jaynelinney

The following true tale is the introduction into what will be a series of posts regarding a seeming miscarriage of justice and potential disability discrimination; names have been changed to protect the identities of these involved. The purpose of this post is to help the family concerned achieve real justice; please share as widely as possible.

Alison is a single parent of14 year old Adam, both live with various diagnosed and pending diagnosis health disorders including Fibromyalgia and Elhers Danos; Alison is also Autistic and symptoms suggest Adam is as well.

Due to Adams health, he found it difficult to cope with school from the beginning and despite special educational needs intervention, including one to one lessons he struggled experiencing bullying which resulted in him developing depression. These experiences became worse during Adams transition from junior to senior school, so much so that in 2015, Alison began to home educate…

Australia “weather-experts” falsify climate change

by Jon Rappoport

August 2, 2017

“Global warming is a non-problem…I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.” (Dr. Ivar Giaever, Nobel-Prize winner in physics)

“The computer models just weren’t reliable. In fact, I’m not sure the whole thing isn’t crazy, this climate change.” (Green Guru James Lovelock, who once predicted imminent destruction of the planet via global warming)

I’ve written a number of articles proving the global warming science is far from “settled.” I’ve also written about the political agenda behind climate change. It is stark:

All nations will be ordered (if treaties are signed) to REDUCE THEIR OVERALL ENERGY PRODUCTION BY A DISASTROUS AMOUNT.

Therefore, the output of carbon dioxide would be cut, and, we are told, “the planet could be saved.”

But no replacement of carbon-based fuels with solar, wind, and other popular alternative sources could…

MP calls for clock-in cards to prove peers are putting in ‘full shift’

Stop MP lies & corruption

If the procedure above was in place before the 2010 general election we wouldn’t have had Tory Lord Hanningfield obtaining so much taxpayers’ money for doing so little in return.  His story is a terrific one with an ending that sums up the state of Parliament today.

In 2011 Hanningfield was sentenced to nine months in prison after being found guilty of nearly £14,000 worth of expenses fraud. He served a quarter of the sentence in jail.

In 2014 after being let out of jail he returned to his Lord position and was caught out again after his peerage attendance was monitored by reporters in July 2014.

July 1st – Arrives: 14:26 Leaves: 14:54 = 28 minutes earning him £300.
July 3rd – Arrives: 15:21 Leaves: 15:59 = 38 minutes for another £300.
July 4th – Arrives: 11:57 Leaves: 12:33 = 36 minutes for another £300.
July 8th – Arrives: 14:35…

Disabled claimants told: 2 yrs to get job or be sanctioned for a year

The SKWAWKBOX

dwpp2The government is pressing ahead with the roll-out of its Universal Credit (UC) replacement to the benefits system in spite of huge delays and problems – and continuing problems so ingrained that foodbank use has increased sharply in every area where is has been implemented.

UC contains a draconian set of provisions, including a ‘Claimant Commitment’ (CC) – a set of imposed requirements to which the claimant has no right of appeal whatever. As the government’s guidance on CCs states:

There is no right of appeal if a claimant refuses to accept their Claimant Commitment and the requirements that have been set out in it.

A JCP adviser – who might be incompetent, inexperienced, bitter, have a personality clash with the claimant or just simply be having a bad day – is the final arbiter of whether a CC is reasonable and achievable, and even a patently bad decision…

Excl: Corbyn’s response to May’s ‘save me’ plea: we’ll send her our manifesto

The SKWAWKBOX

As the SKWAWKBOX noted on Sunday, Theresa May made a mockery of her ‘ad nauseam’ line about which leader the British public would prefer at the Brexit negotiating table – by begging Jeremy Corbyn for his help:

may begsClearly she knows which side of the Dispatch Box the real ‘strong and stable’ sits.

But surely Corbyn won’t reach out a hand to save her from drowning in a cesspit of her own making – and one which from which she has shown little real intention of learning any humility?

Too right.

A spokesperson from the opposition leader’s office told the SKWAWKBOX:

If she needs help, we’ll be happy to send her Labour’s General Election manifesto. It contains some great stuff on how a real government, with the genuine best interests of the country and its people at heart, will negotiate Brexit.

As many of her colleagues already seem to want to use…

Truss admits: #publicsectorpay cuts all about putting money in business pockets

The SKWAWKBOX

Liz Truss – because Philip Hammond was too cowardly to answer John McDonnell’s urgent question on it himself – spoke to the House of Commons today to try to defend the government’s years-long freeze and cap on public-sector pay. Caps that have forced nurses and other hard-working public servants even to resort to foodbanks to survive.

nurse foodbank.pngHammond is well known for car-crash interviews, but he might be wishing he’d faced the grilling instead of the hapless Truss, whose tongue loosened a bit too much and let slip a damning revelation:

That the Tories have been deliberately cutting public sector wages to put money in the pockets of business.

Tory MP Rachael McLean asked a question that pointed out that private sector pay ‘fell significantly‘ while public sector pay had ‘remained stable’ before the Tories’ attack on it – and urged the government to make sure that any…

We need to talk about Diane Abbott. Now. (EXPLICIT CONTENT)

JACK MONROE

This is not a recipe. I wrote this as a series of tweets today and readers asked for it as a blog post, so here it is. Our politics may differ, so feel free to skip straight back to the recipes if that’s what you’re here for.

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT DIANE ABBOTT.

Right one of us political writer people needs to do this and it looks like it’s me. Grab a seat. I wanna talk about Diane.
Diane was first elected as an MP in 1987, the year before I was born. She has been dedicated to serving the British public for longer than I have even been alive. Hold that thought. Understand it.
Diane was the first black woman to have a seat in the House of Commons. She MADE HISTORY. Her father was welder, her mother a nurse. How many working class kids do we have…
