Origins of the present mass protest
Good description by Andrew Rawnsley of the fear, resentment and anger.
Fear for your job if you still have one and fear that you may not see work again if you are already unemployed.
Resentment that the agony is not being evenly shared and that some will profit from the miseries of others.
Anger with the unapologetic financiers who made billions from their follies and left less affluent folk to pick up the bill.
If Henry Porter was 20 years younger he would take to the streets.
