US Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich described the $700bn bail-out of the US banks by the Bush administration as: “The largest single act of class warfare in the modern history of this country” In Britain £50bn is being doled out in a similar scheme. That’s approximately £833 for every man, woman and child in the country, or £1,500 for every taxpayer. If someone was to help themselves to £1,500 of your money and spend it wouldn’t you at least want to know how and why? Yet the language saturating the media is full of panic and obfuscation.
