    Removed Targets for NHS/Police
    Scrapped ID cards
    Started to cut our deficit
    Stopped PFIs
    Stopped the NI increase
    Stopped sending aid to countries like Russia and China..etc

    Unlike Labours socialist policies, policies that the tories put into place take time to come into effect. Its easy for labour to come back into power and instantly start overspendign again but to cut budgets and make efficiency savings takes time and the results take time to be seen

    Well, we seem to have regained some political visibility on the world stage thanks to Libya. How long it'll last however is unknown.
    He's pledged aid for foreign countries which is good considering the current world climate.

    But you can't just say hat conservative ways are also great. Yes, their ways will bring up long-term benefits, but what do we do now? With Labour- yes they were chucking money into the economy - but that is what you meant to do during a recession to get it working again. By putting money into the economy it will start creating jobs and job incentive - when the economy is doing better you are to tax people more because people are confident about their life styles - you can't do this when country is already suffering economically as much as it can!

    Let's see an example: in Japan after the crisis - they didn't start taxing people massively to repair the damage - they threw millions into Japanese companies to stabilise the situation.

    He's been in power for a year. Of course he hasn't done anything anyway.

    People voted for the Conservatives at the last elections because they thought that somehow the Conservatives would clean things up and that Labour had left things in a "mess" (as the coalition loves to describe things).

    The fact is, to think that the state of the government finances is mostly Labour's fault, is a complete lie that is reiterated throughout the media and political discussions. The debt would still be where it is, give or take a few percent, no matter who had been in power. The financial crisis hit the UK a country that relies heavily on the financial services industry, a characteristic of the UK that has existed ever since the Big Bang of 1986 when the markets were deregulated and US, Swiss, German banks invaded the City to set up shop or to increase their presence.

    Even in the case of Labour, the measures that they took will only be seen in a decade or two especially when it comes to education. They totally turned around failing schools (rather than just closing them) and the impact of such measures can only be seen when those children reach working age.

    That statement is absolute nonsense. Anyone will tell you that cutting into budgets is very easy and simple and even then, the Tories are absolutely useless at it.

    Paul Martin as Finance Minister of Canada in the 90s simply cut all budgets by 20%. It's brutal, it's hard, it's socially-damaging (then again, people don't always realise that Canada is one of the most capitalistic countries in the world) but it achieves results and he was recognised for the efficiency and the speed of the implementation. With lightweights like Osborne at the helm of the finances, no wonder that the Tories have already created a complete mess, trying to help out some of their buddies in certain industries while seeing if they can punish those that have less influence on their policies (i.e. higher education).

    Any form of investment, by definition, takes years and decades to bear fruit.

    I hope you realise how nonsensical your statement is.
