Shame on May and all spineless MPs
THE first statement Theresa May made when becoming Prime Minister was to promise to build a fairer and stronger Britain that works for everyone, not just the wealthy.
Again, in July this year, she made another speech, that she was going to devote all her energies to supporting families who are “just about managing”, and under her leadership put an end to social injustices. Once again she and her ragbag government have reneged on these promises, more food banks, families being denied universal credit for six or more weeks, pensioners having to go cold this winter, yet her friends, the rich and famous, and multi-national companies are legally stealing billons every year, and she does nothing to stop it.
On the 22nd we have an autumn budget. What better way to tell the country she cares, and tell her Chancellor to finally put an end to the biggest social injustice this country has ever known, the robbing of the former ASW steelworkers’ pensions. We won’t hold our breath, though, as the lies her government tells to deny these families what is rightfully theirs are beyond belief.
Shame on this Prime Minister, and MPs who are too spineless to support families. John Benson Dinas Powys, Vale of Glamorgan
