Needed to let off steam.
I saw a FT headline earlier saying that George Osborne was sticking to Plan A despite warning lights in the economy.
I'm sorry, but what is it that critics would like the government to do, exactly? Continue running a huge deficit? For what purpose? To finance our current lifestyles? To what end? A bankrupt nation for our children to inherit?
