The more I read about these British budget cuts, the madder I get. They put a 12-month cap on… long-term disability? So we’re unofficially renaming them “short-term” disability — and when the money runs out, I suppose they can simply curl up and die?
And they’re raising the rents in public housing to market rates? I hope they have enough cardboard boxes.
Politicians seems to be under the impression that everyone is sitting on hidden resources, which will magically come to light when people are backed into a corner. What will actually happen is, people will die on the streets. Oh well!
