We are being watched. Every move we make and everything that we say is being analysed down to the last letter. Even our reaction to these analyses is being watched. One would think that I am describing something, as clichéd as it has now become to do so, out of George Orwell’s 1984. However, the truth is far more insidious. When I say we are being watched I mean the Government and the country at large is being watched. The people doing the watching are the people in the money markets. They are expecting everything to come crashing down around us any day now and as a result, the cost for us to borrow money on the international money markets has soared. What no one can be certain of is when this collapse will finally hit us.
