    it sounds a terrible experience mike of this family with his mind in pieces’ reminds me of Mohamed Bouazizi who was a Tunisian street vendor who set himself on fire on 17 December 2010, in protest of the confiscation of his wares and the harassment and humiliation that he reported was inflicted on him by a municipal official and her aides. His act became a catalyst for the Tunisian Revolution

    Mohamed Bouazizi had endured years of persecution but his act became a catalyst for the Tunisian Revolution and the wider Arab Spring, inciting demonstrations and riots throughout Tunisia in protest of social and political issues in the country. The publics anger and violence intensified following Bouazizi’s death, leading then-President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali to step down on 14 January 2011, after 23 years in power.

    the reason why Mohamed Bouazizi became a hero was that in 2011, Bouazizi was posthumously awarded the Sakharov Prize jointly along with four others for his and their contributions to “historic changes in the Arab world

    change can only come about if the people so desire it wherever you are in the world but it takes many years of persecution of its people for a country to feel enraged

    the conservatives have only been in power 4 years and it won’t be until they have been in power 14 years for society as a whole to take note and to think hard do we wish to live in a dictatorial one view state whose only interest is in the power and money of the few

        it’s unlikely for the UK to follow Tunisia as we have a so called democracy’ of course the thinking is that just because you have a vote your a democratic society but you can still be persecuted and the problem for those that are is that they have no voice at all and their needs are dismissed at source just like you would have in a non-democratic country

        with the uk mainly operating on a right wing and extreme agenda regardless of who is in power is very repressive and that means that the country no longer has a democracy and that is a very dark place to be even if your fit let alone sick or disabled

        a democratic country is about a choice of views that take into account a cross section of society that include the rich and the poor through balanced left and right wing views that are in keeping with creating a harmonious society for the benefit of everyone

        the uk is not democratic as it only serves a small section of society mainly business and those who live a comfortable life and even after you vote after 5 years the medicine is still the same be it blue or red so in reality you live a life like a Tunisian in a dictatorship which often means low pay and hard work for those that can and to remain housebound for those that cant through illness or disability

        the political parties need to state their colours clearly red blue and yellow and stick to their original founding so that the country can truly though the ballot box vote and decide on how they wish to lead their lives and under what command and not as now where all political parties think the same

        albeit there may be minor variation when they speak in public but you can be sure there thought process are very identical which have led to a void so that ukip can enter politics for the worse

    This is a very sad story, and an increasingly common one. We are set to see unprecedented numbers evicted in the next 12 months purely because they have been forced into debt deliberately by the government as an act of ideology against the working class.

    Even sadder is the fact that because he didn’t actually succeed in his act of immolation it remained off the news. I really hope that the act of the Tunisian Bouazazi is not repeated here, as it is a most dreadful death, but that’s what totally distraught, desperate people do, without hope. The people are crying out for that hope to come – Labour have this power to give. They could also, unfortunately, choose to withhold hope, and any consequences would be a stain on them/us.

    I sense the national mood is turning now, with a number of small but significant changes. Who would have thought Robert Peston would be the one to state the bl***ing obvious about the Daily Mail and the BBC editorial policies? That Stephen Fry would call the government “squalid and rancid” – and get reported? And the usual D-Day establishment rhetoric would be shouted down by 90 years olds, telling it like it is about the Welfare State?

Theirs nothing for the poor of our country shame on the Governments that’s all I can say.

      I am the truth and beauty, peace and humanity, development and progress. However, the truth is necessary confidentiality. Today the whole world is caught in a dishonest and corrupt politics is swallowed. Here humanity, peace and to establish the truth of a flag of course everyone must stand down, then something else. Be involved in the avoidance of falsehood and truth, will come to fruition.
