How Evil Must The Tories Get Before Britain Rejects Them?
For many in Britian it is the burning question of our age - just how vicious do the Tories have to be before we stop voting for them? Protecting the rich and punishing the poor is par for the course as far as this party is concerned and they have always been able to rely on the greedy and selfish to provide them with enough support to keep them viable. But this government has set a new benchmark that even the greedy and selfish must recognise is beyond all reason. How can they be allowed to use an economic disaster caused by wealthy bankers as cover for a completely unwarrented attack on the sick, the disabled and the unemployed? Have the British fallen so far from grace that they can simply stand aside while the Tories, who have neither legitimacy nor mandate, lay into the most vulnerable in our society with impunity? There has been an outcry from business at Fred Goodwin being stripped of his knighthood, but not so much as a peep out of them as disabled children are stripped of the very means of survival. Why is he allowed to keep his £12 million pension pot after bringing his bank to its knees and the British economy to the edge of disaster while disabled children see their benefits slashed in half? More mystifying still is how the British people seem content to stand aside as the NHS, without which many of them would not be here, is privatised and sold off to a bunch of American corporate sharks. Meanwhile they cheer as David Cameron wields a non-existant "veto" in Europe and then back pedals like crazy when the Europeans take absolutely no notice of him. To put it bluntly, what the hell is wrong with us? Are we sheep? Plain stupid? Or, heaven forbid, so vicious, greedy and selfish that we simply dont care?
