Amber Rudd only won her seat by 346 votes!!

The Home Secretary only won her seat of Hastings and Rye by 346 votes after a recount.

The top job in the Conservative party could be available very soon.

Amber Rudd run a very bad election campaign.

In 2015, When asked why she wanted to be MP for Hastings she said “I wanted to be within two hours of London and I could see we were going to win it!”

In 2017 Amber Rudd was asked the average price of a house in Hastings and she said….

In public Amber Rudd has said she supports Theresa May, 100%

But in the last few weeks Amber Rudd has employed Lynton Keith Crosby!?

Thinking there might be a snap election, the Home Secretary has placed adverts for help to spread her message in Hastings on Saturday 21st October, she advertised for paid support to show Hastings how popular she is, on facebook and online.

Amber Rudd has paid for people to come down to her seat from London and Oxford!!!

And it turns out one of her top supporters coming to Hastings, from Oxford University, George Wright, , posted this on facebook….

Good luck and keep it real in Hastings






In today’s (28/04/17) Sun newspaper editorial, the paper attacked our NHS and in doing so revealed how it would like to see the NHS run, after a possible Theresa May landslide General election victory.

The Sun is owned by Worldwide media billionaire Rupert Murdoch, who owns 3 national newspapers and is currently trying to get full control of UK Sky TV.He has massive power and influence over the Conservative party.  Mr Murdoch also helps the Conservative party plant it’s agenda in his flagship newspaper The Sun, read by over 1,666,715m readers.

So today’s editorial comes as no surprise to many from the left. As many people fear that the Tory agenda of destroying our National Health service by running it to the ground, selling it off to the highest bidder and bringing in charges for patients, will become a reality, if Theresa May wins on 8th June.

2016 has been an awful year for so many reasons. But today this was posted on FaceBook.


From Northumbria police

Our Firearms Support Unit (FSU) have been taking in the fantastic atmosphere of Newcastle’s Christmas market this morning.
It may be a bit chilly out and about but there have been a lot of smiley faces with there being just two more Fridays until Christmas!
Don’t be alarmed if you do see our armed officers, they are there purely for reassurance and to make people feel safe.
These patrols have begun following the announcement from the Home Office last year that armed patrols would be stepped up across the country.
Our FSU officers are just regular police at the end of the day and if you have any concerns make sure you go and have a chat.



The chancellor will unveil in the autumn statement, that the National living wage will rise to £7.50 an hour in 2017. He will use this announcement to feed into the spin that the government are on the side of the “just about managing” – or “Jams”.

But according to forecasts by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), an advisory public body established by the UK government to provide independent economic forecasts, the National living wage should go up to £7.60 in 2017, if it is to reach the government pledge of £9.00 an hour by 2020.

So Philip Hammond is in fact making a cut to the lowest paid workers wages by 10p an hour.



On Saturday 22nd October Hastings Supports Refugees are holding a food donation day in support of refugees in Calais and the local Hastings Food Bank. A tiny neo-Nazi group from Portsmouth called South Coast Resistance (also known as “Pie and Mash”) have said they are coming to Hastings on that day to demonstrate against refugees.

Hastings is in the parliamentary seat of Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who has been caught up in a backlash against her, after she announced, at the Conservative party conference, that all businesses in the UK would have make a list of all foreign employees. Amber Rudd has now backtracked on the idea, after it was compared to Nazi party policies.

This is why Saturday has become such a symbolic day for many, to show they reject the politics of hate and this is not how we want Post-Brexit Britain to be.

Local group Hastings Solidarity and Hastings Momentum have put a URGENT CALL-OUT.

Hastings solidarity statement said: ‘Come down to Hastings town centre near Debenhams this Saturday to show the world what solidarity looks like. 

Please share this call out as widely as possible – bring friends, family, comrades, neighbours, workmates. We need to have as many people out as possible.

Join us in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who come here from across the sea as refugees fleeing war and terror – and with our friends and family here in our community who are suffering the effects of the government’s class war austerity measures, declining wages and homelessness. 

Bring flags, banners, signs and food to donate. Come and stand with us and show some Hastings hospitality!

There is a role for everyone on Saturday – whether you’re happy to wave a sign or help with the donations, hand out leaflets and talk to passers-by, or get involved in physically defending our town from Fascists. Please be there.’

Since last September when Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour party by the largest percentage of votes in the party’s history.

The Left-wing mainstream Newspapers  the Guardian and Daily Mirror have been luke warm at best towards Jeremy Corbyn and his mandate from Labour members to move the direction of the party back to its roots, to be more democratic and move away from the ideas of ‘New’ Labour.

Last month, in the aftermath and chaos of the UK public voting to leave the EU.’New’ Labour MP’s seized their moment to try and trigger a coup against Mr Corbyn. He caught wind of the plot and sacked the ring leader Hilary Benn.

We all know what followed Shadow Cabinet Ministers resigning, 172 MP’s voting for a motion of no confidence in the Leader, 10,000’s holding rallys across the Country in support of Corbyn, over 200,000 new members, Chilcot, the Trade Unions backing Corbyn and a Leadership challege..

So how have the two main left-wing newpapers in the Country, chosen to refect this historic battle for the soul of the Labour movement?

This was the Daily Mirror’s advice to Jeremy Corbyn last week…

Both The Guardian and Daily Mirror’s editorial line that ‘ Jeremy Corbyn should step down’ goes against their own research that shows their readership do not agree with them.

Today after weeks of inaction Angela Eagle is set to announce that she will force a Leadership race with or maybe without Jeremy Corbyn on the ballot paper.

Here is how Today’s Guardian ‘report’ it..

And Daily Mirror


30th June 2016


” United we stand, divided we fall is one of the oldest and truest slogans of the labour movement.

After last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is split.

The Government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.

Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the Government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the Government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes.

To do that we need to stand together. Since I was elected leader of our party nine months ago, we have repeatedly defeated the Government over its attacks on living standards. Last month, Labour become the largest party in the local elections. In Thursday’s referendum, a narrow majority voted to leave, but two thirds of Labour supporters backed our call for a Remain vote.

I was elected leader of our party, for a new kind of politics, by 60% of Labour members and supporters.  The need for that different approach now is greater than ever.

Our people need Labour Party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite. As leader it is my continued commitment to dedicate our party’s activity to that goal.”



Jeremy corbyn issued the following statement, after 172 Labour MPs supported a motion of ‘No Confidence’ in his leadership.

“In the aftermath of last week’s referendum, our country faces major challenges. Risks to the economy and living standards are growing. The public is divided.

The government is in disarray. Ministers have made it clear they have no exit plan, but are determined to make working people pay with a new round of cuts and tax rises.

Last month, Labour become the largest party in the local elections. In Thursday’s referendum, a narrow majority voted to leave, but two thirds of Labour supporters backed our call for a remain vote.

I was democratically elected leader of our party for a new kind of politics by 60% of Labour members and supporters, and I will not betray them by resigning. Today’s vote by MPs has no constitutional legitimacy.

We are a democratic party, with a clear constitution. Our people need Labour party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite behind my leadership at a critical time for our country.”




On 26th Aug, a member of Love Kitchen, Hastings, was contacted by Hastings Council, who  two and a half months ago tried to shut down Love Kitchen. But backed down after a petition, protest, media and social media campaign.The council have now said if Love kitchen do not get a food operator licence, insurance etc. It will be shut down. Just as winter is coming!

On Sunday 28th June Love Kitchen Hastings, a group of Hastings residents, inspired by Love Activists London, to feed and clothe Homeless people, were told that their regular weekly stall in Hastings town centre must stop!

Chris Oliver, founding member of Love Kitchen has been in conversation with Hastings Council over the last few week. Chris said; ” At first they wanted to move us down into an alleyway where we “would not be seen” . I negotiated with them to use the upper circle outside Poundstretcher. Today they turned up and told us that if we continued we could face prosecution as we did not have a Street Trading Licence. They then said we would not receive one anyway. They said that we were also breaking food safety laws but have not explained exactly what is required. If we get shutdown then I fear that many regulars will not eat on Sunday. It has been referred to as Suicide Sunday which is why we come out this day.”

Love Kitchen, Hastings was set up by local people in February 2015, after being inspired by Love Activists, London, who over Christmas 2014 occupied a bank in the heart of the West-End of London, to shelter, feed and clothe Homeless people and highlight the growing issue of poverity.

Many people all over the UK have also  set up Love Kitchens.Brighton Love Kitchen is in the heart of the city and has not been stopped.


Love Activists London

Love Kitchen member Zeeta Mcbrine
Said : ”  I am just shocked at the lack of compassion and support the council have given us. We are all human and need the same basic things to survive in this world. Hastings council have already let these people down by allowing the system to discard them onto the streets. The council have a duty of care and they have failed each and every one of the people whom come to us, it is now the communities chance to succeed where the council had failed.

There are many Love Kitchens around the UK that are fully supported by their local councils and I cannot see any reason other than ignorance as to why Hastings Council have taken this unfair and unwarranted decision to close us down and threaten us with prosecution. ”

Anton Burton on Hastings Council’s decision said: ”  As the organiser of the St Leonard’s street market on kings road I can assure you that you do not need a street trading consent to give away clothes as long as you are not charging, although you may be required to have public liability insurance, there are issues with food but nothing that cannot be easily worked towards.”

Hastings Council have so far failed to respond to questions or comment on the ban.

When asked why the action by Hastings Council to shut Love Kitchen down should matter to people, Chris Oliver said : ” It would be difficult to count everyone it has helped. The people that come up to the table have welcomed the support and some cases come up for the chance to be treated like a human for once. Just being spoken to and listened to as normal person is something that many miss out on.”

Please support Love Kitchen, Hastings and help change Hastings Council mind.

It has been over four days since Hastings Council tried to close down Love Kitchen, a group of people giving free clothing, support and food to Homeless people and anyone who needs help, since February.

The response from people across the World has been overwhelming.

People have spread the #Love from local residents to Focus E15 to Artist Taxi driver to a Homeless person in Scotland.

Over 1000 people signed the petition in 3 days.

Mainstream media have started to catch up.

This has forced Hastings Council to send out an internel Email to all Council workers and reads…

Dear colleagues,
>As at least some of you are aware, there has been
considerable social media in the last couple of days about the ‘Love Kitchen’,
and our involvement with it..
>Please find below our statement on this :-

>The ‘Love Kitchen’, Wellington Place, Hastings
>Hastings Borough Council is
committed to working with, and for, its most vulnerable residents.
>It has been aware for some time about the operation of the ‘Love Kitchen’, a voluntary operation which provides food, drink and other help to homeless people and other vulnerable people in Hastings. It is keen to work with the Love Kitchen to ensure that both organisations’ aims can be met.
>Although the Love Kitchen is not selling goods, and so doesn’t need a street trading licence, food hygiene laws still apply irrespective of whether food is sold, or given away. We certainly wouldn’t expect vulnerable people to be served food which did not meet food hygiene standards, and we have advised the operators of the Love Kitchen to register their operation with Rother District Council, where they are based. This is simply to provide protection to those who are receiving
the food, ensuring it is safely prepared, stored, displayed and served.
>We must refute any suggestion or implication that we somehow don’t care for, or provide help for, homeless and other vulnerable people here.
>The council pays the Seaview project locally for an outreach worker to work with and support members of the street community, the homeless people who sleep on the streets of Hastings. We have also provided funding to pilot a street outreach activities programme operating out of the Seaview Centre
>The Council has also provided funding for a drug and alcohol outreach worker, which proved successful and is now funded by the Hastings & Rother Clinical Commissioning Group (‘CCG’), part of the NHS.
>Members of the council’s housing options team attend weekly multi agency drop in sessions at Seaview and are working with the CCG to provide additional support to members of the street community.

>And we are part of a Sussex-wide working group that is coordinating efforts to address rough sleeping across the county. Government funding has been obtained over the last three years to provide a rough sleepers outreach service and to improve joint working and information sharing across all statutory and voluntary organisations who seek to prevent homelessness and rough sleeping. In 2014/15 the Council and partners assisted 64 single homeless people off the street and into suitable accommodation.
>Because we do try and encourage a
joined-up approach with other organisations, we would be very keen to help find partners with whom the Love Kitchen can work, rather than it operating in some isolation, as it does now.
>In conclusion, Hastings Borough Council does alot of work to support its most vulnerable residents, and is happy to work with the Love Kitchen to identify a suitable location that they can work from, and is properly licensed and regulated. We also encourage them to work through established local charities working with homeless people.

There are many things to say about this Email.

But the most shocking thing is that since Sunday the Council have not contacted Love Kitchen.

Please carry on spreading the Love💖
