Dear Mr Cameron,

Austerity is class warfare. Welfare cuts are class warfare. Sanctions are class warfare. Destroying our NHS is class warfare. Minimum wage and zero hours contracts are class warfare. Taking away legal aid and workers rights is class warfare. The list goes on and on destroying morale and confidence, favouring the rich whilst undermining and devastating the lives of the working class.

An estimated 50,000 people marched against austerity in London on Saturday and yet the BBC failed to cover it (a tiny piece emerged Sunday midday). That is not an accident, that's a decision and that decision is class warfare from a publicly funded broadcaster. Who made the decision to suppress such a major news story?

Oxfam is accused of promoting socialist propaganda by Tory MP, Conor Burns, and the right wing press, and yet the government is silent when the BBC decides not to cover a protest in the capital calling for an end to austerity. That's class warfare.

In the most incredible piece of double speak I have ever read, Iain Duncan Smith likens himself to Wilberforce and Shaftesbury claiming that benefits are slavery and his mission in life is to free people from welfare dependence by liberating them into work. Poverty is spiralling out of control with more people in poverty in work than out of work. To claim to be a modern day Wilberforce is a travesty and a conceit so vast it beggars belief when he is a modern day slaver introducing forced labour back into Britain via the Claimant Commitment Contract. The man is a monster blighting the lives of millions of poor people, terrorising them and driving them into despair. This is class warfare.

We are daily fed a diet of global unrest, the posturing and threats of politicians and continuing wars whilst those who have nothing to do with making wars, die. We are told this is democracy. If we can afford war, we can afford peace. This is class warfare by political elites against ordinary people who always pay the price for wars that rulers, so called leaders and politicians create.

I do not think it is overstating the case that the actions of your government against ordinary people is the sustained rape of cultural well being and security to undermine and destroy the lives of ordinary working class people. This is class warfare driven by you and your government on a hitherto unprecedented scale. It's a right wing demolition derby by the privileged few against the many. We the people did not start this relentless war against us, we are innocent of wrong doing. Even the 0.7% of people committing benefit fraud are nothing compared to the government fraud being committed against them. Austerity is a national thrombosis, of which Smith is so much a part, a clot that gums up the works.
