It seems the UK’s Equalities watchdog is a racist organisation. How can we believe its report on Labour?

A common tactic among right-wingers, when a document is about to be published  or a claim made that attacks them, is to undermine the validity of the issuer of that document in some way beforehand. We’ve seen that happen many times over the last few years, haven’t we? Often the critical claims have been proved untrue later. Consider all the attacks on Jeremy Corbyn. Now, with the Equality and Human Rights Commission soon to release its report on alleged anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, that organisation is being buried under…

Here’s why equalities watchdog can’t be trusted on its Labour anti-Semitism inquiry

Every day it seems clearer that the UK’s Equality and Human Rights Commission isn’t fit for purpose. The latest revelation comes from the watchdog’s current chair, who steps down from that role this week. David Isaac says the government is “dragging its feet” rather than tackle racism. The government is run by the Conservative Party, and he’s still the head of the organisation that refused to investigation Islamophobia in that organisation, saying the Tories could be trusted to investigate themselves. Now he’s saying the Tories can’t be trusted to implement…

Floodgates open as 300+ disabled people issue court claim for Universal Credit cash

A landmark court ruling looks set to cost the Tory government a small fortune as people with disabilities line up to demand their lost cash. More than 300 people are involved in this initial claim – but solicitors Leigh Day reckon more than 13,000 could be owed lost income totalling £170 per month or more. Here are the details: More than 300 severely disabled people have issued a claim in the High Court for lost income under the universal credit system. The group, represented by Leigh Day solicitors, say they…

Equality watchdog has shown Starmer its report on Labour anti-Semitism: expect leak soon

The Equalities and Human Rights Commission has finished its report on allegations of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party and sent a copy to Keir Starmer. We can expect it to be leaked soon, then. That’s only if the report is critical of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, of course. If not, we can expect the party’s right-wing factionalists to keep tight-lipped about it. It will be hard to take the report seriously in any event; the EHRC is the so-called equality organisation that refused to investigate government discrimination against sick and disabled…

Hypocritical Tories verbally attack human rights abusers – but go on selling them weapons

How utterly disgusting. The Conservative government has made a great show of imposing sanctions on human rights abusers – while still selling weapons to the same people so they can continue abusing others. The UK’s poor excuse for a Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, announced sanctions against individuals in Saudi Arabia, Russia, Myanmar and North Korea including asset freezes and travel bans, imposed immediately. “Those with blood on their hands won’t be free … to waltz into this country, to buy up property on the Kings Road, do their Christmas shopping in…

The biters bit: formal anti-semitism complaints are lodged against Starmer and his cronies

It’s good to see some people aren’t brainwashed by Keir Starmer’s misinterpretation of what constitutes anti-semitism. Starmer, along with several cronies in the Parliamentary Labour Party, has falsely accused Rebecca Long-Bailey of tweeting a link to an article containing an anti-semitic conspiracy theory. The problem is that, while the interview with Maxine Peake included a disputed claim that members of the Israeli police/military trained US police to use the choke hold that killed George Floyd, it is not anti-semitic to do so. The claim relates only to the government of…

DWP faces legal action over lost benefit cash – from no fewer than 275 people with disabilities

It seems people with disabilities are seizing the opportunity granted them by a landmark court ruling – and taking legal action against the government over lost benefit income. Leigh Day solicitors have sent a pre-action protocol letter to Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey on behalf of no fewer than 275 former claimants of disability benefits who say changes forced on them by the government department deprived them of £170 per month – or more. They say they lost the cash because they were moved on to Universal Credit before January…

Court threat over ‘illegal’ coronavirus-related ‘Do Not Revive’ orders on disabled people

Remember when This Site reported that doctors were being ordered to deny coronavirus care to people with disabilities? It went on for a while. Eventually it seemed the people at the top of the NHS put a stop to the practice, telling hospitals, GPs and NHS managers not to issue such letters. So why are we being told that medical professionals are still being told not to revive people with disabilities who are suffering from Covid-19? The issue is that doctors are being told to issue these letters about disabled…

If you think the Tories aren’t abusing human rights over coronavirus care home deaths, read this

It didn’t take long to find evidence of possible Tory government human rights abuses in care homes. Here’s the story of Anne Duncan, who faced dying “scared and alone” until her family intervened: Lawyer Linda Duncan said: “If the Government is going to sacrifice the elderly, they should be transparent about it, and make sure care homes have enough staff qualified to provide dignity and care.” Linda and son Anton had Anne Duncan, 91, moved from her care home in Edinburgh to the city’s Western General Hospital for her last…

Is Johnson guilty of human rights abuses over coronavirus care home deaths? Could be!

Amnesty International and Liberty reckon Boris Johnson could be guilty of human rights abuses because he has failed to protect the UK’s 500,000 care home residents from the coronavirus. Judge for yourself: It is feared the Government’s blundering response may have led to as many as 17,500 deaths of elderly residents so far. Person Centred Software, which supplies clinical systems, claims its data suggests care home deaths of 17,505 since March 1. Human Rights law says the Government must protect the life of residents and staff in care homes, preventing…
