I wish I could recall who said it:

“The Masses are Asses”

Pretty much sums up the recent elections in France. How long are their terms? The morong is actually promising a 75% tax rate and INCREASING government spending when they are already drowning in debt.

Anyone else predicting a bad result?

The UK may talk a good game but they’re still hellbent on wasting gobs of $ in their search for a green utopia.

I knew it would die before it was created... I just didn't think that it would take this long. It has destroyed most of Europe. We fare little better.

It's all over for all of us. We just don't know it yet.

The crash will start in the EU and spread globally. It is a progressive's wet dream.

Cameron, going back on austerity has been done before. It can always be done. Just start spending more money.

Austerity is unavoidable.

A country can try to run from it, but it will catch up with them eventually.

WHAT austerity? The UK raised taxes on the rich...

Things have moved on. The latest budget from the Con/Lib Dem coalition axed the 50% marginal top rate of income tax, and also cut corporation tax.

You really need to look at the whole picture to get a sense of what this government is doing. Yes, there have been a few tax rises but also a lot of cuts. But it's the expenditure cuts, and the net effect on the deficit, which are the big story. Overall since this government came into office it's made the largest reduction in the size of government (up to 40% in the case of some departments) in modern times. It's more than even Margaret Thatcher at her most radical attempted over such a short period.

It’s austerity across the board. Balance the budget. Taxes up, benefits down, government downsized....
