Loan sharks thank government for abolishing Local Welfare Assistance

This is an excellent piece of campaigning satire in order to point out how the poor, the vulnerable and the homeless will be exploited by loan sharks. I hope the MPs receiving the letter get the message, though in the case of the government, I doubt it. Their whole policies are directed towards destroying the state sector so that people have to turn to private industry, no matter how expensive, exploitative and inefficient this may be. The only aspect of this that’ll bother them will be that someone has dared to criticised and spoof it.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

All MPs will be receiving this excellent spoof letter next week, highlighting the fact that the main people who are going to benefit from the government’s decision to abolish Local Welfare Assistance, will be loan sharks:

MPs will also be receiving pillow cases with the slogan “How do you sleep at night?

For more about the campaign to raise awareness of the impact of cutting Local Welfare Assistance – which funds essential furniture, electrical goods, food, rent deposits etc for vulnerable households at risk of homelessness or going through a crisis – see here.
