I am no scholar

Post  cyprussyd on Fri Oct 20, 2017 12:53 pm

No degrees, no GCSE's, no economic diplomas and not clever enough to know the answers, probably like most people.

I do however know right from wrong, good from bad and injustice when I see it and in my humble opinion I can't remember a time where a government had such contempt for the poor, the sick and those who we once called working class.

I watched BBC Question Time last night with a panel consisting of a labour MP, a LIBDEM lady, a vicar, a conservative supporting business man and Chris Grayling.

All, including the conservative supporting business man condemned the rollout of universal credit. All said the idea of universal credit was a good idea but the rollout was causing real suffering.

Chris Grayling's expression and body language never changed, he was totally uninterested in any suffering or way of reducing that suffering.

Government ministers are trotted out on news and discussion shows to give the party line, record jobs, help for the poor, more nurses,doctors, teachers, firefighters, ambulance staff, police. We have never had it so good so shut up you poor and sick people because we care about you.

I hear that and think good, I feel better now, I then turn on the news and become confused.


  1. Record number of foodbanks
  2. NHS in crisis
  3. Schools creaking and at breaking point
  4. Doctors surgeries closing
  5. Violent crime at record levels
  6. Prisons at boiling point
  7. Disabled people dying after been assessed fit for work


The list goes on and my little uneducated brain can't compute, all is well but at the same time it isn't.

All my little brain keeps saying to me is, "Someone's telling porkies my son, someone is telling fibs"

Or to be fair maybe they are almost telling the truth, all is indeed well in their world,in their social circle and maybe the only little fib is when they say they care about ordinary Joes like me, my circle of friends.

I kind of have the same problem with Corbyn's Labour, the wise who read books and know about these things tell me to be careful, he is a  dangerous commie lefty who will destroy the country, bloody hell, that woke me up.

But my little brain looks around and thinks, destroy the country, can't see a lot more to destroy. He is a commie lefty, is he? 
I listen to him and his shadow ministers with an open mind, OK it's just a little mind but it is open.

Try as I may to hate him and his commie ways I kinda like what they all say, wish I was educated and could spot the flaws.

Hang on, I heard what you said, he will bankrupt us, that's the flaw but if my tax bill rises but I can see a doctor, feel safe out at night, know my grandson is getting a better education and can afford Aldi instead of the foodbank, maybe bankrupt may not be so bad for my social circle.

I'm sure my clever friends will point out the faults but, I like and trust Corbyn but I don't trust any of the government's front bench, maybe it's that simple, maybe I should just back who I trust and believe and leave the clever bits and the complicated bits to clever people.

And you can be quite sure that Chrs Grayling is not one of those clever people. How he is a Minister I do not know. I can only assume he knows where some Tory skeletons are buried Evil or Very Mad
