Dear Mr Cameron,
There is a very old saying that people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. If MP’s want us to support their transparent greed in wanting a very generous pay rise but also keep the many perks that come with the job, including expenses, and outright refuse to accept any cuts or reductions, then it is time to think again.
The failure of Work Experience Week to drum up support for working for nothing is a clear signal that even business owners have the ability to feel shame and not take up the scheme or at least to keep quiet about it if they do. Not so you and your merry band of benefit scroungers in parliament who lack the ability to exhibit any shame or remorse for driving ordinary people into the ground and yet refuse to tighten your belts, and expect us to pander to your every need and naked greed.
It’s no longer relevant to ask if you’re all stupid, you are so far beyond stupid it becomes moot.
There was a very interesting comment on yesterday’s letter regarding Mike Penning saying it is morally wrong people get welfare ‘for life’. A friend wrote, ‘Is it also ‘morally wrong’ that people are disabled for life? I am sure those that are would willingly give up their disability pay if it meant they could be agile and pain free.’ A comment like that reveals that Penning is beyond stupid, he is incapable of even the most facile and primitive joined up thinking.
You and your government have undermined the entire basis of work and the very idea of a work ethic in this country. You have stripped it bare of any meaning and then cut its legs off, just for good measure. Worse still you have redefined disabled people as having some kind of presumption of privilege or as some kind of malingering, work shy, scroungers. As a government and, more pertinently, as people, you are beyond contempt.
