#UniversalCredit being interviewed for RT television on the likely impact of this reform being rolled out at #Christmas . Poverty the media story of our times

Thanks to my book Food Bank Britain, have been invited to share my concerns on Universal Credit which will make a terrible impact on millions this Christmas, for a news programme going out on RT Television  one of a long line of media interviews on this issue.
My point is that the concept of a single welfare payment not unlike a basic universal wage, is a great idea...but here is the catch, this is being imposed at Christmas when most people are in need of fuel to keep warm, the school holidays and all the economic pressures that Christmas puts on families, so to stop people having  any income in December and having to wait until January , is not just a bad idea, in my view is cruel and mean spirited, but then Welfare from this Government long ago moved away from being about help and support for people most in need, to be a punishment  for those  at the bottom of the food chain, although the Mrs May seems to have not noted that some of the hardest hit by this policy will be the self employed and small business the back bone of the UK economy who need people with pounds in their pockets to spend at Christmas, further more, this Gov seem to think that the crises can be addressed and picked up by the only growth from this Gov, Food Banks, which clearly they cannot be expected to feed millions more than the 3 million plus they already do as direct result of Gov ill thought out policy agenda.
My RT Television spot should be on your screens first week December, Will the Gov listen? Clearly not Hate, bashing the poor is very 2017 .
Buy my book, clearly we are going to need the funds it produces to feed ever more people in the coming months.

Kath Duncan Liberty my new play on the struggle 4 civil liberties based on true historical events as published in my new 2B published book #LastQueenOfScotland

When i started my food bank four  years ago, i never thought three  books later i would have spent three years researching  the life of a woman , in my view probably the most important civil rights activist of the past 100 years and shamefully erased almost from history in Scotland and UK.
My book Last Queen of Scotland will be out after Christmas , but my play and this chapter in Kath Duncan life will be published December, so hope you  buy a copy, best £10 you will spend, supports my work and helps restore this amazing woman to her rightful place in history.
I hope every drama , theatre production group across the world will think about performing this play, based on true events that lead to the establishment of The National council of Civil Liberties, that to day we call LIBERTY.
I do find it amazing that more people in the UK no about the USA civil rights movement than the one in their own country, i hope this plays, does Kath and the story justice.
These are the 3 cover designs for the play-Book, which from 1-3 do you think is the most commercial and most likely to buy tickets ore the book ?.
You can direct mail me to order a signed copy ready for Christmas.
Welcome interest from Publishers and Theatre groups looking to perform this play. The first time the story of UK civil rights movement been written .

Barnard Marcus Auctions . Probably the worst Auction house 4 Customer service in UK best stay away

Barnard Marcus Auctions is all that is bad in the property sector, it is so driven by making a fast buck that they will tell you anything to get your cash and then stuff you like a kipper once they got your hard earned cash.
We Care runs a homeless project that buys cheap homes that it does up and rents to homeless charities to help people in crises , however our experience using Barnard Marcus is probably one of the worst examples of a business sector that needs regulation and controls to stop it ripping of its customers big time.
As i write this my Charity  is unable to put a homeless family in a house we bought, because we do not have any keys for access..
The first problem we had was reading the legal pack in which it stated fees would be charged, however despite being told over the phone and in person on the day that we would only be charged £850 including fees, We ended up being charged the Auction fees of £3000 and the other side solicitors another £600.
Having been aware that Barnard Marcus once they get their fee just ignore their  customers, i insisted our solicitors confirmed that the keys location would be clear upon completion.
Surprise Surprise upon completion even though we had been told Barnard Marcus had the keys , once they got our money the access to the property and any attempt to complain was ignored, no one would take our calls, in fact when we did get hold of a person  the phone was just put down, hence the reason i am writing this blog and as a direct result of this company greed and failure to locate the keys a family in housing crises will spend another night on the street , you may think this is a one off, but last year my housing project bought another flat in Liverpool through Barnard Marcus, the same access issues and poor customer service was offered and as this was a flat we could not change the locks as it would be an issue for other people living in the block,  so last Christmas another family we had bought a house to home had to spend Christmas in a shelter because Barnard Marcus failure to insure we had keys for access .
History is repeating itself from the most unpleasant company i find shocking exists in 2017, the £3500 extra they charged us could have furnished the house and helped at least one family have a secure place to call home this Christmas,
Thanks to the terrible service or rather none existent help from Barnard Marcus ,yet again plans to house a family this Christmas blocked by the greed of a company that does not deserve to be in my view in Business. Buying or selling , plenty of Auction houses in UK, find one that actually  gives a toss as clearly  Barnard Marcus Do not.

Yemen the War our media due to Saudi Arabia arms trade, refuses to talk about or challenge the missing civil rights activists kidnapped

My latest article , busy week for my activism & issues I care passionately about
On Monday at 2:45, Hisham Al-Omeisy, a civil rights activist and documenter of Yemen’s often-ignored war, was taken from his family by armed guards loyal to the Houthis. Three years ago these people had swept into Sanaa,

#freeHisham Hisham Al-Omeisy kidnapped 10 days ago whose only crime reporting what is going on in #Yemen

When staying silent on the kidnapping of advocates of peace, is no longer an option #FreeHisham
On Monday at 2:45, Hisham Al-Omeisy , a civil rights activist and documenter of Yemen’s often-ignored war  and voice of Yemen,  was taken from his family by armed  guards loyal to the  Houthis . In 2014, these people swept  into Sanaa, the capital of Yemen,   and overthrew president Abed-Rabbo Mansour Hadi’s internationally recognised Government  and sought to secure military support from Arab Gulf states. 

In March 2015, a Saudi -led coalition , which  have led many to label this war as the Saudi Proxy War,  began a campaign in support of the Government and against the  Houthis , allied with the ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
This conflict has led to over 10,000 civilian deaths and displaced over 3 million people, whilst starvation and cholera are further adding to the country’s misery. Much of this would never have been known without the constant Twitter feed, reporting and criticism of both sides from Hisham.

Samah Hadid , Amnesty,s head of Middle East campaigns , said al-Omeisy’s detention  “illustrates the lengths to which local Houthi-saleh authorities are willing to go to silence activists”. Whilst the Washington Post  newspaper, calling for his release stated, “ What makes Hisham’s detention surprising is that he was critical of the Saudi-led coalition backing the government  of President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who is seeking to oust the rebels from Sanaa and much of the north. 

In recent months , dozens of activists, journalists and lawyers, critical of the rebel Houthi government  have been arrested or vanished into the security shadows. Human rights groups report that many have been tortured or have died in custody.

Hisham Al-Omeisy has been held without charge or a court appearance, in breach of Yemen’s own constitution , which requires anybody arrested to be presented to court within 24 hours.

  This humble man was able to use his social media platform to raise awareness globally of the plight of Yemen. This was necessary because the western media are loath to be critical of the Saudis, who have bombed hospitals and schools with weapons bought from the UK Government and made in the UK.

 Hisham’s reports and films gave a real human insight and built a global awareness, demonstrating a love for his country and country men to his 24,000 Twitter followers.  His ability to speak and communicate in English,  insured he was able to report live from Yemen  exclusively  on the  monthly  Talk Radio  Europe show I was co- hosting with one of the finest broadcasters of her day, Pippa Jones. Due to these broadcasts, many of us became enlightened by his insight and were warmed by his friendship.

Across the world, more people are demanding his release so he can return to his wife and children and carry on reporting in his fair and balanced way on this war that no- one really wants to talk about.  Hisham’s kidnap is a campaign none of us should ignore; staying silent on the kidnapping of this advocate of peace is NOT an option. We can all, from the comfort of our sofa, demand  #FreeHisham  , lobby MPs, take part in radio phone- ins and use our social media to keep his name alive and insure his safe return.

We are all Hisham
