PIP – Permanently Irritation Persecution?

Whilst our mainstream media continue with the media circus about the USA presidential nominations, the referendum on EU membership and the false allegations of anti-Semitism against those who support the Palestinians rights.  Concerns have been raised by landlords, that those on Universal Credit, are in rent arrears?  Which will come as no surprise, to any one with any commosense!

We still have a Government still hounding the least able in society.  Whilst the rich get away with false expenses applications and avoiding tax.  Money is wasted hounding the poorest in society, instead of assisting them and making their lives more worthwhile.  A society which sits-by and allows the persecution and ridicule of the poor and meek, is not worthy of calling itself civilised!

Recent experience leads me to ask the question what does is PIP – Personal Independence Payment OR Permanently Irritation Persecution? In February  I wrote about how following the DWP rules r…

Asking a Question, the Challenge open to us all

We have gone back in time, to a period similar to that written about by Robert Tressell in ‘The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists!  And yet, we are now in the 21st Century.  How has this been allowed to happen, where are the opposition political parties?

Except for the use of foul language, which is unnecessary, this article does expose Tesco’s hypocrisy and cynicism. The Government has not got a clue about fiscal matters, making people poorer has a detriment of the local economy and eventually the nations economy. This Government and the opposition are driving this country into a hole, it will never recover from.

the void

tesco-exploitationTesco claim to have called on the DWP to scrap benefit sanctions in a response to a letter asking them about their use of forced, unpaid workers.

In a humiliating snub to Iain Duncan Smith, the company set up their own workfare scheme outside of the Jobcentre system last year.  Tesco say that this scheme is entirely voluntary but add in the letter:  “I appreciate your concerns and can advise that Tesco have suggested to the Department of Work and Pensions that, to avoid any misunderstanding about the voluntary nature of the scheme, the risk of losing benefits that currently exists should be removed.”

Now unless Tesco are fibbing, if their scheme is outside of the various DWP workfare schemes, then it should be entirely voluntary.  The statement suggests that in order to avoid confusion Tesco would like to see all benefit sanctions removed.  Tesco want free workers without the…

The views of SKWalker 1964, on the lack of ‘Duty of Care’ by the DWP

IF SKWalker is right, and the DWP (Department for Works and Pensions), a Social Impact Assessment was never carried out on the affects of changes to disability benefits.  It would appear then, that they have failed in their ‘Duty of Care’ and in my opinion, may have contravene Government legislation; The Equality Act 2010.  

Both the last Labour Government and this Government have done nothing to bring the criminals involved in numerous Banking illegalities to justice.  Stating, all sorts of nonsense, why it was not possible to bring criminal charges.  And instead both the last Labour Government and this Conservative Governments have poured money into a corrupt banking system.   Max Kaiser and Stacy Herbert cover some of these illegal activities carried out by Financial Institutions causing abject poverty on millions of people.

And yet, those who are unfortunate and who which to have a basic standard of living, those of us who are fortunate enough enjoy, Equality.  But both Labour and Conservatives Governments and Local Governments, have done their best to demonize the unfortunate.
