‘Britain’s Trillion Pound Horror Story’ on Channel 4 last night should be shown to all secondary school children. Why? For no better reason than Bill Bonner’s quote from the programme, about the scandal,
“The only way they [government and politicians] get away with this is that the unborn and young don’t vote.”
It’s today’s and tomorrow’s children who’ll have to solve this problem. The sooner they understand it, the better for all of us.
Channel 4 describe the programme as an explanation of “the full extent of the financial mess we are in: an estimated £4.8 trillion of national debt and counting. … that to put Britain back on track we need to radically rethink the role of the state, stop politicians spending money in our name and introduce, among other measures, flat taxes to make Britain’s economy boom again.”
