As much as I strongly oppose this decision, and distrust all politicians more than dodgy used car dealers, I think the blame for this one lies firmly at the feet of the fat cat bankers who bankrupted this country in the first place.  If Labour suddenly got in to power after a shock election next month, I'd bet my house they wouldn't reverse the decision despite all the rhetoric.  I bet they're glad they didn't have to do the dirty work themselves.


I agree in someways.........but I think it was Labour & Brown who carried on spending, when the money just was not there to spend :evil:  :evil:  Now look what we are landed with :(  :(

Plus I read today we are increasing the overseas aid to 11.5 billion and cutting back on defence and other major things in this country

Well you can at least always rely on politicians to make matters even worse than they already are :)

How else can they afford to buy our equipment that we can't afford.

Wouldn't it be ironic if one of the aided countries was to attack one of our borders/colonies with the money that has effectively been 'saved' from the military budget?

Wasn't suggesting earlier that the current govt is better/worse than the old one, nor that a reversal of power would make everything better,  merely that a lot of the first decisions taken after the election seemed aimed at reversing anything significant the last lot did in an act of sticking two fingers up at them.  Not that some of said decisions were a bad idea.  However, a lot of them have proved very controversial, and the whole Nimrod/Harrier/Ark thing is a joke.

Government.  If you think the problems they create are bad, you should see their solutions.

Good thing I'd just put my tea down - the old hot beverage/keyboard interface is never a good idea!
