The Tory government is a crime against the humanity of the nation

Reading this, and knowing that every word printed is the truth, I could weep with my own rage at what this dispicable government are doing to us all!

Fear and loathing in Great Britain

despicablea

I’ve just transferred some money across to my nieces bank account because she’s gone overdrawn because she hasn’t been paid this month. I did it not just because I care about her, but because I am raging angry, because we always pay, even after we bailed the banks out, we always pay, and bank charges, in particular, drive me incoherent with rage.

You name it, we pay, always. Taxes, excise duties on fuel and the like, passports and driving licences, VAT, bank charges, instant fines, school fines, refuse and waste fines if we put our refuse out in the wrong way, parking charges, including hospital parking charges, even for beleaguered staff, and monster fines if we get it wrong or forget for any reason. Late payment fines for bills. Bailiff charges and court charges and fines for even the most minor transgressions. Government sanctions, and loss of the means of…

Watchtower Kicks Off 2018 With an Unabashed, Embarrassing Plea for Money

All of this was a recent discovery for me, and it sickens me that so many genuine people are being bilked of their hard-earned money, their property, their jewellery, their savings – while the Governing Body live the High Life in the new Headquarters! 😦

JWVICTIMS.ORG

Jehovah’s Witnesses often like to brag that they don’t pass collection plates during their meetings; however, as I bring out in the post, “Conventions, Kingdom Halls, Relief Funds, and Other Financial Scams and Schemes of Jehovah’s Witnesses,” they don’t need to use collection plates, as the religion has lots of other ways of raking in the cash. Most prominently, this includes property flipping and real estate sales; as part of a recent civil case brought against the Witnesses, the court noted that Watchtower has some $1.3 billion in real property (see D070723 marked up, footnote on page 18).

Jehovah’s Witnesses also have others ways of collecting money from their congregants; they have “contribution boxes” set up at meetings, assemblies and conventions, and a way to donate through their website. The religion’s leaders don’t keep track of who donates what monies through these means; while this may sound…

LabourList confirms anti-Lansman candidates are ‘slate’ – then deletes

I have to laugh at Progress and Labour List, in their attempts to make their 3 stooges look like Independants – do they really think we’re that stupid, we can’t see what’s happening here?
Maybe they should learn not to refer to Jeremy Corbyn supporters as Corbynistas for a start?

The SKWAWKBOX

oops bubbleLabourList published an article this morning crowing about the decision this week of Bermondsey and Old Southwark (BOS) CLP (constituency Labour party) to back Izzard, Baxter and Josan for the three additional NEC places to be elected from the end of this month.

BOS is the home CLP of Momentum founder John Lansman and right-wingers were already crowing about this on social media last night, betraying a certain wilful ignorance about the way local Labour parties work – you’re stuck with your CLP because of where you live, no choice in the matter and Lansman is unlikely to have had time or inclination to start trying to whip votes in a CLP with one of the worst right-wing MPs.

So the embarrassment is minimal – far less, say, than the BOS MP being chastised by members of his own and neighbouring CLPs for his dire behaviour during the General Election…

Tory #CutsKill 120,000 people

Yet again, this is more proof of the disgusting acts of a Tory Government that cares more for money than people.
If they are not held to account for all of these deaths, why are we even bothering to think we are a democracy?

The SKWAWKBOX

A report by the British Medical Journal published just minutes ago links almost 120,000 ‘excess’ deaths – in England aloneand across a period of just seven years – to Tory cuts in health and social care spending.

120,000.

If those people – people who could have been alive today and are not, because of Tory decisions – were a town, they would be comfortably inside the top eighty most populous towns and cities in the whole UK.

A Tory councillor on BBC’s Question Time last week said that claims that Tory policies kill people were ‘inflammatory rubbish’. But now we have firm evidence that those claims have barely scratched the surface.

The death toll is huge – and the Tories will throw everything they can at this report to try to discredit it – just as they did when the UN condemned the…

Right’s desperation clear in Dent Coad stick-man attack

To this date, nothing has surprised me in the Tory war against everyone but themselves – but for them to stir up this kind of mud, over a sign written in black ink (a colour I always use when writing or drawing anything) is totally beyond the pale – but then, the Tories have been so beyond the pale since they got into power, that they’ve gone around, and come right back again!

The SKWAWKBOX

The Establishment is clearly very, very, very keen to create a smokescreen to distract from Labour MP Emma Dent Coad’s new inequality report and her steadfast support for her community against the Tory government’s utter failure to respond properly to the Grenfell Tower blaze that took so many lives.

Desperate, in fact.

Over the last few days we’ve seen increasingly desperate attempts to smear Ms Coad as racist, in spite of her huge popularity with her constituents from ethnic communities, but today’s attempt would beggar belief if the Tories hadn’t already killed satire some time ago.

The latest smear attempts to claim that because Ms Dent Coad sketched a ‘hangman’ symbol on the ‘Tory tree’ symbol, it means she was daydreaming about hanging a black Conservative from a tree.

Well, that’s what it quickly turned into. The Fawkes blog didn’t have the wit to make that leap of idiocy and…

A defence of “political correctness”

A great piece, Kitty, and I must thank you for clearing up my confusion over the gradual change in the meaning of Political Correctness, and who is using that change for their own ends – I’m just so glad that the way I’ve always viewed it, was actually the correct way 🙂
All we have to do now, is get things back the way that they should be . . . . 😦

Politics and Insights

Related imageThe left believe that in order to address prejudice and discrimination, it’s important to address the language we use as a society, changing it to reflect an increasingly diverse society, where everyone feels at safe, included and one in which citizens attempt to avoid giving needless offence to one another.

By ensuring terms that reflect prejudice are not part of our everyday language habits, it is hoped that as a society, we can cultivate and extend tolerance and basic principles of courtesy, equality and decency to our fellow human beings, reflecting a healthy pluralism. 

However, the right see a conspiracy in “political correctness”. The phrase is used by Conservatives and the far right in a derogatory way that implies hidden and powerful forces determined to suppress inconvenient truths by the policing of language and thought. For the right, political correctness is an hegemonic, stifling and Stalinist-styled orthodoxy, that pressures us…

Vox Political’s List of his ‘Inflammatory Rubbish’ Articles Documenting Tory Attacks on the Sick and Disabled

The constant denials of any Tory voter, that they are not to blame for so many thousands of deaths, isn’t surprising at all. Unfortunately, all the tories know how to do is bluster and blame everyone else for their own machiavellan plots and schemes to make themselves ever richer, on the backs of the poor and vulnerable in society.
Their days are numbered, and they know it – unfortunately, for every day they still stay in power, there will be ever more deaths, and suicides, because ordinary people are having to cope with the mess the tories have made of our Welfare State 😦
When will it end?

Beastrabban\'s Weblog

This is the amended version of an article I posted earlier, when I had yet to hear from Mike himself about what happened. This was because his blog was extremely difficult to log onto late last night, so I feared Mike had been personally libelled by Stevens – he hadn’t – and that the internet was censoring his replies. It probably wasn’t either, but it has in the past.

Yesterday, Chris Stevens, the Tory councillor for Horley in Surrey, went off on a rant denouncing the articles journos like Aditya Chakrabortty and bloggers, vloggers and disability activists like Mike had put up describing how Tory welfare policies are killing the sick and disabled as ‘inflammatory rubbish’.

So Mike yesterday put up a list of some of his own ‘inflammatory rubbish’ articles to prove exactly that that is precisely what they are not. He states in his brief introduction to the…
