How exciting. The Unions are going to bring the unemployed out on the streets (it'll be an afternoon phenomenon owing to the getting out of bed in the morning problems of the economically inactive.). They are going to riot, we are promised, unless middle class people give up their winter fuel allowances and child benefits, which they don't need. And the middle classes must pay higher taxes so that the 'stimulus' can continue and not drive the UK economy into a double dip now that Brown has led us all safely into economic recovery - fragile, though, and vulnerable to evil middle class tax avoiders and their child benefit greed.
It's the best solution, or at least the most entertaining. The unemployed can be joined by the public 'service' workers (threatened with unemployment by the middle classes consuming their own tax payments), and fight the police, on the telly, watched by those unemployed too lazy to be out there fighting.
That'll be the circuses bit. As for bread, there's still a bit more money-printing room before confidence collapses completely and we start on the Weimar re-run.
