Save or the pig gets it...

(Paddy O'Connell, for it is he, writes...)

May I sit down here, and simply say hello on my first foray into the blog?

Everyone who normally hosts PM is away, and so if I had to sum up the programme today in an image it would be of this piggy bank. Everything it stood for has been turned on its head, and you'll know the reasons why. Tonight we'll look at the latest financial developments.

Does it seem to you that future generations, or even PM listeners under the age of 45, are going to pay a higher proportion of the bill? They're the ones who will retire later and now taxpayers must prop up the banks?

If you're at all interested, I'm not yet authorised to post on the blog myself. Marc is filtering this, so he might have altered it, and made it look foolish.
