More than money at risk
The free economy created by sensible, ethical people in Britain and the Anglosphere is being lost to those who exploited it unethically -
Anyone over the age of 40 will recall the abiding result of the days when we had a socialist economy in this country: poverty. We had better prepare for some more of that. The state does not have its own money to engage in stock market speculations, such as buying shares in clearing banks. It undertakes this gamble with our money.
