    Do you think the UK is too soft nowadays?

    Spending cuts and other financial problems have forced tens of thousands of people to protest against the governments of many European countries.

    But our government is treating us even worse, yet nobody does anything?
    We now have massive spending cuts, fuel costs increasing constantly, almost every possible thing is causing increased costs for the consumer.

    Why don't we all make a stand? Or mass protest and force the government to be fair to everyone?

    The problem with fair is that one person's fair is another's discrimination. We'd never agree!

    "Fair to everyone" - That simply doesnt exist.

    With all your millions Guv , how did you end up on a deals forum X)

    Britain got used to financial and consumerist gluttony.
    125% mortgages
    Credit Cards with stupid limits
    People getting accustomed to living beyond their means

    And people are SURPRISED that we have to slash away at spending?

    No it's going to be amusing to watch the next few years as people moan and whine and bitch about the hard times they imposed upon themselves, people want so badly to blame the bankers, yet our own disgusting spending consumer addiction is barely mentioned, it can't be, because they need us to continue to fund their growth.

    The chinese save over 50% of their income, can you imagine the culture shock to the UK if we even attempted to match that?
    China went from number 6 biggest economy in the world, overtook the UK and became number 2 in the last 18months, yes their currency valuation helped, but why have THEY benefited in the last 18months? Ask yourself that.

    Too many people living hand to mouth with debts and virtually no savings imo, none of which really have the right to moan. Those same people who will have a huge reality check on their mortgage/benefits when the interest rate goes up and the cuts kick in.

    For the LOLs.(I get lots of them.)

    @ Schizoboy - I can blame the greedy bankers. I havent stretched myself with any credit and have fluid assets larger than most peoples mortgages. I dont blame people wanting to get on the housing ladder and over stretching themselves. It's wrong to say they are the ones being irresponsible whilst these bankers have gambled and lost - and I and you have to pay the price for their failure and greed.

    However, I have no intention of rioting.

    Where have i said a need for a violent protest? I'm talking about a non-violent protest, like blocking off roads, sitting in the streets or something.

    Every winter about 2mm of snow brings the entire country to a grinding halt, and nobody bothers to work.
    If a slither of snow can do that much effect, than a non-violent protest would be a hundred times more effective.

    If you hate the country so much why not move to one of the countries you are always supporting with your pro terrorist rants?

    That's because the cuts haven't actually happened yet.

    Wait until the spending review is announced. VAT goes up in January, National Insurance from April as well as public services cuts. Then you'll see marches and protests.

    Wrong Government to attack now......the ones to blame are:
