Have your say

readers of the Star may wonder why Sheffield can apparently no longer afford essential services when, despite the global financial crisis, real income in the UK is greater now than it was in 2003 (when apparently we did have enough money for libraries and social services).

The answer is that this is not a short-lived crisis, it is the inevitable consequence of long-term greed by those who already have far more than they need.

The “haves” take so much of our national income, there is simply not enough for those who created the wealth in the first place.
