Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

Theresa "MAY" not build a better Britain.

I reckon the Cameron "we're all in this together" thread doesn't cut the mustard anymore and that TM deserves her very own thread where we can pick the bitch apart on her hollow promise.

A record number of food parcels will be handed out across the UK this financial year, a major food bank charity said.


The Salisbury-based Trussell Trust said it had issued 500,000 in the past six months and was on course for the highest number in its 12-year history.


It blamed benefit changes, which it said "accounted for 44% of referrals".


The Department of Work and Pensions said food bank use was complex and it was "misleading to link to any one issue".


David McAuley, from the Trussell Trust, said: "To stop UK hunger we must make sure the welfare system works fairly and compassionately, stopping people getting to a point where they have no money to eat.


He said the charity had "anecdotal evidence" suggesting food bank managers and volunteers spent a significant amount of time on hold to Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) phone lines on behalf of people in crisis.


'Telephone hotline'

Mr McAuley said: "It feels like we could be seeing a new era at the DWP with a consultation on work capability assessments and willingness to engage in dialogue with charities working on the front line.


"A telephone hotline could build on this and go a long way to improving food banks' ability to help get people out of a crisis faster."


A DWP spokesman said the "the vast majority of benefits are processed on time".


He said: "But for those who need extra support, we provide a strong safety net through the welfare system, including hardship payments, benefit advances and budgeting loans."


But Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary Debbie Abrahams said Labour would scrap the "punitive sanctions regime" of the current government and said it was "clear that delays in benefit payments and changes to eligibility are a major cause behind this increase".


"Even more staggering in the run up to Christmas is almost 200,000 children will be relying on a food parcel to get a decent meal," she said.


Between April and September 2016, Trussell Trust food banks across the UK issued 519,342 three-day emergency food packs, compared with 506,369 during the same period last year.

Theresa Mayhem looks like a rabbit in the headlights half the time, I think there maybe a few regrets creeping in, There is no way she will deliver on her promises and several years of bitter conflict both inside and outside her party are in store. On top of that are growing pressures from all parties with interests at stake in Brexit, Then finally there are the Europeans who smell blood if she ever manages to get past the starting gate and trigger C50. I doubt these jaunts to India and other so called potential trading partners are giving her any comfort at all. They all have their agendas and  existing trading arrangements. I bet she wishes she could wind the clock back and hide under the radar in the Home Office again

She will go down as a miserable failure and hopefully drag down that scheming cunt Johnson too,

I have this feeling she is nothing more than a Sacrificial Lamb until the Tories unleash someone like IDS. 

 

IDS is a village idiot and has had his 15 minutes of fame
