Better than the Queens message

OK, this is my very first reblog. This is *so* well written with an important message for us all. This is from Angry Panda from the “Rule of Stupid” blog, and this bear has a big heart. Give it a read!

Tomorrow is Christmas and soon 2014. This is I suppose my Christmas message. I’m away from home and without my usual toys so alas no cartoons 😦 But lots of deep meaningful pontification. Don’t worry – it get’s happy towards the end!

This was a year which saw drastic cuts to benefits, pay rises for energy bosses along with massive price rises for energy bills, train fare increases, food prices soaring, fuel costs on the up yet wages dropping. Use of food banks rose by 98%, 600,000 people were added to the fuel-poor, one in six families is now considered too poor to afford rental accommodation. Giant corporations avoided tax while the poor lost out to the bedroom tax and reductions in housing benefit. Many disabled people and others with support needs were forced to look for work they were unfit to do. This is a mere handful of examples.

  1. I wrote a lengthy comment and a poem to this….but did not publish because I do not publish on google + I resent the fact they demand your full name, date of birth, how much money you have in the bank and how many people you have slept with.( It will come to this)

    Having said this I enjoyed your piece and thank you for sharing your experiences. Hope this year is better for you. There is light at the end of the tunnel and it’s nice to have a weekly giggle with you and Alice which is better than a slap in the face with a wet fish .( as we say down here)
    Cheers and Happy New Year Luv!

  2. Thanks, Rall! I reblogged this as it so reminds me of what’s going on in so many countries, and Angry Panda says it so well. (His experiences, not mine). I don’t quite get the google issue, as his and my blog are on WordPress, though I do agree about Google’s intrusive data collection. No doubt they have all these facts about me already… A slap in the face with a wet tuna might be in order.

    Thank *you* for the regular laugh – I love your great sense of humor (or is it humour down under?)

    My best to you in 2014 and beyond,
    Robert (aka One of a Class)
