Has anybody stopped and noticed the amount of welfare-related programmes that have been on the telly recently? Benefit Busters, Skint, On Benefits and Proud, Benefits Britain, Benefit Street?
They are cleverly designed PROPAGANDA to stoke the fires of an indignant working population who are struggling living under a Tory Prime Minister. Please remember - these people have been carefully chosen. It comes at a time when we are living under austerity and are made to think that we should pay the price for corporate tax evasion, non-dom tax havens and elitist, capitalist bullshit. Social care is being slashed, the NHS is on it's ****, people are actually dying on the streets, yet these programmes are designed to distract us all from what is really happening.
You do realise that Child Benefit, Disability Benefit, Working Tax Credit and State Pensions fall under welfare, don't you? You do realise that we are all only a redundancy away from unemployment ourselves, don't you? You do realise that nobody who earns less than a 6 figure salary has any business listening to or voting for a Tory government, don't you? You do know that while people are taking out their frustrations on the poor and desperate, MPs have given themselves an 11% pay rise and Tory Peers are claiming £300 a day for turning up to work and leaving 20 minutes later, don't you?
Do not be brainwashed by these fat cat bastards. Stick together, get them out. I for one want to live in a society that protects the poor, the needy, children, the disabled and the working class. They'd bring back workhouses if they could. Thatcher's children. Divide and Conquer. Don't be fooled by weapons of MASS DISTRACTION.
