Re: The Tories

I know and to think there was a wall to keep them out as well, but it fell into disrepair due to government cuts

It is Ok John, when the kilt wearers get independence, they will rebuild it to keep us on this side of it.

Re: The Tories

Re: The Tories

You are still doing it...posting links with one liners.
You want a debate about what good the Tories have done in 13 months........I do not like mud slinging type arguments/discussions, harping back to the past....but in this instance I really do not have a choice.
The last 13 months the coalition government(not the tories) have been trying to clear up the mess left by 13 years of labour chucking money about like it was falling from the sky as rain.
You think that 13 months is time enough to put things right do you? From where I am sitting it seems like you have the better end of the deal here.....free prescriptions, free university tuition, free care for the elderly.
SUMO! (shut up-move one) and I mean that most respectfully. We all have to suffer these privations because of bad financial policy - no regulation of the banking industry - the sale of gold reserves at a time when we didn't actually need the money....by a Labour chancellor...just in case you are in any doubt......of course there were global influences in force too, but they were not the whole story.......and the Labour givernment knew about these 7 months before they actually let on or did anything at all about it.
The open door policy of the Labour government let in people who should not be here.......who have claimed money from the communal pot.
I could go on and on.

And Mancie if you are reading this....these observations do not make me a tory or even anti labour, they just make me someone who can see both sides of the situation.....non partisan....one of those floating voters that the parties all cosy up to.

Thank goodness somebody with no political allegiance has pointed it out AGAIN, maybe just maybe this guy may just get it in time, but I ain't holding my breath

My income has risen and my rent,gas and electric have all gone down.

There have of course been significant price rises but with cutting out waste and having a stricter management control of my finances I find life is not as bad as the picture you constantly paint.Get a grip.We will get through.

Re: The Tories

If the coalition government hadn't taken the financial steps that they did, then we would have found ourselves in a similar position to Ireland...with out credit rating downgraded......we really would be in the doo doo then.

The IMF ... all of a sudden this government have managed to dig up some IMF forecast that states economic growth is being slowed down by these across the board cuts... the IMF have made reports every 6 months for decades and always like cuts by any government in the western world.. what pathetic attempt by the ConDems to reassure people in this country that we have to take the pain of these savage cuts aimed at the less well off, the sick and the old... wake up man!
