Who remembers this youtube. Oh by the way there is no shame to say I did not see this:
Compliments of Jeremy Hunt this happening on your watch let’s see you get out this one firstly you tell all of us to work like Chinese when you had to retract your statement. Then you try to force though your unworkable contracts with junior doctors and refuse to meet up with angry junior doctors. What a month it must have been for you then event that you had to attend had to be cancelled in fear having to speak to junior doctors who were willing to pay their £15:00 to attend the event to put some questions to him what a chicken he is with no conviction to man up to them. Hang on I’m sure after forcing the junior doctors to accept their contracts the next on the list would be the consultants, nurses, porters, cleaners and the list goes on and on. The chickens have come home to roost and he is running as fast as he can to the next conservative association.
See articles below:
If you concur that Jeremy Hunt must go please sign this petition:
The Conservative Party is the party of personal responsibility. They pride themselves on telling people to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and jolly well get on their bikes to improve their lives. They love a bit of personal responsibility, just not personally you understand. They are completely incapable of taking any responsibility for the outcomes of their actions. Instead trotting out the same old “what we inherited from the Labour Party”.
I expect no difference with the Conservatives as they only put the lives of the most vulnerable at risk, because your silly party happened to be in power during a global recession.” Seriously Tories pack it in, go to your bedrooms, sit in the corner and have a word with yourselves. David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt make choices, simple as that. They have been making them for six years and they should take responsibility for them and stop blaming others like petulant junior doctors, nurses, and health workers. So, yes, when people commit suicide because of bedroom tax it is David Cameron and Iain Duncan Smith’s fault as it happen to be their watch. When both David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt stands in the way of sex and relationship education reaching as many kids as it can, it is their fault when kids don’t know enough to protect themselves from abusers or where to go if they are victims. Yes, when hundreds of doctors and nurses walk out on strike it is his choices that meant your appointment was cancelled. It will be their fault too when the dangerous working practices of junior doctors kill people. They are more than happy to take credit for the good stuff you do. They’ll whip your personal responsibility away from you the second you get a job, or your kid gets an A at school. They will stand and say, “thanks to me, education is improving and unemployment is falling.”
Checkout this the conservatives want to be in power for a generation, and are fixing the system to make that happen. The Trade Union Bill includes a clause that is deliberately designed to cut off trade unions’ financial support for the Labour Party – while doing nothing to limit the hedge funds and millionaires that support the Tories.
Not enough people know about what the Tories are trying to do, so it’s up to us to get the message out there. That’s why we’re asking if you could take two minutes to help us spread the word in your community.
We’ve created a quick and easy online tool so you can send a letter to your local newspaper’s letters page, outlining the attack on democracy that the Tories are planning. Will you help spread the word by writing to your local paper?
In another intriguing development Charles Walker said claims by Channel 4 News that some bills were not included in local spending returns during three 2014 by-elections and in Thanet South in May’s election should be examined.
A Labour by-election candidate has urged police to investigate.
The Tories say all their spending was recorded in accordance with the law.
Channel 4 News said it had obtained hotel bills which suggest the party broke electoral rules in the Newark, Clacton and Rochester & Strood by-elections, the first of which the Conservatives won and the other two it lost to UKIP.
Campaign spending in by-elections is limited to £100,000 for each party But Channel 4 News says it has uncovered £56,866.75 of undeclared hotel bills in Rochester, which would have taken the party £53,659.83 over the £100,000 limit.
It found bills totalling £26,786.14 in Clacton, which would have taken the party £10,835.36 over the limit, and receipts totalling £10,459.30 in Newark, which would mean an overspend of £6,650.28.
Charles Walker, the Tory MP for Broxbourne, told Channel 4 News that the matter should be examined.
“I’m going to raise it at the board but I suspect others will be raising it at the board. These are serious allegations,” he said.
“I’m not diminishing the nature of these allegations. But the Conservative Party believes it has complied with election law.”
“Channel 4 appear to be in possession of documents which raise questions relating to spending by the Conservative Party during the 2014 Newark by-election; the questions raised allegedly relate to spending that appears not to have been declared,” he wrote.
“I am seeking assurance this evidence and matter will be investigated, and if necessary referred to the appropriate authorities in order to reassure the residents of Newark constituency that established electoral laws and procedures, which are designed to protect our democracy, have been complied with.”
Nottinghamshire Police are yet to respond to the letter.
A spokesman for the Electoral Commission said it was aware of the allegations.
“Alleged breaches of the rules around candidate spending at by-elections or parliamentary general elections are matters for the police to investigate under the Representation of the People Act 1983,” he said.
A Conservative spokeswoman said: “All by-election spending has been correctly recorded in accordance with the law.”
I’m I going senile is Iain Duncan Smith reportedly demanded that those in receipt of benefits be removed from the electoral register, according to a letter leaked to the press. The Work and Pensions Secretary justified his request by arguing that it is unfair that people not currently paying into the system, either through working or by being high net wealth individuals, should be allowed to have a say in how public money is spent. His letter to the Prime Minister went on to suggest that withdrawing the right to vote in this way, would provide a “much needed incentive for the workshy, ill and disabled to find work”, and for those in work to stay “in work and off benefits”. The letter also questioned whether those under the age of 25, who tend to be “more prone to idealism”, ought to be permitted to vote, albeit with a possible exception “for members of the Young Conservatives.”
There is speculation in Westminster that the timing of this letter is related to the upcoming referendum on whether the UK should leave the EU, and a possible snap general election that some are predicting to take place thereafter. In this context, barring voters who are the least likely to vote for ‘Brexit or for the Conservative Party, may be seen by some as a useful measure.
A DWP spokeswoman refused to comment directly on the leaked letter, but told reporters: “Iain Duncan Smith believes that in a perfect world everybody would be able to enjoy a full suite of human rights, but with rights come responsibilities, and some rights should only be granted to those who have paid-in.”
Now we have at last, it’s called the in and out referendum the date has been set for 23 June 2016 right after the Local Government, London Mayoral, Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly, and Police Crime Commissioner Elections. I seem to recall that some of us have been down this road before it was back in 1975 otherwise called Common Market which some of us were a wee nipper and didn’t have a vote or were not born then.
The argument back in the 1975 referendum was the Common Market see link below:
Who said these two weeks ago?
“In favour of staying, it is in Britain’s geo-strategic interests to be pretty intimately engaged in the doings of a continent that has a grim 20th-century history, and whose agonies have caused millions of Britons to lose their lives … [Leaving] would dismay some of our closest friends, not least the eastern Europeans for whom the EU has been a force for good: stability, openness, and prosperity.”
The Boris lies are at full flow but the last people he is concerned of is the British people. His stunt is all about him and him wanting to be PM. He will say anything and hope the British people are gullible in not looking close at what he says.
The reasons Boris is not standing for London Mayor again is because he knows he will lose. Londoners have seen through the shame pretense that he cares about their lives. So now he wants to con the rest of the nation and fool them into thinking he speaks sense. Well he does not, he never has. Acting like a bumbling idiot does not make him a towering personality, it just means he is deceptive and a con man. He is no idiot but he hopes many of the public are.
The EU matters to the UK, Boris and his ego do not. The issues for staying in the EU outweigh any gripe he has.
Would David Cameron ever demand such a move? No! He is too busy along with Osborne helping Google and other multinationals avoid tax! Well thankfully the EU is not so obliging. Europe matters because it has clout and can make a difference.
Finance Ministers from world leading economies have warned of alleged of shock to the global economy if the UK leaves the EU. The ministers gave their opinions in a statement released at the end of a two day meeting of G20 nations in China.
As all the political party lobby for our votes let’s not forget there will be further cuts on the Horizon courtesy of the chancellor of the exchanger(George Osborne) for public spending in next month(March) budget.
This comes as the global economic turmoil and slow growth meant “We may need to undertake further reductions”.
It’s further alleged he slowed the pace of cuts in the last spending review, but suggested saving could be announced on 16 March Budget as figures showed the UK economy was smaller than expected.
Leaving the EU would be a total disaster; it makes no sense to walk away from having influence on a world scale. Jobs and living standards will suffer and the UK will be seen as no longer relevant by the US.
We as a nation get far more back then we put in and the idea that it would be wonderful if we were on our own is just not true. The UK is no longer an empire it is one small Island joined with a handful of others from a distant past. It needs the EU or the nation will forever lose out.
Let’s not be like Scotland and the SNP who want to govern a small piece of land yet have no answers to how when there is little money. Let’s not listen to Eurosceptic MPs and the biased press and the agenda of Europe hating Murdoch! Those views are based on self-greed or a misguided view that Britain still rules the waves.
Europe equals fairness in working rights and dignity, animal welfare protection and law, environmental protection, international crime detection with more ability to stop global crime. It means billions and billions in the UK on infrastructure and regeneration. It means the UK has a voice!
Let’s not throw that away on hearsay and made up rubbish in the press!
If I thought that Farage would disband and UKRAP would be no more, I would vote NO. However that would just disperse the bigots and send them into hiding and even disperse them where they might be absorbed into other Mainstream parties again. No!! Because I like to know where my enemy is and see the flag he/she marches under, I’ll stick with a YES at present
Here is what the Conservatives have to fail to mention again see youtube below:
“Instead of cutting the funding for charities that provide the most cost effective solutions to the increasing demand, why not invest prudently in a well-resourced health and social care system that actually works for the benefit of those that need it, whatever their condition” he asked. David Cameron dodged talks yesterday with the leaders of European political parties opposed to benefits cuts for migrant workers.
The Prime Minister was due to meet the European Parliament’s conference of presidents, which includes the leaders of all political groups.
But the Tory leader, who also refused to make his case for reform to an EU plenary session, pulled out of the meeting on the eve of his visit to Brussels.
Instead, Downing Street officials hastily rearranged individual meetings with supportive politicians.
He met Elmar Brok of the right-wing European People’s Party, Guy Verhofstadt of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe and Roberto Gualtieri of the Socialists and Democrats group.
A Downing Street source said all three had “committed to work hard to ensure that the relevant secondary legislation on the emergency brake and child benefit is swiftly adopted by the parliament.”
Mr Cameron hopes the meetings will secure the support of the European Parliament for his reforms.
Key parts, including the “emergency break” on benefits for migrants, will be voted on by MEPs should Britain remain in the EU.
But his snub to five of Parliament’s eight political groups – including the Tories’ own European Conservatives and Reform group – risked increasing resistance.
A spokesperson for the Green-EFA group said: “We are disappointed that David Cameron chose not to speak to the presidents of all the political groups.
In another development this what you can expect from a Conservative government which they are trying their best to conceal by attempting to justify the raising of council rents to market levels for households earning over £30,000, or £40,000 in London, the government constantly repeats the incorrect and insulting refrain that council housing is “subsidising our life-styles”
“The deal that David Cameron hopes to agree with his EU counterparts later this week is not the deal we would want, and he should certainly not assume that the Greens EFA group, or indeed the European Parliament as a whole, will simply rubber-stamp it.”
The Nordic Green Left group, who only learned the meeting had been cancelled through press reports, said the snub had “undermined” the European Parliament.
President Gabi Zimmer added: “Mr Cameron’s requests to the European Union include deep changes to EU fundamental principles such as equal treatment, non-discrimination and free movement in which the European Parliament should be fully involved as it touches upon the Parliament’s prerogatives in its role as legislator.
“The EU would be well advised not to follow Mr Cameron’s most regressive requests in the field of social security and freedom of movement.”
Politicians from a cross party and even the ruling Conservatives acknowledge that there is a housing crisis in Britain.
They can hardly avoid it. Evidence that there is something rotten in the state of housing is all around us, and not just among the poorest. Children learn in schools about the squalor of the 19th century, the poverty-stricken slums where several families would be crammed into single rooms.
This misery made housing one of the great social issues of the last century from David Lloyd George’s promise of “homes fit for heroes” to the massive expansion of council house building pioneered by Labour from 1945. The post-war generation grew up in a Britain where, on finishing your education, you could expect to get a job and live in a stable home you could call your own, even if you were not the legal owner.
Just as the still ongoing devastation of British industry and manufacturing launched by Margaret Thatcher has made well-paid, secure employment a pipe dream for most young people, so has the (again, still ongoing) sabotage of our social housing sector she began with “right to buy” snatched from a generation the dream of an affordable home to raise a family in.
Increasingly, children are raised in cramped flats their parents share with other young adults.
Research from Shelter and YouGov published today demonstrate that over a quarter of families renting in the private sector have had to move home at least three times in the last five years hardly the secure environment most of us would wish to provide for our offspring in their early years.
People are forced to move because they are powerless trapped without adequate rights in buildings owned by other people. So much for Thatcher’s “property-owning democracy.”
That powerlessness fed the rage of the social tenants protesting at the Marriott Hotel in London’s Grosvenor Square yesterday, because without their being consulted or even informed the trust that had owned their homes sold them on to property firm Butterfields E17, which promptly decided to sell up with no regard for the families whose lives it is wrecking.
It is no surprise, then, that the Scottish Greens have found 54 per cent support north of the border for councils to regulate private-sector rents.
Ed Miliband promised that a Labour government would cap rent rises by private landlords ahead of the last election. Tory ministers who were falling about laughing and shrieking “Marxist!” at this outlandish idea had to sit up and pretend they too had a housing plan when YouGov revealed 60 per cent support for Labour’s proposal across Britain including 42 per cent support among Conservative voters.
Well, we now know what that “plan” entails the end to lifetime tenancies, the extension of the right to-buy disaster to housing associations, the injection of more hot air into a property and debt bubble which is speeding our country towards another crash.
The Tories are experts at divide and rule, and have sought to present the housing crisis as a battle between generations the ageing homeowners, who are statistically very likely to vote, and the youthful renters who are not and can therefore be screwed till they bleed.
But for Labour, housing can be a unifier. People are not the atomised individuals the Tories think they are.
The housing crisis affects the young people forced to stay with their parents but obviously, it also affects the parents forced to house their adult children indefinitely, and it affects the grandparents who feel they will have to leave their homes to their children but cannot do so because the soaring cost of care is swallowing them up.
Labour must offer its full-throated support to the Kill the Housing and Planning Bill march on March 13 and make sure its local parties are the champions of a new housing deal in every corner of this country.
This is crude demonetization. In fact, a council home normally pays for the initial investment in its building cost after 20 to 30 years and from then on the rents provide a continuous revenue stream for many decades to come.
So don’t be surprise when I and others say vote Labour in all the Local Government to ensure that Labour have a strong voice in Local Government which includes Police Crimes and Commissioners, London Mayoral Elections on 5 May 2016
