Wasn’t that the slogan thought up by Cameron and Osborne?
A snappy little slogan too! It said we all had to tighten our belts because the country could not afford to pay everyone what they were being paid. We were living beyond our means.
This year George Osborne’s income has been in excess of £2,000,000 (£165,000 from Blackrock, approaching £2,000,000 from lectures, £85,000 for being an MP and undisclosed amount from being appointed editor of the Evening Standard.
David Cameron’s earning are not available but I know he is converting a shed in order to write his memoires – I wonder how much for?
So while nurses have to use food banks and all public sector workers have had pay and pensions slashed, the superrich have doubled their income and the politicians are creaming it in.
We’re all in it together? Well most of us are in the poo together!
