Fighting Back: Petitions to Sign

We may have been victorious in getting the odious Toby Young to resign from his role of 'Uni Tsar' this week (and oh, how the wailing and gnashing of teeth has begun from his supporters within the party), but Theresa May's ridiculous reshuffle reminds us that scum rises to the top.

Remember Esther McVey? This failed TV presenter and heartless woman was an atrociously callous former Disability Minister and Employment Minister under IDS, and booted out of government in the 2015 election because of her actions and attitudes in parliament: her consistent voting against an increase in welfare benefit spending, and her £170,000+ expenses claims whilst arguing that 'it is right that people are going to food banks because as times are tough, we are all having to pay back this £1.5 trillion debt personally". Unfortunately, since 2015 she's been working her way back into the heart of government, first by securing the safe Tory seat of Tatton when George 'Pencils' Osborne resigned, and then by bagging the Tory whip job, promising to bring 'a feminine touch' to the role - whatever the hell that means. Now the Maybot has returned her back to the DWP, hiring her as DWP Secretary, a wholly unsuitable job for someone without empathy. This is a death knell for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society and we need to voice our disapproval by signing this petition.

An while we are at it, if you haven't signed the petition to reject the proposal made by Simon Dudley, the leader of Windsor's Tory run council (pictured above with his glorious leader), to remove the homeless in the area by May 19th, the date Prince Harry is to marry Meghan Markle. Homelessness is NOT a "security risk" as this heartless snob claims, it is a symptom of this government's ruthless austerity measures. Dudley may feel the homeless population in his "beautiful town" puts it in an "unfavourable light", but the real spotlight should be put upon the policies of a government which has resided over an increase in homelessness since coming to power in 2010 as a direct result of their austerity programme.
