first_imgA disabled politician branded the new press regulator “ineffective”, “self-serving” and a “sham” this week as it celebrated its first year.Emily Brothers (pictured) played a key role in a protest outside the offices of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO), organised by the pressure group HackedOff.She was one of 15 “victims of press abuse” who sent an open letter to IPSO, describing it as a “cosmetically altered version of the discredited PCC [Press Complaints Commission]”.They said that IPSO was – in each of their cases – “either biased in favour of the newspaper or failed to follow due process”, and had refused to provide a right of appeal or to take “effective steps to change newspaper conduct”.Brothers and the other signatories of the letter added: “We have no confidence in this sham body, which is controlled by the newspapers that have appointed their own ‘industry representatives’ to sit in judgment on their compliance with their own ‘editors’ code’.”IPSO was set up by large newspaper groups in the wake of the Leveson Report into press standards.HackedOff says IPSO was set up by the groups – which do not include the Guardian, the Independent or the Financial Times – to avoid implementing Lord Leveson’s recommendations.It says that IPSO was “based at the same offices as the PCC, with the same staff, the same founding directors, and the same company number”, while its appointment process was “controlled by the industry who wielded a veto over any members”.In May, IPSO told the Sun newspaper that it was guilty of “discriminatory” and “unacceptable” behaviour when it printed a column mocking Brothers’ disabled, transgender status.She is believed to have been the first blind woman to stand for parliament and also the first candidate with a trans-sexual history to stand for Labour in a parliamentary election, when she fought the Sutton and Cheam seat in May.Although the tabloid was forced to publish the IPSO adjudication in full, it was not ordered to apologise to her.Brothers said: “It is extraordinary that the press think they can get away with changing the name of the PCC to IPSO in the Yellow Pages and carrying on just as they have before. “The experiences of people like me, attacked in the press in a way that was offensive to everybody with a disability and transgender background, with IPSO totally unwilling and unable to provide meaningful remedy, shows just how ineffective and self-serving the sham new regulator IPSO really is. “Victims like myself and other members of the public cannot possibly have any confidence in IPSO or any regulator until it meets Leveson’s very simple tests for independence and effectiveness.”Another of those who sent the letter was Linda Pearson, a grandmother from Yorkshire, who was appalled by the way IPSO treated her complaint about an article in the Daily Star.She had described on a hospital website how weight-loss surgery had transformed her life, after not being able to get in and out of the bath for 20 years because of her weight.But the newspaper twisted this into a headline that called her a “Grubby gran” who “hadn’t washed for 20 years”.When she complained, the newspaper simply amended its story and published a correction and apology “where no one would notice it”.HackedOff also mentioned IPSO’s failure to take action over reports – including in the Daily Mail – that the BBC wanted to recruit a disabled weather presenter, when in fact it had just set up a free short training course in weather presenting for disabled people.It also pointed to IPSO’s failure to act over a story in the Mirror that said young women were being denied IVF treatment “so equality targets on disabled and gay couples can be met”.In fact, entitlement to IVF had been restricted, not denied, and the focus was on helping older women, with no targets for gay or disabled people.last_img read more

first_imgDisability News Service (DNS) will this week ask a tribunal to require the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to publish information about secret reviews it carried out into the deaths of 49 benefit claimants.DNS has been trying since August 2014 to find out what actions ministers took in the wake of deaths linked to the employment and support allowance (ESA) claim process, and the refusal or removal of ESA and other benefits.DWP originally insisted that it held no such information, a claim made both by civil servants and the former minister for disabled people, Mark Harper.But after Steve Webb, a Liberal Democrat ministerial colleague of Harper, contradicted his claim in October 2014, their department was forced to admit that it did carry out what it called “peer reviews” into benefit-related deaths.Following a request submitted by DNS under the Freedom of Information Act, DWP finally admitted that it had carried out 49 such reviews between February 2012 and autumn 2014.But ministers refused to release these reviews, or their conclusions or recommendations, even if personal information was redacted.They claimed that the civil servants who had compiled the reviews would be breaking the law if they were released to DNS, even though the relevant legislation – section 123 of the Social Security Administration Act 1992 – makes it clear that it would be entirely lawful to do so if that decision was authorised by the secretary of state for work and pensions, Iain Duncan Smith.When DNS appealed to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) last year, it agreed with DWP that it did not have to release the reviews, or details about them.The DNS appeal against that decision by the ICO will take place in London in front of the First-Tier Tribunal (Information Rights) on 3 March, although a decision is not expected until a later date.DNS will be represented at the tribunal by barrister Elizabeth Kelsey, of Monckton Chambers, who has worked pro bono on the case.John Pring, editor of DNS, said it was vital that the reviews were released by DWP.In the last year, again following DWP’s refusal to release information within its possession, DNS has investigated two benefit-related deaths almost certain to have been subject to peer reviews, those of Stephen Carré in January 2010 and Michael O’Sullivan in September 2013.In both cases, coroners linked the deaths to the ESA claim process – particularly to flaws within the work capability assessment (WCA) – and went as far as writing reports calling for DWP to take action to prevent future deaths.DWP breached its legal duty to respond to the Stephen Carré report in 2010, and this month finally admitted that it had a draft version of a response in its records, which it failed to send to the coroner.The failure to respond to the coroner’s report is important because ministers took key decisions that year that led to the WCA being rolled out without the improvements necessary to correct its flaws, putting the lives of hundreds of thousands of people with mental health conditions at risk.DNS believes that the secret peer reviews could reveal many other such cases, in which flaws in DWP policy and practice were responsible for the deaths of benefit claimants.Pring said: “The work DNS has done is only a small part of much wider investigations by other journalists and activists into the impact of welfare reform by successive governments on sick and disabled people.“We need to know why these people died, whether their deaths were linked to government action, or inaction, and what measures ministers took, or didn’t take, to prevent further deaths.“It is not good enough for ministers to hide behind social security legislation; Iain Duncan Smith could easily order the publication of these reviews.“The families of those who died deserve to know the truth, as do the millions of sick and disabled people who will go through the benefits system in the next few years, and who have already been through it.“They need that system to be safe, and they also need to know that ministers have done and are doing everything they possibly can to avoid causing them unnecessary harm.”A DWP spokeswoman said: “We take these matters extremely seriously, which is why we look into our processes over complex cases like these.“However, having a review in no way means the department was at fault.”last_img read more

first_imgTags:Mike Katz /Antisemitism /Jewish Labour Movement /The Sunday Times /JLM /Baroness Chakrabarti / The Jewish Labour Movement held its annual general meeting on Sunday, when it elected Mike Katz as national movement chair and Ruth Smeeth – replacing Luciana Berger, who has quit Labour to form a new party – as parliamentary chair.Katz fought off incumbent Ivor Caplin, as well as Colin Appleby, who ran on a platform advocating disaffiliation from the Labour Party – an idea that was rejected as JLM activists pledged to “stay and fight” rather than sever the 99-year link.The former Camden councillor and parliamentary candidate, who pledged to raise funds for a professional organiser and build relationships with youth networks, reportedly won by a significant margin.In his candidate statement, Katz said: “We have a party leadership which continues to insult, ignore and disrespect us and the many progressive Jews we represent.”JLM members did not opt to disaffiliate from Labour at the AGM, but did pass a motion of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn almost unanimously following speeches from Labour MPs Margaret Hodge, Ruth Smeeth and Louise Ellman.The motion said that the party leadership – including its NEC, the shadow cabinet and the general secretary – had “fundamentally failed to address antisemitism” and “continue to provoke” JLM by, for example, ending the use of the body for antisemitism training.The JLM motion resolved: “To make a proclamation stating that we have no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn and our belief that he is unfit to be Prime Minister.”The closest vote of the day, with 81 votes in favour and 67 against, was on an amendment to the ‘Labour Party antisemitism’ policy motion. The proposed change removed condemnation of Corbynite group Momentum and replaced it with criticism of Jewish Voice for Labour.Where the motion cited “Momentum, CLPD and LRC” – the latter referring to the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy and the Labour Representation Committee – the named groups became “CLPD, the LRC and JVL”. They were said to have “acted… to protect and support those engaging in antisemitism”.A passage approving of Momentum’s recent actions was added. JLM noted: “That Momentum has, for the last year, committed itself to tackling antisemitism within the Labour Party and wider society, through educational videos directed at Labour Party members, calling out and reporting antisemitic posts online, and joining JLM and other groups in protest against the likes of David Icke & Gilad Atzmon.”Activists also passed a motion in favour of a “People’s Vote”, urging Labour to campaign for another referendum on Brexit.National executive committee – full results:National movement chair:Colin APPLEBYIvor CAPLINMike KATZ – electedNational secretary:Peter MASON – electedNational vice chair(s)+:Joe GOLDBERG – electedJerry LEWISSarah SACKMAN – electedStephane SAVARY – electedNational treasurer:Cathy ASHLEY – electedCampaigns officer:Adam LANGLEBEN – electedInternational officer:Izzy LENGA – electedJerry LEWISLocal government officer:Joshua GARFIELD – electedMembership officer:Alex RICHARDSON – electedNetworks officer:Ella ROSE – electedPolicy officer:Liron VELLEMAN – electedPolitical education officer:Rebecca FILER – electedTrade union officer:Miriam MIRWITCH – electedYouth & students officer:Luisa ATTFIELD & Jack LUBNER – electedParliamentary & political council:National parliamentary chair: Ruth Smeeth MPNational president: Dame Louise Ellman MPNational vice president (Commons): Dame Margaret Hodge MPNational vice president (Lords): Baroness Meta RamsayOn the same day of the AGM, The Sunday Times reported that leaked emails showed the party had failed to discipline members accused of antisemitism and that Corbyn’s office had intervened in numerous cases.A Labour spokesperson said: “This is another seriously misleading Sunday Times story, full of wrong figures, inaccurate claims and complete falsehoods‪. The selective use of leaked of emails has excluded information in the same email chains showing the opposite of what is alleged in the article.”Ruth Smeeth told Channel 4 News that she had Whatsapped Corbyn on Saturday evening to ask about the reports, and he received the message but did not reply.“My mother had to read that this morning. This is not what any of us should be experiencing.”Labour MP Ruth Smeeth says her own party’s response to antisemitism allegations is “simply not good enough”. pic.twitter.com/G27piLXwjz— Channel 4 News (@Channel4News) April 7, 2019On Sunday morning, Baroness Chakrabarti appeared on Sky’s Ridge on Sunday. Commenting on the latest antisemitism story and the JLM meeting, the Labour peer and frontbencher said:“My plea to the Jewish Labour Movement is to stay in the labour movement and to tackle racism together, not to personalise it and make it about Jeremy Corbyn because he is one person and he won’t be leader forever.”Shadow Attorney General Baroness Chakrabarti says her colleagues have challenged a number of allegations in @thesundaytimes, but acknowledges the Labour Party has had a problem with antisemitism #Ridge.Get live updates on today’s political stories here: https://t.co/q2DW9wNbzD pic.twitter.com/nh6UrAOXev— Ridge on Sunday (@RidgeOnSunday) April 7, 2019last_img read more

first_imgTWO points? Just another game? No chance…Saints take on Wigan at Millennium Magic this Saturday and Saints full back Paul Wellens reckons it won’t be a run of the mill fixture.“It’s a derby and that says it all,” he said. “Yes there’s only two points up for grabs but it’s the passion that makes it special.“Cardiff is a fantastic venue too and has been a happy hunting ground for us. We won a Challenge Cup there and the last two Millennium Magic games.“I scored four tries against Wigan there in 2007 too and it would be nice if that could happen again!”Wellens, who was named joint captain with James Graham early last week, believes the Saints are ready to push for silverware on all fronts.“Year on year Super League gets more competitive and this season more teams feel they are in a genuine chance of winning the title. And if you make the top 8 then you give yourself a real chance. We believe we are one of those teams that can contest the final. There’s a lot of hard work to be done but we are prepared to do that.“We’ve been in pre season for a few months now and there’s only so much training we can do. We now want to go out on the field and put that into practice.”Behind the scenes there has almost been a changing of the guard at Saints with club legend Keiron Cunningham retiring and new players coming in. Saints also have a new coach in Royce Simmons and Wellens thinks the changes have brought a buzz to the camp.“It’s good that Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Michael Shenton and Josh Perry have joined the club and fitted in so well. They added extra enthusiasm to the squad – especially Louie – and it is infectious.“Royce has made some subtle changes attack and defence. One area we all agreed we needed to improve on was defence.Saints have never struggled to score points, but last year we leaked too many. Royce has touched on that and is making sure we have pride in defence as well as attack.“This weekend’s game will give us an indication of whether we can do that. And there is no sterner test than against Wigan. They lost a lot of big players – Farrell, Newton and Radlinski – but Wigan has certainly got all that old strength back.“They are a good side with a lot of good young talent like the Tomkins brothers and Liam Farrell – Wigan lads through and through – who have given their squad a big lift”Paul signed a two-year contract in the off-season and admits it could be the last two years of his career.“I’ll be 31 at the end of the month and who knows, it could be the last contract I sign. I want to continue to be competitive and play at high level.“I also still want to play for England and would answer the call if needed. But I need to play well for Saints first and if it comes then it’s all well and good.”last_img read more

There’s just blood everywhere on her and they’re all biting, nipping at her.”Ginley tried to fight off the dogs.Related Article: UPDATE: Police say teen shot near Creekwood in serious condition“The biggest one lunged at me, got my arm,” Ginley said. “Basically all I could do at that point was keep talking to her try and make sure that she’s still conscious she lost consciousness a few times.”Bite wounds on Ginley’s arm (PHOTO: Thomas Ginley)Hinson was unconscious and had multiple bite wounds.

first_imgAdvertisement Google is rightly proud of its latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system but, somehow, somewhere along the line, the company managed to miss out something fairly significant with its latest update that hit this past Saturday. Something set in stone, something that little (and big) kids celebrate the world over…the month of December – as Daily Social reports.While the twelfth and last month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars is present on the calendar app and other features, it is strangely omitted from the People app, the app at the center of its social experience. In other words friends’ birthdays, significant dates (um…Christmas!!), etc will not appear for those with the latest update.Perhaps this is one example where Google’s notorious Android fragmentation works in its favour, since the update has only landed on a handful of Nexus devices thus far. – Advertisement – Ebenezer Scrooge, The Grinch, Jack Frost, et al will rejoice, but we fully expect an update will come along shortly to fix this embarrassing oversight.For now, enjoy the screenshot below.Credit: TNWlast_img read more
