The markets are in turmoil apparently and the guys in the suits on the news are talking about a double dip recession so the only conclusion that we can reach is that whatever the Worlds politicians have been doing for the past 3 years, it hasn't worked.
Jobs have been slashed and services removed all for nothing. Nice one guys.
The man responsible in the UK for running the economy is George Osbourne, a proud owner of a degree in Modern History from Oxford University. Great if you want to know about the Age of Enlightenment but not so good if you are in charge of a tanking economy.
After leaving University, Boy George had a job entering the names of people who had died into a National Health Service computer and then worked for Selfridges, re-folding towels before taking up a job at Conservative Central Office.
So there we have the man who we entrusted to guide us out of the choppy waters, a History graduate with NVQ Level 1 IT skills and can fold a towel but no qualifications or experience in economics.
If i took my tax return to an accountant and he told me he didn't actually have any knowledge or experience of accounting but he would give it a go anyway, I wouldn't even open the door I would be out of there so quick so why are we willing to leave such huge decisions that affect the whole nation to such a man?
Why not appoint someone like the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable who has a PhD in Economics hanging on his wall and lectured at the University of Glasgow and the London School of Economics.
If i had to ask one of these to look through my accounts and another to fold my towels, i know which one i would be handing my receipts to and who would be directed to the airing cupboard.
It would be interesting to see how many of the people making the decisive decisions around the World have qualifications or even previous experience in Economics.
