Mugged & Mute...

Watching the news is like witnessing a mugging and being unable to shout for help.

It is astounding that we are fed statement after statement about how our taxes will be used to save the banks - the banks say they will only start behaving like banks if they get the money ... not 'like' extortion, this IS extortion.

The figures of millions and billions and trillions just roll off the tongues of the politicians and bankers with such ease - as we and the next generations go into debt to ensure their pensions and bonuses.

We should have elected governments of philosophers - politicians are not equipped for the job.
