Put Not Your Trust In Governments!

As of the first of April a new regime will be enforced in Britain. Where by people who have spare bedrooms will be penalised, widows who have brought up families in two or three bedroom houses or flats could be thrown out or put in to bed and breakfast, treated like  second class citizens. If they have legal problems no longer will they be able to claim legal aid, there is no money in the pot, tough! Things that have been accepted as a normal part of a civilised country, where poor people should be treated in a decent manner no longer  applies.

People in Britain are told to tighten their belts we all have to make sacrifices, Britain, a country where a cabinet minister can live on £53.00 per week? many millions of people would like to see that. But also a country that supports illegal immigrants in the best possible conditions. And if you support a terrorist organisation or run a terrorist organisation you get access to unlimited amounts of legal aid, the best solicitors that money can buy, and the highest quality barristers, people who have become millionaires from the public purse.

Why is it that the leader of a terrorist organisation receives what is not available to the ordinary people of Britain? Why is he housed and fed? his children educated by a system he hates and has sworn to destroy. Why is he allowed to use the NHS? Why is he given more than the people of Britain? Teresa May could you please answer that.

While we are tightening our belts surely we should be asking the question why is Britain sending aid to countries that have a Nuclear arsenal, and why are we sending money to countries that have a space programme. We cannot afford to live beyond our means but it seems we can subsidise countries who wish to have a status in the political arena. Countries that basically hate Britain and do not trade with us, aid should be sent to countries that have a need.

China does not give away millions to African Dictators but they build infrastructure, at least that way the money does not end up in a Swiss bank account. It is  time the British Government faced up to reality. You tell us to live within our means then on a World scale Britain should also adjust to its actual position. Then the people of Britain would not have to continually pick up the debts of many Governments who live beyond their means.

And one final word if  you do not like a Government you can vote them out. However if you have a vote then say ‘Oh well it makes no difference who is in power or I cannot be bothered’ do not come out winging about what you are losing, you have the government you did not vote for stop moaning and use your vote!

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
