It is not often that I am moved to write about such a controversial mainstream piece of output and I came across it whilst browsing comment on Essex’s best kept secret. “What is that?” I hear you ask. “Foulness Island”, I say. Look it up, for I am not going to enlarge on that place here. No, instead I am going to talk briefly about the film, which you can find from the link at the end of this comment. I had half a mind not to complete my viewing of it, what with the attention span being somewhat short at the moment, perceiving it initially as a conspiracy theory/sensationalist filmette. Something kept me going and by the time I got to the end, it reminded me of remarks I made back in 2008 about there being cause for concern that people might take to the streets if the economy continued to nosedive. Well, take to the streets they certainly did, though the ensuing riots seemed in some ways to divert attention away from the real issues.
It would appear that despite assurances to the contrary, the economy is about to get much worse rather than better. There are, I can assure you, ticking financial time bombs just waiting to go off that haven’t even made it into the tabloids. Mis-sold mortgages are next on the menu and the resulting claims could make PPI look rather small fry. The banks continue to sell dodgy products to the unsuspecting consumer, all the while paying bigger and bigger bonuses to their staff.
We are certainly in a mess. Watch the film and then share it with your friends.
