Scotland Yard has admitted Special Branch officers passed information to a controversial network that blacklisted construction workers. 

It follows a six-year battle to find out if the Metropolitan Police supplied the intelligence on trade unionists. 

The force says its investigation had "proven" the allegation, which will be investigated by a public inquiry. 

Workers who say they were unfairly barred from jobs have already received millions of pounds in compensation. 

In 2016, the union Unite reached a settlement with construction firms that resulted in 256 workers sharing more than £10m in compensation.

At the heart of the claims, which were made by hundreds of workers, was evidence that firms accessed a "blacklist" that logged workers' trade union activities. 

The list was used by dozens of construction firms to vet those applying for work on building sites.

 

so, get put on a list by plod for trade union activity which then gets you blacklisted. Nice. 

What a wonderful country we live in

And people have any doubt why:

(A) people with certain views are excluded from most corporate and/or Government jobs;

(B) executive positions in positions of power are entirely staffed by people with the Common Purpose viewpoint.

      I have various free webmail accounts which google and the other feckers are making generally worse, wanting more info like phone numbers to authenticate, less compatible with mail clients, have ridiculous user interfaces etc. I am prepared to go through the ballache of migrating to another service and to pay within reason but would like something that is likely to retain the same address long term as I use it for small business as well as personal. Maybe a 'junk' one for online purchasing and a 'proper' one for actual correspondence. My parents are reaching the age where power of attorney is on the horizon and have unreliable bt email so maybe buying a family domain name and running email from that is worth a look. What say the dosbods tech experts?

      They are planning to completely break the link between income and taxation. The latest plan is to base it on age.

      A new tax for the over-40s in England should be introduced to help pay for elderly care for all, MPs say.
      Retired people should also be made to pay it if they have lucrative pensions or investments, two influential House of Commons' committees said.
      The contribution - dubbed a social care premium by MPs - could then be used to ensure everyone who needs support in their old age gets it.
      It comes as ministers are considering how to reform social care.

      MPs tell of the strain of juggling parenthood and work in Parliament - and the toll their job can take on family life.
       
      how exactly do they think the rest of us cope?  Bloody self-entitled twats.
