LET’S ROAR.


 

       Some of my friends are unemployed and receive £65 a week to live on and of course as anybody with half a brain cell knows it can’t be done. They’re part of a growing army of young and older people, who are going to join the ranks of those who need to rely on charity. Welcome to 21st century Victorian Britain. Living in these sort of conditions has a pattern, what happens next? Well of course their physical health starts to suffer, because they have to save on food to pay electric and gas bills and replace the odd thing that wears out. Then the social life goes out the window and depression can set in and we all know that the Cameron-Clegg plan for the health service means that they will get virtually no help from that source. So what should they do? Simple sit alone and let themselves suffer in silence, letting the millionaire club get it all its own way? No, they need to organise with the employed and pensioners to stop this vicious attack on the living standards of the working class. It is time to realise that this is an all out class war struggle, as far as the corporate world is concerned, the gloves are off. Likewise it is time that the ordinary people of this society acted accordingly. The niceties of empty illusions being woven by the millionaire class while the hack us to pieces has to be met with the brutality of an all out onslaught of the working class to defend ourselves and change society for once and for all to a society that sees to the needs of all its people. We cannot compromise on the future of our kids, we have an obligation to hand our kids a world better than the one we have.

  LET’S ROAR.

The problem’s too big
the perpetrators unknown
you can’t beat the system
all on your own.
So it’s easy to withdraw
find your own little cage
turn a blind eye to the suffering
stifle your rage,
but the greed goes on
the poverty’s still there,
you can’t just leave it
for your children to bear.
Others feel as you do
eager to put things right
but locked in isolation
it’s a hopeless fight,
so don’t sit in silence
behind a closed door,
your voice can help raise
a whisper to a roar.

  1. Yes but you get a housing allowance in addition to the £65 per week, right?
    And the unemployment benefits do not run out at 79 weeks like here in the US?

    I’m just trying to see if it equals out to what the unemployed get here in the States. It seems we get quite a bit more, but only for a limited time. This used to be a standard 26 weeks, but with such high joblessness, it has been increased to a maximum of 79 or 99 weeks (depending on your state). After it runs out–well that’s it, no more, you’re screwed and no one cares.

    • Hi,
      yes there is a housing allowance which is due to be cut and this will put more pressure on that £65. No matter how you juggle the money, £65 a week is not enough to live on. We may be a little better off than you in the states but all that is changing with this new government of millionaires for the millionaires.
