Sharks Scenting Blood.

The Tories are planning to make a further £12bn cut to the welfare budget on Wednesday. (Oh, and they just confirmed that rich people will henceforth be able to inherit up to £1m worth of property without paying tax on it. Just so you know.)

I think this is something of a sharks’ feeding frenzy taking hold.

Yes, yes, I know that the scent of blood sends predators wild with desire for more. And I know that the law of the jungle dictates that the predator attacks the weakest in the herd.

But we don’t live in the jungle. We’re not animals. We’re human beings and we’re supposed to be possessed of higher consciousness. Aren’t we?
