Austerity for ever – A British disease

Osborne who started it without a mandate vandalised the country for two years in the name of reducing the deficit and debt. Everyone said he would make things worse. He owned up today to doing so and decided on a double dose of making it worse for us till 2018 at least. How they work out this figure is anyone’s guess. Neoliberalism and the finance houses are on an anarchic road to ruin of countries and the majority of their inhabitants. With such respect and euphemisms that will abound in the pundits’ frenzy of budget analysis, the key question who runs Britain will be forgotten. Finance capital with its blessing of the fast buck remains rampant and unleashed and in power in Parliament writing the Chancellor’s script.. The free market is one problem. The domination of our political structures at all levels by the financiers and their accountants is another. And it is a more profound one.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
