Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, you are referring to the stereotypical upper middle class and upward type of folks. Unless the electorate tires of them and their self serving actions and stays tired until new elections are called there is little that can happen. But, if willing to upset some apple carts, a lot could be done and there are almost certainly lots of Brits willing to do it.

Going full bore import substitution would be the best thing the government could do. Else they could find out why things are so difficult in places like Venezuela. But to get such a program going there would likely have to be a serious reform of the current situation with the popular press.
