They must think we’re daft

I see our beloved leaders are still pushing the twin mantras of consumer consumption and property ownership.

Let’s build our way out of recession by having more houses for sale; lets keep the shops open all hours so we can have “choice”.  We are skint.  Thousands upon thousands can’t pay their bills for basics and you want us to troll round the shops on a Sunday for what exactly?  Presumably to check out the home furnishings for the house we can’t get a mortgage on.  Give me a break, please.
