As if the bankers would stand for this
Europe’s biggest banks may need to hold core-capital reserves of as much as 17 percent under plans being weighed by European Union lawmakers.
If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
The more houses cost, the more hours you have to work to buy one. The more hours you work, the more taxes you have to pay the Governbankment. The more debt you take on, the more interest you have to pay bankers, so the more hours you also have to work for them.
A "Governbankment" is a Government like ours, that has no line between itself and banks. It diverts public money (our taxes) to private companies (banks). George Osborne's Help to
Buy Bail Banks, promises our taxes will go to bankers, to cover their losses on any mortgages that default.
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.
