The news screen at Manchester Piccadilly Station flashes George Osborne informing the common people that they can expect austerity for years to come, while his mates in the City continue to plunder all and sundry courtesy of quantitative easing, low-interest rates, and the creation of that type of debt based growth that will inevitably lead to the next housing bubble and a financial crisis which will make 2008 appear mild by comparison and which, no doubt, will see the madmen, once again, embarking on their war for resources.
Of course, it would be too much to expect limited, arrogant,heartless, dunderheads such as Osborne to actually understand the lemming nature of their actions, even if the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, does accuse the Chancellor of making an “unrealistic, unfair” assault on the poor.
Once again, all we have is a mainstream politician playing at politics and this becomes all too obvious when the Deputy Prime Minister goes on to say that he might find it difficult to work in another coalition with the Tories, because of their economic policies. it
Indeed, if the Liberal Democrat leader was true to his convictions not only would there be no question of his party entering another coalition government, but he would also feel impelled to bring down his own criminal government immediately by leading his party out of the coalition immediately.
However, that would be real democratic politics and, unfortunately for the British people, that is something that neither Clegg and his party, nor other mainstream politicians, and their parties, are interested in pursuing.
