1 In an economic crises of the 1920s the goverment passed the geddes act or some such name and cut the wages of all state employees by some 15% , it caused a near mutiny in the navy. Dole was cut to.

Greece is selling off remote Islands and Italy Mountains. At fixed price or nearest offer . OK we could sell off Britians best views - lake district or Highlands.
A much better scheme SELL STUFF ON E-BAY. think its the Asian billionaires who have the most spare cash.
The stuff in the British Museum , it could never be sourced to day with all the restrictions on antiquaties leaving their location.

Don't bother upgrading Tridant- the nuclear sub-defence system. We cant afford it. What is it that Bond villians do - the steal say a prototype death ray and offer to sell it to the highest bidder. So sell Tridant on e-bay. Screw the Americans who are plotting to screw us over BP. Only sell it for gold. My guess is that the worlds top exporting and manufacturing nation China will buy it off us . They want this system we need the money.
