"On October 15th, we will meet on the streets to initiate the global change we want. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organize until we make it happen."

Can anyone tell me how these people are going to 'make it happen', and what 'it' is?

Rick'scafe - I cannot understand your first sentence. VAT increases target purchasers of all income. Those who spend more pay more VAT.

Maybe we should all have taken notice of what our grand-fathers taught us. "If you can't afford it don't buy it" I was always brought up to believe that if I wanted something and had the cash to buy it, then o.k. buy it. If I didn't have the cash to buy it then do without, until you did have the cash to buy it. This has always worked well for me. I have never been in debt for anything in my life, except when buying my house. I have no intention of ever going into debt. I have never borrowed money in my life except to buy my house. That did nothing but give me great worries until I paid it off.

How people can use a credit card just to buy Christmas presents etc. I can not understand. They deserve to get taken to the cleaners for being so stupid. Teach their kids that they can't always have what they want. I think it is this sort of thing only on a larger scale that has caused the present financial problems.

Maybe I have the wrong attitude, but I am o.k. financially now and have all the money I need. The thing that troubles me is maybe my money should be stuffed in the mattress and not in a bank account.

If people of the world just sat down for five minutes,and had a think about what they were doing with their own lives, instead of following a 'popular cause', then there might be a bit of sanity breaking out.

It's difficult to tell other people what to do.

woolwell, VAT affects a higher proportion of poorer people's income.

Careful what you say about stuffing money in a mattress, didn't Ken Dodd and (Sir) Lester Piggott try that?.

Regarding VAT then it depends which publication you read. This is a fair and I think non-political view JRF. You have to look at it from the expenditure point of view.

fourm member "The human race has always moved forward as the result of the efforts of a very limited number of the population who, unlike the mass, did not allow themselves to be led by the nose into following whatever line was set for them."

And may we ask if you consider yourself to be part of the 'mass'? And if not, what sets you apart?

"Morddwyd - "None of those were protests against financial equality" - Oh really?"

Yes, really. Those protests were against the ruling classes, not the financial classes, not the same thing at all.

And who are the ruling classes, surely not the people with the most finance?.
