Conservative Party abusing the old, using public humiliation of the tired , confused and bewildered. This must STOP ! ACT NOW. Amazing video
The exploitation and abuse of the old is a matter of rising concern. Consider this clip of a clearly tired, bewildered OAP. Forced to repeat endlessly, meangless, political dogma like some highly trained house pet.
The strain is clearly beginning to show, the rapid eye movements, the carelessly assembled clothing in dull colours, the catatonic stare as the brain tries to connect.... as frighteningly the first signs of Alzheimers creeps in.
We are all facing tough times - please find it in you heart and give generously - The Dame Lady Jane Baroness Pauline Nevill - Jones fund can help these people who, let's face it, have earned a decent retirement... send anything you can to David Cameron C/O Conservative Party Bide - a - Wee Home for Distressed Not so Gentlefolk in their Time.
Next week don't miss our call for doughty working class champion, Baroness Brenda Dean, of Thornton-le-Fylde, Privy Councillor General Secretary of SOGAT at the time of Rupert Murdoch's battles with them and other trades unions and now a mouthpice on for Nu Labour, frittering away her time hanging about the House of Lords.
Except that is when she is working on her second term as Chairman of Covent Garden Market Authority, a post she has held since 1 April 2005 which was recently renewed as the personal gift of her "very, very, good friend" Lord Rooker (The Authority consists of the Chairman and up to 7 members all appointed by the Secretary of State.) in his role as DeFRA Minister for Sustainable Food and Farming.
Her 3 day a week role for the pittance of £48,521 means that she will be very much involved in the redevelopment (including re-locating the US Embassy) of the New Covent Garden Market (NCGM) site (Project Chrysalis - consultants PricewaterhouseCoopers) at Nine Elms in Vauxhall, London. This major program will lead to the selection of a private development partner early in 2009 and will provide one of the largest development opportunities in London for the next decade.
Brenda is still able even at the age of 66 able to drag herself along to Board meetings as a non-Executive Director of Taylor Wimpey PLC (Share price 12 months ago 217 p today 15p Divvy paid last year 15.75p per share) where she struggled along on fees of £50, 000 in 2007 up from £45,000, Dawson Holding PLC (£34,000 in 2007 and £29,000 in 2006) and National Air Traffic Services.
