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.

      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.

      The advertising watchdog has told six UK universities to take down marketing claims that could be misleading. 
      Leicester, East Anglia, Strathclyde, Falmouth, Teesside and the University of West London have all had complaints upheld against them.
      The Advertising Standards Authority is warning against exaggerated claims made to attract students.
      Chief executive Guy Parker says students need "good evidence" when making such a big financial commitment.
      "Misleading would-be students is not only unfair, it can also lead them to make choices that aren't right for them," said Mr Parker.
      Complaints were upheld against six universities:
      Falmouth University has been told to stop describing itself as "the UK's number one arts university" or "the UK's number one creative university".
      Teesside University had a complaint upheld for saying it was the "Top university in England for long-term graduate prospects". University of East Anglia has been told not to use the claim "Top 5 for student satisfaction". University of Leicester must stop claiming to be "a top 1% world university".  University of Strathclyde has been told to change the claim "We're ranked No. 1 in the UK" for physics. University of West London must stop claiming to be "London's top modern university - and one of the top 10 in the UK". Note that they are all bottom league establishments (I hesitate to call them universities)  
      me thinks a lot of these are going to the wall
