So Cameron's Government of Goons (once thought of by me as led by a 'safe pair of hands' - Ho! Ho! Ho!) thinks that, by keeping the UK out of any direct cash subsidy for Greece, it will maintain its own status quo when, in fact, the shock waves from Greece's predicament are inevitably going to affect all the countries which are locked together in the rictus-grinning death-grip of the 'Europe Union'. All that refusal to participate will do will be to maintain the UK as the nastiest smell in the Union.
Moreover, the current British Government has not yet cottoned on to the fact that, when Garden Broom bailed out the British banks with public money, he was (in a phrase that a friend used about it recently) just pushing the car wreck around the corner out of sight) and a veritable storm is gathering overhead on that account alone. But the Goons in Government just sit around, as usual, navel-gazing.
Maybe, part of the trouble stems from the haemorraghing of public money on foreign 'campaigns', such as that in Afghanistan (and British blood too), and in paying developers, through the corrupt 'RDAs' - 'redevelopment' agencies - sums such as £58m spent in one south western town, to create an asset that is now for sale for £28m. Where did the other £30m go - ah! mostly into the developers' back pockets, after they had bribed various officials.
And Brazil and Pakistan are mocked for their corruption. My word.
