I am shocked and disgusted by the self-serving selfishness of the British public, although I shouldn’t be, considering the cries of “Scrounger!” and the 65% increase in physical attacks on disabled people since the 2010 election. Now I fear even more greatly for our safety. IDS was shocked and upset that he was challenged in the Daily Politics Debate on Welfare on BBC2 the other week about suicides and deaths following his regime and sanctions. He threatened his challenger to “Be Careful” about making those accusations and he was simply NOT going to accept that removing people’s entire income could lead to their deaths. He appeared totally deluded about his role in their demise.
What makes this result so insulting, is that there are celebrations about the Second World War and our victory against Hitler, whilst Cameron and his cronies are concocting a way of installing gas chambers for the vulnerable useless eaters without anyone finding out. I think that if the Tories suggested a holocaust of the sick and poor, the selfish idiots who voted them in would possibly cheer. I mean it would make the extra £10bn of welfare cuts so much easier wouldn’t it? Not only are we going back to the 1930s level of spending, but the 1930s era of scapegoating and vilification, propaganda and scaremongering. If we were all gassed to death I really think very few people would actually care.
Cameron uses his dead son like a sympathy glove to obfuscate what he is really doing to our NHS by playing the sympathy card. His son would be disgusted that his dad would use him in this way, whilst destroying the lives of so many other disabled children, disabled adults and their carers. But he doesn’t care. Everything is fair game when you want the ultimate power. And he has secured it.
What is totally clear to me is that the Tories had a grubby back room deal with the SNP to destroy Labour. I am definitely no fan of Blair and would never have voted Labour during the Blair years. He was as a big a misogynist as Cameron.
The SNP worked with the Tories when they were in minority Government. It is clear that there was some kind of deal whereby the Tories would reward the SNP with fiscal autonomy if they destroyed Labour in Scotland. In return they would hype up the fear down South once the Tories began to propagate the idea that Labour would “Stab the UK in the Back” and leave the UK defenceless and spend and borrow till the country was at death’s door again. Notice that Salmond said he would write Labour’s Queen’s Speech and how he would force Miliband to give into them over Trident and the like. They were stoking the fires down south, whilst alienating the Scots against the English even more (if they even needed convincing. Having been married to a Scot, trust me they did not know what they hated more, me being English or me being BLACK!! i am actually Mixed-Race. Oh the poor mother!)
What we have now in the UK is total division. I cannot even see the point of the fight to keep Scotland in the UK. The divisions between us are now a gulf and the divisions between the sick and healthy and the have and have nots are at an all time high. I think that the country is in an irreversible mess that possibly will result in a civil war before we can restore some kind of stability.
In the 1930s the Germans were so scared and worn out and fiscally broken that they were ready to believe anything that they were told. They were ready to blame the sick, elderly, poor, vulnerable and their champions and in 1938 thousands were gassed to death, before they even started on the Jews. Once the vulnerable were gone, they started on the Jews and their sympathisers. It seems that the British people are now falling into the same trap. They are turning a blind eye to the atrocities happening to people in their country by dehumanising them. They are no longer human beings but “Scroungers” and “fakers”. These evil people who are demanding the hard earned taxes from decent people to live a life of free housing, cigarettes and 26 children. What a luxury, when real people, actual human beings are suffering because they have ton pay their way through society. Who cares that they could develop a life-changing illness or have a disabled child. Or lose their job-for-life and be unemployed and possibly unemployable. When there is no welfare state for them to turn to, what next? Well of course they will once again blame all those feckless people who dared to need help before and ruined it for them when they needed it. They won’t see their role in electing the machine that destroyed their safety net or that healed their wounds.
These short-termist, selfish people should be ashamed to call themselves British. All the things their ancestors died for and suffered for during the War has been for nought, as they choose their own comforts and lives over the lives of their compatriots. Or perhaps I should be ashamed to call myself British, after all I am sure I would be first in the line for gassing: daughter of an immigrant, disabled, black, female, and heaven-forbid with an iron will and a social conscience.
Five more years of despair, because as David said in his article Fear has conquered Hope and now I must live in that Fear.
Last Saturday in Berkhamsted market treasury minister David Gauke, my local Tory MP now safely re-elected, told me five days before polling day, that the Conservatives would be returned with a small working majority.
At that time people said to me” he would say that, wouldn’t he? ” but Gauke had picked up, presumably from constituency returns, that the Liberal Democrats were doing badly. As the main challengers to the Tories in Herts South West he might take an interest even though his seat is one of the safest in the country. And he would know that many Liberal Democrat seats were vulnerable to the Tories and that Labour had more or less had it in Scotland.
As it turns out whether he had a crystal ball or not he was right – even though the opinion polls…
