hunger

“Hunger is being used as a weapon against people to discipline them.”

Ken Loach on the cruelty of the benefits system.

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

Martin Niemöller

      Unfortunately Cindy, there is no doubt that the situation in the UK
      is going to get worse.
      It is very disturbing.
