Vince Cable telling us that the British economy could do a free fall and we could end up with another financial crisis is nothing new to the people of this country; we are already feeling the brunt of the problem.
It never ceases to amaze me that every time there is a so-called conservative government we end up with diabolical financial crisis and a struggling economy. However, this time the conservative can share the blame with the LibDem, and that will be an interesting thing to see.
We are already aware of how bad the economy is and that is borne out with the cost of living and the amount of expenditure that most poor households are experiencing, the cost of living have rocketed in the last two years and the people who have to cope with the high cost of surviving is naturally the most vulnerable within our society.
This country will always face economic crisis because the government do not seems to realise that people are its biggest asset and if you do not invest in people that you are always going to end with the crisis that we are now facing, they seems to always go for quick fix and that just patch the problems it does not repair the overwhelming damage that has been done to our economy.
Education is the way forward and one of the ways in which we can build a strong economic base, yet young people are facing an uphill task just to be able to acquire a university degree, and those who manage to go to university leave with debt hanging over their head even before they acquire their first job.
This government and past conservative administration always target the poor of society and by doing so they create more poverty, less job, and a frustrated nation of people who begin to take ‘a do not care attitude’ and then they have the audacity to be surprise when the country falls into recession and our economic outlook is deemed dire.
Granted the world may be facing financial crisis and that have an impact on the UK however we could be in a stronger position if our government was a forward thinking rather than one that continues to live in the past and constantly try to reverse the British way of life by pushing it further in to the archaic age.
A country that does not take care of its children and its old people will eventually find themselves in crisis, first the children because they are the future and secondly, the elderly because they have the experience that is necessary to progress the country and this government does not have a clue how to do that so them being in the situation that they are in is no surprise to the vast majority of us who understand that they have made a complete cock-up of the whole situation.
It is such a shame that we do not have a progressive government and all that we can do is to tighten our belts and ride out the financial crisis that is bound to hit us much harder than it is now, and hope that the next election we elect individuals that will be able to bring back the country from the brink of financial collapse and put us back on the road to recovery.
