Since when did the UK become a fascist country ?

In the wake of sickening news that the Conservatives propose to cap benefits it is clear that their policy of divide and rule is taking grip.
As with public sector pensions - where any decent thinking person realised that the issue was that many private sector pensions were too low - it is not that benefits are too high, the problem is that in many parts of this country wages are too low and rents are too high.Never mind that this travesty was never put before the electorate.
Never mind that they don't have a mandate to tear up the Welfare State.Just mind that it is both utterly immoral and a weasel-minded betrayal of the people of this country who fought for a better future during the last war.
Since 1948 we have had a universal system of collective entitlement: we all pay in, we all get something out when we need it.
It is the mark of a civilised society that it takes care of its most vulnerable members; the young, the elderly, the sick and the unemployed.
When did we DECIDE to stop doing this ?
This government is an utter disgrace.
Just as the people of this country defied the vilely warped regime of Hitler I spit in their millionaire faces with utter contempt.
