Dear Mr Cameron,
The only test for any government policy is its impact on the ground in
the real world, not some cooked up nonsense spun from a government
office or department and especially not a PR department.
Trussell Trust latest figures reveal that 1,084,604 people were given
food parcels in 2014/15, 687,607 to adults and 396,997 to children. This
is a catastrophic rise from the 61,468 handed out in 2010/11, your
first year in coalition.
The richest people have seen their
wealth double since the banking crisis. Government policy attacks the
poor whilst the richest are rewarded, that is the reality of austerity
in Britain. George Osborne announced in his budget that families could
pass an increase to £1 million on to their children free of inheritance
tax. He lowered corporation tax from 28% to 20% over the period of the
coalition government, but has lowered it further to 18%. However, in
proposing a then freeze on Tax Credits he remarked, ‘So those who oppose
any savings to Tax Credits will have to explain how on earth they
propose to eliminate the deficit’. He thus made it clear that
eliminating the deficit is the sole responsibility of the poor. The rich
are not only protected, they are rewarded whilst the poorer you are the
more you are penalised and let’s not forget where the deficit came
from, the banks who will directly benefit from the lowered corporation
tax. Britain’s corporation tax is the lowest in the G20 and we’re also
giving businesses £93 billion a year in subsidies, that’s a welfare gift
of more than £3,500 from each UK household.
The magnitude of
the injustices being heaped on the poor are utterly staggering. You are
literally crushing the life out of the poor, knowingly, wilfully and
with malice aforethought. There is no justice in it, no hint of
‘fairness’, a word Osborne is fond of using, and no ‘security’, his new
catchword applied to everything except the poor other than in proposing
more cuts in tax credits next year to pay for ‘national security’.
This is the relentless wholesale destruction of the poorest and most
vulnerable people in Britain and is nothing more than cold blooded,
callous, brutality. Your government has blood on its hands and you
couldn’t care less and Tory MPs openly mock the poor in parliament.
Britain now ranks amongst the worlds brutal dictatorships.
