Spy smear pushes Labour polling UP . . .

Tory MP Ben Bradley sparked outrage last week with a baseless, tweeted accusation that Jeremy Corbyn had ‘sold British secrets to communist spies’. The tweet prompted a letter to Bradley from Corbyn’s lawyers, insisting that Bradley issue an unreserved apology, ask his followers to share it and make a significant donation to charities of Corbyn’s choice – or face court action.

Bradley rapidly deleted his ill-judged tweet.

But today Bradley did everything that Corbyn had demanded, in a humiliating climbdown. Spot the keywords it’s believed Corbyn’s lawyers insisted he repeat to an embarrassing degree:

Labour Polling Goes Up!

Ben Bradley Climbdown and Apology to Jeremy Corbyn

It’s nice to see at least one Tory facing up to his lies – although this has only happened because of the sheer amount of proof that it was a lie, and because Jeremy Corbyn had finally had enough of the Tory out-and-out lies; the smear campaigns brought by both the Tories, and the right-leaning MSM that he is a Communist Spy, that he sold secrets to the Czechs, and every other false news they could think of to cause him harm!

The continuous barrage of contempt that the Tories have spewed at Jeremy Corbyn, especially since he was voted in as Leader of the Labour Party, is totally beyond the Pale, and the blackening of this gentle man’s name is a shame, and disgrace, for Westminster as a whole – as nothing at all has been done to curb the vituperation expelled by the Tory Party, at a man blameless of all their cowardly lies!

Jeremy Corbyn is a man who is trying to help us all out of this nightmare of  an Ideological-driven forced Austerity – but the apology was only made because Bradley was so totally caught out in his lies!

What we need now is for Bradley to quit, although I can’t ever see any Tory admitting to their wholesale  slandering of Jeremy Corbyn since he was voted in as Labour leader!

We all know that, if the Tories sacked everyone in their party who has been caught out in such rotten – and sustained – lies, then the whole party, including May, who lies continuously to the British Public, would have to resign!

And the real Irony of it all?

Rather than making the British Public hate Jeremy Corbyn, as the Tories had hoped, the sheer avarice of the Tory Party as a whole; their greedy selling off of our publicly funded NHS to US medical firms; and their nasty, dirty, deals that have been brokered to anyone they could sell our publicly owned treasures to, has been exposed, and Jeremy Corbyn has got to the attention of so many more people, who might not have bothered about politics before Austerity was forced on us all, and so people have started looking into this totally unfair smearing campaign, and seen the truth beneath the lies – and I’m proud to be one of them!

Esther McVey lies again – to Work and Pensions Committee | DPAC

This Site’s article about the Tories wasting more than £100 million in two years on persecuting the sick and disabled made a very important point – that the figures never tie together perfectly because they aren’t intended to.

It seems that the issue is worse than I stated: Esther McVey’s department has been found to have sent one set of figures to the Commons Work and Pensions Committee, and then sent another set – that the DWP had told the committee weren’t available – in response to a Freedom of Information request.

So the DWP has been deliberately trying to hide information from MPs.

Now, why would anybody want to do that?

Labour Party 2018 Rule Book!

The Skwawkbox has just posted the link to download the Labour Party’s 2018 rule book, something every member – and potential member – should read as thoroughly as they can, if only so that we can protect our democracy!

But we also need to keep abreast of the rules, in order to keep those members, who are right-leaning, from taking over once again!

Here’s the link for the Swawkbox post’s Rule Book download:

When will this Nightmare Stop?

I’ve just read a post by Kate Belgrave where she speaks about a family,  who the council are considering to be Intentionally Homeless, and where the council are potentially threatening the mother with the removal of her children, rather than finding her, and her 3 children, somewhere to live.

Here’s the link to her post:

Intentionally Homeless with kids? Council will house the kids but not you – ie, you’ll be separated from them. The hell with this.

Now I don’t know all the ins-and-outs of this lady’s story, but I can only assume that the rent arrears that prompted the loss of her flat, were caused either because she was forced to sign on for the infamous Universal Credit which, I must remind you, is awarded to those both IN as well as OUT of work, and can – even now – take anything up to 6 months to sort out properly! This, then, causing huge rent arrears – and homelessness – or there was some other genuine reason that this happened.

But the point of it all is that, since the Tories, then the Blairite New Labour – who might as well be labelled Tory-Lite, and then the Tories again, have been in power, then anybody, no matter who they are, or if they are working, or not, who have the misfortune to fall into penury – whether from losing their job, becoming chronically ill or disabled, or because of all the terrible cuts the Tories are making to our once world-class Welfare State – have now got to face having their children removed from their custody if they become homeless or, if without children, have to face walking the streets, or sofa-surfing (if they’re lucky enough to have friends or family that can help them in this way), rather than being helped in finding somewhere to live and, potentially, being able to contribute back to the society that helped them!

The idea of a Society has become just a word, here in the UK, with no meaning behind it any more – rather than an idea that can bring people together in mutual support – and this rot started with the awful ideaology of a Tory Party that thinks only of what they can make out of us, and out of the Public Purse – for themselves and their Business Buddies in the USA – rather than looking after the people that they are paid a huge wage – plus many bonuses – in looking after our interests!

When you see the levels of homelessness, the levels of child poverty, the levels of suicides, the levels of mental health problems, and the piecemeal dismantling of our NHS and the Welfare State, then you can see the unravelling of everything that was great about this country – mainly put in place by a Labour Government, after WW2.

So how long do you think that this murderous regime can continue, before people say ‘ENOUGH!‘?

Excl: Rees-Mogg ‘white-shirt’ partying in nazi uniform . . .

Since the events took place on Friday, the SKWAWKBOX has published analysis of the video footage from Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg’s speech at University of West England (UWE) in Bristol, proving that the ‘antifa’ protesters who disrupted the event, while noisy, were peaceful, and that physical contact was initiated by a white-shirted Rees-Mogg supporter.

The video evidence is completely at odds with the presentation of events by mainstream and right-wing media – and senior Tory politicians – who have described ‘left-wing violence and intimidation’.

Yesterday, the SKWAWKBOX revealed the identity of the white-shirted man as a Bristol-based martial arts instructor and keen poster of pro-Mogg petitions. The Tory ministers were informed and invited to retract and apologise, but have so far failed to do so.

Now the SKWAWKBOX has received a series of photographs showing the same man at a party – in nazi ‘SS’ uniform – of which a selection is shown below:

Disabled people’s response to PIP review: STARK TERROR . . .

Judge Death: Esther McVey’s Department for Work and Pensions will evaluate the PIP entitlement of people who have died since claiming – including some whose claims were refused altogether. Fat lot of good it’ll do them [Image: PA].

Perhaps Esther McVey thought disabled people would be grateful when she announced that every claim for Personal Independence Payment would be reviewed, because the government was under-paying people with mental health problems. If so, SHE THOUGHT WRONG.

In fact, the 1.6 million PIP recipients whose claims are to be reviewed have greeted the announcement, not with gratitude, but with terror.

Vox Political commenter ‘Florence’ explains:

 

The decision to review all cases had caused alarm among the PIP base; we see yet another opportunity to be denied benefits. The DWP are not trusted, and the decision to review all 1.6 million claims will undoubtedly have some unpleasant side effects.

While [the] opportunity to gain extra data on the appalling Human Rights situation is welcomed, the simple fact we are all being put through a desk-based review before our existing review date just fills us all with dread.
