Spin,

You're spinning in ever diminishing circles, as always, like the oozle woozle bird.

I support free markets, which is not what we have in Ukey banking, is it?

<<Stealing money from the unemployed>> What money is being stolen from the unemployed? The unemployed are paid more than they have ever been. Benefits payments in UKey are at an all time high.

If the gov had not propped up the banks (which, imo, it should never have allowed to run out of control) what would have happened to the old and infirm? What would have happened to your savings and job?

Spinny, who owns the UK banks? The people in UK banks who made the big bucks in the boom were not the shareholders (those you call Capitalists) but their top employees. Bank shares are now worth frig all. However you (and most of the working pop) still have a job, a house and your bank deposits are still there.

Spinnaker, historically, Capitalism and welfare state redistribution, has raised the lifestyles of everyone in Ukey to levels undreamt of in your philosophy.

Even in this recession more is being produced and consumed by more worldwide than ever before. The world's Global Gini coefficient is falling. Income distribution is becoming more even, as poor countries grow faster than rich countries.

Historically, in rich countries, the Geni Coefficient fell as incomes rose, that is until around 30 years ago when, for reasons no one seems to be able to explain, they started to rise. One thing seems sure though, it wasn't because they became more capitalist and less socialist. What do you think caused it?

Do you think the super rich, who you seem obsessed with, want to see most of the population have falling living standards? How would that benefit them when they make their money out of a consumerist system as you keep saying?

How so Funty?

That you claim to have no idea, really isn't worth a toss.
