I can only think that the needy will suffer. For example I know of a local centre for the elderly that provides activities and events for them to do during the day. It apparently helps reduce suicide rates considerably. Recently they had their funding cut (although I should point out that it was in fact under the last government) and they're now struggling to cope. I can't see the sense in that. Where exactly is money needed more urgently?

If we need more money let's tax the rich more. Okay it's a little bit unfair on them but surely it's more unfair to take away lifelines for the less well off.

well I keep hearing people parroting the words 'we can't afford it' but the fact is 'We' have never been able to afford it but 'They' the people sending this letter to the government can afford it but they choose not to. They choose not to help the needy; the disabled and the elderly. This crisis was entirely down to the banks and yet they blackmail us with threats of leaving the country should we try to get our money back.
If there is less money to go around you have a choice you tighten up across the board ensuring those at the bottom don't fall through the net or you screw those at the bottom and keep your champagne lifestyle.
And when it comes to stimulating business growth - well the banks are screwing that by not supporting business loans and when the government go about cutting back on DLA a support allowance which enables disabled people to work then they will wipe out a whole layer of working people - those that are disabled and working. I could go on... I really don't believe this totally about the current economy it is about the Tory ideaology of stripping away all state run supports.

and the stock market is a poisonous cancer on our lives. Started out of greed and now catering for unbridled greed. It is this that makes people have to work themselves into the ground just to keep afloat because it demands constant increase of profit. Not just profit but increase. It has become so ingrained that it has totally destroyed common sense in business. It fosters constant fear and created these circumstances.

So whilst those at the bottom must cut back everything. Where are those at the top cutting back?
