Pay yer bills....

A Prime Minister has just launched an appeal to his loyal, devoted citizens..........for the sake of the economy. The fact of the matter is that common sense is often led by example, and the Government can only pay its bills by borrowing, ie - taking Credits!
Well - not a long time ago, I suggested that nobody uses common sense any more, and this is common sense...."pay yer bills" - yes, 'course we will - when we can, if we can - just don't know how to!
THAT is common sense, and it's also fact!
A seemingly out of touch Prime Minister who suggests that paying your bills will be good for the economy is on the right path....?
 Well - since every single person in the country concerned, from newly born to almost dead, is in debt to the tune of somewhere around  an awful lot more than they can ever pay back in
    their lives!
This map was back in 2010, and people needed this credit, just to pay their monthly bills. It hasn't got any better, just more expensive.

Even the monthly repayments which allow a few pennies of relief don't help, because those few pennies go back into tying up the month's ending, always up to the maximum...always paying the maximum in interest rates, always listening to Banks, Bankers, Lawyers, Dentists and Company all squealing about how they can't live, always following the rich and famous giving out their "bonuses" freely and reading their "advice to lesser mortals"!  ..I know - I've been there!
And then some out of touch, totally ignorant Prime Minister, claiming to represent a Country and its Citizen's way of living come up with what he clearly feels to be a piece of excellent common sense and advice. Says it, beams all around.........

"congratulations Mr Prime Minister, you told 'em!"......

then he pops off on a weekend break......
some place called "Chequers" - a little thing we'd all like to have, just a little weekend country home - free of charge, where we can think over how to:
