David Cameron is happy with health apartheid and asymmetric devolution - anybody who complains is a "Sour Little Englander". And now this twisted public school cretin is wittering on about mending our broken society. Of course, those who were little boys/girls in the 1980s, are banging on about what an improvement this statement is on the dread days of Thatcher.
But it's all words. All crap. David Cameron's government actively backs murder in England by refusing to stand up for the electorate on the health apartheid issue. The most you will get from the Tories is reference to a "postcode lottery" regarding health - as though it was a problem affecting the UK as a whole. The fact that Scotland and Wales receive far higher funding via the Barnett Formula is always ignored. Or played down to such an extent you would think it didn't really matter. Meanwhile, "British" Cameron bangs on about "a Scottish Empire" and having ancestors who were involved in the same.
The democratic rights of the people of England matter not a jot to him. And he also tells lies about the EU.
The man is so far removed from modern day England - or Britain for that matter - such a heartless spinner of pap, that he takes my breath away.
Thatcher said there was no such thing as society - people were too dependent on the State in her view. She stated that the country was made up of families and individuals - first you must help yourself then your neighbour. Governments could only act through people. That was the full gist of her 1987 interview, reproduced below.
"I think we've been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it's the government's job to cope with it. 'I have a problem, I'll get a grant.' 'I'm homeless, the government must house me.' They're casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It's our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There's no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation."
I remember reading some old guru writing on a similar theme in the 1960s: "Tend at least your own garden. When it is without weeds, then help your neighbour".
Of course I disagreed with Thatcher. But not half as much as I disagree with the lying, twisted, self-serving anti-English/England politicians of the current day.
