mauvepink BS: Spending Cuts UK - The Thread (249* d) RE: BS: Spending Cuts UK - The Thread 24 Oct 10


One has to believe that the government would listen to anyoe who takes a stance. They never listed to the people over the Iraq War and, it seems, they never listend to the people in this last round of electioneering.

How soon before they introduce laws that will take away the right to gather on streets and complain about all that is going on? How soon before the very Police forces they are cutting down have to defend their policies on the sreet? Will we see more innocent pedestrians beaten and knocked down on the pavements of Britain? They are not listening to the Charities Commission. They are not listening to the experts who tell that this WILL impact the poorest the most. They will not listen to anyone who is not singing their song. They are listening to each other.

I still have no idea how this can be done if the backbenchers - who I see as our possible saviours - rebel and make them listen. People will remember all those who have betrayed their election promises.... but then again, maybe not.

We are rabbits caught in the headlights of an oncoming juggernaut and juggernauts tend to take no prisoners. They will clean the prisons out of criminals and make criminals out of those who try and bring change by peaceful means. I am becoming scared and so disillusioned the more I see and hear from people around me. Is anyone else scared of the immediate future?

I have less to be frightened of (I think) than most of my clients. It's having a terrible effect on some of them. When will they start listenin to the people gai?
