Well yesterday the government hit an all time low. Not only have they purposely neglected to protect the public from Covid 19, they’re now allowing our children to become hungry.
As a covid 19 sufferer I know exactly how vicious this virus can be. Thousands have does from it and the secondary infections that follow.
Thousands of people have also lost their jobs as a direct result of Covid 19.
The government have been woefully neglectant in the so called support that they’re giving the public. They even plan to take away the extra £20 top up money for universal credit and tax credit claimants in April.
It might not sound like a lot to many, and it isn’t but it is helping people to survive this covid 19 nightmare.
This week Andy Burnham and the other metro mayor’s took a stand against the governments covid phase strategy.
I live in the Greater Manchester area and the monies offered to our local councils weren’t enough to help anyone.
Thankfully Andy won his fight in parliament this week, but it’s a bitter pill to swallow.
It’s not enough to compensate people, nor will it make a big difference in the R rates. I’m a big believer in a full lockdown for at least two weeks, and everyone should be adequately compensated.
Yesterday a motion was put forward in parliament to ensure that all children would receive free school meals in the autumn and Christmas holidays.
Despite putting up a good fight, Tory MPs voted it down. They don’t care if our children are hungry, not do they care if we die from Covid 19.
Boris Johnson’s cruel, evil Government voted down a motion which would have prevented a million kids going hungry over the half term & Christmas holidays.
This is proof that they don’t care and will never care. Some Tory MPs are disgusted in their behaviour as are some ex Tory MPs.
The fact is that the Tory party has always been cruel and judgemental. They believe that the working class person is responsible for their own poverty, and they fail to acknowledge that they are the ones responsible for this.
If they could they’d round us all up and throw us in workhouses again like they did in the old days. Maybe this is why they always hark on about the good old days.
They now claim that eating is a choice that we have to make and it isn’t a necessity. They claim that all working class parents are bad parents because they can no longer afford to feed their children and themselves.
The truth is that the majority of parents living in poverty are bloody good parents. They feed their children before themselves and often go without meals to do so.
I honestly was waiting for the day that the government would stoop as low to suggest that eating food is a choice. That our children don’t deserve to eat, that they must go hungry at any cost.
They actually want our children to be hungry.
The ramifications of child hunger don’t just end when a child grows up. Not only does it hinder development it also causes health problems that continue throughout their lifetime. It also can cut their lifespan short.
We’ve already seen the return of Victorian illnesses and this is going to become a whole lot worse.
Combine hunger and the covid 19 and you create the perfect storm. The covid 19 virus loves to target a person with a weakened immune system, so I expect the child and adult mortality rates concerning covid 19 to rise substantially.
Being poor is no joke, I know because I’m in this situation myself, and the lack of care and consideration from the government never fails to anger me. Some high poverty areas voted for the Tory party because they were more concerned about Brexit than their well-being. This has bit them on the bum big time and hopefully they regret their actions now.
It’s going to be a struggle for many to donate food to food banks as more and more people are plunged into poverty yet the need for them will be greater than ever.
The Tory party actually like the fact that we are literally begging for food to survive. They love it, it brings back memories of the deserving and undeserving poor, only now no one’s deserving.
God help you if you’re northern and working class. They don’t even hide their hatred of us.
We all need to be angry about this, we need to remind them that we won’t be walked over like this. That every human being deserves a good quality of life. This isn’t an extremists views it’s a basic necessity.
So what will happen to the odious, lazy prime minister Johnson?
Johnson has been a failure since day one and I’m certain that he only got the job because of what he’s got on everyone else.
There is a time though that the Tory party will have to do some damage limitation. They’ve now lost thousands of supporters and if there was a general election in the near future they could well loose.
Will they do the dirty on him and get rid? Who knows but what I do care about is the future of our children.
I’m a Thatcher’s child, I grew up in a time where the working class was hated and poverty was everywhere.
I grew up with a lot of anger about this and a determination to try and help others and to try and change things.
I’m positive that our children will never, ever forget the cruelty inflicted upon them. They will fight back like I have I just hope that they’re more successful than I’ve been.
Health-wise I’m still not 100%, I’m struggling to stop coughing and to get my breathing back to normal. Yesterday I had to go out to do some errands and I felt awful, trying to breathe and beat exhaustion.
Please keep safe everyone and let’s continue to fight the heartless Tories. We can’t allow them to continue their cruelty towards the working class and also northern England.
It’s not the desolate north it’s beautiful with amazing people living there.
My thoughts go to other areas entering phase three of the so called governments covid strategy and also to the areas entering phase two.
We were in phase two for ages and you can get through this.
Now is the time to ignore the conspiracy theorists and to follow the hygiene and mask rules.
We need to beat this virus and every precaution helps.
