Challenge The Narrative

Challenge the dominant narrative – that’s what we’ve learned from smartMeme. Up until now, the coalition government has managed to lay the blame of our economic woes at the door of public spending – even though the recession was caused by the behaviour of the big banks, or more accurately – the structure of our financial system. This slight of hand has allowed for the vicious cuts in public service provision which Cabinet Ministers themselves admit are driven by ideology more than economic sense.

That’s why False Economy is such a strong campaign. Have a look at the video –

It firmly juxtaposes the detrimental impacts of the cuts with the reason why we’re in such a mess – a global deregulated banking system that was too big to fail.
