Turns out though, that it is just classic Tory bollocks — both funny and very worrying at the same time — here’s what they actually mean by this:
The British public deserves to have confidence in our democracy. We will legislate to ensure that a form of identification must be presented before voting, to reform postal voting and to improve other aspects of the elections process to ensure that our elections are the most secure in the world. We will retain the traditional method of voting by pencil and paper, and tackle every aspect of electoral fraud
They want to introduce voter ID — something which could lock out people who don’t have a passport or driving License (depending on how it is legislated.)
Also, the pencil thing has always seemed a bit dodgy to me (advice: take a pen, a big fucking fat marker pen with you.)
As with much of the Tory manifesto, it is intensely vague — but one thing is for sure, voter ID IS NOT the biggest problem when it comes to election fraud in this country.
Funny how the Tories have chosen this (frankly absurd) means of tackling election fraud as opposed to…I don’t know…..enforcing the rules we already have on campaign spending, and investigating the other serious allegation of election fraud they are accused of.
Much like Torie’s election fraud itself, this part of the manifesto has gone all but unnoticed so far by the mainstream media.
Well, now you know….Laugh or cry? I fucking don’t know anymore.
Clarification: thank you to Florence who pointed out that the Conservative’s were fined regarding by-elections in 2014 and that this a separate matter to the recent dropping of criminal prosecutions relating to the general election in 2015 “the Tory battle bus” scandal.
The original post failed to make this distinction — I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
ASHOCKING AND DAMMING video has emerged proving collusion between the Russian Prime Minster Vladimir Putin and the President of the United States of America Donald Trump.
There have been numerous allegations of collusion dating back to the election of Trump as US President (7 months ago) — after he beat Hillary Clinton in a shock victory to the job of “most powerful person in the universe.”
Putin and Trump are accused of colluding to bring down western democracy and values, by getting Trump elected.
Accusations that have so far been flimsy and silly — well, not anymore.
This damning video PROVES that TRUMP is not only colluding with PUTIN — but may well be in love with him as well.
The shocking footage SHOWS Putin singing to a bedazzled Trump as if he has the US President under some sort of communist spell.
The footage was taken at an event hosted by Russian scum in January 2016 and was attended by an array of D-list Hollywood celebs.
Again proving that the Russian collusion goes much deeper than anybody with a brain cell would think. Even washed up celebrities have been brainwashed by the Russian filth.
Trump is likely to be impeached now that this DAMNING evidence has been released to the public and US legal authorities.
Putin, Trump, and other COMMIE RUSSIAN SCUM have so far declined to comment on the footage.
Trump could never beat my record for killing innocent brown people in the Middle-East (or in America) — this footage proves that he needs to go.
Former Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton said:
THIS is ALL about ME — DIVERSITY! BREAK DOWN THE BARRIERS! Stronger Together!
This proves that mysogyny is the reason I lost to the only person in America more unpopular than me!
Mrs. Clinton was paid around $100,000 for her comments which were sponsored by US investment banking giant JP Morgan Chase & Co.
***UPDATE*** SINCE THIS STORY BROKE TRUMP IS SAID TO BE ON THE RUN. US LEGAL AUTHORITIES ARE WARNING CITIZENS NOT TO APPROACH STRAY TRUMP SHOULD THEY SPOT HIM & ARE ADVISING PEOPLE TO CALL THIER NEAREST SEX OFFENDER’S UNIT AND/OR ZOO TO ARRANGE CAPTURE.
Since posting this article a couple of hours ago it has come to my attention that the mainstream media has heavily edited the confrontation between the disabled woman and Theresa May.
This is the perfect illustration of how the media frames the Tory narrative and ignores the issues that people genuinely care about — the Tory trail of destruction.
Here is the Channel 5 News report on the confrontation.
And here is the full confrontation — unedited.
As you can see they breeze past the issues raised by the disabled woman — the VERY REAL SUFFERING and distress. And immediately move on what the Tories want to talk about. They also focus on May’s response, which contains yet more of her lies — SHE IS NOT HELPING DISABLED PEOPLE!
May’s latest policy proposals and her claim to be launching the “biggest ever enhancement of worker’s rights by a Conservative government” is, of course, laughable.
May’s statement includes a proposal to allow people to request time off to care for a relative — does this mean they’ll be paid for it? Probably not, but who cares about details like that (you know the ones that matter).
It also includes the much talked about — but never materialised— worker representation on company boardrooms. This proposal was touted by May at the Conservative’s conference in October 2016 — it was dropped and forgotten by her just a month later (yet another lie from May, her latest limp wristed attempt at this policy, will, no doubt, also be quietly dropped).
The segment them moves on to talk about Corbyn and May infringing on his policy territory.
Almost all of this report is based around the Tory narrative. The disabled woman should’ve been interviewed by the Channel 5 — and they should’ve found out what drove her to confront May.
They also should have included all of the confrontation — and explained as I’ve done in the last article — the damage that the Tories are inflicting on, in particular, the disabled — especially those with mental health illness.
This perfectly illustrates how the Tories get away with what they do — that Channel 5 — the home of the “benefit scrounging scum” narrative should edit this reality out of their news content is no surprise.
Anybody who seriously believes that TV coverage is unbiased in this election (as it is supposed to be) then I’d like you to seriously consider all of the points above.
Reality is airbrushed out of news on a daily basis. This is how your propaganda system works people — learn about it — challenge it — and destroy it.
Theresa May has finally been confronted by an ACTUAL disabled person — a woman who has been directly impacted by brutal Tory austerity cuts — during one of May’s rare ventures into public as she continued her election “campaign” in Abingdon-on-Thames today.
The woman who said she suffers from mental illness and learning disabilities confronted a startled May, saying:
Are you going to help people with learning disabilities and mental health? Because, I stick up for the mental health AND for the learning disability
She then said that they “chucked me out of the Mind” (referring to the mental health charity).
The woman pleaded with May:
I want my Disability Living Allowance to come back — not have PIPs and get nothing
I can’t live on a £100 a month — they took it all away from me
As May tried to deflect — the woman stood her ground. She continued saying:
The fat cats keep the money — and us lot get nothing!
She continued to plead with the PM:
who’s going to help me?
May tried to deflect away from the broader issues. May responded:
I’m sure…we’ll find a way — what you’re talking about — for YOUR case..
Before being shut down by the woman who said:
No! For everybody! Not just for me! I’m sticking up for them, because I go to a club for disabled people…I’m sticking up.
WATCH FULL CLIP: This is an unedited version of the clip. The mainstream media has shown varous versions all of which contains edits.
May showed that she is completely unable to handle the situation — or provide the woman with any actual help, or help for the disabled community whom the woman was bravely representing.
May responded by spouting about helping disabled people — and how she wants to: “focus on those who are most in need”.
The woman finished by saying:
I’m vulnerable to everything (so I been told) and I don’t get nothing — so you better help me — please!
The woman then walked off saying:
May was left looking flustered and bemused — her usual reaction when confronted by a member of the public.
She was also confronted by a man during the same visit who grilled her on the Tories appalling record of house building and ownership.
This is precisely why May generally does her best to stay away from the public — because whenever members of the public speak to her — they simply aren’t buying her shit — and they aren’t very impressed by May’s much touted “record”.
The disabled woman spoke — not as an isolated person — for whom the system had gone wrong. But as somebody who wanted to represent the very real chaos, destruction and misery inflicted on the disabled by May and the Tories.
Meaning that they can be — essentially left — without anything to live off for up to a year, whilst suffering (often ) severe disabilities.
Further to this nearly half of disabled people subjected to “planned reviews” of PIP have their existing award cut, or removed completely according to figures obtained by the Disability News Service (DNS).
Meaning that around 160,000 disabled people are simply punished by the government for having a mental illness. The Tories said that the higher rate of PIP was never intended to be extended to certain mental illnesses, yet the courts disagreed with them, finding in favor of disabled people with mental illness.
Further to this, of course, is the fact that hundreds of disabled people have killed themselves because of the DWP’s brutal (and frankly insane) decisions since the Tories came into power in 2010. Furthermore, we know of at least 2,000 cases where people have died shortly after being declared fit for work by the DWP (the numbers for both, could be much higher — the government is intensely secretive about all of this.)
The brutal Tory assault on the disabled has all happened under the guise of austerity — saving money — the fact that it hasn’t saved money – it has probably cost more, and in the process caused so much fear and misery should be enough to abandon this madness. This cruelty.
The woman who confronted May today shows us exactly who the Tories are — behind the facade of “helping” the “right” people. May’s recent pledge to help those suffering from mental illness being illustrated for what it really is: farce.
When the Tories — when May — is confronted by one of their victims they have nothing to say — nothing to offer — and simply don’t care.
Well done to the woman today — I personally thank you for your bravery – and for standing up against the Tory scum.
No doubt, May will increasingly be confined to her safe space — so as to avoid these kinds of reality checks that break her carefully crafted and stage managed persona.
Most popular politician in the country?
NO — she – and her Tory pals are some of the most HATED people in the country. And almost everytime May meets the public they tell her why. And May shows that she couldn’t care less about them, us, or anything other than her rich pals.
Yesterday (9 May 2017) on BBC One snooze-athon The One (brain cell) Show our fearless leader Theresa May finally spoke — addressing her adoring populous (the BBC One Show Producers and Hosts) — alongside a man who she claimed was her husband.
May’s appearance was a sad and desperate attempt by her to appear as if she’s an ACTUAL HUMAN BEING.
Of course, the appearance was designed to appeal to middle-aged/middle-England and her raving fanbase of elderly people and Daily Mail fundamentalists — you know — people who CAN ACTUALLY bare to sit through the mind-numbing blandness of the One Show without shooting themselves in the head, or reaching for the “Osborne Special” — gram of extra strong cocaine — just to get through the experience.
Sitting next to her was her husband — a man. Watching the happy couple pretend to be in love was certainly a sight for sore eyes — especially for me as I was sticking forks into mine just to stay awake.
May has generally kept away from the public — for good reason — she has the Hillary Clinton factor (the more people hear, see, or know about her the less they like her.)
This is precisely why she refuses to talk to the public — apart from a select “lucky” few at carefully, stage-managed events.
May is about as likable as smallpox — if it was a choice between the two at the ballot box — it would still be a rough decision.
All she can offer is “strong and stable” a phrase which normally would only be used to describe an antique wooden table. And yet still the table would be preferable, as at least it really is “strong and stable”, making it about a gazillion times more truthful than the notorious bare-faced liar known as May.
In between this extended fluff-piece (fluffers being extras that give blowjobs between takes to porn stars to keep them going), we were treated to an enlightened segment about the peril of “fake news”.
The BBC has decided that fake news is a huge problem — especially with young people. Although, no real evidence could be provided for this claim — as usual the BBC — took it upon themselves to teach the gullible children how to spot fake news.
Turns out the answer according to the BBC was to trust the establishment media, ie: The BBC.
It is in the spirit that I would like to present my own definitive guide to spotting fake news (one of the biggest threats of our time.)
Choose an article (don’t worry it doesn’t matter which one).
Read it carefully.
CONGRATUALTIONS! You’ve now become an expert at spotting fake news!
Whether they be lying about WMD’s in Iraq and sending us into never-ending wars that cause the deaths 100,000’s of innocent people or making up stories about how everyone HATES Jeremy Corbyn or lying about Labour’s financial policy through their corporately funded spokesperson from the IFS — the BBC is the primary place to get your full dose of fake news (even better than this you’re forced to pay for this shit!)
In fact, it would be more surprising to read something actually truthful on the BBC.
You know, with ALL the relevant facts. Not just some that help supports the case they are trying to make — with a tiny amount of counter fact and opinion to give it the illusion of not being bias. But ALL THE FACTS.
A study after the election by Stanford University showed that fake news is unlikely to have been the reason for Trump’s election.
Yet, the mainstream media cannot seem to make up its mind about this: on the one hand we have commentariats like Owen Jones saying that social media alone is not enough to get Corbyn elected. Then we have the BBC claiming that fake news (mainly spread through social media) is the reason Trump got elected.
Surely then, internet news cannot be both powerful enough to get the president of the US elected, and also so useless that it isn’t enough to get Corbyn elected?
My head hurts from this insane “logic”.
The BBC should actually be embarrassed by the fact that they leave so much information out of the “news” they broadcast — yet, they aren’t and won’t ever be.
The fact this segment was nestled nicely into the May’s “interview” makes it all the more ironic.
The Tories endless lies — calling Corbyn a “national security threat” and “terrorist sympathizer” and all the other stupid fake news shite they come out with — parroted, endlessly, gleefully in the echo chamber of the BBC and MSM.
Yes, the irony is painful.
The One Show — The Tories — The BBC — all the same thing in the end: propaganda.
Can’t wait until they have Corbyn on.
Now, Jeremy why do you hate the country, our freedoms, and national security so much?
We hear that you have plans to make every single child in the country read Marx’s communist manifesto 8 times EVERY SINGLE day — in the completely impossible event of you (ahahahahahahahahah!) winning on June 8 *sniggers* and beating the most POPULAR BELOVED POLITICIAN on the face of our planet! And her wonderful, caring, loving, husband.
Was it your love for the IRA’s well-known terrorist praiser Gerry Adams that inspired you to grow your Osama bin Laden like beard?
There you have it kids: how to REALLY spot fake news…..
