On May 14, a march will be held in London by pro-cut supporters called Rally Against Debt.
Whilst I respect the views people have on how to reduce the deficit, I believe this will be a distasteful and insensitive march especially given that it is openly supported by Conservative MP’s such as Daniel Hannan and because it is a march in support of current, fixed government policy which the coalition have no intention of changing.
There are many people in this country who’s lives are going to be badly affected by government cuts. The last thing those people need are the wealthy, the privileged, television personalities and politicians kicking them while they’re down. The right wing of UK politics have got their way, the cuts are happening. This event will only serve to rub those cuts in the faces of those very badly affected.
