Rob­bing poor will make us next Syria

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BRI­TAIN will be­come the next Syria if Ge­orge Os­borne has his way.

I can’t be­lieve the Chan­cel­lor wants to cut £1,300 a year from the poor­est peo­ple by tak­ing money from the wel­fare bud­get.

I’m glad the Lords have de­layed it. If it goes ahead peo­ple with young chil­dren won’t be able to af­ford to live, what are they go­ing to do?

Fam­i­lies are al­ready hav­ing to use food banks to sur­vive, we are go­ing to end up with peo­ple beg­ging in the streets and starv­ing like in Syria and Afghanistan.

It’s ridicu­lous be­cause at the same time the gov­ern­ment is meet­ing with the Chi­nese lead­ers and throw­ing ex­pen­sive par­ties.

It’s up­set­ting that Ge­orge doesn’t seem to care.

I was also shocked to hear about all the job losses in the steel industry – that’s hun­dreds of peo­ple all out of work just be­fore Christ­mas.

It’s short-sighted if you ask me be­cause we still want to build things and will end up buy­ing it all from else­where, which is stupid.
