A lot has been written this week about Scottish Conservative and Yoonionist Leader Ruth Davidson and the disgusting ‘rape clause, as it has come to be known’ in the changes to Child Tax Credits. The policy states that women who have a third or subsequent child as a result of rape will still be able to claim tax credits, but will have to demonstrate their (prove they have been raped) “exceptional circumstances” in order to qualify – an exemption campaigners have dubbed the “rape clause”.
In a kind of Twisted Logic
Davidson’s logic is that this disgusting punishment being meted out to women should be mitigated by the SNP Government at the Scottish Tax Payers expense. We were warned about the fiscal trap after the joke that was the Smith Commission but I never thought I would see it used so disgustingly, but it is the TORIES, scum of the earth.
Ruth Davidson is a very un-likeable politicians at the best of times, her support for this policy just shows her to be a thoroughly disgusting politician of the worst kind, un-likeable doesn’t come into really. If this does not convince people to vote yes then nothing will, so how much longer are we going to put up with this crap!
There is to be a protest rally in Glasgow this weekend to protest against what has to be one of the most shameful policies in living memory, certainly in mine anyway. What kind of union is the United Kingdom becoming that this can be seen as right or just, it is a disgrace. Ruth Davidson’s, and all Tory politicians, support for this policy shows the kind of despicable politician the Conservatives really are. I am ashamed to live in a country that tries to justify this policy.
