A couple of points 1- there is absolutely nothing I can do about it, yes I can go and speak to my local MP, I can write to 10 Downing St, start a petition etc Ė but it wont do anything. 2 Ė If I am being honest, I donít really care about the people who are gonna be seriously effected by benefit cuts, Iím sorry I donít. I have two children, one of which has just recently popped into the world and my sole focus is to make sure they are happy well fed and safe.

Currently (touching wood while writing this) money is ok, donít get me wrong I would love to win the euroís on Friday but I am not panicking every time I go to the cash machine and my life is pretty good. When things change, maybe I will have different outlook, but while life is good Ė Iím going to stopped worrying
Apathy helps no one.

To quote:

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
