UK right; money for troops not the poor
The ruling Conservative party’s Philip Hammond (the Defence Secretary) has called for a cut in the welfare budget in order to maintain the number of troops.
The toss-pot went on to say that in the upcoming government budget defending the nation must be top priority. We assume that he means attacking other countries must be top priority.
He also said that a fair percentage of the cabinet want to reassess the welfare budget. No surprise, the tories want to cut the welfare state, cut money to help the disabled, the vulnerable and the sick. Got no money to look after yourself? Fuck off then!
The conservatives; the caring and compassionate party…
How about a different approach?
How about we stop attacking other countries, dramatically reduce the military budget, join the EU army to ensure that real and genuine security is not compromised and use the leftover funds to increase the standard of living for the British public.
