To be honest you can say that the current situation is all Labor fault but I think that's a massive over simplification of whats going on at the
moment, in terms of global affairs, sure a lot of that could be said to be Blair's fault, he certainly didn't help the situation.
Truth is though that if the Tory's had been in charge we would still be in the same mess we are in now, because they would have been into Bush even
more, heck you could easily speculate we would be in an even worse mess.
Now Brown is incompetent, he knew he would never be Prime Minister if we were allowed to vote on it, he did not do a sterling job even when he was
working under Blair, and has done an even worse one as PM, also clearly Labor don't have an obvious candidate to step up to the front, and so they
are pretty screwed, him doubly because he will be remembered as the one who made the mess, even though really its a lot of different things, including
his predecessor's terms.
So who do we vote for now ? I said it in another thread that came up about uk voting recently, its like asking what kind of stick you want to be
beaten with, metal or wood, I'd rather not be beaten by a stick at all but there's no magic wand option.
I think the Tories will take the country in the wrong direction, true I don't see any party stepping up and taking us in a real right direction, but
I do think things will be unnecessarily rough under the Tories rule, and I would expect THEM to get at least 8 years out of it, and depending on
global affairs and labor maybe even longer, we could see some viscous english neo con ideology developed in the not too distant future, something I do
not want to see.
Labor is not going to win, Lib Dem's are the only option that MAY surprise everyone, and maybe we need a really fresh hand on the rudder.
Also "tax and spend" is surely better then "tax and embezzle", again i feel the argument is like choosing the flavor of your poison.
