Mortgage debt not irresponsible

IN view of all the talk about a bailout for those struggling to meet mortgage repayments, may I point out that it is not down to people being irresponsible with their money and taking out mortgages they could not afford as in fact most people were in jobs that allowed them to afford such mortgages.

Tell me how they were to foresee they would lose their jobs?

Yet we now have the Government, the media and the people pointing the finger at them and saying they deserve what they get.
