It seems that Theresa May believes that a $5500 payment to all tenants of Grenfell Tower is the way forward.
Apparently this payment is made in most cases where the tenant has to move from council provided accommodations to some other alternative.
I would question these payments on the basis of :- 1. The accommodations should be insured by the tenant. 2. Since when does the government have the right to be benevolent.
In the first case, imagine for one minute you are the owner of a private accommodation that gets burned to the ground. Have you ever heard of an instance where the government comes to your door and hands out money? What they would say is you should be insured.
The second case is by far more important, of which I would be happy to put in one weeks salary to this cause, if every politician puts in a weeks salary.
The reason for this is that we do not pay government to collect taxes to draw on it as if a private bank account to dish out to whomever they decide needs a handout. The only amount sanctioned by the people is enough to keep the government functional and no more.
The notion that you can create a bottomless pit to throw money that is all too apparent in every phase of government , leaving the legacy to be paid by our children in the future.
Additionally history shows us, that to the permanently unemployed classes, they will vote ONLY for those that create the most personal benefit for them. In other words under the guise of being benevolent, they are really obtaining votes simply on the basis of freebee’s they can accumulate.
This can also be said for refugees and others that take advantage of a free social care system. At some point the takers will outnumber the providers by a long way, and make the burden so horrendous that the system will collapse…. it MUST collapse!
So to return to my offer of one weeks salary I would be more than happy to help those in need…….. If all members of government would do the same….. and would vouch right now that not a single one would do so!
