‘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.’

‘Ministers could be given stronger powers to block scrutiny of public bodies under government transparency law, Downing Street has said.

Speaking ahead of the expected release of documents detailing Prince Charles’s correspondence with ministers, Number 10 argued that there was a “strong case” for beefing up the ministerial veto on freedom of information requests.

“Our view remains – as the government has argued in the lengthy legal proceedings [regarding the Prince’s correspondence] – that there is a strong case for there being the ability to exercise a ministerial veto,” he told a briefing of journalists.’

Our Tory government have an intolerable thirst to inflict legalised oppressions with lips of blue, spouting verbal destruction towards human rights, basic civil liberties and our welfare state.

 

Tory political bullies set a furious legalised corrupt expedition at our expense to the point it is so obvious they having to reset laws to become invisible to the public eye.

 

Democracy expresses an ‘open government’ representing its legitimacy and the Tories want a shut tight, closed one.

 

It is painfully obvious corruption is saturated within Tory government with a fanatical commitment to its ceaseless expansion that it needs to legalise hiding behind armed guard doors.

 

We are saturated by antagonising and oppressive policies and forced to walk a darken loathsome pathyway filled with sour principles and unclean wisdom by virtue of the Tory Party.

‘Death dealing policies’ that value human life only as commodities, with no intrinsic value, no ‘we understand your pain and dilemma’ language as Tory democracy avenues close to dissent, the critiques, those with legitimate rage.
The Tories ears are ‘open wide shut’, in some hideous horror show embracing our political theatre with menacing jaws of hostility we have come to recognise.
We fear IDS because he is soulless, serves the oligarchs and has no compassion, perfect to slash rip and disintegrate the Welfare State.

‘David Cameron has reappointed Iain Duncan Smith as Work and Pensions Secretary, meaning he will be in charge of making the huge benefit cuts the Conservatives pledged in their manifesto.

The man who presided over the ‘bedroom tax’ and the £26,000 benefits cap now has to find a further £12 billion in welfare savings.

The pledge – which will hit the working age poor – was one of the most controversial parts of the Conservative manifesto.

But during the campaign they only said where £2 billion of these savings would come from. With a further £10 billion to find, here are seven reasons why people should be worried about the ruthless figure of Mr Duncan Smith returning to the Department for Work and Pensions.’

‘Michael Gove is to be returned to a major government department as justice secretary in the wake of the Conservative general election victory.

In a second round of senior appointments since the election, the prime minister is reshuffling Gove, who has been his chief whip in charge of party discipline since July last year, to the Ministry of Justice, taking charge of prisons, sentencing and criminal justice.

Gove was removed as education secretary last year to head the whips’ office, reportedly at the behest of the party’s general election strategist Lynton Crosby, who feared that the former journalist’s “toxic image” could be a vote loser. At the time Gove’s wife, the journalist Sarah Vine, made her feelings clear about the cabinet minister’s move out of the limelight by tweeting a link to a Daily Mail article that the newspaper headlined “A shabby day’s work which Cameron will live to regret”.’

This Kind of Justice, eh Mr Gove?: July 2014 – Home Office ‘child abuse cover-up’: Michael Gove rules out public inquiry into claims of paedophile politicians at Westminster

‘The Education Secretary has insisted that there should not be a public inquiry into a possible cover-up of paedophile politicians in Westminster, after it emerged that more than 100 Home Office files related to historic allegations of child abuse have gone “missing”.

Lord Tebbit, who served in the Cabinet under Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s, said today that there “may well have been” a political cover-up in order to “protect the establishment” of the time.

The files, which related to a 20-year period between 1979 and 1999, were flagged up as part of an internal Home Office review into a dossier, prepared by Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens, alleging paedophile activity at Westminster in the 1980s.’

‘Schools are to fine parents £60 if pupils are repeatedly late for registration.

The penalty will double if it is not paid within 21 days, and parents who refuse to pay could be prosecuted and even jailed.

One council is deploying so-called late-gate patrols to ask tardy parents why their children are arriving late.

But parents’ groups criticised the move yesterday, and said the fines would ultimately punish the children, not their parents.’

Westminster should be under house arrest, each MP under house arrest. Where is the moral out cry?

‘Margaret Thatcher secured a knighthood for a top Tory despite being warned of claims that he had held sex parties with under-age boys.

Mrs Thatcher’s former police bodyguard says he passed on allegations about Peter Morrison to the Tory prime minister in 1986.

Former deputy party chairman Morrison is now widely suspected of being a child-sex pervert.

Just four years after the warning, Mrs Thatcher personally recommended Morrison for a knighthood.’

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

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.”

MPs claim more than £5m in ‘housing benefit’ expenses

MPs claim more than £5m in ‘housing benefit’ expenses by Inside Housing

254 MPs are claiming more in expenses to pay their rent than the maximum someone in Westminster can claim in housing benefit, research by Generation Rent shows.

563729_671029656270284_148532872_n

In total, taxpayers paid more than £5 million in 2013 to rent second homes for 335 MPs with constituencies outside London. Half of them claimed more than £1,675 a month in rent, and the biggest rent claim was for £2,467 a month. Monthly rent for the typical London household is £1,300. The highest rent claim, for £2,467 per month, was by North Antrim MP Ian Paisley.

A spokesperson from Generation Rent said: ‘Just living in a rented house doesn’t make an MP an expert on private renting. Because it’s not their money they have no idea what it’s really like to see half your income eaten up by rent, or scrimp together the fees involved in moving home. And because the allowance is so generous, they can afford the type of accommodation most private renters can only dream about.

‘We don’t object to the second home allowance, but if MPs realised how privileged they are compared to other private renters, they might finally take some action to improve a housing system that is failing millions.’

Independent comments:

They would all fit into the many spare rooms within Buckingham Palace. A short walk from the commons. Secure with excellent facilities. Already funded by the taxpayer so effectively doubling the saving. An obvious option really in these austere times when benefit claimants who are not MPs or members of the Aristocracy have to pay the bedroom tax. As well as find the costs of these poor MPs……..

Is Shapps still fuming at being blocked from getting his own little snout into this trough, or did he find a way around his own admission that his constituency home was such a short commute to the commons?

Whilst the more deserving MPs, as opposed to the feckless something for nothing brigade like those in the Home Counties, need a London base if for no other reason than to follow their right to a family life, it is time that the basic allowance allowed for this so they at least could understand the value of the costs they need to meet, like the rest of us. That way they may rethink how they let out their ex-Council Homes for Market Rents to cash in on the Benefits Cash Cow they created.

The likes of Shapps, leading the division of society into deserving and undeserving have opened a Pandora’s Box that will be the ruin of us all.

Perhaps if the grinning money grabber were to apologise and commit to uniting communities instead there may be a gradual restoration of trust. Otherwise, the outcome is frightening.
