Tory MP says disabled tweeters should have benefits cut!

Postby Miss Ben E Fit » Sat Oct 02, 2010 9:31 am

Nadine Dorries, the Conservative MP for Mid Bedfordshire, on Thursday urged her blog readers to report to the Department of Work and Pensions people who tweet more than 50 times a day and claim benefits. She had apparently being told of a tweeter who has posted 34,500 times in a few months. This tweeter is Humphrey Cushion, who is disabled through arthritis, yet does not qualify for Disability Living Allowance. She had to give up work as a home carer, as she is currently on a waiting list for two foot operations.

"Is there such a thing as Twitter addiction? How can anyone live a normal life who can do that? Surely these people cannot be in employment because if they are, how can they work? if they aren't then it's time they got a job which involves being sat at a key board because there's nothing much up with their fingers, brain or attention span!!

I wonder if very soon someone is going to identify a Twitter syndrome and we get to read about people who have become compulsive Tweeters. Will we hear stories of people who Tweet, oh I don't know, say 50 times a day and need to go into re-hab?

I will put money on that being a Daily Mail story one day. In the meantime, do you know of anyone else who has Tweeted more than 35,000 times in less than six months? If so, email my office and let me know. Or, better still, if it's someone you know is on benefits, contact the DWP."

Following the Twitter outcry, Dorries responded with another blogpost, in which she writes that she has no problem with disabled people using the internet to chat to friends, but has an issue with people who:

"... Twitter all day, every day about claiming disability benefit in one tweet whist arranging a night out in the pub in the next. If you tweet about claiming six months rent from the social fund whilst tweeting how bad your hangover is and if you stride into political meetings and shout the odds with energy and enthusiasm with no sign of any physical disability and if you claim to work for the Labour party and write porn at the same time as claiming your disability benefit – then don't expect someone like me not to a) inform the authorities and b) tell you to get off your Twitter and get a job."

From the Sunday Times May 9th 2010

NADINE DORRIES, the Conservative MP, faces the first expenses complaint of the new parliament after a row about a £10,000 claim she paid to a friend’s company. Her former Commons researcher, Peter Hand, is writing to John Lyon, the parliamentary commissioner for standards, questioning whether the claim can be justified

From Telegraph Feb 6th 2010

Now a high-profile Conservative backbencher has been caught cheating in a social experiment designed to help MPs understand how poorer sections of society live.

Nadine Dorries, MP for Mid Bedfordshire, is one of five politicians who agreed to be filmed living with families on council estates for a Channel 4 reality television show.
The politicians are asked to survive for a week while spending no more than £64.30 - a week's job seekers' allowance.

"I know what I have to live on," the 52-year-old MP tells the cameras as she begins her stint. "Of course I do. I wouldn't be much of an MP if I didn't, to be honest."

However, after spending only one night in the flat it emerges that she has broken the rules by hiding a £50 note down her bra.

Thx for bringing this to our attention Ms Ben E Fit. This M.P is clearly a right-wing f*ckwit of the worst order. There is of course no comparison with occasionally "perking up" with online posts -and the constant vigilance and concentration demanded by a job -however "sedentary".

Tory MP says disabled tweeters should have benefits cut

there should be but they will probably mess it up as usual. if they cant update murdrer incs in 3 tries what chance they have in merging servers?

Долголетия можно легко достичь, придерживаясь 4 главных правил по жизни. Так, вы можете без лишних усилий насладиться еще 28 годами жизни. Хронические стрессы нарушают работу ЦНС, а она регулирует функции всего организма. Так что разрушьте постоянный источник адреналина и научитесь на любые нервные ситуации реагировать ровно. Разновидность стресса - не только недосып, но и сон, несогласованный с биоритмами организма. По факту, где-то с 20:00 и до 01:00 усиленно вырабатывается мелатонин - гормон, регулирующий работу головного мозга, иммунной, эндокринной и сердечно-сосудистой систем, работающий как антиоксидант и тормозящий старение клеток. Но вырабатывается он при условии, что человек состоит в это время не в освещенном офисе или в фитнес-комплексе, а в темноте – чего можно достичь, только отойдя ко сну в комнате с зашторенными окнами.

Что касается питания, то 75% рациона должна вмещать растительная пища (овощи, зелень, фрукты, каши из цельного зерна), 25% - белки, в том числе кисломолочные продукты (в их числе - 200 мл кефира или йогурта, в идеале - произведенных собственноручно или хотя бы без стабилизаторов и красителей в составе). Кисломолочные продукты обеспечивают баланс микрофлоры в кишечнике, а это залог того, что все органы функционируют слаженно, без ошибок работает иммунитет, полноценно усваивается пища, и как следствие – нет места болезням. Принимать пищу необходимо в 4-5 приемов. Тогда нагрузка на пищеварительные органы будет более равномерной, уровень глюкозы в крови - стабильным, а это обеспечит слаженную работу мозга и ЖКТ и продлит жизнь. Не допускайте переутомления и не нагружайтесь в
помещении - работа мышц (в том числе при зарядке) должна проходить на свежем воздухе.

Иначе протекает переключение на бескислородную выработку энергии, и в организме появляется избыток молочной кислоты, недоокисленных продуктов обмена веществ. И человек становится уязвимым перед вирусами, бактериями, в той или иной мере нарушаются функции органов. В человеке от природы заложена потребность в поиске смысла жизни. Совершенствование души и сознания содействуют поискам и становятся их следствием. Отсутствие служения семье, другим людям лишает радости и лет не прибавляет.
