Pincer movement

The banks don't pass on the interest rate cuts to the people and the fall in the price of oil doesn't translate into falling prices in the petrol stations because the pound is falling against the dollar.
Which ever way up - the rich always have to win.

To help get round this, cue more programs about the starving in the 'third world'. Not that they're concerned about it, or are prepared to do anything about it - but theydo it to prompt just enough people to think 'Well we don't have it so bad really even though we are unemployed and on ten quid a day at least we're not like these poor sods.'
