HUNDREDS of thousands of Brits could get an extra £4,000 a year under the Government's trouble-hit Universal Credit system, the Sun Online can reveal today. Around 700,000 claimants are in line for an extra £78 per week when they move on to the controversial new system, which has so far been hit by a string of teething problems. The money is made up of unclaimed benefits that claimants are currently unaware they are entitled to, but should be picked up by the new system. Theresa May has told MPs that there are billions of pounds of unclaimed benefits sitting in a pot that will be able to be dished out automatically when Brits switch to the new system. Three million people are set to go onto Universal Credit next year as part of a staged switchover from the current benefits system. She said yesterday: "There are £2.4billion of unclaimed benefits under the legacy system of the Labour party that will be paid to people under Universal Credit. "700,000 people (will be) … [Read more...] about Universal Credit will see 700,000 Brits get access to extra £4k of unclaimed benefits – are you one of them?
Child labour how much they get paid
DID you see the rabble on your TV news? The Labour Party conference in Liverpool. There they all were, waving their fatuous Palestinian flags. And some of them chanting the slogan “from the river to the sea” favoured by Hamas and the PLO, who demand the liquidation of Israel. Lovely people. That will have put to rest any worries the British Jewish community might have, no? And they STILL claim they’re not anti-Semitic. Some dizzy bint then got up and demanded a general strike. Right now! Everyone out! Why? To “bring down” the hated Tories. Basically, a spoiled child’s temper tantrum. But she got a standing ovation from the deranged lefties who have taken over the party, Momentum. It was strikes which brought down Labour, if you remember. Strike after strike. The damage that did to the country, back in the late 1970s. And the damage it did to Labour — out of power for almost 20 years. And the pie-in-the-sky policy announcements. Apparently … [Read more...] about The Labour Party I once loved is dead and now taken over by loony Momentum
Let’s address “when’s it due?”. It’s a tricky question if you know for sure that your interlocutor is pregnant. If you don’t, it’s potentially disastrous. The first time someone asked me a similar question, I was a 19-year-old student. I was standing in the queue at McDonald’s. In front of me was a woman with her child. The little boy, who must have been about five, was bored and restless. He jumped from foot to foot. He swung from his mother’s arm. He twirled around and caught my eye. Then he hopped forward, patted me on the stomach and asked: “When are you having yours?” Aged 19, I was built like Olive Oyl. Sideways on I looked like a golf club. So I laughed. The boy laughed. Yet his mother, who was heavily pregnant herself, apologised so profusely I worried she might go into labour. Because she knew (as I too know now that I’m twice the woman I used to be) that asking … [Read more...] about You can’t ask me that: Is it ever OK to ask someone when they are due?
So that’s that, is it? One set of inconclusive local election results, and the undertakers at New Labour Bereavement Services are polishing the brass handles of Jeremy Corbyn’s political coffin once again. They have done it so often and fervently these last two and a half years that a class action for repetitive strain injury could be imminent. They had the Brasso out when he didn’t wear a tie or sing God Save The Queen, when Hilary Benn resigned, and with every coup that crashed on take-off. They summoned the priest to read the last rites when Theresa May called the snap election that would bury the entire party. Now they’re digging a hole in the ground because Labour didn’t win Barnet. (Of course it didn’t. The party is so riven by antisemitism that it is barely three years since it had a Jewish leader.) If history teaches that the Corbyn obituary tends to be premature, New Labour’s laureates of entitlement are pitifully slow … [Read more...] about Corbyn has proven time and time again that he’s not going anywhere, but it seems the tedious relics of New Labour are still in denial
After White House chief of staff John Kelly pressured President Donald Trump last fall to install his top deputy, Kirstjen Nielsen, atop the Department of Homeland Security, the president lost his temper when conservative allies argued she wasn't sufficiently hardline on immigration. "You didn't tell me she was a [expletive] George W. Bush person," Trump growled. After Kelly told Fox News Channel's Bret Baier in a January interview that Trump's immigration views had not been "fully informed" during the campaign and had since "evolved," the president berated Kelly in the Oval Office - his shouts so loud they could be heard through the doors. And just 11 days ago, Kelly grew so frustrated on the day that Trump fired Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin that Nielsen and Defense Secretary James Mattis both tried to calm him down and offer pep talks, according to three people with knowledge of the incident. "I'm out of here, guys," Kelly said - comments some interpreted as a … [Read more...] about The inside story of how Trump’s Chief of Staff lost his power
