Thread: Every newspapers headline story

    Every newspapers headline story

    Or should be.

    From the times today

    One of Britain’s largest charities, however, which supports benefit claimants, has remained surprisingly tight-lipped. Shaw Trust, which aims to help millions of people back into work, has nine headlines on its website’s news page but none mentions universal credit. On its Twitter feed, the most recent reference to the reform was a month ago. Far from being a warning, the tweet forwarded a government announcement about a new bank account that is “available to working people on universal credit and will reward them with an extra 50p for every £1 they save”.

    Why would the charity act in this way? As The Times reveals today, Shaw Trust is one of at least 22 organisations that has signed contracts with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) banning them from saying anything that could result in bad publicity for the secretary of state.

    A contract seen by The Times includes the condition that the charity “shall pay the utmost regard to the standing and reputation” of the secretary of state. The document, dated January 12, 2017, also states that the charity shall not do anything that may “attract adverse publicity” or “damage the reputation” of the work and pensions secretary. The government signed the contracts, worth more than £1.8 billion, with suppliers wanting to work on programmes to combat unemployment.
    Yet more evidence that we have an authoritarian government willing to do anything to stop the free flow of information.

    This is where your fwee speeeech types really let themselves down, they focus their disgust on a guy getting prosecuted for making his dog do a nazi salute whilst turning a blind eye to anti democratic behaviour like this from the government.

    He won't, he'd create his own swamp which we'd sink into , as his ideology drags our country into an over populated, debt ridden economy, with restricted security , and less influence in the world.

    I would say a return to grassroots politics wouldn't be such a bad thing if people want to become more involved. A centralised system always leads to the despots taking over
