In response to Abandoned: Those people up at Stormont pay more for a suit than OAPs and young families have to spend on heat and power for an entire year. They get their food subsidised, they have free offices, free electricity, free heat. As long as they’re okay they don’t give a fig about what the ordinary people are suffering. That electricity and gas price hike was what my son would call an ‘epic fail’ on the part of the politicians, and yet not a thing will be done about it and we will continue to elect people not through passion or ability or effectiveness, but because of the colour of the flag they wave at election time.
