Have the Government got their priorities right?

Have your say

To me democracy has always meant freedom, fairness and honesty, but after looking at a few statistics in our so-called democratic society, I’m beginning to wonder.

Are these clowns trying to run our country, kidding us, maybe even lying to us, when they tell us, there’s no money left to pay for our vital needs such as National Health, education and the future of our children.

Let’s just analyse a couple of statistics.

Take the price of a pint of beer, which is around £3.20 on average throughout the country.

Why is it that the price goes up and up every year? Correct me if I’m wrong, but beer is made from 90% water, plus the natural condiments that grow around us.

So let’s have a look at the benefits paid to these radical clerics, who would love to see us all in hell.

How do these people get paid benefits of around £25,000 per annum, when most pensioners, who’ve probably worked all their lives, might just be lucky to be on £6,000.

I know, because I’m one of those pensioners, on less than £6,000 struggling to keep our heads above water.

Have we got our priorities right? Far from it. It needs to be sorted now.

Now, the Government are forcing young people on jobseekers’ allowance to take on jobs with no pay or have their allowance stopped.
