I still think that having the country run by an individual party is going to take us all to where we don't want to be. To have the SNP in Downing Street running the show with Labour, when only 6 months ago the SNP wanted independence from the rest of the UK kind of beggars belief. The SNP's allegiance is to Scotland rather than the UK and always will be. They lost their referendum fair and square and as far as I'm concerned have no right to be running UK plc they didn't want to be part of it and 6 months later they want it all... I'd be banned on here from telling them where to go
Red Ed, there's just something about him that's missing, certainly leadership skills, often gets caught on the hop and definitely always getting his photograph taken at the wrong time. I don't think the British public have yet forgiven the Labour party for their last efforts in Parliament or how they managed to allow this country to come to its knees. I think for Red Ed, retirement looms shortly along with Nick Clegg of the Liberal Democrats.
You can also forget about Natalie Bennett of the Green party, she'd have us all recycling day and night, have windmills in our back gardens, wants fossil free fuel and wants everyone taxed to the hilt to pay for it all.
This leaves David Cameron, who seems hell bent on selling the remains of the silver, can't sell the gold as Gordon Brown did that, anyway back to Dave, in the papers today he's on about selling Lloyd's bank shares, well they are not his to sell the taxpayer bailed out the banks and the taxpayer should receive all the money back (might help clear some of the £1.5 trillion debt) Seems to be offering all sorts from tax breaks to selling more social housing stock, but at what cost? The nation is in debt up to it's eyeballs and no one wants to clear it, might be ok now, but sometime in the future everyone's kids are going to have to pick up the tab. I firmly believe that reports of how our economy is glowing month in month out are false and misleading, it may well be glowing in certain sectors i.e. banking but this was the industry that brought the country into recession in the first place and will probably do so again.
UKIP, for some unknown reason I like Nigel, seems to talk to the man on the street at the same level. He knows that the borders of this country need to be tightened up and that the UK should be ruled by the UK rather than an unelected European parliament. Seems to me that out of everyone standing at the forthcoming election he is the only one who truly believes in democracy. I don't expect UKIP to win, but they will get my vote.
I think for the time being anyone not living in Wales can forget about Plaid Cymru They won't be coming down the M4 to number 10...
