As tough as it may be for many hardworking honest people, this is actually wonderful news. Continuous economic growth is unsustainable. Britain's population is unsustainable and even more so if we don't cut consumption. We should cut long-term benefits for all but a small minority of adults with genuine severe physical / sensory disabilities. Cut child benefits after 2 births and abolish working family tax credits. Increase the minimum wage to £10 an hour. Introduce import controls to help the rebirth of home-grown manufacturing. Encourage sustainable development abroad. Plan for 90% food self-sufficiency. Tax non-doms... Curb banker bonuses. We need to power down, not give a corrupt economy another adrenalin rush.
