This is very disturbing, although it does not surprise me, given my experience with the heavy hand of the government. The prevailing attitude of the authorities seems to be ‘do everything possible to make a situation worse’ rather than do even the least bit imaginable to assist those already suffering. This attitude comes, of course, from those who have the money to purchase the will of the government; we have a government of the people, by the people who can buy the government.
