George Osborne’s AAA: austerity austerity austerity - rejected!

Issue No. 2342

Tory chancellor George Osborne’s AAA (Arrogant Austerity Attacks) are in a mess.

The bungling baron said the reason for the cuts was to “maintain Britain’s AAA credit rating”.

The credit rating is an indicator for speculators on how safe a bet a country’s economy is.

But the money men in the market no longer think the economy is up to scratch. And it is true that we are on the edge of a triple-dip recession. Millions of ordinary people have felt the pain for the bosses’ gain.

The bankers and bosses agree with Osborne that the working class should be squeezed harder.

So let’s stamp them and their AAA, “Rejected”.
