    This made me smile and then it made me cry. I hope the ministers (con/dems AND labour ) enjoy every mouthful of their £200 meal and alcohol subsidised allowance. I hope they sleep peacefully in any one of their tax payer subsidised bedrooms but I also hope that their consciences eat THEM up from the inside and that they have their spin doctors ready with a script when they meet their Maker! Happy Easter and even happier ALL FOOLS day! Sleep well SCUM I hope you stay well and healthy so that you can enjoy your stolen wealth. SHAME ON YOU ALL!

  • Tam Dean Burn March 30, 2013 at 10:03 am

    WHO IZ PAYING YOU? asks conspiracy theorist tin-foil hat tory who possibly believes UFOs are a Labour Party plot to keep tax-dodging tories (this includes “Libertarian” shitbags) down

    I see the Telegraph is really upping the anti today regarding the ‘bedroom tax’ and ll the right wing nutters are falling in line – they’ve even got Grunt Shapps out arguing his kids share a room and there’s nothing wrong with it!!! What scum they are and where is labour …. erm ….missing in battle again

  • jay March 31, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    To give another perspective on the damage the bedroom tax will cause.
    My daughter and my two grand-daughters and grandson are staying in our “spare bedroom” this week.

    They live over 150 miles away from us and come home during the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays.

    Because of my illness this is usually the only time my wife and I get to see them.
    If we didn’t have this “spare bedroom” they would be unable to stay and we would only see them for a few hours before they travelled home again because we wouldn’t have any accomodation available.

    The Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats, the caring parties committed to keeping families apart.

  • jed goodright April 1, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    the press really upping the anti today comments and editorials everywhere. right wing *unts expressing their pleasure – it really is WAR and the poor and disabled being ridiculed on every front – with labour nowhere to be seen and precious little by way of support or defence

    WE REALLY ARE FUCKED

  • jay April 1, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    and these right wing scum laugh and ridicule analogies made comparing today in the UK with thirties Germany.

    This song is offered by the writer under creative commons, so feel free to copy it and sing it whenever any politician is within earshot…….

    The Battle Hymn Of The Disabled. (To the tune “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” otherwise known as “John Brown’s Body”)

    The sick and the disabled lie a-mouldering in their homes.
    The bankers live in luxury just like the Zurich gnomes,
    With private helicopters, jets, and even aerodromes,
    And yet they still want more.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    They will never help the poor.

    The bankers did the nasty, but the sick take all the blame,
    The Tories are just Nazis now in everything but name,
    We cannot vote for Labour, because they are just the same.
    The Lib-Dems are as bad.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    When they go we’ll be glad.

    You’ve got no arms, you’ve got legs, you’ve got no eyeballs either,
    But you can hear, and you can speak, so they call you a skiver;
    And if you say you cannot work they say you are a liar,
    And they’ll stop your benefits.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    They are just a load of shits.

    They’d like to shout “Heil Hitler”, but they dare not say his name,
    The trouble is we’ve spotted now what really is their game.
    It’s death to the disabled and the killing of the lame,
    Like Auschwitz in the past.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Their nastiness is vast.

    You’d think with all their lying that their noses would be long,
    But we’ll make sure the truth will out, by singing of our song,
    To get publicity for truth, so we can right their wrong,
    And justice will be done.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    We’ll go and stop their fun.

    Chris “Heil”ing is a Nazi, he believes that “Work Makes Free.”
    He wants to have forced labour, and Atos to have a fee.
    He wants to cut our benefits, make slaves of you and me,
    So businessmen will gain.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    They really are insane.

    Maria “Killer” Miller; stuff the truth, she’ll tell a lie.
    If you’re a paraplegic then you’re “Just as fit as I.”
    Despite what they are after, don’t just curl up and die,
    Have strength, be brave, fight back.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    We’ll get them all the sack.

    The worst one of those Nazis is that Ian Dunked-in-Shit.
    You might be quadriplegic, but he would declare you fit.
    He’s got no empathy because he is a nasty git,
    His comeuppance will come.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Life’s not all right for some.

    To those who don’t support us, who believe the Tory lies,
    I say look at the truth that stands before your very eyes.
    For once we’ve gone, then you’ll be next, it is time to get wise.
    We have to fight as one.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    We’ll fight you ‘till we’ve won.

    For all of the disabled, then, the future’s very bleak.
    There’s seventy-three people who are dying every week,
    Who’ve been told that they’re fit to work, and so some work should seek,
    But they’re dead for goodness sake.

    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    Tory, Tory, Nazi bastards,
    How many deaths does it take?

    POWER TO THE PEOPLE.

  • michael skinner April 1, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    to all the song writers that is brilliant. The lyrics are so truthful I reacted with laughter very quickly replaced by anger and hatred for the political bastards we have found ourselves with. God has risen I think we the public will have to do the same and get rid of these Nazis again.

  • brianfkirkham April 2, 2013 at 12:35 am

    Here’s an idea, how’s about we all sign a motion, to be read in parliament that the monies should fairly reflect the constituents these people claim to be serving. How we would word it I have no real idea – that’s for someone else..but the idea these people are supposed to be serving us and coining it in whilst we are led into forced labour is quite frankly sickening. The palace of Westminster, and its inhabitants should realise it’s own reasoning …. all in this together ? prove it Mr speaker, prime minister ,deputy prime minister and leader of the opposition.

    found this on the independent editorial site:

    VERITAS 12 hours ago
    While Western governments continue to borrow more than they earn in order to prop a welfare state that does nothing more than keep a quarter of their population alive we on our way to hell in a hand cart. This 25% never have, and never will, contribute anything to society other than act as a millstone round our necks as we sink, drowning, in a very deep sea.

    not only is this comment still there, it is a very good analysis of what the poor and disabled in the uk are up against. The writer makes these sort of comments regularly on blogs and highlights his own ignorance and prejudices repeatedly. Somehow the media don’t see this as a problem. Disabled people are on their own in the fight for justice. Today Osbourne is out to justify the wilful and neglectful act of his government. But there is no opposition to rely on for support. May they all rot in hell

  • jed goodright April 2, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    so where’s the comment on all that’s happening here??????????????????????????

  • Dissabled dave April 3, 2013 at 9:28 am

    If you can’t do anything else you can at least sign the petition calling IDS’s bluff:

    https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/iain-duncan-smith-iain-duncan-smith-to-live-on-53-a-week#share

    I’ve written to my MP saying that as this petition has three times as many signatures as the Government’s own petition site requires for a topic to be raised in Parliament, then he should raise this as a matter of urgency. I doubt he will because he is a Tory, but surely some of you must have MPs who would be delighted to raise this at Prime Minister’s Question time?

    There is no way than an out of touch rich twat like IDS could survive on £53 a week, so let’s get him between a rock and a hard place. If he doesn’t step up to the challenge, that is tantamount to admiting that he is a lying twat who doesn’t know what he is talking about, but if he does step up he will fail, which is also tantamount to admiting that he is a lying twat who doesn’t know what he is talking about.

    This petition made the television news when it hit 150,000 signatures and is now heading towards 400,000. That’s over 150,000 signatures each day. Get all of your friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbours, people you see down the Jobcentre, the postman, the milkman, and anyone else you can think of, to sign up as well. Let’s get it to half a million signatures by the end of today, and a million by the end of the week.

    Let’s make sure that this hits the news and the front pages and forces IDS to either take on the challenge or resign from politics.

    People power CAN and MUST make a difference.

    Further Symbolisation of the Oblivious State of the Present State of Britain

    Besides Wrecked Public Services and Towns that Resemble Ruins of Civilisation’s
    the Casualisation of Attitude and Outside of the Post Civilisation Townie Briton is Shown by an Amoral Person who Turns a Blind Eye to the Situation of Suffering of a Past 80 Years Old Geriatric who uses Soundbites to Not Address the Issue which is that an 80 Year plus Geriatric Existing in a Rat Infested Dump with a Collapsing Ceiling Need’s Help .

    It is Not being a ” Busybody ” to be Concerned about the Effect upon the Health of a
    Past 80 Old residing in a Rat Infested Dump but it is Oblivious to Not Care about this
    person’s Plight by Not trying to get Proper Help .

    Nihilism and Obliviousness two Hallmark’s of ” Modern Britain ” .

    The Con Dem Dictatorship are Nation Wreckers and so are Oblivious Members of
    the Public
