well once again this Torie government has proved just how much they value the common people. Our mistake was to vote the entitled into power, and let them rob us, and crush us under foot. We are only their means to making wealth, there are more of us then there are of them, so if we die in the process of making them rich, well thats a fair exchange. Women in the main, have always had a difficult life, having to wear many hats over the period of a lifetime, as well as being a daughter, wife, cook, cleaner, washerwoman, and mother, she was expected to have to work too, as her husbands income was not enough to sustain their not unfrugal lifestyle. In return she was promised a pension and retirement from having to slave in the labour market from the age of 60. Now with this government we find that women have been summarily robbed of 6 years contibutions, while their retirement age has been shoved along by another 6 years. This being done in the sleezy underhand way of the typical Torie tactic of smoke and mirrors. The women have been left with nothing to sustain them for another 6 years, when most are already ready to retire, after a busy and very hard life. Most will not see their pension, through ill health and expiring before they are allowed to claim it. This affront to the women who have raised the next generation of workers, and done so much to enrich society as a whole, caring and nurturing for the young and the old alike. These women have been disrespected totally, by a government that is supposed to look after the people who voted for them. Rather than them enriching those that have, they are robbing the poor, the disadvantaged and even the handicapped. Syphoning the money into the bank accounts of million and billionares. This is an obscene state of affairs. And they carry on with there haulocaust uninterupted. It is about time Karma began to catch up with this particularly nasty group of people. Who have no empathy, sympathy or idea what an ordinary life entails, as they have their money all nicely put away, and safe in an off shore account. So they never have to worry where the next bottle of champagne is coming from, or how expensive their next tin of caviar might be. And we, the ordinary people suffer. However, push too long, and too far, and things like revolution begin to be talked about…and the unthinkable being thought of. These people are so grossly ignorent, and so sure of their own supremacy, that they go on with their wanton destruction, until there is a huge explosion. And then they become the victims…of their own vileness. It happened in France, when the wheel of revolution ran over the necks of the entitled, who cared not a jot, for the people. Indeed showed a marked contempt for them. Lets hope that these people never have to find out what damage a guillotine can do. In fact lets hope, that they see the light in time, before the darkness falls to carry them away. They are harming the weakest, most vulnerable and the least able to stand up for themselves. But some day soon, the wheel will turn, and I hope that we get the government we deserve, and they get the Karma that is their due too. Time for a change and all the women of the country will be leading the charge….
Sometimes it has seemed like my life was one long roller coaster ride, and I was just clinging on by my fingure nails. I grew up with parents that always seemed to be an enigma to me. A father that did everything he was told, and a mother who was more of a dictator than even Hitler. My mother to me, as I think back, was more a spiteful older sister, who had to have everything her way, and flew into a tantrum if it didn’t happen. She could never keep her hands to herself, and indeed, there was never any off button to her abuse. She kept on hitting you, with whatever was at hand until you escaped, or someone got between you. There is many a time I could have been really hurt, but saying anything about it later, got no remorse. “should have done as you were told then shouldn’t you”. Along with “you’ll do as your told or else”threateningly, there was always “because I said so” as if it were a commandment handed down by God himself. “you have to look after me, I’m your mother” more and more in later years, and after my father died. The constant way she kept on putting me and others down. No one ever seemed as perfect as she was. she would get something in her head, and she would go on and on and on, until you finally gave in and did it, just for some peace. Even though you knew it wasn’t right, or even fair. Dad more often than not, spent a good bit of time at work. something I later looked on, as his strategy of getting some peace from her. Because as soon as he came home she hector’d and harried him to do this, that and the other. Until it eventually took its toll, and he died…No doubt in my mind, it had been much of my mothers fault. She had killed him. Left to her, I would never have got married, or had children. I just seemed to be there to play the roll of unpaid slave, provider to her every whim and will. She always took from me, I wasn’t allowed money, she got rid of most of my friends, and generally made my life as miserable as she possibly could, I felt i was being punished all the time, for what crime I wasn’t sure. Luckily I found a man, just as stubborn as her, who took me away from her and her bullying. It took some time, but I began to slowly realise that she was different from other mothers. She didn’t seem to care about anyone but herself. She became very self orientated, and wore me down, until I eventually became ill, and was diagnosed with cancer. I had to have surgery, and she was taken into a home for respite care. I had to phone them and tell them that I could no longer look after her, and needed to be selfish for a time, to be able to heal. She had been diagnosed with dementia, and before this, I had almost lost my husband to cancer too but with luck he survived and is still here today, a walking miracle. so it was with great relief that I gave up looking after her. I haven’t been to see her, don’t want to. And my son, who she treated much the same as she did me, dosn’t want to see the old witch either. My family and I are getting to have a life. something she always seemed to begrudge me. goodness knows how long I and my man have left. But its our time now. She’d had hers and wanted mine too…but I won’t let her have it. As one of my friends in the know once said, you deserve a life just as much as she do’s. All the waste of years when I let her ruin things for me, I very much regret. but now I’m focus’d on what I want. And I’m able to please myself now. sometimes you just have to turn your back, walk away, and never look back. And that is what I’v had to do, to finally find myself and some peace.
