Loony lefties will be all aghast at the increased use of food bank and whine that the govt should be doing more.
The reality is that the majority of food bank users are people who have had their taxpayer assistance messed up by the govt pen pushers.
Not sanctions, not stopping payment because they no longer meet the criteria, simple incompetence from the bureaucracy.
And the lefties want more govt bureaucracy, are they mad, no wonder ordinary people regard them as stupid idiots.
The law should apply to everyone.
Ordinary people have a duty to make this happen.
So when a govt agency, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does something wrong they should be treated in exactly the same way that the EPA treats others.
Unfortunately, the EPA thinks they should be above the law because after EPA workers accidentally caused a mine waste spill the EPA hasn’t paid out in the same way that they force other polluters to do.
Because of this everybody who still works for the EPA should be punished because everybody who now still works for the EPA are culpable.
Those that caused the spill need to be jailed for a long time and fined into poverty. Other ordinary EPA workers should lose their pensions and face a small fine, whilst those at the top should again, be imprisoned and fined .
What govt need to understand is that their power is fading and when people like me take over, and we will, we will have plenty of scores to settle.
Yesterdays Fenland Citizen had a wraparound advertising Fenland District Councils four leisure centres. This would have cost about £6,000 and is a complete waste of everybody’s council tax. Indeed, the fees collected from leisure centre users doesn’t even cover the running costs. This year council tax payers will be forced to cough up an additional £602,000. Imagine that, everybody’s council tax could be cut by 8% if only the council didn’t subsidise the four white elephants. But wait, every few years the council likes to refurbish the facilities, next year the council are going to spend a whopping £900,000.
There are plenty of commercial gyms in the Fenland area, the council does not have to compete with them.
When will the councillors and voters see sense, it is hardly an essential service unlike bin collections, is it.
Another story that caught my eye was a report about smugly self satisfied Rosie Stevenson of Leverington who is planning to take a gap year before going to uni. She is asking for £6,200 to go to Honduras. My problem with this is that she is merely virtue signalling about enjoying a jolly gap year, it is not really about helping Hondurans. After all £6,200 is more than enough to fully fund a proper qualified Honduran teacher for a year but then Rosie wouldn’t be able to get her picture in the paper and the charity that plan these trips wouldn’t be able to pay their staff.
Indeed, Rosie is quoted as saying after uni she wants to be “delivering humanitarian aid and campaigning for the right to education for all”. IOW she wants to use the power and force of the state to spend other peoples money. What a silly little virtue signalling airhead she is.
