It’s my feeling, especially if Cameron gets a majority at the next election in 2015 – and there’s a good chance he will unless things change dramatically (an effective leader of the opposition might help) – that there is a very strong likelihood of the sick and disabled being stripped of their benefits and housed in workhouses and camps, fed, clothed, medicated, but that’s all. And even that much might be marginal, if some genius decides our drugs cost too much.
Why? Because, long-term, will be vastly cheaper than paying benefits, and a very large proportion of the populace will have no difficulty getting right alongside that when they’re told it’s all the country can afford and that, ultimately, it represents the greatest good for the greatest number. A.k.a. “Pull the ladder up, I’m alright!”
Which, of course, will be garbage then as it’s garbage now – if we can afford to forego many billions in taxation, lend money we allegedly haven’t got (£7bn to Ireland), get involved with wars that are bugger all to do with us – OK, they inherited Afghanistan and the tag end of Iraq but, hey, they found the money for Libya, just as they’ll find money for upcoming conflicts in the Middle East if we get sucked in – then we can afford to support the most vulnerable members of our society.
The problem is not that the country, under Cameron, cannot afford us, the problem is that Cameron hates each and every one of us, and wants us gone from British society. It is, I believe, really that simple, and he is aided and abetted in his pogrom by his Propagandist-in-Chief IDS, and his Master of Lies in the House of Lords, Lord Freud.
And if you think this country would never sink so low, just consider how quickly the sick and disabled have gone from being a suitable case for support by society as a whole, to being reviled, abused, and assaulted – it can only be a matter of time before someone is killed simply because they’re disabled. Because we are blamed, by Cameron, and his coterie of mendacious arsewipes, for all the ills of society – and huge numbers of people are all too ready to believe this, without a scintilla of evidence, because a mob has little intelligence and no conscience.
So, given that the bulk of the news media in this increasingly benighted land, including the BBC, in breach of its charter, sides with Cameron and Co, and that the government has shown itself to be utterly immoral, ruthless, and dishonest, from the top down, just who do you think is going to take up the cudgels on our behalf when the modern-day tumbrels roll?
Anybody? Because let’s face it, the people making most of the noise in our defence are the sick and disabled, and there are more of us, and have been for some years, than you might think.
Take us out of circulation, and the silence will be deafening…
And for those of you reading this and thinking, “Yeah, serve the buggers right,” just bear in mind one little thing – it could, so very easily, be you. Or your child.
None of us want to be sick and disabled, but some of us were born that way – we had no say in the matter, no more than did those who had disability thrust upon them through no fault of their own. Some of us even got whacked with the disability stick twice, at birth or soon after and, more severely, later in life.
Should we be punished for something we never wanted any part of?
And let us, none of us, forget the lesson of history – it’s a short step from storing people in camps to storing them in the ground. Very short…
