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?
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’.
