Well this all seems perfectly reasonable

I got a letter today, telling me my PIP (disability benefit) is going up by £1.23 a month and it got me thinking, which lets face it, is never a good thing.

Here are just a few things I have recently discovered are going up

Council tax: £40 a month

Gas: £10 a month

Electric: £10 a month

Water £9 a month

TV Licence £1.50 a month

National minimum wage for over 25 working 40 hours a week £60.80 a month

MP Pay rises £174 a month

And this doesn’t cover the cost of food going up, petrol, childcare all of those are set to go up.

I see so many people now struggling to survive let alone live, its not becoming possible anymore.

We are going to see more and more people drop below the breadline and I sit and watch the house of commons arguing over Brexit, which is probably never going to happen, but has wasted £40bn. That amount of money is stupid, imagine what we as a country could do with that amount of money, rather than watch a bunch of overgrown children jeer and yell at each other every evening. They even have to have a nanny to yell order at them every 2 minutes.

Yes, I’m using the Gutenberg editor, Donna. I’ve written this post using it.

I’ve read more blog posts complaining about the new Gutenberg Editor than those that give it any praise or credit. I found that to be of great shame, given some of the circumstances surrounding the reviews it’s been getting.

Many of those who complained about Gutenberg hadn’t even attempted using it. They’d ended up getting to it by mistake; many panicking as soon as they saw what was in front of them on the screen.

Others had tried using it but had not given it the time it deserves. Just like learning to ride a bike, or ice-skating for…
