Live Within Your Means

A gobment voice has said that it is you...the average bloke that is responsible for the horrendous debts of this nation that "taxes" the minds of the gobment. You my friend borrowed and mortgaged beyond your means. How say you? Are you responsible? Did you borrow beyond your means? Are you living on credit cards? If so why is this so? Can't you just rein in your spending?

Here was me thinking it was businesses run by the friends of politicians who'd been living institutionally beyond their means that were the root of the problem. Here, it was me and the £12,000 left on my mortgage all along.

D'you think they can ever forgive me?

There's an old saying - robbing Peter to pay Paul will always get Paul's vote. That's exactly what politicians have been doing for years - it's just the G Brown did it to manic levels, in order to cement the client votes.

It worked - there are tens of millions of them, and we're paying for the privilege.

Surely the banks have to bear responsibility for lending zillions to people whose sole assets were a pair of worn underpants?

They had to lend to someone - WTF?

To quote a different, and former government voice "My response would be both spherical and plural."

The trillion quid debt Gordon left behind was almost all down to profligate waste. Billions spunked on global warming in his last few weeks in power alone. Free BMWs for Biffs. Unlimited housing benefit so asylum seekers could live in mansions in Westminster. A million extra civil servants to massage the unemployment figures.

That lot doesn't come cheap.

No it won't. Your student loan costs you nothing until you earn over £23,000 (I think) and gets cancelled after 30 (again, from memory) years if you've not repaid it. The banks don't treat it as normal debt either, so I'm told.

If people hadn't been willing to pay £300,000 for a two up two down in Middlesborough because Sarah Bigtits told them they could repaint the living room and stick a new toilet in and sell it for £500,000 they wouldn't be so fucked now.

Brits (in general) have ridden the wave of cheap credit for years. The banks were stupid for lending them the money but no ****** put a gun against their head and forced them to beg for more money than they can count up to to buy a hovel.

Whatever happened to the 'if you can't afford, it you can't have it' way of thinking ? If you want sth you save up for it.
