In retaliation to their blood sucking from the sick and disabled this coalition of snakes and weasels will pay for their cruel policies at the ballot box. The tory and libdems will be minced. What an occassion that shall be. Time for mass celebration. I would prefer that they self destruct rather than continue to plague us like the most necrotic flesh eating bug which they so resemble.

This Tory Led Coalition has the life cycle of a parasitic worm.

It was only three years ago that David Cameron invited the Media/journalists into his very own home before the general election in 2010 and paraded his disabled son Ivan (when he was alive) before the camera’s.

The objective of this was to con the people/electorate into believing that he (Cameron) was a kind, caring person that understood what it was like for people to live with disabilities.

What an evil, two-faced, despicable, lying deceitful specimen of the human race Cameron is. He paraded his very own son/blood before the worlds press like you would expect at a Circus Freak Show.

Now you have Cameron ordering Ian Duncan Smith to execute the biggest financial onslaught to the entire population of the sick and disabled to inflict severe financial hardship whilst at the last budget he gave a big tax break to the richest people in society.

Financially Slaughter and take from the most vulnerable in society and pass it straight onto the richest in society. Cameron and Duncan smith are evil, pure and simple.

Snakes and weasels sounds like quite a good boardgame.

Just to get the facts right.

IDS did not propose these cuts—he denounced them as unrealistic—it was done as a parting shot by Cameron’s advisor Steve Hilton on leaving the Downing Street team.

MarkAustin & 5.

David Cameron said during the Final Televised 2010 Electoral Debate Live to the entire nation live on television : I David Cameron believes that a good test for any good country and it’s government is judged upon how it cares for it’s most vulnerable in society in good times as well s bad times. He David Cameron then went on to say : If you are sick, disabled, frail, vulnerable or the POOREST in society you have FEAR if he (David Cameron) becomes prime-minister because he would protect that group of vulnerable people in society if he gets into Downing Street as prime Minister.

Ian Duncan Smith has shown that he is no different than Cameron and is happy to go along with slaughtering the most vulnerable in society and make them carry the biggest financially burden by suffering the most because of a crisis that was coursed by banks, financial, institutions and the wealthiest in society.

Slight error due to missing the word (nothing) out, which should have made the paragraph in question read as follows :

He (David Cameron) then went onto say : If you are sick, disabled, frail, vulnerable or the POOREST in society you have ( NOTHING ) to FEAR if he David Cameron becomes prime minister because he would protect that group of vulnerable people in society if he gets into Downing Street as prime minister.
