MAKE SOME NOISE

If you can’t make it to any of the demonstrations on the day, then why not motivate discussion about the shocking state of homelessness in the UK and abroad. Remember: Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social media sites are all good strategies for getting the message across. Why not email your local MP?

PETITION WARWICK DISTRICT COUNCIL

Join this local petition on change.org made by Leamington Claimants Union to Warwick District Council. We asked the council to: “Be Aware of your Duty of Care to the Homeless and Vulnerably Housed.” This is a petition to ask Warwick District Council to either abolish the Spare Bedroom Tax and the Council Tax for benefit claimants in the Warwick District area (they are, after all, totally draconian stealth taxes) – or – Set up a Night Shelter.* Follow the link below to SIGN THE PETITION…

#NoMoreDeathOnOurStreets

 

*In Warwick District, if you are homeless, there are a few services which may be able to help you: A Night Shelter for two nights a week – Wednesday & Sunday nights – Radford Road Methodist Church – Run by volunteers. Rough Sleeper Outreach Team – Run by Midland Heart and the Way Ahead Project – Street Homeless support – Run by Salvation Army. THERE IS CURRENTLY NO NIGHT SHELTER OPERATING ALL WEEK.

Shall the British Prime Minister Please Stand Up?

What a shame there are so few comedians who can impersonate David Cameron! (does anyone remember Mike Yarwood regularly taking off a few of our members of parliament every Saturday night?). I’m sure that a lot of us remember that during the 70s & 80s we had so many of our MPs lampooned in the media – who could forget Spitting Image?

It seems that satire’s being suppressed in the mainstream right now – which is odd, considering we are supposed to have a free and unbiased media (yeah, right!).

Anyway, here’s a little clip we found on YouTube (and were searching for more, so send in your funnies!)
