Power

Ghost Whistler / February 15, 2018 at 10:25 AM 88 views

So we can see just how power works, and it is never a good thing.A "hand up" not a "hand out"; in other words we can pay to print a CV or the cost of a stamp, but to feed…

Same Old Bullshit

Ghost Whistler / February 6, 2018 at 1:45 PM 59 views

Since last Summer, as I've mentioned a few times, I've been 'working' with another social enterprise, this one is called Team North Somerset. I didn't mention them before because, fuck it I am now. I don't know what else to…

Ghost Whistler / February 4, 2018 at 9:11 AM 70 views

So this isn't really news, but who cares. I'm struggling to keep up with it all.For reasons best known only to Brexit, failed Wirral MP and 'bootrstrap' mentality peddler, Esther McVey, has been given the reigns of power at the…

Week 3 – the same old Carrilion

Ghost Whistler / January 25, 2018 at 12:01 PM 70 views

Keeping up with the increasingly ridiculous Tory government is doing my head in.It's the end of week 4 ffs and the whole President's Club scandal of entrenched privilege has broken. Carillion was last week's news.That said, it's a clear indication…

So That Just Happened

Ghost Whistler / November 16, 2017 at 12:28 PM 202 views

Or didn't.Woke up stressed because I was supposed to be haveing my WCA today.Yes, you heard that right. Supposed.So what actually happened: turned up at quarter past nine for a 9:25am appointment. During the subsequent 35 minute wait (because they…

The Fucking Cosh

Ghost Whistler / October 26, 2017 at 9:31 AM 103 views

This is the fucking cosh.Over our heads, for the sake of some dosh...What agitates me the most: the thought of losing my income and having to go to the local foodbank. I would starve. I can't eat that kind of…

Magical Thinking

Ghost Whistler / December 6, 2016 at 11:53 AM 374 views

Well that's that for pursuing a diagnosis for Aspergers or anything remotely similar.I contacted the Patient Advisory Liaison Service (PALS) to try and sort this out after being lied to by the clinician regarding referring me to the ADD (Attention…

Trump The Election System

Ghost Whistler / November 16, 2016 at 11:13 AM 547 views

Well that just happened.Representative democracy wins out again: despite Clinton getting the popular vote (by a margin of less than 1%), straw-haired bigoted hate sausage and professional misogynist Donald Trump now has his fat fingers firmly planted (from January) on…

What the Hell is Success, Mr Green?

Ghost Whistler / November 8, 2016 at 11:06 AM 763 views

A cap on total benefits received by a family that has already driven people into (or further into) poverty is hailed as a success by the man now committing to a further reduction in that cap. This is reality: the…

First the Worst (nothing changes for the poor)

Ghost Whistler / November 6, 2016 at 10:33 AM 469 views

This is a picture perfect example of everything wrong with our society and how the least affluent are treated. It involves a certain public transport provider with a piss poor reputation, everyone knows of whom I speak, but let's call…

Another Damian, Another Dollar

Ghost Whistler / October 31, 2016 at 3:48 PM 432 views

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/oct/31/sitting-at-home-on-sickness-benefits-is-bad-for-health-damian-greenHere we go again. Another Tory minister, another proclamation to the Daily Mail reading peanut gallery, reassuring them that it's the same approach. Don't worry, we'll make sure we continue to harass and hassle the least among us so that…

The Peacock Festival

Ghost Whistler / September 25, 2016 at 12:05 PM 342 views

The internet is in so many ways a wonderful resource. Social media likewise offers a truly democratic (advertising notwithstanding) platform for people to be heard. But neither are perfect nor are they free from all the shit humans carry with…

The Measure of a Life

Ghost Whistler / August 24, 2016 at 11:48 AM 370 views

In truth, there is no future.I should have lived a life markedly different and better than how things worked out, and I feel judged everywhere I turn. I feel as if I have to apologise for that life. For not…

Ghost Whistler / July 23, 2016 at 9:39 AM 697 views

That was the subtitle I chose for this collection of thought vomiting I laughably call a blog. It appears to now be complete, since the Cameron years are - almost - over. His arrogance has cost him his job as…

Still Going

Ghost Whistler / June 16, 2016 at 2:54 PM 407 views

I started this blog thinking I could do something useful, provide some decent citizen journalism, or at the very least offer something credible for, at the risk of stroking my own ego, posterity. But in truth I have found it…

Looking For A Job

Ghost Whistler / May 25, 2016 at 3:15 PM 604 views

I've no idea how I'm going to handle full time work, but as there is no way short of a miracle that I will pass another WCA, I have little choice. I'm not even sure of the point of attending…

Top Down Reform of the NHS In Action

Ghost Whistler / May 17, 2016 at 1:30 PM 367 views

No top down reform, that's what the liars in the Tory party said before the collective herd of ignorant ill informed morons that voted for them managed to enable a coalition. Five years later, and a change in the face at…

(This too precedes the resignation of a certain appalling senior Tory...)So I received a letter in respect of my email to the local Tory overlord regarding the plan, now implemented it seems, to cut ESA for those in the WRAG…
