There’s a banking crisis (you maybe noticed). There are public funds going around to pay off debts incurred by bankers, hedge fund traders, spread betters and stupid mortgage lenders.
If that’s the case, then other debtors should get a share. Why?
- We are less irresponsible than them. It was my money that I lost, not a pension fund’s
- It’s cheaper to bail us out and more efficient
- There’s more of us
- The UK has massive levels of consumer debt. Here’s your chance to get it out of the economy, Mr Darling!
