Is The UK Political System Just A Group Of Criminal Gangs?


Is the UK Political system just a group of criminal gangs that use the Parliamentary Expenses system as a way to Launder Millions of pounds of the TAX payers money into their own pockets, then they turn Communities on each other by making out that the unemployed people that in part have lost their jobs due to Government cuts in public spending as lazy benefits scroungers, & peddle false unemployment statistics, as well as push over worked Job Centre staff into suspending the payments of as many Job-seekers as possible to justify their claims that unemployed people are lazy work shy scroungers.

These Criminals then don’t stop there they then introduce benefits changes that could see the vulnerable people who the benefits system is supposed to help Bankrupt & homeless. While they are still allowed to screw this country over for every penny that they can get their thieving hands on.

Every single one of the thieving & lying criminals that the public have voted into a position where they are supposed to help and protect the people of this country should be all put under investigation for fraud, theft of public money as well as money laundering, then sacked & banned from Politics for life then locked up for a very long time.

Then and only then can the UK Political system be changed to stop the un-regulated expenses for MP’s and cut their pay down to a average wage instead of being £65,738.00+ per year to something in keeping with the rest of the UK say something like £12,000.00 per year with no expenses and having to commute from their Constituency home to London.

The UK, A Country Run By The Rich & Privileged For The Rich & Privileged


After reading this Blog post I thought I’d write one to air my views.

The Conservative Environment Minister Richard Ponsonby in August proved how all MP’s & politicians are up their own behinds by saying that the poor reconsider their buying habits and resist the temptation to spend more money on the latest electronic gadgets, clothes and food that they will not eat” in efforts to recapture the spirit of “make, do and mend”.

This comment just proves how out of touch with the none privileged population of the Country, as the poor of this Country can barely afford the food and clothes that they need without buying extra food and clothes that they don’t need. Also it was the privileged Conservative Government of the 80’s that encouraged people to buy the latest electrical gadgets by allowing manufacturers to make electrical goods that only last two years before they need replacing.

But then you can expect comments like this from Conservative MP’s that were educated at Eaton where they learn to only care about themselves. These rich snotty nosed people then only care that they are getting a huge wage from the Taxpayer to make themselves richer while they then claim expenses of the Taxpayer to then fund their extravagant lifestyle. Maybe if these people got a minimum wage and no expenses and made to live of that and their family millions they would learn that most people don’t live the extravagant lifestyle that they have been born into, when people like this have millions in the bank, why should the Taxpayer then have to pay them a huge wage (as of April 1 2013 the basic annual salary of an MP is £66,396.00 + expenses, which works out at £43, 157,400.00 + expenses) that the Taxpayer pays these already rich & privileged people to run the country on our behalf.

These people then raise Taxes, make up new Taxes & cut public spending so they then can make more money for themselves, and then have the cheek to brand the poor part of the population as scroungers for having to claim Benefits to be able to live due to the cost of living then increasing to favour the rich & the rich and privileged.

It’s about time that the average person on the street stood up to these rich and privileged people, but as they have the power to make new legislation to silence us it’s never going to happen. This Country is slowly turning from a Democratic Country to a Dictatorship.

Should Taxpayer Funded Expenses Be Scrapped?


After reading this BBC News Article about former Cabinet Minister Liam Fox successfully claiming 3p on fuel expenses for a 0.06 mile trip from a Concrete firm he had visited to a Constituency Surgery in Yatton within his North Sumerset base.

Now is it about time that MP’s all took a pay cut, then use the excess money from their pay cut to fund their expenses instead of getting a huge pay check from the Taxpayer, then claiming stupid expenses off the Taxpayer, also fuel expenses should be capped at a mile minimum or whatever the going rate of fuel expenses are for regular companies that pay fuel expenses.

Also why should MP’s be allowed to have a second home, they should be made to live in their Constituency then commute into London like everyone else that has a job outside of where they live.

How the hell the Prime Minister has got the cheek to brand people who are claiming benefits (especially the ones that have ended up needing to claim them through no fault of their own) scroungers when MP’s are the biggest scroungers of them all they do very little work for a huge pay packet that the Taxpayer funds, then claim expenses for their lifestyle choice, travel expenses for journeys so small most normal people would walk the distance & also have the cheek then to claim for their Constituency home while they spend most of their time living in London, or 5* Hotels during the Conference season.

No wonder the UK is going down the toilet when all these Privileged Rich people are living off Taxpayers money , while their secret family millions are sitting in the Bank making them even richer.

MP’s get given the title The Right Honourable [Insert Name] when half of them don’t know what being Right & Honourable is if it came up and bit them on their behind.

I ask you:

A) Is it Right & Honourable to have a huge pay packet & then have the cheek to claim expenses to fund their lifestyle when they have got money stashed away in the Bank what they keep a secret?

B) Is it Right & Honourable to make Public Sector Cuts that then make people redundant, then when Private Sector Businesses do the same thing meaning that there are even more people unemployed that it’s then hard to find a job. So that they then get branded Lazy Scroungers that are being funded to live an extravagant Benefits funded lifestyle?

Taking a more in-depth look at point B:

Adding up for all the Benefits for the average unemployed person or couple Job Seekers Allowance is only £225.10 a fortnight out of that you have to pay for Gas, Electricity, Water along with anything that is required, Food Shopping, Clothes Shopping, there then is a fortnightly none refundable travel cost to the Job Centre to sign.  There is then Housing Benefit (if you live in Council or Private rented accommodation) that varies depending on the full rental price of the property with a varying cut depending if you have 1 or 2 spare bedrooms (The Bedroom Tax) then Council Tax Benefit. If you own your own property you then lose the Housing Benefit.  So adding up the cost of living and deducting it from Benefit income there isn’t really enough to live this so-called life of luxury that the MP’s seem to think that people on Benefits live.

If these MP’s worked for minimum wage without expenses maybe they’d be better able to judge what it’s like for the average working person lives, also they should try living for up to three   years on just Job Seekers Allowance & Council Tax Benefit (as they’re Council Tax is more than likely Taxpayer funded) they would be able to see that this life of luxury that they claim people on benefits live is just a figment of their imagination, and that living on Benefits isn’t a lifestyle choice for many but just a way of life that they would like to be able to get out of if they were given a real chance.

Romanian Beggars Who Returned To Romania by tickets Funded By The Taxpayer Have ALREADY Returned To The UK


A group of more than 20 Romania baggers were rounded up in a raid by immigration officers at their encampment on Park Lane in London back in July have since returned to the country just weeks after being given tickets for flights & coaches back to Romania by the UK Border Agency and a taxpayer funded homeless charity.

This means that the taxpayer has basically funded a Summer Holiday back home to Romania for this group of Beggars.  But under EU Law the Romanians have a right to be here for 90 days after this time they need to be working, studying or self-sufficient, but sleeping rough and begging are grounds for removal.

The Home Office has  demanded that the European Commission tighten up EU laws.

The only sensible way to deal with this surely is for Britain to end its EU Membership before the restrictions in Britain on Romanians and Bulgarians, which limit them to certain jobs will be removed After January 1, as the taxpayer basically funding their Summer Holiday back to Romania through free tickets for flights & coaches back to Romania is a waste of taxpayers money that could be used to fund something that has a benefit to Britain as paying for Romanian Beggars to go back to Romania only for them to return weeks later is pretty much a waste of taxpayers money.

Is The Government Throwing Money Down The Drain With The Failing Work Program For Job seekers?


Is The Government Throwing Money Down The Drain With The Failing Work Program For Job seekers?

I think tat the answer to the question is most definitely yes, the number of people out of work for more than two years – the very people the Work Programme should be helping – has more than doubled since the general election, and the rate that those out of work for more than a year are coming off benefits has halved in the last 12 months.

The Work Program is a waste of Job seekers time as it’s basically just doing the same job search as what has to be done every week to satisfy the DWP requirement for benefit, it serves no advantage to people who have got Internet access at home as it’s just job searching at the providers office.

The work Program is supposed to be there to help Job Seekers find long term sustained employment.  I can’t vouch for other providers or there sub contractors, but the provider that I’m with has contracted out the work program in my area to a company called Wise Ability, and Wise Ability claim to want to help job seekers find long term sustained work, but if you take a close look at there website they are an employment agency, and totally ignore your Job Seekers agreement and try to force you into doing production line work regardless of if it’s on your Job Seekers Agreement or not.

Agency work isn’t long term sustained work as you don’t know from one day to the next if you will be earning anything or not.  Also with the changes to the Job Seekers Agreement regarding suspension from making a claim etc that the DWP have recently brought in it basically means that you will be stuck in an unstable job that you can’t get out of unless you have got enough money to support yourself while serving a suspension of up to 3 years.

The Labour Party have branded the Government’s Work Programme a “failure” on Monday, as it published new figures showing that the number of people out of work for over two years has more than doubled since the general election.

My call to Mr Cameron is to axe the Work Program and go back to the old in house New Deal scheme that was being used in the past, it would save the Government millions that could be used to pay off some of the country’s debit.

If long term unemployed are finding it hard to get long term sustained work it’s not due to the fact that they are lazy  or work shy, it’s due to the fact that the Governments aggressive job cuts in the Public sector have caused that many extra people to loose there job that there is an extra strain on the benefit system, and the aggressive Public Sector job cuts have in-advertently caused Private Sector employers to ether axe jobs or reduce the amount of vacancies that they make available, also in turn there are that many unemployed people that companies that are setting on have got such a huge pool of potential employees that they can afford to be picky with who they hire.

So  I ask you Is The Government Throwing Money Down The Drain With The Failing Work Program For Job seekers?

Lazy Council Workers And Litter Bins


Council Workers are lazy when it comes to emptying Litter Bins.  Where I live there is a Litter Bin on a grass bank that has been over flowing and is starting to create litter around it.  The litter bin has been over flowing since June to my knowlage, & it may have been over flowing longer.

The Council should be ashamed of themselves for letting Litter Bins over flow and create litter.

I’d love any comments on Lazy Council Workers And Litter Bins, also if any managers from Viola Waste, Sheffield City Council or Sheffield Homes read this post please leave a comment with a contact email address and I’ll email you the location & a picture of the over flowing litter bin.

Press Regulation Poses A Real Danger, Says Patten


BBC Trust Chairman Lord Pattern has told the Society of Editors conference that Press Regulation poses a real danger, and that only the Press can Reform the Press.

I’m all for Press Regulation to force the Press to reform as long as the regulation doesn’t go as far as to include Blogger’s.  As a keen Blogger is be upset if my blogging  started to be regulated.  But big Press needs to be regulated to stop phone hacking & other illegal & corrupt goings on to get a story.

Press Regulation Poses A Real Danger, Says Patten.  I say regulate the press but don’t take the regulating to far.
