Hi ,i knew the vote wasn't binding ,but if this govt had any compassion they would abandon the whole sorry mess.
10 million + , and another 10 million not directly in the steamroller's path , would agree with that one.

A " Poll Tax " moment for the Government ... this time around , they're going ahead ... with consequences a little too dire to imagine even if the policy makers cannot see beyond their salaries , and gold plated pensions.

Statistics are one thing ... human beings again , a poor second.
"If this government had any compassion"...That's the problem they haven't.
I sometimes feel with Social Services they blame me for having a disabled child so I could annoy them, they have absolutely no idea how much my life changed forever the day he was born.
Yesterday, after complaining by email to the care company directors that the local care manager lied to about a factual matter, and circulating it to everyone involved in an earlier complaint to Social Services, I had a reply from one of the directors. Did she promise an urgent investigation? No.
Did she apologise? No.
Instead she told me that I had absolutely no right to send copies of my complaint to nine different people!
Needless to say I wrote an immediate reply saying I could write to whoever I wanted etc. etc. What she didn't know was that CQC have already had copies of my other formal complaints which remain unacknowledged or dealt with, so in fact, she fell right into the trap I set, only she hadn't realised.
As yet, I haven't heard from Social Services about this either.

Sorry about that ,my mistake what was i thinking .

Good for you Bun ,that should stir them up a bit.
I think the SS have the same attitude to towards us poor sods who have to deal with them ,as the bus driver who said
he could not stick to the time table because he had to stop to let people on and off .
