I’m not making any resolutions this year – I don’t any way because I always break them, but each year I do make some wishes and sometimes they do come true. I did wish to have a story published, not just on my web-site, but in a book – and it happened, Thank you Buddhapuss Ink. for making it happen!
But this year, my wishes are not under my control – but with your help, they could be under our control or influence.
- Politicians to stop sniping at each other and pull together to get this country out of the mess we are in – it’s not about who’s right or who’s wrong – it’s about the UNITED Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so get your act together and unite to get us out of this mess.
- That MPs should stop looking at their own benefits and consider those who need benefits – do you really need £400 a month Grocery Allowance? And if you need it, don’t those who are genuinely sick or disabled need it more than you? OK 300 odd £400 may not seem much in the grand scheme of things – but when your leader says “We are all in this together”, then you should be – and if those who NEED it can’t have it, why should you?
- Britain should stop interfering in wars in countries that we really can’t help because of extreme cultural differences – we’ve lost too many soldiers, sailors and airmen fighting wars that never end. – I’m including women in the services as well, because they have lost their lives or been injured as well as the men. The cost, not only in lives, whether lost or damaged, but in monetary terms is part of the reason we can’t afford to properly treat those who need it.
- That all disabled service personnel should automatically be treated with dignity and that includes the necessary funds to assist those injured in mind and body. It is not fair that many have to fight for what any other employee with union back up can claim so easily.
- All disabled/sick are not treated as scroungers, but are treated with sympathy and due respect
- Charity/Aid payments should be examined before being handed out to all countries, many use it for personal gain and very little of it goes to the people it is meant to help. Give aid by all means, but through the charitable agencies on the ground – that way it is being spent on truly necessary things and not enriching nuclear power or corrupt officials. We would probably find that most donations would be reduced, because all of the money was used and not 50% being lost on the way.
- Everyone to stop putting this country down, it is still a great country, and if we all pulled together we could be even greater.
