Camerons Promise To Savers. Before The Last Eleciton...

Recommended Posts

What he said:

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2009/jan/05/davidcameron-conservatives

"Cameron said that this was "economically stupid and morally indefensible" because the government ought to be encouraging people to save, not punishing them for doing so."

"We need to make a really big change: from an economy built on debt to an economy built on savings, from a country and government that has lived beyond its means to one that lives within its means," he said.

What they did:

From the "privatised post office, today:

"From time to time we have to make changes to our interest rate based on the current financial market conditions. As a result I am writing to notify you of a 0.25% gross1/AER2reduction to the underlying variable interest rate on your Online Saver account number "

"Previous gross rate: 0.9%. New Gross rate: 0.65%".

I know who I WONT be voting for at the general election!!!!

Have you tried to call them and ask why, after tax, they expect you to fund them.

Or maybe, where are they getting their money from :rolleyes: as I doubt anyone with any f*cking brain gives them theirs.

Well done Mr Cameron, "economically stupid and morally indefensible" because the government ought to be encouraging people to save, not punishing them for doing so."

Cameron is a committed and professional liar.

Lies on this and nearly every other plede from the election. wWth a track record like that everyone should be very circumspect any regards ANY policy that is presented be it regards the economy, health, services, taxation, or security.

"We need to make a really big change: from an economy built on debt to an economy built on savings, from a country and government that has lived beyond its means to one that lives within its means," he said.

How does this dovetail with his other strategy of 'getting the banks lending again' AKA- getting people into more debt?

does he have an evil twin?

Does he even understand that 95% or more of the money in the economy is created via debt and any nationwide effort to pay debt down would probably crash the system as that money supply shrank?

I'm not sure he does.

Gracchus: Fear and wonder, a powerful combination.

Falco: You really think people are going to be seduced by that?

Gracchus: I think he knows what Rome is. Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they'll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they'll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the senate, it's the sand of the coliseum. He'll bring them death - and they will love him for it.
