@Number10gov shows total disregard for #democracy

I used to be the kind of average middle class citizen that believed in government and supporting our national leaders.
I have always voted and enouraged others to participate in the democratic process (and will continue to do so).

But now I am beginnjng to wonder if I even live in a democracy.

Truly, can this government get any worse? They disregard the poor, even though five months ago they said they wouldnt, ignore the mentally ill and are now showing a China like attitude to democracy.

Doesn’t this scare anyone else?

Right now our government is putting into law what we are allowed to protest or not.

And this is not just about Israel, it’s about weapons, tobacco and fossil fuels. Read this from the independent:

“Under the plan all publicly funded institutions will lose the freedom to refuse to buy goods and services from companies involved in the arms trade, fossil fuels, tobacco products or Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank….
…The only exemption will be UK-wide sanctions decided by the Government in Westminster.”

We live in worrying times.

September 2015 David Cameron says they won’t scrap.the funding for free school meals.

This month news comes out that the funding for free school meals is being scrapped.

The government’s own task force reveals the appalling state of mental health provision in our country.
