Racist morons bombard Saka, Rashford and Sancho with ‘abhorrent’ abuse after trio missed penalties | Daily Mail Online


Racism, yet again, Racism should have no platform in the UK, but it does and here the blame is not only on the racists, but the Platform providers Facebook, Twitter, etc, who by their apparent refusal to take these abusive down as soon as they appear, are, effectively as guilty as the racists who post these comments.

Not only should the racists be prosecuted, but also the platform providers, for only then will this racism end.

There has to be ‘ZERO tolerism‘ with regards to racism.

Why Does Social Media Deem It Acceptable to Allow Racial Abuse to Black Footballers? | Community | News


No form of abuse is acceptable no matter what circumstances are involved.

With Social Media they do have the resources to eliminate the abuse though their platforms, but they appear unwilling to do so.

The legislation promised in the Queen’s Speech could well alleviate that to some or all extent.  However, these platforms are owned my multi-billionaires and so their resources to fight or reduce the effects of any such legislation are enormous, but that should not stop the legislation coming into force and if it needs to be amended to make it more enforceable then so be it.

Black footballers could come off Social Media but why should they, why is it the innocent who have to act, rather than the perpetrators being punished, it is because it is easier for this to occur, but it is a major limitation of freedoms. Just because something is difficult should not be an excuse to not proceed, as by not proceeding this is as bad as the initial racial abuse and is in effect condoning but inaction or insufficient action. If the was put into every legislation, that inaction or insufficient action was illegal then more would be done by all concerned.

Katie Price is right. Disabled people shouldn’t be forced off the internet by abuse | Gaby Hinsliff | Opinion | The Guardian


What sort of person repeatedly picks on a disabled child in the most vicious and cruel of terms?

The answer, of course, is the sort of people the model Katie Price had in mindwhen she started campaigning for online abuse to become a specific criminal offence. Price’s 15-year-old son Harvey – who is blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome – has been hideously mocked and taunted. His mother quickly gathered more than 220,000 supportive signatures for a petition demanding online abuse be treated as a hate crime, and now the parliamentary petitions committee has accepted her argument that the law isn’t fit for purpose – or to be precise a part of that argument. (Price’s petition referred not just to disability but to homophobia, racism and even body-shaming of women; the MPs were careful to single out disability alone, arguing in their report that they didn’t want to cut across the work of others on the rest.)

DWP Took Photos From Disabled Employee’s Facebook


This shows, if further evidence was required, what the DWP is like and if they do this to ,one of their own, then what can be said for the rest of us.

This just shows that what has been occurring over the last few years is no mistake, it is the total agenda of the DWP.

What can they do,

  1. well if it was up to me the DWP manager Bev Lovatt would be severely reprimanded with a view to a capability assessment being undertaken
  2. the whole practices of the DWP would be minutely investigated by an independent non-government source

  3. the Government needs to suspend all assessments and new claimants processed on the previous benefit processes

  4. sanctions to be immediately removed and no further sanctions implemented

  5. Atos and Capita to have their contracts suspended and their methods of engagement investigated

  6. any claimants being in the process of being transferred to ESA, PIP or UC to have their processes suspended and immediately re-instated to their previous benefits

  7. awards of compensation to claimants for their suffering and any other problems or to their families where the claimants are now deceased to be implemented

Only then will there be justice for all the claimants and their families for the problems caused by the inhuman policies of the DWP.

Same Difference

A disabled DWP employee has won a £26,000 payout after his bosses called him a “whinger” and gave him a warning after he ‘nearly died’ at work.

An employment tribunal awarded compensation after finding Barrie Caulcutt had been treated unfairly by his bosses at the Department for Work and Pensions.

The 55-year-old, of Caernarfon, North Wales, cried at the hearing, saying his life and health were ruined by bosses who said he didn’t deserve to be treated nicely.

The father-of-two, who suffers from anxiety, chronic asthma and eczema, had to be rushed to hospital after he suffered an asthma attack at work, the Daily Post reports.

He said felt “relieved and pleased” after the tribunal unanimously found the DWP had discriminated against him by failing to make reasonable adjustments for his disability.

Mr Caulcutt had worked for the DWP for 35 years with an “exemplary” attendance record.

Problems started after…

The poor side of life

Today’s demo started rather hurriedly and to be honest I didn’t know if I was coming or going. This feeling was amplified because it was cold, rainy and my daughter was a bit fed up. understandable of course. But she soon settled down into our usual routine and all was well.

We are seeing a lot of new faces due to Stalybridge Jobcentre shutting. They don’t know us and what we are doing, and we don’t know them or their situations either. So we have to start from scratch, which at times isn’t easy.  But it’s a whole lot harder for them.

I started a conversation with a man who had been previously attending Stalybridge Jobcentre for his appointments. The first thing that he said to me was that he couldn’t believe how rude the front desk staff are at  Ashton Jobcentre, and how rude some of the advisors are also…

Urgent: change your FB settings now if you want to see your favourite Left sites


SKWAWKBOX

Mike at the excellent Vox Political site has spotted a change to Facebook’s processes that means, whether by design or accident, that Facebook users are far less likely to see posts by their favourite independent, left-wing news outlets – unless they make a change to the settings that control their feeds.

Mike writes:

vox.pngNormally the SKWAWKBOX stats show a ratio of around four or five visitors via Facebook for every one via Twitter. Over the last few days that has dropped to around one and a half Facebook referrals to every Twitter visitor. Mike appears to have uncovered the reason why.

So, as a matter of urgency – both so you don’t miss your favourite articles and to make sure your favourite independent left-wing sites are supported as they need to be:

Go to the main Facebook page of each of your favourite outlets and change those settings…
