Is this the end of Britain?

This article paints a very alarming picture. I am sure that the basic facts are true. I can't decide whether this was produced out of genuine concern or an over-elaborate sales pitch for their magazine.

It is clear that the welfare budget and pensions have to be addressed at some time but successive governments have steered away from radical action.

Quote:
This looming crisis is related to the financial crisis of 2008... but it will be infinitely more dangerous. As we’ll explain, there is an unsolvable problem at the heart of our financial system. One that dates back over a hundred years.

In that time this problem has eaten away more than £10 trillion in public funds. It has been at the root of practically every major political argument in this country, and it affects every aspect of the way we live our lives.

Twenty-five Prime Ministers – from both political parties – have come and gone without ever having come close to solving it.

We believe the outcome of this problem is inevitable… and the recession, joblessness and instability you see right now is only the first stage of it. Many people think the slump we’re in now is as bad as it will get.

But the truth is, it’s only the start.

This.

Early into reading it, I was thinking - ok, what are they selling.

Re: Is this the end of Britain?

5 years late on publication, where have these guys been?

But yes.

Oh, and not just Britain.

Oh, and this is all part of the plan.
