Riot Victims ‘Failed by PM and Mayor’

Riot Victims ‘Failed by PM and Mayor’

Labour has accused David Cameron and Boris Johnson of breaking promises to more than 130 victims of the London riots who have made compensation claims but are yet to receive a single penny.

The Opposition said of all the claims, less than 16% of the requested cash has been paid out more than two years after violence and looting broke out across the capital.

Shadow home office minister Steve Reed, who uncovered the figures through freedom of information requests to the police, claimed  the riot victims felt “abandoned and ignored by the Government and the Mayor of London”.

“With the eyes of the country on him, David Cameron promised the victims of the riots they would not be forgotten and would not be left out of pocket,” he said. read more

Angry Flood Victims Confront David Cameron

Angry Flood Victims Confront David Cameron

David Cameron has been confronted by angry residents who told him they had been “abandoned” after the Christmas storm left their village flooded.

The Prime Minister was told that more must be done to tackle the problems with flooding as he visited the village of Yalding in Kent, where 100 homes had to be evacuated over Christmas.

Erica Olivares said she had been without power since Monday and when she and others had tried to contact their local council for help as the floodwaters rose they had been unable to get through as staff had “decided to go on their holidays”.

During his visit, Mr Cameron had asked Ms Olivares what she needed and encouraged her to contact her council before she responded that she had tried. read more

First Day of The G8 Summit

First Day of The G8 Summit

First day of the G8 summit Is expected to focus on the following aspects

The Group of Eight will bring together heads of state from United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, Italy, France, and Russia. Local authorities expect around 2,000 anti-capitalist protestors at a march scheduled for Monday. Protests are by no means unexpected at the talks, and a police force of 8,000 will guard the fenced-in golf resort.

But more important than the crowd-repelling water cannons available to the guarding force will be the diplomatic shotguns with which the congregated leaders will attempt to hit the topics of discussion as they go whizzing by. UK Prime Minister David Cameron, the host of this year’s summit, set the agenda of the meeting to focus on the alliterative topics of trade, taxes, and transparency. The topics of taxes and transparency, both aimed at corporations and financial reporting, will more or less manifest themselves as one cohesive issue. Stepping up to fill the topical triad will be a completely unrelated international situation — that of the conflict in Syria. read more

The plan will be to limit ways how immigrants will be able to access the benefits system. This will include access to free healthcare from the NHS housing
