Hull and East Yorkshire NHS Trust are shutting 300 beds and ten wards. This includes the specialist cardiac Ward at Castle Hill plus ending of Neuro emergency beds at Hull Royal which has been condemned as "dangerous" by Prof. John Cleland, Head of Cardiology at Castle Hill.
Neurologists wrote the following this month. "We have voiced our concerns on numerous occasions at managerial meetings and our opinions and concerns have been disregarded and a dictatorial approach has been taken, with new changes to our service implemented against our advice."
The cuts being made to benefits and the proposed assessments that will be carried out are a huge cause of concern to us - we believe they are immoral and cruel. Reasonable adjustments are not being made and people with autism face much discrimination as a result.
Only 15 per cent of adults with autism are in full time paid employment (Reid, B. 2006 ‘Moving on up? Negotiating the transition to adulthood for young people with autism NAS) compared to 48 per cent of the whole population of people with disabilities (Labour Force survey, office for national statistics 2008)
Adults with autism often want to work and with the correct level of support it has been proven that they can. This suggests that the low employment figures cannot be attributed to a lack of desire to work. These statistics also clearly demonstrate that it is considerably more difficult for an adult with autism than an adult with another disability to secure full time employment.
There are a number of key challenges that prevent people with autism from accessing work. These range from a lack of appropriate skills due to problems in accessing education and training (including social skills and work skills training) to the failure of employers to understand and make reasonable adjustments (both during the recruitment process and in the workplace) and a lack of appropriate support for people with autism to find and sustain employment.
The new assessments for ESA (and PIP when it is implemented) do not make reasonable adjustments to take into consideration the social and communication impairments that people with autism face. ATOS assessors do not have adequate training in autism and the centres do not take into account the sensory needs of people with autism.
Park Ward is an area of Victorian Housing, where the streets are narrow and the demand for parking high. There are a mixture of families, single people and students living in the area and many households own
more than one car.
As a result of this residents are forced, if they want to park near to their homes later in the evening, to park on corners, on curbs and on yellow lines as there is simply nowhere else to park.
This results in residents receive parking tickets, sometimes twice in one night when the Parking Wardens patrol both late at night and early in the morning.
The labour party lost the support of the broad left wing when, in the words of John McDonnell, " [New Labour] lost the moral basis of the Labour party as it was founded ... the creation of a fair and just and peaceful and equal society". During the Blair/Brown years, membership and activism fell, as natural allies of the party became disillusioned and disenfranchised.
Since that time there has been no mainstream voice arguing for working people or against the pernicious neoliberal consensus. The results of this failure were seen at the last election.
Now is the time for all those on the left to unite in order to combat the menace of the new right-wing coalition government. Left unchallenged, David Cameron’s government will lay waste to our public services as Thatcher’s did our manufacturing sector. Such sweeping cuts and marketisation will damage irreparably the health, education, well-being and social cohesion of the nation.
The only way to effect this challenge is to unite the voices of all left wing and progressive people behind a party that will truly represent their interests and those of the working people of Britain.
John McDonnell, MP for Hayes and Harlington, is a voice for change and values that are desired by a majority of labour/liberal voters in the UK.
To give a proper contest representing the broad church that is the Labour Party.
To be forwarded to Labour MP's by 6th June.
Diane Abbot was the first black woman to be elected to the house of commons in 1987, and remained the only one for 10 years. She is known as a free-spirit with high morals and not one to 'tow the party line', with both a honest, professional and frank personality, whilst still retaining a sense of humour. Furthermore, she also has the ability to admit her mistakes and isn't afraid to answer the hard questions.
She can be seen regularly on the television program "This Week" along with Michael Portillo and Andrew Neil, on which she is a regular political commentator.
Even more appealing however, is the fact that she doesn't have a second home.
More information is available about her at:
The Labour Party in Northampton South is shocked at the pernicious rise in Council Tax, at 4%, which is above the national average.
It is particularly difficult to accept at a time when the Lib Dems voted massive hikes in their councillor allowances, a move which has proved deeply unpopular with the residents of Northampton.
We are particularly critical of Councillor Tony Woods' massive personal increase which, in our opinion, cannot possibly be justified.
In 2004, Tony Blair, the then Labour Party leader and British Prime Minister, promised the country a referendum on the EU Constitution.
He did this because the EU Constitution altered Britain’s relationship with the European Union and handed over a massive amount of power to Brussels. In 2005, the Labour Party fought and won a General Election with the referendum pledge contained in their manifesto.
Also in 2005, the EU Constitution was rejected by French and Dutch voters, ensuring the proposed constitution was scrapped.
Now, in place of the failed EU Constitution, EU leaders, including Prime Minister Gordon Brown, have signed a Reform Treaty, which is almost identical to the EU Constitution. It also involves a huge amount of powers being transferred to Brussels. However, the Labour Party has gone back on its referendum pledge of 2005 and is refusing to give the people a vote.
We, the UK Independence Party South Sefton Branch, believe that this is a disgrace and a betrayal of the British people. Therefore we are calling on Bootle’s Labour MP to follow the lead of his Labour colleagues on Merseyside, Frank Field MP and Bob Wareing MP, and support a referendum.
Many of the Penalty Fees being charged by banks are not enforceable and should not be charged.
Since 2004 with the release of the Rich Report, the banking industry and the Government became aware that Penalty Fees charged by banks (such as Honour / Dishonour fees) are illegal. The law only entitles banks to recover their costs, not to profit from these fees.
In the UK, Banks have now handed back over a Billion Pounds wrongly deducted from customers accounts. The Government Via the UK Office of Fair Trading has moved to formally set maximum amounts that banks can charge to recover costs.
In Australia however, despite this knowledge, banks are continuing to take these fees from customers accounts and only under direct threat of court action from individual customers are refunding these fees. A free report along with a template letter for requesting a refund from your bank is available at www.loanchecker.com.au/bank-fees
The Government has failed to act to protect australian citizens from what amounts to theft on a massive scale.
Senator Steve Fielding introduced a private members bill to refer the matter to a senate committe which should have reported its findings prior to the election. This report however was delayed by the coalition controlled senate to report after the election in order to avoid this matter becoming an election issue.
It is our intention with this Petition to put the issue back on the agenda and for both parties to publicly confirm that they will act to enforce the return of these penalty fees to banking customers.
