“Stop naming us” say MPs who voted for disability benefit cuts

disability benefits

Conservative MPs who voted for £30 a week cuts in benefits for disabled people have asked today for people to stop naming them on social media so they can continue to claim huge expenses and lie about giving a shit.

London Mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith angrily hit back that there were any conflicts of interest in his patronage of a disability charity. “What’s £30 anyway? I claim that for my pre-dinner drinks on a week-night. But putting it on twitter makes it look like a lot. It’s completely unfair and unrepresentative. People need to stop noticing these things.”

Indeed the sentiment has been echoed throughout the country amongst MPs made to feel mean by people noticing that they voted to effectively withdraw support from some of the most vulnerable people in society.

Nick Boles MP who claimed over £140,000 in expenses last year said that he was shocked, outraged and appalled that his name had been plastered over Facebook.

“Facebook should be ashamed of themselves. What about that tax deal we did for them? I’m off to voice my indignation to other like minded people over an evening of publicly funded champagne and canapés.”

Portsmouth South MP, Flick Drummond, said “I care deeply. When I was out having dinner in a Michelin starred restaurant recently, on parliamentary business and subsequently claiming the whole thing on expenses, I considered the plight of disabled people and one solitary tear rolled down my cheek, at least metaphorically. I had to ask the waiter to wipe it from my cheek with a gold embossed napkin. Then I came up with a snide comment about them probably causing the 2007 credit crunch through their laziness, threw my head back and laughed like a horse. But that’s no reason to put my picture on Facebook along with facts about my voting habits.

‘Kill the Housing Bill!’ Tenants protest Tory attacks on social housing

Thousands will protest the Tory government’s Housing and Planning Bill on Sunday. Far from solving the UK’s housing crisis, activists say the legislation will deepen inequality and division within society.

Britain’s housing crisis has been caused by a lack of affordable homes. In December 2015 London house prices rose by 9.4 percent to £536,000, according to the Office for National Statistics.

“Average house prices are now 12 times average London pay… It effectively puts home ownership out of reach for a majority of ordinary Londoners,” cross-bench peer Lord Kerslake told reporters this week.

The Conservative government’s Housing Bill aims to promote “starter homes” by selling properties at a 20 percent discount, as well as introducing a “pay to stay” scheme, which will attempt to cut off subsidies for some council tenants.

However, local authorities across England think the plan will force families out onto the street. Single parent Debra L’Esteve and her 11-year-old daughter live in accommodations owned by Camden Council. Speaking to RT, she said that under the new ‘pay to stay’ provisions, their rent would become “almost four times more expensive.”

Suffering from a disability, Clapham resident Trace Newton, 56, is “terrified” for her future.

“As a disabled person, the possibility of not having secure housing within a stable, supportive community terrifies me. Insecure housing causes suffering on so many levels. It is inevitable the Housing Bill will have serious consequences for the whole of UK society, in particular the most vulnerable residents,” she told RT.

Another Camden council tenant, Sarah Quigley, said: “I live in a one bedroom council flat with my partner and two young daughters, and I am a carer for my disabled mother, who lives nearby.”

“If the Housing Bill is passed there is no way we will be able to get the two-bed council flat that we need, and it will mean that I can no longer afford to live in Camden, or even London, where I have lived all my life,” Quigley added.

Also opposing the bill, council tenant Steve Hack called the measured an “injustice” and “an attack on the very poorest by the very richest.”

Kill the Housing Bill campaigners will protest against the legislation on Sunday.

“The Housing Bill is supposedly designed to solve the housing crisis. But in fact it’s not only going to make the housing crisis much worse but it’s also going to increase inequality and division within society. In many places in the UK, especially in London, the ability to access the house – the basic human right of having a house – is becoming increasingly out of grasp for a large proportion of the population,” a spokesperson for the campaign told RT.
