    Not quite. But they need to stop bribing voters with freebies that ultimatley need paying for.

    My predictions are. The oresent government will do the ground work for the recovery that will be unpopular and criticised. They loose in 2015. The groundwork would've been done and come to fruition in about 2017. Labour will claim the credit after not changing any of teh repsent governments policies.

    They'll do something daft. The economy will crash again. Torys will get voted back in and the cycle begins again.

    That's exactly what's been happening for the last 30 years. It's staggering that so many people are blind to it. Only a fool repeats his actions and expects a different result.

    I know. Thatcher got the blame for sorting out Callaghans mess. Blair got the credit for Majors success. Cameron gets the Blame for Blair mistakes.

    I pray that Milliband doesn't get in. I just do not want him representing me on the world stage.

    People that say Capatalism caused the banking crisis clearly don't quite understand what happened.

    Aritificially fixing prices and interest rates,, government intervention, that is a huge part of what precipitated the crisis.

    And a government that is needlessly running at a deficit at the height of a boom is not a good government.
    Well said, it's a shame Cameron is PM and not Boris!

    You're after an electorate that can make reasoned decisions. To quote one of my lecturers. 'I stopped voting when I realised the person who got voted in was by the 8 million people who the Sun newspaper told them to vote for.'

    Hmmm but it's worth a try anyway.


    Plus being on the electoral roll is good for your credit rating!
