Much-needed funds are going overseas
I WOULD like to express the disgust that I felt over two items that have appeared in the press and on the TV news programmes in the last few days.
Firstly for the treatment that patients received from staff at the Stafford hospital, left for days without food or water, having to drink filthy water from flower vases, not even given the basic care that all patients are entitled to.
One would not expect to find such neglect in many third world countries. We pay out millions, if not billions of our tax payers money to aid foreign countries, and I believe fifty three million pounds every day to the EU's black hole – what appears to be run like a secret society, not allowing their records to be audited for years, so we are told, that is if any records are kept.
Whilst at home in our country our own citizens are at times treated worse than animals, whilst those in charge turn a blind eye.

Not so long ago a woman who put a cat into a trash bin was front page news for days, so why is it the most vulnerable people in our society are allowed to suffer mistreatment in the very places they should be getting the best care available?
They are ending their lives in such terrible and squalid conditions. With such a lack of human kindness being shown to them. Is it not time that our citizens and country came first? Think of what the millions of pounds given to other countries could do for our own NHS, perhaps we could have a decent Police force and an Army worthy of the name, more schools, less homeless people on our streets, the list is almost endless, and what happens to the fifty three million pounds paid each day to the EU? What a waste.
A letter on January 30 by a Mr Daniel Blood was spot on, and I agree fully with what he said. Life seems to be very cheap in our country these days. I feel that the whole Judiciary system needs to be overhauled from top to bottom, and those not fit to be in the positions that they hold should be purged.
It seems to me that life now is not given the respect and the value that it was once given by those who administer so called justice these days in our country, and I find many sentences now being handed down do not appear to fit the seriousness of the crime. I feel that it must appear to many as it does to me, to be a joke and the joke is on the ordinary men and women of our country, who deserve a great deal better from those who are in privileged positions within the judiciary and from our government.
Is it not the cuts in funding to the NHS by our three wise men, Cameron, Osborne and Clegg that caused the management of many hospitals to put profit before the care of patients?
