Ending the Something for Nothing Culture
David Cameron -
"Ending the something for nothing culture needs to apply to immigration as well as welfare"
As xenophobia continues to fire up the politics of the right in the UK David Cameron continues to promote one rule for the scapegoats, who, in this case actually do not exist yet (immigrants who he imagines are about to flood the UK) and a different rule for him and his buddies.
So who in the UK does actually get something for nothing?
Well there was George Entwistle, Director of the BBC for 54 days, he got just under half a million pounds.
And then there was Quantative Easing, the bank of England's own report to MPs pointed out that the richest 10% of households saw there the value of their assets increase by up to £322,000 per household.
Not to be forgotten is the Funding for Lending Scheme, so far £14bn of nearly free money has been drawn down by the Banks signed up to the scheme, the result? Overall lending by the banks actually fell by £2.4bn!!
Osborne bringing down tax for the rich, if you earn £250,000 a year the tax giveaway is worth £5,000.
I will not even mention Banker's bonuses, oops!!
So the rich and the ruling class continue to 'fiddle' while David Cameron attempts to ignite the UK 'burn' over the imagined abuse of the welfare system by immigrants who do not exist
