They would have been from Muslim extraction, but were not true to their religion and should be punished accordingly.

NINE asylum seekers from the same family have gone on trial in the Austrian capital Vienna for the New Year’s Eve 2015 gang rape of a 28-year-old German teacher.

1.Mohamed Al-A;  2. Nazar Al-J; 3. Mohammed Al-T; 4. Alaa Al-J;  5. Hader Al-A; 6. Mustafa Al-J; 7. Nael Al-J; 8. Marwan Al-J; 9. Sabah Al-J.

Most of them deny the charges but DNA proved that sperm from six of them was found in or on her body.

  • The court heard how the victim arrived in Vienna on December 28, 2015 to spend the New Year with a female friend in the city.  Shortly before 3.00am the friend of Sabine noticed she was no longer there and was told by another patron that the men she had been talking with had “taken her away.”
  • The defendants, aged between 22 and 45, all arrived in Austris between…

This is a good idea providing the panels with have some form of authority in that their findings will be recognised and acted upon. Or will it be just another paper exercise, tick box that will be conveniently ignored.

For the Service Users are the experts and not the Ministers and their Civil Servants who are just working to a political purpose.

  • I receive regular representations from disability organisations and hon. Members regarding personal independence payments. As I have previously stated, we want to do more to create real-time feedback across the whole country. We will shortly be introducing service user panels to feed directly back from claimants on PIP and employment and support allowance.

 

  • Unfortunately, I have to tell my hon. Friend that I am still receiving complaints from constituents about the procedures regarding personal independence payments, so what is she doing to improve the process, reduce delays and support people through what is often a traumatic assessment process?

     
     
  • The goal is clearly swift, accurate and admin-lite assessments. Good progress has already been made in many areas—for example, reducing the average…

The brutal cuts which make so many lives a misery save just £132m a year while it costs £285m a year to run.

The Tories’ benefits sanctions regime costs £153million more a year to run than it saves.

A shocking official report has revealed that administering the discredited system costs taxpayers up to £285million a year.

And the brutal cuts that make life hell for struggling families
 only save around £132million.

Staggeringly, the Department for Work and Pensions do not track the cost of sanctions or use their own data to evaluate their impact.

In their scathing
report, the National Audit Office said they “cannot conclude that the
department is achieving value for money”.

Last night, opposition MPs demanded that Ministers get a grip of the sanctions system.

Labour’s Meg Hillier said: “Benefit sanctions punish some of the poorest people in the country but despite the anxiety and misery they cause, it…

Nobody should believe for a single moment that a Conservative Government will pay any attention to the advice of the experts – especially when the Work Capability Assessment (WCA) is doing precisely what it was meant to do – clearing sick and disabled people off the benefit books with no regard for their future health.

That being said, the analysis of the WCA provided by the British Psychological Society, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, the British Psychoanalytic Council, the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies and the UK Council for Psychotherapy in a joint response to the Government’s consultation, ‘Improving Lives’, is very useful information.

So here it is:

We urge the Government to reform its approach and the assessment process. We also strongly recommend that this be

“Fake News” is a very real thing. It is the publication of hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation purporting to be real news with the deliberate intent to mislead. Many fake news websites originate from Russia, Macedonia, and Romania.

What it is NOT is an editorial from a respected, established newspaper entitled “Better open records”, which supports a bill to give journalists better access to government records.

The Daily Sentinel, which is the local newspaper for Grand Junction, CO, urged moving forward with the bill and called on State Senator Ray Scott to quit delaying the bill and bring it up for a vote.  Their exact words were: “We call on our own Sen. Scott to announce a new committee hearing date and move this bill forward.”

This is how Ray Scott responded:

On Twitter, he said:
