Black Hole

Slimy bastard Jeremy Cunt took his kids to an A+E yesterday. While advising everyone else to visit the GP, the born to rule nebbish thinks he is different. Here he speaks in the House of Common Fuck: “I’ve taken my own children to an A&E department at the weekend precisely because I didn’t want to wait until later on to take them to see a GP and I think we have to recognise that society is changing and people don’t always know whether the care that they need is urgent or whether it is an emergency, and making GPs available at weekends will relieve a lot of pressure in A&E departments.” http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/26/jeremy-hunt-jousts-with-labour-shadow-over-childrens-ae-visit Tories need to pretend its all OK at the NHS. It is no wonder that filthy DC says that if the Tories win the GE then GPs will be open seven days a week: http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/516866/Surgeries-to-stay-open-at-weekends Its the equivelant of putting their fingers in their ears and going “la, la, I can’t hear you”. Tories believe this is possible after making £122000000000 spending cuts: http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/11/25/something-wicked-this-way-comes-the-mystery-of-deficit-reduc Thats right, Tories face a black hole. Grimacing mediocrity Nigel Farage also pretends to speak for the ‘common man’ when he talks about streamlining the NHS: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/02/ukip-assault-on-nhs-extinction So you might ask yourself what is the plan. How can you keep an NHS and have a black hole. Well you cannot, but a part of Neoliberal dogma is not to think about the future. Its all about making a fast buck now, damn the consequences, fuck over the whole British people. TTIP – don’t worry about that – think about the carefree smile of the playboy prince. The sticking plasters can only do so much and 2016 will see a funding crisis: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/nov/26/nhs-inspectors-medway-maritime-hospital-kent But don’t worry, Simon Stevens is in charge, the man from United Health will know exactly what to do. “A single national roadmap would be to miss the point. It’s the energy and commitment of NHS staff, of our patients and our partners that can generate the answers. Direction without dictation. Different answers for diverse communities. It’s hugely encouraging that three quarters of NHS staff say they can make suggestions about how care can be improved. Our task is to job is to make it far easier for these ideas to be acted on.” http://www.england.nhs.uk/2014/06/04/simon-stevens-speech-confed/

Tories are getting cold feet at the size of the cuts. Cuts to local welfare funding are vicious, brutal and create misery. Councils just sit on the dosh at the moment and wont give to people who need it: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/apr/20/emergency-welfare-scheme-local-councils But with there’s much more to come: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/26/tory-minister-local-welfare-cuts-amber-rudd-crisis-schemes Its the price we all have to pay so that the bloated elite have not got to contribute a penny to clear up the fucking mess they made. The boys from Bully know what to do – you go in a restaurant, you glut yourself on the food. Then you trash the restaurant and most importantly, you run off laughing. Here’s some reminiscing from debauched chump Borisconi: “This is a truly shameful vignette of almost superhuman undergraduate arrogance, toffishness and twittishness. But at the time you felt it was wonderful to be going round swanking it up. Or was it? Actually I remember the dinners being incredibly drunken.” http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/toffishness-and-twittishness–boris-johnson-spills-beans-on-bullingdon-club-and-reveals-childhood-ambition-to-be-world-king-8539391.html One thing that is never forgotten is that they are born to rule. While Plebgate drones on inexorably, toff David Mellor has made an arse of himself. Yes readers, the Thatcherite git got in a state the other day with a “sweaty little shit”, as he called a London cab driver. From the Independent: “I’ve been in the Cabinet, I’m an award-winning broadcaster, I’m a Queen’s Counsel – you think that your experiences are anything compared to mine?” he asked, in a secret recording obtained by The Scum. When the driver attempts to defend himself he is told to “shut up” and that he has “ruined” his and Lady Cobham’s day. “Don’t give me a lot of shit because I don’t want to hear it,” he said. “Of course you could apologise but I don’t suppose a guy like you does apologise because you think you’re a big shit having driven a cab for ten years. You don’t need to worry about someone who’s been in the Cabinet, who’s an award-winning broadcaster, who’s a Queen’s Counsel. Treat me like shit, ruin my wife’s day. And if you think you’re going to be sarky with me, get a better education before you try being sarcastic with me. So if you’re not going to say you’re sorry just shut the fuck up.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/david-mellor-regrets-angry-row-with-sweaty-stupid-taxi-driver-get-a-better-education-before-you-try-being-sarcastic-with-me-9881350.html Doff your bloody cap you stinking peasant.

Every day the Probation Matters blog slowly relates the tale of the unmitigated mess the fuckwit Grayling is making of probation. Today we have “As the TR revolution beds in in my area, the more frustrating each day becomes. There are constant instructions regarding the whereabouts of data and who has or does not have access rights. After thirty plus years as a PO with a similar profile to Jim’s, I am deeply saddened at the events that are befalling the probation service, both locally and nationally. I can’t believe that TR was ever conceived in the first place. A valued manager of 8 in one location of the NPS told she has now to manage 30 over 7 locations. The inevitable resignation followed and she is leaving imminently. The MoJ are simply incompetent and arrogant beyond belief. The damage they have perpetrated on this service is, ironically, nothing short of criminal.” http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/omnishambles-update-81.html Since evil Grayling took charge the service is in free fall, but there’s some serious chaos to come. In the short sighted scramble for a fast buck, the Tory vermin have forgotten that all the services interact, when it all falls apart it will be social Armageddon with a financial black hole.


Fucking Up

The human costs of the fuck up of the Coalition ‘reforms’ cannot be calculated. Some of the costs are still in the pipeline, it sees an entire generation shafted by the establishment. In total parody, the neoliberal shits pay the greatest attention to everything that requires the least attention, such as the grotesque bonuses of bankers or the massive contribution the lowly British taxpayer is expected to make to the cost of the royal parasites. In contrast the minimum attention is given to areas where it is needed most. One such area is panic rooms for victims of domestic violence, for which there is now a bedroom tax. Talking about victims of rape, makes evil fascist IDS laugh out loud: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2014/11/20/iain-duncan-smith-laughed-at-rape-victims-plight/ The architect of the bedroom tax, considers himself above the law, but his name is now synonymous with misery as his changes are having a catostrophic impact on vulnerable people across UK. Duncan-Smith is a fucking fascist. Its going to a Judicial Review right now (Morning Star 20-11-14), obviously I wont be holding my breath, but then human rights are irrelevant when the government is pursuing an ideological attack on the poor.

The legal aid cuts, while not receiving publicity, are fucking up so badly that there is now no justice in this country unless you have loads of money. The massive extra court costs add to the massive fuck up of the pogrom. It was always obvious that cases without lawyers would take a lot longer, but then the cuts to legal aid were not about bringing costs down, they were a crude exercise in controlling the poor by the worst government in the history of UK. After the revolution the shit legal aid bill will have to be repealed. After the cuts to Legal Aid, in characteristic Condem fashion no attempts were made to assess or monitor what was happening.  The case of James Munby is typical. Here’s what the judge had to say at the time, its actually strong language for a judge:
“What I have to grapple with is the profoundly disturbing fact that the parents do not qualify for legal aid but lack the financial resources to pay for legal representation in circumstances where, to speak plainly, it is unthinkable that they should have to face the local authority’s application without proper representation. In these circumstances it is unthinkable that the PARENTS should have to face the local authority’s application without proper representation. To require them to do so would be unconscionable; it would be unjust; it would involve a breach of their rights under Articles 6 and 8 of the [European convention on human rights]; it would be a denial of justice. The child is also entitled to a fair TRIAL. Thus far the state has simply washed its hands of the problem, leaving the solution to the problem which the state itself has created – for the state has brought the proceedings but declined all responsibility for ensuring that the parents are able to participate effectively in the proceedings it has brought – to the goodwill, the charity, of the LEGAL profession. This is, it might be thought, both unprincipled and unconscionable.”
http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/11/20/slash-and-burn-how-the-coalition-vandalised-legal-aid The legal aid cuts will also have ramifications with council tax arreers, slowing the system down and creating backlogs: http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/court-cases-chaos-and-soaring-debt-as-council-tax-reform-unravels/

Its a part of the massive cost of austerity: http://touchstoneblog.org.uk/2014/11/austerity-evermore-voters-bill-per-parliament-100-billion-and-rising/#.VG2R9IOiAbk.twitter The whole thing has made the deficit increase: http://www.theguardian.com/business/2014/oct/21/government-borrowing-10-percent-higher-budget-deficit, but instead of being ashamed penis brained Osborne thinks he’s doing a great job. The snide putz may lock away his milk: htttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2839490/Osborne-special-civil-servant-guards-padlocked-fridge-stop-people-stealing-milk.html, but he is succeeding in bankrupting UK. Every week we are now paying £1000000000 in interest charges as the national debt balloons: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/10849333/Interest-bill-on-UKs-1.27-trillion-debt-to-hit-1bn-a-week.html But fuck the dosh – the toffs can cough it up easily, despite their money the fuckers will never be able to repair the broken lives caused in the collateral damage. Every day 600 people are losing their homes: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/homeless-christmas-shelter-fields-51000-4653392
The cost of fucking up is playing directly into the hands of UKIP: http://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2014/11/20/rochester-and-strood-by-election-as-it-happens But when ordinary people actually vote outside the establishment the Green party could take a big chunk of voters: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/11/potential-support-greens-outweighs-potential-support-ukip They could easily become the new Podemos of UK, the left are breaking through throughout Europe: http://socialistworker.co.uk/art/39431/Is+the+left+breaking+through+in+Europe%3F

An aspect of the Toffs is that they will just throw money at shit. The cost of replacing the bloody nuclear missiles they say is £110000000000. The cost of the HS2 is £60000000000, the cost of the magical device for yellow nebbish Danny Alexander is £97000000: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/news/releases/archive/2014/new-hpc, and now they are pushing the most useless bridge across the Thames, they want to waste £60000000 of public money on a bridge the public are not allowed on: http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/architecture-design-blog/2014/nov/19/londons-garden-bridge-the-public-park-where-groups-and-cyclists-arent-welcome

Ah well, at least the playboy prince is wearing his carefree smile again.


Using the simple act of distraction, the Tory fuckwits think they can deceive the British Lion. Born to rule Osborne was never the brains of Britain. Distraction only can work so long, but he actually believes that another £52000000000 of cuts will be accepted by the public, while the rich become monstrously richer. The toffs never thought of Midas, and that greed can actually become an Achilles Heel. But what the Tool-box never considered was that everything is linked to everything else. Ah well – best keep IDS shovelling public dosh down the drain.
All over UK local people are trying to save their NHS. On the Isle of Thanet they have a petition with 38 degrees – please sign it: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/vote-to-save-our-nhs-south-thanet?time=1416335352 Clive Efford’s late Bill may be enough to save the NHS from TTIP, but right now there has been a concerted sell of NHS to private companies: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/nov/19/private-firms-nhs-contracts-circle-healthcare-bupa-virgin-care-care-uk Even the arms manufacturer Lockheed Martin is now involoved, along with corporate bastards G4S: http://www.hsj.co.uk/5076867.article?WT.tsrc=email&WT.mc_id=Newsletter2 But its not all going to plan, with the A&E crisis the wheels are falling off the Tory bandwagon. Now even the arses at Hinchingbroke, Caambridgeshire, are talking about closing the A&E: http://www.hsj.co.uk/5076846.article?WT.tsrc=email&WT.mc_id=Newsletter2 Its disgusting to watch the toffs pick at the NHS carcass, and then cynically turn to us and have the rudeness to say “we are all in this together”, a phrase which the cocknuggets have been unable to use since the fucking bedroom tax started: http://anotherangryvoice.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/all-in-it-together-fallacy.html But the mantra has stuck because it is a form of distraction.

Distraction works so well, its still the rage, and Reckless is using it to bang the immigrants: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/nov/19/ukip-mark-reckless-immigrants-rochester-and-strood?utm_content=bufferccde5&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer Its shameful to watch how rearing the ugly head of soft racism actually works, and how at odds the rhetoric is with the facts: http://www.theguardian.com/news/reality-check/interactive/2014/jan/06/uk-migration-statistics-v-headlines Ordinary people glibly believe what they are told to believe, one area neither UKIP nor the Tories can talk about is the state of Medway Hospital and adjoining Gillingham Maritime Hospital. The Tories have turned them from thriving bastions of public health into a bloody disgrace: http://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/medway-maritime-hospital-special-measures-19959/ The problems to be seen at this time will be magnified by the GE 2015.

Of course the distraction of the NHS actually masks a much bigger picture. The abject failure of the coalition reforms, and how they are costing a lot more money than predicted, is of no surprise to any activist, but it still seems to mystify the electorate. Far from it – with their dirty wrecking ball the cost is doubling: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2014/11/19/coalition-welfare-reforms-have-failed-in-figures-speye-joe/ While the NHS destruction is a very public robbery, what has happened with the PIP assessments is actually a crime against humanity. This recent video is instructive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-jGsYTyPLiM “Well can I just say I don’t agree with any of that” in the words of nebbish IDS. Its particularly telling that the government are treating war veterans the same way: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2014/11/19/vulnerable-were-killed-by-the-state-crimes-against-humanity/

Distraction has not hidden the fact that this government actually hate young people. The potential of young people is now being destroyed by this bunch of arrogant toffs: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/controversial-benefit-sanctions-driving-more-young-people-to-homelessness-charity-warns-9868906.html I am not very young, if I was young I would be fucking angry that this bunch of Neanderthals have fucked up everything so badly. I would be angry at the way these nobs have wrecked the economy and trashed the housing market: http://www.itv.com/news/2014-11-17/rising-private-rent-is-pushing-millions-into-poverty/ The government want to call the bluff of young people and stop anyone under the age of 25 getting housing benefit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-24369514


The crisis in social care is rarely reported on, but that does not mean it is not occurring. In the topsy-turvey Neoliberal world, everything is short term. In the me-me-me culture its all about the fast back, damn the consequence, sell off every public service, fuck over every gain made by the working class. Yet although the area of social care directly impacts on the NHS through the bed blocking saga, its an area politicians refuse to look at it: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/apr/03/nhs-socal-care-crisis-barker-report-solution-money A third of councils have now abandoned their meals on wheels services, and there are very wide variations in provision: http://www.theguardian.com/society/patrick-butler-cuts-blog/2014/nov/11/third-councils-cut-meals-on-wheels-social-care?CMP=share_btn_tw With the local authority cuts of the grotesque butcher Pickles, the national damage is obscene. Take Harrow Council for example. The tosser Pickles has cut the budget of Harrow by 55%, its supposed to make cuts of £75 million over four years. The council want to cut every local service they can, its a fucking stupid idea, it actually will cost everyone more in the long run. Everyone will be forced to use the overstretched services of Northwick Park Hospital. Thats why I am urging people to sign the petition to stop it: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/closure-of-volentary-services-in-harrow-1?bucket=blast&source=facebook-share-button&time=1416240823

The social care crisis is closely intertwined with the NHS crisis. When the NHS goes, so will social care. The toff-tossers love to run down the NHS, they’ve been doing it for years, but without it, the effect would be absolutely devastating. Without it UK would suddenly be plunged into a humanitarian catastrophe. The recent developments at Colchester Hospital are a huge canary in the mine: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/nhs/11239655/Colchester-hospital-crisis-563-serious-incidents-in-two-years.html But there’s much more to come: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/the-colchester-hospital-crisis-shows-nhs-is-still-in-need-of-major-surgery-9866419.html

The braying Tory press have no answer to the crisis. When they frenziedly stuck their knives in the working classes in 2010-2014 they had no long term plan for what would be. A typical answer from the main stream media is to keep filming their repulsive Benefit Street program with so called Love Film and Channel 4. I detest it. I think its shite. Please sign this petition: http://www.change.org/p/ralph-lee-stop-filming-benefits-street?share_id=QGZshHRJNj&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition The media are terrified of the British Lion, because when it wakes up they know it has to be immediately mollified at the greatest cost to the rich. Its much easier to control with media drivel, the carefree laughter of the playboy prince and images of minor celebrities enjoying life. The media pretend the social care crisis is not unfolding, but before they know it, it will break Britain.
Dirty DC wants us to believe that he has to keep hacking public services. The grim bastard has even forced the Marxist John Major to spout that ordinary people were “concerned and worried” that “none of the growth in the economy has yet reached wage packets or salary slips” (Morning Star 18-11-14, 1). Like him or loathe him, Major is from working class backgrounds. He knows the real world, unlike the born-to-rule tossers in charge. Its been repeatedly demonstrated that cuts on public spending are not working: http://www.ifs.org.uk/publications/7447 Limp Labour are unable to break through, their useless shadow secretary of pension and work Rachel Reeves can only continue in a Tory-light vein while banging on about immigration: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/18/labour-clamp-down-in-work-tax-credits-eu-migrants In the social care crisis the woman is as useful as a chocolate kettle, but its not all her fault – she’s symptomatic of a much bigger crisis. Unable to support the working class, Labour’s crisis is evidenced the most in Scotland. Labour have really dropped the ball in Scotland, it could lead to the breaking of Labour. In the breaking of Labour Findlay is important. Findlay has broken ground against nebbish Murphy in Scottish Labour selection: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-30080313 Findlay is someone who can open red water, which is necessary if Labour stand any chance in Scotland against the SNP: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/scotland/11230007/Len-McCluskey-Labour-will-lose-general-election-if-Jim-Murphy-is-elected-Scottish-leader.html


The arrogance of the bloated elite has not yet dampened. Filthy DC wants to venerate the wicked witch with a museum costing £15000000. Joking shit-head DC actually thinks young people will be venerating her after he shat on them from the greatest height. With his usual chutzpah the freak goes: “I am delighted that young people will be able to come to the Thatcher Centre and learn about her achievements, and ensure her legacy lives on.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/margaret-thatcher/10007828/David-Cameron-gives-backing-to-15million-Thatcher-museum.html There have been some victories, they must be enjoyed, they don’t feel regular, but they will be one day. Ordinary people embarrassed and beat back the bastards Benyon, who were acting reprehensibly with the New Era estate in Hoxton, London, Redrow have pulled out of Commercial Street – London, and there have been some workfare victories: http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2014/11/15/here-we-fucking-go-a-string-of-victories-shows-that-when-we-fight-back-we-can-win/
Like maggots in decaying timber, the bullies have all appeared at once, they love to kick down. Show them someone vulnerable and poor, they come out with shit like Alexa Michael, the Tory councillor of Bromley. The seething bitch hates disabled people, her comments are famed. Talking with her usual charm about the effects of Welfare Reform, she comes out with : “It is neither the Councils or the Government’s responsibility that people die due to policy’s, if they die, they die” . Sign this petition to get rid of the trout: https://www.change.org/p/alexa-michael-tory-councillor-for-bromley-resign-from-public-office Yet its the unemployed who are bearing a brunt of the benefit sanctions. 50000 were sanctioned in Liverpool since 2012: http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/shocking-figures-show-merseyside-jobseekers-8116725 In Birmingham they used Fraud staff to harass people off benefits: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2014/11/16/dwp-to-use-fraud-staff-to-harass-people-off-esa-in-birmingham-john-d-turner/ They detest poor people in Westminster, its no wonder they are determined to shut down the Westminster soup kitchen: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/8350563/Westminster-to-outlaw-sleeping-rough-and-soup-kitchens.html?fb Its actually repulsive to watch these nebbochim sell off our NHS: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/selling-nhs-profit-full-list-4646154 at the same time as listening to the mantra of ‘we are all in this together’. While saying he wants to save the NHS, timid Miliband wears a blue tie, he wants us to believe we are all in this together: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/sep/23/labour-conference-ed-miliband-tory-blue-tie The dirty pretender Farage loves the notion ‘we are all in this together’: http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/a-be54-Dont-be-fooled-Ukip-offers-nothing-for-Britains-workers#.VF-9ZiOnzFq

In the disgraceful ‘me, me, me’ culture of filthy DCs Britain, everyone is perceived as on the make. Dirty DC wants you to believe that kindness and humanity no longer exists. Even some charities are now ripping people off: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2521057/BBC-Panorama-expose-reveals-Comic-Relief-sitting-100m-say-money-spent.html But one thing which dirty DC can do nothing about is altering public opinion. The working classes are now fucking sick of austerity. They’ve had enough of endless hacking while the bloated elite have socialism. Like techtonic plates public opinion is moving from under the feet of filthy DC: http://www.thepeoplesassembly.org.uk/new_poll Dirty DC and shitty Osbo are far from being the brains of Britain, the born to rule fuckwits wont be studying public opinion, in the last year the deficit actually went up by 10% and the cuts are not even half way through with another £56000000000 at least to be found. Councils are already at the tipping point: http://www.local.gov.uk/media-releases/-/journal_content/56/10180/6172733/NEWS Sounds like the butcher Pickles needs to wheel out Pricewaterhousecoopers again.
Back in the real world, poor people cannot pay their council tax. Its important because its going to bankrupt the councils, as they are already pushing to find millions of quid for the grotesque butcher Pickles. While the monster wastes £500000 on limousines: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/11/10/story_n_6132522.html and £30000+ on biscuits a year: http://www.brentwoodweeklynews.co.uk/news/localnews/10996565.Biscuit_figure_at_Eric_Pickles__department__wrong_/ its ordinary people that are picking up the tab, a hallmark of this government is that the less money you have, the more the government want: http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/court-cases-chaos-and-soaring-debt-as-council-tax-reform-unravels/ The impact of council tax benefit is one of the least known of all the Condem ‘reforms’. Its a complete postcode lottery, some councils like that of remarkable Rahman can completely wipe theirs out: http://www.towerhamlets.gov.uk/lgsl/1001-1050/1002_mayor.aspx My council made a more gradual transition: http://www.walthamforest.gov.uk/pages/services/council-tax-annual-notification.aspx It is an area which I would like to ask the False Economy campaign to investigate. Its no surprise that tenant evictions are now at an all term high: http://www.insidehousing.co.uk/home/news/tenant-evictions-reach-an-all-time-high/7006850.article?utm_medium=email&utm_source=Ocean+Media+&utm_campaign=5015410_ih-daily-17.11.14et&dm_i=1HH2,2ZHWY,FK92RM,AR1FV,1


In the grim period of crashing into the iceberg, benefit sanctions for disabled people are now shooting up at an alarming rate: http://streetskitchen.co.uk/?p=1468 Its disgusting to watch my community being terrorized by this bunch of mega rich toffs. Every day I read of new people who have taken their lives after having their benefits slashed: http://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/11604492.Double_amputee_killed_himself_after_benefits_slashed__say_anguished_family/ Ludicrously the DWP put the actual figure at 60 since 2012: http://disabilitynewsservice.com/2014/11/dwp-admits-investigating-60-benefit-related-deaths-since-2012/ The truth was bound to eventually emerge, its now emerging: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/15/coalition-helped-rich-hitting-poor-george-osborne Four out of five referrals to Food Banks are directly because of benefit sanctions: http://www.insidehousing.co.uk/care/ymca-four-out-of-five-foodbank-referrals-due-to-benefit-sanctions/7006838.article?utm_medium=email&utm_source=Ocean+Media+&utm_campaign=5008372_IH_daily-141114-LR&dm_i=1HH2,2ZCHG,FK92RM,AQKYD,1 At the Assembly Rooms in Chingford unemployed people were ordered to attend a job fair on Friday on threat of benefit sanctions: http://www.classwarparty.org.uk/unemployed-forced-attend-tory-party-event-threat-sanctions/ Chief fuckwit IDS was even there although the lying cunt made a quick exit: ‘Mr Duncan Smith arrived early to Chingford Assembly Hall in Station Road, spoke to the 40-plus businesses and public sector employees and then left before the doors opened to the public.’ (Chingford Guardian 14/11/14).

A rare MP I actually like is Andy Sawford, the MP of Corby. Mr Sawford writes a weekly newsletter, an amusing part of it deals with the £1.7 billion EU surchage accrued by the fuckwit Osborne: “On Monday (10-11-14) the Chancellor was asked an Urgent Question in the House of Commons about the £1.7 billion surcharge that Britain has been asked to pay to the EU Budget. The backdated bill of £1.7 billion is clearly unacceptable and I am sure that many people will share my disappointment and frustration at the way the Government and the EU Commission have mishandled this. The Treasury must have been aware that Britain was going to be hit with a larger bill from the EU and yet the Prime Minister and the Chancellor did nothing about it. Now the Chancellor is claiming that he has halved this Bill but this account is not supported by any other EU Finance Minister or independent commentator. The reality is that the Chancellor has failed to reduce our contribution by a single penny in the last two weeks and has totally failed to get a better deal for the British taxpayer. Instead, he is now simply counting a rebate that Britain was due anyway and was never in doubt. The British people deserve better than this. We need a Government that can build alliances in Europe and deliver for Britain.” Similar Tory arrogance is seen in the Newsletter of Geoffrey Clifton-Brown (Tory Cotswolds); here the millionaire nebbish is blathering on about education for disabled people: “I was also pleased to visit the National Star College, with whom I have worked for many years. It is a truly fantastic institution which provides excellent care and services to its students, many of whom have severe mental and physical needs and the College does a wonderful job in teaching them how to overcome these disabilities and lead as normal a life as possible. Whilst I was visiting I participated in a documentary about the life of the students which is likely to appear on the BBC. In the meantime I am continuing my campaign for fair funding for the College. The National Star College benefits from some of the most up to date and innovative technology available. For example I met one student who could not speak, but has a computer where they can focus their eyes on a letter to form words. This is a remarkable thing which hugely improves their quality of life. ” (14-11-14) The out of touch klutz Brandon Lewis (Tory Great Yarmouth) vaunts employment figures in his weekly newsletter: “Figures released by the Office for National Statistics show more good news for Great Yarmouth. Compared to October 2010, the number of Great Yarmouth residents claiming JSA has fallen by 41.5%. These figures are in line with the good news across the UK, with employment up by 694,000 people since last year.” (14-11-14) Yes, and we’re all in it together, init.
Only now, and with telling arrogance, are Labour starting to realise that there is a threat to them from the left from the Green party: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/a-green-threat-to-labour-waits-in-the-wings-9863265.html. I joined the Green party today. Labour are starting to realise that a so called ‘Green surge’ could keep them out of Westminster, in the same way as UKIP are also preventing the Tories. Its really shaken up timid Labour: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/16/labour-ed-miliband-green-vote-pitch-brighton Its a reason why everyone must push this petition: https://www.change.org/p/bbc-itv-channel-4-sky-include-the-green-party-in-the-tv-leaders-debates-ahead-of-the-2015-general-election The rise of UKIP is symptomatic of hitting the iceberg, the UKIP surge in is about to take Rochester and Strood despite the uncharismatic Reckless: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ukip-victory-rochester-by-election-could-458199
The policies of the Greens are far more radical than pathetic Labour can go, but sad Labour are also under pressure from the SNP. Some people in Labour are pushing the nebbish Jim Murphy to Labour leader in Scotland, and this hot air balloon has rightly been pricked by Red Len: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/scotland/11230007/Len-McCluskey-Labour-will-lose-general-election-if-Jim-Murphy-is-elected-Scottish-leader.html Sturgeon is a canny player, the left in Scotland have got their act together: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/11/14/nicola-sturgeon-scotland-_n_6157536.html?1415968296&utm_hp_ref=uk

Meanwhile the NHS is still in crisis: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/nov/14/colchester-hospital-sedation-restraint-cqc-nhs-crisis But its actually not what filthy DC is most scared of. Filthy DC is scared of another big banking collapse: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/nov/16/david-cameron-third-eurozone-recession-g20-warning The next big banking collapse is not at all a surprise actually. Its the iceberg, everyone in my community has been looking at it for years, scratching their heads. The Westmonster in its arrogance is now complacent. Last week the fuckers were caught out again. The newsletter of Chris Leslie (Labour Nottingham East) writes (14-11-14): “Yet another banking scandal came to the fore this week when the Financial Conduct Authority announced fines for several of the major banks who had been engaged in manipulating the foreign exchange benchmark prices in order to boost their own traders’ profits and bonuses, rather than in the interests of their clients. I discussed this scandal as the news broke on Tuesday’s BBC Newsnight programme and called for tougher reform – something I tried to push Ministers on years ago, but they ignored.” You would think the Tool-box would do the sensible thing and plough this £1.1 billion windfall into the NHS. But meanwhile we have a bunch of fuckwits with control of the steering wheel of the doughty ship Britannia, saying to each other, “the iceberg is irrelevant. What’s important is shifting the position of the fucking deck chairs.” A lot of people have been shouting at them, experts have been saying what is wrong, but instead of listening the twerps have had their fingers in their ears. The toffs have fiddled while Rome has burnt, like undisciplined children they have shouted together “la, la, la, we can’t hear you”. Instead dirty shmuck DC is frantically pushing the TTIP, a deal which would considerably fuck up humanity: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/politics/g20-summit-cameron-promises-to-fire-rocket-boosters-under-controversial-euus-ttip-trade-deal-9864000.html


Brilliant Sue Marsh has asked bloggers to blog this petition: http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/who-will-watch-watchmen-open-letter-to.html?spref=fb

The toffs don’t give a damn about public feelings, on the contrary they regard ordinary people with absolute contempt. All that the fuckwits care about is money. Profit trumps every other consideration. But the public enthusiasm for cuts is evaporating, as the lion shakes off its slumber and scratches its head: http://rt.com/uk/204931-austerity-fatigue-uk-dissent/ Nonetheless the idiots who decide on Labour party policy are saying that they will continue the notorious PIP assessments if they get elected: http://www.snp.org/media-centre/news/2014/nov/labour-votes-continue-welfare-cuts-disabled The banking industry are again showing their colours: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf7a53y9RRM&feature=youtu.be So has Farage: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/nigel-farage-caught-camera-admitting-4617184 Rachel Reeves promptly followed suit, she did this by asking advice from PriceWaterHouseCoopers, in doing so she was sleeping with the enemy: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2014/11/13/poll-is-it-time-for-rachel-reeves-to-go/ Small wonder that Labour is doing so badly in the polls and were at 29% last week (its 14/11/14): http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/12/miliband-fightback-labour-victims-zero-zero-britain?utm_content=buffereebf6&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Greed is not associated with brains. Overly greedy people make mistakes, but they always used to get away with it. Class War is about greed, but the lying bastards will not be getting Remarkable Rahman: http://www.counterfire.org/news/17516-lutfur-rahman-not-under-attack-for-what-he-s-done-wrong-but-for-what-he-s-done-right Scotland seems no nearer to devolution, its going to be an issue at the GE: http://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2014/11/13/tory-rebels-threaten-to-derail-cameron-s-scottish-devolution The longer the matter drags on, the greater the anger the Scottish people will feel, but that’s OK as neoliberals only think about right NOW, the easy buck, the short term. When Red Ed argued Tory policies at Edinburgh he showed which side he was on, no wonder he was heckled: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/09/16/scottish-independence-ed-miliband_n_5829868.html Red Ed might talk about getting rid of the bedroom tax, he might burble about reversing the £3 billion tax cut for millionaires, repealling the Heath and Social Care Act, but two things he cannot bring himself to do are repeal the Welfare Reform Act and repeal the Legal Aid Act. Whatever he does for the 99% must be set against these two. Small wonder he languishes in the polls, small wonder that the UKIP pretenders can make inroads in Labour strongholds. Filthy Farage may pretend he’s not a part of the establishment but when he gets elected the ferocity of the cuts will be unabated.
Tonight is an important night for disadvantaged people, tonight is the night when the hypocrites wheel out Children In Need (CIN). CIN is a British phenomena, like a slap in the face, its impossible to escape the hypocrisy that while at one moment we are raising considerable sums for disadvantaged kids and patting ourselves on the back for each donation, on the hand we are condemning a whole generation of children to grinding poverty, destitution and despair just so the bloated elite can be more bloated. Its alright for ‘funny man’ Gryff Rhys Jones to raise dosh for kids: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p029nhg9 but the ‘funny man’ has the temerity to have a greedy moan about mansion tax: http://www.theguardian.com/culture/shortcuts/2014/nov/03/griff-rhys-jones-leave-country-labour-mansion-tax I used to think Jones was amusing, but I am no longer laughing. If he wants to fuck off, let him fuck right off, with his £20000000 fortune and house in Fitzrovia. But leaving the arse Jones aside, there is more in CIN than meets the eye. CIN is about ordinary people caring about other ordinary people, its about a generosity of spirit from across British society. It has a popuarity which the Tool-box can never dream of. British social attitudes have moved significantly, filthy Osborne is a greedy snide fuckwit, he wont be on the ball.


It does not take much digging to embarass the government. Anyone who can be bothered can study a computer for five minutes and see the way this government have fucked over ordinary people. Someone more qualified than most to point out the shite is Professsor Haarris, someone meshugennah Iain Duncan Smith employed to to carry out a Government review of fuel poverty. Professor Harris has exposed the myth that such a system could work, and that it is actually fair: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/iain-duncan-smiths-universal-credit-4611730 But what Harris did not say is that the Toolbox will have to get used to continuous embarressment. Total nitwit George Osborne may wear a smug self satisfied expression but when the shit hits the fan, his name will be synonymous with misery, stupidity, greed and man’s inhumanity to man.

With only weak opposition, UKIP look likely to take Rochester and Strood. With their lightening touch and instinctive grasp of nuances, pathetic Labour are barely campaigning for this seat: http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/11/11/rochester-reveals-a-left-whic-lost-its-voice-h When UKIP stand face to face with the Tories it could be the slap in the face the great British public needs, when they are mutually embarressed, 95% of their votes probably come from the single idea that UKIP are not a part of the establishment. Currently (13-11-14) the poll of guru Lord Ashcroft puts the Tories on 32%, Labour on 17% and UKIP on 44%: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-30020326 As Bennett from the Greens puts it, UKIP voters are simply “lashing out” like a “small child”: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/11/natalie-bennett-ukip-voters-are-simply-lashing-out-small-child-video No one can pretend Medway Hospital is not in a crisis: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/09/rochester-byelection-local-health-immigration-medway-hospital and yet the hypocrites at UKIP are actively campaigning over it, its going to be a massive slap in the face for the Medway electorate when Farage joins filthy DC. The A+E at Medway Hospital remains in a crisis: http://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/ae-in-state-of-crisis-24040/

The NHS is a major source of embarrassment to the Toolbox, the recent admission that the reforms were a fucking mistake are no surprise: http://nhap.org/huge-embarrassment-tories-nhs-admission/ As a direct result of these reforrms, and a range of complex other issues, the first A and E to be in meltdown is at Northwick Park Hospital in North West London. This was entirely predictable, indeed all the West London Hospitals are now in a crisis: http://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/news/local-news/west-london-hospitals-breaking-under-8081646 Watching that situation deteriorate over the next six months will be an eye opening experience for the electorate. Most people have no idea they are a part of a vicious class war, they are about to discover it en masse. The financial position of the NHS is now fucking dire: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/nhs-in-crisis-english-health-service-runs-500m-deficit-in-just-three-months-9744702.html It looks like its approaching a tipping point.

Total weirdo Grayling is an embarrassment. The dirty cocknugget is now widely detested. This does not disturb Grayling of course, public hatred can still rise considerably, the changes which Grayling is shoving through are crude, unjust and expensive: http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/grayling-wasting-money.html A major cock-up in the prison service is increasingly hard to deny: http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/prison-in-crisis-7.html Jackass Grayling was recently confronted by Durham MP Roberta Blackman-Woods who voiced the concerns of constituents about the “mounting chaos linked to IT systems, the potential risks to the public, the reduced contact with offenders”. Smug bastard Grayling retorted by saying, “I am delighted by the outcome” (Morning Star 12-11-14), the nasty little shit is full of arrogant quips. A number of the Toolbox enjoy being hated, they are a miserable bunch, their contempt for the working class is complete. Grayling doesn’t give a shit, look how the evil putz is trying to fuck over people with mesothelioma: http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/11/12/moj-mulls-new-attempt-to-take-compensation-from-asbestos-vic Its hardly a surprise when we have someone not just useless, but also evil, that the Daily Express thinks he’s great: http://www.express.co.uk/comment/columnists/leo-mckinstry/396262/Chris-Grayling-At-last-the-minister-who-puts-the-public-first

Its actually really rare that I quote an article by Little-prick, but the fuckwit has written a blinder in the Daily Heil. Talking about the World War I tributes, and comparing them to the organised rage at Westminster, the rabid fuckwit comes out with veritable pearls, I have to quote the bastard: “Despite the political upheavals foisted upon us by our self-obsessed, self-regarding, self-selecting political elite, Britain remains a small ‘c’ conservative nation. Most of us are quietly patriotic, have reverence for those who serve in our armed forces and respect for others, even when we disagree. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for elements of our political class. We are ruled by out-of-touch careerists who hold the opinions of the people who pay their salaries in utter contempt. The BBC, which is supposed to serve the nation as a whole, delights in giving a megaphone to extremists, Left-wing bigots and pseudo revolutionaries. Increasingly, it seems we live in two Britains. One, which contains the quiet majority, is solid, self-sufficient, intent on maintaining decent standards and doing the right thing. The other, which is small but more voluble, is selfish, intolerant, attention-seeking and determined to rip up the old order. While millions have been paying a silent tribute at the Tower, a rabble of attention-seeking soi-disant anarchists brought chaos to Westminster, a few miles along the Thames. Demonstrators clashed with riot police, lobbed missiles, daubed graffiti and chanted: ‘One solution, revolution!’ Oh, for heaven’s sake, grow up.” http://www.dailymail.co.uk/columnists/article-2824520/While-millions-pay-silent-tribute-Tower-London-anarchists-bring-chaos-Westminster-proof-live-two-Britains-writes-RICHARD-LITTLEJOHN.html#ixzz3IlXY03rL Of course Little-prick goes on and on. But Little-prick will pipe down when the shit hits the fan, like so many, he conveniently forgets his working class roots: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Littlejohn Little-prick would have been NOTHING without the welfare state.

An enemy of the people are the enormously rich brothers Benyon. Its a complete disgrace the way which these super rich cunts are treating poor people. Here we have people who are fucking rich – so they buy the New Era Estate in Hoxton, and immediately push the rents right up, RIGHT UP. The bastard Benyon doesn’t give a fuck, he can turf out the old and the young, but the poor residents cannot get help from the local council. As a resident Pauline writes: “I’ve got an uncle who is 85, his wife is 90 and she has Alzheimer’s and is BLIND. There is going to be no provisions for us. We will have to be evicted by bailiffs before we are re-homed. We went down to the council and filled in the forms and they said we can’t be rehoused as we are not homeless. Mr Edward Benyon previously said they were going to knock it [the New Era estate] down. They would have done us a favour if they had knocked it down because then we would have been re-housed. As it is now we are all in limbo. People can no longer afford to live where they were brought up, we were all born round here.” http://hackneycitizen.co.uk/2014/07/01/new-era-estate-families-rent-hikes-benyon-landlord-takes-over/ Mr Benyon may rail at the culture of entitlement, but the multi-millionaire makes a huge amount of dosh from welfare: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/nov/10/millionaire-tory-mp-tenants-estate-flats-richard-benyon The toff may own huge swathes of UK, but he’s been caught with his snout in the trough – getting the state to buy the boiler for his Berkshire pile: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/rich-enjoy-free-fuel-taxpayers-4606379 No wonder iconic Russel Brand is now involved: http://www.hackneygazette.co.uk/news/russell_brand_leads_rent_hike_protest_around_hackney_1_3842483 Little-prick may lambast Brand as a: “sexually-incontinent ‘anti-capitalist’ hypocrite with a multi-million-dollar home in Hollywood and a history of serious illegal substance abuse”, but its very easy to mock the under-dog. As Mahatma Gandhi wrote: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/m/mahatmagan103630.html So stick that up your arse Little-prick, you odious little shit. There’s something really big looming on the horizon – and you know what – you’re part of it.

Among all the fuckwits, the evil shits and the mediocrities with too much money and moral bankruptcy, its rare to meet a politician with more than a shred of decency. Someone with moral calibre is the Independent Mayor of the Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman. Fantastic Lutfur has had to defend himself from attacks by the massive klutz Pickles, but the hit-squad met their match. (Morning Star, November 08-09/14) First of all the establishment tried to smear the great man with links to extremism. When the mud failed to stick, Pickles sent in a team from PricewaterhouseCoopers to sting for financial irregularities, but the result was complicated. Lutfur has got away with it: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/davehillblog/2014/nov/10/tower-hamlets-lessons-of-the-lutfur-rahman-affair Remarkable Rahman was able to demonstrate that there is an answer to grinding austerity. “We absorbed the cost of council tax benefit, we paid council staff the living wage and we bailed out 2500 families placed at risk by the Tories’ bedroom tax.” (Rahman in MS). Small wonder that Pickles hates him so much, but the grotesque butcher is full of hate.

A sense of entitlement

A sense of entitlement, a sense that privilege must be rewarded, has blighted the British establishment. Take the case of the mass murderer Pickles for example. The bloated nebbish is famed for his sense of entitlement. The grotesque arse squanders public money like there is no tomorrow. Look at his limousines: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/tory-minister-eric-pickles-spends-4600153 Every year Pickles lavishes money on biscuits, while lecturing everyone else to spend less: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/eric-pickles-tea-biscuits-bill-3062584 When it comes to the culture of entitlement there is noone better to talk about it then the monster IDS: “This is about redefining the relationship between benefit claimants and the state. The welfare state will support people when they fall on hard times, but in return they need to meet some contracted responsibilities agreed with a Jobcentre Plus adviser. It’s a fair deal people will have to sign up to in return for receiving support from the state. Our reforms are ushering in a new culture of conditionality and the Claimant Commitment lies at the heart of this”. http://www.stroudnewsandjournal.co.uk/news/national/10637222.print/ Borisconi has a sense of entitlement, the greedy putz can hardly contain himself trying to defend killer Miller in April 2014, the start of the pogrom: “She is staying. I don’t know the facts of the case in great detail but it seems to me she is being hounded quite a lot and I suppose my natural sympathies go out to people being in a hounded situation. How about that? There she is, she’s being hounded. I think what you need is a… sort it out by having proper independent system of evaluating what is owed and you cannot let the MPs do it themselves.” http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/maria-miller-is-being-hounded-over-expenses-row-claims-boris-johnson-9245434.html Borisconi has made a career apologising for rich cunts. Nonetheless Borisconi will have his hands full apologising for the Tool-box. Watching the car crash with excrutiating slowness will take a strong stomach, he will be blanching now the mega cunts Maximus have taken over the poisoned chalice: http://tompride.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/meet-maximus-the-new-atos-but-even-worse/ The righteous criminals who encouraged Maximus need to be set on by the blood-hounds of Truss.

Despite the oustanding sense of entitlement, the tool-box are vastly incompetent in every conceivable area. Take the detention centre at Yarl’s Wood, its been fucked up by Serco: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/serco-faces-fresh-allegations-over-its-running-of-yarls-wood-detention-centre-9849243.html The out sourcing actually follows a pattern, the Toolbox have gone out of their way to bring out sourcing bastards into every aspect of British life. The massive outsourcing is a great experiment – its consequence is unknown, its a cornerstone of the Cameron project. They’ll be nothing to stop it when the shit hits the fan. It will be disgusting to watch, but it will be a necessary way to prod the British lion. Only catastrophes will pop the balloons of Farage, Borisconi and the fucking Toolbox. The Toolbox have spent £88000000000 on outsourcing. Just so that their guilded mates can make fast bucks, everything Brits have achieved has been smashed. As we read the desperate tale of Kate’s woman: http://www.katebelgrave.com/2014/11/24-careworker-on-zero-hours-and-facing-eviction-from-focus-e15/ we can feel our blood boil. But you shouldn’t worry yourself – go and watch some trite on TV, maybe in the dull face of Noel Edmonds you can find some truth. Do nothing for God’s sake. The bastard Blair spent £45000000000 on out sourcing, its something the Toolbox are going far beyond, even further than the Yankies – see for example http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/oct/04/ministry-of-defence-outsourcing-buying

With their sense of entitlement, when the Toolbox took away the NHS, they left noone in charge: http://www.politics.co.uk/news/2014/11/10/it-s-official-no-one-knows-who-is-in-charge-of-the-nhs Instead of being ashamed of their extraordinary greed and incompetance, the Toolbox are drawing up plans for another £30000000000 of spending cuts after the GE: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/10/treasury-civil-service-spending-cuts-plan-general-election As expected, and predicted by all the specialists the eye watering cuts made to the NHS in North West London are causing meltdown, those specialists were vindicated: http://wembleymatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/gp-says-nw-london-hospitals-under.html Study this hospital and you will see what melt down looks like. Then we have to consider how much worse and comprehensive it will be by the GE. But don’t worry – here is some filthy DC, burbling hypocritically in 2006: “So, for me, it is not just a question of saying the NHS is safe in my hands – of course it will be. My family is so often in the hands of the NHS, so I want them to be safe there.” He promised “no more pointless and disruptive reorganisations”. Instead, change would be “driven by the wishes and needs of NHS professionals and patients”: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/5403798.stm Yes, enjoy the carefree laughter of the playboy prince, revel in the antiquated notion that UK will never be in the third world. In fact take a leaf from the vastly wealthy brothers Benyon.
“Until this happened I had no clue about politics; it’s opened my eyes to how people like us are treated,” Garratt says. She fits what for me has become a recognisable type in the housing crisis: the mother who never used to think of herself as “political” until – bam! – an existential threat comes her way and she fights like mad. Then this mild woman gets on to Benyon’s Tory party and its friends in the press: “They make us turn on each other. Bloody asylum seekers are the problem; people on benefits are the scum of the earth. And we’re coming to a point where people like us, working people, finally say, ‘You know what? you’re the problem. We’ve had enough of people like you.’” http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/nov/10/millionaire-tory-mp-tenants-estate-flats-richard-benyon
