I am one of those people that everyone loves to hate. A middle class pinko, a champagne socialist, a supporter of basic income. Yet I also believe in rewarding the talented, the hard workers, the entrepreneurs who take the risks, but without dismantling the safety net that should give everyone the chance to live a worthwhile life, no matter what happens to them and their loved ones.
I’m also a carer, but I don’t fit the public’s image of what a carer should be like, so there’s no group or party that represents me, or seems to care about the interests of my children. All we want now is a bit of support and the chance to live our lives quietly and free of fear. Fear of the future and what the Government will do next.
