Recently the Government has had a tought time of things with the backbench revolt over top up fees and opostion to the Iraq war typified by the bulid up to the Hutton report. What are your views of how sucessful Tony Blair and labour have been. I appreciate that immigration is going to be a major issue however personally i would like to refrain from debating it, Tony obviously realises there is a problem and has done little to deal with it, and if you want to debate it there are a other threads on it and its also been discussed heavily in the BNP threads.

Do you think the following things have improved:
Education
Economcy
Health Care
Britain's standing in the world
Law and order
and lastly how do you precieve the Prime Minister, given that Tony has been acussed of making the country more Republic like?

he started off with a clean slate and has gradually managed to get a bad image. he ignored the majority protestors over iraq and has become too close to america. his close relationship with america is blurring his view on things. i personally feel he has neglected his own country to address foreign affairs. instead of all this involvement in sorting out other countries i think he should take a look at england and sort out OUR problems first. Overall i want him OUT of government and a new party in because i am fed up with labour

What issues do you precieve as problems in Britain at the moment?
Obviously the war on terror and immigrations are major ones however in terms of the economy it is in very good shape at the moment.

I think he means the march which was obviously a very powerful gesture

yea i did mean the protestors in london, there were a million, and thats just the ones who could be bothered to do something. anyways when i saw problems i dont mean economially i mean crime. one thing he promised was reduction in crime, i know i cannot blame labour for the rise in crime but they have failed to respond with force. where i live (nottingham) we have had 9 fatal shootings in the past 15 months, and 49 people injured through gunshots the latest fatal killing being yesterday

Do you mean he is anti-Euro in principle or anti-Euro until the five economic tests are satisfied?
