In Britain austerity is changing everything

In Britain austerity is changing everything

After eight years of budget cutting, Britain is looking less like the rest of Europe and more like the United States, with a shrinking welfare state and spreading poverty.


PRESCOT, England — A walk through this modest town in the northwest of England amounts to a tour of the casualties of Britain’s age of austerity.

The old library building has been sold and refashioned into a glass-fronted luxury home. The leisure center has been razed, eliminating the public swimming pool. The local museum has receded into town history. The police station has been shuttered.

Now, as the local government desperately seeks to turn assets into cash, Browns Field, a lush park in the center of town, may be doomed, too. At a meeting in November, the council included it on a list of 17 parks to sell to developers.

“Everybody uses this park,” says Jackie Lewis, who raised two children in a red brick house a block away. “This is probably our last piece of community space. It’s been one after the other. You just end up despondent.”

Another massive FAIL for Corbyn.
He said:

"Mr Corbyn urged delegates to "treat people with respect" and said there would be "no rudeness from me".
"Cut out the personal abuse, cut out the cyber-bullying and especially the misogynistic abuse online and let's get on with bringing real values back into politics", he said."

That was nearly 3 years ago
He can't even control his own fanboys
How on earth is he going to run a country?

I don't think so.
Even his fanboys won't do what he says.

Did you not know that austerity is an EU requirement?

"According to the European Union’s Maastricht criteria, EU member states may not have a budget deficit that exceeds three percent of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP) or a national debt that exceeds of sixty percent of the GDP."

Errr - that 'article' isn't "according to the Guardian"

It's a personal article from an anti-Corbyn feminist who is married to Robert Sackville-West, 7th Baron Sackville....

And as a piece of muddled, confused and difficult to read journalism, it stands high among its' peers.
