Firstly – thanks to a fantastically deffiant mother, my Scoliosis (62 degrees) was corrected back to 11 degrees from the age of 5 months to 12 years.
Some terrifying & archaic treatment that is now banned in the UK – It was painful & like torture (involved a stretching table at a very old hospital) But from someone who was never supposed to walk & was nicknamed the “Banana Baby” – I thank her every day of my life for allowing this treatment to happen…
I feel for you..
I also hear you, I think sadly we have had many years of stealth benefits bashing that has turned people against each other, which deflected away from what was really going on – ie the Elite gathering forces to create an empire for themselves & move the rest of us out to slum areas where we are not in their way.
I have done it myself, I have been upset, working daily, being exhausted & still hungry despite working hard, yet neighbours have cars (disability) & mobility scooters & are paid to stay home… HOWEVER, the sad thing is, They are the stereotype themselves. Seemingly (or actually) flashing the cars & extra help in the faces of people like me… Their friends & family use the cars etc, they come home with bags & bags of shopping, They have extra help from all sorts of agencies because of their “disabilities” —
BUT since I have WOKEN UP, I realise its not their fault, Its a Government ploy to turn people against each other….
They may well have an illness / disability & they have been caught in the benefits/welfare trap that was cleverly honey lined for so long…
Make yourself appear more Vulnerable & you will get more! So some people were drawn in – I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND – A culture of “I’m Entitled – so GIVE IT TO ME” deeveloped over years & years….
It was designed to make the people who worked (in the same areas/classes/social statures) get angry at their own peers – so we didnt get angry at those who were breaking off & selling our NHS, Closing our hospitals, closing our firestations, raiding our pensions, selling our Social Housing, cutting our earnings etc etc
ITS miss-direction on a grand grand scale….
And to be frank its just one tiny part of it!
We have to support those who genuinely need the support & if that means paying for a few who play the system, so they get extra help & a car for their kids to drive around in, then so be it – As I would rather my tax paid for YOU & them than for Bankers & Starbucks & Duck ponds & 2nd homes for MP’s etc.
I firmly believe as the UK populace WAKE UP to whats really going on, we will all help you…
I hope 2013 will be a turning point where the Smoke & Mirrors policies are exposed fully
MY love to you Elaine
