DWP boss Amber Rudd is today facing fresh calls to ensure that claimants who lost their Severe Disability Premium when moving over to the flagship new system get their backpay as soon as possible.

She … [Read more...] about Universal Credit: 7,000 disabled Brits could be left waiting MONTHS longer to get lost benefits back
Yanan Wang, Associated Press Updated 5:27 pm PST, Saturday, December 29, 2018 FILE - In this file image made from a video taken on March 28, 2018, Michael Kovrig, an adviser with the International Crisis Group, a Brussels-based non-governmental organization, speaks during an interview in Hong Kong.

Not only dissidents and activists, but also high-level officials, Marxists, foreigners and even a movie star _ people who never publicly opposed the ruling Communist Party, have been whisked away by police to unknown destinations. less FILE - In this file image made from a video taken on March 28, 2018, Michael Kovrig, an adviser with the International Crisis Group, a Brussels-based … [Read more...] about China’s Disappeared: A look at who went missing in 2018
