Domestic violence victim loses High Court bedroom tax case.

A mother living in a domestic abuse ‘sanctuary scheme’ has lost her landmark challenge against the bedroom tax, in a blow to similar services across the country.

Claimant ‘A’ – whose identity is protected – lives in a property which has a special ‘panic space’ installed by the council.

The woman had her housing benefit deducted because the council considered her panic room to be a spare bedroom, although she has been receiving discretionary housing payment to cover the shortfall in her benefit.

She started High Court judicial review proceedings against the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in May 2013, arguing that the bedroom tax is a discriminatory policy which will have severe consequences for her and her son.

In a judgement handed down on 29 January, which was summarised in a government bulletin on…

Benefit sanctions – No money whatsoever – The British public need to know the abject poverty and horror

leave a comment »

Smiling Carcass:

I feel so glad to be lucky enough to be employed. I feel so glad not to [currently] be at the mercy of these despots, both government and employees of the benefits system.

The creation of an army of unemployed, penniless, homeless or soon to be homeless individuals needs only a leader, an organiser to see revolution.

Sanction n. ~ A threatened penalty for disobeying a law or rule – a common enough word we hear for example let’s impose economic sanctions on Russia by for example not allowing the import of caviar, or let’s sanction South Africa for apartheid by denying a cricket match with England.

That is its normative use. But how about let’s sanction benefit claimants by not giving them any money whatsoever for three years

That version of the noun ‘sanction’ is what we have in the UK.  A sanction means anyone on welfare benefits is not given any money whatsoever and takes the form of 3 weeks for a first offence, 3 months for a second offence and 3 years for a third offence.  Yes that’s right NO MONEY WHATSOEVER for up to 3 years.

The benefit claimant must have to commit a heinous transgression to have a sanction imposed you may think?How does…

Cameron is clamping down on tax fraud. But by the working poor not the idle rich.

It’s not true at all that the Cameron government isn’t tackling tax fraud.

In fact, it has even brought in a US company – called Concentrix – to help HM Revenue and Customs and is paying the firm millions in taxpayers’ money to tackle tax fraud.

But Concentrix has been ordered to tackle possible tax fraud committed by working people so poor they need tax credits to survive – not rich corporations or individuals who are evading or avoiding tax.

In the meantime, George Osborne claims it’s not his or the government’s job to tackle tax fraud by the wealthy.

One rule for us ………

Cameron government subsidising millionaire grouse shooters with taxpayers’ money

Smiling Carcass:

Need a reasonnot to vote Tory?

Originally posted on Pride's Purge:

Did you know that millionaire grouse shooting landowners – whose well-heeled clients can pay more than £3,000 each for a single day’s shooting – are now receiving millions of pounds annually in government subsidies?

And did you know that the Cameron government has decided that from January 2015, those same millionaire land owners will receive around £56 a hectare in taxpayers’ money for organising grouse shooting?

So apparently – according to Cameron and Osborne’s Tory logic – we can’t afford schools and hospitals but there’s plenty of money to subsidise their wealthy mates’ country activities.

Call me old-fashioned – but shouldn’t this be a scandal?

Greece- showing us the way once more…

with 2 comments

greek communis

 

I have the opinion that we currently struggle under a despotic single party dictatorship.

How so do I reach that conclusion?

Because they all support a capitalist agenda.

But it’s OK if it’s capitalist, right? It’s ok if it has a fleeting recognition of democracy, right?

No, for me it ain’t fucking right.

How is it democratic when the political class, the ruling class are all pro-business to the detriment of the proletariat? (And they are.)

How is it democratic when my vote means nothing because the pro-capitalists will run the country, despite my objections to living under such a regime?

I, we can only strive to a true democracy where pelf cannot, does not decide who governs.

Democracy began with the Greeks; it seems the Greeks may be showing us what they really meant by democracy.

The benefit cap prevents the bedroom tax from working – IDS, rectum and humerus!

leave a comment »

Smiling Carcass:

“Or to put it far more simply – IDS you are as thick as porcine faeces and don’t have a bloody clue what the hell you are doing!”

Iain Duncan Smith is neither as thick as “porcine faeces” nor is he clueless.

He, and his cohorts know exactly what they are doing- and why.

IDS does your left hand know what the right is doing?

  1. IDS says bedroom tax is to free up under occupied social housing properties for overcrowded households.
  2. IDS also proposes to reduce the overall benefit cap to £23k per year or £440.79 per week.

So far no contention that IDS wants the above two – yet here is why they contradict.

Mrs & Mrs Jones solely under occupy a 3 bed social housing property and cannot afford to pay the £25 per week bedroom tax on their £100 per week social housing property..  They are forced to leave due to the bedroom tax deduction and the Smiths – a couple with 4 children living in an overcrowded 2 bed privately rented flat – wish to move in.  They should and will according to IDS’s theory.

HOWEVER

The Smiths despite being the political epitome of the “hardworking family” have one wage earner in…
