These are the thoughts of an injured soul about life, love, politics and anything else that comes to light. Often a rant sometimes a tribute, it isn't for you it's for me.
Maybe some will see themselves and empathise, others will will hate it and possibly me as well. But, if it provokes a response or thought and maybe some small change then it will be worth it.
Hearing as we have all done, unless of course anaesthetised by football or lager or perhaps both, of the greed of Politicians and their squirming on the hook of exposure; how different are the lives of the Paymaster from their servants.
I begrudge them not a salary with a value that removes from them the constant worry of survival in an expensive and often hostile world. That is a need for servants of the people to be just that, enabling them to get on with the job. But this greed is too much to contemplate; several steps beyond that which is acceptable. Worst these fools believe their own rhetoric, exhorting us that to keep within a set of rules was sufficient to prove the worth of their exorbitant lifestyles. Lives that most of us, even those of us quite well provided for, can only dream of.
It's the Tax you see. Whilst telling us all, often quite angrily as was I recently, that any payment including those which most would feel are legitimate costs before tax, like money paid for meals on duty or phone calls to loved ones when far away etc, must be taxed unless fitting into very strict and somewhat petty rules. These paid 'servants of the people' get all of these rather dubious at best,at worst some might even say fraudulent ( I could not possibly comment) expenses free of the tax their paymasters have had to stump up in the first place to employ them and fund the machinery of the state they allege they run.
It goes to prove all of the depressing truths of life.
Bad things happen to good people.
Life's a bitch and then you die.
There are only two certainties in life; Death and Taxes.
Except of course as regards this last one, the last part doesn't count if you are an MP!
