The News The BBC Does Not Want To Report

The News The BBC Does Not Want To Report.

 

The News The BBC Does Not Want To ReportThe news the BBC does not want to report happened on the 16th of March 2016 when over 7000 junior Doctors demonstrated outside whitehall, London.

You can look if you want but you cant find any referrence to this gathering shows the BBC are so up the Governments rear end its getting scary.

When they interview ministers they never give them a hard time, Steal is a hot topic and what does the BBC report, oh its Europes fault, our utility bills are to high or even cheap steal from Asia but never the Government even russian state TV has less bias towards its leaders its getting to the point of the BBC News team not being fit-for-purpose!

UPDATE; Last weekend over 50,000 marched through London demonstrating against Austerity Cuts but hardly any media outlet reported it, we ask why not?

We are been force fed rubbish and media can not be trusted anymore to report what is really going on on the streets of the UK.

 

 

Should Bouncy Castles Be Banned?

Should Bouncy Castles Be Banned?

 

Should bouncy castles be banned, given all the injuries and the recent UK child death we think they should.

 

UK wide calls for an all-out ban on bouncy castle use should be issued as soon as possible thousands of children are injured in the UK every year, yes its great fun but is it worth the huge risk factors envolved, not in this blogs humble opinion.

UK Government Bouncy Castle regulations.

Government statistics indicate that every year there are a large number of accidents resulting in injuries to children arising from the use of inflatable bouncy castles within the UK.

Most of the injuries are caused by children bouncing off the inflatable on to the ground, being hit by other children or just falling awkwardly. Many of these accidents could be avoided by effective adult supervision.

Follow our advice if you are thinking of hiring inflatable bouncy castles as part of a fundraising event, a fete or a private function, such as a birthday party.

Before hiring

The equipment should be hired from reputable hire companies, and wherever possible, set up, operated and supervised by the hire company’s own staff. This is particularly important if substantial numbers of children are likely to be present.

Before hiring a bouncy castle, ensure that the hire company:

  • Fully complies with the safe use and operation of play inflatables, including bouncy castles guidance issued by the PIPA Inflatable Play Inspector Scheme. This guidance can be downloaded from www.pipa.org.uk
  • Employees are suitably experienced and well trained adult personnel, where the company is responsible for the setting up, operation and supervision of the bouncy castle
  • Provides evidence of a current Public Liability insurance policy with a limit of indemnity of at least £2 million. This insurance is to cover the liability of the hire company. It is unlikely to extend to cover the hirer of the equipment.

Self operation

If you are to operate the bouncy castle, ensure that you are provided with written instructions about the safe setting up, operation and supervision of the equipment, and that the name and address of the manufacturer or supplier is clearly marked upon it.

Safety instructions

The safety instructions should include the following points:

  • Children should not be allowed to use the bouncy castle if there is a high wind or in wet weather (inflatables can flip over, and slippery surfaces may cause injury)
  • The castle must be adequately secured to the ground and sited away from obstacles such as fences or overhead power lines
  • Soft matting covering hard surfaces must be placed adjacent to the front or open sides
  • Ensure that the blower is situated at least 1-2 metres from the inflatable – serious injuries may occur if a user strikes the blower unit
  • There should be responsible adult supervision, paying close attention to the children at play at all times during its use
  • The number of children using the bouncy castle must be limited to the number

    recommended in the hire company’s safety instructions. There must be no overcrowding

  • A rota system for different age or size groups should be operated, together with the observance of an age limit of users
  • All children must be made to remove footwear, hard or sharp objects such as jewellery, buckles, pens and other similar pocket contents. Eating while bouncing or performing acrobatics must not be allowed.

 

Stephen Crabb DWP

Stephen Crabb DWP

Stephen Crabb, the new secretary of state for work and pensions has already proved himself clueless about how employment and support allowance (ESA) works.

Last week, before Crabb replaced IDS at the DWP, his constituency office was graffitied with the words ‘Why do you hate the sick’ after he voted in favour of cuts to ESA.

In a Facebook post responding to the vandalism, Crabb wrote:

“Any disabled person who is unable to work due to ill health or disability is in the Support Group of ESA. They are wholly unaffected by the change, as only those who are fit to work and actively seeking work are included in the Work Related Activity Group.”

The reality, as most Benefits and Work readers could have told Crabb, is that claimants in the work-related activity group (WRAG) have been found to have limited capability for work. If they had been found “fit to work” they would have been refused ESA entirely and have been forced to apply for JSA.

Limited capability for work means that the claimant may be able to undertake some limited training or work and may one day be able to take up full- time work.

But in many cases WRAG claimants will have degenerative conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, and they will never be fit for work again. It’s just that their condition is not yet severe enough to meet the strict criteria for the support group.

The fact that Crabb happily voted for cuts on the basis of his profound ignorance of how ESA actually works is concerning enough.

That he is now in charge of the entire benefits system is terrifying.

He will be judged by his actions just like IDS before him, just because they dont vote for their party or any party that might change next time around.

His background check by others says hes a scammer by all the things hes done with second homes and the likes although his body lingo says he knows hes untouchable so he should prove hes leadership material and do the unthinkable, actually look after the sick and disabled rather than more attacks on the sick and rises in foodbank usages.

Interesting point of view.

The MP employed interns in his parliamentary office through a scheme organised and funded by Christian Action Research and Education (CARE). CARE has previously sponsored events which refer to gay and bisexual people as “sexually broken” and advocating that they can become “ex-gay”. The organisation has funded internship places for young people to be placed with MPs as researchers or interns.

The above information will surely interest some of the Garthdee mafia in Aberdeen who will no-doubt shout their usual homo-phobic insults at Steve!

IDS AN UNLIKELY HERO

IDS AN UNLIKELY HERO.

Ian Duncan Smith a Scottish born super hero in the making that may have destroyed Common Purpose’s agenda of getting rid of the sick,  disabled and the poor.

Common Purpose is a charity, what did we say, yes there the only UK charity that has nothing good to say about the sick and disabled or even the poor for that matter and fully supported by the Tory Leadership of Cameron and Osbourne.

Common Purpose is desperate for the UK to remain within the EU and its now obvious IDS is not playing the game any more, which to us bloggers is a real shock as he was obsessed with the fatuous mantra ‘making work pay’ when it does already pay.

Jobseeker’s allowance is £71.70 whilst the minimum wage pays over £250 per week.

The Tories’ business is to demonize the unemployed to distract attention from their uselessness as a government.

They are trying to pretend that the jobless are the reason for the nation’s ills.

In reality – a place In Denial Smith is not acquainted with – if one million people came off jobseeker’s allowance tomorrow the saving would be £72 million a week or, as near as dammit, £1 a week for everybody in the country. It is not going to change your life or anybody else’s including his or his many CP chums.

Moreover we spend less on social security – what Smith calls welfare – as a % of GDP than any comparable European nation.

The idea that the welfare bill is out of control is the big lie of this government.

It is not out of control and IDS has just proved it by telling all of us what we have already stated for years its a political choice to attack all that cant fight back or giving a stuff for people that wont vote for us shows they are not fit to govern period!

One question the Tories have yet to graptle with is what there going to do with their ATOS and MAXIMUS PIP contracts that wont now happen?

CP are well intrenched in these companies so it looks like the Tories will still pay without a return, but unlike the plights of the sick and disabled we wont hear about it, not a peep!

Osbourne should go but then again so should Cameron and as the Tories have no likely super hero’s left in Government and full of yes men the only thing left is for England to leave the EU what IDS always wanted anyway, IDS an unlikely hero or was it a master stroke of a quiet man?

Name and Shame Scottish Social Workers.

Name and Shame Scottish Social Workers to protect other service users from abuses of the system setup to protect our children in the first place.

After completing lots of research on this subject matter it appears to be a bigger problem that I first thought and the blogspot link below has some of the worst horror stories ever, if your thinking of going down this road check out this link first!

Lots of Social Workers named along with job titles, work placements and court details including judge details.
