Just thought I'd get the barrel rolling with some old blogs.
What has made me hesitate to post blogs is the fact that the majority
of them would be futile, and of no point. Why waste my time.
alas, i have decided finally the time has come for me to actually put
out a blog, and like the majority i have a lot to complain about.
my first blog/ rant is in relation with my financial situation and the
matter of my current housing specifically outlining swansea council
Swansea council housing being the over-payed,
under-stimulated, under-educated, drueling fuck-ups they are, have left
me nothing but the bitter taste of dissapointment in my mouth since the
day i began hunting for a 2 bedroom house.
It seems these days,†It
would be†impossible†give a house to 2 students, with a baby on the way,
with no job experience, and a number of reasons rendering one if not
both unable to find full-time employment.
Instead of giving a house
to them (them being me and my girlfriend) who are, infact fittingly
able to honestly tick off every circumstance that permits us for
council housing bar one.
That one being the reason we, are livig on
crack alley, in a one bedroom apartment that smells like shite. living
off my girlfriends £45 a week and whatever money my in-debt mother can
scrape together for me at the end of the week whilst i drop out of
college and try desperately to find a job that will pay enough to
financially support a family of three at 17 years old.
have the nerve to give these houses to foreigners, many of which are
perfectly, financially capable enough to private rent or even take out
a mortgage, but ofcourse choose fairly to cut prices by taking the
houses up from under the noses of the people who were born here.
by now i'd be thinking i am to be put on a waiting list under 4999
middle class, employed arabs, but no. Aparently it's not only ok to out
a 16 year old, manic depressed girl to live on her own in such a
disgusing street but i should have to move in and claim jsa and raise
the the child in that god forsaken place until the age of 5, did anyone
else sleep with their parents 'till the age of 5 here?
girlfriend, who IS the most wonderfull woman in the world,
unfortunately isn't as able to wake up in the morning and force herself
to be as optimistic as i have to make myself every day for risk of
hanging myself from the kitchen lightbulb, which is perfectly
reasonable. She's depressed, it's medical, and it's quite common in our
modern society of fast food, vast over-pricing, rising property values,
model magazines, and on the go, business lifestyles.
What can be
done about it, well firstly they choose to take away her councilor and
then decide it's safe to put someone who is pregnant and at the same
time that unstable, in the situation shes in onto a 4 month waiting
list to sit in a room with a councillor and a social worker for 5
minutes so they can strongly and sternly reccomend, off the record
ofcourse, that she go out and get an abortion whilst she still can.
the fuck was i thinking? to believe that the tax payers money was meant
to benefit the people in the worst situations who actually try to get
out of these situations, the government have made it so anyone in a
financial situation in which they claim benefits off the government,
would be more well off staying in the situation that they're in than
going out and working, we live in a lazy generation, partly due to
british wealth, partly due to over-eating, partly due to unhealthy
diets and very much so recently i've discovered that for the majority
of the working class their more likely to gain a reasonable income for
sitting on their arse than for actually working.
The people who pass
these legislations, and make these rules, as far as i'm concerned can
drown themselves in a bucket of pig shit as far as i'm concerned, i was
never†a racist, but when i find out that unfortunately the private rent
two bedroom house next to my grandmothers and aunties that was up for
rent has been given to yet another polish family, stealing work from my
step-father and every other honest skimmer in swansea at cheaper prices
so they can send the money home to their country to relatives who can
live rich on the exchange whilst british citizens live unemployed and
unable to get anywhere onto the property ladder or with the council it
tends to make me want to lay a brick onto their graves when they die by
Anyway, this is my first of many generic rants about
how the life and system fucks meand the majorityof the working class
these days†over and over in the arse like a wash cycle.
Hope you enjoyed reading.
