What do I see here? And you?

_dsf4802lrR8, England at Home, from It’s Christmas Again

Brighton, England. One of the most amazing things happening in the western world is Christmas. And the English love Christmas! They buy and buy and buy, non stop from November onwards until madness shopping in December. The funny thing is they’re buying essentially imported goods. From the EU, from China from everywhere. And the British balance of payments is collapsing for 15 years now.

While the English reduce themselves to ghostly silhouettes surrendering to consumerism, Germany and other nations fll their pockets with Sterling. Regrettably, this is the only way England feels at home.

Sadly, other countries desperately replicate this childish behaviour and Christmas is just about consumerism nowadays – and getting in debt.
