Oh cheer up Matt. You lost, the electorate have spoken, and yes, it was messy but guess what fellas, the parties over, and in the past few days the media who have for so long been scared witless of being ostriciesed by the Labour spin and media machine have been growing more and more confident and are now only just now hinting at how bad a state the countries finances are thanks to Browns fantastic ability to run an economy by borrowing more and more without the slightest idea of how to repay it (not even taking into account the bank bail out). There should be some really interesting stories hitting the media in the next few weeks or so once past hidden sums are made public. Yes, there will be tax rises, this would have happened no matter who was going to do the financial planning. Yes, there will be cuts, again this would have happened regardless, and all I can here is Labour supporters going 'The nasty Tories are going to cut this, and raise that' without them expending the energy to realise who got us in this mess to begin with (and it's nothing to do with a 'global downturn\recession either), or what action would have to be taken by whoever was going to be in power.
Arrrghhhhhh. And I haven't even had a drink.
And DC's fantastic ability to get Lamont to enter the ERM back in 1992 and then out again costing the country 3.3 Billion. I take it you will be canceling your subscription to the Daily Mail now ?Browns fantastic ability to run an economy by borrowing more and more without the slightest idea of how to repay it
I think it's all going to end in tears and we'll have to endure another General Election in October.
Well looks like we are going to get Clegg for Deputy PM, someone who is from a different party from the PM and actually lost seats at the election will run the country in the PM's absence. Strange times.
My lasting memory of the Major government is the constant news stories of the cabnets constent bickering, especially about the EU. They went through 3 post major leaders in as meny years before 'settling' on Cameron. The fact is they love arguing amongst themselves so much what hope of the LibDems got of holding them together for 4 years? This will fall out inside of 18 months easy and my moneys on the EU being the ultimate catalyst. Foriegn Secratary William Hague is going to make some anti-EU blunder that's going to piss the pro-EU Lib Dem's off something cronic and the whole thing is going to fall apart.
At which point a general election will result in a hung parliament with Conservative's having the most seats, and another 4 days of Lib Dems and Torys trying to come to a deal to form a coalition.
Mean while this country is heading down the pain faster than Greece and Spain combined. Maybe Iceland can bail us out?
