  • “The trade union Impact said workers did not cause the economic collapse but they were being forced to pay for it.”

    Hmm. I wonder how many of those workers took on a big debt to get on the ladder? I don’t suppose these people would see the connection between the Irish property mania and their current problems.

    “I’m thinking it’s the toxic assets of European banks”

    Yes and no. It’s the AMOUNT of toxic assets I was hoping you’d pick up on, or rather the fact that the mainstream media clearly believes it too large an amount for us to cope with – hence the censorship.

    Back on topic…

    If Gordon Brown decides that cutting public sector salaries by 7% is a good idea, then he should expect a similar reaction – for starters.
