Each pronouncement from the chamber augers life and death.
Some are cast upon the stony ground to wither
While others are raised to the heights.
For politics kills.
As the politicians play their games of intrigue and power
Setting traps and playing tricks
In order to win
In the battle of wills.
Outside in the real world where desperation drives action
And minds cannot find a way out
From the pressure,
Opher – 1.11.2019
Whether it is war or social services, the decisions made kill people.
Ten years of Tory austerity has blighted millions of lives. The food banks, homeless and zero hours trap is testimony to that.
