WHAT happened to austerity and we are all in this together?

The Duchess of Cambridge hasn’t heard about this it seems.

She has flown to the Caribbean for a holiday with her parents, staying in a £15,000 a week villa.

Many people in austerity Britain don’t earn that money in a year. What insensitivity when many are struggling to heat their homes and put food on the table.

Last week the press were vilifying Bob Crowe, a trade union leader, for going on a cruise that cost £10,000. Well at least he was spending his own money. Dual standards as usual by the right wing nationals. David Cameron used to go on about broken Britain. After a few years of his policies, it is split asunder. Talk about the haves and have nots.
