Title: The Queen is contemplating the future
Post by: Dic Penderyn on 25 Dec 2013 06:24PM
So the queen is contemplating the future as are many others at this moment though the future she envisions for her self and her family is a lot more comfortable than that facing many of us right now well I wish her and her family well and hope she can spare a thought for those suffering under this oppressive government lead by her cousin David.

The only thought the Queen has for those suffering under this government is 'thank the big man she is not one of them'  were it not so she would have Cameron cowering before her as she had him order the abandonment of these welfare reforms and the removal of IDS from the British Parliament, preferably to stand in the Hague charged with crimes against humanity.

I did not know this so had a look.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Cameron

Quote
Through his paternal grandmother, Enid Agnes Maud Levita, Cameron is a lineal descendant of King William IV by his mistress Dorothea Jordan. This illegitimate line consists of five generations of women starting with Elizabeth Hay, Countess of Erroll, née FitzClarence, William and Jordan's sixth child,[12] through to Cameron's grandmother (thereby making Cameron a 5th cousin of Queen Elizabeth II).[13]

I ended up looking up Compasionate Conservatism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compassionate_conservative

Quote
Compassionate conservatism has been defined as the belief that conservatism and compassion complement each other. A compassionate conservative might see the social problems of the United States, such as health care or immigration, as issues that are better solved through cooperation with private companies, charities and religious institutions rather than directly through government departments.

so Food banks etc.


Quote
In the words of Magnet,[12]

    Compassionate conservatives [...] offer a new way of thinking about the poor. They know that telling the poor that they are mere passive victims, whether of racism or of vast economic forces, is not only false but also destructive, paralyzing the poor with thoughts of their own helplessness and inadequacy. The poor need the larger society's moral support; they need to hear the message of personal responsibility and self-reliance, the optimistic assurance that if they try – as they must – they will make it. They need to know, too, that they can't blame "the system" for their own wrongdoing.

Which is (of course) why there are so many old Etonians in the cabinet  >bigheadache<

Perhaps she might consider letting some of the least used buildings go to public housing use.

That could helpt to reduce the number of homeless people and increase the happiness of the nation.  >magicfairy<
