I saw this article today and if it doesn’t bring a tear to your eye and a fair bit of anger nothing will.
A nine year old girl calls a charity to ask for work so she can feed her family and get a Christmas present for her younger siblings and why, because her Dad who is a single parent following his wife’s death and redundancy waits five f weeks for his first payment.
I despise the Tories and everything they stand for, and I don’t care who I upset, they are the scum of the earth. The charity who took the call noted:
A girl of nine begged for work to feed her family after Universal Credit left her jobless dad skint.
In a heartbreaking phone call, she told how her mum had died and there was barely any food at home.
She said: “I’ll do anything. I don’t mind cleaning floors, making beds.”
The desperate nine-year-old girl revealed her mum had died, her dad lost his job and they were going hungry as delays in his Universal Credit had plunged them into poverty.
What kind of so called country allows this to happen. What kind of so called decent society elects Governments that enact these kind of policies. The charity also noted what the young girl said
“She told me, ‘I don’t mind cleaning floors, making beds. My daddy has always worked and he says you have to work to get things. I’ll do anything I can so I can buy my brother and sister a Christmas present. I can cook and I don’t mind working on a Saturday and Sunday or after school.’ After the call I just cried. Hearing that is like we’ve gone back to Victorian times.”
I can’t believe that we are coming to this, this country is a joke. Pander to the useless Windsor’s, give billions to the bigot DUP and we are left with nine year olds begging for food. This country makes me ashamed it really does.
The Tories are scum, end of.
