Dear Mr Cameron,
Warning of hard times to come, George Osborne is apparently claiming that the British economy could face a sharp decline this year and that it is now mission critical. In his speech in Cardiff he said, “I worry about a creeping complacency in the national debate about our economy.”
When has George Osborne ever engaged in a national debate about Britain’s economy? The majority of economists are against your ideological austerity and have repeatedly warned of the harm Osborne has done to the UK economy. Osborne has persistently ignored everyone in his religious determination to demolish the state. Your announcement of permanent austerity at the Lord Mayor’s blowout in 2013 was really just the warning shot across the bows of the nation that you intended to shrink the state to nothing and there would be no going back.
Osborne has already sold off some £37.7 billion of state assets with another £20 billion to go this year. Doubtless all at the same knock down prices as Royal Mail was to city vultures. All Osborne is about is the transfer of the nations wealth into private pockets, not so much a leaner state as you put it, but a complete clean out. Everything must go.
Oliver Letwin apparently bragged in 2004 that it you Tories got in you would destroy our NHS within 5 years and it’s obvious to a thick brick covered in mortar that’s going really well. In 2010 you promised no top-down reorganisation of our NHS, which, of course, turned out to be one of your more egregious lies, what I didn’t quite realise at that time was that it would be a demolition derby. There is already discussion going on about an insurance based NHS albeit sneakily introduced via the Lords by Lord David Prior. You are nothing if not a back door, sneaky and dishonest kinda guy.
The Housing Bill will see the end of social housing and lifetime tenancies because you want all housing to be either privately owned or privately rented at market prices few can afford and the devil take the poor as you destroy their lives and communities.
What is for very sure, whatever state Osborne’s incompetence reduces the economy to, whilst blaming everyone else from China to the neighbours cat, it is the poor who will take the greatest hit, with the poorest being starved out of existence by Osborne and Iain Duncan Smith.
