LETTER: Times are tough but the problem is – tough for who?

David Cameron

WE are constantly told to tighten our belts as we are to face another back-breaking five years of austerity before life in Britain can become a little easier.

David Cameron’s regime has caused our armed forces to be reduced to a miniscule proportion of its strength.

It instituted a housing programme that forced thousands of families to become nomads.

Many families use food banks to survive bleak times as finance is the problem.

Hospitals are no longer a place to recuperate after an illness as there is no money to motivate services.

All drastic factors of hard times imposed upon the electorate by a government that constantly cuts and imposes heart-felt monetary restraints upon an unfortunate British electorate.

But, hey presto.

Out of the wizard’s hat Mr Cameron can pull a financial bunny to the tune of £600m, and award it to the under-developed countries to assist them with global warming.

That’s along with the £9bn we generously give in foreign aid to other countries.

What is critically more ironic is that Nick Clegg, the other would-be Prime Minister, wants the sum of £600m to be enshrined in law.

There again, I’d expect nothing less from Nick.

Some mothers do ‘ave ‘em.

But why should they all be British politicians serving in our Parliament?

Okay, times are tough but the problem is – tough for who?
