I am worried for my country – and by this I mean the UK, rather than Scotland on its own. The way that cuts are targeted are inevitably going to hurt more for the vulnerable and marginalised than for those with more secure incomes and trust funds. It seems to me that politicians with a privileged background and lifestyle are encouraging the mad media to stir up hatred towards the unfortunates of our country. I know this is something I have blogged about previously, but we are now in a position to see more of the consequences than before.
Right now I am deeply saddened, I doubt I shall ever have the energy to person the barricades, but I can at least make a plea that someone, somewhere in Westminster listens to the more caring attitudes that come from the nether regions of the UK.
