Labour Plan to Make Benefits a “Human Right”
Secret Recording Reveals Plans for Lib-Lab Deal

fabian-wolf-in-sheeps-clothingThis covert recording obtained by Guido – made at the Fabian Society’s recent £100-a-ticket gala – reveals that Labour are planning to enshrine welfare payments as a human right, with plans to extend the Human Rights Act to include ‘economic and social rights’. Essentially enshrining socialism in law. No wonder the symbol of the Fabian Society is a socialist wolf in sheep’s clothing…

The Sun reported the plan which Labour’s Shadow Minister for Scotland, Willie Bain, himself describes as a “scrounger’s charter”. In response Labour put out a statement claiming “The discussion at a Fabian Society event was about methods used abroad, not something the Labour Party is considering as a policy.”  If you listen to the actual recording you will realise that is complete spin:

After admitting it will be a lot easier for Labour to do a deal with Vince Cable he says a Lib-Lab coalition would make welfare benefits a “human right”:

willie-bain“Sadiq asked me to do this and Jon Cruddas is keen on this as well is to look at whether economic and social rights can be put into law. At the moment the human rights act just deals with civil political rights. It needs really careful handling because I think the politics of this would be the Tories would say it’s a scroungers charter, helping skivers….we might just talk about having a commission on it. It might need a commission after the election…that’s something again where there’d be a communality with the Libs.”

Lawyers will love this, welfare reform would be impossible because it would be a “human right”…

          How long can this status quo continue? We have a coalition govt that are basically continuing the policies of new labour.


          • LB says:

            So make it a human right that the right to property is a human right.

            ie. Taxation cannot exceed 20% of income, enshrined in law as a right.

            Then Labour’s got a problem.


          • Labour have got feck all to do with the working class. I can’t stress how irrelevant Labour are to ordinary working people. No one I know in my humble northern town, and I mean no one, will be voting for the Miliband party in ’15.

            The Conservative leadership are too intimidated by the BBC and the Guardian to have the courage of their convictions. If Cameron had the balls to speak up for the people of this country instead of trying to appear ‘nice’ he’d have won the last election by a landslide.

            Which leaves a Farage-sized gap in the political playing field. The Euro election of 2014 is going to be a game-changer…


          • NE Frontiersman says:

            If the Lib Dems have learned anything from coalition – which is open to doubt – surely it must be that they would have had far more influence over events by staying outside government, thus keeping a potential veto over all policy.
            This will be equally true if Labour have no overall majority.
            They’d have had to miss out on all the goodies, of course.


          • Ed Miliband is Crap says:

            Ukip will win the elections in 2014, but won’t win a single seat in 2015. Everybody knows that.

            Voting Ukip in 2014 will send an important message. Voting Ukip in 2015 will be a pointless waste and an invitation to Ed “Twelvety” Balls to destroy this country.

      Agreed. Who the hell is going to pay for all of this? That’s right, the genuine working man, the poor sod who has ended up paying for everything whenever Labour has been in power.

      Labour are like a cricket (or football) selector who can’t make their mind up. We can’t lose anything that we already have, so lets keep the current team. But there aren’t enough ethnics, so lets pick Samit Patel and Ravi Bopara. The team is hideously white, so let’s have Michael Carbery, especially since he is a bloody good batsman. We need more bowlers, so Chris Tremlett, Tim Bresnan, etc. Ultimately they “pick” 30 players and forget that they can only have eleven. So Labour want to spend 3 times more than they have actually got, but can’t decide how to make best use of what they have actually got. And because they can’t decide how to best spend the money that they have they piss it up against the wall so that no-one else can spend it and show how useless they are.

      If Labour were the England cricket selectors picking a team to face the Aussies they would probably pick a club side from Hackney or Tower Hamlets as it would be “fair” and forget that the purpose is to actually win.

        There are a few schmucks left in the UK who think they are producing and contributing to a traditional economy, but the truth is the economy of the UK is supported in large part by uncontrolled borrowing on the international markets and QE (money printing / accounting fraud).

        Until the economy is fixed properly – which will require full separation from the EU and a proper recession (correction in housing market in particular) / cleaning out of the trash who are distorting things at present, then the current zombie status quo will continue to lurch on.

        NB: The zombie becomes more rotten as time passes.

    With LibDem and Labour already doing backstreet deals perhaps the sooner UKIP and the Tories complete the same to target marginal or other LibDem / Labour seats and strengthen their own marginals with just the one candidate the better.
    Otherwise after 2015 with Labour leading a LibDem / Labour / Unite coalition in power you can kiss your country goodbye forever.

    Employment ,they can work for free, create proper work schemes,instead of just pelting our money at failed private agencies .Housing ,why build more when we can Force a Bedroom Tax on them and let them do our job for us .Gag the Media ,Gag the surfs and we’ll get away with it,just tell more lies.

        Human rights should be based on what makes life liveable. Decent homes. Good education. Good health provision.
        We should have a basic financial limit as to what is a liveable income for a household. When households fall below that level, then that is when welfare should kick in.
        I would suggest the limit as what ever is average household income at that time. So if the average household income is £21500, then any household falling below that figure would receive welfare to make up the gap.
        As for UKIP. they oppose human rights and workers rights and maternity rights. All said by farage. UKIP are different. They are so far right they make the Tories look lika angels.

          103 Anon. Slight arithmetical problem here: let’s take your £21,500 figure, and assume you’re right that that is ‘the average household income’. Grant ‘welfare’ to those who fall ‘below that figure’ to ‘make up the gap’, and where does ‘average household income’ go? I’ll make it easy: will ‘average household income’ go down, or go up?
          I think I know in which direction the ‘average’ will move, but, surely, in whatsoever direction the ‘average’ moves, your proposal will move it both further and faster.
          Let’s assume that the ‘average’ is moved upwards by your proposal: this will need money (‘to make up the gap’). Fairly obviously, that money cannot come from those who ‘fall below that figure’, as that would keep them in the same position (‘Here’s £1,500 to bring your household income up to the average: unfortunately, this will cost you £1,500, in order to fund the supplement.’) In practice, of course, the £1,500 ‘re-distributed’ would incur administrative costs – 5%? – 10%??
          So, ‘making up the gap’ will be a costly exercise (£1,500 + admin.). Who’s going to pay for that? Plainly, not those already below the £21,500 level, as we’ve already seen. So, presumably, the money needed ‘to make up the gap’ will have to come from those above the ‘average household income’. Fine, ‘the rich help the poor in this life…’, and someone whose household income is far above that £21,500, could – perhaps should – be encouraged to help those with far less: besides, someone whose ‘household income’ is, say, £215,500 will hardly be impoverished by handing over £1,500 – he probably pays his Accountant more than this! But, of course, the Admin. costs of dealing with this transfer of funds will be considerable.
          But what about those whose ‘household income’ is only a trifle above that £21,500: are they to be brought down to below that figure, to help pay for those initially below it? Does it really make sense to make a few rich people a bit poorer, and several comfortably-off people uncomfortable, in order vainly to attempt to rig the Mathematics? After all, a mean, or average, is based on finding the mid-point between the extremes, and ‘doctoring’ the figures by increasing one, will merely move that average/mean in the same direction.
          But, perhaps, there really is a ‘money-tree’, and it’s just that many of us are so blinded that we cannot see it.

            The recent change over / coup in Egypt reminded me to revisit the Wiki section concerning the same happening many many moons ago in Fiji. There, the local indigenous population of born and bred Fijians realised they were being ruled by the influx of Indians and Indo-Fijians introduce earlier by the British government despite the guests being a minority.
            Eventually the army, one of the last bastions for indigenous Fijians instigated a coup to reverse the trend. Coups have then been occurring back and forth to try to establish a compromise but the net result would appear that the Indian / Indo Fijian percentage of their population is reducing.
            No, I do not wish the same to happen to the UK but with politicians having more interest in foreign affairs and more support for immigrants than its own indigenous population, stranger things could happen.
            With UK police standing back from the recent City rioting [predominantly being done by a ‘guest’ group of locals running riot] I wonder how they would react should the last straw that breaks the camel’s back situation be instigated by an indeginous population revolution?

    This plan would not work in practice.

    It was tried in the old Communist bloc, and didn’t work out there.

    If such b/s was brought in under the human rights trojan, then what would happen next is that rights would be made contingent upon party membership.

    In the old Communist bloc, if you lost your party membership you would lose access to all state benefits / access to employment.

    If ‘benefits’ became a human right then when the money ran out to pay for them the government have no other option than to withdraw human rights from people in order to reduce their cost. Anybody who expressed dissent as the system began to fail would similarly find themselves excluded.

    The path being discussed should not happen, however is an exceptionally dangerous one to contemplate – Irrespective of how reasonable the argument in support of it is put now.

      “To each according to need, from each according to ability.”

      In a real Socialist society, and not a mixed-economy society in process of being dismantled, believe me, it is never the worker who gets to determine need and ability.

      Common sense tells you mostly everyone’s going to try to get the most they can for as little as they can expend in obtaining it. And no moral suasion is going to change that. Yeah, sure, New Soviet Man– how did that one work out?

      At least the capitalist boss was being honest about it: “I’ll hire you for as cheaply as you’re willing to work, and squeeze as much work out of you as I can.” He was trying to get the most he could for as little as he could expend, and no homilies on sacrifice for the greater good. At least with the old Robber Baron, you knew where you stood: Hobson’s Choice, of work for Lord Moneybags or not at all, and need to come up with some other means of sustenance if you quit your employment. You might have to resort to petty crime, and you might end up in the workhouse.

      In a socialist country, that would become Hobbes’s Choice– a life solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short. There is no other Lord Moneybags to hire you, and you won’t be allowed to emigrate. At best, you’d be sectioned and kept in the laughing academy, as your actions in opposing the State would clearly indicate insanity. At worst, you would be considered a traitor of sorts and would end up serving a slave labour sentence for subversion.

          When he’s not engaged in personal vituperation against other posters, BW can actually make a point or two, especially against the legal/judicial system (the latter word of which I’m sure he would lampoon with an alternate spelling). If his point is that the tribe of Judah has influence beyond its numbers, this has never been a secret. It is the attribution of ulterior motive to their being in such positions as they are, insinuations of their having reached those positions uncompetitively (as neutral a word as I can right this moment come up with), and allegations of their serving some purpose which is at odds with the good of the greater society, that I find disconcerting, if his point is that it is they and they alone who are the “conspiracy” to be forewarned and forearmed against. One could, with roughly equal justice, say the same about the old boys of certain schools (*ahem*Eton*ahem*).

          Incidentally, Cat, there are those who claim it is as unreasonable/irrational to believe that every occurrence is completely random and can never be the result of concerted effort on the part of more than one person to bring it about, as it is to believe that everything is interconnected in some way cabalistically. For those in the peanut gallery, that means, sometimes shit happens, and some other times shit happens on purpose, and wisdom is being able to know the difference, and to be able to distinguish act from omission, malice from negligence, and cart from horse in terms of which preceded what in the hierarchy. It may take a brighter mind than I have, or anyone else has, to get it right every single time.

          There has always been the joke that there is all one big diabolical conspiracy to convince us (as the Devil attempts to do in his own cause), that conspiracies do not exist. This is a misnomer, as there are as many conspiracies to convince us that conspiracies don’t exist, as there are conspiracies that DO exist, you’d have to figure.


          • A tyre factory on fire has a considerable drawback. The fire-fighters have difficulty in seeing where the problem is due to the rancid black smoke spewing out.

            Your words: When he’s not engaged in personal vituperation against other posters… says it all in terms of damaging BW’s message, which you have seen and, I fear, I have not, at least in the same way.

            I have posted enough times here that most sentient beings will know that I claim that all sectors of public service have become grossly contaminated. So in a way, BW is being grossly selective in my view. Sort that out and there is still a Herculean task left.

            If he cannot engage with that idea then he has a rude awakening, however successful he may be in vanquishing his foes.


          • Tay King-dePisse says:

            Ya go with wot ya know, Cat. My suspicion is that BW was some sort of idealistic activist for some ostensibly worthwhile cause, at one time, and one who felt that raising the issue was not enough, and got into the game of attempting to enforce whatever the law was on that issue, only to discover, to his horror, what a cynical game it all was, the only winners of which were the lawyers. Sort of like the elderly commodity broker brothers in Trading Places: “Some people make money in commodities, some lose money– we don’t care who does what, we’re getting our commission either way.” Same with the wigs and their fees. And there may have been a, shall we say, “demographic bulge” in the public-interest-law sector of the legal profession. (You are welcome to confirm this hunch of mine or not, BW.)

            One is put in mind of the old joke about the Wild West, that so long as there was only one lawyer in a town, he was the poorest man in that town, but as soon as another moved in, the two of them became the richest men in town.

She claims that “there was huge government pressure, because the government hated the idea that a regulator would criticise it”. Damningly, she revealed that this political pressure peaked under current shadow health secretary’s Andy Burnham’s tenure as secretary of state. This is why Labour turned down 81 separate requests for a public inquiry into the Mid Staffs scandal.”

    Nigeria Islamists hit schools to destroy Western ideas

    Most of the teachers and pupils had fled, but some students, one teacher and headmaster Adanu Haruna were still in the compound, one of many rural boarding schools in Nigeria surrounded by forest and farmland.

    “They made the students line up and strip naked, then they made the ones with pubic hair lie face down on the ground,” Haruna said, eyes wide with horror at describing the attack on the iron-roofed school built by British colonisers in the 1950s.

    “They shot them point blank then set the bodies on fire.”

    The Mamudo government school, charred and smelling of scorched blood after 22 students and a teacher were killed there in the July 6 attack near Potiskum in Nigeria’s northeast, was the fourth to be targeted by suspected Boko Haram militants in less than a month.

        You started talking about MP, not me. I had a look and the most recent was several weeks old. So don’t DYOR on me thank you very much, especially as I put my links in as a courtesy to my readers (see above).

        Presumably you found whatever she was saying too rabbinical for you on a Sunday? Still, at least you are not in Golders Green, with all those ZZ Top lookalikes recounting their most recent visit to the Wailing Wall. I am surprised that Rabbi Chaim Gunnar Kutsher-Dickov hasn’t come along and metaphorically bitten you on the arse!

        I have been working all today and occasionally switching laptop on to see what is happening. If BW can’t be arsed to do a bitly or a tinyurl, then I am not going to take him seriously.

        We probably all encounter journos who we know talk some sense but there is some impediment, stylistic or logically problematic, in there work which keeps us at arm’s length. I can name dozens of them and MP would certainly fit into that category. At times, you think they are absolutely spot on and at others you groan.

        People are going to think that about you and myself too. Since I write what I think (sometimes mischievously or ironically), I have to accept that others are doing the same.

        Criticism is not, and should not be, a problem for anyone. It is unsatisfactory IMHO to denigrate someone without giving some sort of signpost as to why you hold that view.

        I had already seen that article. Has anyone noticed it is dated 22 July when today is only 14 July? Bastille day. Very strange.

        I have no problem with people hiding their sources when someone’s ID needs protecting, but public forum stuff? C’mon! (That is not a dig against you BTW.)

        Not convinced by her argument here but neither was I convinced by Netanyahu’s last speech at the General Assembly which was dumbed down to the nth degree with his utterly ridiculous graphic.

        Herein lies a problem as my sympathies are with the people rather than with their politicos who, increasingly nowadays, have to play a faux hand. I think you are saying this is all about audiences. That is the modern style, certainly. It mostly brings no answers.

        But I have met these people on their turf. I imagine that our friend has not. I have also met all their neighbours. Again…

        Both have pleasant and decent people in their populations but only one runs an efficient modern civil and democratic state.

        Would we wish Egypt’s or Iraq’s fate upon them. Not from my point of view.

        @NBW 9:24 pm

        I think you can understand my issues with BW over ambiguity. Laziness does not help one’s message.

        Would not any reasonable person argue thus: If I were Israel, how would I react in the circumstances and given recent history. Of course, our friend is not interested in history so could not follow the argument or know about the series of wars started by Israel’s neighbours. Santayana spoke most eloquently on this but unfortunately is mostly misquoted.

        My take is that she is 90% factually correct here. Maybe more. How much blood must a nation allow to be shed to convince people it has a case?

        I have admitted elsewhere here that Farage has been more perceptive than I have on other topics.

        However, he is not infallible. Nor are any of us, me included.

        On this issue, I sincerely believe he is mistaken.

        Look at the Realpolitik here. He is making inroads into Labour territory. He hardly wants to undo that gain. Hence this argument. Prove me wrong.

        It would perhaps be better for government to ban the filling of cigarette packets with cigarettes, rather than messing with the labels.

        People would stop buying empty packets fairly quickly, and without cigarettes available the number of those who would give up would increase dramatically.

        This plan has probably been seriously discussed at high levels before, however, for some reason rejected as good policy.

    They are dividing and conquering this country and turning people against each other.

    The Tories are in the act of deliberately running the NHS down, as they privatise it.

    Now we have the abandonment of the plain packaging policy on cigarettes, no doubt closely followed by the dropping of the minimum alcohol policy.

    with the many who have died so far in going through the welfare reform the government have been lucky that these deaths keep being swept under the carpet

    however you would have to be a most remarkable government to keep these deaths quite for ever and there will be a time when justice will need to be served on those responsible for the errors that have led to the many hundreds that have died so far

    as for when that day of judgement will come is anyone’s guess but it will come that you all can be assured of

    BBC headline: “NHS failings ‘being suppressed'”. Present tense, ffs!

    Of course the actual story (bbc news, health) is about the period of Labour’s slaughter in 2005 – 10, though the full text is a classic fudge, beginning with more dissembling bollocks such as “ministers have suppressed details of NHS failings to avoid losing votes”.

    Look over there Andy? Crosby is ‘avin a fag and he is using a shalegas lighter. By tapping into the pc bollox like smoking & environment then maybe no one will notice that Labour have turned the NHS into death camps.

    The media treat us like fools with scapegoat electricks like this:

    How much of that squandered lake of North Sea oil benefited the average UK citizen?
    Now they are about to pull the same trick with shale gas. charging us TRIPLE for what we own already, enriching the Multinationals but impoverishing the citizen.
    It may seem strange, but many residents of oil rich countries of the world already have a sort of guaranteed national wage (or soft job) irrespective of personal circumstances, which is in effect a sort of universal benefit.
    Is it not always the case that the people who are most scared of true equality are those who know they own more than to which they are entitled?
