Selective austerity? £12.82 an hour nurses too expensive. £500,000 cruise missiles – not.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s ConDemNation today!)

In the lead up to military intervention in Syria, where are all the government’s austerity hawks? You know – the ones who’ve been endlessly telling us for the past three years how the country can’t afford health services, fire services or school playing fields?

If there’s going to be austerity, it can’t be selective. Either we can’t afford things – or we can.

So why in three years has the NHS lost 5,000 nurses – who cost around £12.82 an hour – but we seem to be able to afford cruise missiles which cost around half a million for a single use?
