It won’t matter, the Tories don’t care

So the UN are to investigate the U.K. yet again about the impact of their austerity policies on the poor and vulnerable.

It’s not that long ago that a UN committee found that the U.K. was discriminating against people with disabilities.

When this report came out the media pretty much ignored it and the Tories said no we don’t and got on with continuing to discriminate against people for having the gall to need support in their hour of need. They could not give a shit, even about soldiers sent to fight their disgusting wars.

I despised Margaret Thatcher before I really understood what her opinions, actions, and policies meant. In 1980 she threw my Dad on the scrap heap that took five long years to get off of. I saw my Dad, in his early 50s, who had served through the Second World War be thrown aside like a piece of rubbish and I saw a man shrink into himself, a proud man who deserved a lot better but no one really cared, Labour certainly didn’t, and the Tories laughed at the poor as they do now. I hated Thatcher, but this Government are lower than vermin.

The United Nations can investigate all they like, this vermin Tory Government don’t care, too many voters don’t care, the media don’t care, and it just breaks your spirit, as well as your heart.

    Our grandkids if we have any will have to watch or the corporations might replace governments and democracy in the future. Certainly things aren’t going to get better any time soon that’s for sure.

    Sad to say they have not yet got into their stride, once we are out of Europe we shall see the removal of the welfare state, the dismantling of the National Health Service, and if all the dopey so and so’s keep on voting for the Unionists and vote No again ours will be freebooted along with the English. Too late then to say “a didnae ken”.

      I think you are correct about the NHS and other services, the English will see a slow but sure move towards privatisation and that of course will effect the Scottish budget , we can only live in hope that these things move us closer to independence. I do think thought that things are changing, it feels different recently, the language is changing around me and more and more people are talking about Scotland going down a different path. Any referendum in the next 2 years remains close because of the older generation but it is game on I suspect.

        I saw a couple of tweets the other day which suggested that the older population in Scotland has grown more than the young population since 2014. Something like net +40,000 65+ year olds compared to +15,000 16-25 year olds. This is concerning, since the most recent poll suggests the +55 age group is still firmly 60% No. It also suggests No has 50-55% support amongst 35-55 year olds.

        The next Yes campaigns would be well advised to concentrate on retirement communities and, uhh, wherever people between 30 and 50 hang out. Examining ‘don’t know’ percentages suggest that women in those age groups are potentially the swing vote.

        Should also consider encouraging rUK remainers to migrate here.

    Yes are still in the minority but it’s close and I think would be too close to call in a vote. The media are still a huge issue as is currency etc but I think we are closer than we have ever been.
