Dragging out the truth about our finances

Who can we trust to tell us the truth? It appears, as Margaret Hodge MP points out, that you have to resort to Private Eye or courageous whistleblowers. We know that big companies are not paying taxes, but HMRC are failing to tackle it and coming to cosy arrangements over billions of pounds. The rest of us lose our jobs, pensions, homes and essential services and are held to ransom over fuel and food bills by the same mighty corporations who have taken over everything, apart so far from fresh air. Even that has been highly polluted!
Pensions not affordable? That’s what we’ve been told. When I started teaching in the nineteen sixties there were complaints that the pension pot was too fat and something had to be done about that! We’re told we’re living too long and that’s not affordable. We’re not told this. Yes the fat cats are taking the cream. Be sure in the festive season they are very merry and jolly as they plan bigger and better scams for 2012.
Politicians of all persuasions seem to be dazzled by the prospect of wealth, and when we had thought they were busy looking after our interests they were feathering their own nests and joining in the “tax avoidance industry” The former Prime Minister, leader of New Labour and Peace Envoy in the Muddle East spends his free time showing others to massage their greed upwards as their Christian duty.
