B&NES Council, Curo Housing & the missing secure tenancy agreements

02-06-2015 14:34

Following investigations by the ICO B&NES Council claims it passed the paper copies of 13000 secure tenancy agreements to Curo Housing (formerly Somer Community Housing Trust) which Curo Housing denies ever having received.

On that basis the ICO states it cannot make a decision on which organisation is to blame for this loss as there is a lack of evidence to prove one way or the other ie: its the word of a senior B&NES Council Officer against the word of a senior Curo Housing manager !

UG#708 - Facing The Failing Culture of Control - 1 (Drugs, Addiction and Health)

29-05-2015 07:27

We look at a culture obsessed with control, focusing this episode on the level of the individual. Charles Eisenstein briefly contrasts the old story of isolated individuals in competition with the emerging story of ourselves as parts of a larger self. Then we hear Tomi Gomory, co-author of "Mad Science: Psychiatric Coercion, Diagnosis, and Drugs" on the increasing efforts made to control and categorize people by classifying them as "mentally ill". After some thoughts from Ivan Illich on iatrogenesis, we hear Rebecca Tiger, author of "Judging Addicts", on how the public perception of addiction has been managed as part of the "War on Drugs".U

28-05-2015 23:24

Gary Davis has been exposed as UKIP's worst ever hypocrite. A loather of Muslims and immigration, and a follower of bluehand, he decides to leave Britain and immigrate to a Muslim country - Indonesia, whilst bleating on all day and all night about stopping Muslims from immigrating to the UK.

WHAT NOW FOR TOMMY TIT? @edlnews @slatedl @slatfascists @misscheeky666 @slatukip

Since leaving the ranks of the EDL where he had arose to notoriety by assuming the identity of a real dead Luton football hooligan, stealing the MIG name for a new brand of crappy pseudo-hooligan gear, Stephen Yaxley Lennon has become an internet-only racist, logging onto facebook and twitter to racially abuse brown people outside of the media glare he craves, as as he tumbles arse-first into obscurity.

Burning Books Bahar stylee

I didn't invent the hashtag, although I did think of it on the bus (and I don't have a smartphone). As it goes, I'm most certainly not in favour of killing Bahar, and I don't even think that she should be sacked.

This is not the first time that she has been the subject of media attention at Goldsmiths, the university where my eyes were forced wide open on a Social Anthropology course a couple of decades ago.

I can't say that I am entirely comfortable with her style of politics, whether it is the burning of Socialist Worker, or telling white people that they are not welcome at a union screening of Dear White People, a movie which I ended up watching alone in my front room, but might have got more from if I had watched it with others and there had been a discussion about it afterwards.

and are marching on Saturday June 13th in Dudley. Casuals United's previous actions amounted to throwing female anti-cuts protestors down stairs.
