequences of starvation for several of the men who became the most emotionally disturbed.

    ephemerid elcantwell
    27m ago

    That’s precisely what it is – an American system – if you follow the money, it’s very instructive.

    When John Major was PM, Peter Lilley brought in Unum to consult on sickness benefits, despite Unum’s reputation in the US as disability deniers. He wanted to bring sickness benefits into line with private insurance models.
    The then head of DWP, Mansel Aylward, left DWP and was employed by Unum to run a “research” centre at Cardiff University which is funded by Unum; this “research” is used by DWP to justify its’ policies.
    Aylward’s successor worked for Atos and now works for a subsidiary of Maximus in charge of the governments’ Health and Work Service which contacts people at home if they are off sick from work, and judges them fit to return irrespective of what their doctors say.

    Unum owns LIMA (Logic Integrated Medical Assessment) which it leased to Atos. Atos were appointed by James Purnell under Labour to conduct the Work Capability Assessment based on Unum “research”. Despite the problems identified by the governments’ independent expert Professor Harrington, his advice was ignored and the WCA continued – the only changes that were made actually made it worse. The good professor resigned.

    The head of medical services at Unum in the UK, Michael O’Donnell, went to work for Atos and he now works for Maximus (after removing all his Atos connections from his LinkedIn profile).
    Maximus leases the LIMA software from Atos, who are paid £10 Million a year to supply IT services to Maximus, who are paid more than double what Atos were being paid for the WCA.

    Atos and Maximus use “Health Care Professionals” who have a “registerable” qualification – ie. they hold qualifications that can be registered in the UK but which are not necessarily currently recognised by our statutory bodies. They get in-house training on how to use the LIMA system; in some cases just a few days’-worth.
    Many of the ex-Atos staff now work for Maximus.

    It is corrupt as well as being incompetent and cruel.

    So while the vile Tory government does its damnedest to divide public opinion between the working poor and the workless poor, we find under these fraudulent private companies now under the guise of work programme failures Maximus are after all costing more to the sceptical taxpayer than actually saving in the long term due to more of a nasty ideology rather than a hand of welfare to help disability claimants. No change there then (excuse none intended pun). Is it any wonder that these vile and nasty Tories have tried their best to hide and legislate against the freedom of information, when it as found that there have been countless suicides and other death related illnesses due to these work capability assessments, and was it not so long ago that the UN were due to investigate under the European rights act (another act the Tories would like to cease) of the unnecessary need to put countless disabled people under duress, and make matters worse under ATOS, they were not even qualified medical practitioners the bulk of them being therapists. Now we learn under the guise of Maximus over only half of nurses and doctors have qualified to carry out these assessments which in turn as risen from £115 per each assessment to £190. I have said many times that without the actual disabled community being driven to death camps and sent to gas chambers, the Tory b******s are no different to the disabled than what Hitlers evil Nazis were, end of!!!

    Demands for UK probe into ‘civilian deaths’ in Iraq air strikes
    January 8th, 2016 – 12:28 am Michael Gray

    THE UK Government is facing calls to launch an immediate investigation into reports of between 72 and 81 civilian deaths linked to British air strikes in Iraq.

    Reports identifying eight separate incidents of civilian casualties in the bombing campaign have been raised by the independent monitoring group AirWars, which is calling for the Government to take action and investigate the evidence.

    Since the UK voted to join the bloody civil war in Syria, on top of over a year of air strikes in Iraq, AirWars has identified eight incident reports of civilian casualties in the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Ramadi. The UK military has already confirmed that British air strikes took place on the same dates and in the same locations as the reported civilian casualties, although they claim there have been “no reports from Iraq or Syria of civilian casualties as a result of the UK air campaign”.

    Director of AirWars Chris Woods, an expert in conflict issues and a former BBC journalist, argues there is a need for the Government to investigate these reports to identify the consequences of UK military action.

    “Eight reported incidents took place in December in Ramadi and Mosul, in which alleged coalition and possibly British strikes may have killed a total of 72 to 81 civilians,” Woods said.

    The eight casualty reports, which are compiled through a forensic methodology of credible media and eyewitness sources, are broken down into more specific categories.

    Reuters news agency reported that “at least 12 civilians” were killed in an airstrike in Mosul on the 21st of December 2015. AirWars back this report up with a further seven Arabic news sources and eleven images connected to the strike.

    Among the dead was Abdul Khaliq Ghanem Sabawi, who was killed with his wife, daughter and aunt in the strike, according to NRN News.

    The UK military confirms that “Typhoon FGR4s and an RAF Reaper operated around the Mosul area” on December 21st, which included dropping a “Paveway IV bomb” and further “targeted support” in an airstrike.

    This incident, alongside three others, is judged by AirWars to have the strongest evidence base to link coalition air strikes to civilian casualties – described by military sources as “collateral damage”

  120. Disabled Tories launch investigation into impact of ILF closure
    BY JOHN PRING ON JANUARY 8, 2016

    http://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/disabled-tories-launch-investigation-into-impact-of-ilf-closure/

    …Meanwhile, the Welsh government has confirmed, in an email to a former ILF-user, that it has allocated £27 million for 2016-17 to a fund it set up as a result of ILF’s closure.

    The Welsh independent living grant (WILG) funding will ensure that former ILF-users continue to receive their existing level of financial support for social care until at least March 2017.

    In the email sent to campaigner and former ILF-user Nathan Lee Davies, the first minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, said the Welsh Labour government’s draft budget for 2016-17 “contains £27 million to enable the WILG to continue to March 2017 as planned”.

    He added: “I understand that the minister for health and social services will shortly be engaging with representatives of stakeholders to identify the best way of providing support in future.

    “This will be in the light of the public consultation held earlier this year. This is to ensure that future arrangements are in place for when the current grant concludes in 2017.”

    Davies said on his blog that this response was “the best Christmas gift I could have asked for as now I have it in writing that WILG will continue to March 2017 as planned”.

    He added: “I must keep my eye on the ball and continue to fight to secure long-term assurances for disabled people, but I can now forge forward with hope in my heart.”

    A Welsh government spokesman said: “The UK government’s decision to close the ILF caused anxiety among those who receive support, and their carers.

    “The Welsh grant scheme to replace the ILF came into operation on 1 July 2015. It allows local authorities to pay existing recipients their current level of funding.

    “The actions the Welsh government has taken to ensure this important source of funding continues to be delivered by our local authorities means people who currently receive ILF payments will still be able to get direct payments to sustain their levels of care and support under a new made-in-Wales process.”

    The Scottish government has set up its own Independent Living Fund, for both existing and new users in Scotland.

    Mortality figures for each individual company will be easy to deduce, but the primary killer may have moved between jobs, annihilating clients for more than one employer.

    With this in mind, MAXIMUS have raised the stakes by by increasing the wages of sin to buy the best assassins from it’s rivals.

    The best killers come at a premium but poching from such as ATOS and CAPITA is rather unfair as the assassins owe some kind of allegiance to those that showed them the tricks of the dirty trade…………..

    With this in mind, the assassins are creating a demand for their skills with the British taxpayer blindly paying for disability killings.

    To the DWP the actions of ATOS, CAPITA and MAXIMUS are some kind of a self fulfilling Euthanasia circle.

    People work, pay tax, fall ill. and then the DWP use the money they generated in taxes to murder them……………..

    What a lovely method of putting tinsel on an extreme case of CORPORATE MANSLAUGHTER.

    Hi Judith,

    We won’t have a comment for you regarding your question about representatives
    from the UN visiting the UK as all United Nations inquiry processes are confidential.

    Please see our comment below:

    A Department for Work and Pensions spokesman:
    “Suicide is a sensitive and complex issue and it is irresponsible to link it to our
    welfare reforms.

    “We are committed to protecting the most vulnerable in society and spend more than
    £50 billion every year on disabled people and their services.”

    • …………..AND ANOTHER CHRISTMAS CRACKER JOKE FROM THE DEPARTMENT THAT KILLS AT WILL, THE DWP.

      DWP spokesman said:

      “We strongly reject the allegations made by DPAC. The UK has a proud record of furthering
      the rights of disabled people, with the principles of the UN Convention at the heart of its
      approach.

      “Suicide is a tragic and complex issue. The reality is that the mortality rate for people who
      have died while claiming an out-of-work benefit has fallen over a 10-year period. This is in
      line with the mortality rate for the general working-age population.

      “Fol owing reforms to the work capability assessment, which was introduced in 2008, people
      are getting more tailored support to return to work instead of being written off on long-term
      sickness benefits as happened too often in the past.”

      • @geoff

        But why does the Dwp seek to hide the mortality statistics that been requested time after time.
        The whole of the U.K. knows that they are guilty of murder, so does the U.N.
        You cannot hide thousands and thousands of deaths, especially those found fit for work like the lady who died this week.

        In England and Wales, as in many other places, an injunction can be used as a gag order, in which certain details of a legal case, including identities or actions, may not be published. These were originally created to protect people whose lives might be at risk if their details were made public, such as child offenders. However, with the passing of the Human Rights Act 1998, which wrote the European Convention on Human Rights into UK law, judges began to use a passage of the Act to extend the powers of these legal rights to cover the right to privacy.[2][3] An injunction whose existence and details may not be published, in addition to the facts or allegations injuncted, became informally known as a “super-injunction”

    The vast majority of hospitals in England are struggling to recruit enough nurses, figures show.

    Some 92% of the 225 acute hospital trusts in England did not manage to run wards with their planned number of nurses during the day in August.

    The figures, published by the NHS, show that hospitals in England are falling short of their own targets for levels of safe staffing.

    The Department of Health said staffing was a priority.

  139. Since yesterday, I have been trying to post a reply to the Framework statement, in the Notts Post.

    But, it keeps getting censored out, and removed. They are just showing the last 500 chars. So, I will post it here, so that the public can read the uncensored posting.

    In reply to the article from RoughSleepers:

    I don’t know how this will display, as we are not allowed the same editing, and paragraph spacing, as the charities are allowed. But, here goes.

    As you and the ‘RoughSleepers’ say, it is not a protest. They are doing something that no ‘charity’ that lives, and makes money for salaries, on our back, is doing for us. They are bringing our cases to the world, instead of keeping us in place to make more money.

    Tarnishing us to the public, with comments out of sides of your mouth, such as: “it is frequently associated with mental health problems, alcohol & substance misuse, domestic violence and other complications”, only serves to keep us unlistened to, for your own benefit.

    I have certainly done more hours at this subject than you, suffer none of your allegations, and know that, although there are those that behave in the manner that you describe, this is false ‘Charity’ propaganda in general. In this time, I have tested most charities, including yours, and recorded the results for a future publication.

    We are being abused, for others gain. The only solution, would be the termination of all such charities that are making a good living on our backs, and the appointment of a gov org, whose purpose, and interests, was to reduce our numbers, not inflate our numbers, for more grants, awards, donations, bequeathments, at the cost of our lives.

    “There is already bed space for every legitimate Nottingham homeless person”.

    This is typical playing with words again.

    ‘Homeless’ & ‘RoughSleepers’, are not the same thing!

    A ‘Homeless’ charity collects money for the ‘Homeless’.

    A ‘RoughSleeping’ charity collects money for the ‘RoughSleepers’.

    There is a world of difference, in meaning, and hardship, of ‘Homeless’ & ‘RoughSleeping’.

    99.02% of ‘Homeless’ sleep in a house already.
    00.08% of ‘Homeless’ sleep outdoors.

    If you are F&F of some of these charities, you will know that to claim Homeless, you only have to claim that you slept on your wife’s/parents/friends settee for one night, and are now eligible for all kinds of freebies, including having a get out of worksearch obligations, council tax, free food from the F&F ‘charities’. Not all ‘Homeless’ are genuine, many are on this bandwagon.

    Most ‘Homeless’, get benefits, and foodbank food. Many F&F chose this life for symbiotic advantage from the swarm of phoney ‘Homeless’ charities to support them.

    So, obviously, it is easier to help the ‘Homeless’.

    The word ‘Homeless’ has been abused to make money, both sides, and has now lost all respect.

    100% of ‘RoughSleepers’ sleep outdoors.

    Many ‘RoughSleepers’, get no benefits, and are not allowed foodbank food, don’t have money to spend, etc, there is very little support for this group.

    So, obviously, it is more difficult to help the ‘RoughSleepers’.

    Many ‘charities’ describe, in their Xmas news-adverts, the hardship, and early death, of ‘RoughSleeping’, to get emotional response, and money, from the public, and then slip-in the numbers, and statistic juggling, of ‘Homeless’, and hope that you didn’t notice their quick switch, and slight of hand.

    For every 1 ‘RoughSleeper’, there are 1200 symbiotic ‘Homeless’ in a house that they claim that they are not happy with.

    This is numbers bulking.

    ‘RoughSleeping’ is a totally different hardship than ‘Homeless’, but will get none of the freebies available to F&F of ‘charities’.

    ‘RoughSleepers’, are the ones that would benefit more than the ‘Homeless’ from the food, especially the ones that can’t claim benefits & food.

    We will never get a solution, while-ever it is an advantage to bulk up the numbers, and keep us, the small number, here.

    We get left on the streets to make more emotion & money from the public, and our deaths there, are an added bonus, for more of both.

    ‘RoughSleepers’ want more in life than to be: “‘Signposted’ to somewhere else”, pay, daily, for a ‘charity’ run, ‘kip’ in a dirty, bug ridden,’dosshouse’, overnight, and kicked out, into the weather, in the morning. And kept in this status quo to ensure an income for a ‘charity’.

    ‘RoughSleepers’ want their lives back.

    ‘RoughSleepers’ want their homes back.

    To the public, I would advise:

    Before, giving money to any ‘charity’ that claims to do something for us, and asks for your money, walk up to any ‘RoughSleeper’, in any town, in any county, and ask a very simple question:

    “Has this ‘charity’ ‘ever’ helped you, or any other RoughSleeper that you know, or given you, or them, anything to eat, any day, any week, any year, any decade”.

    From this answer, make an informed decision of whether to give to this ‘charity’, or to give food direct to the needy.

    No money!

    This sorts out both sides that sponge on backs.

    The trickle down to the poor theory, from ‘charities’ that make lots of Xmas salary money on our backs, does not work.

    Get rid of the money, get rid of the fraud on our backs, and next year they will be more honest, or gone, because you have hit their pockets.

    At this time of year, the truth matters more than PC, for peoples lives.

    Thankyou on behalf of all genuine ‘RoughSleepers’.

    I,too,wonder where investigative journalism is when we know there are thousands who have topped themselves because of DWPs contracted killers. Stymied? Or the media and BBC representatives all quaffing at the same Islington champagne parties,sons at public schools.
    We then have superinjunctions. What happened to them? Or has the DWP taken one out over imposed disabled cullings?
    For sure it is all unreported.
    I am interested in reading some investigations/prosecutions might happen into those that participated in the Iraq/Afghan wars. This will terrorize the saps. Of course,if you’ve come back a hero in a coffin you will be excused. Legless? You have IDS as your supporting captain. You can be sure the higher orders wont be going to the slammer,beneath seargant major watch out! But is it all a shame? We’ve got our famous (in)famous judicial system to go thru to achieve ‘justice’! That’s dough in the pocket for judge X and solictors X,Y and Z. Who profits? Never the saps!
    Respect for GB in its control of the media and to the Top Table! You just have to salute their chutzpah at the feeding trough. The country seems to be progressing back to the Middle Ages and feudalism,back to Master/servant times.

    • “HOW EMBARRASSING?”

      “Please provide me statistics showing the number of people who have died whilst their
      claim for social security benefits is processed by decision makers.

      You recently published statistics showing the number of benefit claimants who sadly
      died after there benefits claim was closed, whilst declaring: “It’s irresponsible to
      suggest a causal link between the death of an individual and their benefit claim”.

      However, it remains unclear as to how many people have passed away whilst waiting
      for their claim to be reviewed and processed – otherwise known as the ‘assessment
      phase’ for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).

      This, in itself, is a matter of public interest. Because it possibly draws into question the
      speed at which claims are fully processed and full benefits awarded – particularly for
      terminally ill claimants.

      Please also provide data showing the waiting times for ESA claims to be processed,
      including an average, with particular attention paid to claims made by terminally ill

    With respect,and without condoning violence(for I would expect this site to be monitored)without violent acts being carried out against those who terrorize those they themselves terrorize and govern,nothing will change. You think most changes come through dialogue? Not really. Your adversary has to be prompted by retribution or fear,that’s how it workd folks. The present culling of innocents is due to go on for a long time. And the culling is working. It goes(for the most part)uncovered and unacknowledged. The powers that be have it worked out and Himmler would be jealous. Granny footsteps to the gas chamber for those unable/less able to support their claims. Advanced Darwinism. I should really like the Iron Cross made and distributed to the most calculating and evil representative in GB today. Don’t they present some Brown Nose Oscar to the worst made film every year. An Iron Cross should be awarded for some of this country’s killers. One to politician and one to a judge. For group killings? The Waffen DWP?

    • Revealed: British government refusing to accept evidence of civilian fatalities in UK air strikes

      (BBC INSTRUCTED TO LOOK AWAY)

      THE British government is refusing to accept evidence of civilian fatalities in UK air strikes from human rights groups monitoring the results of bombing raids on the ground in Syria and Iraq.

      The Ministry of Defence told the Sunday Herald that it will not investigate reports of deaths on the ground in Syria and Iraq – from anyone but UK military personnel, and ‘local forces’ deemed friendly.

      The UK Government is being urged to launch an immediate investigation after independent monitoring group Airwars reported between 72 and 81 civilian deaths in Iraq could be linked to British air strikes.

      In the wake of the report, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) insisted there had been “no reports” from Iraq or Syria of civilian casualties as a result of the UK air campaign.

      The MoD insisted it would not consider reports from independent monitoring groups, such as Airwars, which collates information from sources including media reports and civilians on the ground in affected areas.

      The MoD claims it relies only on evidence from its own internal surveillance – through aerial assessments or information from evaluations carried out by what it calls ‘local forces’. A spokeswoman refused to comment further on what it meant by ‘local forces.

      Chris Woods, director of Airwars, which describes itself as a not-for-profit transparency project, said he was “shocked” by the admission by the MoD that it ruled out reports by human rights monitoring organisations.

    …………as the trail of dead bodies stack up

    He added: “It is the old cliché – in war truth is the first casualty. When a respected organisation says there are civilian casualties and the government says there are not, who do you believe? The truth probably lies somewhere in between, but at the very least the claims should be investigated.

    “This idea the government is trying to sell the UK airstrikes in Syria as ‘civilian casualty free’ – we didn’t accept it at the time and we certainly don’t accept it now.”

    • “FUCKING PIFFLE”

      A spokeswoman for the MoD said: “There have been no reports from Iraq or Syria of civilian casualties as a result of the UK air campaign – our overriding concern is to protect civilians from the terrorists we are targeting and we take every possible measure to avoid causing harm to innocent people.”

    And finally – Cameron’s council estate ‘ideas’ are patronising and ill-informed (Stefano Hatfield – The Independent) and Jeremy Hunt is saying that it is the junior doctors that have caused the present ‘strike threat’ problems (of course, he is totally blameless!). As the threat of the first strike grows, they are expecting the Tory ‘spin’ machine to go into overdrive to try to protect Hunt.

And then out of the papers will pop these people,the I-have-it-all-and-I’m-gonna-have-more b/stards. Your hatred will grow as you get royally shafted. To have them out of office is not enough for me,I am sorry to say. There should be laws for/against corruptive/corrosive practice by implication leading to others demise/suffering/death.

      Proposed government cuts could see cancer sufferers struggle to pay the mortgage
      January 11th, 2016 – 12:28 am Janice Burns

      A LEADING charity has warned that Scottish cancer patients could be at risk of homelessness under the UK Government’s plans to slash benefits.

      Disturbing new research, commissioned by Macmillan Cancer Support, has revealed cancer victims could lose their homes if proposed government cuts to Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) go ahead.

      A survey of nearly 1,000 people living with cancer in Britain found that one in 10 would struggle or be unable to pay their rent or mortgage if they lost £30 a week.

      This is the amount the Government is proposing to cut in 2017 from those who receive the work related activity element of ESA benefit, a group of people assessed as currently too ill to work, but capable of returning to work at some time in the future.

      While Macmillan’s research shows 10 per cent of cancer patients could face homelessness if they lost £30 a week, the risk is drastically higher for those in receipt of ESA.

      Of the 78 people in the survey who received this benefit, more than one in three (36 per cent) said they would be unable or would struggle to pay their rent or mortgage if the benefit was cut by £30 a week, almost a third of the entire benefit.

      Now Macmillan Cancer Support is calling on the Government to remove the proposed £30 a week cut to ESA work related activity group (Wrag) from the Welfare Reform and Work Bill.

      http://www.thenational.scot/news/proposed-government-cuts-could-see-cancer-sufferers-struggle-to-pay-the-mortgage.12163

      • “THE UN INSPECTORS SHOULD BE KICKING THE WESTMINSTER DOORS IN”

        One cancer sufferer from Edinburgh, Lynn Laing, 55, received the work related activity element of ESA after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010.

        She had a mastectomy and then went through chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment during which time she was signed off sick from her job as a receptionist in a doctor’s surgery.

        Mum-of-one Lynn, said: “It was horrendous.

        “I couldn’t work. It was the tiredness – I was physically exhausted. I couldn’t get my head off the pillow. The chemotherapy knocked me for six and I just wanted to sleep all day. Then I was in and out of hospital for six months afterwards with various infections.”

        Even with sick pay and then Employment and Support Allowance, Lynn and her husband Charles, who was in temporary employment, got into arrears with their mortgage and council tax payments.

        They almost lost their home but Macmillan Cancer Support helped them pay the mortgage and “keep the wolves from the door”.

  148. “THE UK GOVERNMENT INTERCEPTS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION SUBMITTED TO THE UNITED NATIONS”

    ………….How low can the government get?

    From: Disabled people against Cuts

    19 October 2015

    Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
    The DWP have been quoted as saying ‘“We strongly reject the
    allegations made by DPAC” in reference to the UN Convention on the
    Rights of Disabled Persons ongoing inquiry process into grave and
    systematic violations and the retrogression of disabled peoples’
    rights in the UK .
    This quote has now appeared in a number of media . It suggests a
    breach in confidentially re submitted documentation and key issues
    raised by Disabled People against Cuts (DPAC) through an external
    government body.
    As a result we are requesting:
    Any communications between the DWP and ministers that mention DPAC
    between Jan and Oct 2015

    Yours faithfully,

    Disabled people against Cuts

    • ………..after intercepting DPAC’S submissions to the UN

      DWP spokesman said:

      “We strongly reject the allegations made by DPAC. The UK has a proud record of furthering
      the rights of disabled people, with the principles of the UN Convention at the heart of its
      approach.

      “Suicide is a tragic and complex issue. The reality is that the mortality rate for people who
      have died while claiming an out-of-work benefit has fallen over a 10-year period. This is in
      line with the mortality rate for the general working-age population.

      “Fol owing reforms to the work capability assessment, which was introduced in 2008, people
      are getting more tailored support to return to work instead of being written off on long-term
      sickness benefits as happened too often in the past.”

      • Which makes me wonder if my lengthy submissions to the UN Inspectors have also been intercepted?

        The UK government will stop at nothing to hide the welfare mortality statistics that the Queen gave a royal seal of approval to………….
