Cameron or Castro?

1 Mins

Is David Cameron taking a page out of Fidel Castro’s book?

I came across a story in the paper about the Cuban economy today that sent the alarm bells ringing in my head. It would seem that David Cameron is mimicking Fidel Castro.

To save you from reading the Telegraph story, here’s my summary.

The Cuban government is deep in debt and needs to make drastic cuts. (like the UK!)
So, the government has laid off a large amount of public sector workers. (like the UK!)
The newly-unemployed workers are instead being encouraged to set up small businesses. (like the UK!)

See where I’m going with this? Frightening.
