And so is the protests/unrest.

This question, for the wealthiest 2% of the nation: How much do you value your new tax cuts? Are those cuts worth more than the safety of our corner of civilisation? Remember, you can only "bread & circus" the general population until the threshold of perceived value has been crossed. Britain is experiencing the threshold of perceived value now.

I hope it's all worth it to you.
