I know people in work and people on benefits and I can tell you now they're not living the high life on their sink estate with a flat screen telly comfortable in the knowledge that there isn't a cat in hells chance that they're escaping their existence. Nor are the people who are working all the hours just to pay the bills and not much else. And so what if they have an x-box or a telly? Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? The money they receive actually goes back into the economy not like the high earners who avoid paying tax entirely and ship the money out.
To me, these are the people that should be attacked but for some reason no one cares too much about the millions/billions of tax avoided but are outraged at the person who receives funding even though that money will never leave the country. Besides it suits the government that the unemployed are sitting at home being entertained with gadgets as if they weren't they might actually question the unfairness of it all and rise up and start a revolution.
So what of the Westminster Wankers - the latest brain child is that the council are looking at cutting the benefits for its fat claimants. Now if you can't see what's unfair about that then you need to take a good hard look at yourself. The council wants to punish people who are fat. I suspect the people making these decision aren't of a normal weight. I'd like to visit Westminster council and ask them to step on the scales if you please. They are meant to be public servants shouldn't we, as the public, say that if you're a fat councillor then you can't possibly do your job properly and therefore you will be docked expenses for every 1lb you are overweight? Whilst we're at it should we dock pensioners fuel payments and bus passes if they continue to smoke, enjoy a glass of sherry and like to put a bet on the horses? Recently there was talk of insurance companies banning the youngsters driving at night (when I say youngsters I mean those just passed etc). Can you imagine your 17 year old self being told you weren't aloud to drive your car at nightime? Where does it stop? How many kids you can have, how much you should weigh, don't smoke, don't gamble (oh no you can gamble alright because that gives the government lots of money) and so it goes on.
Don't get me wrong I could tar all politicians with the same brush but this lot are in a different wanker league to their previous counterparts. Say bye bye to any ounce of freedom you ever thought you had.
In other news Cadbury Creme eggs are on sale. And that's all I have to say about that one.
In other, other news we had a lovely day out today - free entry to a zoo/children's park by way of tesco vouchers I had kicking around. I have family coming around tomorrow and whilst hunger and normalish eating has resummed my full onslaught back on the 1970s Diet will recommence on Monday 8th when the kids are back. I can't wait!
Be back soon....
