"Lord Bichard, an ex-chief of the Benefits Agency, said the elderly should get rewards and fines to make sure they are taking a more active part in the world.

“We’re prepared to say to people if you’re not looking for work, you don’t get a benefit. If you’re old and you’re not contributing in some way, maybe there should be some penalty attached to that. These debates never seem to take place."

Dot Gibson, general secretary of the National Pensioners Convention, said: “This is absolutely outrageous. Those who have paid their national insurance contributions for 30 or more years are entitled to receive their state pension and there should be no attempt to put further barriers in their way."

Confirmation of arrival of feudalist like era in the UK:

State of the Nation report: Social mobility in UK 'virtually stagnant'

Theresa May promised to tackle the "burning injustice" of social inequality when she entered Downing Street in 2016.... but theState of the Nation report said the situation had remained "virtually stagnant" since 2014.

Dame Martina Milburn, who has since been appointed as the new chairwoman Social Mobility Commission , said she sensed there was now "a real commitment" from the government.

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-48103017

Lol of course so a "Dame", this person from a position of privilege is going to be the new chairwoman and she's singing the praises of government already. This is just like the other Inquiries, or commissions in the UK, which involve various crimes of those in power against the unprivileged, child abuses scandals, Grenfell tower investigation. Government always says there will be an independent inquiry for such things and then it's found out that every time that the chosen chairperson is someone from a privileged background who ends up making sure the interests of the elite are protected.

Inequalities in pay and opportunities in the UK are becoming so extreme they are threatening democracy, an Institute for Fiscal Studies study has said.

The think tank warns of runaway incomes for high earners but rises in "deaths of despair", such as from addiction and suicide, among the poorest.

It warns of risks to "centre-ground" politics from stagnating pay and divides in health and education.

The report says such widening gaps are "making a mockery of democracy".

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is launching what it says is the UK's biggest analysis of inequality, which will be chaired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Prof Sir Angus Deaton.

Sir Angus said "people were troubled by inequality" more than at any time since the 1940s - and the impact was so serious that it suggested "democratic capitalism is broken".

Organised crime poses such a threat to the UK that an extra £3bn will be needed to fight it over the next three years, the National Crime Agency says.

Its head Lynne Owens says this includes more than doubling the NCA's annual budget from £424m to £650m.

In a speech later she will warn the public will "feel the consequences" if the government does not find the cash.

The agency annual review of organised crime says there are more than 4,500 groups with 37,000 members in the UK.

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-48261477


Try telling that to the demented UK PM who clearly stated that increased levels of violent crime attacks has no correlation to the dramatic reduction in police funding.

Poverty in the UK is 'systematic' and 'tragic', says UN special rapporteur

The UK's social safety net has been "deliberately removed and replaced with a harsh and uncaring ethos", a report commissioned by the UN has said.

Special rapporteur on extreme poverty Philip Alston said "ideological" cuts to public services since 2010 have led to "tragic consequences".

The report comes after Prof Alston visited UK towns and cities and made preliminary findings last November.

He concluded: "The bottom line is that much of the glue that has held British society together since the Second World War has been deliberately removed and replaced with a harsh and uncaring ethos."

The Australian professor, who is based at New York University, said government policies had led to the "systematic immiseration [economic impoverishment]" of a significant part of the UK population, meaning they had continually put people further into poverty.

The report cites independent experts saying that 14 million people in the UK - a fifth of the population - live in poverty, according to a new measure that takes into account costs such as housing and childcare.

In 2017, 1.5 million people experienced destitution, meaning they had less than £10 a day after housing costs, or they had to go without at least two essentials such as shelter, food, heat, light, clothing or toiletries during a one-month period.

Despite official denials, Prof Alston said he had heard accounts of people choosing between heating their homes or eating, children turning up to school with empty stomachs, increased homelessness and food bank use, and "story after story" of people who had considered or attempted suicide.

May resigns, and how not to be a Prime Minister:

Lewis Goodall Verified account
@lewis_goodall


A sad end. But I’m afraid we got here because Theresa May is a prime minister who is very bad at politics.

It didn’t have to be this way.


There will be a lot of bad takes saying “May had an impossible hand, no one could have done it.”

That is completely untrue. When she became prime minister May had complete leverage to define Brexit and set a strategic direction to get there.


The version she chose led us to this moment. The language she used (“Brexit means Brexit/No deal is better than a bad deal”) has been been the midwife to the populism we see now. She, more than anyone, legitimised no deal and made her own task much harder.


Even in January she could have changed tack. She could have made a bold offer to Parliament. She could have compromised. She could have acted *politically*. Instead her strategy was to try and ram through the same thing again and again- to force MPs to bend through force of will.

That was never going to work.

Worse still, her attacks on parliament and parliamentary government in this period were deeply corrosive and not worthy of a prime minister. They gave rhetorical and intellectual ammunition to Nigel Farage and his latest efforts.

She leaves office with few achievements as prime minister to her name and the future of the Conservative Party and country less certain than ever. It’s a sad end to a premiership of someone who has obviously tried very hard but it’s the truth.

Theresa May is a decent person and her application has been impressive. But the truth is hers is perhaps the worst premiership since the war.

She did confront big structural challenges. However, the Brexit process and the end of her premiership has been highly contingent on the decisions she’s made and the approach she chose. Let’s not demean her or our understanding of this period by pretending otherwise.

This period needed someone who felt politics to their fingertips and had quicksilver skill. May did not. Arguably, by temperament there were few more ill-suited to the historical moment in which we found ourselves.

Theresa May labelled 'disgraceful' by firefighters' union for listing Grenfell response as part of proud legacy


Theresa May has been labelled “disgraceful” by the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) for citing her response the Grenfell fire disaster as a proud part of her legacy.

During her emotional resignation speech the outgoing prime minister said the office had given her a “platform to give a voice to the voiceless, to fight the burning injustices that still scar our society”.

She added: “[That] it is why I set up the independent inquiry into the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, to search for the truth so nothing like it can ever happen again, and so the people who lost their lives that night are never forgotten.”

But rank-and-file firefighters reacted with fury.

FBU general secretary Matt Wrack said in a statement: “Many of the underlying issues at Grenfell were due to unsafe conditions that had been allowed to fester under Tory governments and a council for which Theresa May bears ultimate responsibility.

“The inquiry she launched has kicked scrutiny of corporate and government interests into the long-grass, denying families and survivors justice, while allowing business as usual to continue for the wealthy.

“For the outgoing prime minister to suggest that her awful response to Grenfell is a proud part of her legacy is, frankly, disgraceful.”

Britain: A "United" Kingdom How Much Longer?
The EU elections raise questions about the territorial integrity of the UK...

Britain Falls - Updates, news, and commentary regarding Britain and its collapse - Page 16 Palace_of_Westminster_from_the_dome_on_Methodist_Central_Hall
They were the elections that weren’t supposed to take place, but wound up proving highly significant for British politics. By now the U.K. should have divorced itself from the EU under Prime Minister Theresa May’s promise of “Brexit means Brexit.” But with her leadership turning out to be not so “strong and stable,” Britain finds itself still part of Europe. As a result, on May 23, voters in the European Parliament election seized the chance to send a resounding message to traditional centrist parties that the duopoly that has dominated U.K. politics since World War II — Conservative and Labour — is no more. Change is afoot.
Despite two years of disastrous Brexit negotiations with deal after deal blocked by Westminster politicians and considerable attempts by Remain (in EU) supporters, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, to lobby for a second referendum on Brexit, the indefatigable Nigel Farage led his Brexit Party to decisive victory, claiming 32 percent of the vote.
Britain Falls - Updates, news, and commentary regarding Britain and its collapse - Page 16 Nigel_Farage_39831293304


Taken at face value this result has reinforced the 2016 EU referendum result with a clear message: the U.K. wants out of Europe.

Scotland Always More Pro-Europe But a map of the voting ratio tells a different story in Scotland. As predicted, it was a historic result for the governing Scottish National Party, which stood on a Remain platform, advocating a second referendum. Their 38 percent vote rose from 29 percent in the last EU election five years ago. The Brexit Party by contrast secured just under 15 percent. As Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon concluded, Scotland has reinforced its pro-EU stance.
From the days of the Auld Alliance with France, long before the 1707 unification with England, Scotland has had its own relationship with the Continent. Links with universities such as Leiden in the Netherlands and trade links with Bruges, Belgium, and Gdansk, Poland, were in place long before similar connections were made with England.
Scotland has always been more pro-Europe and this election result emphasized that. It’s already being hailed as the necessary catalyst for a second referendum on Scottish independence or “IndyRef2” as it’s known closer to home. Nationalists have been calling for this since they were defeated 45 percent to 55 percent in the 2014 vote. But Sturgeon stuck to her guns, saying that the time was not right; as polls confirmed. However, less than a week after the EU election, the SNP has already published a new independence bill, declaring the EU election result a “fresh start” for Indyref2. A deadline has been set for May 2021.

Westminster can of course try to block any second referendum. At least three of the candidates to replace May have said they would. But that could court a serious backlash. More and more Scots believe that London is no longer interested in their views on anything, with the Brexit negotiations amply demonstrating this. As Scottish historian Tom Devine has commented, the Brexit talks demonstrated that any idea of a union based on “partnership and mutual respect” is “fraud and myth.” Under the circumstances, it is not far-fetched to envisage a Catalonia-style situation in which Scotland forges ahead with a second referendum in spite of Westminster.
In such an instance Scotland may get more support from EU allies than Catalonia did. Britain’s reputation in Europe, after all, has been severely damaged over Brexit, and the EU is, arguably, more likely to back a country interested in joining Europe, than one that has rejected it. In any case, it wouldn’t be the first time Scotland made such a move. In 1320 the Declaration of Arbroath was sent to the Pope, signed by 50 Scottish nobles and proclaimed Scotland’s independence.

Then there is the question of leadership. Sturgeon, in contrast to her Westminster counterpart, is widely trusted and respected in Scotland. Unlike May, she has provided the one thing that citizens value in a leader: consistency. Despite criticism for not calling another referendum to date, she stuck to her strategy – and it has paid off. The next campaign for independence is sure to be more effective this time around. It was widely agreed that the economic arguments for independence were the weakest link in the Yes campaign back in 2014. Aware of this, the Nationalists are publishing a guide on the subject, to be delivered to 2.4 million Scottish households this summer.
All indicators now are pointing to a no-deal Brexit, which will only boost the nationalists’ case. It could also potentially create chaos in another part of the United Kingdom—the island of Ireland.
Ireland’s Borders Leaving without a deal would be the worst-case scenario for anyone who has any memory of the Northern Ireland Troubles. It’s feared that a hard border between north and south — which would occur if Northern Ireland, as part of the U.K., left the EU — with all the strict control and customs checks that the EU requires on its borders — could trigger a return to the days of bombings and shootings and jeopardise everything achieved under the Good Friday Agreement. It would be the ultimate provocation to Irish nationalist paramilitary groups who believe in a United Ireland.
A hard border, therefore, would be deemed a step back into the dark days of conflict, which no-one wants given all the lives that were lost to it throughout the 20th century. Indeed, times have changed and so has the political landscape on the Emerald Isle. The Irish Republic has benefited from EU and Eurozone membership and for many in the north has seemed like a beacon of economic prosperity. By contrast, Northern Ireland doesn’t even have a government — as the power-sharing agreement between the nationalists and unionists broke down two years ago — and the economic outlook is clouded by Brexit.

These factors — together with a majority of Northern Irish voting to remain in the EU in the 2016 referendum — have therefore raised an idea that would have seemed unthinkable just a few years ago: that of Irish reunification. Earlier this year several U.K. cabinet ministers cited a “very real” prospect that a no-deal Brexit would lead to a vote on Irish reunification. Polls both north and south of the border have indicated increasing desire on both sides for this to happen. Granted, a united Ireland naturally brings its own set of obstacles and it’s not something to count on happening tomorrow. It is remarkable, nonetheless, that it is even being discussed.
All this raises the real possibility of the dissolution of the United Kingdom. Poor, inconsistent leadership from May, and a Westminster parliament that has put party politics and self-interest before the delivery of Brexit, has created the current crisis, which in turn has been a gift to Scottish and Irish nationalists.
What previously may have been considered a risky, unstable option for some voters — independence — no doubt now looks like a safer bet given the quagmire of Brexit. Voters now have to weigh up if it is in their interest to remain inside a union that no longer serves the Scottish people (some would argue never did).
As Robert Burns, Scotland’s 18thcentury bard, put it: “I have long said to myself, what are the advantages Scotland reaps from this so called Union, that can counterbalance the annihilation of her independence and her very name?” More than 200 years later, Scots are still pondering the same question.

Boris Johnson has alluded to Nigel Farage as a threat to the UK, putting him in the same category as known Marxist Jeremy Corbyn, and said that only he can save the country.
https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/06/09/johnson-describes-farage-threat-claims-only-he-can-save-country/


In an interview with the Sunday Times, Mr Johnson said: “I truly believe only I can steer the country between the Scylla and Charybdis of Corbyn and Farage and onto calmer water. This can only be achieved by delivering Brexit as promised on October 31 and delivering a One Nation Tory agenda.”
Scylla and Charybdis were a pair of sea monsters from Greek mythology who sat on either side of the Strait of Messina between Sicily and the Italian mainland.
In the wide-ranging interview, Boris said that he will aim to take the UK out of the bloc on October 31st and will withhold the £39 billion withdrawal payments reportedly owed to the EU until better terms are negotiated, including ditching the ‘backstop’ preventing a so-called hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
However, EU Chief negotiator Michel Barnier has said that no such renegotiation will be possible. In a stark warning to the Conservative Party leadership hopefuls, he said that renegotiation was not an option, whether to alter the backstop or anything else. In a press conference in Slovakia on Friday, Mr Barnier said that the withdrawal treaty agreed with Theresa May was “the only one possible”, adding: “A new prime minister will not change the problem.”

Despite being a leading figure in the Brexit campaign, many have urged wariness of Boris Johnson for his reputation as a notorious careerist and his apparent willingness to change his views to suit his ambitions. Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said last week that he had some “quite serious concerns” over Johnson, pointing out that Johnson had voted for Mrs May’s withdrawal agreement on the third time of asking despite previously rejecting it.
It was reported by The Sun last week that remainer MPs had begun to be won over by Boris as they saw him and his views as “malleable”. One senior Remain minister said: “Boris is malleable. Boris will do what is in Boris’s own best interests, as and when the time comes. If that means going ahead with a second referendum as the only way through the impasse, then that’s what he will do. Some colleagues who don’t see eye to eye with Boris see that as their best opportunity.”
As well as referring to Nigel Farage in the same breath as hard-left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Johnson also shunned a meeting with President Donald Trump during the President’s state visit last week — despite the President saying that Johnson would make a “great prime minister” and offering a meeting between the two — thus further calling into question Mr Johnson’s political stances.
As it stands, Johnson is currently the favourite to take over from Theresa May as Conservative leader and prime minister.

Marxist? It seems today everyone who don't want war and the poor not get fucked all over is a hardcore Communist or what?

The same the other way, everyone who is against open borders or the genderism is a nazi.

Everything is black or white? That is not my thing.
