And they want the likes of this in politics – I think the tories should throw her out of the party immediately.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

A Tory council candidate has said on Facebook that she would never support “The Jew” Ed Miliband.

Tory candidate Gulzabeen Afsar referred to Ed Miliband as “Al Yahud“- which means “The Jew” in Arabic:

tory jew miliband

Here’s the full story from the Jewish News:

EXCLUSIVE: Tory council candidate: I’d never support ‘the Jew’ Miliband

It’s unthinkable I know, but some of the right-wing attacks on Miliband during the election – bacon sandwiches, backstabbing etc – have had nasty anti-semitic undertones:

‘Backstabber’ is an historical antisemitic insult: Tory campaign turns nasty

Could the vitriolic attacks on Ed Miliband be because he’s Jewish?

But perhaps it seems – not so unthinkable after all?

The DWP sent this to someone who applied for JSA. I spotted it on Facebook.

This “man” will have something happen to him soon as he knows too many names…

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today)

Well I think this may be unprecedented.

After the extraordinary decision by the Crown Prosecution Service not to prosecute Lord Janner for child sex abuse, Leicestershire Police are obviously so incensed that they have released an extremely strong statement on their official website from one of Janner’s alleged victims.

The man expressly requested that Leicestershire Police make his statement publicly available. So here it is:

This animal is still being protected because [of his status] and isn’t able to stand trial. They say that it’s not in the public interest, but isn’t it in the public interest to know what his victims have gone through at the hands of this man?

“If he was an everyday person with a normal life and job, justice would [have] been served, but as it stands we victims are just being pushed to the ground again and walked…

As one commentator has said – Pititful.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s George Osborne!)

Video posted by Labour List:

Osborne managed to beat Michael Howard’s infamous car crash interview – in which he refused to answer Jeremy Paxman’s question a mere 12 times – hands down:

Benefit tales

Just back from O’s PIP assessment, which we recorded successfully using 2 identical Phillips cassette recorders, bought for £56 online..

CAB advice on recording is as follows “The assessment with the health professional isn’t recorded, but you can use your own equipment to audio record it if you wish. However, you must be able to provide a full and accurate copy of the recording to the health professional at the end of the session, either on CD or audio cassette. You must tell the assessment provider before the appointment if you want to do this.”
But a double tape or CD recorder costs hundreds of pounds.
I rang the DWP who told me that as long as we produce 2 identical tapes simultaneously, and hand one over at the end of the assessment, the recordings don’t have to be made on the same machine. I rang ATOS who told me…

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today)

Here’s the full letter signed by 140 doctors on the destruction of the NHS over the last 5 years under the Cameron/Clegg government:

After five years of a government which pledged to protect the NHS, this election campaign makes it timely to assess its stewardship, since 2010, of England’s most precious institution. Our verdict, as doctors working in and for the NHS, is that history will judge that this administration’s record is characterised by broken promises, reductions in necessary funding, and destructive legislation, which leaves health services weaker, more fragmented, and less able to perform their vital role than at any time in the NHS’s history.

In short, the coalition has failed to keep its NHS pledges.

The 2012 Health and Social Care Act is already leading to the rapid and unwanted expansion of the role of commercial companies in the NHS. Lansley’s Act is…
