If at first you do not succeed…keep trying to bury them

George Osborne, Great Britain’s (still united since late September 2014) most popular monster, is determined to drive the poor into a fine powder.

George Osborne took a calculated political gamble on Monday when he spurned the chance to ease austerity and instead announced that a re-elected Tory government would hit 10m households with a two-year freeze on benefits and tax credits.

The chancellor’s move, which will cut £3bn a year from the welfare budget, is designed to cement the Conservatives’ reputation as the party willing to take tough long-term economic decisions, even at the cost of hitting more than 5m families characterised as working poor.

Nothing in the UK, or America for that matter, is more popular than kicking people who will not vote, or who will not be allowed to vote.?

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
