Owen Jones accidentally says the most politically astute thing he will ever come out with.
Although the election has passed out ‘Angry not Apathetic’ campaign is relevant no matter if the polling stations are open or closed. So what has been happening since the election?
There’s some thing disgusting about the way the politicians have been fiddling their expenses. It’s not just the abuse of power involved, it’s also the hypocrisy. They’ve spent their time telling us how much we’ve got to tighten our belts, put up with pay freezes and cuts whilst they’ve been merrily sticking their snouts in the trough and putting away as much money as they can get away with. This whole scandal has shown up our political masters for being just what they are, a bunch of greedy, lying crooks.
We’re used to changes in welfare benefits happening so slowly and quietly you’d hardly notice them. So unless you’re getting benefit yourself, you might be forgiven for not even knowing that unemployment benefit and income support were put together as the Job Seekers Allowance in October 1996. Then there was Project Work, a Conservative experiment being tried out in 30 towns from last April onwards, continuing under the Labour government up to the present day.
