During his recent speech on the economy in Batley, West Yorkshire, David Cameron nailed his colours to the mast of S.S. Britannia when speaking on the economy. He steadfastly refused to consider any other alternative strategy. There is only one way, more austerity, more cuts in public spending. Suffering is the price ordinary people in Batley and elsewhere are paying for his bravado!
He tells us “there is no money tree”: that is only half true! There is no money tree in Sheffield, perhaps, but on Threadneedle Street and Canary Wharf the money trees blossom all year round, and the harvest continues to make the rich richer than ever, while for the rest we get poorer.
