Can she ever get anything right ?
When you run a project in engineering I've always found over a career of 40 years that the first thing to do is come up with what seems a good idea, and then go to the sharp end and talk to those very people who actually will need to put it into place
And blow me. I always learned something important, from those people.
So, Mr. David Gauke Works & Pensions, should have said OK. I'm going to pretend that I'm a claimant. What do I need to do first.
OK, I phone up. OK, I've got no money, so I can't ring up. So I'm FxxxD
Right there you've got a show stopper. My ten year old son could have seen that coming. Burke didn't !
How the fuck do these idiots get these jobs for god's sake ? Cos they talk posh ? ........ I could do far better myself.
Then suppose I get through after paying eight quid to hang on just a minute or two longer. Thank you for waiting, our lines are busy ..................... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH ! Me money's run out !
Then when you've got through and given your information and been told you're eligible you're then told "Oh, it'll be about six weeks before you get a penny" ................. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH !!!!! WTF !
Are you telling me that it takes six fucking weeks to program a computer with "Pay Mr. ABC .... xxx amount every 4 weeks"
Of course it doesn't. It will take a programer a minute or less to put that information into a computer. The clerk in the Job Centre's got all the person's details already. So why six weeks .............. Answer is because "They don't give a shit" They don't have a problem. YOU have the problem. And they don't. It's that simple.
You'll start to lose the will to live.
Then the magic words "George Osborne's apprentice from the Treasury" are spoken ........... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH !!!!
David Gauke, should be renamed Bauke, pronounced Burke. Transfer him to Wales to study manure or something. Transfer him to somewhere he can't screw up anything important
Now if you're a UK Expat old age pensioner like me living in Thailand, this is just typical of the shenanigans that this and to be fair every previous UK government over the last fifty odd years got up to.
Our old age pension is frozen. It never rises, no not a penny not ever. Why ? Because I don't live in the right country.
Australia and Canada are also frozen, The United States is not frozen. Go to my website and you'll see which countries are frozen. You'll learn that those in their 90's are getting about 40 pounds a week to live on. It's a bloody disgrace.
Does anyone really think Mrs May, Dave Gauke, Hammond, (Is he still playing with his organ ?) or any of them are lying awake of a night worried about everything. Nah. Not a chance. They've all hit the jackpot. They'll never ever see a poor day in their whole lives. They get 100,000 quid a year plus expenses ........................... No, they're fireproof. Or so they think
What sort of morals and ethics do these people have. The answer is "I'm a man of many principles, and if you don't like them Prime Minister I can soon find some others"
Last week I sent Mrs May a stinging rebuke by snail mail all the way from here in Thailand.
I also included an INVOICE for 15, 000.00 Pounds which I know for sure they'll never pay me. But it really needs these sort of shock tactics to get their attention. There are 500,000 UK Expat pensioners robbed every month till they die
What are they doing about it ........................ NOTHING ! ZILCH ! ZERO ! NOWT !
Oh, hang on, they're stolen our right to vote. That's to make sure we don't have any leverage whatsoever
No doubt some clerk will send me a note to say they've sent my letter to Works & Pensions. I'm going around in circles.
Both Labour and Conservative are responsible for the present shambles. Kick all of them out because they don't give a damn about ordinary men and women. If they do, they've a very poor way of showing it. Am I wrong ?
