Waiting for a Recession


Whilst the media procrastinates over the economy and the economists talk us into a recession, households are tightening their belts and forsaking luxuries such as their modest little family holiday in Skegness.

Whilst social housing waiting lists are set to rise by the millions, levels of homelessness are increasing and bewilderingly, construction workers are being laid off, Senator John McCain nonchalantly tells the world that he doesn’t know how many homes he owns.

Whilst the average family is struggling to ride the increasing food, water, fuel and energy costs, Britain’s richest are getting richer and the world’s billionaires are taking advantage of the market situation and are using their spare billions to buy up companies while shares are cheap.

Ho hum.  Such is capitalism.
