I know we all have pressing things in our lives. I for one am useless with money and keeping on top of things. Now more so as lost all my concentration too.
I get that politics is boring. I understand that to most it may not seem to matter who the US President is.
I see why few really care who our prime minister is.
But sadly it does matter. Every stress you have in your life likely has roots in politics.
Worried about your job? Well this government is trying to take all the rights from employees. Soon zero hour contracts will likely be the norm. Minimum wage removed, working week extended.
Worried about your mum, dad, son or daughter’s health? This government are trying to sell off the NHS. Soon if they get their way you will have to pay for health insurance. The more you pay the better your treatment. Health for wealth.
Concerned about your benefits? Well this government are looking at more ways to get folk off benefits. Not by additional support, but by sanctions and making it impossible to claim.
Worried about world peace? Teresa May and her cronies are allying with the most brutal regimes on earth. Saudi, Turkey and sadly with Trumps torture policies the USA. We truly are now friends with the devil.
Crime? Well May is privatising police forces and child protection social work. G4 (owned by the hedge fund owned by Mr May) are tendering.
Freedom? Tories wanted snoopers charter.
These and every other aspect of your lives are governed by politics. So to say ‘it bores me’ or ‘I am not interested’ lets yourself and everyone else down.
Its easy too. Labour for the majority, the workers, unemployed, sick and disabled, the Tories (Conservatives) to make the rich richer and to steal from you.
Lib Dem’s for whatever they feel like at the time.
UKIP …. don’t get me started, but want to sell off the NHS and make Trump president of UK too. It seems.
The choice is yours. But try never to say ‘ it doesn’t affect me’ because it bloody does.

Jonesy the Dog of Socialism

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
