    Unless you have lived through the Coalition's cuts, seen libraries and hospitals closing left and right, watched the potholes appear and the roads flood, stood by as your local government gets privatised, turned the heat off in half the house and huddled in the other half, and gotten a 20% pay cut on top of it...if you're employed, well you may or may not have all that to experience, depending on how hard you fight it.
    The Olympics were a Potemkin event covering up a multitude of sins. People with terminal cancer are being forced to work as are people with profound mental illness, or they will lose their meagre disability allowance. When the good folks in the government turn Scrooge here, they're very good at it. After all, they invented the concept.
