Sunday 08 March 2015.

Dear Mr cluck cluck, meaningless sound-bite, Cameron,

I couldn’t help but notice at your little soirée with the party air heads in Edinburgh that one of your main election planks will be your baseless, fact free, sound bite, slandering of the poor.

How was your stay in Edinburgh by the way, did everything meet your ill informed standards of entitlement?

I notice that you accuse Labour of being, “Spineless, weak, unprincipled, short-termist”, have you looked in the mirror recently?

Ending the “something for nothing” culture could, if you addressed it properly, cost a great deal less than Iain Duncan Smiths shambolic Universal Credit. You could simply concentrate on Westminster and the City of London and end the well documented something for nothing culture of greed, entitlement and dubious and illegal practices that see billions siphoned into the hands of the most corrupt people on Earth.

But no, you expect the poor to pay the price for the failure and corruption of the rich and powerful. You tell us, your opponents, to stop “bleating” about your austerity regime. Oh really, where did this magic word come from if not from you? You even promised us permanent austerity as you wined and dined at the lavish Lord Mayors banquet.

You say your “welfare revolution” started in Scotland when “Iain Duncan Smith went to the Easterhouse estate in Glasgow where family after family had never worked, where the young people heard this: leave school, drop out, sign on – repeat as required”. Where is the proof, Mr Cameron, where is the peer reviewed study and report that not only was this the case on the Easterhouse estate, but is endemic in poor communities across the nation?

You slander the poor, accuse us of a culture of entitlement when the whole thing is made up of whole cloth in your own prejudiced minds. You entirely ignore the wide spread and profound suffering of the poor, children going hungry, people dying while you heap on policy after policy that drives poverty in the UK.

Your endless attacks on the poor and vulnerable are based on a tissue of lies, slander and spineless bullying and another five years of you is unthinkable.
