    So we have the Tory SchutzStaffel (SS) and the milder Nazi New Labories to choose from and fear for all our futures, in this Fair Deal Britain, as the sick, disabled and working poor, pay dearly for the super-rich’s gambling debts!

    Anyone else wishing them all a real happy f******* Christmas?

    This cowardly decision by the labour party will cost them dearly. It is a complete betrayal of traditional labour voters and a kick in the teeth to the unemployed, sick and disabled who suffer workfare and dtaconian sanctions. I duly emailed my own MP, Russell Brown (lab) to inform him that I will never trust the labour party again and will not give them my vote. This shall now go to SNP who are more like traditional labour than the westminster labour party. The labour party have buried themselves with this.

    I very much doubt the labour party needed to engage in covert guerilla action to expose the modus operandi behind the Benefit Sanctions regime: it just sounds like more ‘retrospective’ manipulation of the truth – a truth the Labour Party seem unable and unwilling to grasp. One might have hoped that the whole issue of benefits sanctions would have been debated and thrashed out long before they ever made it into Law. Since the Coalition seem to like playing ‘dirty tricks’ – why did NONE of the labour party gather ANY intelligence about the possibility the Sanctions Regime might be abused or used as a de-facto ‘weapon’ – a deliberately targeted and incontrovertible weapon – against the “MOST VULNERABLE..”

    If the labour Party aligns itself with this evil regime, it WILL pay the price and it WILL rue the day it DARED to DISHONOUR the very people who PAID for its existence!

    WE do not forget, we do not forgo and we do not forgive.. not now.. not in the face of the fact that they ALL awarded themselves MORE EXPENSES IMMEDIATELY AFTER THEY VOTED TO CHEAT OTHERS OUT OF THEIR PITTANCE..

    Now.. Do you THINK we will have mercy on YOU WHO ABSTAINED?

    Yesterday i voted on a ballot form to re elect Len McCluskey, i’m glad i did.

    ……….but to be sold down the river by that other bastard?

    It defies belief……….

    ……….and all these excuses, “This is why we had to make difficult decisions on the Job seekers Bill”………..

    What a load of wankers!

    You are only as strong as your weakest link, never show your hand and the best form of defence is attack. They all have a bearing in what we want but sadly they dont seem to apply to the Labour party.

    We have created a daisy chain that everyone can see, that is ready to surrender….

    ” Unite’s Len McCluskey threatens to cut purse strings”

    “threatens” and that is all Mr McCluskey will do!, McCluskey is part and parcel of the problems we have!, looks good to the weak minded, to keep them voting New Labour!.

    Mark my words, a lucrative seat in the House of Lords awaits McCluskey, a place where so many ex trade union leaders sit…Remember… Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde (Brenda Dean; former General Secretary, SOGAT).


    Come on folks, WAKE UP!!!.

    I know because, I had a friend who worked for the DWP through all its name changes, that there has always been pressure on the staff to withhold as many benefits as possible. This sort of “policy” will always affect those worst who are unable to fight for their rights such as very poorly people or the very young or those with learning disabilities. It may well be a policy which has got far worse with this govt but it was still in place under the last Labour govt. It is time we and the unions forced Labour to support all of us, claiments or not!

    Just like all those labour MPs with a conscience should leave the current labour party – the unions should withdraw ther funding of labour – otherwise there will be no change in labour’s abhorence of ordinary people
