i think that is what druidh is aiming at.
I know exactly what druidh was aiming at. God only knows how often he keeps prattling on about it.....I was determined not to give him the opportunity to regurgitate it one more time.
It's just complete nonsense anyway. In the same way that if I complained after having to spend £300 because my 24volt SDS drill had been stolen, it would be nonsense for someone to claim that the drill hadn't in fact cost me anything, on the basis that it would in future, save me money.
The reality is that the government should be making money out of banking anyway - or at least offering the services at reduced costs to customers. Rather than leaving it all to a bunch of greedy incompetent bonus-addicted chancers.
I don't remember btw, the Tories arguing that the bank bailouts were absolutely fine as the government would profit long-term from it. And of course exactly the same could be argued about the fiscal stimulus, ie how could it be costing anything if long-term it will have repaid itself ?
The truth is, as project suggests, that the bankers recession has cost as dearly - in jobs, wages, housing stock, etc etc . And just to link it back nicely with university education :
