The Sunday Mirror has given us a taste of what is soon to come from the Labour Party by printing an appalling attack on an elderly woman unable to work due to illness because she had the cheek to save up and spend a few quid on her wedding.
Todays top exclusive features the story of Richard Broom and Sandra Gallagher who recently spent £5000 on a marriage ceremony and reception after they saved money from their benefits and “borrowed from friends and family”. You will rarely read a piece in any newspaper so dripping with class hatred and contempt for the poor. Gallagher, who the paper calls a ‘granny bride’, is unable to work due to a serious health condition whilst her partner is unemployed. A few years ago Gallacher would have been a pensioner, but due to the rise in the women’s pension age she is now a scrounger, and so fair game for vicious bullying from the tabloid press. The paper even attacks her for using the NHS, disclosing details of an intimate procedure she had some years ago for medical reasons. Even the sex lives of sick and disabled people will now be used against them if they are unable to work due to their health. Or at least they will be if the target happens to be a woman.
This gutter journalism has not appeared out of the blue. Both the Sunday and Daily Mirror are little more than mouth-pieces for the Labour Party. Be in no doubt, this is a warning shot from the establishment left that any lingering trace of sympathy for the poor has been extinguished. They have been quite happy to exploit the suffering of sick, disabled and unemployed people in the past, but now they are lining up with Iain Duncan Smith and the Daily Mail to join the grotesque onslaught against people with nothing. This couple lived on just over £100 a week each after housing costs, and even this is dubious unless her unemployed partner was also paid a carer’s premium. The current rate of Jobseeker’s Allowance is just £73.10. The Sunday Mirror is either lying or omitting crucial facts to encourage their readers to hate this couple.
This is what we can now come to expect from a left-wing media dominated by public school toffs and a party where Oxbridge wankers are currently trying to jostle each other out of the way for the leadership. George Osborne must be pissing himself watching a Labour newspaper softening up the public for his planned social security cuts. This strategy has already cost the Labour Party their votes in Scotland and much of Wales. Now they seem happy to lose the working class across England as well. They do not fucking deserve us. They never have.
