All we hear from government and the media at the moment is about the size of public debt, the need to cut public expenditure, along with demands and assurances that "we are all in this together".
Who exactly are WE? And does it include those amongst us to whom at least part of this huge debt is owed . . ? Or is there not for every debtor a creditor . . ?
To whom exactly are these billions of British and trillions of international debt owed, and what are THEY doing to help the situation . . ?
Or, as I strongly suspect, is the whole rotten system coiled around its own throat; notwithstanding that some (those in power, wealth and privilege), have their own, relatively secure supply of air . . ?
