What cash crisis?

Leaving aside the rights and wrongs of er! "not" bailing out the motor industry. Just how much deeper are the government pockets? And why? if there seems to be so much available in the current "crisis" that more of it was not used to modernise the railways, hospitals and many other worthy causes when times were much better? The "we can't afford it" excuse seems rather hollow now!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Maybe they've started the process of "quantitivie easing" or printing money to you and me.
Maybe thats why the pound is going down the sewer.

Petlew the government doesn't have pockets. When they need money they dip deeply into yours and mine. Angry

The taxpayer is the ultimate charge card, spend what you like on whatever nonsense and you never have to pay it back.

Within the next 6 months I bet we take our begging bowl to the International Monetary Fund.  The last labour government ended that way!!
