Synopses & Reviews
For the last five years, Britain has been under the hammer of Austerity. In its name, wages have been frozen, benefits have been slashed and public spending squeezed. The pain of a financial crisis caused by bankers and speculators has been borne by ordinary people all over the country and by the poor and disabled most of all.
A scathing critique of UK austerity and the long-term project to deliver our public services into the hands of corporations.
