Thanks to the current banker-induced recession, the UK is broke. So broke that it is slashing benefits for the unemployed, the sick, and the disabled. So broke it has hiked student fees to £9,000 a year. So broke it is gutting the NHS.

So naturally, the Conservative government there is planning to cut taxes on the rich. Because obviously, the best possible time to do this is in the middle of a recession when you have no money.

Its the government equivalent of a CEO who pays himself a massive bonus when the company he runs is going bankrupt - and just as repugnant. In the depths of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the wealthy are feathering their own nests at the direct expense of everybody else. No wonder people are rioting over there...
