This Government Cuts

Went on the rally against the cuts in Manchester. Last Saturday morning. It was pissing down with rain. Typical Manchester weather. But, we marched through town anyway, had a good shout, waved a few placards, listened to some very rousing speeches.

Although we don't look very roused...! Maybe that's because it's depressing. Many people in this country seem to think these cuts are inevitable. They don't seem to realise that the government have chosen to make cuts that will hit the poor and vulnerable hardest, and that there were alternative choices they could have made. This is going to be a hard four years for so many people.
