That is exactly what Mr Brown is hoping people will spread.
Some will believe it, the remainder will face facts and the truth.
Facts and truth of what? They won’t be able to buy a new car for the next 3-4 years? They won’t be able to have 3 holidays/year for the next 3 years?
They will wear their clothes for longer time and shop for food at Netto/Lidl instead of Marc and Spencer?
Some Brits will just re-learn that life does not consist on purchasing stuff and shopping-therapies…
