So Mick Philpott is found guilty of the manslaughter of six of his children and it was all to do with the benefits he was receiving, nothing else, nada, zip, none.
The filth being
peddled by some on social media, in politics, on radio and television and in
print on blogs such as these shows how vile, abhorrent and hideous some of us
have become in ‘Austerity Britain’.
This is not an
attack on politicians like Osborne, the only comment I would make to them is in
situations like this silence is golden.
But make no bones
about it, Mick Philpott didn’t commit manslaughter because of the welfare
system in the UK.
that as a final act of pure evil after a string of hideous crimes, some of
which have been glossed over in the bid to continue to dismantle our welfare
blog made the case for the welfare state to be mended to weed out the abusers
like Philpott and not dismantled to penalise those in genuine need.
The truth is we
as a society should be horrified at what happened in Victory Road, Derby – not for
the welfare claims, but that a vile ogre got away with so much for so long.
Let’s look at
the FACTS – this man was married to a woman, who bore his children but Mick had
a mistress in the same house who did the same.
Not only that
but Philpott boasted about the fact on numerous occasions – where is the
condemnation for his treatment of women as let’s face it – meat.
While we are on
that subject, Philpott once stabbed an ex 13 times because she left him, why
aren’t people in power and influence speaking about this?
sickening, disgraceful and just awful fact – Philpott even wrote a letter
saying he and his wife would go to their children’s graves and ‘rape’ each
Why oh why won’t
we stand up and realise this trial was of a sick, sex-crazed, woman-hating,
vile scumbag who stopped at nothing to get what he wanted.
Not even the
innocence of six young children, already unfortunate to have been born to such
a vulgar man, was enough to stop Philpott.
if you think about applauding Osborne’s comments, if you buy the Daily Mail, if
you read Conservative supporting blogs.
This is not
about the welfare state, it’s about a man who used and abused women and stole
the lives of children he helped create.
I hope in time
our society will realise Philpott should not be held up as the ‘anti-welfare
He needs to be
condemned like Huntley, like Shipman and like Hindley and Brady as what he is
and they were – cold-blooded killers.
