The (ex) Great Leader speaks
He makes some good points - especially about the current financial situation being the creation of the financial sector. He is also right about the double standards as there is no way the Tory South East heartlands will bear the brunt of the devastating blow brought about by the budget cuts. I disagree with the way he seems to suggest public sector jobs are a special case. In my opinion all jobs losses are tragic, and especially those in manufacturing because when a nation can no longer manufacture for itself it becomes totally dependent on other nations who still have the capacity to manufacture.
