Who Does David Cameron Work For?
Speaking during a visit to the Ford motor plant in Dagenham, East London, Cameron said: “What we need in Britain is a renegotiation of our relationship with the EU and then a referendum where the British people decide do we stay in this reformed organisation or do we leave it.
“That’s what I will pursue, that’s what I will deliver, and at the heart of that renegotiation we need to address people’s concerns about immigration. I’m very clear about who the boss is, about who I answer to and it’s the British people. They want this issue fixed, they are not being unreasonable about it, and I will fix it.”
Prime Minister- Which of these is your Boss?
The British people as the Boss? The great ideal that the people are the masters of their own fate and the Prime Minister and the government are the loyal servants, however, is this actually true and who is he eluding to as his ‘Boss’?
Public Sector workers?– Maybe Cameron was talking about public sector workers in Britain being his Boss?
Since the Government came to power in 2010, a total of 631,000 public sector jobs have been axed. The civil servants’ Public and Commercial Services Union found that nine out of 10 members who lost their jobs last year were from the lowest paid grades.
Official figures show that 13,030 (86%) of the 15,140 civil service jobs cut between March 2012 and March 2013 were from administrative grades. Since 2010, more than 78,600 civil service jobs have been cut, including 48,200 admin workers.
The Government’s own forecast predicts a further 400,000 job losses before the 2015 General Election which means by then one in six public sector jobs will have been axed.
Another constant kick in the teeth since 2010 is the imposed two-year public sector pay freeze, followed by a 1% pay cap.
As a result, civil servants working at executive officer grade have had a pay increase of only 2.05% since March 2010. At the same time, civil servants have had to increase their pension contributions. The combined effect has hit take-home pay hard for many civil servants. The union estimates that on average civil servants have seen their pay fall by £2,300 over the past four years, although a reduction in lower-paid jobs mean the total average has gone up.
The union also says female civil servants are being paid on average 10% less than their male counterparts. After strikes earlier this year, the Government has even started to draft put legislation to ban strikes!
Shades of Berlin come to mind….never mind a loving tale of the ruler and the ruled.
People on welfare benefits?– Maybe it’s the vulnerable and the ones that have barriers to employment that are Mr Cameron’s Bosses?
In his conference speech the Chancellor of the Exchequer told delegates in Birmingham- “This country must pay its debts, drive down its deficit, pull down its taxes, and pull up its young people,”
He announced that he would cut welfare spending by £3 billion annually if his party won the next general election, due next May. He would do so by freezing most working-age benefits for two years, a move that will affect 10million Britons. He also committed to lowering the cap on household benefits from £26,000 to £23,000 and limiting the time for which 18- to 21-year-olds could claim unemployment benefit.
The chancellor’s move, which will cut £3bn a year from the welfare budget, is designed to cement the Conservatives’ reputation as the party willing to take tough long-term economic decisions, even at the cost of hitting more than 5 million families characterised as working poor.
The freeze will hit the poorest third in society the hardest and cause working families with children lose as much as £490 a year in child benefit and tax credits. The average loss will be £300 a year per household but it will vary greatly.
People on welfare benefits being the bosses for the Prime Minister is just as ridiculous as saying the sheep is the master over the wolf.
Teachers? Maybe it’s the ones that teach the next generations in this society who Cameron is eluding to as his Boss?
A new YouGov poll for the National Union of Teachers (based on a representative sample of 826 teachers) showed that just 12% would vote Conservative in a general election.
Some other damning findings from the survey include:
79% of teachers feel that the Government’s impact on the education system over the last three-and-a-half-years has been negative.
82% of teachers and 87% of school leaders do not believe the Coalition Government’s academies and free schools programme is taking education in the right direction.
Morale in the teaching profession continues to fall and three quarters (74%) of teachers say their morale has declined since the last General Election.
63% of teachers say that more than a fifth of their workload does not directly benefit children’s learning.
70% of head teachers do not feel trusted by the Government to get on with the job.
Not much of endorsement, especially when teachers are more and more tired of their profession everyday due to Government polices.
Bankers? A study by the Bureau for Investigative Journalism has found that the City accounted for £11.4m of Tory funding – 50.79% of its total haul – in 2010, a general election year. This compared with £2.7m, or 25% of its funding, in 2005, when Cameron became party leader.
The research also shows that nearly 60 donors gave more than £50,000 to the Tories last year, entitling each of them to a face-to-face meeting with leading members of the party up to and including Cameron.
David “Spotty” Rowland gave more than £4m. Stanley Fink, a hedge fund manager who was appointed the Tory treasurer last year in succession to Spencer, gave £1.9m while George Magan gave £485,000. Magan was also given a peerage.
Earlier last year, the Tories cut the top rate of income tax – giving 13,000 millionaires an average tax cut of £100,000. Bonuses soared by 82% in April as bankers deferred their payments to take advantage of the tax cut. Also George Osborne launched a legal challenge to defend bankers’ bonuses from an EU cap, which would limit the size of their bonus to one year’s salary – or two years’ with shareholder approval.
In actuality it is those that have wealth, influence and far monetary reach which are the true bosses of David Cameron and in fact the entire political machinery in Britain today. Cash for questions, expenses and other scandals have proved this time and time again in British politics
The British people are not the Bosses for Cameron and his Government. Not content on fooling the people of the world with his promises of hope and success, he goes further and fools his own people.
Islam is consistent- authority and rule belong to none Allah
In Islam political legislation and frameworks are established with a clear and undisputed understanding that:
إِنِ الْحُكْمُ إِلَّا لِلَّه
“The rule is for none but Allah”
Even though Islam is definitive that humans have no remit to rule by other than what Allah has revealed, Islam has built in and established rigorous measures of accountability.
Mahkamat ul mudhalim (Court of Unjust Acts) – This is an independent high court presided over by the most eminent and qualified judges (qudaa’ al muzalim). It has the power to remove any official of state regardless of their role or rank, including, most importantly, the Khaleefah if he persists in pursuing a path that lies outside of the terms of his Bay’ah. Ordinary citizens who have a complaint against the state can register it with the Court. Regardless if they are bankers that can provide funds for the next political campaign.
Political Parties – In addition to mechanisms of accountability, Islam also ordered the establishment of political parties. Political parties in the Khilafah are established primarily to account the Khaleefah and his government. Their task as well as other is to ensure the government does not deviate from the implementation of Islam, not from what the powerful and wealthy want.
Majlis ul Ummah – a council is regularly elected directly by the people and part of their duties as a council is to hold the Khaleefah to account. They also provide advise, scrutinise policies and ensure the state doesn’t deviate from the application of Islam.
The western world is awash with false propaganda about the Islamic way of life. It mocks its systems as being from the ancient, unworkable, impractical and inhumane. Frankly lies. However these lies have transcended not just upon the Muslims or other communities in the world, but also on the ‘indiginous’ peoples in the western world.
وَنَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ تِبْيَانًا لِّكُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً وَبُشْرَى لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ
“And We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur’an) as an exposition of everything, a guidance, a mercy, and glad tidings for those who have submitted themselves (to Allah as Muslims).” [An-Nahl 16:89]
