    Politicians May Never of had it so Good but The Poor and Vulnerable have Never
    had it so Bad under the Tory Tinpot Dictatorship

    I Do Wish the Public at Large would Wake Up from their Trivial and Selfish Little
    Worlds show some Human Compassion For the Poor and Vulnerable Stop being
    Brainwashed by the ” Mainstream Media ” and Stand Up to the Tory Wealth
    Supremacist Regime and DEMAND that their Welfare Policies be Substantially
    Improved to Provide the Poor and Vulnerable with the Support they Need instead
    of being in their Tiny Little Worlds Thinking Only of Christmas Presents Pahlava

    Christmas is Supposed to be a Time For Giving so the Least the Public at Large
    can do is Stop being so Servile to the Regime and Show Moral and Active Support
    to Humans in the United Kingdom who are Poor and Vulnerable
