    Thanks again for these, Nana.

    Having read the document in the Dinwoodie tweet and WGD’s article, I am puzzled. Austerity, both Labour- and Tory-style (distinction without a difference), has produced massive cut backs in public spending and yet, in ten years of Tory rule, the national debt has trebled to £2.1 trillion.

    What has all this money been spent on (since I am a bear of very little brane when it comes to economics and fiscal matters)? Why does not one of our brilliant and fearless investigative journalists ask this simple question of a government minister?

    Asking for a nation…..

      Excellent question Tinto, one which I’ve been puzzling over for some time.
      “Fearless investigative journalsists” I can just about remember when there were fearless investigative journos. Where did they all go?

    Hi Nana,
    Just a word to say thanks. I read your links every day. A bit tardy in showing appreciation, methinks.
    You provide such a range of sources which really sparks off a lot of thought and ideas.

    Keep up the godd work, please.

    Nana thanks for the links. I’m really busy once again so don’t have time to make comment about any of your links now. Suffice to say I read every one of them everyday.and use them to good effect (hopefully, lol). Keep up the good work. Won’t be long now (smiley). Best wishes Petra X
