Who's seen I, Danial Blake
« on: October 24, 2016, 10:44:38 AM »
No Spoilers!


I saw this on Saturday night.  It was generally a good movie, even if a little depressing. 

One thing that pissed me off was they made a big deal out of the fact that it was an American company that had been contracted to do the assessments.  Of course, the faceless, heartless lead beuracrat was the only person in the movie with a huge American accent.  I've got news for you British People, the Americans are not responsible for the way your government treats benefit claimants.  You can blame Tony Blair and the Tories , but it's your own decision.

On Sunday I raided my kitchen cupboards and took a huge haul of stuff to the food bank donation point.

Really, I was looking for homeless people to give a hug to but they all ran away.
