There are several people saying websites down. Social Media being curbed. The army is on our streets. Silence is not golden. Who is defending freedom, and democracy as we lurch towards a one-party-state? The right wing press is abhorrent.
Readers of evil Daily Mail and the Sun being taken in by scare tactics and lies of the establishment. I want none of it, or them.
We must support and work for peace, liberty, equality, fraternity and justice.
We must not underestimate how far they go to protect their obscene wealth. They are trying to silence us. And this is when we need each other, not isolation. 😦
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Socialist.”
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
I hope I will not cry alone.
With a hat tip to Niemöller
First they cut disability benefits and I did not vote against them– Because I was not disabled
Then they cut sickness benefits and I did not vote against them– Because I was not sick.
Then they cut school meals and I did not vote against them– Because I was not a child.
And when all the social values, compassion and love for our fellow human beings was gone and the only value left was money. They took our savings and houses to pay for our end of life care.–
You will not cry alone. We will shout together.
Before they take our votes away we will vote for the many. The concept that the money we give to the few trickle down to the many is and always has been false. Choices in life usually come down to if it is a principle or a price with Labour’s policies we have, for the first time in more years than I care to remember, policies that are both principled and the price is not loaded on the many.
