I had a couple of conversations along a similar ilk today, citing the last thing we need is another 4 years of Conservative reign.
I am so angry at the way the Tories are executing Welfare policy, a vote grabbing budget is what we are heading for, with the most vulnerable back on
the chopping block, without a thought for the impact on the wider economy in terms of every section of society needs to contribute to the economy, not
just those in paid employment, aure the money spent may be tax payers money, but it eeps the system cycling, for better or worse.
I am also furious at the way this government thinks it's ok to penalise further still those in part time employment, who do help themselves to an
extent, sure they need some support, but they are not sitting idle on their backsides...what do the Tories bring in?
A pilot scheme to begin in April to penalise anyone not working the amount of hours the government deems accptable as a minimum with regards to how an
individauls circumstances fit into their cognitive miser mentality.
So, to summerise it is no linger considered enough to be in some form of paid employment, potentially, they wish for the poorer in society to jump
through more hoops in order to survive.
I sincerely hope there is a challenge in the court of human rights to this.
Oh, and while I'm on a rant....I am fed up of the people who turn around and say "I'm fed up of supporting the welfare system with my taxes!"
You know what, without that support, the house of cards would fall down much quicker economically speaking, plus it cost nothing to come into this
world, yet we enslave ourselves to a system which doesn't promote personal growth, just a smug "Why can't you be more like me and support yourself,
because I pay, threfore I can take the moral highground!"
I am fed up of that attitude, they also most of the time tend to be members of the 1% or bathe in their shadowy glory.
You know what...you're flawed, because their is no prize when you die for living your life as a martyr or a slave.
The other comment that infuriates the bleep out of me...."Don't have kids if you can't afford them!"
Yep, ok, let's see how quickly your society lasts if we apply that rule.
More importantly kids cost nothing to make, above all they require their parents time and love, at present their is a rise in child on parent violence
here in the UK and some of the problem is the parents believing all they need to do is work, work, work to provide, sadly this is also the message
society is projecting, it is a sorry state of affairs.
Ok rant over, I am entitled to my opinion and anyone who really thinks it's worth defending their opposition to my message, let me tell you
now...Don't Bother, I don't care, for the simple reason I have heard all of the excuses and I am still of this persuasion, so back off.
Ok, off to go and calm down.
