Police warn big budget cuts will lead to ‘paramilitary’ force

new Monday 18th May 2015 at 10:45 By David Icke

‘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’

new Monday 18th May 2015 at 10:21 By David Icke

‘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’.’

Street Democracy writes:

With a crushing force of militarised policing, peaceful innately decent people joining together to protest against sour governmental principles, have to be prepared for instantaneous dark durance of violent clashes with police and spontaneous arrests.

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.

The weaponisation of the State, the criminalisation of the poor, the protester, anyone critical of government is legalised tyranny and we must not stand the stance of toleration.

New Tory disabilities minister opposed protecting benefits for disabled children and cancer patients

 

Street Democracy writes: 

 

Our government is a ferocious machine shelling out a hideous vigour of rage towards those unable to support themselves financially.

A government intent on vollying sour principles promoting ‘evil in ink’ with a horrendous array of fierce Tory hosting. 

These are love abandoned soul’s, MP’s who will socially destroy those unable to contribute towards a full working week or pay their taxes.

Our disabled communities across our country will be marginalised and expelled from mainstream society with severe brutish expeditions socially discrediting them as ‘scroungers’. 

Not all disabled people can run marathons and climb mountains! Many find it hard just to survive each day with pain and misery for comfort.

With soulless suits of blue we’ll witness a dreadful and painful interval upon our society degrading those unable to work, expelling further disabled people by a legalised power centre of prejudice.

The Tories wish to gain a pay rise of £7,000 but cut disabled people’s benefits to below subsistence levels at the same time proves they are morally bankrupt, and incapable of empathy.

Justin Tomlinson is to bring on the Tory toxic onslaught creating more disabilities as lack of medical treatments, equipment, even counselling, will lead to a cruel world mind set, and not ideal for any recovery.

 

It is clear his principles are a fallen from grace faded splendour and like thieves huddled in the night will steal freedom away and imprison innately decent people across the UK without conscience. 

 

Basically placing disabled people under house arrest, a barrless prison.

New Tory disabilities minister opposed protecting benefits for disabled children and cancer patients

Wednesday 13th May 2015 at 09:56 By David Icke

‘The Tories’ new disabilities minister voted against protecting extra benefits for disabled children and cancer patients.

Justin Tomlinson opposed giving the safeguards in the controversial Welfare Reform Bill – despite pleas from the House of Lords.

Today David Cameron named the 38-year-old North Swindon MP as disabilities minister in the Department for Work and Pensions as part of his Cabinet shake-up.

He’ll be tasked with helping Iain Duncan Smith cut £12billion from the welfare bill.’

Anti-Tory protesters are met with police violence

Street Democracy writes:

We’re being ‘forcibly severed’ from main stream opinion, all political avenues and society to stand in splendid isolation.

We watch a ‘ferocious silencing’ of voice and reason to satisfy ruling elites whose fanatic commitment towards making vindictive policies of oppression to disempower us.

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.

Don’t give in: an angry population is hard to govern; a depressed population is easy

The political cursed ambition is easy when mainstream media manipulate and propagandise to our atomised society compiling of individuals and their tv sets! Corporate heads sit together and orchestrate their ‘monetary values, death-dealing policies’ above the pyramid of control and organise our landscape for us.
Our political timetable was fixed from the corporate ‘Rothschild’ think tanks, directing their bullying and furious expedition as a game of chess, to weaken the opposition that they control anyway and leave only one looking strong party available, the Tories.
Game, set and match!
These money worshipping, money hoarders, diseased wealth collectors own government by corporate private interests and politicians serve only the corporate empiriam and not us the people.
We are the sacrifice societies, loosing our planet to giant corporate plantation systems across her sacred lands, and loosing our economic livelihoods to the same ruling masters.
We may have a militarised society, Big Brother and deep individual surveillance, but we’re not the ‘micro chip’ people yet. We still can control our minds.

‘Don’t let the bastards get you down – choose action over despondency when coming to terms with the general election result.’

‘Hours after the Conservatives were re-elected, the government looked at cutting access to work schemes for the disabled. You’d think they’d at least have the decency to bring some flowers before shafting the vulnerable, but no. Not these guys. Not today. Today is not yesterday. Today, David Cameron does not just have the political will to slash welfare and widen the wealth gap: he has a mandate.

I have spent much of the past 48 hours lying in bed staring at the ceiling, reading despairing, four-letter posts on social media and trying to work out how on earth this happened, as if anyone with half a brain doesn’t know. The political elites closed ranks and capitulated to a politics of fear, first in Scotland, and then across the nation.

The muddled, equivocating voice of what was once the party of the left could not compete with the merciless message of austerity telling us we got what’s coming to us. We know what that is. More cuts to public services. More inequality. More lies. More of the old Cameron doctrine with no pratting about pretending we’re all in it together. The same great taste, now with zero liberals.’

Benefit Reform “Shambles” Pushing Disabled People To Suicide, Says Whistleblower

Benefit Reform “Shambles” Pushing Disabled People To Suicide, Says Whistleblower

Sick and disabled claimants are experiencing severe distress and some are even close to suicide due to botched disability benefit reform, an insider has revealed.

Personal Independence Payments (PIP) are replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for Britain’s sick and disabled, but the assessment process which should take no longer than 26 weeks is sometimes taking twice as long.

Sign The Petition For An Inquiry Into The Benefit Sanctions That Killed David Clapson

by johnny void

MAIN--David-ClapsonThe family of David Clapson – the former soldier who recently died after his benefits were stopped as punishment for missing a meeting at the Jobcentre – have launched a petitioncalling for an inquiry into benefit sanctions.

In his sister’s own words:

“My brother, David Clapson, a diabetic ex-soldier, died starving and destitute because he was penalised by the Job Centre for missing a meeting.

“David had his £71.70 weekly allowance stopped meaning that he couldn’t afford food or electricity. He was penniless, starving and alone. His electricity card was out of credit meaning the fridge where he should have kept his diabetes insulin chilled was not working. Three weeks after his benefits were stopped he died from diabetic ­ketoacidosis – caused by not taking his insulin. 

“David wasn’t a “scrounger”. He had worked for 29 years; 5 years in the Army – including two years in Northern Ireland in the 1970s, during the height of the troubles – 16 years with British Telecom, eight years with various other companies, and in recent years was a carer for our sick mother. When mum went into a home, David turned to the state for help, receiving benefits while he looked for work and taking unpaid work placements.

“When he died he had just £3.44 to his name, six tea bags, a tin of soup and an out-of-date can of sardines. A coroner also found he had no food in his stomach.

“People turn to the state when they are in need – that is what the system is for – a safety net for hard working people like my brother when they need a bit of support. That £71.70 a week was his lifeline. To withhold it from him for missing one meeting is cruel. And the heartbreaking thing is that he was really trying. CVs for job applications were found near David’s body. He had been on work placements, passed his fork lift truck certificate and had been on a computer training course.”

RIP David Clapson, the latest tragic victim of callous welfare reforms.RIP David Clapson, the latest tragic victim of callous welfare reforms.

When Funghi, the unemployed alcoholic  featured in the recent Benefits Street television series, disclosed that he had been abused as a child, most of those condemning him on twitter did not even blink.  Such is the state-whipped up contempt amongst some towards people on benefits, that not even the revelation of a tragic childhood was enough to stop the bullying mob.

Yet one of the reasons child abuse is such an abhorrent crime is that the scars often last a lifetime.  Everybody knows this.  Addiction, depression, low self-esteem, isolation, these are just some of the ways that a life can be blighted by mistreatment as a child.  Often people like this find it hard to just get a job, and often not through want of trying.  The sad truth is that employers are not rushing out to hire people addicted to drink or drugs, or those with a serious mental condition, or even people who might simply be judged to have a mild personality disorder.  In an economy based on high unemployment, and no real political will to change that, some people will be left behind.  There are over two million people currently looking for a job.

Captitalism chews people up and spits them out.  Everybody knows this as well.  Whether the stress of a shit job or no job, poverty, lack of adequate housing and fractured communities, the pressures faced by those at the bottom are immense.  Yet the poor are now expected to be super-heroes.  Lone parents are not only expected to juggle looking after young children with endless work-related activity imposed by Jobcentres, but also to feed them healthy food, home-cooked on the fucking Aga using only natural ingredients.  It doesn’t matter that the pittance those parents have to survive on barely pays for value chicken nuggets and oven chips.  They should make do and mend, live on ten pounds a week, darn socks by the fire and be grateful that their children are just malnourished, not starving.

Disabled people and those with health conditions are now having those conditions and disabilities magically disappeared by endless health assessments which are designed to stop their benefits.  Such is the triumph of neo-liberalism, the rhetoric goes, that there is a job for anyone now if they just try hard enough.  If you can tweet you can work as one Tory MP claimed.  The stark fact that employers are guilty of grotesque discrimination towards disabled workers is swept under the carpet at best, or at worst disabled people themselves are blamed for this prejudice.

Many tyrants claim to be helping the people whose live are demolished by their acts of barbarism.  Whether European invaders ‘civilising’ Africa by forcing the people into chains, or Tony Blair carpet-bombing Baghdad to save it, death and destruction have often been inflicted by messianic monsters who believe they are killing people for their own good.

The latest government workfare scheme is called Help To Work.  It is nothing of the sort of course, when this type of workfare was tried in a pilot scheme it had no impact on whether people found a job.  But that hasn’t stopped gushing press releases from the DWP lying about all the wonderful new support the scheme offers.  In truth this so-called support is either forced labour or starvation and this Government couldn’t particularly give a fuck which.

Under the guise of this ‘help’, Iain Duncan Smith has re-designed the already scant support of the social security system to be a torture machine.  Slip up, just for a second, and you will be dragged down, to poverty, homelessness and destitution.  It doesn’t even matter if it’s not your fault.  People newly diagnosed with cancer now spend as much time fighting the DWP so they can have enough money to eat, as they do fighting their illness.  Victims of domestic abuse face being socially cleansed from the area they may have grown up in, instead of being provided safe, and secure housing.  Kids who’ve been in care are sanctioned, cut off benefits completely, and left beg, rob, or sell their bodies to survive.

Today the Daily Mirror features that harrowing case of former soldier David Clapson on their front page.  This man, a 59 year old diabetic, was left penniless and without even electricity to keep his insulin chilled in the fridge.  A coroner found he had no food in his stomach.  His crime was to miss a meeting at the Jobcentre.  His punishment was death by benefit sanction.  Sanctions which ‘help’ people and according to one senior DWP official are even welcomed by those they are inflicted on.

Art attack on Coalition policies that drive people to their deaths

Art attack on Coalition policies that drive people to their deaths – @MidWalesMike

A UK artist has created an art installation as a memorial to the suicide victims of welfare reform.

Melanie Cutler contacted Vox Political regarding her piece – ‘Stewardship’ – a few weeks ago, asking, “Do you think I’ll be arrested?”

The response was that it should be unlikely if she informed the media. The artworks have been displayed at the Northampton Degree Show and are currently at the Free Range Exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery building in Brick Lane, London, which ends tomorrow (June 30).

Entry is free and the installation will be located in F Block, B5.

“I have become an artist later on in life,” Melanie told Vox Political. “I was a carer for my son and, a few decades later, my father. I have worked most of my life too, raising three children.

“Only recently, while studying fine art at University I found my health deteriorating. I have a cocktail of conditions – Type 1 diabetes (diagnosed last year), Coeliac disease, asthma, rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis (currently being investigated), osteoarthritis, psoriasis and a brain tumour (thankfully benign and inactive). I have also lived with depression for almost all my adult life.

“I wanted my work to articulate how I feel about certain issues. In March this year I pitched up in Thurrock, a marginal seat which will be hotly fought-over in the run-up to the next general election. I sat in front of a blank canvas and asked the people of the town to tell me how they felt about welfare reform, the press and the 2015 General Election. I took a team of people to film and photograph the event and to explain to people what the work was about.

'People of Thurrock' in the making. Artist Melanie Cutler sits, silenced, while residents of Thurrock write their opinions of 'welfare reform' on the canvas.

“Buoyed on by the reaction to ‘People of Thurrock’, I went on to something else I felt was an important issue; I put welfare reform under the microscope and conducted research around this issue. I was struck by the amount of people who, through no fault of their own, seek to end their own lives as they feel they have no other option. My own family has been touched by suicide and one of my own children is on ESA and awaiting an interview with ATOS.”

'Stewardship': Each plaque features the name of a 'welfare reform' victim and a description of how they died.

'Stewardship': This memorial is to Paul Reekie, the Scottish poet and writer who took his own life in 2010. Letters left on his table stated that his Housing Benefit and Incapacity Benefit had been stopped. The poet's death led to the creation of the Black Triangle Anti-Defamation Campaign in Defence of Disability Rights.
