So George Osbourne has just delivered his annual war against social justice and equality, the day started with Jeremy Corbyn tackling David Cameron on the national pollution levels and lack of investment in the green energy sector.
In the budget speech George Osbourne yet again froze fuel duty for the sixth budget in a row, this might sound like it benefits motorists, but it benefits the oil and gas industry more, with low fuel prices should we be using this income in green investment and not letting the oil companies get away with paying their way?
With such measures announced today to cripple the public sector and destroy true localism the conservatives thought it was funny, you couldn’t wipe the smile of their faces.
Their was an announcement of 150 million pounds for the homeless, I would be interested in finding out the details of that and how this will help those of us who are homeless in Brighton and Hove.
Nevertheless being a red, green and blue city we probably wont see much investment, I have asked councillor Clare Moonan about the homelessness fund and how that will be spent in Brighton and Hove, I await an answer.
George Osbourne says ‘We are in this together’, absolutely we are not in this together, I was told today that the emergency accommodation I am staying in is suitable under current housing regulations. There is no hot water, lack of cooking and laundry facilities, the room sizes for over £900 a month is unlawful.
The housing hide behind the fact that its temporary accommodation but acknowledge I will be in this accomendation for over a year due to being in Band C.
This banding does not acknowledge my medical condition and therefore is wrong, we need more investment in more social housing allowing people to contribute positively to society and not feel like they are locked away for being unwell.
