Would moving the UK from 4th biggest economy to 7th and sinking fast appear in the list ?Or running the country based on a private sector debt boom, asset bubble followed by state debt apocalypse appear either ?I think there can only be three types of Labour supporters left. The stupid (who still believe what they are told to believe), the dishonest (who know its been a disaster - but enjoy being a Labour supporter and the friendships and don't want to lose them by putting the country first) and those who always intended this form of destruction of our country to achieve their socialist dreams at any cost.Labour have been the worst disaster to strike this country since WWII. The evidence is all around you.
I hope that at a time in the future when there may be a Conservative govt and they, and the country, are in a mess, I would be more charitable about the types of Conservative supporters that there are.
Unfortunately the country will be in a mess for 10 to 20 years ( if we are indecisive as Japan has been and stick with the Keynesian fallacies - though lacking Japan's high savings rates we probably can't source the debt ), there will be plenty of pain and grief for all and blame to be shared.I understand your a decent sort of a man, but the evidence is now overwhelming of Labour and especially Brown's key part in this unfolding national disaster.If the same happened at a future time and my party was responsible I would resign from it and vote against it. Country before party every time.As it happens my party moved the country from a basket case (1970's Lab IMF etc ) to one of the most successful economies in the world.If your country is broke you can't afford medicine, welfare, care for the elderly, or even to defend yourself. Since much of what we consume is produced over seas and must be traded for we run the risk of learning the harsh lesson that everything must be paid for very soon.Just ask those in Iceland, Ireland, Greece and Lithuania.
Much (albeit not all) of the problems we are in now are due solely to the mis-management of the labour government. It will take whichever party gets in years to sort it out but at least it can't get any worse!
