Not content with dealing with the results of one illegal war, the government is set to take Britain into the midst of the Libyan conflict and place the country firmly on the retaliation and/or terrorist map.
The bill for our involvement is estimated to reach £1billion by autumn – that’ll mean at least £1.5-2billion because we all know the government can’t do maths. More importantly is that William Hague has announced that we will welcome with open arms any Libyan official who abandons the Gaddafi regime and that they’ll be ‘treated with respect’ – this is more than the government is doing for its own people. How much will we have to pay for welcoming these people, will they get a nice hand-out from the state to start a new life in the UK with special privileges and concessions denied to others?
We’ve already spent around £300million on this war and the bill is going up by £38million a week – where is this money coming from? It’s coming from our taxes; it’s coming from our children’s education; it’s coming from our pensions and being taken from the care of our elderly, disabled and vulnerable.
Our own vulnerable people are contemplating suicide as a result of the DWPs determination to criminalise everyone who is currently out of work, claiming benefits or who are unable to work due to disability – will the money they propose to save through their Gestapo agents at ATOS be used to fund the integration of these war-mongers into our society?
We don’t need to be involved in this conflict, we have enough trouble to deal with at home and it’s only going to get worse as time passes. But by being involved, we’ll become targets of retribution and retaliation and the government will see fit to impose further legislation to deal with the potential threat and take away more of our liberties in order to ‘protect us from terror attacks’.
So, not content with taking us into another conflict, the power-mongers will use this as an opportunity to undermine our liberties and freedoms and to push us closer to the totalitarian state they desire so much.
