In the wake of “Labour Purge 2,” it’s easy to become despondent.
Here are 10 reasons to be hopeful:
- Labour HQ looks incompetent. Labour’s NEC made history, taking steps unprecedented in British politics. Backed by General Secretary, Iain McNicol, Labour has culled over a third of its members. Purging the head of the Bakers union (BFAWU) led John McDonnell to demand the protection of members from a “rigged purge.” Presented with little to no evidence of their suspensions, members have received letters outlining vague justifications, such as “sharing inappropriate content” on social media.
- Iain McNicol will resign. The systematic abuse of members and supporters is a final “Hoorah” from the General Secretary and his outgoing team. The NEC will soon have five new representatives; promising to protect and serve Party members. McNicol cannot survive this.
- A purge won’t happen again. Labour can look forward to a future where Party members and supporters…

Oops – #traingate
They say when you point a finger to accuse, you’ve got three pointing back at yourself. Virgin’s attempt to attack Jeremy Corbyn’s integrity is casting the company in an extremely bad light.
Virgin promises only to use CCTV footage of its passengers as follows:
Let’s look at each of those bullet points to see whether they apply:
- prevent, deter and detect crime Nope, no crime was being committed
- apprehend and prosecute offenders, and provide evidence to take civil action in the courts Again, Nope, no crime, no courts, just running to the media
- help provide…

Nick Barker – RIP
Former sheep farmer, Nick had a brain haemorrhage which left him struggling to walk. The father of two shot himself after the DWP claimed he was fit to work. Recording a suicide verdict, coroner Michael Oakley said the benefits assessment was key to the tragedy.

Robert worked as a Government scientist but gave it up when diagnosed with severe cardiomypathy. The DWP deemed him fit to work. He died penniless under 2 years later.

A number of coroners have come out and stated the DWP played a role in the death of their clients. The DWP have the cheek to say the coroners are wrong – who are you more likely to believe – the professionals whose job it is to investigate deaths or a Government department with its own agenda?
Coroner Michael Oakley said the DWP benefits assessment was key to the death of Nick Barker. Coroner Andrew Haigh concluded the death of Tim Salter was mostly caused by the DWP who drastically reduced his benefit.
Meanwhile these people died under questionable circumstances with the DWP. Cecilia Burns had cancer. The DWP declared her fit for work. She appealed the decision but died shortly after winning her appeal. Chris Cann was housebound after losing both legs and a finger. The DWP insisted he exited his home to attend a fit…

Many times the Government has denied this is happening and continue to do so, yet the real truth has been written by many Bloggers whom attacked the record of the two successive governments the last 6years by campaigners within the disability movement. Campaigners have tried many times to have their voices heard, out on the streets and on social media they have taken direct action and shouted from the rooftops, some have been threatened to have websites taken down because they tried to highlight what is happening to disabled people across UK and globally around the world. Our rights are being denied and subsequently crushed little by little. With the Brexit vote opening the door to remove the last bastion of decency ‘The Human Rights Act’, leaving us all at the mercy of what can only be called a dictatorship of government, with…
