A scene from Alan Bleasdale’s perceptive GBH, a much misunderstood, darkly comedic series from 1991. Some felt that Bleasdale was attempting to discredit the militant left, but what he portrayed is an infiltation of the Labour Party by MI5, ordered by the Conservative government at the time, whose aim was to recruit, manipulate and indoctrinate local “young bulls” with quasi left-wing ideology to have them assist, unknowingly, in destablising and discrediting the Labour Party in its entirety.
Fueling social tensions, MI5 agents provocateurs were prepared to use the ethnic communities to foster social division, in the hope of causing riots and ultimately, the hardened right-wing thugs (MI5 were eventually revealed as the real thugs here) dismissed the minority groups as collateral damage, a callous, calculated move that was deemed necessary to destroy the Labour Party.
MI5 staged a series of violent racist assaults on the city’s ethnic minorities, using hired…

Now that it’s known that simply saying “I didn’t mean to” will shield one from criminal charges of fraud, I think we have a game-changer. Jesse Eisinger reports for ProPubli…
Super-rich international investors in London property are likely to sell off some of their mansions and penthouses after the introduction of anti-corruption rules cracking down on offshore secrecy, a leading estate agent has said.
Privacy-hungry oligarchs, media owners and tech billionaires from around the world could also abandon plans to buy homes in Britain because they would no longer be able to keep their identity secret by purchasing them through offshore companies, Trevor Abrahamson told the Guardian.
The owner of Glentree Estates, which has sold property to billionaires from Russia, Nigeria and China, said the obligation for any foreign company buying UK property to join a public register of beneficial ownership would drive wealth creators away. It would also prevent corrupt individuals using the London property market to hide ill-gotten gains in offshore companies located in places such as the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands. He said about half…

A letter a day to number 10. No 1,446
Friday 27 May 2016.
Dear Mr Cameron,
Despite a modest rise in tax receipts the future is still far from rosy under George Osborne’s long term economic plan which is long on long and short on results, having borrowed more than all Labour governments put together and doubling the nations debt.
Odd though, don’t you think, that he can somehow find £93 billion support for businesses yet there is no money to support low paid workers, disabled people, our NHS, frontline services and so on.
The entire bill for the NHS for 2015/16 was £116.4 billion. The NHS is Britain biggest employer looking after the health of an entire nation 24/7, yet it is falling apart for want of funding.
Corporate welfare does not compare to NHS core funding, nor does it compare in terms of national responsibility. Osborne is making…

The move, dubbed “yet another signpost to Superstate”, followed the decision by the EU Parliament’s economic affairs committee to rubber stamp a plan by Commissioners to create a “common corporate consolidated tax base”.
In the biggest threat to sovereignty, the plan also calls for the EU to take over member states’ corporate taxation powers with a common corporation tax base, banning sovereign states from increasing their competitiveness by cutting corporation tax below 15 per cent.
Speaking last night Steven Woolfe MEP, UKIP’s financial affairs spokesman who sits on the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, said: “After months of keeping their Superstate ambitions under wraps, the mask has finally slipped.
“These plans demonstrate the risks of remaining in a club which has grand plans to supersede nation states and create a United States of Europe with a fully-fledged continental wide tax system.
“If we stay in the…

You’re on your own if a conman raids your bank account: As a fraud epidemic sweeps Britain, just two in 1,000 cases are ever investigated.
Victims of cruel bank scams are being left thousands of pounds out of pocket because the authorities won’t help them.
A Money Mail investigation found banks routinely fob off customers who have been duped by fraudsters into emptying their accounts.
More than seven in ten victims are being told it’s their fault after falling for sophisticated confidence tricks. Others are being blamed for giving passwords to devious conmen or using out-of-date antivirus software on their computers.
Instead of offering refunds, banks are telling the victims to contact Action Fraud, the national, Home Office-funded cyber-crime reporting centre.
But we can reveal that eight in ten fraud cases sent to Action Fraud, run by the City of London Police, are binned. Its call centre, with just 72…

I received my latest ESA50 in the post yesterday. It’s about my seventh or eighth Work Capability Assessment and I know how it will work because the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) do the same thing every time. Here’s how I recorded it’s impact on me last time around:
Every time, it’s the same. I don’t ‘score’ in their points system. Why? Because the narrative of their system has no room for people like me. I don’t exist so it fails to recognise me ~ nil points. Every single time. And every single time I’ve taken my case to tribunal level, the judicial decision was to exempt me from having to score points. That was when it was possible for someone like me to get to a tribunal ~ the Tories have…
