HOME SECRETARY AMBER RUDD FACES ALLEGATIONS IN TORY ELECTION FRAUD

HOME SECRETARY AMBER RUDD FACES ALLEGATION IN TORY ELECTION EXPENSES SCANDAL.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd, MP for Hastings and Rye is facing two allegation of failing to declare election expenses in the last General election.

It was reported in the national press that Ms Rudd used a local version of national online advertisements designed by ad firm M&C Saatchi, but failed to declare the ad in her election spending returns.

Ms Rudd posted a version of the same ad on her YouTube page on March 29, 2015, with the slogan changed from ‘Recovering Economy: Don’t Let Labour Wreck It’ to ‘Unemployment down by 1,921 in Hastings and Rye since 2010.’

B heard media have learnt that a controversial wraparound advert that appeared on the front page of the local newpaper, the Hastings Observer, just a week before the General election was paid for by the Conservative party national election campaign despite being aimed directly at local voters.

The Crown Prosecution service must decide in the next few weeks if anyone should face criminal charges over the Tory election expenses scandal.

Now with the announcement that banking whistleblower Nicholas Wilson will stand as an Independent candidate against Amber Rudd, in her constituency of Hastings and Rye, in the general election. The hope is that the media will be forced to focus on the alleged election fraud.

FAR-RIGHT PLAN TO HIJACK REFUGEE DEMO IN AMBER RUDD’S SEAT!

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.’

ONE OF THE UK’s MOST DISABLED-FRIENDLY UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES, DUE TO BE SHUT!

ONE OF THE UK’s MOST DISABLED-FRIENDLY UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES, DUE TO BE SHUT!

10/05/16 Hastings.

On Tuesday 8th March 2016 it was announced that the University of Brighton would be shutting down it’s three sites in Hastings within the next two years.

The decision made by the Board of Governors, was made after a presentation was given to them by a ‘independent’ company, who the newly appointed Vice-Chancellor Debra Humphris had commissioned to do a report. A report Unions have applied a FOI to see, which was turned down and is currently been appealed.

The decision came as a complete shock to the students, staff and local residents.

It will effect over 600 students, hundreds of staff and have a massive impact on the local economy.

£12m of public money was spent on the three sites, in one of the most deprived areas in England.

The sites were designed to be one of the most accessible Campuses for disabled people in the Country.

This decision has been made without any consultation with staff, students or unions.

There have been no impact assessments, especially for disabled Students.

Mark SU Harvey, Officer for Disabilities at the University of Brighton said:

‘ Having worked for several different Universities giving advice on disabled access and having visited many, it is notable the lack of  disabled access in these places.

‘ However, Hastings is a unique place with full disabled access to all buildings; it is small and situated in an understanding town with lots of support for students from caring staff. This should be both preserved and encouraged, as other universities have to create policies to make this happen.

‘ After attending the recent NUS Disabled delegation in Manchester, I realized how envious others are of what we have in Hastings. I cannot see how management could justify removing this, when other campuses fall far short of the mark.’
