Legacy of Debt

I see that David Cameron is once again campaigning on not leaving future generations to bear a “legacy of debt” – with the notable exception, one presumes, of the legacy of tuition fees which will hang like an albatross around our children’s necks for a significant part of their working lives… if they can even find a job.

Presumably, determination to repay that “legacy of debt” was foremost in Cameron’s mind when he cut corporation tax, when he cut the top rate of income tax and when he re-privatised the profitable East Coast Rail. I imagine that the very same determination is also behind the further tax cuts that he’s promising to implement if he’s re-elected.

It just seems a terrible shame that we won’t be leaving future generations a legacy of public services, libraries or an NHS…

About Fles

Early middle-aged (oh yes I am!), no longer long-haired but still speccy and decidedly still an increasingly opinionated git. I’m basically a believer in individualism, that everybody has their own perspective and inner-beauty. I try to find humour in every situation. I enjoy reading and writing poetry.
