As usual, Charlotte and her gang have been doing their best to help all of those people being abused by the DWP system!
Well done, Charlotte & Co! 🙂
The poor side of life
I couldn’t believe that Thursday had arrived so quickly. I had spent all week covering the Conservative Party Conference and to say that I was tired is an understatement, but people still need help.
I was met at the cafe by a lady that we had helped a while ago. Her life is back on track now and she is doing well. She likes to come and have a chat with me, and I like it to. I regard her as a friend and we sat and put the world to rights.
I arrived at the Jobcentre and set everything up. Thank goodness I wasn’t on my own this week, last week was awful. People soon arrived, arriving at the Jobcentre for appointments many needing food parcels.
The weather is getting cold now, although it wasn’t raining. My thoughts go out to everyone living on the streets.
We spoke to…

I really have to agree with Cris Williamson MP. His Video says it all, really – there is such a paucity of real, new, ideas coming from the Tories that they may as well give in now, and let Labour start fixing what the Tories have deliberately broken over the last 7 years! 😦
Labour front-bencher Chris Williamson has a reputation for straight-talking and his latest video is no exception.
Set to Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Sound of Silence’, Williamson dissects Theresa May’s performance at their joke of a conference – and takes no prisoners:
The video also features Laura Kuenssberg telling May of a Tory colleague describing ‘the smell of decay’ about her leadership. ‘Stench’ would be a better word – but not only about May, the whole party reeks of rottenness.
Watch. Enjoy. Share.

Without the NHS I, like so many others, wouldn’t be here now – and the Tories are stealing this away from us, our children, and their children too!
Harry Smith’s words are so true – It really IS a Call to Arms, isn’t it? 😦
I just hope and pray that we can use every kind of media, but especially social media, as a way of getting the message across to everyone – before our NHS is totally gone!
Fear and loathing in Great Britain
Theresa May recently said in a speech to mark 20 years of the Bank of England’s independence, “A free market economy, operating under the right rules and regulations, is the greatest agent of collective human progress ever created. It was the new combination which led societies out of darkness and stagnation and into the light of the modern age … That is unquestionably the best, and indeed the only sustainable, means of increasing the living standards of everyone in a country.”
Sixty years of the greatest health and social reform this country has ever known, saving and preserving countless millions of lives, and then the Tories came grasping to power to steal that sixty years of progress from us and now Theresa May comes out with this utter bollocks.
Here’s a brief passage from Harry Leslie Smith’s book, ‘Don’t let my past be your future. A call to arms’.
