David Cameron, a firefighter he is not.

It’s finally happened, after five years in office, David Cameron has finally gone mad.

David Cameron has twice compared himself to a firefighter in the final days of the General Election campaign. Most recently he calls Ed Miliband an arsonist and compares himself to a firefighter… Words escaped me, for a while.  

 Cameron might be many things, but a firefighter he is not. 

For a start, he would have seen his offices shut at Downing Street and Westminster with the DCLG building being downgraded to a post office. He would have had a reduction in his staff of 20% and his state of the art, chauffeur driven cars would be procured at a much lower spec and spend most of their time in workshops for repair. His suits would now be procured from Primark and he would have had a pay freeze for 6 years. At 48, he would have 12 years left to access his pension, or be just over 7 years away from losing it for failing a fitness test that he has less than 50/50 chance of passing.

Yes Cameron might be many things, cowardly, scheming and duplicitous, but a firefighter he is not. Remember that when you head to the polls.

They all must go

There’s an election coming up, 40 odd days to go until the general election in the UK. Leaders debates. Lies and skullduggery. What do we do?

We start by ignoring the business letter signed by 100 con artists.

It would be utter hypocrisy for me to say who you should vote for when my preference would be for mass withdrawal from the game, however, many of you are going to vote. If you do vote please think about what has happened to firefighters, teachers, doctors, nurses, police, look at the state of the streets and remember who was in office during this period. 

The purpose of austerity was to reduce the deficit, George Osborne has failed and it is now bigger than ever.

  

In the words of Mervyn King, the former Governor of the Bank of England, the recession was not the publics fault and no government could have stopped it happening, but the current bunch have made us all pay in sweat, tears and in some tragic cases in blood, Linda Woottton being one such casualty.

We face the harshest cuts to public services, built and paid for by us, our parents and our grandparents over the last 70 years, with what’s left being sold off to privateers at a snip of their true value. 

Know that what happens next will define the lives of generations to come in the UK, so as you head to the polling booth in May, remember who was responsible for slashing those services, cutting the support networks of disabled people and ex-forces personnel and many others and make sure your pen stays clear of those people and anyone likened to them.

Remember that the public service workers serve you 24/7, the people responsible for this ideological austerity serve only themselves and the likes of those 100 business ‘leaders’.
