There Is Never A Shortage Of Politicians Or Austerity

The world is going through many changes at this time. New words like Austerity are rolled out by think tanks which think things up to bamboozle us. Buzz words are what they call them. No one really knew the meaning of austerity when it was first used. We do now!

Recent times have shown us how austerity works. In a nutshell, the poor man is clobbered by the rich man so the rich man won’t lose any of his wealth. The poor man, who has very little wealth will end up with even less or worse, nothing at all! How does the rich man get away with this?

In the U.S. the new President, Donald Trump, is one of the wealthiest men on the planet. Here in the U.K. we have an un-elected Prime Minister, Theresa May, another very wealthy person. They keep telling us that we need austerity to get through the tough financial times! This means they may have to use a more economical private jet or a Lexus instead of a Bentley.

The Price of Caviar

The price increase in Caviar won’t affect most of us, we’ll be too busy hustling over the out of date fruit counter in the local supermarket. Little Johnny will have to have one sandwich less in his lunchbox next week. He won’t be going on that school day trip to Nether Wallop either.

Then there’s the rent and mortgage payments (for those who are told they’re fortunate to have one) and the 5% increase in council tax. Energy prices are set to rise by 9.8% (I don’t see much austerity there) which will add on average an extra £109 per annum to our bills.

Where is all the money?

Very few young people can afford to get on the property ladder these days and renting is getting so expensive which is adding to the dreadful homeless situation. It begs a question, where is all the money?

Since austerity was introduced back in 2008 the politicians and the wealthy have and continue to have a catastrophic effect on the vulnerable, poorest people in our society. They have created a society where the rich and the super rich continue to thrive while the needy, the less-abled and the elderly are thrown into the gutter like garbage.

There Is Never A Shortage of Politicians

Constantly, we’re being told there’s a shortage of everyday needs. Police Officers, Firemen, Welfare, Social Security, Care for the Elderly, Prison Officers, Council Workers, Housing, NHS Funding and so much more! All of it hidden behind the ruse of austerity. Of note, there is never a shortage of Politicians.

    Spot on, Trev, alas! Instead of focussing on the main issues, people are given scapegoats who are just as poor as they are.

      Thanks Dave. You’re right about the scapegoats too.

      I think it’ll get worse especially as inflation seems to be creeping up. Thanks for the comment, Susie.
