via Elderly left stranded again as Tories axe vital bus services – Mirror Online.

As I reflected on this article, my mind moved to the open question:

Why has David Cameron abandoned the elderly who are traditional Tory voters?

Any thoughts?

  2. The abandonment of the elderly is the same as soldiers coming back from overseas combat, sustaining injuries, often permanent, having now served their purpose, now relegated to the rubbish heap of human debris, these people that once supported the Tories, are not without recrimination, to collude with the establishment, as if you are all part of that team is reprehensible, time for the younger generation to know what they will eventually become, Parliament represents those who are in Parliament and those who are closely associated within this club, the one thing you can be assured of, no admission to outsiders permitted,

  3. All current po9litical parties, even the recently relaunched communists, Left Unity Party, have no interest in pensioners at all, including women state pension 60 being lost that all politicians are taking as a pay rise in 2015 general election year.
    See who loses most or all state pension altogether: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/state-pension-at-60-now

    Winter Fuel Allowance is going in 2015.
    With benefits lost, you cannot access Cold Weather Payments.
    Meranwhile one MP put in an expenses claim to heat his horse’s stable.

    Europe allows pensioners to be abandoned, as Austerity in Europe takes pensions from all sources to pay debt. That is what bail-outs actually are. Pensions funds taken to keep banks from going bust.

    Politicians in England use the pension money for their ever growing expense bills. I think I saw IDS with a £39 breakfast expenses claim, whilst 13 million struggling to make ends meet each day.

    Women aged 60 last and this year are taking themselves off the electoral roll, as no party offers them a thing.

    National Insurance is going and replaced with Earnings Tax that merges NI with Income Tax (so does that mean a 12% rise in Income Tax?).

    State Pension taken and benefits being lost, so what was all the deferred wages paid into NI over a lifetime in work? Yet an EU Migrant gets benefit and disability with no NI credit history at all.


  4. David Cameron probably knows that he will not win the next General Election either outright or in Coalition so he is not interested in pensioners who ride buses only those who can afford cars in constituencies like his in Witney Oxfordshire.

    He has already been promised a big job at the UN after 2015 and in any event has more than enough money to pursue other interests.

    The problem of urban bus services for the elderly ,people without cars ,the jobless and the working poor is of no interest to the David Cameron,s of this world.

    For them, people are either wealthy enough to give money to the Conservative Party and earn £250,000 gbp a year or more or they fall below that threshhold.

    Those below the threshhold are cannon fodder for the taxman and are there to be lied to and not represented.

    Those above it are looked after and given special treatment.

    Poor pensioners ,the not very intelligent and the inarticulate are the “useless eaters” of Great Britain but no politician can say so.

    Thus the question Dr Alf asks has a clear and unambiguous answer rooted in realpolitik,warped morality and the harsh calculations of a political elite who care only for themselves.

    The prescription of choice is to kill them off by stealth by rationing medical treatment ,putting them under stress,using the tax authorities to harrass them,taking away their bus services and forcing councils which refuse to merge to deny them Adult Social Care Services.

    Uncaring relatives who refuse to visit unless what little these people do have is gifted or is the subject of a will,kill off a few more of these pensioners through isolation,loneliness and depression
    Where that fails to work you let them kill themselves through their own stupidity by dumbing themselves down through mindless television, consuming unhealthy foods,taking too little exercise and drinking themselves to death through loneliness as one partner predeceases the other
