David Cameron has revealed his caring side in an interview today.
“You may think I am just a selfish millionaire who cares only about his own wealth, but I am here to tell you I care about lots of wealthy people. The electorate should consider next Thursday whether they want wealthy people to be taxed into small 15 bedroomed properties, or do they want to do the right thing and help us to amass ever more pelf?”
He went on to say that the poor should realise they are an essential part of society, for without them the wealthy would have no standard against which to measure their superiority and economic advantage. “If we were all well off, why, the rich would actually be poor.
It is obvious to anybody with half a brain [the hoi polloi] that the socialist ideal of the redistribution of wealth would mean not that we are all wealthy, but that we are all poor.
So, when you vote next week, remember to cast a vote for yourselves, a vote for Conservatives so that you paupers at least have some meaning for your existence- to maintain the differential that makes my wealth worth having.”
(Not a real interview- I made it up. But you might consider whether I actually hit the nail on the head!)
Typical media brainwashing through subliminal messaging; the headline suggests something unsavoury, the actual text reveals that Ed was at his current girlfriend’s party when he met his future wife. Duh?!
But they have planted the seed of sexual depravity with the headline, and the ambiguous references in the article will not shake the initial impression given to most people- that he is somehow unwholesome.
Now, I’m not a lover of ‘Red’ Ed- he’s far too blue for my liking, but get very annoyed when the media uses these techniques to sway public opinion.

Of course, the Daily Mail never likes Labour leaders.
But in all the years of watching politics, I have never before seen such vitriolic and personal attacks on a Labour leader – and even his family – that we have been seeing from the Daily Mail recently (warning – link to Daily Mail dross):
In fact, the attacks are so personal I’m even starting to think the unthinkable.
Could it be because Ed Miliband is Jewish?
Don’t be so naive to think there aren’t still members of the British establishment who really really hate the idea of somebody with a Jewish background being Prime Minister.
And after all, Rothermere and his newspaper the Daily Mail have a shameful history of anti-Semitism.
In the 1930s, the newspaper supported Hitler as well as Oswald Mosley and his British Union of…

I have a mad, radical idea. Maybe us working folk, earning a relatively decent wage should pay to ensure nobody is hungry, cold or homeless.
Better yet, maybe the wealthiest amongst us should pay proportionately more to ensure this happens.
I’ll do it- happily; I’ll do it proudly and content my hard work goes not to the millionaire employer, but to the downtrodden proletariat.

This in turn aggravated my Depression; ergo I’ve been quiet, but reading that a friend and ally of the vile little excuse for a man Farage, thinks “disability an “epidemic” infuriated me enough to blog.
Epidemic is defined by Collins as:
- (esp of a disease) attacking or affecting many persons simultaneously in a community or area
- a widespread occurrence of a disease ⇒an influenza epidemic

‘Social housing’; what the fuck does that mean?
I’ll tell you what it means; it means you are poor; you cannot afford to buy. YOU are scum.
Margaret Thatcher started the decline with the ‘right to buy’ bollocks. When all those who could afford to buy OUR council homes had done so, reducing the available stock they had to come up with a new idea to hand our homes to private enterprise; so was born the Housing Association.
Now we are ‘untermensch’ who are unable- or in my case- unwilling to buy; untermensch because we make a choice- a choice disdained by the party of ‘choice’.
We are moving socially and economically back to the 1800s, via the 1900s. Low wages, private landlords in the ascendant, social security and health care declining.
Feel safe today- feel despair for your children and their children.
This Is What Democracy Looks Like: Iain Duncan Smith Election Challenger Arrested Over Alleged Sticker
Have they not learned their victims are our heroes; that those marginalised become famous by default; that there are MORE OF US THAN THEM!?

Lisa was accused of putting a small sticker on a wall two weeks previously and thrown into the back of a van, hand-cuffed and held for hours. She has been charged with criminal damage. The arrest took place at last night’s Poor Doors demonstration, the weekly picket of the luxury tower block in Aldgate where tenants in social housing are forced to use a different door to the rich. According to one onlooker police insisted her arrest was nothing to do with the election campaign against Iain Duncan Smith. They must think we are fucking idiots.
When Lisa and Class War recently went on the campaign trail in Chingford they were followed by police, repeatedly harassed and threatened with arrest. …

from Boycott Workfare
Saturday 30th May, 10.30am-5.30pm, London Welsh Centre (10 minutes’ walk from King’s Cross station)
Faced with policies that are pushing ever more people into precarity and poverty, thousands of us have been coming together to support each other. We are pushing back workfare, standing up to sanctions, challenging the work capability assessment and fighting insecure, unaffordable housing.
If you are concerned about:
- Job centres being places of intimidation and sanctions,
- Private providers bullying claimants on ‘welfare-to-work’ schemes,
- 35 hour jobsearch under Universal Credit,
- ESA assessments putting sick and disabled people in fear of destitution,
- Welfare rights for young people being abolished and replaced with unpaid work,
- Workfare being required to be eligible for social housing,
- Housing benefit being part of sanctions under Universal Credit,
- Claimants in work being sanctioned under Universal Credit too…
…then do something about it and come to the Welfare Action Gathering to hear…
