Listen, Conservatives, LibDems, Labour. Listen, all you people who swallow the story fed to you by politicians. I’ve got something to say to you.
You sell our schools, our hospitals, and our care homes. You dismantle our NHS so that rich service providers can make profit out of it. You hand over our schools to businesses, and you charge our students a lifetime of debt for a university education. You slash the services provided by our local councils, cut the carers, raise the rent of social housing and yet cut housing benefit. You throw money at the banks that lost theirs through lending fictional money to everyone, yet you borrow the money from those same banks in the first place. You destroy pensions that you promised in return for long, hard services. You abandon sick and disabled people to whatever squalor they manage to live in when you will not provide basic accommodation, care, and food. You believe that those people could simply try harder to be well, that all without a job could somehow find one tomorrow. You encourage big business to leech from our economy and use our services while diverting fat profits to tax havens instead of paying their way. You tell us that there is no alternative. We say bullshit. You don’t represent us. None of you do. You represent your own greed, prejudice and indifference. You try to force us to be the way that you want us to be instead of listening to your voters the way that you are supposed to. You say that strikes are wrong, we say that we are fighting for our country back. We will not stand by while a wealthy political elite destroys us, without even noticing the suffering that is caused – because you don’t even care enough to notice.
We are parents and children, single people and families, young and old, students, manual labourers, office workers. We are teachers, carers, social workers, prison officers. We are cleaners and shopkeepers. We are sick and well.
And we are ANGRY.
We won’t take your shit any more. We will strike, and we will protest, and we will NOT do what you tell us. Ignore us, and you will be sorry. Just look at what is happening all across the world. People will not take your crap any longer.
Leave the banks to dig their own way out. Shut down the IMF before it forces famine and destruction on any more countries. And get your greedy fucking hands off everything that we have built.
