Scare Tactics

Today's Times has a scary picture on the front cover. For most of the Red Tops and their right wing allies it seems that:
a) the recession is the fault of the centre left government; and
b) paying for the recession is not the problem of the rich, mostly right wing, people who caused it.

If the richer members of society (which I guess includes me) aren't going to pay for evening the keel, then who is, the poor? 10 years worth of bankers' bonuses would cover the entire budget deficit.

Nothing centre left about 'em in my book, dead centre is what I'd say. I actually have a friend on Facebook saying exactly what you've said here about a) & b) and I'd not describe him as rich. It's so depressing.

He actually wants the public sector to take pay cuts to fund the bail outs to keep the oh-so spectualarly good at their job bankers in the UK.

then who is, the poor?

Yes: ideally, that large subset of them that is weak and disorganized, so doesn't have a voice to protest it.
