Austerity overkill

• I really wish the head honchos in the EU would realise that their huge austerity measures, heaped on the small minority, are not working. Even the flea on the dog in the street knows that creating struggling householders, creates struggling economies.

By sucking people dry, they are also stifling the economy in every debt-ridden country in the EU. Holding crisis meeting after crisis meeting, where these EU leaders arrive in their chauffeur-driven vehicles, achieves nothing. And all the while, the mountain of debt rises.
