In the context of the government raid on doctors' pensions Victoria Coren makes the following observation:
"... They are busting a gut to persuade us that we're "all in it together" and that any public sector workers who choke at longer hours or slashed wages are "greedy" and "not team players".But they weren't "greedy" 10 years ago, were they? They worked and they got paid. They only became "greedy" after our masters had sold off the gold reserves, borrowed fantasy amounts with fantasy collateral, allowed the banks to gamble with it, watched them lose and lose until the creditors came calling, bailed them out with more of our money, then sat back as it was paid out in bonuses to people who had too many yachts already.

God knows we were treated like idiots all along – but if we buy this new propaganda, we deserve no better...."
