Gang Abuse Of Individuals. Shame On Britain.

Lord Freud

Lord Freud

This Time It’s Politicians, The Media AND The Twitterati.

It is like bees to honey, more like flies to a corpse. A reasonable proposal, taken out of context, not really even a slip of the tongue, just deliberate distortion by a nasty side of Britain that sickens me.

Lord Freud Has Nothing To Apologise For.

It is reasonable, intelligent and compassionate to suggest that disabled people might benefit from work in which they could not justify payment of the minimum wage but which the state could top-up to that level.

The abuse levelled at this man by attention-seeking politicians, opportunistic disability rights campaigners and other parasites is disgusting.  It seems any excuse is good enough now to target individuals.

Jim Davidson, Dave Lee Travis, Brooks Newmark, Lord Freud – all far from perfect, unlike those who criticise them of course.  All undeserving of such focused abuse.

This is an aggressive, spiteful side of Britain in 2014 which I really don’t like.

The Plague Is In Both Your Houses

I believe in the media.  I think it’s a power for good.  OK, so The Daily Telegraph has turned into The News Of The World and there is much else that is crass and false and wrong but it is the media that reveals truth and brings about change.

There can be no option now but jail for some MPs, dismissal for some, resignation for many and shame for most.  Those dishonest and corrupt members of the House Of Lords deserve even worse.   I also wrote much the same a few weeks ago about the police after the disgrace of the G20 murder and assaults – and what has happened?  Nothing!  For anyone else charges would already have been brought.  Undoubtedly the violent policemen are free on bail and strings are being pulled to breaking point to keep them free.

Well let them break.  We all saw it with our own eyes as we have seen the crimes of our politicians.  We need no more prevarication.

This is the power of the media and I look forward to the day when we see these politicians, policemen and, yes, the bankers too, chained together as they are led into jail.
