As chancellor George Osborne and Prime Minister David Cameron supervise Britain's plunging credit rating, yet fecklessly find millions to fund further murderous overseas meddling, a clue emerges as to their destructive mindset.
At Oxford both Osborne and Cameron were, with Boris Johnson, members of the notorious Bullingdon Club.
The Country Standard has quoted Cameron as describing "a typical night" when "things got out of hand and we'd had a few drinks. We smashed up the place and Boris set fire to the toilets."
Things have gone downhill since then, with allegations that in an "initiation ceremony" new members of the Bullingdon Club have to burn a £50 note in front of a beggar.
It seems the destruction, alleged financial thoughtlessness and inhumanity can now be practised on a worldwide basis.
In Britain the figurative burning of taxpayers' £50 notes in orders of magnitude, by irresponsible former Bullingdon boys with a mindset seemingly unchanged, is now running the country.
