Disgusting treatment of people who have been ostracised and left hung out to dry for countless years with threats of their livelihoods constantly from all angles.


I still remember how Katie Hopkins, Channel 4/5, Jeremy Kyle, and others made a solid living by publicly smearing claimants at every opportunity.

In an era when forms of hatred and discrimination such as racism and homophobia are rightly considered to be appalling, this still carried on largely unopposed, and a large proportion of the population even seemed to support it.

Remember Cameron's 2015 election cry? 6 billion in welfare cuts he promised, and the voting public said 'bring it on'.

He's literally describing his own work day.

After what happened to Hopkins, you'd think these fuckwits would know it's very expensive to libel Jack Monroe. :lol:

My local council has just taken a leaf out of the governments and said to a group of residents who asked to be able to pay monthly for their garden waste collection instead of annually. What did they say? Our computer systems won't allow us to take monthly payments :fp:

Don't get me started. I used to have an account with Very and they used to take or want to take payments every 4 weeks whilst the average person gets paid monthly. This meant at least one month you ended up paying twice.

After many complaints of trying to get them to change I told them outright they were only getting monthly payments. In the end they put my account on hold and charged me monthly to clear it. :fp:

I honestly think a lot of people's financial issues would be better managed if we all got paid weekly rather than monthly. How many of us have that last week of the month where money is tight? Budgeting for lengthy periods is a pain in the ass.

I only say this because during the years I spent as a supply teacher I got paid weekly and when I had regular work In was never skint because I could always rely on a fresh influx of cash the following Friday.

Tory MPs voted to allow the government to do it.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/h ... 4.html?amp

Boris Johnson said that he was ready for a fight with "leftie lawyers" seeking to challenge plans to offshore the processing asylum applications to Rwanda.

He revealed that the first 50 "illegal entrants into this country" have already been served notice that they will be sent to the African nation within a fortnight.

He told The Daily Mail: "There's going to be a lot of legal opposition from the types of firms that for a long time have been taking taxpayers' money to mount these sorts of cases, and to thwart the will of the people, the will of Parliament. We're ready for that.

"We will dig in for the fight and you know, we will make it work. We've got a huge flowchart of things we have to do to deal with it, with the leftie lawyers."

Asked if he might respond with a review of the European Convention on Human Rights, Mr Johnson he said: "We'll look at everything. Nothing is off the table."



"Leftie" lawyers. Everything has to be part of the ridiculous culture war.

Not really, he's just trying reinforcing that any opposition to the government puts you on the left in their binary culture war, and the left is full of "loonies".

Funnily enough after my post I googled yougov and found that poll too.

Brexit did not give them a mandate to come up with whatever racist policy they wanted :fp:

It's probably a pure coincidence that 35% is also roughly the percentage of the country that voted for Brexit.
