NICK CLEGG A CONTRADICTION OF AUSTERITY – If you ever think that those in Government could possibly understand the struggles of the hard working taxpayer then take a look at Nick Clegg and reality will clearly show that ‘Austerity’ is not something they know anything about.
Once again Clegg is off to the ski slopes while the rest of Britain languishes in misery where the average hard working family could barely scrape together enough money to take the kids to McDonald’s let alone go on lavish holidays.
Clegg of course is nothing like a member of the hard working British masses in fact he’s positively rolling in cash. He’s worth the best part of £2 million personally and his parents are dripping in cash.
Fancy a weekend break? For Clegg this is just a matter of hopping on a plane and heading off to the ski slopes where he can have fun and then relax in his family’s £7 million, 7 bedrooms, and 20 room Swiss (swish) ski chalet.
It was only a few days before running away from the stresses of his job that he had the gumption to sit in the Commons, surrounded by an equally out-of-touch Eton sorority, and say during the Budget that we are “All in this together.”
Well if that’s the case Nick, would you be a good chap and call the pilot? I really could do with a break, although I have to admit that I’ve never been skiing in my life, but I’m sure the Champagne is of the finest vintage and would be thoroughly enjoyed.
I guess not, because obviously rubbing shoulder with the likes of the working class is not something you could every really find comfortable.
I personally don’t mind that Clegg or any other politician is rich and I care even less about their material possessions. What I do find offensive is when they attempt to try and brainwash me in to thinking they full understand and worse care.
The likes of Clegg have never had to do a hard day’s work in their lives and they have certainly never been in a position of austerity and having to go without.
As for hard work – Clegg even came under fire for forgetting his was supposed to be leading the country in the absence of Cameron, but I guess the ski slopes and his Swiss Chalet were far more pressing than the welfare of the country.
Politicians, as with Clegg, are selfish creatures. Sure they know how to sweet talk otherwise they would never been in the position they are. It often amazes me, when you hear and read of these types of stories why the public are so willing to vote them in. Shouldn’t we really be voting for people who are A) Intelligent; B) Have Moral Fortitude; C) Who Can Relate to the Public; and D) Actually Use Common Sense?
From the furniture in the House of Commons, and that’s all they are, it would appear not to be the case.
Just remember, next time winter comes around and your mum and dad or grandparents are freezing to death (literally) because they can’t afford to turn on the heating, warm yourself with the knowledge that the likes of Clegg will be cold, but having a ball on the slopes and then retreat to a lavish chalet and live the high life at your expense.
It’s amazing to think that Clegg, even if he doesn’t get the vote in the next General Election, will still be drawing his remuneration from the taxpayers purse each year. Can’t we simply hand him his P45 and hopefully he’ll set up permanent residence in his chalet and we’ll be done with him.
