Cruelty to rape victims and their children – Tories force almost 200 women claimants to ‘prove’ rape

Shocking figures released by HMRC (HM Revenue & Customs) today have revealed that 190 women were forced to fill in forms under the Tory government’s ‘rape clause’ legislation to ‘prove’ they became pregnant through rape.

Video: Speaker has to silence Tory contempt as Corbyn represents workers under threat

On Wednesday, Liverpool Labour MP Dan Carden tweeted a comment triggered by a display of arrogance and contempt by Tory MPs during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) that was astonishing even by their low standards.

Vid: Green lets slip what May won’t admit – Tories to raise ALL taxes to pay for their NHS incompetence

Video: S*n pol editor calls Rudd ‘scalp’ for ‘witchhunt, no sorry, really important story’

S*n political editor Tom Newton Dunn made an interesting and possibly Freudian slip today on the BBC’s Daily Politics programme when, while describing Theresa May’s ‘insulation’ from the Windrush scandal, he described public outrage over the forced deportation, denial of medical treatment and barring from employment of UK citizens as a ‘witch-hunt‘. Newton Dunn quickly corrected […]

We’re supposed to think Javid will end ‘hostile environment’? His record suggests not

Former Communities Secretary Sajid Javid has been appointed to replace Amber Rudd as Home Secretary. Judging by the apparently-coordinated media and social media campaign from Establishment figures, we’re supposed to think that a ‘BAME’ (black, Asian, minority ethnic) Home Secretary marks an end to the remote, callous and frankly racist policies of the ‘hostile environment’ […]
