    Kudos for getting this, Mike! Unfortunately, everything Mills says and which Dave Kendall has metaphorically picture with the illustration is exactly right. As for the MSM, they’ll just carry on as normal as if they had absolutely no case to answer for their failure to report this. This should cause even more scepticism about the value of the MSM and their trustworthiness as a conduit for reliable, accurate news. For many, it will, but I doubt that it will ruffle the increasingly cosy relationship between a compliant, complicit press and broadcasting and the corridors of power.

    reminds me of that famous Pink Floyd lyric:

    Rolf has flown across the ocean
    Leaving just a memory
    Snapshot in the paedo album
    Jimmy what else did you leave for me?
    Cyril, what’d ya leave behind for me?!?
    All in all it was just the imperial hotel
    All in all it was all just the imperial hotel.

    “You! Yes, you! Stand still laddy!

    We don’t need no overt seduction
    We dont need no thought control
    No dark sarcasm in the lobby
    MP’s leave them kids alone
    Hey! Celebs! Leave them kids alone!
    All in all it was just the imperial hotel
    All in all it was all just the imperial hotel.

    We don’t need no overt seduction
    We dont need no thought control
    No dark sarcasm in hotel bedrooms
    Celebs leave them kids alone
    Hey! MP’s! Leave them kids alone!
    All in all it was just the imperial hotel
    All in all it was all just the imperial hotel.

    “Wrong, Do it again!”
    “If you don’t eat my meat, you can’t have any pudding. How can you
    have any pudding if you don’t let me eat yer meat?”
    “You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!”

    [Sound of many TV’s coming on, all on different channels]
    “The Bulls are already out there”
    Pink: “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrgh!”
    “This Roman Meal bakery thought you’d like to know.”

    I don’t need no arms around me
    And I dont need no drugs to calm me.
    I have seen the writing on the wall.
    Don’t think I need anything at all.
    No! Don’t think I’ll need anything at all.
    All in all it was just the imperial hotel
    All in all it was all just the imperial hotel.

    When are the government going to get their heads from up there bottoms and start to create these jobs that IDS says that are out there for disabled people. because it is a myth that there are loads of jobs because they are already taken even before they enter into the press, we as disabled people seem to just get the cleaning or demeaning jobs that have very low prospects. So where or when are we going to be considered as a group of people that would like better or continuity of employment. Because the Jobcentres or advisors don’t take into account about your disability as they are target led. So we have had our benefits changed and classified everyone as a fit note not a sick note, and will not do enough to make adjustments because the public and private sector are only interested in making targets their priority and that it could cost the department money, so are reluctant to take you on for these reasons and the government’s austerity program is affecting the lowest or most vulnerable in society. What is the government really going to do because so far they have meddled in benefits without consulting the people that it is going to affect, as they assume we are able to do jobs in the same way as people who don’t even have any form of disabilities, so we seem to be up against these unrealistic judgements that the government and Atos who still think that everyone is the same not taking the disability into consideration which sets us up to fail so I cannot see why they don’t support those that want to work rather than just ticking the boxes.
