Why I think we’re in a recession

Why I think we’re in a recession

Right, well most of you will likely not agree with me here but if it’s not the cause then it’s certainly a contributing major factor.
<Boring Part>

I was sat on the toilet last night and my bare feet were on this lovely rug in the toilet, it was rather big, super soft and I was like wow noice!

Thanks to my wonderful parents it still had the price tag of £8.99 on it, which made me kind of shudder how people could make such products for such a price, and then a retailer sell it for a profit.

I then began thinking… this took as per usual some great many hours to get going and finally ding! I forgot to take my washing out, no wait …back on track.

</Boring Part>
We’re basically massive consumers in England, we actually manufacture little now, and we’re in this thinking the British people that we don’t give a flying fuckery where something is made, aslong as it’s either:  A, Cheap or B, Good Quality or C, Both.

So we’ve lost our British Pride, but not only that, our constant shopping around for the better deal is closing margins upon margins upon margins, to basically where companies are forced to sell loss leaders more and more, and the luxury items have been reduced so much that the profit isn’t enough to cover the loss leaders.

An ignorant person would then think, Sup Bitch! Cheap prices are good if we’re in a recession, means people can afford more stuff!

Downside, cost cutting, job cutting, less wages, less safety buffer, companies who cannot compete with the low costs simply fall over and die….    ..the cheaper imported shite from China is now killing our Industry since we cannot match the cost.

So, the next time you pick up a fantastic rug for under £10 that’s made in India or China, think British, we’re gonna need the support to survive, after all if it was between British / Scottish steak or some fantastic cheap *Made in China* steak, which would you go for? And how much more would you be willing to spend?

Thought’s are of course always welcome unless you’re going to prove me wrong, then you can GTFO, haha only kiddin’!

    This isn’t the reason we’re in this mess but it’s not helping matters. here’s why we’re in the recession:

    I watched this program called Benefit Busters the other night about this company which was trying to coach out of work single mums back into work and off benefits. One of the women hadn’t had a job in years and had amassed debts of £75,000!

    Lenders had given this woman seventy-five grand in debt which there was no way in hell she could afford to pay back. This all gets passed around and around and lands on the banks, who hold our savings. Banks have to swallow the cost of these douchebags’ mistakes meaning they can’t lend to responsible people and businesses. And before long… POP! We’re in recession.

    That’s quite true too, I don’t understand why those bastards will not give me £5,000 to buy a car with but they’ll give a single mum with no job a credit list longer than the great wall of china!

    We’re in a recession because the TV says so 🙂

    “A million jobs lost here there and everywhere”

    Then lurking in the small print “100 jobs created somewhere else”

    Its all buzzwords, and its all hysteria that is used by financial directors all over the world so that when people go for a raise or a bonus, they can answer “But, we’re in a recession”

    Its all bollocks and there are plenty of fucking jobs available – i must pass at least one shop window a day with a sign in saying “Help needed”

    The fact of the matter is most of these serial-doleites are so accustomed to living on their dole wage – and in some cases earn more on the dole, than they could in work as they are thick fucks cos they wagged it at skool init!

    School? Wuts school? Is this new? hahaha 😀

    That doesnt help true Olly, theres quite a few jobs which the English people seem to not want to do, giving more and more reasons each year for illegals to come into England and work :<
