“If you have no extra money, to begin with, no amount of financial advice is going to get you out of the debt the governments and big corporations have landed you in”.
The UK Is On ‘The Brink Of Starvation’ 2022.
It was predicted during lockdown 3 million people were on the verge of starvation according to ‘The Financial Times‘ but now we are on a whole new level of people starving due to the price hikes of the cost of living.
My question is: “if you do not have money, to begin with, how are you supposed to pay for the cost of living price rises”?
Vulnerable People Are On The Brink Of Starvation.
If you have no assets to sell how are you supposed to pay off your debts?
This article should be shared everywhere so that the powers that be, realize that people like the elderly, the disabled, and people on low incomes simply cannot manage to survive.
If people who do not have savings and live pay cheque to pay cheque how can the government and the large corporations expect people to pay more than is physically possible when they increase prices? The Bank of England has just announced today they are increasing interest rates to help with inflation. How is increasing further hikes going to help people living on the breadline or below?
The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.
It is all very well to say the government is investing £15 Billion into helping with the cost of living, but it is all smoke and mirrors because that does not stop the creditors and utility companies chasing the vulnerable and does give an IMMEDIATE effect on the people that need the help the most.
Something needs to be put in place immediately, not next month or the month after, but it needs to be put in place now!
“People Need Help Today Not Tomorrow”!
A U-turn by the government will see oil and gas firms help pay an additional 25 percent windfall tax on profits to help pay for fresh measures to support households with soaring energy bills. Yet the energy companies such as ‘British Gas’ for example are still charging extortionate prices.
I am not saying this is impacting UK alone this is a global crisis but I have to speak for the people in the UK as this is where I reside.
Six months ago, UN World Food Program President David Beasley issued a “one time appeal to billionaires to help fight famine,” which explained that if the world’s richest people donated a mere $6.6 billion of their collective $13.1 trillion in wealth (or 0.04 percent of the total), world hunger could be eliminated in 2022 and millions of lives could be saved.
So shame on all the rich that do not do enough and I am sure God or Allah or if you believe in any higher power, your fate will be decided for you in your next life and you will reap what you sow!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT!
To all the Politicians, Millionaires, Billionaires & Royalty of this world, why hoard your money when you could be helping society? Afterall we came into this world with nothing and we will leave with nothing. You cannot take your wealth with you. You do not know what happens when you die. You may be reborn and have to live a life in poverty – Karma!
“What person has the right to make another person unhappy? We are all supposed to live in harmony with one another and love thy neighbor but we have made this world a very evil place, and people should not have their mental well-being affected or lose lives through war and famine because of greed”. How can the people responsible for this, be able to sleep soundly at night?
MENTAL HEALTH & RISK OF SUICIDE.
‘It screws with an already vulnerable mind’: How the cost of living crisis is affecting the nation’s mental health. Soaring bills and a lack of support from the government are causing ‘huge pressure’ for people with mental health problems. Socioeconomic disadvantage or living in an area of socioeconomic deprivation increases the risk of suicidal behaviour. https://www.samaritans.org/wales/about-samaritans/research-policy/inequality-suicide/Samaritans_Dying_from_inequality_report_-_summary
