Friends and readers.
You may know that the High Court has dismissed a legal challenge against the bedroom tax. This bunch of old well heeled geezers in wigs ruled that while this tax does discriminate it is not unlawful, work that one out. This discrimination effects all council tenants, and will have a disastrous effect on those with a disability.
The growing reality for many thousands of disabled people is that they now face their lives with less income having to find extra to pay higher rents with the threat hanging over their heads of eviction from their homes.This bunch of insulated, hate the weak and poor Tory misfits care not a jot as what we now see is the establishment ganging up with this lot to crucify those less fortunate than themselves.
Tory cut throat Duncan Smith say’s this will restore fairness to our housing benefits system. This policy is anything but fair ,it is an intolerable way to treat the most vulnerable people in our society. We all know that there are some who screw the system, yes and we may even know one or to personally, and these chancers should be sought out and punished. Pilton Sucks knows personally of one punter who recently got a tenancy in the Millar development in Crewe Road North and is benefitting out of cheating the system, we are happy to furnish the name and the evidence. If we know why doesn’t those who are supposed to know do nothing yet are willing to hammer those who desperately need our help and support.
Already the effects of the bedroom tax are becoming clear. Social housing rent arrears in Scotland increased to £2million compared with the same month last year. Yet still no action against their pals who hide their money off shore, still no action against the banks who continue ignore calls for investment in small to medium size companies, while still enjoying large bonuses, and just to rub salt in the wound, tell the mug punters that all this and more is needed to put us all back on track after we were derailed by their pals in the banking system.
Forget the Labour mob they agree with what’s going on and have said will keep to the Tory policies if they were elected, heads you lose tails you lose. Pilton Sucks is very clear about what needs to happen. Hammer those that cheat the system, absolutely, as we say we are aware of people who are happily cheating the system. Begin a war against those who hoard and hide money away in dodgy accounts. A 70p tax on all those who earn over £100,000 a year, winter fuel allowance doubled with fuel bills for the over 70′s who have no other income other than state pension to be paid by the state up to £400 a quarter. All monetary assets stashed away in phoney accounts be confiscated and used to help the most needy in our society. Banks ordered to invest in Britains businesses to stimulate growth. Ease planning restrictions to allow sympathetic development making sure that all developments use local labour as a part of those easing of restrictions. Upskill our population and get Communities working.
Force the utility companies to freeze all fuel bills and if they don’t take away their licences. Break up the fuel cartels who clearly do as they please. No replacement of Trident or any other weapons of mass destruction. A comprehensive public works programme, to improve our infrastructure, and not just a continual patch up. Investment and targeted taxation, an all out comprehensive removal of tax dodgers and those who abuse the benefits system. Britain should not be a soft touch with a system that is there and rightly there to help our most needy, and abused by the minority. The Billions that are hidden away should be confiscated and re-invested in our Communities to create vibrant Communities. Those cheating the system should be caught and punished and the money re-directed to those most in need.
What the Tories are doing is a blanket hammering of those easiest to attack and then mouth platitudes about the rest. Thatcher popularised the greed is good mentality, and the greedy bought into and ran with it. We need to change that not tinker with it. Nobody should envy those who aspire to better themselves, but at the same time we cannot allow vagabonds and thieves to better themselves abusing the system at a cost to those who really need our help.
