It’s a scary thought, but is there any point in reporting in the media on the financial crisis when possibly the most important communications of the past few years are held back from us. Then as is said there was a ‘loaded gun’ pointed at the government to accept a bank bailout. There was obviously a reason and a contingency plan set in place by the ECB because they knew cracks were showing right across the board and they wanted to contain it, in private, possibly to stop mass panic and a run on the banks. If as suggested these letters are held back because of the fear our government can’t implement the ‘current economic strategy’ if the content was known, I think we need to know, in order to make an informed decision as to why we’re in this mess and how to proceed to fix the situation.
