I know that there are a lot of nations where unrest and the mistreatment of their citizens is prevalent. However, this does not diminish the ongoing attack by the British government on the most desperate in our society.
In Britain, we have a coalition government. They have imposed austerity measures. They tell us that, "we are all in this together." Austerity, is their way of targeting the poor, the sick, the disabled, the vulnerable. They have brutally attacked the benefits of the genuine claimants and have left the unfortunate in a state of despair. They have decided that we are scrounging off the system. Yes, of course, there are those who are claiming benefits who should not. To assume and label the vulnerable as abusing the system is an immoral outrage. The stories of helplessness, of those who have committed suicide because of this, are increasing at a worrying level.
The tactic of the coalition government is to pit those fortunate enough to have work against those who either cannot work, or cannot find work. A catalogue of propaganda and misinformation.
Austerity in Britain. A nation where the poor, the sick, the disabled, the vulnerable pay for the mistakes of the incompetent fortunate.
This is the menu for the #G8UK dinner. I’ll chair a discussion on tax, trade, transparency and Syria at 830 tonight pic.twitter.com/GAWDxvEDkIThis is what appeared on Prime Minister David Cameron's twitter feed on June 17, 2013. Personally, I consider it insensitive and immoral during these austere times. A blatant disregard for those who are now suffering under his government's policies. "All in this together?" Tell that to the poor, the sick, the disabled, the vulnerable. The unfortunate people who worry about such 'trivial' things as a roof over their heads and food on the table.
