No Austerity When It Comes To Cameron’s Spending £50 million on a Holocaust Memorial.
Dont forget that this money will come from borrowing so we will be paying interest on that for years to come and even more tax. Cui Bono “to whose benefit?”
Holocaust remembered at 2,400 events around UK
Holocaust Memorial Day has been marked in the UK since 2001 and it was announced yesterday that a new national memorial to the victims of the Holocaust is to be built in London.
Prime Minister David Cameron said the UK government will contribute £50 million towards the “striking and prominent” monument, as well as the establishment alongside it of a “world-class” education centre to maintain awareness for generations to come of what he described as “the darkest hour of human history”.
How the tories lowered your taxes and lowered the national debt ha ha ha ha

Craig Murray – The citizens of the United Kingdom gave 45,000 pounds each, every man woman and child of them, direct to the bankers in bailouts. We will be paying off that money in taxes – with vast sums in interest to the same bankers, from whom we borrowed virtual money they did not have, to give to them as real money – for generations to come. Quantitive easing gives yet more money to the bankers, cash in place of risky bonds they wish to dump.
When you add it all together including interest, every man, woman and child in the UK will pay over 100,000 pounds each to the bankers, to bail out the bankers from the mess their own extreme greed had created. Indeed it is possible to argue rationally that the payment will be infinite, as the debt incurred will never be repaid but continually rolled over, and interest payments continue.
We did not have to do this. We could have let the bad banks go bust, started new ones, and boosted the economy by spending just 20% of the money we have given the banks on crucially needed public infrastructure works – railways, renewable energy, housing, insulation, hospitals, schools etc. But Gordon Brown and New Labour decided just to give money to the bankers instead.
