Saturday 22 August 2015.

Dear Mr Cameron,

You know, we are going to have to do something about people in politics who look like adults but have the mentality and behaviour of sub-normal children.

Although this has nothing to do with you or your party, it appears that Andy Burnham has hinted that he may challenge the outcome of the Labour leadership election if Jeremy Corbyn wins. He makes no mention of challenging it if he himself wins, presumably on the grounds that in such an eventuality all will have been well, right and just and above board.

In his summer budget George Osborne increased the inheritance tax allowance saying that the current level was ‘not fair’, thus people can now pass up to £1 million on to their children free of inheritance tax. He also lowered corporation tax which will fall to 19% in 2017 and 18% by 2020. This is the same Osborne who abolished housing benefit for under-21s, created a new minimum wage (though deceitfully calling it a living wage) that won’t apply to under-25s, and replaced university maintenance grants with maintenance loans. And also the same Osborne who said, ‘So those who oppose any savings to Tax Credits will have to explain how on earth they propose to eliminate the deficit, let alone run a surplus and pay down debt’.

Osborne has the mind of an educationally sub-normal juvenile. Rewarding corporations and the rich and attacking the young and poor, telling us if we oppose such attacks we will have to explain how on earth we propose to eliminate the deficit, is utterly senseless gibberish from an economically illiterate juvenile.

Debbie Abrahams has called for Iain Duncan Smith to resign after it emerged the DWP created a leaflet about sanctions containing made-up quotes attributed to non-existent benefit claimants. It has been reported that the release of what we expect to be fudged figures on benefit death statistics will be next Thursday, just prior to a bank holiday with parliament in recess. And when Smith avoided a parliamentary debate on the bedroom tax he repeatedly shouted at reporters who wanted to know why he had skipped the debate, ‘I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you!’ and said, ‘I am not there because I am here’. Good grief!

It really is small wonder that Jeremy Corbyn has ignited the nation when there are so many arrogant juveniles in politics, none of whom are fit to hold office.
