Robbing from the poor to line pockets of the rich

I am replying to the letter in The Star on March 24 from Alex Dale, Tory candidate for Dore and Totley ward, ‘congratulating’ Labour for accepting a £30 million grant from central government to freeze council tax bills.

The ‘we-are-all-in-it-together’ brigade Cameron, Osborne and Clegg have put that freeze restriction on. The council face a heavy fine if they raise council tax.

They also face holding a ballot of the Sheffield electorate to ask to be able to raise it.

Reading the letter you would think it was Alan- a-Dale, Robin Hood’s musician, come back from the dead not Alex Dale.

But Alan- a-Dale robbed from the rich to help the poor, Alex Dale and the party he stands for, rob from the poor to line the pockets of the rich.

Please be aware that if Alex Dale’s mob are allowed a complete free hand after the next General Election, you will not know what has hit you.

Don’t forget these are Thatchers children. Clegg’s lot are prepared to come third and shack up with anyone they can for power, UKIP only have two policies – immigration and the European Union.

Ed Miliband may not be everyone’s cup of tea, even my own, but I am sure he and his colleagues will look upon and help his core voters and everyone except those who think money is their God and must have more regardless of who loses out.
