How The Joseph Rowntree Foundation Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Tory Party

war-on-the-poorYesterday the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, who claim to be an anti-poverty think tank, held their annual lecture.  Coming at a time of soaring homelessness, brutal benefit sanctions and more cuts on the way you might have expected this event to discuss how to best resist, or at least mitigate the impact of what is to come.

You might have expected that.  What happened instead was a speech by the leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party Ruth Davidson during which she set her stall out as a Tory who pretends to care about the poor in advance of the Scottish parliament elections in May.  She was warmly received by the small gathering of poverty professionals who bothered to turn out for the lecture.  She should have been fucking lynched.

Davidson began her speech with a frank description of how most in the Conservative Party view the poor – in essence that as long as markets are free and state support kept to a minimum then people only have themselves to blame if they fail to thrive and end up in poverty.  But she is different she claimed.  She understands that not everyone is born equal, that the free market is actually rigged in favour of the rich from the day they are born and that some people might struggle to prosper under cut-throat capitalism.  The conclusion to be drawn from this is clear – poverty does not happen because poor people are somehow deficient human beings but because disadvantage and inequality are structural consequences of the current economic system.

Of course then she launched into a gushing rant about all the wonderful charities she has visited and what wonderful work they are doing fixing poor people.  She wants to see lots more of this she declared as her concerns about structural poverty vanished into thin air.  She wants more funding for do-gooders, not more money for the poor.  No wonder the assembled voluntary sector managers gave her such a welcoming reception.

One of her big ideas is more mentoring schemes, echoing David Cameron’s pledge to create a new generation of mentors as part of an “all out assault on poverty”.  Mentors have long been seen as the magical fix for the alienated youth ever since The Karate Kid was first released in 1984.  It is an idea that chimes perfectly with the assumption amongst the wealthy that all poor people need is to meet someone rich who will teach them not to be poor anymore.  They imagine sharp suited business people high-fiving inner city urchins over a Mcdonalds Happy Meal and dazzling them with tales of aspiration and entrepreunership.  The reality is some golf club nonce sleazing round the local youth club for a while and then getting bored and giving up when they don’t get either a blow job or an MBE in the first fortnight.  No mentoring scheme has ever worked and everyone in the anti-poverty industry knows it, but hey, it’s a funding stream, the gravy train must stay on track.

Davidson barely received a word of criticism for her views when questioned by the assembled delegates and JRF’s head toff Julia Unwin.  But sadly this is of little surprise.  These are the kind of modern, dynamic wankers who can drop long held principles at the drop of a hat.  Fighting against the Bedroom Tax, workfare or benefit sanctions is so last year.  Now it’s all about in-work progression and better targeted ‘support’ for the so-called hardest to help. Benefit sanctions in other words, for everybody.  That’s why the JRF recently invited Tory stooge Matthew Oakley to write a report discussing the best way to introduce in-work sanctions to encourage people with jobs to strive harder.  That’s the same Matthew Oakley who once worked at the Treasury helping to design Universal Credit, before moving to the right wing Policy Exchange think tank.  Now he’s being paid by an anti-poverty organisation to come up with new ways to make people poorer.  To help teach them not to be poor.  It’s a fucking joke, and not a very funny one.

The benefit sanctioning regime which forms part of Universal Credit is horrifying.  Those in and out of work alike will soon be condemned to survive on just a few pounds a week if they fail to meet endless Jobcentre demands to constantly look for more or better paid work.  Those with jobs could see benefits intended to help with housing costs sanctioned for the first time.  These sanctions can last a punishing three years and are not just aimed at the single unemployed but many on sickness benefits as well as those with young children.  For some they will be a death sentence.

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation are intensely relaxed about all of this though.  They have a whole section on their website where grinning latte slurpers warn that Universal Credit must come with ’employment support’ – the latest euphemism for workfare, benefit sanctions and Jobcentre harassment.  Not one of these clowns will ever face the nightmare they have now decided to enthusiastically embrace on our behalf.  Quite the opposite in fact.  They are currently advising for a position that pays £75,000 a year, and that’s not even to be the boss.  There’s good money to be made out of poverty for everybody except the poor.

  1. How they have fallen! For many years ,in the late 80 till the 90s, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation building in Soho hosted, at nominal rents, groups such as the Socialist Society and….the Unemployment Unit – a research and campaigning group for the out of work.

    Now they are, on this evidence. just the usual parasitical riff raff of the Charity Business.

  2. JRF have been flirting with both Oakley and Policy Exchange since at least 2011, when then Minister of Work and Pensions Chris Grayling made his infamous speech warning about the danger to the UK economy of “…the Burmese, hairdressers and the Polly Toynbee Left” at a PE event at 100 Victoria Street.

    The JRF rep was particularly vocal and given loads of leeway by Oakley who was chairing; probably because he was the only one of the 100+ present not asking specific questions about accessing the 25 different regional funding streams.

    The two SolFed members that had also blagged their way in and I were reduced to shocked silence by the level of spittle inducing ranting against the poor from these overfed self-proclaimed “wealth creators”. Bastards.

  3. I had a mentor, 13 years ago, still no better off now and that is not through the want of trying. It is a sign that things are going down hill for the morals of rowentrees, the people who once really cared are long dead.

    • This country could do no worse if it was inviting that slitty-eyed North Korean fruitbat over here to take over us all and make up clap in synchro at his latest “satellite” launch from an R.A.F base.

  4. Indeed The Poor and Vulnerable Need a Real Voice Not Out of Touch
    Trendies or Slavery Stooges

  5. Sad to see JRF as cheerleaders for these repressive schemes.
    Universal Credit, as people are at last beginning to realise, is an endless treadmill of workfare and sanctions.
    But perhaps when the in-work sanctions begin, we will at last see some wider public opposition to these changes.
    It may be that the Tories will finally end by doing what they usually do, going too far.

  6. Charities that do Not Care about the Poor and Vulnerable Need to be
    Boycotted

  7. Notice that Petition For The Resignation of Ian Duncan Smith as
    Secretary of State For Work and Pensions Now has 116,373 Signatures

    Labour Austerity Stooges Need to Resign Hands Off the Poor

    • Typical Tory mentaility biting the hand that fed it into power by ignoring the will of the common voter and shafting them with denial.

  8. There Needs to be Monuments to the Victims of the Margaret Thatcher
    Regime throughout the Country like One in Trafalgar Square London
    One in an old Yorkshire Mining Town and One in Liverpool amongst
    other places

  9. Santa Hates You

    It’s a real shame to read about the watered down Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Back in the day this organisation fought tooth and nail to get a fair deal for the poor. Now it appears to rub shoulders with class oppressors as though there is nothing wrong in our society.

    Of course, blaming the poor is nothing new. The Tories have always blamed the poor because it lets the government off the hook. Equally, we have all seen the bullshit propaganda purporting to discredit the poor at every turn – think the Daily Fail and Channel Age 5.

    However, when you get the likes of JRF cheering a bunch of austerity bastards then you know it’s a fucked up organisation. JRF makes me sick!!!Thanks for letting us know JV.

  10. FUCK THE TORIES

    Why don’t any of these wankers, the so-called Opposition included, ever mentio n the fact that UK Benefits are being underpaid by about 45%, according to the Council of Europe? And why don’t any of them scream blue murder about Hardship being turned into repayble loans, which is an absolute fucking OUTRAGE?

    • Because the welfare pot isn’t big enough to give the poverty pimps their salaries and those on benefits what is due to them.

      That is why you get all of this patronising shit about needing a mentor to get a job, the truth is the mentor needs you and your welfare pot to get a job.

      • Invasion of the Cockroaches

        Yeah, the jobcentre’s idea of a ‘mentor’ is some cunt sat on their fat arse in the jobcentre being paid 75K + expenses + car taken from the welfare pot to harass just the ONE claimant. Imagine having your own ‘dedicated’ cock roach who has got nothing to do all day except bug YOU!!!! !!

        • bug is the right word, to find out as much about your doings and who you are, as opposed to really find you work. There used to a be a few, a very small percentage of jobcentre workers that wanted to help you find work, but I doubt they exist any more, never mind.

          • Those cockroaches are more likely to land people into sanction without any just cause or discretion. Things are bad now, but will get even worse when Universal credit comes in across the land.

            • universal credit is already in my area and has been for sometime, it was piloted here all it has done is made peoples situations worse and employment is no better excepting in statistics. That’s why I’m off employment benefits, that is why I still don’t have a job after 4 years of being off employment benefits. doesn’t solve societies problems, it just saves the government money, but I don’t think it even achieves that really. It is a very poorly devised social experiment and I am sure you already know all this. But while the rich are having a good time, they won’t care much what happens to us. I hope there is an end to it soon Fen, for you and me and everyone else caught in its trap, but I won’t hold my breath.

              • The rich, the government civil servants and the bankers are all having a good laugh at our own expense. People not in these categories are simply ignored as a problem and the cause of this country’s downfall. We are not the greedy ones, they are.

                Those lazy MPs have voted in another huge pay rise and yet they claimed they didn’t. Money is being stolen from the voters, workers and unemployed and is being poured in large amounts into the bank accounts people sitting on their chump doing absolutely nothing other than just talking all day in a decrepit building.

                Only the bankers and MPs see themselves as equal. We don’t matter to them. Let’s start a revolution as this is the only way this country will get out of debt and spread money around to everyone, not the elite tory toffs and tax fiddlers.

                • Matthew wright on his show today was telling an old man who complained about bog off offers making things cheaper for families but everything is expensive for the single person – Matthew said find someone to share with, which is a reasonable request (if you are buying into the you can live for cheap bullshit), he is sat there doing nothing but gossiping with a panel of celebrities and getting well paid for it.

                  Perhaps he and the celebrities should learn to share their incomes (which are overestimated), by putting all incomes into one big pot and sharing it out amongst everyone, so that all get a good income, they will not need to buy bogoff then. It’s time these daytime shows and couch potato celebrities bogged off and put something worth watching on tv that is entertaining, not pay them for having a good gossip, while real hardworking people cannot get a decent wage or basic pension.

                • All these shows do is pay the tax bill of the rich i.e. the ones that actually pay any tax.

  11. Money talks, walks and turns friends into enemies. Life is cheap when you sell your soul to the devil.
    The Agenda must carry on, charities are having their mouths stuffed with money to make sure this is so.
    Charities like these are no more than satans little helpers.
    Welcome to the world of demonic corruption on a global scale.

  12. You are right sage, agenda 21 is now being accelerated into agenda 3O where they want to replace capitalism with technocracy, the aim is to de-populate the world by at least 9O% and the ones left will be slaves.

    • Mmmmm the 10% who are “lucky” to survive will be microchipped, be under constant surveillance 24/7, and made a slave for the NWO bosses, might as well be f*cking dead!

          AGENda 21 is opposed by people like Donald Trump who think anypne should have the right to build a golfcourse (or hotel/factory/oil well, etc-) anywhere they Damn please unhindered by any one. They see the UN as a threat to national sovereognty. They are rightwing loons. Agenda 21 is simply about sustainable development. Ive read it.

          • Nuts, go on zengardner.com and read what agenda 21 is really about.

            • I dont think the UN are trying to enslave us. Our enemy is the Rich, the Capitalists, the Corporate-lead Politicians who serve the interests of Business not the people. Loons like Jeff Rense & Alex Jones are xenophobic, isolationist, nationalists who perpetuate conspiracy theories against everyone from the World Health Organization to ‘the Jews’. They believe that organizations like the UN are somehow ‘un-American’, and Obama is African-born Communist. Why listen to them when we’ve got David Icke?

        “So if you’re not asleep, or sat up in your sleeping bag, you are not homeless. They do all they can to make sure the figures are as low as possible, yet they’ve still doubled in Manchester.

        “You can only imagine just how vast this problem really is.”

  13. I always thought that the Tory party were full of sh*t and corrupt those who otherwise try to do good.

  14. BOLLOCKS TO SANCTIONS

    Under Miliband Labour were supporting Benefit Sanctions and told me that they didnt think Sanctions were the biggest cause of poverty in UK today, but that unemployment is, adding that Sanctions were a vital tool on helping people into work. Hence I didnt vote Labour. I recently contacted them to ask if they’d changed their minds yet, but they didnt bother to reply. I’ll take that as a NO then.

  15. Rosemarie Harris

    What we all need to do is bombard the website and say how we hope they have enjoyed the pay rises they have had … because The J.R.T used to understand now they have been shagging the pigs head and oinking.

    • Rosemarie – Yes, indeed – bombard the website and bring it down.
      I do not know personally how to do this – but I am very sure that there are people out there who could very easily do it.

      • It’s quite simple really. In essence what brings a website down is the server getting too many requests for the information, i.e. the webpages hosted on it. It can be because, for example, a website suddenly, and without warning, becomes popular, but usually a website crashes because of what is called a DDoS attack, (Distributed Denial of Service) where someone uses the services of lots of computers to co-ordinate a sudden, all at once hit on a server, thus overwhelming it. To do this usually means hijacking other people’s computers, usually without their knowledge. This can be as part of an app that you have downloaded from a dodgy website. Deliberate DDoS attacks are against the law, but I guess that if there was a way of co-ordinating a time with all our friends to go and visit the site, that might make a difference?

        A more sure-fire way of getting them to pay attention is a communications blockade, where you organise a campaign to e-mail them, send Tweets to them, or posting on their Facebook page, effectively swamping their social media. Setting up a campaign on 38 Degrees, or Sum of Us could also be a way of getting at them, so long as it is clearly pointed out to them that what they are considering isn’t very nice when looked at from our point of view. People such as those who work for the JRF are well-meaning, but usually from financially much better off backgrounds and whose knowledge of how poorer people live is too often very lacking. Plus, like far too many people, they tend to be political lemmings, and will only be too pleased if a Tory politician starts to say the things that appeals to them, and they won’t ask the right questions, such as what underlies that sudden interest on the part of the Tory politician… That’s where we come it, we can make the sense of cognitive dissonance so overpowering that they will not be able to ignore it. We need to explain to them, in clear and simple terms, what the effects sanctions have on us; what it means to have to try and live on a benefit that is underpaid by about 45%; how being sanctioned isn’t likely to make us more likely to get a job etc, etc. The kind of people who work for the JRF and other ‘do good’ agencies, are essentially reformers, who think that all that is needed is to get the ear of the government and try to persuade them to be nicer to poor people – and yes, it is as condescending as that.

        The JRF hasn’t as far as I know, really bothered to listen to the people directly affected by the disastrous Tory policies, but that doesn’t stop us telling them!

  17. All the poor need is more money, simple as that. Why is that so difficult for people in power to understand? Could it be that those in positions of power have all the money themselves and the last thing they want to do is share it? Surely not!

  18. Santa Hates You

    According to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation:

    ‘Our vision is for a prosperous UK without poverty where everyone can thrive and contribute. To achieve this we work in partnership with private, public and voluntary sectors, as well as with individuals and communities. Using evidence and experience, we search for the underlying causes of social problems and demonstrate practical solutions in order to influence lasting change.’

    What a load of bollocks – why don’t they tell the truth instead:

    ‘The Joseph Rowntree Foundation works for the Tory party’.

    • Santa Hates You – Very true my friend – looks like they are lying fucking cunts – in bed with the Tories with a load of ‘expensive mansions’ to match.
      Just like most of the big ‘Registered Charities’ – their CEO’s are raking it in –
      “GIVE YOUR £3 A MONTH – WELL, THEY CAN ALL FUCK OFF”!

      Just wait awhile until the ‘working people’ who voted ‘Tory’ last time start being hit by some of their proposed cuts. I for one will not feel sorry for them – they voted them in – they made their beds – now they are going to have to lie in them. Revolution may be on the way when all of that begins to happen – and the media may not be able so easily to cover it all up as they have done for so long now!

      • Santa Hates You

        Paultheswineherd – Totally agree with your comments. At the moment the impact of the Tory cuts are sinking in and families up and down the country are taking the shock. But just like the poll tax – things are inevitably going to get pretty ugly.

      Joseph Rowntree defends funding to NGO with links to terror suspect2
      Governance | David Ainsworth | 3 Mar 2014

      The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust has said it stands by a decision to give more than £250,000 of funding over six years to Cage, a human rights organisation whose outreach director, Moazzam Begg, was last week charged with terrorism offences.

      Begg, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee who was held without charge for three years, was charged last week at Westminster magistrate’s court with providing terrorist training and funding terrorism overseas, in connection with the conflict in Syria.

      • “NIC PERKS, ONE OF THE USUAL BERKS”

        …………………oops i’ve been funding terrorism

        Nick Perks, secretary of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT), said that his organisation continued to believe in Cage’s work. He said that his organisation had looked closely at Cage’s work when it first allocated funding, and had decided that it did not support terrorism.

        “We think what they’re doing is valuable,” he said. “There are still 155 detainees in Guantanamo, the vast majority of whom have not been charged with a crime.”

        However he said his organisation was concerned to hear of the charges and was “closely monitoring the situation”.

          Geoff – Well said. The ‘West’ is always trying to bring ‘democracy’ to these dictatorships. With my knowledge of it it could be argued that these countries really do not know what ‘democracy’ as such. For most of them, dictatorship, in one form or other is all that they have ever known.
          Sometimes it is best to live with the devil you know than try to introduce another that you don’t! And then of course – there is OIL! (and the good old U.S. of A.)!

      • But GEOFF, if nuclear weapons vanished today we would be at War with Russia or whoever tomorrow. If we rolled back the advances in military today, tomorrow we would be sending our young men to die horrific deaths in Gallipoli or somewhere.

        The REAL war-mongers are the no-doubt banker-funded CND, that little no doubt takes a back-hander from the Rothschilds little shit in Scotland Sturgeon or whatever her name is.

        Our economy used to run on a boom > bust > war > boom basis. As Rothschild said he makes his money when blood is flowing on the streets.

        It is a lot more difficult to start a war with nuclear weapons. It doesn’t stop the bastards trying though: Jimmy Carter even proposed a ‘limited nuclear war’ with smaller warheads and a pre-determined amount of warheads fired by each side. Just how sick are these fuckers!?

        Don’t worry about it though, GEOFF. Wind the clock a bit and you would have been worrying about ‘reds under the bed’, ‘being invaded by Russian submarines’. You are being fed propaganda to keep you worrying, and place you in a state of anxiety. You die quicker that way!

  24. Reblogged this on Lindas Blog and commented:
    What/Who are The Institute of Employability Professional and what is their real agenda?

    Another excellent article from The Void below.

    Within this blog is a link to the Report mentioned here by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation

    https://www.jrf.org.uk/report/employment-support-high-wage-economy

    You can download the report at the bottom of the page.

    What grabbed my attention was the mention of expanding what they call
    The Institute of Employability Professionals. which appears to be a newly formed Institute set up by the government.

    https://myiep.site-ym.com/
    It would appear from the downloaded report that the Government are looking to expand this Institute.

    Within the Rowntree Report It speaks of the way it is attracting young graduates to train up to become employability professionals, mentors etc.

    One example is the mention that after one year of training, they can qualify as Social Workers!!

    There is also more in the report relating to this Institute and the governments plans for it.

    Im wondering how big and far reaching this newly formed institute and its agenda will propagate.

    Ive had a brief look at the website but you cant access any of the documents etc on it without first registering with them.

    And registering appears to be highly vetted. One has to be a certain type, or already working in this type of area.

    It just struck me how secretive it all is. What an Impressive Name. Implying so much! Words can be so influential and Deceptive.

    My gut is telling me that this so called employability Institute is likely to be an important New player in the Governments Agenda.

    I have no doubt that their agenda is more about Behavioral Change than Employability etc.

    If anyone manages to find out more about this Institute, perhaps manages to register etc, then the info within the Website could be revealing etc.

  25. “JOSEPH ROWNTREE HOUSING TRUST OWNS 2000 HOMES”

    JRF works in partnership with the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT).[3] JRHT provides housing, care homes, retirement and supported housing, and demonstrates new approaches in these areas. It manages more than 2,000 homes, roughly half of which are in New Earswick, York. The remainder are in the City of York and surrounding areas. JRHT also provides retirement and supported housing services in York and other parts of north-east England.

    …………………………..IMAGINE THE RENT INCREASES WHEN THE TENANTS ARE TURFED OUT

  26. I used to appreciate it when the foundation published the poverty figures that often appeared on the BBC News.
    Oddly, i used to consider it strange that the Tory laden BBC gave airtime to the figures, given that they exposed the true face of the rich/poor divide and highlighted the plight of children.
    Like all organisations and charities, they have jumped on the bandwagon of knocking those that they purport to be helping. We have seen this so many times recently, especially when chasing government funded grants.

    And that is why the takers are now being shafted for accepting the Kings shilling, doomed to silence never to show dissent or speak against the hand that fed them. Stitched up like a kipper…………..

    Because of all the bad publicity, king Kit Kat will have to review his position within the foundation, as will Julia Unwin, the Quaker chocolate baron’s worst nightmare.

    You have betrayed the visions of your founder, who was most probably one of the worlds most notable thilanthropists who pursued a vision that you wrecked within a couple of years.

    “Hold your heads in shame for insulting the poor, the disabled, and the chidren, the very people you are supposed to represent”

  27. p.s. perhaps Sue Marsh has a sister who would consider the £75k position.

    • Ms Marsh was a double agent from the very start. “A plant” to gather as much info as possible and report back to her masters. The whole blog was a complete stitch up, a scam.
      Ms Marsh does not exist, never has done, All an illusion even down to her appearances, this woman who ever she was, fooled a lot of people.
      She was never lured to the dark side, she was already there.

      • “Sue Marsh” – a DWP/Maximus construct. How many ‘dissenters’ are on some ‘list’.

        Similar thing happened in the States. Some supposed ‘gun-lobbyist’ set up a pro-gun site. Then came out as anti-gun and as the gun nuts were supposed to think turned the guns nuts into the Feds, but it was all set up by the Feds from the start. Same with “Sue Marsh”. The blog was probably published from DWP Towers possibly from the Press Office or whatever agency that write the press releases.

        • Even the name “Sue Marsh” sounds like a government agent.

        • Just seen this over on that intensiveactivity site, always thought there was something not quite right about it, and never did trust that Andrew Coates?? character – his eyes are far too close together….

          “True, doug. Did anyone read the “Terms and Conditions” before posting on here?😉 “We collect personally identifiable information which may be shared with third-parties, including but not limited to, government agencies and law enforcement; including but not limited to, the Police, DWP and it’s executive agencies, including but not limited to, Jobcentre Plus and third-party providers of services to the DWP and it’s executive agencies; for the purposes of, including but not limited to, crime prevention and detection, including but not limited to, fraudulent benefit claims and activities, actions, and incitement to actions which hamper the operation and functioning of DWP and it’s executive agencies, including but not limited to, Jobcentre Plus and third-party providers of services to the DWP and it’s executive agencies…..

          “Ipswich Unemployed Action”, “Andrew Coates” and the “Andrew Coates Avatar” are intellectual property of the DWP.”

          You can never be too careful these days….

          • He sounds as bad as the doctors, council, housing associations etc that all share information with the powers that be.

            I was watching the BBC housing enforcers this morning harassing an old woman tenant to have her garden cleared of weeds that were growing up her (snotty) neighbours fence, (the old ladies regular gardener had died).

            Instead of harassing the old lady to find a gardener the big fat lump should have been offering to provide services for her better still offer his own services.
            Then they had the case of landlords making a fortune overcrowding their houses with migrants to turn a quick profit, they forced their way into the house where the tenants were barely dressed, videoed them and were praised by Matt Allwright for fighting their way in.

            Why doesn’t he go and force his way into and televise the real person’s house they should be filming – the bloody landlord?

            • The Couch Potatoes

              The big fat lump from the council could have trimmed the old ladies hedge himself in the time that he spent harassing her, which is really what anyone with any ounce of decency would have offered to do anyway. Looked like he desperately needed some exercise too, would have done him the world of good.

    • The same “Sue Marsh” who took £75K to be “Customer Experience Consultant!, for Maximus. So her job must have covered accessiblity – ensuring many Test centres have no disabled access, and that there are many fewer centres than claimed in the contract, so people have to travel excessive distances for assessments. It should have included ensuring that the most inexperienced and unqualified “health professionals” are pig-ignorant of any aspect of illness and disability. She would have made sure that those “customers” (what a doublespeak for people who have absolutely no choice about their mandated attendance on fear of losing all lifeline benefits) all Customers with MH problems are treated like they have a personality defect of being “lazy” and should just go out to work to effect a miracle cure. She would also have been involved in the “customer experience” of being stripped of PIP mobility and personal care benefits, which we all know leads to the life-changing experience of being disabled, and isolated in one’s home and left without any care at all in some areas, when the LA can’t afford to provide even the basic care functions.

      Oh yes, Sue Marsh, “Customer Experience” manager. On her salary I’m sure she’s one happy customer of Maximus.

      • Which exactly what her blog was, all about “the customer experience”. The blog needed info on how claimants are/were coping, which is..
        CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE.
        Claimants were hoodwinked into disclosing private information, It was like taking candy from a baby.

  28. “These sanctions can last a punishing three years and are not just aimed at the single unemployed but many on sickness benefits as well as those with young children. For some they will be a death sentence.”

    Do you suggest that it’s all perfectly fine if “just aimed at the single unemployed”? Don’t you think they might starve and die too?

    • Yeah the usual, that sanctions should be targeted solely at the “single unemployed” and that “the sick and those with young children” should be exempt from sanctions. That the “single unemployed” are less worthy as human beings and it is somehow OK to allow the “single unemployed” to starve to death. There should be NO fucking distinction when is comes to dishing out sanctions. The “single unemployed” are HUMAN BEINGS!!

      • The “single unemployed” are actually, in the eyes of the DWP, criminals. We are being accused of commiting crimes for simply being out of work through no fault of our own.

        And what do the tossers give us? Bloody work programme and work experience. Which is as good as stomping on a rattlesnake and not expecting it to bite us on the ass with its venomous fangs in revenge.

        • The single unemployed paid full tax and stamp for their benefits out of one income not two. They also have to pay all bills (water is the same no matter how many are in a house, but meters end up more expensive) gas and electric, you still need to heat your place but those who use less pay more for their heating before any discount kicks in after using a number of units. Families use more units so get a little help with tariffs, not that anyone is advocating reducing benefits for families God forbid, they are on low enough incomes.
          If the single get to go on holiday they have to pay extra for a room.
          If they drive a car, they pay the same for petrol as a family driving 4 people around. It all adds up.

          • All civil servants, MP’s and government officials only want our vote during an election just to get them into a cushy job with loads of money and gold-plated pension scheme. Whomever gets in power in councils or government quickly forget about the people who voted them in and turn a blind eye to those in need of help.

            We don’t matter to them, and as the silent majority we have to suffer while our rights, privacy, money, jobs and houses are lost to the greedy few.

    • Sometimes it seems that the “fight” is really just about obtaining exemption sanctions and the effects of welfare cuts from “vulnerable groups” and if this is ever achieved all these campaigns will die a death, this blog will shut up shop, and the “single unemployed” will be left to starve to death on the streets and none of these “vulnerable groups” will give a shit since they have achieved what they set out to achieve through through the struggles of the “single unemployed” and they are now “All right, Jack”. Is this what this is REALLY all about?

      • Your right, the sick and disabled are now being told there is nothing wrong with them, they are also being pushed into this scapegoat group. I personally care about everyone. Of those millions of vulnerable people, the single and unemployed are also vulnerable, financially vulnerable, those millions of people aren’t just a number they are all suffering people, while the government just plays with numbers, and looks to agree which numbers should they show, divide them up into the undeserving and the deserving, but they are all deserving. They put those that are not claiming benefits in the group that are in work. I no longer claim out of work benefits so I am according to government in work, despite not having a paid job for 11 years.

    • What use are single unemployed people to anyone? ….. it is not like they have got kids or anything…. single unemployed are big enough to look after themselves…

    But actually, she is incredibly condescending, smug and sarcastic, in the wrong way that is. Her manner is quite appalling, and that she supports everyone of the anti social security policies of her big pal Dave the Hogboy.
    There is no such thing in this day and age as a “caring” tory.
    As everyone else has observed, it is unfortunate how far down the Rowntree lot have fallen.

    Under Miliband Labour were supporting Benefit Sanctions and told me that they didnt think Sanctions were the biggest cause of poverty in UK today, but that unemployment is, adding that Sanctions were a vital tool on helping people into work. Hence I didnt vote Labour. I recently contacted them to ask if they’d changed their minds yet, but they didnt bother to reply. I’ll take that as a NO then.

  37. I Agree

    Santa Hates You | February 9, 2016 at 6:07 pm | Reply

    It’s a real shame to read about the watered down Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Back in the day this organisation fought tooth and nail to get a fair deal for the poor. Now it appears to rub shoulders with class oppressors as though there is nothing wrong in our society.

    Of course, blaming the poor is nothing new. The Tories have always blamed the poor because it lets the government off the hook. Equally, we have all seen the bullshit propaganda purporting to discredit the poor at every turn – think the Daily Fail and Channel Age 5.

    However, when you get the likes of JRF cheering a bunch of austerity bastards then you know it’s a fucked up organisation. JRF makes me sick!!!Thanks for letting us know JV.

  38. Fit for work (not)

    I am afraid that charities have always played with the poor. Going back to Victorian times the charities have always rubbed shoulders with the rich elite and hung on to the ear of governments .Charities have always been willinjg to take a few crumbs from the government table and in turn have been only too willing to do the bidding of governments,

    People, if you want to see any change in these symbiotic relationships between government and charities then you know what to do. Fuck the charity sector, harass and destroy these poverty pimps and DO IT FOR YOURSELVES. The working class are more powerful and canny than governments like to believe. Charity begins at home and in your communities.

  39. Went to the “jobsfair” this morning at my local morgue (JCP) and the same old usual rubbish and no-jobs on offer again as previous. I only went today as for once there was a real chance of a proper job available, even though it’s part time but anything better than the load of old cobblers on UJM.

    The thing is though, it seems that everyone else in my town out of work is also after the same bloody job roles I put my name down for. Bloody layabout chavs only doing that because they have either been threatening with sanctions or are already on sanctions for being lazy cunts.

    I only hope that later today I do get a phone call from the company offering these jobs, that I get booked in to interview tomorrow for the role I put down for. If not, I will be livid that some snotty nosed chav with no shop experience will probably be offered above someone like me who knows shop work inside out.

  40. ………..had a little chuckle after i read that the government, the police and the banks were forming a task force to help combat fraud.

    Is this some kind of joke given that HSBC, Barclays, Goldman Sachs and Uncle Tom Cobbley and all, have been fined countless millions in every continent for fraudulent practices, mis-selling of insurance, libor fiddling and currency transaction and rate malpractice……………….

    Our own HMRC are complicit in ignoring offshore wealth havens and doing sweetheart deals with multinationals and record numbers of senior police officers have been caught with their hands in the till.

    Who is fooling who?

  42. “CHALLENGE EACH AND EVERY SANCTION”

    • If you don’t challenge a sanction you may as well say “Fair cop, guv. Guilty as charged”. If, as we are always hearing, sanctioned claimants have done nothing wrong, that they are entirely innocent, then WHY AREN’T THEY CHALLENGING THE DECISION? WHY? Because and INNOCENT person WOULD!

      • because they are downtrodden, weary, some don’t have the strength to deal with, most have little to eat when they are getting their full benefit, some aren’t in a fit state to challenge anybody. Some don’t even know you can appeal, some are sacred they will make the situation worse. There is no justification to take people’s basic living right away from them anyway, even murderers in prison have to be fed. And benefit claimant have to be denied this because they turned up 5 mins late, if that was all they were guilty of?

      • paultheswineherd

        Marie – that well deceased vile bitch has still got a tremendous amount to answer for. It is that cow that first introduced the idea of ‘selling off the nationalised industries’ to turn them into private and very greedy companies, (with their shareholders being especially favoured) while there prices to the consumers have continued to rise remorselessly ever since. She oversaw the Miner’s Strike, the destroying and decimation of much of Britain’s manufacturing industries. The introduction of the Poll Tax (eventually destroyed by rightful and very vociferous public opposition). (Unfortunately I cannot see that happening with Cameron & the Tories for a while yet! – the public are far too ‘soft’ and ‘trusting’ of them and Murdoch’s Media). She oversaw the taking away of ‘children’s milk’ in schools. She oversaw the greedy yuppy & banker culture – the overhang of which we still have to this very day.
        Basically it was a culture of ‘look at me’ – ‘I am very rich’ and fuck everyone who is lower then me – both socially & economically. (Again, we still see a lot of this today!)
        And then there was Norman Tebbit – ‘on your bike to look for a job’. In Cornwall, where I lived a long time ago now, it was all up hill & down dale. To go to work and come back on a bike continuously would be a total killer unless you were a veritable ‘Bradley Wiggins’ – I think that even he would find it hard if he had to that week in and week out for goodness knows how many years. She did a lot of damage and this still continues to this day in the form of Cameron, Osborne, IDS and the rest of the obscenely rich MP’s and Ministers of this shambolic and selfish cruel Government administration.

    Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 21st January 2016. You asked:
    “…if both state and independent schools will be included in this Jobcentre Support for Schools initiative? And in particular, will Jobcentre Plus advisers be visiting the following schools as part of the national support for schools initiative? The schools are:
    1. Eton College, Eton, Berkshire
    2. Harrow School, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Middlesex
    3. St Paul’s School, London”
    I can confirm Jobcentre Support for schools will support state-funded schools in England.
    There are no plans to extend support to independent, fee-paying, schools. .
    If you have any queries about this letter please contact me quoting the reference number

      House prices ‘force Tory MP’ back into parents’ home

      William Wragg, Conservative party MP for Hazel Grove, says he can’t afford to buy a house despite earning £74k a year

      A Conservative MP earning £74,000 a year says he has been forced to move back in with his parents because he can’t afford to buy a house.

      William Wragg, 28, who earns three times the national average wage as MP for Hazel Grove, near Stockport, Greater Manchester, said he had become part of the so-called “boomerang generation” while he saves for a deposit.

      This is despite self-contained one-bedroom flats being available in his constituency for rent at as little as £110 a week – just over an eighth of Wragg’s weekly take-home pay. He is also entitled to House of Commons expenses to cover the rent of a London flat.

    Ms Haigh claimed there was an ‘alarming trend’ of cases being rejected on ‘factual errors’ or ‘falsification’ and highlighted the latest figures showing that 54 per cent of appeals result in work capability assessment decisions being overturned.

    She said an assessment of one of her constituents with learning difficulties contained ‘glaring factual errors’ but his employment and support allowance (ESA) was docked.

    • Geoff – I saw a recording of PMQ’s earlier this evening and again I was disgusted by Cameron’s and a lot of the MP’s behaviours.
      Cameron was his usual ‘top-man’ bombastic arrogant self who would not answer questions, or twist questions, or bring up the ‘mess that was left from Labour for them (the Tories) to correct’. The background barracking at times was awful and The Speaker, John Bercow, could only just hold it all together.
      (Its high time that he started to eject MP’s from the HofC that will not shut their mouths up and behave).
      That poor lady that you mention above scored 0 points – it is unbelievable, but yet unfortunately it IS believable. The so-called ‘health professionals’ should never ever be allowed to carry out such assessments.Cameron had the audacity to say about his ‘disabled son’ in response. He never answered the question as usual, but I would bet £10000 (if I was a betting man, which I’m not!) that he (Cameron) has never ever attended a Tribunal and will also probably ever do so in the future.
      (I did also notice that IDS who was there in the usual sidelines previously promptly vanished before this question was raised. I have said before and I will say again, this ‘man’ is not only a callous, psychopathic murderer, but he is also a COWARD.

      • Speaker Bercow only complains when MPs (SNP) clap their hands. Tut, Tut! How so unprofessional for a Parliamentarian. Other than that, they can do anything they like it seems!

  54. “NO CAUSAL LINK TO HIS DEATH, THE DWP ARE MURDERING TO ORDER”

    Mr Donnachie didn’t know where to turn after his benefits were stopped.

    In September, as he struggled to cope with no income, he applied to Glasgow City Council for a Scottish Welfare Crisis Grant to pay for gas, electricity and food.

    But his application was rejected and he was advised that if he wanted to eat, he should go to a food bank.

    Eleanor Donnachie, her brother Paul committed suicide after being hounded over his housing benefit and by DWP
    ‘Murder’: Eleanor claims the Tories killed her brother

    Even in death, he was robbed of any final dignity.

    The council letter informed him he had to reply within 14 days to have his housing benefit reinstated.

    Because he failed to do that, his arrears continued to build. His body was found when the council came to evict him.

    After his death, the authorities continue to hound him. One letter demanded £3002.72 that he owed in council tax arrears.

    Eleanor, who is calling for an inquiry into the scandal, said: “It says it all that they only discovered he was dead when they came to evict him.”

    …………..HOW MANY DEATHS IS THIS?

    • All those DWP endorsed deaths are organised personally by the lunatic hangman himself Idiotic Dumbo Smith. Nothing gets done through DWP without him first signing the paperwork making the death by sanction, etc, process legally binding.

      The old “royal” harrandon turns a blind eye as usual to one of her servants when it comes to killing off her subjects just to save a few pennies in the yearly civil service budget granted to the Death to the Workers and Pensioners department – formerly known as the Department Of Work and Pensions.

    • Natalie READ (staff nurse)

      “THE WORDS OF A KILLER”

      “However, a DWP spokesman said: “Suicide is a tragic and complex issue, so to link a death to someone’s benefit claim is misleading.”

      • That DWP spokesman in no doubt having been ordered to say that by his boss to save his own cushy job. How does that explain the countless deaths of people as soon as their JSA or ESA were sanctioned or scrapped, or they were simply unable to pay the bedroom tax foisted on to them for having spare rooms needed by carers?

      • I know, what a friggin’ disgrace to come away with a statement like that. Standard DWP issue. No warmth, no humanity, nothing.

        Of course it was caused by the sanctioning of the mans benefit. It happened after he discovered he had no money and was going to be evicted from his home. Plus having no money to buy any food.

        DWP + JCP = SCUM.

    • The DAILY RECORD in Scotland is covering this story on its front page I notice. Well…….Hope they a real proud of themselves. The newspaper persuaded enough in Scotland to support these very policies, and more of these needless murders. DR preferred tory rule to free rule. A bunch of nazi collaborators! Strong words, yeah, but the DR helped give us moe if this. They and Labour between them,.Had Scotland voted YES, Cameron and the tories would have been thrown out of office…..but as Miliband supported Hognoy, he too would have been out of office! Well….he is out of office. But his pals are in power,. That’s what he wanted. I have absolute contempt for these ppl.

If economic conditions were improving then there would be less of the un-certain jobs (self-employment) and more stable long-term permanent jobs with career prospects and pension plans.

    All I get round my area is daft josbfairs from people (JCP) who couldn’t even organise a piss-up in a brewery.

  59. A HIGH STREET BRAND THAT PROFITS FROM SLAVES

    POUNDSTRETCHERS

    February 10, 2016

    There are some businesses that thrive on poverty, and Poundstretcher is one of them. Poor people shop there because it is cheap – and one reason it can be so cheap is that people are forced to work there for free or lose their benefits, under the DWP’s Mandatory Work Activity scheme: probably some of the same people who they rely on as customers.

    Last week one of our SUWN activists was told to report to Poundstretcher in Dundee this morning, along with a group of around 8 other people on JSA. He was not happy, and yesterday he delivered a letter to Learndirect who arranged the placement. This made clear that it was not reasonable, even in their own terms, to expect a skilled IT engineer who had been unemployed only 9 weeks to do a placement designed to ‘develop disciplines associated with employment’. It also pointed out that stacking shelves at Poundstretcher does not comply with the Mandatory Work Activity Provider Guidance requirements that placements are of ‘community benefit’ and ‘not at the expense of employing workers in the open market’. Poundstretcher serves no community function, and their employees have been refused a request for more hours. However it was made clear to him that if he didn’t turn up he could be facing a 13 week benefit sanction. So, this morning, he duly checked in – and we duly set up a protest with banners and chants outside the gates.

  62. Following on from my 08 02 15 comment about not signing the electronic signature.

    Today JCP have send me on the ;

    ROUTES TO EMPLOYMENT 10 WEEK COURSE Adult training network. They couldn’t even tell me anything about it as usual! Not to mention it is going to cost me a fortune to get there on a weekly basis yet they coudn’t care less.

    I’m POST WP over 18 months).

    Has anyone else mandated on this post WP?

    The only thing it says on the letter of attendance is

    ‘You have been referred the following Opportunity
    ROUTES TO EMPLOYMENT

    (bold)
    Please note that if, withough a good reason you fail to go when expected
    or stop going to the provision mentioned above (as in Section 19(5)(b) of the Jobseekers Act 1995), any future payments of Jobseeker’s Allowance could cease to be payable or could be payable at a lower rate. You could also lose entitlement to credit of National Insurance contributions.

    Once you have started this provision, you should contact the provider immediately if you will not be able to attend for any reason’.

    However, NOWHERE does it actually state it is MANDATORY!

    IS IT MANDATORY TO ATTEND?

    I have already done this shite under a different name at least 3 times before but they say I still have to go and lied by trying to tell me it was a different course. They are also making me go in to daily sign after the course ends despite the fact I did this for months as well post WP. Yet they are making me do all this time wasting claptrap again!

    I am being told a litany of lies and keep tripping my advisor up after virtually their every sentence and the harassment has escalated over the past couple of weeks for this reason. No good complaining to any senior/managers in there as they are ALL in on it and lie through their teeth to me all the time.

    I DEMAND everything in writing yet they repeatedly refuse and immediately change the subject and turn everything around big time to criminalise me and making a scene to deliberately attract the attention of security to make out I am the one causing the scene, yet if couldn’t be further from the truth as they hate the fact I am firm but very calm and know my rights.

    You have to see it to believe it as they scurry around spouting irrelevant rubbish from the CC and other paperwork twisting the terms and conditions and blag their way out to suit themselves.

    As far as I am concerned she has no right to make me do either.

    Interestingly, as I was leaving, I again demanded she put my daily sign (starting tomorrow AGAIN!) app in writing and refused so I said where does it say this in my CC. She started panicking and desperately got rid of me when security came over just by coincidence and threw down her telephone number on the back of the Work Plan booklet I refused to sign.
    That in itself proves she was lying through her teeth again

    Please advise asap.

    Thanks very much.

      CGAL@ “””I DEMAND everything in writing yet they repeatedly refuse and immediately change the subject ………..””””

      If they don`t put it in writing then there is no commitment or no commitment in writing. Don`t get angry, stand your ground that until it`s in writing they are powerless to act on threats. Sounds to me like a load of phone threats – It`s all over the phone which means nothing except they try to trick you into contracts over the phone & they will fill in the signature for you.

      • paultheswineherd

        Stepping – that’s interesting – if they use the tactics of ‘filling in the signature for you’, well technically that is fraud – a potentially criminal offence! If they did this to me then I would try to pursue a case of fraud against them!
        (It’s the sort of thing that used to happen with the ‘agents’ from the big 6 (cartel of) energy companies – filling in potential customers ‘signatures’ for them and taking them from the energy firm that you were with to another energy firm (without your legal permission to do so)

          Paul – Writing letters is a paper trial which the DWP don`t want. You might get a letter with ESA50 that is really a Maximus letter that has no Bar Coding or official DWP stamp. As stated the ESA is a questionnaire not a form. So no DWP responsibility !!!

    • Welfare Rights Adviser

      Yup, it is MANDATORY to attend.

      There are two OPPORTUNITY notification letters that the Jobcentre use, although they don’t tell you. One of them doesn’t include a threat to your benefits which means that at least technically if you don’t turn up they can’t stop your benefits. And in any case, if your benefits are at stake they are required to include a warning.

      The notification you have received though is the MANDATORY one. Your benefits WILL be affected if you do not attend.

      “Please note that if, withough a good reason you fail to go when expected
      or stop going to the provision mentioned above (as in Section 19(5)(b) of the Jobseekers Act 1995), any future payments of Jobseeker’s Allowance could cease to be payable or could be payable at a lower rate. You could also lose entitlement to credit of National Insurance contributions.”

  63. Do what razor advises ‘cease and desist’ from this harassment.

    • ps I notice the diktats ‘fail to go without good reason’ or ‘just stop going to the privso above ‘etc as in section 19 (5) (b), were made under the Blair government.

    • If the ‘cease and desist’ letter doesn’t work, you can always send a ‘cease to exist’ one to IDS. 🙂

  64. Sorry, well spotted fly hawkes – totally agree with you!

    the letter says (acidentally missed out)

    ‘Please note that if, without a good reason you fail to start, (acidentally missed out) fail to go when expected or stop going to the provision

    mentioned above (as in Section 19(5)(b) of the Jobseekers Act 1995), any future payments of Jobseeker’s Allowance could cease to be payable or could be payable at a lower rate. You could also lose entitlement to credit of National Insurance contributions’.

    The Confidence Trick is the DWP fast track disabled through Maximus before they have sent back their ESA50. The DWP have already given Maximus your DWP details to Maximus. Since there is no signature on the ESA50 it will be processed. The problem Maximus & the DWP forget is that the ESA50 is a public questionnaire [Bullshit form] & receipt of the form means you are on the books of Maximus. The same confidence Trick is used through out the DWP & Jobcentres. Sounds like the DWP get a commission on every unit they put on their Sub Contractors books.

    The DWP & all of these companies are scared to put their threats in writing.

    Cold Calling Phone Calls are illegal DWP. Put it in writing.

    CUNT & AND THE BBC TRYING TO STITCH UP THE JUNIOR DOCTORS.
    Well, well, well, the BBC have certainly excelled themselves this evening on the 6 o’clock News. They led with the ‘story’ of the newly discovered ‘gravitational waves’. Whilst this is indeed an ‘exciting’ development made by the Americans, is it really so important (198,000,000,000 light years away or whatever!) that this story should overshadow the ‘much more important’ ‘imposition’ of the ‘New Contract’ on the junior doctors?
    Our NHS is probably one of the most important institutions that us British people have, (especially as one gets older) and it should be supported by everyone at all costs. (Of course, we all can see what is going on – (apart from the baa, baa, ignorant sheople!) the Tories just want to privatise it – hence why Jeremy Cunt ‘wants people to suffer and die’, so that he can then conveniently ‘blame’ the junior doctors for striking and rightfully standing up for their rights).
    His probable aim is to ripen the NHS up for ‘privatisation’ – hand the remaining contracts to ATOS, MAXIMUS,
    CAPITA, G4S, G4E, AMERICAN HEALTHCARE & UNUM INSURANCE SERVICES (and a whole host of ‘non-qualified healthcare professionals’ and foreigners) and let these criminals take over. We would have to pay what is asked, or suffer in silence, or die – what a shameful situation.
    In my own personal opinion it is totally shameful what Jeremy Cunt has done to these most hard-working and caring individuals. Jeremy Cunt can still draw his vast salary (paid by the taxpayer!), whilst at the same time ‘imposing’ this contract upon them. He apparently ‘does not do Fridays’ – well I feel very sorry for you Jeremy Cunt, BUT I feel very much more sorry for the poor junior doctors – as Geoff said – ‘there is only 1 Jeremy Hunt – but there are 55000 junior doctors’ – who is right and who is wrong? I know whom I would rather believe and it is definitely NOT Jeremy Cunt.

    • I think single people should only have to pay half of the tv licence fee.

    • Animals get better treatment at the vets than us humans get at the doctors. If your dog, cat or pet gerbil for that matter shows symptoms, and you take it to the vet, the vet will investigate, diagnose and if a cancerous growth is found the animal will be operated on immediately.

      On the other hand if a human being presents symptoms of cancer or any other disease for that matter to the doctor the will be fobbed off, and fobbed off even more until the cancer or whatever has taken hold and it is too late. Seen it happen over and over again.

      The NHS always has been ropey and is only set to get worse.

      The NHS was only ever set-up to patch up the broken down machines, and place them back on the production line until it is no longer economically viable to effect a repair. Then the broken down units are sent to the knacker’s yard. Someone, somewhere at sometime has worked out that it was cheaper to patch up the current productions units than the cost entailed in producing new units, and so the NHS as born.

    • paultheswineherd

      Good on you Scottish Daily Record – if only we had this in England!
      I only wish that the likes of The Independent, The Guardian and The Mirror would put THIS STORY on their front page – what a difference it could make.
      Fucking Rupert Murdoch though would never allow any of ‘his’ journalists to put this onto the front page of ‘his’ tabloid rags – The Sun (LOL), The Daily Mail (LOL), The Daily Telegraph or The Times.
      All far too much adversarial to Murdoch’s ‘Tory friends’ and ‘dinner party’ confidantes. The ignorant and couldn’t care less ‘sheople’ in England don’t care a tuppeny shit – as long as Portsmouth beat Manchester United and they got their monthly salary they wouldn’t care.
      Just wait though – the Tax Credits cuts on ‘hard-working people’ are coming – some of those ‘hard-working people’ may just have voted Conservative in May of 2015. I’m alright jack – fuck you may just eventually begin to start to boil over in rage at what they helped to elect – a dead-pig fuck P.M in the form of David Cameron and crack drug ridden George Osborne.

    The BBC have tonight surpassed themselves in being complicit with Government policies. On the BBC 6PM News – they led with the 189,000,000,000 million light years away ‘gravitational wave’ news.
    This came first – the junior doctors second – that says it all doesn’t it!
    Jeremy Cunt has today ‘imposed’ his contract upon the junior doctors – the very junior doctors that help to keep the underfunded NHS going. The very junior doctors who are so hardworking and they go out of their way to keep their patients safe. As we all get older we, as a society are very likely to get begin to rely more and more on the NHS.
    Jeremy Cunt realises this and he and his Tory brethren are trying to ripen up the NHS to privatisation – probably by giving contracts to ATOS, MAXIMUS, CAPITA, G4S, G4E, UNUM INSURANCE SERVICES & AMERICAN HEALTHCARE (for their support to the Tory party and it’s M.P’s & Ministers (including Jeremy Cunt – as was recently exposed by Geoff in his post on here).
    Junior doctors/BMA – you have got to fight them or they will try to break you. I also hope that the Unions (and even the Labour party – (laugh out loud!) – may just TRY to support them. They need all the support that they can get. The Government is now, after only one thing – to discredit the junior doctors – if and when patients start to suffer and die – so that they can blame them, bring in non-qualified ‘health-professionals and foreign doctors and nurses – AND THEN, BEGIN TO PRIVATISE THE NHS FOR REAL.

    • “DWP AWARD MAXIMUS £500 MILLION CONTRACT AND THE DWP DON’T KNOW HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS HAVE BEEN MISSED”

      Dear Ms Lorenz,

      Thank you for your Freedom of Information request which we received on 18 January 2016.

      You asked:

      How many ESA assessment appointments are cancelled by Maximus?

      Do Maximus have any targets contained in their contract for waiting
      times?

      Do Maximus have any targets contained in their contract for the
      amount of times they can cancel an appointment?

      In response:
      Q1 Due to the broad nature of your question we estimate that the cost of complying with your
      request would exceed the appropriate limit of £600. The appropriate limit has been specified in
      regulations and for central Government it is set at £600

    • People are dying in the NHS BECAUSE JUNIOR DOCTORS ARE RUNNING THE WARDS, what they need is fully qualified doctors covering a 24hour 7 day a week rota in the hospitals, they get paid enough.

      • Can't get a fucking appointment to see the doc

        Too right, fly. People don’t fall in between convenient surgery hours (round here it is Mon 12pm-4pm, Tu to Thu 10am to 4pm, Fri 10am to 3pm). Low-paid workers including care staff have to work 24/7 shifts for no extra pay. Doctors are lazy fucking bastards. The older ones can’t wait to head off to the golf course and these younger junior ones want to be out partying at the weekends. It is high time these lazy cunts who all come from well-off backgrounds, most will have parents who are doctors, were taken to task. Jeez, can almost feel myself siding with Cunt on this one, at least for taking these lazy, over-paid cunts on.

        And was gob-smacked on BBC News to see all those PCS (Pricks, Cunts and Scum) unions banners waving in the air at the docs demo.

        • Can't get a fucking appointment to see the doc

          fall ill – fucking typos!!

        • I didn’t see them going on strike or getting the banners out when they reduced NHS workers for agency staff, taking yet more money out of the NHS.

          Nor do we see them out in force protesting over patients that are badly treated, neglected or wrongly diagnosed in these same said hospitals.

          When there was a national strike in the 70’s doctors and nurses were the only ones that did not go out on strike.

          Now these junior doctors are threatening to go abroad, so much for their hypocritic oath.

          Hospitals are being closed left right and centre again no strike from the mad medics.

  70. The Minister of State for Health: Jeremy Cunt – This is the exact measure of the cowardly bastard: (Please look at this and make up your own minds!)
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/jeremy-hunt-literally-ignores-the-concerns-of-a-junior-doctor-confronting-him-in-westminster-a6867381.html

    • This is the ‘filmed and recorded” example of the junior doctor’s ‘boss’ Jeremy Cunt, duly shying away from the true people that he is supposed to ‘represent and support’ – he is now NOTHING – apart from a total COWARD – the same as his Ministerial Tory friend, Iain Duncan Smith.
      The only Prime Minister of Great Britain who has fucked a dead pig’s head, David Cameron, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, – George Osborne, (seemingly a drug addict with a crack habit) and a murderous psychopathic Minister of State for works & Pensions, George Iain Duncan Smith.
      ALL OF YOU BASTARDS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO ANSWER FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE & WHAT YOU ARE CONTINUING TO DO TO THE BRITISH PEOPLE. TIME IS INEVITABLY RUNNING OUT FOR ALL OF YOU SONS OF BITCHES. THE CLOCK IS TICKING DOWNWARDS.

      • The Government wants to make weekends normal working days, so that those of us becoming ill at weekends get a decent level of service. They are extending this principle across all of the NHS and compensating those affected,

        The Doctors are refusing to accept this and in doing so want to set a precedent that prevents proper 7 day care and is holding the NHS to ransom.

        It has nothing to do with patient safety (as the Doctors claim); this is nothing more than naked self interest

        A COMMENT FROM THE VIDEO YOU POSTED PAUL.

        • paultheswineherd

          fly hawkes – yes thanks for that. The unfortunate thing is though, if these junior doctors should up-sticks and push off to other jobs elsewhere – there is going to be even less ‘doctors’ to go round. The NHS as we know it is already in crisis – lack of adequate funding, lack of staff, lack of staff morale, waiting times becoming ever longer, etc, etc.
          It is only a matter of time probably before they start to privatise it more and more (not immediately – but over years and years gradually)
          We will then have not only paid into the system, but we will then have to have a valid ‘insurance policy’ and/or a valid credit card – or, just as in Victorian times and up the when the NHS was formed – you either ‘paid the doctor’ or you suffered/died in abject misery and sometimes terrible pain. I for one certainly do not like the idea of this ‘payment’ system returning.

          • Nobody wants to return to the ‘payment’ system, even America wants a NHS like ours, well Obama does, but what we have now is no good either and threats from JUNIOR doctors sounds very selfish to me.

          • Doctor and the Medics

            The only reason that these fucking ‘doctors’ can get away with this is that Medicine is the only ‘profession’ in which the number of entrants is strictly controlled. And it is the fucking BMA that is responsible for this.

            The solution is to open the ‘flood-gates’ for those who wish to study for a career in medicine. Give working-class kids a chance to become doctors and let these middle-class knobheads fuck off. There is no shortage of people willing and eager to train as doctors. Incidentally, doctors are amongst the thickest students at university; only surpassed by the Law faculty.

            Medicine, because it is mostly laboratory-based is the most expensive courses for hard-working class taxpayer funded universities to provide.

            Make these middle-class contribute to the costs of their tuition and if they want to fuck off abroad or work in the private sector, or for Maximus etc. make them pay back the full cost of their tuition.

  71. “DEBBIE ABRAHAMS AND NEW LABOUR COMPLICIT IN HIDING WELFARE DEATHS”

    The shadow minister for disabled people has implicated New Labour in an apparent cover-up of the government’s failure to respond to a coroner’s report on the suicide of a disabled man found “fit for work”.

    Debbie Abrahams has repeatedly refused to criticise – or even comment on – the failure of Iain Duncan Smith to respond to the report into the death of Stephen Carré, despite being shown clear evidence that the Tory work and pensions secretary failed to do so.

    Disability News Service (DNS) has been trying since last November to secure a comment from Abrahams on Duncan Smith’s failure to respond to the report, and take measures that would almost certainly have saved many other lives.

    But apart from expressing sympathy with “Stephen Carré’s family and friends” and calling for improvements to the work capability assessment (WCA), Abrahams has refused to say anything about Duncan Smith’s role in the scandal, despite DNS showing her team clear evidence that ministers failed to respond to the report.

    “Debbie Abrahams and Labour now have all the evidence they need to string IDS and the DWP up over the scandal of the WCA and the deaths and suffering it continues to cause.

    “If they, inexplicably, continue to refuse to act upon this information we can only be led to one conclusion: that this opposition is no opposition and that they are indeed complicit in the catastrophic harm being meted out to us on a daily basis.”

    Debbie Jolly, co-founder of Disabled People Against Cuts, said: “Government departments and ministers have an interest in trying to cover this up due to their own complicity. But they will not succeed.

    “Labour, and in particular Debbie Abrahams and [shadow work and pensions secretary]Owen Smith, must act immediately on this issue.

    “At the very least there must be a call for immediate changes based on the evidence presented, and a public inquiry into these (and other) needless deaths.

    “Iain Duncan Smith’s inaction must be publically challenged.”

    ……………DWP HOUND UNFIT MAN TO START WORK

    “All my life I have worked and this is how I get treated”

    Stroke sufferer says DWP are ‘forcing him back into work’

    Crewe man Michael Ashley says the DWP is forcing him back to work when he is unfit after a stroke

    A CREWE man says he feels he is being punished for having a stroke because the DWP is forcing him back into employment when he is unfit.

    Michael Ashley, who worked at Airbus in Broughton, had a stroke in December 2014 and now struggles to use one side of his body.

    On occasion he has had ‘accidents’ where he has been unable to get to the toilet on time.

    But, following a 43 minute health assessment to see if he is eligible for employment and support allowance (ESA) – the benefit which has replaced incapacity benefit – the DWP has just ruled he is fit to work.

    Michael, who lives at his mother’s Davenport Avenue home since his stroke, said: “I can’t move my right arm much and pick things up or hold things like my phone. My right leg, from my knee down doesn’t work. I have to wear a splint to protect my ankle.

    “My foot doesn’t move at all, I can’t even wiggle my toes, I also need a walking stick everywhere I go.

    “I have accidents because I can’t get to the toilet quick enough.”

    He said he fears the embarrassment of wetting himself if he gets a job.

    • It’s really upset me. I can’t stop crying.”

      According to the letter Michael has received from the DWP, he should ‘start looking for a job straight away’.

      “If you need help with this, you can speak to a work coach at your local Jobcentre,” continued the letter. “They can help you identify work you can do with any illness, health condition or disability you may have.”

      A spokesman for the DWP told the Chronicle: “The work capability assessment has a greater focus on what people are able to do with the right support, rather than just writing them off on sickness benefits as happened in the past. A claimant who disagrees with the outcome of their assessment can appeal.

      “The decision on whether someone is well enough to work is taken following a thorough independent assessment, and after consideration of all the supporting evidence from the claimant’s GP or other medical professionals.

  83. “EX SQUADDIE, WHO URINATES BLOOD FOUND FIT FOR WORK”

    A former squaddie has slammed the government’s attitude towards benefit claimants after he was left in limbo with his rent before undergoing a number of tests to find out why his is coughing and passing blood on an ever more regular basis.

    “I have served my country and worked all of my adult life, paying into the system the entire time,” Michael Lynch told The London Economic. “It’s not that I don’t want to work, it’s that I can’t and this adding more stress to what is already an incredibly stressful situation.”

    The 27-year-old from Southend, Essex, added that the test he faced when applying for Employment Support Allowance (ESA) – once known as Incapacity Benefit – was “set up for him to fail” and “deeply unfair to those unable to work”.

    “I have no doubt that the it was designed this way because of pressure from the top of government,” he said. “I have no sympathy for those who are too lazy to work, or cheating the system, but after what I’ve been through, I can’t see how anyone could qualify. I can’t work; when I walk down the street blood gushes out of my orifices, how can you keep down a job with that going on?”

    Mr Lynch said he had passed blood in his urine since the age of 18, when he also signed up and served as private in the Royal Logistics Corp in Germany.

    AND THE USUAL SHIT………………….

    A DWP spokesman said:

    “We owe the men and women who have served their country a huge debt of gratitude and will do everything we can to help them to find work.

    “The decision on whether someone is able to work is taken following an independent assessment, and consideration of all supporting evidence.

    “The assessment focuses on what people are able to do with the right support, rather than just writing them off on sickness benefits as happened in the past. A claimant who disagrees with the outcome of their assessment can appeal.”

    • “DWP STEAL DISABLED WOMANS CAR”

      Disabled Jenni takes mobility fight to her MP

      Jenni Dodd, from Crewe, fears she will have to give up work if the DWP takes her Motability car away from her. Jenni is disabled after suffering a stroke at the age of two

      A DISABLED Leighton Hospital worker is to meet MP Edward Timpson later this month after the DWP turned down her appeal to let her keep the Motability car she uses to get to work.

      Jenni Dodd, who has been disabled since suffering a stroke at the age of just two years, has been left with paralysis down her left side and also has severe dystonia, which means her muscles go into spasm.

      The 29-year-old mum of two is unable to walk very far – and has to drag one foot behind her when she does.

      Now the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) has rejected her appeal to keep the car which has been specially adapted for her and said it must be returned on February 23.

      • “FOLLOWED BY THE SAME OLD CRAP FROM THE MINISTRY OF DEATH”

        The DWP says there is an Access to Work grant Jenni could apply for if she needs practical support to get to work once her car is taken away.

        A spokesman for the DWP said: “Decisions on eligibility for Personal Independence Payment are made after consideration of all the evidence, including an assessment and information provided by the claimant and their GP.

        “The majority of people leaving the Motability scheme will be eligible for a one-off payment of £2,000, which will help ensure their mobility needs continue to be met. Claimants who are unhappy with the decision can appeal.”

      • “mum of two” …😉 If she is fit enough to bonk then she is fit enough to take the bus🙂

        • You can’t really expect some people to say anything else.

          Edith – With a name like your’s, you are probably a pensioner anyway, so you have no need to worry at all. If you are on DLA (as very many pensioners are also!) then you, as a pensioner are totally protected and your award will not change and you will not have to be ‘assessed’ ever again.
          If you were in this lady’s position – I think that you may think somewhat differently. She had a job and they have taken her car away – the DWP say that they are trying to get ‘people into work’, but, by their very actions in this (and many other cases), – they are actually causing disabled people who have jobs to lose them.

      • Tenant Evictions Reach Highest Level On Record

        A total of 42,728 households in rented accommodation in England and Wales were evicted by bailiffs in 2015, official figures show – the highest number since records began in 2000.

        Housing campaigners blamed welfare cuts and the shortage of affordable homes for the 2% rise in repossessions over the year, revealed in figures from the Ministry of Justice. More than half the evictions are thought to have been by private landlords.

        The MoJ’s data showed that the number of rented properties repossessed fell in the final three months of the year, to 9,775. The previous quarter saw 11,269 households lose their home.

        The figures show that the number of evictions increased by 53% over the five years from 2010, to the equivalent of more than 250 a day.

    IDS is desperate to ‘excuse himself’, blame someone else and pass the buck – BUT, nevertheless, his actions and his orders to his DWP has still resulted in the deaths of claimants. He is a murderer and is, at the very least, guilty of manslaughter. (Please read the letter in the article – it says a lot about the ‘man’ and his policies).
    http://www.welfareweekly.com/iain-duncan-smith-blasts-media-who-accuse-the-government-of-outrageous-actions/

    • Good link. Yes it says it all about these Tory bastards and how they will use any buzzwords or slogans from some academic paper, that doesn’t even apply in real life, to excuse their appalling crimes against the people of this country.

    • “DUNKO THE CLOWN REJECTS BEING CALLED A MURDERER”

      The Work and Pensions Secretary writes: “There are some out there in the media and social media who have used ONS [Office for National Statistics] figures to accuse the govt of outrageous actions.

      We don’t need statistics from the ONS to find you guilty because each and every death carries the indelible hallmarks of your department.

      I will reiterate what Paul said, “We are coming to get you”

      You may think that you have some form of impunity from prosecution being a crown servant, but start to realise the extent of your crimes and the number of bereaved families baying for your blood.

      An eye for an eye, a life for a life…………………………………………..

      • Geoff – exactly so – this bastard really believes that he – as a Government Minister – is totally above the law.
        Nothing could be farther from the truth. This cunt, (no matter what he says) is NOT above the law. If you, or me were to break the law, if it was serious enough, then we would be brought before the Courts to answer for our transgressions.
        This murderous cunt has, by his own ideology and also his own orders to his ‘Department for Works & Pensions’ presided over far, far too many deaths of completely innocent people to be forgiven. It is all too late and
        he is going to have to answer for what he has done.
        No running – no hiding. The clock of retribution is ticking down on him. No matter what ‘security’ he has around him – someone will get through.
        George Iain Duncan Smith – the coward (one of many!) of this Tory administration has got blood on his hands and he will pay – either through the Courts – or whatever.
        Even if he does eventually ‘leave office’ alive – I can assure you now that there are going to be ‘people’ out there to avenge the deaths of these poor unfortunates. I look forward now to say that his life will not be safe and he will have to watch his back for ever and ever into the future.
        Iain Duncan Smith will NOT get away with all that he has done.

        • Blair and Brown have!

          • It is simply astonishingly how these fuckers can sleep at night – Blair is reportedly sleeps like a baby! Most of us if we ran over a hedgehog in out car would be having sleepless nights for goodness knows how long. But these fuckers are responsible for 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000s of deaths and they don’t appear to have one twinge of conscience.

      • His hand writing is absolutely appalling! Now we know that not only is he an insane murder, but an illiterate one…..and yet, there he is telling others they should improve their skills. We don’t think he would fare well in one of his beloved DWP workability courses.
        How this guy ever got to be an MP is a mystery. But then, we must recall he married into privilege and the minor aristocracy, and the idiots in a strange bit of north London just loved the idea that their MP would be from the gentry, etc. Had it not been for his good fortune in getting married to Miss Daddy Moneybags, Smith would never have got the nomination, and if he did, would not have lasted long.

    Whilst talking about ‘expenses’ – just take a look at this farce!
    The timeline of Conservative election expenses. Expenses anyone??
    http://www.channel4.com/news/conservative-election-expenses-the-timeline

  96. The USSR is still much more advanced in the direction of a full-fledged agricultural propaganda, with technically perfect propaganda campaigns at harvest time, hundreds of thousands of propaganda agents roaming through the villages expostulating “motherland” and “production”, radio broadcasts and films, and daily publication of harvest results, as in a pennant race. Joining in the campaign are the local papers, the Komosols, the teamsters, the festivities, dances folk songs, rewards, decorations and citations.

    The Soviets employ the same methods in factory work, and the formula that best explains the whole effort is: “Full understanding on the part of the workers is the decisive factor in raising productivity.” It is necessary to obtain the worker’s allegiance to the cause of productivity; he must accept and search for innovations, like his work, support his organisation, understand the function of labour. All this is to be attained through psychological manipulation, by a propaganda conducted over a considerable length of time.

    —-

    He realises that he depends on decisions over which he has no control, and that realisation drives him to despair. Man cannot stay in this situation too long, He needs an idealogical veil to cover the harsh reality, some consolation, a raison d’être , a sense of values. And only propaganda offers him a remedy for a basically intolerable situation.

    Besides, modern man in called upon for enormous sacrifices, which probably exceed anything known in the past. First of all work has assumed an all-pervading role in modern life. Never have men worked so much in our society. Contrary to what is often said, man works much more nowadays than, for example, the eighteenth century. Only the working hours have decreased. But the omni-presence of the duties of his work, the obligations and constraints, the actual working conditions, the intensity of work that never ends, make it weigh much more heavily on men today than men in the past. Every modern man works more than the slave of long ago; standards have been adjusted downward. But whereas the slave worked only because he was forced to, modern man, who believes in his freedom and dignity, needs reasons and justifications to make himself work. Even the children in a modern nation to an amount of work at school which no child was ever asked to do before the beginning of the nineteenth century; there, too, justifications are needed. One cannot make people live forever in a state of never-ending labour without giving them good reasons and creating by example a Virtue of Work , like that of the bourgeoisie of the nineteenth century , or a myth of liberation through Work , like that of the Nazis or the Communists.

    Such dedication to work does not happen by itself or spontaneously. Its creation is properly the task of propaganda, which must give the individual psychological and idealogical reasons why he needs to be where he is. One cannot get good steady work out of a man merely by pointing him to the need for such work, or even for its monetary rewards. One must give him psychological satisfactions of a higher order; man wants a profound reason for what he does. And as this is a collective situation it will be furnished him by a collective means. To furnish the collective idealogical motivations driving man to action is propaganda’s exact task; every time the sum of total labour is to be increased, the increase is accomplished through propaganda. The Soviet Union with its Five Year Plan, set the example, the Chinese “leaps forward” are also typical. In France, all increase in productions rests on an enormous propaganda campaign. And the citizen cannot be really happy in his work unless he is sustained by psychological nourishment, by the combination of promises (such as a few years of hard work and a thousand years of happiness) and the values of the motives handed him. The exigencies of work and economic life life in the modern world create the need for propaganda; in the United States this takes the the form of Human Relations. American writers have often said that the drive toward efficiency cannot be expected to develop by itself. The man who is subjected to the demands for efficiency will ask: “Efficiency for what?” It is then up to propaganda to give him the answer.

    —-

    This is why adjustment has become one of the key words of psychological influence. Whether is is a question of adaptation to working conditions, to consumption, or to milieu, a clear and conscious intent to integrate people into the “normal” pattern prevails everywhere. This is the summit of propaganda action.

    • Wow – that’s a good post!

    • It is not just about propaganda, it is about markets and productivity expectations.
      China has one of the largest populations and industry, that is why it can produce more than other countries and is why we cannot compete, but that does not stop those running our and other countries trying to.

      They do this by immigration,rigging markets, selling real estate, financial services, education and cosmetic surgery etc at inflated costs to make themselves rich and to make other nations think we are a rich country, when the majority of those in this country are slaving away and getting very little in return.

      A night out for the worker used to be attainable by the majority of the working class, not anymore, so hiked up is the price of everything not to mention the fact that you have to pay for taxi’s on top that is why places of enjoyment and leisure for the workers are closing at an alarming rate along with their jobs.

      Once hardworking towns are becoming sedentary, joyless ghetto’s.

      • Us taxi drivers are really suffering at the moment, fly, because as you say nobody can afford a night out any more!

      • The working-class are not out toiling for nothing though: they are working hard to “Make Britain Great Again”, “Put the Great Back into Britain”, “Building a Future For Our Children and Our Children’s Children”, and as you keep saying “Work Makes You Free”😀

  97. For example, there is not much difference between Mao’s theory of the “mould” and McCarthyism. In both cases the aim is normalcy, in conformance with a certain way of life. For Mao, normalcy is a sort of ideal man, the prototype of the Communist, who must be shaped, and this cannot be done only by pressing the individual into a mould in which he will assume the desired shape. As this cannot be done overnight, the individual must be pressed again and again into the mould ; and Mao says that that the individual himself is fully aware that he must submit to the operation. Mao adds that this normalcy does not take shape “expect at a certain level of consciousness — that is, at a certain standard of living.” We are face to face here with the most total concept of propaganda.

    • **and this can be done only by pressing

      • More behaviourism shit, where freedom of expression has to be channelled into activity creating what the rich want to buy. as opposed to what society needs, especially in western countries they are more altruistic in other countries or they were. India has always had a caste system, that is why the British upper class were so at home there, but China is the shocker that is adopting a class system now and adopting a more western attitude to the accumulate of wealth and status.

    • And another good post. I will however, have to exercise my grey matter fully to fully understand and take in exactly what you are saying!
      Looks like quite a lot of ‘human psychology’ to me.

    • “THE STAKHANOVITES”

      The Stakhanovite movement began during the Soviet second 5-year plan in 1935 as a new stage of socialist competition. The Stakhanovite movement took its name from Aleksei Grigorievich Stakhanov, who had mined 102 tons of coal in less than 6 hours (14 times his quota) on 31 August 1935.[1] However, Stakhanovite followers would soon “break” his record.[1] On February 1, 1936, it was reported that Nikita Izotov had mined 607 tons of coal in a single shift……………………….

      ……………………….DOZY BASTARD

      • And soon after Comrade GEOFFOVA REYNOLDSKI surpassed Nikita’s record 😀 And tractor production in Eastern Siberia has broken all previous records🙂

        The really scary thing is that this shit WORKS🙂 When was the last time you heard someone describe themselves as “working”? They don’t, they describe themselves as hard working. What the fuck exactly is hard working? Exactly what the fuck is a hard working family?😀

        • Even the BBC are in on it – a lot of the weather presenters say something like “it’s going to be a wet and windy start to the “new working week”!
          In answer to your question perhaps ‘hard working families’ refer to the two ‘partners’ (presumably with children also!) both going out to work and coming home late (while children have been left with childminders if they can afford it – which most people think they can because they are described as ‘hard-working’!).
          Whilst at ‘work’, some ‘work’ is physically hard and some is more intellectually hard. I reckon it’s all shit sound bytes dreamed up by successive Governments to turn working people against benefit claimants and the unemployed in general. It’s a case then of ‘them’ and ‘us’ – again a standard ‘divide and conquer’ strategy.

        • In our eyes most families consist of individual people who, look after their family, go to school. look after the sick ones and the disabled ones, and look for work even though it is impossible, those you try and make it at their own businesses, or if lucky have a decent job, with decent hours and a decent wage. That is a hard working. But the government sees different, you are only an hardworking family if all individual members work slave hours for slave wages, if any wage at all.

    • The UK has had about four big bollockings for not letting prisoners have a vote.

      Of all the nations in the EU, the UK is probably the most hated, bitching about every little thing.

      Cameron keeps coming back with stories about the nations that agree with his call for reform. What they say to his face and what they do, is another thing.

      To put it mildly………………..

      If every member of the EU voted against Camerons whims, our corrupted media would try and claim that he had been successful but the electorate, me and you, would be aware that he had been shit on from a great height.

    • Unlike Gay men and women who are having babies as if they were on piece work.

    • It’s not going to happen!

      Tell us when the junior doctors, just give us ONE example of when the junior doctors have went on strike to defend anybody else. Just ONE example with do. Truth being told the junior doctors don’t give a DAMN about anyone expect themselves, and THAT is the truth of the matter!

      • Some people care about others, some don’t but it is not fair to say that all junior doctor just care about themselves. that just prejudiced. ITs a bit like saying all benefit claimants are fraudsters, which is just not true.

        • But they are not doctors – they are JUNIOR doctors! Can’t you get that into your thick skull. The NHS is like the ‘teaching hospitals’ in the US. There are no QUALIFIED doctors working in the NHS. It is where trainee doctors PRACTICE on the poor, and yes they will and do make mistakes, plenty of them, let me assure you. But just like a butcher, baker or a candle-stick maker they have to practice and hone their craft. And when they have MASTERED their craft they hot-foot it to money-spinning private practice or a lucrative post in sunny foreign climes. Doctors don’t give a DAMN about their patients, and whether you like it or not, my dear friend Maria, that is the truth of the matter.

  108. JEREMY HUNT, A FIRST CLASS CUNT

  109. Remember 11th February 2016. It’s the day Jeremy Hunt tried to kill the NHS

    News this morning of the government’s failure to listen to its front-line employees in the NHS is unsurprising, but felt with a heavy heart. I am tired: I am tired of fighting this unsafe and unfair contract. And I am frustrated: I am frustrated that we are not been listened to by our employer. But mostly I am fearful: if Mr Hunt continues to proceed with this imposition, then I fear that this will be the beginning of the end of our much-loved NHS – not to mention a threat to the safety of innumerable patients.

    Throughout this scandal it is fair to say the majority of us have felt insulted by the patronising nature of Mr Hunt. We are highly educated and well respected members of society. The majority of us would never dream of misinterpreting data for our own gain, especially if we are aware that the consequences would cause great harm to patients. Mr Hunt’s claim that we are only against the contract because of the BMA is quite frankly insulting and absurd.
    Some believe that we are fighting for our pay and for our right to a family life, but we are not. This is not our primary reason. We are fighting for patient safety and the survival of our beloved NHS. If a contract is imposed upon us, it will be the death knell for an institution we hold very dear to our hearts

      This indicates to me that he is getting very worried indeed (as he should).
      This is a very good attempt at trying to cover up the truth of what has actually occurred – but, the truth still stands that (as some of the Coroner’s reports have indicated) a number of these deaths were directly due to the unnecessary stopping of benefits, benefit sanctions and also other ‘actions’ directly being taken by this out of control and rogue Department of Works & Pensions, of whom he, Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State, is the head of it and therefore, the blame must lie at his door. The staff of the Department of Works & Pensions (carrying out his orders) and also the private companies and the ‘health professionals’ who work for them, are probably also equally culpable in law.
      All of them are either directly, or indirectly responsible for these poor unfortunates taking their own lives.

    I reckon that by the end of June, Cameron will be out of office.
    He is campaigning to stay in the E.U. – but, if after the referendum the result is a ‘yes’ to stay in the E.U. – he will have won.
    But, the Eurosceptic Tory MP’s will rise up against him and he will be no more. Who replaces him though, that is a different matter.

          Both had been paying full private medical insurance for seven years. After the successful operation and many rounds of chemo, the insurance company tried to get out of paying the twelve grand bill.

  134. (Off topic) The cruelty goes on elsewhere too. Sky News just reported that Russian warplanes have deliberately attacked residential areas in Aleppo, Syria. This is against the Geneva Convention and is technically a war crime.
    Of course, Bashir-Al-Assad in Syria & Netanyahu in Israel has been known to do this in Gaza as well!
    In all these cases, it is unlikely that they will be held to account – too many ‘vested interests’ are involved!

    • The Nazis attacked residential areas in the UK during World War II. The UK RAF flattened residential areas in Germany in World War II. The USA dropped nuclear bombs and totally destroyed the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. Nobody was ever held to account!

      • paultheswineherd

        Historian – Yes, what you have said is all very true.
        But, it was not until after the end of WWII in 1945 that the U.N. was formed and the Geneva Convention came into being that ‘officially’ it became a ‘war crime’ to ‘deliberately target’ and ‘militarily attack’ any ‘civilian’ and/or ‘residential’ areas.
        Although ‘adopted’ by all of the U.N. Countries (especially the Security Council Members) – again, due to ‘vested interests’ (including military aims/interests) – these human rights violations have often been overlooked. (Also during the Vietnam & even sometimes during the two Iraq Wars). In any ‘war’, even nowadays, – the civilian population, to a greater or lesser degree are likely to suffer (depending upon the severity of the war and also the ordinances used. If it is a ‘conventional’ one it would not be too bad – but if it went ‘nuclear’ then civilian casualties/deaths would be ever so expotentially higher).
        MUCH more than any ‘military’ personnel deaths!
        One thing is now very clear – we would not want a ‘confined’ middle-east war to very soon escalate – it would be an absolute disaster for our peoples and our World.

        • paultheswineherd

          And one thing is also certain at this time – with what is going on now in the Middle-East – all of our 3 services would be on a high level of alert for possible action – but especially the Royal Navy & the R.A.F!

          • paultheswineherd

            (Off topic) Reports on the media this evening that (either) Russian and/or Syrian warplanes are seemingly dropping ‘cluster bombs’.
            First developed by the Americans then sold/copied, these air to ground weapons are vicious & indescriminate and can cause very major injuries/deaths both by blast and shrapnel. They are outlawed by the United Nations – but nations such as Russia (& I believe Israel also) are not parties to this ‘Treaty agreement’, so therefore are not covered by it.
            Again, using them is technically a ‘war crime’ in ‘International’ eyes.

            • (Again off topic) News that NATO are going to send warships down to try and kerb the ‘migrants’. I personally don’t believe it – the photo I saw recently showed a Carrier Task Group (an Aircraft carrier & supporting vessels/crews). I suggest that it is more the case of building up forces in the eastern Meditterranean in case they are needed/hostilities break out!

        Britain’s biggest banks are preparing to hand out an estimated £5bn in bonuses even as they cut thousands of jobs and endure dramatic falls in their stock market value.

        With investors taking fright at the prospects for the banking industry, major high street lenders are finalising the bonus pools they will pay out in the coming weeks when they report their results for 2015.

        Bailed-out Royal Bank of Scotland is expected to hand out bonuses despite being on course for its eight consecutive year of losses. It has not made a profit since 2007 and in 2008 slumped to a record loss for corporate Britain, receiving a £45bn taxpayer bailout.

          Jeremy Hunt could face one of his most embarrassing days in office if a group of MPs, including five Conservatives, allow a debate in the Commons chamber on the public’s confidence in their health secretary.

          A petition that has garnered 200,000 signatures is calling for his removal, and will go before a committee of MPs to discuss its suitability for a debate in Parliament later this month.

          The plea to oust Hunt from his health brief was started by Graham Hillman, and is receiving huge support with up to 6,000 backers an hour. It was started on Thursday – the day junior doctors were told new pay and conditions terms would be foisted on them.

            George Osborne is the weak link in the Conservative party hierarchy. He’s unpopular with the public – which was highlighted when he was booed at the Paralympics and Star Wars premiere – and he appears increasingly unpopular with his own Conservative MPs. Here are five reasons he could be the person that brings the Tories down:

            Osborne announced in his spending review that he would start cutting the finance that opposition parties receive by 19%. This was seen by George Eaton of the New Statesman as a way to “weaken the opposition and reduce accountability”. In December, Eaton declared that many Conservative MPs were against Osborne’s undemocratic proposals. David Davis described the cuts to Short money as: “the wrong thing to do”.

            Now, Osborne has been forced to backtrack due to the likely Tory rebellion. As the Political Editor of the Sun, normally supportive of the Conservative party pointed out, Osborne is “not having a great winter”. If he continues to upset his own MPs, he could be in trouble.

  149. Dying man left ‘totally broken’ after disability allowance is cut

    06:30, 15 Feb 2016

    By Nathan Hyde

    A terminally ill man from Southcote says he feels “totally broken” after the Government decided to slash the benefits which he depends on.

    After eight years of suffering from an mysterious illness Jason Henry, of Granville Road, was diagnosed with Castleman’s lymphoma at Royal Berkshire Hospital in 2013.

    He was then granted a disability living allowance by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to help him retain his independence while undergoing aggressive chemotherapy.

    But according to Jason, after months of intensive treatment he was told that his condition is terminal and on Wednesday, February 3 the DWP announced that his disability living allowance would be cut.

    The 44-year-old, who is known as Jake by his friends, was then granted personal independence payments (PIP), but he sees these smaller payments as insufficient and insists he cannot remain independent or mobile.

    He said: “I just feel totally broken, that money enabled me to get out of my flat, be mobile and be part of my community. Without it I am stuck inside and can’t see my friends or be part of society.

      “The majority of people leaving the motability scheme will be eligible for a one-off payment of £2,000, which will help ensure their mobility needs continue to be met.

    The crossbench peer, who also chaired an inquiry into the murder of two Soham school girls, suggested the same tough attitude towards benefit scroungers should be taken with older people.

    “Older people who are not very old could be making a very useful contribution to civil society if they were given some incentive or recognition for doing so,” he told a committee of MPs.

    “We’re prepared to say to people if you’re not looking for work, you don’t get a benefit. If you’re old and you’re not contributing in some way, maybe there should be some penalty attached to that. These debates never seem to take place.

    “Are we using all the incentives at our disposal to encourage older people not just to be a negative burden on the state but actually be a positive part of society?”

    This ‘Big-Man’ of the Tory party – ‘pig-fuck’ Cameron – the ‘Prime Minister’ that both Sky News’s Faisal Islam & Kay Burley loves – this total shithouse of a ‘British’ P.M, could perhaps cause the downfall of the E.U.
    Angela Merkel should pull all the Countries together – and then tell him – in no uncertain terms to fuck off.

      If the other twenty seven member states just turned round and said, “Fuck off Cameron, you insignificant little pimp”

        Geoff – Yes, even tonight Cameron is trying to twist the rest of the E.U. countries around his little finger – the UK is only one out of 28 – he is one ‘big and totally arrogant, and ‘always right’ man’ – well, this time hopefully he will meet his match and get totally trampled under their feet!
        Let’s hope that he comes back with his little ‘piggy’ tail between his legs!

    …………….The reason why these three poverty pimps are falling behind with their assessments has become more clearer……………

    When anyone requests that their appointment be recorded, most of the so called, healthcare professionals (ex bedpan washers), are afraid to take part for fear of being sued in the future.

    The claimants who request for their appointment to be recorded are then left in limbo which is creating a huge backlog.

    Many who have requested a recording have been lied to.
    Upon reaching the end of the bogus examination they have been informed that the recording equipment has failed.

    If more people demand a recording, IT WILL PUT MORE STRAIN ON THE POVERTY PIMPS AND PROBABLY BRING IT TO AN ABRUPT END.

    IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME TILL THE LITIGATION STARTS AND THE SHIT HITS THE PROVERBIAL FAN……………..

  156. There is No Patriotic Case for the UK being Trapped in the EU because it is a Betrayal of the Country to this Neo Liberal and Bureaucratic Pantomime.

    The ” Official Opposition ” is Again being part of a Consensus of No Real Choice by Supporting the Tory Regime Leadership in keeping the Country Trapped in the Pantomime of the EU.

    Greece is Better Off out of the EU.

    Norway and Switzerland are Free of the EU.

    Leave the EU Money For British Public Services

  157. I will be Voting to Leave the EU because otherwise is a Victory For
    the Arrogance of David Cameron and the Trio Establishment

    The EU has Done Nothing to Help the Poor and Vulnerable the
    Homeless and is an Ivory Tower Bureaucratic Neo Liberal Pantomime

    • You keep going on and on….and on, about “British money” for public services, etc. You do not seem to understand, that even with London out of the EU system, that “British money” would not be spent on any public services. Noe at all !!
      The anti EU tories, only care about London returning to the days of the ancient Victorian empire. They don’t want to be told they must follow Human Rights. Or have workers rights, or any other peoples’ rights. These are the politicians who’s daddies’ and grandaddies supported Hitler and his policies. Hence why I have been calling them the NEW NAZIS the past 6 years, for such they are. The politicians who quite happily sip their $200 wines, while deporting scared teenagers off to Syria, Iraq, and the likes. And gay boys sent back sent back to Iran. Kids, mere kids who in some cases have been thru absolute hell, and have been in this land for years. All to appease the extreme right wing ultra nazis.I And it is truly astonishing more has not been made of this by the Corbyn lot.
      Do you think the Bedroom Tax would never have happened had we been outside EU? Or the ATOS/MAXIMUS scandals, or the benefit sanctions? All that was always on the New Nazi agenda. And as for monies for public services, …we learn this morning that over 180 millions of “British money” is going to a wee island half a million mile away, at the furthest ends of the Atlantic, to build up defenses there. While UK doesn’t even have a single maritime reconnaissance plane. Not a single navy boat coastguard or hardly a coastguard boat anywhere in Scotland.
      The same London Government that is not prepared to give the funds or a fire cover for London itself, as Boris shut down as many old fire house
      as it pleased him, never to be reopened as he wanted the lovely old building sold off for yet more posh apartments, while the poor are thrown out onto the streets of the great capitol city.
      Do not be fooled into believing Cameron or any of the others want out of EU to have extra money for anyone, other than to help themselves, and as we see this week, their own family firms! That is the reality of how it is.

  158. *off-topic”

    I’ve now got one of those “work plan” booklets from my joke centre. Yet more cobblers I have to fill in each day on top of that dodgy website of theirs. I’ll just copy all the stuff I put on that website and write it in the booklet which will waste even more time than before instead of trying to concentrate of finding work in the first place.

    Do those cunts want me to get back into work or just do admin paper work for them which they previously did themselves. Lazy, good for nothing government parasites.

    • @Fen
      I visited my local Jokecentre in search of some part-time work in my speciality (I’m retired) and the adviser told me I had to look on Universal Jobcrap (his words). Looks like the Jokecentre only deals in sanctioning as the jobs are only posted via agencies – more taxpayers’ money used to line the pockets of private companies. I understand that looking on the board for a job finished 15 years ago so I can see how the Tories want to close Jokecentres as sanctions can be imposed by letter.

    • Fen is that one of those, work journal things or something new?

      • Hi Maria

        It’s a booklet called “My Work Plan”

        • 🙂 excuse the pun but how does it work? and how is it different to what you agree to in the contract you sign when you make a new claim? I haven’t been at the joke centre for a while now and like to keep up with what nonsense they are coming up with next.

    • Actual genuine real employers do not post on that God-forsaken Universal Shit-hole. There is hardly a ‘vacancy’ that you apply for through the site. It is all ‘off-site’, external ‘vacancies’ posted by bogus ‘recruitment agencies’, scammers, spammers, ID fraudsters, CV collectors. Today, all that is on offer is ten pages of ‘jobs’ posted by bogus ‘recruitment agency’ UK recruitment. Exactly the same ‘jobs’ that were posted yesterday and the day before… That is why if you run Universal Automation it will just come back with “No Jobs Applied for” because there isn’t any jobs to apply for on the site.

      But the dangerous bit is that a cock roach can just select one of these bogus ‘jobs’ at random and ask “Why didn’t you apply for that?”. Try explaining to a cock roach that the ‘jobs’ are bogus, fraudulent or whatever. They will just put their fingers in their ears, pretend they don’t know what is going on, and fill out the DART not Actively Seeking Employment referral template, pass it on to a ‘decision maker’ who also pretends they don’t know what is going on to rubber stamp the sanction.

    According to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation:

    ‘Our vision is for a prosperous UK without poverty where everyone can thrive and contribute. To achieve this we work in partnership with private, public and voluntary sectors, as well as with individuals and communities. Using evidence and experience, we search for the underlying causes of social problems and demonstrate practical solutions in order to influence lasting change.’

    “THE ELDERLY SHOULD DO COMMUNITY WORK TO QUALIFY FOR THEIR PENSIONS, SAYS DELUDED SICK FUCK”

    Lord Bichard, an ex-chief of the Benefits Agency, said the elderly should get rewards and fines to make sure they are taking a more active part in the world.

    The crossbench peer, who also chaired an inquiry into the murder of two Soham school girls, suggested the same tough attitude towards benefit scroungers should be taken with older people.

    “Older people who are not very old could be making a very useful contribution to civil society if they were given some incentive or recognition for doing so,” he told a committee of MPs.

    “We’re prepared to say to people if you’re not looking for work, you don’t get a benefit. If you’re old and you’re not contributing in some way, maybe there should be some penalty attached to that. These debates never seem to take place.

    “Are we using all the incentives at our disposal to encourage older people not just to be a negative burden on the state but actually be a positive part of society?”

    Santa Hates You – Well done with that!
    Just wait awhile until the ‘working people’ who voted ‘Tory’ last time start being hit by some of their proposed cuts. I for one will not feel sorry for them – they voted them in – they made their beds – now they are going to have to lie in them. Revolution may be on the way when all of that begins to happen – and the media may not be able so easily to cover it all up as they have done for so long now!

        Marie – Very interesting and thanks for putting this on.
        If only this information could make it’s way onto the national Media – of course, as usual, I assume that they would be reluctant to publicise it.
        After all, that would ‘expose’ the Tories for exactly what they are and how the powers that be just turn a total blind eye to it all that is happening.
        if this carries on then there will be no democracy, increased unfettered corruption and the possibility into the future of a ‘nuclear meltdown’.
        It just does not bear thinking about!

        • The media will never expose this, they’re all a bunch of corrupt, evil bastards. They obviously want all us useless eaters dead, what better way than a nuclear disaster!

      • we could always wait around until the labour party realises that they are next to get the ‘tory treatment’ ie loss of funding because the tories say so!
        Does anybody know what the labour party is for anymore – they’re busy inviting people to a grand dinner in london in the spring so i suppose we’ll have to wait until then????

      • Marie, i enjoyed the video at the end of your post about Tory Election fiddling.
        They were banged to rights and there should be a police inquiry but the Chief police officer of that constituency is both a freemason and conservative member……………….

    • paultheswineherd

      Geoff – Surely now, with this level of apparent ‘covering-up’ they know that litigation is on the cards for them. They are desperate to cover up their own deaths and also cover for their despicable boss – Iain Duncan Smith.
      There is also the outstanding issue of them not coming up with the information requested by the Information Commissioner.
      He himself I would have thought could be letting himself open for litigation against him. He is not (seemingly) pursuing this matter with the DWP – and surely now he may be answerable to a charge of ‘Dereliction of Duty in Public Office’, or something similar to that.

      • One man is responsible for the ongoing murders of innocent welfare claimants, CHRISTOPHER GRAHAM, THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION COMMISSIONER.
        The DWP are using him as a patsy, but he should secure a knighthood for aiding and abetting the state in an act of CORPORATE MANSLAUGHTER.against the poorest and most vulnerable.
        Within all reigns of terror you always need someone like CHRISTOPHER GRAHAM, a weak willed bureacratic non entity to look the other way.

        GRAHAM fits this role to a T………………

        CHRISTOPHER GRAHAM was in the choir at Canterbury Cathedral which one could deduce would make him an ideal target of bullying.

        Is GRAHAM being somehow blackmailed by senior government officials to tow the line instead of exposing the greatest crime of the century perpetuated by a government on it’s subjects?

  173. CHRISTOPHER GRAHAMS father reported on the liberation of Nazi death camps, CHRISTOPHER also worked at the BBC………………
    Who am i to put two and two together?

    • Geoff – Well said – your posts and ideas may well have hit the nail on the head! Why otherwise would there be this aparrent complicity in it all?

      • and the freedom of information office which comprises of over 400 individuals is funded by grant in aid by the department of justice…………

        The department of justice has the most to lose if the welfare claimant cull figures ever emerged for this one department is culpable…………….

      • Why most stately homes in Britain have a checkered (past) entrance.

        http://www.intmensorg.info/checkeredhalls.htm

        • When i was a lot younger, in my teens, i visited a small stately home near where i live.
          My girlfriend was friendly with the occupants daughter who had a hoity toity name and so did her brother.
          The parents had a double barrelled surname and they spoke with a mouthful of marbles……………….
          Their ancestral home was a fucking filthy shithole, the kitchen a disgusting mess and cat piss stains everywhere. When you left you itched and longed for a bath. The lord of the manor could not control his alcoholism and everyday he would collect his princely pocket money from the local post office.
          Empty bottles of wine and sherry littered the living quarters and he always wore beige cavalry twill trousers bearing piss stains like atlas maps.
          His shirt and v necked jumper bore the remnants of his past meals, looking more like canteen medals.

          Their home was open to the public, great big oil paintings of their family line adorning each wall, complete with the complimentary half inch of dust and cat fur stuck in the frames.

          All guests avoided having a welcome drink. The kitchen sink was like a navvies toilet and the cups having more chips than Mccains.

          When the parents spoke i had to look away, they were always pissed and stammered terribly. One day his fly was down and half his pubes hanging out. It was just like a comedy script, honestly you would have laughed your heads off if you were to come upon them……………

          • Well, what do you expect from freemasons Geoff 😉

            • Declare your normality to the world, or risk being labelled a psychopath? The jobseeker’s Facebook dilemma

              You can add this to your Fakebook wall, “Marie”

              “Facebook monitors individual profiles for weirdos. The shutters come down if too many ‘red flag’ characteristics give warning that an oddball may be trying to set up an account.

              Some psychologists and employers now believe that someone who does not have a page on Facebook, or on another social networking site, may be a misfit or even a psychopath.

              Facebook is now used so commonly by young people that not having an account might indicate that you are abnormal and dysfunctional, or even dangerous.

              The German popular magazine, Der Tagesspiegel, noted that James Holmes, the man accused of murdering cinema goers at a Batman film in Colorado, and Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian mass murderer of socialist students on an island holiday camp, have a common feature in their lack of Facebook profiles.

              Having a Facebook page can be seen by some as a testimonial declaring social normality, with a wide circle of friends. The absence might indicate that there is something serious to hide.

              Older people, who established their social circle before networking sites existed, made friends without declaring to all and sundry that they had done so.

              They had more subtle – and some not so subtle ways – of letting it be known that they belonged to particular social groups. The old school tie and membership of The Bullingdon Club or living in the areas of Notting Hill or Chipping Norton come to mind.

              I myself have a Facebook page but I keep forgetting to look at it. Maybe that makes me not-so-young but, hopefully, I am not in need of surveillance.”

            • Is the Scottish Parliament Nut?

              Does the Pope shit in the woods?

              The lunatic freemason / feminists at the Holyrood nuthouse make stealing mens estates much easier with draconian changes to what is classed as abuse (SNP controlled by lawyers and behind the grand theft of mens estates)

              Scotlands Daily Rat controlled by speculative freemasons provides the DV propaganda for their lawyer / judicial lodge buddies to fleece men not part of their satanic network
              MP blames “militant feminists and politically correct males” (freemasons) for stirring up problems between men and women

              MSPs look at making domestic abuse an official offence and punishing partners for psychological and emotional bullying.

              EMOTIONAL and psychological abuse could become a crime in Scotland as part of a major reform of domestic abuse law.

              The Scottish Government has launched a consultation looking at how best to take forward plans to create a specific new offence of domestic abuse .

              This could see the law expanded to take in a range of actions which are not currently classed as being criminal, such as depriving someone of their liberty, isolating them from loved ones and controlling their access to money.

              Justice Secretary Michael Matheson hailed the move as a “significant leap forward in tackling the scourge of domestic abuse in our communities”.

              Groundbreaking new domestic abuse laws could turn emotional abuse and mind games into crimes

              • As well as trying to introduce “Assisted Death” that loony-bin “Parliament” also tried to introduce a whacko “Payment for Sex” Bill which criminalised every man in the land; every man in the land could have been subject to prosecution if and when the authorities choose. Imagine living with that kind of fear. And that little lesbian shit Mhaira Black supports this sort of warped, oppressive shit. Totalitarian Scotland is the definition of a Police State – kow-towed population living under the jackboot in constant fear of prosecution from the authorities. Pity the poor Jocks!

              • Where does the DWP fit in to this? They manipulate, they control, they deceive, they lie, they bully, they withhold money, they render their victims desitute but not one peep from these cunts in Hollywood!

              • Tinfoil Deathstar

                Basically, it means the woman can accuse the man of being “aggressive” , like the jobcentre do, call the cops (Police State Scotland), invariably the man will be “asked to leave”. The woman then obtains an injunction, if the guy comes within 20 miles of the woman, (children) , or his now former home he will be arrested and thrown in the slammer. The cops will also make the situation known to the man’s employer. In any case, the man will be charged, refused bail and thrown in the slammer on remand. So he will be homeless and out of a job in any case. The man will then have to appear in front of a specially-convened “Domestic Court”. He wont receive any legal aid, but the woman will be surrounded by a team of highly-paid lawyers, social workers, and man-haters and hairy-arsed lesbians from Woman Against Men and other bullshit organizations which will receive funding from the politically correct councils, the same council who throw families onto the street who fall back on their council tax payments which the council urgently needs to spunk up against the wall on anti-man ‘initiative’s. In any case, it wouldn’t have made any difference since “Domestic Violence” courts have a 100% conviction rate, kind of like China or some despot regime. The guy will be found guilty and thrown in the slammer. The woman will instruct a solicitor to seize the property he has worked his nuts off to pay for, she will be awarded alimony, he will never see his children again, but he will pay for them. The woman is now free to move her lover into the former matrimonial home.

                • Yeah but women can harass men too and men are just told to stop being soft, you right it’s just not fair really.

    Does the Pope shit in the woods?

    The lunatic freemason / feminists at the Holyrood nuthouse make stealing mens estates much easier with draconian changes to what is classed as abuse (SNP controlled by lawyers and behind the grand theft of mens estates)

    Scotlands Daily Rat controlled by speculative freemasons provides the DV propaganda for their lawyer / judicial lodge buddies to fleece men not part of their satanic network
    MP blames “militant feminists and politically correct males” (freemasons) for stirring up problems between men and women

    MSPs look at making domestic abuse an official offence and punishing partners for psychological and emotional bullying.

    EMOTIONAL and psychological abuse could become a crime in Scotland as part of a major reform of domestic abuse law.

    The Scottish Government has launched a consultation looking at how best to take forward plans to create a specific new offence of domestic abuse .

    This could see the law expanded to take in a range of actions which are not currently classed as being criminal, such as depriving someone of their liberty, isolating them from loved ones and controlling their access to money.

    Justice Secretary Michael Matheson hailed the move as a “significant leap forward in tackling the scourge of domestic abuse in our communities”.

    Groundbreaking new domestic abuse laws could turn emotional abuse and mind games into crimes

    As well as trying to introduce “Assisted Death” that loony-bin “Parliament” also tried to introduce a whacko “Payment for Sex” Bill which criminalised every man in the land; every man in the land could have been subject to prosecution if and when the authorities choose. Imagine living with that kind of fear. And that little lesbian shit Mhaira Black supports this sort of warped, oppressive shit. Totalitarian Scotland is the definition of a Police State – kow-towed population living under the jackboot in constant fear of prosecution from the authorities. Pity the poor Jocks!

    • ………Had to laugh

      On last nights BBC news there was a report about two Burnley drug dealers who had evaded going to prison for dealing.
      Within 30 minutes of their release, they had gone on facebook and made comments of a sexual nature about the judge, BEVERLY LUNT……….

      They were re-arrested and the judge is reconsidering their sentences?

      Surely the big brother surveillance of social media has got out of hand and what is wrong with posting a joke within an enclosed social circle?

      Commiserations to the judge having a rhyming surname.

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-35588776

      • Judge Lunt told the court she did not want to read the messages out which contained “offensive sexual elements”.

        She said remorse and contrition was “a vital component” when considering sentence but said the length of the jail terms was not wrong.

        However, she said, the brothers’ conduct after the sentencing had caused her to question whether an immediate custodial sentence should have been imposed.

  179. @geoff
    He never ridiculed her surname, just made reference to part of his mainframe,

    But moments after leaving court, a message appeared on his Facebook account reading: “Beverly Lunt go suck my ****”, the Manchester Evening News reports.

    • Lias Saoudi (Fat White Family) ‘The Quietus’

      One track that’s the opposite of that, one that’s very clearly about two particular things [heroin use, and the death of austerity victim David Clapson], is the angriest song too, I think. ‘Tinfoil Deathstar’. Is it angrier because it’s closer to home, and more recent?

      LS: Both the things in there are very recent, yeah, for me. Saul had this disco idea, the melody was down, and I wanted to write something about heroin because in the past five years pretty much everybody I know has started banging on heroin at some point. That was a new thing – the first album it wasn’t around, it just wasn’t there. I hadn’t seen anybody smoking it, and then very, very suddenly everybody’s smacked out all the time. I guess that’s people getting older, looking for harder drugs, or the fact it’s a tenner a bag. All of a sudden everybody’s on smack and you’re reading these stories in the paper and it’s just like… So that song has these two sections, like ‘The Whitest Boy’. There are two voices there – it’s finding the right thing to offset the other.

      You make an almost physical connection, between the death of Clapson [who died after his benefits were sanctioned in 2014] and people you know at parties, taking heroin.

      LS: Yeah, there’s some sort of physical connection as well as a socio-political connection, between all these young people who are swamped in hedonism and dirty old drug abuse, and then your guy who’s tried everything [to make his life better] and he’s knocking at the window, like the ghost of Christmas future or something. It’s much more explicit, that one.

      And it’s explicitly about what’s happening in this country, now, not something 70 years ago that’s maybe been romanticised.

      LS: Yeah. I definitely wanted to get David Clapson on there. I’d written a poem about him and I just cut it out of that. I had a longer version of it. I had the tinfoil thing which I started writing later on, and they just seemed to sit nicely next to each other with that break in sound, when it all of a sudden drops down. That vision. It’s writing to the music, getting the tone right. At what point do you introduce the nightmare? That contrast, that ride in the same tune. You’re going to a few different places with this song – that’s the ambition I had with it.

      The focus of the programme is how the partner of a lost one can come to terms with the loss.

      What it will fail to show is how a renegade tory government declines to accept that their insane welfare policies are claiming thousands of innocent lives.

      One can never fully come to terms with the loss of a loved one. Every image and every sound is a constant reminder of an incomplete circle.

    February 16th, 2016 James Wright James Wright News and Politics
    It’s official: Tory cuts to social services lead to ‘biggest rise in death rates since the war’

    The Tories’ austerity programme has led to the biggest rise in death rates among the elderly for nearly 50 years. Advisers to Public Health England (PHE) warned that the 4-year trend may be the worst since World War II.

    Data from the Office of National Statistics shows a 5.4% (27,000) increase in deaths in the past year alone, prompting calls for an urgent investigation.

    PHE said the elderly were bearing the worst of Tory austerity cuts, with women suffering disproportionately because they live longer.

    Professor Danny Dorling, from Oxford University, an advisor to PHE on older age life expectancy, said:

    When we look at 2015, we are not just looking at one bad year. We have seen excessive mortality – especially among women – since 2012.

    Figures show that the number of deaths had fallen steadily since the 70s, as should be expected, as our healthcare and technology advance. But since 2011, a year after the government began their austerity programme, deaths rates began to increase rapidly. The Conservatives are taking us back into the past with deep cuts, and the elderly are falling by the wayside.

    Once other factors are considered, and longer periods examined, public health experts say the current trend is the worst since World War II.

    Dorling cited Tory austerity as the biggest cause……………

    There is also a new project (another new one) in which violent partners will be able to access counselling for their violent behaviour.
    Presumably because there will be no DV refuges for partners to flee to.
    Expect MH, and abuse issues to rise dramatically in children and a significant rise in suicidal parents.

    This is all engineered to cause chaos, suffering and death.
    “Suffer little children, come unto me”.
    Iain Duncan Smith A.D. 2016

  197. Instead of Silly Gormless Soundbite ” Cruel to be Kind ” Better is
    Kind and Not Cruel

    Hands Off the Poor No Austerity and House the Homeless Not Hound
    The Homeless

  198. Notice that Petition For The Resignation of Ian Duncan Smith as Secretary
    of State For Work and Pensions Now Has 117, 315 Supporters

    No to Universal Credit Hands Off The Poor No Austerity and No to the
    Lousy Liberal Democrats Austerity Collaborators

  199. A Vote to Leave the EU is a Vote For Money for Public Services in the
    UK and a Political Defeat for David Cameron

    A Vote to Stay in the EU is a Victory For the Trio of Establishment Leaders in Westminster and the Anti British ” Scottish National Party ”

    Britons Never Shall Be Slaves with Common Sense

  200. Good Quotation from the Ex European Commissioner Claude Cheysson
    ” The Europe of Maastricht could of only been Created in the Absence of
    Democracy ”

    Ignorance is Not Strength Ignorance is Slavery and the EU is a
    Pantomime that owes much in Origins to the Nazis and was Supported
    in Principle by the old Fascist Leader Sir Oswald Mosley
