They only care about the rich

As a grandparent I was extremely moved when I watched Ms Dorrell on question time confront our MP Amber Rudd about tax credits.

She voted for them thinking they were on the side of hard working people, what a fallacy, the only people they support are the rich.

Nobody should have to rely on any kind of credits to feed their children, this country has gone mad.

We used to be top in manufacturing and engineering, our steel the best in the world, trains built to last still running in India and other countries.

What infuriates me more is, having worked for over 40 years to be told by some Etonian boy born with a silver spoon, that the British people don’t work hard enough.

To compare us to the Chinese is an insult to both cultures but then that is their tactics, divide and rule.

What are the youth of today supposed to do when the only jobs out there are zero hours or just sixteen hours a week?

Maybe they should become politicians or peers, they do all right for little or no common sense.
