A letter a day to number 10. No 1,029
Sunday 15 March 2015.
Dear Mr Cameron,
What an interesting day, nearly 900,000 signing a petition to reinstate someone who was reported as racially abused his producer, thumping him, thus necessitating a trip to A&E and about which an incredibly ignorant and stupid woman claimed that suspending the presenter was ‘a little bit like hanging the Queen’.
Welcome to brutalised Britain, a country which is seeing a marked increase in the abuse of disabled people, fuelled by your governments vilification of benefit recipients and your focus on alleged fraud and over claiming which has given rise to increased resentment and abuse directed at disabled people.
And oh how your party has driven and reinforced the idea of fairness for the hard working tax payers who have to subsidise those on benefits as you strive to establish “a visible link between merit and reward”. Cheap words and cheap mind tricks, for how can a disabled person have any merit in your world of strivers?
The word ‘fairness’ coming from you is custom designed to fuel injustice, intolerance and hate. The war on the poor is driven by cheap propaganda eaten whole by the gullible, the self centred and the thought less, who spew out hatred and violence, just as you and your coven of cheap psychological tricksters intend.
George Osborne, back in 2012, said, “Where is the fairness, we ask, for the shift-worker, leaving home in the dark hours of the early morning, who looks up at the closed blinds of their next door neighbour sleeping off a life on benefits?” This was venomous hate speech on which the entire attack on benefits and benefit recipients has been mounted. You, Osborne, Iain Duncan Smith, Esther McVey, David Freud and plenty of others have been relentless in your demonisation and mockery of the poor.
Freud claimed “Food from a food bank – the supply – is a free good, and by definition there is an almost infinite demand for a free good”. How can the grasping, greedy, poor resist this endless supply? But, as Katherine Trebeck, of Oxfam said: “You have to be in a pretty desperate place to ask someone else for food.” Not that you would know anything about that or care.
Like abusers everywhere, you promote the victim as villain, deserving every vile insult, punch and kick that comes their way. That’s why Oisin Tymon ended up in A&E and 900,000 people, who signed the reinstatement petition, couldn’t care less and, indeed, are no better than the man who put him there. That’s Tory Britain in which the poor die and far too many of those you claim to promise fairness for don’t give a shit!
One thought on “Tory Britain, where abuse is ok, from the top down”
