Soapbox 499 – for the 99%


The ‘captive state’ – a Britain organised under successive governments to suit the corporate few – grossly mistreats people like the late Stephanie Bottrill. A Cambridge reader writes:

This suicide should shock and shame the government.

Politicians on £64,000 per year have no idea how low-income people in this country
have to live.

How would they respond if they were suddenly required by law to move far away into a smaller house, away from friends and relations?

And yes, all sectors of our state are captive to the corporations, who are the real rulers of this country.
