    Powerful little poem Dave. This government would have us all sleeping in the streets if it threatened their own wealth. As usual, they never think things through. (Report) Reply

    Bedroom tax, petty and obscene - what next, I dread to think! ! The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. (Report) Reply

    The Tories like to keep the rich rich & the poor poor. I hope nobody dies as a result of this awful tax on the poor (Report) Reply

    I hope this didn't really happen! If so, our government's got a lot to answer for, well they've got a lot to answer for anyway.......I didn't vote them in and I certainly won't be voting for them in the future. Personally, I'd like them all out by tomorrow but that's not going to happen so what to do eh. They take it out on the people who can least fend for themselves...... and it's the children that suffer. (Report) Reply

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
