Austerity is a funny old thing.
The biggest promotion of it comes from those immune. Politicians, bankers and wealthy business owners. Media throughout the western world inform *cough* us that its the only way to straighten out a broken economy and lead us through to prosperity.
I don’t speak to many people. At all. But those I do dont recognise the narrative peddles by so many of these interested parties.
Sod the bankers, sod the markets, sod the balance of payments.
Feed, heat, clothe and protect people. Bloody human people.
Right I’m off out to buy a pasty.
