The over 95,000 civil servants strike that closed job center and museums is only the beginning of things to come that will ensure the UK lackluster government is held accountable for the counterproductive way in which they have destroyed the very fabric of the UK economy.

Although the citizens of the United Kingdom did not give the Conservative a mandate, they were still able to hatch a government by joining forces with the Liberal Democrats and in doing so were able to get their grubby hands in the country its infrastructure, its citizen and were able to began their ineffective policies that have seen social deprivation is at its worse in the UK.

According to the Public and Commercial general secretary, of which I believe every word that he said, “civil and public servants are working harder than ever to provide the services we all rely on but, instead of rewarding them, the government is imposing cuts to their pay, raiding their pensions and trying to rip up their basic working conditions,”.

Anyone who has endured the deprivation of UK services, closure of essential services, eradication of the social welfare and benefit systems since this coalition took over the country in May 2010, will be in no doubt that the country is on a slippery slope to chaos.

The vast majority of working individuals will only use strike action as a last resort and when civil servants deemed it necessary to strike, how long before other services follow suit. Those that are fortunate to be in jobs are being pushed to the limit trying to serve the public whilst having to deal with cuts in their resources, lack of staff and a frustrated public that cannot understand what is really happening in a country that should have the relevant resources to cater to every citizen needs.

UK citizens have to watch the vast majority of their lives decimate by this government, they have to watch whilst the elderly, children and the poorest of society suffer that ever before.  But those at the top of the tree with more resources than they need, get an even bigger share of the pie and this is causing such a great divide within the country and if this roller coaster does not stop the civil servant strike is just the tip of the iceberg.

It is unbelievable that by 2015 the poverty rate among low income family will double and child poverty in the UK is set to escalate.  How can this be in a country that have such vast resources.  There is no doubt in my opinion who is to be blamed for the problems that we are experiencing.

To believe that any country has unlimited resources is to be naive, however is the manner in which the resources are used and if the distribution of the limited resources is only spread among those that are already affluent then it stand to reason that the majority must suffer and that is what the citizen of the UK is experiencing.  The affluent are in the minority yet they control 95 percent of the wealth and the majority is left with 5 percent, it does not take Einstein to figure out that this does not equate.

I am hoping that, although the country is suffering badly we will be able to control ourselves and ride the storm out until 2015 when we can finally use the democratic process to be rid of this coalition government and their ineffective outdated policies.
