American should sort out their own country, before interfering in ours
The United States have also reportedly commented on our politics yet again, saying they're not happy with how little the UK is spending on its military forces - or something like that.
Whenever the US starts interfering in our business I tend to groan and ignore the news - hoping they'll bugger-off and leave us to run things how we choose.
Wishful thinking eh?!

Anyway, it's Monday, the start of a new week, and already British politics is frustrating me...........
Foreign Aid, Defence Budget, blah, blah blah...........
I think our government should concern themselves with far more serious and important matters, like that fact that UK citizens are being forced to use food banks and community shops to feed themselves and their families.
It's hard to believe that the UK is one of the wealthiest countries in the World, and that it is the year 2015, when so many people are struggling just to survive.
The government should most definitely not be giving our money away in Foreign Aid, and nor should it be worrying about the defence budget.
If people continue to die from lack of enough food, and other issues associated with poverty, the UK won't need any military protection at all - because they'll be no one left alive to protect.
Yes! People are dying of starvation, in the UK, in 2015! Hard to believe, but sadly it's true.
There are at least 60 suicides currently being investigated where the cause is reported to have been money worries, or more accurately no money.
At least 60 British citizens were so desperate about their living conditions that they killed themselves.
If I hadn't read the news report myself I probably wouldn't have believed it.
How can a country as financially wealthy as Britain have so many people living in poverty?
Or should I say dying in poverty?
Doodle of David Cameron
It's when I read these type of news reports that I wonder how our politicians can sleep at night.
But then I realise they probably sleep very well indeed, because the truth is they just don't care.
They don't care that people are starving, homeless, and in need of help.
Want proof? Look no further than the benefits sanctions that they are so keen on.
Just last week I read several articles about people who claim benefits having their benefits sanctions, which is less direct way of saying stopped because they were considered unworthy for various illogical reasons.
One lady couldn't sign-on at the benefit office because she was in hospital. Her benefit money was sanctioned and she fell behind with her rent, and ended up being evicted, so now she's homeless.
Another lady was struggling to feed her children, she had 6 children if I remember correctly, two of them were disabled, which meant the mother was their full-time carer, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Her benefits were suddenly sanctioned because she was unavailable for work, and she too is now facing eviction, with 6 children.

I don't suppose David Cameron and his cronies are even aware of the existence of people like the ones I've mentioned.
They have absolutely no idea what's going on in Britain. They are so distanced from everyday life.
They live such over-protected lives themselves that it's almost as though they are a completely different species from the average man on the street.
That's why, every now and then, you'll get a politician taking part in a TV programme, usually on Channel 4, where they 'prove they're just like us' and they'll 'live on £50 a week' or move into a council tower block for a week etc.
But that's the point, they are such complete muppets, thinking that 'living' in a council flat for 7 days on a budget of fifty quid enables them in any way to comprehend what life is really like for people for who that life is a harsh reality.
Seven days after filming commenced and they're back home living in luxury.
In seven days it's highly unlikely that seriously soul-destroying depression will have gripped them, or that the ill effects of a basic diet will have harmed their health in any noticeable way...........
And that's not to mention the safety aspect, and the stress. Obviously being ever-so-important politicians means that during filming they are always perfectly safe, and not likely to be mugged or stabbed by a smack-head in the lift of the tower block.
I could go on, but I've already wandered off topic from Liam Fox, defence budget, and David Cameron, and I've more or less run out of steam now...........
So, to recap, the government should not be giving our money in foreign 'aid' or upping defence expenditure - not while we have British people suffering.
Ah, just one more thing before I finish -
I literally just read that a third of the Ebola aid money given to Sierra Leone is unaccounted for.
What a shock!
Proof that giving 'aid' to other countries is not what's best for Britain, or anyone else either.

When will Britain grow a pair and stop chucking good money after bad?
When will the British government put the people who pay their wages first?
Enough is enough!
Do you get riled-up over British politics?
If so, you're more than welcome to let it all out in the comments.
