With the news that, as at the end of December 2012, the national debt was £1,111billion and is forecast to head towards £1,534billion, is it not time that we ended this farce of overseas aid? The Libya campaign cost £200 million and the national debt had risen by more than that by only lunchtime today.
But it is not just the mismanagement of the nation’s finances – digressing, I am sure readers will not have missed the fact that debt is incurred by governments but then becomes “ours” – it is the fact that generally they give the appearance that, in the words of the Son of God (which they believe they are), “they know not what they do”. The fact that they damn well do know what they do makes it all the more imperative that they are stopped in their tracks.
Where the lack of care for our own vulnerable and old people is concerned it becomes obvious that, to quote CallingEngland, for the politicians it is a career but for us it is a matter of life and death.
Once again – just saying……….
