Libdem Child's (mainly) weekly thoughts




You're probably wondering whether this is really a teenager's blog or not. Well it is. I believe in the Liberal principles of fairness, equality and community. I may only be fourteen but I can hold a good debate on politics. Honest, I can.

Osborne Set to Cut the Poor, Again!

George Osborne is allegedly going to cut welfare for pensioners and the unemployed with a below inflation rise. This is the worst possible and most cruel thing to do to those in need around Christmas time. This means that the poorest will have to suffer at "the time of giving". Instead of the chancellor putting more of a strain on   the rich he may decide to cut from the most vulnerable members of society instead. The poor may not be able to even afford the bare essentials because of rising prices and less money in their pockets.

Time for the Lib Dem leadership, which is long overdue, to start distancing ourselves from these punishing welfare cuts which is causing genuine hardship. Come on Clegg, enough is enough. We need to intervene and stop the poor from suffering. Where are our values?
