NOW the cuts are biting
And, here's an idea.... why not try reading intelligent comment instead of ideologically driven crap?
I would if someone intelligent posted in this thread.
Honey, I meant from some media like the BBC, Telegraph (right wing), Guardian (left wing), Sky News.... instead of quoting 'false-economy' blogs.
All that is happening in England, along with most of Europe, is that they are trying to recover from a decade of left wing dishonest handling of their economies. They hid unemployment by 'creating' jobs.... unfortunately, they kind of forgot about the economic impact of 'creating' government jobs.... Government jobs drain the public finances.... they do not add money into the economy.
It may be a blog, but the figures are not made up.
Austerity in these times will only make things worse. England is well on the way to more bread riots and I am loathe to see the same thing happen here.
Yeah..I guess England's problems didn't have anything to do with "bailouts".

Yeah..fake jobs alright. Bankers.
More bread riots? They had bread riots? When? WWII?
Austerity is the only way out of this. Sure, it makes things worse... but, since Britain kept its AAA rating, I guess the international economists think it's a good way forward.
Naturally, the government workers will strike... which will be funny, because the private sector workers will feel very little sympathy for them. Government workers have had it their own way for far too long. Their pensions, their perks, are crippling their country. Just like ours!
Just swap right for left and you have America as well.
Well mostly right for the last decade or so.
Yea, ok. Whatever you say.
We could try an honest and reasonable debate about the global economy and it's impact on each country.
How did you arrive at that conclusion?
