One thing they cant erase is how the country did when they were in power.
Labour seems to have destroyed the good times, religiously. Yet they keep coming back, so i doubt its going to matter a jot.
Perhaps if UKIP was added to the mix in the British parliament (fresh blood) and a three party government take office, perhaps that might sort out tptb, from what I have seen of Nigel Farage on youtube, he might do some good.
It remains to be seen if Labour will be any better (if they get in) but they couldn't possibly be any worse.
It's all very well hating on the Government simply because you have some deep seated hatred of the Tories, but the figures coming in prove that "Austerity" (which in all honesty is simply spending within our means and not promising golden handouts to everyone like Labour) has not "all but killed" the country.
Granted, the recovery is patchy at the moment but things will pick up for everyone once it gets under way.
But yes, we do need a reboot and a wholesale reform of the current system, but at the same time, don't think for one minute the NE has been forgotten.
It does seem that this Government suffers from a chronic lack of self-publicity though and fails to hammer home the good things that are happening,....
.....instead allowing their opponents to control the debate and point out "failures".
