THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED – TREATED AS DOGS AND CATS

elder-abuse-photo-300x296

SProc.Net is a computer programme that is marketed as ‘services procurement technology’, and, in itself, seems very efficient. Its developers can not be blamed for its use; they are merely taking advantage of councils’ directions to provide the cheapest care possible.

SProc.Net allows councils to be involved in ‘reverse e-auctions’ in which care companies bid against others on the internet to offer the lowest price for nursing home or home care services.

They are either bidding for entire care contracts or for individuals. In the latter case, elderly and disabled peoples’ personal details are put online – their age, diagnosis, prognosis, medication, etc. Like buying a car, companies sift through all the details so as to calculate costs and profit margins.

The initial process may involve many bidders, which are shortlisted, and then informed of their position on this list, which then encourages ‘the finalists’ to adjust their bids downwards. A Freedom of Information (2015) request indicated that 92% of care contracts on this system over a six-month period were awarded to the bidder who had offered the lowest price.

Quality counts for Jack Shit.

Nursing homes that win contracts can have very low care quality ratings. Cutting costs is always synonomous with cutting care.

Neither is all care monitored – a council paying for a 30 minute care visit found that the elderly person received one of less than 5 minutes.

Families are often unable to inspect nursing homes before their parent is sent there.

A typical reduction of care costs for a council such as Birmingham is 20%.

Councils known to be using this system in 2014/15 were:

Devon County Council.

Southend Borough Council.

Birmingham City Council.

Kent County Council.

The developers of this system claimed to have been in negotiation with 30 other local authorities.

This method of treating people as cattle is given a ‘reverse truth’ gloss. The latest version of SProc.Net is adam LIFE, launched on November 28, 2016, in Birmingham, which seems to be a test ground for such ‘innovations’, rather like an Area 51. The ruse here is to stop councils disclosing vulnerable peoples’ personal details (leading them open to charges of unethical practice), and getting families to do it!, who then receive details of “pre-approved” (i.e. lowest bidding) providers!

In all the realms of cunning this method of forcing families to auction their parents is one of the most fiendish.

In only a few clicks you can send your mum or dad to a final hell.

This system is even more rotten than that, though. For, when those sold to the knackers’ yards of ‘care’ die, their properties are sold by councils to re-pay their care costs!

And no surprise, this as everything else in the UK care sector is imported from America. See the United States Government Accountability Office, REVERSE AUCTIONS: Guidance is Needed to Maximize Competition and Achieve Cost Savings. December 9, 2013. This report as a very concise opening: “In recent years, federal agencies have been using reverse auctions — in which sellers compete against each other to sell their products or services to the buyer — as a tool to reduce the price they pay for certain types of items. In theory, a reverse auction leverages competition, enabling agencies to obtain lower prices and reduce acquisition costs”.

For American agencies read UK councils.

This is nothing more than someone going into a butchers and asking: what is the cheapest meat you have to feed my dog?

The lid is blown off what is really happening in the UK: “When setting up an auction on FedBid’s system, a contracting officer can choose to set a target price, which may be based on a government cost estimate or market research. If a target price is in effect, or “active,” a vendor must bid below that price — and below any other subsequent bids — in order to be the leading vendor”.

That is, the government has already set a maximum amount to be paid for care; councils are only a front for government; the mask behind which they hide their alien face.

By these methods we treat the elderly and disabled as dogs and cats to be thrown like garbage in human-animal shelters.

We ask families to post details online about their parents.

RISE AGAINST THIS DETESTABLE, LOATHSOME, ABOMINABLE SYSTEM!

RISE BEFORE YOU ARE THROWN LIKE GARBAGE IN HUMAN-ANIMAL SHELTERS!

CARE – COSTLY AT THE POINT OF DEATH

images

They sell old people as cattle in a market, with councils placing details of elderly peoples care needs, medical history, and medication on the internet, then accepting the lowest bid from care (a euphemism) companies. An eBay where humans are auctioned.

Those that have reached the stage of being flogged off are not even allowed to to pass on their homes as inheritence. If those with savings of less than £23,250 own their home then councils are increasingly placing legal “charges” on them, and bills for their care are payed when the home is sold after the death of those so robbed. At a rate of £40,000 a year a £200, 000 house pays forn 5 years of often bog-standard incarceration.

Many people in working class areas are being forced to sign deferred payment agreements (DPA’s), with which they surrender their home to a council to pay for care. These DPA’s will be rolled out to those receiving ‘care in their home’.

This is not the principle on which the National Health Service was founded. The principle of free care at the point of entry has been cancelled out by making it costly at the point of death.

Between 30,000-40,000 people are thought to lose homes this way every year.

Thus, those who have worked hard all their life are robbed to pay the investors and the creditors of the private equity companies which run the majority of British nursing homes.

We flog humans to pay bankers’ bonuses.

We flog humans to keep up the pretence that something that does not exist (95% of all money) is in short supply, and we need to ‘ballance our books’.

This is a disgusting scam of a political elite who are nothing more than scum. Their values are those of a cess-pit.

When they talk of British values they do not mention zero hour contracts, soup kitchens, student debt, or the robbing of the elderly; they eulogise about their version of democracy, which is nothing more than a dictatorship by bribed minorities, wherein most votes count for nothing. It’s like saying “we value your opinion, but, actually, it wil change absolutely nothing”.

You will not change one iota of the disgusting system of care in the UK until you get rid of the rotten system that produces it.

There is no point in sitting on committees or attending endless conferences, attempting to tinker at the edges of what has been given.

You will not change one iota of the disgusting system of care in the UK until you get rid of the rotten system lords that operate it.

 “lonely death”
bodies found in days or weeks
thousands every year
lonely
so lonely
Where can I go
children work all day
someone
please take pity
feeling so low
facing an unseen

NOTHING MORE THAN NAZISM

images

Those alienated from humanity by a ceaseless barrage of political propaganda
spun by the billionaire media
are encouraged to feel hatred
for the undeserving poor
the lazy unemployed
the your-fault homeless
the someone elses child in poverty
the war veteran scrounger
the inner city slum protester
the slave-wage union striker
the mentally tormented in shock
all failures of personal responsibility.

And all the dopes of political propaganda shout
flog them!
make them think through my prism
not thinking that cruel fate can take down their narcism
to the level of those they mock.

Idiot, do not tell with such high zest
the old and wicked lie
that some are more human than others
and spikes and pebbles in doorways
perches instead of seats in bus shelters
all to stop the homeless from sleeping or resting
is nothing more than Nazism.

 And when such politicians as silver-spoon George Osborne pontificate about the moral imperative to have intervened in Syrian , temper your judgement of this high-ground moral stance with him asking at a Conservative Party conference “Where is the fairness, we ask, for the shift-worker, leaving home in the dark hours of the early morning, who looks up at the closed blinds of their next-door neighbour sleeping off a life on benefits.”

Clever politicians manipulate idiots, just as the Nazis did.

And the fellow-travelling Labour Party  of Blair needs to be transformed by a revolutionary Momentum.

NURSING HOMES – DEBT PRISONS OF CAPITALISM

images

In New York, a caring husband disputed the doubling of nursing home bills and complained about inexperienced workers who dropped his wife on the floor.

On his next visit, he noticed a six-page legal document on his wife’s bed – a guardianship petition filed by the nursing home, asking the court to give the nursing home full legal power over his wife and complete control of her money.

However much this practice may disgust those with any vestige of decency, it is perfectly legal in New York State, where cases are held in private to protect confidentiality, it is claimed. It is rather the case that elderly debt-prisons, euphemistically called nursing homes, are protected from scrutiny, rather like claiming that disgustingly abused residents are protected by not allowing cameras to record their abuse!

Researchers at Hunter College showS the practice is now routine, nursing homes in this respect are nothing more than debt-traps, debt-prisons, where even the last thing of any value is stripped from the helpless in order to make their goalers rich.

It is like taking the gold fillings from the corpses of Holocaust victims, and my reply to anyone who says that nothing should be compared to such barberous acts is that it exhibits the same mindset, a complete disregard of what it is essentially to be human – to be driven by compassion not greed.

The ‘guardianship’ (robbing) of the elderly will inevitably be coming to Britain, as will the enactment of so-called “filial responsibility laws,” which allow nursing homes to seek reimbursement from the residents’ children … or granchildren, great-grandchildren, and so forth, down the centuries, as such ‘debt’ is traded between the detritus that pose as human.

And what happens when ‘crisis in care funding’ is ‘debated’ on tv? All the assembled posers talk about tinkering with the system to make it better; they never talk about dismantling it, for they can not bite the hand that feeds them, like the poodles of capitalism they are.

The disgusting practices of American-style care are already here. Families are asked to sign ‘agreements’ about care costs when putting their parent in a nursing home; these costs can rise with a weeks notice. Councils line the pockets of debt-ridden private equity groups who take their management costs and their investors 10% return from council-funded residents’ payments. This is before any care costs are met. And these rapacious wolves have the audacity to claim that councils do not pay them enough! Throw us some more flesh! We are Hungry! We have a bottomless stomach!

Open your eyes, and with a revolutionary heart overthrow the tyrants that imprison you in a rotten, maggot-infested system of profits posing as care.

Nationaslise all care!

Spend on care the same percentage of GDP as Germany or France.

It is the height of disdain for the government to propose an increase in council tax to pay the jackals feeding from the carcass of the care systen when the they give millions to private companies (that support them) to provide tens of thousands of immigraants with accomodation, at a time when city centres are being sanitised of the homeless, as they are shifted on to ‘wherever-else-land’; and billions of pounds of so-called overseas aid (in reality, bribes) are doled out for such projects as building luxury hotels!

Open your eyes, and with a revolutionary heart overthrow the tyrants that imprison you.

COUNCIL TAX AND SOCIAL CARE

images

The movie “Cruel Intentions”, describes a secret society as “everybody knows it, it’s just that nobody talks about it”. Such a society is composed of a multitude of for-profit care agencies that feed from local council funding of social care.

It is a society of parasites.

Councils pay between £14-£18 per hour for home care visits.

The parasites pay their staff “£8.50 ph inc Holiday pay” (an actual example from a job advert).

Your taxes pay for the government to pay councils to pay parasites to cream off profits for providing rushed home care visits where the choice for the client is one of EITHER being assisted to eat or shit.

The government now intends to ask you to pay more in Council tax to pay councils to pay parasites to cream off profits for providing rushed home care visits where the choice for the client is one of either being assisted to eat or shit.

There is no funding problem.

The problem is one of paying government-supporting capitalist parasites.

The solution is to expell the profit-parasites from care, and making all home care assistants council employees.

When the government asks you to pay more in Council tax to pay councils to pay parasites tell them NO!

THERE IS ANOTHER SOLUTION!

“Everybody knows it, it’s just that nobody talks about it”.

JUST ASK, WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?

Freedom

Native American Indians will only be free if they sing the revolutionary song of the morning star.

Black people if Africa, will only be free if they stop singing hymns and start singing the revolutionary songs of sociolism.

Nurses and doctors will only be free if they cast of the shackles of their government overlord.

Elderly people will only be free if we release them from the grip of blood sucking veture capitalsists.

Aborigenes in Australia will only be free if they throw the boomerang of revolution.
