‘George Osborne signalled the start of the biggest ever sell-off of public assets in a speech to the CBI business conference last night.

The Chancellor said the government would raise more than £23billion this year – a new record – by privatising stakes in Eurostar, Lloyds and the student loan book.

He also revealed that Government departments have already been ordered to start finding extra savings ahead of the emergency budget in July, as he bids to wipe out the government deficit within just two years.’

Social landlords expect cuts to trigger new wave of homelessness

Social landlords expect cuts to trigger new wave of homelessness 

Report based on survey of English housing associations and councils suggests government moves to restrict benefits will result in a surge in tenant evictions

Social landlords are expecting a surge in rent arrears, tenant evictions and homelessness as the government pushes ahead with more welfare cuts and changes, according to new research.

The continuing impact of the bedroom tax, together with moves to extend the benefit cap and impose further limits on housing benefit, will put further financial pressure on tenants, predicts a report by consultants Grant Thornton.

It concludes that the ability of councils and housing associations to mitigate growing arrears has been severely eroded, and increasing numbers are issuing possession orders to tenants who have fallen behind with the rent.

Grant Thornton’s survey of English housing associations and local authorities revealed that a majority had seen a rise in average rent arrears over the past two years, with over a fifth reporting a “sharp increase” in eviction notices being served.

Last week, official statistics showed that tenant evictions reached a six-year high in the first three months of 2015. Over the same period, social landlords made 27,000 possession claims – the first stage in the legal process leading to an eviction.

Councils are also feeling the strain of increased evictions in the private rented sector, with 59% reporting an increase in applications for social housing from tenants who had been ejected by private landlords.

The threat of further evictions will rise after a cut in the budget for discretionary housing payments (DHP) from £165m to £125m this year, the report says. DHP grants, which help tenants with rent shortfalls caused by welfare reform, were originally intended as a temporary measure to enable tenants to stay in their home while they got a job or arranged a move to a smaller property.

‘We hold our doors so they attack in vain, 

but the dissposses can never reign, 

The Tories darkness to desolate our inner peace

Our societal tolerance of this must now cease!

Tory bullies set a furious expedition of fierce hosting with frowning scorn as they devise with fanatical commitment social housing benefit cuts that do not match the ‘real’ agenda of living.

Like a book of hideous horrors, ravenous eyes of blue will rip apart the welfare state budget and the knock on affect will be catastrophic, a real cataclysm of hardship and homelessness.

Feeling powerless is exalted to highest when you have no base, no home and are at the mercy of the state. 

Its cold, void of empathy. 

It’s frighteningly undignified and humilation upon the face of the mother who has no front door key, who holds her child without cover and stands in front of housing officers who follow the tail of the one in front.

An unwelcome forced intimacy of front line reception housing, is filled with love abandon policies, evil in print and administrators unwilling to disobey and put humanity first before unclean wisdom and policy.

You face a plethora of hostile dialogues of conditions and financial sanctions before you are shunted off to unsuitable temporary accommadation and for what.

How many empty properties are there, and how many unscrupulous rich landlords are there?

Always a corrupt capitalist society will put profit before people and this is no exception and it helps only the wealthy.

‘David Cameron’s former chief strategist has launched a stinging attack on the ‘insular ruling class’ threatening Britain’s democracy.

Steve Hilton said too many of those at the heart of government go to the same dinner parties and send their children to the same schools.

He said the UK’s political system is now in ‘crisis’ because the same type of people stay in charge whatever the outcome of the elections.

In what will be seen as a criticism of the ‘chumocracy’ of his former boss, Mr Hilton warned: ‘Our democracies are increasingly captured by a ruling class that seeks to perpetuate its privileges.
‘Regardless of who’s in office, the same people are in power.’

‘Police will be forced to adopt a “paramilitary” style of enforcement if the government inflicts big budget cuts on them, the head of the police officers’ organisation has warned.

Steve White, chair of the Police Federation, said his 123,000 members, from police constables to inspectors, fear a move towards a more violent style of policing as they try to keep law and order with even fewer officers than now.

White told the Guardian that more cuts would be devastating: “You get a style of policing where the first options are teargas, rubber bullets and water cannon, which are the last options in the UK.”’

Police called after boy uses a RULER as pretend sword in playground game of ‘knights and dragons’

‘Police were called to a primary school after a nine-year-old boy was caught using a ruler as a pretend sword in a playground game of ‘knights and dragons’.

Teachers have been accused of overreacting after asking officers to speak to Kyron Bradley, who waved the ruler around as he played with two friends at St George’s Bickley CE Primary School, in Bromley, south London.

The youngster’s mother Natasha Bradley said she burst into tears after hearing police were being called over a ‘stupid game’.’

With blind obedience demanded everywhere, with dignity no longer sacred, we witness ruling elites oppress us in every step building up tensions that will bring a summer of civil disruption for sure.

The dispossess cannot reign and the Tory government like banded thieves are stealing freedoms away from the poor in the name of economic sanctions.

Our Tory ‘iron fist’s of blue’ are a lot of things, but ‘stupid’ isn’t one of them. They know protesting is coming and they want to criminalise all protesters and reign in police domination.

An absolute catastrophic shattering of street life democracy.

George Osborne to hold SECOND Budget of year – and expect the axe to fall on welfare

Second Budget: George Osborne will make spending cuts harsher than we all thought

George Osborne will announce huge cuts to public services and welfare in his first all-Tory Budget.

The Chancellor has revealed he is planning to declare a second Budget of the year on July 8.

The Tory axeman already formed a budget in March, but will now slash spending and support for struggling families even more because his actions are not limited by Lib Dem coalition partners.

Mr Osborne said: “On the 8th of July I am going to take the unusual step of having a second Budget of the year.

“I don’t want to wait to turn the promises we made in the election into a reality.”

Street Democracy writes:

Like banded thieves in the night this Tory budget will steal freedoms from the disempowered, expel them further from mainstream society, economically bludgeoned them to death and assassinate the characters of any in need of welfare.

Dismembering society further a Tory darkness addiction to hurt the poor, war upon the poor and socially disgrace them further by taking money from them is to endure another 5 years of lethal welfare cuts.

They have mastered a sinister art of manufacturing dehumanisation techniques disguised as saintly projects that echo draconian strategies of a brutal oppressive Tory machine of brilliant blue.

The punishing state as already begun, but worse is to come.

Like a ‘Red Briefcase of Doom’ carrying hideous horrors, the budget George Osbourne, a love abandoned soulless suit of blue, will direct a atmosphere to assassinate the welfare state.

We can only wait as the malevolent murmurs whisper suggestive financial slaughter, and prey for our communities and families sake that the destruction is not devastating.

This pursuit of the hungry shows the monstrous side of modern Britain

This pursuit of the hungry shows the monstrous side of modern Britain

new Friday 15th May 2015 at 09:32 By David Icke

‘In the BBC’s recent Poldark drama, Jim Carter, an unemployed tin miner, is caught poaching the local gentry’s rabbit to feed his hungry family. Despite pleas for clemency Jim is made an example of by the judge, sentenced to two years, and subsequently dies in jail, paying the ultimate penalty for a minor food theft.

Perhaps someone at the Hetton Road Tesco Express in Sunderland felt a similar urge to make an example when, after spotting people on CCTV sifting through out-of-date groceries at the back of the store in January, they picked up the phone to the police. Or maybe they were simply following company protocol. Either way, the resulting court case has turned out to be a spectacular own goal for Tesco.’

‘Prosecutor Lee Poppett said the couple had raised suspicion after being seen on a Sunderland City Council CCTV camera in the secure compound behind the store at midnight.
They were in the process of removing a pallet of food stuffs from the compound when they were intercepted by police.’
(Sunderland Echo…under the heading ‘Freegan’ wife sold neighbour’s vacuum to buy drugs – and has 28 previous convictions for 60 crimes’. )

She was also dealt with for two offences of theft/shoplifting sentence having been deferred earlier on the basis that she stay out of trouble, and she was also in breach of a suspended sentence for wounding two years earlier.

COME ON Graun…if the Sunderland Echo can report it accurately I’m sure you could give it a go. This is shockingly lazy journalism which does you no credit. Leaving aside that this was ‘a pallet of foodstuffs’ rather than a couple of out-of-date sandwiches, how else would you want the Criminal Justice System to deal with a woman with 28 previous convictions for 60 offences-including, for God’s sake, wounding?! Oh, and she nicked (intercepted) a new vacuum cleaner being delivered to her neighbour and sold it to pay for drugs…or rather that’s what she admitted to police rather than endure the shame of telling them she needed the money to buy food. The impression you gave me (and intended to give) when I read this article was that of a decent couple reduced to rummaging in bins, and of the ‘monstous’ bastards at Tesco (who should sue you given the prominence you’ve given to them in the photo) and the police grinding them into the ground. Was it the ‘whole truth’? I think not-but why do I have to go to the Sunderland Echo to get it? Yesterdays nonsense about the Prince of Wales’ letters was at least debatable. This is shoddy rubbish.

The mind’s of how others choose to survive is of consequence of how society is governed.

We face a dreadful interval into our lives that can damage the human psyche for many, not all, some for some of the time, many all of the time.

To have no money is to have no power. Social exclusion is a heavy burden to carry when a crushing force of domination spears hatred at you from all angles.

Drug addiction, shoplifting, child neglect, debt and any other ill you can mention isn’t necessarily a reason of poverty, but blaming an individual for any of the above without full facts is again short-sighted.

We  have innately decent people place themselves in disastrous situations.

Do we condemn without ever knowing the full story?

Heavily based sorrow drives some to escapism at great cost to themselves. To try to live an existence away from victimhood within our communities.

Our society is a culture of divisions, and the blame of hate towards some who are victims of an aggressive political stance who go to great lengths to heal themselves, even if it is against the law, needs addressing.

Iain Duncan Smith hails success of benefit cap as evictions hit record levels

Iain Duncan Smith has hailed the success of the benefit cap – on the same day that the Ministry of Justice reported a record number evictions among renting households.

The Work and Pensions Secretary said the cap provided “a clear incentive to people to get into work”, as figures showed thousands of capped households were now claiming working tax credits instead.

But Shelter chief executive Campbell Robb said the government’s welfare cuts combined with “sky-high housing costs” had forced thousands of people out of their homes.

According to the latest figures from the Department of Work and Pensions, 23,100 households had their housing benefit capped during February with over 60% being single parent families.

Of the overall total, 83% were capped by £100 or less a week; 59% had between one and four children, and 63% were a single parent with child dependants.

Evictions of rental tenants hit a record high as homeless charity Shelter calls for Government to act

 

 

 

Street Democracy writes:

 

The Tory’s dynamic force of bullying expeditions shunting the poor from place to place is a monumental mechanism to disempower, humiliate and trash further the poorest from society.

 

Home’s for the poverty stricken are temporary short term glorified B & B’s, in fact you needn’t bother unpacking.

Volleying evil and smashing it down upon the poorest is social and political disempowerment as the ‘dissposses cannot reign’, minds full of survival techniques there isn’t room for much else.

 

The elegant rape of the minds of the poorest, with stress and evictions, with homelessness, with no money for a place to live, assassinates the character of those financially struggling to survive.

 

A bombardment of red ‘you owe money’ letters, hostile dialogues with no empathy is nothing more than ‘evil in print’ land in your home as a warrantless invasion, a forced intimacy of unwelcoming into your home.

 

Homes become dark eerie frightening places with evictions hanging over your head. You cannot relax, you feel unwelcome and your dignity is not sacred. Life is boxed and placed in black bin liners.

 

The uncertainty is agony. A true cataclysmic shattering of the self, who you are, with no stability and social expulsion from society as a temporary homeless person or family of the under class.

Iain Duncan ‘soulless suit’ Smith, will devour the low income earners, the unemployed and disabled people as a form of ethnic cleansing to price the poor out of areas and richer tenants in.

 

He has no conscience and is morally bankrupt for certain.

Anti-Tory protesters are met with police violence

noam-chomskys-quotes-1

Protesters met with frownful scorn, by a militarised policing who seem, frantically enraged by the protesters presence to critique and peacefully demonstrate their civil rights.

Our political and corporate superiors however, fear this and is the reason why are police are militarised, in order to annihilate ordinary strength met within the streets of democracy.

We are convulsed by indescribable frustration as we listen to the Tory elites intellect of pure ‘sounds of insanity’ aswell as a sense of ravenous fear of the public. So they hide behind an ever impending police state.52c68-76936_325017874280597_1346133833_n

Displayed as evil in print, policies to deliberately herd and suppress, forces protesters into uniting as innately decent people should against tyrants.

Yet, this is deemed criminal, by over zealous police dressed for civil war, people have to be brave now to protest.

The criminalization of protesting, is the silencing of dissent, and the shutting down of democracy.  It is the fuelling of discontent and closure of all dialogues of reason.2182a-971022_267085910101343_1969177191_n2b1

We’re met by a commanding language of force by a fierce presentation, expedition and an evil confrontation, while our voices and point of being are taken over with self-protection of police brutality.

It is a forced intimacy of unapologetic methods to destroy critical thinking with fear. A warrantless invasion into the lives with a legal mass rampage to destroy people power in one hit.

Mass arrests and violence reported as police respond to first demonstrations against the new government


POLICE violence and mass arrests marked the first weekend of the new Tory government as thousands of young people took to the streets to voice their anger over further austerity measures.

Despite having been called just days before Thursday’s elections, the Fuck the Tory Government protest saw over 2,000 people march on Downing Street.

But the peaceful protest turned sour when, after three hours of causing havoc with central London’s traffic, protesters and police clashed on Whitehall in scenes reminiscent of the 2010 student movement.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that 15 people had been arrested, with several protesters reporting excessive use of violence by the police.

LSE student Daphne Wikken said: “I have never experienced such extreme force of police violence. “My legs are bruised everywhere and I cut my arm.
