… a real child's suffering has been used instrumentally for an entertainment payoff that doesn't differ hugely from the one in Saw III.Really? The movie with the dismemberment & gallons of gore?
The ugliness and shame of this rests entirely with the political class that created the situation…
Even if you voted Conservative, this is not your fault, since that sure as hell wasn't in their manifesto: "strategic incompetence in the arena of delivering benefits".You know what, Zoe? No matter who you voted for, it’s not your fault. It’s not the Coalition’s fault either.
It’s down to parents spawning children that they can’t afford.
Full-time work is no match for poverty: wages aren't high enough. In the noughties, the government made up the difference with tax credits; the coalition is happy to see how long people can survive on tinned tomatoes.That’s because, in the words of the outgoing Mr Byrnes (Lab), ‘Sorry, there’s no money left’. So the constant funnelling of the sweat of the hard-working to the lazy breeders is a finite plan.
We’ve had enough.
… what is the point of a jobs market in which huge columns of workers aren't earning enough to feed themselves?Better to ask, surely, ‘That being the case, what’s the point of them adding new mouths to feed?’
