I though this may have been.

One thing is for sure: if/when Labour get back into power the measures won't be unpicked. Yes, they will make all the right noises, but they know as well as anyone else that the welfare budget was allowed to get way out of control and is simply unaffordable!

Thats got to be a joke surely, otherwise we are going back to the days when we arm ourselves and look after our own protection.

Interestingly her employer was not aware, so lets see if there is any reaction from them.

Let's just ask the Mathew Trust what they think. It will be interesting to see how busy they will become over the coming year. I would imagine that they will be rushed off their feet.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."

      Labour was shaken by Ukip at the General Election. You don't have to look hard to find senior Labour figures that will candidly admit this.  But things have got a lot worse for Labour since - they get worse every week, and every time Corbyn and his communist cohorts open their mouths.  This week's Little Red Book incident could have been scripted by the spin doctors at Tory Central Office; it certainly had the Parliamentary Labour Party wanting to crawl under their seats!
      Senior Labour figures are coming back from Oldham and reporting that huge numbers of their supporters are telling them that they are switching to Ukip because they won't vote for a Corbyn-led party.  Ukip came very close to kicking out Labour in nearby solidly Labour Heywood, but things have now got to the stage that the previously unthinkable is indeed possible: loss of perhaps Labour's safest seat in the country!  Certainly the Bookies think so and have now dramatically shortened their odds.
      But, whilst a Ukip win would be welcome to many, it's not all that appealing to senior planners at Ukip, who are playing to the long-term.  Their focus is on the referendum - a referendum which any thinking person must admit was dragged out of Cameron in a moment of panic after seeing huge numbers of working-class Tory supporters defect.  Corbyn is one of Ukip's best assets, and Labour would come to it's senses a lot earlier if the Parliamentary Labour Party had the ammunition to oust him.  A Ukip win would put the nuclear option into their hands.  So, Ukip is hoping for an illustration of the very possible, but not a show of the very probable, or the disaster scenario of an outright win!  If you relish paradoxes this has to be one of the very best.

      So what's going on in Newark?  From a serious challenger, nine out of ten LD voters desert the party and it loses its deposit!  Those votes should have gone to Labour, but Labour is seriously down in the polls too.  Seriously down from one of its worst results ever, at a time when it should have been packing on votes!
      Nine thousand voters certainly haven't deserted the LD's to go to UKIP.  The vast majority of those LDs voted for Cameron's left-of-center, split-on-Europe, Tory party!  UKIP have taken both Tory and Labour votes, and are likely to keep them.  UKIP have likely also brought people back into politics who have felt they've had no real representation in recent decades.
      The LD screw-up in removing Clegg has likely finished the party for good, and we are back with three party politics - only a different three parties!  Miliband is poison, even to most Labour voters, and if he ever becomes PM by default it is going to be a very sad fixed five year term for this country.  A completely wasted five years until even brainless Labour supporters, who don't realise who and what they are electing, have had enough of him.
      There are still a lot of imponderables, but we certainly live in interesting times.  A change of leadership could completely transform any of the old parties, and even save the LDs from oblivion. That none of them can do this shows what a disparate rabble each of them really is!  Here's the real reason for the surge in devolution: nowadays people feel better able to do things for themselves.

      European Clegg Boll*x is good for a starter.
      So the Reichsbank has just cut Euro interest rates to a staggeringly low 0.15% to "avoid deflation". The Euro is in trouble - real trouble - everyone (wow, even the LDs!) have known this for a long while.  Our financially astute friends up North worked this out for themselves long ago too.  Sterling is just as much theirs as it is ours, we are told.  Well, not so fast, but we're glad you eventually noticed.
      The Euro is predicated on political pipe-dreams of tired, old, out-of-touch, men and is destined to fail - but so, my dear LD friends, is The European Project.  Only the Germans have the tenacity (and stupidity) to cling on to a really dumb idea until inevitability is right outside their bunker door.
      Meanwhile the UK economy is on the rise after Gordo's uberbinge, and the BoE (Bank of Enlightenment) is worried about inflation again.  What could further emphasise that the UK is a viable economic unit on the World stage, and simply shouldn't be throwing huge sums of our precious Sterling at a the long dead idea of a European super-state?
      Yup, it's the seventieth anniversary of 'D' day, and our UKIP troopers are making the first tentative landings on enemy shores. Our French allies are to be regarded with suspicion as they're a funny lot, and a lot of them still support German domination. Elsewhere large swathes of the Continent are quietly hoping we will liberate them.  Cue-in for the Abba song: Waterloo, of course!

      Cam is the man who wants us to believe that this time around he will keep his promise for a referendum on the EU in 2015, and that we can trust him to renegotiate our membership. Promise, what promise? Referendum, what referendum? Don't remember that; do you Nick?
