Class War 2014: The Rich Kids of Snapchat

Isn’t life strange or disarranged ?

David Hencke

Bullingdon : The earlier generation before Rich Kids on Snapshot Bullingdon : The earlier generation before Rich Kids of Snapshot

If ever David Cameron’s claim that we are all in it together needed to be proved false, look at a site on Facebook called the Rich Kids of Snapchat.

Set up by a 17 year old British public schoolboy and liked by 244,000 people this site celebrates the life style of the super rich public schoolboys – the new generation expecting to run Britain in a decade or so.

Far from having any concern for the rest of us, this ” fun ” site worships money, fast cars, Gucci, luxury yachts and private jets,champagne and has an unhealthy interest in guns.

It is virtually the calling card of the new ” Bullingdon Club ” and the kids know they are the new ” boss class ” – the future generation of Tory Cabinet ministers, entrepreneurs and flashy businessmen and…

They think it’s all over ….. it isn’t!

Oh no it isn’t ! We half our own second half schedule to play & you have a twat goal keeper !

The lovely wibbly wobbly old lady

In celebration of the Football World Cup, Nick over at ILegal has this to say:-

5 World Cup stadiums wouldn’t be big enough 
to seat every benefit claimant awaiting a 
sickness assessment!

As we speak, assume 200,000 people fill the Maracana football stadium in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil as Germany & Argentina fight it out for the World Cup.

In Great Britain we would need five of these massive stadiums to seat around 750,000 people awaiting a basic sickness test & somewhere near 250,00 awaiting disability tests.  That’s around one million people going by for months on end without the much needed cash they need to live on.

This is the state of chaos which exists within Great Britain as we go about the most atrocious welfare reforms we’ve ever seen.  In Great Britain we don’t consider this to be a national scandal!

Emergency surveillance law to be brought in with cross-party support

Be sore afraid people of the UK , a flea’s bite is rarely felt but can be sickening. A wasp’s sting is always painful . A joint political order can be more deadly than a venomous snake than most people are aware of. It creeps up silently & within 48 hours , your dead or dormant .

… and do we think that these regulations won’t be used against the ordinary citizen.

Controversial emergency laws will be introduced into the Commons next Monday to reinforce the powers of security services to require phone companies to keep records of their customers’ calls.

The move follows private talks over the past week and the laws will have the support of Labour and the Liberal Democrats on the basis that there will be a sunset clause and a new board to oversee the functioning of the powers.

Details are due to be announced at a Downing Street press conference on Thursday morning.

The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, modelled on a similar US body and including external experts, will be required to check…

Tony Benn- my hero

I totally agree !

SMILING CARCASS'S TWO-PENNETH

Mr Benn is one of the finest politicians this great country of ours has ever seen or is likely to see in my lifetime. I would say give him the crown, make him King, but he would not accept it. He is the the best politician this country has ever or is likely to see. (Maybe Churchill would be a close second). I don’t expect universal agreement. I don’t suppose most of you will agree. What I do say is before you condemn him from what you know from the right-wing media, listen to what he has to say. The man is intelligent, knows his subject and quite often you might find, as I have, that he talks sense. Common sense that we all understand. And more power to the man. The world will be a sadder place when he and people of his ilk are gone.

Decent into World War 3

Decent into World War 3 BjwEAZeCAAEYHg9

Only 70 years ago was the beginning of the end of World War Two when D-Day unfolded and the reclamation of Europe from the grip of Nazi Germany. This was a struggle that ended with many millions of people being killed, murdered in many cases, the rise of:A general view shows damaged buildings and debris in Deir al-Zor

  • The United Nations to prevent further such global wars;
  • The War Crime Commission in the Hague to make sure that crimes committed during war against humanity would be prosecuted;
  • The Jewish homeland called Israel followed shortly after the end of the war;
  • The independent countries free from colonial rule;
  • Nuclear weapons, the proliferation of which escalated in the Cold War that followed between the West and Russia;

It is in this context that we can see the origins of the current problems being experienced in the Middle East, across the ancient and at one time great…

My Apologies Mr Cameron

I am having problems receiving 20-30 blogs & emails AGAIN they are all going into my delete folder.

Diary of an SAH Stroke Survivor

Today Mr Cameron I would like to give you my apologies, you see I have not grown up to aspire to what you want out of me.

I apologise for becoming very gravely ill at an early age of just 27 years old suffering from an SAH/STROKE that so nearly killed me perhaps it may of suited you better if I did die, but then that was not my fault either as I was looked after by the excellent NHS you seek to destroy.

I apologise for needing to take 18 months off work to enable me to recover enough to go back to work but I did ensure that this was the least time needed given the severity of my disabilities as I would have taken more time to ensure I was fully fit before I returned but do understand that by doing that it did not fit to…

National Audit Office discovers DWP is obliged to make bonus payments even to badly performing work programme providers

Welfare-to-work providers will receive undeserved bonuses of up to £25m even though they have failed to hit government targets for placing people in to long term jobs, official auditors have found.

The National Audit Office has discovered that flaws in work programme contracts meant that the Department for Work and Pensions is obliged to make incentive payments to even the worst performing providers.

In a report released today, auditors also say the success rates of contractors has fallen. Around nine in every 10 claimants of employment and support allowance, who include many people with illnesses and disabilities, are failing to maintain a job.

The report is the latest damning assessment of Iain Duncan Smith’s £2.8 billion programme which has been beset with problems since its inception in 2011.
