The blight in government apparently knows no limits.
MPs are sucking the public purse dry with their £2million a month expenses bonanza because they seem incapable of making a move without a payment of some kind from the tax-payer to compensate them (over and above their salary of course) where even a KitKat is too much for them to pay for.
All the while, residents in over 1,800 care homes for the elderly and disabled around the country are being left in conditions which Neil Duncan-Jordan from The National Pensioners Convention says “a dog would not be left in”.
Is it so much to ask that our elderly and disabled get the same treatment that the MPs expect for themselves? Be treated with some dignity and concern? But no, they are a burden on society, they are parasites in the eyes of the government and must be brushed aside while the more important matters such as where the next summit meeting on poverty and hunger will be held or if in Europe, the time of the next spa treatment.
Apparently it is and while MPs line their pockets, clean their moats, have mock Tutor frontages on their houses – all essential to their job of course – at the tax-payers expense, elderly people are wasting away for the lack of a drink of water or being poisoned by incorrectly administered medication.
This country is a haven for criminals and the majority of them can be found under one roof in Westminster. This is a sick country and it’s at the point where the only way to save the patient is amputation.
