Bang 'em all up

I have absolutely no sympathy. I am a socialist, I believe in the principle of 'from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.' She has an enormous mortgage-free house and refuses to pay £50. Meanwhile, I am being taxed into the ground and am unlikely to have a state pension at all. Council taxes go up for everyone, not just pensioners.

In fact, we're not only paying their pensions, we're now paying to put them up at Her Majesty's Pleasure. Sell your house, you selfish cow. I don't have that option.

I wonder what the press reaction to this story would be if we replaced 'white English pensioner' with, say, 'asylum seeker', or 'council estate mother with five kids'?

She says "I'm a survivor. I survived the blitz - I can survive prison." Prison is not fun. I look forward to seeing her survive an encounter in the showers with Big Mary.

'Miss Hardy said she had sensed for some time the anger which was in evidence in the community, adding: "I feel that an uprising is not far away."'
A very slow moving uprising that uses Zimmer frames and smells of wee.

I thought you were a recovering socialist. Did you have a Dr Strangelove style tremble there?

I've no sympathy either, she's an ex-social worker, thus hoist by her own petard methinks.
