Friday. A bottle of cordial and Gills tin of beans.  

At this time when there are too many people out there who consider a bottle of juice, or even a tin of beans, a luxury, everyone needs to examine what they want in the future, for our society.
Hopefully, a majority will think of the suffering happening every day, here in the UK, before they tick their box on the 8th of June!

The poor side of life

This is somewhat different to the usual weekly blog that I write. I don’t often write about events outside the weekly demo, to be honest I wasn’t sure that my readers would want to read it. But I thought I’d tell you anyway. Some might want to listen.

I was awoken quite early by a crank call, made by someone for reasons known only to themselves. They appeared to find it humorous to make fun of what we do, and the help that we give to people. Some people are very strange, and sadly this isn’t unusual its become par of the course. I don’t take it to heart and I did report it.

You see, in the over 3 1/2 years that I’ve been doing this I have encountered many negative things. Name calling, swearing, being told by G4S that they were going to knock myself and a friend…

He shows, point-by-point, how the Tories have been using their idealogically-driven austerity measures – taking even their own voters for a ride – purely to line their own, and their millionnaire friend’s pockets, and how they are totally trashing everything that our Democracy has ever built that is worthwhile, while making sure that we, the people actually paying their wages, are paying over, and over, and over again.

With the majority of our media outlets in the UK being so totally biased against anyone who wants more than the Tories think we deserve, it’s hard to get across the message that the Tories are killing us: they are killing our freedon to live life as we should be able to (especially if we are ill, poor, elderly, low-waged, or disabled), and they are doing their best to take away our Human Rights, too.

Please click on the link, and read Thomas Clark’s post and, once you have, please think very seriously about how you will soon vote in the General Election?
