Hey welcome to Tory Britain, were the poor live in filth because the Tory's believe they are filth and the Rich live on another planet in a lovely
island tax haven called Britain but not the same Britain obviously.
So WHO do we blame, Blair for being a false Labour Tory Left and actually continuing Thatchers policy of sell off's but through the back door with
the implementation of the So called Devolution (which in truth does not help us at all but does create an entire new upper middle class and upper
class through local authority and NHS corruption, overpaid salary's for useless Chief Executive's (when the NHS was centrally managed each hospital
was audited and this corruption simply would not have happened - same with the Council's and there chief executive's).
Welcome to an Britain were the only hope is actually TOO left wing but still remains the only hope for a reversal of this political ideological
plague of homelessness and cruelty that has swept our nation since the Tory's won (or was the election rigged).
In the past, before Thatcher (By the way any Tory's wanting to comment she never fixed our economy the turn around began in the Asian stock markets
and affected all western nation's not only us so in fact she had very little to do with the economic turn around if anything at all) we had state
housing, at least three daily police officer on the beat patrol's down all street's, industry was subsidized to and the government stepped in to help
when they were in trouble not just the state ran industrys but also privately owned company's, Bus routes were ran by the local authority's whom
answered to the Secretary of state, bus were regular, on time and frequent, Job's paid a minimum of 4 time's the rate of the Dole though Dole was just
about enough to live on (Thatcher spelled the end of that by removing the legal framework with meant that wages HAD to rise with inflation and causing
them in real term's to then drop in real term's value every year for the past 30 odd years now while she deliberately left the benefit's untouched
knowing full well that inflation would do more to destroy the system than she ever could over the succeeding several decades and indeed it did so),
people whom were unemployed understandably wanted a job because they could then afford the luxury's they craved.
Homelessness was never a crime in this country BUT it was almost eradicated until Tory sell off's of the national (Coucil local authority) housing
Street cleaners were very frequent, twice a week were I used to live and the pavement's were kept in good order, every few month's a guy with a
steamer would go around looking for bubble gum to get up, all that is gone.
But hey let's reward the rich because they need it right, after all that hard work not giving there workers ethical pay rises in line with inflation
after all who does not like a fat cat even when it get's so fat the roof caves in under it.
You know though, it is not only our nation that is suffering this, we had a far more fair society than the Yank's for example whom are also suffering
it but in our case because our nation was more fair we notice the change with far more anger but being Brit's we then don't do anything about it until
it is too late.
