Thought Id start this one going because its rather dead on this board at the moment and I suppose all my usual muckers are either at the Stella tennis event watching Dim Tim (lose again) or at Henly Regatta eating cucumber sandwiches (they wish,...NOT).
Anyway please feel free to just talk to yourself blast away and let it go on any company or subject you wish. Just wish Id thought of this one before.

The results seem to be pointing to a one term government.
Must be a relief for many!

When the economy picks up from next year onwards the Conservatives will be back on top and get elected with a good majority.

The Labour party haven't worked out that the UK doesn't want socialism.

What is your definition of socialism?

The green should be at the borrom. I just saw David Dimbleby on BBC and some MPs asking the London Mayoral Green candidate what her policies were on the economy and other non green subjects. She was like a fish out of water. It ended up with her complaining that people were being rude to her. It was very funny. No competition from the Greens.

I suppose you left out Plaid Cymru as they had reach too high a degree of sophistication and they would be an unfair comparison for the motley.
Sometimes, I wonder whether democracy is the best way to govern.

It was a good example. An actual Green candidate. The Green MP for Brighton is just as bad. She is just a Socialist with a green tint.
That is the question! "If Green is in the correct position".

"She is just a Socialist with a green tint."
That is what some of the Right wing of the tory party is saying about Cameron.
More Banana Splits on the way.

I see Labour have made some serious gains....well for a good government they say that you need a good opposition...the only thing that worries me is that people have short memories...we are in the mess we are in because of them...it's the endless spending with the coffers empty that has put us in a tight position....have to say that britain need some jobs...essential for everybody.....very, very high priority...overtaxation like the previous labour government is not going to bring prosperity to this country...no doubt that some of the televised press will promote the lefties more than the right ...it seems a favourite thing for them to do....

Yes some do have short memories.
Go back to the period 2000-2006 and McMillan's "never had it so good" comes to mind, with many of the few tories left in government wanting more deregulation of the city and basking in "loads of money".
Also, the majority of pundits of that period congratulating Brown on his suppose good management of the economy and considering him to be successful. (Many however thought it was to good to be real.)
Or go back to the Thatcher period with boom and burst and flogging of the country's silver and instead of utilising the profits of the North Sea oil to improve the "infrastructure" of the UK, they squandered it.
Some do have short memories, others have memories which are often full of holes, which are made up for by their ability to confabulate.
It could be good to have a clown around in periods of stress.
Is he after Cameron's or George's job?
Have a guess he won't be aiming at that job until after the next election, possibly a tory defeat.
Wait and see with interest.

Fred, What about the gold lol, you seem to have forgot. I dont think you have a short memory or one full of holes but simply pick the best bits that suit what you debate about. Come on keep the playing field level. lol
Gordon Brown's decision to sell half of the UK's gold reserves 'cost UK £5billion'
Gordon Brown's decision to sell off part of the country's gold reserves 10 years ago cost the public purse nearly £5billion, official figures show.
That would of repaired a few schools or built a few hospitals.
Its no good keep going on about the cons when labour are even worse.

Data is there to be used.
Check the cost of the Faukland and Iraq wars again your £5billion
Look at the reasons given at the time for selling gold.
The Uk was not the only country to flog their gold.
Strange, but I always think of trinkets of little intrinsic value when gold is mentioned.
It is like a marker in the sand waiting for the tide to come in.
Have a good weekend the world is coming to the end.
