"The Olympic Games made our country proud. I believe these Paralympic Games will make our country prouder still. Already this is shaping up to be the best, the biggest, the most incredible Paralympic Games ever.
"Over these next two weeks, we're going to have more of those moments that will bring us together and make us proud. We are going to show the whole world that when it comes to putting on a show, there is no country like Britain and no city like London."
David Cameron: Dipstick in Chief
"...when it comes to putting on a show, there is no country like Britain..."
How appropriate. Because that is what it all is. All show. Just around the corner there's the real Britain; the Britain where kids go to school hungry and pensioners freeze to death, nothing works and everyone except the super rich is miserable. But, on with the show, while we pull another rabbit out of the hat...roll up, roll up....
What a complete and utter bag of scum Cameron is.
He brags about the Paralympics while his stinking government is taking money away from sick and disabled people on a weekly basis. Not only that but it is paying a private company to do the dirty work for it, and make a profit from it.
More than 40% of the decisions that this company makes, and that are appealed, are found by tribunal (court) to be wrong. And when (in what after all is a court of law), the claimant is supported by legal or professional counsel, the success rate goes far nearer to 100%.
No other government in modern times has treated our sick and disabled with such contempt and got away with it. And the reason that Cameron's pathetic government gets away with it, is that it has managed to persuade Brits that people claiming benefits are, in fact, a set of lazy scroungers that have been bleeding the country dry for decades.
And yet in the UK on average over 30 of these so called "scroungers" die every week, not long after they are told by this scheme they are fit for work. This lying sack of shit of a government, along with their equally despicable partners in crime, ATOS, won't even tell us the truth about the targets that have been set for reducing the cost to the taxpayer and to which the staff are held.
It's beneath contempt as it is, but then to try to take political advantage from running the Paralympic Games in his precious London, is vomit inducing. At a time when it suits his selfish political ends to shove the union flag down everybody's throat, he revels in something that from his other actions he clearly demonstrates that he doesn't give a flying fig about.
I wish the athletes from wherever they come in the world, the best luck in that world. Truly, I have respect for anyone who trains hard to become the best at a sport, but there can be no doubt that the challenges that many of these guys have overcome to be the best make them real heroes.
As for one of the sponsors, yes, strangely enough, Atos, the company that has taken £100 million from the government to torture our disabled, I hope they go broke.
And as for the government that would rather take money from the sick than ask their tax fiddling super-rich mates to fiddle just a little less, may they get what they deserve... whatever that may be.
