The Politics of Cruelty

I  currently find it utterly disgusting that the Tories voted against Labour's amendments to stop cuts to police, firefighters, and nurses  and to end the pay cap on hard working  public sector workers.
Labour had proposed an amendment to the Queen's Speech to "end the public sector pay cap and give the emergency and public services a fair pay rise".MPs voted 323-309, a majority of just 14, against. Labour's bid to end the 1% public sector pay cap was the first Commons vote since the general election.
The Tories do this and say there is "no magic money tree", yet the Tories still managed to bung the DUP  over £2 Billion, in a desperate attempt to cling on to power, whilst also managing to give the Queen an 8% pay rise. And repeatedly have taken pay rise after pay rise for themselves, they simply have no shame. I cannot believe their sheer arrogance! Torys actually cheered after blocking Labour's amendment.
Public sector workers have had their pay frozen for two years thanks to Tory austerity. a pay freeze that has seen nurses, firefighters smd other workers subject yo a 14 per cent pay cut over the last seven years. It looks like the it's business as usual as the Tory's inflict their  cruel policies of austerity as they have done previously.Not one Tory had the decency to rebel and  to vote for Labour's amendment - and all 10 DUP MPs voted  with their Tory paymasters against it.
Theresa May is a hypocrite who only  last week  'thanked' the firefighters who worked throughout the night  trying to save people from the Grenfell Tower fire yet yesterday she and her cronies cut firefighters pay,  
Nurses are currently using bloody food banks; to feed their families despite working 12 hour shifts  with such dedication , that we all rely on, and yet they get pay cuts while the Queen sits in her castle and gets an 8% pay rise and the DUP who have done nothing for us get £2 Billion. It's wrong, and many  people are increasingly feeling much justified anger.
It just  proves they don't care about the public or have even learnt from the election let alone listen as Theresa May had promised they now would, and after all their hollow words from them about "our heroic emergency services" and about "learning lessons and having to listen to the public" they jump straight back to being what many of us know they have always been and what they always will be. It shows us the true nature of the Government we have now been left with.  May and the Tories must go.
I will leave you with the words of Nye Bevan to express what I and many millions are currently feeling :-
