I’ve been told I have to start a blog of the letters I have been writing to David Cameron recently, so like a good girl I got on with it. I am a 33 year old mother of two who suffers from moderate/severe CFS and severe depression with intermittent ideation. I have been on Incapacity Benefit for most of a decade. How’s that for a frank and honest introduction?
I have been known to write the odd scathing letter, mainly for friends who need help with housing or Tax Credits claims, but more recently to our beloved PM, David Cameron. I do this with the support and inspiration of Keith Ordinary Guy, without whom none of these letters would exist. I do this for the ordinary people who are suffering and dying at the hands of Cameron and his cronies. I do this for the tabloid readers who are so incited to hate by propaganda and sensationalism that they would rather see a benefits scrounger on the streets than let them have even a penny of their hard-earned tax. We really are all in this together, my friends, but not the way that Cameron would have you believe.
My thanks and gratitude to Jim Dunn and Sonjia Galloway for kicking me up the arse and making me start this blog. I hope I will stay strong enough to continue it. With support, perhaps I will.
