It was two and a half years ago that the Conservative Party came to power and the 74% of the public that didn't want the Tories in power comforted themselves that at least as part of a coalition with the Liberal Democrats, the nasty party that spewed out Margaret Thatcher would have their wings clipped.
Fast forward to today and the Tories have not only bumped up unemployment to 3 million, decimated the Public Sector and tripled student fees, but they have also tried to sell off the forests and are presently deep into plans to sell the NHS to the highest bidder.
None of these things were in the manifesto but just when you think that they couldn't be anymore brazen and breathtakingly shameless, the latest wheeze from the Tories is to privatise the police force.
The home secretary, Theresa May, has said 'front line policing can be protected by using the private sector to transform services provided to the public' and that she hoped the 'business partnership programme would be in place next spring.'
Private companies providing police services for profit? We are expected to swallow a business that makes money from arresting and incarcerating people because giving the private sector free rein to run things in the UK has been such a whopping success already. Now we are going to let them loose on protecting us and let them turn a profit doing it?
So on and on they go, finishing off what Margaret Thatcher started and selling off the country so in the future your ability to receive health care or have your burglary investigated will come down to your ability to pay.
I'm baffled why we are not out on the streets and burning effigies of David Cameron and the rest of the Conservative half-wits.
