BRITAIN AND THE AXE WEDNESDAY: WHY SO SUPRISED? ROWLING TOLD YOU SO!

Why everybody appears to be reacting to the virtually unprecedented cuts in Britain, hurting the poorest the most, hurting art and crime prevention in such a surprised manner is beyond me. I mean, seriously, it is beyond me.

After all, noted writer J.K. Rowling had told you so in her column back in April of this year, and this was a woman who knew the hell what she was talking about. But did you listen? No. You voted for the Oxbridge trust fund kids.

You didn't listen to the woman who did exactly what you all claimed everybody poor should be doing. She worked herself out of the hole. She was on welfare. She worked her ass off. She needed the state's help to do so. She never became pretentious. She never joined the Oxbridge Clubs. She did what everybody should be quite capable of doing.

She remembered.

She remembered what it was like to be on the other side. What it felt like to be called names. How hurtful it was. And now that she is wealthy, she is giving back some of her money to worthy causes.

And she warned you.

All of you.

But did you listen?

No. Of course you didn't.
