GOOD LUCK WITH THAT
Once again the stupidity of the vast number of the electorate absolutely baffles and enrages me. But on the plus side i can get back to blogging the truth that is either too unpalatable to listen to or people are to dense to understand,
All the work for the last three months has been utterly wasted in trying to get people to listen and never again shall i try to make people see the facts that are out there, it is a waste of my time so i will just have to blog about it instead.
So as you wake up this morning you will be confronted this morning by a Conservative government that has utterly fooled the vast majority of the public into voting for them. So lets look at what you voted for shall we ?.
More than 900 food banks where people go to get free food have sprung up since the Conservatives took power, when they came to power there were only 41. Yet in one discussion we actually had a woman, very well to do, telling me that it makes her blood boil that these people get dole money and then run off to get free food ! Boy.. is her finger on the pulse of reality.
It may well be i was speaking to the biggest idiot in my area but i was staggered by the fact that over one million people have been forced to abandon their dignity and go cap in hand to charity for free food because they cannot make ends meet.
A typical scenario for most of these is pretty appalling. Not only do the state make it extremely difficult to claim benefit but most using food banks are working. Yes you heard that right, most are working and their situation is more lamentable than the Tesco's fiasco. Remember that one ? Let me remind you.
A while back the government decided to make anyone claiming dole work for their money so what you had in effect was a slave labour market and my didn't Tesco's and others leap on the opportunity to get people to work 40 hours for just under £100.
So there is a public outcry and it gets stopped neatly sidestepping the fact that these people were then taken off unemployment and given zero hours contracts.
Before we go any further this has nothing to do with working mum's needing flexible hours to suit, flexible hours have always been available in a wide range of jobs like cleaning or child care.
This is a godsend to the government who get people off their unemployed books and for unscrupulous employers who can give you as many or as little hours as they wish. Imagine you are the one on a zero hours contract and your employer wants you to work a night shift. You point out that you are a single parent and need to be at home with your children. Your employer states that this is not a problem but there are no other shifts open this week, or maybe very limited hours.Off to the food bank you go as you cannot claim unemployment benefit. By the way it takes up to six weeks to come through if you are made redundant and there are no emergency loans or payments, how do you eat.
Go get another job fast right ? Get down the job centre right ?... Wrong !.
All the work or the vast majority of it is no longer at the job centre but with employment agencies and guess what ..they are zero hours contracts too, every one of them. So the reality is that it is the same merry go round again, can you travel ten miles to stack shelves on Thursday evening ? No..ohh ok then we will call you when we have something else will be the reply. In reality they won't bother unless desperate as Janos that great little Pplish worker will work any hours, any day for minimum wage and no bathroom breaks.
Get an apprenticeship right ? Yep if you are 17 to 20 Superdrug do those laughable apprenticeships stacking shelves for £2.73 an hour !!
Allow me to enlighten you to a fact that the media are not highlighting, a staggering fact that no one wants to hear as it does not affect them. There are over 900,000 people on zero hour contracts in Britain, over 45% of those people have had to use food banks at one time or another or they and their children starve. Do not be fooled by the tripe that people are lazy and do not want to work, when you have mouths to feed you will do anything, in desperation, some do.
Another fact you may be alarmed by is that 98,000 people caught shoplifting did it because they were starving hungry, they were not stealing to sell or alcoholics !
So remember what you voted for if you indeed put this government back in. Remember you said it was ok for the people that make decisions on your behalf to block and obstruct investigations into pedophilia, it is ok to frack under your homes and contaminate your drinking water and you believe the nonsense about the economy.
Let me enlighten you to something you may not be aware of. The government borrowed £500 billion pounds from the treasury, the treasury print the money that we all use. Of course this is done electronically so you do not see £500 billion pound coins !.
The government borrows that money but is charged interest so here is the question you need to ask yourself... IF THE GOVERNMENT BORROWS MONEY FROM THE TREASURY AND THE TREASURY PRINT THE NOTES WHERE DOES THE MONEY COME FROM TO PAY THE INTEREST ?
Got that ? Excellent all this economic and fiscal nonsense is designed to stop you from seeing that the DEBT CAN NEVER BE REPAID, so good luck with that work based pension you are automatically opted into.
While we are on the subject you may remember the SNP ran on the no austerity ticket and now they will probably abandon that as they climb into bed with the Conservatives. So a neat little trick of just failing in the Scottish referendum thanks to thousands of spoiled ballot papers, to get independence.
The SNP were bound to eat into the Labour strong hold in Scotland, thus making the Conservative position stronger, ask yourself who benefits and it is not such a long walk after all.
Oh and erm.. good luck with having Scotland decide what English people will do..oops.. but do not fear as in four years time the SNP will be used as the scapegoat as the Liberals were this time around.
