Reuters uk: Unrest risks seen rising in 2010 as stimulus ends

LONDON (Reuters) - Civil unrest and attacks on minorities did not rise sharply during the economic crisis in 2009 as many predicted, but with unemployment still high and stimulus packages being withdrawn the risk could rise next year.

Funny how the problem is framed that a *lack* of stimulus might lead to civil unrest.

The idea that the policy of the central bank printing unprecedented amounts of cash might lead to hyperinflation and government being overthrown is simply not even entertained

What nonsense! We are a small island with a growing population so property prices will rise and everything will be OK.

It is the responsibility of all effected by the greed of the city to ensure unrest, and plenty of it, is properly targetted on the plunderers, their institutions and their political puppets (many of whom are about to get fifty grand a piece from me and you as they bow out from their successfully executed public duties, leaving the mess behind them, for a carreer in big business!) Further, that such unrest is organised and directed at playing havoc with their interests and investments. For the many amateur wheelers and dealers who frequent this site, you might like to remind yourselves that you are the beneficiaries of a publicly funded education and cradle to grave welfare consider the historical circumstances of how that was torn from the unwilling grasp of the plutocracy. I assure you that more than a little unrest was anticipated. Or do you think there was more money in the coffers after WW2?

Timeout @ 3
My childhood experience was of that tough, thrifty, austere - dare I say, even “green” - era.
Believe me, the “wimps of today,” would not stand a chance, and may well die in their droves!!
Hmm…perhaps a potential solution!!

When most people understand that the banks along with the government have monopolised our housing market via every trick in the book

to extract maxim profit at the expense of a now forgotten generation, then yes, civil unrest it is and needs to be.

Civil Unrest is the only way forward. I would suggest burning down politicians houses. :0)
