Seren, do they really want a say in how the countries run or manufacture its breakup?

I think the Tories are worried about the circumstances of the SNP holding labour/the country to ransom, not unlikely given their open resentment of Westminster and the Callaghan government bei b forced into a vote of no confidence in 1979.

Mutley the crash may have been caused in part by the finance big boys but they were fulfilling a need from people falling over themselves to borrow.

The government were in charge of regulation, Gordon Brown had knighted Fred Goodwin for services to banking.

What the government can't be excused of is not preparing for an impending crash, they believed their own rhetoric that there would be no boom and bust.

After the banks failed the UK economy fell much further than any other major economy, we suffered a much deeper recession than France, Germany, Japan, USA (I could go on) this was driven by reckless overspending and mismanagement, millions had been committed in defence, NHS. Remember it was going to cost us more to cancel the aircraft carriers than build them.

What worries me about this election (which can be evidenced by posts on this thread) isthat a significant number of people don't understand the economy, money and debt, nor the consequences of various different policies.

Living wage, austerity, redistribution of wealth are banded around with high intention but little concept of reality. Yes we can jam today but it'll be at the cost of dry bread tomorrow.

How is the government earnings profit from financial repression? The impact of low inflation means the relative value of the debt is maintained.

Financial 'repression' is a benefit to borrowers/prospective borrowers whom it could be argued have a greater need for support than savers, who by nature are typically more wealthy.

In any case financial repression only impacts those holding money in low interest accounts. A savvy saver would have their assets split accross multiple assets classes and types, which even for risk adverse would have achieved a pre tax return of 8% in 2015.
