Of all the people to re-ignite my long-winded fire…
David Pooey Cameron
In reference to capping benefits at X amount of £’s, because there are people at home doing NOTHING (The lady being interviewed would be one of those affected by the new cap and the child benefit reforms, and she is mid way through doing the ‘nothingness’ it takes to rear 5 children; all the things she does to ensure their lives are safe! everyday). Defining this ‘life work’ as NOTHING is perhaps a more fundamental problem for ‘child benefit AND housing benefit’; than the problem of which family to rob first.
It seems Slavery (for parents this era) is back on the ‘forward thinking’ agenda!
He ‘toffed out’ his disgust that a person at home, should never ever be getting the equivalent of a £35k salary, after tax!
Which equates to around £28,000
Which is a lot of money!
(Like Parents, Surgeons are responsible for the safety of multiple humans every day, and I think they get a little more than 35k a year)
Single people who are unemployed people do not get £28,000!
Single people get about £57 a week to live, and pay all bills bar rent.
NOTE the significance of rent in his plans…
A parent with 1 child gets the same £57 ish bucks and a whole £20.40 a week to raise a child
And a family with 2 children get just £13.40 to maintain their 2nd child, (apparently 2nd children are cheaper to care for)
None of these people get to set or control their RENT!
None of these people choose life, or the postcode of their roots.
The disposable income for anyone who claims any one of the main benefits, is approx, sorry definitely £0.00
Or they would not have been granted them in the first place. Entitlement already reached below base point years ago, but only the ‘£28 grand spongers’ who live in affluent places like SURREY! Are the ones hitting the headlines
Anyway, I’ll get back to the lady and the 28k shortly but firstly, I have to meander onto the word FAIR!
At the end of his pride filled speech on spongers, He actually said… it…
“It’s just not fair”!
FAIR??? Now I have heard reams of politicians speak at length without actually committing to a single decision, and most of these non-committal statements avoid the word fair.
The hypocrisy and irony of using it as a bargaining tool, when corruption is open standard practice; sits high in the throats and minds of the cabinet.
If it can’t be avoided they utter fluffy phrases such as “We need to commit to the development of a policy that prioritizes the fair treatment of …”
“’Equality for all’ means we must put our thinking caps on, and find measurable methods to ensure that the fair treatment of employees is rolled out. Encompassing the sensitivities of all people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, race or religion”
Otherwise known as diplomatically delivering bullshit explanations and solutions to problems that they don’t give a shit about! And problems they know cannot be fixed with a policy
They may use the word fair behind closed doors all day long, to their right honourable ladies and gentlemen
But I don’t think as yet, I have ever heard a politician, let alone the Prime Minister, actually dive into use of the word with such non ambiguity of meaning!!!
I just did a quick few page search/check to see who else from the political chambers of worldwide corruption has said the phrase ‘It’s just not fair!”
The World Wide Web found NONE!
Leaving me with a new-found respect for the long-winded planks who dance around the word fair, cos if there is one thing that ‘they all know that we know’, it’s that political ruler ship is rarely fair! In other words it’s more offensive to be told the motive for a policy is ‘fairness’, than it is to be called a tosser, coming from the Prime Minister.
Did you know that it is still OK and EVERYDAY practice to slap and physically punish children in schools, that’s correct, as of TODAY you can get your whip out as a teacher, but only if you’re teaching wealthy children in boarding schools and the like!! Apparently even abuse is a commodity that can be sustained with cash and status. Even when whipping 8 year olds is illegal and deemed/accepted as a form of ‘ABUSE’ versus ‘discipline’ by most people in the UK nowadays, it can still be controlled by bucks! FAIR??
I looked at his long old face as he said IT, and I opened my mouth to laugh, a nervous laugh that didn’t escape, it was choked out of existence by shock instead. For the reasons listed above obviously, but also cos it was written all over his immoral boat, he’s that sooooooo out of touch, he didn’t even realise he was making political history (based on 3 minutes of shoddy research by me in yahoo ) by uttering the statement no politician dare to utter for fear of hearing…
An onslaught of a thousand ‘NOT FAIRS’ they themselves signed off, slung in their faces for all to see…
What’s not fair is that the government said yesterday that she couldn’t help it that her rent was £17,000 a year, or that she was born in pretty village in Surrey, and had not done the decent thing and moved to Pitsea. They know full well that she needs a minimum of £20.40 for one nothing, and £13.40 for the rest of her nothings, and they know she also didn’t get a choice when her husband filed for divorce and ran off with the gardener.
Oh and also this lady works!!!, on top of her full-time work at home, hours upon hours a week driving to swimming group, karate club, Bollywood lessons, ironing, cooking 678 meals a week, mentally melting down, yada yada etc
BUT all her benefits and wages add up to £2,000 over Cameron’s new moral choke point.
So is it fair that yesterday they said she needed this money, not to be ok; but to remain above the poverty line (whole ‘nother rant). Yesterday 100’s of politicians collectively realised that this baseline was a mark of a civilised nation. Is it fair that tomorrow they want to steal it back? If you as a citizen of the world, dare to commit the heinous act of dedicating your life to raising a large-ish brood, especially if you do so in expensive postcodes…
If you dare to commit to the only JOB that ensures our continuation as a species…
Apparently you’re a cheeky bastard!
And when those other people in our society are out in the woods, shooting foxes and chomping their way through sea bass infused with gold-plated sage for a non living, you mothers and fathers should be ashamed!
Cameron, you are a bilious elitist blind little piglet! and when I walk home scared every night now in the pitch black; as my bin overflows from your 2 weekly collections; and foxes spread my cats shit all over my pathway; you’ve sent me 5 ‘yellow-pages style forms’ since you’ve been in power. 5!!!!. Virtually every week you steal my healthy/study/volunteering time, writing to you!!
Asking over and over if I’ve all of a sudden become fully able??? No luv, sorry!
And as all my/your/our outgoings rise; and my Open University fees quadruple, what exactly are you doing to make my life fairer Cameron?
By slashing the NHS budget that is responsible for my health?
And then bugging the shit out of me to see if I’m better?
It is a fantasy that one day I will slowly meander across a stage with him on it, stand in front of ‘The Donk’ and say “I think I speak for all of the left honourable ladies and gentlemen with this fair little exchange. A swop for your heroic attempts at caring for us all FAIRLY!!!”
And then I would put MY finger in his EYE!
Also, try giving Microsoft, Tesco, Wal-Mart and PC World a little tinkle on the blower, see if they can spare a couple of grand a year of the billions they make, to go towards national prosperity and the debt we all pay towards, and never get to see in writing.
Final note Cammy Boy…Pleeeease stop chanting that there are enough jobs, when you send sneaky little memos ordering all businesses advertise positions that have been filled internally, 4 months before the closing date. Then slowly break the souls of the unemployed by making them jump through hoops for an unobtainable prize. Fair? And then you use these fictitious roles as justification for your other classic phrase, and this one makes me want to poke you all over with a warm/boiling pointy fire pokey thing! ‘Members of the Underclass do not want to work, the jobs are there, but they don’t want them!”
Sorry would that be the 6 positions in the back of the paper in the CITY I live in? Positively brimming aren’t they Cameron?
Finally – ‘UNDERCLASS’! Whooooooo do they all think they are assigning these titles; and I’m sorry if this offends, but if you have taken this vile little label into your vocabulary to describe another fellow human being,
I say SHIM-a-DEE shame on you!
Bring me Cameron and bring me Eggs!! ;0
