David Cameron wants to know how happy people feel, he says, “There is more to life than money”, when did he ever experience sustained hardship?

Dear All

The Tories are interested in making people happy.

Tory PM David Cameron says:

“There is more to life than money”.

So speaks a multi millionaire who has had every advantage in life.

If there is more to life than money, would he swop with me and my personal circumstances?

Cameron is to order civil servants to gauge people’s happiness, well let’s hope they don’t knock on my door.

Life is all about choices and the choice I am facing at present is the same as a lot of people.

Heat or eat.

The universal conundrum of the poor!

Ground is being laid by the Tory/Lib Dem Coalition of using a happiness index to influence Government policy.

The measure would be used to test the effect of Conservative-Liberal Democrat policies, I wonder if the happiness gauge could be used to predict riots?

Or is the happiness gauge a tool for electioneering?

Is Cameron worried that he and his chums aren’t doing enough populist policies.

Almost 30 MPs have signed a Commons motion tabled by East Dunbartonshire LibDem MP Jo Swinson, calling for a new happiness gauge.

Jo Swinson is best remembered for claiming make up on expenses.

She has described the Government’s plans yesterday as “positive and forward-looking”.

What a crawler.

You can gauge her happiness with this unscientific test:

Salary: £64,766 plus expenses.

Speaking personally, I would be bloody happy with that, what about you?

I would like to see the results of the ‘happiness’ test on people doing forced menial labour under Tory/Lib Dem plans.

And then see Jo Swinson give a presentation to these people about ‘quality of life’.

This has echoes of Tony Blair telling the poor to accept less when he was holidaying on a billionaires’ yacht.

Look at the picture I have selected and ask yourself, do you think this person is happy in the UK?

And she has forced labour to look forward to.

Yours sincerely
