    Tens of thousands of people demonstrated to communicate their disagreement with the neoliberal policy of Cameron this Saturday, 20th of October.  "Stop to the policies of austerity" was in every mouth! Austere policies don't work when will governments understand it?

      A Government headed by Cameron never will. They actually don't care, they are making changes which they feel will be irreversible.And if, which is highly likely, the Labour party win the next election we'll be stuck with those changes. Apparently there were in excess of 150,000 people marching in London (the TUC had anticipated approx 100, 000, so this was an excellent turnout) I suspect that there'll be a general strike soon.

      The Coalition appears to be in pretty deep trouble in this country anyway, even the right wing press have turned against them. It'll be interesting to see what happens to Camaeron et. al over the coming months.

      Austerity doesn't work, the double dip recession indicates so.

        One country in Europe got rid of its deep recession and it is Iceland. Contrary to the majority of the Europeans, its people decided to take their future in charge. They fired their president, they let the banks involved in the financial crashed collapse... And now, it is experiencing economical growth. If Iceland did it with the same symptoms, any country can make their recovery!
