Not titled ‘1671’


I earned, after tax £324 this week. A goodly sum, you might think; especially those reliant on £71 a week to survive. And yet, this Saturday night, I am, after, I admit a few small luxuries stony broke.

Oh yes, the bills, at least for this month are paid. There’s food in the freezer and I have a drink to enjoy at home.

If this is the limit (and it is!) of my pleasures, my reward for a 48 hour hard working week, how much harder is it for the unfortunate folk who rely on benefits, how much harder now when they are told they must do more, or lose their entitlement because ‘the country cannot afford it’?

About thepositivevoice

We originally set out to advocate and campaign for and on behalf of people living with HIV in Greater Manchester. But we chose to slightly change our name by adding beyond. Therefore our name is Greater Manchester & Beyond of People Living With HIV & AIDS. Cause there are many issues that affects people living with HIV we now look ate other health and social care issues that will affect people living with HIV in their everyday lives. For the purpose of this site we have chosen a strap-line name hence our user name here - this is of course "thepositivevoice". The reason for this is often the issues that affect us can be quite daunting and discriminatory to our very existence. So whatever negative we hear and see - we endeavour to turn that into a positive. There are many examples where a negative has turned into a positive and one of those example is the term "Queer" - well that is also quite interesting as some people in the lesbian and gay community don't like that very word - some have decided to own it. Therefore any person that calls another person (the example here) queer - some gay people will reply yes we are. As time moves on and I as the author of this blog - information will be never-ending. So watch this space.
