Do we really want this man running the country? Or running DOWN the country.
I know I am not alone in having noticed that George Osbourne’s Budget Speech, some weeks before the Election, was full of holes.
He claimed that the Conservatives had got Britain back on the road to recovery, and set out various spurious plans to ‘get people back to work’. I’m writing from memory here, so I’m just giving my own opinion, and am not ‘fact checking’ – but along with several small useful ‘initiatives’ to ‘help business’, which probably would be worth implementing – there were some horrendous gaffs and boasts that ‘Britain was back on track’.
After five years of austerity and the brutal hacking back of our Welfare State, to a point where thousands of hard working families are relying on Food Banks, and skilled workers are forced into zero hour contracts and paid a pittance, you would have thought that they should have been well on their way to balancing the books by now, but in fact they are still borrowing huge amounts.
Do you know where all that money has gone? I don’t!
That was bad enough, but to my mind, this Election has been won by lies and bribery, and I can’t believe that so many of us fell for it and voted them back in.
David Cameron resorted to making promises he couldn’t keep which will involve huge outlays of public money, and to scaremongering – if we voted Labour, the country would be run by the SNP.
Well, David, the country IS going to be run by the SNP now – you pushed Scotland into kicking out nearly everyone else, yourselves included, and now YOU will have to deal with them.
The NHS is on the point of being mangled beyond the point of no return, affordable housing is on the point of being sold off, with minimal new building to replace it, the poor and the disabled are losing their benefits – I truly fear for us all!
PS: Just seen Lance Greenfield’s Post – We’re all DOOMED – he says it so much better than me! Have a look!
