image for Accrington Man Is A Bit Annoyed

Steve Gaunt, of Accrington, has recently voiced his opinions on the global economic crisis and the reasons behind it, it was revealed by his close friends and family.

"I'm just a bit annoyed, really. The credit crunch is really hurting me and my family and we've done absolutely nothing wrong," he said.

"It seems to me that the rich and powerful, you know, the ones in charge of all the large corporations and banks, have been fiddling around with all our money and investments for years and years, finding loopholes in the law and short-selling shares that allow them to cream off massive profits through extremely dodgy processes that have resulted in nobody knowing where their assets actually lie or indeed if they're worth anything."

"Of course we, the public, who have invested our money in banks and received loans through legal application processes have lost out, and yet the people who made all the mistakes, the ones who were rich and powerful, are in fact now even richer."

"I mean, I know it's easy to complain but when 99.9% of the people who don't have a say in how business is done lose out financially, and the 0.1% of people who do have a say how business is done actually make more money, am I wrong to be a bit annoyed?"

When asked if he was planning any action to rectify the situation, or if indeed anything could be done at all, he replied, "Luckily we live in a democratic country, so in a few years' time I'll be able to cast a single vote that will be added up to decide who will be our next Prime Minister. Don't think we, the public, don't have a say."
