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.

True Tory British Values: Man forced to live on FLOUR & WATER – woman forced to stop chemotherapy

Man forced to live on FLOUR & WATER – woman forced to stop chemotherapy 

BqKMJwNCEAEk9ej

A true psychopath following an out of touch psychopathic Tory main frame is the career path of Iain Duncan Smith.

Street Democracy writes:

 

The Tory British values are the darkest societal values of our modern day age.

BkoYwlDIgAAh6nC

A fair and just British Tory infrastructure and social system, that steals wealth from the ordinary man and woman and destitute’s the poor all at the same time.

 

Allowing the poorest citizens not only to be socially cast out of main stream society, spitefully demonised as useless eaters, scroungers and other cruel name calling, but financially devastated beyond destitute for all those unable to work a full week.

Lib-Dem-Welfare-Reforms-Compassion-AAV

It is beyond scandalous how MP’s can excessively over use their expenses by millions of pounds heavily funded from the taxpayer and yet at the same time produce inept and slow kill policies towards the pittance of money awarded by the benefits sector.

They are malevolent policies empowered by human drones in suits who administer such brutal social policies within the benefit system.

BeAYGpsIIAA14Du

Sitting comfortably behind their overused battered desks they give these policies the undeserving power it needs to survive and operate, like some toxic rampage, they unleash these heartless policies to the most poorest people.

Unwittingly they reconfigure our culture to further impoverish the poor as acceptable without thinking if their position is morally right to inflict such financial pain.

137264055

Localising financial blackmail, standardising impoverishment and amplifying misery by work programme enslavement.

Benefit agents and their colleagues within Work Programmes dig new pathways of magnificent tragedies, and this is one of many.

In Crawley I know of families where the working parent is too ill to work and is being penalised heavily forcing her to miss meals and encourage her to a new level of debt around her neck.

385294_195107567306966_1850351962_n

The Tories unwarranted prejudice against the unemployed, their drivel of spiteful name calling is seemingly lapped up by legions of no empathy low level civil servants who don’t recognise ‘enslavement and financial blackmail’ when its right in front of them.

CONTROVERSIAL changes to the welfare system are forcing vulnerable people in Bournemouth and Poole to make life-changing decisions, a poverty summit has heard.

Richard Bristow, the manager of Poole Citizens’ Advice Bureau, cited a case where a man with learning disabilities was living on a paste made from flour and water after his benefits were suspended and another where a woman with breast cancer was forced to stop chemotherapy because she was assessed as ineligible for benefits.

He told the audience at Bournemouth University that CAB staff regularly saw Bournemouth and Poole residents who were facing an endless battle to make ends meet.

He said: “Some aspects (of the benefit system) appear to penalise anybody who requires help from the state.

“The bedroom tax in particular is having an insidious impact, especially when there’s no accommodation people can move into.

The financial slaughter came unexpected after millions of poor had agreed financial agreements to pay for items to furnish homes-left now with debts piling and no money for food.

Street Democracy writes:

This is very late.

This toxic form of social policy has shunted the poor out of the political apparatus, silencing their voices, ignoring the pleas of desperate families so poor, they’re missing meals.

It was astounding to even consider how staff at the Job Centre actually found this punishing regime enjoyable at first by embracing this hostile format from 9-5 pm.

No remorse, inflicting spiteful hostility,by a form of wilful arrogance of Job Centre staff suffering from DWP endemic brainwashing of be brutal to these no good parasites.

jobcentre-plus

The language of force, following DWP’s aggressive benefit agenda has standardised and localised oppression and bullying of the poor.

‘Take that, you lazy scrounger!’ Eagerly watching with cold eyes at how they have just amplified misery, legitimising the crushing of those financially destitute, and localising oppression at the same time.

However, the political awakening is growing faster and people, even Job Centre staff are witnessing a poison of toxic hate being directed to the unemployed.

BpwnPWdIMAArI8I

The astute minds busily working this aggressive benefit agenda should have thrown this into the gutter, the moment it landed on their Job Centre door way.

And get rid of G4S!, while you’re at complaining to the suited psychopath Iain Duncan Smith.

Our power grid is deeply corrupt, dysfunctional and filled with ‘out of touch’ Eton gutter and this should be addressed also.

atos-banner

Society conquered by psychopathic, no empathy elitism and corporate control have designed a punishing infrastructure, a real life detention centre for the disabled poor or those unable to contribute to a working week.

This powerless suit has destroyed the poor further and created social turmoil that is often unrepairable.

The Tories toxic pollution towards the poor has marginalised ‘us’ further into the social black hole, a form of exclusion from mainstream society while we are a washed with corporate crime and politicians milking hundreds of thousands from the expenses quota.

BerYtv_CAAAcKC0

The iron fist’s of blue slamming down upon the poor but the criminal elites, the corporate crimes are given tax breaks and tax payer’s money. Which is the real crime?

The financial destitution of innately decent folk have found themselves into serious financial trouble of money lending companies who have a perpetual debt and threat on their doorstep.

Society for the unemployed has turned into one giant detention centre, where prisoners or the unemployed are treated as criminals, treated as toxic for society, but heads are slowly beginning to turn to look into the eyes of the ‘far right’.

BXZszCUCUAAWu3O

Capitalism is corrupt, it was designed by the rich, for the rich and they have no intention of giving their wealth away.

A language of force, the hijacking of society by ruling elites standardising oppression, blaming with silly names of slander to the poor when in fact, their friends in high places are not paying millions in taxes.

Their corporate pals are also not paying millions in taxes, but let us not focus upon them.

Let us instead blame the unemployed for not wanting to work, long hours of hard gruelling labour that makes their limbs sore, for no pay or little pay in stead.

article-2528083-1A42DA6600000578-547_636x317

People are missing meals. In Crawley I know of this. The new diet of the poor is malnutrition, lacking in multiple vitamins. Cheap chemical based foods are just as toxic and do nothing for diets of the poor.

Let us hope now, minds are awakening to the corporate take over our government, and the corrupt political apparatus controlled by elites has conquered our society and not for the better for us, but only for those few, mainly politicians and corporate bosses.

Enough of this rubbish and well done to the Job Centre for finally waking up!

62835_364568370320347_552155377_n

Job Centre we need a language of humility, empathy and independence from government. If you don’t like the sound of a policy, then don’t localise it, send it back to Westminster and tell these elites ‘not good enough, try again’. Never fear David Cameron and likes!

Labour exchange employees say they are ‘depressed’ by making people destitute on the orders of Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith


FRONTLINE Jobcentre staff renewed their campaign yesterday to scrap Tory benefit sanctions they are forced to hand down to Britain’s worst off.

Civil servants protested at PCS conference about the impact of the government’s welfare policies they witness everyday at work.

Unemployment benefit of just £71 per week can be stopped for two weeks under sanctions introduced by Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith.

Jobcentre worker Martin Humphrey told delegates about the “depressing” task of telling people their benefits have been stopped.

He said: “We have to say to people that they have to live on nothing for two weeks.

“To make people destitute for two weeks is despicable.”

Jobcentre staff exposed once again how they are given sanction targets to hit — a claim Mr Duncan Smith continues to deny.

Britain’s pensioners are also given just £110 a week while disabled people face cruel tests by private comapanies, PCS vice president John McInally pointed out.

He said the result has been soaring demand at food banks, a rise in homelessness and hate attacks on disabled people.

And he said: “As a union, we have a duty to stand up for our members and our services.

“It’s disgraceful that our members’ job to help people is being turned on its head in order to attack the most poor and vulnerable.”

Gluttonous Greed-Government MPs call for road charging

Government MPs call for road charging

Soon if you can’t pay you can’t be a member of society. The poor will be first- Banished from all forms of travel, the complete erosion of freedom.

 

 

Street Democracy writes:

The Hunger Game society is being adopted by governments.

It is being eagerly structured and socially engineered and is becoming more of our reality the more these venal psychopathic political ruling elites open their mouths.

Soon the lower classes will be out priced to travel.

This is nothing more than a corrupt form of capitalism, a control grid of totalitarianism of the ruling elites owning the corporations who sit in government controlling our lives.

BjWWU0TCcAAESZP

The poor excluded from travel if they can’t pay is an Orwellian 1984 society that needs to be shunned before it gets out of hand.

 

Travel for the rich is the social programme here and is obvious to anyone with eyes open.

A sophisticated form of repression is being instigated jeopardising citizens freedom that is being deliberately eroded bit by bit.

This political cesspit is enforcing an Orwellian infrastructure, obliterating the freedoms of the citizens, criminalising them for not having the money to function accordingly within society.

Enshrined into law is a psychopathic main frame of demonising the poor, penalising them and reducing their freedoms.

123

Freedom is being eroded bit by bit so the sleepies, the sheep of society don’t notice….at first.

 

Clarity-ANPR-screenshot

If you can’t pay you can’t drive, you can’t enter, you can’t travel by order of the government.

The moral core of our governments is disintegrating fast as the embodied corporate society will control the power grid. It is a corporation that will own the roads, that will demand payment that government will pay from our financial bill of road usage.

The controlled market principles will determine the prices and how fast they will rise.

takers

Social engineering has dumbed down skills, taking livelihoods away and now freedoms of travel will decimate the poor into a Hunger Game Society.

It will socially exclude the poor from travel, end of story.

Government MPs call for road charging

‘A Transport Select Committee report said investment needs to increase “substantially” during the next decade.

Traffic levels on motorways and A roads are predicted to rise 46 per cent by 2040.

MPs warned that revenue from fuel duty and vehicle excise duty is likely to drop, meaning road expenditure will “require new funding streams”.

One option would be continental-style toll charges on new roads or the use of tracking devices to charge vehicles for every mile they travel.’

Sen. Introduces Bill To Test Out Taxing Motorists For Every Mile They Drive

‘The California Legislature is looking at a voluntary program that would tax motorists for every mile they drive.

KCAL9’s Bobby Kaple reports that Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, introduced a bill to test out the vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax because the state’s gas tax was no longer bringing in the revenue it used to due to people driving more fuel efficient vehicles.

The program is modeled after ones in Oregon and Washington.

“We want to do as Washington and Oregon have done in a much bigger state with much longer commutes…to make sure that we find out whether it would work, whether the public would like it or not,” DeSaulnier said.’

Infiltrating a Punishing State, by demonisation tactics towards the unemployed from morally bankrupt unaccountable Tory politicians who have forcibly silenced the poor.

Street Democracy writes: 

Legions of Tory morally bankrupt politicians are drunk on power dictating absurdities that humiliate, demonise and penalise the out out of work, the unemployed and the working poor.

Heavy financial sanctions, a punishing agenda, enshrined into law also is guilty of silencing the poor, stripping them of all dignity and describing them with insults to shatter the minds of those vulnerable and in need of welfare benefits.

BeAYGpsIIAA14Du

Localising financial blackmail, this Punishing State is being given power by those front line administrators liaising with the unemployed. It is localising blackmail our government is acting more like a Mafia outfit.

This is modern day work programming of slave labour and manipulating employment figures to suit the Punishing State Tory agenda.

This political infrastructure has no humility towards the unemployed who stand in splendid isolation with all routes to democracy blocked and dug up.

The Job Centre staff are cold and hold no empathy turning this place into a detention centre of heavy and vital financial sanctions to destroy even the hardest of soul’s.

BghpgywCYAATlSM

It is so apparent the Tories are wealth accumulating and protecting their wealth, taking from the poor and blaming a spiteful game of demonising the poor.

This isn’t the way forward to a healthy economy or a healthy community with degrading and humiliating strategies for the unemployed while being demonised by government spineless, out of touch politicians. 

This is another Tory reckless work policy for the unemployed, that of work for your benefits of face loosing them.

The problem is, the work being offered may not be suitable, especially if you have been struck as fit for work when your mind and body is tells you otherwise.

BlRm8vKIUAARRXo

The new diet of today for the poor is of malnutrition. A Tory manifesto and demonisation principle thrown towards the unemployed, disabled people and those unable to work for health reasons.

If a single mother is finding life hard enough raising children by herself, there is no room for compassion, to allow her to grow and get accustomed to life, she has to work or loose her benefits.

If someone is getting over an operation, getting over mental health issues, there is no time to heal.

There is no time for these innocent, innately sensitive and decent people to deal with life without the heavy threats of blackmail by ruthless efficiency being slung at them.

Jobseekers face losing benefits if they refuse zero-hours contracts

‘Unemployed people who refuse to take controversial zero-hour contracts could face losing their benefits for up to three years, according to a report.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) confirmed that sanctions could be imposed on people who turn down an offer of work even if it came with no guarantee of a full-time wage.

This is possible because Universal Credit should adjust the levels of benefit automatically to correspond with the number of hours worked.’

A political iron fist of blue spiteful blame game and demonisation of the poor for daring to hoard a spare room of 6ft x6ft while the rich can hoard thousands of acres of land and property-causing scarcity in both areas and price hikes too!

Street Democracy writes:

The bedroom tax has amplified misery for social housing tenants.

A spiteful venomous political card of blaming and shaming the poor with propagandised political rubbish, dividing communities of those too stupid to see truth are socially condemning social housing tenants for daring to have a spare bedroom.

A humiliating and aggressive housing policy has caused so much hardship and expulsion from mainstream society by this hostile housing law.

BkyOH09CcAAEbMb

A sophisticated method of social cleansing-moving the poor out of social housing into rented accommodation. The evictions are happening forcing the poor out of their homes.

It isn’t solving the housing crisis and it won’t ever.

Larger homes are being left empty for young families fear of the bedroom tax re-creating over crowding.

A young couple with one child, where the husband has 2 older children from a previous all live in a 2 bedroom flat as his older children don’t live with him full time, only part time.

BlsxiR8IMAIG1be

It is a ‘Punishing State’ for daring to be poor. We are witnessing a propaganda strategy to divide communities and out cast the poorest. The bedroom tax is unfair and toxic by far.

An amputee from Crawley needs his spare room of 6ft x 5ft to house his bed, and life saving disability equipment. He won’t share a room with his much loved wife because he would keep her awake at night.

His body crippled with pain, he needs his spare room and is hit by the bedroom tax and labelled as a social annoyance just like all other victims.

The poor are witnessing society turning into a ‘Punishing State’. 

BjwfDVmIgAACQO4

Evict the poor into small privately rented homes. Large proportion of private landlords are Tories. The bedroom tax is an aggressive form of social cleansing.

The social housing tenant, many of whom are innately decent sensitive poor, are seeing the localisation of bullying, blackmail and the localising of punishment, demonisation and social outcasting.

In perpetual rent arrears, life is miserable. In perpetual debt life is filled with uncertainty and full of fear too.

BiZBiWUIIAA7Si3

Out of touch-disconnected liars from Westminster have declared a silent war upon the poor. The bedroom tax is to shock the poor into survival mode and cause this group to become socially excluded demonised as the reason for the housing crisis. In reality no social housing is being built and land is hoarded by corporations and the wealthy.

It is a housing policy that is choking to death the most vulnerable of people in a most degrading and humiliating manner by the Tory’s iron fist of blue slamming down upon the poorest.

Their disdain for the poor is most apparent.

The bedroom tax is a DNA damaging pursuit.

BjalWpgIgAEbDwm

It is causing social, mental and psychological stress, strain and trauma upon social housing tenants who are victims of the ‘children dare not leave home tax’.

Or don’t dare become out of work, ill or sick or even dare become disabled and be dependent upon the welfare state benefit ridicule system, or you will be penalised.

Eviction rate doubles under ‘unjust’ bedroom tax by 24Dash

A council’s eviction rate has doubled since the government’s controversial bedroom tax came into effect last April.

A freedom of information request found that Norwich City Council evicted 16 households due to rent arrears between April 2013 and January 2014, compared with eight in the same period the year before.

Green Party councillor Ash Haynes, who made the FOI request, said: “This is further evidence that the coalition government’s welfare reforms are not working. Their impact is being seen in evictions figures and lengths of food bank queues. While evictions are caused by multiple factors, the tax adds to the burden many face.

“Eviction is the worst fear of many tenants, many of whom are sacrificing all they can to make ends meet. Nobody should have to live with this fear, so I repeat the Green Party’s calls on the Labour city council cabinet to make a written public commitment that nobody will be evicted due to the bedroom tax.

Street Democracy writes:

This Tory socially engineered ‘Punishing State’ is forcibly exacerbating a collective social despair amongst those unable to escape this suppressive poverty trap.

It is trying to live in accordance to what society demands, is now impossible.

We are witnessing a sterile, no empathy, society now shunning the poor with no thanks from the spiteful unprofessional psychopathic Tory main frame that socially is demonising the lower classes.

Bewi5dXCQAAqQ8Q

Deliberate engineering of starving the social sector of essential funds while lavishing in 11% pay rise-corporate taxation cuts-tax breaks for the wealthy-bailouts of the criminal bankers-but demonisation for the benefit claimant.

If you buy the cheapest product and you claim benefits, you are now targeted, socially ripped apart and demonised for daring to be spend tax payers money to get it.

If you don’t buy the cheapest product you are demonised for lowering society’s standards and shame on you.

The benefit cuts have been drastically aggressive, hostile filled with disdain and social enmity towards all those unable to work.

Whether unemployed, whether ill and too sick to work, you are deemed lazy and a scrounger because of a few rotten apples filmed on Benefit Street.

Bkpg9dJIAAATxPq

We have lost count of the amount of Tory politicians who over claimed on their expenses. The corruption is off scale and no one can argue this fact.

In fact the propaganda has been a splendid diabolical theme of mainstream biased, bought and paid for corporate news journalist’s photographing single mothers claiming to spend £2,000 of benefit money to holiday, or buy designer clothes is of course going to fuel anger.

That was the intention.

I don’t know anyone on benefits in Crawley, who wears designer clothes.

I know people in Crawley on benefits that never holiday, never have enough money to buy food and wear shoes that hurt their feet and have holes in.

I know of plenty of benefit claimants that are socially ashamed of their predicaments and feel excluded and banished from mainstream society.

BhaxFfgCQAAJc5O

It is an outrageous Tory government, double standard pseudo reality of inaccurate assumptions towards those in need of the social sector, especially the benefit system and those in need of it.

I also know benefit claimants who are scared to turn on the lights in their homes, and practically live in the dark, with no television on, no heating on and use candles as a source of light and heat.

They have studied from home as they can’t afford to travel on corporate public transport so they have done educational degrees at home and still they can’t find work.

These people are never highlighted in main stream media.

The Job Centre is a place of localised suppression, localised punishment and localised financial blackmail.

BiNEjj-CYAAvFj-

A place of formidable punishment. A place of localised financial slaughter and execution. A place of localised suppression and hostile agendas to attack the poor, is a successful Tory agenda.

This is never again, advertised in mainstream.

The unjust brutal regime of having your benefits slashed was hard enough but to have no empathy, no compassionate benefit agents just blindly follow a Tory psychopathic agenda, has left many impoverished, desperate and destitute within our modern day society.

A disabled individual who is suffering from disabilities with chronic pain who perhaps can’t climb Mount Everest or run a Marathon, have been placed on a tray of severe demonisation by the Tory government.

A public persecution that is regularly regurgitated by Tory Councillor’s up and down the UK as if mocking with sarcasm is the key to a healthy community and society.

BjwfDVmIgAACQO4

Out of touch Tory’s have demonised the poor with psychopathic main frames. The bedroom tax is a psychopathic virus causing perpetual debt, empty 3 bedroom properties, and persistent rent arrears.

The rug pulled out from the sensitive innately decent poor has been done with ruthless efficiency by local authorities without question and has, is, ruining the lives of millions.

The localisation of this rough but progressive repressive Tory political apparatus is being felt by this toxic form of government.

It isn’t solving any of the poverty issues for those forced to work and so depressed, life isn’t worth living.

For those forced to work on work programmes without any pay or loose their benefits, the system is unjust and unfair.

BVcpQrACcAAinqT

A rough but sophisticated repression machine is the tools of Tory unethical attitude towards the lower classes even towards the working poor or part time workers.

For those who have small children who through no fault of their own have ended up being left to raise their small family alone, life is now torturous.

The state is stealing their children.

Parents have no choice but to allow the State to socialise their child or children and forcing them as a parent to work means they cannot express their maternal instincts.

They cannot experience happiness as a parent, for they are too tired, worry too much about paying bills, putting food on the table that parenting is least enjoyed.

Parenting for the poor is a skill being slowly removed by the Tory government.

Two million poorest families hit by welfare reforms, says Oxfam

Not completely biased towards the poor as some can help themselves. This lady may have financial stress and worry, but it cost’s nothing to tidy a back garden or yard. Mine is clean and I am in the same position as this mother. Never the less, life is hard, gruelling and if she has 2 jobs then she is tired, maybe too tired and not motivated to be a mother.

‘Nearly two million of the poorest families in Britain have been made poorer by a “perfect storm” of below-inflation benefit rises and changes to the welfare system, a new report warns.

An analysis by Oxfam and the New Policy Institute found the worst-affected 200,000 families were losing £864 a year as a result of benefit cuts.

It concluded that about 1.75 million households had been hit by one or more changes to welfare payments, including fewer council tax exemptions and the “bedroom tax”.

The charity called on the Government to introduce an “absolute minimum” level of financial support regardless of where people lived, which would be “high enough to prevent people from having to walk the breadline”.’

My Home Town Crawley: Former leader of Crawley Borough Council accuses fellow councillors of behaving like toddlers

Former leader of Crawley Borough Council accuses fellow councillors of behaving like toddlers by Crawley News

220px-Crawley_Town_Hall_01

Bedroom Tax victims received spiteful remarks too from some of the Tory Councillors that Tory Cllr Claire Denman is talking about-why isn’t something done about this? It kills our local democracy.

Street Democracy writes:

The boundaries of local democracy fade in Crawley.

Persistent local Tory Councillor’s counter attack principles and methodology towards social citizenship rip’s the soul of democracy away.

What isn’t surprising is how they also use the attack principle towards their own Tory colleagues.

 

However, Councillor Claire Denamn a Tory Councillor is shocked to receive insults from her colleagues, by other local Tory Councillors despite her being a Tory Councillor herself.

 

Shocked at how they don’t just play the spiteful blame game of unequivocal opposition and bigotry towards Labour Councillors, as some local Tory Councillor’s do it to members of the public also, and its not the first time towards their own political party.

Maybe now Cllr Claire Denman will appreciate the devastating effects it has when some of her colleagues spit towards us, the public, who have no power, and are completely defenceless.

BjAu6qGCMAA05Wn

Some of the poor in Crawley feel socially and politically excluded. Including all vulnerable groups, from the disabled poor, the working poor, the unemployed, those unable to contribute towards working full time alienated and demonised.

It really does discourage local political thought, local critical thinking to exercise a healthy localised democracy, as it exacerbates social enmity providing nothing more than a political hostile environment for us to embrace.

 

It is no wonder many residents don’t get involved with local politics when local Tory Councillors are so antagonistic.

However, I doubt Cllr Denman comments will change anything and anyway, as a Deputy Leader of Crawley Borough Council, if she is insulted with her powerful position, then it says a lot for the average resident of Crawley.

76936_325017874280597_1346133833_n

Local Councillors are servants to us, the political leaders are servants to local Councillors-it isn’t the other way round.

 

Also if Cllr Denman felt so strongly about certain attitudes, then she would or should, have addressed this matter at the time, but never did.

In fact she is as guilty for sitting back and let her colleagues rip into members of the public with sarcasm and mockery.

This occurred over the Bedroom Tax and Social Housing Tenants concerns over evictions.

The whole process of Benefit Cuts is extremely worrying for many families suffering from financial scarcity and worries of perpetual debt plus rent arrears.

We were met with no empathy, and thrown sterile statistical data back at us, and the blame card was always issued – ‘it’s Labour’s fault’ scenario.

We experienced a rough but sophisticated localised repressive political apparatus that created a collective despair for all of us.

crawley town hall

The Tory-Labour bitch back and throwing is a pointless waste of energy during meetings-unnecessary and time wasting-especially when it is aimed at the public. Why is it allowed even?

Why not publicly complain and let us clean up our local social democracy and our local democratic political infrastructure so we the people are not insulted for daring to attend meetings and speak our minds and exercise critical thought?

As a member of the public and resident of Crawley, when ever we tried to practice democracy, we too received insults from some of the local Tory Councillor’s.

When attending Crawley Town Hall public meetings we are allowed to have 30 minutes to ask questions. We are dictated too however in a stern voice, that our questions may not be answered or if they are we may not be allowed to respond.

It isn’t much of a democracy of encouraging local political innovation to me.

Tory Councillors need to stop regurgitating what their leaders spout and listen to people and get back in touch with poverty issues in Crawley.

 

It is intimidating, cold and stern as if they don’t want you to waste their time asking stupid questions.

It is as if they don’t want you to disturb the agenda so they can have an easy evening and be done with the public.

We are then silenced for the rest of the public meeting while listening to the Councillors of all parties in their representative democracy.

It is here when we the public are not allowed to speak, or we get thrown out, or the police are called or these Councillors just get up and walk out as they have done before over the public’s very legitimate outrage of the Bedroom Tax.

representativedemocracy

Our Tory Govt is out of touch so repeating out what they say isn’t going to relate to the local.

So our democracy is really 30 minutes and the Mayor has often closed this time lime before, that really upset the public.

When we question the reduce time we are threatened, jeered at by some Tory Councillor’s all smirking and just rude.

However during the meeting our questions would be sarcastically brought up by some Tory Councillor’s so rude and obnoxious, that they hurt and cause offence to us.

HEARME

I have seen people walk out because of Tory Councillors mocking them during the meetings-spewing out sarcasm and upsetting locals who won’t ever return and killing our local democracy because of it.

So this statement from the ex-Deputy Leader of Crawley Council by her own Tory party isn’t of any surprise and yes clearly they have lost touch.

Some Tory Councillors would spit back towards the public knowing how desperate some were to get answers and mock them in gesture.

Mocking is the word, as their attitude is ‘nothing we can do’ with a smirk on their face.

Many residents would get up mortified and upset by the slandering insults during the meeting and it kills democracy.

The last public meeting I attended, there were 5 of us, including me, instead of 90 and one of them was a small boy with his father.

It is scary of how out of touch some Councillor’s are. Snobbery fills the public chamber when some of them walk in. Some shouldn’t be Councillor’s. Whether this picture is a true account as Cllr Marshall-Ascough claims it isn’t when we spoke-it is in my view symbolic of how some of the Tory Councillor’s view poverty in Crawley.

It is the rudeness, the sarcasm and the mocking that is allowed at the Town Hall and when you complain you are ignored.

I sent an email regarding the abysmal exercise of democracy at Crawley Town Hall, Crawley Borough Council and about the unprofessional conduct of some of Tory Councillor’s behaviour.

I emailed twice and got no reply back, nothing and was ignored.

It is further interesting that Cllr Denman has accused the Tory Councillor’s of ‘losing their humanity and acting like toddlers’, loosing humanity towards other people and loosing touch with reality’ is precisely how we feel too.

However, her words are printed, and no doubt will be commented on. Our words of similar anger are ignored.

It is a sham of a democracy in Crawley sometimes when issues of hardship are mentioned and then ridiculed especially with the Tory leadership’s antagonistic demonisation methodology towards the poor is outrageous.

No democracy, no chance with Tory Henry Smith MP. Voted for Bedroom Tax, Benefit Cuts-Student fee increases, ATOS and sympathises with local Fracking-enough said. He’ll pray for the poor at St.Paul’s church in Crawley, but votes to impoverish them further-hypocritical is what I say.

Some of the members of the Tory’ Councillors of Crawley have lost touch with reality for sure, we could have told Claire Denman this when we as a community regularly attending Crawley meetings.

All we got was a regurgitation of the ‘Punishing State’ their Tory leaders have created and tough luck attitude towards us.

I know of individuals who have had private meetings with Crawley Borough Council to be driven to tears and met with nothing but harsh dialogue.

It is interesting how her son is important, how her home life is important and how she is angry at her fellow Tory Councillors for not showing her the respect she felt she deserved.

How about the Broadfield amputee who is in chronic pain, cannot breath and needs his own spare bedroom to sleep apart from his wife, is targeted as a ‘scrounger’ and ‘lazy’ as he was financially slaughtered, ridiculed by ATOS and Crawley Homes, demanded he pay the Bedroom Tax?

He received the same treatment as everyone else and was even lied to by Henry Smith MP who said he wouldn’t have to pay it.

BiZBiWUIIAA7Si3

No empathy, death-dealing politics and victims in Crawley have no voice, nothing has changed and policies have got worse. People in Crawley are missing meals to compensate for the benefit cuts and we need support not demonisation.

 

This innately decent Social Housing Tenant with severe disabilities has to pay Bedroom Tax and stil does. He’ll never work again and is desperately poor selling his possessions to pay back debt of his permanent rent arrears.

STEPPED DOWN:  Claire Denman has resigned from Crawley Borough Council

A FORMER acting leader of Crawley Borough Council who resigned as a councillor last week has criticised fellow councillors for losing their “humanity” and acting like “toddlers”.

Claire Denman stood down last Wednesday after ten years as a councillor.

The ward member for Pound Hill South and Worth was also cabinet member for customer and corporate services and left a year before her term was due to expire.

Last year she told the Crawley News she would consider her position after announcing she was moving out of Crawley to Pulborough. Mrs Denman has now said the move, as well as personal factors, led to her taking the decision now.

“One of the challenges is that the political process takes over everything and some councillors seem to lose a sense of humanity towards other people.

“They become so wrapped up in the party politics and lose touch with reality.

“A case that always jumps to mind is when a relative had a brain tumour and a councillor had a go at me for missing a meeting to be with them. I couldn’t believe it.

UK hunger crisis laid bare in open letter to PM from professional couple forced to resort to food banks

UK hunger crisis laid bare in open letter to PM from professional couple forced to resort to food banks 

BlRm8vKIUAARRXo

People in Crawley, West Sussex are going hungry, missing meals regularly to pay the bedroom tax and other death dealing benefit cuts by the Tories.

Street Democracy writes:

Here in Crawley, W.Sussex I hear and meet local residents who regularly miss meals because of being forced to pay the bedroom tax or have been hit hard by the benefit cuts.

I meet people who tell me democracy for them doesn’t exist for they feel silenced and excluded.

Our local MP, Henry Smith (Tory), doesn’t listen to them or me for that matter, and gives back automated pre-written emails or responses regurgitated from the Tory henchmen Conservative Leaders.

5300790

Henry Smith MP-Prayed at Northgate Church for the poor but ignores their pleas, supports bedroom tax, benefit cuts and ATOS all death dealing Tory policies-hypocrite!

There is no empathy in this sterile economic torture towards the poor.

The Tory punishing state is expanding as our stomachs rumble for food.

We have some Tory Councillor’s who feel we the poor live lavishly on food take away’s, daily and we don’t need a food bank.

BjrzhxfCQAAHQ8K

This Tory Councillor is also rude to members of the public who don’t support Tory policy. Mockery is allowed at Town Hall meetings towards the public gallery when the public are not permitted to speak to defend themselves. Outcome-innately decent people walk out.

 

This particular Tory Councillor is wrong.

He is using in accurate and by out of touch information to make such a crazy statement.

This Tory Councillor cannot hear, or relate to the numbers of Crawley residents who bear the weight of this Tory ‘war against the poor’ and even Iain Duncan Smith stated it was a war.

BlSvADbIAAAOWxa

So it is a war then! A war against the lower classes and financially weaponising benefits and to demonise claimants has been a Tory success.

Crawley, Tory Councillor refuse’s to open their eyes to their political party’s destruction policy aimed at benefit claimants.

It has been a spiteful punishing agenda, especially using the blame game for economic failures being aimed at benefit claimants and calling it a ‘benefit culture’ like it was always easy to survive on.

There are hungry people in Crawley, I know this for a fact. Desperately trying to find work that pays their rent, mortgage and the corporate cost of living is now very difficult without welfare top ups.

Crawley Borough Council and the local Crawley Job Centre amplify this misery, by following the Tory psychopathic main frame with ruthless efficiency.

220px-Crawley_Town_Hall_01

Bedroom tax victims were regularly mocked by Tory Councillor’s and many walked out feeling worse than what they did walking in. This is Crawley Borough Council where workers are paid not to be political-paid no to think more like.

By orders of wealthy ruling families-death dealing policies-this Tory psychopathic agenda is being followed with ruthless efficiency.

UK hunger crisis laid bare in open letter to PM from professional couple forced to resort to food banks 

As a report reveals one million food parcels have been handed out including 330,000 to hungry children, a professional working couple tell how they had to rely on food banks to feed their baby.

Hard working: Hannah, baby Hunter and Dean Chadwick

 

NHS PA Hannah Chadwick, 31, and her engineer husband Dean, 27, ran out of money to feed themselves and their 16-month-old son Hunter after their car needed £700 of repairs.

In an open letter to David Cameron, the couple, from Wrexham in North Wales, reveal how they had to use a food bank to survive:

Dear Mr Cameron

We are a hard-working family and never buy anything on credit. We are proud of being able to provide for ourselves and didn’t want to beg off someone else. So going to the food bank was our only option. We were a bit embarrassed but in August we turned up at our local centre.

There was a real mix of people there. We expected to see homeless people or those fighting addiction. But there were also professional workers, older people and families.

They gave us three days of food but it lasted a week. It tided us over to payday. Without it we’d have gone hungry. We don’t think the answer is more food banks. Cheaper childcare would have helped us. We are a wealthy country and it is shocking that so many don’t have enough.

We want the Government to come up with ways that people can help themselves. And if you are struggling our message to you is, ‘Don’t be too proud to ask for help’. We wanted to give back so we donate food ourselves.

Hannah and Dean Chadwick
