The DWP won’t tell anyone how many people have died after having their benefits sanctioned

The DWP won’t tell anyone how many people have died after having their benefits sanctioned

Over 90,000 people have signed a petition asking the Government to publish figures on how many people have died after having their benefits sanctioned.

The Department for Work and Pensions is refusing to publish the statistics, and is additionally withholding its internal reviews into why certain claimants died.

The DWP is currently appealing a ruling by the Government’s information watchdog saying there is no reason not to publish the figures.

The Information Commissioner said the DWP had no reason to withhold them.

Belgian Doctors Are Euthanizing Patients Without Their Consent

Belgian Doctors Are Euthanizing Patients Without Their Consent

CNSNews.com) — A study published this month in the Journal of Medical Ethics examined the “deliberate” euthanasia of patients in Belgium without their explicit, voluntary consent as required by law.

The study’s author, Raphael Cohen-Almagor, a professor of philosophy and ethics at the United Kingdom’s Hull University, found that life-ending drugs were used “with the intention to shorten life and without explicit request” in 1.7 percent of all deaths in Belgium in 2013.

In 52.7 percent of these cases, the patients were 80 years of age or older. The decision to euthanize was not discussed with the patient in 77.9 percent of the cases because he/she was comatose, had dementia, or “because discussion would have been harmful to the patient’s best interest,” according to the study.

Belgium passed the Euthanasia Act in 2002, which states that only voluntary euthanasia is legally permissible.

The amount Britain spends on welfare ‘unsustainable’ ?

Georgy Osborn (who struggles with maths) said:

Deputising for David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions for the first time,  the Chancellor revealed new Treasury figures showing that: “We have got 1 per cent of the world’s population, 4 per cent of its GDP, but we undertake 7 per cent of the world’s welfare spending.”

The Welfare Trends report from the Office for Budget Responsibility compares the UK’s benefit spending to that of other European and OECD countries.

The UK has one of the lowest levels of spending on unemployment benefits:

And it seems that if you dig a little deeper, although employment has risen – so has  in-work poverty. Where jobs don’t pay much they have to be supported by benefit payments. So, alongside the fall in the proportion of people on out of work benefits, there has been a rise in spending on tax credits and housing benefit.

The working poor now outnumber the unemployed, retired and sick put together. Not only do the in-work poor outnumber the workless, nearly half of them are in families where all the adults have jobs.

Yet MPs still talk about the “something for nothing” welfare state and the Conservative Party issues press releases saying that this is why the welfare bill is out of control?

Heartbleed-like flaw puts smartphone users’ passwords and location data at risk

Heartbleed-like flaw puts smartphone users’ passwords and location data at risk

BILLIONS OF SMARTPHONE USERS’ personal data is at risk after researchers uncovered a Heartbleed-like vulnerability in some of the “most popular” Android and iOS apps.

Researchers from Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology and Darmstadt University of Technology told Reuters about the vulnerability after discovering 56 million items of unprotected data in the applications that were studied. These included games, social networks, messaging, medical and banking apps.

The German researchers didn’t name the apps in question, but said they include some of the most popular on the Apple and Google app stores.

The flaw exposes passwords, addresses, access codes and location data, but the researchers found no evidence that the vulnerability had been exploited.

British army creates team of Facebook warriors

The 77th Brigade, to be based in Hermitage, near Newbury, in Berkshire, will be about 1,500-strong and formed of units drawn from across the army. It will formally come into being in April.

The brigade will be responsible for what is described as non-lethal warfare. Both the Israeli and US army already engage heavily in psychological operations.

Against a background of 24-hour news, smartphones and social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, the force will attempt to control the narrative.

Heinz says sorry for ketchup QR code that links to porn site

Heinz says sorry for ketchup QR code that links to porn site

Heinz has apologised to a customer after a QR code on one of its tomato ketchup bottles linked to a porn site.

After using a smartphone to scan the code, which was meant to provide information about a promotional campaign that offered personalised ketchup bottle labels, Daniel Korell was sent to a German adult site rather than a Heinz-run page.

“We really regret the incident,” a Heinz representative said on Facebook, offering to send Korell a personalised ketchup bottle as compensation.

Operation Midland – Harvey Proctor

Operation Midland – Harvey Proctor

The amazing sleuths on twitter had no problem identifying who it was and sure enough it was confirmed as Harvey Proctor

Ex-Tory MP Harvey Proctor in paedophile ring quiz

For those who put their odds on a “celebrity” – unlucky. Although there are still a number of those who will potentially be wheeled out to deflect from current and ex politicians.

However, re HP – from the above article:-

“He left the police station at 18:00hrs. He will not be subject to any police bail conditions. We are not prepared to discuss further.”

It’s worth noting what Proctor wrote on 3 May 2015 in response to allegations.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CH0NKbKWcAAPnKP.jpg

Check out some of the article – for e.g

On Wednesday 4 March 2015, the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Midland Team raided my home and, under a warrant investigating historical child sexual abuse, searched my house for 15 hours. I was told at 11pm that  no statement would be issued to the press and my identity would not come out. That was not the case.

If not before, then within eight hours of the police leaving my home, details of the raid were leaked to the national media. ExaroNews – an odd internet news agency – was tipped off before the police left my home. Mark Conrad, a journalist for the agency, was phoning and emailing my office at 9.34pm – at least 90 minutes before the police left my house.

The whole emphasis is that Proctor is blameless (according to him) – and it is the police who acted inappropriately or incorrectly.

Interesting that Exaro is placed ‘in the frame’ – they being one of the few news agencies apparently willing to devote time and resources to disclosure of child abuse.

It’s all so similar to the Cliff Richard raid – tho that was the BBC and the police’s ”fault”.

Sir Cliff Richard vows to sue the BBC and demands damages after TV news crew filmed abuse inquiry police raiding his home

The timing of all this is also noteworthy. Alison Saunders was supposed to have gestated her decision to prosecute Greville Janner and proudly exhibited her sprog to the public by now.  This historic event has now been deferred until Tuesday of next week (allegedly).

Concurrently, Charles Napier – ex treasurer of P.I.E (Paedophile Information Exchange) was also grilled by the police – for 30 minutes (that’s equivalent to a steak tartare). He’s half brother to John Whittingdale MP – of whom Natalie Rowe has tweeted and written.

I’d conjecture that the co-ordination of many high level inputs into a cover-up have possibly mistimed their actions?

That leaves another 3 to 4 days for a major distraction to be floated?
