The only asset we truly possess is our labour, which has been exploited for centuries to create wealth, everything around us is created from labour, every single human made thing. These things are then sold back to us at a profit. All profit rises upwards, never to be seen again by those who create it […]
We are not for one moment all in this together
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,379 Tuesday 22 March 2016. Dear Mr Cameron, I see you’re backing George (we are all in this together) Osborne. I can’t believe he’s still banging that drum, it is long past its sell by date. A millionaire heir to the Anglo-Irish baronetcy of Ballintaylor and Ballylemon […]
There’s no way to say this politely, the Tories are batshit crazy!
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,375 Friday 18 March 2016. Dear Mr Cameron, Nothing says Tory like punishing the poor, but Osborne has refined this to a bottom of the barrel scraping festering pustule of rankness. With all the supreme arrogance of the rich and clueless Osborne gives handouts to the rich […]
Britain gets poorer, Cameron gets a jet (Airfarce 1) and guess who pays?
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,261 Friday 20 November 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, At a time when millions of people across the UK are suffering and at their wits end I was astonished to read that you’ve ordered a £10 million refit of a Voyager A330 aircraft for you to gad about […]
The poor cannot afford the rich
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,258 Tuesday 17 November 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, I am sick to death of being regarded and treated as a lower class of being in this country by an elitist government determined to keep robbing the poor to pay down the deficit. Osborne made it clear in […]
Mission creep and treating people like vermin. how much longer?
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,206 Sunday 20 September 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, Isn’t it astonishing to watch mission creep in action? A year or so ago, no one would have dared to suggest that older home owners living in houses with an extra bedroom or three should move into ‘proper housing […]
Capitalism will destroy the world, we must have co-operation, not corporations
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,173 Sunday 09 August 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, Three myths that you Tories love to peddle: The rich are the entrepreneurial drivers of progress, privatisation offers more choice and better service and the trickle down effect. The great capitalist dream is over, bar the screaming, that is. […]
Arise the sleeping giant and throw off the chains that have bound you
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,170 Thursday 06 August 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, The left has finally reawakened after many years of hunkering in the darkness of post Thatcher Britain. As she herself put it, ‘Socialism represents an enduring temptation. No one should underestimate Labour’s potential appeal’. No, they really shouldn’t. Nor […]
The lies that wouldn’t fool a child, only adults
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,159 Sunday 26 July 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, It is astonishing that Iain Duncan Smith can justify savaging our entire system of social security based on the reaction of people watching poverty porn on television and yet completely ignore the ever growing public outcry against the reality […]
Despite being paid by us, Cameron doesn’t work for us
A letter a day to number 10. No 1,154 Tuesday 21 July 2015. Dear Mr Cameron, In your stunning U-turn over your pay rise you said, “you’re paid a rate for the job and you should take the rate for the job”. All well and good, except you and your government are not doing the […]
