The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Mass unemployment ..

We will soon be advised by our masters in the Coalition Government what sacrifice we must make in order to save the economy from ruin.

It looks like the the pain to be experienced will lead to massive job cuts - already we read in the newspapers of intended redundancies in both the public and private sector.

Even politicians are starting to worry that the spending cuts will result in a bad recession. Let's hope we do not head back to the days of 4 million unemployed ..

For those interested - sacrifice is a Middle English word via Old French from the Latin Sacrificium.

cuts should start at the top....Do we need six hundred plus MP's....cut them in proportion to the percentage of the electorate that voted.
