The Chancellor, George Osborne (â€˜boy Georgeâ€™), of the â€˜No Frillsâ€™ Conservative Party said his budget would â€˜pay for the past and prepare for the futureâ€™.
The same was said in the year 2000 by the leaders of Chesapeake City Council in Virginia, USA.
There, their no frills approach has meant that there are regular sewer breaks costing the public up to $30,000 in damages each time.
Chesapeake was also reported in 2008 to be one of the worst cities to help disabled people, and Boy George seems to be following this regressive path by trying to reduce the number of people with disabilities claiming allowances that help them overcome their difficulties.
It was the Conservatives under Margaret Thatcher and John Major who first introduced much of the support disabled people have benefited from in the last 30 years.
Yet now, in one foul swoop boy George looks likely to relegate disability rights to the confines of academic literature.
How can William Hague, the man who introduced the Disability Discrimination Act, serve in a government which will withdraw support from the very people he gave the right to define themselves as disabled?
How can David Cameron, the man whoâ€™s late son, like me, had epilepsy and was helped a great deal by the State, come to support these measures, which mean that the people least able to support themselves will be paying the price for the greedy bankers who were the cause of deficit?
