George Osborne, leader of the Wrecking Crew mk2

It’s very clear that what the UK is suffering is not ‘economic mismanagement’ by this government but a deliberate scheme of ‘planned misery’ (if you want to understand it and why, I can’t recommend Naomi Klein’s ‘The Shock Doctrine’ highly enough).

There’s a chilling article by David Harvey here which sums up the global picture
