When will it end?

Many Citizens go on about immigrants coming here taking the nations wealth and saying our own must come first but here is the thing, those same people could not give a shit about our own either as many long term ill and disabled many with some of the most deliberating conditions have been fighting a silent battle for the past 7 years with help from only the minority which is not enough.

There is now an abundance of evidence and reports across social media that makes it clear that what the Govt is doing is grossly wrong and a stain on the populace and is about to get a lot worse.

A friend of mine pointed me to a video and said it had reduced him to tears. I watched it and it reduced me to tears.

If you’re afraid of being reduced to tears, don’t watch this.

If you’re afraid of being confronted with painful truth, don’t watch it.

If you’re afraid of having your life changed and being motivated to do, live, think differently, definitely don’t watch it.

But if you want to see what’s really going on, what really needs changing – why millions of people are suddenly inspired with dangerous hope of change by the rise of Jeremy Corbyn and Labour because things need changing – then you must watch it.
