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 threshold.
Those below the threshold 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 harass 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.
