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.
