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.

We are living in difficult times, being encouraged to socially distance ourselves. It is essential that our union organisation remains intact. Indeed, in this environment our collective organisations are not only needed but should be made to thrive. https://digital.tuc.org.uk/working-remotely-for-trade-unions/
