The TORY impoverishment of Student Nurses.

Yesterday was the last day of parliament in a week where the HoC voted with a clear majority to commit to £205BILLION in spending on a Trident weapons of mass annihilation nuclear weapons system, and the new PM used the day, like the coward she is, to announce that bursaries for the education of new student nurses will be cut from 2017. Meaning nurses will face £50,000+ debt for a degree qualification on top of which they already work a 35hr week on top to achieve. Money for Nuclear Bombs / Massive personal DEBT for student nurses!

Tory Bastards, absolute bastards!

This was just one of many “bad news” stories hidden yesterday – The Guardian article:                                          Bursaries for student nurses will end in 2017, government confirms Anger as Department of Health says replacing bursaries with loans will free up £800m a year to create extra nursing roles theguardian.com      

 

This was just one of many “bad news” stories hidden yesterday.

Britain’s new prime minister is seen as a ‘safe pair of hands’, and many of us are yearning for that at a time of massive political turmoil. But, argues Owen Jones, we should still think about what kind of politician she is. From opposing the convention of human rights, to telling illegal immigrants to ‘go home’, there are things we should know about our new prime minister… https://www.facebook.com/theguardian/videos/10154358383056323/

 

Mark McGowan, The Artist Taxi Driver: “Not only does Theresa May want student nurses to work unpaid for 37.5hrs a week they also want to charge them £10,000’s just to be able to work!”

 

May is such an appalling threat to any sort of freedom (except that of fraudsters to evade detection)

This Theresa May government will get away with murder… just like the previous Tory administration did with IDS.

This all happened under David Cameron’s watch.

George Duncan Smith: “I’m improving peoples lives, I’m getting them off benefits and I’m proud of my achievements.”

Below are some of his ‘achievements’;

Larry Newman suffered from a degenerative lung condition, his weight dropping from 10 to 7 stone. Atos awarded him zero points, he died just three months after submitting his appeal.

Paul Turner, 52 years old. After suffering a heart attack, he was ordered to find a job in February. In April Paul died from ischaemic heart disease.

Christopher Charles Harkness, 39. After finding out that the funding for his care home was being withdrawn, this man who suffered with mental health issues, took his own life.

Ian Caress, 43. Suffered multiple health issues and deteriorating eyesight. Ian was found fit for work by Atos, he died ten months later having lost so much weight that his family said that he resembled a concentration camp victim.

Iain Hodge, 30. Suffered from the life threatening illness, Hughes Syndrome. Found fit for work by Atos and benefits stopped, Iain took his own life.

Wayne Grew, 37. Severely depressed due to government cuts and the fear of losing his job, Wayne committed suicide by hanging.

David Elwyn Hughs Harries, 48. A disabled man who could no longer cope after his parents died, could find no help from the government via benefits. David took an overdose as a way out of his solitude.

Denis Jones, 58. A disabled man crushed by the pressures of government cuts, in particular the Bedroom Tax, and unable to survive by himself. Denis was found dead in his flat.

Shaun Pilkington, 58. Unable to cope any more, Shaun shot himself dead after receiving a letter from the DWP informing him that his ESA was being stopped.

Paul ?, 51. Died in a freezing cold flat after his ESA was stopped. Paul appealed the decision and won on the day that he lost his battle to live.

Chris MaGuire, 61. Deeply depressed and incapable of work, Chris was summonsed by Atos for a Work Capability Assessment and deemed fit for work. On appeal, a judge overturned the Atos decision and ordered them to leave him alone for at least a year, which they did not do. In desperation, Chris took his own life, unable to cope anymore.

Peter Duut, a Dutch national with terminal cancer living in the UK for many years found that he was not entitled to benefits unless he was active in the labour market. Peter died leaving his wife destitute, and unable to pay for his funeral.

Miss DE, Early 50’s. Suffering from mental illness, this lady committed suicide less than a month after an Atos assessor gave her zero points and declared her fit for work.

Robert Barlow, 47. Suffering from a brain tumour, a heart defect and awaiting a transplant, Robert was deemed fit for work by Atos and his benefits were withdrawn. He died penniless less than two years later.

Carl Joseph Foster-Brown, 58. As a direct consequence of the wholly unjustifiable actions of the Job centre and DWP, this man took his own life.

Martin Hadfield, 20 years old. Disillusioned with the lack of jobs available in this country but too proud to claim benefits. Utterly demoralised, Martin took his own life by hanging himself.

David Clapson, 59 years old. A diabetic ex-soldier deprived of the means to survive by the DWP and the governments harsh welfare reforms, David died all but penniless, starving and alone, his electricity run out.

Stephen Lynam, 53 suffered from anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, a heart condition and musculo-skeletal problems. Found ‘fit for work’ after a WCA. After 22 weeks his mandatory reconsideration was turned down. Facing eviction, not eating properly and getting even more depressed he died shortly after finding out he was allowed to appeal the departments decision.

Benjamin Del McDonald, 34 took his own life after his benefits were stopped and he was threatened with eviction from his home.

Mark Harper has insisted the Government is right to ignore these achievements.

David Cameron is “proud” of George Duncan Smith’s achievements!

THIS IS FOR ALL OF YOU – Please read and SHARE.

This explains how your opinions are being formed, played and manipulated by Foreign Billionaires into clambering for War in Syria.

The source here is from “VETERANS FOR PEACE UK” on Facebook.

This blog link ( https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2015/09/why-murdoch-pushes-for-war/ ) explains EXACTLY why the PSYCHOPATH Rupert Murdoch and his minions Rebekah Brooks and prime-puppet David Cameron are escalating the push for all out War in Syria.

Rothschild’s Genie Energy ( Link: http://genie.com/media/genie-energy-in-the-media/ ) has “permission” to drill in Syria’s Golan Heights and Rothschild’s GENIE ENERGY in Kurdistan which is now the main exporter of crude oil towards Western refineries in Turkey.

ISIS/ISIL/ DAESH in Iraq conveniently destroyed all Iraqi state pipeline network infrastructures which were enabling Iraqi state to sell its own northern oil around Mossul.
How convenient is Daesh to the Rothschild and Israel???
Before the rise of Daesh (in which the west have the utmost responsibility) Iraq refused to sell oil to Israel in support to the Palestinian struggle.
Now, through GENiE ENERGY, Israel imports 2/3 of its oil from Kurdistan … And guess who is the main supporter for the recognition to an “independant” Kurdistan ? Benyamin Netanyahu of course …

From the Turkish port of Ceyhan, oil is shipped towards Cyprus and then to Ashkelon and Ashodot where it is stocked and refined by PAZ OIL (Which had been created by the Rothschild back in the day and is now bigger than the Israeli state company).

Imagine, an oil rich Kurdistan supplying oil to Israel in the middle of Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran of course! What a better excuse for more wars ?

I also read that the Iraqi state complained on what is a blatant theft of Iraq’s resources by the Rothschilds.


Rebekah Brooks, first day back on the job for the heinous ginger c*nt and the shit rag Sun paper begins ramping up the War rhetoric on the orders of her psychopathic FOREIGN boss Rupert Murdoch who is playing this country’s Prime Minister like a fuckin puppet.

Wake Up! We’re sleepwalking into yet another OIL war!

That’s how the game works.

Mark summed up the abject failure of Miliband’s Labour in this video.

They never stood with the people at parliament square, the anti-austerity, They never stood with the firefighters, They never stood with the nurses, They never stood against ideological austerity, They never stood with the underground strikers, They never stood with the evicted Mums at Sweets way estate in London… BUT, They stood with the TORIES over Yes Scotland​ and everyone saw THIS.

Labour is a busted flush. It’s had it’s time. Socialism needs to radically alter to meet people’s needs not the needs of career politicians and councillors and assembly ministers and Euro-MPs. The arseholes in suits no longer represent anyone but their own interests.

I’m despondent. Yes.

For what it’s worth, I have repeatedly said voting isn’t the Apex of political activity, as the majority in Britain think it is, voting is just part of the engagement.
Tony Benn said, we have to keep fighting the same battles over and over again because the generations coming along, keep making the same mistakes as those before them…

Or alternatively we could sell our souls and remain as worthless wage slaves and sheeple – useless eaters and stock, as Iain Duncan Smith refers to anyone who isn’t him…

It was always going to end like this for the Ed Miller Band, not even the most deluded fan saw him as leader of the gang.
What this election of, Call Me Dave Part Deux, is going to do is turn Britain into something like the 80’s of mass unemployment, a health service that cant cope, and a rise in the super-rich LOADSAMONEY class in the South.

A lot of people in this country should now be ashamed of themselves today, many of them will be the worst effected, but they won’t of course.
Another sad day in the decline of Britain.

Only a true Independent Scotland will save the day for socialism.

England is fucked, it will descend into violence, nationalistic and racial. 3.8million nationalistic UKIPpers voted with just one seat, they will realise 1.4 millions Scots voters got 56 seats, there may well be riots, but for the wrong reasons.

Wales will be forgotten, it already has been. Truly fucked.

These Tory quacks and charlatans are beyond belief


For some time now, Conservative strategist Lynton Crosby has been reassuring his adopted party they will reach “crossover”. This is the term he’s been using to describe the moment when they take over the lead from Labour in the polls and push ahead.

The date of crossover, rather like the rapture, keeps being pushed back. It was meant to be Christmas last year, but nothing of significance happened then apart from a particularly good Dr Who special. January was also disappointing, February was frigging desolate and March passed without a squeak.

Now we’re in the middle of April, what TS Eliot described as “the cruellest month”: for the Tories that’s proved true, with Labour and Conservative still stuck on more or less 33%.

It would be easy then for David Cameron to give up on Mr Crosby and his promise of good polls ahead; except, he can’t. Lynton Crosby is his Designated Bastard, the man his party has paid fistfuls of money to order all of them about and get them to do whatever it takes to win. It’s the stuff of tradition for Tory governments to get in an expensive Designated Bastard at election time; it’s the line of life, a cycle of comfort. The Designated Bastard arrives, tells them not to be pussies, puts up posters about Labour’s tax bombshells, flashes up cartoons of the Labour leader in the pocket of someone, or being the poodle of someone, sitting on someone’s lap, wearing someone’s hair, or being stuck up someone’s arse.

Usually, the party pays devoted attention to the Designated Bastard.

First, because he’s so expensive but really because he’s such a Bastard. He gets them to do things they’ve spent the past five years being ordered not to under any circumstances. For five years, they’ve been clenching their teeth and talking about partnership and coalition. They’ve been pushing Big Societies and feeling everyone’s pain by sobbing that we’re all in it together.

Except, this time, it seems not to be. Lynton Crossover hasn’t worked.

And that’s a problem, since there is no plan B.

The Tories believe in tradition and the tradition has always been that being a Bastard works.

So panic sets in. Once panic starts, rational political behaviour falls apart. Hence the true “crossover” we got last week – the much commented on swapping of clothes brazenly taking part in the Labour and Conservative manifestos.

Labour painted themselves as the party of fiscal rectitude, while the Tories went crazy on uncosted spending commitments. In this crazy looking-glass politics, Labour turn out to be the party with the most conservative financial commitment to the NHS, while the Conservatives are the most profligate.

This muddle has been a long time coming. For decades now, each main party has been defining itself on how similar it is to the other and how different it is from its own past. New Labour stole Thatcherite prudence and Cameroonian Conservativism detoxified its nasty image by going green and socially aware. Like two galaxies drawing closer to each other, it’s no wonder they ended up in a massive swirl of confusion.

The spinning can’t be stopped: if anything, it gets faster and faster until you can’t tell which one is which.

Labour’s paranoia about looking like Old Labour I can understand: battered for so long by a mostly rightwing press, it still clings to a suspicion that even in this digital age the old tabloid headlines still affect people’s opinion.

The Tory volte-face I find truly extraordinary, though. Normally, this type of trickery is done with just words. Last election, it was the verbal gymnastics contained in such slogans as “Vote Blue, Go Green” or that most perfect of semantic paradoxes, “Vote for Change: Vote Conservative”. It’s a basic trick with words, in which you take a word and insist it means its opposite. The more you insist, the greater chance people will believe you. (We know it as Orwellian double-speak)

This time round, though, there is something desperate about the trick.

  • They will “spend” on the NHS more than Labour, but that spending will be funded by carrying on with their “track record” on the economy.
  • They’ll block Scottish MP’s voting on certain tax laws but that will somehow keep the UK united.
  • They will rail against recklessness, but concede a European referendum (to stave off a threat to their support)
  • and pledge billions in public spending based on no more than an inkling the economy’s going to keep growing.

All this time, they’ll muffle this panic with words such as “steady” and “on course”, words used to conceal an unsteady veer away from stability.

They’re like bad magicians who, at the moment of subterfuge, simply shout: “What’s that?” and point to the other side of the room in the hope we’ll turn away.

This isn’t wordplay – this is charlatanism pure and simple.

David Cameron is indulging in basic quackery, trying to sell you stuff he knows doesn’t work. He’s doing it with our money and he’s conjuring with people’s lives.

We know there’s no magic; the money will come from the cuts and deficit reductions and benefit targets and financial squeezes on those Cameron knows won’t be voting for him anyway.

It’s the bastardly misuse of the public purse and the final proof, if any were needed, that he is unfit to lead his country and his party unfit to govern.

Katie Hopkins is the typical private school toff.

Her parents never cared about her much, never said they loved her, and packaged her off to some boarding school aged 7. She’s a twisted victim of her upbringing. She sees the world as cold and loveless as her childhood and realised a great way to get attention is to spit bile and vitriol and draw shocked reactions to her attention seeking. She should be in a psychiatrist chair not on tv and in newspapers. She is mentally unstable, possibly sociopathic, and is being exploited by Murdoch media for entertainment.


I still Don’t care” is the ideology of David Cameron and Katie Hopkins, it is the message of our time.


The David Clapson story  – David Cameron left furious after the Andrew Marr interview

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/david-cameron-left-furious-andrew-5551652

David Cameron was left fuming today after being grilled on live TV over the death of a diabetic ex-soldier whose benefits had been stopped.

The angry Prime Minister’s “lips went thin” with rage after he was quizzed about tragic David Clapson, according to witnesses.

Downing Street did not deny the PM was angered by the questions but rejected suggestions he “stormed out” of the studio after filming finished.

The Mirror told last summer how David, 59, died with just £3.44 in his bank account after his £71.70-a-week Jobseeker’s Allowance was axed because he missed an appointment .

Tests show he died from diabetic ­ketoacidosis – caused by not taking his insulin.

His devastated sister Gill Thompson said he may have stopped injecting himself with the lifesaving drug after becoming so desperate over his lack of cash and work.



I woke up this morning to a protracted item on BBC a Radio Four’s flagship Today programme that featured that utter CUNTSERVATIVE turned UberKIPper Mark Reckless MP commenting on the vile bias of Immigration Watch, it was totally unbalanced apart from the Polish Ambassador’s minor almost desperate input.

Like Mark McGowan says here, it’s election time coming, you sit down to your breakfast and they feed you hate and racism, that they make it up every single day.

Like the Daily Mail headline SLEEP GIVES YOU CANCER.

When it’s THIS SOCIETY that is fucking CANCEROUS! The majority of people are absorbing this message over their cornflakes, when they drive to work or doing the ironing or having an afternoon snooze, the messages are insidious, the headlines incessant. Even my own father’s attitude and conversation each time is right of Alf Garnett and informed by the Daily Heil or the BBC “we don’t tell you what to think but we tell you HOW to to think”. The Soft Power messages are everywhere.

we don’t have mainstream media, there’s nothing mainstream about it, it’s EXTREME. – John Pilger.

‘Art as a Weapon’

My favourite quote (and one that motivates all my art outcomes) George Grosz –

“My art was to be a gun & a sword; my drawing pens I declared to be empty straws as long as they did not take part in the fight for freedom.”

Peter Ulrich Weiss, vols I-III, ‘Aesthetics of Resistance / Die Asthetik des Widerstands’, (1975-1981) said:
“Meaning derives in the refusal to renounce resistance no matter how intense the suppression and it is in and through art that new models of political action and social understanding can be found.”

Staff at the National Gallery London held a 5-day strike against privatisation. This is a report on the Day of Action against Mark Getty, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Gallery.

PUBLIC SERVICES SHOULD BE FOR THE NATION, NOT FOR PROFIT!

National Gallery Strike against Privatisation

by Drift Report

CLARA speaks to Mark McGowan (The Artist Taxi Driver)

The National Gallery is attempting to outsource all 400 gallery assistants to a private company. The Board is made up of Getty and Rothschild Billionaires, Heseltine’s wife, and ex City Hedge Funders.

The PCS Union rep was suspended hours before the worker’s first industrial action. The same is happening to public art galleries as is happening to the National Health Service. Privatisation by stealth.
Build a bonfire put the Tories on top

The Elites are practicing what Joseph Nye called Soft Power. This is not what capitalism is about, it should more correctly be called CORPORATISM. The binding together of Fascism and corporations.
