Woman's new identity 'revealed to her domestic abuser by the DWP'

Woman's new identity 'revealed to her domestic abuser by the DWP' | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The Department for Work and Pensions has revealed a domestic violence victim’s identity to her abuser, an MP has claimed. Hannah Bardell, MP for Livingston, says one of her constituents approached her for help after the government released her identity to her abusive former partner while they were in the process of calculating her benefits. It is thought the move could have placed the woman at serious risk as she was on a police protection programme and her identity had been changed due to her violent ex-partner.

Lib Dem leader accuses Labour's Corbyn of giving up over Brexit

Lib Dem leader accuses Labour's Corbyn of giving up over Brexit | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Tim Farron says the Labour party is failing and that his party’s clear pro-EU stance can help it become the main opposition
britishroses's insight:
It was clear from all sides that a vote to Leave the EU, meant a vote to leave the single market! Cameron came back from the EU with nothing, because he not only asked for nothing, but the EU said they would not budge on the freedom of movement and no freedom of movement meant no access to the single market. 

Cameron spent £9 million of taxpayers money on a pamphlet posted to every household and in that pamphlet we were told that a vote to leave meant no access to the single market. 

People campaigning to leave where clear they wanted back control of our borders, an end to the freedom of movement of people from the EU, sovereignty and our money. 

The referendum has happened and the majority voted to Leave. Any interference with the triggering of Article 50 is a slap in the face of all those who did vote to Leave, and an attack on democracy! What is it going to take for Politicians to listen to the people? 

As for you Tim Farron, you are an opportunistic little weasel trying to jump on the bandwagon at the expense of democracy and the people of this country; the vote has happened, Article 50 should be triggered now!
