If reports this morning are true, then we are about to see attacks on the unemployed that have not been seen in this country for many a year.
George Osbourne is to announce details on tough new conditions that will be attached to the poverty money called unemployment benefit or JSA. This is to tackle the ‘ Something for Nothing Culture’ , Johann Lamont(Scottish Leader of the Labour Branch North) will be proud her Tory colleague is taking a leaf out of her book. Basically anyone failing to find a job through the work programme will be required to do full-time community work or report to the job centre everyday. If they fail to do so then they will have their poverty payment cut anywhere from one week to three months or longer.
This does not take into account the cost of getting to a job centre, or the fact that if you are slaving away 37 hours a week, you won’t have the time to look for a job. We are really moving back to the Victorian times with this measure and it really is time that people took notice of what is going on in their country. Thatcher would not have even went this far. Whats next soup kitchens, oh we have then. Will this create homelessness, already have that, it will bring about poverty, oh dear we have that too. Still I suppose the unemployed can volunteer at the local food bank and when their finished for the day pick up their parcel on the way home to feed the kids.
Westminster is a disgusting country in itself, supported by all of the main political parties, and we are under attack like we have never been before. When will the tipping point come, when will people all over the UK take to the streets. When will Labour grow a pair and stand up for England , they have already abandoned Scotland, so they only have England left really.
This coalition of the three tory parties must be the most disgusting political class we have seen in 300 years. Their continued attacks on the poor is nothing short of a class war that they will win if we don’t start to take notice and understand what they are doing in your name. Years ago people believed that Labour would defend the poor against the rich, now they are the rich defending the rich against the poor.
We are not defenceless, we are not hopeless. You can start to learn about what is really going on, look at all the arguments, look around your community, look at how bad things are sadly becoming down south and then you tell me you will vote no next year. If we want rid of this elite, this attack on all of us who are not wealthy or have not inherited millions like Cameron and Osbourne, Miliband and Clegg, the Mountbatten’s (Windsors) then we have to vote YES next year.
Time is running out, we have one last chance, lets not blow it.
