Vital benefits – designed to meet the additional costs of living with a disability – have been stripped away completely from over 120,00 people DWP statistics revealed this week.
Over a quarter of those previously claiming Disability Living Allowance (DLA) have lost their benefits after being re-assessed by a private company as no longer having sufficient care or mobility needs to qualify for help. Savage new benefit eligibility tests have been introduced as part of the switch to Personal Independence Payments (PIP), which is gradually replacing DLA. So far 27% of those facing this re-assessment have lost their benefit with hundreds of thousands of people still to be tested. Originally the government claimed 20% of people would lose their benefits due to the change-over. Chillingly it now appears it could be much worse. For newly disabled people the situation is even more dire, with only 48% of new claims for PIP being successful.
The shocking statistics come after disabled people announced a day of action against Capita, one of the companies who administer the tests – the other being the despised Atos. Disabled People Againsts Cuts (DPAC), Mental Health Resistance Network (MHRN) and Winvisible have joined forces to call for demonstrations in towns and cities across the UK on July 13th aimed at bringing these vile assessments to an end.
In London demonstrators will gather outside Capita’s offices at 71 Victoria Street, SW1 from 13.15. An online protest will also be held on the day. Please join and share the facebook page for the latest details of all events. As the protesters say:
“ATOS and Capita are making a killing from conducting sham PIP assessments which are seeing thousands of legitimate claimants having their benefits reduced, their incomes slashed and their motorbility cars removed.”
It is time to up the struggle and to demand that the corporate assessors #DoNoHarm”

I want to increase the value of my pension and investments
I am voting remain because:
I want an over abundance of cheap labour fighting each other to see who’ll work for the least money.
I want to exploit the said workforce so i can retire to my yacht in the Cayman Islands and laugh at how i shafted them all.
I want to have expensive parties for my business friends who are also enjoying the freedom to exploit poor people who are desperate for any job no matter how shite. We’ll drink expensive champagne and eat caviar and revel in the thought of poor people getting even poorer because of us.

First figures on ESA mandatory reconsideration ‘show it is just a delaying tactic’
DNS – 16th June 2016 John Pring
Official figures suggest that a new appeal stage introduced for unsuccessful claimants has been little more than a delaying tactic aimed at reducing the number of disabled people claiming benefits, say campaigners.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has finally published statistics showing the impact of the process on claimants of the out-of-work disability benefit employment and support allowance (ESA).
Since October 2013, claimants of ESA and other benefits who want to dispute a decision made on their claim have had to ask DWP to reconsider the decision – a “mandatory reconsideration” (MR) – before they are allowed to lodge an appeal with the independent benefits tribunal system.
And now the first MR figures to be published by DWP show that only about 10 per cent of ESA claimants who appeal through the MR process are successful.

“THE DWP’s LICENSE TO KILL”
“STATE SPONSORED MURDER COVER UP”
Ministers ‘breach FoI laws’ by delaying release of fresh benefit deaths reviews
Ministers are delaying the release of nine secret reviews into the deaths of benefit claimants, even though civil servants apparently prepared them for release three weeks ago under freedom of information laws.
A response to a request to release redacted versions of the documents was completed by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) freedom of information team on 23 May, and just needed official clearance to be released.
But the documents – which are likely to be heavily-redacted versions of the nine reviews – have still not been released to Disability News Service (DNS), three weeks later, in an apparent breach of freedom of information laws.
The reviews cover the period from August 2014 to January 2016, and are likely to be similar in format to the 49 reviews that were released by DWP last month following a 21-month battle with DNS to keep them secret.
DWP is so far refusing to say how many of the nine secret reviews concern a claimant who took their own life.
The latest request was submitted on 15 April, but DNS has been told by DWP’s freedom of information team that a draft response was completed on 23 May – three weeks ago – but has still not been signed off so that it can be released.
A DWP spokeswoman apologised for the delay, but refused to explain why the response had not yet been released.
She said: “We always aim to respond to freedom of information requests within 20 working days – in fact nine out of ten responses are sent within that timescale.
“We will get a response to you in due course.”
Many of the 49 reviews released last month concerned the deaths of disabled people who had applied for the out-of-work disability benefit employment and support allowance (ESA), through the work capability assessment (WCA) process.
And many of the reviews – 40 of which refer to benefit claimants who took their own lives – concerned the reassessment of long-term claimants of incapacity benefit (IB).
Although key parts of the peer reviews were missing because they were so heavily redacted, DNS found 10 key recommendations for DWP to take national action to improve the way it treated vulnerable benefit claimants.
DNS is still waiting to hear from DWP if those 10 recommendations were ever carried out.
The nine peer reviews – now renamed internal process reviews – are likely to be scrutinised closely by disabled activists for further evidence of failings in the way DWP has dealt with benefit claimants labelled as “vulnerable”, many of whom are likely to be mental health service-users or have learning difficulties.
They could provide crucial evidence for calls – led by the Scottish-based grassroots group Black Triangle, and backed by many other disabled activists – for former work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith to face a criminal investigation for misconduct in public office following his refusal to address a coroner’s concerns about the safety of the WCA in 2010.
They want to hold Duncan Smith and his former employment minister Chris Grayling to account for their failure to improve the safety of the WCA, when they were warned that it risked causing further deaths.
Last November, government-funded research concluded that the programme to reassess people claiming IB using the WCA could have caused 590 suicides in just three years

That is what happens in a dictatorship ……. Loads of DWP sanctions at the MP surgeries. Hate breeds hate. Dictatorships live in hate. Dictatorships Disability Hate Crime.
………..A SHAM DEVELOPED BY THE DWP
From: John Slater
16 June 2016
Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I read the following excerpt on the rightsnet discussion forum regarding Mandatory Reconsideration (“MR”):
“Don’t be misled by the fact that the law allows you to lodge these in writing, and think that means that the Dept will therefore receive them, read them and … you know … reconsider.
Oh no. They will just be scanned in and sit there indefinitely in the document imaging system. You have to ring the helpline, as only the helpline can create a ‘task’ and not the post opening scanning person.
…………….WHAT DO YOU EXPECT OF A DEPARTMENT OF SHYSTERS PAVING THE WAY FOR PRIVATE INSURANCE COMPANIES TO POCKET THE WELFARE TREASURE CHEST?”
People who have been sanctioned will now not be able to see their local MP.
DWP has not specified that it is necessary for providers to deploy HPs who are specialists in the
specific conditions or impairments of the individuals they are assessing. Instead, the focus is on
ensuring that the HPs are experts in disability analysis, focusing on the effects of health
conditions and impairments on the individual claimant’s daily life. Both Atos and Capita are
required to ensure that the HPs carrying out assessments have knowledge of the clinical
aspects and likely functional effects of a wide range of health conditions and impairments
“TELL THAT TO THE FAMILIES OF THOSE YOU KILLED YOU MURDERING BASTARDS”
The last ditch effort to get rid of all the disabled, on paper & in life.
“DWP MENTAL HEALTH EXPERTS”
HPs are not required to hold specialist qualifications or experience in mental health conditions.
As part of their induction all HPs receive training in mental health issues, and are required to
read evidence based protocols on mental health conditions. In addition, all healthcare
professionals are required to engage in a programme of continuing medical education which
includes modules on mental health issues.
“IF YOU HAVE READ A BOOK OR DONE A MODULE YOU ARE INSTANTLY AN EXPERT”
THE CEMETERIES ARE BURSTING AT THE SEAMS FROM THIS EXPERT KNOWLEDGE OF THE DISABILITY DENIAL INDUSTRY…….
Only Suicide Training called Suicide Risk Assessment.
“EX DWP CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER, BILL GUNNYEON, CUTS CUSHTY JOB WITH MAXIMUS”
Concern as Maximus recruits former DWP ‘fit for work’ boss
Posted by Melanie Brown on Friday, 09 January 2015 in Disability in the News
The US company that won the lucrative contract to deliver the “fitness for work” test has been forced to defend its decision to employ the former senior civil servant responsible for government policy on the assessment.
The decision of controversial outsourcing giant Maximus to hand consultancy work to Bill Gunnyeon comes just months after he quit his Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) post as chief medical adviser and director for health and well-being.
As part of that brief, he had overall responsibility for policy on the work capability assessment (WCA).
Gunnyeon left DWP in August 2014, after nine years. Two months later, the government announced that Maximus had been awarded a contract to carry out hundreds of thousands of WCAs every year across England, Wales and Scotland, taking over from the equally-controversial Atos Healthcare.
Weeks before Gunnyeon left DWP, Maximus had been handed another contract, this time to deliver the government’s new health and work service in England and Wales.
Together, the two contracts are worth hundreds of millions of pounds to Maximus, although the exact figure is not yet known.
……….ONE MANS GREED, HOW MANY DEATHS SO FAR?
People with a DWP Sanction will be banned from seeing their local MP.
People with a DWP sanction will now not be allowed to appeal the sanction or see their local MP about it. Instead they will be publicly flogged in their local town centre for every day they’re sanctioned. Then they will get no money and be forced to eat grass and drink rain water to survive after all water and power supplies to their house are cut off during the duration of the sanction.
WE WILL MAKE YOU COMPLY AND WORK FOR FREE FOR OUR CORPORATE MATES FOR UP TO OH SAY 60 HOURS PER WEEK.
People with a DWP Sanction will be banned from seeing CAB.
People with a DWP Sanctions are dangerous. Perhaps he killed to get Clothes, Food & Shelter !!!
The disabled death penalty aka Welfare Reform that is a Risk Assessment Insurance Policy.
Everyone that wants to see their local MP now has to go through a flawed medical. MP`s time to sack Maximus – Atos – Capita because there are going to be more killings.
On the streets today a disagreement can mean death. Spouting hate like the politicians do means instant death on the streets. So MP`s do not live on or in the streetz. Hatred from Oxford. Hatred from dictators. Teaching every one well then at £1 million Poundland a year.
36,000 disabled deaths – 1 MP.
What do you have to do to get Food, Clothes & Shelter – Kill.
I would not get G4S it will make it worse in London with the AK47`s & Uzi`s on the streets.
CAMERON – JO COX DEATH IS THE RESULT OF YOUR WAR ON THE SICK & DISABLED
NOW BE A DICTATORSHIP FE REAL.
It will form – already is forming – part of a narrative arc – Ark?. With needless & avoidable loss of life all around.
The DWP run the Police Force in wasting police time. Hunt then down.
Hang Man !!!
A DWP bonus for being a suicide risk assessment.
Reblogged this on Christopher John Ball.
My son is seven and has just lost his DLA, even though nothing has changed with his illness and he previously received high rate care.
When I contacted them for a Mandatory Reconsideration, I was given the reasons why he was declined.
According to a person who has no knowledge of his illnesses, and who has never met him, he is, wait for it, lazy. He “could walk distances, he just doesn’t want to” he ” can run around and make sure he doesn’t eat foods he cant eat, he just doesn’t want to and is willfully refusing”. They didn’t make any attempt to contact his Consultant or GP, or his school, despite my having to give all this information and permission for them to do so. I was also told they would by their phone line, and was told to answer from my point of view as medical evidence would be gathered by them. I was told when I asked for the reconsideration that this was incorrect and they are under no obligation to bother anymore. They also wrote his meds- which make his teeth fall out- are not a big deal. And finally ignored where I said he was up most of the night as one of his illnesses is Restrictive Airway Syndrome, writing instead that he isn’t awake and he could prop himself back up without help, ignoring that his medication makes him dozy and he struggles to breathe. We face losing our home as we gave help paying for his extra bedroom. The Dwp are a disgrace, it will take them 12 weeks plus just for the reconsideration but I now have a month to get as much info as possible to prove that the ignorant person who could have just read the form properly was wrong.
DWP + JCP = SCUM.
What you say Claire is shocking but sadly very common now. The whole ethos of this Tory Government is to slowly eradicate the welfare state and put the whole burden of illness on the family. The Tories are as close to Nazi as you can get, but are a lot smarter or perhaps the correct description would be much more devious. Unlike the Nazi’s in Hitler’s Germany where the state had total control of information, because we still have the remnants of a so called democracy the Tories have to hide their crimes behind a façade of excuses such as Austerity and that people should be responsible for their own welfare. Therefore they cannot murder people in death camps but find other methods such as making life so intolerable for the sick and unemployed that many will be worn down and commit suicide thus helping the Tories to save money but keep their hands appearing clean in the process. Wise people with a conscience can see through the lies but the majority who are greedy and selfish will fall for this Tory rubbish. If the Tories were really keen to live up to the rhetoric they spout about fairness in the benefit system they would go back to relying on reports from peoples GP’s and Consultants instead of fake and failed so called medical experts working for private companies who are anything but professional.
Claire, did you speak to a decision maker, or just one of the call centre staff? I fell for this, the first time I was turned down for DLA. One of the call centre staff told me not to appeal, as there was no point, as I would not win. This was beyond her remit, and welfare rights went mad when I told them about it. Contact CAB or your local welfare rights team and appeal. Don’t give up, no matter how hard and stressful it is, you are right and they are wrong. Good luck hun x
I’m not going to, I’m going all the way on this, I have to go through the Reconsideration first so am now getting every bit of proof possible. I have a daughter who is 16 months older, and to compare the two is ridiculous. He would love nothing more than to be able to run around with friends but he can’t. Laziness doesn’t come into it at all. Thanks for the suggestion to go to Welfare Rights, I’ll find my local one asap.
It might be worthwhile getting in touch with someone at Parliament over this. Also…..it must be understood, alas, that most of these assessors have next to no medical training whatever, and thus, are in no position at all to give any medical opinion at all. That they do so, is a scandal. These ppl really should be prosecuted!
Common with DLA they turned people down until they went for reconsideration and it was then awarded,the gasps of breath down the phone at the other end doesn’t cut.
The important point with PIP is to be prepared to fight,scan all paperwork make sure it gets to where its going and keep proof of postage.Hard proof to false/overlooked claims is hard for them to defend.
DWP + JCP = PURE. FUCKING. EVIL!!
Medicals By Phone = Rules By Default = Not Fit For Purpose.
My daughter is 41, blind, and has learning difficulties. She lives in a supported housing association flat. I am some hours away and am a pensioner without a car most of the time. Despite wonderful support from her aunt, a retired social worker, and a good HA and SW dept, her benefit is being reassessed and is not secure.
I fear for a worsening of the situation if England votes to leave the EU and hands government to Johnson, Gove, IDS et al. My only hope is Scottish independence. Please understand that the SNP is a centre left social Democratic Party, not a right wing nationalist organisation as some English thought seems to paint it.
If you can’t sort out England, and recent events are so depressing, we have to go. FFS don’t keep electing the Tories.
Even if the Labour Party had won every seat in Scotland (joke scenario ) we would still have a Tory majority government in the UK, thanks to the English.
What’s that about?
The Tories are in power because of Cameron promising this referendum, to piss off Farage, and also promising pensioners a ‘triple lock’ on their pensions. He is now threatening to take ‘pensioners perks’ away, to bribe them to vote remain, as he has no intention of letting us leave the EU. It’s looking like half of his MP’s could end up in prison anyway, for breaching spending regulations in the run up to the election
No, nothing to do with promising pensioners a ‘triple lock’ on their pensions. Cameron is in power because Osborne promised to ‘freeze’ ‘working age’ benefits for 4(four) years. A promise which he has stuck true to his word since none of the ‘working age’ benefits received an increase this April which is more than can be said for the poor pensioners who were hammered with an increase in their pensions!
The system is so corrupt that they’ll soon be doing WCA’s via a phone call. If you can answer the phone and speak on it then you’re fit for work and you’ll then get sickness benefit taken off you and forced on to the WRAG where they can beast you into a full working week somewhere for your JSA.
If they run out of cardboard boxes/realise their approach wasn’t scientific enough?!
I’m dreading when I have to totally depend on my family as only a scammer would want me for a job.
Even a crippled slave is of use if free,actually.
Can we honestly say we are surprised??
Tory pigs have no shame….
The guy is clearly unwell.
That’s why the disabled must have next to nothing to live on, we cannot have disabled folks getting their hands on shooters and hiding them in wheelchairs.
A walking stick is a concealed machete and an oxygen tank is a devise to blow up innocent members of the public.
Blue Badges are now banned because they can be thrown like a fris-be, James bond style to slice of peoples heads.
This is new legislation from the UN, issued in the last hour.

“DUNKO THE CLOWN MUST BE TWITCHING”
The most hated man in Britain is still walking the streets with the deaths of countless thousands of claimants notched on his belt.
But for how long i wonder?
Smith is certainly a dead man walking and nobody understands why better than he……….
With the loss of his state sponsored heavies, plain ordinary George will not venture far from home with a penchant for moving abroad very quickly.
The old adage of what goes around, comes around, or karma, has a strange way of manifesting itself, especially on those who deseve it.
Nobody deserves it more than than IAIN DUNCAN SMITH…………..
His demise would add a new dimension to street partying making the wrinkled old bags ninetieth look like a village fete………
Geoff – This has given them all of the M.P.s/Ministers a truly nasty shock.
They are probably thinking – am I going to be the next on the list?
After all, this is the first time that I can ever remember that a sitting M.P. has been cold bloodedly and brutally murdered!
IDS is most likely shaking in his shoes and shitting himself with fear!
Paul – IDS will have heavies and all kinds of security around his sweet self. Unlikely to come into contact with plebby northern assassins, either!
He will probably emigrate to Argentina and live happily ever after……..
While i have sympathy for the disabled and the fake disabled, it was and is never reciprocated towards I, a single unemployed person.
Take Boycott Workfare, never seen then lot on a picket.
Same as council tenants, they never bothered about people in the rip off private sector , but seem to expect me to care about their bedroom tax ”inconvenience” .
The tories and elite cronies like nothing more than the poorest plebs bickering and whining at each other, instead of us all rising up together in a massive protest against the way their policies have rendered us poverty stricken and subject to chasing ever decreasing paid work, which still keeps us in poverty and having to claim benefits – under the conditionality of chasing more and more work, or face sanctions, Divide and rule.
dd – Well said 🙂
Thanks, Paul – I get so pissed at people falling for the old trick. Where’s our spirit of revolt against our enslavement – must be lost in tv and tits as you said on another topic 😦
dd – yes indeed – the revolutionary spirit, has it seems mostly vanished – most of them are blindly sleepwalking into being part of a totalitarian state. If and when it happens, it will be too late to complain or to kick up then! 😦
“THE ST. PETERSBERG FORUM SUMMIT”
“this occurs just as the Swiss government is moving to withdraw the nation’s 1992 application to join the EU”
The St. Petersburg Forum and the World of the Near Future
June 16, 2016 (EIRNS)—The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, running from today through June 18, offers an extraordinary view of where the world is going very soon, if Obama is prevented from blowing it up first. It links together Europe, Eurasia, and every part of Asia, as well as Africa and South America.
As we have noted, Europe is heavily represented despite the sanctions. Italian Prime Minister Renzi is meeting with Putin and is present with a very high-level business delegation, which is reported to have signed $1.4 billion in agreements with Russia. EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is there, as are former French President Sarkozy and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon. Six leaders of big German firms are speaking in a panel on German-Russian cooperation, along with EU Commissioner Gunther Oettinger; Germany’s top Russia expert, Alexander Rahr, is featured on another panel. A panel on Russia-Switzerland cooperation includes top corporate officials and an official of the Swiss Foreign Ministry; this occurs just as the Swiss government is moving to withdraw the nation’s 1992 application to join the EU, after a vote to that effect by both houses of the Swiss Parliament.
Some top Chinese businessmen are featured in the opening panels on the Group of 20 and another panel on China’s “New Economic Model.” A Russia-Africa panel includes the President of Guinea and ministers from four other African nations. A Russia-Japan panel includes six senior business executives and a vice-minister. A Panel “Russia-India: A New Stage in Economic Partnership,” includes four top Indian executives. There are two panels on Russia-Latin America cooperation, which together represent most South American nations. There is a BRICS panel with businessmen from every member nation; a Eurasian Economic Union panel; and a panel of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Business Forum. An Iran panel is titled “Life After Sanctions: Re-Integrating Iran into the Global Economy.”
The final panel is on “Russia-Bangladesh: An Era of New Opportunities.”
The principal US representative in St. Petersburg is the Chairman-CEO of ExxonMobil.

`When completing a Personal Independence Payments application form, claimants can name

“NON PAYMENT OF COUNCIL TAX IS A CIVIL OFFENCE BUT OFFENDERS ARE BEING JAILED ON INSTRUCTIONS FROM JUDGES SITTING IN MAGISTRATES COURTS”
EXTRACT FROM WIKIPEDIA
A civil penalty or civil fine is a financial penalty imposed by a government agency as restitution for wrongdoing. The wrongdoing is typically defined by a codification of legislation, regulations, and decrees. The civil fine is not considered to be a criminal punishment, because it is primarily sought in order to compensate the state for harm done to it, rather than to punish the wrongful conduct. As such, a civil penalty, in itself, will not carry jail time or other legal penalties.

ATOS ? Have I missed something? My last assessment was carried out by MAXIMUS. I’m bipolar and obtained precisely zero points. This was (eventualy) overturned by the Tribunal who threw out Maximus’s utter crap and actually increased my benefits. Where does ATOS come into it these days? Please explain.
Why does someone with ‘bipolar’ need any ££££s anyway? It is one of the Great Unsolved Mysteries of the Universe. At least with ‘bipolar’ you have ‘highs’ to counteract the ‘lows’. If you were on the pittance that is JSA and all the attendant crap it comes with you would have nothing but ‘lows’. And how do you get to be put on it anyway? Most of us have up-down days, but we are not all on ‘disability’.
Why does anyone need any ££££s anyway? !!!!!
Stepping, I can offer a good home for all your unwanted ££££s 😀
So speaks someone who has absolutely no clue about mental health. Not for nothing Lucy but maybe you should refrain from commenting when it’s plain you don’t have a clue about the subject you’re talking about?
You can’t argue with stupid.
“Thomas Mair, 46, started volunteering at the park after learning about the opportunity through the Mirfield-based Pathways Day Centre for adults with mental health problems.
He said: “I can honestly say it has done me more good than all the psychotherapy and medication in the world. “Many people who suffer from mental illness are socially isolated and disconnected from society, feelings of worthlessness are also common mainly caused by long-term unemployment.
“All these problems are alleviated by doing voluntary work.
“Getting out of the house and meeting new people is a good thing, but more important in my view is doing physically demanding and useful labour.
“When you have finished there is a feeling of achievement which is emotionally rewarding and psychologically fulfilling.
“For people for whom full-time, paid employment is not possible for a variety of reasons, voluntary work offers a socially positive and therapeutic alternative.””
I wonder how the department of mind fuckery and pensions will spin this.
Shame he “allegedly” brutally murdered somebody whilst doing something positive for the community.
He could have been a poster boy for the DWP regarding “Workfare”.
Yeah but, no but….Yeah but……..
This must be why Government workfare programmes are always physically demanding labour – like stacking heavy pallets of timber, toiling in ‘recycling’ plants, sorting through shitty knickers in ‘charity’ shops. Because it is ‘good’ for the victims – they just don”t realise it.

@ ‘Thomas’s Story
I have been on both sides of the coin, claiming JSA and now back finally in full time work. Previously mentioned here by me, I’m getting a decent wage through stacking cut timber planks ready for processing elsewhere within the factory complex I work at. (Company name with-held).
On the JSA side however through those w4nkers SEETEC I was in a sh1tty paint recycling depot – CCORRN in March, Cambs – ( to name and shame the c8nt-4sred tw4t of a manager there) back in late 2014 to ‘enhance my employability potential’.
By me being back in work of a legit f/t paying job that suits me proves that every single work training programme and placement I have ever been through since leaving secondary school has been proven by my job as a complete waste of my f9cking time, skills and employability status. So here to Seetec, A4E, Papworth trust, jobcentre, DWP and YTS and every place that took me as work placement simply F9CK OFF and thanks for nothing you absolute c5nts.
The whole New Deal, work programme system is a f8cking scam designed to make people un-employable and with no hope. I beat the system by finding work myself through my OWN means and never through Jobcentre b0ll0cks.

In ‘ash for cash’, doctors are now receiving payments of approximately £85 for signing death certificates with a priority for cremation. The very cremation which always ties up so many ends so neatly – evidence of foul play in particular. Bring in the private cremation companies that now offer ‘bed to ash’ services – collection, certificates, formalities and cremation – with or without any involvement of next of kin or friends, and end of life disposal has become very neat, tidy and profitable.
Against this background of failure and suspect death pathways, and with governments that fail us so badly during life, can we trust the government to organise our end of life care at any stage?
I think not. The evidence I see leads me to suspect that whilst eating our chocolate, we should consider that Britain’s government driven death cult does not have our best interests and long lives at heart. Increasingly it appears they want a far tidier and more cost effective solution to those individuals who are no longer able to generate corporate profit.
Very neat and tidy. Chaotic in life? Have a Tory Tidy

“AMBULANCE PARAMEDICS JUMP SHIP TO EARN HUGE BONUS PAYMENTS FOR DISABILITY DENIAL PARASITES OF CAPITA, ATOS AND MAXIMUS” (THE DISABILITY EXTERMINATORS OF THE DWP0
DYING and gravely ill patients in large swathes of Co Down are being forced to wait up to an hour and a half for an ambulance after resignations and reduced hours have pushed the service to breaking point.
With the introduction of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to replace Disability Living Allowance later this month, paramedics are increasingly being lured to become assessors by a private company.
“Capita is the Assessment Provider for PIP in Northern Ireland and, in line with requirements, is continuing to actively recruit Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Paramedics to carry out PIP assessments in Northern Ireland on behalf of the Department for Communities,” a Stormont spokeswoman confirmed to the Irish News.
It has already seen four paramedics leave the profession to take up roles as assessors.

Hospital wards shutting due to nursing shortages – the NHS this week
By Richard Grimes
The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust has said that due to staff shortages a geriatric ward at the rehabilitation hospital is to close, resulting in the loss of 24 beds.
A recruitment day organised in Midhurst by the NHS has gone some way to finding nurses after a staff shortage led to the closure of the Bailey Unit at Midhurst Community Hospital.
Dorset Healthcare has said that the current shortage of nurses at the Bridport Community Hospital means that only 24 of the 38 beds are currently open.
United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust say that maternity services will be “unsustainable” at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston due to staff shortages and difficulty in attracting doctors to the area.
Bradford Royal Infirmary will close Ward 2, an elective and acute surgery ward for children, over weekends due to a shortage of nurses. The trust says it has a shortfall of 22 qualified nurses across its three paediatric wards.
Sexual health, care and drug services provided by Staffordshire County Council are all expected to be hit by cuts, in an attempt to make up a £15 million funding shortfall in the county’s plan for the Better Care Fund.

In fact, the whole ‘Royal Family’ acted very strangely after the event. No wonder they leave themselves open to ‘conspiracy theories’.

“DWP SHARES YOUR PERSONAL MEDICAL INFORMATION WITH “PHYSIO WORLD”
………….ATOS’s NEW HIDING PLACE FROM THE WELFARE MORTALITY RATES…
12 May 2016
Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I have recently been asked to attend a PIP medical. When I arrived at the centre, 2 Queen Caroline Street, London, W6, Regus House I found that ATOS (or any of it’s sub companies) was not known there. Since this address can be rented by the day, the receptionist called a few offices and found a renter called PHYSIO WORLD LTD, who claims to be acting on the DWP’s behalf, would be carrying out the PIP assessment . Can you please confirm or deny whether or not this company is acting as a sub contractor to ATOS IT (trading as ATOS Healthcare) because on the invitation letter it clearly said ATOS HEALTHCARE on behalf of the DWP, or if the DWP has a contract with PHYSIO WORLD LTD directly to carry out these assessments?
Can you please clarify why and exactly which of my personal sensitive medical data (I have an illness that automatically qualifies me as disabled under the Equality Act 2000) is being shared with PHYSIO WORLD Ltd, Company number 09805028, a private ltd company that has been incorporated on the 1 October 2015, and has yet to declare their ‘nature of business’ and has not yet filed accounts ?
Can you tell me whether or not the DWP has a contract with this private Ltd company ‘Physio world’ newcomer, who has a limited liability of £1? How much is ‘Physio World’ paid per PIP consultation.

Sian, thank you for posting that. I was unaware of it. What a fucking state to be in. ALL politicians should hang their heads in shame. subsidised food and drink, expenses….while some of the nations children go hungry. Revolting – and we should revolt against it.
What’s quite annoying in this referendum campaign is how Corbyn is clearly going against what he really believes in order to keep other Labour MP’s on his side. He was always against being a member of the EU as far as i’m lead to believe. Now overnight he has a complete change of heart and believes in remaining in! Complete BS from Corbyn. More reasons for me not to vote Labour again. Can change life long principles at the drop of a hat! Pretty bad all round.
Don’t worry raining, nobody will be voting for anyone if we stay in the EU, Westminster will be a distant memory, democracy will have gone out of the window along with Cameron, Corbyn, Boris and the other painted on smiles. Once the cigar chewing slugs have settled on which regions belong where, and which Mafia Bosses (Local Mayors) will be selected by the unelected to keep us underfoot……all will be tickety boo.
Oh and G4S to make sure we all toe the line, everyone will have a curfew and no one will be allowed on the streets after 9pm.
After a couple of years we will end in the same situation as South America, scraping rubbish bins and living in tents, as the DWP will be a money making corporate machine feeding the cigar chewing slugs.
Nobody will get fuck all.
Corbyn knows this, the man is lower than a snakes belly.
We will look back on these times as the golden years, but at least I can tell my grandchildren that ….I tried.
The sage – your last line was very poignant. I am a grandmother and worry about the world my grandchild has inherited. I, too, try to put the word out about what would make a more equitable society. Actually, three words. Universal Basic Income.
Isn’t Corbyn a member of the Socialist Fabian Society?
Not sure! But Jezza is a member of the Flying Saucer Society!
Always looks good on the CV… 😉
Sage: yes all very true. Lost all respect for Corbyn now that he’s kicked his principles into the long grass in order to pacify the baying hounds that wanted him out. He was always Euro sceptic now he wants us to remain in this absolute Euro farce. The only people, this EU suits is corporate creeps who see it as a way to keep making money. it’s all about £$£$ at the end of the day.
Plus don’t get me started on Cameron! That speech he gave today was the most ignorant, stupid, scaremongering thing i’ve ever heard. So we the UK are so small, so insignificant and unable to rule and govern ourselves that our and other generations to come futures depend on us being in the EU? What the hell does that say about us as a country then? We’ve not exactly been governed prudently have we if that’s the long and short of it?
I voted leave and think anyone who wants us to remain in this diabolical farce needs certified!
It would be a *lot* more interesting to see what would happen if we did vote to Leave. In referendums the Government doesn’t have to “respect the wishes of the electorate” much in the same way that a judge doesn’t have to follow the recommendations of a jury. Suspect that the Government would ignore a Leave vote. We could end up in the situation in Eire where the Government kept calling a referendum until the electorate voted the “correct” way. There is already provision for this up until the end of 2017.

if that silly tw1t Camorom and his gormless chum didn’t want us to leave the EU and is scaremongering us into thinking jobs and shop prices will go up if we do, why did he insist we have the referendum in the first place?
Fen – Probably because he strongly feared that he was going to be ‘upstaged’ by UKIP & Nigel Farage gaining more and more votes.
If it wasn’t for Farage & UKIP – there would, most likely never have been a referendum even suggested by Cameron!

Jobcentre issues ILLEGAL “Jobseeker’s Direction”
“YOUR JOBSEEKERS ALLOWANCE/NATIONAL INSURANCE CREDITS COULD BE STOPPED FOR A PERIOD OF TIME IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY”
THIS IS CLEARLY A BREACH OF THE LAW BY THE DWP.
Duress in the context of contract law is a common law defence brought about when one of the parties to the contract enjoyed an ascendant position in relation to the other party and abused that position by subjecting the other to threats. A party who has entered into a contract under duress is entitled to rescind or set aside the contract, rendering it voidable (in equity).
Duress has been defined as a “threat of harm made to compel a person to do something against his or her will or judgment; esp., a wrongful threat made by one person to compel a manifestation of seeming assent by another person to a transaction without real volition”. – Black’s Law Dictionary (8th ed. 2004)
Duress in contract law falls into two broad categories:
Physical duress, and

It’s not often I come here now. But when I do come I always learn. I doff my hat to those who continually complain and draw to readers attention the corruption and graft that is going on. It’s diabolical that medical professions seem to be colluding in shafting genuine claimants and people with disabilities. Still,30 pieces of silver and the threat of putting them out of biz usually is enough to make them hold their noses as they sign,or don’t sign,the death certificates for the DWP
I don’t see much news these days about ATOS/Maximus graft and corruption. I don’t think anyone is interested. That,or no one is interested because the media don’t want to mention it.
I don’t think the MPs murder will excite any interest in mental health problems. That argument will be shut down because the liberal elite want the blood of Farage,whether you’re sympathetic to Farage or dislike him. Those with disabilities are to be excised,put down,euthanised,culled. I salute all commentators on here: most/all know how the sytsem operates. My bemusement comes from the people who operate the closed flow charts of ATOS/Maximus: How do they go home with a clear conscience? What do they tell their partners or friends. I guess they’re fed that those who are disabled in some form,weak,sick,old,are scum. Then take the bonus at the end of the week. Sick!
In time these b*stards will be weak, sick and old – how will they like it when they get called scum, oh well what goes around comes around serve them right I say.
Mr. Comb-over’s latest speech –
Vote Leave in the EU Referendum otherwise we will lose more power and tax control to those un-elected fools in Brussels.
I agree Fen. Everyone please get out tomorrow and vote LEAVE while there’s still something of our country that can be salvaged. Vote to remain and you hand all our futures to a bunch of corporate euro creeps who think of one thing only: How to screw as much money out of Joe Public as they can.

……………..HENCE THE SPIRALLING BODY COUNT
More than 100,000 over-50s heading towards retirement are set to receive a letter informing them they are not entitled to a single penny of the new state pension.
The Government has agreed to send out the letters over concerns tens of thousands of Britons are reaching retirement age and may not realise that they can’t depend on receiving a state pension.
The move comes after a group of MPs raised serious concerns about people’s bewilderment about the new state pension, which will leave anyone with fewer than ten qualifying years of National Insurance contributions ineligible for any state pension at all.
Confusion is likely to be heightened by the fact there was a 10-year minimum rule until 2010, when it was abolished, and now it is being reinstated again.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I would like to know why i was removed from esa without a mental health welfare check being carried out before the decision was made which the dwp should try to do three times before completely stopping my money and leaving me in genuine hardship, in effect breaking your own rules as i am in a support group and even though i have explained this error to several different dwp departments the decision isn’t reversed even though dwp know they have broken their own esa rules
DWP + JCP = SCUM.
There’s still time to get your tickets.
The EU referendum boils down to the following: if you have a good job, a business (particularly one which relies on cheap labour), property, investments… you are better off in the EU. But if you have fuck all and have to compete for shitty jobs and social housing, any sort of housing you are better out off the EU. The poor are being hammered to fuck in this country. You have to ask yourself: would remaining in the EU going to improve the lot of the poor? Or will the poor be exploited regardless! Would leaving the EU improve the lot of the poor? It’s open to debate: but it is certainly true to say that if you are in the bottom economic strata in the UK life is really shitty and getting shitter by the day. Leaving the EU would definitely be a huge kick in the teeth for the moneyed classes.
No way! You are way off target! The EU guarantees many workers rights that the “Leave Tories” want to get rid of if they can get us out of the EU. On the other hand the EU is not democratic in that unelected commissioners can put forward legislation but MEP’s cannot. We also don’t have anything to crow about when it comes to democracy what with the House of Lords (Cronies) and the Royal Family (farce). I want us to leave the EU for the “right” reasons, to restore at least a figment of democracy for the people, but the only way to do that is also to get rid of the Tories and put in a real socialist government that will redistribute the wealth from the rich to the poor, build social housing rented at affordable rates and save our NHS by undoing all the sneaking privatisation that both New Labour (traitors) and the Tories have been implementing over the last 30 years. Getting rid of Cameron through an out vote only replaces him with the hard right of the Tories and that means even more suffering for the sick, poor and unemployed. If you believe Gove, Johnson and his motley crew will put money saved from EU withdrawal in to the NHS then you have fallen for the biggest con job in history. What we are in for when/if we vote out is more severe suffering in the short term unless we kick the Tories out as well.
Socialism always leads to Communism….
Your right, or is it left.
There is no such thing as Socialism, or Capitalism, only money and power pushed forward by huge egos, and a lot of blackmail.
Labour and Tory are the same, the left have always been funded by the right, IMO Corbyn set himself up as the sacrificial lamb to pave the way for Boris.
To base votes on what voodoo politicians and fake celebs say is frankly foolish, look at what the EU was set up for in the first place.
The EU have never deviated from its roots, way back in the 30s.
Socialism + Communism = New World Order – fact !
No not fact! You try joining a Masonic Lodge as a member of the communist party and they will show you the door. I know members of this cult that are part of the NWO and they are staunch Capitalists one and all. The NWO is not socialist or communist but a Satanic cult that will try to unite the whole world under one dictator the Anti-Christ and one world religion that will contain elements of all religions except Christianity. I reckon you must have been reading a junk USA website to come to your conclusion. In the USA even claiming to want to help the poor or set up a welfare state is seen as Communist.
So what’s your answer then Sage? Just keep moaning and let the Tories dismantle the welfare state whilst doing nothing. The labour party may have lost it’s way after the New Labour experiment but they are the only hope for the poor and downtrodden in this country. Jeremy Corbyn will struggle to get elected, not because he is stupid but that he is of the left, and the right wing British media will use any underhand method to smear him and stop his election. After all the only thing the rich worry about is having to pay more tax to look after the less fortunate, the greedy bastards!
Please tell me why Gordon Brown praised the NWO in his speeches?
Yes please do, as we know Gordon Brown is NWO clone who parties at Bohemian Grove and takes part in child ritual sacrifice….
Yes Gordon Brown! New Labour, not Socialist but Capitalist who bailed out the banks when they should have let them go bust. Who also supported Austerity and was Tony Blair’s sidekick. Can you imagine someone like Dennis Skinner praising the NWO. Don’t you lot get it yet? The so called New Labour project was designed to hijack a whole political movement and place it in the hands of the Capitalists and that’s what happened and that’s why the Real Labour grass roots members rejected New Labour and voted overwhelmingly and against the establishment to put Jeremy Corbyn in as leader. And that’s also why the establishment and the right wing media smears Corbyn and paints him as an idiot so that suckers like you don’t vote for him and the establishment gets the government it wants to keep the rich elite in power. If people don’t wake up we will have Tory governments for the rest of the century. So enjoy your benefit cuts and visits to the food bank and your slave labour low paid jobs or wake up and get the Tories out and Labour in, so they can start to reverse the Tory cuts. Has it never entered your minds why the Tories like to make sure you don’t get a good education, good healthcare, and good job security. It’s quite simple really, they keep you occupied full time just trying to survive and you can’t resist as you would if you had security and time to fight back.
Well in that case Violette s you had better get used to being treated as a slave to the wealthy, forever, because only Socialism is dedicated to the redistribution of wealth. Maybe you should read about British history before the Labour Party and Trade Unions were established and see what it was like for the poor then. My Grandfather explained to me what his childhood was like in those days and it was much worse for the poor than it is now and it only improved when the Labour Governments started to tax the rich and set up the welfare state and the NHS.
Truth Teller, are you saying we live in a democracy and our votes make a difference?Our votes are worthless, its the elite who decide who shall be in power, after all if our votes did make a difference they wouldn’t let us do it!
Doilewood, You need to read my posts carefully! I do not believe we live in a perfect democracy and yes of course the “elite” manipulate it. That was why the “elite” were so pissed off when Labour rank and file members elected Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn has been a thorn in their side for years and they know he is a threat to their easy existence. They will do anything to stop him as they know if he gets power the rich will have to start paying a fair share of the tax burden and will have to give workers full rights with an end to zero hours enslavement. They are shitting themselves and that is why they are funding the Blairite right wing traitors to overthrow Corbyn so they can bring back the New Labour fakes. A real Socialist Labour Party that will give rights to the poor and reduce homelessness and restore the welfare state fills them with fear. It’s hard to manipulate workers who feel secure. The Tories need people to be desperate so they can control them and exploit them.
lol at the fat fascist Nicola Sturgeon stood beside the orange plane* as it prepared to take another load of ‘holidaymakers’ to Amsterdamned telling us that if we vote Leave it will mean the end of our cheap flights and we will need a Kremlin visa personally signed by Vladimir Putin and whole of the Politburo to enter or leave the UK. Pity she didn’t get sucked into those jet engine – that would have given yet another new hairstyle.
One thing i can’t understand about Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP in general: Why do they want to break away from the rest of the UK to be an independent country making their own decisions while at the same time wanting to remain a member of the EU where half it’s laws and policies are going to be made?!!!! That question has never been answered .
I voted for independence but the reason was because i was so fed up with Tory austerity and Labour colluding in it with them to shaft the ordinary person in the street. That’s the reason i voted YES. Not because i want to break away from the rest of the UK. If there was a decent socialist Labour party fighting for the rights of ordinary people instead of sucking up to bankers and big business i wouldn’t vote SNP!
“MAXIMUS, THE SCUM BAGS OF PLANET EARTH”
…………..FUNDED BY THE LIVES OF THOSE THEY ROB ON BEHALF OF THE DWP
Imagine you have to attend a test which is going to decide if you have enough money to live on – or not. You don’t really understand exactly how they are going to make the decision. But you do know that growing numbers of people are failing the test and getting their income stopped.
Of course a lot of Bella readers don’t have to imagine this. Anyone can become ill or develop a health condition. Thousands of people in Scotland have to go through the so-called Work Capability Assessments which decide whether or not they are going to be awarded the sickness/ disability benefit Employment Support Allowance.
Your GP or specialist has said you are not fit for work – this counts for nothing. Your future will be decided by a private company with a brief to kick claimants off sickness benefits. The tests are run by the private company Maximus on behalf of the DWP – Maximus took over from the notorious ATOS, but little has changed bar the corporate logo. Attend any jobcentre and you will see plenty of people clearly incapable of working who Maximus have miraculously cured…..
So imagine you’ve got to go to the test, at the Maximus assessment centre. Your health conditions include mental health issues. Your anxiety and stress is through the roof.
But you find a welfare rights organisation. A worker there knows the rules and can accompany you. They are on your side. You are no longer facing this on your own.
You go to the assessment centre with your advocate.
But the Maximus people say your advocate can’t accompany you.
They claim that he’s barred from the building – “on police advice”.
Your advocate points out that everyone has the basic human right to be accompanied, by an advocate of their own choice, to Work Capability Assessments – or indeed any benefits interview.
Leave or we call the police, Maximus tell your advocate. You can still have your appointment, but someone else can be your accompanist, Maximus tell YOU.
Now you really are in a panic. You trust your advocate, you can’t just change your representative at the last-minute. You and your advocate agree to leave together, and get the appointment re-scheduled for later.
As your advocate starts to leave Maximus employees try to slam the door shut behind him, to trap you in the building without him, to pressurise you to go through the test there and then.
You manage to get out of the assessment centre. Then the police come and arrest your advocate.
Important welfare powers are being devolved. We need to make it clear to the Scottish government that if this is to mean anything the DWP and all the private companies milking the poverty industry must be told that claimants have an absolute right to be accompanied by their own advocate.
This nightmare happened to a woman claiming Employment and Support Allowance in Dundee, witnesses told Dundee Sheriff Court on 9 June. Witnesses recounted events when Fiona attended the Maximus Assessment Centre at Caledonian House Dundee on 15th November last year. Maximus refused to permit her advocate, Tony Cox, an activist with the Scottish Unemployed Workers Network, to accompany her and called the police. Dr Cox was arrested and held overnight in police cells.
Now Tony is in Dundee Sheriff Court again this Thursday 23 June on charges of threatening behaviour (the court heard that he argued with Maximus employees the claimant had the right to be accompanied). Solidarity demonstrators from Scottish Unemployed Workers Network, Dundee Against Austerity, Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty, Glasgow Anarchist Collective, the Action Against Austerity network and more will be at the court.
When Tony was in court two weeks ago there was not only a court demo but solidarity demos at jobcentres round Britain, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, Doncaster, and Cardiff.
WATCH: Anne Tvinnereim, Deputy Leader of the Norwegian Centre Party, recalls the scaremongering that was heard before her country’s last referendum on EU membership. Sound familiar?
“They said we would lose 100,000 jobs. They said the biggest businesses would leave Norway and there would be no more investment. They said the interest rates would increase significantly. They even made a calculation that every Norwegian family would lose £3,000. They said we would be totally isolated if we did not join the EU – they wouldn’t want to trade with us and we would have no negotiating power whatsoever. We would be a small, isolated island up in the north with no influence”.
“And of course, it was ALL RUBBISH!”
She’s right: the year after Norway said no to the EU, unemployment went down and investment went up!
UK Government to warn 100,000 people who won’t get New State Pension
……………..Which in turn makes you wonder if this mass of human beings will be left penniless or will the state make up for the deficit in welfare payments.
Strangely, if the latter was to prevail, it would cast doubt on the primary function of having to make payment to a pension fund in the first instance…..
But will the state sit back and watch people die?
Of course it will, they are doing this as we speak…………………
…………….and these comments from Cameron and the DWP show their ignorance of being poor and the prospects of a retirement of hell……..
“It is vital that this group understands this as early as possible rather than facing a shock at state pension age. Some may be able to take steps to improve their retirement prospects either through paying extra voluntary NI contributions or by contributing to a workplace or private pension.
A Department for Work and Pensions spokesperson said: “We’re committed to being transparent about any changes to the state pension.
Levinas • 15 hours ago
Just tried the Check your State Pension service myself and by the third page it registered a fault, blank page, go no further. All the cash this shower tax us to provide gov and they can’t even get thier own sites to run properly. Its almost like they don’t want us to know anything
………………….THE MUSHROOM TREATMENT
DWP Assisted Suicide.
DWP charged with DWP Assisted Suicide.
………..all this rhetoric in the media of what foods to eat has no significance whatsoever to those who are only just able to eat.
You can be forgiven thinking that the government are concerned about our health till you analyse the many thousands living hand to mouth from food banks that never scrutinise the small print on the label, hurriedly scoffing to ease the hunger pangs.
We might have a plethora of advanced health technology and solutions to reaching far away galaxies but no answer to people huddled in doorways, cold, wet and freezing, wrapped in cardboard……………..
If the Referendum leave vote wins tomorrow –
*The Stranglers “Big Thing Coming”
Police called as woman hands PEN to EU referendum voters as rigging fears…………
……….ALLO, ALLO, ALLO, WHAT HAVE WE HERE?
If the Referendum remain vote wins tomorrow
The Specials “Ghost Town extended version”
I’m dreading waking up tomorrow in case we’re still in the vile dictatorship which is the EU. God help us if we’re still in.
Dont worry folks, if we’re still in the enslavement union tomorrow, which i strongly suspect we will be, all we need to do come the next general election is for all of us to vote LABOUR, and because elections arn’t rigged they will become our new glorious leaders and rescue us from all the shit that has befallen us!
Had to laugh when I saw this!
Breaking News from Sky: “84 Conservative ‘OUT’ MPs have sent letter to Downing St saying PM has mandate to continue”
As far as I am aware, Gove, Grayling, IDS & Priti Patel have all signed it.
(No change there then – just more of pig-fuck Cameron)!
However, after all of the verbal vitreolic poison that a lot of ‘them’ have hurled towards him, what a bunch of turncoat and treacherous bastards they really are! Never trust an ‘MP’ or a ‘Minister’ with anything of your’s (or their word(s))!
And the result of the EU Referendum is not even known yet!
6 or 7 am
No matter what the result, the EU Ref has had the desired effect the government wanted.
To divide the country, cause mayhem within families and split friendships !!
In other news.
Drug addicts should be given free heroin on the NHS say doctors:
Medics also want to be allowed to supervise users in ‘shoot-up’ galleries in towns where dependency is high.
Motion to give free heroin passed by British Medical Association yesterday
They are lobbying for ‘heroin-assisted treatment’ and ‘consumption rooms’
Claim it would reduce crime, prevent spread of HIV and reduce drug deaths
Anti-drug campaigners say it ‘defies belief’ and just helps addicts fuel habit
EU referendum: First Scottish results declared.
The result of the UK-wide referendum is expected at around breakfast time.
The first English count to declare was Newcastle, which backed Remain by a very narrow margin of 1%.
One thing i’ve deduced from the votes from up here in Scotland: My fellow Scots have lost their balls and are scared shitless at the thought of leaving the EU. Sad as f–k. The guys from England have well and truly shown the guts and balls to turn our country back into what it should be. Sad to say but most of my fellow Scots are a bunch of pussies and make me feel ashamed to be Scottish..
Aye, for all their haggis-munching, whisky-swilling, hard talk the Jocks have no balls. Too scared of wee Nicola? It is the poor of England and Wales who have given the Establishment a great, big kick in the balls. As a Labour MP said: “The poor are sick of the immigration, zero hours contracts. They are sick of it”. It will be very interesting to see what happens now. We live in interesting times.
LEAVE _____ 51.8%
Well said Geordie Lass. Today as a Scotman i want to salute the people of England and Wales who had the grit and balls to say that things have to change. Scotland as a nation should be ashamed of itself and it’s clear the SNP monopoly that’s going on up here has turned people’s brains to mush.
I for one will never vote for SNP again as they are a hypocritical party. They want to split from the rest of the UK, which is fine i have no problem with that. But then by the same token they want to be governed by Brussels!!! What’s that crap all about? What kind of independence is that?
So happy today that we’ve voted LEAVE. A great day for Britain.
David Cameron has taken a shotgun to this country and calmly walked away.
That’s a psychopath for you.
“NOT QUITE THERE YET”…………………………..
Before we can leave the EU money builder strategy for the select few, we need to clear another few hurdles………..
First of these hurdles is parliamentary backing for our exit.
Already, in the background can be heard the derision of the Israeli money men who control the City of London and all global financial markets.
They will be calling in their IOU’s from our parliamentarians who are but mere glove puppets to the banks and hedge funds.
A last ditch attempt to scupper the democratic voice of our people will be played out in the halls of Westminster, another barrage of what could happen if we continue………………..
Wallets have been rattled and the owners are revolting, just about as revolting as you could get, presumably…………….
Meanwhile the falling pound and stock market indeces have so far, had no effect on the daily running of the food banks, Britains fastest expanding industry since the second world war.
“Oh how the mighty fall”
…………and as for Cameron, just another piece of dog shit from the side of my shoe……….
……………..and what about the hundred million quid or whatever we were supposed to give the NHS if an exit was forthcoming?
All wind and piss because it does not suit the agenda of the private health insurance companies that now run the DWP………
………..AND ALL DAVID CAMERON’S LITTLE PIGGIES ARE SAYING, “ME, ME, ME”, AS THE CHANCE OF RUNNING THE COUNTRY COMES UP FOR GRABS………………
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM AS LOATHESOME AS HANNIBAL LECTER.
AND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM AS DIVISIVE AS THE NEXT, FOLLOWING THE TRADITIONS OF THE ETONIAN ELITE OF THE TRUE ARYAN BROTHERHOOD WHO EXTERMINATES THOSE AS IT SEES FIT.,
NAMELY, THE POOR, THE DISABLED AND THE VERY WEAKEST.
Geoff – You are correct – unless something really dramatic happens now – I really fear that the ‘original’ gang of 5 – namely Boris Johnson, Grayling, Gove, IDS & Priti Patel (unless something really dramatic happens otherwise) will (with other hard right-wingerTories too) be put into positions of ‘POWER’ All of these have massive egos and they want to rule, often at any cost. I am sure now that the UK (apart from Scotland) will be slowly turned more and more right wing, becoming ever insular – and then, when we do eventually finally exit the EU in a few years time – then there is a real risk of this country becoming a right-wing dictatorship.
Your jobs may not be any safer, most probably the ‘welfare reform’ and benefits crackdowns will most probably not become less – they will (in my own opinion) become even more cruel and unrelenting.
In Europe may have been bad, but under an even more right-wing Tory administration (without any European ‘shackles’) – it will most probably become a lot worse, especially for the poor, the low-paid workers, worker’s rights and last, but, by no means the very least, the sick & the disabled. All the arseholes are still there – all they need now is to be given the POWER to finally deliver the further up and coming Tory cruel policies.
Cameron may be going, but will the new administration get rid of VAT on energy bills? – I doubt it! Farage, shortly after the result has distanced himself from the ‘£350m per wk going into the EU’ and denying he ever said about that particualar ‘saved’ money being paid into the NHS.
Politicians – who would trust them!
Paul – Just said that energy bills limits will be scrapped. So now they can charge what they want since the energy companies are European.
£200 Billion spent today. FTSE worse than 2008 & the £ worse than 2008. Recession on Monday. Political Suicide. DWP Political Suicide.
Stepping – Exactly! All of the money that has been lost on this ‘City Black Friday’ to the Companies and ‘traders’ will have to be recouped somehow. It will not be from the millionairres, the billionairres or the ‘oligarks’ – it will I suspect be from the ‘poor’ as per usual!
And,yes I agree, highly likely to be a recession now – more austerity and belt-tightening will follow – if there has not already been enough!
(Breaking News Sky – Margaret Hodge (Labour) is launching a Motion of No Confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. Also Nicola Sturgeon is warning of the likelihood of a second ‘Independence’ Referendum for Scotland)
This is a fast moving situation – likely with more to come during today!
The sky is falling….but not raining pennies on the poor – we should do the decent thing and allow ourselves to be washed away down the drains following the deluge of uncertainty caused by the firm out vote.
dd – unfortunately – after all of this I fear that many of the poor will be totally destitute. The ETONIAN ELITE will be fine, but everyone else – well, they will all have to look after themselves the very best that they can!
A Anti Cameron Vote. Cameron thinks his shares in Atos, Maximus & Capita is more important.
1 Trillion £ being spent today to save the UK.
Tax payers being ripped off. Recession.
Testing – DWP Assisted Suicide.
The Leave Leaders have never done a days work in their life. Lazy sods.
Political Chaos. 32,000 DWP Deaths.
The Jap index (Nikkei) is actually up at the moment. Panic over!

Thanks a lot for your interesting article. I have been searching for such message for a very long time. Not all your content is completely clear to me, even though it is definitely interesting and worth reading.
