So… more austerity then.

In his Autumn statement, George Osborne admitted that Austerity in Britain will continue until at least 2018. I’m not going to go into the details of his plan, but I will say this:

Don’t expect it to stop there.

The fact is the UK, like all other nations, is now locked in what the Prime Minister recently called the economic equivalent of war. We are all, under the current system, now trapped in a global economic race to the bottom from which there is little hope of escape. What political party is in power will make little or no difference.

National governments will continue to slash and burn programs designed for the good of the citizens they supposedly represent – all to avoid being eaten alive by all powerful global markets.

It’s not going to stop unless we fundamentally change the rules of the game. Simpol puts the power back in the hands of citizens globally and thus allows for genuine global-level democratic governance.

It’s only going to get worse, unless we all take action together. Take that action today – join Simpol.
