Its bollocks. There is no recession. So your house has dropped Â£100K? Cry me a fucking river. Serves you right for watching those Property Ladder bollocks shows on C4 at 7.30pm where they say "Ooooh, put in a gazebo and a jacuzzi and you can make Â£100k overnight" They lied. Adjust. Fuel has gone up? Yeah but... Take a look at the jeans you wear? Â£4 from Asda. T shirts? Â£2 Kids school uniforms? Â£15 for two at Tesco while stocks last. Terms and conditions apply. You want to go there with Primark? Your bird comes back on a Friday afternoon, looking like a million dollars, and its cost her Â£20. Your laptop cost Â£250 and its got 5 times the power of the tower system you bought 10 years ago for Â£2,000. Flights? You can fly to Krakow for Â£20. I cant think why you would want to, but you can. iPods, Boses, power tools, yots, guns, beer, blow jobs, pasties, flowers, books, cheap suits, hedges, carrots, trampolines, fucking cars... are they harder to buy because of the credit crunch? No. They are getting cheaper. The recession is an invention of the Daily Mail and its about time we stopped buying into it. Take a look around? Are you better off than you were 10, 20 years ago? Or not?
